love grand mother always

Blessings on all the mothers & grand mothers today & every day!

My dear mom always said mother’s day is every day and said we should treat our mothers accordingly! Now that my mom has been dead for 20 years, I savor her words & hear myself repeating the little quotes & stories I used to hear her share with me & others.

I remember her beautiful loving blue eyes and see them often in the people I greet & I even get to hear her voice on occasion when I meet someone with the same German dialect and what a treat that is, as we converse in my Mother Tongue.

I remember how she loved beauty & flowers & there was always a flower waiting on my nightstand growing up and pictures she had painted & quilts with hand created stitches of love.

I have a love for beauty & flowers thanks to my dear mother who gave me wealth in ways that money can not buy. She read me stories & sang songs & held my hand on our long walks to the store. She, as well as my dad, greeted everyone with a cheery hello or a wave. How grateful I am for their example in many areas and especially of how to treat strangers and love all people.

I choose to pay tribute to my mother for the goodness & beauty that she taught me~

though she & I & all mother’s have our faults ~ she was the BEST MOTHER for me &

I honor her this day with sharing her photo of me above at 8 days old almost 55 years ago

and the picture with her & I ( 5 months pregnant with my first child over 35 years ago).

How special to be able to cherish these memories through photos.

I remember my mother often talking with tears wishing I could have met her mother and

telling me how kind she was to everyone and brave during WWII in Germany with bombs dropping & how with 6 little girls to raise alone she still made time to help those in need around her.

Never having met my grandmother in Germany I realized that through a few cherished pictures & my mother’s stories of her kindness & sacrifices helping so many people, including many Jews in Germany that she is VERY much alive in my heart as a hero and a legacy to live in & carry forth.

May we leave behind a LEGACY OF LOVE as mothers, fathers & friends to all.

A NURTURING & ENCOURAGING SPIRIT SHOULD LIVE IN ALL OF US NOT JUST MOTHERS!
One of my dearest friends, Lynn has no children of her own and yet has been a mother to so many as a High school teacher to deaf students for decades.

SO BLESSINGS TO ALL THE NURTURING HEARTS TODAY ~ MAKING A DIFFERENCE

“TO THE CHILD IN US ALL”

EAT GOOD WORDS FOR LIFE

YOU ARE what you eat ~ especially YOUR WORDS!

photoWhen we plan a special event or party the menu is a huge part of the planning.

How we think about food tells us a lot about what is important to us.

As important as our meal planning is and should be,

it is more important to think about the

WORDS we EAT all day long.

We do not live by just our “daily bread” but by the words that we eat & the words that
“eat US”.

When we dwell on negative words we have a negative outcome just as deadly or perhaps more deadly than “JUNK FOOD” or ” SPOILED FOOD”.

FOOD poisoning comes in many forms ~ SO PLEASE WATCH YOUR EATS & YOUR WORDS.

May we SPEAK WORDS OF LIFE FOR LIFE~
Reading the Bible is so refreshing & life giving and I am continually surprised that more people do not know the BEST HEALTH SECRETS are found in the BIBLE.

When we ask God to speak to us ~ He will and one of the best ways to understand God’s thoughts & ways is in Nature & the Inspired WORD.

Unfortunately, many religions have used the Bible to control people & take their money & worse.

How sad , that God’s intended Love letter and life coaching guide has been misused & misunderstood & mostly just ignored.

Open the WORDS OF LIFE !~  today & every day and EAT THE BEST WORDS FOR LIFE
& LOVE & TRUE SATISFACTION. FOR it truly is the LOVE STORY OF ALL LOVE STORIES!

READ THE BOOK OF RUTH FOR EXAMPLE.

RUTH is only four short chapters & less than 15 minutes long and it is the BEST love story in the WORLD~ even BETTER than Shakespeare because it IS TRUE. Ruth’s grave is still in Israel in the town of Bethlehem and she was the great grandmother of King David and

is one of the few women listed in the genealogy of Jesus AND THE ONLY WOMAN IN the BIBLE DESCRIBED AS A VIRTUOUS* WOMAN BY NAME !

