OCD or Just Me?

It all began in the wee hours this morning in my wonderings of OCD or rationalization of "A Clean Home is next to a Godly home"..., which by the way I found is not a bible verse, smile.  Anyhoo, I am right in the middle of reading the good word as I turned the page and I looked up and then onto the floor to see well...., dust bunnies!  

Eeeeeeek! 

My next thought is "What in Sam Hill is that?"...."I just swept last night!" Before I knew it my bible was on the chair and I was getting a broom. "Whew, caught the dust bunnies. Praise the Lord!" I said this out loud as if I am this old church lady....I am not! On with the morning because sweeping was sooooo much more important than anything I would learn from God.....NOT. In the midst, I think of my lifelong friend, Paige as she is reading through the bible and I cannot get through "In the beginning God created..... well, dust bunnies". Then off to work at the office. Whew, thank goodness I am here lest I keep cleaning. Keep in mind I have deadlines to meet and in the middle I look over at my other desk....., again dust bunnies! 

Eeeeeeek!!!!!! 

I say "God, you are funny!!!!"...and then I cannot help myself and moved as if I was moving through  a life or death situation! I stop what should be my focus while I am at work...., straight to the Clorox cleaning stuff and dust items and start cleaning my office as if Snow White in a Disney movie and imaginary music of "Whistle while you work" is playing in the background!  
Is it just me or is the smell of lemon fresh Clorox cleaning wipes a beautiful smell as if sunshine has hit my office? Am I the only one besides my life long friend that loves the smell of Clorox?
 
In this, I think of my Mom and how she is in the middle of Mexico serving people. In that thought I think if I were there would I love those people as much or would I have to take my Clorox wipes in and clean the world down before loving? Knowing me, I would clean first, and say..."Mi lapiz es amarillo" which means, my pencil is yellow, as that is about all the spanish I know, smile..., get calm in that part of my world and then look at these lovely souls with a ".....Anyhoo" look on my face and then try to love these sweet ladies in Mexico as they giggle amongst themselves and say to one another under their breathes in spanish that I might well need meds, smile! My soul needs work, but thankfully I can keep a good sense of humor with myself too! That right there is why my Mom is the one there loving and teaching and guiding as I still have much to learn.  I have to giggle at myself as I am back in my calm clean world at my desk where the soft sent of lemon cleaning products have shown their presence in my world. Back to work for this chick!

I am so glad that I saw your post today off my sisters blog...It was good to laugh today...while I am at work staring now at all the dust that has collected on my desk! How ever, if I clean it up, the window in my office just looks out into the hallway. Oh, how I wish the sun could peer in!

Pretty Blog. Pretty thoughts about your faith and growth. Very pretty music. I love the "Lead Me To The Cross" song. I'll have to have that one myself!

I grew up in Decatur. I love Atlanta, though I live in SC now.
