Essentials

December 27, 2018

Post Christmas clean up has begun. I normally leave my tree up until after the New Year, but not this time. The garage has been set up as wrapping central for weeks, and I’m ready to get my kitchen table back in the house. Not too quickly though. I’m taking the time to reorganize and redistribute our decorations. Organizing, recycling and discarding, labeling and grouping like things together by color and purpose. All this reorganization is an attempt to reduce the number of boxes that we store, and hopefully, it will make things simpler in the future. Yes, it’s been a wonderful Christmas, but I’m ready to get back to normal. Well ... as normal as we usually are anyway <big grin>.

1 Corinthians 14:40 AMP
“But all things must be done appropriately and in an orderly manner.”

Organizing is not a new concept, but it is one that we tend to put off as long as possible. Organizing takes time and effort. The more hands one has committed to an organizational project makes it easier and can be helpful, although there are times when a one person job works the best. Working efficiently and effectively is the goal. It’s important to be ready and prepared for any project, and that means we should always begin with prayer. Seek God's help first. After all our God is a great organizer; He keeps track of everything, including our organization skills (or lack there of). Asking God for His guidance and encouragement along the way is an essential part of any project (and especially helpful {essential really} when we are reorganizing something). Keeping things in good order is a good thing, and it's a God thing, and that makes it good for us on so many levels. May our post Christmas repacking be inspired, creative, fruitful, and fun for all involved.
