Walking Your Uneasy Mind / Cancer Dangers of Exposure to Light at Night / ATEX Trash Service

                 Why would you want for more?

If the skies above
ever
echo darkly,
while walking your uneasy mind
toward the Sun
that shines at times,
be aware,
your feet know
where they want you
to go.

The Light of the Sun
is headed your way
and very, very fast,
just over the Horizon
of a new Today
and so many days
past,
but not as fast
as the Love
of your Father
in Heaven Above.
He
is already here.

“Do you not know
that YOU
are a Temple of God

and that the Spirit of God dwells
in you?”
1 Corinthians 3:16

                                          Echo darkly

With your Love of Life
on fire,
you will never, ever
tire
of the things God
has in Mind
for you to do.
Yes.
The future comes
running.
Just close you eyes
and soon you will be
there.
.
For there will never cease to be
poor in the land.
Therefore I command you,
‘You shall open wide your hand
to your brother, to the needy and to the poor,
in your land.’ “

Deuteronomy 15:11

The pathway forward,
down a road
to ever last,
is never slow,
never fast.

It stops,
while you help
another,
to be better off
than you are.

You move forward
through the precious Life
of someone
other
than you.

“But if anyone has the world’s goods
and sees his brother in need,
yet closes his Heart against him,
how does God’s Love
abide in him?

– 1 John 3:17

If everywhere you went,
you have been there
before,
then its time
to say
goodnight,
and close your eyes
and open your Heart,
to the Dawn’s new
Light,
to act in a new part,
never written
before.

YOU
have ALL the riches
a man or woman can claim,
but you
have not claimed them.
If
you have enough to share,
enough to show
you truly care,
answered in Prayer,
why would you want
for more?

Jesus
spoke more about giving
than He did Heaven or hell
combined.

“And as for fortune and as for fame,
I never invited them in,
though it seemed to the world
they were all I desired.
They are illusions
they are not the solutions
they promised to be.
The answer
was here all the time,

I Love you
and hope you
Love me
.”
Tim Rice

Beg
borrow or steal
your share of Love,
Life and Laughter.
For you cannot
take,
what God has bequeathed
in His desire for you,
what you already own.

“He will yet fill your mouth
with LAUGHTER

and your lips
with shouts of JOY.”

Job 8:21

      You cannot take what you already own.

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.
The increased breast cancer risk
in female night shift workers
has been postulated to result from
the suppression of pineal melatonin production by
exposure to LIGHT at night.

Tumor growth response to exposure to light
during darkness
is intensity dependent and the Human nocturnal,
circadian melatonin signal
inhibits human breast cancer growth.
This effect is extinguished
by short-term ocular exposure to bright,
white light at night.

An interesting study in Cancer Research
(read more)
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 (500 %)
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.

Goodnight.

               Why would you want for more?

“NO
truth is ever a lie.
Life

is a moment
in space.
In Love
there is NO
measure of time.”
Barry Gibb, Robin Hugh Gibb

Eternal in its Treasure / Plants to Purify the Air at Home

“There are children in the morning.
They are leaning out for Love
And they will lean that way
Forever.”

– Neil Diamond

Have you seen
the fabulous Moon
dancing
upon the darkly lit waters
that ripple in time,
much like
the beat of your Heart
undulating on the surface of Life,
as it turns
page after page?

To watch in awe and wonder,
is to say
YES
to Life,
and suddenly
leave behind
the things
that kept your Heart
blind.

Precious Existence is before your eyes.

Harmonic dreams
emanate from many things,
as Life
becomes visible.
Life,
my Friends,
is waiting for your Dreams
to seep into
your veins,
until you suddenly realize
your precious Existence,
the magnificence of your splendor,
is suspended
before your eyes.

                 To watch in awe and wonder.

To be rescued
from yourself,
freed from within,
look carefully
at the Wonders
that surround you,
rid yourself
of sorrow and doubt,
say a Prayer
to God Above
and silently
shout,
Amen!

             What is to be lived for.

To truly come
alive,
let some things
die,
like anger and regret.
They deserve
an ignominious death.

The shadow
of your smile
will shelter you
from the raging storms
of so much sorrow,
when yesterday
becomes tomorrow.
What is to be lived for
is not the illusion
of Life,
but the
Reality of Love.

“You cannot do a kindness
too soon,

for you never know
how soon it will be
too late.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Each joyful moment
captured by your Heart
is Eternal in its Treasure.
The brush strokes
of your words and deeds
can become
Heartfelt colors,
expressions of timeless Beauty,
tints and shades
of Loving awareness,
to spread the Universal
Love of God in
YOU.

                Eternal in its Treasure.

