Miracle of the Week: None this Week

Parable of the Week: Unmerciful servant

I'm not sure how last week got away from me, but it did. The issue is that the only time I really have to work on chores is right before the girls wake up and the hour in the afternoon when they're down for their afternoon nap. So, last week, my priority was to sort through all the hand me down clothes the girls have gotten, store them, remove all their summer clothes, wash and store them, and then wash all the fall and winter clothes to replace the summer ones. I don't ever remember such an ordeal growing up, however, I also lived in a much more steady climate and we never got hand-me-downs. It's easy to just get rid of old clothes and replace them with new ones. Anyway, this whole ordeal of sorting, washing, and storing clothes took up all of my free time when the girls were down and the rest of the time was used to just maintain the minimal daily chores I could get away with. I hope the Lord will give me the opportunity to get more caught up in my house work as well as the opportunity to go to Bible study this week. I missed out on our last Bible study because I felt a need to stay home since I was behind again on house work. May the Lord help me serve Him better in my home by getting the feeding I need at church.
