The Child Within / Simple Health Tips / Friday: Rollerland West and La Madeleine Country French Cafe

“And wherever I climb
Far away and anywhere,
You raise me high
beyond the sky,

Through stormy night
lifting me above.

Whenever I cry,
Far away and anywhere,
You hear me call
when shadows fall.

Your Light of Hope
showing me the way.”

– Elgin Lumpkin, Robert Tigley Gerongco,
Samuel Tigley Gerongco

                  The Child within.

If
you want to give
your precious Child
a Gift,
give the Child within,
the Child you are,
the Child once you were,
the Child you have been
and want to be
again.

Through your Child’s eyes
you can finally come
to see,
that YOU
are no longer blind
to the Love of God
within.

Listen,
you can hear
the Voice of God
in the laughter
of your Child at play,
in the songs
you sing,
in the breeze –
the melody of the leaves
in the trees,
in the Love you see
drifting on a lake
of beautiful
memories.

       On a lake of beautiful memories.

“Let the little children come to me,
and do not hinder them,
for the Kingdom of God
belongs to such as these.

Truly
I tell you,

anyone who will not receive
the Kingdom of God
like a little child
will never enter it.”
Luke 18:15-17

Let the Child
in you
bring you Home.
And by the Grace of God,
you will never again
be alone.

Love that simply will not die.

There is something
time cannot deny.
It lives
in our memories,
it is alive
in our Dreams,
and never echos goodbye.
It is
the Love
that simply will not
die.

The Human Heart
is always in
Prayer.
What it needs,
it fervently desires.
But the mind
does not permit
the Heart
to always be
aware.

When evening
gilds the beautiful sky
and colors the Heart,
Love
filters through the mind,
and stills
our restless Soul.

For the Eye
of your Spirit,
is the Ear
of your Heart.

“O Love
That will not let me go,

I rest my weary Soul in Thee;
I give Thee back the Life I owe,
That in Thine ocean depths its flow
May richer, fuller be.

O Light that followest all my way,georgematheson
I yield my flickering torch to thee;
My Heart restores its borrowed ray,
That in thy sunshine’s blaze its day
May brighter, fairer be.

O Joy that seekest me through pain,
I cannot close my heart to thee;
I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the Promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.
George Matheson

My Friends,
there is Victory
in the Word,
the Sacred Word
of God.
Lift His Love
from each page
sent from Above,
and God
will lift from your
tearful Heart
all doubt.

“Life has meaning
only in the struggle.

Triumph or defeat
is in the hands of God.
So let us celebrate the struggle!”

– Swahili Song

I am
the Flowers
in pastures green.
I am
the birds in flight that sing.
I am
clay
in the Hands
of the Potter.
I am
His Breath
drawn of deep desire,
to be His Child,
and He,
my Father.

Voices combine.
Music rhymes.
Our Hearts
are one.
The Miracle of Life
we Glorify,
and our Love
of Life
becomes a Song.

I am a Flower in pastures green.

Adoramus.
Gloria in Excelsis Deo.
Glory to God in the Highest.

As we sing the Song
of Life,
we cannot deny,
we touch the
Sky.

               Blessed Assurance

The greatest moment
in all of time,
in everything you do,
everything you hear
and say,
in everything you endure,
is the moment
of Blessed Assurance
of God’s Love
for
YOU.

Goodnight.

Touch the Sky
by Ben Crawley

“Climb a tree to touch the sky.
Through the leaves I watch the birds fly,
in the softly swaying breeze
from my nest among the trees.
So the golden light dances
through the pattern of branches
all the colors of autumn,
alive.
As the leaves of evening fall
from my throne above us all,
where the faithful blossom flowers,
here I while away for hour after hour,
climb a tree
to touch the sky.”

Simple Health Tips

Bitters

Combat a yen for sugar by following a Chinese medicine approach: Eat foods such as endive, radicchio, cooked greens, and olives.

Fish

If you suffer from dry eyes, up your seafood intake. Salmon, sardines, and mackerel contain omega-3 fatty acids, which the body uses to produce tears, among other things. Research suggests that people who consume higher amounts of these fats are less likely to have dry eyes.

