Help me to find You close to me right here. Surrounded by the dirt, dishes and scattered clothing of my family. Remind me, Holy Spirit, that this is an ideal spot to speak to and hear from You. Thank You that these tasks give me a chance to reflect on the many blessings of my life~ As I pick up their clothing and sort it, I ask you to give each of them what is needed most in their lives. As I wash each dish, kid bowl, or sippy cup, may I remember it's these hearts I cultivate and are precious to me. I try so hard to keep the house "just so," but lead me to remember that it is here in the smudged, disorganized and disheveled part of life that I find you the nearest. Thank you, God, for so much grace in my life! In Jesus' name...
