How to Start a Fine Day

May 26, 2017

It’s easy.  Just pray!

“Good morning sweet Lord. You let me be a living soul just another day! Thank you.”
“I will try to be loving, forgiving and kind. I will smile, which will open my heart.”
“I will endeavor not to be judgmental, yet keep the laws you require.
You give me all the tools I need to keep my body healthy, and
My heart seeking your higher ways.”

“Forgive me, my Lord, for lost days, weakness and poor choices.
For excuses I made to enable me to walk the tight rope
between heaven and hell…Still your forgive me, most simply, because I believe in your Son.”

“I am excited now to see how I can make you glad you love me today .
I want you to be at ease with with your choice to make me your child.
With your loving rules and guidelines fresh in my mind, I will take a breath now,
And leave the world yesterday behind.””

Though I cannot comprehend the vastness and forever or you,
I am made in your image, and I know, the Spirit will help me get through.
Two requests I ask from deep within, forgive me not knowing it all, and not fully being able to comprehend the complexity of you and your Son.”

“I do read your Book, and study the Word. Somethings are easy,
and others still go beyond the ability of me to fully grasp the truths of this Book.”
“I will not give up, I will not give in – I will continue to seek your charity
(another word for love) – I will drop to my knees in gratitude, and raise my arms above, in praise.”

“Humbly I ask for those I love to open their eyes
For those that have a heart for you to quit listening to “their” lies.
Your children abound, even those who are yet to discover the peace and the life you offer to all.”

“Please kindly nudge them, before the great fall.
Humbly I thank thee, humbly I arise.
With the ultimate sacrifice of your precious Son in my mind,
with tears in my eyes – I now stand tall.”

“With your Spirit to guide me, and your power all around me – My heart implodes with fullness.
The place you give us all, reserved just for you and your Son – is my true heart. I have already won! I will smile. I will love. I will bounce with the true joy of YOU!
I will pass it forward, that is just what I will do.”

“I love you sweet Lord. I think of you all the time throughout the day. I will hold my tongue, love hard, and be on my way.!

“Amen. (So be it).”

Did you know?

November 17, 2014

obama thinks he is king of the USA, maybe even the world.  He has reiterated he will use executive order regarding illegal immigrants.    Let me say that specific word again – ILLEGAL.  It wouldn’t be so bad, but what about those folks who spent time and money to become LEGAL citizens.  What a slap in the face to them.  Aside from the fact the first thing he will be doing is showing them they are rewarded for breaking the law.

I want to be fair about this and will expound on illegals in California – but California has a very different scenario than other states do.  We have several million (probably more than that) illegals here.  I will grant you MANY OF THEM are legitimate family members and work hard harvesting and keeping the fields of fruits and vegetables in the central valley.

They are not my main concern – but don’t forget they are still breaking the law.

The concern is with the gangs and cartels that are coming in substantial numbers into the USA.  Two of the most violent gangs on the planet were based in California in the beginning.  Now members of the gangs have been placed all over the United States.

I don’t have the specific statistics on this, but I know they are responsible (along with notorious Mexican criminals) for thousands of rapes, murders, theft, and other crimes of violence.

Even here in Northern California cartels have been planting illegal pot fields with thousands of plants.  Anyone going into the wilderness has to be careful as the fields are guarded.

I want to know when we elected a person to be king and dictator of the USA.  I don’t remember doing that.

Here are a couple of tidbits for you.  Did you know it costs six billion dollars to provide six astronauts with water for one year?  If you don’t believe me, check you it out.

Also the king just volunteered three billion dollars to help the “global cause” – it will be placed in a green climate fund.  The money will help developing nations.  Did you authorize these billions of dollars he is putting us in debt – or vote to do these things while our citizens are struggling to survive, and finding police forces and fire departments thinning down because of lack of funding?

I find it interesting that gays and lesbians are only one percent of the population of the USA, and yet they have managed by being the loudest voice, to even have the Supreme Court overturn state decisions – so marriage will be legal for them.  What happened to the MANY, MANY states that the citizens absolutely voted this down – even multiple elections voted against marriage except between a man and a woman?  Oh, I forgot.

