In spite of all my best intentions and 5 books cover to cover, I am a messy. It has been a problem since I was a kid. The past two and a half years were very rough for me personally. My son was bullied by kids that both of us have known since kindergarten. I fell into a deep depression and struggled to be with people.
Last year, my word was “connect.” I forced myself to get out and socialize with people. It wasn’t as good as I wanted but I was so much better than it had been.
I am going to challenge myself to keep my house clean, with the help and in spite of my three teenagers. My word then is “Hospitality.” For me, it will take a lot of courage to let people in my house. I have felt always that this is a calling from God and that I have been too scared to trust Him. It’s time for me to step out in faith.
ps My son is doing quite well this school year. We are very thankful.
