No More Chaos!
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!
