ManвЂ™s best friend may be you hearts best friend. Yes that was a dog you saw going down the hospital hallway.
Scientist carefully monitored heart patientвЂ™s response to visits from a volunteer alone, a volunteer with a therapeutic dog and to no visits. Patients visited by a volunteer alone had a 10% drop in their anxiety level, those visited by a volunteer and a dog had a 24% decline in their anxiety level according to a standard rating scale. Doctors are experimenting with pets staying with patients. All the patients in the tests are asked to participate and are selected only if they arenвЂ™t afraid of animals and want to join the program.
вЂњThe novel study, presented Tuesday at an American Heart Association meeting, is one of the first to use scientific measurements to document that therapeutic dogs lower anxiety, stress and heart and lung pr Continue reading “Dog Therapy”
As I read this Q&A today By Dr. Billy Graham for part of my daily devotion I thought this goes right along with our (GN’S) Part I Passivity and Part II Obedience
“Why is it so hard to be a Christian and do what’s right?” Read Billy GrahamвЂ™s answer
One reason is because you and I are part of a much larger spiritual battle — a cosmic battle between God and the devil. The Bible warns, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against … the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms” (Ephesians 6:12).
Never forget: Satan is absolutely opposed to God, and his single goal is to stop God’s work — including His work in our lives. When we come to Christ, we change sides (as it were), moving our citizenship from Satan’s kingdom to God’s Kingdom. Now our goal is to follow Christ and become more like Him.
But this doesn’t mean Satan is going to leave us alone! Continue reading “Taken from: Q&A’s for Billy Graham”
See Part I
I am once again on (GN) my coined phrase for Generational Negatives. If you recall Part I talked about Passivity. Now Obedience! Not being Passive!
I have heard and seen so many issues recently relating to GN and seemly with The Seasonal Holidays at hand so are the GNвЂ™s.
Maybe GNвЂ™s are for the holidays. Where do they hide out on all the other days? What makes them pop like flies on these special family days?
Is GN within us? Therefore, when a GN force from another brings pressure to bear on our GN a hurricane effect hits and we, others and sometimes our families become a mess.
Who is your mother? Who are your brothers? When Jesus was told His mother and brothers were waiting outside to see Him in (Luke 8:19-21), He replied, вЂњMy mother and My brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it.вЂќ
I just love Continue reading “GENERATIONAL NEGATIVES (GN) Obedience Part II”

“Hey Mom, this woman writes the greatest vampire novels of all time. People have made movies out of her novels. I love her vampire stories, but it turns out she now has given it all up to write about Jesus.”
I received the above email from one of my sons referring to Anne Rice. It is thrilling to hear that Anne Rice is now writing about and for Jesus and not vampires. My son knew that I would not be thrilled if it were “Anne Rice giving up Jesus and writing for vampires.”
I am thinking Anne has surely flipped with such a flip from Vampires to Jesus.
Vampire, a European folklore and Jesus Christ, God – both are suffering men- one (vampire) claiming to exist eternally and one (Jesus) who does exist Eternally. One (vampire) taking the life of others, while the other, (Jesus) giving life to others. Blood is the issue in both stories, while one (vampire) is said to take a Continue reading “Anne Rice: Vampires to Jesus”

T.O. (Terrell Owens, Philadelphia Eagles, the great)! Until just a few days ago I though the letters T.O. meant too old or too odd.
Terrell Owens just a few days ago played football with the NFL Philadelphia Eagles. Not only played but it was said of T.O. “one of the best or the best to play the game”. He entered into a brawl with his own teammates a week or so ago and no longer plays the game with his team. His team really needed him and of course this could change the outcome of the Eagles. Now for the ones of us that are ” Washington Redskin Fans” we just might not really mind not having him there. We are just thrilled that he is not there!
Brian William’s of NBC reporting last night about T.O. commented “No individual (I) is bigger than the team.” I thought right Brian, ‘I ‘ never makes a team. Many of us join a team and we only see I or me. Sometimes we speak of ou Continue reading “The I Am of a Team”
