Vintage Homemaking Advice

Dear Friends, 

I would like to share with you a little prayer that my elderly neighbor had hanging up in her kitchen. It goes perfectly with the dish towels that I just found at the antique store (for less than what Walmart charges!).  I hope you enjoy it~


MONDAY: WASHDAY

Help me, my God, to wash away all my selfishness and vanity, 
that I may serve Thee with perfect humility through the week ahead.


TUESDAY: IRONING DAY

Dear Lord, help me to iron out all the wrinkles of prejudice I have
accumulated through the years so that I may see the beauty in others.


WEDNESDAY: MENDING DAY

O God, help me to mend my ways so that I will not set a bad example for others.


THURSDAY: CLEANING DAY

Lord Jesus, help me to reach the dust of all the many faults I
have been hiding in the secret corners of my heart all these years.


FRIDAY: SHOPPING DAY

O God, give me the grace to be a wise and prudent shopper that I may purchase
 eternal happiness for myself and my family and all who are in need of Thy love.

 

SATURDAY: COOKING DAY

Help me, my Saviour, to brew up a huge kettle of brotherly love, 
and serve it with the clean, sweet bread of human kindness.



SUNDAY: THE LORD'S DAY

O God, since I have now prepared my house for Thee, please come into my
heart as my honoured Guest, so that I may spend the day in Thy presence.

Amen.

Love,
