FATHER GIVE ME STRENGTH TODAY
HAVE YOU HAD THOSE DAYS WHEN NOTHING IS GOING RIGHT? AND YOUR HOUSE LOOKS LIKE LIKE A TORNADO PASSED THROUGH? I have to come clean and be honest with my readers today- My house looks awful. How did it get this way? I have to leave it this way, just for a moment. I have to head to my prayer group. I WILL TAKE CARE OF IT LATER...Boy was that a mistake. Lesson learned here, NEVER PUT OFF SOMETHING THAT COULD GET DRASTICALLY WORSE! (SMILE)
|CAN YOU COME BACK NEXT WEEK?|
My navy husband is deployed and I have two of my children still living at home. I have a 14 year old and a 16 year old. We had so many activities this week and left for the weekend. We just got back in. OH NO! Stuff is EVERYWHERE! I just stopped for a minute looked around and everything was out of place. I know that I SHOULD NOT of been blogging this morning BUT trust me when I say, It was WAY more fun then cleaning this messy house. (Smile) Truthfully, I was so much in a rush when I left the house that I really didn't care if it was clean or not. Has that happened to you?
Oh my goodness! I have got to give myself a break sometime and realize this house CAN NOT STAY PERFECTLY CLEAN 24 hours a day no matter what age my children are (Smile) OK I feel better now. Let me tell you, I receive so many letters and emails from women who feel strongly that if you are a "Stay at home wife/mom", That you have nothing going on. That you simply lay around all day long (Smile) ARE YOU STILL LAUGHING? I know I was when I was reading those letters. I work more IN my house and for HIS Kingdom than I did when I had a Full-time job at the hospital.
|HOPE THAT MADE YOU LAUGH|
No amount of prayer can get those dishes done or the rug vacuumed. It takes prioritizing and a real simple approach to cleanliness. I know we laughed at the beginning of this blog post but seriously, We as wives MUST arrange our time in a way to take care of our kids, husbands and ourselves. Slow down a little bit and start to ORGANIZE Things so that you wont come home to a house that looks like a "Tornado" came through. It CAN BE ACHIEVED through prayer and meditation. We as mothers/wives CAN keep a clean household, take care of our families AND still have quiet time for the Lord. That makes me smile knowing that I can do this. And so can you.
|YOU CAN DO THIS|