The peasants do not have a voice any more, and if you think it’s not true – think again.

Lastly today (and I am not depressed – only disgusted with the king and the money men who control everything) – do not believe the economy is so much better.  Where is a list of these million jobs that were created?  I have never once seen a list.  Also, just because people are not signing up for unemployment does not mean we are better off.  Many have ran their unemployment into the ground, and many have just been out of the work force too long to get back in it…

Did you know Hewlett-Packard is reducing its work force by 55,000 jobs?  Also CNN, TBS, and TNT are slashing their work force by 10%.

As of last year many retail chain stores stopped offering insurance to workers who work thirty hours or less.  Walmart is one of the last to eliminate about 30,000 part time workers insurance plans.

Hmm that’s interesting.  Should help the obama government controlled insurance plan.

Don’t you think it’s lovely that young people are forced to buy insurance to help pay for those who are the “takers” in the society?

My oh my, I am glad I got these facts on paper and out of my system.  I guess we really owe a debt of gratitude to our king and the controlling folks for these things.  FYI, I will not give up or give in.

Sept. 11 – Music to honor firemen, policemen, and all those who lost their lives on that day…

September 11, 2014

And to honor all our military who have paid the ultimate price protecting citizens- either with the critical loss of body and/or mind quality, and those who have given their lives in the service of all of us in the United States of America.  God bless them, and God bless us all.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is what I think today

July 20, 2014

This post is my stance on what is happening in our society in the USA.

If I sound, in length here, wild and ranting a bit, I very well may be. I am fairly- no totally disgusted with so many things I am not sure where to start.

If you watch ANY news you will find the media pitting one country against the other. The horror of those killed on one side – the horrific splay of missiles being shot at the other.

Give sympathy to both and encourage then instill the hated and anger with each other.

Who shot the passenger airline down? Biden jumped the gun and with his hollow and unintelligent mumblings saying Russia blew the plane out of the sky. The “U.S.” concluded this. No, no, no…. those in “charge”, our rich and poorly representing government officials concluded this and the media assertively (but with obvious bowing to them) headlined it.

Russia against Ukraine – the United States against Russia. Sorrow, discontent, anger and then hatred.

Strange how hated is building for Russia since it gave Snowden asylum.

What happened to the Marine who accidentally went into Mexico? Where is the traitor Obama traded 5 terrorists for now?

Wow. One Marine accidentally goes into Mexico and is jailed?

62,000 children (and many mothers) come across our borders and our beloved obama makes sure he gets (I figured this out from the amounts obama requested) $25,000. per child to house and feed.

Problem with that is these children and mothers are being placed all over the country and they will be untraceable, melding into the 11 million illegal Mexicans already here.

Children are often are brought here by criminal enterprises that smuggle them through Mexico and into the United States. When they get across the border, the children often seek out American border guards. They know the Americans will help them and send to a facility with food and other services.

However, that being said, it is amazing with the violence in Mexico and the Cartel and terrorist criminals, that the children arrived safely – no kidnappings, no beheadings, no murders, rapes or forced child labor. Thank God.

Of course no one wants a child hurt ever, but still – how they got here is a wonder! Many have scabies and lice, and many have not had MMRV vaccines, thus possibly spreading disease ( if they enroll in school or are around children) to the children whose families questioned vaccinating their children.

Welcome to NLA (North Latin America), or MexiAmerica where Christians and white people are bad. I wonder how many of the south American mothers entering are pregnant? How many will land in rich households to be maids and gardeners for government officials and CEO’s of companies.

Some are being housed in L.A. and homeless are protesting because they are citizens and no one is providing housing for them. There are thousands on the streets.

It would be a good idea too, as a special amount of water in this drought, is being saved to wash urine and fecal matter from the homeless off of the sidewalks.

obama is a racist. He denies his white all together. If you wonder why I don’t capitalize obama, it is my way of showing disrespect.

