Musings on Cleaning

Every once in a while I go on a cleaning spree. I just get the overwhelming urge to do a thorough cleaning of everything. Today was one of those days. And I always feel so much better when I'm done. Everything looks so nice and orderly, and it smells of clean smells-- the pinesol kind, not the bleach kind.

I think perhaps I ought to try this with my life. I think every once in a while my heart deserves a thorough scrubbing; not just the daily surface clean, but a deep clean. I'm sure I would feel so much better afterward. And maybe my life would emanate a sweeter smell to my Jesus.

Doesn't the deep cleaning come after a ton of daily surface cleaning, but you just don't realize it until you look back to a few months before and compare the grime to the present amount of dirt?

I don't know. Something to think about...

P.S. I think God takes care of that part Himself, as long as you keep up your daily cleaning.

I know the feeling. I love having my house clean, and there is nothing better than knowing that even the "clutter" drawers are organized. It is quite simple to appear cleaned up on the outside, doing all the right things, but it takes a little longer and more focus to do the deep cleaning.
