     While I am whispering Amen.

Christmas is about giving,
And receiving
The Love of Christ.
It’s a celebration
Of living,
And of the Gift
Of Life.

My Dear Friends,
God brought us into this world
As a child,
And He wants His child
Back again.

          We are all children of God.

“See what great love
the Father has lavished on us,
that we should be called
children of God!
And that is what we are!”
– I John 3:1

baby

He Blesses us
By bringing children
Into our lives.
And in many ways, some unaware,
Childlike are we,
By pretense of our being.
Try as we may
Not to be,
We are all children of God,
Even on Christmas Day.

      We can become a child again.

There is an infinite
Number of days
Between now and forever.
And an infinite
Number of ways
To ever and ever
Say “I Love You”.
Do not count them,
Live them,
And Love the time away,
And say
“I Love You”
Each and every day
In countless ways.

  He wants His child back again.

To turn our time around
And begin again,
To see infinity
In a drop of rain,
And a rainbow
In our tears of joy,
To finally stop the pain,
Become His child again.
And in our very precious lives,
Our childhood will remain.

       It’s a celebration of living.

When we know,
When we finally know,
In our brief
And shining moment,
In the time we have left
To call this Life
A living thing,
My breath can sound
Like something
I would sing,
Long enough to form
A single precious thought
About another
Beautiful, living, breathing thing.

About you.

Never will Love end, it only begins over and over again.

And in my voice,
In its last offering,
Will you hear
Above all and every other
Living thing,
A perpetual lullaby
I sing,
“I Love You”
Over and over again.

For never will Love end,
It only begins
Over and over again.
It is a beautiful song that sings,
The sound of a Human Heart,
Beating in Time
With God,
Who breathes precious Life
Into every living thing
Over and over again,
While I am Whispering Amen,
Amen,
Amen.

Dangers of Exposure to Light at Night

Sleeping while exposed to light at night
causes a dramatic drop in blood melatonin levels,
setting the stage for growth and proliferation
of breast cancer cells.

An interesting study in the
December 1, 2005 issue of Cancer Research
provides new information that
might partly explain why this is.

This study provides evidence
that may partly explain why breast cancer
is five times more common in industrialized nations
compared to less developed countries.
It may also explain why visually challenged people
have lower rates of cancer than people
who have no problems with vision.

So my Dear Friends,
Don’t be in the dark
About this.
Well, actually,
You do need to be
In the dark!

You know what I mean.

Let us prevent
Needless suffering.
There are so many things
You can do.
And to live in deep regret
Need not be one of them.
Spend a few moments
In thoughtful research and study.
And then do
The common sense things.

And thank the Lord,
Our God,
Who gives us precious Life,
And Blesses us
In countless ways.
