I know that I was posting cooking things all the time and I felt like people should know that I do clean and I do have children as well.  I have noticed that since doing my new “Keeping the Home” more I haven’t had as much time for baking (which I love).  Although, I just finished sewing my daughter’s Easter dress so that could explain part of it.

Anyway, Sunday night I sat down and actually wrote out my daily and weekly cleaning list.  I had a cleaning schedule before, but I have found that I really need to revamp it mostly because we seem to have A LOT more laundry than we used to and we even reuse our towels.  I have it written out right now, but I will try to type it up and post it later if you all are just so interested (I know you are).  It really helps me to have a list written out to go by otherwise I just stumble around all morning and never really get anything accomplished.

Another thing I am doing starting this week is weaning myself off of soda.  I know, I am six months pregnant so I shouldn’t really be drinking it anyway but now I really am trying not to.    So that is my life – cleaning and drinking water – WOW could it get any better!

Does these posts seem like they are sounding like Deep Thoughts by Gretchen or what?

Anyway, I want to share some more verses with you.    All from Matthew 6 (Do not worry) –
25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?

26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?

28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;

29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’

32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.

33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

and the NIV version:

4Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Planning is not a bad thing.  It is always good to have a plan, but worrying will not help anything.  So do your best, have a plan and leave the rest up to God, remember He will direct your way!
