Sunday afternoon is a good day for a nap! I don't know who was the most content in the photograph. DD loves to sleep, and Mamie the Wonder Dachshund loves to be warm. As I type this, DD is still asleep. She came home after Church and went right to sleep on the couch. We didn't even wake her up for lunch. I'll have to call her in a minute or two as we get ready for the evening services. When she was a baby, she slept all the time. She would take a nap right before bedtime, then sleep all night long! Mamie loves to sleep too. And can she snore! Look at those nose--how could she help it?

We have a family friend who delights in finding homes for books where they will be cherished.In fact, she thinks of herself as a bit of a "matchmaker." She has blessed us over the years with these treasures, always finding the perfect book. This past week, she gave Hubby a lovely early-20th Century collection of G. Campbell Morgan's works. He is so happy! I hear the voices of these great men of God in my husband's sermons.

Through some difficulties faced by our family recently, I have felt the Lord tugging at my heart, telling me to draw closer to Him. Last weekend, my thoughts turned to the best way to do this in the form a morning quiet time. I had maintained this for many years, but I allowed those bad habits to take over again (sleeping for those 30 more minutes, and the thought, "oh, I will do that tonight"). Anyway, as He said, "draw nigh to Me" He also planted that little purple seed in my mind, "why not try FlyLady again?" I really do believe this came from the Lord.
I began Sunday night with the sink cleaning, and Monday morning with the easy and productive "Kelly's Mission." My house is not perfect, but it is SOOOOOOOOOO much better. I am not in the midst of CHAOS. In fact, we had a guest over for some sewing fun on Friday afternoon, and things were pretty much ready for her visit without a frantic attempt to make things presentable.
The Lord knows the desires of our heart. I want our house to be a home that is not "show room ready" but inviting and comfortable for guests and the family living here! So, thank you, Lord. You are so good to provide this encouragement for me and to draw me closer to Yourself.
Thanks too, to FlyLady. I am really FLY -ing this morning!
