We are having a gospel meeting at our church this week (John Isaac Edwards is our speaker, and he is doing a fantastic job!), and as usual, I signed up to feed the preacher one night. You know what that means......clean the house!
Not that the preacher is coming over to inspect the house, but hosting the visiting preacher in my home for a meal twice a year is an excuse for me to do some deep and thorough cleaning of my house. We spent most of the day Monday and a little bit of yesterday doing just that. We cleaned the entire house from top to bottom. It is not often that my whole house is all clean in one day! I also trimmed the overgrown shrubs, Clay and Jimmy mowed the yard, and we all pitched in to scrub, scrub, scrub! And cook. While Clay was sweeping out the garage, he asked me, "Is the preacher really going to look at our garage?" Ha! I told him that actually the preacher would probably not even leave the den/kitchen area, but it made me feel better to know that the house was clean!
Well, John came for dinner last night, and he did not look at the garage. But, we had an enjoyable meal, and we all had a good time getting to know him better. And I am so glad that my house is clean!
