:-)                          FOOTPPRINTS
 
One night a man had a dream he dreamt he was walking along the beach with the Lord.Across the sky flashed scenes from his life .For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints in the sand ; one belonged to him and the other to the Lord
 
 When the last scene of his life flashed before him,he looked back at the footprints in the sand .He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints.He also noticed that it happened at the lowest and saddest times of his life
 
 This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it " Lord " you said that once I decided to follow you ,you would walk with me all the way .But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life,there is only one set of footprints . I don't understand why ,when I needed you the most you would leave me .
 
 The Lord replied," My son,My precious child ,I love you and would never leave you . During your times of trial and suffering ,When you see only one set of footprints..........
 
                     It was then that I carried you
 
 I have always loved this even when young there is much more to the actual story of this but this is what is usually in print .......I am sharing this only as I love it so much not for any Religious reasons so please dont feel I am pushing it ( religion) on you
I am just sharing this beautiful story I feel it gives ppl hope when even at their lowest
 
Take care
Be well and
Stay strong

yeah  I do a "teen Night" here at the Church where the teens come and talk about what ever they want and they play music do anything to kep off the streets and hopefully out of drugs and alcohol
I was (we ) were donated many musical instruments and the Church donates the space
I feel this is a great thing to do and it gets me out as well .My daughter just loves it as well ......
I got the idea from an old member " Brownleaf " and it is appropriately called " Ian's Kids "
This was his dream and I was fortunate to help him to fulfill some of it
He is looking into corporate sponsers and such to help out we have played ( they) at other churches ,legion and one wedding ..........have more bookings coming up .Our town is little and has many problems with teens and drugs ( not just teens) but drugs are rampant here.....
Hopefully this will help in some lil way to make them think 2wice about what they are doing with life 'Also my door is always open to any teen here to come and talk
Just wanted to share as they make me PROUD
Luvs
Lyn  yeah

hi Lyn --- love "footprints." Here is one the ladies may like:

This is written in the Hebrew Talmud, the book
where all of the sayings and preaching of
Rabbis are conserved over time.
It says: "Be very careful if you make a woman
cry, because God counts her tears. The woman
came out of a man's rib. Not from his feet to be
walked on. Not from his head to be superior, but
from the side to be equal. Under the arm to be
protected, and next to the heart to be loved."
Pass this on to all exceptional women that you know..
and to men so they know the value of a woman.
"You don't find out that God is all you've got until God is all you've got."

"You are richer today if you have laughed, given or forgiven."

Here is another favorite. This is how I feel about all of you at HealingWell. God bless you.

The Whale:

A fisherman spotted her just east of the Farralone Islands (outside
the Golden Gate) and radioed an environmental group for help.
Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she
was so bad off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle
her ...

a very dangerous proposition.

One slap of the tail could kill a rescuer.

They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her.

When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like
joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a
time, and nudged them, pushed gently around-she thanked them. Some
said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives.

The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth says her eye was following
him the whole time, and he will never be the same.

May you, and all those you love, be so blessed and fortunate to be
surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things
that are binding you. And, may you always know the joy of giving and
receiving gratitude.

I was get anxious about not being 'normal' and desire some sense of 'normalcy'. I was actually in the HW chat room when a good friend lended me a quote.

I am inspired by all the caretakers of ppl with Alzheimers .
Mom had it and now I am looking after my (step) dad as well
I see and read of the struggles and the strife they go thru and I feel quite the connection
I am glad to see that ppl just dont make seniors wih or with out AD " throw away garbage "
They are why we are here
we need to respect and give the dignity they deserve
More kids can learn from our seniors and should IMO
Take care

I definitely believe since i was at my worst one morning, i knew i had to get up and go to work, i HATED mornings with a purple passion.  I wanted to puke the minute i got out of bed, i shook and trembled, didn't want to eat, complete mess.  eyes
Then from that day forward, tiny baby steps, it got better.  What did i do?  I picked up the bible and read and read.  Then i found this minister, Joyce Meyer, she is the most ABSOLUTE wonderful person to give you common sense advise and general knowledge, explained how you can understand, that i've ever seen.  I had to be stripped down to nothing and remolded in my thinking.  That is what i believe had to happen to get over this.  God allowed me to be sick while he worked on me. You have to be patient, which is the hardest part.  but i tell you, If you pray about it, and ask god for help, admit you can't do it on your own, and give the worries to him.  Trust me it will get better each day! i'm so much better your would NOT believe it.  and i was never religious a day in my life.  Not seriously anyway.  When i needed it the most i got help. from him!!!  lil ole me. got a new outlook, and attitude. any of you can do it!!!  pick yourself up and tell the devil. "get behind me in jesus name" and he WILL flee from you.
 
God bless...

Cait inspires me
Her and 2 friends were to collect canned foods at Santa Parade last night BUT her 2 friends did not show they decided to go to a teen dance instead and didnt call to let her know even
My Cait followed thru and went out and collected for the ppl that dont have enough so that they will have a decent meal for the Holiday
I am so proud of her
I was in bed all day yesterday and she did all my usual work and more around here for me
This kid is growing up into a beautiful loving giving young lady that makes her momma so PROUD

I get my thoughts in line
as I synch up the how’s and the why.
How I got this
it doesn’t matter.
Why I have this
I guess I don’t know the answer.
But who I am now,
is so much more than who I was.
Fingertips lift a paint brush
and spread my sadness upon a canvas,
leaving it there to dry
and be forgotten.
So I write, and I draw, and dabble in the crafts
that make me feel whole.
I have something I can’t quite figure out,
that I know.
But with each new day,
I open my eyes,
cast a smile upon my lips,
and pray for a decent afternoon.
I turn to HW,
and then continue with my day,
Stretch out a bit, meditate,
and then forget what was yesterday,
focus on the now,
and not even worry about tomorrow.
Tomorrow’s just another day.
With a will I’ll find the way
to my inner strength
and inner peace.
Now it's just a matter of time
to find a way,
to put myself at ease.

                                 DAD
 
 
 
                                     Dad You are My Hero
 
 Dad I want you to know that all the stars arenrt really in the sky.Sometimes they speak and walk on Earth because I have known one in my time
 
 Dad you might never receive a real reward for all you have done in life.You may not receive a medal
 
 It seems to me you have lived your life NOT for what you could get ,but rather,you saw that your loved ones needs were always met
 
 So if that's the only medal you have ever wanted for reward ,let me give one this day
   To my very own STAR.........Love you Dad always ........

Ok ok since it was requested I decided to write...I wrote a new one just for this thread. I dedicate it to all the "faceless friends" out there who have helped me...You all know who you are.

Inspiration

Inspiration I search to find
Looking, searching, in my mind
Inspiration I can not find.

Inspiration is an art
Looking, searching, in my heart
Looking there was a start.

I couldn't find it here
I could not find it there,
If not heart or mind, where?

Not in mothers
Or sisters and brothers
But in others.

Friends in unlikely places
In far off spaces
With unseen faces.

These friends are my foundation
Even if in another nation
That's where I find inspiration.
