Organization starts not with the closets, but with your attitude.

Organization does not look like Pinterest images or Martha Stewart spreads. It simply means you are prepared for life – and 80% of preparedness is mental.

No matter how much we get organized, life will always be outside our control. But our response to life – our attitude – is fully under our control.

We don’t have to be trapped by the whims of our moods. We can choose our attitudes, repent of our whining, and cheer up – because God gives us the grace and strength to do so.
