Psalm 27:4 "One thing have I desired; that will I seek after. That I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life."

Reflecting Already

I had no business getting up at 3:45am today.  I just couldn’t sleep.  I’ve spent the last 3 hours, grading schoolwork, making pancake batter, righting the checkbook and checking the weather.  I’m going to blame the sleep loss on some really good Papa John’s pizza last night.  I ate too much of it and boy, does my stomach hurt!  But it did taste good going down.

While the girls birthday partied yesterday, Joel dropped me at JoAnn’s & took Kurt to Gander Mountain.  "We looked at hunting stuff, Mommy!" 

I wandered around JoAnn’s "looking" and spent $50!  I just had to buy some magazines, to inspire myself.  I love going through organizing magazines to get ideas.  There’s something about the end of December and January that makes me long for clean and organized.  Which got me reflecting on the chaos of Christmas.   Isn’t it nice in January to just put everything away?  We’re so excited to get it out and yet it’s a relief to pack the boxes and get back to normal.  But as January fades into February and March and so on, the chaos starts to snowball all over again.  By July & August we’re left wondering where the summer went and then it’s fall and school and before we know it the holidays are here again. 

As I look forward to organizing & cleaning my house for the new year ahead, I need to schedule some time to clean & organize my soul.  There’s plenty of clutter in the corners and cobwebs I haven’t dealt with.  I’m glad God’s mercies are new every morning so that I don’t have to wait until the New Year to start clearing away the chaos from my heart.  There’s no time like the present to pick up my coffee, pick up The Word and start cleaning.  Blessings, friends, from the homestead pond.
