Mind Clutter 1 - Color

Sometimes, mind clutter can be something as simple as a picture you are sick of walking by.  You may think of that as object clutter;  however, when you think of it often enough that it really bugs you, it seems to me it has become mind clutter.  I suppose it has become object clutter as well, but that is up to you to decide.

Most things I write about come from something in my life.  I love color and the beauty of nature, but lately, I have found my life sadly lacking in the color and activity that helped nurture my personality for so long.

I refuse to become a statistic, stuck in a drab life, not enjoying the color diversity that God has so obviously bestowed upon our world.  For the second or third time, I am reading Heaven is for Real.  In the book, Colton talked about the color he saw in Heaven.  John the Apostle wrote about color in the Book of Revelation, Chapter 21.  There is color and light there beyond my imagination: of that, I am sure.

So where am I going with this?  God must love color.  After all, he created color in more shades than I ever dreamed.  I am made in His image, and I love color too.  In fact, I get a little bored with everything staying the same.

One of the things I have grown tired of looking at is my blog backgrounds and headers.  I will say, "I'm sorry to all of you who love things to stay the same."  In all seriousness, for those who did my poll, I heard what you said.  I tried tying my blogs by the backgrounds and colors, and it bothered me.  Since I have to see my blogs more than anyone else, as I write and preview to make sure they look right before I publish, I am doing what I need to do for me.  I am bidding adieu to my own water color background.  What more can can I say, than I have grown weary of it?! 

Good-bye mind and computer clutter.
 It is time for a change.

33 Items Decluttered in 2014


  1. I love coming here! It always, always motivates me to let go of things that are bringing me down. We are getting ready to participate in a community-wide yard sale. It feels SO good to let go of things that we really don't need or use. Now, if I can just figure out a way to get some tables and deliver them to the yard sale spot to put stuff on!!! :) I know God will make a way. You always encourage and inspire me, my friend! Love you!

    1. Thank you Cheryl. Do you have any old doors you could put on sawhorses or ladders you could use to lay planks of wood across? How about borrowing some smaller shelves or tables from home and marking them not for sale? Could you borrow a couple from church? Have fun with the sale.


Thank you for your comments. Deborah
