The BEAUTIFUL Fairy Story of my special Friend..

 My friend Julia and I met when working in a Hospital Emergency Department on the Sunshine Coast of Australia. Julia was one of our Triage secretaries and greeted patients with her soft voice and gentle, calming spirit. 

Julia, Jo (another R.N.), and I were all close zany friends who spent many happy MAD times together away from our work stress.  

                          Me                            Jo                          Julia

Looking at us here, you would NEVER guess we were responsible for the care and safety of Emergency Patients. At this time in our lives, we were all single again ladies.

I left to attend a conference in Chicago (and met my future husband, Raymond from Tennessee). Jo went on to meet her Mark, and Julia found her Knight, Robert. 

Julia wrote the story below about what became a very special time in her life.  Love ya Mate!! 


It has been some time now since the Princess and her Knight decided to build their home together.    When they were out driving in their carriage one beautiful Sunday, they found a house being built, and it was For Sale!   It was high on a hill overlooking a valley of misty trees in a place called Mooloolah Valley.    They contacted the artisan who was building the house and negotiated a price.  You may remember the Princess has written here of her ninety-two-year-old father.  He has been succumbing to the passage of time and needed caring for, so separate chambers were built within the home for him. The house was finished in three months, and they moved in on Christmas Eve last year.  There was much work to do around the grounds of the new manor house and many decorations inside to complete.

 The Princess and her Knight were very much in love and wished to announce their commitment to each other throughout the countryside.   They decided to have a festival to celebrate their new home and to surprise their friends.    They told their children of their plans and contacted a marriage celebrant.   They sent invitations throughout the land to friends far and wide.   Come to our festival!  Come one, come all!   There will be music, much to eat, in the good and gracious company.   

 As the day grew closer, preparations were at a fever pitch.  Musicians were organized to accompany the Princess’s dear Friend Lynette who was to sing them beautiful love songs Lynette’s voice is as lovely as her feathery namesake. The princess had asked her childhood friend Patricia to be her handmaiden on the special day.   Patricia and her husband had to travel many miles to be at the festival.  The Princess’s older daughter, Alanna, and her children live at the other end of the country, right up on the pointy part, and they traveled down to the festival. Her son Mathew and her younger daughter Meagan who live nearby, helped with preparations for the big day.   There was much searching for the most beautiful clothes for the Princess and her Knight to wear.  The Knight had chosen his daughter Bernadette’s husband Lee to be his Page.   A jeweler was found to fashion two gold rings. 

 The evening before the festival, as the family gathered to help with last-minute preparations, there was a commotion on the adjoining landholding.   There was a great deal of smoke, and it was discovered that the fields were on fire.   The firefighters came and extinguished the blaze.      Before retiring, the Princess decided to brew some coffee for her family and discovered that the water pump was not working.    Seventy people were coming to the festival at noon the next day and no water!   Calamity!   Luckily at midnight, they were able to find a plumber who fixed the problem early the next morning.    

 The morning of the sixth day of the twelfth month dawned gloriously.  It was typical Australian Christmas weather, warm and sultry, but luckily high on the hill, there was a gentle breeze. The knight’s three grandsons, Michael, Matthew, and Ben, were preparing great platters of fruit to welcome the guests as they started arriving at noon. 

Many of the happy couples traveling friends and associates of the Princess from her workplace came.  The Princess is a forward-thinking woman and has not yet retired from public life.  All of the invited guests are wonderful people who have made a difference in the lives of the couple.    The marriage celebrant arrived, and the handmaiden’s husband announced to the gathered throng that something very special was about to happen.

 The knight and his page took their places on the side of the balcony to the left of the marriage celebrant Audrey.   Audrey came from the faraway Emerald Isles and spoke in the soft brogue of the Princess’s grandmother, who was also of Celtic origin.   The handmaiden entered the balcony from the other side and then came the Princess in her beautiful mauve gown, escorted by her two grandsons, Max and Jack.    The ceremony was beautiful, and many surprised guests were moved to tears.   Ruby read a well-wishing prayer from an ancient parchment.   Lynette and Meagan sang beautiful love  Ballads. Gold Rings were exchanged, and toasts to past loves were given.   The Knight’s Mother and the Princess’s Father were both very happy that their loved ones had found their Anam Cara.

