Have you guys heard this song? I listened to it for the first time yesterday. Its a Country music song by Kristian Bush of Sugarland. It's his solo single called Trailer Hitch. You know my genre is Christian Praise and I'm not sure if he's a Christian but this song is about giving and not holding onto the things of this world.
The lyrics really struck me and I thought some of you may appreciate it as well. I find it very fitting during this process of decluttering my life. I wrote and posted on my blog last week Why I Give My Stuff Away. I say I've donated 75% of our possessions over the last couple years and he says 50%, I’m pretty sure he’s in denial. LOL
It’s been a big project but I committed 15 minutes a couple times per week to deowning. I’ve purged anywhere from 100-1,500 items each month. I've participated in the 40 Bags in 40 Day and the minimalist game. Our home was clean, organized, and not messy from the start but we have found that we still had Too Much Stuff. It’s easy to do after living in a 2,800 sq.ft home for 12 yrs. with a basement, 3 car barn, shed, with 4 homeschooling kids. I’m blessed beyond measure. Glory be to God!
