so many gifts it's hard to count

141.  toothpaste and poop disasters- opportunities to "pray the work"
142.  a new idea
143.  an awesome painting with a barter
144.  dinner with in-laws feeling more like a party than just dinner
145. orange light of dusk

"... when Christ is at the center, when dishes, laundry, work, is my song of thanks to Him, joy rains.  Passionately serving Christ alone makes us the loving servant to all.  When the eyes of the heart focus on God, and the hands on always washing the feet of Jesus alone- the bones, they sing joy, and the work returns to its purest state: eucharisteo.  The work becomes worship, a liturgy of thankfulness.  'The work we do is only our love for Jesus in action,' writes Mother Theresa. 'If we pray the work... if we do it to Jesus, if we do it for Jesus, if we do it with Jesus... that's what makes us content.'"  A. Voskamp
