A Place to Worship

A Place to Worship: Creating a special place in your home for worship. @ AVirtuousWoman.org #ATimeToClean

How was your day?  Mine was incredibly busy. I spent the morning out with my husband shopping for food to put in the food baskets we'll be giving away through our Appalachian Community Center. I took the kids out this weekend collecting donations of canned food for the baskets. And this evening we spent a few hours at the church putting the baskets together. Each family will get three bags of groceries! I'm exhausted.  I've also been very busy clearing clutter and getting … [Read more...]

I have to apologize for missing Friday. I was behind on my writing all week last week. When Friday came, I had planned to spend the afternoon writing, but then our old horse, Bandit came down with a case of colic and we ended up spending hours in the freezing cold walking him until around 10:30 pm that evening.

  A Time to Clean: Day 13 You can read the rest of the posts in this series here. "I wish I'd had more had more stuff, more things, and more money," said no one ever as they breathed their last breath. No, most people thinking back on their life will have wished they'd spent more moments living life to the fullest and loving their family more. So much time is spent buying, organizing, cleaning, moving, carrying stuff. Things. Material possessions that have no eternal value. What do … [Read more...]

About Self-Discipline

Self-disciple means doing what you know needs to be done even when you don't feel like it. {A Time to Clean: 30 Day Challenge} @ AVirtuousWoman.org

A Time to Clean: Day 12 You can read the rest of the posts in this series here. It's easy when you feel overwhelmed to just ignore the problem - indefinitely. You walk into a room and the piles of clutter just seem too great. Or you open that closet door and you shudder at the thought of cleaning out the junk - even though you can barely push the door shut.
