A VALENTINE FOR YOU

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

May all our days be full of contentment with JOY!

When things do not turn out as expected ~ CHOOSE JOY by being GRATEFUL and looking for ways to make the best of the situation instead of focusing what you did not get or do not have. BE THANKFUL~ count your blessings and SING! I thought I was going to see a special friend tonight but that did not work out so I had an opportunity to adjust my thinking in order to not be discouraged. I chose to be GRATEFUL & do something different ~ LIKE ENJOY THE DAY ANYWAY & WRITE YOU A VALENTINE!!!

 

Holidays can be a highlight or a dark “night,” so to speak,

depending on your attitude and perspective, especially if you live alone or do not have a significant other in your life. For years now I have been alone but because of my faith & close relationship with GOD the Father, I have never really felt “alone.”

I have learned to go where I am celebrated not where I am tolerated and had to really decide what my CORE VALUES are should I choose to get in another relationship.

Valentine’s Day is marketed everywhere for weeks & it can be inspiring or depressing. I have always enjoyed making each day special and it is fun when there is a theme especially one for sharing & showing your love. Instead of focusing just on romance how about focusing on the reminder just to show more love & express it those most significant in your life.

Be mindful of what input is doing to your mind & attitude.

The media would like to “sell us happiness” or make us long for something or someone

we do not have.

Expectations can be so damaging.

This week I had the gift of being alone for days at the ocean to write & create & catch up on just some needed reflection and re:creation alone with my creator. I had the opportunity to be in a cabin by the beach with no car & yet really wanted to get Valentine’s made for my children, grandchildren & the special friends I have in my life.

I got to be extra creative by seeing what I had with me & the few basic things in the cabin.

What fun I have been having and have been delighted by the many ways the CREATOR has been deLIGHTing me for Valentine’s week! The myriad of birds visiting daily and the spring flowers coming up early along with songs on the radio or verses from the Bible have me constantly GIVING THANKS while the sun has been playing pick-a-boo between sunrise & the most beautiful sunsets!

Psalm 100 says we should enter God’s courts with thanksgiving & praise and years ago I decided to purpose to stay in God’s court by practicing GRATITUDE ~ NO MATTER WHAT.

WHAT A WONDERFUL HABIT and SECRET it has been for me. I am able to choose JOY & PEACE that keep me very present and not miss the BLESSING of each moment & person.

SO ~ my BEST gift to YOU , dear heart,

is to share my “secrets of JOY” and say a prayer & sing it “over you” that you would choose to STOP and take a DEEP BREATH of GRATITUDE to YOUR CREATOR and send you

some of my extra JOY & PEACE that overflows from God’s THRONE OF GRACE!

lovingly,

with a song in my heart & on my lips

JOY to the WORLD ~ the LORD HAS COME !

Let earth Receive HER KING~

LET EVERY HEART ~  PREPARE A ROOM….and HEAVEN & NATURE WILL SING!

HEAVEN & NATURE DOES SING

AND SO DO I  ~ JOIN ME!!!

HA HA HALLELUIA

Snail Mail for Valentine’s DAY

photo 1 copyGreetings!

Anyone else write “old~fashioned” notes and mail them by Post anymore?

I CHERISH the notes I got from my parents & friends through the years & still

LOVE a letter or card in the mail today.

THINK ABOUT IT…the WRITTEN WORD IS SO POWERFUL when you can HOLD

it in your hand & re~read it and really meditate on the enCOURAGEment that

a letter can bring.

Emails are just not the same for me and I think if people are honest they would agree.

I DO APPRECIATE MODERN technology ~ BUT IT TAKES EFFORT NOT TO BE CONTROLLED BY ELECTRONIC GADGETRY. THE COMPUTER should be considered a DANGEROUS POWER TOOL to be used WITH CAUTION and with GREAT CARE so that we are not hurt & controlled by these “time-saving devices.”

Romans 12:2 says we should not be changed into what the world’s ways are but have our minds changed by re~newing our minds with God’s ways.

Live a life of giving love in many ways and it will return to you someday more than you can imagine.

TIME WELL SPENT IS LETTERS SENT TO YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS when you can.

TRY IT ~ (again!) and I think it will bring JOY & HEALTH TO YOUR SOUL and someone else’s too! AT LEAST FOR VALENTINES DAY?

BUT ANY time is a good time for Valentine MAIL.

Send LOVE daily and watch it GROW & MULTIPLY…

BE CREATIVE…

lovingly

Apple anyone?

Have you had your apple today?

If ” an apple a day keeps the doctor away” what does more than one apple a day do?

I asked this question for fun over the last year and got some very fun & funny answers but the one I liked best was from a teen who said, ” it makes you a doctor!”.

Well , I loved that answer because I think we should ALL be our own BEST doctor & study health the Hippocrates way: ” Let your FOOD be your medicine and FIRST DO NO HARM!”

Look at your Dr. and people you take “health” advice from and make sure they are healthy

and RUN if they are not! Prevention IS STILL THE BEST CURE EVER.

An ounce of prevention is not just worth a pound of cure anymore

IT IS WORTH A TON OF CURE!

I have been at too many death beds because of ignorance & false information.

I also believe that the churches are sadly some full of some of the sickest people because most do not take seriously the BIBLE THEY CLAIM to live by.

“DO YOU NOT KNOW THAT YOUR BODY IS THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
THAT IS IN YOU?…therefore HONOR GOD WITH YOUR BODY…I Corinthians 6:19-20

YES EVERYTHING is allowed but not everything is BENEFICIAL.

Only 5% of people that claim to be christians have even read the GOOD BOOK which has all the answers we need for life & godliness and even without the Bible GOD SPEAKS IF WE WILL ONLY ASK & LISTEN!

I just finished 3 days of an APPLE FAST  but it was so pleasurable that I quickly called it my Apple FEAST.

Look it up online and see the testimonials and amazing stories.

Here is a great short video ( > 5 mins) to give you an idea of what I am talking about

 

u tube about apple fast

Watch a few to get a sampling of what I am talking about & use your “best judgement”

knowing that YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU

Starting with the words & ideas you ” eat” and the FOOD choices you make!

A GOOD WORD & WISDOM is like APPLES OF GOLD in SETTINGS OF SILVER!

How thankful I am for all the advice & example of my dear & healthy daddy & the other

mentors in my life like Paul Bragg’s books & Max Gerson.

BE WELL and JOIN THE PARTY OF GOOD HEALTH with me!

 

HOW GOOD CAN U FEEL ?HOW GOOD CAN YOU FEEL?

JESUS CAME TO BRING ABUNDANT LIFE HERE & NOW & for ETERNITY

John 17:3 Eternity starts now by knowing Christ & living in HIS JOY & PEACE!

Let’s CELEBRATE LIFE …..TOGETHER!

L’Cheim!

♥APPLE EVERYONE!♥
