How to Nurture a Loving and Caring Wife

Bring your wife a flower let her know how much you care
Massage her feet and shoulders so she feels that you are there
Write a little poem or sing a song that she can hear
Put your arms around her, hold her close to ease her fear
Say the meal was great, without her asking for reply
Tell her she looks pretty, don't let others catch her eye
And when the day is over or even when her nights are through
You can be pleased in knowing you did things she wanted you to
Thank her for the laundry she so dutifully folds
Tickle her a little, ask what dreams her heart may hold
Take an evening stroll with her and squeeze her hand real tight
Kiss her like you did with passion during dating nights
Tell her you admire her and sit with her and swing 
Take her dancing sometimes even if its not your thing
And when the day is over or even when her nights are through
You can be pleased in knowing you did things that you should do
So gentlemen I ask you do these ever cross your mind
And did you happen to notice most take no more than your time
It doesn't take a million to let her know she's number 2
She'll appreciate that God is first and that He guides you thru
You are to love her deeply just as Jesus loves the church
He brought to you this precious mate so you could end your search
So look her in her eyes sometimes and take her hands and pray
Show her that she's in your heart today and every day
And when the day is over or when her nights are through
You can be pleased in knowing you did things God asked of you
With Love,

Check Out Sassy, the Vegan Coach. Man I am truly enjoying fresh fruits and veggies like never before

Vegan">">Vegan Coach: Where Easy Cooking, Smart Nutrition, and a Fun Lifestyle Meet

This is it people.  I have walked for health for many years.  I was faithful with it for a long time and the weight came pouring off.  Now, I just want to clock my miles and the amount of time I spend walking.  I am going to take pictures along the way of my various journeys just for the memories.  You know with my interest being Psychology, I'm all about science now so this is going to be an experiment of sorts. Stay tuned...and don't forget to check out Sassy.  Her site is AWESOME!!!  I just received some salad recipes and videos of her creating the salads and making various dressings.  They sure look yummy!  She grinds a variety of seeds in a coffee grinder and adds those to her salads to add a POW.  I definitely will be checking out the Good Will to see if I can find a coffee grinder sans a high price tag! LOL.  Adios Muchachos.

But this is not the end my friends!  I desire to be a LIFE LONG LEARNER so my quest for knowledge and improving myself continues.  I wish to bring more to the world as I absorb more spiritually and intellectually.  I have dreams...hopes...Its not over until God says its over.  And you know what?  Even though I decided to leave college 40 years ago to pursue a career, travel, have my children, even helped them go on to college and cared for my dear sweet Mother until her passing, I am THRILLED that I went back to school NOW.  My brain is feeling more energized and alive than ever, though I am in my mature years, LOL.  I may even be more focused, determined, confident and just happier to be there than I was 40 years ago so here is my advice to you.  No matter what age you are now...go to college or go to college again.  There are more career possibilities out there now that were not there before.  By learning new things, reading, meeting new people,driving a different direction to work you are helping the neurological cells in your brain transmit the electrical charges to the dendrites so stimulation can occur.  This helps to deter dementia and other cognitive disorders.  Hey, I didn't know all of that before college. hahaha  Love you and thank you for all your prayers and encouragement.  Big shoutout to all of my Professors and to my niece Lu! Thank you Heavenly Father once again for all of your mercy and grace, protection and provision...for giving me such loving parents that instilled a desire to work and learn in me and for the fruit of my loins Shae, Beranda and Micah.  I so appreciate how you lift me up daily.  Thank you Darrick, Dejae, Dominique, and Shun for being a part of my life and allowing me to be a part of yours. Blessings to all.

