Shoe Polish *Reduce-reuse-recycle*

 Remember when we bought it once and took good care of it to make it last. Now I now many of you wise souls have known this way. Knowledge lost of the wolves who have come gained not only our minds but our pocketbooks as well. This week pulling out a different hand bag and some old sandals to match it called in some tending too.
 Yep, there worn and seen not just a few miles. But they are mine, mine to what I own and afford. Yep, one day perhaps next year to the top of the budget will come a new pair. For now I delight in shoe polish. Once was a new pair of shoes were not taken for granted. My own mom was not able to go to school for her daddy would not get her a pair of shoes. Many years in the great depression things were so. Food and shelter mattered most. However my mom should of been treated better.
 Snippin' the threads and brushing out the ring yes...mine. the have good use left in them. They were purchased as a timeless style with purposeful intention.
Do ya one better than that. With folk forgetting just what polish is or is used for keep an eye out on clearance. Now days shelf space is more important than function. Now this was $1 a time back.
In stock keep your basics
other colors you use if applicable.
Mind you never polish swede shoes or handbags. for a colorless polish try leather wax. leather soap too.

Clean up those shoes when your do your pedicure. Shoes show your character. New or not, the care one takes of a shoe shows many an employer how detailed a person may be. Just an Old Wives Wisdom passed on.

Older women likewise teach the younger women...

• how to love their husbands
• how to love their children
• how to be self-controlled
• how to be pure
• how to be keepers at home
• how to be kind and submissive (not subservient) to their own husbands. (See Titus 2:3-5)

'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"
