Guidance of the Day:
Become Clutter-Free: The reason so many people end up letting clutter take over their lives is that they have never felt or experienced the joy of a clutter-free home. There is, however, something incredibly peaceful about a clutter-free home: opening a closet and actually having space to hang up something; open a drawer without having to use force; being able to find virtually everything you look for; having open, airy space where there is nothing at all.
There is something effortless and pleasant about sitting at your desk and being able to see the surface and to find your address book. There is something equally freeing about opening a kitchen cabinet and being able to choose easily and quickly from your favorite pots and baking trays without having to sort through and push back as if you were trampling through a thick forest.
Becoming clutter-free is an easy way to simplify your life and to feel more organized and in control. It gives you a peaceful feeling of space. It lifts your emotional spirit by giving you a feeling of openness and of being connected to, rather than overwhelmed by, life. [Carlson, Don't Sweat the Small Stuff -- with your family]
Food for Thought:
Prayer is a means of adding power to the strength we already possess. Sometimes we know what is right, but we lack the will power to do it. Time spent on the knees in prayer will do more good to remedy heart strain and nerve worry than anything else. A man is continually at prayer when he lives according to truth.
