This is an email I’ve had since 2006 when things were particularly rough. I feel it’s worthy enough to be posted because a lot of you can probably use the words.
CLEANING HOUSE 2009
Last Week I threw out Worrying. It was getting old and in the way.
It kept me from being me; I couldn’t do things God’s way.
I threw out a book on MY PAST (didn’t have time to read it anyway).
Replaced 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 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 an OLD FRIEND. Haven’t seen him in a while.
I believe his name is GOD. Yes I really like His style.
He helped me to do some cleaning and added some things Himself.
Like PRAYER, HOPE AND FAITH, 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.
Its 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.
