And then…THIS happened…

MeSilver

I am still FLOATING!!!

I made it, I made it, I made it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FIRST…I want to thank my AMAZING team leaders – Cathy McUmber, Barbara Dykes, Linda Carnes, and Teri Burton who have been using these precious essential oils with me from day one and my AWESOME mentor, Mandi Felici who always believed in me…even when I did not believe in myself :) and my WONDERFUL husband and 2 sons who all BELIEVE in these oils and in me!!!

My top leaders and myself just used these oils for a long time not focusing on sharing them with others as a business…until I went to my first convention last October (2013) – and that is when I knew without a doubt that THIS is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life…share these amazing gifts from God with every person I possibly could to empower them the way that I had been empowered to take care of my family’s health in a natural way!!!

I started focusing on doTERRA as a business in January of this year…which is when I scheduled and taught my very first class…which brought more AMAZING leaders onto my team (and you all know who you are) who have become some of my very best friends!!! I would not be in the leadership position I am in today without all of you…and I am humbled and incredibly grateful to each of you for believing in this passion to change people’s lives one drop at a time!!!

I have another very special message to convey though…and it is about the “miracle of Christmas found in…forgiveness”…I did not really expect to hit Silver this month…in fact I had pretty much given up on that until January :) If you have not read my previous blog post from earlier today – please do and you will understand…I was carrying some hurt and bitterness around for 2 years and whether we realize it or not that holds a space in our lives…

Out of obedience to God, I emptied out that space last night :)

And then…THIS happened…

I got a telephone call from Teri Burton today telling me I needed to look at my back office :) as she had just enrolled a new person into doTERRA and hit Elite!!!

THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT…..I AM SILVER – December 2014!!!

To all of my AMAZING leaders (and any others who want to jump in and join in our passion)…….It is ON TO DIAMOND now…and I am taking you all with me :)

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

What is TODAY about…

MyFamSO….I started my morning off with my 1st glass of water – YAY ME!!! I added my drop of Lemon Essential Oil in it because I know my body needs some detoxifying…Did I have coffee??? Yep…I am enjoying that one cup right now as I write today’s blog post!

However, today’s post is not about where I am in my Mission for Wellness 2015 journey (as I am still preparing for that to start in January LOL) – nor is it about my AMAZING Essential Oils…

Today…It is ALL about my JESUS!!!

I have been carrying around a specific hurt for TWO years now…crazy? well…it was a very deep hurt…but the real question is…Would Jesus want me to do that??? The answer is simply…NO…In Matthew 11:28-30 – He tells us…”Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” ….and in Philippians 4:6-7…He tells us…”Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

He wants our hearts to be filled with PEACE and JOY!!!

Had I been able to forgive this person as we are instructed to do??? Well…I would like to say that I had…I have definitely gone through the motions of doing that and I have talked to God about it many, many times over the last TWO years.  To be completely honest though…I really do not know! The HURT was definitely still there…

Since I started on my “devoted walk with Jesus”…I get convicted very easily :) which I consider a privilege.  Sometimes…it can be a challenge LOL :) God has been working on “my heart” about this issue for a while, but yesterday He was not going to let me go…therefore, I was obedient to Him.

Hebrews 12:15 -” See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled;”  – Bitterness….that was the KEY…God knew it – He knew that I might have “forgiven” but I was STILL carrying that ugly thing called “bitterness” inside my heart!!! How could I get PEACE…His PEACE…if I still had that???

Well…the TRUTH is that I could not :) and so I went to see this person and with my amazing husband by my side – praying for me and with me…my heart feeling like it was going to come out of my chest…feeling like I could not breathe (anyone ever been there???) – and yes of course…I had “oiled up” before I left my house but forgot to take any with me ;)  – With alot of tears and a HUG that seemed to last a lifetime…that “bitterness” that was still stuck way down deep in there somewhere……..well….

IT WAS GONE!!!

My Coffee and My Jesus…

MyCoffeeMyJesus

I sit this morning spending my quiet time with Jesus…drinking my coffee with a drop of Cassia in it (the flu is going around!)  and breathing in Frankincense and Citrus Bliss diffusing from my little Petal diffuser that I am still ecstatic about :) !!!

