Monday ~ Wash Day
Lord help me was wash away all my selfishness and vanity, so that I may serve you for the week ahead.
Tuesday ~ ironing Day
Dear Lord, help me to wash out the wrinkles of prejudice that I have collected through the years so that I might see beauty in others.
Wednesday ~ Mending Day
O God, help me mend my ways so I will not set a bad example for others.
Thursday ~ Cleaning Day
Lord Jesus, help me to dust out the many faults I have been hiding in the secret corners of my heart.
Friday ~ Shopping Day
O, God, give me the grace to shop wisely so that I may bless my family with contentment and happiness and all others in need of love.
Saturday ~ Cooking Day
Help me, my Savior, to brew a big kettle of brotherly love and serve it with clean, sweet bread of human kindness.
As I was typing this, I noticed there wasn't a Sunday. Since Sunday is historically and typically a day of rest from the work of the week, its "chore" should be to take your family and yourself to church to worship the Lord.
Thankful for ~
reminders of the cleaning we have to do in our lives
the sanctuary of our homes from everyday trials in the world
the fact we are all a "work in progress", no one "has arrived"
that kindness, selflessness, contentment, love and happiness are worthy goals
