You chose to come to earth and share our human condition,
and You lived as the Son of a simple humble carpenter.
You knew what it was like to work,
assisting Joseph in the carpenter shop
and helping Mary in the home.
Grant me, I beg You, the grace and humility,
perseverance and fidelity I need to fulfill my daily duties.
Remind me, as often as necessary, that there are no small jobs,
But only small and mistaken attitudes,
and show me how everything I do can bring me closer to Your kingdom.
I offer You all the chores and duties,
labor and efforts,
And successes and failures of this day.
Please make them holy, that they may be a source of glory or You
and a source of grace for me. Amen.
I would love your ideas and suggestions. How do you stay organized and keep a tidy home?
