The Day After


As I make my morning espresso

it ends up all over my white counters

reminding me of how I am a pretty messy "cooker".

After I make my espresso

my kitchen looks like I just made

thanksgiving dinner.

No matter how hard I try

there are

black speckles

&

black rings of coffee

all over the place and even on my white robe.

Just ask my hubby

as he wipes under his cup every morning

checking for the evidence.

And there it is.

What if, just what if

we could only dress in

PURE WHITE

and every time

we did something & we said something & we thought something

that was not very

PURE

we would get a black mark.

You know~

when you say the "unwholesome talk" about someone else or even yourself

or

when you do what you know you shouldn't do but you do it anyway

or

when you think that something that you should not be thinking but you think it anyway.

Oh what if?

Would you still be wearing WHITE?

Oh yes

if you were covered in RED.

The RED of CHRIST

The bloodshed on Good Friday

that brings us to RESURRECTION SUNDAY

where

there is no longer the striving for perfection

because we are incapable of living spot free

as long as we are dressed in the skin that we are dressed in.

So what if you didn't have to strive any longer.

What if you didn't have to be

PERFECT

in order to

be

ACCEPTED

SIGNIFICANT

&

SECURE.

What if you could

be

RESTORED

RENEWED

REDEEMED

and live

SPOTLESS.

Do you want to wear PURE WHITE?

Oh thank YOU JESUS

for wearing RED so we can wear white~

"Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow;

though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool" (Isaiah 1:18)

FROM RAGS TO RICHES.

Let's wear HIS RED first

and journey together

to

Live in HIS RESURRECTION

as

RESTORED. RENEWED. REDEEMED.

through the month of APRIL

because

HE wore RED so we could LIVE IN WHITE!

"THANK YOU JESUS FOR THE BLOOD" (listen to the song below)
