Recently, I needed something to help my skin, which has just been horrible all year. I’ve searched and searched for the right product. Three days ago I stumbled, once again on the “Tanya” theory. Tanya was my beautiful sister-in-law. She had been taught well by her grandmother and her mother to save everything until later. “Put it in the cedar chest and save it for later. Shortly before her death, which happened way too soon, she told me if she could do it all over again, she would enjoy everything–every day.
A few days ago while cleaning the tub, I saw a gift of beautiful and expensive bath soap I had tucked away to save until “later. It had been given to me last year on my birthday by my other sister-in-law, Diane. The gift did not come easy for Diane. She lives on a fixed income.
The bath soap turned out to be the perfect thing needed to help me deal with my skin problems. I had it in my procession for a year, a year I really needed it.
Matthew 6:8 says: This is your father you are dealing with and he knows better than you what you need. With a God like this loving you, you can pray very simply. Like this: Our Father, who art in heaven, reveal who you are. Set the world right. Do what’s best as above–so below. Keep us alive with three square meals. Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others. Keep us safe from our self and from the Devil. You’re in charge! You can do anything you want! You’re ablaze in beauty! Yes! Yes! Yes.
Thank you, Tanya, for reminding me. Thank you, Diane, for sharing with me. Thank you, God, for supplying all my needs.
Happy New Year!
