Say It!-I love You

image

Often time we assume that the people who are close to us should automatically know how we feel about them. Often men are categorized as not being good at expressing themselves as if connects to their feelings. Some of most amazing people and me I know don’t have a problem with that at all. Saying I love you when it’s least expected can calm so many things in a persons life. Saying I love you when the person is acting in such a way, that it seems something else should be said-this too can make a difference.

The power of love is evident when we look at how it changed our lives, once we were introduced to the love of God. Even thoes who are good at showing their love still should aim to use the words. Today people are so wrapped in thinking that they need to be in a relationship to feel loved. I decided to make love cards and scrolls for the people I knew who wasn’t in a relationship. I wanted to remind them that they’re loved and someone is thinking about them today. That type of consideration for another person comes from God. And because He loves them so much he placed them on someone else’s heart- to say I love you.

Prayer: God I thank you for another day that you have allowed us to see, we know that some didn’t make it but you allowed us to. We thank you. Lord thank you for your love and forgiveness. Thank you for loving us even in our unlovable times. Thank you for showing us through the sacrifice of your only son. God I come to you right now in the name of Jesus, asking that you mend the broken hearted today. God I ask that the lonely is visited, the hurting is compforted, the mistreated is appreciated, the depressed is lifted. Touch us and help us to touch someone else through your love. God we thank you that when relationships fade,friends and family let us down, kids dissapoint, choloates are gone and others expressions of love deminishes- your love is there. Whenever we need to hear we are loved we can hear you say, Beloved( just be loved of God)!

10 Awesomely Inexspensive Ways To Show Love

rd

 

1.  DIY Love Coupons

I’m sure you know just about all your sweetheart’s favorite things. How about making up coupons with no expiration date of course, offering freebies! Anything from a free week of cleaning, free 30 min massage, or free weekend getaway.  Check out the love coupons at your local Barnes and Noble for less than $ 15.  Better than that make them yourselves for free! All it takes is a little creativity for a nice presentation. Now who wouldn’t love that, a gift that keeps on giving. Making it personal shows you really considered them and things they enjoy.

2. Quality Love Time

A movie night with just the two of you sounds doable right?  Gather the movies (all about mushy love stories of course ;=) Set up the snacks, this time make it special with specialty drinks, chocolate covered strawberries, and pretzels plus an entrée from their favorite eatery. Grab a throw to cuddle warm and close and there you have it a nice setting with no distractions, just you and that special someone spending quality love time.

3. Simply Say The Words

Sometimes simply saying the words  “I Love You” to that special person is taken to heart, and for some means so much more than any thing you could do and any gift you could give.

4.  A Night of Dancing

It doesn’t matter if you can’t dance, both of you get dressed, set a playlist of mixed songs in advance.  Invite your mate to a night of fun and dancing right at home.  If you really want to make it a night to remember choreograph a dance just for their eyes only. Make this a gift to be remembered.

5.  Special Friendship

Frame a picture of you and your friend give it to them with a hand written letter telling them what you love about the special friendship you both share.

6. C.D.

Make a C.D. of songs you know your loved one would enjoy and will minister to their spirit. Add a beautiful handmade or purchase card to go with it.

7. Plant Seeds of Love

If your available and want to sow some seeds of love, offer to cook or watch the children for a married couple to allow more quality time to spend with their sweetheart.

8. Host A Friends To Love Dinner

Make a simple but delicious dinner and invite friends over to share. You can decorate with paper heart streamers, and a few balloons.  Go around and share aloud with each friend why you love having them as your friend

9.  Love You

Spend some special time loving on yourself.  Enjoy an evening at home giving yourself a facial, a pedicure, or even wash your hair. Watch that movie are read that book you hadn’t had time to read. Write affirmations of love and read them aloud to yourself. Enjoy loving on you because you deserve it.

 10.  Spread The LOVE

How about simply telling someone about the Love of God, that will be the greatest gift for one to receive, and it’s absolutely FREE!!

Sugar & Spice…..And Everything Nice

How to Make Your Own Sugar Scrubs

image

Wouldn’t it be great to give your skin a little love? How about making your own sugar scrub? You can also make small jars as gifts for friends. A sugar scrub makes your skin feel nice (Sugar has natural relaxing and soothing properties, and it also helps circulation and exfoliates your skin.), but purchasing sugar scrubs can become expensive. Luckily there is an easy way to make a sugar scrub at home, and all you need is a few household products which can make a sugar scrub that will give you great results like a store bought one (but without the price)!

  1. 1 image
    Pick a jar for your sugar scrub. Almost any jar would be fine. You can get one that locks or one that has a screw on lid. If you are a clumsy person like I am at times, use a plastic jar instead of glass, because this scrub will be put near the shower or bath tub, if you so desire. Plastic has its disadvantages too. A plastic jar will absorb any essential oils you add into the scrub, and that means that you can never use the jar in any other purpose. Make sure whatever jar you are using is clean. A plastic ziplock container will work well too. Even a little sandwich bag works.

  2. image
    Gather your ingredients and select your sugar. Sugar scrubs have a few benefits over salt scrubs but salt scrubs can be used as well. I try to keep a balance between the two. Sugar granules are smaller and gentler. Preventing small tears in the skin. Sugars natural humectants properties are more hydrating. While overuse of salt scrubs can strip the skin of its natural oils sugar scrubs are more hydrating. Brown sugar is softer than granulated sugar so you can use it on your face and for sensitive skin. Raw sugar is naturally coarse and suggested only for the body.

  3. Pick an oil and (or) spice. Any kind will do, but a few skin nutritive oils are almond oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, safflower oil, jojoba oil, avocado oil, peanut oil, rosehip oil, sesame oil, macadamia nut oil, sunflower oil and olive oil. However, you shouldn’t have to go to the grocery store right now to buy these oils if you don’t have them.Even cheap canola oil, which is not fancy, works well too! But one oil you should avoid is baby oil, which contains mineral oil (a by-product of petroleum) because it doesn’t absorb into skin and when it evaporates, this oil makes your skin feel even dryer than before. Also baby/mineral oil clogs your pores. Spices like ginger, citrus,grapefruit and orange are my favs.
  4.  Fill the jar with oil until it is almost full.
  5. Mix your oil and sugar together with a spoon.
    Add a few drops of essential oils (SPICES)into the mixture. Choose a scent that you like. Some great ones are lavender (relaxing), peppermint (energizing), orange, lime/lemon, sandalwood, and vanilla. Or you can try extracts, like vanilla, almond, peppermint and coconut. Stir the salt scrub after you add the essential oil. If your anything like me I like color…. So add a few drops of food coloring to spruce things up a bit.

  6. Enjoy your homemade sugar scrub.Use your sugar scrub or decorate the jar with a ribbon and give it to a friend. Sugar scrubs are great to use in the winter. Now because it exfoliates the top layer of skin, it is important to follow up with sunscreen if going out during daylight hours. Hope you have some sweet results

The only way to get love is to be lovable. It's very irritating if you have a lot of money. You'd like to think you could write a check: 'I'll buy a million dollars' worth of love.' But it doesn't work that way. The more you give love away, the more you get. - Warren Buffet
