Me, My Hoover, and Jesus

Jan 24
And now for the promised picture you’ve all been waiting for…

…whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.  1 Corinthians 10:31

I just did it last week.  Must I do it again?  These were the thoughts rattling around in my head last Friday.  Friday is my clean day.  It is the time I reserve every seven-day-stretch to straighten, scrub, and vacuum.  Normally, I strategize my day and approach it with dread.  Not this day.  I got the idea to use my I-pod while I vacuumed.  I strapped on my I-pod, cranked up the praise tunes, and powered up the Hoover wind tunnel.  
Listening to tunes about my precious Jesus fueled me.  I have never cleaned with such a passion.  I vacuumed like no other.  The dirt was Satan and the Hoover was my Redeemer.  I swept Him over the floors, not missing a spot.  And just like that, my carpets were clean.  Friends, if you saw a big, ole’ sunbeam shining down on Buford, Georgia last week, it was just Jesus putting a spotlight on my praise show.  I did some dancin‘ and some shoutin‘!  You won’t believe what happened.
When I got to the last room, I had this funny feeling – like when I’m on the last bite of Grandmother’s homemade chocolate cake with fudge icing.  I didn’t want to be done.  Suddenly, I understood the verse …whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. I was vacuuming for Jesus.  And, friends, it felt good.
