- Learn to laugh at yourself. Start by posting an embarrassing childhood picture.
I decided to post some of those photos. Housework is humble work, done out of love and is not usually praised. And these photos aren't exactly the most flattering, so we can all laugh together:
|Photo: In the kitchen with my mom. I'm making a mess rolling out a pie dough. I'm scared now to think of what impish thought was in my head at the time--my facial expression looks devilish.|
|Photo: Me at the kitchen sink, washing up after a particularly messy painting session (either that or I butchered a large animal--it's hard to tell.)|
|Photo: I had apparently put aside my fear of the vacuum cleaner for the moment. Check out my doggie slippers!|
|Photo: Me striking a "happy homemaker" pose, with my dustpan and broom between the kitchen and the utility room|
|Photo: A grown-up version of the above photo|
No matter how much I want to be a capable, grown-up adult, many times, I still feel like I am just acting the part. Perhaps the point of humility is to get us to rely on our Heavenly Father--to acknowledge that we are nothing without Him, but that with His love and guidance, we can accomplish the tasks before us, no matter how humble they are, and no matter how we might be dressed.
Thanks for Jesus Christ, the perfect example of all good traits.
