MeSsy Fun Painting

I have just the coolest weekend coming up!!!

The diggs I’m living in is kinda more than just a diggs. We have two. One is just filled with guys & then our diggs is filled with guys and girls. We are a whole bunch of Christians from different backgrounds living together. Some work but we’re mostly students, all studying different things. We do projects together & Bible study & a whole lot of stuff. It’s so hard to explain & me trying to just doesn’t do it any justice. But we are trying to live simplicity in the context of need.

So anyway, at varsity as of Sunday the 29th July – Tuks Missions is having their annual Missions Week. They raise funds during the year up until this huge event in which they have worship, speakers, stalls & a whole lot more each evening in order to educate people on campus about Missions. It really is a super cool event. So every night there will be stalls & the event goes on until Thursday, 2nd August. Our diggs is having a stall of course & as the theme is footprints for the event this year I thought I’d get our stall a table cloth with footprints on it.

But, thinking about it, I want to use the huge piece of cloth for something more. I was just thinking about how footprints has to do with being followers of Jesus but also being His hands & feet & the generation to leave footprints of God’s love in this world. And when we talk about followers, feet, footprints & generations – I usually think KIDS!!! So I decided I need a new project, since I only have a few classes a day & have been feeling bored. It may be something fun but may be something of impact. Tomorrow morning I get to go to a school to spend some time with awesome little kids from the ages 3-6 yrs & if I’m lucky, the rest of the school will join in & paint too. I will have a 2m x 3m white cloth & kids with paint on their feet are gonna run all over it! So I have no clue where this little project of mine may lead & I’m trusting God to do something with it! I will use the cloth on Sunday evening at Missions Week but also later on as I get more ideas on this fun little project.

And then, tomorrow evening I’ll be spending it with Chris & Mona at their house warming! So it is going to be a fun, exciting & messy kick start to one awesome weekend!!!

Fantastic Feet

Feet are often something difficult to keep healthy but need our care as they carry us through each day. Below are a few tips for keeping them healthy & taking needed care of them.

1. Wear Comfy Shoes
If your shoes don’t fit properly or are too tight, you’ll end up with blisters & bunions which is a look we all don’t enjoy. So switch to comfy shoes that fit properly!

2. Look after your toenails
Clean them and clip them. Remember some cuticle oil too. If you’re a fan of keeping your toenails polished then remember to give your toes a break from it for a week every now & then. Remove it all to check your nails & see if they are healthy.

3. Soak your feet
Have a foot bath in the evenings on a regular basis. Add some oils or salts to help them relax & get treated. Don’t forget to give your toenails a clean with a brush. Don’t leave your feet in for too long as your skin will become soggy & wrinkly. About 10 mins will do.

4. Always wear shoes outside
This is tough, especially when you live on the coast. We’re so used to being bear foot. So try if you can, but I really find this one tough to do.
I guess this is more because things could damage your feet & hurt them, but I’m pretty chilled about that.

5. Keep your feet dry
Always dry your feet properly after bathing or swimming & don’t put shoes on until your feet are properly dry. Try not wear wet socks or shoes. If they get wet during the day, dry your feet off as soon as you possibly can.

6. Moisturise
Try moisturise your feet daily. The most effective way is to smother your feet in lots of lotion, put clean socks on & go to bed. Your feet will be extra soft when you wake up.

7. Wear clean socks every day
If you wear socks, change them every day or so if you can. Dirty socks make your feet smell & are also a breeding ground for bacteria which will damage your skin & they lock moisture.

8. Put your feet up
Try & raise your feet above the level of your heart several times a day. This will let any excess fluid drain out so that your feet won’t swell. This is especially important if you’re active & on your feet all day.
