A Gift to You from God

A Gift to You from God

Please Read This NOW.

May 16, 2013

I am living proof that you should enjoy your life moment by moment.

Never waste a moment when you can say, “I love you.

Never pass the opportunity by to hug someone you love.  Hug that person

close to you. Remember how wonderful it is that they are a part of your life.

Be grateful for small miracles we often take for granted.

Each moment is an opportunity to begin again, no matter what may seem impossible.  We are given life, and it is a wonderful gift.

Don’t diminish your spirit by dousing yourself with man’s enemies –

alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, hatred, vanity, and over-indulgence of anything that can harm you.

Time and circumstance happens to all men.

We have no real control over our lives, though we like to think we do.

The ONLY thing we have control of one hundred percent of the time, is our response to circumstances that come to us.

One moment I was thanking God for the blue sky, stars, my husband, the health of my children and grandchildren, and within a moment my life has changed forever.  I thank God all those awesome things I was thanking Him for have not changed.

I am working hard to recover from something I NEVER thought would happen to me.  For those of you who are following this blog, I will expound tomorrow, but for now I must rest.

God bless you and your loved ones.  God bless us all.  Now go hug someone or tell them you love them!

If you loose your brakes while driving……

March 18, 2010

This is just good emergency information you may not have heard. Do not turn off the engine as if you have power steering you will loose control of the wheel.

Do put your foot on the brake, shift into neutral, and try to pull off the road. That’s about all you can do, but at least you won’t be going one hundred miles an hour and endangering yourself and everyone else on the road.

(If you wonder why I posted this in each category, it’s because most of us drive!)

Be safe when driving. Courtesy is underrated, and if people think “guns” are dangerous, just remember your car is a huge and heavy piece of equipment that can be a huge danger if not driven safely.
I have been asked what happened to my stressmanagementmagic blog. I no longer write that blog, but write here:

Check it out and take a few minutes between now and May 1st. There is no fee, great prizes, and it will bring some good things to mind, I hope!
Here is a Bible verse that I found JUST WHEN I NEEDED IT. Sometimes it happens that way.
“Even when we are too weak to have any faith left, He remains faithful to us and will help us, for He cannot disown us, who are a part of Himself, and He will always carry out His promises to us.”
2 Timothy 2:13



Finding Solace

March 12, 2009

To find solace in the sorrows of life one must consistently be able to elevate thoughts and hope to a higher level.

Upon reflection of my own life I thought nothing could be worse than my own child suffering a birth defect and surgery as a small infant . Along the path tragedy has increased, side by side, with intensity I never knew I could manage.

Each circumstance laying another brick upon the foundation I perceive as my own. Each injury to my spirit coming with the assured knowledge now, that with wisdom and faith anything can be resolved. I can forge a head as a human soul and survive the most dire of circumstances.

The truth of it all is grounded in the fact that no matter what happens we have a choice in the final thoughts and position we take.

There are three steps to manage and survive this life. The first is acceptance that circumstances will happen and often times we have absolutely no control over what happens. The second is whether we will elevate or descend in our minds. It is always a choice. The third is to keep hope alive and find the joy that is still all around us.

Don’t let unhappy people steal your joy. Bless them, feel empathy for their pain, help them if possible, or move quickly to another place. Surround yourself with positive and loving people . Like a magnet you will all draw those positive feelings from one to another, and another.

We have only this moment. Use it wisely.
Enjoy these flowers – they are for you!

“The clean energy scam.”

April 5, 2008

I only COPY material that I believe is important enough to post. Last time I did this I did not name the source. This time I know to do so, and the selected paragraphs come from Time Magazine.

“ Hyped as an eco-friendly fuel, ethanol increases global warming, destroys forests and inflates food prices.”

“Worldwide investment in biofuels rose from $5 billion tin 1995 to $38 billion in 2005 and is expected to top $100 billion by 2010.”

“But several new studies show the biofuel boom is doing exactly the opposite of what its proponents intended: it’s dramatically accelerating global warming, imperiling the planet in the name of saving it.”

“Meanwhile, by diverting grain and oilseed crops from dinner plates to fuel tanks, biofuels are jacking up world food prices and endangering the hungry.”

“Deforestation accounts for 20% of all current carbon emissions. So unless the world can eliminate emissions from ALL other sources-cars, power plants, factories, even flatulent cows – it needs to reduce deforestation or risk an environmental catastrophe.”

….”But the world is still going to be fighting an uphill battle until it realizes that right now, biofuels aren’t part of the solution at all. They’re part of the problem.”

10 years ago when I first saw it, the circle was much smaller and closer to the sun-looked like a ring around the sun filled with smog. Today I happened to look and the ring is MUCH MUCH bigger than it was. I did
a photo merge.

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEA what causes this. I do not remember EVER seeing it before about 10 years ago-and I am a gazer at the sky….

Please share with me if you know / or even if you think you know!


Verbatim – Unexplained Phenomen

November 11, 2007

Normally I don’t copy material, but I found a very small article on the back page of the paper and I found it absolutely incredible – what do you think?

“A weird glow is visible in the night sky right now, and astronomers don’t know what to make of it. It’s an obscure and very faint comet that suddenly blazed into astonishing brilliance and is growing larger but dimmer-and while it’s still visible all night long, astronomers are puzzling over the unexpected outburst.”
“It’s really bizarre, said Joseph Miller, a University of California at Santa Cruz astronomer and former director of the Lick Observatory atop Mount Hamilton, near San Jose.”
(NOW HERE IS THE AMAZING PART TO ME) “That thing started out only a few miles in diameter, and suddenly it expanded at a thousand miles an hour until it was as big as the Earth within only a couple of days.” With a decent pair of binoculars-or even with unaided eyes-anyone can see the comet right now as a tiny, fuzzy, white object in the northern sky- wherever fog
doesn’t obscure the sight. It lies just inside the constellation Perseus, below the more familiar constellation Cassiopeia and due east of Polaris, the North Star. It’s called Comet 17P/Holmes and was discovered in 1892 by the British astronomer Edwin Holmes, who spotted it as it appeared to explode in what Holmes thought was an outbust of gas.”

Pretty interesting, eh? Any thoughts?

Telescope Budget problems

October 13, 2007

In Puerto Rico there is, suspended by steel cables and strung from 300 ft. towers, an array of antenna hangs above an aluminum bowl 1,00 feet in diameter that gazes into space. This is the largest and most sensitive radio telescope on earth.

It has an extraordinary history and one of the missions is to search for signs of intelligent life. It has made discoveries for decades.

IT IS THE ONLY FACILITY ON THE PLANET ABLE TO TRACK ASTEROIDS WITH ENOUGH PRECISION TO TELL WHICH ONES MIGHT PLOW INTO EARTH! It could save perhaps millions of lives. Yet, it may close down for a lack of “a few million” dollars – a pittance these days. This is insane.

The National Science Foundation has funded the dish, but told folks at Cornell University (who operate the facility), that if it cannot find outside sources in the next three years, it may need to close. It’s budget has been cut to free up money for new adventures. What the heck is the matter with those who fund the telescope!

Astronomers say it’s all back to politics, and not really a lack of good science. The cash crunch comes from a senior review last November….Come on – for any of you with money or clout, this is a great project to dedicate a “few” of your bucks to perhaps save the world.

Maybe the $12 million dollar gift the “queen of mean” left her dog should be donated! Surely with billions being wasted on war and throw away by political candidates to get elected, something can be done. All I can do is pass on what I know about it as I am not one of those with money to free up to help.

Please pass this information forward and perhaps something can be done via the posting of blogs! Thanks and have a beautiful day!