“Had I the Heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my Dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly
because you tread on my Dreams’.”
– W. B. Yeats

You are
My Dear Friend,
like so many other
Living Things,
a very fragile and precious
Gift from God.

Celebrate in gratitude
for all
the Blessings in Life.
As you see the unfolding Light,
you feel the Loving rhythm
of the Universe
creating ripples in the Human Heart
greater than
an ocean wave.
Let the Love of God
wash over
YOU.

                          Say YES to Life.

Hours further
can become lost in time,
no longer yours
or mine.

The Beautiful Song of your Life
can be sung
to never fail
to make you smile
and laugh and cry.
And the words
you carve
into the fabric of space,
can breathe Life
into everyone
and become your
Epitaph.
.
Goodnight.

“Freedom
requires you to know who you really are,
what you really want,
and in which direction you are headed.”
Stephanie Tabor

 Plants that can purify the air in your home

By Chaffin Mitchell, AccuWeather staff writer

Harmful pollutants, which are not confined to outdoor spaces, can be found in homes and offices. However, plants can help to improve indoor air quality and clean the air that you and your family breathe.

As reported in a clean air study by NASA, plants can play a major role in removal of organic chemicals from indoor air.

Plants absorb particles from the air at the same time that they take in carbon dioxide, which is then processed into oxygen through photosynthesis.

Stephanie Huckestein, instructor of indoor plants at the Hahn Horticulture Garden of Virginia Tech, said plants remove pollutants from the air by absorbing gases through the pores on their leaves.

Many of the plants proven to clean the air
can be grown indoors, even with limited sunshine.
Huckestien said all plants need light to photosynthesize,
but many are tolerant of lower light levels.
Photosynthesis is the process through which plants
use sunlight to turn carbon dioxide and water
into food.

The Greatest Gift / Flowers Watered by Tears

“You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.”
Edgar Allan Poe

We do not know
if in Life
we dream,
or if our dreams
are real,
and they dream us.

But we do know
if Love is planted,
even in a shallow way,
its roots will deep entwine
and one day
find
YOU.

Those in Love
are never apart.
What you feel
will never depart.

      Give them the lingering Sunsets.

If you have been
the only one
you are thinking of,
try to cast away
your mask of clay,
and come to realize
you were never
all there was
to be.

My Friends,
do not
just leave your children
in your will.
Leave them the will
to Love and Live.
Give them the lingering Sunsets
of your precious smiles,
the ability to walk
in your shoes
for many, many miles,
and the memories
of moments past,
that last
and last
and last.

Memories of moments past.

Children live
in a natural state of wonder.
They pay attention
to every detail of
Life and Living.

What fascinates you about life?
If nothing,
then you are living,
but not alive.

My Dear Friends,
truly fascinating things are constantly happening.
Every day,
every moment of every hour.
Pay attention
to everyone and everything
around you.
Your trip
to the grocery store
will only keep you alive.
It is not
Life!
The errand you are running,
is running you.
The time you waste,
is never wasted.

Put down the telephone.
Turn off the addictive
television.
Turn your gaze away
from cold, unfeeling sights.
Go outside.
This is your HOME.

Wander aimlessly.
Listen intently.
God
in His Wisdom,
is calling your name.
A songbird
sings it,
over and over again.

Let a flower
pick you.
Give it
to someone
in need of Love.

            Let a flower pick you.

There are many,
walking barefoot by a lonely river
of tears,
near a grave
to be.

Human nature
is God’s Love
in you and me.

Yes.
A fascinating mystery of Life
walked right by you.
Did you notice?
Did you look closely?

                       This is your home.

You cannot be Loved,
if you do
look
for someone to Love.
Flowers
just gather in the wind,
until you worship them,
and kneel,
and bring them home,
and thank Almighty God
for saying
Hello.

He
did not pass you by.
His Love was gently
waving in the
breeze.

“Let your mind start a journey
through a strange new world.

Leave all thoughts
of the world you knew before.

Let your Soul take you
where you long to be.”
– Andrew Lloyd Webber

How can you turn your nature
into the Human nature
it longs to be?

Most of the things
we pay attention to
are illusions.
They do not teach us
anything.

                                   Did you notice?

Become as a Child again.
Be Fascinated with everyone
and every Living thing.

“At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying,
“Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them,
and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven.
Whoever humbles himself like this child,
he is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven.”
– Matthew 18:1-4

Thank God
for the fascinating mystery of Life
that is
YOU.

Your Life
begins again,
every day you realize
you are alive,
you are Loved
and in Love
with everyone and living thing.

The greatest Gift
is
knowing.

Goodnight.