It is a picture of what GOD wants to do for each one of us. GOD wants to

REDEEM us back into a loving relationship with respect & joy & abundant life.

Just like the whole Bible the Books of Ruth & Esther are Powerful reminders that

GOD looks on the heart and that in the end LOVE & TRUTH WILL PREVAIL.

The BIBLE is a story of a love for each one of us by the CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE wanting

us to be A FAMILY FOR LIFE & LOVE & LIBERTY for all!

Living in Heavenly Peace even here even NOW!

Proverbs 16:24

Also choose your friends wisely & make sure they inspire you to be your BEST YOU

and that you encourage each other with UP WORDS so together we can GROW FOR LIFE!

 

May we be a taste of HEAVEN daily to those we greet & meet ….

starting in the MIRROR !

photo copyLast week I got to visit one of my dearest friends in Portland & we enJOYED

shining the LOVE OF JESUS everywhere we went MOSTLY WITH OUR SMILES & JOY!

I pray the same ABUNDANT LIFE FOR YOU ….

start with good smiles & words & good food to eat !
RAW ! RAW ! RAW !…..Yes do eat lots of RAW food ~ BACK TO EDEN

the garden of good eatin & LOVIN SMILES!

 

A SMILE IS THE SAME IN EVERY LANGUAGE ~

SO SHINE LOVE & LIGHT ~~~

NO MATTER THE WEATHER
ALL DAY & NIGHT!

*Proverbs 31:10-31

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!♥

GOOD THOUGHTS OF YOU

photo copyLet’s MAKE IT A GOOD DAY!

That is what God would say to you and me!

What do you say to yourself & others?
What does your heart say?

Your heart is what REALLY matters for what you THINK ABOUT MOST

IS WHAT YOU WILL BECOME.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT?

WHAT DO You feed your mind first thing in the morning & last thing at night?

THINK ABOUT IT and make proper adjustments if you want a different or more

positive GOOD outcome & GOOD attitude.

HOW about starting with GRATITUDE?

How grateful I am for the many good things in my life.

The ability to CHOOSE MY ATTITUDE each moment.

The gift of LIFE and breath and connections with nature & people.

A healthy body ,rarely dis~eased especially after years of pain & symtoms.

I make GOOD choices for HEALTH & LIFE ! Daily & hourly ~ Most importantly

DWELLING or meditating on GOD’S GOOD THOUGHTS OF ME!

I AM LOVED

MADE BY LOVE

TO GIVE & RECEIVE LOVE

PEACEFULLY!

GRACE’T FULLY

A FRIEND TO ALL

WELL~ LET’S GET OFF THE COMPUTER NOW or as soon as possible

AND GO LIVE A GOOD REAL ABUNDANT LIFE

LOVE PARIS

 ~WITH YOU IN PRAYER ~

~WITH YOU IN PRAYER ~

Last night I happened to be in a community dining hall with many Europeans including a lovely young man from FRANCE and because I love all cultures & know some french we had a lively & delightful conversation. His name is Abracadabra & I LOVED hearing the beautiful french accent & language. Later in the evening he was part of a larger group that I got to spontaneously lead in music &  a moment of prayer for reflection & compassion for the grieving in Paris & around the world and then to reach out in Kindness RIGHT THERE WITH A GROUP OF
STRANGERS to take a hand.

I used the gift of music to have us sing to comfort ourselves & relieve the pain of such a tragedy.

We sang Amazing GRACE together & then I told the story ( with help from the Audience!) behind the song. The author, John Newton had owned slave ships and miraculously found GRACE  or shall we say GRACE FOUND HIM when he almost died in a storm.  He realized & repented from his wrong choices of priorities ( MONEY & not compassion) and

HE instantly was transformed & did his best to stop and FIGHT FOR LIBERTY FOR ALL

THE TRUE LIBERTY THAT WANTS TO SET EVERYONE FREE ~ EVEN OUR ENEMIES!!!!

