That’s the spirit Dear Sister! “It is a time to express gratitude for the gift of being alive.” I quote you here because that is something I’ve been saying often times in my writings because anyone with their wits about them should fathom the basic reality that being alive is a miraculous GIFT that obviously transcends our so limited comprehension of absolute total reality for what it actually is and why we are part of it; which I boldly venture to say is all part of the plan; not our plan by any stretch of the imagination, though watching people scurry about around the planet one would think these beings have some kind of leg up on what their lives are going to add up to in the end result when the final curtain falls!
So, this amazing GIFT while that should be apparent is simultaneously a MYSTERY that some crave to find the ultimate answer to and strive to accomplish that insurmountable task by any mere human standards; there has been evidence that is reassuring all along and especially since prophecy began to be offered to we humans followed by those prophecies being fulfilled culminated with the most profound portion of them all the Birth, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ! And I can happily say with assurance and total; conviction that there is nothing in this entire world or universe that gives me any other reason to be alive than this one great Truth that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be and that is all that matters to me! Following all of His teachings and getting to know Him better each day, while totally trusting Him to save me from all doubt and from death itself; is exactly what it’s all about!
Your suggesting is well taken; I for one eat loads of blueberries and actually all of these luscious healthy ingredients in your recipe practically every day; only not in this form or shape! But now you have inspired me to do just that and I will give it a go; this gets a green light from me; especially for Saint Valentine’s Day! I’m with you on this to me better approach that it’s not just about the favored commercialized, even pop culture conceptualization that most people readily accept; but is rather something much more valid and intrinsic that flows truly from the heart which is what Jesus seeks to know each of us by, what is truly in our hearts because that is our true identity! You have also reminded me of another food for the heart that I must consume daily and more than I already do, as I can never have enough of it while in this short life! I must reach out to the only one who can provide it through consuming His word and merciful eternal love! Our Savior Jesus! Amen.
Well let me put it this way; I’m so blessed to exist! Otherwise I’d be nothing. And I know I didn’t create me or any of this that exists nor did any other humans. So if I’m devoted to anything it absolutely has to be with WHO IT IS that made sure I could live and be. The big question most people debate is what or who is the “IT” that made this all possible and being a sane very rational coherent as well analytical man, I have scoured many books or had debates, even many with myself extrapolating what intrinsic meaning and conclusion if any I can come to or arrive at. I know there is a vast intelligence absolutely entwined in all of this and its absolute intrinsic value is GOD the CREATOR and ALL KNOWING. Now would God do this with a plan in mind? Of course, look around the universe do you see it as some joke or foolishness? Absurd and ridiculous to even imagine something All Knowing would behave that way when we the mere pipsqueaks with such frailty and such limited cognitive faculties are capable of doing so many extraordinary things like build skyscrapers or a rocket that can go into space. But these are infantile and practically useless feats when stacked up against the ALL KNOWING and TOTALLY CAPABLE!
So guess what I place my life in the care and custody of; right, that one innate Presence within me of knowing that this is the only real HOPE I have of making it beyond a hole in the ground when this short lived flesh body is totally broken. This God, I do know and have experienced His presence, and I do devote my life to Him! And He didn’t leave us empty handed in this quest as He revealed Himself over millennia to various prophets who eventually gave us the Bible, and it matches all of my hopes along with any expectations of what is going on; and how I will go on!
A mind so advanced and sure about this “Being” actually existing had some excellent thoughts on this which I share here.
I want to leave something I find very insightful by a man we all know was a remarkably brilliant person who I think even though his head was immersed in the world of science and theories he had a keen insight into God’s presence and reality like few people can achieve with our limiting cognitive faculties.; and his respect and love of God was present and genuine; therefore we can say God will judge accordingly, I know for myself Einstein was a good and respectful soul in this world, so I do wish him well. What follows I was writing about back at this mentioned date.

I close by repeating this quote I’ve often referred to even just last week!
“The most beautiful and most profound experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is the sower of all true science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. To know that what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their primitive forms – this knowledge, this feeling is at the centre of true religiousness.”
-Albert Einstein – “The Merging of Spirit and Science”
Thank you and Happy Valentine’s Day!
God bless you in Jesus’ holy name! Amen.
Lord Jesus Let my heart never rest until it finds You, who are its center, its love, and its happiness. By the wound in Your heart pardon the sins that I have committed whether out of malice or out of evil desires. Place my weak heart in Your own divine Heart, continually under Your protection and guidance, so that I may persevere in doing good and in fleeing evil until my last breath. Amen. – St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
From the depth of my nothingness, I prostrate myself before Thee, O Most Sacred, Divine and Adorable Heart of Jesus, to pay Thee all the homage of love, praise and adoration in my power. Amen.
– St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Let us spread some love in honor of Valentine’s Day 😉 I think a day to embody love is a tOATally awesome reminder to carry affection towards each and every day of our lives. We can express love for so many components of our daily endeavors. One of the activities I hold close to my heart is baking/cooking. When I engage in this activity, my soul feels light regardless of what is going on in my life. Valentine’s Day is not just for romantic love. It is for the things that warm our hearts. It is the match that sparks a fire within our souls. It is a time to express gratitude for the gift of being alive. I encourage you to spend Valentine’s Day focusing on the things in your life that soften your heart. Here is a recipe for you in case baking is an experience that puts…
