As a Nigerian girl living in a country with serious power supply problems, I had practically no choice than to get myself a stove iron. I couldn’t afford to plug in the electric iron on the supply from the generator.
In case you are an assorted fella and know nothing about the stove iron, it is simply an iron that you can place directly on the burning stove and then use to iron your clothes. You can actually convert an electric iron which is no longer functioning to a stove iron. All you need do is cut off the power cord an voila, you are good to go!
Whenever you need to iron your clothes and the power has been seized, stove iron to the rescue!
One thing though, you have to be careful with the temperature you allow the iron attain before placing it on your precious dresses. You know this type of iron has no control so, first swipe the surface through a piece of cloth you can afford to do away with. With time, you will get used to
You can thank me later for the tip 😁
To my main gist. . .
I turned a bottle which formerly contained air freshener into a spray bottle for my ironing works. I would therefore constantly put clean water into the bottle and spray on the clothes I was ironing at that time. Ain’t I genius?
Amazingly, after several months of using that particular bottle; putting fresh supply of water at intervals the bottle still had the fragrance from the air freshener. It was such that whenever I sprayed water from the bottle I could perceive the fragrance from the former contents.
I mean, I still saw that bottle today and it still smells really nice.
As I placed the bottle back down, I heard in my spirit “LONG LASTING FRAGRANCE”
Do you know that God made you for impact?
When He allows you live in a community, share a room with someone or work in a particular office you are planted there to make impact.
Sadly, many of us pass through places without leaving any mark behind.
You need to know that God is always intentional about His actions and if He places you somewhere it must be for a reason.
If you take a look at your life you might be able to point out one or more persons that have left an indelible mark on your life by their good deeds. And you still remember them long after possible separation.
Can you do a check on how you have lived your life up until now and ask yourself if you had maximised every opportunity for impact that God had given you in the past?
Not to worry, today and tomorrow are brand new opportunities you have for impact.
When you leave where you are today, will you even be missed?
And what will you be missed for?
Good or bad deeds?
Is your life giving off sweet smelling fragrance or irritating odour?
This is a call to invest in the lives of people around you. It is the greatest form of investment you could make; I can assure you.
Care for people. Love them. Seek their good. Show concern for their conditions. Bless them. Pray for them. Be an encourager. Don’t shut your eyes on their needs.
Leave a mark.
