II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Cooking and cleaning can wait for tomorrow...

Hi everyone. It's nap time around my house and there are about a hundred things I should be doing right now...and blogging is not one of them. But, for some unknown reason, I am sitting here typing away anyway. How many of you have come to the point in your life where you realize that cleaning your house is bitter sweet. It's a lot like cooking a nice dinner. You spend a great deal of time preparing, you get to enjoy the finshed product for a very minimal amount of time and then the whole process starts all over again. Around my house, I am lucky to get one whole room cleaned up before someone comes in behind me and starts undoing all my hard work. There is something about a toy that has just been placed into a toybox that makes it the most interesting and irresistable thing to play with in the house. Never mind the fact that there are 50 other toys spread all over the floor...No, the one that has just been put away is the one the kids want to play with. And even that would be okay if it lasted for any length of time...but each time I pick up another toy to put it away, that toy then becomes the "most interesting" thing to play with. Thus, the title of this post "Cooking and cleaning can wait for tomorrow." Except this time "tomorrow" refers to the day when my kids are grown and out of the house. ha ha
Anyway, I'm not sure where all that came from....maybe I am having second-thoughts since I am about to start cleaning the house?? who knows. At least for tonight, the house will be clean and a nice dinner will be cooked. For now, I'll try not to think about the fact that the very moment that is all finished, I will have to begin washing the dishes, bathing the kids, putting away laundry and so on and so on!
Such is life...........
