Luke 10:38-42

Martha and Mary

38 Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. 39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet and listened to his teaching. 40 But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.” 41 But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, 42 but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”

How To Erase The Pain Of The Past (Episode 45)


  Proverbs 4:25-27

25 Let your eyes look directly forward,
    and your gaze be straight before you.
26 Ponder the path of your feet;
    then all your ways will be sure.
27 Do not swerve to the right or to the left;
    turn your foot away from evil.

1.  Practice Proverbs 4:25-27
2.  Say "Enough" to yourself.  You no longer live in the past.
     You are living in the now. Ask our Lord to help you take 
     the steps needed to move away from a painful past.  
3.  Replace those past thoughts with  positive messages.
Listen to the podcast for more thoughts on the tools and a strategy to use so that -you-can begin  moving forward. 
4.  If you feel that you  are just too overwhelmed by thoughts  of the past then consider seeking medical professional help. 
This is an opinion based blog.  Please consult with a medical professional for any concerns or before undertaking any new health  regiment.

Learn A New Skill (Episode 44)

It is imperative to continue learning new things especially later in life. Quite frankly, when younger we are in a constant state of learning, right? As we age, we get into a routine and somewhere along the line-for some of us-life becomes boring. Yeah, let's tell the truth--the same thing just a different day.  Well, stop doing that now! First of all, there are indeed health benefits to learning new skills.
1.  You become more productive.  
2.  You keep your neurons (workers in your brain) active which in turn keeps you sharp minded. 
3   You are exposed to other like-minded individuals
4.  You have fun doing what you like! Great for our physiology!

The New Year is quickly approaching so perhaps you will consider adding a new skill?
Listen to the Pod cast for some new skill ideas.

Mindful Breathing Meditation Moments-(Episode 43)

There is a true science behind: Breathing.  Yup! On this blog we quite often talk about being "mindful".  Today we  focus on "mindful" Breathing.  Yeah, Yeah, Yeah-you say? Let me tell you a few things about breathing that you -may- not know. Okay, we know that it keeps us ticking-right? Did you know that "mindful" breathing promotes inner peace, reduces stress, relaxes the body and mind? Wait! There is so much more to this focused breathing. We all have our own "pattern" of breathing and we don't want to change that but we do want to be "mindful" of it.  The best time is during our meditation time or just before sleep. By the way, Mindful breathing is a natural tranquilizer which calms you when upset and helps you go to sleep.  In my workshops, I introduce "tools" such as utilizing a vision board, journal, affirmations and now focused breathing.  Of course, there is no right or wrong in breathing but I share with you how the "breath" can be used as a tool.  If you have any respiratory or medical conditions you will want  to consult with your medical practitioner before undertaking anything new.   If you have any medical concerns always consult with your medical professional before beginning a new health regiment. Okay? Most of us don't realize it but we don't take nice cleansing breaths during our day.  This is where breathing meditation breaks will help.  They are easy to do anytime and anywhere!   When we inhale our blood is actually purified. How? By removing waste products that hang around inside of our body. You know, the toxic stuff that we accumulate through our environment, chemicals we use and the foods we eat.  Conscious breathing refreshes our system and clears our minds.  Sounds like a good deal-right?  We just have to set some time for our meditation which is easy. 
Listen to this podcast and follow along. Okay,  let's try some mindful breathing:

Close your eyes
Do not change your pattern of breathing--just breathe normally. Observe your breathing. (Strange feeling-right?)
Inhale through your nose and let's count up to 4 as you inhale. 1-2-3-4
Hold 1-2-3
Exhale (very slowly) through your mouth 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10  Exhaling takes longer than the inhaling. You are exhaling the toxic and negativity.Remain aware of your breathing in and out.
Of course, if at anytime you feel dizzy or discomfort -STOP!
Do your breathing meditation twice per session.  Do one set than another and gradually build up through time or to your comfort level. 
Remember there is no right or wrong way.  The only way is "your" way which brings you comfort and relaxation.

Breathing meditation moments are extremely helpful in doing your visualization exercises, meditation and yoga.

A Brand New Day (Episode 42)

  A BRAND NEW DAY



 Catholic morning prayer:
O Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer you my prayers, works, joys, and sufferings of this day for all the intentions of your Sacred Heart, in union with the holy sacrifice of the Mass throughout the world, in thanksgiving for your favors, in reparation for my sins, for the intentions of all my relatives and friends, and in particular for the intentions of the Holy Father. Amen.

 

 No matter what your circumstances, the start of a new day brings hope and the opportunity for you to do better than yesterday. Sometimes, we get overwhelmed by our daily responsibilities or worries that we just place our prayer life aside.

The secret in overcoming all those worries and stresses is in prayer.  When we pray with a sincere heart our mind places us in a peaceful zone.  This peace clears our mind so that we can make the right choices and find the correct solutions to our problems. A time of prayer allows you to heal and renew your spirit.  It is only through God that we can find the strength to overcome difficult challenges.  Let his words be your shield when going through a life storm.

