Let Go Let God

If you are anxious, tense, or concerned about anything in your life, dear friend, begin now to relax, let go, and let God fill your need.
No matter what seems to be missing from your life—be it a much-loved person, a special place, an activity of great value, or a feeling of well-being—know that God is right now filling your need.
Take a deep breath. Release it slowly, telling yourself quietly: I let go. I let God fill my need. Accept the reality that God's wisdom is ever present and available, ready to fill you with new understanding, light, and life. Let God fill every void, every emptiness that seems to separate you from the desires of your heart. Let go! Let God fill your need!
God's light and substance and divine activity will move in and through you as you let go. God's creative process is awaiting your acceptance of its productive, healing action. Let your thoughts be lifted up. Let the presence of God dissolve your fears and doubts and remove every unbelief. Let go and let God within you do the work.
Begin now to relax from the strain and effort of questioning, planning, and reasoning. Take a few moments throughout the day to calm your thinking and place all your attention upon the words: I let go. I let God fill my need.
Immediately, you will experience visible and tangible benefits, inside and out. You will feel renewed strength and faith and courage. Your prayers will be more effective, and your understanding of the presence of God within you will be clearer. You will find that God's love takes care of what you cannot accomplish. As you let go, God will freely and abundantly fill every need.
God always provides wisdom, knowledge, guidance, understanding, faith, healing, supply, or anything else you need. Whatever your life experience appears to be, you have—at this very moment—an opportunity to let go of your personal striving and let God move in you and through you to fill your every need.
During the most critical point in the life of Jesus, when the minds and hearts of His disciples seemed totally depleted of courage and faith, their needs were filled. As the disciples viewed the amazing example of Jesus' quiet surrender, they learned of the miracle-working power of letting go and letting God. Their eyes and minds and hearts were opened to the message of abundant life, eternal life, and love for all humanity.
God's love and goodness will always fill every need in your circumstances, every hunger of your heart, every longing of your soul for peace and assurance, and every good desire for the expression of eternal life and well-being.
Although it may sometimes seem you are separated from that which has been your greatest avenue of comfort, security, or supply, remember: God always fills your need. No matter how great the gulf seems between you and the solution to your deepest desire, you can trust God. Tell yourself again and again, as often as you need to do so: I let go. I let God fill my need.
Let go. Let God fill your need. God never leaves a void. God will never desert you or forsake you. God's presence of love and wisdom is ever nurturing your soul in its gradual unfoldment of spiritual potential. God's power is ever at work within every circumstance. As you let go and trust God, everything is transformed—yes, everything—into a blessing. God continuously makes dark places light, rough places smooth, crooked places straight, and empty places full—full of loving-kindness and abundance of joy.
Let go. Let God fill your need. Let the creative process of God begin now to fill every point in your life that needs the touch of divine love and healing power. God is ready to do what you cannot do by yourself.

Happy Tale All Year

Snip, clip, wash and dry! Groom your dog like a pro.
Ever watched your dog roll on the ground, lick It's coat or chew at a mat on It's fur? These doggy ways of keeping clean. Sometimes, though, the pooch need a little extra help from a friend to look at It's best.
Make Grooming as Enjoyable as Possible—For the Both of You!
Grooming sessions should always be fun, so be sure to schedule them when your dog's relaxed, especially if the dog is the excitable type. Until your pet is used to being groomed, keep the sessions short—just 5 to 10 minutes. Gradually lengthen the time until it becomes routine for your dog. You can help your dog get comfortable with being touched and handled by making a habit of petting every single part of your furry friend, including such potentially sensitive areas as the ears, tail, belly, back and paws.
And the very most important tips of all—pile on the praise and offer your pooch a treat when the session is finished. 

