I have spent the day cleaning house, and randomly tweeting complaints about it!! Though, the complaints are humorous in nature, let me the the first to say, seriously, that I'm thankful for the need to clean.
-- The fact that I need to vacuum is because my floors are hard wood and carpet, not dirt.
-- The fact that I have done load after load of laundry is because we have choices in attire and my kids don't have to wear the same clothes they wore yesterday, because that's all they have.
-- The fact that I have to cook dinner says that I have food to eat, for the 3rd meal today, and that it's prepared indoors, in an enclosed appliance, to be eaten on clean plates in an air-conditioned dining room.
After what I have seen the last few weeks, I joke about my life, but I have wept about others. God has blessed me beyond measure and I have renewed my determination to daily find ways to live Isaiah 58:9.
