Squeaky Clean

I cannot comprehend why some children fight baths or showers with the tenacity of a snapping turtle. My times soaking in either a tub or being drenched during a shower are times to relax tense muscles, unwind after stressful situations or feel energized for the day ahead. Washing my hair is the closing act. I apply a generous amount of fragrant shampoo, work it to lather and rinse the suds away until my hair is squeaky clean.

I’m clueless as to who coined the phrase squeaky clean but it appropriately describes how God has washed away my sins. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9 NAS).” He removes guilt stains from my conscience, wraps me in a robe of righteousness and holds me securely giving everlasting life. I may begin a daily routine of singing praises in the shower!
