3328. no early labor for my sister
3329. scattered yellow tiny flowers

the messy:
my heart

 

do you want to know what’s messier than my kitchen floors?
my insides.

 

i desire a cleaned up,
everything in order kind of house.
do you, too?

 

that’s just not the season of life that i am in right now.
sometimes my house gets both cleaned up and organized
but that’s usually only when the children are all sleeping.
and what’s the point of that?

 

 

but i also want a cleaned up and organized life.
and i desire to have that in my heart also.

 

the beautiful:
Jesus

 

only He can make us new.
only He can transform us.
that power is only held by Jesus.

 

my house is a real mess.
my life is a real mess.
my heart is a real mess.
but you know what?
it can never be too messy for Jesus.
never.
because nothing is too messy for Him.

I will give you a new heart
and put a new spirit in you;
I will remove from you your
heart of stone
and give you a heart of flesh.
Ezekiel 36:26

 

3001. feeling refreshed and inspired
3002. being able to wear a scarf in this “cold” weather
3003. a few extra minutes
3004. it’s turquoise and it spins
3005. “bass!” yelled by L at music class

 

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.

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
