In All Things...



I can't believe the kitchen is such a mess!  
*Mutter*

Why do I have to clean up everybody else's dishes? *Mutter**Mutter* 

I am tired and ready to chill! 
*Mutter**Mutter**Mutter*

"In all things, give thanks..."  
*StillSmallVoice*

In ALL things? Hmmmmm...

Thank You, Lord for...

* A kitchen to cook in
*A table and counters to spread stuff out on
* Running water to wash pots in
* A dishwasher to put dirty dishes in
*An air-conditioned house to do it all in

Good, girl!  You're getting there!

But most of all, Lord, thank You for...

*6 messy individuals who I get to share life with!!!!

I knew you would figure it out sooner or later!!!

Lord, thank You for the privilege of serving my family.  Thank You for allowing us to live in a place with so many modern conveniences and an ample supply of food.  Thank You for the love that we have for each other and that these 6 people are my greatest ministry and the greatest legacy I will ever leave behind.  Please help me model servant leadership and may it be something that my children realize is near to Your heart because it's near to mine.

And, Lord, thanks for caring enough to remind me to give thanks...

in ALL things!
