That is the number of items I purged from my house this week.  
This weeks fast was on possessions.  We were to pick a way to get rid of things in our house.  My plan was to give away 7 things in each room of our house.  I was going to pick a room a day and clean stuff out.  I didn't make it to every room of our house!  I wasn't expecting to clean much out other than in my closet.  I have hosted 2 garage sales in the last 6 months for our friends that are adopting.  I hadn't touched my closet.  I expected  finding 7 items in the rest of the house would be hard.  Boy was I wrong!  I was amazed at how much stuff we had.   I allowed the kids to pick 7 things from their rooms.  Eliana picked just 7 and you would have thought I was physically injuring her from the way she reacted.  For as upset as she was the boys were the complete opposite.   They picked out over 30 things.  Jeremiah picked out one of the nerf guns.  I asked him if he was sure.  His response amazed me.  "Mom, I have more nerf guns.  Some little boy would love to have this."  Just when that child has about sent me to the loony bin - his heart amazes me! 
So I've still got rooms to go through.  I'm going to be much more intentional about what I keep.   Trevor still hasn't cleaned out any of his stuff!  I'm hoping we can clear off an entire book case!
