Yay! Yay! Hooray:)

Breathing-Fragile-Life comfort contentment Joan Winifred joy justice parenting

Guess who? Got Hot Coco… with mini marshmellows!!:)…”mellow” out:), ya, i know, it’s technically spelled “marshmallow”… IDK IF? it’s a “New England” (Somerville, Massachusetts) thing (accent) or a kid thing, but have been saying “marshMELLOWS” my whole life (in and out of Massachusetts)… either way–it’s YUMMY and sweet!! to me…a favorite cold weather treat… that brings back warm, happy, childhood (and Other) memories playing in snow, etc. (Thank You Chato for my Coco!)

When You have offspring (kids/teens), it’s fun to relive/share some healthy/in moderation (healthy for body/mind) stuff with them.

Isn’t hot coco suppose to be good for you?!;) (in moderation and IF no food/lactose intolerances or Diabetes, etc.) please, do your own research…i am enJOYing mine right now…

Sip, sip… wouldn’t it be nice IF everyone experiencing cold weather today had access to some hot coco with mini marshmallows or big marshmellows…IF they wanted some?!:) Wouldn’t it be wonderful to live in a world where everyone’s (healthy) needs are met appropriately and at the appropriate time?!

Perhaps, when we could all share (more) and care (more) and study compassion and unselfishly live it… there would be enough of everything for everyone earth-wide!:)

Momentary thrills and Life-time disabilities

clean compassion conscientious-ness healing insights Joan Winifred joy mind food moderation

Heard this sobering point made in a thought-provoking talk… “some of us give up a LOT to gain a little or lose a lot for very little.”

A ? for reflection…[what am i potentially forfeiting? (And why? Is it worth it?)]

For example…a recent read: (my highlight)

VIEW YOUR BODY AND YOUR LIFE AS PRECIOUS GIFTS. “By [God] we have life and move and exist.” (Acts 17:28) Appreciating that fact moves us to avoid taking needless risks, whether we are at work, driving, or choosing our recreation. A momentary thrill is not worth a life of disability!

Respect Earth, Respect Body… don’t pollute!:)

DO NOT POLLUTE YOUR BODY. “Let us cleanse ourselves of every defilement of flesh and spirit.” (2 Corinthians 7:1) People defile their bodies when they chew or smoke tobacco or abuse alcohol or drugs. Smoking, for example, “leads to disease and disability and harms nearly every organ of the body,” says the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

BE “MODERATE IN HABITS.” (1 Timothy 3:2, 11) Habitually eating or drinking to excess is obviously bad for our health​—not to mention our finances! “Do not be among those who drink too much wine, among those who gorge themselves on meat, for a drunkard and a glutton will come to poverty.”​—Proverbs 23:20, 21. [excerpts: Awake No. 1 2018, The Way of Happiness/Physical Health & Resilience

 All the so-called “gift” giving and “merry” making this time of year… is it actually healthy for the body or the Earth??

{Personally, am not into “compulsory” forced-giving, over-commercialism, and over-indulgences.}

Real Peace & Good Cheer… is found in living moderation!:)

Sunday Shades of Nuanced Satisfaction

attitude compassion hope Joan Winifred joy never giving up!

Sunday is usually a favorite day of mine…a day of spiritual opportunity for reflection/contemplation/meditation/

association with like-minded ones…
i’ve tried my best to be at peace with all-fellow-fragile-life (crossing my path in any manner of crossing i.e. on and off-line) and to be as generous as possible within the framework of my limitations…(though imperfectly and with God’s help, of course). (and Of course, i still need to make changes/adjustments in my attitude/speech and not complain about trivial stuff that aggravates me!!…yep, i am very much a continued work in progress!!)

(maintaining peace with Others aka trying to be helpful, kind, compassionate, and giving and forgiving…etc.)

nuanced satisfaction…or feeling like you tried your best on most fronts or at least the ones in your limited control…(i.e. the daily expected) and unexpected and tried to be a friend to all-fellow-fragile-life…and do my best to help and serve Other fellow-life when/if i am needed within the context of my present situation…aka puny role i play in this life…

just trying to live agape love..to the best of my knowledge and know-how…(and “hopefully” without offending or hurting Other-Fellow-Fragile-Life in my process of compassion growth). IF You have been offended…i am SORRY!

PEACE fellow-sufferer(s)…:) Take comfort in trying…(to live unselfish compassion) to the best of your abilities.

today this afternoon 9/3/17

&Partial lyrics to a Beautiful Song…recently discovered:

A heart full of questions, a life so unsure,
I heard what you told me; I wanted more.

What you told me, I wanted more.

Unanswered questions were answered that day.

The worry I was feeling melted away.

All my worries faded away.

It’s a long road we’re going down,

But faith can make things happen.

When there’s no way through and no way round,

Faith can make things happen,

Make things happen.

2. I love what I’m learning and share what I know.
I’m ready and waiting, so here I go.

Yes, I’m ready

To share what I know.

My faith is like a fire that burns within my heart.

I’ve got to keep it burning and do my part.

Keep it burning deep in my heart.

9/3/17 @8:07 p.m.

p.s. i also have “faith” in You Reader:)…that You will continue to do the compassionate thing (regardless of any unjust/seemingly unfair treatment by the many or by the few)…even when no one is watching…or completely appreciates what You do or who You are…

God Knows…
beautiful hearts
like
Yours:)
