The best things aren’t things

As I sat down at my computer yesterday to write, I had a note from the week before with a current list of projects we have going on at our house that I wanted to share. But this week, it just doesn’t seem to be significant at all in wake of the Oklahoma tragedy.

I love to decorate and remodel, it’s a serious passion of mine, and so is helping other people make their homes more of an enjoyable, simple haven. I try not to put too much emphasis on things, and I don’t hang on to clutter, but just like the next person, I do get attached to my stuff. The total devastation and the leveled homes on the news illustrate how quickly all of the “things” we work for can be gone…and we all know that the best things in life aren’t really things.

From donating blood to air miles to money, here’s a great article with many options on how to help the victims of the tornado.

A verse that has been coming to mind this week and serves as a great reminder for me is from Matthew 6: 19-21.

“Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them & rust destroys them, & where thieves break in & steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths & rust cannot destroy, & thieves do not break in & steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.”
