Makin' it Fun

During family devotions this week I came across an encouraging paragraph from Jerry Bridges in The Practice of Godliness, chapter 9, Joy:  The fruits of joy.  Please let me share this with y'all, as it is so timely and suits my desires so very well!  It perfectly fits my determination to make it fun.

"A second result of joy is that we are strengthened physically, emotionally, spiritually..I have experienced the direct relationship of physical strength to joy in my personal exercise program.  When I am rejoicing in the Lord the strength is there, and the jogging and other exercise go much easier.  If I am discouraged I seem to have no energy at all."

I'm sure we should allow this to carry over into every area of housework.

Pushin' through the pain!
