Every day is not the same. Some days you're motivated, while some days you just want to trudge past it. Every time I'm having one of those dreadful days, I do something different like wear a new nose pin, wear something different to work, wing my liner a little, do my hair in a new way, etc. But it's not always easy to do something different with your hair coz let's face it, most of us do not know which partition goes where and do not even get me started about all the baby ha by bobbie

Dandelion, to me, is one of the more important spring herbs we can get to know. The different parts of dandelion will support the health of poultry in many different ways as I have found through my years of experience using it with poultry. The dandelions are proficient right now in my environment, and probably in yours as well. It is so common, that I think people tend to overlook it. I encourage you to get to know this herb better, especially for what it can do for you flock. by allisonn

THIS IS WORTH KEEPING AND READING FREQUENTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Written by a 90 Year Old..... This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!! Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio . "To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more: 1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.. 2. When in doubt, just take the next small step. 3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. 4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch. 5. Pay off your credit cards every month. 6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree. 7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone. 8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it. 9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck. 10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile. 11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present. 12. It's OK to let your children see you cry. 13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it. 15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks. 16. Take a deep breath It calms the mind. 17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful. 18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger. 19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else. 20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer. 21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special. 22. Over prepare, then go with the flow. 23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple. 24. The most important sex organ is the brain. 25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you. 26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words :'In five years, will this matter?' 27. Always choose life.. 28. Forgive everyone everything. 29. What other people think of you is none of your business. 30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time. 31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 33. Believe in miracles. 34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do. 35. Don't audit life.. Show up and make the most of it now. 36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young. 37. Your children get only one childhood. 38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved. 39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere. 40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back. 41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. 42. The best is yet to come... 43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 44. Yield. 45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift." by eluthrea

When somebody asks you, "what do you do?", what do you answer with? Most people fill the other individual in with their occupation and line of work. Is that what defines you? It is interesting how people choose to answer this question. Many people confuse their "profession" with their "life". I assure you, they are two different things. by marietta

What do you do when God calls you? Do you Look for excuses not to go? Maybe you tell God you're occupied with your business, with your family or professional matters. No problem, God will call others and you'll continue with your business as usual. However, you are the one who loses the blessing. I'm not talking about punishment or going to hell, or anything like it. Losing the blessing is what happens to the child that doesn't do what the father asks. He is still the Child, but the other child that does what the father asks, has his blessing. Jesus told the story of a man who prepared a great feast and sent out many invitations, but they all began making excuses and that man still filled his house but with other people. That passage is in Luke 14:15-24. Do not miss the blessing of participating in the great banquet in the Kingdom of God. When He calls, you should respond quickly and without excuses. Now go and get your blessing. by isabel123
