DIY Herbal Windchimes

Herbal Windchimes 




We love herbs and our family has been learning and working with them a lot.  Have you been to our herbal shop online? MashaAllah alhamdulilah it's pretty awesome!!!
Here: http://teamrahimherbals.storenvy.com


Our older three boys (8,7, and 5) have been extra interested and very involved in making Salves, lip balm and more. Homeschooling has consisted of herbal knowledge and let's just say… it's been a hit in our home. I really want the children to learn and pass on this wonderful knowledge along with learning Qur'an and duaas ... Spiritual healing and physical and emotional healing are all connected and if one area suffers it effects the others.



Not only do we love herbs we also love canning our homemade jellies and jam. We have so many mason jar rings that they came in handy for our herbal windchimes. Beautiful smells of chamomile and lavender with beautiful yellow dandelions and golden calendula graced our chimes… fresh green plantain, leaves from yellow wood sorrel and mint made this an aromatherapy and artsy experience.

The children smelled their windchimes as they sprinkled herbs and talked about the different healing properties of the herbs we used. Chamomile and lavender for relaxation, yarrow for nosebleeds, plantain for mosquito bites and calendula for skin etc 


Light breeze makes them clink and memories are blown in our minds and settled in our hearts.

To make this
Use various herbs
Yarn
Sticks
Different size jar rings
Contact paper


Put the rings on the contact paper and trace them
Have your child place the herbs in the circles and then cut them out and place the contact paper in the rings tie string to it and tie to the stick.
At the end use a big string to tie to each end of the stick so it can be hung up outside or inside as wall decoration.

The Passing Of A Prince

One month later...  If you would have told me, that I would be eventually blogging as a widow, I would have probably said that I couldn't imagine it!

Well here I am, writing as a widow. My husband (may Allah have mercy on him, and grant him jannah ameen ameen) passed away last month, December 20th, 2016, from complications from his condition.  My whole life changed and I am learning to heal and process this tremendous loss with our six children.

I met my husband in 2006 mashaAllah, and as I like to tell people, I started this adventure 10 yrs ago when I met a Prince from Kings County (Brooklyn NYC) married him, and became his princess alhamdulilah. When we first met, I felt like "wow this handsome guy, I cant believe he is even giving me the time of day." Lord knows I am thankful for all the time of our days, our road trips, and adventures.

I think of an old status message I shared on facebook
" I've dedicated ten years of my heart to this loveable adventurous g…

5 Ways To Love Your Husband MORE

I had to blow the dust off the blog tonight, as I only write when I am feeling inspired. SubhanAllah, tonight feels like a good night to share a few thoughts on the blog.
How can you, love your husband more?


1.) Speak words that will uplift his spirit. I remember when I would be feeling nervous, and anxious about some event, and my husband (may Allah have mercy on him, ameen) would say encouraging words, that made me feel like the most confident woman in the world. We have the ability to be that voice of encouragement in our mates lives. What mountains we cannot move, when our spouse speaks life into our being! Through out the day, speak to your mate in a way that will help them be better. 
2.) Put your love into action: Yes you can say "I love you" all day long, but adding to that by doing loving gestures, show and prove what we feel inside. Surprising our spouse by writing a love note, or sending a loving text, adds a little more joy to their days. In a world where there …

5 Ways To Love Yourself MORE

Yep, there I am, jumping on the trampoline in my sisters yard yesterday. As I told a friend, you can't help but smile on a trampoline. I couldn't jump and be angry, or feel sad at the same time. 
Alhamdulilah I felt like reaching for the sky, free, and alive. I haven't felt that way since my husband passed away last month (December 20th, 2016). Life has not been the same. Yesterday I decided to get some fresh air and I felt good. It was nice to step outside for a little bit.
My last post was written on loving your husband's more, which can also be applied to wives. Our time here isn't long, and in losing my husband, I am extra reminded to encourage wives to love their husbands more. That has always been part of my blog's goal, but God is telling me to remind women more, through my own experience.

But in loving your husbands more, do not forget yourself. You are important. Yes, some women need to be reminded that they are important. You have to take care of you…
