It's amazing what a holiday and the cheerfulness of warmer weather can do -- look at my pantry! The other half is just as orderly.
I remember some time ago Lea writing of hiding in the pantry for a brief moment of quiet during a party at her house. With mine looking so nice I reckon I'll be happy to take refuge here when we have a 100 or so people from our city church here for lunch tomorrow.
"The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in time of trouble." Psalm 9:9
Whom have we, Lord, in heaven but Thee?
Like ships safe moored on stormy sea,
We hold by Thee, and with Thee there
Find anchorage for faith and prayer.
