I get these great little emails everyday with an inspiration quote and a scripture. The scripture was
Galations 6:9-10 and I quote "And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity let us do good unto all men, especially into those who are of the household of faith." This was for me was an answered prayer. There were other things that I desired to do. So many things. All good and valuable things. However I just didn't ahve enough time and this one thing I just couldn't seem to get around to. So after that I just quit feeling guilty and really delighted in doing service for my family as well as others. And the funny thing about it was as I spent all this time doing service joyfully I recieved not only the time but the inspiration for that thing I wanted to do. I can't help but feel much more productive doing it this way. And let me try to explain... If I would have ignored the call for service and forced this thing I wanted to do then I problably wouldn't have done a quality job because of guilt becoming distracting and tension. However by "reaping in my due season:" not only was I able to accomplish some of my goal I was happy in all that I did.

So here is a few things I did. I made body wash for Chris to try and dish soap my lovely new friend and neighbor Michelle is trying. I saw her use it I think it makes a better hand soap than dish soap. Chris I will have to wait and see if he has hives or dry skin. But it is so empowering to be able to make these things myself and do it for so little.
So something else I got to do was show a new friend and sister out in Caldwell how to make detergant and other things. And in the process got to make a new friend and and sweet family. Thanks for having me Megan.

So thats my rant for now.
