SPRING HOUSE CLEANING - THROW IT OUT
Last Week I threw out Worrying, it was getting old and in the way. It kept me from being me; I couldn't do things my way.
I threw out those Inhibitions; they were just crowding me out. Made room
for my New Growth, got rid of my old dreams and doubts.
I threw out a book on MY PAST (didn't have time to read it anyway).
Replaced it with New Goals, started reading it today.
I threw out childhood toys (remember how I treasured them so?) Got me a NEW PHILOSOPHY too, threw out the one from long ago.
Bought in some new books too, called I CAN, I WILL, and I MUST. Threw
out I might, I think and I ought. WOW, You should've seen the dust.
I ran across an OLD FRIEND, haven't seen him in a while. I believe his
name is GOD, Yes, I really like his style.
He helped me to do some cleaning and added some thing's himself. Like
PRAYER, HOPE and FAITH, Yes I placed them right on the shelf.
I picked up this special thing and placed it at the front door. I FOUND
IT - its called PEACE. Nothing gets me down anymore.
Yes, I've got my house looking nice. Looks good around the place. For
things like Worry and Trouble there just isn't any place.
Its good to do a little house cleaning, get rid of the old things on the shelf.
It sure makes things brighter; maybe you should TRY IT YOURSELF.
