Joy in dishes…

I have always struggled with my “wandering mind”.  Left in silence as I perform mundane tasks, it often wanders to criticizing others or allowing my self-righteousness to seep in.  I heard a sermon once about filling our minds with Jesus.  Matthew 12:34 says that out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks.  I want that to be the same with my thought life!  So, while I used to look at sinkfulls of dishes as a drag and a reason for being cranky, I now use the time to memorize hymns or Scripture.  Truly makes this task a delight now!  🙂  Thought I’d share what I’m memorizing this week.  (I’m a slow memorizer, so it may be awhile for this one…)

Here’s the same song again – added it to our shower – another great place to focus on my memorizing, lol!  (My boys all like to make fun of me for this one…)  🙂

Back to the kitchen now – Thank You, Lord, for food to eat, dishes to eat off of, and time & hands to wash them.  AMEN  🙂

What do you do to keep your mind from wandering away from Jesus?
