      I need the reminder myself at times. 😉

  1. Yes. oh my yes. I love you so much…geekin’ out girl! Thanks for this healthy reminder! I had one of these moments this past Monday when my husband had some men over for a small prayer group. I cleaned house but no longer do I fuss about those things such as the haze of mildew I can’t keep off the bathroom wall because the roof has been leaking ….like forever. Yeah. Thanks.

      Ha! i hear you. 🙂 And if my house was perfect all the time, I would miss these awesome blessings like, my friends showing up earlier (before I arrived home from running errands) and setting right into cleaning– washing all my dishes, doing laundry and scrubbing down my bathroom.

      Now THEY know how to wash feet. 😉

  2. I look so forward to reading your posts! You always give me a new way to look at “things”. I especially liked your experience with the little boy and the maple syrup……. Thank You!

      So glad, Beth. 🙂

  3. Thanks, Natasha, I now feel a little better about my floors :). I cringe to think my neglect may not be grace related though–I just dislike scrubbing floors.

    You always have such a wonderful way of illustrating surrendering in the dailiness of life. Thanks for the inspiration to keep laying it all down–including my floors.

    1. Natasha Metzler says:

      Oh, trust me– mine is not always grace related either! 🙂 But I do think that the ability to overlook dirt can be a gift at times. 😉

    Oh I loved this! It is so sweet! Especially the part about “washing feet.”

  5. Love this 🙂 Making me think since I basically force everyone to take shoes off here. I have carpet though so not sure how to scrub those bad boys down but oh I love to think deeply about the choices/rules I make. Thanks for the challenge to pay attention to God in things that sometimes seem so “simple”. Thanks 😀

      Oh, carpet makes a difference! 😉
      It is definitely a continual journey to be surrendering- making sure we are living grace and not just our personal agendas.

  6. Absolutely glorious freedom girl! Thank you for sharing your story… ~Blessings from Maine, Amy

    Oh how I have envied other’s clean floors & kitchens… thank you for this beautiful post to help me keep priorities straight.

    1. Natasha Metzler says:

      It’s a daily battle isn’t it?

  8. You are so mature. Maybe, just maybe when I grow up………

    1. Natasha Metzler says:

      Oh, Norma- I just love you.

  9. Thank you so much for this image this morning! I fall so short when it comes to “washing feet.” Your floors help me see where I too might serve others in tangible ways. Hugs!

      So glad, Lauren.

      p.s. been thinking and praying for you lately. {hugs}

  10. Your writing is a gift, Natasha. Wonderful.

    Homes were made to be lived in, a place to welcome others in God’s grace. Your home isn’t the only one with muddy floors covered by grace.

    1. Natasha Metzler says:

      Thanks, Erin.
      May your home always be grace-filled.

    Thank you for this reminder to strive most for an “atmosphere of grace and washing others feet.” Beautiful.

    1. Natasha Metzler says:

      Yes. An atmosphere of grace. That is exactly it.

  12. Well put. Well done. Eternal priorities…I love that! As usual, great reminders of what is really important! 🙂

      Thanks, Peggy!

  13. That’s awesome. 🙂 Reminds me of this quote: “Love is the thing that enables a woman to sing while she mops up the floor after her husband has walked across it in his barn boots.”

    1. Natasha Metzler says:

      Oh, love that quote! 🙂

      p.s. I have limited internet right now but I wanted to let you know that I got your beautiful email. I will be writing back soon. xxooxx