BY GRACE!

CHOOSE LIFE NOW ~ DO NOT WAIT UNTIL YOUR DEATH BED.

NO DAY IS UNDER OUR CONTROL only this MOMENT ~

CHOOSE LIFE! CHOOSE GOD’S LIBERTY FROM FEAR ~

GOD’S AMAZING LOVE & GRACE COVERS IT ALL.

That grace changed John’s life & he was able to change the world for many with his

life’s most memorable work : setting captives FREE & WRITING A SONG ABOUT IT!

WHAT IS YOUR SONG TODAY?
WHAT IS YOUR GIFT FOR THE WORLD?
FOR ABUNDANT LIFE ~ LIBERTY & FREEDOM FOR ALL~~~~ GRACE!!!

GRACE IS A GIFT ~ HAVE YOU OPENED YOUR PACKAGE YET?

TODAY IS A GOOD TIME~ NOW IS THE MOMENT
THIS PRESENT GRACE!

TOMORROW is a mystery !~  NOW IS WHAT WE HAVE ~ CHERISH IT~
FORGIVE SOMEONE…FORGIVE YOURSELF…DO THE HARD THING  NOW
TOMORROW MIGHT BE TOO LATE….

FOR NOW~

GOD’S AMAZING GRACE & KINDNESS IS THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON OF CHOICE THERE IS!
FIGHT WITH LOVE & WORDS OF KINDNESS ~ EVERYWHERE
STARTING IN PRAYER

FOR FRANCE and our neighbor… they might even be FRENCH & NEED HELP or a hug from a friend ~ YOU!

OR TOMORROW THE BOMB COULD DROP IN OUR HOME TOWN!
SPEAK UP NOW!!!!

DO SOMETHING!
DON’T JUST TALK ~ WALK THE WALK ~

GIVE A CUP OF KINDNESS TO SOMEONE.

THE OUTPOURING OF LOVE FOR THE FRENCH NATION just like when we needed it on 911

is PRECIOUS ….BUT DO NOT WAIT FOR CRISIS ….LET US BE IN THE HABIT OF COMPASSION

RIGHT WHERE  WE ARE!!

We must EMBRACE the pain of others & ourselves and then return to JOY & movement to

do something with the gifts we have .

Paris & ALL countries are under attacks because of FEAR .

WE ARE ALL SAD for what is happening in the WORLD BUT IF WE
BELIEVE IN LOVE …TRUE & PURE ETERNAL LOVE THAT CREATED THIS WORLD & &S

WE ARE NOT AFRAID~~~

IT STILL CAN BE A WONDERFUL when we have a THANKFUL HEART!

IN DEATH ~ LIBERTY CAN BE IGNITED

WITH LOVE

TO PARIS & YOU

GIVING THANKS

IMG_6593

THANKS GIVING IS NOT A ONE TIME HOLIDAY FOR ME!

BEING THANKFUL IS A CRITICAL COMPONENT OF TRUE HEALTH !

IT IS A DAILY & CONSTANT HABIT THAT HELPS COMBAT DEPRESSION AND/OR

DISCOURAGEMENT WHEN PLANS DO NOT TURN AS EXPECTED OR HOPED.

SO MANY TIMES THOUGHTS OR “BAD” NEWS CAN BEGIN TO DISCOURAGE US

BUT HAVING A HABIT OF COUNTING BLESSINGS AND BEING THANKFUL FOR AS MANY THINGS AS POSSIBLE STOPS A NEGATIVE ATTITUDE FROM TAKING AWAY OUR PEACE.

THANKS GIVING IS SUCH A GREAT HABIT TO HAVE!

KEEP A THANKFUL LIST GOING IN YOUR HEAD & HEART AT ALL TIMES.

