Thanks to the many gracious women (and men) who submitted pictures of their laundry rooms and were unwittingly entered in to the “Cleaniest or Dirtiest Laundry Room” contest at church on Sunday. Congrats to Debbie G. for having the cleanest laundry room and to Kristen S. for being the gracious winner of having the “dirtiest” laundry room! (See pics below!) All of the pictures helped us to introduce the idea that we all have some stains in our lives. For good or bad, we have been “stained” by our family of origen and that is reflected in our adulthood. The Bible says, “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” (Proverbs 22:6). In other words, whatever “training” we received in our childhood shows up in our adult years. And, if we don’t make some changes to eliminate the stains, our children are doomed to repeat the same cycle we are in as we pass the stains along to them. It’s time to break the “stain cycle.”
