Let go of the needless things

 

It was good to get back to church after being ill for over a week; I was ready to see people again. My dog was my constant companion while I felt out of sorts. He would hardly let me out of his sight. When I rested in the recliner he was there, if I laid on the couch he was there.

The other afternoon he was so happy when I decided to spend some time in the sun. We walked around looking at plants and I swept some piles of leaves off the porch. He was barely out of my sight when I noticed he was carrying something in his mouth. He wouldn’t come to me but I was able to see that he had a plastic bag with some kind of sandwich in it. I had no idea where it came from but it had to be close to the house. I watched him for a few minutes and realized, he didn’t know what to do with it, but he sure was proud he had it. He made a big circle around the drive with it and then pranced across the porch. I was able to stop him and take the bag from him. Some other animal had to have carried that to my yard because it was something I never eat. He followed me back to the garbage can and once the lid was closed seemed satisfied that he didn’t need it.

I wonder how many of us are carrying around something that we don’t know what to do with. Carrying it around for all to see and just proud to have it but don’t have a clue what to do with it. It could be just an idea we formed or perhaps we were hurt by someone and the slight has brought some recognition our way. Or maybe it is a thing. What else are we to do with these things but carry them? Trying to sort through over 30 years of stuff has taught me a lot. If I don’t have a use for it I need to let it go. It’s a slow process and some things require careful thought, but there is satisfaction in knowing that when the lid is closed it’s gone. I don’t need it.

Have a great week and give God the glory!
