"Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; You have
made my lot secure.  the boundary lines have fallen for me in
pleasant places; surely i have a delightful inheritance!"
psalm 16:5,6

Nana's right...the messes stay the same, the toys just look different.

Wow, your house looks like mine with all of that music equipment! I used to think that their little toys cluttered up the house. Now, I have keyboards, guitars, mics and stands, and amps all over the place. But the great thing about that is the house full of music that comes along with those things. Carla

Sandra said...

For those of us without children, that clutter looks very nice indeed.

Mmm said...

Cozy indeed.

Susan B said...

You're so right....the clutter changes, but it is always there. Wouldn't have it any other way! :)

Sonja said...

Aubrey said...

I will think of this the next time I find a lone Polly Pocket shoe in my refrigerator...or trip over the line-up of stuffed animals in my living room floor...or my bare foot steps into a small pile of cracker crumbs... :)

Those laptops all over the kitchen table made me laugh out loud. My oh my how things have changed!

Zuzu said...

Love the chaos of company! Joyful!
Enjoy your weekend, Lea!

I asked our music minister's wife if it would get any easier when our 4 boys got older (mine are 1.5, 4, 6 and 8...her boys are all in junior high and high school). She tossed her head back and laughed, "No, it changes...but it doesn't get easier. But, they do get big enough to clean their own bathroom!" Yeehaw, for that, at the very least!

Gloria said...

I hear you on this one!!! When the kids were little, their clutter was atleast a little smaller...:)
Hey, you gotta love them! Well, you don't gotta....you wanna, and JUST DO love them!!
Enjoy your weekend!
Happy pretty Friday...:)

Mountain Mama said...

Hilarious!
Welcome home kiddos!!

Dawn said...

Lea, The scripture reference to your portion and your "cup" is spot on, because the tea sets being relegated to the floor behind your table to make for ducklings - uugh, I mean keyboards - made me laugh.

Picking up after teens is infinately more complicated than picking up after our toddlers, isn't it.

Loved this post.
Dawn

Hi. The mess in your house sure looks very expensive.:-) I guess, with children, a home can never be without messes. I love the bible verses you put in all your posts. Thanks for sharing.:-)

Brenda said...

Bonjour Lea,
thank you for sharing such a beautiful verse!
I can completely understand about the clutter.. music instruments, electronics, books and toys (dogs toys too!); however, I wouldn't have it any other way =)
Wishing you a lovely weekend!
xoxo, B
