  3. Under GODS wing for three years:

    Part of my testemony during this time; My story:
    Not to many people know who I am or what I stand for or what I have been through.

    I am a survivor of child hood abuse, and been through abusive relationships among a lot of others. If it were not for God looking out for me through my life and coming to me to heal me, I would not be here today. I know he has plans for me and I need to be patient. I suffered from PTSD and God worked on me from the inside out. It wasn’t always fun. To this day he is molding me. None of us our perfect. I have been blessed in many ways. God came to me in a big way and opened up the heavens for me, I call it my revival time, and I was under his wing in a big way for three years.

    I was talking to God, Jesus, and his hosts like I was talking to any other person. How it started, I blamed God for all my mishaps and the situation at the time I was in, and had put myself into. I cursed at him and he came to me and it felt like he reached his hand into my heart and said to me, don’t blame me for getting your mind in a stupor. I was not taking care of myself very well, and was self destructive. I would never do that again, and do not blame God for all my mishaps anymore. Without GOD’S MERCY AND GRACE, I would not even been living. I have always been a believer and now I am a strong believer in Jesus Christ, my savior. Well after that I was under his wing for three years, and unbelievable, and exstordinary things started to happen. One of the times God came to me I was watching TV and he turned the TV off and we were engaged in conversation, he talked to me through my journals, music, showed me visions during this time I call my revival.

    I was very depressed during this time. God comfort and encouraged me. He guided me, and he showed me that I was being hit by different things on all four sides. He came to me one time and wanted to talk to me, and I asked him if I could have a beer during this time, he responded and said, “give me a break”. I can’t believe I said that to the almighty God, he had patience with me. I have grown since then and during that time I had hit rock bottom, felt like I was losing everything, my home, husbannd, kids, dignity, and self. It was a hard time, and I wanted to die. He revealed many things, and I am still growing. He showed me of reverting back and forth to a former me, that I still struggle with. He led me to people to help, and others who helped me. He showed me how to fight spiritually, and stop Satan from using my mind as a playground, and gave me a sense of direction. He exalted me, and took me to places to strip me,voided me metiphoricaly like the earth was void, and sat with me down physically and walked me through Genesis in the beginning and created a new. He did much more during those three years. He was with me when I got into a fender bender and warned me about it prior, I was heading to Seaside Oregon, and the day before I was warned, so the next day I was caught off guard, and didn’t heed warning and rear-ended a lady and my airbag flew open and hit me real hard in the nose. Well I sank into myself, and an angel grabbed me and held me and said, “Trust God”. Amazing is Gods grace.

    Many more like these things happen during my three year revival. In the end I asked him if he would come and talk to me like this and he said no, but he will find his ways, and he does with a thought or through music, he let me know I have sleep apnea, which I haven’t done anything about it yet, but will someway. He also stated that he is the Alpha and Omega and not to hurt him again. I love God, and he has my back. God bless!!!

  4. What are we here for?

    The difficulties and challenges most all of us share can be overwhelming , choices we make in life can have great impact on our very own souls. We question our very existence at times, and wonder what its all about, and ask why! We try to give it our best shot, and worry about falling short. We talk to God, and we try to stay calm, and hope and gloat for better tomorrows. We try to hang in there, thrive, jive and hold on to our pride. We try not to ever give up, and when we can let go, let god, and let loose, and try not to get into situations that will cook our goose. We all have our moods that could easily be miscued. We are only human beings created to be free, and sent on our way due to a tree. A snake in the midst to trick us not to exist. Still asking what are we here for, is it to explore, and want more? Is it vanity and to hold on to our fantasies? Is it a lesson and to be a blessing? We laugh, we cry, we sing, we worship, we fight to be right. We sleep, and weep. What are we here for?