Keep your doggy nice and clean by:
1. Removing loose hair and mats with a thorough brushing
2. Getting rid of dirt and odor by bathing
3. Expressing the anal gland to prevent future infection
4. Cleaning the ears to prevent wax or moisture build up, both of which can lead to infection
5. Nail clipping to prevent ingrown nail issues, as well as to protect your furniture
6. Keeping the dog’s hair short by trimming or clipping.
7. Keeping dental issues at bay by brushing the teeth
8. Making sure that the dog’s eyes stay bright and healthy looking

Special Breeds, Special Needs
Dogs with loose facial skin or wrinkles—such as shar peis and pugs—will need special attention. To prevent dirt and bacteria from causing irritation and infection, clean the folds with damp cotton. Always thoroughly dry the areas between the folds.

Get to know your dog to see how often you need to maintain these routines. Before you try out things you're unsure of, make sure to talk to your vet.

godiz - Look out for your pet's needs please.

Dress 2 Impress

The reality is that very few people have perfectly proportioned bodies. We can either mope around and wish that we had a different body; or we can dress appropriately and streamline our lovely bodies to create balance! But before that you’ll need to ascertain which body type you tend towards irrespective of our height. There are 5 main body types:
  • Pear – when the width of your torso is smaller than the width of your hips. You’ll constantly want to balance the difference between the top and bottom part of your body
  • Hourglass – when you are well proportioned with a shapely bust and defined waist. You’ll always want to strive to look taller and slimmer
  • Rectangle – when you are well proportioned and relatively lean but lack curves. You’ll want create a bust and those curves to keep you feminine.
  • Apple – when you are well proportioned but with a little bit of extra around the middle. You’ll want to create shape and disguise your midriff
  • Inverted Triangle – when the width of your shoulders and torso is wider than the width of your hips. You’ll want to soften your shoulders and perhaps your bust line, and add volume to the lower part of your body
This guide is only to help balance your shape. Once you know which body type you tend towards, you’ll know how to select clothes that bring you balance. Whether you want to follow these guide-lines or not? Feel free! Either way... Celebrate and love your beautiful body. 

The Message

Romans 12

King James Version (KJV)
12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.
For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us prophesy according to the proportion of faith;
Or ministry, let us wait on our ministering: or he that teacheth, on teaching;
Or he that exhorteth, on exhortation: he that giveth, let him do it with simplicity; he that ruleth, with diligence; he that sheweth mercy, with cheerfulness.
Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.
10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;
11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;
12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
13 Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.
14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men.
18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men.
19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.
20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.
21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

How 2 Hold a Good Posture

Good Posture
Find More at the Greatist Fitness Blog

Posture is about far more than looking confident and poised. Sitting or standing in the right position makes sure our bodies function properly. Here we look at posture and how to improve yours starting today.

Is It Really That Bad?

Just what’s so terrible about having poor posture, besides not looking as sharp as you could? Quite a bit as it turns out. When you slouch or slump, so does your spine, leading to bad circulation. This can cause vertebrae to deteriorate over time. Chronic fatigue can also result. Coupled with circulation issues, the result can be early exhaustion. Chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain can also result from the strain of bad positioning. Fifty percent of working Americans suffer from back pain, and it’s the second most common reason for doctor visits. Twenty five percent of those with back pain suffer from a herniated disc, which may be caused by poor posture.

What Causes Bad Posture?

Bad posture isn’t always a sign of laziness. As a nation, weight issues are becoming more common, and weight gain changes how our skeleton and muscles support themselves. We also tend to be less active, which can lead to increased risk of disease. Chairs, hunching at work, unsupportive mattresses, and even low self-esteem contribute to these problems.

