"God Is."
"Peace / Love"

These are just two examples from my playlist's recent choices. Surely there are many other pairings acted upon, stated and thought about in this high-stress global environment where chilly attempts to force good people to curse "damn you" are as common as a "bless you" response to any of our billions of sneezes. Question is, if we know better and have a choice as to whether or not we lower our vibrations, why stoop? Then, if we believed an occasion really called for it and such a decision was made, why settle and stay (or try to keep another) down on that level in the name of strength? To let the Living Word and even a certain Dr. Emoto tell it, it actually doesn't get much weaker than that. His water crystal energy work particularly brings to mind the importance of sharing an encouraging, light heart with each other, particularly the young people and women both credited with being the most watery of our species. As right Word vibration is credited with much of the power and/or practice that created the entire universe, it's safe to say that I'd like to keep my little piece of it sound -- with goodness!

KNEWS :: Hell or High Water?

As of yesterday, 167 law enforcement officers were relieved of their duties to Newark, NJ indefinitely. This is but a foreshadowing of the cuts expected to extend to some sanitation and other municipal workers as the month progresses. While running any 'household', even a city-sized one, is well-known as no cheap or easy task to complete properly, some concern (if not compassion) should arise in considering what could become of a community with gradually increasing unemployment rates plus the added challenge of the proper safety and hygiene structure being shaken. Adding a little levity to these variedly serious times, maybe the Kentucky investors who decided to build a new ark (namely Noah's) have the right idea! At least that's somewhat more feasible in my opinion than, say, cosmetically enhanced apples over otherwise beautifying the "Big Apple", New York. Its natural effects on real food might not be all that pretty, but please remember, people: oxygen is often a good thing! What works for healthy blood and lung function should be good for fruit, too. Be well and breathe easy!

This month of December not only focuses on fun fetes but also marks a period of additional gratitude, great vision and good health! The first day in particular commemorates the 55th anniversary of Civil Rights legend Rosa Parks' arrest as well as World AIDS Day, reminding us of the importance of taking a stand (or seat) against injustice and health promotion/dis-ease prevention at large. I believe including the books of Acts [weeks 1 & 2; weeks 3 & 4] and Titus for the final three days in this month's scriptural studies respectively will help develop our knowledge of pioneering, apostolic duty and Divine order over our earthly groups. Happy holy days as they arrive!
