When The Final Act Is Over / Children Face Higher Health Risk From Cell Phones / RJ is Five Today!

When the final act
is over
and you are left
standing all alone,
God,
and only God,
will be there
to take you
Home.

No one
Loves You,
like
God Loves You.

We have all
been met
with great temptation.
There are
so many faces
lined in pain –
with emotions
changing hue,
seeing through
the colors
of a Life
filled with so many tears,
as if we were left
standing in the
rain.

        Emotions changing hue.

The Spring
of our lives
brings its Promise.
And in the Fall
of precious Loving
and Living,
we feel God’s Promise,
to return us Home,
where
we belong.

“Be still for the Power of the Lord
Is moving in this place.
He comes to cleanse and heal,
To Minister His Grace.
No work too hard for Him.
In Faith receive from Him.
Be still for the Power of the Lord.”
David J. Evans

Life
can be
a Beautiful Song,
with a clear and simple message –
a call for us all
to focus on the Love
of God
for you and me
.
And,
in so doing,
we find there is nothing
the Heart
cannot mend,
nothing
it cannot forward
in Time,
send.
.The Universality
of Faith,
the commonality of
compassion and care,
we may dare
to share,
to inspire within
each moment,
within each day
of every Life,
the Universal
Language of Love.
Home
is not just
where the Heart is,
it is
one and the same.
It is
the beginning
and the end
of
everything.

Seeing through the colors.

.My Dear Friends,
our beginning
is near
the end.
.
Let us
thank one another,
and the Lord
we Love,
for the precious, Sacred
moments
we take for granted,
and share.
And let us
implore
one another,
to share even more
of the precious Time
that is given,
to Love
and cherish
and adore.

Its Promise.

Every Spark
of our Compassion
becomes
an Eternal Flame.
Every act
of Kindness,
the
same.
.
Goodnight.

Where the Heart is.  RJ is five years old today (Wednesday). Happy Birthday!

“The stars are twinkling in the skies,
The Earth is lost in slumbers deep;
So hush, my sweet, and close thine eyes,
And let me lull thy Soul to sleep.
Compose thy dimpled hands to rest,
And like a little birdling lie
Secure within thy cozy nest
Upon my loving mother breast,
And slumber to my lullaby,
So hushaby, hushaby,
Hush my sweet and close thine eyes,
And slumber to my lullaby.
The moon is singing to a star

The little song I sing to you;
The father Sun has strayed afar,
As baby’s sire is straying too.
And so the loving Mother moon
Sings to the little Star on high;
And as she sings, her gentle tune
Is borne to me, and thus I croon,
For thee, my Sweet, that lullaby
Of hushaby, hushaby,
There is a little one asleep
That does not hear his Mother’s song;
But angel watchers – as I weep –
Surround his grave the night-tide long.
And as I sing, my Sweet, to you,
Oh, would the lullaby I sing –
The same sweet lullaby he knew,
While slumb’ring on this bosom too –
Were borne to him on Angel’s wing!
So hushaby, hushaby,
Lullaby, Lullaby.”
from “A Lullaby” by Eugene Field

Children Face Higher Health Risk From Cell Phones
By Roxanne Nelson

Extensive scientific reports have detailed non-heat-related effects from long-term exposure. Although government warnings have been issued worldwide, most of the public is unaware of such warnings, they write.”There are toys being sold to infants and toddlers that are dangerous,” Morgan says. “The risk from exposure to any carcinogen is higher in children, and the younger the child, the higher the risk.The review authors “continue to raise appropriate concerns related to the ever-increasing role of technologies that emit nonionizing radiation, including cell phones and certain toys,” says L. Dade Lunsford, MD, professor of neurological surgery at the University of Pittsburgh. Lunsford was not involved in the study.”They indicate that certain types of tumors, at least as reported, may have increased in incidence, including the most malignant brain tumors and perhaps hearing nerve tumors,” he tells Medscape Medical News. But he says there are issues with some of the data, and that many of the reports are anecdotal. Also, it’s unclear whether the perceived increase in tumors may be due to better diagnoses at earlier stages, he says.The potential health risks related to cell phone use, especially brain tumors, have remained a hot-button issue. Studies have been inconsistent and results have been conflicting. There is no consensus about the degree of cancer risk posed by cell phone use, if any at all.

Take-Home Messages About Safe Use

Wireless devices are now part of everyday life, “but they can be used in a manner that is safe enough,” Morgan says.

Morgan and his colleagues have made some recommendations.

The first is that “distance is your friend.” He says holding a cell phone 15 cm (about 6 inches) from your ear “provides a 10,000-fold reduction in risk.”

Unless a cell phone is turned off, it is always radiating. When not in use, it should not be kept on the body. The best place for a cell phone is somewhere like a purse, bag, or backpack.

Devices should be kept away from a pregnant woman’s abdomen, and a mother should not use a cell phone while nursing, Morgan says. “And baby monitors should not be placed in an infant’s crib.”

Children and teens need to know how to use these devices safely. Cell phones should not be allowed in a child’s bedroom at night, he says. “The Pew Research Center has reported that 75% of preteens and early teens sleep all night with their cell phone under their pillow.””Boys should not keep a cell phone in their front pants pockets,” he says. There is a potential harm to sperm, although no studies of young boys have determined whether or not early exposure to MWR has any effect on sperm after puberty, he says.”And girls should not place their cell phone in their bras,” he says. This recommendation was based on a case study of four young women with a history of putting cell phones in their bras, and who developed breast cancer – two at the age of 21.Because the risk snowballs, and more radiation is absorbed with more hours of use, children should be taught to use their wireless phone as little as possible, Morgan says. Landlines, Skype, and computer phone services (when connected to the Internet with a cable) don’t give off radiation, and parents should encourage their kids to use those.Finally, Wi-Fi routers in the home should be placed away from where people, particularly children, spend the most time.The authors note that some studies have shown an increased risk for brain cancer with cell phone use, although some of these data have been disputed. In recent years, glioblastoma (a type of brain tumor) rates have increased in Denmark and the United States, and brain cancer incidence has increased in Australia, according to data drawn from cancer registries. The average time between exposure to a carcinogen and the diagnosis of a resulting solid tumor is 3 or more decades, so it will likely be several decades before tumors induced by childhood MWR exposure are diagnosed, they write.
