Life is Messy…Can You Relate?

You’re picking up toys on the living room floor
for the 15th time today
Matching up socks and sweeping up lost
Cheerios that got away
You put a baby on your hip and color on your lips
and head out the door
And while I may not know you I bet I know you

Taking a look at this picture you can probably imagine the day I was having. In the midst of Princess Jubilee’s fun throwing crushed pretzels all over the floor (and look at her trying to share)–I stood, a little dumbfounded, a lot overwhelmed, and totally exhausted. What a mess, I thought. And I wasn’t just talking about the newly created one on the floor. It seemed like everything at that moment in my life was messy.

Later that day, I turned on the radio to our favorite station, 91.9 FM (in the DC Metro Area) and a song I am very familiar with came on. I know the chorus but this time, I think the Lord tuned my ears to all of the words. As I listened (and then as I started gleefully dancing away in my car) I shouted “this song totally gets me!!”

So here is my gift to all of you hard working parents who sometimes may get a little overwhelmed by life’s messes and who may feel a bit under-whelmed by your day’s labor. Remember, God loves messes and “Everything you do — do to the glory of the One who made you!”

Enjoy the song, may it bless you as it does me!

 Stay Encouraged & Be Blessed!
