Monday’s To Do List

when Monday's to do list is full of the mundane things

Today’s list is full of things like laundry and vacuuming and writing columns for the local paper and stopping by the chiropractor and filling prescriptions and cleaning out my car.  It’s the mundane stuff I often write on Monday’s to do list. The little things that help me start the week better.

These are not the earth-changing things, tasks that move mountains or inspire the masses.  Instead, Monday is full of the small things …

the steady hum of my dryer as all those piles are slowly tamed

the returning of all the moved items from last week to their proper place

the simple reward of freshly vacuumed carpets.

These may not be the big things but they are still the important things — the steady, stable things that make up the biggest part of my life.  Caring for my home, taking care of myself, investing in my family, this stuff matters. It isn’t grand and it isn’t the sort of topic that goes viral. But it is the stuff of life.

remembering that some days the most important things are not the big things

And so I lean into this long to do list full of simple tasks with this verse as my prayer —

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for man.

Colossians 3:23
