Corinthians 12:31 & 12: 1-31

Brothers and sisters:
Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts.

But I shall show you a still more excellent way.

If I speak in human and angelic tongues
but do not have love,
I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal.
And if I have the gift of prophecy
and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge;
if I have all faith so as to move mountains,
but do not have love, I am nothing.
If I give away everything I own,
and if I hand my body over so that I may boast
but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind.
It is not jealous, love is not pompous,
it is not inflated, it is not rude,
it does not seek its own interests,
it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury,
it does not rejoice over wrongdoing
but rejoices with the truth.
It bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never fails.
If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing;
if tongues, they will cease;
if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing.
For we know partially and we prophesy partially,
but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.
When I was a child, I used to talk as a child,
think as a child, reason as a child;
when I became a man, I put aside childish things.
At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror,
but then face to face.
At present I know partially;
then I shall know fully, as I am fully known.
So faith, hope, love remain, these three;
but the greatest of these is love.

Minimalist Weekend

This weekend we are going to start clearing out the house and we hope to start a minimalist life style. I have been looking at the minimalists.com and find it very interesting.

How many things in you home have you not used in days, months or even years? thinking things over I have thought of a lot of things that fit in the years column.

If you have a lot of nice things you should think about donating to a good cause.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Saving Money (updated)

Update: I have found the double edged razors are numbered each blade 1 – 4 (front and back) and if you follow 1 number a day you can get 4 shaves from 1 blade. That’s $.02 a shave.

I have just started using a double edged safety razor. I got the cheesy as seen on TV Microtouch One Razor Classic Safety Razor
. It works very well. It comes with a stand and 12 double edged blades. I would suggest it to anyone, but it has a short handle and if you have big hands you might want to look at Merkur Long Handled Safety Razor
this long handled version.

And now for the big savings. I just bought these blades for my razor. They are the Derby Extra Derby Extra Double Razor Blades, 200 Count and they cost about $.08 for each blade. I have been able to use each blade 3 times, but the 3rd use was a rough shave and I would only suggest 2 shaves ($.04 per-shave). I was using Schick Xtreme 3 Triple Blade Closeness Razors , Sensitive, 8 razors
to shave and find the safety razor MUCH better to use. I also use an after shave lotion Aveeno Active Naturals Men's After Shave 3.4 oz. (Pack of 3)
. This has worked well for me, but look around and pick one the would be best for you or the person these would deb a gift for.

I also suggest searching YouTube for how to video’s to see the best way to shave with a safety razor. I find slow strokes at a 45 degree angle works best.
