Bible Lesson

 
Remember what Jesus said: 'Goats on the left, sheep on the right
(Matthew 25:33).
                                                
Jesus also told Peter that if he wanted to catch fish do it from the right side of the boat.   They did and filled the boat with fish.
 
John 21:6 (NIV) ... He said, "Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some." When they did, they were unable to
haul the net in because of the large number of fish."
 
Origin of Left & Right...
I have often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the "right"  and Liberal Socialists are called the "left".
 
By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:   Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV) - "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the
heart of the fool to the left."
Thus sayeth the Lord.   Amen.
 
It surely can't get any simpler than that.
 
Spelling Lesson :
The last four letters in American..........  I Can
The last four letters in Republican........ I Can
The last four letters in  Democrats......... Rats
 
End of lesson !  ....Test to follow on November 6, 2016 .
 
Remember,  November 2016 is to be set aside as rodent removal month.

#radhabeauty Radha Beauty Fractionated Coconut Oil Review



What is it?
Fractionated coconut oil is coconut oil that has been processed or “fractioned” to create a very shelf-stable oil. The fraction of the oil that is used is very high in saturated fat, and this product can be used in a wide variety of ways.
Coconut oil itself is extracted from the meat of the coconut.
 In pure form, coconut oil is solid at room temperature, but when refined or fractionated, it becomes liquid at room temperature.
The big advantage to fractionated coconut oil over
regular coconut oil is that it is very shelf-stable.


The most common use of fractionated coconut oil is as a carrier oil for essential oils and massageIt can also be used as an intensive face moisturizer, a very versatile oil base for making body scrubs, after shave and other body and hair care products including soap. You can even cook with it!


I like to use it for face and eye makeup remover. It leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and does not clog my pores. I also love it as a moisturizer for my hands.  Only a small amount is needed and absorbs well into the skin. When hand washing the oil doesn't wash off easily, which is perfect for us moms who seem to be constantly washing our hands.
But
my most favorite use I found for Radha Beauty Fractionated Coconut Oil  was to use it after shaving my legs. I mixed a couple of drops of Lavender Essential Oil into it and my legs were left feeling smooth and smelling lovely.

Product Description

ONLY ONE INGREDIENT - 100% Pure Fractionated Coconut Oil - No Fillers. The Highest Quality carrier oil available. 16 OUNCE BOTTLE!

ODORLESS, NON-GREASY & COLORLESS - This wonderful fractionated Oil is always Liquid, Odorless, Colorless, Non Greasy & Non Staining

BEST CARRIER OIL for Massage, Therapeutic Recipes & Essential Oils. It also has natural antioxidant and disinfecting properties and does not clog pores. It is an extremely versatile oil that can be used for making anything from bug repellent to hair serum.

VERY LONG SHELF LIFE - Does not go rancid and can also be used to prevent other oils from going rancid



Radha Beauty Fractionated Coconut Oil
 is available on Amazon

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.


Ultra Snuggle Spring Scents Liquid Fabric Softener Review



I was given the opportunity to try Ultra Snuggle Liquid Fabric Softener in their new Fresh Spring Flowers Scent.
It couldn't arrived at a more appropriate time.
With the weather warming I love to hang my
laundry outside on the line.
 
 
Hanging laundry outside provides a clean scent but lets face it,
 it can come in pretty stiff. Now this was the norm while I was growing up, but my kids are quick to say how ''scratchy'' everything is. Yes, I have to admit I have gotten used to softer clean laundry too. So with that being said, I always use Snuggle Fabric Softener.
 I was excited to try their new scent Fresh Spring Flowers.
 
 
And like all the other Snuggle products it did not disappoint!
It left our laundry feeling nice, soft and cling free.
 The scent is marvelously springy!
The lush floral scent isn't too strong nor too weak
 and lasts up to 30 days.
 
 
Nothing feels better or more comforting than
Snuggly soft fresh smelling clean laundry.
I love that the scent lasts, a big plus for me,
 since I'm a scentaholic. :)
 
Advantages:

  • 90 loads
  • 30 days of freshness
  • With fresh release
  • Safe for all washing machines
  •  

Ultra Snuggle Liquid Fabric Softener in Fresh Spring Flowers is perfect for my family and I'm sure it would be for yours too!  
 
 I received this product for free from Snuggle bear Den Community
in return of my honest review.

Amara Organics Retinol Serum Review #amaraorganicsretinolserum




I'm not new when it comes to Retinol. I've been using it for quite some time. So when Amara Organics offered me a chance to try their Retinol Serum which is 2.5%.  Higher than I've had before,
I jumped at the chance!
Retinol is the only beauty ingredient with studied and proven results. Retinol is designed to improve skin texture,
fade spots and improve wrinkles.
How you say?
Retinol works on a molecular level to repair skin
and stimulate collagen, resulting in firmer, smoother, wrinkle-free skin and continues providing better results the longer you use it.
Retinol is the #1 dermatologist-recommended anti-aging ingredient for a reason, because it works!

Product Description
Our Powerful Yet Gentle Retinol Serum
Provides The Best Results:

-Repairs skin on a molecular level to erase fine lines and wrinkles
-Stimulates collagen for firmer, smoother skin
-Speeds up skin cell turnover to fade brown spots, discoloration, and acne scars
-Improves texture and tone for a smoother, softer, more radiant complexion
-Unclogs pores to clear up acne and prevent future breakouts
Natural, Vegan, and Cruelty-Free

We use only the best, natural plant-based ingredients available,

with no parabens, no alcohol, and no animal testing.
Made in the USA.


Ingredients
Deionized Water, Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf (Aloe), Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (Botanical Hyaluronic Acid), Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel), Pentylene Glycol, Phospholipids, Retinol, Polysorbate 20, Potassium Phosphate, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Carrageenan Gum, Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Oil), Triticum Vulgare (Wheat Germ Oil), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Organic Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea), Wildcrafted Resina Propoli (Propolis), Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Ethyl Hexyl Glycerin, Organic Gotu Kola Extract, Organic Horsetail Plant Extract, Organic Geranium Extract, Organic Dandelion Extract.


Directions


Apply a small amount of serum with fingertips to entire face, neck, and décolletage after cleansing and toning. Allow to dry. Follow with a moisturizer. Apply at night and use sunscreen daily as retinol increases sun sensitivity. For first time users, apply every other night for first few weeks until skin adjusts.



My Thoughts 
  
I think what sold me was how my previous results, (from previous Retinol Serums), were vastly improved even more in just a few days. My skin feels even smoother, more hydrated and has plumped up filling in more of those pesky wrinkles.


One or two pumps (love the pump by the way) is all you need, no sticky feeling or strong odor. It is slightly thicker than previously tried serums but still absorbs quickly, which I like. 

I wash my face, apply the Retinol Serum, then my moisturizer.  I do this morning and night.
 



I also LOVE that it can be used all over including the neck, and décolletage.
Amara Organics Retinol Serum is a definite must
for younger looking skin!
You can find Amara Organics Retinol Serum here.
