"Hey! That's not's stuff!" said hubby as I headed toward the "throw-away pile" with an armful of..."stuff"?

I turned and cocked an eyebrow at him
bracing my legs under the weight of the "stuff" in my arms.
We were in the process of organizing "the building" that sits at the edge of the pine trees that surround our yard.....the building was full of "stuff".
And we had more "stuff" we needed to move from an upstairs room in our house that had become a "graveyard" for everything our grown children either didn't have room for or didn't want.
But the stuff I thought was junk and the stuff my husband thought was junk weren't the same "stuff"...hmmmm.....and we kept running across "stuff" we had forgotten we had that we just couldn't relegate to the "junk" pile.....

It's very true what they say..."One man's trash is another man's treasure."
I am reminded of a Bible verse we learned as children:
"For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."
-Matthew 6:21
Lesson: Be wise about what you treasure....Is it really good "stuff"...or just plain "junk"?
The way we live our lives says a lot about what we treasure.

  1. I chuckle when I think of the two of you trying to figure out what's stuff & what's junk. Sometimes there's only a fine line between the two :)
