Life's Treasures

What gems have you put into your Life's Treasure Box? We need to collect the type of gems that cannot be washed away in a life storm or stolen by a thief. Family, virtue, love, worthiness, trust, integrity, and loyalty to correct principles are the type of gems that cannot be taken from us. Those are the type of gems that I have collected, and I hope you are presently collecting. Otherwise, anything else can be lost and leave you feeling empty and without value.

Welcome to My Treasure Box of Gems!

Tell Me Why

September 5, 2011

Re-Post from: http://whatmatterstoday.com/2011/09/05/tell-me-why/

*Tell me why We live in a world where people care about nothing but themselves and what they want. What has happened to us as the human race. We haven’t always been like this have we? I thought we used to help people in our communities when they needed help raising a barn or a house?

*Didn’t we used to show up to help when crops needed to be planted and/or harvested because the man died or was physically unable to do it himself.

*Tell me why we have become a society with the bad attitude of  “What can you do for me” or “What can the government do for me . . . not what can I do for others?”

*Tell me why it’s about welfare and social programs we get from government instead of depending on family, friends, and churches? Why can’t communities work together with business to take care of their own?

*Tell me why we are no longer interested in being self-reliant by sewing and repairing clothing, preparing for winter by canning and preserving food in times of plenty, by cooking at home instead of going out, by gardening fruits and vegetables from our own yards, and by having a “savings account” to make ends meet instead of sitting around expecting to take from other’s pockets when they have planned and prepared for themselves? Do we not see something wrong with this attitude? We should!

*Tell me why we forget that working hard to make our way through life or that fulfilling dreams can be achieved when we work hard and do it right?

*Tell me Why have we forgotten that we can change our own stars when we believe in ourselves?

We were created to need each other and to give our talents and skills to help people who need what we can give.

The “Parable of the Talents” is all about taking what you have and multiplying it by giving to others instead of keeping it to ourselves. We are blessed beyond measure when we do. Giving is not just for the benefactor, the person who receives, but it is for the giver as well. Remember the warmth we feel inside inside when we see the twinkling eyes and smiling faces of those who benefited from our good deed?  That feeling  is priceless and can only be felt when we give of ourselves.

This music video showed us why we need to change. It is very touching!!!! I believe you will enjoy it as much as I do. It is done by a very gifted young man named Declan Galbraith and titled: Tell me why [ with lyrics].

Enjoy the music and then please, contemplate on what you can do personally to help us change ourselves and then the world around us!!

Parental Abuse Support Line

May 7, 2010

Safe in Gods Hands Support Line

Date:
Thursday, May 13, 2010
Time:
9:00pm – 11:00pm

DESCRIPTION

The rise of parent abuse has many parents feeling too ashamed to get the help they need. If your teen is violent, don’t minimize the problem. Face it head on.

Perhaps the biggest obstacles to overcoming parent abuse are shame and blame. If your teen is violent (hitting, threatening, intimidating, name-calling, shoving, etc.) it’s tough to even think about getting help because acknowledging or naming the problem is painful.

To make matters worse, once parents that are suffering abuse find the courage to reach out they often do not find the help they need. Instead they find blame; “this is your fault because you are a bad parent.”

It is no wonder that parent abuse – an increasingly common problem – is not often talked about or adequately addressed.

If you are suffering abuse at the hands of your son or daughter, please know this:

You are not alone again. Although the problem isn’t often talked about, it does exist and it is increasingly common. Blaming is not the answer or even a useful response to the problem.

Please join the support line this next week. Even if you are not being abused yourself, you may know someone who is being abused and you can learn how to help her.

If you have a story that you would like to share with our readers, please feel free to share it with us. Tell everyone you know about this superb support group.

I know this beautiful woman who is putting on this group help line and I know the trouble she has been through. I attest with assurance that she is genuine and knows what she is talking about. I know she can help you.

