It all happend before lunchtime…

It happened just this week. It was noon.  A friend had texted me to say “Hi,” and innocently asked how my morning had been. I couldn’t possibly TEXT it all. I was feeling like, well, like the crazy picture of me at the top of this post. So I sent her this email below. I thought you might enjoy a little laugh & a bit of encouragement!

It’s noon and so far…
– An entire bottle of hand soap hit the floor in the bathroom (ever tried cleanin’ that up?  Sticky goo)

–  No lesson plans this week for Max & Chase… just wingin’ it through their books…

– Laundry pile has eaten the remaining clean clothes in my closet

–  I’d straighten up my house but I can’t find the furniture, it’s hidden under several layers of dust

– There’s a national fruit fly convention in my kitchen AND bathrooms!

– I’m NOT wearing any make-up yet

– Pretty sure I could really use a shower

– Kids haven’t eaten any fruit or veggies today

– and I’m stuffin my face full of tortilla chips!

But… I spoke with Jesus about all this and He doesn’t seem upset by any of it… so I’m trying NOT to be either!  🙂

  1. Aww Netta, that IS encouraging! No joke! 🙂 it’s nice to know that my life isn’t the only crazy not-according-to-Plan one out there. And it’s nice to be reminded by Jesus what really matters 🙂 I love you!

  2. tee hee! I could so comment! HAHA! but you already know what I have to say 🙂

    I’m still jealous about the soap because you don’t have to clean your bathroom for a month because it’s so clean!

  3. Oh my! Lol. I love the perspective too – it doesn’t upset Jesus, so why should it upset us? Thanks for keeping’ it real. 😉

  4. haha. it’s funny how these things upset us (me too!) and how they really aren’t important to Jesus. Well, I mean they are, but not really. My goal has been to find out what He’s concerned about that and pay attention, I spend way too much time worrying about things that don’t matter.
    Thanks for sharing your craziness, helps me not feel so crazy 🙂
    LOVE YOU!!
