Robin Hood

What if.. the time of Robin Hood lives on?

In his time, the people were being majorly taxed and oppressed. Hmm, sounds familiar, doesn’t it? So, where is our Robin Hood?

I think, in this day and age, “Hood” comes in different forms. First and foremost, the most important one is Jesus Christ. Then after that come ministries like Answers in Genesis and Amazing Facts who help to spread the truth of Him and His Word.

And, of course, there are lots who are working to do something about the over-taxation and governmental control.

So, while I may not be able to take up arms, break out my bow and arrows, and join Robin Hood and his band of merry men to lead the attack, I can certainly do my part by supporting and being a part of groups that will really make a difference.

Long live Robin Hood!!!!

Marriage - For real or for all?

What if.. gay marriage really does effect those of us who don't agree with it?

I recently came across a question on Facebook asking this. Ever since then, I've had it in the back of my mind. Then it dawned on me. What about marriage itself?

We are taught that marriage is to be a binding commitment that cannot, should not, and is not easily broken -don't believe me on the latter? Try getting divorced.

Now, if marriage is open to allow just anyone to take part in it, what happens to that commitment? Well, it really mustn't be all that important if anyone can have it. Is it any wonder then that the divorce rate in this country has sky rocketed??

So yes, my stand on the question is still very much a YES. We are selling the sanctity of marriage off to whomever wants it, and in turn, it's biting all of us in the rear. I for one want to get married and know it will be forever, not be on uncertain terms with compromise.

What if.. we weren't bound by time?

Every one of us could break away from it and get things done in a matter of minutes? This would open numerous possibilities! Imagine what we could accomplish in one day! We could become a professional at something faster than 10,000 hours. Find the one we were made for and marry and start a family and not have to wait decades to do so.

I would even be able to write for my blogs every single day. Wouldn't that be nice?? :)

Only down side would be... Our life would reach completion that much sooner. We could die in a day. I guess we better be grateful God made this strange thing called time we are subject to then.

Style or Color?

What if.. it's not the color, it's the style?

Yes, I'm talking about clothes! I hear all the time, "black is slimming." Well, okay.. so basically if we want to look thin, we must always wear black? If you're anything like me, just the thought of such a thing is enough to make you twitch. I love color! There is no way I'm giving up my color!

I've noticed though, it seems it's not so much the color (or lack there of) but the style.

One of the styles today are longer shirts. I find this is an instant slimmer! If, in fact, your choice of pants is a more relaxed fit. It smooths out the figure. Even the layered look has it's benefits.

Doesn't matter the color, in my opinion. It's all in the style.

Travel In A Flash!

What if.. inventions like transportation devices existed?

Yes, I'm talking, "Beam me up, Scotty!"

They would make travel effortless and so fast! Why is it no one has invented it yet? What would need to be in order to create it?

Christianity and War

What if.. Christianity isn’t the cause of war?

I hear this a lot. “Religions such as Christianity are the cause of war in the world.”

What I want to know is whether it’s a LACK of Christianity instead that is the true culprit..? Because based on all the evidence, Christianity in particular is not a religion, it’s a reality. So, it makes more sense then that people who deny it would be the actual cause of war.

The battle between Creation and Evolution, for example. They are two "warring" factions in a constant battle against the other. I dare say that the fact Evolution goes completely against the literal Creation of the Bible is the whole root of the fight!

Half Fall

What if.. Eve had been the only one to eat from the Tree in the beginning?

Would we be “half-breeds”? Only partly sinful?

How would it have effected life? Any differently?

More importantly, would Christ still have needed to come?

What if.. having a bias is no better than being closed-minded?

When a person is biased against something or someone, they rely on that bias as their "truth."

So, for example, if someone refuses to hear anything about Christianity or the Bible because they don't want to be told what to do, they are placing their bias above knowledge. Above finding out if there is anything worth knowing outside their bias that could be important or necessary.

So, yes, if you have a bias you can be very closed-minded. But, in the end, all you have is a bias.

What if.. being good just isn’t enough?

According to the Bible, it isn’t... But, here, let me put a different spin on it.

Think of a criminal in prison. Now, our country gives them a second chance by having the possibility to get out on Good Behavior (assuming they have any). But, that criminal could just play “the good game” while he’s there in order to get out. In getting out though, he’s charged to remain that way which it a lot tougher since you’re not locked in a cell without all the temptations.

