Spring Cleaning

I am in a spring cleaning mood this week.  I have a running log in my mind of each place in my tiny house that I want to clean this weekend.  I have seen lots of people out and about buying seeds to start their gardens, mulch to give their flower beds a fresh feel, and all of the trees in our area are starting to bloom!  So exciting!

Andrew would disagree though.. his allergies are going nuts! 

This time of the year also brings on the need to Spring Clean my heart as well.  To eat healthier, exercise, and get back in the swing of spending time with God each day. 

I hope this passage of scripture encourages you as much as it has encouraged me today...

Have mercy on me, O God, according to your
unfailing love; according to your great
compassion blot out my transgressions.

Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.
For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me.
Against you, you only, have I sinned and done what is evil in your sight;
so you are right in your verdict and justified when you judge.

Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.
Yet you desired faithfulness even in the womb;
you taught me wisdom in that secret place.
Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
 Let me hear joy and gladness;
 let the bones you have crushed rejoice.
Hide your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquity.

Create in me a pure heart,
O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Psalm 51:1-10

Happy Cleaning!
