The Week’s Chores

A New Week
In the old days there was a main chore to do on each day of the week. I found this the other day, and thought we could all learn something from it. But it seems to me that I need to do all those chores every day.

Monday - Wash Day
Lord, help me wash away all my selfishness and vanity so I may serve you with perfect humility through the week ahead. Ironing

Tuesday - Ironing Day 
Dear Lord, help me iron out all the wrinkles of prejudice I have collected through the years so that I may see the beauty in others.

Wednesday - Mending Day
My God, help me mend my ways so I will not set a bad example for others

Thursday - Cleaning Day
Lord Jesus, help me to dust out all the many faults I have been hiding in the secret corners of my heart.

Friday - Shopping Day
Dear God, give me the grace to shop wisely so I may purchase eternal happiness for myself and all others in need of love.

Saturday - Cooking Day
Help me, my Savior, to brew a big kettle of brotherly love and serve it with clean, sweet bread of human kindness.

Sunday - The Lord's Day
My God, I have prepared my house for you. Please come into my heart so I may spend the day and the rest of my life in your presence.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
I’ve noticed that the only time in life when someone does not want advice is when they are young.
And that’s when they need it the most.
