Let’s Love Life / CANCER CAUSING EFFECTS OF MICROWAVE COOKING / Friday: Texas Civil War Museum

Let’s Love Life.

And live a Life
that places the affective domain,
our feelings, emotions, attitudes,
motivations, and appreciation,
far above the cognitive.

Stop
thinking with your Brain!
And let your
Heart
guide your Life.

“The choice you face constantly
is whether you are taking your hurts
to your head or to your Heart.
In your head you can analyze them,
find their causes and consequences,
and coin words to speak and write about them.
But no final healing is likely to come from that source.
You need to let your wounds go down into your Heart.
Then you can live them through and discover
that they will not destroy you.
Your Heart
is greater than your wounds.”

– Henri Nouwen,
“The Inner Voice of Love”

That we think is the problem
so much of the time.

Many studies have shown
that while trying to control the world with our mind
we cause even more anxiety.

We need to trust more
in the healing power of our
Hearts.

My Dear Friends,
Life
is simply too short
not to be happy.
In fact,
being happy
is the only goal
one should have
in this brief existence.
Everything else,
our problems, worries and fears,
dissolve or resolve
when this goal is
accomplished.

“Judge not,
that you be not judged.”
– Matthew 7: 1-2

With judgment
you pronounce you will be judged,
and with the measure you use
it will be measured to you.

Let’s try
to eliminate the obstacles
that lead us to
Joy.
These include highly linear thinking,
excessive expectations,
judging everything and everyone,
and focusing on the negative.
These simplistic things
have resulted in horrendous
outcomes:

Suicides and drug overdoses pushed up
deaths in the United States last year
and caused a continuing decline
in how long Americans
are expected to live.

“These sobering statistics are a wake-up call
that we are losing too many Americans,
too early and too often,
to conditions that are
PREVENTABLE
,
according to Dr. Robert Redfield of the CDC.

The suicide death rate last year was
the highest it’s been in at least 50 years.
There were more than 47,000 suicides
in this country,
up from under 45,000 the year before.

 These latest numbers
were just released
on November 29.

Our Country is in the longest period
of a declining life expectancy since the late 1910’s,
when World War I and the worst flu pandemic
in modern history combined
to kill nearly 1 million Americans.

“We’ve never really seen anything like this,”
according to Robert Anderson of the CDC.

Perfectionism
kills more people on this planet
than you would ever
imagine –
over a million EVERY year.
Many of these precious people
were very young.

Human Beings
are fragile.
Especially
our Children.

They should be treated
as such.
They are far too precious
to be treated in the harsh, linear
and overly strict manner
our schools have
devolve into.

   They are far too precious.

NOTHING
that can be learned
is worth the price
of losing your Child’s
precious personality,
innate motivation,
and Love of Life.

Folks,
this is YOUR country.
This is YOUR Life.
And this is YOUR
Child.

The most important factor
for the happiness of your children
will be
YOUR attitude toward
Life.

The Life of a Child
will reflect
everything
in your Life.

If
you project
a relaxed, jovial, amiable
humorous
and fun LOVING
way of living,
your child will be
excited
about Life and Love,
and about
being with YOU!

We SIMPLY must stop creating
learning and home environments
that have such high expectations,
that Life becomes
miserable
and no longer
what we look forward to.

As the most intelligent Man
of his generation,
Ben Franklin,
famously said,
Moderation in ALL things,
including moderation.”

Hey,
he lived to be
an old man.

By the way,
he invented many things.
One of these
he is never really recognized for:
it is called
the
United States of America.

The greatest Gift
is the knowledge
that we are
NOT
perfect.

Thank God!

I advise students
to make at least ONE
mistake –
on purpose,
every day.
That way,
they can take credit
for it,
and have some FUN.

Relax.

Enjoy your little one’s
brief childhood.
It will be over
before
you wake up.

Do
whatever makes your child
Happy.
Then,
and ONLY then,
slip the learning in
under the rug.
And make sure
it is always followed
with a BIG hug.

Don’t be
in the presence
of your children
without a smile.

Laugh
at your precious child’s mistakes.
And then,
talk about your own.
(tell the truth)
You are both
Human.

Life,
is a Treasure Trove
of Joy.
Or
it is nothing
at all.

And have another
Happy Thanksgiving.
Have one every day
for the rest of your
Life.
We have much
to give thanks
for.

Goodnight.

