I have some clutter issues. You can tell this by looking at my fridge (that’s not my fridge, but mine’s almost as messy). Buried among the magnets, artwork, appointment reminders, photos and other stuff are scraps of inspiration taped on the fridge in desperate moments. Some have been there for years (I know, I have issues) and some are brand new.
I glanced up the other day, noticed some patterns in the pieces, and thought I’d share them with you:
Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam;
so DROP THE MATTER before a dispute breaks out.
–Proverbs 17:14 (emphasis mine)
Let us consider how we may spur one another on
toward love and good deeds.
Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience
. . .above all, clothe yourselves with love
And finally, this nugget from a thought-provoking post by Robin at Pensieve:
People withhold from others
the very thing they need themselves.
Hmm. . . I think I’m hearing a familiar refrain. Perhaps I need to take care of myself and show more compassion for others.
Sometimes just collecting the pieces and finding the patterns works for me.
What does your refrigerator say about you?
