It's the Balm

Updated on August 18, 2014

What do your lips say about you?

Did you realize that your lips tell a story about you? They actually tattletale whatever you are feeling. If you are happy they smile, but if you are grumpy or sad everyone can tell because your lips get wrinkly and poofy. That is why it's important to do things that keep our lips happy.

Something that people may think is very strange or even weird about me is that I always carry lip balm with me. I have it with me every where I go. Whether I am at home or out somewhere, lip balm is always in my pocket. When I go to bed at night it is on my nightstand. There is never a time I am not without my lip balm. Yes, it's the balm for me that makes me smile.

Why do I make such a fuss about my lip balm? Because it keeps my lips smooth and feeling good so I can always be ready to smile, say kind things, sing or even whistle. No one likes dry, cracked lips. Happy lips means happy smiles. Are you ready to smile or make someone happy by using your mouth to do good things for God? Then "balms" away.

Talk: Our Lips Need to Speak the Truth - What are your lips saying to others? Do your lips tell the truth?

We all have decisions to make that sometimes seem impossible. Gillian, a young college student is in the middle of a big one. She is trying to balance relationships, school, friends, music and even her faith. Being falsely accused of selling answers to an exam, will those who have lied come clean and finally be honest about what really happened?

The Fruit of My Lipstick (All About Us Series, Book 2)
The Fruit of My Lipstick (All About Us Series, Book 2)

Building relationships is all about honesty, and the award winning author of this book gets to the heart of telling the truth. Paper pack 256 pages for ages over 12.

Sing with Your Lips

Singing is a great way

to make people smile.

Use your lips to make joyful

noises that will please.

Larry says he loves his lips. - Take care of your lips. If they turn blue, what would you do?

The second video has the words to sing along with Larry.

"By him therefore let us offer

the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is,

the fruit of our lips

giving thanks to his name."

(Hebrews 13:15)

Music from my lips: Hebrews 13:15 MP3 - Singing is fruit from your lips.

Three versions that are taken from Hebrews 13:15. One to suit every style. (May not play in this order, but you can tell which one it is.)

Version 1: A Sacrifice Of Praise (Hebrews 13:15 - NIV) by Integrity/Columbia Music Group offers a soft version for memory verse lessons. I like this version very much.

Hebrews 13:15 version released in 2006 is a somewhat faster version with a much different tone about it. Not for everybody, but some will find this meets their needs and music style.

The third version is a peppy upbeat tempo that includes passages from Praise On My Lips / (Psalm 34:1-3) (Psalm 63:3-5) (Hebrews13:15) by Sonja G. Whitmore & the High Praise Chorale Ensemble. A really fun version kids will move to easily and get everyone off their seat and to their feet.span>

Finish the Face

Our lips tell a story. If we are happy the corners of our mouth make our lips to point up. If we are sad the corners of our lips will point toward the ground.

How are you feeling today? Finish the pictures by drawing a face for each expression and feeling.

      Lips do require crack. Hate cracked lips whenever I see one, I have the feeling to apply a lip balm or educate the person.

      Cute lens. I had a job at a restaurant when I was young. The boss required us to smile at all times. I used to practice smiling on my drive to work. It was amazing to me how hard it was to keep a smile on my face for 8 hours a day. It was the best experience I ever had. To this day, my smile muscles are in great shape. It's good for making new friends too!

      Love your lenses so far. I'm trying to get you to visit one of mine and like it. I'm such a newbie at this that I go to other people's lenses to see how they did it, and then I'll try to emulate them. Is this a good idea, or a bad one? Keep smiling and loving the Lord, I think you're great!
