DIY BEAUTY, LIP GLOSS

Image
There was an advantage to working with
young women before I retired.  Some of
then knew the best beauty tips and tricks.
I would of try them out if I thought  they 
were age appropriate for me.  Here are 
some DIY lip glosses I have made. The
web sites I have also included have DIY
recipes for lip gloss.







DIY BERRY FLAVOR LIP GLOSS

1 pack favorite flavor drink mix
petroleum jelly
empty recycled container
( mint tin or juice  bottle cap)
small recycled mixing  container

Prep your work surface with newspaper or 
old towel. In a micro-wave safe container, 
heat jelly until melted. Jelly will be very hot
BE CAREFUL!  Carefully remove melted jelly 
and  add drink mix until you get the desired
shade you like. I wear disposable gloves to 
avoid getting stained hands.  Stir and mix
until drink mix has completely dissolved. 
Fill up your container and let lip gloss cool.

Save the caps off my 64 oz bottles of juice
or save my mint tins  to use for 
my lip gloss.

Use pre-sw…

DAILY SCRIPTURE & PRAISE, 4/23/14

I was sitting on my deck today when I saw a hummingbird buzzing around my plant with
small red flowers.  I was so glad to see him
that I stopped talking on my cell phone.  I
thought is was too early for them.  I rushed
to the store and purchased a  feeder and a
bag of sugar.  


Here is the recipe for Sugar Water that  I found
online which is use every year :






MATTHEW 6:26
Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?


HIS EYE ON THE SPARROW

EARTH DAY-HELLO!!

JOB 12:7-9
7 “But now ask the beasts, and they will teach you;
And the birds of the air, and they will tell you;
8 Or speak to the earth, and it will teach you;
And the fish of the sea will explain to you.
9 Who among all these does not know
That the hand of the Lord has done this,



HOW EXCELLENT IS YOUR NAME

EASTER, THE PASSION

PAINTING  BY JUAN  MORLETE RUIZ. 1713-1772


LUKE  23:44-47 44 

Now it was about the sixth 
hour, and there was darkness 
over all the earth until the ninth
hour. 

45 

Then the sun was darkened, and
the veil of the temple was torn in
two.

46 
And when Jesus had cried out 
witha loud voice, He said,“Father,
into Your hands I commit My spirit.
Having said this,He breathed His last.

47 
So when the centurion saw what had happened, he glorified God, saying, “Certainly this was a righteous Man!”




EASTER. BLESSED PURPLE

Image
The Bible tells us that the color 
purple represents royalty.During
Easter many churches build large
crosses with purple cloth draped 
over them.  Jesus is the King of 
Kings, so it is appropriate for to
show purple majesty.  The Bible 
book of Acts 16 tells us about
purple cloth  being  sold by a 
woman named Lydia.The book
of Proverbs 31 says, "she wears
clothing made of linen and purple.

EASTER EGG DECOR

Image
I enjoyed dyeing eggs for Easter
as much as my boys did.I told my 
boys that the Easter celebrations
was more than the egg coloring,
the egg hunt, and  the  baskets 
of candy. I told them that many
years ago the hard boiled egg 
had a special meaning.The hard
shell of the egg represented the
tomb Jesus was buried in.  The 
cracking of the egg was about 
Jesus' resurrection. The church
used to dye the eggs red to be
a symbol the blood of Jesus.

In the past I used vinegar and
bottles of food coloring. There
are many methods for coloring
eggs available now. Check out
some these methods:

New method for boiling eggs:

Gently place fresh eggs in a pot
of cold water. Completely cover 
the eggs with water.  Cook them
over medium high heat. Add 1/8 
tsp salt to the water and place lid
on the pot. When the water starts
to boil, turn off the heat.  Let the
eggs stay in the covered pot for
10 minutes. Be Safe: Keep eggs 
in refrigerator.

Egg test:

Whirl it fast on a table. If it 
turns fast, it is hard boiled.

EASTER BONNETS HERE!!

Image
I go a Center for Active Adults. Most of us are 
ages 60 through 80.  There are a couple of 90
year old men there too. We are always having celebrations for birthdays and holidays.We are celebrating Easter this week. We do remember
the reason for the season: HE IS RISEN!. We
are having an Easter luncheon. The director of 
the center thought it would be nice to have an
Easter Bonnet Contest this week also.  I have 
been searching on the Internet  ideas for my 
Easter bonnet. I'll try to upload pictures of our
Easter bonnets later.

I didn't realize some towns still have elaborate
Easter celebrations that include wearing Easter Bonnets.  It seems that men and children get
involved too!

Please look at some of their Easter Bonnets!
