A Very Busy, Fun Week!

This had been a great, but very busy, week!  Last Friday at 1:30 a.m.. 3 of my grandchildren, Daniel's girlfriend and I left for a Youth Retreat in California.  It was fun and inspirational!  I loved the worship, in particular.  Here is a very short clip to let you see those amazing young people worshipping Jesus!

Before the conference began on Friday night we went to see the beautiful Sundial Bridge and enjoy the California sunshine.

During the Saturday afternoon break in the conference we drove out into the countryside to see the fire damage.  We were all amazed to see homesteads burnt totally to the ground with charred automobiles and appliances the only thing left.

Of course, being with the kids was a wonderful treat!!  On the way home Sunday, the plane that was supposed to take us from Redding to San Francisco had a mechanical problem.  It didn't get to Redding to pick us up until after our flight from S.F. left for Indy. There were no other flights that afternoon so the airline paid for 2 hotel rooms and gave us $20 each to eat and then booked us on a flight at 11:10 a.m. on Monday morning.

When we arrived at the hotel we checked with the concierge about going downtown.  She suggested getting a taxi since it would take us awhile to figure out the BART and it was already 5:00 p.m.  We took a taxi to Pier 39.  It was a fun evening.  Of course, the seals at the Pier were especially intriguing to us Midwesterners.

We watched an acrobat who was also very funny, perform some amazing feats.

We ended the evening at Boudin's for clam chowder in a sourdough bowl.  YUM!

The overnight stay in San Francisco was a wonderful bonus to an already blessed trip!  We arrived home around 7:30 on Monday night.  

And then our friends Melinda Fish and her sister, Danna Kay, arrived Thursday.  They will be here till Monday morning.  It's great to get to spend extra time with them!

Something Else to Think About in Dealing With Breast Cancer

I have been putting together a series of classes on integrated healing.  Since we are body, mind, spirit and emotions it is often necessary to heal the last three before physical healing can occur.  As I was working on Generational Sins, Diseases and Curses, I came across this amazing information in Henry Wright's book A More Excellent Way. 

"Cysts or tumors that appear in the left breast tissue seem to follow unresolved bitterness and conflict between that female and another female blood relative, such as mother, sister, aunt, grandmother.  Tumors or cuysts that appear in the right breast seem to be the result of unresolved bittrness and conflict between the female who has the tumors and another female (non-blood relative) such as a mother-in-law or a person in the workplace or a person in the church.  Although there are exemptions, this observation is holding true in over 80% of all cancer cases,  There are an increasing number of females who are being healed.  In fact, breast tumors just disappear when that woman forgives another female. "  p. 186.

This seems to me to be something to take note of and to check out.  If you, or someone you know, has breast cancer it would be good to make sure you don't have any unforgiveness or bitterness towards other women in your family or circle of friends.

What do you think?  I would love to hear if you know anyone for which this seems to be true.

More Than Mammography: Know Your Options for Breast Cancer Testing By Dr. Veronique Desaulniers

Because I continue to hear of women who say they have an annual mammogram, I decide to post part of this article on my blog.  You can read the rest of it on the website.  I also posted the link at the end of the post.

I stopped having mammograms sevral years ago after having two surgical breast biopsies, both of which were benign.  The pain, cost, inconvenience, stress and additional radiation made me realize I wasn't willing to pay that price.  It was only later I began hearing that at least 10% of breast cancers are caused by mammograms.  This and othr information certainly confirmed my decision.  Read the following and see what you think.

More Than Mammography: Know Your Options for Breast Cancer Testing

In a hurry? Click here to read the Article Summary...

Editor’s Note: This article first appeared in the March 2017 edition of TTAC’s Heroes Against Cancer member newsletter. The availability of the tests mentioned in this article may be limited based on your location and FDA approval.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, which every year means sweeping campaigns from organizations such as the Susan G. Komen Foundation encouraging women to practice prevention with the focus mostly on getting regular mammograms.
The focus on breast cancer this month is a wonderful opportunity for education in general, including knowing about the alternatives to mammograms for early detection.
In fact, this information is being sought after by more and more women. Statistics from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) reveal that close to 40% of all adults in the U.S. utilize complementary and alternative medicine – and more than likely you’re one of them.
Now the time has come to add alternative and complementary testing procedures to your cancer prevention and healing toolbox.

