Cleaning, church hunting.

This morning at church we took a congregational survey. The objective is to find areas of weakness, improve on them, and help the church to grow. It will be interesting to see the results. Mike and I are dissatisfied with our current church leadership. For this and other varying reasons, I will be church hunting next Sunday.

I have been doing quite a lot of praying and soul-searching over the past few weeks. I feel that God is trying to push me in a new direction, but I'm having a really difficult time determining precisely what He wants me to be doing. Should I continue leading MOPS? Should I keep serving moms and children? Am I missing something???

Cleaning is such a losing battle. I have mountains of laundry to fold. My Granny is coming to visit this week, beginning tomorrow, and Mike is constantly nagging me to "clean something." I know that not everything in our house is spotless, but I wish he'd be a little more specific. What exactly bothers him so much?

I hope this visit with Granny goes well. There always seems to be a lot of tension whenever we are around her for any length of time.

Thanks for the comment... we live in Cary! So we are definitely neighbors! We go to Life Sciences quite frequently bc someone got us a family membership and there is so much variety for everyone. Love that place.

So sorry to hear about your PPD.

Get the big stuff done (cleaning wise) that needs done for company and hide the rest. ;-) Your Granny loves you... clean house or not so perfect. She knows you have little ones and has been down that path of life before. Does Mike have an extra 15 minutes to assist you with folding laundry? Is Hannah a help with anything, yet? Are there any neighbors, friends, or young women in your area who are eager to learn to manage a home? That would be a win-win situation. You could teach - they could help!

Don't focus too much on the church hunt or change in interest until after your visit with Granny is over. Focus on the task at hand and add the extra stresses in bits over time.

I am praying for you today!

Love, Lisa
