Inspirations from family & friends

I often receive inspirational sayings from family & friends who are on the internet, especially Charles. I hate to send them on & just delete them so I decided to add them here to share with those who come across my web page. I hope some of them will encourage you as well. Enjoy.

Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people.

I got this from my sister-in-law. It's short but it's meaningful.

Suppose one morning you never wake up, do all your friends know you love them? I was thinking...I could die today, tomorrow or next week and I wondered if I had any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that needed rekindling or three words needing to be said. Sometimes, "I love you" can heal & bless. Let every one of your friends know you love them. Even if you think they don't love you back, you would be amazed at what those three little words and a smile can do. God forbid I die tomorrow.....

Achieve Your Goals! inspirational and other misc info including a short article on colon cancer screening. Get your colonoscopy done soon if you are in your 40s or older or have a family history of colon cancer. Don't want those adenoma polyps growing in your intestines! It takes 10-15 years for one to develop into colon cancer. I got rid of mine in my early 40's. It was discovered by accident when searching for the reason for low iron (turned out to be caused by H-pylori-bacteria which is known to cause stomach ulcers). Yes, I advocate for earlier colonoscopies to screen for colon cancer. If I waited until I am in my 50's it wouldn't have been a good thing!

Mystery Flu "Five tense minutes later, out come the doctors and nurses, crying and hugging one another-some are even laughing. It's the first time you have seen anybody laugh in a week, and an old doctor walks up to you and says, "Thank you, sir. Your son's blood type is perfect. It's clean, it is pure, and we can make the vaccine."'

The Daily Motivator "The Daily Motivator is a brief motivational message that is published each Monday through Saturday on the web and by e-mail. Each daily message is about 200 words long and can easily be read in a minute or two. The Daily Motivator provides a fast, regular and reliable positive boost each day."
Even Now A very moving inspirational reminder of the importance of love in these troubled times.

Names of God Reveal Him Site gives good information on the names of God & how the names reveal God's character. "Elohim comes from the Hebrew root meaning "strength" or "power", and has the unusual characteristic of being plural in form. Throughout scripture, Elohim is combined with other words to describe certain characteristics of God. Some examples: Elohay Kedem - God of the Beginning: (Deuteronomy 33:27). Elohay Mishpat - God Of Justice: (Isaiah 30:18). Elohay Selichot - God Of Forgiveness: (Nehemiah 9:17). Elohay Marom - God Of Heights: (Micah 6:6). Elohay Mikarov - God Who Is Near: (Jeremiah 23:23). Elohay Mauzi - God Of My Strength: (Psalm 43:2). Elohay Tehilati - God Of My Praise: (Psalm 109:1). Elohay Yishi - God Of My Salvation: (Psalm 18:47, 25:5). Elohim Kedoshim - Holy God: (Leviticus 19:2, Joshua 24:19). Elohim Chaiyim - Living God: (Jeremiah 10:10). Elohay Elohim - God Of Gods: (Deuteronomy 10:17).

"EL" is another name used for God in the Bible, showing up about 200 times in the Old Testament. El is the simple form arising from Elohim, and is often combined with other words for descriptive emphasis. Some examples: El HaNe'eman - The Faithful God: (Deuteronomy 7:9). El HaGadol - The Great God: (Deuteronomy 10:17). El HaKadosh - The Holy God: (Isaiah 5:16). El Yisrael - The God Of Israel: (Psalm 68:36). El HaShamayim - The God Of The Heavens: (Psalm 136:26). El De'ot - The God Of Knowledge: (1 Samuel 2:3). El Emet - The God Of Truth: (Psalm 31:6). El Yeshuati - The God Of My Salvation: (Isaiah 12:2). El Elyon - The Most High God: (Genesis 14:18). Immanu El - God Is With Us: (Isaiah 7:14). El Olam - The God Of Eternity (Genesis 21:33). El Echad - The One God: (Malachi 2:10). "ELAH" is another name for God, used about 70 times in the Old Testament. Again, when combined with other words, we see different attributes of God. Some examples: Elah Yerush'lem - God of Jerusalem: (Ezra 7:19). Elah Yisrael - God of Israel: (Ezra 5:1). Elah Sh'maya - God of Heaven: (Ezra 7:23). Elah Sh'maya V'Arah - God of Heaven and Earth: (Ezra 5:11)."

THE NAMES AND TITLES OF GOD "One way of learning who God really is, is by learning God's names that He has revealed to us in the Bible. Biblical names are much more than nice sounding syllables. Most names found on the pages of the Holy Scripture reveal the inner character and nature of the one that bears them. The Bible reveals that God has many names and titles. We can better understand who God is when we study His names that are revealed in the Scriptures." Site gives a long list of the names of God & the meanings.

RECYCLED PETS Pet adoption agency. They bring pets to the Petsmart in Pineville NC & Rock Hill SC on Saturdays for adoptions. "Our animals are obtained in a variety of ways such as owner abandonment, rescues from high kill shelters, strays, owner surrender, etc. All of our animals receive urgent veterinary care along with routine vaccinations, deworming, heartworm preventative, appropriate testing, and are spayed / neutered. Further, all animals receive a microchip upon adoption that is registered with American Kennel Club, so that your animal can be returned to you if lost - nationwide.

~~~ A Rescuer's Creed ~~~

I shall be a believer of all that is good in man and of all that is deserving in animals.

I shall plead for their lives, campaign for their safety and uphold their right to a natural death.

I shall seek out the injured and the maimed, the unloved, and the abandoned and tend to them in their last days.

I shall not forget their place in the hierarchy of life, nor that we walk in each other's paths.

I shall bear witness to the wonder they bring into our lives and to the beauty they bestow upon our souls.

I shall renew their spirits when they are waning, bind their wounds when they bleed, cradle them when they whimper, and comfort them when they mourn.

I shall be near them in their hour of greatest need - a companion and friend when the time has come.

I shall watch over them and console them and ask that the angels gather them in their arms.

From the creatures of the earth I shall learn the fruits of compassion and undying love, and I shall be called the beloved of God.

In their company I shall indeed be blessed.

~ Susan M. Pearson ~"
