i hear these words in my head and feel prompted to act:
“if you have two coats, give one away,” he [john the baptist] said. luke 3:11
"if you have two coats, one of them belongs to the poor." dorothy day
it has gotten really cold here, and while i wish i had acted sooner, i am picturing the person who will now have a warm coat! that is one more person who will not be as cold at the bus stop or on the walk to school with her child. the coat was not accomplishing that sitting in my closet. i'm not at all advocating for guilt. just again noting how faith and love can work seamlessly into a simple closet, a decluttered home, a simple, fearless life.