  6. Part of my testomonies during a time of emotional need, during rough times in my life.

    I am far from perfect and have had thoughts of not feeling good enough, disappointed, and obstacles in my way, an ordinary girl, but an extraodinary experience. I have been blessed through my life in many ways. I have had older sisters that were sometimes rough on me growing up. They would make me sweep the floors over and over again, over due thnigs and be mean. It was when we became adults that we got along better.
    A vision God gave me one time through my life, is that when I was up against some obtacles in my life, and feeling down, guilt ridden about some personal stuff he showed me a vision of his forgiveness and I saw his blood flowing over me.

    Another experience I had during my revival time I call it, during a three year period in my life was that the Lord was telling me that I been accepted and to take the back seat and he would drive cinderella
    home from now on.

    My faith has not always been the strongest and don’t know why God connected to me the way he did, I know I was seeking the truth. Out of the whole world he felt I was important enough to help guide me. I feel I have not always kept up with my part of the bargain being human in nature. God has never left me, and I believe strongly, but again not always the most righteous person, and no different then a lot of other people.

    Most the time I feel like I am always searching and struggle with being content. My faith is growing, but at times feel disappointed, and I know I am not alone, but I have been blessed. Seek with all your heart and mind and you shall find me. Jeramiah 29:13 God cares about the ordinary as well as the extrordinary.

  7. An Angels Heart By Rachael Essington
    Born 2004, F, from Wyoming, United States

    An Angels Heart My name is Thomas. I live in Heaven and I really like where I live. It is beautiful everywhere I look. I Watch a beautiful girl down on earth. Oh and I’m her guardian angel. I was assigned to her by God, because he knew that I would fall in love with her. Her name is Lilly. She is 22 years old and she has beautiful long brown hair, big hazel eyes, tanish skin, and an amazing smile. I watch her every day. She is treated like garbage by a lot of people. She has a boyfriend that she says she loves and cares about, but he is mean to her and hurts her both physically and verbally. I wish I could protect her from the things that they say, but I can only help her make decisions. I wish I was a human that lived on Earth where she lives so I could save her. I could be her hero and she would fall in love with me. If I were human, I would want to spend all my life with her. She doesn’t know that I exist, but she knows that figures like me are real. Every day, she has mean things said to her. I send her down love from my heart to make her feel loved, even though not a lot of people love her on earth.

    One day, I was watching Lilly when God called me to talk to him. He was sitting in his throne with his son right next to him. He asked me if I really loved Lilly. I said I loved her more than anything. Then he asked me if I loved her enough to give up my position as an angel and live as a human, get her to love me instead of her nasty boyfriend. I said that I would love that to happen to me. My biggest wish would finally come true! He granted me my wish, kinda. By day I was human, but once the sun set, I was back in heaven as an angel. He did warn me that it might not end the way I wanted, but I guess that someday she would get to meet me. God smiled at me as he sent me away down to earth.

    I was on the ground and I no longer had wings. I could see Charles and Lilly. Charles is her mean Boyfriend. They were out on a street and he was saying that she was stupid because she didn’t do what he told her to do the exact way he told her to do it. Then he hit her in the face. I knew that I shouldn’t stand there and do nothing, so I ran up to him and told him to stand back, or he would regret it. That’s not what I should have said. I am not into violence, but for Lilly, I would take a bullet for her, even though that’s not physically possible. He gave me a dirty look and ran off. Lily looked at me and said, “That was very nice of you. Charlie does that to me a lot because i’m not perfect in his opinion. I don’t like him alot, but he does like to threaten me to do things for him.” I felt happy that she finally knows that I exist. I could feel my cheeks turn a bright pink and my heart beating really hard. “I live on this street and I see him do that a lot. I only just now got the courage to come save you. I’m sorry I wasn’t there sooner.” I said. I lied to her. Why did I do that. I sinned. I didn’t want her thinking that I was a creepy stalker, but I also wasn’t ready to tell her that I was her guardian angel sent down to save her. She invited me to dinner on saturday. I was excited to attend. The sun was setting and I had to go home soon. I walked away from that with a huge smile on my face.

