Messy Melissa? Yes!

November 14, 2011

I thought that you might enjoy this blog post written by a home school mom. It’s entitled “I’m a Mess, You’re a  Mess, We’re All Just Lovely Messes.” It was written by Stephanie over at

I read it this morning, just in time to not throw everything out of my garage and onto the side of the road! Once again, I am waiting to hear what our new assignment might be and am having an overwhelming urge to purge. Are we going overseas again? Possibly!

I think that this lady shares some good insights. I especially like this:

“We’re all just such a lovely mess. Together. I think that there is something powerful that happens when we are willing to say out loud to each other that we don’t have it all together and we can’t keep up with everything and though one area of our life might look amazing there are others that don’t look nearly so pretty if we were to throw open our closet doors and lift up the bedskirts and let others see our dustbunnies and cobwebs and dirty socks.

We need to give each other permission to be imperfect also, and then we can point one another in the direction of the ultimate Grace-Giver himself. Because he gives grace that covers sticky floors and laundry piled up and scrambled eggs for dinner (again).”

2 Thessalonians 1:2

New American Standard Bible (NASB)

2 Grace to you and peace from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
