Well, Crystal Paine is continuing her series on Spring cleaning and she has been in the kitchen. Our kitchen is so often used that most of the things she is discussing are automatic around here. It has to be tat way with a big family. Our kitchen is cleaned from top to bottom 3 times a day and the fridge completely done every couple days, along with the pantry. The floors are swept 3 times daily, all dishes done, counters wiped, microwave cleaned, the works.
Now my house doesn’t not stay perfect all day, but I have to know that everything was completely done at least once every day. Floors, dusting, bathrooms. Since we are ahead of the game there, we are blessed to be able to give my daughter what I would loved to have had. Before she had her baby I told her when the time came we would give her maid service for two weeks. My plan is to give her two weeks with nothing required of her, giving her blessed time with her new babe and her devoted husband. Can you imagine how well adjusted the rest of Mommyhood would be if we all had that opportunity? But most don’t for various reasons. April is blessed with 4 sisters. And I think if we serve one another like the Lord intends then becoming parents becomes more of a blessing and we in turn are honored to have more children happily, and then they can serve their siblings and soon and so on. And pretty soon the Christians will have finally “gone forth and multiplied” and maybe just maybe we can overtake the world!
Had to get a little preaching in there with the spring cleaning! Yes I have a motive in all that I do, to further God’s Kingdom. Anyway, if you want to join Crystal in cleaning your house, here is her link, as for us, we will be cheerfully cleaning someone else’s house today.
