Neat Freaks

I have read several articles lately on home management that imply that "messes" are fun and flexible, and neat people are "neat freaks". Humm--is orderliness and discipline freaky? It almost seems that messiness is considered to be a virtue, and neatness is a character flaw these days. However I believe we reflect the Creator in our creatureliness best by doing things "decently and in order". Perhaps that is why people are always "needing" to get away to a retreat so often. A home that is disheveled and messy does not give us a peaceful spirit, or make hospitality spontaneous. Orderly surroundings reflect an orderly spirit. Yes, I work at keeping our home neat and inviting, but I do not think that is freaky, do you?