May God Bless You With Grace
-Your Rosary Maker




Psalm 107:28-30 Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He made the storm be still, and the waves of the sea were hushed. Then they were glad that the waters were quiet, and he brought them to their desired haven

How To Declutter Your Home And Make Money Too. (Episode 40)

Yup! You read and heard right! I'm sharing with you today how to unclutter your home and make some money too!. We have been talking about how the Lord wants us to be prosperous and yesterday on the perils of over consumption.  Today, we will talk about how to get rid of all the "stuff" that you purchased  and no longer need.  You know, that stuff collecting dust.  Yup!  We all have it-things we just don't use anymore. Get rid of it and make some money at the same time.  It takes a little effort on your part but it's the quickest way to get rid of you "extra" stuff and get "extra" money into your pockets!
Okay, let's get to the point:

Listen to the Podcast for  step by step instructions:
Make this a family activity.  A teaching lesson for the kids too. .  
1.   Gather-
2.   Catagorize-boxes
3.   Select selling venues
4.   Safety_
5.   What will you do with the money?
6.   What to do with things that did not sell. .  

It's too bad that financial 101 is not taught to us from the start of school.  It takes most of us a while to learn how to manage our money.  Truly, if we learn how to manage our money then money will take care of us.  After all, God gave us the ability to create wealth but he also gave us the sense to know how to use it.

Save Your money, spend wisely so you can plan ahead.

God Bless you, my friends
Your Rosary Maker

Matthew 25:14-30

New International Version (NIV)

The Parable of the Bags of Gold

14 “Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them. 15 To one he gave five bags of gold, and to another- two 
bags, and to another- one bag, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. 16 The man who had received five bags of gold went at once and put his money to work and gained five bags more. 17 So also, the one with two bags of gold gained two more. 18 But the man who had received one bag went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.
19 “After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. 20 The man who had received five bags of gold brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five bags of gold. See, I have gained five more.’
21 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
22 “The man with two bags of gold also came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with two bags of gold; see, I have gained two more.’
23 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
24 “Then the man who had received one bag of gold came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. 25 So I was afraid and went out and hid your gold in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’
26 “His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? 27 Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.
28 “‘So take the bag of gold from him and give it to the one who has ten bags. 29 For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. 30 And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

God does Wants You To be Prosperous ( Episode 38 )

  Deuteronomy 8:18

English Standard Version (ESV)
18 You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.

  • I had dinner with a friend of mine this weekend and we touched upon the subject of prosperity and God's feeling upon the matter. Well, I'm here to tell you that God absolutely wants us to succeed in all areas of our lives.  Yes, that means that it is okay to be prosperous not only financially but in all areas of our life. My friend made an interesting point in that God gave us the intelligence and the desire to accomplish great things.  Liz, you are absolutely correct! Now here is the exchange for the ability to accomplish great things and prosperity.  You are not to forget who gave you these things...God.  All these "worldly" gifts that we acquire, we are not permitted to  attach ourselves to them Why? Because you place God -who gave you the ability to acquire these "things" in the first place- aside.  Anything that comes between you and God is negative.  You really begin to see "things" that you purchase in a different light when you begin to understand your relationship with God. It's  okay to have "nice" things but -not-if it comes between you and the lord.  You will return home to the kingdom of God without "things" or money.   The Lord Almighty gave each of us gifts that would help us here on earth be prosperous in one way or another.  The capability to be successful and prosperous has been instilled within each of us. Whether  we choose to place it into action is another story. Enjoy the gifts from God and share them with others but do not attach yourself to things. 
Thank you for joining me today.  I pray that this blog podcast is a blessing to you.  If you have any Questions, comments or prayer request feel free to contact us.  If you would like to place an order please do so by calling, The Rosary Artisan Studio.
God Bless you and May all the Angels accompany you throughout this day.  Smiles and Hugs from your Rosary Maker. Make it a great day!

Prayer Request From Anna-

Prayer Request By Anna-


animated candle photo: candle animated_candle.gif
Friends, the passing of our loved ones is a place of sadness but what if we could have just one moment in heaven to  tell them how much we love them and how they have made a difference in our lives.  They in turn would tell you that they are fine and to honor their human life by remembering their presence. They would tell you to continue living in peace because their light continues to shine. Your Loved one would give you hug that would last you -your- entire human life -until- you meet again.  My Friends, you will meet again with those who have moved on to be with our Lord.  Our loved ones walk with us in spirit and hold us up in our healing of their loss. 
May our heavenly Father carry you through this intense sadness but please know that you are not alone. 
May the Grace of God be with you. 

Your Rosary Maker-

Please join me in prayer for a young soul who has now passed on to be with our heavenly father.  Let us honor her sweet presence when on  earth and rejoice in her new heavenly life. 
Anna, has requested that we join her in prayer.  Please pray a rosary for this young soul who is now with the lord and for her family struggling with her loss.  Together we pray for God's Grace to shine upon this sweet soul and her family. 

Thank you.

Health Talk- Amalgam Fillings (Episode 37)

Amalgam Fillings-Yup, those silver fillings in your mouth-this is my opinion- not healthy at all- Listen to the podcast.  I am not a medical professional.  This is an opinion based blog and I urge you to do your very own research. Of course, always consult with your medical professional  to address any of your questions or concerns. Should you decide to remove the mercury consult with a Biological Dentist-he or she will prepare you for the procedure!  Educate--educate and educate yourself.  Friends, Take care of yourself! Your health is your treasure.
