Subject: wash me

  Stepping out of the truck this morning I was washed with sunlight, sweet scents like honey suckle and sounds of spring birds singing.  It occurred to me that I needed to be washed in mind and heart as well.  Coming through the night and awakening, so often there are fears, doubts, strife and unclean thoughts that carry over.  I realized that I need an inward washing that only the Lord can do.  Here is a picture of a quiet brook that runs beside the path and reminds me of God's cleansing presence and word, which accompany my path.
Psalm 19 (The Message Translation)11-14: Clean the slate, God, so we can start the day fresh!  Keep me from stupid sins, from thinking I can take over your work; Then I can start this day sunwashed, scrubbed clean of the grime of sin.
