We all have the power to ‘create’. Some create with a paintbrush, with yarn, wood, or words. Housekeeping can be known as “creating neatness”. How we view our creative & daily tasks affects how we go about them. “Whatever your task, work heartily, as serving the Lord and not men,” Colossians 3:23 says.
What if we would go about those things we do – work or recreation – with a degree of intention, not just getting them done & moving on? Mindfulness is paying attention to what’s happening in the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, without judgment.
Quite the opposite of just going through the motions mindlessly or the mind-splitting multitasking. Being here, right now, to do this thing, to the glory of God, dwelling in a space between our coming and our going. Let this nourish your spirit and positively affect your task at hand.
