Thank You:) for Reading …in case it isn’t obvious:

i am NO hula hooper. 😉 lol

(figuratively speaking)

An imperfect observation by me:  i can be “fussy” at times myself…we all have our preferences, and moody/ier days, eh?:)

however…i try to be forgiving and considerate of Others’, their feelings, etc.  and cooperate within a healthy reasonable spectrum…to keep the peace.  And, we all have our limitations and consciences. i know, personally, couldn’t demand/insist on Anyone breaking their conscience in some matter micro or macro…(on my behalf).

We all have our individual thresholds for being comfortable and uncomfortable. I respect that.

Some of us (perhaps sick? unreasonable? fierce? ignorant? too proud?) people are impossible/beyond pleasing; You “kindly” jump through one or two hoops, in good faith, then they unmercilessly require series of hoops and jumps…unending.

gimme a break…”not open to any agreement” is a negative trait interestingly described 2 Timothy 3:1-5: (my highlights)

But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here.  For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal,  having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness,  betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God,  having an appearance of godliness but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.

So, just want to encourage any Reader:) do Your Best. Trying to Please (some) People is futile! I am no people pleaser.

I’ve found it much easier and conscience healing to please Yahweh–God of True LOVE…by trying to be forgiving, loving, giving, and genuinely-compassionate to all crossing my path…and not overly-critical, harsh and i.m.p.o.s.s.i.b.l.e. to make comfortable/happy/pleased.

questions for self-reflections:

Am i hard to make comfortable? Do i have unrealistic expectations?

am i hurting so much that i am hurting Others? Am i reasonable in my dealings with Others?

do i show fellow-feeling? and agape love/respect to all my fellow-life?

BTW: this is an honest/TRUTH FULL piece of prose..(my blog/this site) is NOT a work of fiction. i am a LEGIT person, with a LEGIT name, though Joan Winifred…i use as my “pen” name, which is my “actual” first two names given me by my parents, (what were they thinking, eh?:)

I am a female…born. I am a Mother…real since ’99, ’01, ’03, ’05  (4 offspring; 1 boy, 3 girls–vaginal births; married since ’91 to Chato/Father of said offspring). Soon to be 50. I am a legit work in progress. 🙂 Very spiritually minded. My Primary Loyalty Yahweh; meaning i love everyone else less than True God of bible revealed name Yahweh/Jehovah. (My “True” Friends accept this unreservedly about me.) And I Love Humans A VERY LOT!! which try to demonstrate by living genuine-unselfish-compassion everyday toward all life even—when very difficult— involving self-sacrifice and pain!! Favorite Books–Bible.

Learner of Fun and relaxation…and Mandarin among other languages.

Legit: Boring. Not a Quitter. Lover of Truth; Pursuer of Peace and Living Moderation in most things except study and love!:)

may be those are not humble self-descriptions, huh?

anyway trying my best…”hammering” things out…🙂 lol

Encouraging reading today:

He will not judge by what appears to his eyes, nor reprove simply according to what his ears hear. He will judge the lowly with fairness, and with uprightness he will give reproof.​—Isa. 11:3, 4.

Jehovah preserved the Law covenant for us in his Word, the Bible. He wants us, not to obsess over the details of the Law, but to discern and apply its “weightier matters,” the lofty principles that underpin its commandments. (Matt. 23:23) The Mosaic Law reflected a “framework of the knowledge and of the truth” about Jehovah and his righteous principles. (Rom. 2:20) The cities of refuge, for example, teach […] how to “judge with true justice,” and they teach all of us how to “deal with one another in loyal love and mercy.” (Zech. 7:9) [excerpted Imitate Jehovah’s Justice & Mercy w 2017]

Operating Under the Influence

attitude choice conscientious-ness courage education God happiness healing humility insights Joan Winifred knowledge logic mind food moderation never giving up! peace positive qualities science & spirituality spiritual food study things i learned transformation trust Truth wisdom

Under what influence(s) am i truly operating?!

