Spaghetti splattered dishes haphazardly askew in an uncleaned sink.
Last night’s orange cheese grime caked on the metallic baking sheet.
Mold growing where apple juice resided in a pink sippy cup.
Making the 6th PB&J, of just this morning.
Bending low to wipe the yellow spotted toilet seat.
It’s the daily monotony that makes motherhood boring.
When we bend low with serving posture we see how low Christ bends to make Himself known to us.
He bends low to cleanse the mold of our messy souls.
He bends low to wipe away sobs of distress.
He bends low to open ears to cicada’s chants and noses to sweetgrass’ perfume.
Monotonous rituals of motherhood
creates in us
the serving posture of Christ.
