Hey My Radicalnites!
Radical moment of the week: I went back to my old elementary school this week. I have a nephew who is in the first grade and who is having problems doing his work. I have to admit it was a blast from the past, to see old teachers, old classrooms, the old playground, some things have changed while others remained the same.
Visiting my nephew class gave me a refresher of things that are now for me second nature–things like counting by 10s, phonics, and punctuation marks. Hearing them blend sounds to make new words and learning new facts about their favorite zoo animals was fun to watch.
This week taught me that to go forward, you have to to back to the basics. For example, when my nephew got stumped on a word, I would get him to say each letter, The sound for each letter, then we blend each sound to make the word. The same goes for us, as Christians, when we get stumped by life’s trials and tribulations, we need not give up, instead we have to go to God’s word, pray, and believe. Blending our faith and God’s promises will always equal success.
Beauty sidenote: So, I’ve been reading a lot of different magazines lately and I’ve come across this DIY beauty scrub that I wanted to share:
1 Tablespoon honey (dark, organic preferred)
1 Tablespoon sugar
This was called a facial scrub. I used it on ky face but I don’t really think it was a good idea to have that much sweetness that close to my tastebuds. I used it again on my feet, which I liked much better. My skin felt really soft and smooth.
