I have always hated doing laundry. I've envied those women who find such fulfillment in washing, drying, folding, and putting away laundry. I have tried to like it with no success.....but within the last week my attitude has changed.
Today I am catching up on my laundry with such a different attitude. Last week my Bible study group was talking about how we can continue to "glorify God in the mundane things we do" (example: household chores). There were 2 things that changed my heart......
1. When I have piles of laundry to do, I can thank Jesus for healthy children that are in OUR HOME instead of making their home in a hospital room.
2. Everytime I bring dirty laundry to the washing machine, it's symbolic of how we bring our dirty lives to Jesus to be cleaned. What an amazing thing to be reminded of EVERYTIME I do laundry. I might even start doing some everyday. What a concept!
