April 8 – Glass Class

April 8, 2008

Sometimes we get jobs or responsibilities we don’t like, but we still have to do them.  I remember long ago being assigned to wash the stained glass window in a 100-year-old house.  I don’t think it had ever been washed before – it was a nasty, dirty job, up on a ladder, soapy water running down my arms, lots of little bits that needed careful attention…

But the reward – when I first saw the sun streaming in through that beautiful colored glass, it was magnificent!  Worth every second of scrubbing!

Sometimes we don’t know how dirty something is until we get it clean again, and see it in the daylight.  We have no idea how beautiful something can be when we take the time and effort to wipe off the dirt and dust and let the sun shine in!
