Life has been extraordinarily busy lately. And whether in answer to that or in rebellion of being busy with so many things outside our home, I have rearranged my daughter’s room last weekend and my son’s room today. They both are more age-appropriate and less cluttered. This needed to happen. In addition, I cleaned out the art corner. Wow, that was a job! Also, my daughter’s hair and mine are now shoulder-length bobs. That also needed to happen. And now my home feels cleaner, less cluttered, and I am so content the house is better, decluttered. It is an enormous blessing from God. And I get now why some people of older wisdom said that “cleanliness is next to Godliness”. You feel calmer and can accept God’s peace easier and better somehow. 😄❤
Sometimes I wonder at the present
I wonder how on earth I got here
So many twists and turns on the path
That led me to You.
You held my hand when I let you do it
You walked with me each bad decision through
You kept pace with my neck breaking speed
And kept loving me.
So now as I sit with my gray bonnet
Wondering how it was so much has passed
Thinking of all the times I turned down
The very wrong road.
And times like this moment of quiet reflection
Alone in my bedroom, how can this all be?
And I look with deep quiet and see Your same hand
Is held out to me.
I take it.
I am held.
I am content.❤
