And he spake of trees, from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springeth out of the wall: he spake also of beasts, and of fowl, and of creeping things, and of fishes.
1 Kings 4:33
African hunters have a clever way of trapping monkeys.
They slice a coconut in two, hollow it out, and in one half of the shell cut a hole just big enough for a monkey’s hand to pass through. Then they place an orange in the other coconut half before fastening together the two halves of the coconut shell. Finally, they secure the coconut to a tree with a rope, retreat into the jungle, and wait.
Sooner or later, an unsuspecting monkey swings by, smells the delicious orange, and discovers its location inside the coconut. The monkey then slips his hand through the small hole, grasps the orange, and tries to pull it through the hole. Of course, the orange won’t come out; it’s too big for the hole. To no avail the persistent monkey continues to pull and pull, never realizing the danger he is in.
While the monkey struggles with the orange, the hunters simply stroll in and capture the monkey by throwing a net over him. As long as the monkey keeps his fist wrapped around the orange, the monkey is trapped.
It’s too bad the poor monkey could save its own life if it would only let go of the orange. It rarely occurs to a monkey, however, that it can’t have both the orange and its freedom. That delicious orange becomes a deadly trap.
A perfect example of forgiveness.
Four years ago, I was introduced to something that has transformed my life: essential oils.
Yes I was a big skeptic about them at first, but I now use essential oils on a daily basis in every area of my home, and they have completely changed my life! My medicine cabinet has been completely transformed, and I am now empowered with the tools and knowledge to care for my family.
When I realized I could get free products AND create residual income? I got really excited!
As a result, of my essential oil journey, and passion helping others, I’m ready to help you get started with your essential oil journey as well.
The best part about essential oils is that there is an option for everyone, whether you want to simply enjoy the products for yourself and transform your family’s health (and get free stuff in the process) OR you’re ready to build a team, create residual income, and get out of debt.
If any of these options sound appealing to you, let’s chat!
I’ll help you figure out which option will be the best fit for you, plus you can qualify for some awesome incentives in the process.
I can’t wait to talk to you!

Irene the church gossip, and self appointed monitor of the church’s morals, kept sticking her nose into other people’s business. Several members did not approve of her extra curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.
She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old blue pickup parked in front of the town’s only bar one afternoon. She emphatically told George, and several others, that everyone seeing it there would know exactly what he was doing.
George, a man of few words, stared at her for a few moments and just turned and walked away. He didn’t explain, defend or deny! He said nothing! Later that evening, George quietly parked his blue pickup in front of Irene’s house …. walked home …. and left it there….all night!
The moral of this story is don’t judge others. Even the most obvious situations are not what they appear to be.
