As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this home on the edge of town, this family, this neighborhood—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Spring Cleaning Update

The bathroom sparkles and sighs with relief.

Bekah excitedly asks, "What can I scrub next?"

The other rooms shout, "Me too! Me too! When is it my turn?!"

Kati says, "Let's make a list of chores for the other rooms now."

And I groan, "Oh, my aching back."

(I am taking the day off from Spring Cleaning.)


  1. Hi Cheryl!

    I was totally intrigued by the idea of the girls begging for things to clean, so I scrolled down and read your post on Spring Cleaning! And then went to the blog that inspired you and read the cleaning posts too! And I'm ready to start! Next week!

  2. Yes, Kim, we are having a great time... something theraputic about getting things clean. However, I have decided that I need to pace myself...I don't have the energy that my girls have! Whew!

    Happy Spring Cleaning to you! :-)

  3. oh, for the enthusiastic energy of youth; and the ability to view the mundane as an exciting challenge!
