Time for the Edges

One of the joys of living I the country is dealing with the dust, dirt and mud, depending on the season. With 7 of us in and out the door, our floors get dirty fast so it's not uncommon for one of us to run around with the broom and do a quick sweep of the walkways. It works as a quick fix, but we still need to take the time and do a thorough job of sweeping everyday.

Recently I've been just sweeping the walkways of my life. Sweeping the clumps of mud, chunks of dirt and all the grit of life out of the way so I can keep rushing on. But it's not working well. In fact, it's caught up to me.

All around the edges of my life there's a mess and it's time for me to take care of it.

The other day I was finally able to do the cleaning that's been on my to-do list for 2-3 Saturdays and it was such a relief to get it done. I even enjoyed doing it! I'm looking forward to doing the same thing in my life now. I NEED to do the same thing in my life. For me, my marriage and my family.

Just wanted to let you know why I won't be around as much as I was planning. This is a good thing and although the path here was not nice, I'm glad to be here.

How about the edges of your life? Have you been doing quick sweeps of the walkways but neglecting the edges?


  1. Super reminder, dear. Praying as you work on those edges.

  2. I always enjoy your posts, Patty. I can't wait till December when NaNo is over. Everything in my life is messy--nevermind the edges:).


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
