"…And she smiles at the future." ~Proverbs 31:25

Precious clutter

I came across another one today. It looked like this:

I frequently find them around the house…these little, rolled up pieces of paper that appear—at first glance—to be misplaced trash. But I have learned not to throw them away.

You see, they belong to my daughter, Addy.

And they are important to her. These little tubes of paper are her personal prayer lists.

She makes them all the time.

She does it on her own.

And while I often get on to her for leaving her “stuff” (shoes, books, etc.) around the house, it’s hard to complain when I find one of these:

I love that Addy cares about people.

I love that she takes her prayer life seriously enough to write down what’s too important to risk forgetting.

And I love the surprise of finding out that what I thought was trash, isn’t trash at all.

Thanks for stopping by!
