I have made an observation in my life. Anyone who knows me, knows that I struggle in the area of organization and housekeeping. It just doesn’t come natural to me. Recently, things have been pretty bad. My house has just been cluttered and truthfully, it drives me nuts. But, I just don’t know where to begin sometimes.

So, I’ve been talking to my friends about it and asking for advice. My Pastor’s wife told me that she basically cleans in every spare moment she has. Part of me cringed inside. I don’t want to spend every spare moment cleaning! I decided to give it a shot though and slowly, I am climbing out from under the mess. My husband is starting to notice the difference and my burden is starting to feel lighter.

Here’s the biggest thing that I notice. Yes, I am tired when I sit down to rest, but I am also much more relaxed. When the house is in calamity, I never truly relax. I always feel guilty and I’m always noticing “fires” that need to be put out. I’m feeling less and less like that everyday. My stress level is decreasing and I feel more able to enjoy the blessings in my life.

I don’t ever want to get buried under a mess again. Please, Lord, help me to stay on top of things.
