Making Our Home a Haven Challenge Week 3

With the music on and the candle lit...(I have been very faithful each day in doing this) it's now onto the week #3 challenge which is looking for the clutter that takes up our lives and to fix it. I seriously have no clutter in my house..thanks to a wonderful husband who helped me fall-clean and me being a neat-freak.  But there are other areas in my life where I need to clean up the clutter. The first thing is my physical health..I used to be very faithful in working out most days of the week, but I have failed in this area the last few weeks. I make excuses and I say 'I'm too busy or tired'. You know, all of those reasons not to work out. But as of this past Saturday I blew the dust off the treadmill and got on and I feel so much better. We have to take good care of our bodies so we can be the best we can be for our family. The next place I need to clean up the clutter is in my spiritual life...I used to get up every morning at 6am and spend time in God's word and prayer. As of late, I have been hitting that snooze button. We need to be in the Word and in constant prayer for our family to function in the way God wants it too. So this week clear that clutter in your home or your spiritual life and let it sparkle to the glory of God! Enjoy God's Blessings Today, Tina


  1. Tina - WOW! No clutter in your house - you get a HIGH five for that!!! Way to go! Keep lighting that candle and dig into God's word early in the morning! There is nothing more precious in this world than God's written word! (I read in Ezra 9 this morning) Drink it up and Live well!!!

  2. I wish I could keep my home clutter free! I had hoped that once I cleared out all the excess in my life last year - I wouldn't be faced with this same old task again this fall. I'm a hard nut to break! I cannot help but notice from your post that you were able to go directly to the most needful challenge - past the clutter and mess of this world - and right to the needs of the soul. I envy that.

    I am still working to make my Home a Haven. You can find me at #14 - While' He's Away. The link stands out because it has those silly characters in the middle of the title where I only typed an apostrophe!

  3. Thanks for stopping by...I will check you and follow you! Have a great day!
