Dirty Dishes

Dishes Dishes Dishes. If you are being health conscience and are making your own food then you know what comes with it.... Dishes. We personally have a problem keeping on top of the dishes at our house. If you find an empty sink in our home that only means we knew you were coming over in advance!

Instead of being down on myself about my short comings, I often think of the this poem when it is time to tackle the pile in the sink.

Thank God for dirty dishes;
They have a tale to tell.
While others may go hungry,
We're eating very well
With home, health, and happiness,
I shouldn't want to fuss;
By the stack of evidence,
God's been very good to us.

Often times our challenges or problems in our lives are really blessings.  Problems at work? But you have a job.  Electric bill to pay? But you have electricity.  Laundry to do? But you have clothes to wear.
The Lord your God turned the curse into a blessing to you, because the Lord your God loves you.  - Deuteronomy 23:5
