Monday’s Musings — Fun in the Mundane

Carpet stripes.HSA smile pushed my cheeks upward after chore day this past week.

Perfect stripes marked the carpet in the library.

Even a few days later, I still almost don’t want to cross the rug to go grab a book from the shelves.

Chores can be a chore — especially for teenagers — but, I can’t help but wonder if my son was smiling just a bit as he decided to mark his work with perfection and have some whimsical fun while doing his chores.

Chores can be a chore for me, too.
The mundane of the everyday work can get in the way of serving my family.

Priscilla Shirer, in her Gideon study by Lifeway, tells us, “Today’s tasks–even the most mundane of them–are often preparation for tomorrow’s calling.” She goes on to say, “God is teaching you faithfulness, diligence, and integrity through every task.” (page 47)

Perhaps I need to have more fun with my own chores. How about you?