Great Posture in Every Position

Here’s a quick test to check your posture. Stand with the back of your head against a wall, place heels 6 inches from the wall. Your buttocks and shoulder blades should touch the wall. There should be less than 2 inches between your neck or small of the back and the wall. A larger gap indicates bad posture and a curving spine. When sitting, keep your head straight and not tilted up or down. Keep your shoulders back and try to relax. Sit with your knees slightly lower than your hips. Keep your feet flat on the floor. Don’t try to keep your back ramrod straight, and don’t work without support for your arms. Don’t tuck your feet under the chair or cross your legs above the knees. When standing, keep your shoulders back and aligned. Use your stomach muscles to keep your body straight. Slightly bend your knees to ease pressure on the hips, and use quality shoes that offer good support. Don’t stick your chest out. Instead, try to keep your chest perpendicular to the ground. Don’t stand in the same position for long periods of time, and don’t wear high heels when standing for long periods of time. When walking, keep your chin parallel to the ground and hit the ground with your heel first, then roll onto the toe. Keep your stomach and buttocks in line with the rest of the body. Don’t look down at your feet. Don’t arch your back. When running, keep your head up and looking forward. Keep your arms loose and elbows at a 90 degree angle. Lean forward slightly, and hit the ground with the midpoint of your foot and roll it forward to the toe. Don’t hunch your shoulders, bend at the waist, or lift your knees too high. When sleeping, use a firm mattress that provides support. Minimize spinal curves by using pillows as necessary or upgrading your mattress. Stretch before bed to ease tense muscles, and sleep on your side with a pillow between your legs, on your back, or under your knees for better support. Don’t sleep on your stomach. It can cause pressure on the cervical spine. Don’t sleep with a tall stack of pillows that causes your neck to bend unnaturally.
Improve Your Lifestyle to Improve Your Posture
The problem Stiff muscles in the back of your neck
The fix Moving only your head, drop your chin down and in toward your sternum while stretching the back of your neck. Hold for a count of five; do this 10 times a day.
The problem Weakness in the middle and lower parts of your trapezius (the large muscle that spans your shoulders and back)
The fix Lie facedown on the floor, with each arm at a 90-degree angle in the high-five position. Without changing your elbow angle, raise both arms by pulling your shoulders back and squeezing your shoulder blades together. Hold for five seconds. That's one rep; do two or three sets of 12 reps daily.
The problem Tight hip flexors
The fix Kneel on your left knee, with your right foot on the floor in front of you, knee bent. Press forward until you feel the stretch in your left hip. Tighten your butt muscles on your left side until you feel the front of your hip stretching comfortably. Reach upward with your left arm and stretch to the right side. Hold for a count of 30 seconds. That's one repetition; do three on each side.
The problem The muscle under your chest (running from your ribs to your shoulder blades) is weak.
The fix Sit upright in a chair with your hands next to your hips, palms down on the seat, arms straight. Without moving your arms, push down on the chair until your hips lift up off the seat and your torso rises. Hold for five seconds. That's one repetition; do two or three sets of 12 reps daily.
The problem Weak glutes (butt muscles)
The fix Lie on one side with your knees bent 90 degrees and your heels together. Keeping your hips still, raise your top knee upward, separating your knees like a clamshell. Pause for five seconds, then lower your knee to the starting position. That's one rep. Perform two or three sets of 12 reps on each side daily.
The problem Your oblique muscles and hip flexors are weak.
The fix Get into a pushup position with your feet resting on a stability ball. Without rounding your lower back, tuck your knees under your torso, using your feet to roll the ball toward your body, then back to the starting position. That's one rep. Do two or three sets of six to 12 reps daily.
Assess your posture
Wear something form-fitting and take two full-body photos—one from the front, one from the side. Relax your muscles and stand as tall as you can, feet hip-width apart. Then refer to the fix-it plan (below left) to diagnose your posture problems.
1 / Look at your ear. If it's in front of the midpoint of your shoulder, your head is too far forward.
2 / Can you see your shoulder blade? That means your back is too rounded.
3 / If your hips tilt forward and you have a belly pooch (even if you don't have an ounce of fat on your body) and your lower spine is arched significantly, this means you have an anterior pelvic tilt.
4 / Look at your shoulders. One shouldn't appear higher than the other.
5 / Check out your kneecaps. Do they point inward, causing your knees to touch when your legs are straightened?
6 / See if you're duck-footed. Your toes will point outward more than 10 degrees.

Ice Ice Baby

Walking down memory lane in my old neigbourhood... Got me thinking of ice cream. The blue one used to always be a favorite of mine, as a youngster. This time around i decided to step out of the "ice box" to try the new edition "pink" It actually tasted real good. Though the ol'school one is still one of my faves. Yummilicious!
