Clean House, Clean Heart

This theme was used in one of our ladies meeting in March of 2012.   I was not able to attend this meeting but had some helpers get pictures for me and give me bit and pieces of what took place at this meeting.

There was a poem shared on house cleaning.  I never got a copy of this, but found this one that was very good.

House Cleaning

Last Week I threw out Worrying, it was getting old and in the way.
It kept me from being me; I couldn’t do things God’s way.

I threw out those Inhibitions;they were just crowding me out.
Made room for my New Growth,got rid of my old dreams and doubts.
I threw out a book on MY PAST (didn’t have time to read it anyway).
Replaced it with New Goals,started reading it today.I threw out hate and bad memories,(remember how I treasured them so)?
Got me a NEW PHILOSOPHY too,threw out the one from long ago.
Brought in some new books too,called I CAN, I WILL, and I MUST.
Threw out I might, I think and I ought. WOW, You should’ve seen the dust.

I ran across an OLD FRIEND, haven’t seen him in a while.
I believe his name is GOD, Yes, I really like His style.
He helped me to do some cleaning and added some things Himself.
Like PRAYER, HOPE and FAITH, Yes, I placed them right on the shelf.

I picked up this special thing and placed it at the front door.
I FOUND IT – it’s called PEACE. Nothing gets me down anymore.
Yes, I’ve got my house looking nice. Looks good around the place.
For things like Worry and Trouble there just isn’t any place.

It’s good to do a little house cleaning, get rid of the old things on the shelf.
It sure makes things brighter; maybe you should TRY IT YOURSELF.
