St. Joseph is one of my favorite saints! If God picked him to be His foster-father he must have been an amazing man! I'm sure he worked tirelessly to care for Mary and Jesus! I imagine he often had sore arms and splinter filled hands while he lovingly worked to provide all he could for his family. That's an inspiration to me! We are meant to work hard for God. All our efforts in life should be for Him -just like St. Joseph!
This chore chart includes a prayer:Dear God,
Sometimes I have trouble doing the chores and other jobs I'm asked to do.
Help me to remember how St. Joseph worked hard each and every day.
Protect me from the temptation to be lazy and disobedient. Give me the grace
to be a humble servant to my family and the world just as St. Joseph did.
