Relief and Release


On Saturday I pulled into the county dump with one trash can filled with household garbage and one filled with outdoor refuse. I emptied one into the household dumpster bin and noticed, as I was pulling over to the bin for outdoor trash, a couple of folks shoving several pieces of furniture into it. It was full and overflowing and a county employee was beginning to close the dumpster door. For a moment I wondered where to put my trash but the man trying to close the door to the full one had already opened another bin.

As I emptied my trash into an barren dumpster I thought about how some folks dump their refuse onto us until we are full and overflowing.  Sooner or later we must close the door and say; “No more!” I also reflected on others who open their lives, allowing us to empty our burdens, rubbish and troubles onto them giving us a place of relief and release.

  1. Hmmm…I never saw it in this light before. Thanks for sharing. But for counsellors like me who have to keep listening to people, can we ever close the door?
