What’s that you say? You’d like another Conversion Diary link? And if I can spare, my most recent favorite skin care tip? I aim to please.
So I teach one or two mornings a week a class called Fall Avoidance. I love it. We practice balance, gait, spatial awareness, posture and strength. The youngest person is in her sixties. I love being around people with wisdom. And let me just say, age and wisdom don’t seem to necessarily go together. You can see the people who’ve chosen to let bitterness with life be their driving force until they’re finished. But most of them have so much to teach me. They’ve lived. They see. They’ve experienced. They know there’s nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes). And yet God regularly does a New Thing (Isaiah). I love listening to their stories.
Anyway, the other day I just had to ask one of my younger ladies (or so I thought) what her skin care regimen was. She absolutely glows. She goes, “Every night I wash my face with soap and put on a moisturizer. And since I was 21 I’ve put Vaseline around my eyes before bed. And now I’m 76.” WhAt?! I thought she was younger than my mom. She admitted to good genes. But come on. I’m totally using $2 Vaseline from now on. You could almost sense her humor at my reaction. You kids and thinking you need these fancy organic products. Pure petroleum jelly is what we used for diaper rash for crying in the night.
Here’s the link. Enjoy. And meditate:
