A Vision for the Mundane

lightning_bolt_1

This is a valuable quote from Elizabeth Prentiss…sure helps keep perspective on the sanctity of prolific laundry, cleaning toothpaste gunk out of the sink, unloading the dishwasher (wait…is this clean?  Did I run this thing?), locating perpetually missing socks, and getting all the toys, popsicle sticks and dust bunnies out from under the couch:

“IF you love Him as I want you to do, you will offer Him the whole use of your day, as you open your eyes to the light of each morning, to be spent in active service or silent suffering, according to His good pleasure. You will not select the most agreeable task, but His task, whatever it may be; you will not disdain humble service, or be ambitious for distinguished service; you will lie, like a straw, on the current of His will, to be swept away and be forgotten, if it pleases Him, or to be caught up by His mighty hand and transformed thereby into a thunderbolt.”
