Working for the Lord

What a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! I am overwhelmed with the blessings in my life. We got away to nearby Santa Fe, rode the train, played in the was great. We have some family in from Houston for a few more days and sometimes I get overwhelmed at cooking and keeping everyone happy. This prompted a verse to come to mind.

"Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men." Colossians 3:23

When you think about the verse, it's kind of hard to not work with a smile on your face and warmth in your heart. Working at cooking meals, making people feel at home while they are away from theirs, working at our daily jobs that are not in ministry.

Everything we do should glorify God. That is what oozing is all about. You can ooze the Holy Spirit while you are working on quarterly reports, preparing a mailing and making phone calls.

It's a challenge. Can you take this verse to heart this week? What will be your biggest challenge?

Today I Am Thankful For:

1. pecans
2. the possibility of snow
3. rocking chairs
4. hand sanitizer
5. groomed dogs

What wonderful picture of your family. I understand the feelings of being overwhelmed. I live in a place where there is too much snow. So you are grateful for the snow. In all things give thanks.
