What I Learned This Week



I am really excited to have found this great blog carnival over at Musings of a Housewife.

I am thrilled that a bunch of blogs would get together and share tips and tools (and what ever else) they have learned in a week.

Ok so here is what I have learned this week:
1. I can't but God can. So I will believe in God and His spirit in me to accomplish the things I need to.

2. An organized pantry is such a huge blessing. I went to the Dollar Giant and bought 10 plastic baskets (must buy more to organize the rest of my house). I labeled them (an extremely important step in organization). And filled them with the various food items belonging to the category on the label. Bask with me in the wonderfulness of my pantry.


3. In less than 6 hours a neat and orderly house can go back to being scattered and cluttered. (My pantry is still neat and orderly though). Sigh. And I am then reminded once again that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Remember to enter my Giveaway!

***Love*** your pantry. Also love that you didn't have to cut off your arm at The Container Store (even though I love that place) to accomplish your mission.
God ***can*** do all things!!!

Your pantry looks wonderful. I have the same problem when I clean my house...but then you can look at your organized pantry.

It's always good to remember to turn things that we can't handle over to God!

Great job on your pantry. I need to get some organizing done around my house. The baskets are a great idea.

My pantry is good, I like the baskets but they wouldn't work well for me,,,,now my linen closet on the other hand needs help. Are you on your way?
