In some places school has either just started or is about to start. Someone sent me this poem about going back to school. The author is unknown although it says it was written by a 15 year-old middle schooler (or a 9th grader) in Minnesota. The poem is a little "heavy" but poignant and worth the read. This is not recommended reading for your elementary or preschool kids.
Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule.
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd.
If Scripture now the class recites
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now.
Our hair can be purple, orange or green
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice.
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate
God's name is prohibited by the State.
We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks
And pierce our noses, tongues, and cheeks.
They've outlawed guns, but first the Bible
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen
And the 'unwed daddy' our Senior King.
It's intolerant to teach right from wrong
We're taught that such judgments don't belong.
We can get our condoms and birth controls
Study witchcraft, vampires, and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed
No word of God must reach this crowd.
It's scary here I must confess
When chaos reigns this school's a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make
Should I be shot, my soul please take.
We all need divine intervention, especially in middle and high schools. Interested in introducing angels to your schools? We have curriculum for ALL ages - even high school. Have your teachers and principals reach out to us whether they are in a public school or private school. We will help them incorporate angels all around their schools!

Have you ever burned yourself? Whether in the kitchen cooking or roasting something over an open fire burns can happen in an instant. A couple weeks ago as I was pulling lasagna out of the oven my arm got too close to the wire rack and "ouch!" I got burned.
Recently an article was in the paper about a burn cure that was unheard of to me. The article did not mention aloe vera even though that is a good one to cool burns. It mentioned a common household item as a means to not only take the "ouch" out of the burn but to completely heal it so that the burn mark disappears. The trick was to submerse the burn almost immediately and not delay.
Are you curious as to what nondescript grocery item could do all this? It's soy sauce. Yes, soy sauce. I couldn't believe it either. Who knew burns are better with soy sauce? Next time someone in the fam gets burned we will be reaching for the soy sauce. I will report back and let you know how it tested in our house. Not that we are eager or seeking to get burned to test this home remedy out.
So if by accident you or someone you know gets burned, don't reach for the ice, the butter or the aloe reach for the soy sauce instead. Be sure and let us know if and how it worked for you. Not that we are hoping you get burned either. It's better to stay burn-free but accidents do happen.

Think, learn, succeed, these are all things we want to do, right? Ask anyone on the street, "Hey, if you had the choice to think, learn, and succeed or have mush for brains, be a dummy, and fail; which would you choose?" Most probably all of them would say the former. Think, Learn, Succeed is the title of a new book by Dr. Caroline Leaf that I recently started reading. The subtitle reads "Understanding and Using Your Mind to Thrive at School, the Workplace, and Life."
Dr. Caroline Leaf is one of my favorite authors. One reason she is a favorite is not only because her material is that good but also because her material is multi-sensory. She has the books you can hold in your hand and read. She has books on audio and ebook format. She has a tv show on TBN. She has tons of video on You Tube and elsewhere you can watch and learn from. She has speaking engagements so she can be seen live and in person. And she has an online community for her 21-day brain detox. She also has a workbook for the Switch On Your Brain book and dvd for her new book. So many avenues to be enriched, learn, and grow from.
In the Prologue and Introduction alone of her newest book there was so much research and insight I thought it was already the first chapter! When I turned the page and saw, "Section One The Mindset Guide" I turned back to see what it was that I had just read that had so many nuggets. No neurological stone is unturned in her books and she is not shy about bucking her colleagues or the medical field when they prescribe meds as a quick fix. Read all about it and why it is detrimental to you, your family, and society as a whole. Very insightful. Very informative. Very much worthy of your time.