    I hid in an alley as my wings started to sprout and my environment changed. Then I was home in my garden full of colorful flowers. God was there waiting for me. I told him that I threatened Charlie and lied to Lilly and that I was very sorry. I was surprised when he told me that I was forgiven and that is exactly what I should have done. I rested that night knowing that I was going to be her lover. My biggest wish was about to come true. I went to earth and talked to Lily each day just a little bit. Saturday came soon enough as I went to earth looking good. I shouldn’t gloat like that. I’m an angel, not a prince. We went to dinner at a restaurant and I payed somehow. But that doesn’t matter. She and I talked for quite a while. Little did I know that at the time, Charlie was watching us talk, thinking that she was cheating on him with me. This made him mad.

    That was the best night I ever had throughout all of my days. Weeks passed and I took her to dinner more and defended her more and more. It seemed like she was finally falling in love with me! I felt so happy that every night I went home in tears. Tears of joy. Charles decided that he had enough of me and that he wanted me dead. Besides, Lilly was HIS Girlfriend. All day, he hid in an alley, waiting for me to drop Lily off at her house. Eventually, we came and I hugged her before she went inside. Charles jumped out of nowhere and pulled out something dangerous that I never knew he had. He aimed at me and pulled the trigger. But before he did, Lilly knew it was her turn to defend ME from Charlie this time. She pushed me out of the way and the bullet hit her in the heart. Charles was mortified at what he had just done and he ran away. She started falling and I caught her close to the ground. She looked at me and said, “I know that you are my guardian angel, Thomas. I saw it in a dream. You came down because you loved me.” I felt tears streaming down my cheeks. “Lilly, I came down to earth so maybe you would fall in love with me and I would get to live a happy life as a human with you.” She closed her tear filled eyes and used all her strength to pull herself up and KISS me. The moment her lips touched mine, I felt something I had never felt before. It was the love I had for her, just more open and released. But that moment only lasted a moment. I tried to shake her awake, but It was no use.

    I held her lifeless body in my arms and I looked up at the sky. “Why did you take her away from me?” I asked, still crying. “I had her. Now she is gone. MY Lilly is gone.” I kissed her forehead then looked at the setting sun. In only a few minutes I would return to my home, feeling empty and lonely. I spent my last moments on Earth holding her in my arms. Then she started to disappear as well as my other surroundings. Then I was home. God was there waiting for me. “I warned you it would not be as you thought.” He said to me. “Yeah I should have listened to you. She died in my arms. I couldn’t save her from Charlie this time.”

    I walked to my garden home and there was someone standing inside my garden. She had beautiful brown hair, hazel eyes, tan skin, and an amazing smile. Lily was here, waiting for my return. I felt tears of happiness fill my eyes as I ran toward her. It WAS the happy ever after I wanted, just not how I thought it would be. Jesus looked at God and said, “You did good, father. Miracles do happen with you.”

  8. God opened up the Heavens for me:

    My greatest appreciation is to my lord and savior for his great love for us and what he has sacrificed so we can have a way to live. I do not ever want to take that for grant it again. I want to live my life according to Gods will, not mine. Not give to him half-heartedly as I have done, but fully with dedication and obedience. I believe he can do a much better job than I can ever do.

    I was a nobody, a little speck on earth, who god came to with his mercy and grace to help me quit destroying myself. I was on a path that either would of lead to death or a mental hospital. I always believed in God, I was raised that way by my mother. She always sat with us before we went to bed and said our prayers with us. I accepted Christ in my heart at a young age, always talked to god. I didn’t really have the concept of all who Christ was or could be to me, and I am still learning. She always encouraged us to follow the golden rule; to treat others as you would like to be treated. When I would get discouraged and felt I could not do something, she would say can’t never did do a dam thing. I learned that God cares about us all. I don’t know all the answers and still have the same questions a lot of people have. First, why do so many bad things happen to good people? All I can say is even in the bible a lot of bad things happen to the characters in it, but blessings came to. We are here to make a choice and find out who we are, and what we want to believe in, learn along the way. No one is perfect, and we all fall short. Not all things have to be revealed, but what influenced me with writing this is most important it can give someone else hope, especially if they have been in a hopeless place in their life. Our problems are for a time on this earth, but living with God is eternal.

