Eternity In The Human Heart / ADHD Diets / Classes Resume Sept. 5

“He has made everything
Beautiful

in its time.
He has also set Eternity
in the Human Heart.”
– Ecclesiastes 3:11

                                 Beautiful in its time.

The beginning of Life,
and the end of Living,
are like the morning
and evening Sky,
streaked with the Beauty of
Truth.

A Clarion Call
begins
ALL,
and your time
is here.
Wake up
and come alive.

For Earthly Life
is but a vapor,
in the eyes of Eternity.

“A vapor is short-lived.
You see the mist at one moment
and a few minutes later it’s gone.
You see the steam
coming out of your coffee cup

and in just a second,
it disappears into the air.
Life is like that.

YOU,
are the Harmonious Symphony
of God’s Ultimate Expression.
And your fascination
with Life
can turn into Love
for you,
and into the
Joy of Living.

         Fascination with Life.

Don’t deny
the precious moments
you feel.
Even wandering Rainbows
leave a bit
of their color,
just for YOU.
Look for it
in your Heart.

      Sing your name.

And if you listen,
not with the mind,
but with your Sacred
Heart,
the morning Songbird
will sing
your name.
And you will know
the lingering Sunsets
grownups seldom understand,
peer through
the curtains
of pain and sorrow,
as this day ends
with a promise
of Tomorrow.

Hearts in Heaven
beat in time
with yours.
And a song
of Salvation,
by the deliverance
of God,
endures.
Celebration
will be yours,
as the illusions
of this Life
are cast aside,
and YOU
become more Beautiful
and real,
in the next.

                A promise of tomorrow.

When Hearts
deny the brevity
of the moment,
the Light
of a Star,
posing as mine,
passes for
Time.

What an illusion
this Life
can become.

May Life
always bring you
your wishes
upon a Star.

“Because the Holy Spirit of God
is in you,
you are never alone.
You are never hopeless.
You are never powerless.
Because He is in you
and with you wherever you go,
He is never distant.”
– Stormie Omartian

Do not deny
every moment you feel.
These moments
are real.

Hearts are hardened
when they
betray such
to each other.

Enjoy Life
at your leisure,
as you happily concede
the mandates of Heaven
lay inscribed
in the Heart,
and in what
you Believe.

             Streaked with the Beauty of Truth.

Life
is not an answer,
but many, many
questions.
They lay
between every beat
of every Heart,
as silence shouts
through every night
of never knowing
Love
is the question,
and the answer.

My Dear Friends,
take a few moments
each day
and look deeply
into your Child’s eyes.
Look
until you feel your Child’s
Heart
beating in time
with yours.
Listen intently,
and you can hear
the spaces
between your child’s
thoughts.

    Every precious Living thing.

Then softly speak,
and fill the voids
with Love.
And one day,
ALL thoughts will be
overflowing,
with Love for
YOU,
and for everyone,
and every
precious Living thing.
Eternity
lies enfolded within
a Sacred
sigh
of relief,
knowing your child
is safe,
within the sound of your voice,
and joyfully living
between two beats
of your Heart,
the one past
and the one
to be.

Eternity
lies between
not knowing,
and knowing,
YOU
are
within reach.

Eternity
is in every Moment.

Goodnight.

Love is the question, and the answer.

ADHD diets
haven’t been researched a lot. Data is limited and results are mixed. Many health experts, though, think that what you eat and drink may play a role in helping symptoms.

One expert, Richard Sogn, MD, says that whatever is good for the brain is likely to be good for ADHD. You may want to eat:

A high-protein diet. Beans, cheese, eggs, meat, and nuts can be good sources of protein. Eat these kinds of foods in the morning and for after-school snacks. It may help improve concentration.

Fewer simple carbohydrates. Cut down on how many of these you eat: candy, corn syrup, honey, sugar, products made from white flour, white rice, and potatoes without the skins.

More complex carbohydrates. These are the good guys. Load up on vegetables and some fruits, including oranges, tangerines, pears, grapefruit, apples, and kiwi. Eat this type of food in the evening and it may help you sleep.

More omega-3 fatty acids. You can find these in tuna, salmon, and other cold-water white fish. Walnuts, Brazil nuts, and olive and canola oil are other foods with these in them. You could also take an omega-3 fatty acid supplement. The FDA approved an omega compound called Vayarin as part of an ADHD management strategy.

The Beautiful Abstract Art of Life / 7 Nutrients You May Be Missing / Friday: Fort Worth Stock Show

“He has made everything Beautiful
in its time.