What’s to keep him good then? For him, it’s the freedom of being out of that cell and remaining so.

For me, it’s to please my Heavenly Father. And much like a prisoner, I want to stay free... of hell. Not only that, but knowing Christ and what He did for you also implores you to do good.

If you’re being good just for the sake of it, what’s to keep you from turning bad when the opportunity comes? Or for you to fake it? You don't have to be a criminal to do that. For that prisoner and me, we have a good reason not to though. Eternity.

It seems a good reason to be good is what prompts a person to be truly good. Without a reason -something to drive you- will you stand strong to the end against the bad? Even with a reason for me, temptations are great. But I have Christ to focus on. Imagine what someone who doesn't is up against. Someone who strives to be good for good’s sake doesn’t have reinforcement.

What if... we could forgive and forget without a second thought?

Out of the two, forgiving is a lot easier than forgetting. But, that’s not such a bad thing as long as we aren’t remembering in a way that will keep us from truly forgiving.

Forgive then put it behind you, yes, but don’t forget if it prevents you from learning and growing from the experience. Especially if you’re the one that needs forgiving.

So, perhaps we need that second thought after all.

What if... learning never had a price tag?

Why should it? We all were given the free ability to learn in the first place, so why should it cost us to do so? We might as well be told, “Your brains, talents, and learning capacities are nonexistent unless you hand over your money.”

I’m so grateful for the advancement of the internet as well as places like the library. Sure, you do have to pay for the internet -a minuscule amount compared to college- but it’s worth it considering all you get in return. And both offer free access to knowledge! Limitless knowledge at every angle!

Now, I understand people have jobs. Trust me, I’m a teacher. I know full well that being paid is important for us. And I also understand that not everything on the internet is completely fact -you have to go through it with a fine toothed comb. Even some books in the library might be more hypothesis than anything else. However, some schools aren’t always as factual about the things they teach either. Often times, they’d rather teach what is popular, rather than what is accurate. And heaven help us if we compare! But, the net and library are FREE and limitless.

So, something doesn’t add up. Perhaps someone can help me out here...

We are told that in order to get a good job we MUST have a piece of paper from graduating college. However, that slip of paper does not tell you how well that person can do the job or what experiences they’ve had (other than spending money to sit in a class room, which still doesn’t tell you anything about how much they learned from doing so).

One kid that is in college to acquire that piece of paper may not have the same expertise someone not in college may. Yet, the one with the paper gets the job, isn’t that how it works? And for what? Faulty and incomplete teaching when you can get the same or even better by researching it on your own?

Most college kids I’ve known are all focused on the paper. They don’t care about the learning, though it’s important for more than just a job search. It’s imperative for life! No, all they care about is making the grade, doesn’t even matter if they really apply themselves. All they want is to pass the easiest way possible and get that paper. From there, their future is made.

Why are we so focused on this piece of paper when learning is not something that is locked up only to be found in a college classroom?

And is it just me, or does this system seem a little warped? So, just because I don’t have a college degree means that I’m incapable of working hard and learning all I can by other means? I hardly think so.

What’s your take on this? As you can see, my mind could use some perspective.


To clarify-- With this post I have in no way said that colleges are inferior because I’m sure there are a lot of great schools out there. Neither have I said that all college kids are not interested in learning and working hard to be what they aspire. I am merely approaching the issue of learning being held at a high price. If any of this, my zeal, has come across offensive, I apologize profusely.

What if... selfishness were just a myth?

Self fish... Perhaps that’s what Peter Pan meant when he called Captain Hook a “Cod Fish?” Hehe Sorry, I found that amusing. Onward and forward!

If people weren’t so concerned with themselves all the time, I would say the world would be just shy of perfect. Wouldn’t you?

What would it be like to mention the word selfish and have everyone look at you like you were crazy? And I don’t mean the feigned ignorance look (also called denial). I’m talking they-have-never-heard-the-word-before look. Ever. Why would that be? Because it wouldn’t exist.

What if.. millions of years hasn’t been attained?

I’d like to see the proof of it. Not guess work or theories, but actual proof. Can anyone show it to me?

What if.. life was easy?

Easy, like a vacation that lasts forever. Ah, do we dare to dream?

Though, if we had everything handed to us on a platter and didn't have to do anything else every again, what would be the point of life? Part of life is going through the struggles. Facing the hard times head on. They make us stronger and teach us to endure. We become better people because of everything life throws at us -good and bad.

