Church Cleaning, 2006
We scrubbed the benches – –
Dave and Daniel work at the stubborn black marks.
Robert uses elbow grease to get his benches clean.
Tammy and her helper scrub benches, too.
Kathy came along behind and polished
So did Thisisloretta, but she tried to play “keep away from the camera!”
EDIT*** I’m really sorry for this unflattering picture, but I didn’t want anyone to think she wasn’t there.
She WAS!!! She worked very hard!!! She and her husband and grandson were the last to leave!!!
She really doesn’t usually look so glum! (I love you, Loretta!)
(conscience-stricken, the owner of this xanga site folds under pressure and deletes the unflattering picture of her friend)
(I still love you, Loretta!)
Joel cleaned the lights. No one tried to take his job.
Gokum swept and swept and swept. And then she swept some more.
Emily was a big help, but she did need a break to play with her “balloon.”
You can’t see him very well, but this is Mr. Jones of the big black hat in the previous post. He lugged the stepladder around and helped to clean windows.
We lugged buckets and cleaning supplies. Loretta looks tired,
We re-arranged bulletin boards and took down the out of date stuff.
Mrs. Jones is quite capable organizer
Youngest Daughter drove to fulfill her drivers ed requirements from 7-9 AM this morning, then came and helped to clean. These windows were only a fraction of her jobs.
Loretta B and Wesley are ready to go home. It was hard work!
Is there such a thing as “Music to clean church by?”
Yes, indeed, and Caleb and Eldest Daughter found some.
The last thing to be done was to clean the outside lights.
James and his son, our Beloved Son in Law, did the honors,
Assisted by Certain Man and Eldest Daughter
12:30 pm, and it looks like everything is finished.
What a job!!! But what a satisfied feeling.
And we didn’t need to do the basement, because it was already clean.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for wonderful help, willing hands, and a beautiful day.
Thank you for a clean church house once again.
But may we be more concerned about clean hands and a pure heart.
And may your Holy name be exalted in our church, in our families, and in our lives.
