It is not really a big deal to me to wash my dishes by hand. Most of the time.
My mother used to do the same thing. I remember how she would prop a hymn book in the kitchen window above the sink and sing her way through doing dishes.
Last Wednesday I was getting ready to wash dishes and remembered my Mom doing this. Then I remembered that the pastor was teaching the book of Ephesians that evening at church. I had wanted to re-read the book before going to church. So I did this.
We're moving on to Philippians this week.
I'm looking forward to washing dishes this summer!
