Forgiveness

MP900177811

As long as we live in this world with other humans, we are going to need to learn forgiveness. It is some thing that I have been taking a long time meditation on lately.

There are ways that I have been hurt or offended and have in turn, hurt and offended others..intentionally or not.It is so easy to say that we forgive some one, but then have a wall around ourselves so that we do not get hurt again.When we build that wall, we really have to ask ourselves if we have truly forgiven the other person.

It gets tricky, because we need to have healthy boundaries in relationships and we need people to be responsible for their own garbage. But I whole heartedly agree that freedom comes into our life when we walk in forgiveness.

As in The Lord’s Prayer;

“Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”

and Jesus also says “forgive your brother and sister from your heart.”

He also says that if we do not forgive one another, our heavenly father will not forgive us.

That sounds harsh at first, but then if we realize that God sent His son to earth to take all of the sin and offenses of the world so that we could ultimately have forgiveness of our sins to have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ..it is the ultimate gift. And God isn’t expecting us to do any thing that He wasn’t willing to do first. Forgiveness is extremely important to Him, and He wants it to be a priority to us.

There are many studies that show if we carry un- forgiveness it can cause physical problems in our body. Many people who are unforgiving have faces that show a continual disappointment and resentment. I never want to be that way inside and I never want it to manifest itself by reflection on my face!!

The cross of Jesus Christ was all about forgiveness.  He was perfect and took all of the tragedy, pain, and every kind of suffering of the world on Himself. He took it out of the way between us, tearing down the wall, making a way to fellowship with Him. We can do much less than that with each other and walk in forgiveness and love.

I wrote my term paper on Spikenard, which has so many properties that are used in healing and forgiveness. It is the oil that a woman poured out on Jesus Christ to show her admiration for him and he said she was preparing him for his burial. It is an amazing oil that can heal deep wounds, physically as well as used emotionally.

“I forgive you” can be the most powerful words you can ever say or do…especially if the other person really doesn’t deserve it. It is empowering! Let’s practice it together!

Favorite Natural Cosmetics

Hello everyone! Hannah here. A few months back I shared some of my favorite natural makeup products. Today I want to update that list!

In the time since my last post, I’ve discovered Burt’s Bees’ new BB Cream. I’ve been on the hunt for a natural lightweight foundation/BB cream for a while, and it’s difficult to find a good product because most of the ingredients that create the look and texture we’re used to are synthetic substances. As someone who sees health in a holistic light, I think that you can’t layer unnatural products onto your skin without it eventually having some effect! I don’t use a lot of liquid foundation on my skin, but I did want something that could even out my skin tone and cover up blemishes when I want something extra.

Enter Burt’s Bees!

As the picture says, this product isn’t 100% natural. However, there are no parabens or silicones, two of the most common makeup ingredients. The texture is great, it applies smoothly, and it offers buildable coverage that enhances the face without acting like a mask. And it smells wonderful, too!

Have you tried this BB cream? Let us know what you think, and click the link below to see my other favorite pics for natural cosmetics. Have a great weekend!

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;

Honey Mint

Hello all! Spring is here and we’re excited. It’s our favorite season, almost our favorite holiday, and one of our favorite products has gotten a face lift! Meet the new and improved Honey Mint Lip Balm!

Honey Mint Lip Balm

This luxurious balm is made with a blend of coconut oil and beeswax, as well as nourishing ingredients like local honey and spearmint essential oil. Unlike commercial lip balms, which are formulated to make your lips dry so you buy more, our product is truly moisturizing and healing!

We chose spearmint for its softer, sweeter minty taste. We are planning to experiment with some tints to offer several shades of balm, but for now, we’re excited with this new formula, and we’ll be offering it in our online store soon! Stay posted – we can’t wait to share our new lip balm with you!

I dream about it…. the moss, the rocks, the thatched roofs. I close my eyes, especially on spring rainy days like this, and pretend that I am there surrounded by “my people”!

I want to hear the music, laugh at the stories and walk along the sod completely being absorbed in the culture and giving great thanks to God for it.

I have not been there yet ,my soul longs for it almost as much as heaven…..

Until then, I pray, dream, and create melodies and blends! Our newest line Is called Allegheny Woods! It’s like the freshness of the outdoors and the exhilaration of spring!

Made with Cypress and Laurel leaf it is sure to keep you pining (pun intended) for more!

Enjoy your week and all of the Irish people in your life! God Bless your day and raise a glass of your different kind of Shamrock Shake to …Ireland Forever!!20160314_093122.jpg

 

 

 

“The Immortal Health Elixir”

Here’s a post we did back in August about one of our favorite holistic foods: Kombucha! Digestive health is incredibly important for overall health, and kombucha is an amazing way to achieve it!

“The Immortal Health Elixir.” Now, doesn’t that sound like one of those fad remedies from the 19th century? Do you picture a round man in a bowler hat trying to sell you a glass bottle of alcohol-laced elixir? Fortunately…
