Treasures

I was reading from a daily reflection book that I own called Sacred Space. The excerpt reminded me to ..."not store up for (my)self treasures on earth; but store up for(my)self treasures in heaven." I have been consumed with the woes and financial stress of a new home. Honestly, I don't know if I am even really enjoying it without worrying about affording it. This might be too much information for all of you but I know that all of us have stress and worries that keep us from what is really important in life. Today I am reminded to see clearly, love others and follow my heart. "For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be." It is so easy to forget. tomorrow, I will need yet another reminder.

Hi - I recognize the feeling - its too easy to get caught up in "stuff" - things we have and want. Have to let go of all that and SEE the real treasures... family, friends, a job you love (I hope), summer, sleeping in, good books, icecream... you know what I mean.

Thank you for being so honest and raw with us katie. One thing I have always relied on is the simple phrase, I can only worry about the things that I can control. Pick those things that can be controlled and focus in on making good decisions, the rest will fall into place.
