it’s crazy to come into contact with “things” that you have just to have, just in case…it’s crazy to actually see the excess of kitchenware, toys, clothes, books (which, i never have understood the reason why i’ve kept them. i’ve read them – rarely do i re-read a book, so why do i have them?)  and that word, excess has been laying heavy on me lately.  i have excess and why when so many have so little?  why did i ever need two sets of knives and a few choice knives?  i don’t.  i definately think i can live without most of my belongings.  so i have been challenged…my husband recently throw out a word that has always interested me – minimalist.  i think there are many different degrees, so to speak, of living this type of lifestyle.  and for me, it’s an awareness of being a good steward.  it will enable me to better serve and give to others.  because i don’t need two sets of knives.
