As I’ve said we’ve just been clearing out the flat a bit because of the arrival of a new three piece suite – the first we’ve ever bought. Thanks God for your blessings! Anyway, I found behind some of the pictures and in the corners, cobwebs beginning to grow. It reminded me of when we were clearing Mum’s house when she died. In the cupboards the cobwebs we found were dark brown, I suppose due to the smoke and the dogs. It felt to me like they were like some sort of evil that clung to her, although she cleaned her house it was never clean, if you see what I mean. Like something creeping around the edges of her life. She’d had a difficult life in many ways but had fed on her own bitterness and anger. So it was a bit like sin always hovering around us in temptation and dark thoughts. Yet as a Christian I have a spiritual broom that sweeps them away without any effort, if only Mum could have seen that.
