In Chapter 2 of The Hidden Art of Homemaking talks about the "art" that you may find in your everyday life. I like the following statement "All art involves conscious discipline.". In order to get much done I have to consciously make an effort to do the things I know I need to do first. So the above statement makes complete sense to me. I have also found that when I am making time to do certain things it seems like they take not much time at all. This chapter also talks about priorities. I like that it gives permission to not feel guilty when you accomplish a needed task to the neglect of another task when you need to, with the knowledge that you will still complete the neglected task.
What can I do today to show appreciation to my Creator for creating me His image by being aware of the beauty He has created around me? I can focus on making sure my priorities are in the right order and thank him for the creativity he has given me to think and decide what should be a priority. I can ask Him for guidance that I would focus on God's will instead of my will.
What can you do today to show appreciation to God our creator?