 There was much feasting and just a little imbibing.  A wedding to talk about for many years to come.

HUMANS did NOT Evolve from Apes/Monkeys

The supposed intelligence of man. 


There are so many fabrications that come from man.

Lies or are they a hypothesis? (A proposed human explanation?) 

University teaches us to make our own hypotheses about a substance or an entity. 

I loved University learning, yet not always the teachings. 


I believe in the Bible and God's Word. 

In Genesis, God spoke to Jesus (His very own Word)

And He said to Jesus, "Let us make man in OUR IMAGE.


So yes, God with Jesus, created/made man, in His/their image. 


God the Father is a spirit.... God the man (Jesus) came in a human body. 

And that bodily form did NOT derive from an APE.

So, we did not evolve ...  we were CREATED. 


Here is the scientific proof that cannot be refuted. 


Every living breathing form of life is made up of CHROMOSOMES.

So, what are chromosomes? 

They are a long DNA molecule. A threadlike structure of nucleic acids and protein that is found in the nucleus (eye) of most living cells. Chromosomes carry genetic information in the form of genes.

Humans have 23 Chromosomes from each parent. Adding to 46. The only difference is when a person is born with Down Syndrome. These humans have one extra chromosome equalling 47.

How much do you understand about AUTISM???


Autism is a very complex disability in that unless you have medical knowledge, it is difficult to diagnose. 

Today, in this day and age it is discovered much early than say fourty to seventy or more years ago. 

If someone in your family seems different then look into it more.. 

Sadly, in the older generation, many who suffered went through life trying to fit in and yet at times 

were ostracized. 

This happened to someone that I loved very much. 

Please read what my friend Bozina has written here, to help with a better understanding.

Healthy is Happy

 

Healthy me and healthy you..

Mental and physical health go hand in hand and everything depends on the foods we eat plus our state of mind. 

I am perplexed about people who do not believe in our creator God?  The human body is so complex and unique, how can anyone possibly not? 

KNOWLEGE IS POWER:

There is no way that I can give you a vast amount of knowledge in a small article.. Thats why medical books are super large in volume and the quanities written to depict the numberous subjects on the brain, heart, renal etc, are endless. 

Here I will touch briefly on the negus nerve. 

This nerve is the longest craniel (skull/head) nerve and runs its messages from the brain to the digestive system. 

Its sensory information then controls how the body performs and fuctions. 


Please don't look at this and imagine all sorts of things about yourself.. 
It is simply to give you some understanding.
Anything about yourself that you are unsure of, go and see a professional, doctor, naturapath or such.
I also believe is healing prayer. 

Some of the symptoms shown below are simply caused by dehydration. The human body is made up of between 55% to 70% water. So we need to consume full glasses of water daily to sustain this. Coffee, tea and beverages based on caffeine are diuretics, which means they strip fluids OUT of the body. For this reason, they dehydrate the body... so plain water is very important to keep body fluids well balanced.  



Eating good food is the key to good health. 

NOT eating all take-away, deep fried, and over cooked food that is also unknown in freshness, or cleanliness of origin. 





In this next diagram it is seen how the brain regulates every area of the body.
 


The human body a marvelous complex creation... 


Breathing well, drinking water and eating more LIVE/Raw fruits and vegetables.

Good proteins that are not over cooked. Limited fried and sugary foods.

Also CANOLA OIL is Bad. While most of the others are good. 

Check food labels. You may not be able to keep away from all of them.

AUSTRALIA the Land Down Under... It is a MYSTERY to the Rest of the World.

 


An Island...  A Country  and a Continent ... UNIQUE. 

And the same land size as the United States of America.. Yet unknown to many. 



