Joys in the journey... toxin free gifts

This morning (the day after St. Patrick's day) I shared a small and significant part of the day I had ...although it started with me finding my sunglasses were totally twisted, it had an encouraging undertone to it all day. How can you not be grateful when you notice all the wonderful support and grace that God provides...

"Good morning!  I don't know about any lucky Irish folks (well, I do know a few... ;) ), but yesterday was an amazing day.

  I stopped in at a store to grab a treat before meeting with some awesome souls and as I was in line to pay, I overheard a sales lady and gentleman tying to figure out which was the least toxic cleaners on the shelf to use...my body started moving toward them before my mind finally decided to give up my "next" spot in line...I walked over and joined the conversation. I could already tell they were making good changes as they were unscented (LOL the people) and sharing about what natural things they already use. They shared that they have serious symptoms from the chemicals in products....and then I shared the same.

Their eyes popped WIDE OPEN with excitement and encouragement! (Insert heart-melt-moment) They asked what I use and I shared...AND THEN...to top it off, they both gave me a hug of sincere gratitude.  The relief and ease that I got to bring to their lives...PLUS I found some Borax! (I was SO excited!) All that from just being me ! Thank you God for "invisible" gifts ...

Strength in weaknesses...understanding one another


This is my morning post from Facebook as I reflect on living with chemical sensitivities and not only how we come across to others in how we respond, but how, through perseverance and faith, we can shine light into one another's lives as well...

"Good morning! I experienced a highly irrate and agitated woman...she was difficult for most people to communicate with. And, in a short moment, we once had a conversation where I saw how intelligent and aware she was...

Well, years later, she remembered that little moment and shared her gratitude for that connection...her apology for her abrasiveness. ..and that she experiences sensitivities. ..to chemicals...environmental, etc....and I do...and send has asked for tips as I come across them.

From this, I have been blessed with an understanding...
...go for that "moment" of connection , no matter how small (with loving intention)
...we never have the fullness of knowing into the lives of others (and sends sumptuous interrupts connection...)
...we are all connected in more ways than one, and to serve a greater purpose...
...in MY "weakness", I am made strong and designed for building up others...
...there is a Great service that I am here for...

So thank you again, dear God...beyond my understanding, you bring me to the right place and right time to share encouragement in ways I would never have guessed ...
