I am organizationally challenged.
This week, just like most of the others, has had its interruptions. Take yesterday for example, I was pretty impressed with myself when by noon I had picked up the parts of the house on my list, dinner was simmering on the stove and I was completely dressed. Successful day, right?
One would think so, until we went to Wal Mart. While cruising the aisles at Wally World, I decide that since I’ve jumped on the organizing train over at Renee’s blog, I would buy this nifty under-the-bed organizing system. I would take half my closet, put it under my bed and solve all mu organizational challenges. I was super pumped. Dinner, make up and organization. What a day!
Then the afternoon happened. Nothing really over-the-top or spectacular occurred to rock my world. It was the day that just kept giving. Kids, homework, activities, friends, dinner, dishes, laundry, homework.
And that nifty organizational system that was gonna make my life spectacular? Didn’t even come close to fitting under my bed. I pushed and pushed and pushed. There’s no way it’s even wedging under there, folks. So I’m off to find another system that will solve my lack of domestic organizational skills.
I will post pictures of this closet chaos before I start. It may not be this week as I’m running on little sleep. This week is so busy I actually wrote the word, “breathe,” on my calendar next week!
I love how Renee said that we were created for beauty, peace and order because we are to be like God. For the first time I saw the relationship between my struggles and my surroundings on a different level. The Bible says that God does not like disorder but he loves peace.
I saw how disorder breeds chaos in my heart. When I thought of the disorderly places in my home, like my closet, my desk pile and my pantry, I thought of confusion, chaos and waste. When I think of having these areas organized I think of peace, order and efficiency.
I now have more than just desire to get these areas whipped into shape. I want to have not only a peaceful home but a peaceful heart.
For God is not a God of disorder but of peace. 1 Corinthians 14:33
