Dance heals. Dance inspires. Dance touches you in ways that nothing else can. Dance has been a lifesaver for me because without it, fibromyalgia would be kicking my tail. But with dance on my side, I am kicking fibro’s butt on a daily basis. Do yourself a favor. Put on some music and let yourself go! Go out dancing. Take a dance class.
Just. Get. Moving.

We’ve all got opinions on Bruce Jenner, and here is one that I absolutely love. Thanks for making me think about this from a different angle, Casey Darnell.

Sergio Espinoza has been battling Brain Cancer (an aggressive glioblastoma) since January 2014 when he had to undergo brain surgery the day before his 50th birthday to remove a Stage 4 malignant tumor. Luckily, the surgery went better than expected and he was able to start the long and difficult process of receiving Chemotherapy and Radiation. Both treatments have not only caused physical and emotional suffering, but financial struggles as well. Due to the radiation being focused on a specific part of his brain, he has frequent seizures, causing him to be unable to be alone most of the day or to drive; the chemotherapy has also physically just left our father drained of any remaining energy.
This family has put out a call for help and we can all do something. Send this family prayers, love and most practical, make a donation. This has turned their lives upside down and they need all the support we can give them.
Please visit this link to make a donation, no matter how small. http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/please-help-sergio-espinoza-fight-stage-4-brain-cancer/286436
Every little bit will give this family some financial relief during this physically, mentally and financially difficult time.

How many times have you been around a couple and felt soooooo uncomfortable because of how they interacted with each other? Either the wife talked down to the husband, or the husband made disrespectful comments to or about the wife or they were arguing in front of you like you weren’t even there?
I received this wonderful e-mail from an amazing man. I just had to share:
I John 2:15 “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge….” (Hosea 4:6)The news past weeks has focused on a group calling themselves the “Guardians of Peace” who hacked into Sony’s data and stole emails, some of which they subsequently made available to the media. The hacker group threatened more actions if the movie, “The Interview” was not withdrawn from being shown in theaters.
Sony’s movie “The Interview” which has a plot involving the assassination of President Kim Jong-Un of North Korea was forced to withdraw its showing because major theaters feared possible retribution because of hacker threats believed to originate from North Korea. Sony is now allowing some independent theaters to show the film over the holiday season, and it is also being made available online.
There is a more serious and dangerous situation occurring in the world beside what is seemingly generated by Hollywood. It is amazing that a movie about a petty, deranged dictator is capturing the attention of everyone when many more troubles affecting millions of people are going on right now.
Isis is cutting off the heads of children and raping and enslaving young girls. They are taking advantage of the racial unrest in the United States, and they are recruiting young men and women in Ferguson to go and fight for the Islamic State. They and other Islamic groups like them are corrupting youth in the U.S., Canada, Britain, and all through Europe.
Our newspapers or broadcasts on radio and television in the United States do not tend to report this to any great degree. Consequently, many who follow the news and sincerely want a grasp of what is happening in the world no longer read the local newspapers or watch the network produced news programs. Most young adults if they really care about the news go to the internet, and if one searches, it is there.
More and more people in the United States live in a vacuum and the world they see around them is a world made up by Hollywood and the media. The mega media-complex when it is coordinated and cohesive has the power to stir up resentment, hatred, and even violence, or create cooperation and peace. This is wickedness.
And this is the world we live in today. I John 2:15 tells us: Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
The prophet Hosea wrote: “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge….” (Hosea 4:6) What are we thinking about or what’s on our minds???
We cannot close our eyes or shut our ears to the news of the world, but we must not buy into much of the fluff and hype produced in the midst of it all. Rather, those things should irritate our souls as it did Lot and and others through the ages.
I know God’s people are quite aware of the times even as the Apostle Paul wrote in I Thes. 5:1 “But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you.MAY GOD BLESS U, ALWAYS…
