A blessing for my home

A few days ago, my Aunt called my mother and told her she had a rug she wanted to be rid of. My mom told me about it, and I gladly took it off her hands. It's an 8 foot by 10 foot braided rug that was in her living room. She was worried about it being worn, but it looks just about brand new!

So, yesterday, I rolled up the old rug in the living room that the previous owner's dog peed on, and put down the new rug. It looks so good! Thank you, Jesus!

I got to visit with my Aunt and I was inspired by her little home. She lives in a single wide mobile home with her husband and teenage son. She has it done up so cute, uncluttered and spotless! I immediately tackled my home and have been doing so since! Here and there I'm cleaning and decluttering more and more...the ongoing battle.

My goal is to get down to 125 pounds and be organized before I become pregnant with my next child. :)

Hi Kate!

That is so wonderful, even a little thing like a needed rug can remind us that God takes care of us. I hope you are able to get your computer soon! I went to a friend's house in NY (I am in California) and was totally inspired by her clean, lovely, yet modest home too.

Take care,
