Stone Soup for Five: Blessing to Serve

Blessing to Serve

"When Christ is at the center, when dishes, laundry, work is my song of thanks to Him, joy rains." -Ann Voskamp



So with that quote in mind, I'll sing a song of thanks to Him today as I wash and clean up the dishes... 
.
.
.
.
.
rinse and shine the cast iron...
.
.
.
.
.
wash, dry, fold and put away laundry... again.
.
.
.
.
.
As I ignore the piled higher and higher homeschool planning for next year (but am still praying over)
.
.
.
.
.
 As I thank the Lord for a job that I love, and work coming in
.
.
.
.
.
As I prepare 3 meals today for my family
.
.
.
.
.
As I serve the cat.  Wait... strike that.  ;o)
.
.
.
.
.
As I clean the smudgy mirrors...
.
.
.
.
.
wipe counters, put away messes...
.
.
.
.
.
As I work at maintaining a beautiful yard (and squirrel ravaged garden) we've been blessed with

.
.
.
.
.

And I'll serve him as I work through my list of mundane daily things I must get done.  
In all of this there is joy.
Joy for a bright new day.
Joy for health to do all the things.
Joy for the beauty all around that my eyes rarely see.

  1. I like your style of a daily list. Here's a schedule I TRY to keep!
