Consider This #18

Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. Colossians (3:1-2)

Here's something to think about this weekend:

"There was a time when I thought my house had to be perfectly clean all the time--perfectly decorated no matter if I could afford it. Thankfully, I got over that phase. The reality is that life has many phases and stages, and we will have a simpler and happier life if we accept graciously the particular phase or stage of life that we are in, and design our homes accordingly. And ultimately, isn't that the goal--a home that is comfortable, hospitable, and filled with people, food, and laughter, and a godly spirit of love? ~Sharon Hanby-Robie, from her book The Simple Home

Oh, how true that is. I struggle so often with the look of our house, outside and in... we live in a small house that really, it's falling apart. But when I think about it, I laugh because I get reminded that at least the roof isn't leaking and we are warm. There are people that can't say that.

I just wish my house could stay clean-lol. That is a very good message though. Yes I can spend the whole day making my house look perfect-but what time did I invest in my daughter or husband?
