The Grateful Life-A Photographic Journey of 365 days

A Walk Through the Park
On my way walking to the train station one snowy eve after work, I stumbled upon this beauty. I love the snow and I love how everything is covered in white. As I am walking through the park trying to get the shot, this scripture verse came to me, “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool. Isaiah 1:18.  As I am thinking about the scripture verse and how our sins shall be made white as snow. This particular point stood out to me, red is such a powerful color, and the Lord says that, “our sins are like scarlet.” Then, how can the color white wash away red, when red is such a strong color ? I do not have the answer, but I figured this would require a lot of work.  Which is what Christ did. He did all the work , He took up the cross, and died for us so that our sins can be made white as snow. He became the penalty for our sins.

Another thing that stood out for me was, my recollection this verse, I remembered it from my childhood Sunday school class. Sometimes we were given a scripture verse to learn and recite the following week.  Today, I am grateful for the snow and the memory it brought back to me of  my childhood, my Sunday school teacher, and what I learned.  Christ’s penalty on the cross covered a multitude of my sins and they are made white as snow.

A walk through the park took me on walk down memory lane~

Beauty Trick

Beauty Trick

I wanted to share a beauty trick for curly hair, I find that towel drying after the shower makes it frizzy and tangled. You might have heard that you’re not supposed to rub your hair in a towel because it creates friction and can lead to split ends. I read that a cotton t-shirt will help de-frizz your hair and keep it healthy. This works well for my curly-haired sisters especially because it gently dries your hair without messing with the natural curl pattern. So copied it just for you. Here’s how to do it:

1.) Squeeze: When you finish your shower, squeeze your curls gently with a cotton tee (the thicker the more absorbent). Move along in sections, from your scalp to the ends of your hair. I would dry each section of your hair only once, since doing it more than that can cause you to lose volume.

2.) Wrap: Flip your head over and use the t-shirt like you would normally use a towel to turban-wrap your hair. An easy way is to place the bottom of the t-shirt at the nape of your neck, and slowly twist up until you reach the end. Then, just tuck the end underneath the part that’s framing your face!

3.) Wait: This step varies for each person – some people wait 5 minutes and some keep it on for up to 15. It just depends on your hair. However long you would normally keep a towel around your head will work for a t-shirt too.

4.) Style: Gently unwrap the t-shirt turban and style as you would normally. If you have any leave-in conditioners or oils, now is the time to use them.

Depending on your hair type, you might be able to skip steps 2 and 3 – some ladies just need the t-shirt to soak up the moisture and don’t need to wrap their hair at all. Just experiment and you’ll find the right solution!

Good luck curly hair sisters!!!
