What do you use when you have a cold and your nose is chapped from how much kleenex you’ve been using?  I use chapstick - either Burt’s Bees or Carmex.  It rather stings after a moment, but it soothes the itch and burn before long.  It’s miserable without it, so I am quite thankful for chapstick.

I have had a longstanding relationship with this ointment.  I don’t generally drink enough water (although I do try and am getting better).  Another trouble is that when I do drink plenty of water, my lips have the opposite reaction you would expect... they get really chapped.  Thus, I have become rather familiar with the use of chapstick and hand lotion.  The only two chapsticks that have had any longstanding effect of those that I have tried thus far are the above two.  I would highly recommend them.

[Disclaimer:  No, I have not been paid to advertise for Burt’s Bees, Carmex, or chapstick in general.  I certify that the above testimony is true and correct to the best of my knowledge.]

So, as I am thankful for Electric Toothbrushes, I am thankful that God gave us such a thing as chapstick.

  1. Hi Jen, I finally figured out how to post a comment and wanted you to know I enjoy reading your blog - it helps me to feel a bit more connected to you.
    This morning I felt God speaking to my heart as I looked out the window to see the most amazing sunflower blooming. It started as a little volunteer among plants I have worked hard to plant, weed, fertilize and protect from rabbits - yet struggle to grow and are no where near as vigorous and vibrant as the volunteer sunflower. God reminded me that what He plants in my life will bloom and be vibrant despite my best efforts to cultivate other things I think I should or must do. Love, Mom
