I have a confession

I have a confession. I'm addicted to lip balm. I have been for as long as I can remember. These are the ones that I could grab in less than a minute. I have them everywhere. Purse. Desk. Dresser. Kitchen. Car. Pocket.
And these are all natural lip balms (well, mostly natural anyway....some are a little iffy). I made the switch over a decade ago when I realized that all of the gunk in them was probably sitting undigested in my gut.
Not that I eat the stuff. I just like to taste it when it's on my lips and I'm sure that some of it gets inside.

Some of my favorites that I've found over the years are:
Alba nourishing coconut cream lip balm. This stuff is fantastic. It's got good coverage and tastes wonderful. It's truly a balm and not a gloss so it's a little thicker than some others. No shine at all with this one.

Lemongrass Spa pomegranate lip balm. Of all of the ones I've tried this is my favorite for flavor. It has a strong flavor that lasts for a long time. This goes on very smooth and has a tiny amount of shine. It is nice that this is also one that I sell through Lemongrass Spa. The only thing I don't like about it is that the tube is rather small for the $4.50 price tag. 

Ganache for Lips. Yes, you read that right. Chocolate ganache for lips. It tastes amazing. Full of chocolate and yum. Ooooh. I just checked their website, they now have nine flavors. Because I need more. Ha!

EOS lip balm. This stuff is just fun because it comes in a sphere. It's yummy I'm just not sure how truly natural it is. The only problem with this is that it doesn't fit in a pocket so you can't carry it around if you need to. The awkward shape means that it has to go in a bag. These I generally leave in the car or around the house.

So there you have it. My little primer on lip balm. And while I admit that I'm addicted, I really don't think it's a problem. I'm good with it.

Wait until you learn about the nail polish addiction I have. Oooooh the glitter!!

Small Changes: Peanut Butter and Jelly

I eat the same thing for breakfast every single day. Most people think it's weird, I just think of it as fuel to get my day started. I was never big on cereal, mostly because I don't like milk. Other than a little splash of it in my tea I don't drink it.

I start my day with an organic brown rice cake with peanut butter and jelly on it. It works for me. The peanut butter provides protein and the jelly provides the yum.

I prefer the Lundberg Farms brown rice cakes. Brown rice is a good carb, white rice is a bad carb. White rice has no nutritional value and turns to sugar in your system. Brown rice is a whole grain and is a much better choice. 
I get the lightly salted ones. I find these in the organic food section of my favorite grocery store.

Now, let's look at some peanut butter and jelly. For the peanut butter I just chose Skippy because it's a brand that everyone is familiar with. I prefer the natural peanut butters, but if you don't like the texture of them and …

It's Not A Blessing if you Had to Sin to Get it

Pretty strong words but also very true. I once heard a man say his girlfriend was, "A gift from God." 

Except she wasn't because she was still married to someone else. Glenn wiggled in and turned her head and snatched her away from her husband and children.

How dare he think God had anything to do with that.

He doesn't work that way. If you want His blessings then you need to walk closely with Him. He will never bless sin. He can't. He is unable to. Sin is what separates us from God. 

Glenn may think he is living a blessed life as he runs on emotions and feelings but nothing like this will prosper. In the end it will lead to destruction. 

It already has. The family he destroyed will never be the same. 

Small Changes: Shredded Cheese

Today we're not just talking cheese, we're talking shredded cheese. This is the time of year when everyone has a party or picnic to go to, and most of the time you need to bring a dish of some kind. Many of these dishes call for cheese.

Sidenote: I'm so in love with cheese that I have to restrict it from my diet 99% of the time. I cannot be trusted with the creamy goodness that is cheese. Colby. Cheddar. Mozzarella. Gouda. Gorgonzola. Monterey Jack. Cream. Pepper Jack. Sigh. I love cheese, but it does not love me. It tempts me ever so. Today at lunch I splurged and order chicken parm. I only ate about half of it and that should last me several months. My body works much better when I stay away from cheese and dairy in general. Though, surprisingly, ice cream does not affect me in a bad way. Hmmmm.....

Anyway, back to cheese. Many recipes call for shredded cheese and the food industry has listened and provided a myriad of choices in the shredded cheese department and they hav…
