Decently and in order…

Let all things be done decently and in order.
1 Corinthians 14:40

I’ve always enjoyed this verse. There are many verses that I enjoy reading and reminding myself of when I go about my days. When life gets stressful, I become more organized than I already am, which makes perfect sense to me since it’s within my control to keep order in my surroundings. For myself, I find it to be another form of therapy. Despite how tumultuous the world may be, there’s a sense of satisfaction just sitting in a clean home. Yes, it requires extra work; however, the rewards are that my house is not disorganized. Disorder, find that adds to my stress. That’s a hard pass for me.

My parents continue to improve, and my brother and I meet with my mother’s doctor next week. We’re hoping that she’ll be home soon. She’s been in the hospital for a month. She’s actually in the best place that she could be. My mother was a nurse at the hospital and well-loved/respected. She has a steady flow of nurses, doctors, and other support staff that come to see her daily. That is not an exaggeration. In anticipation of her return home, my lovely daughter and I will be turning a room into a bedroom. I took today off to relax a bit and get that room in order, with her help. Later today, or this weekend, I’ll be baking. My nephew’s birthday is on Monday, and I want to make sure that I do something nice for that occasion.

I’m so happy to hear things look like they are improving. I need to get more organized! I have recently been voted on to be our next Zonta President and I really need to step up my game on being more organized. It’s not my strong point…but…I try. I hope you have fun baking and Happy Birthday on Monday to your nephew! My birthday is on Wednesday. My husband’s was yesterday! I’ll me interested in hearing more about the bedroom conversion, too. Good luck with that!


Glad to see that things are going well. God bless, cheers!
