Lisa-Jo's prompt this week is LAUNDRY. Write for five minutes. No editing. Hit publish. Link up to all the other people writing about laundry for five minutes. Visit the person who linked up right before you did and leave a comment. That's it. That's Five Minute Friday.
Okay? LAUNDRY... Ready. Set. Go!
It's a chore I do not like. Not because it's difficult to do. But because it's never ending. Especially with kids in the house. Kids in sports.
Sometimes, when I load the washer with whites I think of the bible verse that says that God washes our sins whiter than snow. That amazes me. Especially when I look at my kids' dirty white socks. God takes the dirty parts of my life, the sin that entangles me, and He is able to get it cleaner than brand new. Whiter than snow.
I live in Minnesota. I know the beauty of freshly fallen snow. The purity of it. That metaphor speaks to me.
As I look at my family's endless laundry pile sitting in front of our TV waiting for someone to fold it, I think of God's endless love for me. Forgiving my dirty laundry, over and over again.
It makes doing laundry a little bit more bearable.
