Some days a collection of such sterile tedium chores would frustrate me – but somehow, today I feel at peace with my role as a wife, mom, and unpaid Merry Maid. There’s a quiet glory that comes from realizing that I keep and preserve a small paradise for two such wonderful people as those You’ve entrusted to my care. I think about how after the great banquet feasts Jesus describes in His parables, there must be a whole crew of volunteers later who do the dishes and tidy up in the heavenly Hyatt ballroom – and take pride in doing it well.
I do plan to write that great American novel once Colin goes off to college. But today, thank You for my to-do list and the special place it lets me occupy in Your world.
In Jesus’ name. Amen.
