Wow! 2020 has been such a trying year for so many of us for so many reasons and we’re still not completely out of the woods.
Luckily, it would seem that we are jumping into a New Year with renewed hope that things will at least start to get better. Still, there are way to many things that need to be worked on.
Obviously, first and foremost, this Pandemic needs to be addressed as it’s not been addressed in the past and we need to push forward at light speed in attempts to rid our country and the world of this horrible Coronavirus that has already taken so many good people and still threatens so many.
Next, even though it’s been contentious, and nasty we need to work on the fact that we still live in the United States of America. Not the United states of Republicans or the United States of Democrats.
Our political climate has polarized all of us so much that it is way to dangerously close to inciting a new age civil war. One which serves absolutely NO ONE.
It is truly sad that for so many years we have had political leaders who have chosen to alienate us from one another rather than to unite us and work to make this a country of ONE People.
We need to start working to get closer to that. We need to start working to get closer to being a society where every race, even though embracing their individual heritage strives to work away from alienating other races.
We need to move away from recognizing one race over another. Move away from promoting one race over another another. We must move forward to where we treat every single race as OUR OWN RACE no matter what the color of our skin is.
If this great country of ours is destined to succeed it must succeed as a country United as one. A country where each and every citizen strives for equality for one another.
This is the way. The way GOD ordains and the way the dark side tries to keep pushing us away from. Remember that in each and every day.
When you push towards exclusion you are not serving the LORD.
Just another Point of View. Happy New Year and blessing to you and your loved ones.
Wow, we’re here. The end of an old, tough year and the start of a brand new one to mold as best we can into a better one than the one before.
So we thought we’d start out the brand new year with a healthy Lo Carb Recipe, High Fber, Oatmeal Cookie Recipe.
Here are the Infgredients you’ll need to get them done
• 1 cup butter, at room temperature
• 1 1⁄2 cups sugar substitue (I recommend Splenda)
• 1 tablespoon molasses
• 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
• 2 Eggs
• 1 cup almonds, ground
• 1⁄4 cup oat bran
• 1 cup vanilla protein powder
• 1 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 2 tablespoons flax seed meal
• 2 cups oasts
• 1 cup raisins
Mix together butter, Splenda, molasses and pumpkin pie spice until creamy. Add eggs and beat until smooth.
In a separate bowl mix together ground almonds, oat bran, vanilla protein powder, baking soda, salt, flaxseed meal and oatmeal. Add slowly to butter mix and blend well.
Add raisins and mix again. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 cookie sheets with cooking spray and drop dough onto them.
These cookies do not spread out very much so you may want to press them down a little bit. The less you press them out the fatter and chewier they are.
Bake 8-10 minutes and Viola. Allow cookies to cool a bit and you’re ready to enjoy your home made, healthy treat.
Happy, Healthy Eating and Happy New Year!

Tis’ the season to be Jolly and the season to continue to be thankful for the many little things in life as we rapidly rush towards a brand new year.
The fact that America may be headed in a totally different direction whether we like it or not and the fact that maybe we should embrace what ever change comes with that in hope that it makes things better for the most of us.
The fact that even though we are still amid a pandemic we have learned enough about this dreaded disease to allow many of us to protect ourselves if only we are smart enough to take the advise of medical experts and do what they suggest,
The fact that though we may have lost someone close to us that we still have so many other family and friends around to comfort us and provide a shoulder for us when we truly need it.
The fact that though our finances may be tight that we still have enough to put food in our bellies, a roof over our heads and a way to get around from place to place.
As many of us start thinking about our new year’s resolutions it’s time to think about how we’re going to help usher in a new year of hope and prosperity.
We should take into consideration that we have the ability to make things better for ourselves and others in many more ways that we think. We just have to keep trying to motivate ourselves and think positive.
We must remember that our minds have Incredible Capabilities and that whether we understand it yet or not WE DO have the power within ourselves to make things better for us and those around us.
We must do the best we can to greet each new day with positive energy and a commitment to hope and accomplishment and then set out do conquer those things.
Happy Holidays to you and your family and may the New Year bring us all a way to conquer this pandemic that has us all on lock down. May it also bring us all a renewed financial prosperity and the health to enjoy it with our loved ones for many years to come.

