I have lots to tell you. About the most wonderful tea party. About the joy of having all the kids home. About the Studio 8 reveal. But this morning, I have girls to teach, laundry to do, bills to pay, a quilt to sew, piano lessons to start (the girls, not me), and dinner to cook. So, I’ll share a prayer with you that will help us all get this week off to a great start. Stop by later this week for all the other stuff! Happy Monday!
Heavenly Father, Creator of heaven and earth, it is out of Your love and wisdom that You gave me work to do and fitted me in body and mind to do this work. And yet my sinful will too often dreads the workday and casts about for other things to do. But You, O God, have called me to this work. Forgive me my sin. Strengthen me by Your Spirit that I may see that my vocation is a field of Your service to my family and my neighbor. Give me joy in my vocation, and make me glad and grateful for the strength to serve You; through Jesus Christ, Your beloved Son. Amen.
