20 Second Gift

Are you tired of washing your hands for 20 seconds? Yep, it often seems rather long doesn't it. Well it did until I read this essay about how the author's mind was changed and thus, mine too. 

She was annoyed until her husband mentioned that saying the Lord's Prayer is 20 seconds long. Aha! Washing hands becomes a spiritual practice, a chance to pray, to connect with God and forget ourselves. (And a welcome relief from Happy Birthday.)

Washing my hands is now a 20 second gift. 

Thank you Jesus for in your mercy I am changed.
