My Unorganized Life (My Insecurities)
I have always been unorganized. My intentions on the first day of school were good. My folders were colored coordinated. My extra pencils were sharpened and put in there pouch. Every little thing was ready. But, at the end of the
week day my organization was shot because it didn’t work for what my teachers were planning. I didn’t always understand the way my teachers wanted things organized so I lost hope and everything ended up shoved in the same giant folder.
I think I can say that I’m much more organized now, but the things that bother me are the
junk drawers junk closets in my house and my time management! The junk closets and drawers will get organized eventually but, my biggest improvement as of yet are my morning and evening routines. Doing these things help me feel calm and ready for the day.
These routines made for a very nice calm Sunday morning before church. (Granted we live 5 minutes from church and I don’t have to be there until 10ish)
- load dishwasher
- pick out clothes for Jack, Dean, and Myself
- take a shower and blow dry hair
- make to do list for the next day
- clean up around the house
- make the bed/open curtains and blinds
- get dressed/straighten hair/make-up
- unload dishwasher
- start a load of clothes
- eat breakfast with the boys
- get the boys dressed
- look over to do list
these things most of these things last night and this morning and it made for a nice Sunday morning! I was calm this morning so instead of rushing in and waking up the boys, I put on their favorite Bible songs and they woke up happy and smiling instead of cranky! Jackson was so excited and Dean was dancing! Normally in the Morrow house there are no smiles before breakfast. This was a big beautiful improvement! Hopefully I can continue to work on perfecting my evening and morning routines because they really make for a peaceful start to any day.
I am just like I was as a young student when I try to comprehend the organization of God’s will. I pray that God will reveal to me his way of organizing my life to coincide with his will. I think that God’s organization is incredibly to intense for me to comprehend and I pray that I can open myself and my home to him. I pray that I can become more efficient at living daily so that when he sends something my way I can easily understand it and tackle it.
