CLOSET SPACE
=============

Is your closet too crowded?

Perhaps the single greatest indicator of the overload that we
have in life are closets.

They are packed.

It doesn't matter how big our closets are.

Sooner or later we fill them up.

Why?

There is a closet rule of life that states:

1. Clothes expand to fill all available closet space
2. Sooner or later if you keep getting more clothes
you either have to:
A. Get more closet space
B. Get rid of some clothes

2B is what we hate to do.

But if we are TO BE what we are TO BE,
we need to learn the rule of 2B and get rid of some clothes.

Time is like closet space. We have a limited amount of it.

We keep putting more and more things in until our time is
cluttered.

The more cluttered it gets, the more things are out of place.

The time that we should be sleeping, we've got something else in
that space.

The time that we should be spending with family, we've got
something else in that space.

The time that we should have to ourselves to do whatever we do
to help our spirit, we've got something else in that space.

Even as our closet hinges strain to keep from bursting, we still
try to put more stuff in.

Take a look around your closet of time right now.

How much has accumulated
that you should have gotten rid of long ago.

They still may be good clothes, but your closet is just too full.

We have habits that we formed in our teenage years
that should have long ago been removed from our closets.

Some even have friends that should have long ago been removed,
for they no longer fit our style or destination.

As you change and grow, you should change what's in your closet.

Maybe we don't need more stuff in the closet.

Maybe we don't need a bigger closet.

Maybe we just need to clean out some stuff
and not with the purpose to make room for more stuff.

We may just need some space,

In a lot of areas,

For a lot of reasons.

There is a spiritual saying
that tells you to go into your closet to pray.

For many of us, there's simply no room.

Go look at your bedroom closet right now.
Chances are, it will reflect your closet of time.

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 14:27

Without a deep inner state of quietness, one becomes prey to tension, worry, and ill health. A song, a sunset, moonlight, the sea washing on a sandy shore, these administer a healing balm. But they lack power to penetrate the inner recesses of the soul. A profound depth therapy is required to attain healing quietness. An habitual repetition of this one text will, in time, permeate your personality with a complete sense of peace. When tense or restless, sit quietly and allow these words to pass unhindered through your thoughts. Conceive of them as spreading a healing balm throughout your mind.

Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
Ephesians 4:29 (NIV)

When I don’t like something, I want people to know about it, and I generally won’t stop complaining until everyone else is unhappy. But a few months ago this habit nearly caused a disaster.

I had been asked to speak at a high school by its PTA president. On the day of my talk, I arrived early and ate lunch at a restaurant a few blocks away. The food was good, but the restaurant had some of the ugliest decorations I had ever seen. Naturally I couldn’t wait to tell someone about it.

When I arrived at the school, the PTA president escorted me backstage and waited with me while the students filled the auditorium. I thought that as a resident of the area, she would appreciate my observations about the restaurant’s decor. But before I could bring up the subject, she asked if I was familiar with the restaurant.

“Yes, I ate there today,” I said, delighted to have found the perfect opportunity to unleash my tirade. “And actually—”

“My husband and I own it,” she said.

I was dumbfounded. “Oh . . . I, uh, well . . . that’s terrific,” I stammered.

I wondered how many times my careless complaining had offended others . . . and resolved to keep my criticism to myself.

And that PTA president? She asked me to come back again next year.

Lord, help me to choose my words carefully to encourage, not disparage.

SKIPPING CHURCH
================

Father Norton woke up Sunday morning and realizing it was an
exceptionally beautiful and sunny early spring day, decided he
just had to play golf.

So... he told the Associate Pastor that he was feeling sick and
persuaded him to say Mass for him that day.

As soon as the Associate Pastor left the room, Father Norton
headed out of town to a golf course about forty miles away.

This way he knew he wouldn't accidentally meet anyone he knew
from his parish. Setting up on the first tee, he was alone.
After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in
church!

At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while
looking down from the heavens and exclaimed, "You're not going
to let him get away with this, are you?"

The Lord sighed, and said, "No, I guess not."

Just then Father Norton hit the ball and it shot straight
towards the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell
into the hole.

IT WAS A 420 YARD HOLE IN ONE!

St. Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked,
"Why did you let him do that?"

The Lord smiled and replied, "Who's he going to tell?"

I Know
=======

MountainWings has a very wide diversity of readers.
I know.

All who read MountainWings are drawn by the view of life and
circumstances that allow you to rise above the everyday trials.
All don't have the same spiritual beliefs as I do.
I know.

Not only are we not all of the same religion, we are not of the
same race, nationality, or gender.
I know.

For those who don't believe in divine things, MountainWings
talks too much about such things.
I know.

For those who do believe, MountainWings talks too little about
such things.
I know.

Some don't understand why I don't talk much more about religion.
Some don't understand why I talk as much as I do about religion.
Even if I talked about it 100% or 0%, everyone wouldn't agree
with what I said.
I know.

I try to keep the balance right.
I try to help everyone who signs up,
but I can't help everyone.
I know.

Around the world, each day, thousands depend upon these few
words to make them feel better, to think better and ultimately
to do better. Some issues fail to do that with many readers.
I know.

With complex situations, life will always involve choices of the
best way to get done what God has destined you to do.
People won't always agree with how you do it.
They can't always see what you see.
They often don't feel what you feel.
They may not know the total purpose.

Even I don't know the total purpose.
I only know what I am supposed to do to the best of my ability
and resources.

That's all that you can do.
The best that you can with your abilities and resources.
You know?

Turn Your Security System ON!
==============================

A horrible thing happened to me today...

A thief broke into my house. It happened shortly after I awoke
this morning. I got up and began rushing about. I had a
thousand things on my list and was already running behind.

Quickly, I gulped down breakfast, took a shower and got ready
for work.

In my rush, I forgot to turn the security system on at my
house. It was just about a half an hour later that the thief
broke in. Of course, he didn't make a sound. Just kind of snuck
inside, not drawing any attention to himself. In fact, none of
the neighbors ever saw him.

But, I did.

You see, I WAS HOME when the thief broke in.

He naturally startled me, as I was unprepared for his visit.
He, of course, didn't announce that he was coming and I
certainly had not invited him over.

And yet, I found myself face to face with danger and I felt so
powerless. I also felt so very stupid, because this whole
incident could have been avoided if I had just taken the time
to turn the security system on.

You better believe I'll be turning it on tomorrow morning! I
thought I'd warn you about this guy, because he's still on the
loose. Chances are, he's in your area. Possibly even headed for
your house.

His name? His name is Satan. You see, this morning when I
jumped up in my haste to get started on my busy day, I skipped
my prayer time - opting to "pray later today." In other words,
I DIDN'T TURN ON THE SECURITY SYSTEM. My defense wasn't on, my
guard was dropped... and when the thief came into my home to
attack me,

I was unprepared to do battle.

He tempted me and I felt powerless. Like I said, I also felt so
very stupid, because I could have avoided the incident if I had
just taken the time to pray.

My friend, the thief has come to "steal, kill and destroy."
And, as a Child of God, you are on his "hit list." He'll
probably pop over to your house today. He may be lurking
outside your door right now, just waiting to catch you off
guard.

Take time to pray this morning. Ask God to bind Satan from your
very presence, to protect you and empower you to do battle. In
short... don't forget to turn your security system on.

Today's Power Thought:

Do Right.

One never does wrong by doing right. Put the matter in God's hands and simply do the right thing, leaving the outcome to God.
