Please, Can We Be Nice and Love One Another......




Friday was a day of rejoicing for some and a day of sadness for others.






I will not take a stand either way on this. I have a VERY STRONG opinion on judging others. God did not put us here to do His job. He put us here to have a relationship with Him and to love others.







We need to remember that words HURT. I hate the poem “Sticks and Stones” because words do hurt. Words can KILL. Let us not hurt others. I have been hurt with the sticks and stones but they are gone. I have carried the words with me forever. I try to turn them off but sometimes they raise there ugliness.

Please!! Think how you would feel if someone said it to you. You don’t have to agree but you don’t have to be so mean to get your OPINION across.







Love can reach so much further then hate. Love covers the pain, fear, etc.. Grace is what we need daily. Let us give grace to those out in the world.

Remember you will be judged as you judge others. I choose to LOVE and let God do what He does so well!

We Judge ourselves hard enough lets not pass it on.

You are LOVED in this space. I truly care for you and I wish I  could help take away your pain.

Love is only given here.

How do you start?
Well, hire a friend to help you.

Life is more fun when you do it with someone else. So is a project. 

Does and Don’ts
  • Do turn on music helps to get you moving
  • do it with a friend
  • set a timer if you need
  • break it up into smaller jobs

Are You in a Valley?

Are you stuck?

Psalms 23:4 says “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod& your staff, they comfort me.”



  • Valleys are to be walked in, NOT lived in! Keep walking don’t up.
  • Valleys are where we need light. Shadows are scary, but shadows can’t hurt you. Have you ever noticed how much bigger it is  then the original object.
  • Valleys expose our greatest fears. Did you know once they are exposed they are not as scary because they are exposed to the light. So they aren’t as dark any more.
  • Valleys are where I meet God. Sometimes when things are going well we don’t seek God but when things get hard we run to Him. He helps us out of the valley so we can walk among the clouds. 
Sometimes we are put in the valley to help someone else out.

Did you know we weren’t created for the spirit of fear. There are over 365 promises in the Bible over fear. That is a new promise everyday.

To get unstuck try some of these steps.
The motivation for today. 
You CAN choose to leave the valley!
Are you ready to take those steps?

Lemon, Oh How I love Lemon.......



Lemon has always been scent that makes me happy. It is like sunshine on a cloudy gray day.
I live in Washington State, I know about cloudy gray days.

We are very lucky right now it is beautiful. A wonderful reason to have a frozen lemonade.

I use lemon oil many different ways. I love it in my smoothies or water but please make sure you are using a brand that is ok to take internally. One that show it has a supplement label.
Why is this important? Because not all essential oils are created equal. They don’t regulate what else they may put in that bottle. As long as what they say it is what it is, is really in it than they are not breaking any laws. Please be safe. It is like the “natural” items. As long as there is one ingredient that is natural they can label it that way....Really??

 Properties of Lemon:

  • Promotes cellular health
  • Uplifts mood
  • Purifying
  • cleansing
  • Antioxidant
  • Astringent
  • invigorating
  • refreshing 
It supports the digestive, immune and respiratory systems.  Its fragrance is invigorating, enhancing and warming. Did you know that if you are feeling nauseous you can smell it and it calms those feeling. I have a friend who did that for morning sickness. She said it worked great.
Safety concerns is staying out of the sun for 12 hours after applying because it can be photosensitive.
The odor is a top note that is sweet, sharp, clear citrusy with an intensity of 3. 

Emotionally:

It is the oil of focus. The delightful citrusy aroma of lemon nourishes the mind and aids concentration. Lemon supports the emotional body, its major effects are experienced in the mental field. The crisp scent of lemon improves one’s ability to focus. It is great for kids who struggle in school. It teaches us to be mentally present. It dispels confusion and bestows clarity. Lemon clears self judgement. It calms fears and insecurities while restoring confidence in self. 


You can find more in the “Emotions and Essential Oils book” They do have it in Kindle form too.

If you would like to experience some lemon essential oil that is pure and potent please reach out. I would love to help you find your bottle of sunshine too.

Mercy

Mercy is something that is freely given, it is not earned.
Mercy is something that you show your neighbor when they did something that upset you but they weren’t trying to hurt you.
Mercy  is something you give to your teenager when they make a mistake that they already have beat themselves up for and you give them a hug and tell them you understand.
Mercy is that scratch your wife accidentally put in the car today and you looked the other way or dry her tears.
Mercy is the homeless person on the corner that you just gave your lunch to or the money to buy it.
 Mercy is what God gives us everyday as we walk on this earth. For the thoughts we think and the words we say and He says, “It is ok child, I forgive you”.
Mercy is a smile to someone who has had a hard day.

May you find mercy while you give it to others today.
God bless.