The Scary Truth About Mammograms

Mammograms are the go-to mode of breast cancer detection that is promoted by the established medical industry. The choice as to whether or not to get a mammogram is an individual one.
In order to make an informed decision, however, it is important to know the cold, hard facts. And the most glaring fact is that within the last year and a half, major organizations like the American Cancer Society (ACS) have changed their tune about their mammogram testing recommendations.
As of October 2015, the ACS recommends that American women get tested annually starting at 45 years of age (it was 40 previously) and that women aged 55 and older cut back to one test every two years. This change was prompted by a 2013 report published by the U.S. Preventative Task Force which recommended delaying mammograms for healthy women in order “to reduce the harms of mammography screening by nearly half.
The specifics of these harms have remained somewhat vague; the mainstream media has mostly focused on the high number of “false positives” that mammograms produce. Indeed, approximately 20% of all initial breast cancer diagnoses wind up being “false positives,” which often lead to unnecessary biopsies and even rounds of chemo and radiation – not to mention a lot of unnecessary emotional stress.
There is more to the dangers of mammograms than what is regularly being discussed, however. Mammograms expose very sensitive tissue to low-level radiation which accumulates in the body with each visit.
In fact, according to a 2006 study conducted by the University Hospital in Birmingham, U.K., “Recent radiobiological studies have provided compelling evidence that the low energy X-rays as used in mammography are approximately four times – but possibly as much as six times – more effective in causing mutational damage than higher energy X-rays.” In addition, the extreme manipulation of the breast tissue that typically happens during a mammogram may in fact cause tumors to spread.
Perhaps the most startling fact about mammograms is that in reality they do not detect breast cancer any more than a regular self-exam can.
In fact, in the most comprehensive and sweeping study on mammograms to date, researchers from the University of Toronto monitored 90,000 women over the course of 25 years. The study, which was published by the British Medical Journal in 2014 found that mortality rates from breast cancer (and from all other causes) was the same both for women who got mammograms and those who did not. It also discovered that one in five cancers “discovered” through mammograms was in reality not a health threat.
“It will make women uncomfortable, and they should be uncomfortable,” Dr. Russell P. Harris, a professor of medicine at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill who specializes in screenings, told the New York Times at the time, in reference to the study’s findings. “The decision to have a mammogram should not be a slam dunk.” 
No modality is going to be 100% accurate when it comes to spotting breast cancer. However, there is technology out there now which can now safely and effectively detect these cancers, sometimes years before a lump or bump appears.

7 Tests for Breast Cancer Your Doctor May Not Even Know About

#1 – Thermography 

If you’re looking for a non-invasive and safe diagnostic tool as an alternative or a complement to mammograms, then getting a thermography screening may be the right option for you. Thermography, also known as Digital Infrared Thermographic Imaging (DITI), detects areas of heat in the body which can point to areas where inflammation may be occurring.
Because of this, thermography may be able to detect physiological breast cancers even when they are just the size of a pinhead.
In fact, a 2008 study published in The American Journal of Surgery found that breast thermography in particular has a 97% “sensitivity rating” for discovering malignancies, sometimes years before a visible tumor has been formed.
Thermography can be especially effective for women who have been diagnosed as having “Dense Breast Syndrome,” where mammary tissue is denser and more fibrous than normal. While thermography is covered by health insurance in many countries outside the U.S., it has yet to be covered by most American providers.
More and more alternative health clinics are offering the service at affordable prices, however, including integrative health centers, Ayurvedic centers, acupuncturists, and chiropractors.
To find a certified thermography technician in your area, I recommend contacting the American College of Clinical Thermography.

Prophecy for Retirees in This Hour: 'The Eagle Has Landed!' by Bill Yount

I like this word for those of us in the "older generation".  I don't plan to retire--but I can always use a "refiring"!    This was sent in the Charisma email newsletter today.  It is a word given by Bill Yount.

Prophecy for Retirees in This Hour: 'The Eagle Has Landed!'

