A New Day

October 15, 2017

I hope you enjoyed my little pity party last night.  I normally “choose” happiness.  I think it was in part because the weekends when Mike is gone are the hardest -particularly Saturday night…go figure!  It was Saturday… Last evening I felt exhausted, my poor little tootsies were hurting, right along with my ankles, and so instead of choosing to get into one of my good books, I made the mistake of watching a movie Mike had recorded…I realized it was not the movie I should have been watching. I find no joy in watching a movie unless it leaves me feeling good.  That is because we have so many terrible things going on around us…for relaxation – I choose something that actually makes me laugh or feel happy.

That is part of the problem (I believe) with young adults and children.  They are “fed” all these TERRIBLE SCENARIOS in movies and on the internet. hollyweird is warping all their minds, right along with the horrible lyrics put into some music.  Unbelievable.  That’s a whole different subject.

Today is a beautiful day.  A day to begin again and have the opportunity to love and live and be grateful for all the small miracles many of us are so fortunate to have in our lives.

Therein I am going to drop to my knee, say a prayer of gratitude, and also pray for all those whose needs are so much right now…those in line of fires, hurricanes, flooding, earthquakes, and basic needs we all require to live.

Have a GOOD day and if you started off with a pity party, as I did yesterday – remember it is okay to be human…but make it a short party and then choose happiness!

As ye think, so shall ye become..”

A quiet disaster.

Is anyone there?

Have I always been the only one to long to see people?

I remember being the hostess. The “stop to rest” on the long road to somewhere else to visit someone else.

Does no one long for my kind disposition and my hilarious outlook on most of life. Does not my happiness and healing light bring anyone to reckon that they “need” to spend time with me?

Except, of course, strangers who cross my path and often say, “You are an angel”, I needed a dose of you”, “You are so wonderful.” I am glad for my life to has made a difference in the lives of some that we just touch hands as we pass. God put me here and there, and I am small in the perspective of God, but touching a heart touches my heart. Sincerely. I hope the Creator knows – I would love to meet Jesus – but when I am anything fine and wonderful, it is because I was created in His image. Imagine!

I have always made the effort and taken the time to nurture and love all those given to me to share life with, and those souls who’s lives are given to me for only a moment in time…

What have I done to feel so unloved? I think it is only me in the moment.

Does time steal not only health and youth, but does it keep dwindling us physically and mentally and within until that sweet day of demise? Why, I do believe it does.

It is all coming to fruition though I think I am still in the best of my mind. If I am honest, I often hear people say (and why wouldn’t you be?) – I may not be in the PRIME of my life, the PRIME of my health in this body, the PRIME of my wits…but TO ME…I AM. Still alive, still vibrant, I still feel beautiful (though I never thought I was really).

I learned today I can make a volcano with soda, vinegar and a large candle…that joy in learning this comes from the joy within – still vibrant and wild and young.

I went to see ROCKS today. “Rocks and gems”. The thing I love about rocks is they can be so terribly ugly outside, and filled with sparkly, lovely, light crystals! They can be spun round and be as smooth as anything you’ve ever felt, and still lovely – filled with light and color.

I keep thinking, “How can anyone think of the billions of rocks, all unique, and not believe in a creator? I just don’t understand. Perhaps that is where the saying comes into light; “Be still, and know that I am God.”

And I did. And I do.

God Morning!

October 6, 2017

It felt good to “speak my peace”. It is still an open venue to voice an opinion, at least for the time being.
As I sit here feeling the blessed cooler air and hearing the soft ring of chimes that move with the wind, I want to say, “God Morning”…I want it to be a God filled morning and day.
In writing I released what I know to be a mutual opinion, standing with many millions of people who have little voice in what is happening today. We are the peasants. I say that with no sorrow or anger, it is just the way it is – and I am a happy one! Happy beyond belief the majority of my life. It is a blessing to still be able to recognize the beauty of the earth we live upon, and the magnificence of the stars in the sky above.
I am an American. I love the essence of America, the lands, the individual peoples who live in the different areas, and the diversity of our people. The thing I feel about America that is different than any other country in the world is that for all my life, I have seen, when time is of the essence, ALL AMERICANS JOIN HANDS together, pray together, and work together for the good of America! There has been no division or devise plans when diligence and teamwork are needed to keep America free, and its people melding together for strength, healing and peace.
It has been that way ALL my life, and I want it to remain the same.
The only thing that has changed is the media driven panic and pressing onto any story that will ultimately make money! If we were NOT infringed upon by the madness of the media, we wouldwe would NOT come unhinged when faces of the FEW discontent citizens make a statement, albeit at the wrong time and place, whilst there are millions upon millions who are working side by side, living side by side, and trying to make amends for those mistakes ALL human beings make at one time or another.

Anger begets anger, violence begets violence, and love and peace…..begets love and peace.

