What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

But a moment

I have but a moment to post this, and in truth not even that. Some very good friends of ours from our OLD home are coming to visit us at our NEW home. We get them for the WHOLE weekend!!! And they just happen to have 11 children. We are so POSITIVELY excited about them coming--but I must say, my head is filled with all the "oh-I wish THIS were done" or "LOOK at THAT! Can I get that finished before they arrive!?!" while at the same time thinking "What in the WORLD am I going to feed them?!?" and "I REALLY wish I had a dishwasher now!"

So-my days are filled with unpacking that LAST straggling box that has been hiding out in the corner, planning some serious meals (and grocery shopping for them! wow!), and trying to get all the household projects done that I can-while also trying to prepare the food ahead of time so that we can spend our time VISITING instead of cooking, all the while keeping up on laundry and all other household issues that will be put on hold once they arrive. Thankfully, they are *good* friends and don't give a lick about curtains not being hung yet. I HOPE.

I am so stinkin' excited I can hardly sit still. Which is good thing, because I really don't have time to. Even still, I did discover this little video clip and did very much enjoy it. Trust me. If I have time to watch it today-YOU do too!

(I discovered this clip originally on the Voddie Baucham Blog)

Have a wonderful time with all your guests! Don't worry about the dishwasher...you've got all those extra helping hands. (And I sure hope you aren't shy about asking for help!)

PS--I noticed on the sidebar the correct way to pronounce "Adele." I love that!

I love having company! Of course, like you, I stress out before, but love having people here...especially GOOD friends who don't care about unfinished kitchens, unpacked boxes, or silly things like that.
And...I do have a dishwasher...but it doesn't work, so at least you get to use the space a dish washer would take up for other storage! I just have this big box taking up valuble storage space!! ACK!!
Have a TON of FUN with your friends!