I received this word in 2004, and the Lord just reminded me of it recently as I awoke with the words resounding in my ears: "The Eagle has landed!" This word has returned with great momentum and urgency as though its fullness of time has come. Let this word empower you in this season. God has so much more for us at any age. Psalm 68:28a (KJV) says, "Thy God hath commanded thy strength." God is commanding His strength into you. One translation (NLT) says, "Your God has decided you will be strong!" Remember, "too old" is not in the Bible.
Warning: The content of the following message contains very strong language that may not be suitable to those 62 years or older. Those nearing the age of "retirement" must proceed with reading at own risk. Discretion is strongly advised.
I see a divine interruption coming to the state of Florida and regions of the world that have become famous for retirement. I saw God, like an eagle, coming to this state. I saw this eagle circling around Orlando, Florida. I heard the Father saying to the angels, "We are going to Disney World!" I saw the eagle landing first upon Disney World.
I sensed the Father saying, "I am stirring up a creative, childlike faith and anointing that was similar to Walt Disney's anointing as a child. I am going to impart this anointing into the lives of older people to dream again, to invent and to create things that have not yet been seen or heard of 'witty inventions.'"
Creative Anointing Is Going to Push Back the Age Barrier
When Walt Disney was a child in grade school, his teacher asked the class to draw a picture of a flower garden. After handing in their assignments, the teacher walked back to Walt Disney's desk and said to him, "Walt, flowers don't have faces." Walt Disney responded, "Mine do!"
I sense that kind of creative anointing is beginning to come upon older men and women that is going to cause them to live longer with a childlike excitement that they have never known. This creative anointing is going to push back the age barrier of sickness, disease and infirmities, extending life to 120 years for many in the near future.
'Refiring for the Retiring'
I saw God, like an eagle, landing upon retirement centers and upon older people who have come to these places thinking they are retiring. But God says, "There's a 'refiring' coming upon the 'retiring.' This divine interruption and nest-stirring is coming upon these chosen ones, for they have great wisdom in their ages, and with their years comes understanding. I have need of them!" The fire of God is beginning to fall upon retirement centers, and their strength shall be renewed "as an eagle."
"Rocking" chairs were turning into "rocket" chairs! Even as John Glenn in his '70s was launched again into outer space, older people in this state will be launched into the harvest. Expect God to stir and shake as many are lifted off of their launching pads beginning in Florida and then beyond. I sense the Father saying, "There are some rides in the Spirit coming that you haven't been on yet."
'Fathers Live!'
I saw the initials for the state of Florida, "FL," lighting up and standing for 'Fathers Live!' —a heavenly proclamation calling forth the older men, the fathers, who have come to this state to settle down. God says, "This is not your place of rest! I am calling you to live and not die. With long life I will satisfy you and show you My salvation. I am extending to you a strong call to mentor the younger men and children in this fatherless generation. These young children and men will keep you young as you impart My wisdom and understanding into them."
I believe the Lord has chosen Florida to activate this word and to launch this proclamation internationally.

"I'm Going to Reposition and Realign this Government' Plus "Prophetic Words for the Nations" Curt Landry

An exciting word I received from The Elijah List!

