How Far Do We Travel? / Eight Things Kids Need To Thrive / Friday: Montgomery Street Antique Mall 

Dedicated
with Love
and Admiration
to my wonderful Friend,
and the best Friend
to everyone he met:

Bob Puryear

Thank You
Bob.

I know of no one
I admire more
than this Beautiful Soul.

You are truly admired.

You Life
is the Language
of God’s Love.

Everyone
appreciates the Beautiful Life and Love
you have dedicated
to the precious Children
of this Earth.

We Love You.

Throughout our Journeys
of Life
and Love,
we wonder
as we wander,
how far
do we travel
to change the Life
we have lived?

May our errors
be quivered
like arrows?

Yes.

With thoughts and deeds,
and words we weave
of nothing
but Love.

My Dear Friends,
our heavy heartaches
and pain,
may now be
blended into
precious cargo.

Our moments of
remembrance
can be molded and shaped
into what it already is,
and what
it was always
meant to be.

We
Children
of an Almighty God,
were created by Love,
to Love.

“Whoever does not Love
does not know God,
because
God is Love.”
1 John 4:8

There is nothing
to fear,
when your Heart
is near,
to Loving thoughts
and deeds
and dreams.
.
The Human Heart
is a vast and deep
Ocean
of wants and desires
and dreams of needs.
But
all
your Heart truly wants
is the Love
that is
you.

It is,
as it was to be,
in Love
with Life.

If
you are hoping
wounds heal,
but they do not,
perhaps
it is because
you are at war
with Love.

And that
is a war
that will never
be won.

The web we weave
of traveled threads
can rend apart.
But,
Hope is Home
to the Heart
set free,
by Love.

Always,
look to Love
as you voyage
and dream.
Give your Love
wings,
and Love will be
as it was meant
to be,
and fly you
Home.

When Hearts speak
louder than words,
Life drifts into
the Dreams we Love,
and Life
becomes our
Dreams.

.Once upon a Time
we closed
our tired eyes,
and met
our very best friends,
the ones
who opened the door
and let you in,
into their Hearts
and into their Lives.
.
The ones,
like Mom and Dad,
who kissed you
when you were very young,
on top of your head,
who said without words
spoken or read,
that Love
Is what we are,
why we are alive,
and the only thing
that should
ever be
said.

                  Keep your eyes on the Sky above.

Under God’s Heavens above
we journey so very far
on the roads of Life.

Keep your eyes
on the Sky above.
Let Love rise,
like the Morning Sun,
and never
let Love depart.

“As I journey through the land, singing as I go,
Pointing Souls to Calvary – to the crimson flow,
Many arrows pierce my Soul from without, within;
But my Lord leads me on,
through Him I must win.

Oh, I want to see Him, look upon His Face,
There to sing forever of His Saving Grace;
On the streets of Glory let me lift my voice,
Cares all past, home at last,
ever to rejoice.

When in service for my Lord
dark may be the night,

But I’ll cling more close to Him,
He will give me Light;

Satan’s snares may vex my Soul,
turn my thoughts aside;

But my Lord goes ahead,
leads whate’er betide.”

                – Rufus H. Cornelius
               Oh, I Want to See Him

“If Life’s essence
is securely hidden,
it may be for a good reason:
should man uncover
many more of its secrets
while he is still Spiritually so immature,
it seems he could do himself
and his World
serious harm.”
Guy Murchie
The Seven Mysteries of Life
An Exploration of Science and Philosophy

There are many stories.
Some
are never read.
Others never written,
and can never be read.

A precious few are created
as your Children
are tucked in bed,
as you kiss them
Goodnight,
on the top
of their head.

And their stories are written
in dreams they have,
where they lay
their little head.

            Hearts speak louder than words.

My Dear Friends,
the Nobility
of the Spirit
resides within.

“And you shall Love
the Lord your God
with all your Heart,
with all your Soul,
with all your mind,
and with all your strength.”
Mark 12:30

We each are clothed
in reflections
all around.
And what we mirror,
tells a story
not our own.
But it is there,
it is to be,
and it remains
for all to see,
Eternally.

And what appears
speaks so loudly,
no one can hear
what voices say,
for this language
is beyond the horizon
of who we are,
what we see,
what we can even imagine
shall ever be.

giraffs

           Who kissed you on top of your head.

It is the Language
of God’s Love
for you
and for me.

And it lives
in the
Dreams we Love,
in reflections all around,
in the mirror
of our Lives,
in a story
that becomes
our own.

Open your Heart
and open your fragile mind.
Accept the Love of God.
Let your Life be
A Love Story.

Let it be.

Let it be.
.
Goodnight.

              In reflections all around.

From
Children’s Hospital Colorado:

The eight things kids need to thrive
click here to read more

In an era of aggressive marketing toward kids and parents alike, many parents wonder what kids actually need. Turns out, there’s a pretty clear answer.

“Years of research in child development have identified eight essential requirements for kids to become happy, successful adults,” says Harley Rotbart, MD, a nationally-renowned parenting expert and vice chair emeritus of Pediatrics at Children’s Colorado. “And none of them involve high-tech gadgets, video games or fancy clothes.”

