Alternate Title : Till by turning, turning, we come round right.
Housekeeping, turn it into joy.
I’m going to have to recondition myself. A lifetime of alternately despising, ignoring, and struggling with housekeeping will not be turned instantly into a consistently joyous task. It’s going to take some work on my part. Probably a lot of work.
Here’s some thoughts on how to go about doing that–
Teach myself to view it and experience it as joyful work instead of domestic drudgery.
Let each task say to God, “I love You, I love You, I love You.” Dirty dish? I love You. Grime on the toilet seat? I love You. A lifetime of dishes equals a lifetime of love.
