Last week was a crazy week preparing for the Women’s Retreat for San Diego First Church of the Nazarene. It was an amazing weekend where God showed Himself to be so big, so sovereign and so good. I hope to write more about it this week.
But When I left the house on Friday, I left it a mess and came home to a bigger mess. This is fine by me because I’m thankful my family releases me freely to do things like speaking at retreats, but the day after needs to be what I call the day I pull it together.
Today, I will clean, do laundry (and Lord willing, fold it and put it away), balance the budget, pay some bills and menu plan for the week. There are so many other things I need to get done as well, but I’ve realized if I neglect these areas of my home for too long, then everyone feels frazzled. Every one’s responsibilities (not just my own) seem more reasonable and less over whelming when there is order in our home.
Does it mean it’s perfect? Absolutely not… but it makes us all feel better and focused.
What is it that you need to do to help your life flow better?
