Here’s week #3′s Challenge: List a few of the spots in your home that make you visually stressed. Now go buy something for that spot – like a basket to put it all in! Work on cleaning up clutter. Throw things away.
While you’re at it – clean up some clutter in your spiritual life. What gets in the way of your peace spiritually?
Well, as I mentioned, I've already been working on the clutter in my home. If you are a regular reader here, you know that I've mentioned tackling the clutter and having a desire to live in a home that is comfortable, organized, welcoming, and clean. My biggest clutter zone is my garage and that's just from moving many times in short periods and then storage for all of our church/school/ministries and family of 6. However, I would like to minimize it all, not just for ease, but to be less of an eye sore when I see it.
Anyway, I looked around at my house and I must say that I've got things pretty much the way I like it to be. We have church Bible study and prayer at my house every Wednesday now and I've finally got a handle on keeping the house presentable. However, I do have some weak spots and these will be my challenge for this week.
Here's spot number one:
Here's spot number two:
There you go. Two spots that really need my attention. They may not be anything that bothers anyone else because they don't even know it's there, but I know what is happening and it bothers me.
Tomorrow, I will be sharing with you Part Two of Hidden Clutter. I will be talking about the clutter that's different...the clutter that is weighing down our hearts. See you then!
