Creating a craft and having developing OUR friend..

Sounds cool doesn't it? Well I promised besides sewing, and talking about Jesus, we would also have a craft and talk about the Lord. I will give you good news when you read this :)

We are going to make a simple, simple Body Scrub! Yum, yum..I have made this and it is easy and fabulous
Basically it is a delightful alternative to the loofah, yet gentle and a pleasant aroma. After you take a bath, dry completely. Rub the mixture into your skin. Let it dry on the skin and then rub it off using a soft washcloth while still standing in the tub. It will leave your skin feeling soft and clean. Ya know how beautiful it will look in pretty shell containers too!
Makes about 5 oz
2 tbsp powered orange rind
3 tbsp of ground almonds
2 tbsp of oatmeal
1 tbsp of red rose petals
about 6 tbsp of almond oil
5 drops of any flower oil (jasmine, rose, or lavender are nice)
5 drops of sand oil (sandalwood, rosewood, or cedar)
1. Blend all the dry ingredients together
2. Add the almond oil a tablespoon at a time blending to a crumbly paste. Stir in the essential oils of you choice. Store in a glass jar and use within 2 weeks

I promise it's not hard. All you need are the ingredients and you can get those at Whole Foods or a Natural Food place. If I can do it so can you. You skin will be so smooth.

Now one more thing before I go and it is our relationship with the Father. What choices will I make today in order to grow closer to God? Sounds simple right? Well I had to think about it for a while...You build a relationship with God by caring about what God cares about. This is what friends do..they care about what is important to the other person. The more you become God's friend, the more you will care about the things God cares about, grieve over the things God grieves over, and rejoice over the things that bring pleasure to Him. The biggest thing the Father care most about is that He wants all His lost children to be found!! Praise God!! Isn't that the whole reason why Jesus came to earth? The dearest thing to the heart of God is the death of His Son. The second is when His children share that news with others!! Amen

I keep reading and re-reading James 4:8" Draw close to Him and He will draw close to you" I went into the message bible and it says," Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the master; it's the only way you'll get on your feet" WOW!!
I care today that I am pleasing the Father, worshipping Him the way he would want. When Stephen was stoned in Acts, as he was dying he looked to heaven and saw Jesus. Stephen knew Him intensely, as did the apostle Paul. They were men after His own heart, as I feel that I am dying daily to sin.

"Father help me pray all day and every day..more than anything, anything, I want to get to know you intimately..seek me out Lord to worship in spirit and truth. Free to be open...Thank you Lord"

I Love You

Ladies-My husband had a prostate test about 3 months ago and completely forgot..guess what..he is fine!! Now I knew that didn't I!! But God had to prove himself to Mike for this to be real...As far as the blood, the doctor doesn't know what the problem is because it isn't there anymore..as usually Jesus is a healer and we knew that!! Praise God!!

Hey Donna,
I left a short note on Saturday morning's post but you must've decided to delete is and therefore my comment was deleted also.

Praise the Lord for His divine healing! May this healing provide more than just physical healing.

Hey, stop by my blog sometime. If you wait until later today I will have another post on Hebrews 12. It's good if I have to say so myself.

Be Blessed,

First praise God for all of you and Mikes healing. I will post tomorrow on something great! I just wanted to let sweatpea know that I didn't delete anything? These were the only comments that were on this site? So unfortunately I never received it..anyway keep coming and I promise I will be on yours also! I hope you are doing well with your situation. When we keep busy with Bible Studies, blogs and helps us forget all the garbage in this world. I am so glad that God is constantly giving me words for everyone and I praise Him for that!!

Donna,
Are you okay? Is everything okay? I've been thinking about you and concerned as you have not updated your blog and I've not seen a posting on Rachel's for some time. I hope you are just really busy and all is well with you.

Come visit my blog and let me know how you are.

In His Grasp,
Paula