    During a time of great darkness in my life God appeared to me and I was under his wing for about three years. He opened up the heavens for me during this time of great distress. I am a survivor of child hood physical and sexual abuse. I was going through a bad Period where my life was being destroyed day by day, angered, lost, and very distraught.
    I hit rock bottom and was addicted to drugs for about two years, and my consumption of alcohol kept increasing. I was searching for the truth, but started to blame God for my life struggles and hardships. I looked up and started to curse at God, and just than it felt like God was reaching his hand into my heart, and I saw a vision of him of what I portray God looking like and he told me, “Don’t blame me for you putting your mind in a stupor”. My ex-husband was there and I told him what I saw. (I was to be under Gods wing for three years). We had so many troubles at this time that it was beyond repair. Our drinking and mistakes we made along the way put us on that path. I was going through a divorce and nothing I can do about it to change my circumstances. After this I had many encounters with God, Jesus, and his host in heaven. I had angels working with me and sometimes it was like speaking to any other person, and sometimes it was indirectly, but I knew what was being said to me. First, I was given a lot of truths about my current circumstances and that my ex did not appreciate me. He was being very verbally abusive and had been physically abusive towards me as well. He was angry with me because I had been unfaithful to him, later I found out he had been unfaithful to me as well. When I talked to him about a divorce he said I was not taking his children, and when I claimed they were my children to, he lost it and came after me. He chased me outside, and through me down on the ground and kicked me. The neighbors called the cops. I allowed him back in the house, and I think at this time he was plotting to set me up to gain custody of the kids, and it was a big war. I had everything going on at once, I started to have flash backs of my past, and my marriage was over, and became displaced. The mental abuse was getting too much for me to deal with from my husband at the time. He was hurt too.
    I was guided to get away from him from an angel. She claimed I needed someone, and somewhere to go. I met this man named Jeff, but it was a re-bound relationship that lasted for way too long. I could not commit to him for various reasons I had. I do appreciate that he gave me a place to stay though. I was looking for someone more equally yoked like myself at this time, based on my beliefs, and how I wanted to change my life and live more for God. My path was leading somewhere different.

    After this experience I have been a different person and seek a life with Jesus in it. It is not easy and my faith can use some work at times. In spite, I know the truth of what is, what was, and what will be. God gave me a new beginning. I was in a low place, and had made a lot of poor choices.

    I got to the point of giving up hope, but he was there during a very rough time and confusion in my life. I had very low self-esteem, and still fight that a lot. I suffered from Co-dependency, and from PTSD, and a lot of emotional pain through the years. “Suffering isn’t just limited to Veterans and other Hero’s”.

    It is tragic what our Veterans go through, and they deserve the up most respect for fighting for our country. Without them we would not have the freedom we do.

    I started to write a journal and that’s when the spirit of God really moved through me. I started with words, and whatever came to my mind. I started to really reach out and it was like I was in boot-camp spiritually. I was living with a lot of what if’s, guilt. I had past trauma, and fear of the unknown. I felt like a living dead girl. My world was caving in, and not for the good. Drinking and drugging to escape from my reality was increasing.

