Between helping with (and having kids involved in) children’s choir, teaching a preschool class on Wednesday nights, teaching piano lessons 3 out of 5 evenings, and all the holiday buzz in general, my December plate is pretty full!
I promise I didn’t originally plan for this post to come out the week after Thanksgiving…but it is fitting, isn’t it? 😉
Raise your hand if you love to clean your bathroom!
No one? Yeah, me neither. But alas, it must be done, right?
Stuff can so easily accumulate and clutter.
But this post isn’t about capsule wardrobes, donating to charity or living simply (all good things, though). It’s about continuously choosing joy while decluttering our minds and homes – with God’s love, through God’s love, for the love of our families.
Doing the dishes is by far my least favorite chore. Even after making a delicious, enjoyable and beautiful meal for my family, the visual stress of a pile of dirty dishes in the sink can send me completely over the edge. And worse, sometimes doing the dishes can bring out the great, dreaded “R” word — resentment.
If there were ever to be a continuous chore, it would be laundry, right? Add the clothing of any tiny humans into the mix, and your small hills of T-shirts and jeans quickly turn into mountains.
God whispered something so small … and so big… into my heart earlier this week.
That I need more of Him.
Physical strength is something that…well, doesn’t come easy to me! I don’t have a lot muscles, or a lot of extra time work building them! On better days though, I can feel the energy flowing – thanks caffeine – and feel the sudden need to DO ALL THE THINGS.
