If you're feeling overwhelmed with the clutter of life and don't know where to even begin to dig out, have no fear.
I will give you the perfect place to start. Read on:
An older gentleman friend passed away a couple of years ago, and it was a true “home going” for a wonderful man.
Asa Holleman had come to know Jesus in his thirties and gave his whole adult life to serving him through his business and vocational life. He was 82 when he died, and he left behind a wonderful family and the great love of his life, Billie, his wife of 62 years. He sure knew how to love that sweet lady, and those two gave all of us something to talk about. They were still flirting with one another until the end. I believe he was caught pinching her bum in the church kitchen when he thought no one was looking. How great is that?
Besides being known for how he loved his wife, Asa will always be remembered for being a snappy dresser.
I think I’ll always picture him in his bright green sport jacket (similar to the one above) and cream colored pants. Not everyone can get away with an outfit like that, but he sure could. It went well with the twinkle in his eyes and the smile he always sported. He pulled it off with warmth and charm.
I’ve always kind of wanted to be a snappy dresser myself, but the truth is, the closest I’ll ever come to it is by HAVING a snappy dresser.
How is THAT for a segueway?
Now, I love this dresser from Pottery Barn:
Mine (cough) is not nearly as stylish. It’s is currently under a layer of dust, littered with receipts and loose change, and in desperate need of an overhaul.
Today it’s more like a gauche dresser.
Today’s Small Thing is to clear off your bedroom dresser in a snap!
I know mine will only take a few minutes to look dapper again. A light dusting, a quick removal of the miscellany and a deft straightening of the decor will have my dresser back in style.
You see, there is power in having one area or piece of furniture that is clear of clutter.
Stand back and admire your work. Congratulate yourself.
Feel the joy of doing ONE positive thing today.
