Dedicated to the beautiful
Mother
of our wonderful children.
No greater Love
have I ever found.

Through Loving Eyes

A Mother will always see
Through her child’s eyes,
Always feel the vibrant Love,
Fast flowing like a raging torrent
To the Eternal Sea
Of God’s Love
In you
And me.

My Mother’s tears of pain and joy
I keep deep inside
This heart of mine,
As I find my tears
Do not belong to me.

It doesn't get much better than this.

They flow everlastingly
Through those that Love,

In Eternal Rivers
That nourish Life,
And wash away
Our sins,
Assuage our grief,
And transform,
In the mirror of our memory
Into tears of forgiveness,
Comforted by our Belief.

Clouds of disbelief
Only block the Sun,
Placed in the Firmament Above
By God on the second day

Of His Love.
Into this vast expanse,
He set the moon, the stars and the sun,
To shine down upon
Everyone.

Some people never see the Light until the day they die. – Neil Diamond

Do not let the darkness
And doubt o
f others,
The fear that knows not Love,

Shield you
From His Comfort.
The shelter you seek
From the storms of living
Dwells not in the elements of life.
It lay in wait,
Sacred and Silent in patient Vigil,
Inside a heart
Filled with Love,
Devoid of hate.

You can travel for miles
In your child’s smiles.
Far beyond the borders
Of this moment,
Into a tomorrow
Which will never end.

Such is the Love of God
In you,
Eternal Love
Flowing everlastingly,
And in the very same moment,
Into and out of
A Vast Sacred Sea.

  The reason God is real.

  Unique
In all the ways of the world,
The Blessed Love of every child

Is the Salvation
Of all Mankind,
The justification for being,
The Hope of tomorrow fulfilled,
The end of all doubt,
The reason
God is real.

God Loved us
Enough to share
The Love of a Child,
His Child.

And no greater Love
Could He feel.

His Child looked at Mankind
Through other children’s eyes,
And shared the vibrant Love,
The Eternal Warmth,
Hope everlasting,
From Above.

We pretend never and are Forever.

Every kind thought
Tells us who we are,
Every deed
Where we are,
Every Prayer
Why we are.

And what is Love?

Easy to ask,
So easy to see.
Love is the Mother
Who gives us life.
Love is the breath
Of her precious being.

Like the soft wind blowing,
As God formed man from
The dust of this Earth
And breathed into his nostrils
The breath of Love we call Life,
And child of clay
Became a living being.

A Mother whispers of this
Love Everlasting,
As she looks deeply into our eyes
Promising tomorrow,
With Love
That never dies.

rose

  Such is the Love all around us.

What is Love?

Love is God in us.
Ask and He will reveal

Love,
Pure,

Powerful,
Everlasting,
The only thing
That is Real.

If we could but know
That every child is ours,
That every child is us,

And we are all Sacred Children
Of God.

Our children are of our Love,
Our lives of the far reaches of Forever,
And our sins made of
What is given,
To be forgiven.

Leaves

My friends,
The Love of God is in us
And all around us,
In the
Leaves that flutter
Gently in the wind,

The Colors of evening shades,
Shadows of silver
Floating slowly over
The landscapes of our brief lives,
As we pretend never,
And are Forever.
Such is the Love all around us,
Here,
And ever after.

A Mother’s precious Love,
Is a Sacred Sacrifice
For those who come after.
The precious Love of a Mother,
Forever in Love,
And forever after.

Every child is ours, every child is us.

“Children are mankind’s best and last hope.
Like the young of all creatures, they want to like,
they want to love, and they will love,
unless deliberately and carefully taught otherwise.
For this is the true education
– of the heart.”
Oskar Schindler

Oskar and Emilie Schlindler

Oskar and Emilie Schindler – With rare courage and deep compassion they saved hundreds of precious lives during World War II.

Matter is NOT the ONLY reality

Quantum mechanics has questioned

the material foundations of the world
by showing that atoms and subatomic particles
are not really solid objects,
they do not exist with certainty
at definite spatial locations and definite times.
Most importantly, Quantum Mechanics
explicitly introduced the mind
into its basic conceptual structure,
since it was found that particles being observed
and the observer, are linked.
This phenomenon implies
that the consciousness of the observer
is vital to the existence
of the physical events being observed,
and that mental events
affect the physical world.”

