Thirty Days of Gratitude in the Home -- Day 29
Most of us have times when our daily chores in the home don't seem very inviting. Yet, if you've ever been sidelined by illness or otherwise prevented from working in your home, you probably wished that you could be up and doing. Without becoming workaholics or perfectionists, we can be thankful for our labors. Here are some great quotes to remind us of how satisfying our work can be.
Let us realize that the privilege to work is a gift, that power to work is blessings, that love of work is success. David O McKay .
Every job is a self-portrait of the person who does it. Autograph your work with excellence. Unknown.
But all duty well done, has its restful peace of heart -- when the tasks are finished and laid down. Conscience whispers, "You were faithful today. You did all that was given to you to do; you did not shirk nor skimp." J. R. Miller
The thought that we have done our duty for another day and have pleased God ought to be like soothing balm to our sore and tired feet at the end of the day. Our Master's commendation takes the sting out of any suffering endured in doing work for him. When we know that Christ in heaven has noticed our toil and has approved it, accepting it as holy service to himself, we are ready to toil another day. J. R. Miller.