Easter Season

April 4, 2010

Easter is the season to remember our Savior died for us that we might live again and to take upon himself all of our sins and imperfections.

Easter is also the season that represents new birth and spring. . . with eggs, chicks, bunnies, and chocolate.

Protect Family and Life

February 22, 2010

Family and Treasuring Life are the type of gems we need to protect in our society today. The plan of the evil adversary is to separate the family, separate children from parents, separate people from God and righteousness, and cause a cloud over our understanding of right and wrong. Today, we worship the gods of pleasure, lust, and self-indulgence. We need to protect our children and our own mental health from these terrible influences.

Please share this video with everyone on your email list.  It has an important message.

Contentment In The Soul

February 8, 2010

I want you to know that, from childhood to now, I have a very close relationship with my Father in Heaven and His son Jesus Christ; who is my Savior, Priest, and King.

I love the Lord with all My heart, might, mind, and strength. He atoned for the sins of the world and for mine as well; for all of my imperfections and mistakes.

Also, I love Him because He broke the bounds of death and the grave through resurrection. I know that through Him I can become sanctified and live with Him and my Heavenly Father when I leave this earth. Knowing these things gives me joy and solace in the mist of the evils that surround me today.

Because of the Lord’s teachings and those of His prophets, I know the pathway to God. I know how I must live to be happy and to feel content with my life. I don’t even want to think about what my life would be like if I had not known these things and lived my life according to the plan that my Father in Heaven has for me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My mission is to help people find peace in their souls by following the correct principles that reward them with peace of mind, joy, and happiness. I know that when we try to live this life according to our own makings and our own design, we WILL NOT find peace of mind, joy, and happiness to the extent that we could if we had followed the Lord’s Plan for us.

I’ve learned that we can continue doing what we have always done, and we can make the mistakes that do not provide peace and contentment in the soul, but then the lessons we are supposed to learn will continue to be put in front of us until we learn them. This is a Universal Truth!

In other words, until we learn the lessons we are supposed to learn and make changes in our lives resulting in rewards that make us happy, the Universe will continue to serve up the lessons we need to learn until we finally figure it out and change. Laws within the Universe are fixed and unchangeable. Therefore, they are not subject to interpretation and manipulation in order to fit our circumstances. The truth of the matter is that “It is what it is” and we can resist and be miserable or comply and have peace in our souls; I choose peace!

Denying there is a God and that Universal Laws exist will not change a thing. Whether you believe or accept that they exist does not negate the consequence of your noncompliance. Compliance rewards us with the blessings our souls can depend on when life’s storms rage about us. Noncompliance , however, always has consequences that take us away from the blessings for which we yearn to have but only evade us.

One thing I do know for sure is that it is NOT wise to be in conflict with God and the Universe. Otherwise, life will just become harsher and more challenging in order to gain our attention. This is necessary in order for us to make the comment to live our lives differently. So go ahead and resist changing, continue to live life according to your own rules and see how far that gets you!

A Beautiful Spiritual Message

Thanks for your support

August 2, 2009

I just wanted to report to those of you who loyally drop in occassionally to know that I appreciate you. I am not working on this site at a regular basis because I have others I’m doing on the same theme of families. Go check out the others if you haven’t already. They are http://myhummingbirdcafe.com, http://familybasics.wordpress.com, and http://mytreasureboxseries.wordpress.com.

I also have a political site http://OurdaysReports.wordpress.com that I use to vent my frustrations on what is going on in the news politically. Someone needs to say something.  Along those lines, I have http://DemiseofAmerica.wordpress.com and http://FaceofAmerica.wordpress.com.

Now one last word I would like to report on and that is HR 875 and Senate bill 425 that have to do with controlling our ability to grow our own food. It is unbelievable. In fact, if you are as concerned as I am you need to check those political sites I mentioned because there are some very informative information there and plenty of good videos to explain it all.

Once again, thanks for stopping by and for your loyalty.
