My target here is a devotional thought for moms--am I preachy? (I'm aiming for chatty and comfortable.)
Thanks for taking the time to read and comment! Any and all help and pointers will be appreciated!! :-)

I just put in yet another load of laundry today and as I was sorting I came across items that I knew were not dirty. The vest Ike, my youngest, wanted to wear on Sunday, but didnít because it didnít match, the sweatshirt Isaiah wore for 2 hours, because I was coldÖWhy were those things in the laundry?!

Oh, yes, now I remember. They got in big trouble recently for their messy room, big enough trouble that their roomís been clean now for 4 or 5 days! Just last night I complimented them on the good job they were doing because I was so impressed.

I was loading the washing machine, griping to myself about kids and their penchant for cleaning their rooms by throwing it all in the laundry, shoving it under their beds, or cramming it into their closets when I had a moment of truth. Moments of truth are good, but theyíre not always pleasant or enjoyable, at least those that come to me.

Those boys were cleaning their room like I clean, or try to clean, my life! Instead of picking up and dealing with the sin in my life, and getting rid of it, I tend to relocate it and shove it out of sight. The more I shove and cram, hiding my sin, the worse it will be when I get around to doing a deep clean. Just like my boys donít want me to have to pull their closet apart, I donít want God to have to empty out my closet of sin, itís much better if I just donít cram it in there to begin with!

As I started the washer I realized I had some cleaning to do in my life. No more simply relocating the sin in my life--out of sight is not good enough. Confessed and forgiven is the only way to being clean.
