Spring Cleaning Time! 

Peace and love y’all! 

I’m so excited to write about my favorite time of the year…SPRING

Flowers are blooming, leaves are growing and dancing, rain showers are here and it’s getting warmer. Well, at least on some days. This sister is still wearing winter coats here and there.

Before I knew I was a Hebrew Yisraelite, this time of the year mattered to me in a natural sense. Why? Because it just felt new. Come on, bright colors and beautiful flowers return. I love flowers and nature so much, thus I love to watch the plants & flowers bloom to be beautiful and become their purpose. There’s much symbolism there. Such as obedience, joy, order, and peace. (But that’s another blog post!)

What I do enjoy about spring or the arrival of it is….


Yesterday I can home from work early and decided that I can start cleaning out my closets and dressers. I let go of clothes, shoes, papers I thought took space and no longer needed. Then the thought was placed in my mind that spring cleaning is so deeper than searching my closet! 

Spring cleaning has a lot of symbolism in it for me in a spiritual sense that I’d like to share. 

Cleaning out my things is symbolic to purging my life, like a detox. Today, I went through my clothes and belongings to see what I use or don’t use, what’s taking up space and what’s useful. It helps declutter and just bring about a renewed peace. Letting go is apart of the process, and depending on your will, that can be the hardest part of the process. But we’ve got to clean up! 

Being a Hebrew Yisraelite, I recognize that the Feast of the Most High Yah, Passover is approaching. Spiritually, it is a time of self-reflection to see if there be leaven/sin (yeast) in my heart. And when sin is acknowledged, the purging begins. This is similar to throwing things out, The Most High takes an active part in His people’s lives by showing them their sins. 

“Search me, O Ěl, and know my heart; Try me, and know my thoughts; And see if an idolatrous way is in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.” Psalms 139:23-24

In becoming a better woman, I want to let go of so much that binds me to the old girl I used to be. It takes more than writing this blog. Just as cleaning out a room can take up time (depending on the clutter) purging takes action/work. 

I’m so grateful for spring! I’m so grateful for this new year! 

If you desire to become a better woman, while you search your closets, search your heart for any negativity you’ve been harboring. My hope is that you let it go and gain positivity . 

Shalom!

 

Strawberry Water 

Hey friends! 

Today I am sharing something soo healthy, delicious and easy to put together. 

So what’s new? I’ve recently increased my water intake because I just needed to. If you read my post about bentonite clay, you’ll know I drink clay with water for detox and cleansing purposes. I want to take care of my insides and teach those around me the importance of caring for their insides. Hey, click the link and check it out!

On to my new discovery…but I’m sure you know what it is, cause you’ve read the title! (Disclaimer: I am not stating that I’m the founder but yes, I discovered it for myself😋). 

Strawberry Water! 🍓🍓


Adding strawberries to your water is not only refreshing and yummy, but it also has health benefits. I’ve witnessed quite a few for myself! Let’s get into it:

  • prevents cancer
  • promotes weight loss
  • Increases metabolism rate
  • Awesome detox
  • potent in Vitamin C 
  • hydrates the body 

Who knew a bottle of this yumminess  could be filled with these amazing benefits? Cause I didn’t know, but now I do. I began drinking strawberry water mostly because it tasted so yummy and strawberries can sometimes be too sweet to munch on alone. So I threw them into my water. Within a couple of minutes, the juices are released into the water. The longer their infused, the more potent the sweet taste is. 

My Testimonial

I did notice that I burned fat & became leaner. That’s one of the best things that could happen! Oh yes it is! I also noticed my metabolism was slowing down and I felt lighter… you know like my 15 year old self, no kidding! I also found that it quenched my thirst! How satisfying! 

If you’re interested in increasing your water intake, losing weight, gaining muscle, or a simple detox, try strawberry water! You’ll feel lighter and look forward to drinking it everyday lol. You’ll even go to bed early so you can have it again the next day. 

Oh, if you’re fancy, try it with sparkling water. 

Let me know if you have tried this water or if you will! Or share other yummy infused waters to try along with their benefits.

Shalom!

What’s been up?

I am back!! I’ve been away from this blog for so long and I just have to blurt this one out: I MISSED IT HERE! *exhales* I just missed writing and just sharing what I am learning to be that better woman in every role gifted to me. Even the writer’s role! Yea, Rachel even the writers role!

What’s been up, you ask? I must say there is just much going on that honestly keeps me from getting on here to write. For example, work has gotten heavier which knocks me out when I get home, much is required of me in my parent’s home as far as keeping the home, and last but not least, I’m planning my husband to be and i’s wedding shower! Yes, I’m granted the wonderful opportunity to be his wife! Exciting but planning as been time-consuming.

Neither of the tasks above can ever be legit excuses, and neither am I complaining about them. Actually, I’m superbly grateful for finances to pay things off, my parents and the ability to love them up before I’m off to a new home, and the opportunity to become a awesome man’s wife. My focus however has not been here but the blog has been on my mind and is finally penciled into my schedule.

Your girl has got plans with this blog. With the changes being made in my life, I would like to tweak the avenue of my blog. The goal to become a better woman is endless in my life, but I desire to share more detailed and personal blogs. Therefore, I’ll be creating a section called, “a better wife” aside from the devotionals and DIYs.

The goal isn’t to give the insides of our life, but to share what I am learning.

So stick around, in becoming a better woman, that includes becoming a better and consistent writer.

Shalom & blessings!
