It was not a particularly challenging day, but it was a busy day filled with one thing right after the another. A hundred small details to think about and to decide about.
One task done. Another one waiting.
One decision made. Another decision took its place.
After a day of that I headed home and left work and headed home with a slight headache.
For me, headaches are one sign my life is out of balance.
I walked into our house and the first thing I saw were the dishes that we had not done the night before.
One more thing!
So before starting dinner, I started washing the dishes.
Just me and the warm water and the pots and pans.
I remembered a book I read years ago The Practice of the Presence of God.
Brother Lawrence concentrated on finding something of God in the most ordinary moments of life. Like washing dishes.
For those few moments, I tried to do the same.
