TODAY THE WORDS are LAUNDRY LAUGHS. This is one of those days when so many serious events and worries are high and a lot of our moods are serious. I like to go to a happier place to help relieve some of the tension. I don’t make light of those situations but it releases those pent up stress levels in order to keep the sanity. Today, since I usually do laundry on the weekend due to me working all week. This morning, it ran through my mind remembering some of the funny and some not so funny adventures in the laundry room and I thought some of you may have experienced a few of the same kind. All of us have scrambled to get the “found” money left by hurried loading of the laundry. I realize we have some readers who always take their time and look through all of the pockets….Smart thinking but there are also some of us who try to do so many things at one time; we miss items, right? The change is a good thing; dollars are better! Greg and I have had some laughs at the treasure and staking immediate claims on it with the other one claiming finder rights. How about during the laundry cycle, you suddenly remember where you had the important note with a phone number, a reference number, an address, etc. and you make a mad dash to the washer (faster than you normally run) only to find the ink smudged and the info lost. The washer somehow gets blamed for this atrocity and I find that guilty verdict so funny. How many times have you had to lay out cards and even photos to dry after discovering them after the wash cycle? You know you have (few exceptions but those who haven’t committed this disaster will not get the humor). Then there is the time when your favorite dry clean only sweater or other piece of clothing somehow, mysteriously sneaks into the washer while you are not looking and miniaturizes itself. I laughed so hard after wanting to cry when a sweater shrunk to doll clothes size and it hit me if I could get myself in the washer, could I shrink myself. Don’t worry about me; that thought passed quickly! The deeper thought…..Life is going to be hard at times; life has it tragic moments; it has heartwarming moments and tear dropping moments and we have to take some breaks from the worry and concerns and find some humor in the most common parts of our lives. God will take care of the hard moments; God will let us take care of the laundry.
DAILY FEATURED BIBLE VERSE:
3 Joshua was wearing dirty clothes and was standing in front of the angel. 4 The angel said to those standing in front of him, “Take off those dirty clothes.” Then the angel said to Joshua, “Look, I have taken away your sin from you, and I am giving you beautiful, fine clothes.”
