god cleans windows (3:09 pm)

i saw nothing  between me and the view outside, but out of habit reached for the half-filled spray bottle…
quite a bit of  “nothing” showed up on the paper towels now crumpled in my hand.


search me, god, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
 See if there is any offensive way in me,
    and lead me in the way everlasting.
(psalm 139:23-24)

maybe that’s why we ask...’cause god uses windex.

  1. I can understand what you say….though for me it’s certainly not windows that illustrate this in me. No, my windows rarely get cleaned on the inside (the outside is done by a window cleaner that comes every 6 weeks). And just last weekend I was telling my Mum that when the sun shines in and highlights that my windows could use a clean, it makes me happy. Happy that I have many other things that I can and prefer to do with my time than clean windows. Happy, because for me this represents a turning point a few years ago when I learned to let go of the little things that I SHOULD be doing and stopped being so hard on myself for not being able to do everything I felt I should. I replaced ‘should’ with ‘could’, ‘have to’ with ‘could do’. Took some pressure off, stopped being so hard on myself. For example, ‘I could clean the windows, but I choose not too because I have something else that I’d rather do today’. So yes, I don’t have the cleanest windows around, but I have also learned not to stress about that. :-)
