Daily duties are daily joys, becuase
they are something which God
gives us to offer until Him, to do
our very best, in acknowledgment
of His love.
- Edward Bouverie Pusey -
I fail at this one all the time, grudgingly dusting the house, complaining about dishes left in the sink, ("why can't my family do their own dishes") seeing the chores as tedious activities at the end of a busy day ("wouldn't it be nicer to put my feet up"). This week I am going to focus on the joys of daily duty rather than finding reasons to grumble. I will be a joyful mother in all I do.
He maketh the barren woman to keep house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise ye the LORD. (Psalms 113:9)
Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice , ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.(Psalms 21:1)
