Have You Folded Any Socks Lately?

1 Thessalonians 5:17, pray without ceasing, pray continuallly
One afternoon I got a call from my four-year-old granddaughter Gracie. She was so excited she was slurring her words, and I couldn’t understand her.

My daughter got on the phone and explained they'd been doing laundry and she'd taught Gracie how to roll her socks into a little bundle. As soon as Gracie mastered the task, she asked, “Where’s the phone? I have to tell Grammy!”

I felt honored. The fact that sock-folding is somewhat insignificant actually made Gracie's call more meaningful. Gracie knows I love her, and anything important to her is also important to me.

It's just like my relationship with God--He knows everything, but He still loves hearing what’s on my mind, no matter how small. That's part of what it means to "pray continually" as we're commanded in 1 Thessalonians 5:17.
My little Gracie

Have you folded any socks today? God is eager to hear about it!
