A Homemakers Prayer

So to start out our month of thankfulness I found a prayer that I wrote actually a year or two ago. I remember the night very well, I was standing in our small kitchen starring at the piles of dirty dishes everywhere (and thinking of the laundry and floors I also had to do). I felt so overwhelmed and I was trying to motivate myself to start cleaning, but I was so tired. Then God reminded me that I should be thankful, because if I didn't have all these things to do, then it would probably mean that I didn't have any food to eat, clothes to wear, etc. So I wrote down this prayer...

A Homemakers Prayer

Thank you Jesus, for this sink filled with dirty dishes;
for it means we have food to eat.

Thank you Jesus, for the endless loads of laundry;
for it means I have a family to clothe.

Thank you Jesus, for floors covered with dirt;
for it means we have a house to live in.

Thank you Jesus, for poopy diapers and sticky fingers;
for it means I have a child to love.

Thank you Jesus, for my aching feet at the end of the day;
for it means I have a body to serve you with.

Thank you Jesus, for every opportunity I have in a day 
to humble myself and serve my family;
for it brings me closer to becoming more like You.

I'm not gone...I promise!

It has been way to long since I've posted! I have all these ideas in my head, but sadly my husband's laptop that I always borrow has died...a moment of silence please...(and prayer that we can retrieve the hard drive!)

Anyway, our other laptop (from when I was in school) has a lot of problems, and doesn't always work, so my posts may be a little scattered until my sweet husband is able to get it working in perfect condition again. I also need to get into a routine of getting up earlier in the morning so I have time to blog before the wonderful craziness of the day begins. Funny thing is, our children also love to get up early, so that is what I'm trying to work through right now haha.

Since it is now November, and one of my most favorite holidays is rapidly approaching, I've been thinking a lot about being thankful and content, so I think  November's posts will have a lot to do with thankfulness!
