(Zentangle(R)-inspired background art by yours truly!)

Well, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and I am betting that you folks have been thinking about what kind of small gift that you would get for your child, or perhaps someone you love and care about; So, with that in mind, might I suggest that you give them the gift of reading-That’s right: You can give your children the gift of reading this coming Valentine’s Day, and the best way to do that is by purchasing my latest eBook, The Sea Centaur! 
The Sea Centaur is a tale about what happens when you have been forced to give up something for the person that you really love, and in this case, it happened to Marisa, who happens to be among a race of half-human/half-seahorse creatures called sea centaurs; After saving as well as falling in love with a shipwrecked heir to a clothing estate, Marisa must make a difficult decision in order to be with him forever…
I am hoping that The Sea Centaur would bring many hours of joy and happiness to readers everywhere; Not only is it written by yours truly, but here is an added bonus: The Sea Centaur features cartoon illustrations that I have drawn 10 years ago, back when I had been living in Philadelphia. I had been waiting for all of those years to save my very own drawings for something special, and now I finally get the chance to share them with you in my brand-new Amazon Kindle Edition eBook! Oh, and there is one other special bonus: The Sea Centaur is inspired by a certain fairy tale, one that has captivated readers for so many years: Yes, that’s right-I am talking about the one and only classic by Hans Christian Andersen, The Little Mermaid! 
And so, with Valentine’s Day coming up, I would very much like to suggest this: Purchase a digital copy of The Sea Centaur for a child you love. To order, either for your Kindle or your smartphone or tablet device that has got a Kindle app, go to this link right here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07G8FZ1T4

THE WOODCUTTER AND THE ROYAL PRINCESS By Jenn Webster


freshpaint-5-20196076322156247447921.jpg

There once was a young, but poor woodcutter, who lived long ago in a worn-out log cabin in the forest; He had been chopping wood for those whom he had served as his customers over the years, but whatever money that he had received from his customers resulted in small payments. The young woodcutter wished with all of his heart that he would have plenty enough money so that he could have a much better place of his own and at least have a much better life.
Then one day, the royal king, a ruler of the kingdom, had announced that his daughter has now turned 21 years of age, and it had now become time for her to be married; He made an announcement that he is holding a wood-cutting contest, and whoever has the best talent in terms of woodcutting shall very well have his daughter’s hand in marriage. The young woodcutter had been told of this event by one of the royal king’s servants, and so, he made plans to set out to the royal palace…

The woodcutter arrived at the royal palace for the woodcutting contest, and then he took one glance at the royal king’s daughter, the royal princess, and he began to fall in love with her; That’s when he began to think that somehow, someway, he had to put his talents to very good use if he would ever win the heart of the royal princess…

Most of the other woodcutters from various villages have practiced their talents in order to show them off at this contest, and so did the young woodcutter; So, they showed the royal princess how they cut their own wood at the contest in the palace…

First, the first woodcutter tried to make a wooden doll by trying to work his way out of doing it-By cutting wood into small, stubby sticks, and then he put them in a clay body! The royal king did not like this kind of performance. Then, it was the 2nd woodcutter’s turn; He had shown his talent for his own woodcutting by cutting his own wood alright, but he cut almost all of the wood into a teeny-weeny wooden teacup! The royal king made a facepalm and asked himself, “What was he thinking?!”
Then the 3rd woodcutter tried to cut his wood into something as best as he possibly could, but then he ended up with…Well, nothing! Alas, the 3rd woodcutter was disqualified.
Then, at last, it was the young woodcutter’s turn. He then got to work on cutting his wood…And then, his creation had turned out to be the most beautiful that one could ever imagine. It was a beautiful lace-like wooden heart, with the word “Love” in the center.

The royal princess began to like what she had seen in the young woodcutter; She began to ask how he had done it, and he replied, “I created it with my creativity that only comes from the heart.” The royal princess was never more thrilled in all of her life, and so was her father, the royal king.
And so, the royal king had proclaimed the young woodcutter the winner, and then he finally offered him the hand of his daughter in marriage; The very next day, the young woodcutter and the royal princess were finally married, and the young woodcutter became the young royal prince, and with that, he had a much more fulfilling and better life.