He has also set Eternity
IN the human heart;
yet no one can fathom what God has done
from beginning to end.”
– Ecclesiastes  3:11  NIV

sun-through-trees-b

Pure energy and cosmic flow.

Our Children
are unapologetic
in yearning to know

the Source of all Existence,
the Ultimate Meaning
of Life.

In the process
of helping them to contemplate
the seemingly unfathomable,
we can come to know that
in our Love
for our children,
there is the ultimate meaning
of Life,
there is understanding,
there is Hope for them,
and for all

Mankind.

one-white-flower

A vivacious Love of Life and Living.

Our quest
to understand
the Beautiful Abstract Art
that is a Child,
invites you to discover
something about yourself,
and
about the meaning
of Life itself.

It is not easy to comprehend
  our Portraits drawn from Living,
blended as they are
with the illusions of Life.

Our reason for Being
appears
to be open to interpretation.

Our representation on Earth,
in such brevity
as is this one moment,
is as fleeting
as the movement of clouds
across the horizon.

many-flowers-b

He has made everything Beautiful.

Understanding the Art
that is your Child,
requires a truly open mind,
devoid of Judgement.
When you look at the Living Portrait
of such a precious Gift,
what do you see?

Whirling shapes,
appearing at times
to approach the speed of Light,
seemingly weightless,
colorfully arrayed patterns
in constant motion.

I know.
Children seem to be
that way.

But look closely,
and you will see
in the language of Nature,
and in the Nature of
you precious Child,

a vivacious Love
of Life and Living.

green-leaves

   In the language of Nature.

 Pure energy and cosmic flow,
a Divine message
that in the dynamic of Life,
is the Divinity of Love.


For they are Beautifully
intertwined.
They are one.

The Abstract Art
that is our Lives,
and the Lives of our Children,
is truly splendiferous,
delighting our intellectual and emotional admiration.
But,
this Art
is subject to interpretation,

which doesn’t openly declare
what it is all about.

It draws you in,

it requires you to look,
to inquire,
to listen,

to truly wonder.

My Friend,
you must embark upon a new Journey
to understand this Painting,
this Portraiture of Life,
this precious Child of yours,
and see where it takes you.

The Beautiful Abstract Nature of Life
gives you the freedom
to interact,
to interpret,

to explore,
to truly wonder about the meaning
of the Masterpiece of Living.

streaked-clouds

As fleeting as the movement of clouds.

Our interaction with the Beautiful Works
of God’s Blessed Creations
is intensely personal.
It enriches our own Life
and becomes a
Sacred awareness.

proverbs_30-5 Our goal,
My Friend,
is not to stop
the forward motion
of Life.
We are here
to direct,
to point the Way
toward the Will of God,
to Live in Love
and to Love
Life.

“It costs so little
to teach a child to love,
and so much
to teach him to hate.”

– Father Edward Flanagan

We may not realize
that the Beautiful Art we are
emanates from an Artist
with an incomprehensible understanding
and an Abiding Love
of every Creation.

eerie-light-in-trees

The Beautiful Works of God’s Blessed Creations.

We are perfectly rendered
Portraits.
We are His Children,

gifted with the freedom
to express our own creativity,
unencumbered by the weight
of the will
of anyone other
than ourselves.

“I will praise thee;
for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:
  marvelous are thy works;
and that my soul knoweth right well.”
– Psalms 139:14  (KJV)

 The searching, exploratory motions
and expressions of your child
can be confusing,
even alarming or menacing.

But Art and Life
are about form, shade and tone,
line, texture, pattern, composition
and complex processes.
These qualities describe
what the Art of Life
and the experience of Living
look like
and how we were
Created.

butterflly-on-hand-b

Art and Life are about form, shade and tone.

Life is an exploration.
And meaning
is derived from emotion
and experience.

Do you want to understand
your Child?
Try to compose a story
about the Beautiful sounds
of a songbird,
or a poem
about Love.

The Beautiful Work of Art
you are,
cannot be explained in words.
Your existence
far surpasses the essence of description.
  The work of Art that is
all Mankind,
was lifted into higher Spheres
of Creation,
when God breathed His Life
into us.

bird-brazil-b

Allow yourself to be absorbed by the Beautiful Art.

Accept that you are
what you are.
Accept your Child.

The meaning
of your Life
is far, far beyond
what you will ever
comprehend,
and far more Beautiful
than you can ever
behold.

