We have all been in situations in which things do not look like they are adding up to an answer we are going to like. For instance, when your child discovers a personality conflict with a teacher at the beginning of the year, one plus one does not look like…
“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.”–Colossians 3:15 The phrase, “Let the peace of Christ rule” is calling my name. Peace sounds especially good after a long, frustrating day or after a disagreement with someone I care…

No wonder no one gets excited about washing dishes.
