On Eagle’s Wings, Meditations for Christians in a 12 Step Program

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him.

Jeremiah 17:7

In Step 3 we “made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God.”  To do this we need to trust God and have confidence that He will see to our needs; that He will protect us in times of trouble, guide us to the right action when under trials.  We also must have faith that God knows what is best for us, now and in the future.  Our program states that we must have a spiritual awakening, a complete personality change.  Believing this, we can pray with the saints of old, “Create in me a new spirit.” When we do this, God promises to bless us. This is why our program recommends, “Let go, Let God.”  With daily use of this step, we can be assured of doing the next right thing.

Anyone who trusts in God will never be put to shame.

Romans 10:11

Crazier for Coconut Oil

It’s been a while since I posted anything.  Spring is finally here in the Twin Cities and I had an Aha Moment! All my windows are open, chicken is on the grill!  While waiting for said chicken to be done, I decided that I needed to polish my Dansko work shoes. When I was younger, I used to polish my dad’s and brother’s shoes with linseed oil. I don’t have any. I also do not keep petrolium jelly in the house anymore. “Hmmmm, ” I said to myself. “I wonder what would happen if I used my Cold Processed Organic Coconut oil?”  Wonder no more! It worked like a charm! My shoes are clean and shiny and it took 30 seconds per shoe! While I was at it, I  rubbed the excess coconut oil on my fingernails and cuticles for that manicured look!

Today is a great day to sit on the porch and get to polishing those shoes!

Happy Spring to you all!
