That was it. I am so intent on a place for everything and everything in it’s place that I often forget what my life should be centered around. I do my best to have a quiet time every morning but sometimes, I’m just going through the motions. I forget what I read as soon as I close my Bible. I walk away from my quiet spot and see the dishes in the sink, the boxes that haven’t been unpacked –even though we moved in two years ago, the disheveled stacks of sheets and towels in the linen closet,……….you get the idea. Our God is a God of order. He created the heavens and the earth and everything in them in order. If He cares so much about order, then I think I should to. So I have have a list. A long one of drawers and cabinets and closets that need to be organized. I have a goal to tackle a few a week. Even if I just get one shelf done a day, it’s progress. Right? If you need encouragement in organizing or just encouragement in general, I recommend reading A Holy Experience. Encouragement can also be found over at Ben and Me as I join Marcy and others as we continue to “Blog through the Alphabet”.
When my life is organized around Jesus, who is Beautiful, my messy life is organized beautifully.
Joy to You!
