This continues to be an ongoing struggle for me–that of working on making my home a lovely place to be, and that of being truly content. I’m sure these two things can go hand in hand in a wonderful balance, and yet somehow I don’t think I’ve always found the perfect blend of contented loveliness!
My husband and I will celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary at the end of the month and one of my goals for awhile has been to work at making our bedroom more of a peaceful retreat place. I thought it would be nice to invest a little into making our room like the kind of bed and breakfast room that we would want to get away to! So I came up with a “to do”/”to buy” list of sorts and I have started to work in there…cleaning, organizing and decluttering. And it looks so much better already. I took some things out and rearranged others…and it really felt so freeing to have less!! So then I got to thinking about those things on my “to buy” list. Will they really bring the peace and rest and contentment to the room that I long for ~ or do I already have enough?
I guess there is some pondering and praying to do on my part. I suppose that maybe there is no simple answer. And what would be right for me might not be the same for someone else. It’s just something that I continue to think about as a homemaker and as a Christian and as a steward of all that the Lord has blessed me with.
Have a blessed weekend! ♥
