Family Business

8DEDC00A-0BC3-4AF6-9138-73038A33FADAFamily Business

As a father of a blended family of 7 children, I know how quickly they grow up and how your time is the best possible gift you can give them. Most of us have such busy work schedules that limit our quality time, but I have found a skincare business that allows me flexibility to work on my time and earn residual income. July is our Rodan and Fields title month and as an incentive to join my team, I am offering anyone that signs up, with me with one of the two larger business kits, $100 cash back. We are the number one skincare company in North America and Australia and are poised to launch into Asia and Europe soon. Join me on this journey at http://www.TheBern.myrandf.biz

River of Life

9B720D0B-7412-4DB8-9250-02F5DD074F72“Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb”
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭22:1‬ ‭ESV‬‬

River of Life

Have you ever looked at a river and wondered how it can keep flowing day after day? Though I understand the basic principles, I am awestruck by the actual continuous flow. This water brings people together and helps sustain life. It is no accident that cities develop around rivers. The above painting is of The James River, as it passes through Richmond. Even in severe droughts, its flow supplies lots of water to numerous people. Indeed, it is a river of life.

Mercy

4E512572-AB40-4364-8C8A-236BCD722CC0“Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭51:1‬ ‭ESV‬‬

My daughter, the artist who does the paintings for my BLOG, did art with foster children today. Her genuine act of compassion toward them demonstrated her mercy for their distress. These kids just want a home where they are loved for being themselves. (Check out the link below to help) None of us deserve the many blessings in our lives and truly God’s mercy is beyond our understanding and blots out our many transgressions.

Burn No Bridges

295FE131-034D-48A1-A663-A13F271A8A6A“Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭12:14‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Burn No Bridges

My mother used to tell me not to burn my bridges, as these connections are so important in life. And though I have not always obeyed this rule,
I do appreciate that it is a good plan usually. Far too often, I want to go “nuclear” and leave only “ashes”, but that inevitably costs me time, money, effort and friendships. In our self-centered culture, everyone wants to have their own way and listening to others is becoming a lost art; and the result is fewer bridges are built.

Recipe for Your Best Skin

D1197BEC-9508-4DF9-8D2E-8261F17CD89FRecipe for Your Best Skin

There are many factors which affect how your skin appears. Some are not in your control, but many are. Your exposure to the sun is one of the main risk factors for skin damage and aging. Limiting your skin’s exposure can be augmented by using sunscreen liberally. Smoking also causes microvascular damage that ages the skin and should be avoided. A healthy diet with lots of water and one that avoids processed carbohydrates and unhealthy fats seems to be best for the skin. Stress reduction with plenty of rest also optimizes skin health. These things along with good daily skincare are critical to having your best skin. My fun job is with Rodan and Fields Skincare. Our products are number one in North America and Australia and will soon launch into many other countries. This skincare has changed my skin and inspires others to use our products. The great part is that I can have my best skin and have residual income while helping others have their best skin.

Faith

EC19608F-2DE2-43F8-995E-54E2D0400741“He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.””
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭17:20‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Faith
Today it is gorgeous in the mountains of Virginia; and, as I sit on my deck and look at a view similar to the above painting by my daughter ( http://www.sincerelysarahstudios.com ), I reflect on my own Faith and how much it has grown and still needs to grow. Truly just as a tiny mustard seed grows with the proper environment over time to be a huge plant, our Faith can grow so strong over time that nothing is impossible.
