Lord, Thank You…

Morning Story and Dilbert

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.

And all God’s people say….Amen!

  1. A great way to look at things that would other say “to much work to be done”. Happy cleaning!!! Lol. 🙂

  2. The Gospel of Barney said:

    Amen!

  3. I’m going to print this and put it above the sink filled with dirty dishes. 🙂

  4. Many great things to be thankful for! Thanks for the message!

  5. Amen! That is certainly an “Attitude of Gratitude” and it sure does turn things around. Thanks so much for sharing.

    Be a Blessing!

  6. Well, I have done some catching up on your blog today. On this post, I must, however, stop and start cleaning–and being thankful. 🙂