 Let the Will of God
wash over you,
and guide you.

Lift your eyes
and let your Heart

dance in wonder
over His Beautiful Painting,
that is you.

The way God provides
is always
filled with Beauty.

street-lamps

Play with the Paintings that surround you.

Let the Beautiful Symphony
of your precious Being

wash over your Soul.

Let it be.

Let your eyes
play with the Paintings
that surround you,
envelope you,
are you.

Enjoy the flow,
follow the twists and turns
with your Heart,
where ever they lead,
where ever they go.

Allow yourself to be absorbed
by the Beautiful Art
of this Life.

flower-blue-b

 The work of Art that is Life.

Emotions and memories will emerge
from existence.
How you interact with them
is how they
speak to you,
how the various elements

affect you.

Take a close look
at the work of Art

that is Life,
that is your Child,

that is You.
You are the Texture,
the Strength,
the Thought
from a Loving Brushstroke
of God.

What a difference
knowing makes,
knowing you are the Living,
Beautiful, Abstract
Masterpiece of Art
made in the Image
and by the Loving Hand
of Almighty God.

And so is
your precious Child.

Goodnight.

7 Nutrients You May Be Missing in Your Diet
by Kathleen M. Zelman, MPH, RD, LD

Potassium

Like most Americans, you probably need more of this mineral. It’s good for your blood pressure and may lower your risk for kidney stones and bone loss. Your muscles and nerves need it to work right, too. It’s found naturally in milk, potatoes, sweet potatoes, bananas, avocados, and legumes.

Magnesium

Spinach is good for you, but do you know why? Along with beans, peas, whole grains, and nuts (especially almonds), it’s a good source of magnesium. Put some or all of these foods on your plate to help prevent disease.

If you have stomach or intestinal problems, type 2 diabetes, or long-term alcohol abuse, or if you’re an older adult, you’re more likely to be short on magnesium

Vitamin A

It supports good vision, healthy immunity, and tissue growth. There are two types of vitamin A: retinol and carotenoids, like beta-carotene. To get more into your diet, focus on orange and yellow fruits and vegetables, like sweet potatoes, carrots, and winter squash. You’ll also get it from spinach and broccoli.

Vitamin D

Your bones, muscles, and nerve fibers all need it. It also helps keep your immune system in its prime.

Your body can make vitamin D when you get enough sunshine. But too much sun is bad for you, so you can also eat foods including salmon, mackerel, and mushrooms exposed to ultraviolet light. Liver, cheese, and egg yolks have small amounts. Milk, some brands of orange juice, and many cereals are fortified with it, too.

Calcium

There’s more to this mineral than healthy teeth and bones. It’s also key for your muscles, including your heart. With potassium and magnesium, it might even help prevent high blood pressure. Dairy is an excellent source. Other foods with calcium include canned salmon, kale, and broccoli. Remember, you need vitamin D for your body to absorb calcium.

Vitamin C

This vitamin, found in many fruits and vegetables, boosts the growth of bone and tissue. It’s an antioxidant, too, so it might also help protect your cells from damage.

Fiber

You can get loads of benefits from whole grains, beans, and veggies and fruits. A high-fiber diet can help lower your cholesterol and keeps you regular. Plus, it might lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers. Extra fiber is great if you want to lose a few pounds: It fills you up, so you eat less.

“From a distance there is harmony,
and it echoes through the land.
And it’s the Hope of Hopes,
it’s the Love of Loves,
it’s the Heart of every man.”
– Bette Midler

flowers-and-yellow-sun

     Beauty can liberate your Spirit.

We are never more
than far away.
But wherever we are,
near or far,
we cannot behold
all of God’s Beauty
that surrounds us,
if we look
only with our eyes.

“He has made everything beautiful
in its time.
Also, he has put Eternity
into man’s Heart . . .”
Ecclesiastes 3:11

Beauty
can liberate your Spirit.
Think upon it.
It has happened
many times before.

path-b“You’ll find Beauty
in the simplest things
and in the deepest depths
of complexity.
Beauty exists
for the purpose of
filling your Heart
with Joy.

Beauty’s reason
is pure delight.
Take delight
in Beauty
and it becomes
even MORE Beautiful.

Behold the Beauty
that fills your Life.
It is a Blessing
that has NO
equal.”
Ralph Marston

The Resplendence
of His Love
resides
even in a beautiful drop of rain,
nestled in the arms
of shades of green
on a leaf,
in a tree,
and in the chill
of evening’s breath,
with the warmth
of someone’s arms
around you.

