Spring is just around the corner! Are you ready for the spring-cleaning ritual? Each year my mom strongly urges me to donate clothing I’ve not worn in years, claiming that I use the majority of the available closet and drawer space in our home. I disagree with the amount of space I take! (smile) However, I will do it, and sort my clothes and shoes so I can contribute them to people in need.

What about spring cleaning of our hearts? Actually, we should not wait until spring to do this! We daily need to have our hearts cleansed by God so we can be one with Him. There is a great LWML devotion that you can use on your own or with your group to remember to clean your heart: Housecleaning — Heart Cleaning. Take a look at that devotion and others on the LWML website at Program Helps.

Enjoy your spring cleaning — and your daily heart cleaning!

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me (Psalm 51:10).
