If My House is Messy…


( I am posting this from the archives..just because sometimes I need to remember this too 🙂

I composed this post this morning as I was frantically cleaning my house, and realizing sometimes a mess speaks volumes…


My house has been a wreck, yet it has been such a busy few weeks, some things just don’t seem that important anymore…


If My House is Messy…

If my bed is unmade…
It’s because of the little ones sleeping with me at night, comforting each other ,while daddy was away…
sleeping in, cuddling close…

If there’s toys scattered about…
it’s because children are playing, exploring, and just being kids…enjoying their toys…

If my furniture is dusty…
it’s because I just didn’t have time to dust…I was too busy building a fort, playing in the yard, and coloring with my 2 year old…

If my floors are sticky…
it’s because we enjoyed lots of treats together…had company in and out…letting my home be a place of comfort and hospitality…

If my stove is messy, and there’s still crumbs on the counter…
it’s because my kids were busy cooking up their own recipes in the kitchen, and we have an abundance of ingredients…
how grateful am I, not to be looking at an empty pantry…

If my house is messy…
yes, it’s because we LIVE in our home…
LOVE in our home….
and those are the things that matter most…

Sometimes we just need to change our perspective,
and not focus on the mess…
but how the mess was made…
