1. Message of the Day


Seven words that will kill the order in your home are these,

"I will take care of that soon."

When they are often used, these are the words of a 
procrastinator and procrastination is poisonous to living an orderly life. It has two traps that will snare us.
  • "Soon" gets you off the hook for an indefinite time -- maybe even what turns into a long time. In the meantime, the clutter remains and that is ugly and demoralizing.

  • The second snare is that we often think that as long as we have it on our mental list and have voiced a commitment, it is almost as good as done.

Don't fool yourself or let anybody else fool you with these 
seven deadly words. No words or thoughts substitute for the action of actually rolling up your sleeves and doing the job.

If you can't do it all today, write a list. Choose one from 
the list. Write a date and hour beside it. Then honor the commitment and check it off.

4. Family Reminder of the Day

In our family, we don't complain about our responsibilities.

In our family, we always flush the toilet immediately.

5. Quote of the Day

It never occurred to me until I had this house to take a 
vacation and stay home.

Gill Robinson, decorator

Editor's Note - We call these "Staycations" now!


7. From the Trenches - PARTY!

Today was a true test of how far I've come. I had a birthday 
party at my home that I scheduled at 9am for 1pm the same day. I was home alone with my 3 boys, 6, 4 and 1. Not only did we have the house clean and looking beautiful but I also fixed lunch (in the past it would of been fast food). The sense of peace that has come by facing my "messiness" has been such a blessing. I will Continue to pray for your ministry.

God Bless,
