I try to post Monday, Wednesday and Friday…and here it is 10:00PM (bedtime!!) on Wednesday….better late than never, right?! I don’t feel totally terrible about getting on the computer late as today was a very productive day! Hubbie was home today and we cleaned house…deep-cleaned…all day! Do I love cleaning? No. But how much nicer it is when we are able to work on the big projects together – and I totally DO love the finished work! Is it just me…or do you just feel good when the house looks nice. And the smell:) That sweet mixture of Murphy’s Oil, Pledge, Windex and just a bit of bleach…..makes me swoon!! While I was dusting – and enjoying the clean scents around the house – Ephesians 5:2 came to mind: “….Christ…hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling savour.” Christ’s obedience to become our saviour was a sweet-smelling sacrifice to God. How wonderful smells really are!! Perhaps, just like the smell of my clean house makes me feel happy…the sweet smelling savour, or scent, of my obedience is pleasing to my heavenly Father. I sure hope so. I want the prayer of my heart to be for Him to “create in me a clean heart” that is quick to hear His voice and willing to obey. Then that the aroma of obedience will waft Heavenward…… Now, I suppose there is such a thing as” too much of a good thing”. On the way to church this evening, we stopped by the store and bought some Simple Green. We have heard from several people how wonderful this stuff is at getting all kinds of stains out – from clothes, carpets, etc. etc. Even a random lady in the store who saw us buying it told us that Simple Green was great stuff! Wonderful. Unbeknownst to us, that very bottle of Simple Green, which apparently did not have its lid on correctly, leaked out all over the back floorboard of our car on the way to church. I noticed it when I grabbed my Bible bag and it was soaked…as was my Bible and all the other things in the bag. Not happy. Not even happy with the “aroma”…..or the highly concentrated scent of “fresh pine forest” that was covering everything I brought into church. It was Simple Green overdose. I just sat through the service hoping everyone thought the cleaning lady (who was sitting right behind!) did an exceptional job this week!!
