It’s early morning, another Monday.
The Monday that begins a busy week, full of people and meals and non-stop hosting.
Today, begins another week of Vacation Bible School and afternoon swimming and bubble blowing to entertain Tanner the dog. There will be hours of horse swinging and neighbors who drop by to play and have a popsicle.
We will walk and feed and water our gift of a dog. There will be lots of slobber and pawprints on clean shirts. We will pick up doggy poop and give out doggy treats for obedience. We will sweat as we love our dog.
I will serve at least 30 sandwiches and 30 bowls of cereal. I will wash hundreds of dishes and more than a hundred pieces of clothing. I will change bed sheets and dust and dust and dust. I may even mop the kitchen. Maybe not.
Our home will be full of people. It will overflow with activity. Noise will raise the roof and dirt will find it’s way into every corner of every room.
There will be countless moments for me to give grace…and to ask for forgiveness. There will be opportunities to extend hospitality and opportunities to serve and serve and serve. Sweet people will walk through my front door or sit on my porch swing and I will have the opportunity to reach down deep and shine my little light.
LIFE will happen here this week. I hope it is ABUNDANTLY more than I can ask or imagine!
