Cleaning House–Inside and Out

Day 77 in my expedition to  Walt Disney World and my dear pal Mickey

I’ve been picking away at projects today around the house.

  1. I straightened and reorganized the bookcase in my living room.
  2. I worked on reorganizing our DVDs.
  3. I changed our bedding.
  4. I put aside some clothes for Good Will.
  5. And I put some time in cleaning up my roll-top desk and purging old books and papers.

It feels so good to work on things that have been so neglected for, well, years really.  There is a feeling of accomplishment.  It is satisfying to be a good steward of all God’s blessings.

It made me think…I have not been a good steward of the body that God gave me, not for years…maybe not for all my years.  And now that I am  making healthier choices and moving more, maybe these stomach issues that I am having are my body’s way of purging toxins.  The empty calories that I forced into my body for years, are evacuating the premises now.

Change is often painful, visceral.  But when you know it’s the right thing to do, you just have to stay the course and trust that God is in control of the details.  So my plan for today is to think about these deep thoughts, and to pray for God’s help and guidance.  He is ever faithful, and I am ever grateful!

Meet you at the Kingdom!

BTW: Mike, my love-of-my-life husband, had his one year post-cancer checkup last Thursday.  There is no detectable cancer.  Thank you, Jesus!  We are over the moon!
