Keeping House with the Lord {January 1, 2010}

Today is the first day of the year 2010.  It has been a fairly good day overall.  I was able to sleep in thanks to my hunny.  I ate dinner with family, right down to the collards and black-eyed peas.  I thank Ms. Virginia for her wonderful meal.

I have also started on my resolutions. 
  • I have posted daily photo for my 365 days in Photos project. 
  • I have re-organized my photos on the laptop from last year.
  • I have read my inspirational article for the day.
My inspirational article is from the Heart of the Matter online.   Making Your Home a Haven was written by Jennifer Sikora, a loving, homeschooling mother of two.  This article talks about housekeeping with the Lord's help, by showing God's love in each of your rooms, praying over the rooms and allowing the Lord to direct and live in them, as well as in you.

Housekeeping is a task I desperately dread.  I am organizationally challenged.  I am a procrastinator (there I admit it!).  I would rather do anything, except clean and organize my house.  I understand this is an inherited trait in my family but it is a trait that I am attempting to overcome.

Making Your Home a Haven has helped me to see that I should not be cleaning house for myself, or for my family but for the Lord.  I should be allowing him to beautify my home and my life.  These are the things I should be choosing to do for myself and my family to better their lives and home.  God should shine throughout my life, not just in me but also in my home.

It is my goal, that by the end of 2010, my home will reflect my love for God and his immense LOVE for me and my family.  I look forward to completing this goal and enjoying my time doing it.

1st Corinthians 10:31–Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.


  1. Dana, this post has been an encouragement to me! I need to adjust my views on housekeeping. Thanks for the reminder. Blessings to you and yours.

  2. Dana, I agree with Marsha - this post is such an encouragement to me.

    We all need to adjust our views of housekeeping. I'm going to go check out the article.

    God bless you, my friend.
