It's a New Year!
Maybe I'm a bit slow, but I've been preoccupied with sickness. I love a fresh start. Rachel's getting out of the newborn phase and now I can start to develop some new habits and routines. I'm asking God for a new attitude about structure and neatness. Somewhere along the line I've equated that with dull, boring, and no fun. But beauty and order are what God's about. And creativity.
So God, do a new thing in me. Create in me a clean heart...and around me a clean house, that the most precious people in my life may enjoy living here and that I may enjoy a guilt-free, joy-filled spirit. Amen. (I trust that this will only bring me more freedom and creativity and not less).