Operating under the influence of: not much sleep, a 5 a.m. alarm clock, pain, aging, a female biology, a feminine physique…Wind, weather (literal and emotional), cooler FL temps, kids, tea, hubby, love…etc., etc., etc! (this morning)…and the inevitable(?) unspecified etc…of the near unforeseeable.

None of us are e-n-t-i-r-e-l-y influence-free or totally free thinkers/doers! (For the accurate record, this blog/(my writings) is not under the influence of money, and never has been).

Still standing!

YAY!:)…for now.;)

My daughter ‘snapped’ goofy pics of “Mother” (as she calls me) in wind-poofy poncho, comfy-practical, old-lady, slipper-sneakers this morning.;)…to be 13 again or going on 50?! I’ll take 50; thanks.

{IDK, what does it say about me/her that she is choosing to refer to me as “Mother” and not mom, mommy nor mama and definitely not MA?! She’s growing up fast.}

Don’t wanna do over of middle school. Though, parenting children through all the ever-changing phases and fleeting stages feels like reliving my earlier life; yet with greater insight and not as blindly.

O.perating U.nder I.nfluence

Aka “OUI”, Yes! “We” are all operating under influence of one “KIND”(?) or another.

The real questions to deeply consider/contemplate/ruminate regarding influence:

who or what is influencing me?? (and why? why not?)

am i ‘s.e.l.e.c.t.i.v.e.’ about my influence(s)??

ultimately ‘any’ influences boil down to: positive/negative/unhealthy/healthy:

is this influence having positive or negative results in my life??

am i having a “positive” or “negative” influence on the lives of Others : off & on-line??

how do i reduce and eliminate the negative/unhealthy influence for better results in my life??…physically, mentally, emotionally, psychologically, spiritually?

Like wind—the mind/body is f~l~e~x~i~b~l~e. Changing. I may not be able to avoid wind altogether, but i don’t have to chase a tornado around or hunt a hurricane (and on purpose).

When/IF crossing street, i can get out of the way…of a big truck.

Nor must i subject/submit my mind to hate and poison under the guise of remaining open-minded and/or tolerant…(as a learner or person who loves learning).

I can choose to let certain information into my mind and I can choose not to dwell on certain information.

“Stop being molded by this system of things.”​—ROMANS 12:2.

Who am i allowing to mold my mind?? Why should they/You have such power of influence over me?? What “positive” example is this influence/person setting??

Oh yeah, sounds good?? open-minded?!

may be?! on the surface…is being well-accurately educated/informed seemingly mean…just let me read/listen to everything/all the media/so-called “news” “translated” to English (my native tongue/heart language) from around the world…this will supposedly broaden my “knowledge” understanding of real reality?…of what…exactly? an additional/supplemental diet of poisonous propaganda?! Is a diet consisting of eating twice or thrice as much or more actually “better” for me?!

Lies, hurtful & murderous ideologies circulate (and through the centuries of humans’ bloody history)…many recycled and repackaged (and implemented) at fast speed via various platforms…yet when practiced/digested ending with evidence—-similar “sick” patterns of unhealthy/hurtful manifestations…i.e., disease and DEATH.

Yep, am gonna be careful and cautious as to what i eat by mouth and by mind!

My food energizes/enables me…and for what lifestyle?? (Love & Peace?!)

I AM KEEPING MY INTEGRITY (and what fuels it)!:)

Yep, there are those who hate integrity-keepers!

(Too bad. They’re NOT getting/taking/chaining my mind!…away from me.)

I AM NOT A ROBOT!! I AM NOT THEIR SLAVE!!..I AM NOT GOING TO BE MISLED INTO MIND-BODY CONFORMING TO POPULAR-STUPID-FALSE-HURTFUL-HATEFUL-DAMAGING-IDEAS PROPAGATED BY THE ILL-INFORMED AND ILL-INDOCTRINATED/ILL-EDUCATED!!

For example, i know/believe beyond doubt: male and female biologically live/inhabit Earth. End of story: sperm & egg equally needed/important for reproduction of human life.

