On Forgiveness and Love

One can never over-emphasize the importance of forgiveness. In essence, forgiveness does many things to the mind, the body and the soul. Through forgiveness we heal from the inside out and we learn to love one another unconditionally. Another feature of forgiveness is that it is very freeing to oneself, so that we might think more clearly. When we think more clearly, we can show the love we have in our hearts.

While we're in the process of freeing ourselves, we are also manifesting the care and love that inevitably comes from our God in Heaven. As we let go, God can come in and heal our hurting hearts. We can then be freed from the sadness and move into the gladness.

Forgive as the Lord forgave you. (Colossians 3:13)

Aloha nui loa and hui ho!

Love and Gratitude

I wanted to let my wonderful readers know that I have survived the major drama from the horrific fall I took. Miraculously, I did not lose anything other than some brain cells. I certainly have a story to tell for everyone who wants to listen about how terrible I looked and how joyous I am that I no longer am bearing this black and blue mark. Thank you and aloha to that special someone for your lovely thoughts that greet me each day.

Happiness in times of great catastophes

. . . Yes! And I'm doing far better since that blasted accident where I just about broke nearly every bone in my face. Or, maybe just my zygomatic arch . . .

Recently we witnessed the earthquake in Haiti. The incredible amount of pain and suffering that the people of Haiti have had to endure, most of us have no conception of. Nor can we conceive of the kind of poverty that these people live in. Is it possible the Haitian government is negligent in allowing builders to disregard building codes? That would have helped an entire nation, as far as I see it, yet they didn't appear to have that going for them either. What is going on with the building codes in this day and age? The answer to the question is, there are no building codes for people who are suffering so without a government to enforce the rules and regulations for people who are groveling in such poverty. I pray for them most days, and have sent funds their way. I know many others have done the same, and I salute everyone who has aided them in their plight.

Additionally, what's to become of the impoverished people of South America? Apparently they do follow many of the proper building codes in Chile, but there's a lot of improvement to be done to help the poorest among them. Right now in our world there is an insane amount of ever widening poverty. The world economy is a global issue literally circumnavigating the planet, and at times I carry a heavy heart because of the unfathomable amount of people who suffer on such a grand scale. People who have been doing it so hard and for so long that I believe we could all do a little bit more to help in their regard.

With the theory of relativity in mind, I know that we can make a difference for all people great and small.

Does Your Face Hurt?

Soooo... I have one question to ask; Does your face hurt? Whelp, it IS killing me !!

I say back to her as a coloquialism. And, with tongue in cheek. 'Cause it IS in fact killin' me.

What all this in essence means is that I got a major boo boo on my face, because for some reason I slipped and banged up my eye to the point that it is so black and blue that I can't even open my eye to greet the day. Nor, can I see out of my right eye at all.

So, that is the beginning of my story about yesterday and the headache and black eye that I proudly wear, much as I did not want anything of the sort to happen.

But, we must remember to think in the positive. Therefore, I decided that I could write a little ditty about how there's always the positive and the negative to every situation. Do you want the good news or the bad news? Which do you want to hear, I say to my dearest friend.

I would always respond with, I want the good news; except for the fact that I have one blazing black eye, I'm not so sure now which I would prefer. Yikes! I am NOT enjoying my black eye, but I am enjoying the humor that it is striking out before me.
