Be soothed by Crisco and Jesus

I know a beautiful elderly lady who was featured in a magazine because she was so old but had no wrinkles on her face.  She told me her secret and I am going to tell you!  She put crisco on her face every night.  Some people think this is gross.  I only put a little bit under my eyes on some nights.  It feels so good, like a balm.  Did you know "there is a balm in Gilead" (Jeremiah 8:22) and his name is JESUS.  When you are hurting or wounded, Jesus is the remedy.  Like a balm, He can soothe you.  It feels so good to be soothed by one who loves you.  When a baby cries and his mother picks him up and rocks him to sleep it soothes him.  The baby is at peace against his mother's chest.  He feels her love. 

Sometimes I like to imagine myself as a little child running up to Jesus when I really need him and climbing up into his big comfy lap and laying my head on his shoulder.  I know that I don't even have to say a word because he knows whats bothering me.  I can just let Him hug me, hold me, and love me.  He can love me deeper than anyone on earth because He MADE my heart and knows me inside and out.  WOW.  What a Father!  Oh, how I love Jesus.  And oh, my friend, how He loves you....
