There is no Greater I, than We / Things to START doing / School Calendar 2017-18

There is no greater I, than We.

The only problem
with Love –
we think
it ends.

But our LOVE
only begins,
over and over and over
again.
And God’s Love,
as hard as it is
to comprehend,
had no beginning
and has
no end.

“The Universe may have existed
forever,
according to a new model
that applies quantum correction terms
to complement Einstein’s
theory of general relativity.”

Where ever you
go,
what ever you
do,
Love is always
patiently waiting for
YOU,
to nourish,
to enjoy,
to share,
to save
YOU.

                   Patiently waiting.

The journey
is long,
the Journey
is short,
Love is always near,
and
very, very far,
but only
in space,
never in the
trace
you are
in Time.

The moment
doesn’t exist,
that Love cannot
be.

Your finest day,
My Friend,
is yet
to be.

There is no
space
between two Hearts
that beat
for one another.
There is
no greater
I,
than We.

We live
in
each other’s
Hearts.

Eternity,
My Friend,
lies
in the next
beat of your
Heart.
In
that moment in
Time,
Every dream
is a Heartbeat
away.

Every Joy,
in every Dream,
lies within
one
moment.
The next moment
tells
what will be.
The next
beat of your Heart
opens the door
to
Eternity.

Your Life,
My Friend,
is not
your Life.

Like letters
you have written,
never meaning to
send –

your Life
is Life’s
longing
to be.

             Once I, was WE.

Mother
and Father,
if your voice is
warm and tender,
Love for you,
time
will never forsake.

And your smiles
join you,
to God’s ecstasy.

           Warm and tender.

My Friends,
when you think
about it,
wars never end.
Hatred ignited to
the destruction of precious
God given, Human Life,
forever spirals
out of control.
Without the intervention
of Love and Forgiveness,
it too begins
over and over and over
again.

I am truly proud
of the Love expressed by President Truman
following the devastation of World War II.
America’s post-war commitment to Europe and Japan
was a beautiful demonstration
our Nation’s character.

Secretary of State George C. Marshall
said on June 5, 1947:
“Our policy is directed not against any country or doctrine
but against hunger, poverty, desperation and chaos.
Its purpose should be the revival of a working economy
in the world so as to permit the emergence
of political and social conditions
in which free institutions can exist.”

Yes,
the United States of America
worked to rebuild post-war Japan and Europe,
investing $22 billion assistance
across 16 war-torn nations from 1946 to 1952.

  Love
My Dear Friends,
means what it means
everywhere in the New Testament
– to do good to, to care for, to bless,
to sacrifice for.

Jesus teaches us
that we should not return
evil for evil, harm for harm,
but rather return good for evil
to anyone who harms us.

Harry S. Truman faced some of the most complex issues to ever face any World leader.

“But I say unto you,
Love your enemies,
bless them that curse you,
do good to them that hate you,
and Pray for them.”
Matthew 5:44

This act of Christian compassion
following the worst war in History,
stopped the cycle of hatred and violence
that started with World War I
and continued into World War II.
This act of Forgiveness and Love
turned adversaries into allies
and prevented
World War III.
.

If you look deep enough
into the Hearts of others,
there is good
in every Human Being.
We are all
worthy of Redemption,
Forgiveness,
Salvation.

“God’s desire
is for all to be saved:
This is good and acceptable
in the sight of God our Savior,
who desires all men to be saved
and to come to the Knowledge
of the Truth.”

1 Timothy 2:3-4

God
Loves us,
each and everyone.

Countless
are the times
that individual
Human Beings,
who strayed
from the Righteous Path,
have seen the
Light.

These beautiful People
opened their Hearts
and let the LOVE
of God
flow over them.

      There is no greater I, than We.

The mind of man
can be filled
with myth, illusion and
contradiction.
We
can be persuaded
to do anything.
History
is replete
with our errors.

But God’s Love
can touch us
one time,
and last
for a Lifetime.

Our Love
is nothing to fear.
But
the absence of Love
is the cause
of all our fears.

There is
a vast and deep ocean
of tears
shed
because the fearful
never saw
the Light of Love
streaming down
from Above.

The way back,
cannot be found
in the dark.
One
must clearly see
the way.
And the path
lies through
the beautiful, precious
Human Heart,
as it listens
to the Word
of God.

If
we but ask,
God
will show us
the way.
Our Prayers
will
be answered.

There is
no greater force
on Earth,
than the Power
of Love.

Goodnight.

        One must clearly see the way.

Benefits From Daily Coffee

“If you make someone laugh,
you give them a little vacation
.”
                         – Winston Churchill

        Our moment of life – a brief trace in time.

From Jeffrey Huntington in “New Health Benefits From Daily Coffee” published in Life Extension Magazine we find another example of the rapidly expanding literature regarding the benefits of drinking coffee. Please click here for article.

The scientific community is expressing growing interest in discovering the health benefits contained in coffee.  And research in this area has exploded in the past several years. And researchers have found that the risk of dying was significantly reduced in those who drank coffee (all levels of consumption) compared to those who did not.

New epidemiological studies have shown sharp reductions in the risk of overall death among coffee drinkers. There now is compelling evidence of coffee’s health benefits regarding cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, neuro-degenerative disease, plus liver and kidney cancers. Researchers from the University of Scranton report that coffee is the No. 1 source of antioxidants in the American diet. (HealthCastle.com)

Can coffee be part of a healthy diet? There is a new perception on the health benefits of coffee. Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition. seem to confirm the positive view. From the Mayo Clinic, Donald Hensrud, M.D. reports that studies have shown coffee may have health benefits, including protecting against Parkinson’s disease, type 2 diabetes and liver disease, including liver cancer. It also appears to improve cognitive function and decrease the risk of depression. Click here for more.

Is he taking pictures of us again?

From lowered cancer risks to a sharper memory, more studies are showing that coffee is good for you – but why?

Regular coffee drinkers have a 39 percent decreased risk of head and neck cancer, according to a new study published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Bio-markers & Prevention. Those who drank an estimated four or more cups a day had significantly fewer cancers of the mouth and throat than non coffee drinkers, the study found.

The safe daily dosage of caffeine is 300 milligrams for adults and 35 to 40 milligrams a day for children, according to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS). Click here for more.

It is difficult to even imagine the delicate, intricate beauty that comes from the Mind of God. But it is all around us.

“Coffee contains more than a thousand chemicals, some of which have antioxidant and anti-mutagenic activities,” according to Mia Hashibe, assistant professor of medicine at the University of Utah.

Drinking coffee provides for your longevity and offers many protective benefits. Please pardon me while I pour another cup! I have found that the more I mention this, the more thirsty I am.

The sign “The Buck Stops Here” was on President Truman’s desk in his White House office. I am making a new sign for my desk that says, “The Starbuck Stops Here!”.

So don’t walk past my office with coffee in hand without stopping to share. You are endangering my life by withholding this life giving drink.

And, I grew up in west Texas, so I have stories to tell.
