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

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!
