Sweeping up

#299 As I swept the chapel floor in preparation for a lovely #baptism, I was reminded of a scene in Bruce Almighty where Bruce mops the floor with God. Bruce had thought the task ridiculous and beneath him when first asked. Interestingly he was struck by the sense of calm mopping gave him, as well as a feeling of #achievement as he looked upon his work. That, with the #silentcompanionship of working with God, made him glad to have swept the floor. I also was incredibly glad of the opportunity to have silent companionship with God, in #chapel, while I swept. I saw the task as essential and a blessing as I could not be doing anything else while I was doing that…I had to focus! I look forward to my next floor sweeping opportunity!