Illustrations read: re: Parents & God/Higher Authority: (my neon highlights)

Parents endeavor to instill in their children good values. They may teach them to be honest, industrious, and considerate of others. This is not overly restrictive. Rather, the parents are preparing them for a successful life as independent adults. When the children grow up and leave home, they will be free to make their own choices. If they choose to live within the values that they learned from their parents, they will be more likely to make decisions that they will not later regret. As a result, they will be free from many self-induced troubles and anxieties.

Like a good parent, Yahweh/Jehovah wants his children to have the most fulfilling life possible. (Isa. 48:17, 18) He therefore provides basic principles for moral conduct and for behavior toward others. In such matters he invites us to cultivate his very way of thinking and to share his values. Far from constraining us, this enhances, elevates, and expands our thinking ability. (Ps. 92:5; Prov. 2:1-5; Isa. 55:9) It helps us make choices that lead to happiness while still allowing us to blossom as individuals. (Ps. 1:2, 3) Yes, thinking like Jehovah is beneficial and desirable!

 A person might seek to improve his health by eating food that is nutritious. But of what value would that be if he is also ingesting regular doses of contaminated food?

[excerpted reading: “Who Molds Your Thinking?”  w November 2018]

Yes, i want “my” ‘thinking ability to be enhanced, ELEVATED, and

e-x-panded!!’🙂

Doors Open & Close

choice communication conscientious-ness courage Joan Winifred spiritual food wisdom

Good counsel for an EXTRAextravert like me;) to consider at various & prudent times…

Station a guard for my mouth, O Jehovah,

Do set a watch over the door of my lips. (Song/Psalm 141:3)

practical commentary i enJOYed reading re: said verse: & Job’s ‘Job’…aka integrity-keeping example: (btw: “Yahweh” Hebrew and English “Jehovah” God’s revealed ‘personal’ name found in the Bible.)

Strike his bone and flesh, and he will surely curse you to your very face.​—Job 2:5.

The Devil’s challenge no doubt aroused indignation, anger, and contempt among heavenly creatures loyal to God. Jehovah, however, did not react hastily. His response was measured and entirely fitting. He has been slow to anger and has been just in dealing with Satan’s revolt. (Ex. 34:6; Job 2:2-6) Why? Jehovah has allowed time to pass because he does not want anyone to be destroyed but “desires all to attain to repentance.” (2 Pet. 3:9) Jehovah’s exercise of self-control teaches us that we too ought to weigh our words and consider our steps carefully; we should not rush into things. When you face an important issue, give yourself the time you need to act wisely. Pray for wisdom to say or do the right thing. (Ps. 141:3) In the heat of the moment, it is all too easy to react emotionally. Many of us have lived to regret hasty words or rash actions!​—Prov. 14:29; 15:28; 19:2.

[excerpted: Cultivate Self-Control w September 2017]

Avoiding (heated) hasty words & rash (dash) actions is a wise/integrity-keeping course in any situation (including unexpected events), eh?!

Happy Friday🙂 & Week-end!

helping/hurting hurting/helping…difficult, at times, to distinguish between.

h = hoping this blog is helping You Reader. 🙂

interesting recent reread: i’ve learned a lot from “David” (a man with an agreeable heart)…always loved archaeology…as kid wanted to be archaeologist..(1 among top 3 inclinations)..loved digging around in the dirt discovering hidden treasures…still like to dig..digging deeply to discover “Truth” treasure!!🙂 My tools different, but i keep my hands clean, eh?!

According to the Bible, King David of Israel lived in the 11th century B.C.E. and his descendants ruled for hundreds of years. But some critics have argued that David is a myth, a tribal legend created much later. Was King David a real person?

In 1993, archaeologist Avraham Biran and his team discovered a stone fragment at Tel Dan, northern Israel, bearing an inscription that refers to the “House of David.” The inscription, in an ancient Semitic script, dates to the ninth century B.C.E. It was evidently part of a monument erected by the Aramaeans, boasting of victories over the Israelites.

An article in Bible History Daily states: “The ‘House of David’ inscription had its skeptics . . . However, most Biblical scholars and archaeologists readily accepted that the Tel Dan stela had supplied the first concrete proof of a historical King David from the Bible, making it one of the top Biblical archaeology discoveries reported in BAR [Biblical Archaeology Review].”
