Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:4-7

Thank you Deb (and Karen too)

This post is to say thank you to Deb who in four short months of blogging at This Fleeting Moment, has changed my life.

Deb's blog is full of godly wisdom, insightful observations of life, fantastic cleaning and home organisation ideas, great food, amazing craft ideas for kids' groups and fun. And she likes letter writing, teaching and West Wing too.  The perfect blend of serious thought and great humour. 

And in four short months she has changed my life. 

First it was the post about shower cleaning that evoked a response from the lovely Karen about using Viva Kitchen Wipes (are you allowed to mention brand names on a blog?) to clean the shower and voilà, keeping the house clean seems a little easier.  I now grab this lot...
 

...and away I go.  Now don't get me wrong.  Our house isn't spotless.  It still has a very much lived in look and feel to it.  But with all these wipes and a good dusting cloth, those 15 minutes windows are now amazingly efficient, productive and satisfying.

And then there was the dishwasher post where I left a cheeky comment...


...and now our dishwasher sports this snazzy magnet.  Hey presto.  No more sad moments in the kitchen.
 
Thank you so much Deb and thank you Karen too.  Two blogs worth a peek for a realistic, God honouring, fun and helpful view of life.

Thank you so much for your kind words Meredith :)
Now you've made me want to pull the wipes out of the cupboard and start cleaning stuff! It has been a while since I've used them....

And again, thank you both. :-)