Think of something that happened to you a while back that effected who you have become. Even though it may have been hard to endure, looking back on it, would you have wanted it to be different seeing where it has brought you now? For me, needing an income was life changing. But, I've grown from it and it's shaped me into who I've become.

So, perhaps the question should be, do we really want life easy?

I'm reminded of the movie Wall-E and the ship in the sky where everyone sits around all day doing nothing but eating, sleeping, and talking to each other. Look where it got them. They were huge blobs, no offense to any of them. If that is what it would mean to give up life, I'll pass. I'd rather go through all the ups and downs than not feel anything at all.

Easy is not everything. Thank goodness for us, it's also not always available.

What if.. we can truly see God in planting a Garden?

My mom and I have finally gotten on the ball with gardening this year. Our little garden box is already filled with all types of wonderful thing -beets, cucumbers, squash, tomatoes. But, all we’ve done is put them in the soil and water them from time to time. They are grow all on their own.

Makes one wonder. We don’t make them take root and flourish. Sure, we can give them the proper environment to do so (something already provided by God), but it takes God to do the rest. After all, He’s the one that created them.

Gardens remind me of the Parable of the Sower in the four Gospels. But, that’s just the planting stage. What about the growing stage? The parallels to following Christ and just life in general are identical...

Once a seed is planted and has taken root, it still goes through so much. There will be storms that will rage around it and rains that will bombard it (though they like these more often than not). Heavy winds will try to rip it from the comfort of its soil. And often the sun can be so scorching, it will try to suck the life from them. Compost, or garbage, may litter it’s home, but still it keeps growing.

It takes all these things in stride and, as we should too, benefits from them instead of let's them wear it down to nothing.

Beyond “Go to the Ant,” we have the capacity to learn from the plant. Not only of God’s amazing Creation, but about ourselves. When life’s storms and messes surround us, we have the ability, like those plants, to grow from it all.

The question is, will we?

A Second, First Name?

What if.. our names are not our true names?

In the movie Earthsea, the main character is given a new name once he accepts his destiny. Sparrow hawk. It is a secret name -because the name can be used to control him if in the wrong hands- but he is given it nonetheless.

Okay, enough fairy tales now...

In the Old Testament we see something quite similar, just without all the fantasy and magic. Abram, once he made a covenant with God to obey Him in order to receive God’s blessing, became Abraham. Likewise, Sarai became Sarah.

In the New Testament as well, we read of a man named Saul. Saul was a murderer who led the hunt and slaughter against the Lord’s disciples and followers. But, after an encounter with Jesus that turned his life around, he became Paul.

We are all “Saul” in a way. Before we accept Christ, we are sinners just like Saul. But, once we realize who Christ is and invite Him to transform our lives, perhaps we too receive different names than the names given to us at birth?

I wonder what my name became...

Guess I’ll find out in heaven. :)

Read the Bible - Take Your Time!

What if.. reading the Bible should be done slowly?

There is so much to the Bible, it makes sense to go-it-slow in order to get all we can out of it.

You hear about all these ways to read through the Bible in a year online and in churches, yet why does it have to be read so quickly? If the Bible was meant to be read in a year, God wouldn’t have made it so long and chocked full of goodness.

What is the need to rush? Just to say we have “read through the Bible in a year’s time?” What’s the point of that if we don’t have a clue what we have read by the end? Not only that, but you can never get that time back. It’s been and gone. And what will you have to show for it? I assure you, there won’t be a medal or anything else to commend your effort.

So, take your time. A chapter a day; several verses here and there; when a major issue comes up, see what it has to say on it.. Just make sure you are learning something from it and that learning is a constant endeavor.

There is a lot of really amazing stuff in the Bible. Find it, research, and know it inside and out, and you won’t ever regret the time spent doing so.

Death by Love

What if.. we could die without love?

We kill for love. We strive for love. We thrive on love. So, doesn’t it make sense that we could die without it?

At least, in our minds, it would seem so.

“We can’t live without love,” we tell ourselves. And it’s true. There’s something inside us that cries out for it and will do almost anything to get it. Makes sense since we were created by a God who loves us more than we can even imagine.

But, we’ve fallen away from that love. It’s become tainted and warped -fake. We’ve lost sight of the true meaning and purpose of love. So much so that we look for the imitation kind to fill that ache within us just so we can get ourselves from point A to point B. So that we can glimpse or feel that love for just a moment.

