Caring for Less

I have come to a point in my life where I am ready to care for less.

I am not talking about caring less.

I am talking about caring MORE.

I want to care enough to have less so that I have more to share.

My stuff beckons me. It demands my time.  But I will be deaf and blind to it.

I will use my time to do what I am called to do–to be present and care for the people that God brings into my life.

I am ready.  Less cars, less house, less yard, less things, and less stuff.

Life is short and there are no guarantees.

What about you?  What do you care more or less about?

    We gave up the big house ten years ago, and have continued to slowly clear out the clutter of existence to clear space for life and caring. It is always a surprise to discover what I am clinging to that is getting in my way of living more fully! Things, patterns of thought, ways of living, actions….all deserve scrutiny. Sometimes, I just cannot look that closely.

    Hi Marti, thanks for sharing your experience. We too are giving up the big house but you are ahead of us. I have no doubt that I am being distracted from my primary purpose on this earth by the stuff that owns me. I am starting to take significant steps daily. It is time.

    Peace to you,
