I love having a clean house but my problem is that I want someone else to do it. It would be so wonderful to have little elves, not 12, but maybe 4 who would clean each day while everyone is gone. That has been a dream of mine for many years. Since I don’t have a fairy tale life, I have to wait for my mom to come visit, beg the boys or clean up myself. What’s NOT a fairy tale is that God cleans us up white as snow. “Come now, let us settle the matter”, says the Lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow, though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool” (Isaiah 1:18). It doesn’t matter how dirty we are, how bad we feel from sins or shame or what we’ve done that seem unforgiveable, God will clean us up and make us new!
