The Beautiful Abstract Art of Life / 7 Nutrients You May Be Missing / Friday: Fort Worth Stock Show

“He has made everything Beautiful
in its time.

He has also set Eternity
IN the human heart;
yet no one can fathom what God has done
from beginning to end.”
– Ecclesiastes  3:11  NIV

Pure energy and cosmic flow.

Our Children
are unapologetic
in yearning to know

the Source of all Existence,
the Ultimate Meaning
of Life.

In the process
of helping them to contemplate
the seemingly unfathomable,
we can come to know that
in our Love
for our children,
there is the ultimate meaning
of Life,
there is understanding,
there is Hope for them,
and for all

Mankind.

A vivacious Love of Life and Living.

Our quest
to understand
the Beautiful Abstract Art
that is a Child,
invites you to discover
something about yourself,
and
about the meaning
of Life itself.

It is not easy to comprehend
  our Portraits drawn from Living,
blended as they are
with the illusions of Life.

Our reason for Being
appears
to be open to interpretation.

Our representation on Earth,
in such brevity
as is this one moment,
is as fleeting
as the movement of clouds
across the horizon.

He has made everything Beautiful.

Understanding the Art
that is your Child,
requires a truly open mind,
devoid of Judgement.
When you look at the Living Portrait
of such a precious Gift,
what do you see?

Whirling shapes,
appearing at times
to approach the speed of Light,
seemingly weightless,
colorfully arrayed patterns
in constant motion.

I know.
Children seem to be
that way.

But look closely,
and you will see
in the language of Nature,
and in the Nature of
you precious Child,

a vivacious Love
of Life and Living.

   In the language of Nature.

 Pure energy and cosmic flow,
a Divine message
that in the dynamic of Life,
is the Divinity of Love.


For they are Beautifully
intertwined.
They are one.

The Abstract Art
that is our Lives,
and the Lives of our Children,
is truly splendiferous,
delighting our intellectual and emotional admiration.
But,
this Art
is subject to interpretation,

which doesn’t openly declare
what it is all about.

It draws you in,

it requires you to look,
to inquire,
to listen,

to truly wonder.

My Friend,
you must embark upon a new Journey
to understand this Painting,
this Portraiture of Life,
this precious Child of yours,
and see where it takes you.

The Beautiful Abstract Nature of Life
gives you the freedom
to interact,
to interpret,

to explore,
to truly wonder about the meaning
of the Masterpiece of Living.

As fleeting as the movement of clouds.

Our interaction with the Beautiful Works
of God’s Blessed Creations
is intensely personal.
It enriches our own Life
and becomes a
Sacred awareness.

proverbs_30-5 Our goal,
My Friend,
is not to stop
the forward motion
of Life.
We are here
to direct,
to point the Way
toward the Will of God,
to Live in Love
and to Love
Life.

“It costs so little
to teach a child to love,
and so much
to teach him to hate.”

– Father Edward Flanagan

We may not realize
that the Beautiful Art we are
emanates from an Artist
with an incomprehensible understanding
and an Abiding Love
of every Creation.

The Beautiful Works of God’s Blessed Creations.

We are perfectly rendered
Portraits.
We are His Children,

gifted with the freedom
to express our own creativity,
unencumbered by the weight
of the will
of anyone other
than ourselves.

“I will praise thee;
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
  marvelous are thy works;
and that my soul knoweth right well.”
– Psalms 139:14  (KJV)

 The searching, exploratory motions
and expressions of your child
can be confusing,
even alarming or menacing.

But Art and Life
are about form, shade and tone,
line, texture, pattern, composition
and complex processes.
These qualities describe
what the Art of Life
and the experience of Living
look like
and how we were
Created.

Art and Life are about form, shade and tone.

Life is an exploration.
And meaning
is derived from emotion
and experience.

Do you want to understand
your Child?
Try to compose a story
about the Beautiful sounds
of a songbird,
or a poem
about Love.

The Beautiful Work of Art
you are,
cannot be explained in words.
Your existence
far surpasses the essence of description.
  The work of Art that is
all Mankind,
was lifted into higher Spheres
of Creation,
when God breathed His Life
into us.

Allow yourself to be absorbed by the Beautiful Art.

Accept that you are
what you are.
Accept your Child.

The meaning
of your Life
is far, far beyond
what you will ever
comprehend,
and far more Beautiful
than you can ever
behold.

 Let the Will of God
wash over you,
and guide you.

Lift your eyes
and let your Heart

dance in wonder
over His Beautiful Painting,
that is you.

The way God provides
is always
filled with Beauty.

Play with the Paintings that surround you.

Let the Beautiful Symphony
of your precious Being

wash over your Soul.

Let it be.

Let your eyes
play with the Paintings
that surround you,
envelope you,
are you.

Enjoy the flow,
follow the twists and turns
with your Heart,
where ever they lead,
where ever they go.

Allow yourself to be absorbed
by the Beautiful Art
of this Life.

 The work of Art that is Life.

Emotions and memories will emerge
from existence.
How you interact with them
is how they
speak to you,
how the various elements

affect you.

Take a close look
at the work of Art

that is Life,
that is your Child,

that is You.
You are the Texture,
the Strength,
the Thought
from a Loving Brushstroke
of God.

What a difference
knowing makes,
knowing you are the Living,
Beautiful, Abstract
Masterpiece of Art
made in the Image
and by the Loving Hand
of Almighty God.

And so is
your precious Child.

Goodnight.

7 Nutrients You May Be Missing in Your Diet
by Kathleen M. Zelman, MPH, RD, LD

Potassium

Like most Americans, you probably need more of this mineral. It’s good for your blood pressure and may lower your risk for kidney stones and bone loss. Your muscles and nerves need it to work right, too. It’s found naturally in milk, potatoes, sweet potatoes, bananas, avocados, and legumes.

Magnesium

Spinach is good for you, but do you know why? Along with beans, peas, whole grains, and nuts (especially almonds), it’s a good source of magnesium. Put some or all of these foods on your plate to help prevent disease.

If you have stomach or intestinal problems, type 2 diabetes, or long-term alcohol abuse, or if you’re an older adult, you’re more likely to be short on magnesium

Vitamin A

It supports good vision, healthy immunity, and tissue growth. There are two types of vitamin A: retinol and carotenoids, like beta-carotene. To get more into your diet, focus on orange and yellow fruits and vegetables, like sweet potatoes, carrots, and winter squash. You’ll also get it from spinach and broccoli.

Vitamin D

Your bones, muscles, and nerve fibers all need it. It also helps keep your immune system in its prime.

Your body can make vitamin D when you get enough sunshine. But too much sun is bad for you, so you can also eat foods including salmon, mackerel, and mushrooms exposed to ultraviolet light. Liver, cheese, and egg yolks have small amounts. Milk, some brands of orange juice, and many cereals are fortified with it, too.

Calcium

There’s more to this mineral than healthy teeth and bones. It’s also key for your muscles, including your heart. With potassium and magnesium, it might even help prevent high blood pressure. Dairy is an excellent source. Other foods with calcium include canned salmon, kale, and broccoli. Remember, you need vitamin D for your body to absorb calcium.

Vitamin C

This vitamin, found in many fruits and vegetables, boosts the growth of bone and tissue. It’s an antioxidant, too, so it might also help protect your cells from damage.

Fiber

You can get loads of benefits from whole grains, beans, and veggies and fruits. A high-fiber diet can help lower your cholesterol and keeps you regular. Plus, it might lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers. Extra fiber is great if you want to lose a few pounds: It fills you up, so you eat less.
