Love Your Enemies

At first I thought I would have a hard time coming up with a topic being that it’s an exciting week for me. Black Panther comes out this Friday, making progress with my children’s book, and going to have a romantic time at the ortho’s office on V-day, yayy me! Finally (like a few seconds ago) the topic came to me, Love Your Enemies.

It’s easy to love people that you get along with. The ones that support, encourage, and  strengthen you . Oh what’s not to love about that? Sure there’s moments where you can’t stand them but it’s only temporary because you both love each other unconditionally.pexels-photo-46024.jpeg I struggled with loving my enemies. It was bad enough I held grudges that could last from a few days to years but my enemies were unforgiven for life. I couldn’t avoid it , God wouldn’t let me , even now if /when I try. So what do I do ? How do I learn to love my enemies? Through pep talks (notes I take from church service) and scriptures:

But I say to you who hear, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you”- Luke 6:27

“And whenever you stand praying, forgive ,if you have Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses”-Mark 11:25

“If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.”-Proverbs 25:21-22

So for this valentine’s day I challenge you to serve your enemy with kindness whether it’s directly or indirectly with prayer , they deserve it and will appreciate you.

Tooth Fairy Pillows

Did you know February is known for being National Children’s Dental Health Month? You may even ask what is National Children’s Dental Health Month? Sponsored by the American Dental Association, they raise awareness related to oral health. What better way to raise awareness then to make tooth fairy pillows!

When I was younger I would place my tooth underneath my pillow to wake up with money while other times  my baby tooth would remain wrapped in a napkin. I wasn’t sure if the tooth fairy forgot about me or maybe I was sleeping too hard and they couldn’t get to my tooth without waking me up lol.

Either way, making tooth fairy pillows is a fun activity during children’s dental health month and who knows this may help all of the tooth fairies out there !

What you’ll need::

Felt fabric

Thread

Sewing needle

Scissors

Black Marker

Fabric Glue

Start with a piece of white felt and use a black marker to trace out your tooth. Second, cut a rectangle from a colorful piece of felt and fold together to form a pocket shape. Third, sew the sides of the ‘pocket’ using your thread and needle. Last, glue your tooth on top of the pocket and there’s your tooth fairy pillow!