The eight things kids need to thrive

  1. Security

    Kids must feel safe and sound, with their basic survival needs met: shelter, food, clothing, medical care and protection from harm.

  2. Stability

    Stability comes from family and community. Ideally, a family remains together in a stable household, but when that’s not possible, it’s important to disrupt the child’s life as little as possible. Kids and families should be a part of larger units to give them a sense of belonging, tradition and cultural continuity.

  3. Consistency

    No “good cop, bad cop.” Parents should synchronize their parenting and make sure important values stay consistent.

  4. Emotional support

    Parents’ words and actions should encourage kids’ trust, respect, self-esteem and, ultimately, independence.

  5. Love

    Saying and showing you love your kids can overcome almost any parenting “mistakes” you might make. Even when your kids have disobeyed, angered, frustrated and rebelled against you, show them you love them and that you’ll always love them.

  6. Education

    Make sure your kids get the best possible education for their future. This includes school, of course, but it also includes the invaluable life lessons you provide during the time you spend together.

  7. Positive role models

    Parents are their kids’ first and most important role models. Instill your values and teach children empathy by being the kind of person you want them to become.

  8. Structure

    Rules, boundaries, and limits: Without them, kids are forced to be adults before they are ready, and they lose respect for you and other adults.

The “miracle solution”: kids need time

Perhaps the most important factor of all is time. Without enough time to spend with kids and be a parent, “You miss out on the wonderful privileges of parenting,” Dr. Rotbart says. “And kids miss out on some of their needs.”

The converse is also true.

“Time is the miracle solution for most dilemmas of parenthood,” says Dr. Rotbart. “Taken in minutes or hours, the time you spend with your kids gives you the opportunity to provide your kids all their essential needs — and much more.”

Learn Dr. Rotbart’s advice for creating quality time with your kids.

We Are Vibrant, Vexating, Visual Vortices / 10 Things Our Children Need From Us As Their Parents / Friday: Montgomery Street Antique Mall

We can
elevate our thoughts
to touch
the Divine,
and dream the night
into day.

And Love
is the reason
why.

My Dear Friends,
we are
vibrant,
vexating, visual vortices,
spiraling energy
flowing ever upward and out,
and the longivity of our Being
is amplified
by the intensity we bring
to places
of Joy
in our Hearts.
.

Our Essence can become
crystalline in Dimension,
when tuned into
the multitude of realities
made possible
by the existence,
and the essence,
of Love.

We exist
as a dynamic and complex
interplay of existence,
finely tuned
to a multitude of realities
by our Creator.

Our Human Heart
is a gathering place
of pure energy,
beating to the rhythm
of His Universe.

We are
music
to God’s ears.
.
Yes,
Life
is a Song,
and Beautiful beyond
Belief.

There is
a great drama being played out
on the Sacred Earth
during this epic time
of challenges
and very dynamic change.

We Children of God
are infused
with the Light of His Spirit.
And it affects everything and everyone
around us.
And as our awareness grows and expands,
we awaken,
and Bless
anyone and everyone.

As your Radiance grows,
you draw more and more people
into the Sphere of awareness.
And you come to Bless
everyone
with the transforming energy
of Love.

On the pathway of existence,
Love, and only Love,
transcends
our Being
and becomes a wondrous
Universal experience
we call
Life.
.
And as we harmonize
Life,
we radiate the Life-giving elixir
of Love.
The Beautiful Gifts
of Life
and Love,
are the same.
One
cannot exist
without the other.

Goodnight.

Forever Is Not A Measure Of Time / To What End? / Friday Trip: Rollerland West & the Antique Mall

We become
impoverished by ignorance,
depraved by arrogance,
thinking we know
more
than we may be
aware of.

“But when He,
the Spirit of Truth,
comes,
He will guide you
into all the Truth.”
– John 16:13
.
We never fully realize
that the whole
is more
than the sum
of its parts,
that being lost
brings us the
opportunity
to be found,
that to be held
in the warm Embrace
of God
is to be nourished
by our Mother
Earth,
our hair brushed by the wind,
our eyes
fixed on the Truth
within,
revealed by
His Holy Word.
.

“Every
man and woman

are patterned of the whole,
be it of creed, race, age, religion,
that the whole is greater then the sum.”
– Kevin Patrick
.
When God
Lights up the Sky
with the setting of the Sun,
He is really
setting Fire to your
Heart.

            Love always is, and will always be.

Yes,
God’s Love
is a fiery thing.
It illumines
even the darkest night,
casting no shadow
on Earthly things,
setting what is wrong
on the path
to make it
right.

Love
never blind,
can always see.
Shining like a Star,
the Light of our Love
glows ever brightly
from the East
of yesterday,
to the West
of tomorrow.

Close your eyes
that you may see,
Love
always is,
and will always
be.

                          Setting Fire to your Heart.

Forever is not
a measure of time,
for
you cannot measure
that which
does not exist.
Forever is a
Promise
that long after you are gone,
the Love in your Heart
will still exist.

“To whatever extent or way
we may speak of time flowing,
then to that extent time flows
from the future into the past.
The current of time brings the future
into the present
and the present
into the past.”
– Bob Enyart
Pastor, Denver Bible Church

The coast
of our only,
often lonely,
isolated Island
pretends not to be,
to be no one.
It can appear bare,
needing to homeward
repair.

                          To the West of tomorrow.

Close your eyes
So that you may see.
Open your heart,
That you may fully
be.

And please remember,
when you call
His name,
God will never hesitate
to wrap you in Endless
Grace.
His Love
has no beginning
and no end.
His World
is without
end
and can be
yours,
forever
and ever
and ever.

Goodnight.

One picture can whisper more than a thousand words.

Are These Tears for Naught?

“To what end do we proceed
so boldly,

If all we are is chemical reactions?
And what World have you so deftly
sold me,

If you reduce me,
if
I have no Soul to touch?

No Heart to Love,
no evil to rise up above?
No Angels and no ghosts,
no real victories to toast?
If you believe that this is true
then I must ask,

To what end do you proceed?

No fire in our eyes,
no steel in our Hearts?
No magic in our songs,
are we just empty vessels?

Did I not feel your Love,
did I not feel your hate?

And did my Heart just not leap,
and did my Heart not
break?

And are these tears for naught,
and are these words in vain?

If this is all we are
then what have we to gain?

What of all the art and books,
music and poetry?

What of all our memories,
what of our hopes and dreams?

If they hold no value
then we hold no Faith
but greed.

So I must ask you,
to what end do we proceed?

To What End?”

Anthony DiSanteon

If Loving You Was Easy / Energy Drinks / Antique Mall / FLIGHT DECK

If Loving You Was Easy
                             – by Wm. C. Anderson

You will never love someone,
As much as God loves you.
It is the only thing that is real.
And this Everlasting Love is just for you.

If loving you was easy,
God would not love you at all.
When someone truly loves you,
They catch you when you fall.

In this life He Loves us all.
So as you seek
shelter from the storm,

From your fear He will set you free,
His heart will keep you warm.

Close your eyes
So that you may see.
Open your heart,
That you may fully be.

Do not wait
To see the Light
Until the day you die.
The day is near to night.

The Dangers of Energy Drinks

From staff writer Angela E. Rodriguez of the Coyote Chronicle of California State University and others, we find a study released last week by researchers that indicates your kids could be at risk.

The study, headed by Dr. Steven Lipshultz, dean of child safety at University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine, concluded there is no “therapeutic value” in energy drinks. While the popular drinks advertise benefits ranging from re-energizing athletes to increasing stamina, Lipshultz said it’s quite possible the drinks actually have the opposite effect.

According to researchers, teeth begin to suffer irreversible damage from

Rylee and her science project.

energy drinks after just 5 consecutive days of consumption. With an estimated 30% to 50% of United States youth calling energy drinks their beverage of choice, educating this patient population about the beverages’ long-term consequences is important.

“Patients are shocked to learn that these drinks are essentially bathing their teeth in acid,” says Poonam Jain, BDS, MS, lead author of the study.

Energy drink companies are not required to put the amount of citric acid on the products’ labels, therefore consumers will never know the damage that they are causing their teeth. – See more

Even worse, Lipshultz said the sugar, caffeine and other ingredients in the drinks aren’t regulated by the Food and Drug Administration—which classifies them as dietary supplements—and may be dangerous in combination with alcohol and for kids with ADHD, heart conditions and diabetes.

According to healthmad.com, associate professor in the School of

Dental Medicine at Southern Illinois University, Poonan Jain, argues that energy drink consumption not only depletes tooth enamel but also leads to loss of bone mass and kidney stones. – See more

Consumers who are drinking these products are susceptible to damaging their tooth enamel and can develop other long term effects such as acid reflux and high sugar levels, which can lead to diabetes.

Several countries have ordered complete or partial bans of energy drinks or required warning labels on cans after several deaths that appeared to be related to energy drinks in the past few years. Denmark , Turkey and Uruguay have banned all energy drinks, Germany has banned 11 of 16 brands and Australia has banned 5 energy drink makers.

“Other countries are studying energy drinks and many are banning or heavily regulating the products,” Lipshultz said. “At some point, you have to wonder why that is happening.”

A Better Choice

What are some alternatives to energy drinks? Recently, many companies have created drinks similar to energy drinks, they provide the energy and are actually healthy to consume.

Is that Alden with a WHOLE (burp) PIE? Hey, I’m just asking.

One drink that has become extremely popular is called Purple. This drink has seven antioxidants including, Acai, Black Cherry, Pomegranate, Black Currant, Purple Plum, Cranberry, and Blueberry. All of these antioxidants working together create something called the Cascade Effect. Purple also has no added chemicals or sugar. Purple is much healthier compared to the mainstream energy drinks.

Of the health drinks available, this one is known for taste. GNC stores carry Purple.

Another Alternative to Energy Drinks

POM Wonderful is another alternative to energy drinks, This is a privately owned company and manufactures their own brand of pomegranate juice, This particular brand bills its self as one of the most powerful natural antioxidants. It is sold in most major grocery and health food stores or you can find how to get it on line at http://www.pomwonderful.com

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”

– 1 Corinthians 13
