I have freely confessed to being slightly OCD--OK--more than slightly---I like--NO LOVE--order in my life.  Things have a place and all things need to be in their place.  That is why God gave me grandchildren---to help de-sensitize my need for order.  When the sweet grands come for a visit--well things end up in a mess-
Sort of like the mess this picture is because I canNOT figure out why it will not stay rotated.

We line things up--have it all planned out--and BAM--Life throws us a curve and we are in a mess---Life is MESSY!  If you want order---get another life--it does not work here!

I would have NEVER dreamed I would be in Fort Worth TX--about to turn 65--alone--do not know anyone--living in an old house---by the university where they party hardy--life is just a HUGE MESS compared to what I thought it would be.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT---I need to get over it--and deal with the mess in front of me and just keep moving forward---what choice do I have--for that matter what choice do any of us have when life turns messy?  Do your best to clean up the mess---Look to the only one who is NOT messy--and move forward.

Our lives are messy--we serve a God who is in the business of cleaning up our messes---we all need a good cleansing!

"If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrightenousness."
I John 1:9