CANCER CAUSING EFFECTS OF
MICROWAVE COOKING

Creation of a “binding effect” to radioactivity in the atmosphere, causes a marked increase in the amount of alpha and beta particle saturation in foods;

Creation of cancer causing agents within protein hydrolysate compounds* in milk and cereal grains [*these are natural proteins that are split into unnatural fragments by the addition of water];

Alteration of elemental food-substances, causing disorders in the digestive system by unstable catabolism* of foods subjected to microwaves [*the metabolic breakdown process];

Due to chemical alterations within food substances, malfunctions were observed within the lymphatic systems [absorbent vessels], causing a degeneration of the immune potentials of the body to protect against certain forms of neoplastics [abnormal growths of tissue];

Ingestion of microwaved foods caused a higher percentage of cancerous cells within the blood serum [cytomas – cell tumors such as sarcoma];

Microwave emissions caused alteration in the catabolic [metabolic breakdown] behavior of glucoside [hydrolyzed dextrose] and galactoside [oxidized alcohol] elements within frozen fruits when thawed in this manner;

Microwave emission caused alteration of the catabolic [metabolic breakdown] behavior of plant alkaloids [organic nitrogen based elements] when raw, cooked, or frozen vegetables were exposed for even extremely short durations;

Cancer causing free radicals [highly reactive incomplete molecules] were formed within certain trace mineral molecular formations in plant substances, and in particular, raw root-vegetables; and,

In a statistically high percentage of persons, microwaved foods caused stomach and intestinal cancerous growths, as well as a general degeneration of peripheral cellular tissues, with a gradual breakdown of the function of the digestive and excretive systems.

Microwave exposure caused significant decreases in the nutritive value of all foods researched. The following are the most important findings:

1. A decrease in the bioavailability [capability of the body to utilize the nutriment] of B-complex vitamins, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, essential minerals and lipotropics in all foods;

2. A loss of 60-90% of the vital energy field content of all tested foods;

3. A reduction in the metabolic behavior and integration process capability of alkaloids [organic nitrogen based elements], glucosides and galactosides, and nitrilosides;

4. A destruction of the nutritive value of nucleoproteins in meats;

5. A marked acceleration of structural disintegration in all foods.

BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF EXPOSURE

Exposure to microwave emissions also had an unpredictably negative effect upon the general biological welfare of humans. This was not discovered until the Russians experimented with highly sophisticated equipment and discovered that a human did not even need to ingest the material substance of the microwaved food substances: that even exposure to the energy-field itself was sufficient to cause such adverse side effects that the use of any such microwave apparatus was forbidden in 1976 by Soviet state law.

The following are the enumerated effects:

1. A breakdown of the human “life-energy field” in those who were exposed to microwave ovens while in operation, with side-effects to the human energy field of increasingly longer duration;

2. A degeneration of the cellular voltage parallels during the process of using the apparatus, especially in the blood and lymphatic areas;

3. A degeneration and destabilization of the external energy activated potentials of food utilization within the processes of human metabolism;

4. A degeneration and destabilization of internal cellular membrane potentials while transferring catabolic [metabolic breakdown] processes into the blood serum from the digestive process;

5. Degeneration and circuit breakdowns of electrical nerve impulses within the junction potentials of the cerebrum [the front portion of the brain where thought and higher functions reside];

6. A degeneration and breakdown of nerve electrical circuits and loss of energy field symmetry in the neuroplexuses [nerve centers] both in the front and the rear of the central and autonomic nervous systems;

7. Loss of balance and circuiting of the bioelectric strengths within the ascending reticular activating system [the system which controls the function of consciousness];

8. A long term cumulative loss of vital energies within humans, animals and plants that were located within a 500-meter radius of the operational equipment;

9. Long lasting residual effects of magnetic “deposits” were located throughout the nervous system and lymphatic system;

10. A destabilization and interruption in the production of hormones and maintenance of hormonal balance in males and females;

11. Markedly higher levels of brainwave disturbance in the alpha, theta, and delta wave signal patterns of persons exposed to microwave emission fields, and;

12. Because of this brainwave disturbance, negative psychological effects were noted, including loss of memory, loss of ability to concentrate, suppressed emotional threshold, deceleration of intellective processes, and interruptive sleep episodes in a statistically higher percentage of individuals subjected to continual range emissive field effects of microwave apparatus, either in cooking apparatus or in transmission stations.

Forensic Research Conclusions

From the above enumerated indications, the use of microwave apparatus is definitely not advisable; and, with the decision of the Soviet government in 1976, present scientific opinion in many countries concerning the use of such apparatus is clearly in evidence.

Due to the problem of random magnetic residulation and binding within the biological systems of the body, which can ultimately effect the neurological systems, primarily the brain and neuroplexuses (nerve centers), long term depolarization of tissue neuroelectric circuits can result. Because these effects can cause virtually irreversible damage to the neuroelectrical integrity of the various components of the nervous system (I. R. Luria, Novosibirsk 1975a), ingestion of microwaved foods is clearly contraindicated in all respects. Their magnetic residual effect can render the pyschoneural receptor components of the brain more subject to influence psychologically by artificially induced microwave radio frequency fields from transmission stations and TV relay-networks.

