I don't know why, I called this a walk-about?
it was the first thing that poped in to my head,
I didn't really go anyway, but I did make alot of trips! I guess you could say I walked back into the past. I did learn alot , I learned that I come from a long line of pack rats! everyday for the last 2 weeks , I have been at my mom's, trying to clean out the 2 places ,that I called home when I was a child, and my teenage years!
the first house that we call the old house, I lived in until I was in the 5th grade, and then we got a mobilehome. Well anyway, sometime next week or so they will be history! and then they will put an new one u-p! I was feeling bad about this, but then it dawned on me this is not my home, my home is in heaven! What to do with 70 or so years of stuff? why do we keep things that don't mean anything , we keep things that we might need but we don't as I was going though mom and dad's stuff, it felt like I was going though the past, their past!it brought back alot of memories, some good and some not so good! I have gone though books, pictures, old papers, old jars, shoes, old newspapers! I have burned for 3 days, it is raining today, but as I was thowing stuff in the the fire, and the flames would lick at my arms it reminded me of hell and my sins!
and asking myself why would anyone want to live in the the lake of fire for ever?
When I got tired of burning I started hauling it off by the truck loads and it still not done!
as I was cleaning out, I found some of my old stuff, that i did when I was a teenager, I had a huge crush on the Statler Bros.! that is the picture i found, and when I thought of how old that picture was,I felt very old :(
Cleaning out mom's house, got me to thinking ( I have done more of that this week then I have in my life) I need to clean out my house, and not just my house, but My mind , my heart and soul,
take all the trash that is traped in there out and just keep what I really need and that is Jesus Christ. if I just keep my eyes on him , and fill up on his word there won't be any room for any trash!!!!
