Seriously?  How can we go through this much laundry in just a few days?

If you’re like me, laundry is not one of your favorite chores.  I’ll wash and dry all day, but folding and putting away? Ugh!  That’s what children are for, right? (Just Kidding, no not really.) 

Well, this morning was a busy time in the laundry room. Before Holly and I went on a few errands, this is what our pool table looked like. ——->>>

Yep, there is a pool table under that mound of clean clothes.

I dropped her off at the house, ran a few more errands, and when I returned…Wala!  A game of pool anyone?

Now a couple of clean loads had already accumulated on the table prior to this morning’s wash.  They had actually been waiting to be folded for about two days. But all in all, Holly had about five loads to fold.  (I told you I wasn’t joking about “that’s what children are for”.)  When I dropped her off, she only had about an hour before some friends were going to pick her up for an afternoon of fun.  I told her that those clothes need to get done before five o’clock. 

I totally wasn’t expecting to return home and have it all done.  Not that she couldn’t get it done, but I just thought she’d do some now and some later.

Poor socks, get left behind every time.

I was impressed.  Holly attacked that mountain of clothes like no bodies’ business.

 

Now, the socks…that’s another story.

Let’s see, how does this relate to our walk with Christ?

  People have a tendency to accumulate “stuff” in their lives.  Whether that “stuff” is bad habits, bad friends, pride, selfishness, or what-have-you, “stuff” can keep us from seeing our full potential in Christ.  Once the pool table was cleared of “stuff”, you could see the real reason for its existence.

You have so much potential and reason for existence within you! 

Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.  Oh my, does He have plans for you!  Get your “stuff” out of the way and let God get busy.

BTW, I texted Holly and said, “Thanks for doing the laundry.  You did it so fast, I think your room is next…before we have friends arrive at 5:30.”  She replied, “Haha funny!”

Maybe I need to remind her of Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Haha, TRUE.

I pray God’s abundant love and blessings for y’all.
