Last week I threw out worrying, it was getting in the way. It kept me from being me; I couldn’t do things God way.

I threw out a book on MY PAST, Didn’t have time to read it anyway.

Replace it with NEW GOALS, started reading it today.

I threw out HATE and BAD MEMORIES, remember how I treasured them so.

GOT me a NEW PHILOSOPHY too, threw out the old one from long ago.

Brought in some new books too, called I CAN, I WILL, AND I MUST.

Threw out I might, I think and I ought.

WOW, you should’ve seen the dust.

I ran across and OLD FRIEND, I hadn’t talked to in a while.

His name is GOD the Father, and I  

really like His style.

He helped me to do some cleaning and added some things Himself.

Like PRAYER, HOPE, FAITH AND LOVE, Yes I placed them right on the shelf.

I picked up this special thing and placed it at the front door.

I FOUND IT- its called PEACE. Nothing gets me down anymore.

Yes, I’ve got my house looking nice.

Looks good around the place.

For things like Worry and Trouble there just isn’t any space.

It’s good to do a little house cleaning, Get rid of the things on the shelf.

It sure makes things brighter; maybe you should TRY IT YOURSELF.

    • Halleluiah!
      Thank you for this blog!
      I had just clean house to, I didn’t know how much junk I had accumulated with my thoughts.
      Demetra this is a point well made.
      There’s a verse in the bible about a “House” being swept and garnish. This verse applys to all of us, because what it mean is that when the house is swept and garnish there’s no more junk in it and old stuff is rid of.
      The cleaning is our heart and mind and all the unwanted stuff that is not needed can be tossed.
      When the house is clean, the attitude is clean. When the thougths are purge, then they are pure.
      Thank you again for this comments, I look forward to hearing more from you.
      Welcome to the site! You will find it very interesting!!!

    • Ain’t no doubt that your Gods child.  You have a beautiful way with words and a poet’s heart.  Clean house girl and keep it up; cause you know spring cleaning needs to happen every year but dust collects daily.  Do you!
