Thursday Thoughts - Thank you for Chores

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.
— 1 Corinthians 10:31

Thursday Thoughts
Picture of a newspaper clip that reads "Thank you for the Chores: Lord Thank you for the sink of dirty dishes; we have plenty of good food to eat. Thank you for the big pile of dirty clothes; we have them to wear. Thank you for these unmade beds; they were all comfortable last night. Thank you for this finger-smudged refriderator that desperately needs defrosting; it has served us faithfully for a long time. Our family is gratefuly for the tall grass that needs mowing; we al enjoy our private yard. Thank you for that slamming door; the children are healthy and able to run and play. Lord, the presence of all the chores awaiting me says that you have richly blessed this family. I shall do them all gratefully.

Growing up I must have seen this prayer 1,000 times. My mom clipped this prayer out of a church newsletter several decades ago. She had it hung up on the side of the refrigerator, where it still hangs today. While this is only a short 8 sentence prayer, it is such a great reminder that even in the chaos and busyness of life, we so are so blessed!

Psalm 118: 24, “This is the day the LORD has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
