About one time a month

Okay, so about one time a month, I like to get naked. Over the years, I have not really become a clean freak, but I have gotten a lot more organized and clean. Maybe it is just apart of getting older. So back to being naked. I started my day with one goal: to mop the hardwoods. My roomies started cleaning this morning and I realized we didn't have any Murphy's Oil :) That's the best for hardwoods in my opinion after my 10 minutes of internet research :) I left to buy the Murphy's and stayed gone for 2-3 hours and came back with my Rover's oil changed, a few new ideas of furniture, and the Murphy's Oil Soap.

I came home, went to eat at Mac's, then headed off to buy a dining room table. I got a high table that looks pretty contemporary, I like it. I also got some new lights for the walk-way/house so you can see at night. I came home and put them up, because when I get something on my mind, I am focused. The lights look nice and pretty. It's about 10 o'clock and I never washed the hardwoods. So I decided, okay, back to the being naked part. It's not really efficient to try and deep clean your house when you are wearing clothes, you are going to mess them up. Well I am not a complete idiot, so I don't get naked until I start on the bathroom. It's so much easier to just strip and scrub everything, then hop in the shower and scrub it too. If you have never tried this, I suggest you try it, it's relaxing.

Disclaimer: I absolutely do NOT like scrubbing the toilet. I really don't know what it is but I think that is one of the worst things. I will go ahead and put this in writing. If I get married eventually, my wife can come back and read through my years of blogs and find my words. I will strike a deal with whomever I marry, if she doesn't mind doing the toilet scrubbing, I will mow the yard, wash the dishes, clean the bathroom(minus the toilet), mop the floor. Heck, I will do whatever just to not scrub the toilet. I feel like it just stares at me and all the people that have sat on it come to mind, mainly Sandy and it disgusts me. :) All and all, I will scrub a toilet if I need to, but it's not my favorite thing to do.

For some reason as I was scrubbing the toilet, I thought about the woman in Luke 7. Jesus comes over to have dinner with a Pharisee, and a prostitute comes in and just starts crying at his feet and washing his feet with her hair. She took her perfume, mainly a year of her salary, and adorns him with it. He uses this woman's example to show the religious people that this was true love and he would truly forgive her of her sins.

The simple fact that God created Himself in human form to enter into time with sinful people like us, well that is pretty amazing.

You know I've had some of my best conversations with God in the shower, but thinking about scripture while scrubbing the toilet? That's a new one on me. I'm sure the toilet & the rest of the bathroom is sparkling now & you can see your reflection in all the chrome. :)