The theoretical possibility of psycho telemetric influence (the capability of affecting human behavior by transmitted radio signals at controlled frequencies) has been suggested by Soviet neuropsychological investigations at Uralyera and Novosibirsk (Luria and Perov, 1974a, 1975c, 1976a), which can cause involuntary subliminal psychological energy field compliance to operative microwave apparatus.

Reasons to Throw out your Microwave Oven

From the conclusions of the Swiss, Russian and German scientific clinical studies, we can no longer ignore the microwave oven sitting in our kitchens. Based on this research, we will conclude this article with the following:

1). Continually eating food processed from a microwave oven causes long term – permanent – brain damage by “shorting out” electrical impulses in the brain [de-polarizing or de-magnetizing the brain tissue].

2). The human body cannot metabolize [break down] the unknown by-products created in microwaved food.

3). Male and female hormone production is shut down and/or altered by continually eating microwaved foods.

4). The effects of microwaved food by-products are residual [long term, permanent] within the human body.

5). Minerals, vitamins, and nutrients of all microwaved food is reduced or altered so that the human body gets little or no benefit, or the human body absorbs altered compounds that cannot be broken down.

6). The minerals in vegetables are altered into cancerous free radicals when cooked in microwave ovens.

7). Microwaved foods cause stomach and intestinal cancerous growths [tumors]. This may explain the rapidly increased rate of colon cancer in America.

8). The prolonged eating of microwaved foods causes cancerous cells to increase in human blood.

9). Continual ingestion of microwaved food causes immune system deficiencies through lymph gland and blood serum alterations.

10). Eating microwaved food causes loss of memory, concentration, emotional instability, and a decrease of intelligence.

The use of artificial microwave transmissions for subliminal psychological control, a.k.a. “brainwashing”, has also been proven. We’re attempting to obtain copies of the 1970’s Russian research documents and results written by Drs. Luria and Perov specifying their clinical experiments in this area.

The Hidden Hazards of Microwave Cooking

Recent research shows that microwave oven-cooked food suffers severe molecular damage. When eaten, it causes abnormal changes in human blood and immune systems.
Not surprisingly, the public has been denied details on these significant health dangers.

MICROWAVE Radiation Leakage

What is it?

Microwave radiation is odorless and invisible and therefore hard to detect.

Microwave oven radiation is present whenever a microwave oven is turned on.

The microwave energy causes the water molecules in the food to vibrate rapidly. This rapid vibration produces heat which, in turn, cooks the food. It can also penetrate through living tissue which is why exposure is harmful to our health. Once you turn off the oven, the microwaves disappear but until then, you may be exposing yourself to dangerous levels of radiation leakage.

Do Microwaves Leak?

A survey conducted among the Professional Service Associates, a group of microwave repair servicemen, indicated that over 56% of microwave ovens two years or older leaked levels of radiation 10% higher than the safety standards set by the FDA. More often than not, a simple adjustment was all that was needed to stop the leakage.

What Causes Microwave Ovens To Leak?

Slamming the oven door, dirt or food particles caught in the door seals and hinges.

Somewhere in Time We Stand Still / Drinking Water Purity / Friday: Half Price Books and Movie – Hidden Figures

lake-and-sky

    Remembering all the Beauty

A River
of Precious Memories
flows through our Hearts.
And we are kept adrift
by a gentle breeze
of Love,
that fills the Sails
of Time.

But somewhere
time will
stand still,
while waters
of the River of Life
continue to fill our days
and ebb and flow
reaching high tide
to renew our ways.

“He who believes in Me,
 ‘From his innermost Being
 will flow rivers
of living water.'”
John 7:38

Such beautiful memories,
lovely and peaceful
like the flowing melody
of Sacred trickling water,
express what words
cannot say,
as they lift our Spirits
toward the Heaven
of a new Day.

over_sunset-b

  The Heaven of a new Day.

“Blessed are those
who can give
without remembering

and take
without forgetting.”
– Elizabeth Bibesco

My Dear Friends,
in beholding
the Magnificence and Grandeur
of our Sacred Reflections,
our cherished moments
frozen in fragments of time,
we are awe-inspired
by what is left,
what, in our mind, survives,
in remembering all the Beauty
that has surrounded
our lives.

river-and-sky-b

Lovely and peaceful, like a flowing melody.

How humble and thankful
we should be,
that we are so
deeply Loved,
we were never blinded
by what we
could not see.

The Light
of awareness
is the dawn
of rebirth.

