Introducing My 1st Blog Post

Migration of the Butterflies 2019

Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.

— Oscar Wilde.

This is the first post on my new blog. I’m just getting this new blog going, so stay tuned for more. I hope you will enjoy my crazy journeys and adventures, photography, and my new experiences through the creativity process as I try new ideas and techniques in my photography, artwork even recipes.

I am embarking on a journey to live a healthy lifestyle focused on feeding my mind and my body in a way that makes it function like a well oiled machine. Organic foods, fresh foods, with limited gluten and lactose free. Grass feed beef and free range chicken and eggs without all of the hormones and artificial preservatives. I hope that my blog will be educational and humorous at times as well.

Spreading positivity and kindness, I hope that my words will impact your life and lead you on your own path to discovery and a creativity happy healthy life. Try something new you might enjoy it! You never know what fun you can have if you have doubts and never try it. Don’t live a life full of regret thinking I always wish I had. Just Do It! And have fun making memories while you are at it.

Never Stop Learning

The ones who appreciate, and approve of your work, and work ethic.

Random Thoughts

Bunny’s are Brilliant! And see in the dark no wonder they KEEP GOING AND GOING AND GOING. MUNCH ON … Mr. Duracell 🐇
These are the things that build character, make you human and show people that you have become a grown up. Never ever stop learning, because you will never know it all, no one knows everything, everyone should be learning something new every day. Keep a journal, trust me one day you will look back and smile, recording the things that make you happy, sad write poems jingles, even if you just write them on scraps of paper and stick it in a book put the date on it. Never regret helping someone. You maybe the ONLY ONE WHO DID! You may never know the difference you make in that one persons life. You make a difference.
Always be kind.

What Are Your Gifts

You have to have a Heart ❤️ of Gold and Love in your Heart to see The Joy that is Heaven on 🌍 to Respect ✊, People, and Treat them with Kindness, just as you Treat, this Planet 🌎 with Kindness. If people continually go around HURTING, each other , Causing each other PAIN, SEPARATING, FAMILIES, and FRIENDS, DIVIDING COMMUNITIES, COUNTRIES, COUNTIES AND NATIONS, based on disagreements over, POLITICS, Race, RELIGION, RELATIONSHIPS, people continue to act like they are in High School. Men never grow up and act like adults, because they are always wanting more expensive grown up Toys! Not supporting their wives educators, paying for Heath care expenses, or children’s education expenses, but we all want OUR CHILDREN to be the BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST. Then who is putting tires on cars, gas in cars, paying for music lessons, dance lessons, all of the archery equipment, swimming, athletics, hunting, four wheelers, art supplies, computers? If we are going to compete on NATIONAL LEVELS?

You intend to Save this plant, make plans on teaching children of the future Etiquette skills, manners, gardening, recycling, a child’s first teachers are their Parents! It starts AT HOME! With how you speak to your children the examples you set for your children. The music you listen to, your diet, do you sit down at a table for meals, have conversations? Are you encouraging, grateful, thankful, appreciative, joyful, or judgemental?

Are you observing the little things around you? The gifts that God has blessed you with Gods Treasures? A child laughter, the twinkle 🤩 in their eye, the silly stories in their creative minds, the butterfly 🦋, drifting by, the birds singing, stop and smell the Roses, say Hi to your neighbor. ( Don’t just cruise through the neighborhood and see if they are home YES I SEE YOU AND YOU ARE FREAKING ME OUT I SEE THE SAME CARS SITTING OUTSIDE, I AM VERY OBSERVANT) 🙄.
And you are irritating the crap out of me if I had a paintball gun I would start TAGGING YOUR CARS!!! 😡.

Think about the way you would want to be treated! And Start treating people the way that you want to be treated. Start asking ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS.

How are you! Can I help you? Do you have an URGENT NEED? Is there something bothering you? Do you have a problem that I can be of assistance with, I might can try and help you investigate this issue.

Never make ASSUMPTIONS!

Happy Birthday Carissa Love You!!!!

