I hope you are having a great spring! In today's edition, I want to share some ideas with you about one of my favorite ways to recycle, which is reusing glass jars.
I started replacing my plastic containers years ago with glass ones that I bought, but lately I've been holding on to glass jars from my groceries. They come in all shapes and sizes, even colors. Taking the old labels off is very easy--just soak in hot soapy water scrub with a dish-cloth.
I prepare my lunch in them and eat out of them. A salad will stay fresh for a good while in the fridge when I mix it in a glass container.
Soups are great too and can be sipped right from the glass. The small ones you can use for homemade deodorant and toothpaste. You can see what is in each jar easily or even apply labels if you like. Small tins work great for this also.
Another favorite thing for me is eating with chopsticks. I seldom use a fork. I’ve noticed that a wide-mouth jar works best when using chopsticks.
If you aren't already recycling items that can be of continued use in other capacities, I hope you'll consider trying it.
Recycled and reusable Is a great way to go when possible.
Who wrote it?
Something else of recent interest. My sister, Angelia (femmeflashpoint of flashPress, came across some poetry she'd stored away a few years ago. She was excited to find them in a slim, seldom used pocket of her briefcase where they'd been tucked away before she moved back to Indiana. They’re yellowed with age. One is hand-written in beautiful script. The others are typed, on a real typewriter.
I'm not the author of them and neither is my sister. For now the writer will remain a little mystery for you unless you recognize the work.
If I were a child
And lived on a hill,
And could look at the world
In all brightness and still,
I'd take all the beauty
And bundle it up,
And wrap it in a ribbon made of a buttercup,
Then all that came to see
Would dance with joy,
And learn the secret
That it's not a toy,
But a bright shining gift
Given from above,
To nurture and cherish
And garnish with love.
Jesus Christ is Risen!
