Inner Simplicity

I have this cool little oriental ice bucket that sits on my shelf, I got it for a couple of bucks from an op shop. It contains my bits and bobs. . . it is bursting with ribbons, pens, coins, paper, scissors, rocks, broken gadgets, mostly stuff that should be in the bin.
Since sitting on my shelf it hasn’t ever held any ice.

I stuff my life with junk and jumble just like that.

How about taking a minute and reflecting on your own unnecessary bits and bobs?

Ask yourself….
“What is my inner clutter?”
“What things are distracting me from focusing on God?”
“What things get in the way of my simple wait for advent?”

Today God wants to say “Keep it simple in here!”