NOTE: This word, given on September 28, 2018, came after Curt Landry read and prayed over a word to the House of David congregation from Lana Vawser's September 26th word posted on The Elijah List: "United States of America—The Lion of Judah is Stepping in and Breaking Delays!"
Lord, prepare our hearts for major change in our government. Lord, prepare our hearts to be able to trust You with things that we don't understand. Amen.
I heard the Lord say, "I'm going to reposition and realign this government. I'm the only One who knows the hearts of the men and women who are serving. In this season, don't speak against any of My children—right or left. For I will give salvation and a way out to each. They will either choose life or choose death. If they choose death, I will remove them from their position of authority."
"Winter is over in the spirit. Spring is here at last!"
"There are some who have been held back, as they are in the wrong position for the mantle that I am releasing now. Some have even threatened to quit and retire early. But I will visit them in the night hours with fresh anointings and fresh assignments. Just as a child is discouraged when he has special abilities and is held back by a traditional system, I have those in My government who are 'special children' who need to be raised up now. There are some who I will retire as well. They have served, and now they will be put to the side for the younger ones to rise up."
The Lord says, "Pray for Trey Gowdy. For I am releasing a fresh mantle and a new anointing, and I will move him into a very strong position because he is My servant and he has My heart."
The Lord is Changing the Sound
The Lord showed me that every place where they have had Trump rallies, those places will become places of great public revival, as in the days of Billy Graham. The Lord says, "It will start in the first strike state, in Evansville, Indiana. I am going to change the sound of the Trump rallies. There are going to be people like Dr. Troy Daily, who started the Trump rallies with prayer; but now these rallies will become evangelistic outreaches in 2020—they will go out in revival. They will become revival-driven, governmental rallies to bring the righteous together to cleanse this nation. There will not be a separation of Church and state. They will be righteous and righteous. Many will fight it, as the religious will not like it. 
"I'm changing My sound...I will send a new sound and it will be holy. There will be healing, signs and wonders, and evangelists who will actually go out before President Trump comes to speak. President Trump will take on more of a roll as an evangelist than that of a prophet, as he is doing now. I am going to soften his heart and I am going to anoint him. These rallies won't necessarily be Republican or Democrat—they will be Kingdom rallies to raise up this nation."
A Turning of Hearts and Shifting of Nations
The Lord says, "I want you to receive this now, because the atmosphere has shifted...and nothing has ever been seen like this before. Leaders, like Kim Jong-un, will come to this nation. As Malachi chapter 4:6 says that the hearts of the fathers will be turned to the sons, and the hearts of the sons to the fathers, he (Kim Jong-un) will actually receive the Lord the next time he comes to the United StatesHe will accept the Lord in the White House because of the Father's love for President Donald J. Trump to raise up his nation (North Korea). And his nation and their resources will not be squandered nor stolen by China," says the Lord. "They will become part of a new economy that the Lord is raising up.
"Don't be upset with the readjustments of the trade deals. These trade deals are from Me and not from your president. For I despise unbalanced scales—I despise bribes and tariffs. I am going to balance the sheep nations' economies so that I can pour out more on them."
The Lord says, "I will raise up new leadership in China. They will be raised up, for the Mongolians have been praying for them in deep intercession. There has been deep intercession in Taiwan. There will be a shift—that shift will come out of Taiwan. Taiwan will lead the Asia-Pacific Rim—that ring of fire. They will become an altar that will shift that region to stand and align with Israel. They will become like Tel Aviv. They will be a start-up nation and they will be equipped with power and with purpose."
The Lord says, "The nations of the earth need to see grace and they need to see compassion. The biggest test for grace and compassion over this nation will come when Iran needs our help—the help of the United States.They will need to cry out and ask us for help because there is a major earthquake coming. It will come in the area where they have their nuclear facilities. There will be a Chernobyl nuclear-type disaster, and they will cry out for help. The only nations who will help them will be the United States and Israel.(Photo via Pixabay)
"We are not to judge them, for the prayers of My saints in Iran have caused the earth to tremble. Don't underestimate what they have...for they have been underestimated. What Israel can't take care of, I can take care of easier through the shaking of this nation. The reason that I will shake it is because of the anointing that is on Cyrus. The Medo-Persian Cyrus anointing is upon Donald J. Trump. In this shifting I will give him the treasures and the hidden treasures that are in Iran. And there will be new trade deals that will be made with Saudi Arabia, because I am shifting this nation into not being so co-dependent on oil. I am shifting you into other technologies for your own good and your own health."
The Lord says, "You are going to have to be flexible in this hour. You are going to have to be flexible in this hour. Just as this past week created great anxiety and pressure for many—what was exposed, I needed to expose so that My children would cry out for help.
"I will heal the Kavanaugh family, and I will even heal Mrs. Ford. Let those who have been falsely accusing or incorrectly accusing all come into light this week. 
"I will send a new sound and it will be holy."
"The Lord loves mercy. The Lord loves grace. If the United States is to be a super power, it needs to be a super power of mercy and grace. Her strength is in her economy and in her military," the Lord says, "but don't underestimate the strength of alignment with My Word and with My covenant. For My Word and My covenant are everlasting. Don't be shortsighted," says the Lord, "for this life is but a vapor, and I am going to use this nation for the harvest of the world.
The Lion of Judah Will Rest Upon the U.S.A
"The reason that I am having you put up boundaries is to protect the righteous. For I will bring the righteous into the nation and in through the proper channels. The protection of the borders is for the order to keep the evil out. For My Word has borders and My knowledge has borders, and your country needs borders. For it is not ill-gotten, nor anti-immigration; it is anti-evil," says the Lord. 
"For I have called you to be a bright light. I have waited many years for the Lion of Judah to rest upon this nation. For My prophetess (Lana Vawser) saw correctly. There is a paw in the northeast. There is a paw in the northwest. There is a paw in the southeast, and there is a paw in the southwest. For My Lion will rest upon this nation. For I have heard the cries of the righteous.
"I will reverse Roe vs. Wade. I will reverse the removal of prayer out of schools, because I love My children more than you love your children,"says the Lord. "I will protect My children and I will raise them up in righteousness, for I have blessed this nation. I will heal your land and I will, in 2019, send My Lion of Judah into all of the native tribes in America, to visit them with the roar of the Lion of Judah that will heal them from all false identity and covenant-breaking robbery that has happened to them ever since they have been in this country." The Lord says, "I will visit them in a unique way and restore them. And that sleeping giant (the Native American people) that Dr. Billy Graham spoke about in Oklahoma City—you will see its great awakening, and it will happen in 2019."
Be Diligent—He will Exalt You in Due Season
The Lords says, "Be diligent watchmen. Be disciplined in fasting and prayer. Be humble, slow to speak, slow to anger. Listen to Me, don't worry so much about draining the swamp as you are about restructuring over the swamp. For I will put pillars in their place. I build over the swamp, so the swamp cannot touch those who walk on My pillars and My structures. For the swamp has its appointed day and appointed time, and it is not yet time for it to be removed. For I have My time and you have your time. For I always build over the top of anything that resists Me when you surrender to Me.
"Times will be tough, and battles will rage. Don't ask Me to remove pressure from My herdsmen, for they are those who will bring the lost to My house," says the Lord. "Build your houses upon the Rock. Build your houses high and lifted up, and I will exalt you in due season. Remember that your alignment is not on this earth, but from above. Trust Me. Remember, I created the flames as well as the furnace. I use darkness and light. The darkness in this hour is what I use to highlight you as My light. I will empower you with the greatest Shekinah glory and the greatest light that you have ever seen. It will even fall in the White House.
"There will be visitations. As tough as Donald J. Trump is, he will be overcome by the Holy Spirit...even on television. My fire will fall, and people will make comments that he is weak and unstable, but it will be the Holy Spirit. For I will operate in healing, power and signs and wonders through his hand. As he firmly looks into the eyes of leaders, he will release the glory of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob...and I will give nations over to My Kingdom through the shaking of that hand. Lift him up. Stand in agreement. Be hopeful. For My Word says, 'Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life'(Proverbs 13:12). This is My time for the tree of life," says the Lord. "This is My window of time. Winter is over in the spirit. Spring is here at last!" (Photo via Pixabay)
Prayer: Lord, I remove all fear, hopelessness, shame and anger that was released from Hell over the United States this past week. I thank You that the righteous cannot be stopped, and I will not fear to walk in righteousness. My past is under the Blood of Jesus. I am the forgiven of the Lord. My past indiscretions have been removed by the Blood of Jesus. They have been blown by the wind of the Spirit as far as the east is from the west, and the north is from the south. I do not walk in fear of accusations, for the accuser of the brethren cannot accuse me because I am a co-heir with Christ. I am redeemed. We seal it, in Yeshua's name. (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)

