         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.
 1

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.

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
– O. Hooge

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.

Marie Anderson

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.

They Are But Three / If Good Men Do Nothing / Movie: Theory of Everything

 There is only one happiness in life,
to love and be loved.
– George Sand

I Love You

Life has taught us that Love does not consist in gazing at each other but in looking outward, together in the same direction. – Antoine de Saint-Expurey

“I Love You”
Are but three,
You, what you dream,
And what you see.

They say something much more
Than they say,
And harbor within
A world you cannot contain.

One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life:     that word is Love.                         – Sophocles

They are not words,
Oh, Keeper of the Keys.
They are the secrets
That unlock the doors
To hearts in every place,
In every space.

And they are but three.
And they are but yours.
Yours to share,
Yours in Prayer,
To climb three stairs,
To Love so sublime.
They are a poem
In life’s rhyme
,

All in rhythm
With Celestial Time.

Noah turns 13.

Congratulations to Noah    who turned 13.

Three simple sounds
To say what God feels
For you, and for me,
Today, not never,
Now and forever.

You cannot truly know
What you cannot feel.
And feeling not
Conveys less than you are.
And you are all the world
To someone in need,
Who, hearing nothing,
Feels not the beat
Of your heart,
Or his own.

020They are but three
Harbingers of freedom.
They open the wounds
Of a lonely heart,
To feeling,
To healing,
To Loving again.

You can share this love,
This moment.
You, and you alone
Can feel the way,
Convey your Love for another
On a special day,
This day,
Father, Mother, Sister, Brother,
Beloved of another.

We have two new friends.

We have two new friends.

Your life is a Prayer,
Your Love, always there,
To discover,
To give,
To share.

What in the name of All
That resides in
Heaven Above

Are you waiting for?

  More pain in life?

According to the American Cancer Society, 41% of ALL adults will develop cancer in their lifetimes That’s 4 out of 10…or 2 out of 5 people. Read more:

Cole contemplates his next move with the only chess piece on the table.

Professor Rosalie David, at the Faculty of Life Sciences, said:
There is nothing in the NATURAL environment that can cause cancer…so it has to be a man-made disease.

A recent study by University of Manchester scientists has strongly suggested that…cancer is a modern, man-made disease caused by environmental factors such as pollution and diet.

In the extensive study conducted at the University’s KNH Centre for Biomedical Egyptology, scientists examined hundreds of mummies and found…no signs of cancer – with one exception.

The 17th Century Ushers Cancer In

It wasn’t until the 17th century that the first reports of cancer appeared in scientific literature—such as cancer of the scrotum (found in chimney sweeps in 1775, caused by soot particles); and nasal cancer found in users of snuff (finely ground tobacco) in 1761.

The University of Manchester study indicates that cancer-causing factors exist only in modern, industrialized societies –
and cancer is fueled by the excesses of modern life.

  1. The food you eat…

We enjoyed a Holiday lunch with David & Amy Smelley. Thank you!

2. the air you breathe…
3. the clothes you wear…
4. the water you drink…
5. personal care products you use…
6. medications you take…
7. the water you bathe in
8. virtually everything you consume, and
9. everything you do –
10. or are exposed to –
causes cancer these days!

Here are Just a Few Factors Present in 
Modern Life That Cause Cancer:

      • Tobacco (including second-hand and third-hand smoke)
      • Genetically modified food
      • Most laundry detergents
      • Commercial hair dyes

       It was delicious!

        • Air pollution (including carbon monoxide, methylene
chloride, and acrolein)
      • Granite counter-tops (which emit radon)
      • Rancid peanuts and seeds
      • Canola oil
      • Canned tomatoes
We were in the mood to celebrate.

      • Food laced with pesticides
      • Chemicals from aerosol cans
      • Mammograms
      • X-Rays
        • Food microwaved in plastic containers (including plastic wrap, the plastic trays that come with frozen TV dinners, and even plastic baby bottles)

    •Environmental pollutants (such as asbestos, benzene, and formaldehyde)

There is evidence that cancer is curable. I now believe that what prevents us from ending so much unnecessary suffering and death has less to do with science than with economics. We have research studies, medical reports and inspiring real-life healing success stories to prove it!

  • Unbelievably, what has been exposed is the corruption of the cancer industry and the extreme measures they will undertake to discredit, imprison, and professionally destroy any physician who treats cancer patients naturally.
  • One million Americans are diagnosed with cancer every year, and one person of every three will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes; two of every three will die from their cancer within five years.
  • The average cancer patient spends $50,000 fighting the disease, making the cancer industry a 50 billion dollar per year industry; the medical monopoly is not motivated to find a cure when treatment it is so lucrative.
  • Many natural treatments have been used successfully with cancer, but the treatments are hushed, buried, and kept out of public view with smear campaigns funded by the medical cartel.
  • Cancer prevention strategies include specific tips for eating, sleeping, exercising and managing stress. To reduce breast cancer risks from light pollution, Prevention magazine recommends nine hours of sleep nightly in a dark room devoid of both interior (computer screens) and exterior (street lamps) light sources. A study of 12,000 Finnish women found that those who slept nine hours nightly had less than one-third the risk of developing a breast tumor than those who slept only seven or eight hours. Even bright light from a trip to the bathroom can have an affect, so dim nightlights are recommended for night lighting.
    A great time was had by all.

    A great time was had by all.

    My friends, until we start electing people to represent us, we the people, and not corporate and financial interests, our deeply loved ones will continue to suffer indescribably horrible deaths. We must recruit courageous, independent thinking and, most importantly, deeply sensitive, caring and loving people to represent us.Frankly, these individuals need to love us more than they love themselves.

    It was a delightful time.

    It was a delightful time.

    These loving people exist. I have met a few of them. And you have met them too. At one time in our history we called them patriots. Reach deeply into their hearts and ask them to make a sacrifice to this Nation, to you and me, to our children. If we do not tap into the vibrant and courageous heart of this Nation, there is no hope. Yes, there is another cancer that dwells among us. And it is horrendously sad to recognize, but it resides within our body politic – within the fiber of our society.

    And yes, it is a cancer of the heart, our heart. My friends, our collective being is slowly being eaten alive by the evil that dwells within.

    “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil
    is that good men do nothing.”
