It was about 2:00 p.m. I was still sleeping after working a 7pm-7am shift at the hospital. I faintly hear someone on the TV talking about how tired they were of all the ironing they had to do every week. Hmmm, that got my attention. As I peeked open an eye I see this man holding some kind of steaming device. “Cut your iron time in half!” I hear him promise. I am sucked in now. Then of course they bring in the real life mom’s with their piles of laundry. One swish of the arm and the wrinkles disappear! I sleepily scramble for my wallet. I know I was weak, but I HAD to have a TOBI! I dread Sunday nights. I set aside that time to iron all the kids clothes for a week. I am always glad on school days when we are rushing that the clothes are nice and neat. The thought of an easier week does not stop the grumble, pout and gripe when it’s time to do the work. I waited with great anticipation for my TOBI to get here. Once it arrived Tori and I quickly put it together and pulled out an eyelet dress to steam. Guess what….it worked. It did get the wrinkles out, but for some reason I thought it would really have a pressed look. It didn’t. The dress looked the same as it did when I ironed it. The TOBI was much quicker, especially when you add in not having to drag out the iron board. It heats up very quickly, which is always good. The negative… I have to hold the middle of shirts a certain way or else a large crease will appear. My arms also get tired about halfway through the job. Then again I’m steaming for an army. I also had to figure out how to do the bottom of pants since the steam does not work as well when the hose is in a low position. I had to play with it awhile but I got the hang of it eventually. I love that I can steam all of our church clothes without having to worry about burning them. On the mommy satisfactory scale, I give it a 8 out of 10 stars.

Deroot the religious spirit from our country. Bind up and destroy the spirit of white supremacy. Holy Spirit breath into the dry bones and raise them up for such a time as this. “Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they come to life." Peel off the coverings over our eyes. Let us see, hear and respond like you God. Let the world know we are Yours by our actions. Let the true image bearers shine light in every corner of this country. Bring down the prideful. Raise up the humble. We have heard what our ancestors say about you. Do among us as you did among them. I plead the blood of Jesus over every idol upheld by the American church. Let your fire fall from the heavens and cast them down. Enough of their dominance among your people. They are no longer welcome here in Jesus name. Cast their earthy thrones down God. Let the heavens open, shake the earths foundation, until your church puts away their earthly agendas and looks back to you. Do whatever it takes. Amen #prayer
