Homemade sugar oil scrub

 Lately I have become much more grateful to have legs that work. Ones that have feet attached that work. Taken often for granted we forget the treasures they are. So to celebrate these gifts came sugar and avocado oil scrub. 1/2 cup grain sugar and 3 tbs oil. Olive can be used or coconut, use an oil that you would be willing to eat. That is what measure I use. My skin is alive and living oils will cause it to thrive.
Mix in a bit of water to form a moist paste.
 With the hand spun ceramic bowl I made some 15 years ago and a wooden spoon from the earth mixed I the creamed sugar and oil mixture. There is something about wooden spoons that make me feel close to this terrestrial peace.
 By spooning the paste and rubbing it the skin will begin to slough off. It will begin to ball up and turn crumbly. When it will rub no longer rinse. You will be stunned at the new silky skin. No lotion will be needed for days.
 When you look at the tub the evidence can be seen. The residue is no problem to remove. Real ingredients do not need artificial chemicals to remove. No petro based oils are used. In store bought items it will be a different story.
 Simply use a cloth and the tub will easily wipe clean. That is all there is to it.
 Last month for our anniversary I asked for new rugs for our master bath. I love the gray. Some day carpet of gray is the dream. Now I remain appreciative of the 20 year old pink carpet.
For a kind touch toothpaste shine for my ring.

Today was infusion. My nurse left just a few moments ago. Blessed am I so very blessed. We slowed this infusion down. Four weeks ago it did not go so well. With the knee injections, my pups death and all the other adventures in character it all caught up to me.
Today was a good day. We watched movies and enjoyed each other for six hours and those drops of sustain life came into my vein via the port within my chest. Needle insertion is getting better for the site is beginning to toughen up.
Dash is home from a sleep over and Dove will do a second night over. The morning was calm so nice on an infusion day to begin that way. Those morning have an innate layer of stress as it is. Raining all day the weather called for a cozy blanket and a good movie. Ned Divine and Nims' Island were the two we watched. She also asked a tutorial in food storage and preservation. So I gave her a tour of the freezers and pantry.
My nurse could be my daughter in a different life. She is the age one might be. What a gift she is . I find it so touching how she admires me so. I admire her so. Funny how we can often find so much beauty in others when beauthy is within the eye to find.
Resting is the call of the afternoon for me as well as hydration. This elusive woman thought to stop here to visit some. So many of you are in mind. Yet reclusive seems be me these last few months.

There have been several profound items come to light of recent. 
One is that after years of wondering, years of trying to figure out...this calls for another post.

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