Rebirth and Renewal
encompass us all the time.
It is in every aspect of our Being
and in everything that surrounds us.

In the Natural World,
it is the Natural Order
of things.
It reminds us
of our strength, our resilience,
our rebirth,
so that we can survive
the storms of our Life
and
Blossom once again.

“Those who have seen
the darkest of nights

truly appreciate
the full Glory of Dawn.”

Lydia Dawn

There comes a time
when reflective thought
leads us to know,
that the deep regrets of the past
become totally irrelevant
to Tomorrow –
when you allow
the Holy Spirit
to replace regret
with Reverence.

“Love will abide,
take things in stride.

Sounds like good advice
but there’s no one at my side.

And time washes clean
love’s wounds unseen.

That’s what someone told me,
but I don’t know what it means.”
– Gary B. White

         The Dawn of Life itself.

Tomorrow
is not just the first day
of the rest of your Life,
it is the Dawn
of Life itself,
the Moment of Rebirth
and the death
of darkness.

My Friends,
we can never be found
in the darkness
we endure,
only in the Light
we search for.

“Ring the bells that still can ring. cohen-b
Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack,
a crack in everything.
That’s how the light gets in.
– Leonard Cohen

Taker and giver,
accuser and transgressor,
now and not never,
or forever and ever,
the frailties of our Humanity,
can set us
adrift upon a violent sea
of a Life devoid of Love,
deprived
of even
the will to be.

But in the sweet
by-and-by,
Love profuse enough
to fill the Heart’s Treasury,
can find us
adrift upon a lake
of Beautiful Memory.

Old plow horse

    In the Light we search for.

For,
by the very Breath of God,
a gentle breeze fills the Sails
of our yearning,
as we cross over
the great divides of Life,
with the Compass
of His Compassion.

As we traverse
the Earth,
we fly in the sky
at times, it seems,
with unearthly Visions
and Dreams.

sky-pink-and-blue-b

We fly in the sky of unearthly visions and dreams.

Our Earth
is a source of Life,
not a resource.
More than the firmament
beneath our feet,
it is the ground
of our Being,
a Gift from God,
to treasure
and to keep.

And Prayer
is the Pathway
of our own
Spiritual Journey,
leading to inner Peace
and timelessness.
.
The greatest Gift
is
Life itself.

And to be possessed
of Love,
is
to be possessed of Life,
and hear the lovely,
peaceful flowing melody
of everything
God wills for
YOU.

You can feel the Power of Love
in the Hope
that God will hear you
when you turn to Him.

flower-purple-two

The music of your Life
is the Sunshine of your Soul
and expresses what words cannot.
It can lift the essence
of your Being
towards Heaven.

 Great is our Father.
Wonderful are His Creations.

When you look at Life and living
through the lens of Love,
you see astonishing and miraculous things
that reflect the Will of God in you,
in your Heart.
earth-balanced-b

ALL the conditions for everything are just perfect.

We all travel through this Earthly Life
as pilgrims.
 May we have compassion
on all those who travel
with us.
.
Contemplate the deeper reality
that is all the Beauty
that surrounds you.

The fact that all the conditions
for everything are just perfect
for life to exist on our planet,
is nothing short of astounding.
It is
a Beautiful Miracle
of Creation.

And so are
YOU.

Goodnight.

Is the water that you drink and bathe in healthy? If you are on a community water system the US government requires them to publish a CCR (Consumer Confidence Report) or Annual Water Report and make it available to the public. If you get water from a private or shared well, you will need to test your own water.  There are a broad range of solutions for filtering contaminants out of your water so that you and your family can receive the healthiest water possible. The first step is finding out what is in it.

Following is a list of common concerns and filtration strategies for each. Disease due to waterborne contaminants can be transmitted on foods that have been washed in tap water, by breathing in the spray such as in a shower or near a decorative fountain, or by direct consumption. Common contaminants found in the water supplied to indoor environments include but are not limited to: Microbial, Inorganic (includes lead, asbestos), Organic (other than microbial), and Pesticides and Herbicides.

Microbial contaminants include living organisms, such as bacteria, parasites, and algae, as well as viruses (viruses are not considered to be alive because they cannot reproduce without a host cell –your own cells, for example). While waterborne disease are most prevalent in developing countries, the United States and Canada are seeing an increase in the occurrence of waterborne disease associated with viruses and parasites, one prominent example being Legionella bacterium, which can cause a serious pneumonia-like infection. The only home filter systems capable of filtering down to the viral size range are the reverse osmosis or ultra filtration-type membranes, or ceramic filters. It should be noted that activated carbon filters can become a breeding ground for bacteria and hence should never be used on a source of water that is not bacteria free.

