Spring is Here!

It’s a little chilly outside. (For whatever reason, I got hungry for chili when I wrote that…weird). But the sun is shining and it’s staying lighter longer and it’s simply a beautiful thing!

Today, we closed the safehouse for some spring cleaning and it NEEDED it! There was dirt on top the dirt. It was nasty. But, the team I have stepped up, tore into and within a few hours, the place was clean, clean, clean. It’s been a great day.

I’ve been in cleaning mood lately. I started to clean my car yesterday, I cleaned my office today, I will probably clean my room later and before you know it, there’ll be nothing left to clean.

Until Tuesday, when the safehouse opens again and teenagers come piling through the doors. Then it’ll be time to clean all over again. Which is a great problem. I’d never want to clean the safehouse and never worry about it again since that means nobody is using it.

Overall, I’m not the BIGGEST fan of cleaning, but it’s something needs done. And the fact that it needs done means that something more important is happening. The safehouse is being used.

What other things can you think of that you don’t like to do, but the fact that you have to do them means something more important is happening?

Perhaps, having to relocate to a bigger facility because so many people are coming in, for example?

Let’s get some comments on this here blog!

    Yay for cleaning… It’s good to do a bunch when you’re in the mood.

    Cleaning is definitely a spring kinda thing. And thank God for the promise and hope of spring here in northeastern Ohio. Something inside of me gets brighter and more expectant when the gloomy gray starts giving way to longer, sunnier days. Just this morning, I saw flowers beginning to pop out of the cold, hard ground. That is so cool. When that starts happening each spring, every once in a while, I catch a glimpse of the ultimate, eternal spring. God, I can’t wait! Heavenly Father, don’t let up on your cleaning in me, so that I am ready for your everlasting, unending spring break!
