In life, sometimes our mistakes are similar to the bleach stain in that we are still reminded of things we messed up on. I think in these moments we need to focus on Christ and what HE DID for us on the cross rather than what WE DID. Jesus is so much bigger than our past mistakes and certainly, his love for us is much greater than anything we have done.
There are times when I neglect my morning routine. Weekends are often times for later mornings and, as a result, more people about the house which doesn't lend itself to that quiet time with God. Vacation is another time when my routine is just off.
