The Clouds…

images.jpg heart in the clouds

This blew my mind this morning….”It is not true to say that God wants to teach us some thing in our trials; through every cloud He brings, He wants us to unlearn some thing.” Oswald Chambers

Which leads me to ask myself the question; “what do I need to un learn?”….Oh, I could think of a lot of things!! So I ask you…what do you need to un learn? Bad habits,bad relational styles,  hang ups, addictions?

Wise man that Oswald Chambers!! After he has been long gone, he is still challenging us today. So, look at “The clouds in your life” and see them as an opportunity for change. Really nothing can change until you can change how you think about it. It is not easy, but it is possible. It might take all the energy you have every day, but as you persist, it will get easier. You will look back at some point and realize how far you’ve come!

As you enter your weekend, consider what things you could un learn and think about new things you could learn in it’s place. Here is some thing new for you to learn…..as far as summer pests go, nothing is as strong as cedarwood ! It really helps curb ticks and other bugs! We are making a new tick spray for summer using cedarwood!

What things do you need to un learn in your life? Have you ever used cedarwood? We want to hear from you today!!

Strong as Cedarwood

The wood from cedar trees is known for its resilience and its ability to repel pests like moths. Funnily enough, Cedarwood oil has a similar effect on life circumstances, helping to support and boost confidence in the midst of challenging situations, creating resilience and repelling pests in the events of life.

I am back at school at the Aromatic Wisdom Institute in Selinsgrove. It’s my last week here, when I will graduate with my certification as an aromatherapist.

Spring is in full swing, and the area is beautiful. I am so blessed to get to spend time from here, where it’s so peaceful and pretty!

As I’ve been taking in this gorgeous scenery, I am pondering both challenging and celebratory events going on in my life right now. I am reminded that in nature we see the ongoing cycle of changing circumstances, renewal, and new life. God in the Bible confirms this, that the world goes round and things change. But He promises that He will always stay the same – constant, supportive, and resilient.

I am so thankful for this strong, grounding hope. I am thankful that we can experience it in something as simple as oil from the cedar tree, enduring, grounding, and calming.

Cedarwood oil also helps removes excess mucous from respiratory system for those seasonal allergies, and also kills insects. It is dependable, it is protective, it is resilient.

And when the Bible says that creation bears witness to the glory of God, I can see what it means, even in a thing like cedarwood.
