Chris has been home for two weeks, and since we can't go anywhere...he has been keeping himself busy. In between wrapping my ankle and helping me get my air cast on and off, he has built me an outdoor shelf for drying pots, fixed a lot of things that needed fixing and cleaned my studio!
Oh the joys of a cleaned up studio! It's like a fresh canvas, a new start, and it clears my mind. The thing about walking into a clean work area is that it is full of possibilities instead of hindrances. All your tools are clean and accounted for. Everything is in it's right place. When I walk in, I can get started on my daily work.
I'm the kind of person who has to clean the kitchen before I make a mess. If there are pots and pans and dirty dishes cluttering up the counters, I can't cook. It's the same in my studio. I love neatly lined up jars, tools sitting in bins, clean work tables. Order.
God is orderly. He is not a God of chaos. He tells us that all things should be done decently and in good order. Order brings a sense of calm. I need to do this to my house too.