Yet, it doesn’t last. And we keep looking for it over and over again.

When it disappears or crumbles, we are back to where we started. Loveless.

But, okay, I’m getting off topic a bit. Love is something we all simply MUST have, right? But, can we die without it? Is it possible to live without the love we find on this earth? That artificial love?

Yes. The answer is Jesus. Never has there been a more perfect love than the love shown through Jesus Christ. Without His love, we really do die. Every day.

Don’t know Him? You can today. Anyone can. His love is always open to you.

What if.. America was no longer a free country?

Honestly, it doesn’t seem that way anymore. I just overheard on the news that they are beginning to monitor emails as well as text messages now!

If they can so easily invade our privacy, who’s to say it won’t get worse? Where will it end??

No. The fact is that we are losing our freedom. But thanks be to God, we still have freedom in Him.

Cause and Effect

What if.. what we do effects what happens to us and those around us?

Two words for you... It does.

Free will means we get to make a choice. And there is always more than one choice. There will be a good choice, and there will be a bad choice; a right choice and a wrong choice. Whatever choice you choose will effect you in some way. Good will effect you in a good way, and bad will effect you in a bad way. That's not unreasonable to say, is it?

So, if someone chooses to rob a bank and kills someone, that bad choice will effect them badly. The same can be said for the person that chooses to give to others even when he has nothing to give. It will all effect our lives in some way. Be it on this earth or in eternity.

Also, think about this... Can anyone show me someone that has eaten and lived a healthy life and still received cancer? By eating, I mean that they eat their fruits and vegetables just as much as their meats if not more so (I've read that fruits and vegetables keep the ph balance of the body normal. If it's not balanced, cancer is free to grow). They stay away from sugars, processed foods, and all else that is not good for their bodies (basically, all junk food). They also exercise... Well, you get the idea. They have taken GOOD care of themselves. The best, if I may go so far as to say.

Can anyone show me someone they have known that has still been sick under these circumstances?

I know someone that hasn't. My own grandmother. She is a picture of health and follows the list I gave above. All of my family knows she will out live us all unless hit by a bus or something. And she's never had cancer or any other major disease. She barely even gets sick with a cold! She's just that healthy and it's paying off! She'll no doubt see her great grand childrens children.

I once heard it said, "The little things don't matter."

Now, to a degree I understand the context by which it was said. Knowing Christ is by far the most important choice we can ever make. But, that doesn't mean that other choices don't matter at all. Why? Because God made a point to talk about the little things, too. What we eat, how we live, what comes out of our mouths, what we do and do not do, etc.

So, if God thought something like eating pork was important enough to mention along with Christ, that means it is important and should be given the proper attention. Like, did you know that when you eat pork, you are not only putting yourself at risk of a deadly worm, but you are also eating death itself? Pigs are the garbage cans of the earth. All the junk they eat remains in their bodies and then transfers to yours once you ingest it. Research the pig and you'll see (specifically, find out what comes out when you squeeze the leg of a pig). So, God had a very good reason to say stay away from it -He wants us to live! John 10:10, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

And, concerning the pig, that has never changed though some Christian's would argue it has. God may have said it in the Old Testament, but that has not changed even in the New. One reason being because the pig has not changed, nor has our physical make up. (See upcoming post on my Once Upon A Time... blog to read more in-depth on this topic -

So, that means for every decision we have to make, we need to take time thinking it over. Weigh all our options and examining the outcome for each one, and not just concerning ourselves! That is the only way we can make the best and wisest decision.

I'm not saying not to listen to other people. No, not at all! Where can you hear about other sides if not from other people? But, in the end, YOU make the decision after careful examination of both sides/all options.

For your sake as well as the people around you, I hope you choose the good decisions above the bad.



Friday, March 13, 2009


What if.. everyone in the world thought more of others than themselves?

Would there be such a thing as war? Would we even know what “war” meant? Would weapons be used for anything other than gathering food? What would and would not be?

I think everything would be different if we would stop focusing on ourselves.

Thieves wouldn’t steal because they would have those they were taking from in mind. Murderers wouldn’t kill because they would think of all the people that would be hurt by taking a life. And greedy people would make sure everyone around the world had plenty... These people would all no longer exist. Period.

This country has been blessed so greatly with freedom and everything we need provided for us. But, it’s going to our heads and destroying us in the process.

