It is March. What happened to February? It seemed to just have flown by. We can now say Spring is just around the corner. The days are staying light longer and some of us are hoping they can start the spring cleaning. When I grew up spring cleaning was done every spring. The winter carpet was taken out, the curtains were washed, the walls would get a scrubbing and all the cupboards were emptied, cleaned, sorted and repacked. That was then ….

It made me think of ourselves. How often do we take stock of ourselves. Is there any cleaning to be done inside? Are we becoming neglectful and forget about our Creator? He wants us to be a clean vessel, so He can work in us and through us. 1 Corinthians 6:19,20 tells us “Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, Who is in you whom you have received from God? Therefor honour God with your body.

This is a daily task to undertake, not only on the outside, but also our innermost being.
