A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:”- Proverbs 31:10, 27-28
Literally, Oh my gosh. What was I going to say today? “can’t talk long blah blah gotta clean my house blah blah husband freaking out blah blah” God knows just what verse to send you each day when you have a routine. Like I’ve said before, I use BibleGateway’s Verse of the Day – I don’t pick these. Clearly God does.
Mrs. Margie’s funeral is today at 11. I took a whole day off from school. But since I’m not sick or having any kind of tests done, I can use my extra time wisely and get my house in order a little bit. I’ll be the first to tell you – and I’ll tell you quick. I don’t keep a good house. I never have. At school I’m super organized, but at home…. eeek.
And the fact that our house is still a little incomplete, I think may have something to do with it – but mostly its me. I am innately lazy. I do (like the verse says) “eat the bread of idleness” too much. I know this. And I intend on working on it. I will say as one excuse – (and thats all it is) we are busy folks. I work full time, and usually come home to something going on. No excuse. Everyone is busy, I have to get my act together.
And maybe I’m doing all this because I’m ‘nesting’ or whatever. Like literally, I wanted to just start cleaning when I got up – but I didn’t because I knew I needed to eat breakfast. (See? pregnant women don’t skip meals). I don’t have long, so I’m going to go now and start my crazy cleaning day.
I feel for women who are like me and aren’t great housekeepers, and I envy women who do keep a spic and span house. Tell me your secrets. I need to know them. Apparently no one passed them down to me. (and no, we can’t afford a house keeper so that’s out the question.. )
Pray for me in this matter – I normally talk to myself and you (thanks for reading) at the same time. Not today – this message is all for me. Ok.
Broom? Check. Dustpan? Check. Boxes? Check. Crazy inner drive to clean my house? Check. (I’m thanking pregnancy for that last one.)
