Happy Sunday, ladies! I hope you’re enjoying the last weekend of 2019. It’s hard to believe that we will ring in a new decade in just a few days.
We have been busy at our house, cleaning and organizing. I love this time of year because I am always ready to declutter and get rid of things we don’t need or haven’t used in a while.
We moved into this house in May 2018. We have an unfinished basement, and everything we weren’t sure about, we put in the basement thinking within a few months we would get it all organized.
Then in August of 2018, Wayne’s father passed away, and just three months later, in November, his Mom passed away.
January 2019 began the long process of cleaning out their home of 60+ years. It took months and months! And all the while, we were adding some of their things to our basement.
Truthfully I avoided the basement because I would have a panic attack every time I went down there!
We knew as soon as Christmas was over this year, we were going to tackle our basement, and we’ve spent several days down there organizing and getting rid of a ton of stuff. It has felt so good!
I’m happy to say it looks much better, and we will start the New Year with a decluttered basement.
As I thought about getting rid of clutter, I couldn’t help but think about some of the clutter in my heart.
I shared this quote last week, It’s a good time of year for letting go. Let’s not drag all our regrets into 2020. Let’s repent, make amends where we can, and move on.
What are some things from 2019 that we need to let go of and move on? Let’s not bring our hurts or bitterness into 2020.
Ecclesiastes 3:6 says, there is a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away.
As we ring in 2020 I’m throwing out the hurt I was still letting weigh me down. What do you need to throw out? Let me know in the comments.
Have a blessed day!
