Much given, much required

If you've ever come over, there is a good chance that there are papers on almost every surface and the place needs a good dusting, and even quite possibly the dishwasher needs to be emptied and filled again. That's just the way it is.

Over the break while I was home, my house was picked up, straightened, and all that jazz, but about 1/2 hour after I went back to work a hurricane struck, again. That hurricane is Hurricane Busy. Someone said on Sunday as I yelled across the room for a hug, they said 'you look busy' I said 'if you what til I'm not busy, you'll never get a hug'... lol

I would love a well kept, clean house, and have even considered getting a housekeeper to come in twice a month change the beds, wash floors, sweep, vacuum, dust, and give the place a good once over. And I haven't given up on the that thought either.

In this day and age, I am fortunate to have been provided a great job and even more fortunately, I've been called to serve an amazing God, which means that sometimes I spend 5 hours at the church on a Saturday or my dining room is filled with provision for mission trips. That's just the way it is, and I am ok with it, most days...

As a start to my day, up at 5:30, shoveled the sidewalk and walkway to porch (thankfully a snow angel came and plowed my driveway - Praise God for snow angels!!), threw in a load of laundry, bathed, hair blow dryed, house picked up a little, about to make lunches, empty the dishwasher, and ski-daddled off to work!

This is what I call life, filled to the rim with the blessings of God! To whom much is given, much is required...

1 Cor 4:1-3
1So then, men ought to regard us as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the secret things of God. 2Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful. 3I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself.

as you know, I clean houses....
Unfortunately Michigan is a tad far for my commute! Anything over 10 miles I charge extra for my gas, in your case it would have to be a whole lot of extra! Ha Ha!
