Day 25 – Thankful for dishes

I guess everybody has chores that they prefer to do or not do. My least favorite chore is doing the dishes; I think it’s because of multiple factors, like my back hurting when I stand for too long with poor posture, my hands getting chapped, and the dreaded floaties. 😜

I do better just washing a few dishes at a time or wearing vinyl gloves. But I admit that I usually don’t have a great attitude about dishes. Sorry, Lord.

So, sometimes I give myself a pep talk. Like, can you imagine eating with no dishes all the time? What would it be like to have no dishes? Some of my favorite foods are soups and sauces, and those take pans for cooking and plates or bowls and utensils for eating.

I would feel guilty using disposable dishes all the time; I usually reserve those for bonfires, picnics, travel, or emergencies such as boil orders or illness.

So, today I am thankful for my dishes, for even though they must be washed, they are a gift from God for which I am grateful.

Everything you do or say should be done Β·to obey [or as a representative of; Lβ€―in the name of] the Lord Jesus. And in all you do, give thanks to God the Father through Jesus.

Colossians 3:17 EXB

Will you look at that!

“In ALL you do give thanks to God!”

I guess I haven’t been representing Jesus very well, and it looks like I have some repenting to do!

What about you? Do you have a job that you have a hard time being thankful for? Can you find something about it to be thankful for?

Let’s start working on that today, shall we?

  1. I’m glad that you were able to find joy in something you dont like to do. Praising God during those times is simple way to grow closer to him and becoming more Christ like.

  2. Doing dishes is my least favorite chore as well, but with my fatigue, I am thankful when I have the energy to tackle that specific chore! Actually, I am thankful when I am able to tackle anything, so I guess having fatigue has truly been a blessing because it causes me to appreciate chores. He works in some pretty wonderful ways. We don’t always enjoy it, or get it at the time, but He can help us to be more thankful! 😊 ❀
