messy:
is your laundry about as out of control as mine is?
gosh, i hope not –
for your sake.

 

i am such a good washer
(i.e. i am so very good at
throwing the dirty laundry
into the washing machine
and pressing start).
i’m actually pretty decent at
throwing it into the dryer, too!

but the hardest part for me is the folding
and, wait for it…
the dreaded business of putting it away.

 

i put it off for days and days
even though every single morning
while i am frantically digging through the laundry basket
which is overflowing with clean yet unfolded laundry,
looking for that
one
item
in
need
i promise myself to never get to this point again.
yet i do.
again and again and again.

blessing:
i am reminded in all of this that
His mercies are new every morning.
every.
single.
morning.
and with every breath.
every single breath.

 

real life is messy

that i don’t have it all together.
because real life is messy.

Because of the Lord’s great love
we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23