    During these three years unbelievable and indescribable things happen to me. I did not quit drinking at first. Things that would go through my mind and questioned were answered for me. Such as, I was thinking and told the lord how depressed I was at the time, and he said for me to quit drinking. I quit using recreational drugs when he told me I turned myself into a drug attic. It was short term use, but long enough to do some harm. I was able to quit coming to the reality of turning myself into a drug attic. The most painful thing God was doing is surfacing up some past trauma I had from early child-hood abuse. God did it slowly because it was a very deep wound that I experienced, and did not know I was still suffering so badly from it. It was almost as if I was being poked of the residual physical effects still lingering way down deep into my soul. I lashed out and when I was lashing out I directed towards God.
    I asked him where this was coming from and he told me from the abuse. It prolifically surfaced, and as it did it seemed to subside and settle down for the most part, and I was able to process a lot of my past trauma I had. I did not understand everything that was going on with me during this time, but God revealed that I would. My journal turned into a big healing tool that when I wrote I felt that it was being spiritually guided by God. He showed me that in my life I had reverted back to former ways, and like anyone else needed to be watchful of backsliding. I was seeking forgiveness and for God to help me, and also seeking the truth.

    A person cannot change their ways without searching and seeing what needs to change. I was looking for love in all the wrong places and in too many faces. I was using sex for love, God revealed to I would be pleasing to him when I get older, and earned a crown metaphorically. I understand most of the things that happen during this time, but some more still will be revealed to me, like God said, he will drive Cinderella home someday like he said. I need to hold on to his word and faith.

    The horse that wanted more beauty
    ·
    A cosmic god had a horse. The horse was beautiful and also it had many good qualities. But it wanted to be more perfect in every way. It especially wanted to become beauty unparalleled.

    One day the horse said to the cosmic god, “0 Lord, you have given me beauty. You have given me other good qualities. I am so grateful to you. But how I wish you could make me more beautiful. I would be extremely, extremely grateful if you could make me more beautiful.”

    The cosmic god said, “I am more than ready to make you more beautiful. Tell me in what way you want to be changed.”

    The horse said, “It seems to me that I am not well proportioned. My neck is too short. If you can make my neck a little longer, my upper body will be infinitely more beautiful. And if you can make my legs much longer and thinner, then I will look infinitely more beautiful in my lower body.”

    The cosmic god said, “Amen!” Then immediately he made a camel appear in place of the horse. The horse was so disheartened that it started to cry, “0 Lord, I wanted to become more beautiful. In what way is this kind of outer form more beautiful?”

    The cosmic god said, “This is exactly what you asked for. You have become a camel.”

    The horse cried, “Oh no, I do not want to become a camell I wish to remain a horse. As a horse, everybody appreciated my good qualities. Nobody will appreciate me as a camel.”

    The cosmic god said, “Never try to achieve or receive more than I have given you. If you want to lead a desire-life, then at every moment you will want more and more. But you have no idea what the outcome will be. If you cry for a longer neck and legs, this is what will happen. Each thing in my creation has its own good qualities. The camel is not as beautiful as you are, but it carries heavy loads and has a tremendous sense of responsibility.

    We are all created perfect and marvelous for the will of God

  11. Pause

    I am on a journey like others and try to keep on the right path that is best for me. I have had different opportunities in my life and meet lots of new people in the process. I am blessed in many ways, and believe in the end it will be all OK.

    I like the outdoors, real life stories, reading, family, and friend get togethers, and got amused when my 94 year old grandmother played her game of 31. May she RIP.

    I am learning how to stop and smell the roses once in a while and just take a pause. In my life I always had that feeling of being on a constant go, like I was in a race. Sometimes that would still my opportunity of joy and living in the moment.

    Learning to let go, and let God run the show. Not let the worry or that feeling of if I don’t accomplish this now my window of opportunity will pass me by. I found if I am in an indecisive situation or struggle with something personal that I need victory over, but just can’t seem to conquer it completely, I take a pause from it and come back to it later.

    Life can be full of personal challenges and sometimes our mind having different members are not always synced together as they should be. The heart wants and the mind says no not good. A pause, or vacation can be exactly what’s needed or long overdue.

    I do not like to much stress or drama in my life, and like to be around real everyday people. By JL

  12. Potatoes, Eggs, and Coffee Beans

    Once upon a time a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn’t know how she was going to make it. She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time. It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed.

    Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot, and ground coffee beans in the third pot.

