I Believe- now dishes clean thyself!

I saw this beautiful picture today and fell in love with the colors and the verse. But in my carnality and lack of sleep (5 AM drop off for Emma going to Space Camp) - It hit me in a funny way..... 

I am blessed today because I believe: 
  •  That my husband sits and daydreams about me all day at work.
  • That my house is going to clean itself.
  • That my groceries are going to appear in my cupboard and auto-organize themselves in alphabetical order.
  • That my co-worker dog is going to clean up her own potty.
  • That my desk is going to explode and the particles will re-adhere and suddenly everything will be in it's place.
  • That all of the work I have to do this weekend will be completed with the flash of a wand.
  • That the 67 emails in my in-box will be answered.
  • That the 4 voice-mails will handle themselves.
  • That my girls will never desire to leave home or marry- they will want to live with their Momma and tell her how amazing she is daily.

It's fun daydreaming isn't it? I can sit here in la-la land all day long and believe whatever I want-  but alas my Grandmother and Mother taught me better. "But faith without works is death." James 2:26 Another great one my Grandmother and Mother passed along was - "Whatever your hands find to do- do it with all your might." Ecc. 9:10 

So even though I have paused to look at look at pretty pictures and imagine my work away- I am still responsible to get up off my fluffy bottom and do it. A while ago a friend called me to come to her home. She needed to "talk". I went to  I went to her home. When I arrived I was met by mounds of dirty dishes in her sink on her counter tops. Now let me insert here- I am not-a-judging as my house is like this a lot! She told me- I have been praying that God would give me the desire and strength to clean this up- but it just hasn't happened yet. The bad news about that day was that I had not stopped to attach my "Sweet Mouth Filter".  I quickly said, "Sometimes the Lord gives us the common sense to know we have to get up and clean our house before our friends- the rodents and insects take over." I think this caught both of us off guard. One of those- Did those words just fly out of my mouth things.

Every once in a while I get a good reminder from the Lord that there is a time and season for everything. Right now it  not the time for day-dreaming it is a time for taking up the reigns of the battles I am facing and pray them through. WITH GOD nothing is impossible. I believe that GOD is able. I am going to have the victory. (jumping off my little platform- as I was just -a - preaching- to-myself- there)  

Have a blessed weekend. I don't stop enough to say thank for stopping by this little blog. You all are amazing and I thank you for each comment, note, and email!