AUSTRALIA: AN AMERICAN VIEW...
Interesting set of observations from a visitor from the other side of the Pacific. ‘Value what you have and don't give it away.' There's a lot to admire about Australia, especially if you're a visiting American, says David Mason. More often than you might expect, Australian friends patiently listening to me enthuse about their country have said, ''We need outsiders like you to remind us what we have.'' So here it is - a small presumptuous list of what one foreigner admires in Oz.
1. Health care. I know the controversies, but basic national healthcare is a gift. In America, medical expenses are a leading cause of bankruptcy. The drug companies dominate politics and advertising.
Obama was crucified for taking halting baby steps towards sanity. You can't turn on the telly without hours of drug advertisements - something I have never yet seen here. And your emphasis on prevention - making cigarettes less accessible, for one - is a model.
2. Food. Yes, we have great food in America too, especially in the big cities. But your bread is less sweet, your lamb is cheaper, and your supermarket vegetables and fruits are fresher than ours.
Too often in my country an apple is a ball of pulp as big as your face.
The dainty Pink Lady apples of Oz are the juiciest I've had. And don't get me started on coffee.
In American small towns it tastes like water flavoured with burnt dirt, but the smallest shop in the smallest town in Oz can make a first-rate latte.
I love your ubiquitous bakeries, your hot-cross buns. Shall I go on?
3. Language. How do you do it?
The rhyming slang and Aboriginal place names like magic spells.
Words that seem vaguely English yet also resemble an argot from another planet.
I love the way institutional names get turned into diminutives - Vinnie's and Salvos - and absolutely nothing is sacred.
Everything's an opportunity for word games and everyone's a nickname.
Lingo makes the world go round.
It's the spontaneous wit of the people that tickles me most.
Late one night at a barbie my new mate Suds remarked, ''Nothing's the same since 24-7.'' Amen.
4. Free-to-air TV. In Oz, you buy a TV, plug it in and watch some of the best programming I have ever seen - uncensored.
In America, you can't get diddly-squat without paying a cable or satellite company heavy fees.
In Oz a few channels make it hard to choose.
In America, you've got 400 channels and nothing to watch.
5. Small shops. Outside the big cities in America corporations have nearly erased them.
Identical malls with identical restaurants serving inferior food.
Except for geography, it's hard to tell one American town from another.
The ''take-away'' culture here is wonderful.
Human encounters are real - stirring happens, stories get told.
The curries are to die for. And you don't have to tip!
6. Free camping. We used to have this too, and I guess it's still free when you backpack miles away from the roads.
But I love the fact that in Oz everyone owns the shore and in many places you can pull up a camper van and stare at the sea for weeks.
I love the ''primitive'' and independent campgrounds, the life outdoors.
The few idiots who leave their stubbies and rubbish behind in these pristine places ought to be transported in chains.
7. Religion. In America, it's everywhere - especially where it's not supposed to be, like politics.
I imagine you have your Pharisees too, making a big public show of devotion, but I have yet to meet one here.
8. Roads. Peak hour aside, I've found travel on your roads pure heaven.
My country's ''freeways'' are crowded, crumbling, insanely knotted with looping overpasses - it's like racing homicidal maniacs on fraying spaghetti.
I've taken the Hume without stress, and I love the Princes Highway when it's two lanes.
Ninety minutes south of Bateman's Bay I was sorry to see one billboard for a McDonald's. It's blocking a lovely paddock view. Someone should remove it.
9. Real multiculturalism. I know there are tensions, just like anywhere else, but I love the distinctiveness of your communities and the way you publicly acknowledge the Aboriginal past.
Recently, too, I spent quality time with Melbourne Greeks, and was gratified both by their devotion to their own great language and culture and their openness to an Afghan lunch.
10. Fewer guns. You had Port Arthur in 1996 and got real in response. America replicates such massacres several times a year and nothing changes.
Why?
Our religion of individual rights makes the good of the community an impossible dream.
Instead of mateship we have ''It's mine and nobody else's'.
We talk a great game about freedom, but too often live in fear.
There's more to say - your kaleidoscopic birds, your perfumed bush in springtime, your vast beaches.
These are just a few blessings that make Australia a rarity.
Of course, it's not paradise - nowhere is - but I love it here.
No need to wave flags like Americans and add to the world's windiness.
Just value what you have and don't give it away.

My Talented Christian Grandson


 



The most special blessing to me, as a mother and a grandmother is to know that my children and grandchildren are covered and sanctified in the BLOOD of Jesus.

My heart rejoices in this knowledge. 

My grandson Joel, is such a very special young man. At twenty nine years old, Joel is Spirit filled and loves the Lord.