 

The Three Dork-a-Teers…


Not very long ago, I had announced to all of you good ‘ol bloggers and blog followers out there that I had finished causing parody-filled trouble with that crazy space Brit who flies around in that blue elevator of his, er, hers; However, I somehow began to wonder what her three stooges, er, I mean pals, have since been doing since that show is taking a hiatus; Well, we here at KALEIDOSCOPE have just found proof of that those three have been doing print magazine advertisement work, such as…

COME, FOLLOW JESUS: “More Than We Can Ask or Think”


Ephesians 3:14-21

“…but God remains the strength of my heart; He is mine forever.” (Psalm 73:26, NLT)

When babies are born, sometimes they need milk and/or soft food for nourishment in order for them to grow; For a new car to do its best work, then sometimes it has to have a check-up, its oil changed, and of course get its tank filled with gas, not to mention having to get it cleaned almost every time at the car wash as well as having it waxed every once in a while…

Now, what does it mean to have spiritual growth? Well, in order for a Christian to follow our Heavenly Father’s example, they have to pray without stopping, as well as to follow His Word through the scriptures of His Book, the Holy Bible. And yes, all Christians must follow the rules of the holy book of the Bible, so that Christians would have their spiritual nature to grow and flourish.

But what about you? What have you been doing in your life? What kind of tools that you really need in order to have your lives grow to the fullest? Have you been leading your own lives without ever knowing who the Lord God really and truly is? Have you not ever known that God loves you so very much that in order to save us all, He sent His only Son to take our place on the cross and die for us all? Well, it looks like that is very well about time for your lives to have a spiritual tune-up, and there is no better place to start than the one Who gave His life so that you could have a life that’s eternal, Jesus Christ.

In the 3rd chapter of Ephesians verses 14-21(NLT), the apostle Paul prays for us of the spiritual growth that Christians have, and that you should be having as well: “When I think of this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to Him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.”

My dearest friends, if you have been going through such hardest of times in your lives, then I would very much like for you to take heart: God loves you so very much, and He shall always love you no matter what kind of situation you are going through right now, and He wants to offer this certain invitation to you right now: To save a sin-sick world in which we are living in right now, God began to use His most deepest expression of His love for each and every one of us by sending His only Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to be born from the womb of a virgin named Mary, and then to do His Father’s will of taking our place of punishment by allowing Himsef to be whipped, beaten, forced to carry, and then be nailed to, suffering, bleeding, and then dying on the cross, shedding His blood as the ultimate payment for our sins.

And the, on the third day, our Lord God did something extravagantly wonderful: He raised His Son from the dead, defeating death as He went out of that cold, dark tomb, so that all of us could very well have eternal life. My friends, Jesus Christ will surely make His home in your heart if you ask Him to forgive you of your sins because He died for you and then invite Him to come into your heart. That’s all that you have got to do-Just ask!

“For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. Yet God, in His grace, freely makes us right in His sight. He did this through Christ Jesus when He freed us from the penalty for our sins. For God presented Jesus as the sacrifice for sin. People are made right with God when they believe that Jesus sacrificed His life, shedding His blood.” (Romans 3:23-25, NLT)

And so with that, would you like to have this free gift of salvation that has been won for us by the precious blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? Then I ask that you please pray this prayer with me: “Oh, Heavenly Father, I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Your Son, Jesus Christ, died on the cross for my sins, and that You have raised Him from the dead on the third day, defeating death so that I could have life eternal. I now ask that You please allow Your Son to come into my heart, and to let me follow Your Son always as my Savior. I thank You so very much for allowing Your Son to pay the ultimate price of His life to save me. In Your Son’s most holy and most precious name I pray. Amen.”

If you have just prayed this prayer with me, then I would very much like to welcome YOU into the Family of God! Now that you have given your heart to Jesus Christ, the very next thing that you need to do would be to read the Holy Bible, God’s blessed Word, each and every day. And when you are ready to praise, worship, and to thank our Lord God for sending His Son to pay the price for you, then I very much like for you to go to a good, Christian church each and every Sunday. I am hoping that you would make this most blessed decision of giving your very own heart to Jesus so that you could follow Him for always. I would like to thank you so very much for taking the time out of your busy schedules to read my message today while I hope that it has been a blessing to every one of you. Until the next time, may the Lord God ever so richly bless you.