Stop and think... Not about where you will be next, or what you will eat and drink for lunch. But about those that have no place to go. Those that have nothing to eat or drink and who don’t have any of the luxuries we do. Then do something about it. They need us; we need each other. If not us, then who?

Doing so will no doubt save us, this country, and even the world in the process. But we have to choose to stop the selfishness. Will we?

Get Involved!

What are your What If’s? Do you have ones you’d love to share? Well, you can! Here’s what you do...

Email me at and include the following:

1) Your What If questions and their answers,
2) Your name (whatever you’re comfortable with) and a link to your blog,
3) Also, tell me if I have permission to make comments on your questions as well. I will consider no response as an okay.

If you just have questions that you’d like me to try and answer, that’s okay too. Still include your name and blog link and tell me if you’d like them to be made known when posting on the question.

From there, just keep your eyes open for it to be posted!

I make posts every Monday and Friday mornings, and I’ll post four viewer What If’s a month.

No questions are too crazy -all are important, no matter how big or small... Questions can be as imaginative or real, serious or silly as you want. Feel free to be as creative or passionate as you like. Just make sure it begins “What If..”

Get your questions in now for this month! I look forward to seeing what everyone else thinks of!

As always, thanks for being a part of my What If blog. :)

True Love

What if.. true love could speak to us?

What would it say?

Jesus’ love spoke in his actions. He died for the world because he loved us so much. That is the kind of love we should mimic. It’s true with a capital T.

Would true love ever keep quiet? NEVER. True love will always make itself know, in action and word together. Otherwise, how do you know it’s true love?

True love, then, can and does speak to us. The real question is, are we listening? Are we looking for it?

What if... genius isn’t so much an excess of smarts as it is a lack of it?

Einstein was smart, yes, but perhaps it was because everyone else chose to be stupid. He was only considered as such because no one else took the time or wanted to know..?

Last I checked, being smart (even genius) is a choice; we have to want to learn and know. We all have that choice before us and learning is not something that is hard to acquire. So, we all make the decision to be smart or stupid, learned or not, every day.

I've heard so many kids talk about how pointless and boring or even "uncool" school is. In fact, I'm sure a lot of kids today don't care about anything school related. But that decision is made without thinking about why school is there in the first place -to better yourself so you can do great things.

But, without knowledge, you might as well be without air. The only thing uncool about it is how much of a loser you'll be if you don't apply yourself now and dedicate yourself to learning all you can.

After all, who’s to say you can’t be the next Einstein, Plato, Mozart, or Michaelangelo? You certainly have nothing to lose in trying. In fact, if you think about it, you have everything to lose if you don’t. And that doesn’t take genius to figure out.

Take time and make an effort to learn anything and everything in all things. All around, it's just the smartest thing to do.

WDYT? (What Do You Think?)

What if... listening to music were a crime?

We hear all the time about how pirating is one of many crimes concerning music. But, what about the actual music itself being illegal? What if all music had been banned from ever being heard again?

Shocking, and rather far out there, I know.. But, what if?

Well, that would be one crime I would gladly commit. What about you?

What if.. people had two throats?

Would that mean thicker necks? And would soar throats be twice as bad?

Even further, what if we could use those throats separately? Like controlling your hands or feet. Might make for a killer vocalist -able to sing melody and harmony at the same time.

I wonder why we only have one...

The Fruit

What if.. only Eve had eaten from the tree and not Adam?

I wonder sometimes... Would we only be part sinful? Some sort of mutant? And what would God have done? Would Christ have still needed to come?

What do you think?

This is just one of the many questions I’ll have to ask God when I see Him in heaven.. Can’t wait! There are so many! :)

What if... aliens really do exist?

Well, so what? If they do, I doubt they would come flying in in flat, round disks and look like they poured growth enhancers on their heads as portrayed in the movies. And especially that they would come to take over or destroy us. That’s just too strange.

Plus, what could they possibly want here on earth? If they use such advanced technology that they can get here in the first place, why would they want to? Look around. There is not much here I think they’d like. There’s not much here I like, and it’s gradually getting worse no thanks to sin and bad choices on our parts.

If there are other beings out there, what does it matter? Personally, I think people need to get their heads back on this planet and focus on it’s problems before we can even consider welcoming anyone else from whatever distant galaxy.

What if... racism were something more?

It is, I dare say, a difference between right and wrong above all; a battle between not who’s skin color is more superior or how different we look compared to another, but between what is good and what is evil. Allow me to explain...