Inorganic contaminants are elements not bound to carbon and hydrogen. The term inorganic includes metals (and their alloys, like iron, copper, aluminum, brass, bronze), minerals (such as salt, asbestos, silicates, arsenic, fluoride) and mineral-based chemicals and non-metallic elements, like silicon, phosphorus, arsenic, lead, fluoride, and chlorine. Some metals are necessary trace nutrients for our metabolic biochemistry, but can become toxic in too high a dose, such as Chromium, Copper, and Selenium.  Other metals are toxic only, such as Lead, Arsenic, Beryllium, Cadmium, Thallium, and Mercury, with no known safe level in the body. The best means known to remove inorganic contaminants from water is reverse osmosis.

Organic contaminants are those which have a bond between a carbon atom and a hydrogen atom (CH), and include microorganisms and manmade organic compounds. Many of them are naturally occurring organic chemicals, and innocuous. The organic chemicals we consider water contaminants are man-made, synthetic chemicals such as solvents, petroleum-based chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, and PCBs.  Since the 1930’s, production of synthetic organic chemicals has increased almost exponentially, and only a relative handful of them are directly regulated via the Safe Drinking Water Act.

Organic chemicals have been dumped into our surface waters by industrial plants since manufacturing began. This dumping, coupled with the constant runoff of agricultural chemicals into surface waterways, has led to our present situation where almost all fresh water shows some signs of organic pollution. The sole answer for removal of most synthetic organic chemicals is activated charcoal. Probably the best overall scheme for protection is to have a large capacity activated charcoal filter at the point of water entry into the house, with an additional stage of reverse osmosis for drinking and cooking water.

Pesticides and Herbicides are a subset of synthetic organic chemicals that deserve special attention as water contaminants.  Mostly petroleum based, these chemicals started finding widespread use in the 1940’s, and the first warning signs were not evident until the early 1960’s when scientists began to realize that many of these chemicals are very long-lived in the environment, and cause harm to wildlife well beyond their intended targets.  Since these compounds can actually become concentrated in the fat cells of animals from their food sources, they ultimately end up in us too.  For example, even though DDT has been banned for decades, it can still be found in the breast milk of new mothers. These chemicals get into our water from agricultural runoff, spraying on private residential lawns and golf courses, aerial spraying for bug control, and countless other means. The most effective means of removal for pesticides, herbicides, and other synthetic organic chemicals is reverse osmosis. Activated charcoal filters can also be very effective at removing pesticides, but they have limited capacity and need to be maintained diligently.

The World Health Organization states that 80% of infectious diseases worldwide are waterborne. If your tap water has not been filtered by the processes cited here above, you are likely drinking, cooking, washing your food, and bathing with contaminated water. It is worth noting that viruses and single-celled parasites are resistant to extermination by chlorine, itself a contaminant, which is usually the first line of defense in most parts of the United States against microbiological contaminants.

            Let your Spirit take you.

The greatest Blessings of mankind
are within us.
They are within our reach.

Far, far beneath
the Splendor and the Majesty
of this moment,
we hide our Hearts
in a shadowy existence.
But
there is no darkness
when we choose
to banish the night.

My Dear Friends,
there is a Light,
bright shining like a Star,
that belongs to you.
You cannot see it
by gloom of night.
But wait.
With your fervent Prayer
it will unfurl its Splendor
and burst into sight.
And there
will be your delight.

Yes,
there is a morning
in every moment
that brings a Love story
to Life.

Your mind
can never begin the journey
to be free,
until you leave
the vexing years
that knew you.

Let your Spirit take you
where your fears
cannot bind you,
to where your dreams begin:
to where your Heart sings
and you savor the flavor
of every single moment
Love and Life can bring.

There is a harmony
only you can write.
It will take you
to where you long to be,
to where the mind
fragrantly forgets,
to where the Heart
takes flight.

And
if you look down
upon your own Creation,
the only explanation
you will have found
is the Love that abounds
all around.

And if you look
even deeper,
within your very Human Heart,
you will find YOU
hiding deep inside.

harbors Infinity,
a knowing
God will send Thee
visions of His Light,
to pierce that darkest dark
of every night.

there is no
night,
no unfeeling cold,
no darkness to stir and wake
the imagination to fright,
to silently abandon your defenses
and heighten sensations
that steal from you
every day and night.

You can Live

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
 awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause
everything is never
as it seems
.”

      This moment harbors Infinity.

Social media
is great for sharing personal experiences,
but it has a strong negative influence
on our lives,
as it prevents us
from actually experiencing life!

The lack of face to face communication
puts a toll on our lives,
making it harder for us
to really communicate
with other people.