If people want to change things then it will begin in the individual core of each person’s spirit.
DO NOT watch or read or listen to the inflammatory things the media presents each moment of the day. I challenge you to go just four days (and nights) without paying attention to the rhetoric presented us that creates discontent, worry, negativity or anger from within us.

If you pray, drop to your knee and humbly ask our Great Spirit (the proper name, if you read the Bible, is Jehovah) – to let the Holy Spirit fill us with love and graciousness. Ask for kindness and humility, and live your moments the best you can in the next four days, breathing and moving in love and peace.

I will offer you a “MONEY BACK GUARANTEE” (oh wait, I don’t get paid – haha) – that in these four days, if you meet the challenge, you will find an amazing four days upon you! The only other thing I suggest is that when you feel ANY negative feelings or worry, take a breath and say to yourself, “NOPE. Not going to wreck my peace and happiness….it will all work out some way!” Then exhale the negative thoughts into oblivion and begin again.

People always want to know why I am so happy…..well, beyond teaching stress management and relaxation techniques, I actually use them! God has given us soooooooo many gifts from within if we just use them! Breathing exceptionally good breaths will also create natural pain killers from within. The TRICK is…….like any habit we get into…..you must believe they will work.

Don’t forget – “money back guarantee!” SMILE just because it will make you feel better. Do not worry, if there is any dire emergency, it will find its way to you – don’t look – LIVE! I love you all! My husband asks how I can love people I don’t know? Easy – we are all brothers and sisters and members of the human family. We all cry, bleed, laugh, and some of us even laugh until our gut hurts! Just sayin’……….

(no I didn’t proof, so fire me! Lord I feel silly today!)

America is still a wonderful place to live.

October 5, 2017

I am really irritated. For you football players that “bend” a knee, GO SOMEPLACE ELSE AND TRY TO EARN THE MONEY YOU MAKE IN THE USA! ALSO, IF YOU THINK WE ARE RACIST – GO SOMEPLACE ELSE – BECAUSE every human being on the planet has his or her prejudices! GOODBYE!
This thing has got me going…These spoiled athletes, who “protest” to make a difference, aren’t! All they are doing is dividing people and causing conflicts.
I won’t apologize or say, “everyone has a right to their opinion! Those who have exposure and liberal media behind them, have more than the rights of the individual peasants who really own and reside and pay taxes and live and honor and love America!!!
I am sick of people making pathetic excuses to be weak and not stand up for what they believe. Humans ALL OVER THE WORLD would give everything they own to have the opportunity afforded them in the USA…prejudice? I am white, a woman, my son says I am attractive, and I lived in a moderately financed home when I was small. My mom and dad paid $5,000. for their home…therefore I am BLAMED for the racial prejudice and horrible things going on today. Neither here nor there. I am not to blame! I had no choice how I was born, how I look, my brains, my position in life, the whole ball of wax- draw of the cards!
These athletes, who are probably too young and too rich to remember World War II or even the Koran War or Vietnam, do not get it! PROTEST you MF’ers (Malfunctioning , Flawed humans) – and stay BLIND! If you want to drop on your knee, you had better be doing it in honor of the greatest Spirit of all, who created us!
FOR ME, to stand with hand on heart during the National Anthem means I honor all those who have suffered and died, and those who have lived with horrible disabilities…to keep us free! I honor their sacrifices and the sacrifices their families made, and still make! Our National Anthem is a symbol of our country, and the flag- another symbol of this great country we live in…of the blood shed to keep us free!
Athletes kneeling to protest brutality and inequality? The only thing they do is cause more difficulty, and more separating of people. Look up TRUE facts and you will find more people of color KILL their own than police! Yes the brutality to blacks by police officers can be harsh, but it is laid upon suspects and criminals by officers that are black too! AND, oftentimes the brutality BEGINS with those suspects and criminals fighting the police first! WHAT WOULD YOU DO??
Oprah is one of the richest women in the world, a man who is proud to be black (though that is each person’s opinion) was president, black athletes are multi-millionaires, black actors are millionaires – so wherein is all the inequality? Poverty is the culprit, and there are very poor white people in this country too!
AS FAR AS THE CLASPING OF ARMS – my personal opinion, “throw-up, gag, vomit.” Purely BS (Brilliant Strategy ) by, I am sure, managers who encouraged players to show “Unity” even if they don’t drop to their knee. Well, DUH, they have to show unity to keep people buying tickets, and to keep misleading the meaning of what their are doing.
SHOW UNITY TO YOUR PROVIDERS:
Drop to your knee to praise God! People are born with physical attributes, so don’t take too much credit for natural skills your were born with-be grateful.
Unify as citizens of the greatest country in the world by standing with your hand on your heart facing the flag “ White signifies purity and innocence. Red, hardiness & valour, and Blue… signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice.”. The stars represent the “union” of the states. Added to the description in 1977: “The star is a symbol of the heavens and the divine goal to which man has aspired from time immemorial, and the stripe symbolic of the rays of light emanating from the sun.”….
Sing our National Anthem! “ An anthem is “A patriotic musical composition that evokes and eulogizes the history, traditions, and struggles of its people, recognized either by a nation’s government as the official national song, or by convention through use by the people.”
I admit it is difficult to sing and the range is beyond me, but at least I will stand with my hand over my heart and try!

