I just spent 3 hours sorting through the papers on my desk and other locations to shred old mail, throw away junk mail and organize billing statements. I am looking at my living room floor and it is still a mess with piles here and there. I did manage to throw away a garbage sack and a box full of paper.
I am a stacker by nature, which means that I have many stacks of papers, to do lists, and stacks of things I will get to eventually. Don't move a stack, for if you do, I will not be able to find what I need. I know what is in each stack, even though my husband tells me I couldn't possibly know what is there.
God has been speaking to me about getting organized. Going through things. Throwing away things I really don't need. (Mostly the stuff in the garage). My desk is a good beginning, but I have sooooooo far to go. Please pray that I will be able to get a handle on this soon.
