Cheers to the color 'green'



Jackies Green Smoothie


 I had to bring up my dusty , old, osterizer blender . See my kitchen :D  Anyway , we went to safeway and bought :  collard greens, parsley, kale, spinach , romaine lettuce , fresh mint, dates, walnuts, olive oil, stevia, almond butter , toilet paper (24 rolls) . Bananas, cantaloupe (I love) , strawberries, frozen bag of blueberries and raspberries, avocados, mandarines, red and green grapes, pears. I think that is about all the fresh fruit and vegetables we got . I was happy about it cause I never buy greens so now , it's something I can buy more of , that I never bought before :)  I also had to buy a couple ice cube trays .
                                                   
Phils smoothie shown here consisted of : water ,a handful of collard greens, 1 1/2 bananas, 4 strawberries, 2 mandarines
3 ice cubes , sprig of mint
-without the mandarines it wasn't sweet enough for him .

My smoothie consisted of : water, a little more than a handful of collard greens :P 1 1/2 bananas, 1 avocado, 2 ice cubes, sprig of mint-It wasn't yummie but ok . It was much thicker than his was . I also think it could have been more sweeter but I will remember that next time .

still can't resist temptation

After ten days on the master cleanse, you'd think I wouldn't want to put food that I know is bad in my mouth. No, I had planned on transitioning slowly off my cleanse to smoothies for three days, but last night my boyfriend came home, and he was a hungry poor thing. I, of course, was waiting to go shopping for some green leafy vegetables and fruit and stuff. My AISH cheque didn't come in (I'm still waiting for it, grrr.) Now, I have to wait until he comes home from work to go grocery shopping.

Anyway, the thing I'm mad about is that Phil ordered take out last night. Guess what it was? PIZZA!!! Don't put that stuff in front of me cause, you guessed it ... I ate it. Not just one piece but 5!

Today all's I had was a big tall glass of the lemon drink used for the master cleanse. "that's it!". I hope I can still carry on with the 3-Day Smoothie challenge ... No, I haven't started yet !!!

Why do things always end up messy and not smoothly? (pun intended)

Green Smoothie Queen


Do you want to join in a 10 day green smoothie challenge ? How about start with a 3 day mini course?

I thought this was a good way to keep a lenten fast if you want to do it for religious reasons but if you just want to lose some weight well this is a perfect opportunity to get a healthy dose of raw health . St. Patricks day is coming up and it's a perfect time to drink green smoothies too!

The letter 'F' lol

Jenny Matlock

My first thought on using the 'F' word, was against the rules, because we are to keep it 'PG' lol . Oh well ...

I had prepared a post scheduled for 12:00 am Thursday and was about FRUIT and how I am looking for a supplement but I regret having deleted that. Sorta like super mario frustration <---oops, that's profane too . Scratch that .

I thought of FAST FOOD and how man made(processed) food is killing us i.e: GMO's (genetically modified foods). So I guess I will be posting about these things separately apart from alphabe thursday .wait for it :P

FATIMA
Fatima is a city in Lisbon Portugal and the place of  Our Lady appearing to three shepherd children back in 1917 . It also is the name of the prophet Mohammed's daughter .  When I lived in Algiers we were familiar with a piece of jewelry in the shape of a hand . This hand was the Hand of Fatima and it has to do with the prophet Mohammeds daughter .

However, I wish to share an important Fatima prophecy .

According to this prophecy , I am under the impression the Pope has not consecrated Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary . So the chastisement has to do with various nations being inihilated and wars and persecutions against the church the good will be martyred and the Holy father will have to suffer .
Our Lady on July 13, 1917: ". . . Russia will spread its errors throughout the world, raising up wars and persecutions against the Church: the good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated: finally My Immaculate Heart will triumph, the Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me, which will be converted and a period of peace will be given to the world."

That sounds like what the prophecy is talking about I think . Especially with Russia causing a revolution in Europe which will precede World War III.  I am not saying I believe that in 2010 we will see all these things come to pass , no. I don't think that is what the prophecy is saying either , only that this year is the beginning and that we are to watch current events associated with the Catholic Church, Russia and the Middle East. Another pope will come supposedly and he will consecrate Russia appropriately .

Anyhow.....If you have read the message of Fatima , and taken into account what I just shared to you regarding the chastisements, I can only assume it has to do with Russia and Our Ladys requests . That's my interpretation .  I figure since we have not had peace yet I don't think that the prophecies were heeded. I mean I don't think the popes have consecrated russia . Even though Pope John Paul II consecrated the world and people are saying it has been fulfilled , there are still those who are saying it hasn't . I am one of them :P

Does all that even make sense to you? probably not but I hope I've made it clear enough .

polluted world gone insane

N nevermind water, air, food and noise pollution but what about pollution of the mind?

