Simplify

I've decided my mind is as cluttered as my junk drawer in my kitchen and I'm going to do something about it!

I, like most moms, always have a steady stream of conversation flowing through my mind. I've decided some of it is just not necessary. It weighs me down and makes me distracted.

It is funny how I'm having this revelation as I just listed my house for sale today and am still negotiating for the new one! Is this God's way of telling me to slow down; less is more? I really have felt like God has given me an "extreme attitude makeover" in the last month; but I want to be sensitive to my weaknesses, overcommitment being one of them. I've realized it is real hard to hear My Father's voice (or any other voice for that matter) when I'm racing around like the proverbial chicken with my head cut off. No head means no ears. No ears means no hear. Ha!

So my theme for today is simplicity. Physical and emotional. That means I'm going to go make a cup of tea and spend time praying with my family and leave the laundry for tomorrow. Then I plan to "be still and know that He is God".

Did it work?
