So because my middle peanut was home sick today, I thought it would be a perfect way to break up the monotony of couch time and teach her this technique. I even thought I'd branch out a little by trying beets as well. As a dye not as in trying to dye beets.
As with most things that I try, I shoot first, ask questions later. So I bought a can of beets at the supermarket, did my best Tony the tiger reach and said "This is gonna be GRRRRRRREAT"
Shall you join us on this fun journey?
Start with what you know by gathering your onion skins in a pan
Maybe I should have researched this first and THEN tried the natural dying technique when I had more information or maybe, just maybe, I would have thought to buy those purple onions!!!!!! Doh!
So if you want yellow or light orange, you will have to hard boil the egg like normal. Boil your onion skins separately and then transfer the egg to soak in the hot onion skin mixture until it is the color you desire. This would be the same for purple onion skins. I assume you would get colors in the pink to magenta family depending on how long you let the egg soak.
I had just prayed to the Lord, while taking my bath today about how could I incorporate Him into this post (because frankly that is sometimes the only time I have alone. It is not that I feel especially spiritual while bathing). Wow does He deliver!!
This is the message.
My little egg had picked up the pattern of the paper towel is was resting in and on and it looked lacy and beautiful and so unexpected.
We try very hard to transform ourselves using various methods and we usually don't bother with any prep. We wing it and hope nothing especially horrible or disfiguring happens.
we are beauty unexpected
Why? Because when you study God's word and allow the Holy Spirit to do His work, we pick up the pattern of Jesus Christ and it has become a permanent part of who we are and what we show to people. No make-up or hair dye can achieve those results, nor do these last.
The only thing that lasts is His lacy, beautiful, strong, and Loving hand in our lives by the Transforming power of Christ's death and resurrection.
The stone has been rolled away and He Lives
Always being renewed,
