Most of us want our appliances to last a long time. However, many of us don’t do too much to maintain or care for our appliances. Believe it or not, proper care and maintenance can actually extend the life and condition of your appliance. The maintenance for most of these appliances would take very little time. Most require a thorough cleaning periodically and a possible service visit from time to time.

Daily Maintenance
You should make a habit of wiping down your appliances, especially after you’ve cooked or used them in some way. This will prevent the build-up of grease and dirt and also keep the appliance working as it should. Many people don’t realize the impact that keeping your appliance clean can have on its ability to function well. For example, a gas stove that’s never cleaned can become clogged and may be difficult to light. This would require service from a company like wolf stove repair Florida. It’s possible that this service wouldn’t be needed if the stove was clean and free of built-up food and grease.

Checking the Owners Manual
Take some time and read the owners manual. The owners manual is filled with information that will help you care for your appliance and let you know what the warranty covers. If something goes wrong that’s already covered it will save you money. Familiarize yourself with the service schedule, proper care and maintenance, and the warranty.

Having Your Appliance Serviced
Some appliances require servicing during different periods of time. Try to follow the service schedule, if there is one. It will help you to maintain your appliance and avoid problems that could be offset by following the routine service calls. A service technician may be able to recognize problems before they become too big, which could also save you money.

The proper care and maintenance of your appliance will extend the life and health of your appliance. Take the time to clean it regularly. Consult the owners manual for warranty information and care instructions and recommendations. Try to maintain the cleanliness of your appliance everytime you use it, if not every day. If you take care of your appliance it will take care of you by serving you a long time.

Food for the Soul : Lay Aside Every Weight

This is a Food for the Soul post on Hebrews 12, verses 1 and 2. This is going to be a series of posts but I will begin on the the first point on Laying Aside Every Weight.

Hebrews 12:1-2 

“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

According to Bible Commentaries, the book of Hebrews was written to a group of Christians who were tempted to ditch their faith in Jesus due to persecution. Thus, Hebrews 12 was written as a reminder for them not to give up on their faith.

Lay Aside Every Weight

“Let us lay aside every weight (Hebrews 12:1b).

Our Christian walk can be likened into a race. No serious runner wants to load himself up with the things which will get in the way when he runs. Right? A runner always has minimum apparel because they don’t want anything to weigh them down when they run.

What are the things that weigh you down particularly in your walk with God?

Sinful Habit

And the sin that easily ensnares us.. (Hebrews 12:1c)

It might be a sinful habit that is draining your spiritual strength. It might be personal issues like bitterness, unforgiveness, insecurities and the like. All of these are heavy weights. You can’t successfully run the Christian race carrying all these at your back.

Friends

Our friends might also be dragging us down spiritually. If so, avoid these people. Put an end to these ties so that you can run the race unhindered.

Materialism

Love for the things of this world might also drag us down in our walk with God. Sometimes our hobbies are taking much of our attention away from the race that God wants us to run. One example of this is spending too much time into social media, TV, sports and less time with God.

Lay Aside! Can you identify now what is slowing you down in your spiritual walk? Lay aside anything that you know is slowing you down spiritually. Begin today by opening everything to God!

Have a Blessed Sunday!

Classic Wedding Styles They’ll Wear Again

Most brides and grooms think that they have to have formal attire in order to have an elegantly dressed wedding party, but classic styles that can be worn again for other occasions can be just as beautiful. Many times these fashions are less expensive, and your bridesmaids and ushers will feel more comfortable.

Bridesmaids

You can actually have floor length dresses without choosing formal gowns for your girls to wear. Choose styles that can be shortened later on for other occasions. Look for dresses in your wedding colors, but avoid sequins and beading that will be too flashy for every day functions. Ask the bridesmaids to pick shoes in a neutral color, but let them pick the style. No one wants a pair of shoes they’ll only wear once. For example, ask them to buy white shoes, but let them decide if they want heels or flats.

Groomsmen

A basic suit is always stylish and can be worn for other functions later on. Tuxedos are nice, but they are often expensive for one day of use. Black suits can have a very formal look, especially if all of the men have matching pants, shirts, and jackets. Just like you did for the girls, ask them to all pick shoes in a specific color but let them choose the style. Men’s skinny ties  can be used to coordinate their look with the bridesmaids’ dresses. Online retailers like Necktie Emporium offer a variety of patterns, stripes, and solids.

The Children

Ring bearers and flower girls are adorable no matter what they wear, but you can still achieve a formal look with clothes that are comfortable and affordable. Children outgrow their clothing quickly, so the trick here is to find something cheap. Look for their outfits after holidays like Christmas or Easter. Little suits and dresses are often drastically discounted during these times of the year.

Your wedding party will appreciate the comfort and affordable price of these clothing options when it comes to your big day. Best of all, you won’t be sacrificing that elegant look you are after. One day you will look back at your wedding photos and be glad you chose a classic style rather than the latest trends in formal wear.