WRITE DOWN & PRACTICE TELLING YOURSELF & OTHERS WHAT YOU ARE THANKFUL FOR.

WHAT COULD BE NICER THAN BEING THANKED & NOTICED WHEN WE DO SOMETHING

THAT OTHERS APPRECIATE. GOD LOVES A GRATEFUL HEART & SO SHOULD WE.

LET’S GIVE THANKS CONTINUALLY TO GOD & OTHERS AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE.

THE LITTLE THINGS THAT OFTEN GO UN~NOTICED TURN OUT TO ACTUALLY BE

THE BIG THINGS IN LIFE:

*SMILES ( COLLECT & THANK OTHERS WHEN YOU RECEIVE A GENUINE SMILE!)

YOU WILL BE SURPRISED HOW MANY PEOPLE NEED A SMILE OR A THANK YOU
TO BRIGHTEN THEIR DAY ….INCLUDING YOU!

*SUNRISES & SUNSETS ~ NOTICE THEM & MAKE A POINT TO THANK GOD!

THEY ARE POSTCARDS FROM OUR CREATOR & WE SHOULD RESPOND TO ETERNAL MAIL!

*FLOWERS & TREES MADE FOR OUR ENJOYMENT

*A HOME GROWN APPLE OR HOME COOKED MEAL~ MANY PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE THAT BLESSING

*SHOES THAT FIT~ GROWING UP I REALLY APPRECIATED THE YEARLY NEW PAIR I GOT AT CHRISTMAS

*SOCKS WITHOUT HOLES OR SOCKS AT ALL! ( MUCH OF THE WORLD GOES BAREFOOT)

*A WARM BED ON A RAINY NIGHT WHEN FOR SOME REASON YOU CAN NOT SLEEP!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

THESE CAN ALL TURN INTO PRAYERS FOR OTHERS ~HELPING US TO REALIZE

HOW BLESSED WE REALLY ARE~

*PRAY FOR A WARM BED FOR ALL THE HOMELESS

*SOCKS & SHOES FOR THOSE WITH NONE

*AN APPLE OR SMILE FOR A HUNGRY OR LONELY PERSON

*EYESIGHT FOR THOSE WHO ARE BLIND OR AWARENESS FOR THOSE WHO

JUST DO NOT NOTICE

*FLOWERS ~ TREES

*SUNSETS & SUNRISES…THE MANY SIMPLE PLEASURES IN LIFE.

 

JOIN ME IN THE HABIT OF LOOKING UP IN THANKS TO

THE FATHER OF LIGHTS & NIGHTS

MAIDENS & KNIGHTS

ALL BEING SHINED UP FOR GLORY

IN THE PEACE OF GOD

THERE ARE TEMPORARY THINGS THAT BRING COMFORT~

SOME LESS HARMFUL THAN OTHERS

YOGA …CHURCH…FOOD…CHOCOLATE…FRIENDS…MOVIES…A WARM HOUSE..

BUT THE ONLY TRUE & LASTING COMFORT IS

THE INTERNAL KIND:

THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT JESUS PROMISED

….IF WE WILL ASK

BUT WE MUST ASK  !!!

TAKE SOME TIME & GO FOR A WALK IN NATURE BUT

DON’T JUST LOOK AT THE STARS & TREES

TALK TO THE ONE WHO CREATED THEM~

PRAY…PRAYER IS JUST TALKING TO GOD  and then

LISTEN FOR AN ANSWER

IF YOU ARE SINCERE YOU WILL GET AN ANSWER THAT ONLY COULD BE
FROM GOD…also

OPEN THE BIBLE …I RECOMMEND BEING OFF THE COMPUTER

AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE

SO GRAB A BIBLE & READ

PSALM 91

OR CLICK ON THE GOLD WORDS ANYWHERE IN THESE POSTS

YOU LET GOD SPEAK & COMFORT YOU

EVEN IF IT IS JUST THE “ONE” YOU LIVE WITH

BE IT A CHILD ~ A FRIEND.
