Spic'n'Span for Sunday

We are in Kenosha this morning for Sunday morning service, then going into Chicago to visit my brother-in-law, his wife and our little niece. We'll be celebrating birthdays--Papa Rooster, his dad and his brother were all born in August.

Since it's Sunday, it seems like a good day to ask for your prayers, again, that our house would sell soon. The market is not just soft, but dead currently; we haven't had a showing in weeks, though we keep dropping our price. When it sells, we'll know that it is the Lord who has done it, that's for sure!

Trying to keep it perpetually clean and picked up has been a full time job this summer--I don't know how we're going to manage it once we start back with school. And it's getting very discouraging to keep working so hard to leave it picture-perfect when we're gone for the day, as we often are on Sundays--only to have no one come and see it.

One of the kids prayed the other day, "Please help us sell our house soon so we can stop cleaning all the time." (And I say Amen to that!) So if you can also pray for an extra helping of grace in the midst of difficulty--thank you!

Today you're all invited over to Asperger's Kids are Cool, where I've got a post up sharing some of our story with Bantam16.

I know that it's frustrating. I always heard that after a month, a habit is made, so I always hoped that all that tidying up when our house was on the market would become a habit. It never did, LOL.
