Thank You, Lord

Thank Thee

Lord, thank thee for this sink of dirty dishes,
We have plenty of food to eat.

Thank thee for this pile of dirty, stinky laundry,
We have plenty of nice clothes to wear

And I would like to thank thee, lord, for those unmade
beds in there, They were so warm and so comfortable
last night. I know that many have no bed.

My thanks to thee, Lord, for this bathroom,
complete with all the splattered mirrors, soggy,
grimy towels and dirty lavatory. They are so convenient.

Thank thee for this finger smudged refrigerator that
needs defrosting so badly, it has served us faithfully
for many years. It is full of cold drinks and enough
leftovers for two or three meals.

Thank thee Lord, for this oven that absolutely must be cleaned today. It has baked so many things over the years.

The whole family is grateful for that tall grass
that needs mowing, The lawn that needs raking;
we all enjoy the yard.

Thank thee, Lord, even for that slamming screen door.
My kids are healthy and able to run and play.

Lord, the presence of all these chores awaiting me
says thou hast richly blessed my family. I shall do
them all cheerfully and I shall do them gratefully.

And all the grateful housewives say??
