You can encourage one another with your ACTIONS.

Remember to listen to the video at the end of the post; Bruno Mars is fabulous.

Who was it that said Actions speak louder than – WORDS?
The values you/I have in life are judged more by how you/I live y/our life than by what you say.

People notice what you DO.

By our actions – we are setting an example for others to follow.

James a well known guy said to be Be doers not hearers only.

Love is more than emotion/s.
“Love is patient; love is kind. Love does not envy; is not boastful; is not conceited; does not act improperly; is not selfish; is not provoked; does not keep a record of wrongs; finds no joy in unrighteousness, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

Love is “ACTION”

I can choose to show kindness or not to show kindness.

I can choose to be compassionate or not.

I can choose to brag or not to brag.

I can choose to hold a grudge or to let it go.

I can choose..

Just the other day I was talking to a government official at the pardons Canada dept. Before I go any further I was talking to pardons Canada as a liaison for someone else.  We talked about giving people second chances.  People may have taken many wrong paths but there comes a time when someone needs to give them a chance.  Who knows we could be the very person whose act of kindness- a giver of second chances – could give someone back their life.

ACTIONS

It is wise to have good role models.  We all need them.  We all need someone to cheer us onward.
I have a few good earthly flesh and blood role models. I also have the creator; I am safe to follow the creator.

In a world with such negativity and trash;There are so many people that are in need of encouragement so then it is required of me whenever possible to do just that. Actions speak louder than words

Touch of Love

AT the touch of love
adoration abounds
clarity in change
fragrance of delight
cry together
touch the wounds
share the pain
healing rain
of heaven
who touches
my soul
inside cradle
of comfort
as a lullaby song
I’m
not alone..©

When it’s all said and done…just keep spreading the love.
 

Well done is better than well said.  ~Benjamin Franklin

Talk doesn’t cook rice.  ~Chinese Proverb

Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.
Mahatma Gandhi

“Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.”
William James

I know you can be a great person of action.  I have faith in you.

Love and keep loving.  Remember you make the world a better place.

Blessings to you.

Thanks for reading my bLoG!

X is for Xylitol and the X Factor!

Xylitol is a sugar alcohol sweetener used as a sugar substitute. Xylitol is a tooth friendly sugar and is roughly as sweet as sucrose with 33% fewer calories. Unlike other sweeteners, xylitol is actively beneficial for dental health, reducing caries to a third in regular use, and has been shown to reduce the incidence of acute middle ear infection. Xylitol also inhibits the growth of Streptococcus pneumoniae, as well as the attachment of Haemophilus influenzae on the nasopharyngeal cells.

Xylitol is a naturally occurring sugar alcohol sweetener used as a sugar substitute. Pure Xylitol is a white crystalline substance that looks and tastes like sugar. It is a naturally occurring 5-carbon sugar alcohol found in many fruits and vegetables. Xylitol is also produced naturally in our bodies from the foods we eat. Our bodies produce up to 15 grams of Xylitol from other food sources using established energy pathways. Xylitol is not a strange or artificial substance, but a normal part of everyday metabolism!

Xylitol
Here is Donna’s website that explains xylitol in more detail:

Xylotiol has the x factor in benefits…

X Factor; no not the show, but the extra [that’s it] factor/benefits.

The X Factor is that special something that is kinda unspoken and something that you just give off. Some say it’s an energy. Other’s say it’s the spirit/aura of God. I think all people give off an energy or a vibe and I think all other people can sense that.

It’s not like we are puppets but there are things you/I can do to control y/our energy. It’s the focusing on the negative or positive things in your life.

Some would say – Who wants to be around people who are negative, complain a lot, or have nothing good to say? In fact, many would run a mile when they see them coming.

Instead, be the kind of upbeat person who lights up a room with your energy when you enter it. Do it by looking for the best in people and things. Smile warmly, spread good cheer, and enliven others with your presence. Now I didn’t say it is easy but the more in tune with your own self and the creator I believe the easier it will become. I would like to say however that this does not negate the moments of serious conversation and exploring weighty situations.  We all must make time to talk things through with a confident or spouse.

I feel that a person with the X Factor is a person of integrity and values that he or she will never compromise. He or she is a great family man or woman who puts their family first and would protect them with their own life.

A person with the X Factor is really a champion in this world. Sometimes a silent strength other times vocal. A champion that can achieve a difficult goal or overcome challenging obstacles.
A champion is a person that gets up even when they can’t. How you say? With the strength of God the creator who gives all things liberally.

helping hand

A person with the X Factor gets involved and is a Great Samaritan. Living a life of passion and not mediocrity and many times a forthright individual.

X Factor compiles the comfort of being in one’s own skin, not haughty but know their positive portrayal is a result of time with the creator. They are humbled by the awareness of the awesomeness of God who loves them.

There is no definable yard stick, set of rules, to have and to hold list but it just is. One thing I do know; I want to have the x factor.

Quotes to Ponder!

“I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.” Leonardo da Vinci

 Whenever you’re in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude. William James

“I believe He wants us to love others so much that we go to extremes to help them.” – Francis Chan,
