Welcome to Our Mess ~ And Why I’m Okay With That

It seems like FOREVER now that we’ve been drowning in MESS here at our house.  Have you ever heard of FlyLady’s C.H.A.O.S. {Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome}?

That’s us ALL the time.

But recently, I’ve been making progress in baby steps.

So, the house looks cleanER to me.

I realize that most people would step into our house and still see a mess, but for me?  I see progress.  And I LOVE it.

In my Bible Study group we’re studying Lysa Teurkeurst’s “Unglued”.  She talks a lot about imperfect progress.  It’s definitely not perfect, but AT LEAST it’s progress.

And that’s where we are right now.

So, you might still see the clutter, and the piles of (CLEAN!) laundry ~ because I’m much more comfortable about letting people in to our mess, now! ~ but I see baby steps.

Ahhhhhhhh.  It feels good.   🙂

In what area(s) are you progressing imperfectly?  Would you share in the comments below?
