I have decided to join Crystal at Biblical Womanhood in the Making Your Home a Haven Challenge. So here is day 1. I had forgotten about the challenge until I visited her blog late this afternoon. I quickly went upstairs to my room and had a few minutes of quiettime and then put on my apron and tackled our entryway. It wasn’t a huge mess, like it was this morning. I hadalready tidied it up some this morning, not even knowing that Crystal would start the challenge with the entryway! But it still needed some attention.
In my Bible reading I read Ps. 71. There were two verses that jumped out at me.
Ps. 71:1 "In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion" and verse 14, "But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more". I really liked "and praise thee more and more" We do have so much to praise Him for! I then had a time of prayer.
This is what you would see when you first come in the front door.
So here I am standing at the door, apron on and my littlest helper with me. 🙂 I didn’t open the door like I was coming in because we are having a winter storm here today. Wind and snow! Burrrr…..
I had gone downstairs with a couple of things to put away, when I came back up there was my oldest son with apron on wanting to help me. 🙂 Here is he putting a hat away. I use this dresser for the winter hat, mittins and scarves. Very handy and hides the winter clutter. 🙂
All done! Looks so much better! I wiped down the door and washed the window too.
Neat and tidy, this dresser top sure likes to collect clutter!!
When I completed this job, there was a cup of tea waiting for me! 🙂