When someone purposes to feel prejudice toward someone else, they are choosing to do away with what is right and good -to love others, no matter what. After all, looks are not what is important anyway. The heart is. Wouldn’t you agree?

Seeing as people can’t see into the heart as soon as they meet someone and it takes time to get to know someone well, racists then don’t care about logic and reason either. They see someone on the street who’s skin is different than their own and immediately decide against them because of it. Or they know of one person’s bad actions but impress that one person’s actions on everyone categorized with them (like Mexicans or Asians, Black or White people).

So, a racist not only chooses wrong over right, but also chooses ignorance over logic. In the end, it only makes them wrong and ignorant.

What’s worse is that they deceive themselves into thinking that what I just said doesn’t apply to them...

What if... no one ever assumed?

Too much to hope for, do you think..?

Assumptions can ruin friendships and lives and not just to those around you. It can also harm yourself. If I could engrave this in every mind, I would... NEVER ASSUME! Have good, solid proof before you draw any conclusions whatsoever.

Now, if we could read minds and hearts with people and, in essence, be God, this might be a different story (though, then it wouldn’t be called assuming). But, since we can’t and never will be, it’s not worth pretending.

What if... money was nonexistent?

In this are a million other questions. What if, money weren’t such a major part of life? What if we weren’t pressured to make it? But, what is my point?

I think, without it, this would not only show people what is really important in life, but help them to do what they really want to and not have to spend so much time in a job to make what they need to pay bills.

I understand that working is important. Don’t get me wrong! I know first hand that it makes you responsible among other things. And God commands us to work. But, work for what? God gave the land to Adam and Eve to tend to. There was no money involved.

And the Bible is so true when it says, “Money is the root of all evil.” People steal and rob for money, no doubt because of all the pressure there is to have it. People are killed because of money. People rely more on money than they do God. It harbors greed and envy and covetousness. And the list can go on and on!

I’m not so sure that money is worth having when you compare. Seems it does more harm then good. Imagine that... something so small causing and effecting so much.

So, what would it be like if money was no more? Would it be something to hope for? Or not?

La La Land

What if... reading could be food, water, shelter, money for bills, and any other necessity?

I would no doubt be in heaven. :)

What if... more mothers stayed home to raise their children?

As a nanny, I wonder about this often. There is only so much that outside influence can do for kids. They crave their parents attention. Believe me, I know. Yet, all too often I see families who have both parents that work and it’s, well.. heart breaking.

Personally, if you want to have a family and kids, plan on it. Don’t just fall into it in the middle of your school year so that either you drop out to raise them or keep going and they suffer. There is no rush to be someone and have a career (unless there is a dire need to make money.. but again, plan kids!). But, you should choose when you want to have a career and when you want to have kids (if the choice is available) because, from what I’ve seen, the two just don’t mesh well.

Above all, kids need their parents, especially their moms when they’re younger. And, believe it or not, you need them as well. I wish more mom’s would relish the younger years they will never get back with their children and end up regretting.

An Ounce of Brain...

What if... we all used more than 12% of our brains?

Wow, wouldn’t that be nice.

DOC UPDATE- So far it’s been a little over a week, but already the abnormal racing of my heart has stopped. I’ve been checking myself daily for Vitamin B Complex and eating more of the foods mentioned, and well, what more is there to say? The proof is in the pudding. :)

I found out that Vitamin B is used up more quickly when we are stressed out. If you are stressed with work, family or anything else, make sure you are replenishing your Vitamin B. Otherwise, expect your body to tell you.

Just breathe.. God'll do the rest.

Just Grow Up

What if... we didn’t have to grow up?

There are times I envy Peter Pan in his ability to avoid growing up. When you’re young, there are no bills to pay, no pain and hurt to experience (in most cases) but even when you do, you are almost clueless to it, and not a care in the world are present. It’s like you see the world as this magical realm in which you are now a part of. Your own fiction story in the making. And you can do anything (well, anything your parents will let you.. but that’s not such a big downside since you’re taken care of twenty-four seven.).

But, on the other hand, growing up is what sets us apart from any other living thing on earth. Not only that, but it can also have it’s major upsides. Learning, for one. Finding the one you are to be with forever, for another. Doing and becoming someone great. Staying up late and eating a whole pint of ice cream. Hehe ; ) I’m sure the list could go on.

