a work in progress...

I'm wondering if I don't have anything better to do than to mess with my template (and the font and of course the lovely colors) here.  Geez, I have a whole lot to do!  I have been in the midst of cleaning out this infamous back room for a...month ( I think.)  I have to explain- we are a 6 person family living in 2 bedrooms WITH a third bedroom as storage---anyone see a problem here?!

Needless to say, with much prayer and large trash bags and a yard sale-we are finally using the third bedroom!  Last night ( I tell you this because hopefully you'll feel better about yourself) I went through the dreaded paperwork and found utility bills from 2000!  Guess I don't need those anymore, right? ;)

I have been released from the pack rat mentality (praise the Lord!) but it truly is a process.  So, all of you precious organized, time oriented, efficient people-don't take these gift for granted...and extend grace to those who don't possess these gifts naturally...we're a work in progress!

Pictures to come....before and afters (brace yourselves!)

Some inspiring pictures over at my letters to emily (a sweet blog that blesses.)


Praying all is well...

       your consolation brought joy to my soul.

i will be praying, because i believe
with all my heart that you are doing
the MOST important work in the
