Life Affirmation/Personal Mission Statement
Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather must recognize that it is he who is asked. In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible. ~~ Frankl

Isaiah’s Commission from the Lord
Here I am LORD use me. Would you say that in your prayer? Are you afraid to say it? Have you said it?

CARING FOR SENIORS
What does a senior lady have to contend with as they age and still want to pamper their hands and feet nails? As we age, our skin, hair and nails lose their natural moisture. We must replenish that moisture as best we can by using water and oil to maintain a balance. Vaseline is not the answer but oils that are close to our physical composition or sebum. Sebum is an oily substance produced in the sebaceous glands. It mixes with fat molecules, called lipids, to form a protective coating on the skin’s surface. These lipids help hydrate the skin and protect it from potentially harmful pathogens, such as bacteria and fungi.
The oils that are close to our sebaceous makeup are castor oil and jojoba oil. These two oils can help maintain the moisture levels needed for the skin’s integrity as we age. Formula used:
1 Tbsp Castor Oil(cold pressed)
1 Tbsp Jojoba Oil
1 Tbsp Aloe Vera(pure, no additives) Moisture
Massage this formula into hands and feet. Play close attention to the cuticles. Use daily and hydrated skin will be the result.
