Less Not More

I'm at home.  The children are at home.  We are at home.  I have been blogging and vlogging.  I have been keeping busy.  There is a lot to do.  There are moments when I find myself more busy than less.  I don't know about your feed but there are moments when I am noticing less not more activity.  Surely when I first found social media, I was on there more.  I was so excited finding people that I had not seen in ages.

I am thankful for the venues  Talk about feeling isolated!!!  Where would I have been if there were no social media?  Would I have had the courage to move out here?  I still feel very much connected to my people.  I love learning about what my friends are doing in other states and in other countries.  The world becomes a much smaller place.

Now in this time of turmoil?  Can I even say turmoil?  In this time of  uncertainty, I am forced to focus and reexamine this "less is more" mentality.  It seems a contradiction.  Doesn't Jesus tell is that less is more?  Of course I was going to bring God into this!!!  Jesus tells us that we should do the opposite of what we want.  If someone smacks you, you turn the other cheek... Uh...  Wow!!!  The first will be last and the last will be first.  He who seeks to gain his life will lose it and he who loses his life, for His Name's sake will gain it.

With these greater truths in mind, I will not hoard toilet paper.  I will not do needless shopping.  I will not overeat.  I will go through my wardrobe and do a purging.  Why?  Less is more.
