Words of Me project week 3...yep, as usual I'm behind, but hopefully by next weekend I will be caught up with this project and a few other things I'm working on. I think this scripture from Isaiah is's not word for word, but summed up my thoughts on order. I also wish I was ultra organized, ya know, a place for everything, and everything in it's place, but I kinda just half way do everything. I don't know what that says about me, but I try. I feel like my life is pretty orderly, I don't do chaos well, or messes, a little clutter here and there won't throw me over the top, but if it says cluttered for too long, then I do start to freak out a little. Anyway, I guess as long as I'm trying, I won't get too down on my not so perfect life. I think perfect would be a little boring..not to mention unrealistic, plus a little chaos and mess can really throw some interest into life. So..whatever life is, I say BRING IT!! As long as it's orderly chaos! ;)

A few other quotes on order that I really liked:

"Order & simplification are the first steps toward the mastery of a subject." Thomas Mann

"Order is Heaven's first law." Alexander Pope

"Good order is the foundation of all good things." Edmund Burke

"Chaos often breeds life, when order breeds habit." Henry Brooks Adams


  1. Wonderful thoughts on ORDER, Sharla! We sound very similar here...I am ok with a bit of chaos but there is a point I go Enough!

    Love that you are playing along with the Challenge:)

  2. Great layout! I don't do to well with chaos either. Unfortunately. I have a little more than I would like at the moment. Hopefully, the extended holiday break I have coming up will do me some good.

  3. love this layout! i love circles on a layout! i too hate chaos. it seems like this is the season for chaos though.

  4. This looks great! I'm what I like to call selectively organized! Lol!

  5. love the words of me idea...and love the topic!

  6. Order. A great word. I can stand the mess and chaos for a while, but always want to bring things back to some semblance of order.

  7. Sharla, I can ditto everything you wrote in this post, as you did in my post.
    Are we long lost sisters LOL.
