The above picture is from the British series Keeping up Appearances. It is a funny series about an unusual housewife.
I just wanted a picture for this post ;-). I liked the following quote found in a local religious newspaper:
She encouraged the sisters to look for holiness in every facet of their work, whether it is the central task of their ministry or simply the daily routine of housework, and to find the 'beautiful humility' that comes through service.
"When you work mindfully, you realize that whatever you do, it is all sacred,' she said. "If you are just trying to get things done, you miss the sacredness of the act itself. Learning to work with joy is a practice." [Sister Macrina Wiederkehr]
I love that thought. It is something for me to actively work towards in my life.
