Dust bunnies and cobwebs

My kitchen isn't immaculate--there are often dirty dishes waiting to be done or a cookbook still sitting out. But it's relatively clean, at least enough to be healthy.

Or so I thought.

I was on a ladder in the kitchen today, and discovered a thick layer of dust and cobwebs over the top of the cabinets. Ew!

Guess perspective matters. I'm sure when God looks at my heart, he sees all the cobwebs and dust that got missed in my last housecleaning...

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me!

But, He also sees just the right dust rag or feather duster that will clean it all up in no time flat! And, He always leaves an immaculate heart when we leave the cleaning to Him:)

(I found a box of moldy Krispy Kreme donuts on the top of one of our cabinets once...don't know how it got there or why! I much prefer the dust bunnies!)

This happened to me yesterday! A huge cobweb and just a bunch of nasty stuff was under a cabinet.
How are you? TTYL!

Love this analogy! I know I've got cobwebs in both my kitchen and my heart.
