He Calms our Fears

He Calms our Fears

Till recently I'd never heard of the product known as Kalms. If you're also out of that loop let me explain what it is. Kalms is a natural remedy tablet that you can take to relieve periods of worry, irritability, stress and strain.  The pandemic has created added stress worldwide. Anxiety was just as prevalent [...]

Power Outage

Power Outage

I'm not a big fan of sudden, unexpected power outages. As the case may be they're almost always sudden and unexpected. Life is the same way. Things have a way of changing on a dime.  Thankfully our power outage occurred on Monday morning after I'd posted on my blog, caught up with a friend, and [...]

A Likely Demise

A Likely Demise

No, I haven’t become Miss Doom and Gloom. I haven't lost hope either. 😀 I found this little "lost episode" in my email. I wrote it waaaaaaay back before the pandemic got started. It does pay off to squirell things away, especially when you're prone to choppy seas. Consider this a lost episode of Star [...]

True Beauty Tips

About three years ago I became very sensitive to hair colouring so I decided I'd ditch the dye. My ears were insanely itchy! I wanted to stop colouring eventually, anyways, so I went for it. I failed the first attempt. As those silver strands started to appear at the top of my head I wasn't [...]

A Happy Camper

Brace yourself for a quirky one. My mentor used to say that I'm a multidimensional person. I think this was his gentle way of saying that I have multiple personality disorder. Okay, nevermind that. I'll be back to myself in no time. The question is: Which self? On with the awkward show. Have you ever [...]

I’ve Got Mail

I’ve Got Mail

I'm so glad that I email myself. I really do and I really am. No, it's not sad. I like to back up all of my writing. After working hard on something I don't want to lose my work. I've heard stories. I remember my mentor being so frustrated that he'd lost what he'd spent [...]

For The Best

For The Best

Nothing went as planned last Saturday. I don't know if it was because I was overtired--not having had enough sleep--but one failed attempt at making the best of this day, after another, sent me back to bed in tears. It feels so stupid. I felt ridiculous.  First I couldn’t connect with Jesus. Then I couldn't [...]

God's Whispers of Truth

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn and a time to dance.

~Ecclesiastes 3:4

We can all agree that laughter is a great medicine for stress relief.

Here are 6 reasons I’ve found why laughter improves one’s health:

1) Laughter relieves stress and tension for up to 45 minutes (and we all know stress is a big health crusher).

2) Laughter boosts the immune system by increasing immune cells and infection fighting antibodies which improves the bodies resistance to disease.

3) Increases endorphins released by your brain which result in feelings of well-being and pleasure.

4) Lowers blood pressure. This coexists with the first point because stress is a big culprit of most health issues. Laughter and a good diet can lower blood pressure.

5) Laughter works the abs because the stomach muscles expand and contract just like doing crunches.

6) Laughter improves cardiac…

What do you think of my weeds!? They have grown much more since I took this photo. It's taken a week to tell you all all about my weekend, but we have almost made it! If messaging Ronda on Sunday wasn't enough to fill me with hope, having a game of Words with Friends as [...]

Forgotten?

Forgotten?

As part of our trip to Alberta we made a stop at the dinosaur museum in the badlands. This museum is located in Drumheller, Alberta. It was definitely worth the visit. Drumheller is such a great name. It was named after Samuel Drumheller who purchased the land from a fellow named Patrick Greentree. Greentree is a [...]
