my barn aint so clean

Proverbs 14:4 (ESV)

Where there are no oxen the manger is clean, 
but from the strength of an ox comes an abundant harvest. 

I read this today.  I thought - "this must be a very profound proverb.  surely we're not really talking about oxen".  So I thought about it, and prayed about it a little and here's what God told me.  The manger is my house, and the oxen are my family/our friends/the people that we enjoy that come to our house.  So if I didn't have a little girl, or a busy husband, or high school kids around the house, it would be all clean.  However, I am thankful to have all those people around, thus will be thankful for a cluttered, messy house.  Amen.
