Laundry Day

Ever notice how complicated "care labels" on clothing have become? Always wash by hand. Wash by hand at your own risk. Cold water only. Hot water preferred. Tumble dry. Line dry. Dry clean only. Dry clean only if you want this garment destroyed. Yada yada yada. Whatever happened to simply being...clean?

Funny how I likewise tend to complexify my own spiritual dirt and self-stained heart, when the Great Soul Launderer simply says, "Come to me and I'll wash you clean." No fancy instructions, no grand pre-wash requirements, no complicated rituals or expensive equipment needed. Simply come, and be clean.

How's that for this daily laundry called grace?
