Lavender Has Many Uses

Lavender is amazing with the numerous ways its fabulous buds, stems, full fragrances and deep lavender colors can be used. We think of lavender in candles, soaps, perfumes, sprays, bath products and such, but it is also a culinary delight in the kitchen and can even be used to bathe your dog!

The old-fashioned harvesting of acres of lavender fields in late June and July happens when silver buds fill up with fragrant oil. When ripened into a vibrant lavender color, the buds and stems are removed, preserved in cool water, and placed in cool and dark barns to dry for weeks. After sorted and cleaned, they go to specialty kitchens and workshops, where hand-made unique products and gifts are created. 

Some examples of exquisite lavender products for your own use or as a perfect gift are below.



Lavender Mini Sampler

This beautiful basket of four favorites allows an enjoyable soaking with a tub aroma ball followed by a massage and body oil. A sachet can fill a special drawer with a wonderful fragrance, and a citrus lavender fragrance melt will give your home a heavenly smell. 

Lavender Sugar

A seven-ounce jar of sugar infused with lavender buds adds a sweet and flavorful twist to baked goods, especially Creme Brulee and shortbread cookies. 

Lavender Dryer Bags

This set of three bags filled with aromatic lavender buds adds a long-lasting aroma to your laundry for 30 to 40 dryer cycles each. 

Lavender Neck Wrap

Delivering the right therapeutic temperature, heat this aromatic wrap in the microwave for 30 seconds or chill it in the freezer.

Lavender Dog Bath

Yes, even the dog needs to smell good! The gentle scent also relaxes a dog that is not happy about taking a bath.

Thoroughly Cleaned By His Blood


Happy are we who believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ, our Redeemer, our Ultimate Savior. He is the Lamb who cleansed us and redeemed us from eternal condemnation. Everybody knew this truth yet only few believes...

How many of us are thoroughly convinced that Jesus paid all our sins through His dying on the cross? How many of us believes that our good works has nothing to do with our salvation but rather it is just the result of our faith in God?

We need not be crucified literally on the cross again because Jesus Christ already did that in our behalf over two thousand years ago.

God completely redeemed us and all we have to do is to put our complete trust in Him.

Are you still not convinced? Read your Bible so you will know.

Be blessed everyone!

Welcome the New Puppy

Celebrate the arrival of a new puppy in the home by making dog gift baskets. These baskets can include almost anything that you can imagine for a new puppy, and you can make other ones for pets in the home before the puppy arrives. Make sure the basket that you make has items that are for the gender of the new family member. 

There are a few ways that you can start making the basket. You can get a plain wicker basket, or you can use something that will also be used with the animal, such as a bed or a bag to hold all of its supplies. Start with the treats for the puppy. These should be something soft for the puppy to chew on while having vitamins and nutrients that the dog might not get from food. You can add a small bag of food in the basket, but most people know that puppies like to plat as well. Some of the toys that you add are balls, bones, stuffed animals and squeakers. You can also include grooming supplies and items to make the puppy feel secure at night in the new home. If you are making a basket for someone else, don't forget to wrap it in some way so that everything stays in one place

The Joy (and Pain) Felt by a Teacher

My first-time experience as an adviser to a graduating class was indeed full of bitter-sweet memories.

Bitter because you cannot deny the fact that there were those students who failed short of my expectations- that is instead of getting serious with their studies, they engaged themselves in rubbish things thus affecting their supposedly brighter future.

Sweet because these students trusted me that much that they never have any second thought in sharing their life to me. They seek refuge and advice from me and I consider that sweet because not all teachers were given that opportunity. Sweet because through these students, I was able to value things that is more important than earning a living- that is giving premium time to my kids and guiding them until their age of independence.

Those ten months of teaching and sometimes being a parent to them was not an easy task. I often caught myself unguarded every time I heard sad stories experienced by them with their families. I have a student who was forced to work because the parents could not afford to send her to school anymore and since she needs to attend to her work most of her time than to her studies-it truly affects her grades. There were also those students who thought getting in love is the best and most exciting part of their lives and get impregnated to my great dismay. There was also this student who was not able to march during the graduation because of financial constraint.

As a teacher, that was a whole lot of a burden because when I was at their age, I also experienced some of their problems. I can actually relate to most of them but the only difference is that I have this definite goal in my life to finish my studies and I am equally blessed because I have a mother who is willing to sacrifice a lot just to meet this goal. Sadly, some of my students need to survive on their own-without a parent to help them. That is why I cannot expect superb school performance because their minds are too preoccupied as to what to do next in order to survive.


Nevertheless, I am still thankful to God for the strength and wisdom that He gave upon me in becoming not only a teacher, but also a friend, a mother and a sister to my students.
