Since I never sleep as well when dh isn’t around, I decided that instead of worrying about his hospital visit or safe travels, I would get some things done that needed to be done. Last night I organized the bedroom somewhat and tonight I decided to clean the carpets. It is nearly 1:30 am but I not only cleaned the carpets, I did a little internal housekeeping as well. I decided that with each spray of clean water from the carpet cleaner, I would think of two blessings. Then as I pulled the machine back and sucked up the dirty water, I would think of two worries and give them to the Lord. My first surprise was that my blessings and my worries are pretty much one and the same, the girls, my work, our friends, our home and our church.
It felt so good to air out the house and my soul. I ended up with a double blessing because now I have cleaner carpets and a lighter heart.