    He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter. The daughter, moaned and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing.

    After twenty minutes he turned off the burners. He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl. He pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl.

    He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup. Turning to her he asked. “Daughter, what do you see?”

    “Potatoes, eggs, and coffee,” she hastily replied.

    “Look closer,” he said, “and touch the potatoes.” She did and noted that they were soft. He then asked her to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg. Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee. Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face.

    “Father, what does this mean?” she asked.

    He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity– the boiling water.

    However, each one reacted differently.

    The potato went in strong, hard, and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak.

    The egg was fragile, with the thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water. Then the inside of the egg became hard.

    However, the ground coffee beans were unique. After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new.

    “Which are you,” he asked his daughter. “When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean? “

    Moral:In life, things happen around us, things happen to us, but the only thing that truly matters is what happens within us.

    Which one are you?

  13. VIVID DREAMS– By:JL

    Have you ever had a dream that felt so real that you had to check yourself and ask, ” is this really happening”?

    Waking up, distraught one morning, on the cusp of being still a sleep and awake. I had a dream I murdered someone, and I was going to jail for s very long time. My life of what was, was over. It wouldn’t take long before the police figure out who was responsible. For a moment, feeling so devastated, and worried. When I came to realization, that this was only a nightmare, I felt so relieved. “Wow, thank God I told myself”. “This is not really happening”.

    My youngest daughter was having some problems with her former boyfriend at the time. She was not letting on how abusive things really got between them. I believe it was him that I shot in my dream. His name Adam and in my dream he was in a gang, I saw him on a sidewalk on the side of a fence. I shot at him with a pistol I had. I then remember trying to hide his body in the woods, and putting him behind an old log laying down in some clear cuts, and wild shrubbery around the old log. This was crazy, my brother was there trying to help me. I was able to see the homicide task force looking around the area of where the body was hidden, and I felt if they found his body it would be linked backed to me, my emotions were very intense. Contemplating whether I should turn myself in or not. I woke up, and for a few second’s I was very paranoid and feeling like I am doomed. I am not a killer, and don’t know why I would have such a nightmare like this.

    At the same time, it could of been because I was working at a psychiatric hospital and the patients I worked with were either long term categorized as NGRI or there for evaluation of NGRI (not guilty reason of insanity). In addition, my daughter’s relationship with her boyfriend at the time might of had a play in it as well.
    All I know is it was crazy, and it felt so real.

    ‘Dreams are often most profound when they seem the most crazy.’ Sigmond Freud

    A dream can sometimes feel incredibly real – as if the sensation experienced are actually happening, but then as we wake up to everyday reality we cannot make sense of anything and wonder what it all meant.

    Through the centuries, the dreaming mind has been credited with being the source of ideas, insights, revelations and guidance, some of which have changed the course of history. Here are a couple examples, Julius Caesar’s decision to cross the Rubicon is attributed to a dream in which he saw himself in bed with his mother (Mother Rome, the seers told him.) His assassination was foretold in his wife’s Calpurnia’s dream.
    St. Francis of Assisi founded the Franciscan Order because of a dream in which Jesus Christ spoke from the cross, telling him to ‘go set my house in order’.

    NIGHTMARES:

    Dreams that terrify us of cause distress in some way by waking us up before the situation occur during REM sleep and typically arise when a person is feeling anxious or helpless in waking life. Once the dreamer has recognized what is triggering this kind of dream, and worked through any unresolved fears and anxiouties, nightmares tend to cease.

    NIGHT TERRORS:

    These are similar to nightmares, but because they occur in deep sleep (stage four) NREM non-rapid eye movement- deep sleep, when your brain is released from the demands of the conscious mind. Most people don’t remember their dreams during this stage or what terrified us, although we may be left with a lingering feeling of unexplained dread.

    REOCCURING DREAMS

    Dreams that reoccur typically happen when the dreamer is worried about a situation that isn’t resolving itself in waking life. Could also be when a person is suffering from some type of phobia.