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY


It is good to give thanks to the Lord , to sing praises to the Most High. It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning, your faithfulness in the evening, accompanied by a ten-stringed instrument, a harp, and the melody of a lyre. You thrill me, Lord , with all you have done for me! I sing for joy because of what you have done. O Lord , what great works you do! And how deep are your thoughts. Only a simpleton would not know, and only a fool would not understand this: Though the wicked sprout like weeds and evildoers flourish, they will be destroyed forever. But you, O Lord , will be exalted forever. Your enemies, Lord , will surely perish; all evildoers will be scattered. But you have made me as strong as a wild ox. You have anointed me with the finest oil. My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies; my ears have heard the defeat of my wicked opponents. But the godly will flourish like palm trees and grow strong like the cedars of Lebanon. For they are transplanted to the Lord ’s own house. They flourish in the courts of our God. Even in old age they will still produce fruit; they will remain vital and green. They will declare, “The Lord is just! He is my rock! There is no evil in him!”
Psalms 92:1‭-‬15 NLT

Celebrate Peanut Butter Day With The Most Delicious Dessert Ideas!


peanut butter GIF
Nothing could be ever so yummier than this…

Ahh, peanut butter, America’s most favorite health food-What could be more deliciously pleasing than that? After all, it just happens to be the most healthiest food out there, and if it had not been for a man by the name of John Harvey Kellogg, we would not have such a thing as peanut butter today, right? Way back in 1898, rather than roasting peanuts, he boiled them, and then somehow it became peanut butter, in which the Kellogg’s Western Health Reform Institute served this wonderful food paste to patients, simply because they needed a food that has a lot of protein, and peanut butter has got a LOT of protein…
Peanut butter has been spread on bread, crackers, and toast, but it has also been used in a number of other things, such as smoothies, cookies, granola, breakfast dishes, and, in these following images in which I have selected through Pinterest (www.pinterest.com), these lovely dessert ideas…

A COLD DAY AT WORK…


winter
BRRR!!!

Boy, did yours truly had a challenging day heading off to work the other day…First and foremost of all, I got up in the morning, wondering if I would ever be able to go to work do to all of that snow that we have been having the day before. Then, my aunt said to me that she shall drive me to my job, and I agreed…
And so, I got into my aunt’s car and I was headed off to my job; Let me tell you straight out-It was so very cold that morning, and I tried to be as careful as I ever could walking without falling on the ice.
However, I was 2 ½ hours early, so I stopped at a Burger King that was located at the base, and I had a post-breakfast treat of pancakes and tiny cinnamon rolls-That fast-food place calls them “Cinna-Minis”-And that kind of treat really warmed me right up, next to that hot chocolate that I have had at Tim Horton’s, which was also located at the base…

And then, it was time for me to go and do what I am supposed to do: Work! And the very first order of business is to vacuum each of the dining areas of the dining facility, which happens to be called (of course) Patterson Dining Facility at the Dover Air Force Base. Next, I would face the products, which was something that I have learned nearly two years ago at my REDI training at Walgreens; And then, I would spray and clean the windows, and then help out with the dishes at the clipper, meaning putting away dishes, trays, etc…
After my lunch break, I would vacuum again, and then more of the same cleaning of the dining facility, because after all, if they want to see a place that is so very clean every day, one has to keep it clean by cleaning it every day, right? Right!

And when it is all over for the day, walked up to the visitor’s center of the base, and that was where my own uncle would be waiting for me to pick me up and to go on home; As we drive home, I began to watch as well as meditate at the same time a beautiful sunset that signals the end of the day, while I shall be waiting to be looking at the sunrise that would signal another day to come…

    Now, the day before I had begun another week at work, I had given my own room a complete makeover, tearing it apart and making it less like a pigsty and more like a real room again; The results of this are almost perfect. Hopefully, I can move around in my rearranged room again without ever bumping into anything…
