~Calm atmosphere.
~Be proactice instead of reactive.
~Peace of mind.

~Move photos from shoeboxes to photo albums.
~Designate a small child "Toy Boss" and help him keep toys organized.
~Carefully make choices about outside activities.

OH, I really like this one. Orderliness is so important to peaceful homes. I do need to move all my photos to photo albums. What a job!

1Co 14:40 Let all things be done decently and in order.

That is why it brings peace to your home. It is the way that God intended for us to be.

I have a motto, a place for everything and everything in its place. It works sometimes but not always. I am enjoying reading your blog.

What a wonderful piece on Orderliness. It makes a home and family run smoothly and actually the children do better when they know what is expected and when, just as we do
