Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

One way to clean your floors

Our laundry room has been in a state of disarray for way to long. We try to organize then end up using the space as a dumping ground for things that are headed to the garage, to the garbage, to the donation places etc. It's a transient world - kind of like an airport terminal with some passengers who's flights have been delayed way too long.

Well, God decided it was time to clean up. We'd cleaned the bedroom areas last night which resulted in mounds - no mountains - of clothes being sorted in the laundry room. One stray shirt, unbeknownst to us, managed to slip through baggage check-in and landed in the laundry tub / utility sink. So of course Niagara Falls resulted all over the floor (us happily munching on "bedtime bed snack" right upstairs from one of the seven wonders of the world. It flowed and flowed right through all those other unwanted passengers.

The mess and ruined items are now awaiting the Sunday garbage pickup, the room is organized, and the floor is oh so clean!! What a blessing in disguise - sometimes I just need that extra kick in the butt to get a job done - even though I may not be super grateful for it at the onset. Thank you Lord for a clean laundry room, Please help us to keep it that way, Amen.

Patiently awaiting my next calling ...