  14. SUCCESS:
    Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I’m working on for my Psychology class. When I asked her to define success in her own words, she said, “Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile, not the money!”

  15. Most have no idea where the “Peace sign” comes from. Well, it comes from a man named Gerald Holtom back in 1958, using the “semaphore alphabet” (the alphabet with flags). He was trying to bring about “Nuclear Disarmament”. He used the ‘N’ and the ‘D’ in this alphabet to form what we know today as the “PEACE SIGN. (Y) Pretty cool, huh?

  16. You may not be where you want to be today, but remember you’re not in the grave. Be grateful to GOD for the gift of life. For the things you already have that others are struggling to get but may never get in their journey of life. Your present situation is another person’s dream and heart desire in life.

  17. A nice little tid-bit from my second BOOK. “The GRAND PLAN”…

    Light and Darkness
    In Heaven there is no such thing as light and darkness. The truth shines everywhere. There is no DARKNESS or shadows in HEAVEN. All things are in the openness of LIGHT! This thing called LIGHT and DARKNESS was created by Almighty God in the material realm so that man living on Earth could understand that there are two opposing realities and that one is dominant over the other. In our material world, here on Earth, these two realities are the very things that all was created around. This is why His first act after creating something (LIGHT) was to separate it from DARKNESS. He called the LIGHT “day” and He called the DARKNESS “night.” The sun had not yet been created. But He knew in the LIGHT, or day, we can see all that is true. In the DARKNESS one cannot see, we are the same as blind. Almighty God is teaching. In Heaven the truth shines as reality. There is nothing hidden. When Lucifer created EVIL, this opened a door that did not yet exist. All of a sudden there was something that became true that was not anything worth having or keeping. God now had to separate the two. God (LIGHT, TRUTH and GOOD) is in Heaven and had to separate Lucifer (DARKNESS, LIES and EVIL) from Him. He did this on the first day, spoken of in the Holy Bible, when He created the heavens and the Earth. Genesis 1:4 “God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness”. He separated “LIGHT” from “DARKNESS.” Lucifer created this darkness when he went against Almighty God who is the truth of all things. God gave a name to all He stood for (TRUTH) and what Lucifer now stood for (LIES) in his rebellion of Almighty God. Lucifer at this point became the ruler of this “DARKNESS,” and God is the ruler of “LIGHT.” God separated the two so He could isolate this DARKNESS from all that He is and stands for. GOOD is dominant over Evil, LIGHT is dominant over DARKNESS and GOD is dominant over the DEVIL! No matter how much DARKNESS there is, it cannot ever put out the LIGHT! EVIL can never put out GOOD! Just as the Devil cannot ever put out GOD. God gave us this LIGHT and DARKNESS in our world to show us with our human way of thinking that no matter what. LIGHT will always rule over DARKNESS! GOOD will always win over EVIL. This is all a part of His GREAT LESSON! 😉 It’s all very simple really… (Y)

  18. All the Difference in The World

    Every Sunday morning I take a light jog around a park near my home. There’s a lake located in one corner of the park. Each time I jog by this lake, I see the same elderly woman sitting at the water’s edge with a small metal cage sitting beside her.

    This past Sunday my curiosity got the best of me, so I stopped jogging and walked over to her. As I got closer, I realized that the metal cage was in fact a small trap. There were three turtles, unharmed, slowly walking around the base of the trap. She had a fourth turtle in her lap that she was carefully scrubbing with a spongy brush.

    “Hello,” I said. “I see you here every Sunday morning. If you don’t mind my nosiness, I’d love to know what you’re doing with these turtles.”

    She smiled. “I’m cleaning off their shells,” she replied. “Anything on a turtle’s shell, like algae or scum, reduces the turtle’s ability to absorb heat and impedes its ability to swim. It can also corrode and weaken the shell over time.”

    “Wow! That’s really nice of you!” I exclaimed.