Matter is NOT the only reality.
In fact,
It may not be reality
at all.

“The day science begins
to study non-physical phenomena,

it will make more progress in one decade
than in all the previous centuries
of its existence.”

The MIND diet
may slow brain aging by 7.5 years

The MIND diet,
which is short for “Mediterranean-DASH Diet
Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay,”
was developed by Martha Clare Morris, ScD,
a nutritional epidemiologist, and her colleagues.

Everyone experiences decline with aging;
and Alzheimer’s disease is now
the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S.

 As the name suggests,
the MIND diet is a hybrid of the Mediterranean
and DASH
(Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diets.
Both have been found to reduce the risk
of cardiovascular conditions,
like hypertension, heart attack and stroke. read more

The MIND diet
has 15 dietary components,
including 10 “brain-healthy food groups”

The study found that to avoid the devastating effects of
cognitive decline, you must limit intake
of the designated unhealthy foods,
especially butter (less than 1 tablespoon a day),
sweets and pastries, whole fat cheese,
and fried or fast food.

To adhere to and benefit from the MIND diet,
a person would need to eat
at least three servings of whole grains,
a green leafy vegetable
and one other vegetable every day,
along with a glass of red-grape juice,
snack most days on nuts,
have beans every other day or so,
eat poultry and berries at least twice a week
and fish at least once a week.

Berries are the only fruit specifically
to be included in the MIND diet.
Blueberries are one of the more potent foods
in terms of protecting the brain.

Unbridled Love

          Dedicated to the memory of
          Oskar and Emilie Schindler

Oskar and Emilie saved upwards of 1,200 Jewish men, women and children from the gas chambers of Auschwitz and Gross-Rosen during the Holocaust. Today there are more than 8,000 descendents – the precious children and grandchildren.

Emilie Schlindler

Pure Grace

The story of their lives bears witness to a rare purity of goodness, love and compassion. Together they were truly inspiring evidence of courage and human decency during the evil of the Holocaust.

They spent millions to feed, protect and save people. It was everything they possessed and Oskar died penniless. But their existence on this Earth became something of the Eternal. Their Love transcended space and time in ways we shall never understand. Today they are remembered for real courage and rare compassion in a world of unbelievable brutality and evil. And their legacy is simple and powerful and pure. It is Love. And only Love is real.

My Dear Friends,

You, too, are a Savior.
And you are more than One,
The many of One,
The Plural of Infinity,
The Divide of None.

“Whoever saves one life,
saves the world entire.”
– the Talmud

One is the Gift
God benevolently bestowed in you.
But silent and unseen,
The Gift of your being,
Is Infinite in Virtue.
Far, far more than you think you are,
Not apparent to eye or mind,
Your Love outshines the brightest Star.

“Silent and unseen God comes,
but with infinite power and love –
with a love for you
beyond your comprehension.”
– Mother Teresa

The Savior and the Saved

You are here and everywhere,
Now and Forever,
The Savior and the Saved,
Treasure more than precious,
Forgiver and Forgiven,
An Infinite Trace
In the Sacred space
Of Heart and Mind,
Creation of Pure Grace,
Child of Perfection,
Beloved, Embraced.

Your unbridled Love
Harbors the Fleet of all Nations,
When wide the gate is open,
And One Heart
That beats for another,
Goes forth with courage to save
One,
One who is other,
And makes many of One,
Sister and Brother.

“To see a world in a grain of sand,
and heaven in a wild flower;
to hold infinity in the palm of your hand
and eternity in an hour.”
– William Blake

Schindlers

Sacred above all others

For you are
The Plural of Infinity,
The Divide of None,
Everlasting to Everlasting
In Love,
Sacred above all others,
Below
Or Above.

Yes,
You harbor the Fleet of all Nations,
In the Infinite Space
Of a Heart filled with Love,
And Abundant with Grace.

What a Paradise Love is

To Love and be so Loved
And never be let go,
Is to know
What a Paradise Love is,
Cradled by the warmth of Two hearts aglow.

In your heart so afraid of waking,
In Soulful yearnings yet undreamed of,
Reach for the warm Embrace of God
In the arms of One
You Love.

You harbor the fleet of all Nations.

And as two hearts beat as One,
In the Infinite endlessness You feel,
You will
Come to know,
Only Love
Is real.
