Dearest One Jill,
A neighbor down the hall from me came for help. She had burned the right side of her face and arm lighting the fireplace. I put Helichrysum on her face and gave her some aloe gel. The next morning her face looked like it had never happened, except for her eyebrow and lashes.
“For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life.”
II Corinthians 2:15
Dear Lord Jesus, help us to carry the fragrance of life to those in need today and to everyone we meet. In Jesus’ name, Amen!!
The following is a true story told to me by a young mother who asked me to share her story in the hope that others can benefit from it:
Brittany woke up one night, at 1AM and vomited in her bed. Her mother changed her sheets, and put her back to bed. The next morning, Brittany appeared to be fine, and went to school.
The next night, at 1AM, Brittany vomited in her bed again. Her mom changed the sheets, put her back to bed, and thought, "She really IS sick." Next morning, Brittany was fine again, and went on to school….
Next night, at 1AM, Brittany vomited in her bed. Her mom was becoming very concerned. So the next morning, even though Brittany seemed fine, her mom kept her home from school, and took her to the doctor, who could not find anything wrong with her.
From that night on, at about 1AM, Brittany vomited in her bed, and by morning, she always seemed to be okay.
Her mom began taking her from doctor to doctor, putting her through extensive testing, but no one was able to figure out why she was vomiting. Several weeks went by, and the doctors were talking about "exploratory surgery" to see if there was any obvious reason for these episodes. They were also looking at psychological reasons why Brittany may be getting sick every night… Everyone was very concerned.
One morning, Brittany's mother woke up, got the kids off for school, took her shower, and at 1PM in the afternoon, she felt like she was going to vomit… "Oh my gosh!" she thought, "Now I've got it, and I'm 12 hours off!" Then she began to think… The only thing she had done differently that day was she had run out of her own shampoo, and had borrowed Brittany's.
Then she thought back… They had received a free sample of a shampoo in the mail, and Brittany had loved it so much, she had bought her a large bottle, the very next day. It was about that same time that Brittany began to vomit at night. She would take her bath every night at 8PM, washing her hair with this shampoo, and by 1AM she was vomiting in her bed. On the day of her important discovery, she (the mom) had taken her shower at 8AM, and by 1PM she felt like she would vomit.
Brittany’s mom threw away the shampoo. She went to the health food store, and bought an "all natural" shampoo. (Which we now know may or may not be all natural – even if it's from a health food store.)
The good news is, after her mother bought the natural shampoo, Brittany no longer vomited in her bed.
