What matters

(Originally published by Nattie on August 6, 2004)
A while back, Andrea did an entry on what does and does not matter. It has been brewing in my brain and I think I’m ready to say what matters to me (in no particular order)…

What really matters

  • I am saved by GRACE.
  • Wes
  • Jonathan
  • Anna
  • Good books
  • Good friends
  • Diet Coke
  • The health of my friends and family (and me)

What doesn’t really matter

  • The size of my jeans
  • The color of my hair
  • The cleanliness of my carpet
  • The dirty dishes in the sink

More things that matter

  • My church
  • My library
  • My freedom of speech
  • My free will
  • My Bible

  • My inherited family

More things that don’t really matter

  • The size of my house
  • The size of my car
  • The balance on my checking account
  • The amount of clothes in my closet
  • The labels on the clothes in my closet

A few more things that really matter

  • Hugs and kisses from kids fresh out of the bathtub
  • Storytime
