Post It Notes....

Post It Notes are amazing and useful things! I love Post It Notes! I love bright colored ones the best! We get free stickies at work from different manufacturers. I use them all over my desk. I write myself notes about things that need to be done, things I need to remember, I use them to mark spots in documents or files or even books I'm reading. They are everywhere and I use them.

I also use them inside me. You know, we all have them. Those little emotional post it notes in our minds, hearts and spirits. Oh so handy for remembering who has made me mad or wronged me. Even better - the little reminders in my heart and spirit that constantly remind me how imperfect I am, remind me of all my fears and inadequacies! I can't tell you the countless times in my life I have walked through my soul and seen all the years of post it notes to remind me of bad decisions I've made, mean things I have done and how many times I've failed.

But I've had an epiphany of sorts. I don't think God uses post it notes. He doesn't keep track of all our garbage - we are the ones who do that. I think it's time to toss those old emotional post it notes in the trash and replace them (spoken like a post it note addict) with notes that remind me that I am fearfully and wonderfully made!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
