Actually, I don't have a sense of needing anything personally. I've learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances. I'm just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I've found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty. Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am. Philippians 4:11-13 (MSG)
I've been slowly working on uncluttering my life. I started with my office and began going through drawers and shelves. I'm amazed how much "stuff" gets built up over time. I'm flabbergasted at how much "stuff" I store that I don't use and don't need. It seems to me that there is a little known universal principle in life: "stuff" will accumulate in direct proportion to the amount of space you allow for it.
I had an apartment and accumulated an apartment's worth of "stuff." So, I bought a house so I would have "plenty of space" and the "stuff" grew to fill it. I moved to a larger house with a garage so that I might have more space and the "stuff" followed me and multiplied. "Stuff" is viral.
I've noticed a consistent thread through God's message to me: "be content." So, little by little, I'm purging "stuff." The closet in my office is next.
