Transparency is needed.
I think I hide behind my masks pretending everything is okay because I think everyone else has it all together.
But the truth is: I don’t have all together.
And even more freeing: I’m pretty sure no one else has it all together either.
So here’s a little transparency this morning to make you feel like you’re not the only one with a messy heart or room.
This is the state of my living room 94% of the time (5% it’s probably worse and the other 1% the toys might end up in the bins)
This is the state of my family room 92% of the time (the other 8% of the time I don’t have a finished quilt lying out waiting for me to purchase batting because the piece I have isn’t nearly big enough)
This is the state of my sewing area 99.8% of the time.
As a bonus: I had to search the house for my camera to take these shots. I hid it from the twins on top of the couch and the couch ate it.
One final confession: without transparency and humility before the throne of grace, 100% of the time my messy heart would be so much worse than any area of my home.
