After reading this post about the 40 Days, 40 Bags project, I knew I had to do it. While I've never fully participated in Lent, with the intention of ridding my life of something that takes away my focus on God, I figured it's never too late to start. For the 40 days of Lent (which I started a few days late) I am going through a different part of my house, cleaning it out and getting rid of anything I don't need. My goal is to clean my life and house of all the extra stuff, filling up bags and leaving more room for God. I've already finished my bedroom, and it feels great.
Ohh, I cannot wait until day 40. A fresh start, a clean house, and a happy heart is what I'm looking forward to.
