Cleanliness is next to Godliness! How many times did you hear that growing up? It applied to everything...from the body, to clothing, to housekeeping. It was every mother's mantra. I believe that now, instead of saying it, we just assume that it is a known fact. In my mind, it needs to again become the everyday statement heard the world over. Cleanliness is next to Godliness!
What brought this on, Missy? Waiting on or standing/sitting beside people whose odor takes your breath away. Honestly, I'm not talking about an honest day's sweat; tobacco smoke or cooking odors which have permeated your clothing and hair; or a medical condition. I'm talking about pure, unadulterated funk; i.e., musty clothing; b.o.
Michael Baisden did a segment on personal hygiene and callers related their horror stories...from the bedroom to the office. His comedic sidekick, George Wilborn, capped it off with "Wash your funky ass!" Truer words were never spoken.
Do the world a favor. Please remind your children, friends, and loved ones that "Cleanliness is next to Godliness." Perhaps they'll take the hint.
Be safe. Be Blessed.
