    Thank you for your post on my last scripture post. This one goes along with some things I was talking about with Rainbow in one of her posts.

    For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6:10

    If you didn't read that post, I mentioned how I had lived with money. I really believe that it ruined that marriage. Temporal "things" in life, to me, aren't nearly as precious as the spirtual.
    Not to say that I don't know people who have money and are very, very, good and loving people. Money doesn't effect all the same way. I'm just thankful for what I have now. Everything I need...plus!
    Love to you, Cynthia

    money and things are not what make us truly happy and content. i accumulated so many things that i became sort of a hoarder, and it was awful. it is better now thank goodness.

    the short version--

    well, I knew that all the stuff, clutter, objects were stressful and draining on me. i hated it. i decided i had to change. but i was very sick w cfs. so i got my mom and my brother to help me go thru the clutter and decide how to get rid of it-- trash, or donate, or sell, or keep. well it took a year or so, but now the house is much better. we had to do it bit by bit.

    also i bought and read a few books about clutter problems. they were helpful. actually i bet there are websites that have the info for free. the clutter problem was so bad i actually considered going into therapy with a hoarding specialist!! im glad its better now! hope this helps!
