— I —
Washing the dishes
Fresh water trickling down hands
Peace enters my soul
— II —
When I approach the sink and focus my thoughts,
reveal your character to me.
Quiet my mind and bring your perfect peace.
Dear Jesus, dear friend,
As the water runs and I scrub,
the suds and scraps of food wash away,
along with my resentments.
Teach me to forgive and serve my roommates.
Let this act of cleaning be one of love,
just as you serve and love us.
As I finish, drying and putting away,
I ask that I take your peace and grace
into the rest of my day.
