‘Perfect Pink Pout’ the door declares! It can take quite a while to achieve the Perfect Pucker but BB lips No7 Beautiful Balm is the ideal kissy companion!
Giving the tube a delicate squeeze, I find ointment that glides on gladly, giving a glossy, ever so subtle pink tint on my lips. It’s shiny, it’s moisturising and it’s lasting. Almost perfect. But not quite! What puts me off this product, is the taste. It is distinctly ‘suncreamy’ and my mouth fills with the savour of SPF. It is very honourable of No7 to consider our lips in the blazing sunshine but it definitely leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth. Pun intended!
There are days when nothing seems right. The lip balm taste is just the tip of the iceberg. My attitude, my mood, my mothering ‘skill’s, my connection with hubby…I never do it good enough! Almost perfect but the clipboard is out and the checklist is very long! Why can’t all the boxes be ticked for once? Why can’t I just be different, better…
Today, as I lay in a dark room, I cried out to Father and he answered me saying, ‘I’m closer than your breath. I’m loving you here, now, in this moment.’ I heard him clearly and lovingly and I listened. The self-critical voices were drowned out as I meditated on what he had just spoken to me. The truth in his words gave me the strength I needed, right there and then, to carry on, accepting my imperfections, knowing that he loves as I am. Now.
He’s closer than your breath; Come to him.
