"Brothers and sisters, fill your minds with whatever is good and true, whatever is pure, whatever is noble and right, whatever is lovely, whatever is honorable and admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things. Put them into practice, and God -who gives us peace- will be with you." (Philippians 4:8)

"Thanks for the Gift: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philippians 4:13)

We must train our minds to think upon these positive and peaceful things. We must keep our minds protected, because the devil could take advantage of those vulnerable ones.

"There is Always a Reason." My Monthly Newsletter for May.

My Monthly Newsletter for May...
Dear Friends,
Please, do not go away or leave me alone...
I realize that some folks have left my site. I do not know why!!...
I shall miss them so much!! My heart is sad about their departure.
I have already mentioned that I am only able to post My Monthly Newsletter once a month or so, if that is God's will. At times, my pain overwhelms, and I am unable to write. Please, understand my personal situation, and stay with me. I think that true loyal Christian friends should remain in touch, unless they are fake or so untrue...
I believe in a true Brotherhood of Christians in Action, not in just meaningless or empty words spoken. When I get inspired by God, I begin to write my messages with a real meaning.  I still post some pictures from time to time, in order to show that I am still around, although not much inspired to post a poem, a thought, or an inspirational story. I do get tired like any other human being. 
I apologize for not being around much!...Will you forgive me?...
I let you know that I certainly visit your wonderful blogs, dear Online friends, and I pray for those who need prayers...
As you may know, if you have followed my blogs for a while, that I am an American Christian mother and a grandmother who suffers chronic illness, such as asthma, allergy, fatigue, tachycardia, and so on. My overweight does not help me at all. In fact, it increases the risk of swelling limbs, and worsen my peripheral varicose veins. I've got hard times in moving around, and my eye-vision is poor. My sleeping disorders defeat me, since I am a bipolar patient. I would have to take medications for a lifetime. These health ailments are so uncomfortable. I sit down and type with my legs upwards. Hubby says that Home Care is expensive back home in the States. Anyway, I still miss my old good times.
We live overseas at the present time. I miss my dear family so much!! My parents and all ancestors dwell in Heaven with God.
Hubby, who is a Senior Physician Chief  E.R. Surgeon, says -after his medical evaluation- that I am a disabled lady, and I am not able to travel alone or live alone. I would need help from other people. To know this sort of issues is so frustrating and sad for me...
I would certainly like to earn Heaven, to do good deeds in my remaining time, before my time is over. We all choose what to do with our time, in order to fill up those 24 hours with positive inputs each day. What do you do with your sharing time?? I wonder...
To worship God, writing and helping others in need are my choices. There is always a reason under the Heaven why God does what He does. I praise the Lord in all circumstances, either good or bad.
In My Monthly Newletter for May, I'll post a poem that I call:
"There is Always a Reason."
 There is always a reason
Why Christ has taken part in your life.
There is always a reason
In every hour, day and season.
The Lord covers all moments and sights.
There is nothing that escapes His mighty vision.
The Lord is there in every life.
There was a main reason
That we would not understand,
His precious gift and ultimate sacrifice.
He healed with His own hands.
He sculptured our living beings in all means.
Jesus came to redeem the sins of the world.
He shed His Holy blood on the Cross
For the forgiveness of our sins.
If our body and mind feel at lost...
Seek for Jesus and call His Holy Name.
He will enter into your life,
And nothing will ever be the same.
You'll experience a wonderful change.
Faith will save you, if you search.
Trust in the Lord with a boundless faith.
He's the Lighthouse in the darkest night.
Shine with His Light, and with His water bathe.
Let Him come into your heart!!
He'll stay there and never part.
There is always a reason to be,
And why the Lord does what He does,
Or why He knocks at our door.
God is in control, a reminder to know.
Open up, invite Him to come in and see...
Surrender yourself under His feet!!
What are you waiting for?...
Bow your head in prayer,
Burdens and pain alone, we will no more bear.
Say, you love Him and need Him!!
Thanksgiving and glory for this brand new day!!
Praise the Lord 'till the end of time!!
In Heaven, the best rewards we'll find.

We won't take material things to Heaven. Our spirit is not material. We need spiritual food for our soul, like food for our body.
As an artist, poet and writer, I have given myself the inspirational nickname "Morning Star." Long ago, the morning star announced Mary that she would bear Christ, the King. Then, Jesus was born...

Hi Starry..I really like this blog...it's so peaceful and the pictures are gorgeous. To look a these views is very calming. I am sorry to hear about your illness :( I think we need more of God in our lives in general. I myself am going through a not so pleasant time at the moment...but will be fine eventually once my life has settled a little. On my free time I am mostly working with my art...because it relaxes me.

Love
Eva

Dear Starry Dawn, is moving your newsletter, I do not think anyone will forget you, what happens is that maintaining a site takes time and some people choose to retire, that's all. Also, your poem is wonderful, full of glory.
God bless you and hope your health improves soon.
Regarding your question, I am not a professional historian, amateur only.
I leave you a hug and a rose, have a great weekend.

Hello Crystal,
I am glad to know that you have found my inspirational site, and post your lovely comments in here.
You are always welcome aboard.
You say that people come and go...
Anyway, it makes me sad when they go away, because that is not my style. It just breaks my heart...
When they said to me that they were friends, then, they were lying. True friends last for a lifetime, not for a short season.
I've got a high appreciation for true friendship in Christ.
I am a Christian lady with lasting moral values, not empty words.
Happy Mother's Day to one & all!!
Have a blessed day, Crystal with those you love!!
Have a great weekend too...
In God's Garden,
Poet & Song-Writer Starry.
