Bursting with Energy


  On one hand, I've totally procrastinated on my Lenten Cleaning, essentially doing no deep cleaning or organizing for the past three weeks. On the other hand, I took advantage of a quiet day, extra energy, and sick kids, by deep cleaning three bathrooms (and organizing the drawers, cabinets, and line closets), the hallway and entrance (plus cleaning and organizing the dvd cabinet), living room (and organized the books, baskets, drawers, and cabinets), watered the house plants, swept the sun room, filled the bird feeder, and dumped lots of trash and recycling.  I find that I have to take advantage of these bursts of cleaning energy rather than trying to force myself to do something each day...  especially when we have a lot going on with school and church life.

Dear Emily,
I feel the same way about cleaning! I do daily tasks to keep things tidy but I depend on those movements of spirit to inspire me to move furniture and clear clutter. I hope you are having a blessed Lent.
