Lost and found….
It seems that I am always taking food items to places and people and I also seem to have trouble retrieving the platters and containers I use. Today I found several items which I had been looking for so I promptly put them in the car to take home.
Sometimes I wonder how I can misplace so many things. I have always believed the old adage that you should have a place for everything and put those things in that place. I actually try to do this, but I still end up with missing items.
People have suggested to me that it is due to the problem of not having enough storage for things and that is why I don’t have a place for them and maybe that is the issue. I really don’t know for certain. I do know that I seem to always have at least one thing that I am looking for.
And that really bugs me. I hate losing or misplacing things and even if I am not actively looking for them, it is in the back of my mind and when it comes to the forefront, then I start searching. I try to tell myself to just trust that I will find it and usually that is true, but there are a few things that I have never found and I have to admit they are just plain, old lost. And that is frustrating.
The idea of Sparking Joy by having things organized and not clutter is a great idea and one that I am still working on. Maybe as I continue to work toward this goal I will find those missing items and put them in their place. I hope that is true.
Father, thank you for found things. Help me to truly become better organized so I don’t waste precious time and energy looking for lost items. You know that this has been a big part of my life and I truly need to conquer it so I can use that time for your kingdom. I love you and I trust you to help me with this need. Amen.
