That Is When Life Begins / Safety and First Aid Tips for Kids / Friday: Brandi Cottingham Art Studio / School Calendar 2020-21

“What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no Human mind
has conceived – 
the things God has prepared
for those who Love Him”
1 Corinthians 2:9

Lake, Sea, Water, Wave, Sunset

The Window of Heaven
can open,
when our Sacred Hearts
spread their Wings
and fly out
into this World.

My Dear Friends,
Yesterday is the past,
Tomorrow is the future,
and Today is a Gift,
so we may call it the
present.

Let us not
Live in deep regret about the past,
or worry about Tomorrow.
Live for Today,
 the present of this precious moment,
and without worries or fears,
anxiety or tears.

The longer we stay
in this moment,
the longer we pause
to reflect upon our precious gift
of Time,
and the longer we are aware
of Life.
.

There is nothing to lose
by being in the moment.
We have more choices,
and we can  s t r e t c h  the moment
longer and longer,
until we realize that the real you,
the Spiritual you,

never truly dies.
What is real lives
forever.

“How does a moment last forever?
How does our happiness endure?
Through the darkest of our troubles
Love is beauty,
Love is pure

Love pays no mind to desolation,
It flows like a river through the Soul,
Protects, proceeds, and perseveres
And makes us whole.
Minutes turn to hours,
days to years then gone.

But when all else has been forgotten,
Still our song lives on.
How does a moment last forever:
When our song lives on.”
Tim Rice

Love
is a timeless story.

Nature, Lawn, Vista, Outdoors, BeautifulThe people of this frail and fragile World
need our help.
So

let us Truly Live
in this moment,
by Truly Loving
them.

Yes,
let us Live
by Loving.
When we Live

in God’s Heart,
we are
Truly
alive.

“Kind words are like honey –
sweet to the Soul
and healthy for the body.”

Proverbs 16:24
.
The windows of our homes
allow natural light to enter
and illuminate our Lives
and warm our Hearts.
And in a like manner,
WE
can allow natural
Spiritual Illumination

to emanate from the open window
of our Hearts.

It can pour the pure Light
of our Soul
out and into the precious Lives

all around us.

oh Lord of my Heart.
Nought be all else to me,
save that Thou art.
Thou my best thought by day or by night
Waking or sleeping,
Thy presence my
Light.”
St. Dallán Forgaill

The Blessing
of unconditional Love
brings us such abundant

Light.

“And the Light shineth in darkness;
and the darkness
comprehended it not.”

The Gospel of St. John 1:5
..

Such Love
is the Light
that enters the darkness of our Lives.

It is
the Light from which we came,
and will return.
When we surrender

to the Light of God’s Truth in our own lives,
we are enabled to truly see,
and then be a Beacon of Hope and Healing
in our dark world.

The Love
your share with others,
transcends mere appreciation.
.
We must have God’s Light

in our Hearts,
so that others
may see.

“God is light,
and in Him
is no darkness at all.”
1st John 1:5

Austria, Landscape, Sky, Clouds

The dire circumstances we all face
enable us to have
opportunity

to help others
in this World.

Let us find the words,
the smiles and the music
of our Lives
to use like brushes
to paint pictures
of Hope,
and Love.
We are each,
in our own way,
gifted,
with the ability

to Bless another precious
and Sacred Life.

We often fail to see
the connection of things in themselves,
how they stand in community
with others.

To your thoughts
I’ll soon be list’ning,
In the road I’ll stop and turn.
Then the wind will set me racing
As my journey nears its end,
and the path I’ll be retracing
When I’m homeward bound again.”

Marta Keen Thompson

Kaçkars, Landscape, Nature, Mountains

People may search for many years
to find
Inner Peace.

It is something you find
inside yourself.
And when you find it,
that is when Life
begins.

Once we have opened our Hearts
to the possibility
that there really could be
a Life worth Living
by sharing our Love
with others,
what can we do but weep
for Joy?

My,
how the Heart understands,
when the mind
will never comprehend.

“Nothing
can be loved or hated
unless it is first understood.”

Leonardo da Vinci.

Landscape, Beautiful, Nature, Forest

Every single day 
we can be astonished
by the Joy
we may discover,
in sharing our Love
for one another. 

 Our Hearts
can travel
through space and time
to experience the most beautiful form
of True Love –
an Eternal Journey
enriched with endless, meaningful
Blessings.
.
The Life Force of God’s Love
is so powerful and enchanting,
that it casts a spell
over us,
and greets us when we
awaken
from this Life.
Sunset, Woman, Joy, Beach, Poor

When you Pray,
the Veil is parted
between you
and our Heavenly Father,
and you realize how much
you are Loved.

The most Beautiful sound ever
is the Human voice
lifted in
Praise of our Creator.

No words
may describe the Beauty
and the Depth
of God’s Love
for us.

Have a wonderful evening,
and Life.

Goodnight.

Northern Lights“Your Love
can’t be denied.
The Truth will set you free.
You’ll have what’s meant to be,
All in time you’ll see.”

8 Safety and First Aid Tips for Kids

1

Calling 911

As soon as kids can recognize the numbers, they can learn to call 911. It’s important to teach them that 911 is not a toy. Otherwise, you could find yourself talking to a police officer about why Junior was screaming, “My house is on fire!” at the dispatcher. And if the kids are carrying cell phones, they need to know how calling with the cell phone is different than the home phone.

Bleeding Control

Pressure on a bleeding wound is usually enough to stop the flow of blood. Kids can be taught very early to put direct pressure on a cut. You don’t want Jimmy to wrap his shoestrings around his baby sis’s neck, so tell him not to do tourniquets.

3

Stop, Drop, and Roll

If the kids catch their clothes on fire, they need to put them out immediately. Teach them how to stop, drop, and roll. If outdoors, this is something that works better on grass than it does on concrete. If indoors, it’s better to do this on a hard surface than a carpet, where the risk of setting the home on fire is higher. Have the kids practice, so they’ll do this automatically if they need to.

4

Fire Game Plan

When the smoke alarms start beeping at 3 in the morning, you really must have a plan. It’s not enough that the kids wake up—they have to know where to go. If they have fire escape ladders in their rooms, do they know how to deploy the ladders? Do you plan to meet at the street corner? What if the kids get out at the back of the house and you get out at the front? All of these issues need to be decided in advance.

5

When to Teach Them CPR

Can kids do CPR? The answer to that is different for every child. There’s no question that kids can learn CPR, and there’s no question that in true cardiac arrest, doing nothing is certain death. If you are going to teach the kids CPR, it’s extremely important to stress not practicing on each other. Only practice on mannequins, as pushing on real chests can lead to serious injuries.

6

Water Safety

Keep the life jackets on and make sure the kids don’t swim alone. Teach kids to watch out for rip currents; if stuck in one, they should swim parallel to the shore to get out. Have a pool? If so, there needs to be a fence around it or a safety cover on it.

7

Avoid Dog Bites

Fido might know not to bite Junior, but does he know not to bite Sally the neighbor kid? Does Sally’s dog know not to bite your kid? Worse yet, does Junior or Sally know what to do when the dog is a stray wandering through the park? Dogs bite kids – a lot. Dogs bite kids in the summertime even more, probably because the kids are out of school and the dogs are hot and cranky. Teach Junior what to do when dogs approach.

8

Avoid Poisoning

Keep the kids out of the cabinets and keep the household cleaners in. Cabinets with poisonous substances should be up high and latched or locked. When Junior learns to clean the bathroom, stress how important it is not to mix bleach and ammonia. Post the number for Poison Control next to the phone.
