Tomorrow I leave for Atlanta to perform the wedding of the youth pastor from our former church in Covington. The wife and I kids went ahead to visit family and friends, meaning that I’ve been in charge of the house for almost two weeks. I’ve concluded that I’m a minimalist at heart — I’ve used only two coffee cups, two plates, and the same fork and spoon for two weeks. Don’t get me wrong, I wash them in between uses. Most of the time (just kidding).
But here’s the deal: our launch team for LifePoint uses our house for our Sunday night gatherings. That means I need to get everything in order (i.e., clean) before leaving in the morning. And who knows what kinds of messes our pesky cats will leave in my absence!
