While we work, we can smile. You can smile because you are right where God wants you, whether it be a "wonderful day" when many things go right, or whether it be a day when many things go wrong...You can smile.
You can smile while you hang up the laundry to dry (or put it in your handy dryer), giving your family clean, fresh clothing to wear.
You can smile as you vacuum the floors of your house, giving your family a nice clean place to rest in.
You can smile as you empty (or load) that great invention of a dishwasher, which gives you much less dishes to wash by hand. Clean plates to eat on are always a blessing!
You can smile as you serve up something delicious for your family to feast on...
Or a dessert for a special treat!
You can smile as you do those tedious tasks...Because it blesses your family!
While we may not always be thanked for the work that we do, and we receive no paycheck...What better reward is there than to bless our family with good things and a good home? What better reward is there than to train up children so that they will know His Name? The Lord in Heaven above sees all that we do, even when others don't notice! We are blessed beyond measure with a glorious appointment of duty!
