Holy Cards All Over the Place
One of my New Year's resolution was to declutter our home. But this time I am taking a different approach. I started in one area of our bedroom. I completely organize that area before moving on to the next area. I do one area a day so not to overwhelm myself like I have done in the past. It is my estimation that by this time next year, I will have have reached my goal of complete decluttering of our home.
As I declutter and organize I am finding lots of holy cards that I have tucked into books, the Family Bible, drawers, etc. I now have a little pouch full of holy cards I had forgotten I had saved. I know somewhere by my desk is another pouch full of Holy cards. I don't know where exactly where they are, but it's here somewhere...at least I hope so.
So now the Holy cards are getting out of hand. Whenever, I need just one, I have to go through an entire pile just to get the one I am looking for. This is not counting the Holy card collection Joey started when he was a little boy. Like for instance, this past Christmas I wanted to tuck a Holy card in the Christmas Cards we sent out. I had to make sure the Holy cards I chose where not ones that were given at someone's funeral. I was really careful about that.
Well it seems I am not the only one with this kind of problem.
The Pious Sodality of Church Ladies have a tip on organizing one's holy cards.
There tip is a good one. I don't know if it will work for me but I'm going to give it a try.
