Do you ever have things you know you should do but don’t want to?

I have to clean the house today.

I know that afterwards I’m going to feel so much better about it all, but as of right now, I’m really not looking forward to it.

I don’t have anything else to do today but this one simple chore.

And yet, I’m complaining and trying to do everything in my power to put it all off.

Do you spring clean? I try to do a deep clean once a month or so, just to clear the dog hair and cob webs out as best that I can.

It got me thinking this morning though (after my devotions) that my soul could probably use this type of spring cleaning as well. As much as I blog, it isn’t something that I put a ton of time into. And maybe that shows. I don’t know. Either way, I decided this morning to try to do things in my life differently and that was to do more things with love.

The bible says to do this, and I’ve learned over my short time on this Earth, that what the big book says, is not only true, but something to heed. So, do it…God says so.

I could laugh right now though at what a human vacuum sweeper I am. I already feel like someone who picks up after everyone. But with love in my heart, it gives me a certain purpose that I can’t quite explain. It makes me happy. Needed. Useful. It’s something I need to work on though.

Being a mom is such a privilege. And a wife is just icing on the cake. So today, I will CHOOSE to do all things with love in my heart and that includes cleaning up. I’m cleaning up my act, AND my house! And Amen to that!

“Do everything in love.” 1 Corinthians 16:14