CHILE RELLENO CASSEROLE - KETO
So your trying to eat right. Less Carbs and that is hard to do but did you know that even if your on a KETO Lifestyle you can still have things like Chile Relleno?
I am a huge Chile Relleno fan so when I came up on this recipe for Chile Relleno Casserole I was in KETO Heaven.
Not to mention some days are getting a bit cooler now and what a better tummy warming meal than a Chile Relleno Keto Casserole.
Here is what you’ll need to get started.
• 12 eggs 1 1/2
• 2 cups of cheese
• Salt, pepper
• 1/2c heavy whipping cream
• 2 Poblano Peppers
First you’re going to char the peppers to remove the skin. People have different ways of doing this but if you are lost as to how, simply go to Youtube and ask how to remove the skin from a Poblano Pepper and you’ll have several answers.
I find it best in the air fryer.
In a bowl whisk together your eggs, heavy cream and salt/pepper.
Skin and de-seed your Pobalano peppers and chop them up.
Spray your baking dish. Add cheese to your eggs and place egg mix into dish.
Put in your peppers and top with cheese. Place in your 350* oven until its done. Mine took 30 min to cook.
Let cool for just a second or two and you’re ready to enjoy your Chile Relleno Keto Casserole.
Happy, Healthy Eating!
This Pandemic has us all in one of the worst mental states that we have ever been in.
It’s a state that has everyone on edge and at a boiling point with each other over the smallest of things.
Look around and no matter where you go we can see friends arguing with friends even over the smallest, insignificant things. People challenging each other in the streets over the least bit thing and even worse people hurting and even killing each other over things that would normally not even matter to us.
The fact that we’ve lost our ability to be as social and free as we had learned to be has us starting to mentally implode and sadly it may just be the start of something catastrophic.
Early on in my life I learned that if I became educated enough and savvy enough I could articulate most any situation my way. I could speak out in such a manner that eventually I could convince almost anyone to see things my way.
As most of the world or maybe just the majority of people around me learned the same thing in time we had each other trying to articulate things are way more and more but was it, is it, the right thing to do?
So you see, too many folks try to articulate things in their benefit but even if it sounds great, in the end it still doesn’t make it right.
Bing articulate is an awesome thing but way to many people, by default, have come to abuse that gift.
So many and so much so that many of them believe that if you can articulate something it becomes true.
I can convince myself that I can stick my hand in the fire for a certain period of time without being hurt. Mind over matter. I may be able to keep it there for quite some time and convince myself that I’m ok but at some point my skin and flesh will tell me different from the damage being cause them.
In many cases, mind over matter is the “now you see me now you don’t” scenario that only works so long before reality rears it’s sobering head.
So you see, you can try to articulate something in one way or another as long as you can but eventually it’s true reality will rise to the surface again and again. Something that is also somewhat spiritual as I’m certain you’ve probably heard that saying “The TRUTH Shall Set You Free”.

“As the season approaches, GOD has a message for All of us today.
It is the same message he has been trying to convey and instill in us since the beginning of time.
That message is, the message of True LOVE. For without knowing True LOVE will will never know True Ascension.
You ask, “So there are different levels of ascension?” the answer is Yes and
True Ascension Can Not be attained without knowing True LOVE.
Yet to know True LOVE one must know True Forgiveness. To know True LOVE one must know how to give up all the elements of hate and evil.
You may ask, “What are the elements of hate and evil”?
They are simple to list but oh so much harder to give up but we can accomplish this through
Forgiveness. To Forgive means we have to release all hatred and all it’s elements from our heart.
What are the elements of hatred? They are few but oh so evil in nature.
Hate, greed, and selfishness are the keys of hatred. They are the keys of evil to humanity.
One could think themselves to be the greatest minister, pastor or preacher in the world, bringing millions of souls to GOD but, without knowing the True meaning of LOVE, they will never ascend to the highest level.
You see the quest for ascension has nothing to do with a competition to bring souls to GOD through preaching. It has to do with our ability to bring souls to GOD through the ministry our daily actions. It has to do with sharing our blessings with those needier than us.
We must be able to give as much as we receive and then some. If you are not giving back and equal amount to humanity as GOD is giving you, you will never know True LOVE.
No matter what the color of our skin, no matter where we were born, we must strive for True LOVE.
We must FORGIVE past transgressions by our ancestors and stop promoting one people, one race above another or we will never know what it is to be one people living in LOVE.
Until we learn how to live in LOVE the world will never be at Peace.”
