My heart rejoices at the sound of those two words. Looking at the current state of life in the cities, the intense passion for money getting, the whirl of excitement and pleasure seeking, the thirst for display, the luxury and extravagance, all are forces that, with the great masses of mankind, are turning the mind from life’s true purpose. Many are so distracted! They have lost sight of God, the phrase 'Jesus is coming SOON' has lost it's meaning, it now sounds like a broken record. People just don't care anymore, YOLO! is the next big thing. Yes! you only live once, but who are you living for? Are you glorifying God? When God looks at your life, does he say to the devil 'has thou considered my servant [insert your name], that there is none like him, a perfect and upright man' like he said about Job?
Once we are separated from worldly customs and excitements, our hearts are drawn closer to God through nature. The presence of God would be amplified and we would learn to depend wholly on him. This is exactly why I marvel at the thought of Country Living!
Country Living also entails being less dependent on the next person. For example the use of natural remedies to avoid having to rush to the doctor every time your body decides to throw tantrums at you.
Anyway here is a recipe to making your own TOOTHPASTE, I haven't tried it yet BUT a friend of mine has and was super excited about it.
1 heaped tsp of activated charcoal
3 tsp of coconut oil
1 tbsp of baking powder
About 50 drops of peppermint essential oil
Mix the charcoal and baking powder thoroughly first. Then add the coconut oil and finally the peppermint oil. Mix well, and you should have a thick paste. :)
