My closet is such a disaster these days. I went from pregnant to not pregnant just as the weather went from warm to cold and my closet got stuck somewhere in the middle. A mix of old, new, maternity, summer, winter…disaster. I’m starting my New Year with a new ‘do (I’m now a sassy, short-haired brunette!) and would like to work in some new outfits that are just as sassy. Problem is there is no room in my closet.
How’s your marital closet looking these days? Full of some stuff that has to go? Stuck somewhere between then and now? There hangs that harsh word from the fight last week? Up on the shelf, a big pile of sarcasm and resentment? And what is that way down in the back corner? A big hurt or disappointment that you’ve let sit in your closet way too long? You’ve wanted to get rid of it, but you just can’t seem to let it go.
Hear me friends. You can’t usher in the ‘new’ when you are still hanging on to the ‘old’.
I f your relationship is in need of a new wardrobe, then it is time to dig through that closet. Purge all those habits. Stop hoarding all those hurts. Get rid of those expecations that have never quite fit right. Grab a big bag, stuff them all in and take a drive over to the true ‘good will’, where ‘salvation’ has an ‘army’ and dump them in the dumpster labeled ‘FORGIVENESS’.
All items are accepted.
Return home to a marriage closet that is ready to be filled some new styles, like the apparel of appreciation coming next Tuesday!