Probiotics

Supplementing with “good” bacteria (for example, Lactobacillus or Bifidobacterium) may help restore the balance the of bacteria and inhibit the growth of infections. Foods such as naturally fermented sauerkraut, kimchi, and kefir, as well as yogurt with active cultures, also contain these bacteria.

Bilberry

Studies are mixed, but some have found that bilberry, a relative of the blueberry, may improve night vision. During World War II, fighter pilots reported better night vision after eating bilberry jam. 25 to 50 milligrams of bilberry extract will give the best results within the first few hours.

Bananas

People whose diets are rich in potassium may be less prone to high blood pressure. Besides reducing sodium and taking other heart-healthy steps, eat potassium-packed picks such as bananas, cantaloupe, and oranges.

Capsaicin Cream

For sore muscles and joints, apply a cream or ointment that contains capsaicin, the active ingredient in chile peppers, two or three times a day. The heat from the peppers has been shown to help relieve pain.

Garlic

Adding raw or lightly cooked garlic and onions to your meals may help keep you healthy this winter. Both foods appear to possess antiviral and antibacterial properties and are believed to boost immunity.

Tulsi

Research suggests that this Ayurvedic herb, also called holy basil, may help manage levels of the stress hormone cortisol, helping to boost your mood. Look for teas and supplements in health-food stores and follow package directions.

Avocados

For dry skin, incorporate more avocados into your diet. They’re rich in monounsaturated fat and vitamin E, both of which promote healthy skin. Try them on salads and sandwiches, and even in smoothies.

Triphala

Avoid constipation and stay regular with Triphala, an Ayurvedic blend of three fruits that is believed to help tone the gastrointestinal tract. Look for capsules of Triphala and follow package directions.

Arnica

Homeopathic creams, gels, and ointments that contain arnica, a flower similar to the daisy, have long been used to relieve swelling and bruising. Rub into the affected area, but stop using if you develop skin irritation.

GLA

If you’ve ruled out other causes of hair loss, such as stress, overuse of hair-care products, and certain medications and diseases such as hypothyroidism, consider supplementing with evening primrose oil. It’s a good source of gamma-linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid that’s needed for hair growth and is hard to get from your diet. Experts recommend taking 500 milligrams twice a day; expect to wait eight weeks to see results.

Japanese Food

In addition to following good dental hygiene, you can help prevent cavities by adding more shiitake mushrooms and wasabi to your diet. Both foods contain compounds that help fight the bacteria that cause plaque and cavities.

Hydrate

To treat an acute migraine, drink a full glass of water — dehydration can trigger headaches. Even if you need to take a medication for the pain, try wrapping your head with an Ace bandage so that it covers your eyes, then lie down and breathe deeply. This often helps the pain pass more quickly.

Calendula

To ease acne, forgo benzoyl peroxide for lotion or soap made from calendula flowers, which may have antiseptic effects.

Cranberry Juice

Cranberries contain a substance that appears to keep bacteria from sticking to the walls of the urinary tract and has been shown to help prevent UTIs. Because cranberry cocktail is high in sugar, drink unsweetened juice diluted with water or take capsules of powdered cranberry extract.

Mint Tea

Ease occasional indigestion by sipping a cup of peppermint tea after your meal. Peppermint improves the flow of bile, which moves food through the digestive tract more quickly. Use peppermint with caution if you have acid reflux; it can make that problem worse.

Friendly Fungi

The medicinal mushroom cordyceps has traditionally been used to promote lung strength, and some studies show that it may improve symptoms of respiratory conditions such as asthma and bronchitis. Look for capsules or tinctures of cordyceps; follow package directions.

Honey

Research suggests that honey may be more effective than over-the-counter cough syrup at quelling nighttime coughing. Use a medicinal-grade variety such as manuka honey and take up to 2 teaspoonfuls at bedtime.

Broccoli

For healthy gums, put this green vegetable on your grocery list. It’s an excellent source of vitamin C and provides calcium as well, both of which have been linked to lower rates of periodontal disease.

Green Tea

Hot or iced, green tea can help rev up your workout. Its catechins, antioxidants, and caffeine help increase the metabolic generation of heat. Drink a cup about 10 minutes before exercising.
