Wide Loads Ahead

I’m linking up with Five Minute Friday fun over at The Gypsy Mama .  Join in!





Wide loads of laundry.  Piles and piles and piles that  just never seem to end!  I sort them and get increasingly frustrated at how easily people, short and tall alike in this family, can discard their clothes; some of which have only been worn for a few hours and aren’t even dirty!  And then I remember that they have learned their laundry creating habits from me.  Sweet Moses! Is this how I treat my clothes?  Is this how careless I am with the threads that clothe me?  I’m no longer thinking about laundry.




I’m thinking, now, of how easily I throw off the feeling that I’ve done wrong and need to seek forgiveness; how easily I cast off the royalty bestowed upon me as a daughter of The King; and how very easily sin can encumber me. I want my repentance to be immediate, my identity as a co-heir with Christ to be inherent, and I want my mercy streak to be a mile wide!


And with that admission and revelation, I’m ready to tackle those wide loads.  Bring on the laundry – and I say, the dirtier, to better! (Well, not really, about that last part.)

“I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and covered me with the robe of righteousness…”

Isaiah 61:10

  1. Beautiful post…I love that you take something so mundane and draw out the deeper meaning. Our dirty rags for his robes of righteousness!
    And I have written posts and posts about my laundry problem. And it is a problem, believe me! 😉
