Weekly Taks For the Inside and Outside

I have a little handmade hanging that I keep in my kitchen that reminds me of tasks done through the week to keep my home and my heart singing! 

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

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

Wednesday Mending Day
O 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
O 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
O 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.


When the daily routines of life are applied first to our hearts, it makes our homes and lives sing a song that glorifies the Lord!
