Breathing-Fragile-Life change choice Joan Winifred

Asking for it and not asking for it: the life of kitty-cats? ME ow! :)

 Many who used to behave like fierce animals have changed their personality. This dramatic change was foretold in a Bible prophecy. (Read Isaiah 11:6, 7.) We read there about wild animals, such as wolves and lions, who live in peace with domestic animals, such as lambs and calves. Why would they have peace? The prophecy continues: “Because the earth will certainly be filled with the knowledge of Jehovah.” (Isaiah 11:9) [excerpted w 18 my green highlight]

“knowledge of Jehovah” aka True God of Compassion…a progressive compassion education of positive changes…acting with agape & compassion helps all-us-fellow-fragile-breathing-life live together/get along in Peace:)

 

Eccl. 9:4:  There is hope for whoever is among the living, because a live dog is better off than a dead lion.

Practical commentary on above verse: [excerpted How to Achieve True Success AWAKE! 2014]

WHAT IT MEANS. If you work secularly, your job should be part of your life—but not your whole life. Really, how successful will you feel if you are at the top of your profession but lose your health or the respect of your family? People who are truly successful endeavor to keep their work, health, and family life in proper balance.

WHAT YOU CAN DO. Take care of yourself. Get proper rest. There is little benefit in becoming a workaholic who sacrifices everything—health, family, and friendships—for false success.

Discretion (can) mean(s) being spiritually awake and vigilant(.)! (& at all times…in the light/dark)

O. M. F. Optimization for Multiple Functioning

Are You a “seeing skeleton” ?!

(not sure (and no time to research) IF i’ve already shared this here (aka this blog previously))…

Check it out at YOUR OWN RISK…of seeing/(understanding) better…

THE reef-dwelling brittle star has an amazing form of armor on its upper surface. This part of its skeleton is studded with microscopic lenses that turn the animal’s armor into a compound eye.

According to chemist Joanna Aizenberg, the brittle star’s dual-purpose shell “demonstrates an important principle: in biology, materials are often optimized for multiple functions.

[…]researchers have devised a simple, low-cost method of producing arrays of microlenses made of calcium carbonate. The many applications of these arrays include telecommunications, where they are used to conduct light signals through optical fibers. [excerpted past/recent reading/peering…The Seeing Skeleton of the Brittle Star–Was It Designed? (by God) AWAKE! May 2013]

Brittle thinking lacks tensile strength…(and now and again may be ? we all need an antacid;)  perhaps (a) 1 life lesson…we can make the most of things…efficiency and speed…is found in not sweating the small stuff (follow-through on the small stuff, (but don’t let it hinder progress long-term)) and …when we can effectively tackle the microscopic…may be we see/understand the macroscopic…

practical verse:

The person faithful in what is least is faithful also in much, and the person unrighteous in what is least is unrighteous also in much. (Luke 16:10)

Multiple/Flexible Functioning…optimizing wellness:  spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically…:)
