Day 2248 – Shaving Cream And Apple Pie

Today, I randomly read the back of the shaving cream in our bathroom. And I quote:
1. Wash face with warm water.
2. Shake can and hold upright.
3. Press top to release lather.

Shaving Tips:
– Use gentle strokes with a sharp razor to avoid irritation.
– Rinse the blade often during shaving.

I read this with an air of pride and thought, who doesn’t know how to do this? Can I challenge you to think about how many times you ask this on a daily basis of others? Lord knows I would not want to blog honestly about that! Oy!

Here’s the truth of the matter. Everyone who has ever shaved had to read those instructions for the first time. At some point, it wasn’t known knowledge to you.

I think we can also forget to take things down to the basics.

The sermon in church today was on the gospel and how powerful it is. How often we overlook the power in the simple message:
God created everything, including man. Man sinned. God can’t be around sin. So God made a way – He sent His Son, Jesus, to earth. Jesus lived a perfect life. He died a perfect death. He took on ALL of our sins and paid the penalty in that death. He then rose from the dead, defeating death. He ascended to heaven and He waits for those who believe in Him.

Friends, don’t forget the simple. Don’t look down on those who don’t know everything you know. We all start somewhere.

I made an apple pie for the first time yesterday. Hey, we all start somewhere.


Day 1248 – Wedding Album Design = No Baking For Me

Today I spent most of the day creating the Thorsett wedding album! It’s amazing! Can’t wait to get that printed!

Yesterday, I had HIGH hopes of making an apple pie tonight. I even asked my friends for recipes and advice. I was pretty excited about it too!

But then 8 p.m. rolls around, the album is complete…I have no apples….and no energy.

Thankfully, Wegmans is 10 minutes away and have AMAZING pies in stock!
