I have been struggling with finding joy and giving thanks as I go through my daily routine. The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful husband, amazing little girl, and beautiful home! As I go through my daily routine of caring for Jack, Maggie, and the house, it is easy to loose sight of my calling as a wife and mom....to serve the Lord joyfully! He has given me SO MUCH when I deserve NOTHING! His grace and mercy pour out and cover me!
My prayer is the Lord will give me a joyful heart and heart of thanksgiving as I go through my daily chores of folding the same clothes, washing the same dishes, wiping down the same highchair, vacuuming the same floor, changing the same little bottom, cleaning the same house, and cooking the same meals. Praise God that I am able to do these things!
Well, I am starting to get a little help from Maggie. On Mondays we try to do all of the laundry (we have to do a few more loads through out the week, but it helps to knock out the bulk of it).She really likes to clean the cabinet knobs...
...she uses all means necessary:)
She makes sure all of the trash is out of the trash basket.
She is very into details...
and loves to wipe down the oven (with her fingers:).
Maggie's least favorite thing to do."Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God...I am glad and rejoice with you all. So you to should be glad and rejoice with me." Philippians 2:12-18
