Toss me in a Biz Bag …

“Who can survive his [God’s] appearance?….  He’ll be like the strongest lye soap at the laundry… as a cleanser of dirty clothes. Malachi 3:2

Biz Bag possibility?

Biz Bag possibility?

When my children were babies and toddlers, I had a Biz Bag–a place where I put the clothes that needed to be pre-soaked before washing. Even while wearing a bib, there were stains on their shirts–drools from teething, that chocolate fudgebar treat, or black dirt after a rain.

I labored over the stains in their shirts and dresses. Whenever we left the house, I wanted my children to look like little models from the Sear’s catalogue. Unfortunately, some garments never came clean–especially the ones with black Illinois mud. These items became play clothes, and my pride didn’t allow me to hand them down to younger cousins.

From the scripture today, it sounds as if God has a Biz Bag, too.


Dear Lord, please scrub me and wipe away all my earthly stains. Amen.
