Kitchen Wives

Well said, as usual, Rebecca.

I recommend reading Kitchen Wives in order:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want, (whether up to my elbows in dirty dishes or not?) I can do everything through him who gives me strength. from Philippians 4

A great link, tulipgirl. Thank you. I like your re-contextualising of the Philippians verse too. Washing up can be so mundane. I used to pretend I was washing up to get ready for serving Jesus as if he was coming to dinner. It was supposed to remind me to work, even at the mundane tasks, as if serving God not men. I wanted my service to my family to bring honour to God; to be part of my worship to Him. I'm not sure if my pretending was the right thing to do...I mentioned it a bible study one night and received looks as if I was about to be declared insane. Sigh. It helped get through the pile of dirty dishes though. I admire your contentment.