Built-in Laundry Baskets

This morning when I saw the dark clothes basket was full and threw them into the washer I was again  grateful that I installed these sorting baskets in the laundry room.  I think this is one of the most helpful ideas I incorporated into our house when we built it.  I thought that if you, or anyone else you know, is building a house or remodeling a laundry or bath area, you might like to see how great they work.

I sort my laundry when I bring it to the laundry room into three baskets. One for towels, one for dark clothes and one for white clothes.  Each one holds a full load of laundry so if it is full when I open it, I throw it in the washer.  With this system I am seldom ever behind on the laundry--maybe the folding or putting away 😃--but at least the clothes are clean.

There are actually 4 baskets here. The one that is almost out of the photo I use to store clean clothes that need ironing.

Frank Laubach Suggestion

The other day as I was sorting through old notes I had taken I came across this suggestion  from Frank Laubach.   It seemed good to post it here for all of us to read and try.

Frank often used visualization to pray for others.  I remember reading several different stories of him sending loving thoughts to those he saw were downcast on buses, in meetings, etc.  He would watch as a change came over their countenance.

Have you ever read his Game With Minutes in which he attempts to see how much of each day he can fill his mind with thoughts of Jesus?  It is an excellent exercise.

Anyway,  the note I found said that Frank encouraged us to envision ourselves walking into a person's house (we know in dream interpretation that a house often represents the person) and saying,

"The Sprit of Jesus floods your mind and heart." 

 He used this as a type of intercessory prayer for individuals.
