Excerpt: The Pursuit of God, The Human Thirst for the Divine, A.W. Tozer

O God, I have tasted Thy goodness, and it has both satisfied me and made me thirsty for more. I am painfully conscious of my need of further grace. I am ashamed of my lack of desire. O God, The Triune God, I want to want Thee; I long to be filled with longing; I thirst to be made more thirsty still. Show me Thy glory, I pray Thee, that so I may know Thee indeed. Begin in mercy a new work of love within me. Say to my soul, "Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away." Then give me grace to rise and follow Thee up from this misty lowland where I have wondered so long. In Jesus' name. Amen

Spring Cleaning

I've been Spring cleaning this week.  My motivation.......the revival evangelist and his wife will be spending a couple of days with us!  :D

Yesterday, I worked on the dining room/formal living room area all day long.

Today, I worked on the guest bedroom and the "man cave."  I switched some of the furniture around in the guest room, bought new sheets for that bed.  I had been using the King size that I had in Buffalo when I put 2 air mattresses together for Michael and Jessica to sleep on when they came for a visit.  However, since the guest bed is a queen size, I was always having to tuck lots of the fitted sheet under the mattress and the flat sheet hung WAAAAAY down the side of the bed.  Plus, the king size pillow cases had to be tucked in!  I was tired of having to do all of that, so I bought a new set!  I also bought some artificial tulips for a vase to add a nice touch of spring to the room!  I also replaced the half length mirror for a full length one.

That room being done, I moved on to the "man cave."  WHAT a mess I discovered behind the hide-a-bed couch!  Spider webs, bugs and dirt and dust GALORE!!!  I can safely say that I have not pulled that couch out since we moved here in August 2008!  I moved all of the other furniture out to sweep around and under everything.  Wiped down the FILTHY blinds, dusted and swept.  The rag was so dirty that I just threw it away!

Then I did a few things in the kitchen, put the king size sheets in the wash and sat down!

Tomorrow, I need to call Mrs. Grigsby to find out if they have any food allergies or restrictions so I can begin planning my menus.  I also need to buy new curtains for the "man cave."  I will do that after I go to the treadmill.  I'm not sure what room I'm going to tackle tomorrow!  I need to tackle the laundry room and/or my craft room as things I take out of the other rooms are landing in these 2 rooms!  YIKES!  I need to have a yard sale SOONER than later, for sure!  :D

OK, that's it for me!
