Real Conversation…New Life

Dear Holy Spirit,

I love you, thank you for showing me Jesus, being my Comforter, and  being so patient and open with me. I love You, thank You for loving me.

I’m reading about You and I’m becoming so acquainted and familiar with You. I’m getting to know. We are partners, one in Christ… YES IM GETTING TO KNOW  YOU!!!! I’ve got to know You so I can totally rely on You… I want You to be able to trust me in every temptation let my heart be clean of all lust and idolatry so that satan has no ground in me like my Lord Jesus.

Wow, I’m getting to know You….wow. Thank You Lord…

“Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him. (John 14:23 AMP)”

“Dwell in Me, and I will dwell in you. [Live in Me, and I will live in you.] Just as no branch can bear fruit of itself without abiding in (being vitally united to) the vine, neither can you bear fruit unless you abide in Me. I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing. (John 15:4-5 AMP)”

“If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you. (John 15:7 AMP)”

John 14:13,14

– whatever I ask in Jesus name

Psalm 91

– Dwell, abide  in the secret place of the most high

So….Proverbs 4:23

Stand against covetousness, idolatry, lust, pride, and rebellion. And any desire or pursuit that opposes the will of God….stand, pray, and worship.

I hungered for acceptance and freedom and You have allowed me to see and receive. Now I have asked for a real courtship

And now You are wooing me to know You, I’m hungry to know You….. and by Your SPIRIT You are revealing Yourself to me…

John 16

Hey there, happy Thursday! As you go about completing your tasks for the day, I wanted to share this devotional that I completed with you about waiting, accomplishments, and Gods timing in all things.

I had to look in the mirror and accept how much control I had to release in my life and the lives of my family.

Matthew 6, and many other Bible references revealed how little control I had, or was trying to have, and that I really needed to let go of the illusion of control and COMMIT to believing God.

I hope you will take this journey and make it your own!

Enjoy!!

Think On These Things: Health Report

Infused Water Tips

Infused water is the process of adding fruits, vegetables, and herbs to your water, then letting these ingredients flavor the water. In addition to providing a delicious flavor with a wide range of combination options, you also get some of the nutrients from the produce and herbs, which further improves how healthy your water is. Infused water is easy to do, but there are a few things you should know first. Here are some things to keep in mind when you are making your infused water.

Types of Water to Use

The first thing you should know about making infused water is that filtered water is always better. Filtered water is cleaner, so this is really going to improve the overall quality and flavor of your infused water. Since not everyone has access to enough filtered water to fill infused water pitchers every time, tap water is okay when necessary, but do try to get filtered water if at all possible.

When choosing your water, you should only use room temperature or cold water. Avoid warm or hot water, since it can cause the produce to fall apart at a rapid rate, which reduces how many nutrients are going to end up in your water.

Choose Organic When Possible

If at all possible, try to select organic fruits and vegetables. These can often be found in the produce of your supermarket, but a better option might be to get them from a weekly CSA, farmerĂ­s market, or contacting local farmers directly. This allows you to get fresh fruits and veggies that you know were grown locally without added fertilizers and other chemicals. Organic produce does tend to provide a better flavor for infused water. However, the most important part is having healthy water with your favorite fruits and veggies, so if you canĂ­t use organic, donĂ­t worry too much about it!

How to Prep the Ingredients

After you select the ingredients you want to use for your infused water, you will then need to prep them before putting them into the pitcher. You should always rinse the fruits and vegetables to make sure no chemicals are left on them. Even if you bought them organic, it is still a good idea to rinse them and make sure they are clean. If you are using herbs, you want to crush them with a muddler since this will help to release the oils. The exception is when the herb is leafy, such as with mint or basil.

Most fruits and vegetables need to be cut at least in half before being put in the pitcher so that they can release their flavors. Hard fruits and vegetables like cucumber and apples need to be cut into thin slices since they can take longer to release flavor to the water. With berries and citrus fruit, they are softer, so just cutting them in half or quarters should be fine.

What to Make Your Infused Water In

By this point, you are ready to start putting your infused water together. Before you add in the water, make sure you have the right container. While you can technically use anything, a glass pitcher is usually recommended. However, regardless of which way you go, make sure it is BPA-free and food-safe. Many plastic pitchers are not ideal and wonĂ­t keep the water fresh, but in the end it is really up to you. There are also pitchers and cups used especially for infusing. They typically have a long and narrow section in the middle where you put your herbs and fruit, with holes or slots so the flavor can be released. You can use these, but they arenĂ­t necessary.

How Long to Soak the Produce

When making infused water, you will add the produce and herbs first, then add your room temperature or cold water on top. You then want to let the water infuse so that you can get good flavors and nutrients from the fruits and vegetables being used. If you are leaving it out on the counter, this is usually done in about 2 hours. Otherwise, wait 4-6 hours if keeping it in the refrigerator for the infusing process. If you leave it overnight, it will be super flavorful.

When the Water Should Be Enjoyed

The ideal time to drink infused water is within 24-48 hours after the infusing process is complete. It is usually best to drink it the same day, but at least try to drink it within the first couple days. Waiting 3 days is okay, but donĂ­t leave it for longer than that. Make sure you are not leaving the fruits and vegetables in the water for this long though. They should be removed and only the water should remain in the pitcher for this long. Citrus fruits will remain fresher for longer, while melons are going to get soft and mushy quickly.

Also keep in mind that if you drink the infused water the same day, you can usually refill it 2-3 times with the produce in the pitcher or cup and still get good flavor from it.

One goal, one passion – Floam!

Floam is a slimy substance with polystyrene beads in it that kids can mold into shapes. You can sculpt with it or use it to coat other objects.

In 1994, Nickelodeon and Mattel first manufactured Floam, originally called “bubble-gak”, a compound composed of “microbeads” in a foam-like substance. It came in different colors. RoseArt sold Floam for a very brief time in 2002. It was sold once again from 2005–2007 but without Nickelodeon branding.

Floam is also one of those therapeutic substances that can improve dexterity, hand/finger strength, and fulfill sensory stimulus needs for children of adults with those specific areas of need.
