Me too! "Giving thanks for the daily mess"

it really is a gift...  if I would just unwrap it with a thankful heart.

I pick up the water gun, wooden sword, deck of 49 cards {its number dwindling daily} for the ##th {double-digit, lost count} time and I actually grinned.

They are here.   They are still here.   I still have opportunity in ways that I will not have in years love on them.  Godbit them. I am still learning, growing, progressing and still have time.  No mess means no junior feet in my house {maybe junior paws, but no junior feet.}  So I grin as I pick it up, yet again.

And realize the gift unwrapped. It IS all grace! 

" I become the gift to God and to others, because this work is the public God serving, the daily liturgy of thanks..." I say yes...keep yes on my lips.. keep thanks on my lips!

Still learning from Ann. :) Being reminded and refreshed.

"I give happy thanks for the daily mess with a smile a mile wide, because this is again my chance to wholeheartedly serve God, to do full-bodied eucharisteo with the hands and the heart and the lips." Ann
