LORD, I THANK YOU

Lord, thank you for this sink of dirty dishes. We have plenty of food to
eat.

Thank you for this pile of dirty, stinky laundry. We have plenty of nice
clothes to wear.

And I would like to thank you, Lord, for those unmade beds. They were so
warm and comfortable last night. I know that many have no bed.

My thanks to you, Lord, for this bathroom, complete with all the
splattered
mirrors, soggy, grimy towels and dirty lavatory, they are so convenient.

Thank you for this finger-smudged refrigerator that needs defrosting so
badly. It has served us faithfully for many years. It is full of cold
drinks and enough leftovers for two or three meals.

Thank you, Lord, for this oven that absolutely must be cleaned today. It
has
baked so many things over the years.

The whole family is grateful for that tall grass that needs mowing, the
lawn
that needs raking; we all enjoy the yard.

Thank you, Lord, even for that slamming screen door. My kids are healthy
and able to run and play.

Lord, the presence of all these chores awaiting me says You have richly
blessed my family. I shall do them cheerfully and I shall do them
gratefully.