When you gather with friends
there are good times,
which are not going to come back.

Encourage
your children to leave
the phone at home.
Give them a chance
to truly live
Life.

“Success consists of goingwinston
from failure to failure
without loosing
enthusiasm.”

Winston Churchill

Arlington Police Officer

buys struggling mom new car seats

From Fox4 News.com comes another beautiful story of Love and Compassion. An Arlington mother got more than she expected after she was pulled over. Instead of writing the woman a ticket for broken car seats, the officer bought new ones.

Alexis Jones says she knew her car seats were in really bad shape and was waiting until black Friday to go out and get new ones. But the Arlington police officer got to her first.

Jones was with her 3-year-old daughter and her 9-month-old son, and Arlington Police Officer Brandon Gilbert was ready to write her a ticket.

“The car seat was broken. It was a very old car seat,” the officer said. “And there really wasn’t any way of restraining the child that was inside the car seat because it was broken.”

Jones already was trying to manage a new job and a new apartment. The dash cam shows the officer putting the car seat on the hood of the patrol car and helping her with it.

“I thought about taking enforcement action,” Gilbert admitted. “But then I thought that’s not gonna help her.”

But it wasn’t until he got home that Officer Gilbert decided he needed to respond – not as an officer, but as a fellow parent.

Officer Gilbert brought two big boxes of car seats and stuffed animals,” Jones said. “And I was just in total shock. It was just it was amazing, actually.”

Gilbert used his own money to buy two car seats. He brought them over to her house and showed her how to install them.

“Lord willing I don’t, but if I was to get in a car accident, they would be safe,” Jones said. “I just feel so much better every time I drive my car.”

It was an act of Love and Kindness that Jones says made all the difference in the world.

If you can further assist Alexis Jones please contact Officer Gilbert at the Arlington Police Department. And may God Bless You.

Thank you officer Brandon Gilbert.
We Love you too.

“If I could be a little girl again
This is how I wish it would have been.
I’d watch slowly the flowers grow,
I’d watch slowly the rivers flow,
If I could be a little girl again.

If I could be a little girl again
This is how I wish it would have been.
I’d watch the sunrise every day,
and see the sunset come what may.
If I could be a little girl again.

If I could be a little girl again
This is how I wish it would have been.
I’d kiss the birds, and love the bees
And make sure that I climbed every tree.
If I could be a little girl again.

If I could be a little girl again
I’d never miss a beat of life
Until the Lord says your mine tonight,
Then with eyes glowing alive and bright
I’d be that little girl again.”
– Gail C. Berreitter

“Nothing comes from violence
and nothing ever could.
For all those born
beneath an angry star

Lest we forget
how fragile we are.

On and on the rain will fall
Like tears from a star,
like tears from a star

On and on the rain will say
How fragile we are,
how fragile we are.”

“Learn from those who can teach you.
The experiences of those who preceded us
in our ‘dead poets’,
help you walk through life.
Today’s society is us ‘poets alive’.
Do not let life pass you live without that.”

Out of a Very Dark Night – A Miracle of Life / Aspirin and Cancer Prevention /

Photo Long Before We Met

         Out of a very dark night.

The Holy Bible is filled
with stories of God’s Miracles.
But miracles, my Friends,
fill our everyday lives as
the Hand of God
hovers over your Heart.
He waits for you,
to let the Love
in your precious Heart
flow through you and from Him
and out into the World,
into the very beautiful Hearts
that abound all around.
Into those in need
of Forgiveness,
in need of someone
to care,
in need of the Miracle
of your warm smile,
your kind word,
in need of Love.

Miracles abound
all around.
You are a miracle,
a Blessed and very precious
and very Human being.

The fact that you are alive
is a Miracle!

And the Miracle of your Life
is far beyond amazing.
This wonderful Gift of Life
is what God has truly Blessed us with.

From our Friends at

Could life have evolved randomly?
No!
Not according to
Mathematicians
and other scientists.

Prominent scientists have attempted
to calculate the odds
that a single-celled organism
could result by the chance combining
of pre-existent building blocks.

Harold Morowitz calculated the odds
as one chance in 10100,000,000,000.

The odds are staggering.

“We are led cent by dollar
from a lowly pile of common materials
to a grand Philosophical conclusion,
the infinite preciousness of every person.”
– Harold Joseph Morowitz

The odds led Fred Hoyle to state
that the probability of spontaneous generation
is about the same as the probability
that a tornado sweeping through a junk yard
could assemble a Boeing 747
from the contents.

Mathematicians tell us that any event
with an improbability greater than
one chance in 1050
is in the realm of metaphysics
a Miracle.