“I wish someone’s arms eilene
were holding me as tight.
But the devil wind blows harder on me,
cold and bare
And someone’s arms won’t be reaching
for there’s nobody there.”
Eilen Jewell

     God’s Beauty surrounds us

The shadow’s call
will fly away
on our journey
to the Light of day,
and night overcome,
to find the Sun
filling the Promise
of a Beautiful
new day,
a Promise
that lives within
everyone.

How much
of Life
is left to live
and Love?

We are here
but a single fleeting moment,
like a drop of dew
at dawn,
never to stay.
Life

cast into the illusion
of a night and a day.

lake-and-sun-set

                    The illusion

Yes,
Life is brief
at best.
But one hundred percent
of the rest of your Life
is left
for you to Love,
to hold in warm embrace,
to share
with God’s Grace.

My wish for you
is that you truly live

every day,
and save
your death,
for the day
you die.

We choose
to truly live

or just exist,
and die a little
each day.

sea-waves-b

Save your death for the day you die.

My Dear Friends,
your mind
is NOT beating
to the rhythm of Life.
It feels not
any emotion.

It is simply
an intermediate
repository
of short term memory,
a biochemical processor
of mere momentary thought,
reflecting upon
Love’s labors lost
and found,
Life Crowned
and made to appear
profound.

Love looks not with the eyes,
but with the mind,
And therefore is winged Cupid 
painted blind.”
William Shakespeare

Long term memory
engrams
reside a trillion fold,
and within every cell
of your very fragile body,
especially
the Heart.
Once in Love,
always in Love.
Once hurt by Love,
the pain is forever
felt.

drop-on-leaf-b

Nestled in the arms of shades of green.

Life
expresses itself
in action
and
emotion.
Life happens
from us,
not to us.

beautiful-rose

         Dwell in the Beauty.

Life
is the Flower,
but Love,
my Dear,
is the Nectar.

“Life
without Love,
is like a tree
without
blossoms or fruit.”
Kahlil Gibran

And what is the message of Love?
  It is
the Happiness and the Joy
YOU
bring to others.

The Beauty and Mystery of Life

You know,
my life is based on a true story,

  and so is yours.
And the truth is:
we have not truly lived
every day.

Life is the Gift
of every single
day.

  If you dwell
in the Beauty and Mystery of Life,
  how could you possibly
be sad,
lonely?

  Love is the aroma of
everything that abides
after a Spring rain,
the softness of the grass
upon which you lie,
the warmth of a sunny day,
the taste of a ripe peach,
whatever God allows
to come your way
.

compassion-b

Love is the boundless Tapestry
of God’s Beautiful Landscape
of Life,
and Loving,
and Living,
and Longing
to be.

Life is truly lived
moment to moment,
smile to smile,
handshake to handshake,
Loving deed
to Loving deed,

to meet someone’s
need.

leaves-b

    What is the message of Love?

My friends,
we need not fear
death.
Life is not really lost
on the day
we die.

It is only lost
while we live:
lost in sorrow,
lost in a sigh,
lost
in a precious moment
that passed you by,
lost in the sadness
that made you cry,
lost in what
your tender Heart felt
but did not say,
lost in never
feeling grateful to God
for the Beautiful Gift
of another new
Day.

white-flower-c

   The shadow’s call will fly away.

Yes,
we die
moment by moment
and not
in a day.

Don’t be living
to die.

Life
is the most exciting
when we Love someone
more than Life,
when we transcend
this moment
of our awareness,
to discover
we are alive inside
the Hopes and Dreams
of someone else,
that Life
is more than living,
it is Dreaming the Dream
that Love
is all there is,
and all
that should ever
be.

mts-and-sun-b

Dreaming the Dream that Love is all there is.

When we awake
inside the Heart of another,
we discover
the reason for being –
the Beauty of Love.

We die
day by day,
moment by moment.

Life is lost
wallowing in the poverty

of selfish actions.
It is lost wasting
the precious Gift
of time.

We destroy the Gift
of our Life

each moment it is not
fully lived.

Now,
let us busy ourselves
Giving,
Sharing,
Smiling,
Laughing,
Daring,

Forgiving,
Loving,
and truly Living.

Give Life a chance.
Take a chance
on Love!

Goodnight.

clouds-only

We die moment by moment and not in a day.

“Live as if you were living
a second time,
and as though you had
acted wrongly

the first time.”
