Airing my dirty laundry

I have aired my dirty laundry, hung it up for all to see and the germs that are unseen have been carried off in the breeze to others in the neighborhood.

How wrong of me!

I am so sorry.

Press play and listen to this Aaron Gillespie song as you read the last bit…

No video just music

It’s  dirty laundry because it came off of me and i am dirty.   It looks clean enough. Perhaps to other’s eyes it looks just fine, but that is because we all share the same dirt, everyone is dirty and those who say they are not or don’t admit to it are even more dirty that the rest.

The light colored clothes, hanging there for everyone to see, look light and bright. The white items look white to everyone’s sight. Even the dark colors look clean and are oh so colorful but they are dirty too.

They came from a dirty old earth suit, mine.

They came from a human with skin that has microscopic bugs living on the surface of the skin. Those bugs serve their purpose by eating the dead skin but the dead skin is so prevalent on this old man that some of the leftovers flake off and now the remaining flakes are falling to the ground or flying through the air around me as the clothing flops in the breeze.

i took those clothes off, i thought I washed them well but i don’t think there is any man made detergent on this earth that can kill all the germs and get all the dirt, i’ve tried all kinds of different brands.

Now the parasites (unseen to human eyes) are streaming thru the air and who knows who they will reach or have by now already reached?  oh how i wish i could take them back, but i can’t.

i’m sorry.

 

Today i’ve decided to let Jesus, who is out of this world, do my laundry from now on. I’m going to bring my dirty laundry to Him everyday rather than take it to anyone else, rather than air dry it. I am going to consciously let HIM do what no detergent made by man can do, kill the dead skin, kill the contagious germs, or maybe i should say pharisaical parasites.

He washes whiter than snow.

Say your prayers and remember germs are everywhere,  but so is Jesus.

Pressing on,

    Aaron Gillespie and The Almost
    Aaron’s Story:

    Aaron sang for several bands. The song used in this blog is by the band “THE ALMOST” here is the band “The Almost” ‘s Official Youtube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpBUEomh8JlogGY3yXMOyAQ

    Gillespie’s musical path began at age 14 when he co-founded Christian metalcore band Underoath then continued with the alt-rock band The Almost 13 years later. But leading worship has been a mainstay since age 15.

    Aaron grew up in Clearwater Florida and has toured the world playing music and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ in a language many young people speak but some older folks not only do not know how to speak, they have no desire to and more than likely could not learn it or speak it if they tried any more than Aaron could speak their language,

    There should be no offense to this because it is not in our nature or in our physical make up to speak as well to other generations as to our own, not impossible, but not very likely.

    When Aaron is not on tour he has lead a youth group in Clearwater Florida. For more details go to Aaron’s official website:

  2. To learn more about becoming immune to germs and Pharisaical parasites go to:
    acceptance
    and
    You made me do it?

    “…When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others you won’t be a victim of needless suffering.”
    “…Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgement, self-abuse and regrat.”
    -part of the 4 agreements by DON MIGUEL RUIZ

    I am learning detect the difference between fact and opinion and when anyone sneezes on me or coughs my way, or worse, i ask myself was that gesture, circumstance, comment, situation, criticism, behavior, non-verbal threat an opinion of theirs or a fact (the Truth) based on the only true plumb line of measurement and judgment for me, the word of God The Father, God The Son and God The Holy Spirit?