Korea, the President, football and Prayer.

October 3, 2017

MY PERSONAL OPINION:
I think, NO MATTER how you voted, we should try to be open to support OUR president. If I had been a multimillionaire with a beautiful wife and children – the last thing I would want to do is take on on the headaches and trauma’s some presidents are forced to face. He can always be voted out, and thus far, his sending help to Texas, Florida and now Puerto Rico has been commendable.
I have watched, in my lifetime, N. Korea cause MANY problems prior to this. He did not cause the current problems. I do think he should limit his tweets, but it is his way of trying to reach out to people and state his thoughts. Just because he is president doesn’t mean he doesn’t have free speech. (He should refrain from swearing, I think.) I do love the way he doesn’t pussy foot around and apologize for America. Everyone knows you must stand up to a bull or he will walk all over you!
I agree with his stance on honoring the flag, and National Anthem – which represents all those men and women who have been wounded and died to keep our nation free. As a woman I have enjoyed football, but this was NOT about race. I love my freedom. Hence, I will not honor those who besmear the flag or anthem, and disgrace those who have given so much.
I will live without big time football viewing on television or internet, or in person. These multi-million spoiled children need to know when to protest. If they choose NOT to honor America in these ways, that is their right, but stay in the locker rooms as a sign of respect. If you don’t love AMERICA….(she has made you wealthy), LEAVE!
By the way, “the poor will always be with us”. We are born in bodies we do not choose, and in towns and financial conditions we have no choice about either. Racism was NOT born in the USA. It was born in another place, and grew because someone (of color)- chose money over anything else!
Obama was not my favorite president. It wasn’t because he was black, but because during his time I saw racism bloom again, and disdain for our men in blue grow exponentially. Use the word “decisive”, a word the media has sat squarely on Trump, and you will be just following those who’s tongues hang out on every word that is printed or spoken by them. obama was decisive. “Keep your doctor, keep a plan you like…”
With all the talk of “racism” I still see people of color that are thriving in the USA; I still see the murder rate of blacks murdering blacks way above white murdering blacks. Read everything you can get your hands on if you are interested in “finding” the truth. “The truth will set you free……”
I know Americans are relentless in “giving” to causes that help other humans in need. God bless us one and all for doing what we can. It doesn’t matter if you are grocery shopping, or on line or television, peasants are plagued by requests for CASH. May I say again, ANY of these VERY VERY rich sob’s who have millions upon millions, and billions, could all pitch in and help those in need and they would still be rich….and the matters would be resolved-all around the world could be helped. Come on oprah, bill gates, ANY movie talent, congress members, members of the United Nations, george soros (HAHA), george clooney, comedians, football players, and SO SO MANY MORE!
It has been pointed out to me that many “stars” have given. But I did my homework and for these million and billionaires, their gifts amount to WAY LESS than 10% of their worth. To me that is just paying for advertising for each of them! However, I cannot be the judge of others.
It won’t happen. They may donate time to raise money. They may donate a pittance (and to peasants it seems a lot), when actually it is cheap advertising….alas, we can pray, and volunteer, and do what we can…and we will, for our Spirits are rich.
Last thought for the day….”Football players who feel they must protest – please just leave the space until the “honors” are done. Find another way to protest other than dropping to the knee!
Do not drop to the knee as a show of disrespect, or in a misplaced way of showing displeasure for something that wasn’t even at the forefront of the conversation. Get over yourselves!
I reserve dropping to the knee to humbly pray and show my respect to the Greatest Spirit of All.
(addendum: keep in mind when I do not capitalize names it is because that is my way of showing disrespect.)

Just curious

How are you?

Good Morning!

August 22, 2017

GOOD MORNING! Good morning my brothers and sisters. To be writing and to be reading means we are alive and I say thank you Great Spirit, Creator beyond our understanding and comprehension……thank you! Counselor who never tires of hearing my prayers, and never leaves me.

You have given us heart and the ability to smile. You have given human beings the instant spark to be strong and open to helping others when the need is great.

You have given us strength of mind and body when tragedy comes upon us, to rise and to move onward and upward.

You are the song in my heart and the backbone in this tenacious and weary body. You have given me the power to move beyond my own ability and the drive to go on…

The mysteries of the skies and beauty of the wispy clouds that run across the warm of the sun, but for a moment, are wonders to behold.

