I like doors...
I have hauled five of them with me in my last three moves...
currently they create a wall in my apartment.
They are a reminder that God is with me.

What is it about doors that remind me of God is that God is big enough
to open them and big enough to close them...I trust Him to do that in my life.

I trust Him to know what doors to open specifically for me...

and I trust Him to close the doors that He chooses...which isn't always fun...but I trust Him.

He's with me and I trust Him...He's at work, inspite of it not looking like it! He's looking at me and His hand is open
and He's opening doors for me that I don't expect.

Red, red, red, red...I like it a lot!'s vibrant, it's exciting, bull's like it, it's the color of passion and love!
It's emotionally intense and literally makes hearts beat faster, and raises blood pressure.

In interior decorating it's usually used as an accent color because it draws attention
and is why stop signs and traffic lights are red. It's the color of fire, blood and danger.
Yes, I really, truly like red! You could even say I love it!!

But, my favorite color combination is red and pink...
Pink is the color of romance, innocence and tranquility :)
It makes me feel happy and I like it!

Stuff, I've got a lot of stuff,
but not nearly as much stuff as I used to have.
6 years ago I moved from northern Michigan
to the Grand Rapids area and I had to downsize.
I sold a home and moved into a town home, then came
phase two of the downsizing I moved from the town home
to an apartment in downtown Grand Rapids.
I let go of a lot of stuff and it felt good, so good!
I gave away and sold some of my favorite things.
Truthfully it was hard to let go of some of my stuff
but what I realized is that my stuff isn't me
and I'm not a better person because of
the stuff I have, I'm me with or without stuff.
It was actually freeing to let go and leave
stuff behind and not to drag it forward!

These are some random things I have in a jar; old marbles,
crystal chandelier pieces, jewelry and rocks.
I like it, I don't know why I just do. Stuff!
