Are you a perfectionist? Do you want everything to be just the way you like it? What happens when it’s not? Do you get frustrated? Angry? Do you make everyone else’s life miserable? The famous saying, “If mamma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy” has real meaning, doesn’t it? Sometimes keeping the house spick-and-span can be nearly impossible with kids. If your spouse is a clean freak and you’re not, this can cause a contentious relationship. What do you do? First, don’t take it out on the kids. While they do make messes, THEY’RE KIDS. Don’t fight in front of them, either. And don’t discuss your spouse’s messy tendencies. Believe it or not, the Bible does talk about a messy house. Find the verses below.
