Ponder: There are always, always, always more dishes to be done and more teeth to be brushed, when all you want to do is enjoy the moment when everything is cleaned and done. How can you love the brushing and washing up for its own sake, and not just the illusory moment of no-work receding infinitely into the future?

Pray: God of Sabbaths and Dirty Dishes, help us to know that all we have is this one moment, and to love the bubbles and the froth as much as the feeling of being done with our chores.