“If you go back 10 generations (250 years)
the chance of you being born at all
is at most 1 divided by 6 x 10100 or
1 in 60000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000 000000000000000000000000000000000000.
In gambling,
even a chance of 1 to 100 is not worth a gamble.
Are you ever lucky to be alive!”  read more

Morowitz

Physicist Harold Marowitz,
Professor of molecular Biophysics
and Biochemistry at Yale University,
used Physics calculations in concluding,
that it is more likely
you would win the state lottery
every week for a million years
by purchasing just one ticket each week,
than reassembling a single bacterium
by chance.

robert_shapiroRobert Shapiro,
N. Y. University Professor of Chemistry   and DNA expert,
calculated the probability
of the 2,000 types of proteins
in a simple bacterium
coming into existence by chance
is the astronomical figure equivalent to
1 followed by 40,000 zeroes.

“The improbability involved in
generating even one bacterium
is so large that it
reduces all considerations of time and space

to nothingness.”
– Robert Shapiro

Hoyle

       Hoyle

Sir Fred Hoyle
was Plumian Professor in Mathematics at Cambridge University
and Director of the Institute
of Theoretical Astronomy.
He compared the probability of life
arising by chance
to lining up blind people,
giving each one a scrambled Rubik’s Cube and finding that they all solve the cube
at the same moment.

Crick

      Crick

Francis Crick,
molecular biologist, biophysicist, and neuroscientist,
and winner of the Nobel Prize in Biology
for his work with the DNA molecule, stated:
“An honest man,
armed with all the knowledge available
to us now,
could only state that,
in some sense,

the origin of life appears at the moment
to be almost a miracle,

so many are the conditions
which would have had to have been satisfied
to get it going.”

My Dear Friends,
God dwells in your Heart.
And by His Strength and Grace alone,
you are able
to overcome adversity.

How well I remember
finding my precious Mother,
Marie,
lying in her bed,
literally in a pool
of her own blood.
She was rushed
to Baylor Medical Center.

I am in tears
as I share this with you.
They are tears
of Joy
and Thanksgiving.

The Surgeon visited with me
shortly before proceeding with
exploratory surgery.
And he shared with me
a sad truth.
I asked a simple question
and he gave me
the simple truth:
“Is there any Hope?”
No,
he whispered.
“What is the chance
that she can survive?”
None.
And then I searched his eyes
for any sign of Hope
and asked,
“What are her chances?”
He replied with great compassion
in his voice:
There is a one hundred percent
probability
that she will not survive
this night.
We will do what we can.
But, No.
Dr. Anderson, there is
no Hope.
Her condition is such
that she cannot survive
whatever is causing
this very massive loss of blood.
She is dying from cancer.
I’m sorry.”

I do not know how,
but I made my way
to the little Chapel
in the Hospital.

And there I cried
and cried and cried.
I begged God
not to take the Life
of this precious Mother.
I Prayed.
And through the tears
I could barely see.
But through the years,
I could clearly see.
What a Blessing
Life can be
when someone Loves you
as much
as she Loved me.

                               In awesome wonder

I shared the Love
I had felt though the years
with my Lord.
I expressed my deep gratitude,
over and over again,
for her very precious Life.
I shared the need
to have her with me
a little longer.
I told my God,
“I still need her in my Life.
Please, let me have her
a little longer.”

I was in
so much pain.

And then
my Communion
with the Lord
suddenly ended.
A strange feeling,
a quiet Peace,
came to my Heart.
I never felt anything
like it before.

I looked around
and the good Doctor
was quietly standing behind me.
The look on his face
astonished me.
It shocked me.
I could not understand it.
It was a look
I never expected.
Why was he looking
through me
with such an amazement
in his tired eyes?
He was speechless
for a very long time.
He just looked
into my eyes
and looked through me.

After what seemed like
an Eternity,
he spoke
in a hushed and whispered
voice:
“I could not find anything wrong.
I think she will be all right now.”
I could barely speak.
I thanked him
and he very, very slowly
walked away
into a darkening hallway,
and I walked out of
a very dark night.

My Mother lived
for another twelve
and one half years.

Yes,
my tears
are of Joy
and Thanksgiving.

My Precious Lord,
how Great Thou Art.

Goodnight.

“O Lord my God,
when I in awesome wonder

consider all the Worlds
thy Hands have made,

I see the stars,
I hear the rolling thunder,

Thy power
throughout the Universe displayed.

Then sings my Soul,
my Savior God, to thee:

How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!”
– Carl G. Boberg

“I think the real miracle is . . .
to walk on earth.
Every day we are engaged in a miracle
which we don’t even recognize.
A blue sky, white clouds, green leaves,
the black curious eyes of a Child,
our own two eyes.
All is a miracle.”
– Thich Nhat Hanh

The Aspirin – Cancer Link

Taking a low-dose aspirin daily is a common prescription for those at high risk for heart attack and stroke. Research within the last few years is pointing to another possible benefit of aspirin.

