Your probably wondering what in the world I am talking about. I recently had a conversation with one of my dear online friends and sister in Christ Anita. We where talking about cleaning schedules and why its so hard for moms to stick to them... then when we don't, we feel guilty. Well I had tried all sorts of cleaning routines only to give it up later to try something else. My house is not perfect but I do provide a clean house for my family. I would love for it to look like something out of the Better Homes & Gardens magazine but its not going to on most days. Why? Is it because I am slob? No way. Is it because I do not care about my home environment my family is growing in? No way! Its because I am learning not to make my cleaning times submit to me at the exspence of my loved ones but for me to submit to the needs of my family first. Thats truly what a homemaker is called to do its not about that feather duster. I used to think a tip top clean house was one of the MOST important things. What if someone comes to the door unexpectedly? I cared more about what others may think because sometimes we judge people by what we see on the outside before looking in the heart right? I wanted to prove I was a good homemaker & mom by showing it with my home. But sometimes it crippled me from extra moments with my little ones I will not get back or crippled me from welcoming happily an unexpected guest all the whilst having a smile yet wishing they had called first so I could run around cleaning fast. You know the drill. But life is all about learning. I am learning to let go of so much more than this.We are imperfect beings in a fallen sinful world. Jesus embraces us in our imperfections. SO I will embrace my home in its imperfections at any given moment & the people in it... so that I can have more time to mold around my family's needs. I will clean but when I want to not when I feel I must out of fear! I will mold around my family cause they need me more. My teens are growing up and I want to cherish every moment I can. I will someday have all the time to clean perfectly as I want but for now I will mold like jello in a bundt pan around my families needs FIRST! I want to dance more with my teens in the rain of the moment!
