When friends inspire

This morning I was thinking about what I was going to write about and decided to make the rounds and visit a few friends. I got some really sweet feedback yesterday about my "being behind" post and when I happened to stop in at Amy's over at I found the tackle it Tuesday project. I was intrigued and went to check it out.
The instructions mention tackling projects and photographing areas of your home that you don't want to show anyone but really need to address.
So today I addressed this.

This was the contents of the junk drawer in my kitchen. It is now empty. I have sorted the numerous objects and found real homes for them. Some like the Chinese Restaurant menu (it closed 3 years ago!) went into the trash can. Others were sorted and put away.
It was an easy project once I got started and now I can honestly say I feel good. I am going to set myself a goal of not having a junk drawer. I am very short of space in my kitchen and I just don't need junk taking up room.
So thanks Amy for inspiring me today!

Here's the verse I am working on this week. I chose this verse because it is one I am going to share with the teenagers I work with. I think it is really fitting for them. And will be easy for them to learn!

Philippians 4:8
Finally brothers and sisters whatever is true,
Whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute,
if there is any excellence and if anything is worthy of praise,
let your mind dwell on these things.

Today may I dwell on what is worthy of praise. May I dwell on God's word and praise his name.

Tackling small projects is always motivating. Today we have to clean Aubry's room, which is NOT a small project and I am dreading it already! :)