“Where love is planted
oh there it grows It grows
and blossoms like a rose.
It has a sweet and pleasant smell
No flower on Earth can it excel.”
– traditional Folk Music

“While on my lonely couch I lie,
I seldom feel myself alone,
For fancy fills my dreaming eye
With scenes and pleasures of its own.
Then I may cherish at my breast
An infant’s form beloved and fair,
May smile and soothe it into rest
With all a Mother’s fondest care.

How sweet to feel its helpless form
Depending thus on me alone!
And while I hold it safe and warm
What bliss to think it is my own!

And glances then may meet my eyes
That daylight never showed to me;
What raptures in my bosom rise,
Those earnest looks of Love to see,

To feel my hand so kindly prest,
To know myself beloved at last,
To think my heart has found a rest,
My life of solitude is past!

But then to wake and find it flown,
The dream of happiness destroyed,
To find myself unloved, alone,
What tongue can speak the dreary void?

A heart whence warm affections flow,
Creator, thou hast given to me,
And am I only thus to know
How sweet the joys of Love would be?”
– Anne Brontë

Flowers Watered by Tears
click here to read full story
The next time you lift a glass or a can filled with so much regret, so much unbearable pain, so much loss of life and precious love, say a prayer for the now nameless millions who have gone before you and left behind a landscape that resembles nothing but misery and death.

Please remember that as you wander further and further down into this valley of the shadow of death, you are taking your loved ones with you. Alcoholism is not a singular disease. It is always accompanied by other victims. It is a social disorder on a magnitude and scale that defies definition. It envelopes and destroys entire families, your other loved ones and friends, and frequently, many others that were simply going down the highway at the same time. Each year the number is in the millions. But the numbers do not matter as much as you do. They are insignificant to those who love you, if you drown in the sea of apathy and alcohol.

The consumption of alcohol frequently leads to a portrait drawn of the loneliest place on earth, a graveyard. And the flowers, yes, those flowers, are not what they seem. They are watered by the tears of the deeply loved and lost. They never blossom in the warm sunlight of tomorrow. They died. Their lives were stolen, along with all the precious dreams.

A Flame To Burn Through Eternity

Child,
touch my Soul with your cries
And the music
Will know what we’ve found.
I’ll hear a hundred goodbyes,
But today I hear only one sound.
The moment we’re living is now.”

– Neil Diamond

Somewhere in time,
the illusion of time,
time immeasurable,

time that
really does not exist,
YOU and I
are alive.

And,
as we often struggle

for something to say,
we suddenly remember,
we already spoke,
with eyes looking past,
looking through
the looking glass,
no smiles sharing,

with keen mind
and Heart unaware,

with a look
that was nothing,
but a lonely stare.

The Truth
can be inglorious
or gloriously sublime,
like the resplendent and radiant sight
of the first Flower
after a long, cold, dark Winter.

“I listen and feel the winds,
the sun, the stars
and know that THE WAY
is ever before me.”
Rose Marie Raccioppi

The Love you find
in Life,
like the first Flower of Spring,
you alone
will find.
And you must
look for it,
for it
to look back.
Reality
is not the mirror
we are holding,
it is
the reflection
of your beautiful Heart.

                         Love’s bouquet

Love’s bouquet
was gathered just over there,
waiting just for
YOU.
Did you pass it by,
with forlorn of all hope,
with a sigh,
not of relief,
but grief?

We seldom come
to know,
the Human Heart is our home.
And this home,
the most Beautiful Place to be,
is a living, vibrant thing,
alive and pulsating
and shouting,
sometimes silently,
with joy and laughter
and pain.

Our Heartfelt homes,
when at last
we come to see,
are forested by
the memory
of people washed of
tears of joy and sorrow,
as we
ever search for
Today,
in a new Tomorrow.

When millions of Angels
sing,
it is an amazing
thing.
And they are waiting
to bring
YOU
home
to your Heart.

“And I beheld,
and I heard the voice of many angels
round about the throne
and the beasts and the elders:
and the number of them was
ten thousand times ten thousand,
and thousands of thousands.”
Revelation 5:11

There is a
Kingdom.
And it is filled with
pure Love.
When two hands
are as one,
two Hearts
beat as
one.

Destiny’s Child
lives where we begin
again,

not at journey’s
end.

There are so very many
Miracles
you can achieve,
when you but
Believe
in yourself.

When you don’t feel
strong enough
to carry on,
know
in your Heart
of Song,
Morning
is always breaking
somewhere
on this Sacred Earth.

In the mind
there are many canyons
filled with walls,
surrounded by space.
curving into new
realities.

My Dear Friends,
space
is essential to rest.
Give yourself
space,
unfettered
and uncluttered,
  or you will always be hiding
in the shadow
of your smiles.

Our Love of Life
is a wondrous thing
and worth remembering.

