Without faith, nothing is possible. With it, nothing is impossible.
STARTING A NEW SERIES ON; FAITH AND CONTINUING LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE. ALONG WITH HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
Today is the last day of the month of September and tomorrow starts a new month.
This is the month that Dan enjoys the best, perhaps; maybe it’s related to pumpkins and his favorite color - ORANGE.
Or because of the fall weather and the leaves changing different colors; RED, ORANGE, GOLD, BROWN!
Either or it’s a start of a holiday season.
Today we are starting a new series, FAITH.
Faith can be defined as “being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.”
It is the understanding, deep down within, that things will turn out all right for us no matter what the situation might be.
Whether you acknowledge it or not, faith is an important part of life.
If we didn’t have faith, life would cease to have meaning.
We would not be able to move from one moment to the next without doubting every last thing that we did.
Life can get tough at times.
When things get remarkably difficult, it’s faith that keeps us going.
It gives us strength in times of weakness and illuminates the pathway in times of darkness.
The reason why having faith is so important is that it powerfully convinces you that everything will go according to plan.
That’s why without faith we are nothing.
How many are you out there are left-handers?
I raise my left hand! When I was growing up, I learned everything right-handed; which made everything I did the wrong way.
It’s time to share some words from THE LEFT-HANDER’S HANDBOOK.
WHY ARE THINGS SO TOUGH ON LEFT-HANDERS?
The goofy, unpredictable nature of left-handers is why so many of them turn out to be great achievers; including the assortment of saints, scalawags, heroes, wackos, and geniuses.
Left-handed kids tend to be well, a little different.
A little messier.
A little dreamier.
A little emotional.
They’re also likely to be a little smarter than right-handers.
Left-handers are twice as likely to qualify for membership in Mensa the high-IQ society.
QUOTES ABOUT LIVING
Faith is believing something is true without having to see real proof.
In fact, sometimes faith is believing something is true regardless of what real proof shows.
If you have faith in a person, and it looks as though this person has done something wrong or you hear gossip about it; you won’t believe it until you hear it directly from them.
Faith is tied to trust.
You cannot have faith without trust or trust without faith.

CONTINUING THE SERIES ON HOW SAFE IS MEXICO?
Dan and I grabbed an opportunity nine years ago, when we took on the adventure and moved to Mexico. Back then, we didn’t know what to expect, except that both of us were alive and ready for a change. We had been going to Tijuana for cancer treatments and knew somewhat what we were heading into. We ended up living in the center of the country however; better for travel purposes and it was nothing like what we had thought about. To this date, we are back in the states living in Virginia and what we took from Mexico was friendships, culture and understanding of their ways of life.
Through thousands of pictures that I took, Dan and I are showing how safe Mexico is. There is a saying ‘A picture is worth a thousand words’; this is so true! A picture tells a story just as well as, if not better than, a lot of written words.
30 PICTURES - ENJOY THE SLIDE SHOW
"Chinese proverb. One picture is worth ten thousand words."
So, we will be posting a gallery of pictures on each post, hopefully you will see each one has a story.
Tomorrow I will continue the series on LIVING SUCCESSFULLY WITH SCREWED-UP PEOPLE, by Elizabeth B. Brown. Dan and I continue to share ways to benefit and help keep one’s health cells healthy. A wise man told me ten years ago, when one is in balance with themselves; one stays healthy.

CONTINUING ON – ARE EMOTIONS DRIVERS OF PHYSICAL HEALTH?
Being sick may start in the emotions, but it ends in the body.
Research is showing an increasing appreciation for the reality that your health is in your hands.
You must develop healthy copying skills or your emotions will become toxic.
Studies confirm that two years after an intense period of stress, for example the death of a spouse or child; major health problems such as cancers and strokes are common.
The Holmes-Rahe Life Events Test assigns numerical values to correlate with the amount of internal stress the body typically experiences in major life events:
Death of a spouse is assigned 100 points
Death of a close family friend 63
A serious relationship conflict 45
Even positive events are stressful:
Having a baby 39
Graduating from college 26
Continue tomorrow –
This is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs. In the coming week, Dan and I will be blogging the benefits of TURMERIC. It’s amazing what and how turmeric can help keep your body healthy?
What about acne and turmeric?
Some people claim that putting a turmeric mask on their skin or eating turmeric will help fight stubborn pimples, perhaps because of the spice's reported antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Turmeric contains bioactive compounds with medicinal properties.
However, the curcumin content of turmeric isn’t that high. It’s around 3%, by weight.
Most of the studies on this herb use turmeric extracts that contain mostly curcumin itself, with dosages usually exceeding 1 gram per day.
It would be very difficult to reach these levels just using turmeric as a spice in your foods.
That’s why some people choose to use supplements.
However, curcumin is poorly absorbed into your bloodstream.
In order to experience the full effects of curcumin, its bioavailability (the rate at which your body absorbs a substance) needs to improve.
It helps to consume it with black pepper, which contains piperine.
Piperine is a natural substance that enhances the absorption of curcumin by 2,000.
In fact, the best curcumin supplements contain piperine, and this makes them substantially more effective.
Curcumin is also fat soluble, which means it breaks down and dissolves in fat or oil.
That’s why it may be a good idea to take curcumin supplements with a meal that’s high in fat.
Turmeric contains curcumin, a substance with powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Most studies use turmeric extracts that are standardized to include large amounts of curcumin.
