A Very Precious Place To Be / Kindness and Generosity / Stock Show

Shakespeare preperation & around school 033One day
A pilot looked down

To the shores of a river bank
Where once,
When he was young,
He would play.

Remembering that,
As a child,
He would look up
Hoping one day to fly,
To be where he is today.

And now,
What would he give,
To return to the shores
Of his youth,
Back to the place
Where once he dreamed.

We are all looking up,
From a very precious place to be,
For any child,
For you,
And for me.
It is a sacred place,
This moment.

But far more treasured,
More than our
Deep longing to be,
In any
Time or place,
We long to be
With someone we Love,
To a place
In their heart,
Where once we lived.

Let us not wait
With such longing
In our lonely hearts

To look down,
From the Heavens Above
To Heaven Below.

Heaven is within you,
In this moment,
In this hour,
This day.
And tomorrow,
Tomorrow
May never be.

not even intelligence.”

5 Foods that Keep You Thin
By Kristin McGrath

Apples
According to Alan Aragon, a nutritionist and author of “Girth Control: The Science of Fat Loss & Muscle Gain,” crunchy foods in particular can trick a person into feeling fuller. The act of chewing may send satiety signals to your body, he says, making you think you’ve eaten more than you really have.

Almonds
One ounce of this food contains only 167 calories, plus it packs roughly 6 g of protein and 3 g of fiber, both nutrients that can make you feel full.

Salmon
A study published in the “International Journal of Obesity” found that when dieters ate salmon a few times a week, they lost about two more pounds than those who didn’t include seafood in their meals.

Eggs
Research has shown that eating eggs at breakfast can help you fight weight gain all day long.

Tomatoes
Like other foods high in fiber, they can help keep you feeling satiated.
Keep in mind that there is evidence that canned tomatoes can be carcinogenic. Always select fresh produce.

Not only are you and I contingent,
We are very improbable!

Yet here we are,
Wondrous to behold.

Theologically, we are no accident.
God has always known us and loved us.

(Scripture: Jeremiah 1:5)
“Before I formed you
In the Womb
I knew you.”

The heart and mind of God
Has always known you.
You are beautifully made,
In the Very Image of God.

You are a marvelous Creation.
You’re not just one in a million.
you’re one in a 102,685,000.

Science Says
Lasting Relationships
Come Down To
Basic Traits
by EMILY ESFAHANI SMITH, The Atlantic

(My gratitude to Travis Andrews for this wonderful information.)

Of all the people who get married, only three in ten remain in healthy, happy marriages, as psychologist Ty Tashiro points out in his book “The Science of Happily Ever After,” which was published earlier this year.

Here are some of the highlights:

A powerful kindness strategy revolves around shared joy.

If you look at what drives the deterioration of many relationships, it’s often a breakdown of kindness.

Among couples who not only endure, but live happily together for years and years, the spirit of kindness and generosity guides them forward.

Amazingly,

Scientists can predict with up to 94 percent certainty whether couples — straight or gay, rich or poor, childless or not — will be broken up, together and unhappy, or together and happy several years later. Much of it comes down to the spirit couples bring to the relationship. Do they bring kindness and generosity.

We’ve all heard that partners should be there for each other when the going gets rough. But research shows that being there for each other when things go right is actually more important for relationship quality.

Among couples who not only endure, but live happily together for years and years, the spirit of kindness and generosity guides them forward.

Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have found that a fundamental new mechanism for the known beneficial effects of resveratrol — the grape ingredient touted as an elixir of youth: it powerfully activates an evolutionarily ancient stress response in human cells.

“This stress response represents a layer of biology that has been largely overlooked, and resveratrol turns out to activate it at much lower concentrations than those used in prior studies,” said senior investigator Paul Schimmel, professor and member of the Skaggs Institute for Chemical Biology. The discovery is reported in Nature.

Resveratrol is a compound produced in grapes, cacao beans, Japanese knotweed and other plants in response to stresses including infection, and ultraviolet radiation. Resveratrol is available in pill or tablet form from your local health food store.

It has attracted widespread scientific and popular interest over the past decade, as researchers have reported that it extended lifespan and prevented diabetes in obese mice and vastly increased the stamina.
