FYI - that first frankenboot they gave me cost my insurance company $250 and me $100...and I hated it because it was very uncomfortable and heavy. I bought this one from Amazon Prime for 80 bucks and my doctor and I both approve. 87,99,73,0,C
Non believers seem to get awfully defensive when Christians talk about sin. Don't mistake correction for condemnation. Judgement is God's job - not man's. There is no better definition of self righteous than those who put their own importance above God. No sin is greater than another sin in the eternal sense and there is no one on this planet who is without sin. All sin separates us from God, and all sin needs to be atoned for. All sins are "mortal" sins in that even one sin makes the offender worthy of spiritual death and eternal separation from God. Although the Bible doesn't name any one sin as the greatest sin, it does refer to the unpardonable sin, which is the sin of unbelief. There is no pardon for a person who dies in unbelief. The Bible is clear that, in His love for mankind, God provided the means of eternal salvation - Jesus Christ and His death on the cross - for "whoever believes in Him" (John 3:16) The only condition under which forgiveness would not be granted concerns those who reject the only means of salvation. Jesus said, "I am the way the the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6), making it clear that He and He alone is the path to God and salvation.
Jesus has authority over the supreme court and the court of public opinion and his message is clear...LOVE. When our opinions and preferences become more important than the message from the Kingdom of God, we are lost. "This is my commandment, That ye love one another as I have loved you. (John 15:12)
Don't let the government jerk your chain.
The movement of water itself is cleansing. The Sufis call upon water's qualities with the wazifa, wahabo. When pronounce accurately the word sounds like water, think bubbling brook. Sufis also repeat it as a mantra for a variety of occasions such as to prepare for public speaking, consider the cleansing of the voice the pronunciation causes which is not unlike the odd sounding practices a vocal teacher might assign a student. Spiritual practice is always made richer when we do it with multiple senses, I've heard this dancing called praying with one's body.
While in Bend I've enjoyed the Duchutes river's presence. I've run along it, slept aside it, and it has been a part of my internal practice. Oh, I picked up the yoga matt at a yard sale. It was in the free box. : )
I don't mind spending as much as 1/2 hr a day cleaning the interior of Hondo. It keeps me sane. I air out the fabrics, brush the floors, and wipe the surfaces, and clean Sesame's nose smears off the windows. It also helps that we shut the windows when we're in dusty places with car traffic. Many leave their cars wide open failing to realize that each passer by can leave you a pound heavier just from road dust!
In these ten weeks we have amassed a variety of systems for staying clean. We have white cotton square rags that we keep around for a variety of uses: one is kitchen only, each of us has a body rag, and we have a car rag (for the interior). I also stock disinfectants in the form of essential oils: eucalyptus and tea tree are my favorites. Morning and night we boil water and use the personal rag to wash with hot water. Nothing feels better. When your hanging out in nature dirty feet turn into what we call troll foot. Nighttime foot baths are divine and keep our bed clean.
