Word FILLED Wednesday: Bleach your sins!

I had such a neat talk with my Emma-bean while working on the laundry. She was asking about bleach. "What's that for MomE?" I said something to the effect that it made the whites as "white as snow." She sings the "color book song" at church....

My heart was black with sin (color black) until the Savior came in.

His precious blood (color red) I know has made me white as snow. (color white)

And in his word I'm told I'll walk the streets of gold. (color yellow)

To grow in Christ each day I'll read my Bible and pray. (color green)

...so she asked if bleach was like Jesus' blood. Huh...neat! We had a great talk about how we all have black sin in our hearts that needs to be washed by Jesus...so we can have hearts that are white as snow. So, do you have a Jesus bleached heart? HA!

Smiles and love to you all!

It's FUNNY how sometimes they just HIT you right in the heart...I JUST got done "laundering" football pants...the stains, the grass, the ground in dirt...
Amazing what a little bleach will do, leaving my little man to say, "Mom, how do you get them clean again??"

This was just wonderful! It's absolutely perfect...a Jesus bleached heart!

LOVE IT! You certainly spoke my language today girl!

peace!

Regarding "teaching them in our homes"...I feel that this is a mandate for all parents to raise your children in the "nurture and admonition of the Lord" REGARDLESS of your educational choices...be they home, private or PUBLIC.
