A Clean Home

December 15, 2007

“When sins are confessed, it’s like picking something up that was dropped on the carpet. If a person learns to pick things up immediately, a thousand things can be dropped on the carpet, and the home will still remain clean. But if things are only picked up once every six months, the result will be an overwhelming house-cleaning job. To continue the illustration, some homes are so messed up, that those responsible for cleaning simply do not know where to start. They do not necessarily like the way it is, but they are simply overwhelmed. But such things always accumulate one at a time. If they had been picked up as fast as they’d been dropped, then the home would have remained clean.”

    I’m totally reading that right now!! I loved the part about how sometimes mothers are tired at the end of the day, and they think that means they must be doing something wrong… when really, it means they did A LOT of things RIGHT! That seemed a profound way of looking at it. Love this book. I actually got it for my brother for Christmas, but I’m sneaking a read before I wrap it. But I’m being very careful not to bend the binding, so he’ll be none the wiser. Ha!!
