You see, I really WANT to be organized and put together. I really TRY to make people believe that I am organized and put together. Every Tuesday night, I host our Life Community group at our house (which will be the focus of my post tomorrow). It is so important to me that the parts of my home that people see are clean and neat and pretty. After work, I will furiously straighten, clean and stuff things behind closed doors... All of this just so the people that I am supposed to be the most transparent with don't see my mess.
I am a messy and disorganized person on the outside and the inside.
Honestly, you are, too.
Maybe you aren't messy on the outside - maybe your cabinets are the picture of perfection and you catch the dust before it dares to hit the furniture - but the inside is probably cluttered and piled and dirty. I am so passionate about living authentically and honestly, and it just does not sit right for me to try to hide the mess anymore.
That is not the way we were created to live.
So, the laundry room is the first room to be cleaned out. I have to open the door, face the mess, and starting straightening. This journey began with the help of my sweet man this weekend, and I'll show you the final product when it is finished. I don't really want to have to learn this lesson again, so I'm going to try to do it right this time.