So, while on one hand I would like to be young again to get away from all the stresses of life, on the other, I wouldn’t trade the world for all I’ve learned, all I’m doing, and who I’ve become.

What do you think? Would you want to go back to when you were younger? Why? Why not?

What if.. Doctors aren’t the answer? Part One.

I just read an article in a newsletter we receive in the mail called Health Alert. The article was about a man named John who had unusual heart rhythm -a slight arrhythmia. He was in good shape aside from the occasional race of his heart.

So, he went to the doctors who proceeded to think it was this, then it was that, or maybe this or that... All the while treating him for things that often times he didn’t even have symptoms for or of which testing came back normal! He was placed on antibiotics, given more and more drugs, an angiogram, and even put through surgery. But, he got worse. After the angiogram, he had to spend 3 days in the hospital with a vein problem. And one of the drugs was so toxic that he was back in the hospital for 10 days. During which, he began to bleed internally. (And that was only to give you an idea of what he went through!)

But his heart still raced.

When the doctors finally decided the real solution was heart bypass surgery, the man had had enough.

The article says that in 2 years, he had seen 2 general practitioners, 6 cardiologists, 2 internists, 2 endocrinologists, 1 gastroenterologist, 1 hematologist, 3 surgeons, 3 radiologists, and countless nurses and technicians. He had been to four renowned hospitals and two world-famous cardiac centers.

So, what was the problem? A vitamin B complex deficiency. Seriously, that’s all it was. After just three months, the man was cured of the irregular heartbeat.

What’s the point of this post? Well, I’ll tell you. It’s because I have this same irregular heartbeat. I was planning on having a Physical today, but found this article and canceled it. I’m going to try it out before I spend money I don’t have in order to go to a Doctor.

This is Part One of this post because I intend to keep you posted on how I’m doing and if this works. This marks the day I start.

Here is what I’ll be doing... I’ll be testing myself by using the electrical currents running through my body to see if I need any of the following B’s --B1, B2, B6, B12, niacin, folic acid, biotin, and pantothenic acid. I will also be incorporating more of these foods into my diet:

* whole grains, such as wheat and oats
* fish
* poultry and meats
* eggs
* dairy products, like milk and yogurt
* leafy green vegetables
* beans and peas

So, this is my experiment for all to see. Will it work? I know it will. How do I know? Not only have I been craving fish and haven’t been eating a lot of dairy products -to be truthful, very little if any at all- but also, my God is good. And it was no coincidence my mom found this article for me. But, I know.. It remains to be seen. I’ll give you an update in a month’s time on how I’m doing.

What if... friends really aren’t as important as we may think?

Let me clear up right away that I did not just say friends are not important at all. I merely eluded that they aren’t AS important. I am fully aware that friends, if the right kind, can be extremely beneficial as well as a blessing to our lives.

However, on the flip side, they can be detrimental as well. Some can hurt us, others can betray us. They tend to be a distraction (though distractions, at times, are necessary). And even still, they can turn us into people we don’t want to become should we let them.

Every time you make a friend, you take a risk. Sometimes the risk is well worth it... Other times it’s not. Make sure you’re aware and careful who your friends are.

Body Talk

What if... our bodies are trying to tell us something?

Often times, they are, and they’re rather good at it too. They let us know when we are in pain, as in when we’ve broken or bruised something. They also let us know when we are lacking. Be it with hunger or thirst or even something more specific (ie. cravings). But, lets go even deeper than that...

Do you ever get those little white smudges under your finger nails? That’s your body telling you you have a zinc deficiency. Either that, or you injured it. How can you tell? Have you had any painful accidents where that finger nail was in the middle of it?

Or what about those grooves in the nail? Some call it a spooning of the nail. It is due to a lack of iron.

And these are just minor ways in which our body lets us know when something is up! What is your body telling you? Are you listening?

What if... innocence in children grew extinct?

Let’s just say, I don’t think there would be much of a need or an issue with abortion any longer.

A thought from the holidays

What if... we didn't have family?

Sounds appalling, I know. But, the truth is, there are people that don't for one reason or another. If you know of someone, call or write them today to let them know you're thinking of them. Could mean the world to them. :)


What if, what??

Simple... What if, anything.

This is just a random blog to raise questions on things. Life is full of questions -it's natural to have questions. It's also natural to ask them. So, lets ask.

We might not always get an answer but sometimes, in asking, we discover their importance, or lack there of.