    She went on: “I spend a couple of hours each Sunday morning, relaxing by this lake and helping these little guys out. It’s my own strange way of making a difference.”

    “But don’t most freshwater turtles live their whole lives with algae and scum hanging from their shells?” I asked.

    “Yep, sadly, they do,” she replied.

    I scratched my head. “Well then, don’t you think your time could be better spent? I mean, I think your efforts are kind and all, but there are fresh water turtles living in lakes all around the world. And 99% of these turtles don’t have kind people like you to help them clean off their shells. So, no offense… but how exactly are your localized efforts here truly making a difference?”

    The woman giggled aloud. She then looked down at the turtle in her lap, scrubbed off the last piece of algae from its shell, and said, “Sweetie, if this little guy could talk, he’d tell you I just made all the difference in the world.”

    The moral: You can change the world – maybe not all at once, but one person, one animal, and one good deed at a time. Wake up every morning and pretend like what you do makes a difference. It does.

  20. In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less, a 10 year old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in front of him.

    “How much is an ice cream sundae?”

    “50 cents,” replied the waitress.

    The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and studied a number of coins in it.

    “How much is a dish of plain ice cream?” he inquired. Some people were now waiting for a table and the waitress was a bit impatient.

    “35 cents,” she said brusquely.

    The little boy again counted the coins. “I’ll have the plain ice cream,” he said.

    The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away. The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and departed.

    When the waitress came back, she began wiping down the table and then swallowed hard at what she saw.

    There, placed neatly beside the empty dish, were 15 cents – her tip.

  21. This Teen Invented a Bra to Detect Breast Cancer After Almost Losing His Mother to the Disease

    This is a true story

    After almost losing his mother to breast cancer, Mexican teen Julián Ríos Cantú, 18, was inspired to join the fight against the disease.

    “When I was 13 years old, my mother was diagnosed for the second time with breast cancer,” says Ríos Cantú in a company video for his invention. “The tumor went from having the dimensions of a grain of rice to that of a golf ball in less than six months. The diagnosis came too late and my mother lost both of her breasts and, almost, her life.”

    Turns out, the young entrepreneur had the technology chops to match his passion. Recently, he unveiled Eva, a high-tech bra that can detect breast cancer in its early stages. (These are the cancer symptoms women are most likely to ignore.)

    “When there is a tumor in the breast there is more blood, more heat, so there are changes in temperature and in texture,” Ríos Cantú told El Univeral. “We will tell you, ‘In this quadrant, there are drastic changes in temperature’ and our software specializes in caring for that area. If we see a persistent change, we will recommend that you go to the doctor.”

    To learn more about how Eva works, watch Higia Technologies’ demo:

    The bra won top honors at the Global Student Entrepreneur Awards held in Frankfurt, Germany, in April. It was entered by Higia Technologies, the company where Ríos Cantú is currently CEO and co-founder.

    Eva is still a prototype and likely won’t be certified for use for the next two years. Still, it’s a major step forward in a fight that could save thousand’s of women’s lives.

    Of Judgemental People
    In the World are Millions if not billions of Judgemental people judgemental people never have been rare
    Of judge not and thou shalt not be judged it does seem their type of people never are aware
    They even pass judgement on total strangers so arrogant to them ignorance is bliss
    Live and let live to them does not hold meaning the point in the fair go they do seem to miss
    You will find them in every town and city, in rural village and in countryside
    It does seem that from the judgements of the judgemental that the non judgemental do not have a place to hide
    They are so small so very small in their ways suppose they cannot help the way they are
    They judge you favourably if they see you as successful by the job you work in or the size of your house and car
    Of judgemental people there are far too many though they would never see it in that way
    So arrogant they do not have compassion on others they do like to have their say
    The Human World would be better off without them they do not do much for Humanity
    The less who know of you the less to judge you that’s how it seems to cynical old me
    They live in every town and every city in every village and in every countryside
    It does seem that from the judgements of the judgemental for the non judgemental there is no place to hide.