When taken regularly, it may also help reduce your risk for certain cancers, particularly colon and gastrointestinal cancers. The benefits, however, may still not outweigh the risks. Check with your Doctor.

In 2012, world-renowned aspirin expert Professor Peter Rothwell of Oxford University and colleagues published three studies in The Lancet journal that suggested that if you are middle-aged, taking a low-dose aspirin every day could slash your risk for various cancers in as few as 2 to 3 years! According to Rothwell, taking an aspirin a day may also help to prevent an existing localized cancer from metastasizing (spreading to other parts of the body), a finding that holds promise for current cancer patients who may likewise receive some benefit from supplementing with aspirin.

A study published this year in JAMA Oncology showed that taking a low-dose aspirin every day may lower your risk for colon cancer by 19%, your risk for gastrointestinal cancer by 15% and your overall cancer risk by 3%. The benefits appeared after 6 years of supplementation.

Senior researcher Dr. Andrew Chan, from Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston explained: “That makes sense, because cancers don’t typically develop overnight. They take years to develop, so you would have to take aspirin for a long time to prevent cancer.”

According to Chan, aspirin impacts particular biological pathways that can cause cancer. Aspirin also helps to lower inflammation and possibly limit the number of cancer-causing proteins in the body.

The study analyzed data from the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study, which followed 130,000 men and women over 30 years. While no link between aspirin and a lower risk for breast, prostate, or lung cancers was found, data did seem to suggest that when aspirin was taken 2 or more times a week it might prevent 17% of colon cancer diagnoses for those not screened with a colonoscopy, and 5-8% of colon cancer cases for those who are.

What lives within
can fill the endless yearning
of another Soul,
a Heart to mend,
to heal and console.

The Vocabulary of Pure Joy

Words can liberate you. They can begin the flow of what you feel into an upward, outward spiral that overwhelms the senses, sublimates your ego and shapes you into an authentic and human being.

Expressions from the heart set this moment free to be all that it can be. Putting what you love and why you love into words empowers you to transcend every obstacle previously placed in your path. You are, effectively, in an out of body experience. You become one with the destiny of your dreams. And you come to exist in more than one place at one time.

Words, spoken, transcribed or imagined into being, placed into music, poetry or whispered softly into the narrow space between you and one you love can become the elixir, the tonic, the magic ingredient, the missing formula for saving a relationship, uniting a nation or for the salvation of mankind.

Kept in touch with your deepest desires and in time with the beat of your heart, what you express can liberate you from the past, heal a wounded heart and turn the next page of your life.

So breathe deeply, calm your mind and reach deep down inside your heart to reflect upon the last tender moment of pure joy that you felt. Tell someone, anyone, what you found in that rare moment and how you felt. Now, know that you can feel that way again. Where you last found pure joy, there it always lay.

We are born into such a moment, in such love, and we never really lose it, we just lose the way. So put it into words, music, poetry and into an envelope and mail it to someone you love or just show up on their doorstep.

The heart beats with a rhythm unknown, until someone listens to it.

In Every Child

In every life there is a Spark of the Divine. One cannot measure or even imagine the magnitude and immensity of it’s potential to change the world.

That Spark, my friend, dwells within you and the life of your child. It can never be extinguished. And it can ignite the world and be the light of salvation for a new human being, a new beginning, yes, a new tomorrow – so different and so new that our imagination may never dwell within it.

The flame of your child’s heart can fire the mind and engulf all that humanity desires. It can touch others so deeply that they will truly cherish the memory of your being beyond that you exist, even unto the distant dreams held constant in the firmament of man’s deepest desires – to live a life fulfilled, to love life beyond the self and to lift a lamp of hope and compassion so that others may see.

Take this new day, another dawn, and cherish it as God loves us. In every child is the gift of life, the essence of love.

The Poetry of You

To love someone other than yourself
Is the highest form of loving yourself,

For you come to love all humanity
And humanity becomes you.

And the greatest part of you
Becomes a part of everyone you come to love.

We are here for a purpose.
And it lies outside of ourselves
And the Noble Ideals we share.

It lives and breathes within the lives of others,
Not so fortunate as ourselves.
It lives as well as it may.

A child must possess the knowledge
That there is love,
That love exists,
And that it may be found
In you.

For a Mother and for Father
Love truly blossoms evermore
When children find:

“Tis true
There is poetry all around,
Beauty flows from everything,
But by far
The most beautiful poem
Is you.”

 – Wm. C. Anderson
