Holy Happens

Leslie’s Learnings: I thought a thought last night that I’ve never thought before.  As my precious Frank and I climbed into bed, I thought, “I don’t want to say goodnight to today.” It was the most wonderful day.  Full of memories for daydreaming moments. I close my eyes and smile picturing Tiffany, Heather and Danielle boldly standing on the altar and wooing our hearts as they share about their first week as minimalists.  The need for new hangers sparks the realization that the need is not for more hangers, but less clothes..  The cleaning out of a forgotten drawer reveals a thought-to-be-lost-forever diamond earring.  And money earned to buy more for self is given generously to offer hope for another.  Together, we celebrate getting rid of the old stuff. Then almost in the same breath, our breath is taken away as our Ms. Opal walks down the aisle to meet her future husband in a church decorated by her great granddaughter.  “Morning has Broken” fills the air, and together, with weepy eyes, we honor and  stand in awe of the old.  Heads bow reverently.  The words to an old poem are put to song by young Alejandro and a prayer is prayed for our precious couple. Holy happens. It’s true.  I didn’t want to say goodnight to yesterday.  But oh what delicious memories I have for today. For this, O Lord, I give you thanks! [Today is Day 7 in our minimalist journey.  If you want to join us, PLEASE give us a call and we would love to send you a thirty day prayerbook/journal, which you can begin on any day.  Blessings!]