It’s my Sisters Birthday 🎂
Thoughts in my head today

Truth

“To me, fishing’s the greatest sport on the planet for many reasons,” he says. “My call-out to those people who’ve never fished: Just go out and enjoy it at any level. Fishing can be intimidating because today a lot of people see $50,000 to $70,000 bass boats and all this fancy equipment, and they think it’s required to go fishing. That’s absolutely false, man.,Gaston’s

“I mean, you can fish with a stick. You can fish as inexpensive as you want, from a cane pole and digging worms out of your yard to $80,000 boats and high-dollar equipment. You can fish from the shore, from a boat, it doesn’t matter.”

Quote

  • “The world’s hunger is getting ridiculous, There is more fruit in rich man’s shampoo than in a poor man’s plate.”

When you feed others you are feeding Christ.

1. Matthew 25:34-40 “Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, my Father has blessed you! Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger, and you took me into your home. I needed clothes, and you gave me something to wear. I was sick, and you took care of me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’ “Then the people who have God’s approval will reply to him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you or see you thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you as a stranger and take you into our homes or see you in need of clothes and give you something to wear? When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ “The king will answer them, ‘I can guarantee this truth: Whatever you did for one of my brothers or sisters, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did for me.’

What does the Bible say?

2. Isaiah 58:10 If you give some of your own food to [feed] those who are hungry and to satisfy [the needs of] those who are humble, then your light will rise in the dark, and your darkness will become as bright as the noonday sun.null

3. Isaiah 58:7 Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help.

4. Ezekiel 18:7 He is a merciful creditor, not keeping the items given as security by poor debtors. He does not rob the poor but instead gives food to the hungry and provides clothes for the needy.

5. Luke 3:11 He answered them, “Whoever has two shirts should share with the person who doesn’t have any. Whoever has food should share it too.”https://11a4198f70b94ec024e77adbd987add8.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

6. Matthew 10:42 I tell all of you with certainty, whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones because he is a disciple will never lose his reward.

7. Proverbs 19:17 The one who is gracious to the poor lends to the Lord, and the Lord will repay him for his good deed.

8. Proverbs 22:9 A generous person will be blessed, for he gives some of his food to the poor.

9. Romans 12:13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.

God blesses us so we can help others.

Scribbles and Mistakes

With low literacy rates in the United States, and children needing more and more early intervention, and preschool more structure in the homes at an early age, more head start experiences, more after school care, parents having to work two and three jobs to support their families, single parent homes, more and more latch key children, no one home to supervise children after school. There has become more and more need for after school programs, Boys and Girls Programs, Church programs, funding for community outreach programs.

Yet people in Washington DC , want to make crazy rules that affect OUR KIDS!

Please help OUR KIDS BE KIDS! And Write some letters!

Our politicians sure don’t have them!

Own Your Everyday

A picture is worth 1000 words 12 x9 inch watercolor by MShannonHurst

Perspective the way you see look at things can take on a whole different meaning if you have walked in someone’s shoes their whole life, if you do not know someone’s entire history or their whole story, their intentions then when people do things oftentimes they do not have the outcome they might expect. Possibly due to a lack of communication, and expectations.

Parsley and mint, basil and oregano some thyme some where… it sure does smell nice and fresh. I like having fresh plants inside. I wish I had more room.

Patients during these trying times

As a teacher, and student always learning grow and expand my mi d and share what i learn with my students so they can pass on skills to their children and to continue to grow themselves. Remember always to have patients with yourself, and people around you. Life can be difficult and frustrating you never know if someone else is having a bad day. Try and be nice, and friendly on the outside, even if you really just want to stick your tongue out at someone. We all have those moments. Sometimes it just happens.

In this crazy world of no hand shakes, or hi fives, and fist bumps, or hugs, maybe it is a new sign of affection. Heck I will take a elbow bump these days, or a pat on the back, or heck my cousin slugs me in the shoulder (not hard mind you) but we still greet each other with signs of love and affection. Whether it be a wave, a missed high five in the air (you know we can’t touch hands anymore 🙄 germaphobes WASH YA HANDS, don’t put your fingers in your mouth, or writing utensils in your mouth🤢) Give us a sign a 👍 or 😘