The things that can pollute the mind are Books, Magazines, TV, Internet, etc.. Hello!?

If you homeschool children, parents especially need to protect your kids from these harmful pollutants and try to limit the time your kids spend watching tv.

I used to watch Disney movies with my 4-year-old. I would let him choose what movie he wanted to watch. This, of course, was my first mistake. I am glad he always chose the same one, lol It was either 'The rescuers' or 'Aristocats.' I don't know how many times we watched those movies.

Cute film, but, as you are well aware there is always that element of evil with the evil vs. good guy scenario. Beauty and the Beast were ....well..... odd. Tea cup? Cute but whatever. I still enjoyed it as I do with all the Disney animated movies.

Anyway, my second mistake was buying a Nintendo 64 for a 4-year-old!!? This was back in the 90's. Well, I could play Didi Kong racing with him all day long, and it kept him occupied. Yes, I was a single parent. He would sit them and bounce up and down on the comfy chair so hard that he would pee his pants and not go to the bathroom when he needed to. NO! He wasn't potty trained either! I had a hard time potty training my Paul, but that is another story.

After a few days of that and he would wake up at night screaming cause he had had a nightmare :/

Anyway TV, the Internet, movies, magazines, and books, expose children and parents to nakedness and highly provocative dress (I'm not talking about Disney movies ), to the point that we become USED TO IT and it doesn't shock us because we are forced to accept it. It is a Sin that is glorified daily.

Our lady in numerous messages, says to Turn our TV's off or at least limit the time we watch it. I agree. There is nothing good on TV except maybe the friends of seven sometimes and some learning channel or history channel. The rest is garbage. I can't stand commercials anymore.

5 ways tv is slowly killing us.
too much boob tube makes you weaker, research shows


If you want to be mentally and spiritually strong and healthy turn it off and/or at least try to minimize the time you spend watching it.
It is your best interest .
However, it's your choice.

A very special Lenten Season

My Dear, Dear Children …

I absolutely adore silence

You may have noticed the quote of the day :
"Ten people who speak make more noise than ten thousand who are silent."
Napoleon Bonaparte -
Who needs more noise anyway? I don't . Rather it's "the ten thousand who are silent that say more than 10 who speak" bwahahaha

what.... you've never heard the song "you say it best , when you say nothing at all" ? smiley-nunnovie


Here are the lyrics and I absolutely adore this song.

It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word, you can light up the dark
Try as I may I could never explain
What I hear when you don't say a thing

Chorus:
The smile on your face lets me know that you need me
There's a truth in your eyes saying you'll never leave me
A touch of your hand says you'll catch me if ever I fall
Ya you say it best when you say nothing at all

All day long I can hear people talking out loud
But when you hold me near, you drown out the crowd
Oh Mr. Webster you could never define
What's being said between your heart and mine

(Chorus twice)


Both Allison Krauss and Keith Whitley sing this  but I prefer Allison Krauss.

Gloria TV news on the feast of St. Polycarp

February 22, 2010

Suddenly I have cause to rejoice !

I just realized that Orthodox and Catholics will be celebrating Easter on the same date this year!!! April 4th !

I guess if you desire Unity (even if you don't) then I encourage you to sign a petition at onedate.org . Please , I beg you .  Double are Christs sufferings because of our division .(click link for video) He suffers twice!?   whether you are Orthodox or Catholic or Protestant. Jesus means to Save and wouldn't it be nice to celebrate this Feast of Feasts on one date? I think so .

Check out more at http://www.one-date.org/. <----[different then onedate.org] Here you can find out how the dates of Easter/Pascha were calculated and the reasons for the different dates.  Jesus wants this settled and you can help!  :)

If one date succeeds, Jesus promises an era of peace. Here Jesus elaborates:

"...if the churches are able to go beyond the negative obstacles that hinder them to unite, obstacles that according to Scriptures are against the fulfilment of the unity of faith, love and worship among them, I will be faithful to My promise of releasing a time of peace in the entire world; this peace will draw every being into My Mystical Body, fulfilling My Words given to you all in My prayer to God the Father, when I implored:

"may they be one in Us, as You are in Me and I am in You, so that the world may believe it was You who sent Me;" Jn. 17:21 this supplication uttered by My divine Lips is echoing every second from heaven still; My Words intonated were meant that the whole of the creation must be affected into a spiritual unity and not a unity by a signed treaty; to fulfil My Words the churches must seek first humility and love, graces that can be obtained through the Holy Spirit and through a great repentance(see: http://tlig.org/en/messages/1073/)"