Jim Leverenz - So Long For Now Dear Friend

Bless his heart and may he rest in peace
A dear man that was sincere and sweet
LOVED his family and all of his friends
One of those that are true blue to the bitter end

Congestive heart failure plagued him at times
But one rarely heard a complaint he'd say, "I'm fine"
Truly loved God and shared the word with others
Embraced my children and me as a single mother

Oh how he enjoyed eating out and grocery deals
He knew his way around the kitchen & prepared great meals
Jim loved baseball, TV, and Internet video games
Now that he is gone, life won't be the same

But thanks to our Loving Father in Heaven above
I am greatful for knowing someone that truly loved
He made the most of every single day
And I wish him God speed as he travels a Heavenly way

He also loved choirs and I hope he now hears
The angels singing his favorites the closer he draws near
I will miss you Dear Friend but I must truly say
I look forward to seeing you again in the hereafter some day

Say, "Hello" to my sweet father and my loving mother-dear
You were so kind to visit her & I believe she knew you were near
But now you all are together and can celebrate new life stress free
For you are in the arms of  the Precious One, Jesus, &  there's no other place I'd rather be

Bless Each and Every One of You in The New Year

I can't help thinking of me dear, sweet Mommy at this time.  It has only been 7 months since I kissed her loving face.  I miss her so much.  She was my best friend.  I am so grateful to the Heavenly Father for the hope of Heaven.  Just knowing my parents are with Him and that I will see my parents again helps me to go on.  I am scheduled to graduate from college in May.  It will be bitter sweet as that is the month that Mom went to be with the Lord.  But I know she would be proud of me and I do believe she and Daddy are right by my side in spirit.


Photo by prettymsbThis year has been very hard on me in many ways, so other than thinking of my Mom, I am looking forward to moving on.   My little grand baby, Kalaya, just turned 1 and boy or boy is she a barrel of fun, so smart.  She walks so fast, knows sign language and a bit of Spanish.  What a little wonder.  I am loving being a Student Ambassador and an officer for Phi Theta Kappa.  I have met some of the greatest people at Tri-C.  I do believe this will be one of my best semesters as I will be studying Ethics and Humanities. I am excited about these.

It is simply our duty to be obedient.  I have enjoyed greeting visitors and students at Tri-C, patrons at Cain Park, The Dobama Theatre and at Tri-C's Performing Arts Theatre.  I have so enjoyed the training via the Playhouse Square and the Art class at the  Cleveland Art Museum this year. I was so thrilled by all I learned, that just yesterday I went there with my daughter Shae, who was visiting from the DC area.  I was proud to share with her all that I learned.  We ate at their phenomenal  Provenance Cafe!  Just 12 weeks ago, I didn't even know what that word meant.  LOL.

And my husband and I are about to celebrate our second Wedding Anniversary on Valentine's Day!  We are still getting to know each other and I am so happy we are together.  I am praying for the Lord to give us the opportunity to take a wonderful tropical vacation together in 2013.  We both need it and he has never flown before so I am looking forward to sharing that experience with him. 

Well, I do wish you all the best for the New Year.  If you are missing your loved one, I pray for the Holy Spirit to comfort you with beautiful memories.  If you have lost a job, lost housing, are feeling extremely financially challenged, have dealt with repeated illness, are looking forward to all this New Year can bring...know that I am right with you.  Let's pray for each other.  Never give up. All things are TRULY possible in Christ Jesus and I am so thankful to know Him as my Lord and Saviour.

Bless you always.  Hey, check out the Monday Motivator by Gail Blanke.  She truly inspires me and I posted her info her info on The Mom Squad Blog for 95.5 The Fish. Enjoy!

The Bible Teaches Us To......
Praise the Heavenly Father even when things don't seem to be going our way
Pray for those that might be considered our enemies
Remember His promises are true...for He, unlike man, can be trusted at all times
Seek and we will find
Knock and the door will be opened
Ask...He knows the desires of your heart...but just Ask...He wants to hear from you.
~    ~    ~    ~    ~    ~
I am speaking to myself this day as I also share these words with you.  His blessings shine upon us each day.  Let us take the time to embrace Him, thank Him and to recognize Him.  May you always remember, He IS with you ALWAYSSSS...