My coffee mug says…Sit Long, Talk Much, Laugh Often…and it makes me think of what we need to do with Jesus.  This morning I had some issues and people heavy on my heart…

Amazon had a special going on for “Jesus Calling” for only $1.99 on Kindle so I jumped on that :) as I have wanted that devotional since the first time I laid eyes on it…and when I read the message at the beginning from the author and her story and her favorite Bible verse which is mine also…I knew I made a good choice!

Psalm 46:10 is always the verse that can calm my heart…”Be Still…and know that I am God”.  – That can be difficult for me at times :)

So I downloaded my “Jesus Calling” and then went to December 2nd to read the devotional…(Its the pink edition – whatever that means)…”Peace be with you” – Jesus said :) He said when I keep my focus on Him, I will experience both His presence and His peace! I need His peace each MOMENT to accomplish His purpose in my life…

He also said sometimes I am tempted to take shortcuts in order to reach my goal as quickly as possible…Yep He knows me well :) It is difficult sometimes while we are in the “waiting” process, right???  We need to be okay with taking the longer route…and enjoy the journey in His presence.

Psalm 25:4 says…”Show me the right path, O Lord; point out the road for me to follow.”

What a great scripture and what a great prayer to pray daily – even more often sometimes…I am definitely writing this one on my heart :)

CUDDLE BLEND…

AutumnDiffusers

So…it is a cold day in Georgia :) and a very lazy day around our home!!! We received our new essential oil diffuser from doTERRA yesterday and are loving it…It is the new one – the “Petal” and I am shocked at the amount it puts out.

So last night we tried Serenity and Breathe (for the hubby’s snoring) in it and put it on our headboard before going to bed and set it for four hours…WONDERFUL!!! I slept all night and so did he and guess what??? I heard NO snoring lol :) that alone is worth the $47…

So my first choice this morning was “Holiday Joy” blend and what a FUN blend it is!

HolidayJoy

It smells heavenly and just so fun for this time of the year!!! So the hubby wanted to try a different one after four hours of that one…so on to Citrus Bliss – just an all time favorite, right???

Hubby has been asleep for hours now…both Poms passed out as well :) Love lazy days like this to just recuperate from busy lives!

I am seriously thinking about the “Cuddle Blend” listed above and maybe a movie for tonight!!!

Love my oils…Love my life :)

Thankfulness…

TurkeyMy heart is overwhelmed with thankfulness tonight as this year’s Thanksgiving comes to an end…A day spent with family and plans for another tomorrow! Turkey and all the fixings to go with it and full tummies all around :) Hubby’s grilled turkey was amazing!!! For the Christmas turkey  – we will try the Essential Oil recipe :) Can’t wait!

There is always something we can find to be thankful for no matter how hard life may seem…having an attitude of gratitude can have a major impact on our lives :)

1 Chronicles 16:34

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

Ahh…Coffee, Coffee, Coffee

coffee

Coffee and I have a “relationship”…

I have never been a die hard coffee drinker…however, when it is cold…I do love my hot cup of java! Unfortunately…it is one of the items I will be working on removing on my Mission for Wellness – 2015 :)

It did NOT happen this morning, however! I am loving my coffee with a drop of my cinnamon essential oil in it :) so comforting.  This will be a difficult removal I am afraid lol :) – it is necessary however, for my adrenal gland health.

I am going to find a wonderful replacement with possibly some homemade chai tea! I think more than anything it is the warmth and comfort from the coffee versus the coffee itself for me :) although my energy levels do increase with my morning cup of coffee – unfortunately…again not healthy for my adrenal glands.

Coffee according to recent studies does have positive effects on the body as well to include decreasing the risk for Parkinson’s Disease, Type 2 Diabetes, and others…so you have to decide for yourself if it is a positive or negative for your own body.  For me the increased acidity and release of stress hormones that go along with it are enough to make me feel the need to begin to decrease my intake!

It probably will not happen tomorrow!
