Day 1 (31 days to Clean)

On Day one the Mary Challenge is to write a mission statement as to why you want a clean home! Here is mine! : )

<span class=

Reasons why I want a clean home

~ because I want my husband to feel like a king in his castle

~ because it’s healthier

~ because you can find things easier

~ because I want to be productive

~ so that I can have company come over and not be scrounging around the day of trying to get things presentable before they get here.

“Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands.” proverbs 14:1

“She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.” Proverbs 31:27

31 Days to Clean!

I got my 31 Days to Clean E-book a while back and read it completely through! I am going to be doing it day to day now tho! : ) I am really excited to start! I think I'm going to be doing it a bit differently. I am going to sometimes do more than one day in a day and some days I won't be doing it at all. But I am still hoping that it'll take me about 31 days to go through it! : ) I can't wait to get started! I hope to be blogging about the progress I make as I go! : ) Let's see how I do! ; )

Remembering 4 years ago~

Four years ago was a very difficult time for our family. On May 16th 2007, just before my sister, Majesta's 21st birthday, Majesta crashed on her bike while riding down a hill. These last four years have been ones filled with hope, many prayers, and tears. We all are still hoping that the Lord will heal Majesta completely! Prayers for her are still muchly appreciated! This time of year it seams like so many memories go through my mind. I think about that horrible experience at the hospital four years ago. I always remember the pain of feeling like she was going to die. The doctors came in at one point and told my parents to come and say goodbye because she was in cardiac arrest. I still remember the look on my dad's face when they came back in. It was a look of almost relief yet complete sadness. I knew at that moment when I seen my dad's face that she was okay for the moment. The time in the hospital four years ago seamed like it lasted an eternity. Doctors said things like 'she isn't going to make it' and 'she made it through the night'. My sister is still with us! And even tho she doesn't respond in any way, we know that the Lord has a plan for her. He knows her every need and He is faithful to continue His good work in her! I am very thankful that He is in control of her life!

My sister Trin wrote a blog post about her last year.

A picture story!

These pictures were all taken back to back! This is very common of Susie! :-)

'Oooh look a block!'
'But the block isn't as interesting as what's in my hand'
'I just love burp cloths'
'Right where it belongs'

That's my little sweetheart! She just loves putting things in her mouth, especially burp cloths!
