Clean Heart, Clean Home

I had posted that I was going to start the Clean Heart Clean Home Challenge as developed by Amy, however I just discovered her Colossal Clutter Clean Up challenge. If you are like me you'll probably want to start here too. However, if you are already organized and clutter free, then you'll want to start on the Clean Heart Clean Home to really get in there and clean. I also am struggling as to what is the best way to do this as I thought it would be encouraging for us to follow along together, however I also don't want anyone to feel defeated if they fall behind (like myself!) So here is the link to Amy's site, look it over and see where you fit in best, pray about what it is that you need to accomplish and if you want to partner with me for support that would be great.

For today: Take down any Christmas decorations still up and put them away where they belong (not at the back door or at the base of the stairs). We are also suppose to thin out any decorations that we don't truly love or have sentimental attachment to. This will be a hard one for me. I always thought the more decorations the better.
For this week:
Read pages 1-18 and 29-41 (It is a quick read) for the introduction of Colossal Clutter Clean Up, Step One to Clean Your Heart, Week One Dial G-O-D Devotional, Step Two What lists to print or follow, Step Three: Purging Thinking. I would recommend printing pages 65 (or your current schedule), 63, 18 & 42 to start with.

Yes it's a lot this 1st week, but this week we are concentrating on prepping our hearts for this life change. We will be starting on the rooms and the actual work next week. Take the time this week to pray that rather being trained in habit that we will be led by the Lord. Is a home in chaos in order with the Lord, does it align with His scripture? For those of you in Siloam that want to follow along, at the end we will be having a party in the form of a garage sale.

I could never attempt to be as organized and planned out as you (because my brain just doesn't work that way) but I like the idea of a clean sweep sort of thing at the New Year. It is fun to try and right all of the housekeeping wrongs of my previous years. There are just so many of them, the task is daunting. hee hee

I'll have to check into these sites and see what good stuff is going on. Keep up the great work and HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOURS TOO! :D

I rarely get rid of holiday decor. But I did try, just to prove that I could.
You posted this and then Adelia had the "mite" talk with me... now I'll be scouring all of my floors and beds...and just about everything else.
Thanks, Ladies! ;-)