Now to the latest fad-smoking the HOOKAH- 1 hour’s worth is comparable to smoking 200 cigarettes! Yuk. Slow suicide.

Much is made of cyber-bullying. I am sorry deaths have been reported because of this phenomenon. To me this says children and teens are spending way too much time on line, and on their phones. Duh!

Bullying in schools has gone on as long as I can remember – and I have a great memory and a few decades to have learned one or two things. Bullying is cruel. Where there are growing young minds, there will always be the mean ones! They are probably the ones who turn into bad adults. But my generation handled bullying in person, with people when it happened. There are some terrible things about technology, along side with the good, and I wish it weren’t that way, but it is.

Also the illusion that on line a child can have hundreds of friends is dangerous and a flawed misnomer. Much of what is on line, in magazines, and presented to us is simply lies promoting SALES! Also, of course, racism, anger, judgments, smoking, alcohol use,jealousy, and violence are condoned and promoted through movies. Holly weird loves to pass its messages on to the public.

Fact. Did you know only three percent of the population is actually gay or lesbian? Did you also know many state courts have turned the decision the people voted on (several more votes than one), to keep marriage sanctioned only between men and women, to accommodate the voice of the gay and lesbian community? The squeaky wheel gets the grease.

We live in a toxic, desensitized, technology-addicting environment. Some of the top shows are the sleaziest, most violent, depraved, and self-deprecating pieces of work ever presented to the public. Big brother is controlling the minds of all ages – has been doing so for years.

I know love and Spirit and God are still alive and well. I know that the USA has millions and millions of citizens that are still rooted in moral principles, and want peace between citizens and other countries.

I just wish everyone around the world would not “clump” the “people of the USA” with the government, politics and the media. That is the biggest lie of all. I know the heart of the people has hope and cares about other real citizens of this country and other countries I would love to see the “people” of all countries be represented fairly instead of by the corrupt behavior and greed of so few in charge.

There will be a time.

Forgive me if there are errors. I broke my wrist a week ago, had surgery to put in plate and screws day before yesterday, and I am typing with my right hand. (I am left-handed.)

Stay strong. Keep your line of demarcation for your principles and life’s direction visible and guarded. God bless us all!

True Story!

October 1, 2013

I tried being miserable.

It SUCKED.

So I gave it up!

Today is very busy but I have two important posts to share.  I will try to get back later, but if not, tomorrow for sure!  CREATE a beautiful day for yourself and those in the circle of your life.  I do really care.

Edith / Gay Rights / Supreme Court

June 28, 2013

Edith Windsor you have successfully taken away the rights of millions of voters, along with the fat cats who hold life-long positions as Supreme Court judges.

As of two days ago, my country gave unelected officials the right to overturn the will, and the vote of the people.

California voted two times, and two times the state’s people voted against recognizing gay marriage. Thirty -three states still refuse to recognize marriage as anything except the union between man and woman.

I don’t care what “choice” people make for sexual orientation, or life partners. Just because I hold to my own beliefs doesn’t mean I am anyone’s judge. I respect each person’s right to choose.

That isn’t the point of this post! Today big brother won a victory that will be one of the bigger steps in the downfall of this great country.

I do care about my VOTE meaning something. As far as I am concerned now – we are all on our own. It is horrifying to my that millions and millions of citizens votes mean nothing.

God help us.

Important-Urgent-Contagious-Worldwide

January 30, 2013

This is not to make you panic but to KNOW what to do to protect you and your family; particularly small children and the elderly.

NOROVIRUS is EXTREMELY CONTAGIOUS and has no cure except TIME!  This is a new strain, unseen before.

The best way to avoid the norovirus is to wash your hands often using soap and water.  Alcohol-based hand cleansers are not effective against this virus.”

Noroviruses are the leading cause of foodborne disease outbreaks worldwide, and may soon eclipse rotaviruses as the most common cause of severe pediatric

 

Norovirus is a highly contagious viral illness that thrives in colder weather. Sometimes called the stomach flu, it begins suddenly and usually causes stomach cramps and nausea in addition to vomiting and diarrhea. Some people may also experience low-grade fever, chills, headache, body aches and fatigue.

