In So Very Many Ways / The Right QUESTION Is the Answer / 2017-18 Calendar

“Poetry
is the Algebra
of the English Language.”
Stanley Cooper

Before I formed you
in the Womb
I knew you.”
Jeremiah 1:5

The Heart and Mind of God
has always known you.
You are Beautifully made,
and in the Very Image
of our Heavenly Father.

You are
a Marvelous Creation.

God’s Love
like a River flows.
Do not stand
on the Bank of this
Mighty River
and wonder why.
Get into the
Precious Water.
Do not deny
all the Love
that can wash over
YOU.

        YOU are a Miracle!

Yes,
our Father calls us.
He loudly calls
US.
And into
the solace of silence
we go,
to His Warm and Comforting
Embrace.
And there
we shall remain.

YOU
are a Miracle
in so very many
ways.
Your Voice
to the Child
you call your own,
is like unto
the Voice of God.
YOU
above all things known,
hold high the Lamp
of the Heart,
to light the narrow path,
to extinguish
the dark.

          Our Love is alive.

The Love
buried deep within
the Human Heart
God reveals.
Even
in the depths
of our sorrow,
lay tidings of Joy
untold,
tomorrow.

Yes,
by the Grace of our Father,
our Joy
overcomes our sorrow,
as we abandon all
doubt.

Our Love
is alive in our memory,
and in our Hope,
as vibrant
as it is
in Life.
Our Love
can never die.
It is the only thing
time
cannot deny.

      Abandon all doubt.

Our Infant beginnings
were Woven
from a Beautiful Tapestry
that from
powerful passions flow,
into the Fabric of Life
we know.

The Canvass
upon which our Lives
are painted,
is stretched by
our imagination,
and colored
by our desires,
with the brush strokes
of our Dreams.

     Colored by our desires

Yes,
Life is a
brief, precious and fragile
Story
to be told.
But the pain
and the suffering
and the sorrow
carved into our Being,
like the pain
of our Birth,
is a reflection
of all the Love
we feel,
a mere shadow
of the Light
God’s Love
one day
will Reveal.

 You are Beautifully made.

The Miracle
of our Life
was laid upon
an Altar of
Hope
for precious Dreams
to unfold,
in a Story
yet untold.

YOU
are the destiny
of Dreams,
the Salvation of
Hope.

From Infant
beginnings,
into Infinite
Blessings.

To the degree
that you are
aware,
you are
intelligent.
Be aware
of the Infinite Love
of God
for you.

              Abandon all doubt.

If
you want to see
a Miracle,
don’t look around
all day long,
for one
to be found.
You do not
need to look for
a Miracle
in Life,
for
your Life

is a
Miracle.

Yes,
YOU are a Miracle!
And more than that,
you cannot
be.

Goodnight.

“To be Joyful
is the basic nature of Life.
Joy is the spiritual dimension of happiness,
in which one begins to understand
one’s intrinsic value and place
in the Universe.”
– Osho

These questions have no right or wrong answers.
Sometimes asking the right question

A Very Precious Place To Be / Kindness and Generosity / Stock Show

Shakespeare preperation & around school 033One day
A pilot looked down

To the shores of a river bank
Where once,
When he was young,
He would play.

Remembering that,
As a child,
He would look up
Hoping one day to fly,
To be where he is today.

And now,
What would he give,
To return to the shores
Of his youth,
Back to the place
Where once he dreamed.

We are all looking up,
From a very precious place to be,
For any child,
For you,
And for me.
It is a sacred place,
This moment.

But far more treasured,
More than our
Deep longing to be,
In any
Time or place,
We long to be
With someone we Love,
To a place
In their heart,
Where once we lived.

Let us not wait
With such longing
In our lonely hearts

To look down,
From the Heavens Above
To Heaven Below.

Heaven is within you,
In this moment,
In this hour,
This day.
And tomorrow,
Tomorrow
May never be.

not even intelligence.”

5 Foods that Keep You Thin
By Kristin McGrath

Apples
According to Alan Aragon, a nutritionist and author of “Girth Control: The Science of Fat Loss & Muscle Gain,” crunchy foods in particular can trick a person into feeling fuller. The act of chewing may send satiety signals to your body, he says, making you think you’ve eaten more than you really have.

Almonds
One ounce of this food contains only 167 calories, plus it packs roughly 6 g of protein and 3 g of fiber, both nutrients that can make you feel full.

Salmon
A study published in the “International Journal of Obesity” found that when dieters ate salmon a few times a week, they lost about two more pounds than those who didn’t include seafood in their meals.

Eggs
Research has shown that eating eggs at breakfast can help you fight weight gain all day long.

Tomatoes
Like other foods high in fiber, they can help keep you feeling satiated.
Keep in mind that there is evidence that canned tomatoes can be carcinogenic. Always select fresh produce.

Science Says
Lasting Relationships
Come Down To
Basic Traits
by EMILY ESFAHANI SMITH, The Atlantic

(My gratitude to Travis Andrews for this wonderful information.)

Of all the people who get married, only three in ten remain in healthy, happy marriages, as psychologist Ty Tashiro points out in his book “The Science of Happily Ever After,” which was published earlier this year.

Here are some of the highlights:

A powerful kindness strategy revolves around shared joy.

If you look at what drives the deterioration of many relationships, it’s often a breakdown of kindness.

Among couples who not only endure, but live happily together for years and years, the spirit of kindness and generosity guides them forward.

Amazingly,

Scientists can predict with up to 94 percent certainty whether couples — straight or gay, rich or poor, childless or not — will be broken up, together and unhappy, or together and happy several years later. Much of it comes down to the spirit couples bring to the relationship. Do they bring kindness and generosity.

We’ve all heard that partners should be there for each other when the going gets rough. But research shows that being there for each other when things go right is actually more important for relationship quality.

Among couples who not only endure, but live happily together for years and years, the spirit of kindness and generosity guides them forward.

Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute have found that a fundamental new mechanism for the known beneficial effects of resveratrol — the grape ingredient touted as an elixir of youth: it powerfully activates an evolutionarily ancient stress response in human cells.

“This stress response represents a layer of biology that has been largely overlooked, and resveratrol turns out to activate it at much lower concentrations than those used in prior studies,” said senior investigator Paul Schimmel, professor and member of the Skaggs Institute for Chemical Biology. The discovery is reported in Nature.

Resveratrol is a compound produced in grapes, cacao beans, Japanese knotweed and other plants in response to stresses including infection, and ultraviolet radiation. Resveratrol is available in pill or tablet form from your local health food store.

It has attracted widespread scientific and popular interest over the past decade, as researchers have reported that it extended lifespan and prevented diabetes in obese mice and vastly increased the stamina.
