Emalou King,RN,BSN,Phn~Author ** Mothers of Survivors Unite**: Retake:

Emalou King,RN,BSN,Phn~Author ** Mothers of Survivors Unite**: Retake:: Happy New Year 2014 I make these on New Years Eve in my kitchen. It's fun. It's a good way to begin the year and making a Mary B...



Three years ago, my Mary Boxes were taken by Katie of America Needs Fatima to Fatima on October 13th, the Feast Day of Our Lady and placed at the site where she appeared. There were nine boxes. Well now it is 2017 and I have filled nine more boxes of prayers. I called the office of America Needs Fatima in Kansas to ask permission to send these. Katie was so honored to hand deliver the boxes that she said yes, again. This year is the 100th Anniversary of Our Lady appearing at Fatima to the three children in 1917 in Portugal. Just sharing such joy from my heart to validate the wonderful power of prayer.



Dearest Blessed Mother, thank you. Thank you. Thank you.❤

Season Change and Changes:

The colors were so beautiful today.
Rain and light wind and the sun.
The warmth of friendships over coffee.
Walking, talking and laughing together.
Soon there will be changes in our life. 
Many will be unhappy. May the grace of 
God comfort us in our fight for the common good. Peace.

The center:

God is meant to be the center of our consciencenous...where do you find him? 
Yesterday,  I noticed the cross. It seemed to pop up to my mind as I was driving by...that always feels like a personal greeting from God! ❤️ it when that happens. I am looking for HIm, are you?

"Meet me in St. Louis!"🎢

My daughter called me to ask what I was doing for the week of June 20-26? I said, "nothing!" She invited me to meet her in
St.Louis! This was a great idea. We attended a Collequium of Church Sacred 
Music. We roomed together and spent valuable time singing and listening and learning all while praising our great God.
An unforgettable experience. I sang tenor  with these men and was honored to be there.

Anniversaries:

I love looking at old pictures thru my own older eyes! I lacked an appreciation of youth and beauty that becomes clear now in 2016.πŸ™„
My mom and dad, No doubt at the Elks Club where they had a dinner/dance date every Saturday night! 
My mother lived to dance with my dad. She was crazy over him ...like a new bride, until the day she died and even after he was deceased.
I love them and miss them...still crazy for my own parents after all these years!🎢

Routines:

I think it's good to have a routine...
I do have a new one and that is plugging in these lovely flowers that create a warm atmosphere in the room and a soft light in the evenings. This was a gift time from the Friends of the Center. The royalties  from my book sales are given to them and they are grateful. I am too!

Dana Andrews:

Dana Andrews was a guest speaker at a conference I attended in Williston, ND years ago. It was my pleasure to meet him. Just sharing a positive memory!

Meditation:

Did you take a break today?
Sit quietly and breathe deeply?
Clear your mind of "stuff"?
Talk to God with praise?  And...
Did I remember "thanksgiving?"
 
Well, the day isn't over and it can be done anytime and any place!
You're still in luck!

Count your blessings.

Where is God:

Sometimes I need a reminder of God's presence and today these big stone feet in the front seat of my car brought me that comfort!  I know God is everywhere and that HE loves me and my family. 
  
Footsteps in the sand...
So glad for the times HE has carried me!

Motherhood and Loss:

Mothers bear a deep sorrow when something happens to one of their children. I am fascinated by so many different ways that God works in our lives. If you are not a Christian then what I say won't matter to you. I am so blessed first to be a Catholic and second to live in the United States of America and have a church family.

Celeste always wore this necklace and you will see it around her neck in pictures and in the videos she posted. On the day she was killed in a single vehicle accident on the way home from school, on Friday  afternoon...she wasn't wearing it. So, where was it?? The hunt began as stories of love emerged about Celeste. It was finally found and given to her mother. 
The family and friend's grief remains palpable as the flowers wilt on the many beautiful bouquets of fresh flowers. 

The 20 minute rule has always been most helpful to me...as someone who has lost many loved ones. Beyond that period of time you take your energy to normalize your day and again, if you must repeat your 20 minutes , it's okay. Just do not become so consumed you are unable to function. This is also meant for dads and brothers and uncles and grandparents too. 

When I look at mamas hand here. I know that Celeste is now being held in the hand of God! She remains in our prayers. She will be remembered in daily Masses and in her memory a young man will become a seminarian. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace, amen. I wish sweet Celeste knew how much she was loved. πŸ’”

Help let the children know they are precious and loved.

Mourning:

A death in the family;
For all those who have been praying for us, thank you. 
Celeste was a beautiful child of God, taken back by the Author of our life, our glorious Creator, and Lover of our souls. Now she is among the Communion of Saints. Rest in peace, sweet one.
From your Great Auntie!

Planned Parenthood:

It is a privilege to carry a child  in utero...
A child is a gift from God
All of us are special
God knows every hair on our head
He formed us . He is our Creator.

  It is horrific to see the videos of tiny arms, legs and parts
Being sorted out on a tray to be salvaged 
And sold 
Even worse is the denial of this being a heinous crime!
There is more concern of a lion being
Shot  than The murder of babies and more.

I don't want my tax dollars to pay for abortions.
I do not believe in taking life because
I believe in respect for life at all ages and stages.

This is my faith. 
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth,
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord who was 
Conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried...

 St.Girard, patron Saint of mothers,
Pray for us
Mothers protect your children

Squawking:



We have an awesome God and "awesome" should be reserved only for Him! He made heaven and earth and the beautiful things in it. Everything God does for us, He does for the love of us.

This bird is beautiful, noisy, and attracting all sorts of attention in Moss Landing this morning.

He waits for his master to come back and he squawks to let everyone know it!

We were given voices for a reason. Do you use it? Do you? I am squawking about childhood sexual abuse! I am plain disgusted. I want to live in a place where it no longer exists. Would you help me by talking about prevention and reporting with your children? It's your new job!

Thank you from the child of a senseless crime. You changed their world.