The vomiting can be projectile, and the diarrhea severe, so please remember the virus stays alive for a long period of time – even after normal cleaning.

It can be on an elevator button, a railing on an elevator, salt and pepper shakers in a restaurant…even on dishes that have been watched by a thorough “normal cleaning”.

Most people recover quickly, but serious complications can occur, including death.

Small children and the elderly are highest at risk groups.  Spread the word.  Make sure nursery schools and school officials are aware of these facts.

Those infected with norovirus are contagious from the moment they begin to feel sick until as long as two weeks after recovery.

There is no vaccine to prevent norovirus infection, and there is no drug to treat it; antibiotics are ineffective.

THESE ARE THE best ways to reduce the risk of getting norovirus:

Practice good hand hygiene. Wash your hands with soap and water, especially after using the bathroom and changing diapers.  Teach your children – and monitor them – to wash with soap and water for a full thirty seconds (the length of many short children’s songs).  Tell them to wash heartily until they finish singing the song!

Clean and disinfect contaminated surfaces. After throwing up or having diarrhea, immediately clean surfaces by using bleach-based household cleaner as directed on the product label or a diluted bleach solution (5-25 tablespoons of household bleach per gallon of water). Never use undiluted bleach, but remember bleach is dangerous for children so use good judgement.

Remove and wash clothing and linens that may be contaminated with vomit or stool. Handle soiled items carefully to avoid spreading the virus. If available, wear rubber, disposable gloves while handling soiled clothing or linens and wash your hands after handling. Items should be washed with detergent at the maximum cycle length and machine dried.

Do not prepare food while infected or while you have symptoms of norovirus.

Anyone with knowledge of an outbreak should report it to their local health department.

Noroviruses are the most common cause of gastroenteritis in the U.S. It is estimated that each year, more than 20 million cases of gastroenteritis are caused by norovirus, but this years virus is a new strain.   That means that 1 in every 15 Americans will become ill from norovirus each year.

Noroviruses can spread quickly from person to person in crowded, closed places such as long-term care facilities, day care centers, schools, hotels, hospitals, family dinners, student housing, restaurants and cruise ships.

Noroviruses are found in the stool and vomit of infected people.

People can become infected by:

Eating food or drinking liquids that are contaminated with norovirus.

Touching surfaces or objects that are contaminated with norovirus, and then placing a hand in the mouth.

Having direct contact with an infected person; for example, by exposure to the virus when caring for or when sharing food, drinks, or eating utensils with an infected person.  This makes teenagers at high risk too because of growing attraction to the opposite sex, groups gathering for football games, parties, etc.  BE CAREFUL!

 

Though most people recover – there have been about eight hundred deaths a year…prior to this new strain.  Pay attention and be well!  Share this information.

Shooting Leaves Twenty Children and Six Adults

December 15, 2012

I just heard about today’s shooting of so many children and adults.  I can think of nothing more horrific than the killing of innocent children. This will affect the lives of the parents, grandparents, siblings, peers, and a list of other bereaved human beings.  This will change hundreds of lives in that small Connecticut town of only ten-thousand people.

It will affect every parent and grandparent regardless location, around the world.  Needless and life-changing moments for so many.

With all my heart and living soul, over my lifetime, I believe that those sweet and innocent souls are with their makers, and the adults, as well.If you’ve ever been in an accident you will find that the “moment” of the accident is all but erased from your memory.  I pray that for all these souls that moment was the same, and that now they are at rest with no pain and no anguish.

This is NOT a political act.  Please leave the politics of “guns – legal or not” OUT of your conversation for at least a few days.  Your mind should be filled with prayers, and your heart ready to love when you are able.  No one deserved this.  Not one child ever!

I’ve cried and been on my knees praying for their spirits and those who are left to deal with hard days and months, and years, to come.

Please pray and love those near you.  We never expect things like this to happen.  It is one of the saddest days I’ve known.

 

 

Please pray

May 31, 2012
