The renovations in one part of our house are nearly finished. It does mean that my craft room is moving to a bigger room.
Today I have spent the day sorting through all my stuff. One thing about a crafter is the amount of stuff we hoard and I am no different.
I had so many boxes bursting at the seems with my junk.
I did throw a few bits away but most of it I kept because I know I will use it one day.
There is a saying – one mans junk is another mans treasure, and today I learnt this as I rescued my stuff from the bin. Matt didn’t understand why I wanted to keep small bits of material that had no value whatsoever.
The thing is I can transform that piece of material, add extra pieces to it and it can be made into something beautiful. That is why I didn’t throw it away.
I realised that this analogy is my journey this year. I was the one who thought all things about me were worthless and Matt thought it had some value. Over the year I have cut off the bad bits and added pieces to make me think now it does have some value.
Self worth is something everyone should have. It has taken me a long time to get mine. But it makes me think that no one should ever go round thinking that they are worthless because that is a lie.
Everyone has value in different ways and we are all valuable to God and he thinks we are beautiful.
