Focus

"Everything has to change in time and this place in which I am working is no different," thought Melinda.

"What next?" Now it is to write on words crafted from combinations, sort of like vegetable soup letters; "Yea! let's see what dumps out!"

Today is a truly interesting word and I will have to think long to relate it to life and living, maybe.

All around me, everywhere, never from my seeing eyes, never from my care, is what? A mess? Yes, I guess. Hey, I do know about life in that condition! I am more than qualified a tale to tell.

My bed room: yes, it truly is everywhere a mess. It is not that I love being sloppy, oh no! I am Mizz Neato. "A place for everything and everything in its place," that is my motto.

I am suffering from a time and space dysfunction. I have neither time nor space to place the mess that I possess.

I do know that there are for me remedies, such as getting rid of things I do not use, but get a clue, that only takes care of the space problem while the time consideration is a serious frustration!

But perhaps now that I am newly unemployed I will find the time to apply to being who I am on the inside, clean and specifically organized.

In childhood I often heard that, "Cleanliness is next to Godliness." In the Scriptures I don't see a verse that says that to me, but I can reason that it must be so, for God is orderly, and this I know.

God brought order out of chaos when this world He made, a bigger job than my bedroom! I'll bet He can give me wisdom to put some order in the O-S room soon.

I would like to share that this is my repair, when on my bed I lie it keeps me from despair:

When my room is a mess, a total disgrace, I lie on my back and not on my face. Up at the ceiling I intently stare, 'cause everything's always in place up there.

Sometimes it is all in where you're looking that solace can be found.

Oh I really liked this! It was creative, well written and absolutely loved the ending! It wrapped up with a significant message and one that I'll use in the future if that's okay!

God bless~

This has a poetic feel to it. At times some of the rhymes were spot on. I struggled a bit in the beginning with trying to figure out just what message you were portraying, Try to get a good proofreader to help you catch little thing like bedroom being one word. You have a delightful sense of humor. Nice job.