A Life
filled with Love
was born with our first embrace.
This page was torn
from the Book of Life,
out of timeless space

Yes,
Love is a wondrous thing.

Take the hand
of your Sacred Child,
and with fervent Prayer,
  Pray that you may truly live
and that you may
share
all the Love
you can give.

What you give,
your receive.

The Light
of your Love
will become
a Flame to burn
through Eternity.

Goodnight.

Eternity In The Human Heart / ADHD Diets / Classes Resume Sept. 5

“He has made everything
Beautiful

in its time.
He has also set Eternity
in the Human Heart.”
– Ecclesiastes 3:11

                                 Beautiful in its time.

The beginning of Life,
and the end of Living,
are like the morning
and evening Sky,
streaked with the Beauty of
Truth.

A Clarion Call
begins
ALL,
and your time
is here.
Wake up
and come alive.

For Earthly Life
is but a vapor,
in the eyes of Eternity.

“A vapor is short-lived.
You see the mist at one moment
and a few minutes later it’s gone.
You see the steam
coming out of your coffee cup

and in just a second,
it disappears into the air.
Life is like that.
– bible.org

YOU,
are the Harmonious Symphony
of God’s Ultimate Expression.
And your fascination
with Life
can turn into Love
for you,
and into the
Joy of Living.

         Fascination with Life.

Don’t deny
the precious moments
you feel.
Even wandering Rainbows
leave a bit
of their color,
just for YOU.
Look for it
in your Heart.

      Sing your name.

And if you listen,
not with the mind,
but with your Sacred
Heart,
the morning Songbird
will sing
your name.
And you will know
the lingering Sunsets
grownups seldom understand,
peer through
the curtains
of pain and sorrow,
as this day ends
with a promise
of Tomorrow.

Hearts in Heaven
beat in time
with yours.
And a song
of Salvation,
by the deliverance
of God,
endures.
Celebration
will be yours,
as the illusions
of this Life
are cast aside,
and YOU
become more Beautiful
and real,
in the next.

                A promise of tomorrow.

When Hearts
deny the brevity
of the moment,
the Light
of a Star,
posing as mine,
passes for
Time.

What an illusion
this Life
can become.

May Life
always bring you
your wishes
upon a Star.

“Because the Holy Spirit of God
is in you,
you are never alone.
You are never hopeless.
You are never powerless.
Because He is in you
and with you wherever you go,
He is never distant.”
– Stormie Omartian

Do not deny
every moment you feel.
These moments
are real.

Hearts are hardened
when they
betray such
to each other.

Enjoy Life
at your leisure,
as you happily concede
the mandates of Heaven
lay inscribed
in the Heart,
and in what
you Believe.

             Streaked with the Beauty of Truth.

Life
is not an answer,
but many, many
questions.
They lay
between every beat
of every Heart,
as silence shouts
through every night
of never knowing
Love
is the question,
and the answer.

My Dear Friends,
take a few moments
each day
and look deeply
into your Child’s eyes.
Look
until you feel your Child’s
Heart
beating in time
with yours.
Listen intently,
and you can hear
the spaces
between your child’s
thoughts.

    Every precious Living thing.

Then softly speak,
and fill the voids
with Love.
And one day,
ALL thoughts will be
overflowing,
with Love for
YOU,
and for everyone,
and every
precious Living thing.
Eternity
lies enfolded within
a Sacred
sigh
of relief,
knowing your child
is safe,
within the sound of your voice,
and joyfully living
between two beats
of your Heart,
the one past
and the one
to be.

Eternity
lies between
not knowing,
and knowing,
YOU
are
within reach.

Eternity
is in every Moment.

Goodnight.

Love is the question, and the answer.

From our Friends at

ADHD diets
haven’t been researched a lot. Data is limited and results are mixed. Many health experts, though, think that what you eat and drink may play a role in helping symptoms.

One expert, Richard Sogn, MD, says that whatever is good for the brain is likely to be good for ADHD. You may want to eat:

A high-protein diet. Beans, cheese, eggs, meat, and nuts can be good sources of protein. Eat these kinds of foods in the morning and for after-school snacks. It may help improve concentration.

Fewer simple carbohydrates. Cut down on how many of these you eat: candy, corn syrup, honey, sugar, products made from white flour, white rice, and potatoes without the skins.

More complex carbohydrates. These are the good guys. Load up on vegetables and some fruits, including oranges, tangerines, pears, grapefruit, apples, and kiwi. Eat this type of food in the evening and it may help you sleep.

More omega-3 fatty acids. You can find these in tuna, salmon, and other cold-water white fish. Walnuts, Brazil nuts, and olive and canola oil are other foods with these in them. You could also take an omega-3 fatty acid supplement. The FDA approved an omega compound called Vayarin as part of an ADHD management strategy.
