Laundry Lessons

Like most of you I spend a good deal of my time doing laundry. Once upon a time I detested laundry. It was the chore that seemed to pile up and then it took forever to get it done.

That was before I stopped working and had the time to really embrace home keeping. I now have a laundry schedule and for the most part I am able to keep up with it. I especially like doing laundry when I am able to hang it out on the line. Not only does it makes it smell good it gives me time to think.

Just as laundry must be cleansed often, diligently, I must also take the time to cleanse my heart. For I am human and have many faults.

Who can understand his errors? Cleanse me from secret faults. ~ Psalm 19:12

Laundry is cleansed by soap and water.  I am cleansed by God's word.

How can a young man cleanse his ways?  By taking heed according to Your word. ~ Psalm 119:9

If we confess our sins.  He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. ~ 1 John 1:19

When the laundry is complete you end up with fresh smelling clean clothes.  When I cleanse my heart by the word of God I end up with peace.

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. ~ Colossians 3:15

May your day be filled with joy and contentment.
