The Colander

I am about to tell off on myself. Risky. But here goes.

Cooked pasta drained in a colander. IMG_0712

Have you ever noticed the starch left behind takes a little more pressure to clean than some other residues? I noticed. Profoundly so today.

Water was hot and sudsy and I was set on moving quickly. Colander in hand, quick rub, set in the draining basket, oops missed a spot. Back in the water, another quick wipe, back in the basket and what! I blurted aloud, “You’re about to make me mad!” Simultaneously the word board of my mind read: “No. That would be YOUR choice (not the colander’s).” 

 I smiled. Gave Him praise and felt much-loved. 

21 Your ears will hear a word behind you, “This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right or to the left. via Isaiah 30:21 NASB;CJB – Your ears will hear a word behind you, – Bible Gateway.  Isaiah 30:21


A long weekend coming up – enjoy and give thanks.
