thus far, for a vacation that is. SU and I decided to just hang out around the trailer and see what we could get into. Unfortunately, for SU that means changing something, this time involving painting.
I think that the CIA should use painting around the trailer as torture on Gitmo. And they probably would if the ACLU would allow it. We finally settled on just one room, our bedroom. Of course, what is painting without an overall design scheme, new bedding, new stereo (heh), new accent furnishings, all new electrical outlets (color thing) and for the heck of it, let’s just throw in entirely new wall hangings. Ah, what a relaxing vacation.
Also worked on the pool. Amazing how quickly pools turn into monsters if you don’t feed them correctly. Sparkling clear blue now. If this weather holds, should be able to jump in around the first of May. Buddy, on the other hand, is already a regular. Some Doberman he is.
While cleaning the pool yesterday, I once again thought about how we allow our lives to become infested with sin. It happens so quickly that we don’t even realize it. I think this is pretty much what Jesus was talking about when He made the comment about the Pharisees looking good on the outside but are nasty and dirty on the inside.
A neglected pool doesn’t look all that bad, just a bit of yellow here, a bit of dirt there, some leaves on the side. But when you start to clean it up, it becomes so cloudy that you can’t see the bottom. And remains that way until the filter has a chance to sift it clean. That’s how it is with our lives. Once we start on the path to cleanliness, we become embroiled in the fog and want to quit. But if we just hang on long enough, Christ will filter all of the sin away. If we just hang on long enough.
