Thank You for Washing Machines

Dear God,

Thank you for washing machines.

I read a TO DO list one time that was written by a pioneer woman from the 1800's. It looked something like this:

Monday: Laundry
Tuesday: Can Vegetables
Wednesday: Sew and Mend
Thursday: Trade in Town
Friday: Make Pies
Saturday: Garden
Sunday: Church/Rest

These women spent all day on one task sometimes. Did they talk to You when they did that? Did they sing and hum made up songs? My grandma wrote a song about a goat one time. I wonder if that came on one of her "wash" days.

One day=One task

You know what? That my not be so bad of an idea. BUT, thank you for the progression of washing clothes with an electric washing machine that does it all....


{Daily Scripture Reading: Proverbs 31:10-31
She sets about her work vigorously;
    her arms are strong for her tasks.

Proverbs 31:17
