wash me clean, (but set me free,) please!

Create in me a clean heart, O God.  Psalm 51.

they were dirty. they needed cleaned. and there was only one place to heigh-ho and go.

the laundromat.

“Wait, what?  I do not like this very much! At. All.  ‘Be Brave’ my fun-stuffed friends!!”

could it be? that she.

would not understand.

“I am in no way comfortable with this.”

and so there needed to be a plan…

“Stay calm, and stick together everyone! I, the best golden-retreiver-in-the-universe, will save you!”

round & round & round they’ll go…

where they’ll stop, wait…


knows, where is Helen?

uh, oh. nice try Helen. (miss distraction-ator!)

“Want to play catch? Or fetch?”

 we know you do not like


“But I couldn’t find a tennis ball.”

now this was very clever indeed.

“You cannot see me but I am resting on the floor near the red-headed lady’s prayer books.”

but morning prayer is finished. (and it’s already noon too.)

only one thing to do.

wash you too!!

“This is NOT how I saw this going…”

at last they’re (all) dry!

“Don’t worry! I will get the red-headed lady to look the other way!  And then at last, I will rescue you!”

and now that


is over…

“we will never get dirty again!”

hugs n’ sudsy blessings!

Cleanse me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

~ Psalm 51:7
