Three D- The Daily Domestic Dispatch
Time is a precious commodity. We are all given the same amount of time in a day, and we are responsible for how we spend it. To keep life organized so there is room for what God may redirect, begin to look at your year now. Use a paper calendar, or a Microsoft Outlook Calendar, or any other paper or software of your choosing. Choosing your priorities now will help make it easier to accept or decline future invitations.
Begin to mark off all the important dates throughout the year for you and your family. I keep a schedule down to the hour even while at home so I can track my time spent, and know what is available for the future. After the yearly look is done, I refine with monthly to weekly to hourly.
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: Ecclesiastes 3:1
If things aren’t going according to your schedule…not to worry, for God makes all things beautiful in HIS time!
Time to scrub the kitchen cabinet doors and do a few loads of laundry today as my inside schedule was deeply interrupted by snow that had to be shoveled outside.
Take time to smell the roses…if they are blooming in your area. Look on the bright side…I’m sure there are some roses in the local market if you can get there.
Make time to call that special someone today.

Speaking the truth in Love…
Religious expression is still a freedom we enjoy in this country of ours. If we choose to say nothing when those rights are whittled away we will pay for it when our own liberty is taken away.
Dispatch for the day…
Stand up for the truth!
Know what truth is, and share it with others.
Immerse yourself and your family in the word of God so that truth will be shared from generation to generation.
Remember the old adage; Keep the newspaper in one hand and the Bible in the other to
filter the news through the eye of truth contained in God’s Word.
Continue to speak the truth in love, no matter how you are treated, for we are to seek the approval of God, not of man.
Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth? Galatians 4:16
Well, am I?
The sun streams in the window this cold January morning, after a dark and snowy trend. The sunlight illuminates the dust on the wooden floors that we put in the home a few years ago. Off to sweep them soon, then clean with a solution of organic cleaner...
Shake in the spray bottle, spray in small sections on the floor and scrub with a long floor push type cleaner
Let dry, and buff with a clean dry push type cleaner
As vinegar to the teeth,
and as smoke to the eyes,
so is the sluggard to them that send him.
Organizing comes to mind when the New Year comes to mind. The year ahead is always filled with plans, and when my surroundings and schedule are organized I can enjoy the duties at hand. Little things can sometimes irritate us when our plans are interrupted, but if we look at these moments as ways for God to direct our steps it is easier to be more flexible. For you just never know when you might meet an angel in disguise. Be on the look out for those in need who cross your path.
