I have been thinking about the home! The sight, smell and the feel of it! I'm passionate about making a house a home! I want my home to be inviting and comfortable, but I want to keep a healthy perspective on it. Does anyone else struggle with this? Where do you draw the line between an inviting home and being consumed by it? Am I trying to keep my home orderly to bless my family or because I want to impress others?
In my life I try to keep the order of God, my husband, my girls, my home and then my job. Notice I said "I try", because many times I fail and the order gets mixed up! Yet, I still strive to keep this goal with the right perspective. I am making some small steps to try and keep the correct order.
For instance, I'm setting my alarm earlier to spend time with God! I make a point several times throughout the day to focus on my husband and girls. I'm trying to keep the house looking presentable.
What have you found to help you keep a "proper perspective" in dealing with your home?
