A HOMEMAKERíS PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING

Thank you, Lord, for this sink full of dirty dishes . . . we have good nutritious food to eat.  Thank you, for this pile of dirty clothes, waiting to be laundered . . . we have nice clothes to wear. Iím thankful for these unmade beds, Lord . . . they give us warmth and comfortable rest each night.

 

Iím thankful, Lord, for this untidy bathroom, complete with splattered mirror, soggy towels, and grimy lavatory . . . itís still very convenient and certainly more than my grandparents enjoyed. Thank you for this finger-smudged refrigerator that needs defrosting so badly . . . it contains enough leftovers to furnish us with another meal.  Thank you for this oven that absolutely must be cleaned today . . . it has baked us many good things over the years.

 

Our whole family is grateful, Lord, for that tall grass that needs mowing . . . we all enjoy our private yard where so many good family times have been shared. Thank you for the slamming back door and the clamor of neighborhood kids . . . my children are healthy and able to run and play.

 

Thank you, Lord, for the very presence of all these chores awaiting my attention . . . they are reminders that You have blessed this family so abundantly. Fill my heart with more love, for You have blessed this family so abundantly. Fill my heart with more love for You and deeper thanksgiving as I confront them cheerfully and gratefully. Amen.
