My 3 in 30 laundry goals for the month are:
2. Pray for Heart Change.
3. Establish a Routine.
Since I received so many helpful comments on the last post, goal #1 has been completed! Thank you! Here are a few things I have started implementing towards goal #3:
- Starting a load first thing in the morning. I already have a bit of a morning routine, so I have added starting a load of laundry to my routine. This also requires me to gather up laundry the night before, so I have added “gathering” to my evening routine.
- Doing a load every day. I have been surprised that I actually have enough every day for one load. Some of them have been medium-sized ones, but I have had enough every day, except one. I have also been surprised at how easy it has been! I have found myself much more willing to sit down and fold, and then put away the clothes, since there is not a MOUNTAIN of laundry sitting in front of me. I usually let it build up, and then finally fold when everyone is asking me for clean underwear. Ha! But, this week most of the clothes have been washed, folded and put away, and it has taken MAYBE thirty minutes altogether to get it done.
I’m getting ready to make my laundry room a place that is more inviting, and I plan on putting some scripture up to keep my heart attitude in the right place.
I still have quite a way to go, but I am taking baby steps, and am encouraged! Praising the Lord for the grace to change.
Do you have any verses or Biblical perspective to share, that helps you keep your heart in a place of joy through the mundane task of laundry (or changing diapers, etc.)?
