Moving on, or at least contemplating it…

I’m working on cleaning out Ayealyn’s room (or what will be Ayealyn’s room) and I came across a box of old letters and cards. I have decided that I’m going to throw almost the whole box out, I think.

There is a part of me that really hates to get rid of these special mementos, but at the same time, this is at least the third time that I have come across them, wondered what to do with them and then just ended up sticking them in a different place. I don’t want to separate myself from the relationships that the letters represent, but as I look at the names on the return addresses, I realize that I am actually friends with several of these people on Facebook, but I never really talk to them.

So, as I dramatize the simple act of clearing out what has become clutter, I realize that I need to clear out some emotional clutter as well. I need to live in today. Who in my life could I currently correspond with and possibly encourage? What relationships could I be establishing that will actually live on in the future? These are questions I need to contemplate.

So, bye bye letters. I still have good memories of your senders and I pray a blessing on them.


About Melanie

My Being Purpose Statement: As a part of Christ's Bride and as one of His precious treasures whom He redeemed with His precious blood, I purpose in my heart to love and adore Him with all of my heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22:37). I want to be beautiful in the sight of my Saviour, Jesus Christ. I will therefore pursue holiness (1 Peter 1:16) that I might worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness (1 Chronicles 16:29, Psalms 96:9) and go and proclaim His love, sacrifice and salvation to others who have not heard that I may have the beautiful feet of them that bring glad tidings of good things (Isaiah 52:7, Romans 10:15). My Life Purpose Statement: I desire to serve my Redeemer and Savior Jesus Christ throughout my entire life by ministering to girls and women. I pray that I will be able to bring many girls and women to the Cross of Christ that they may find salvation from a loving and gracious Savior. It is my heart’s desire to encourage girls and women who know the Savior to deepen their relationship with Him and to fall more and more in love with Him. I also want to serve women by assisting them in their everyday lives whether I am rolling up my sleeves to work alongside them or am connecting them with people, ministries, and or resources that will be helpful and beneficial to them. By God’s grace and power, through His Spirit, and for His glory will I endeavor to fulfill this purpose
