"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

How to Make Ironing More Fun

Find a cute little helper, preferably one with a cheesy grin
Have good "dance" music. I had TobyMac, Mandisa, Britt Nicole, and Big Daddy Weave on yesterday.
Let your little helper be responsible for the hangers.
Have plenty of amusement available for your little helper for the in-between moments of helpfulness and dancing.
That's it! Iron ... sing out LOUD ... dance ... give lots of hugs and high fives to your little helper!