You have given us an appetite to learn more about everything we see and touch.
Often I have given less than I was able because sometimes I am only human, and forget that I have you within me, to brighten my outlook and stretch beyond my limits.

You have given me faith. From whence it comes I know not, but like the ocean breeze it cools and wets my face awakening this beating heart to begin again.

With the light of the day my mind begins to challenge me to get up and move and make this fine instrument once again, regardless of the pressing in of life, open my arms and lift them to praise you for so many miracles that happen each moment, many of which we simply do not take the time or energy to recognize.

Like an old friend, I trust you to elevate my thoughts, strength my mind, bring peace and happiness from within and let it burst into fruition to add to life for me and those in my circle of life.

Thank you oh Great Spirit of forgiveness, patience, and love. Thank you for knowing I cannot understand it all. For that which does not come to me clearly – please forgive me. I will try again to make you happy in my creation, after all is said and done.

I was given so much, and all you ask is that I have faith and love.

My blessed Creator, you are the grandest of all, and yet I am free to address you and love you. Mysterious and amazing.

Lovingly, your humble servant,
Marsha

Subtle Overthrow in Progress?

August 15, 2017

“There came an alien race to earth, intend on conquering all, and the name of the alien race was is alcohol.”

“Aliens are slowly taking over the entire planet by disguising themselves as alcohol.”

“Soon we will all  be so addicted and they will  throw us aside, and turn into the real aliens! They will have the earth to themselves, and without a fight!”

“There may be temporary upheavals but soon all will succumb to the subtle power of many of  them who are still in disguise.”

“The things that happen during a bout with aliens assist them in their ascent – things they will attest to others in the universe —they murdered and raped and cheated, and they knew the risks.  Still they dabbled.”

“They did it to themselves in the final analysis.  They fell to their knees and the gods of the toilet by choice.  No one was forced, only prodded.”

“Still a few lived. They  were unable to survive the stench and view of the aliens true forms.  They died of fright in the black of the night.”

“So have another drink, my friend.  It can’t hurt…………………….

………………………………………or can it?”

 

Pain

August 4, 2017

What happens when the pain is so bad that suddenly you think for a moment “I can’t can’t handle this. The pain is too much!”

Everyone says – “You can handle it – learn to deal with the hand you’ve been dealt. We all have to deal with pain…that’s life!”

Well……..those words are entirely true, but what I say today is “Phewy! Aarrghh! Crappola!
PLEASE don’t preach to the choir! Leave that to God.

We all do have to deal with pain and it sucks. What particularly sucks is that no one else on the planet, even if they have practically the same injury or problem, can understand your pain!
No one can jump right into your shoes, though many really kind and good hearted people (who have possibly dealt with lots of pain in his or her life) may sincerely try. It just isn’t happening.

It is YOUR pain, and yours alone. I can’t even describe the pain that almost left me unable to put any weight on my right ankle this afternoon. It didn’t last a lengthy time, like the pain that has become my constant companion from by back exploding. I guess you could say I am used to that pain. It varies in intensity, but shows up regularly each day, sometime after I put weight on my little frame of bones.

I tell you, God made the human body so strong and resilient that it never ceases to amaze me. During a lifetime I have participated in, or seen an ocean of pain from multiple sources….and yet people have healed, as best is possible with time and a bit of concentrated work.

Of course when you break that rare crystal bowl that sat on the table, even though you fixed it professionally…it will always have a weakness. It may look fine sitting on the table, but perhaps with time someone will put too much weight on it, or be careless handling it, and the bowl could succumb to that one incident of tragedy, then it hit the floor!

The human body is much stronger than the bowl. When I was in my twenties it seemed as if I challenged the endurance and healing power of the body, mind and spirit – simultaneously! I think that is still known as “partying”. Thank you God for your grace and in your undeserved mercy… I survived “myself”!

I sit down to write just a paragraph or two and it always winds up to be something I could just keep doing on. I love to write – I actually love to share life in this way….experiences I’ve had, thoughts I have, experiences of others, and those moments that make life worth “going beyond the pain!….back to the point of this post.

What was the point? Something about pain………hahahaha! The number one way to handle pain is DIVERSON, and that is exactly what I did! It works! (I really hope you don’t have too much pain to handle. I know it sucks. But it is “do-able”.). I send love and healing vibrations- and I am not just saying that! Ask my husband. He says “How can you care about people your don’t even know?” Well, that is easy! I am human, aren’t you? We are all REALLY connected in that way. Besides, Jesus said to love one another, and I love Jesus! Makes sense, eh?

Hug yourself. I just hugged myself and I needed it! You deserve a good hug!

This is a post that hasn’t been checked for errors and is 100% spontaneous. I hope it was worthy of a read. At least it was free!
