God’s Open Door by Carl L. Frye

                 God’s Open door

Written & original illustration by Carl L. Frye

Along the fence row covered with small pint sized trees

above the wire the wind blows creating a breeze

within the shadows of the branches a corridor

through the pathway of light is God’s open door

when I look at it from a mile or more away

I see it getting closer day by day

the leaves are green,and the underbrush is brown

the wind blows above it without a sound

oh look I see a light brighter than before.

It is an angel standing by God’s open door.!

Paulette Motzko Shared “Daily Readings From The Power of I Am” by Joel Osteen”, The Power & Freedom with Google Play Books 

I absolutely love Google Play books and I quite a vast library of books that would have cost me a venerable fortune if I would have bought off a bookstore shelf.

Also, another benefit of the Google Play Books technology is that you can have the book read to you while you’re doing something else, you can take notes while you’re reading it and most of the better-known books have the feature where you can turn on the feature that says “Read Aloud.” The beauty of it is you can bookmark outline any part of the book you want. You can control the size of the font, and for me I have it bumped up to the max because I wear Progressive bifocals.

I think my vision now is as bad as what a my ex-husband- the rocket scientist was- when I married him. It comes from just reading and age and a whole variety of things, close-up work, computer work, of which I’ve done my share of.

I bought The Writer’s  Market 2017  and also The Photographer’s Market 2017 ebook Editions for the first time and it’s awesome because the books are. I can have access to any of the things on either those two massive big, very informative trade journals anywhere I go and they don’t weigh anything and I don’t have to carry them in a huge bag like I used to so all these things make it pretty wonderful.

I do love a book with a cover though, and I will never stop buying them or advocating them they also will never go out of print as long as writers like me keep riding and photographers like me keep shooting photographs that immortalize extraordinary moments captured for all time.

 There are some books that if filled with really extraordinary pictures that I want in book form. 

You just have to decide what works for you and if it’s largely text, which this particular book is, it doesn’t really matter if you get it the “book with cover” book or this version.

This book that the link goes to is fantastic for any Christian person, along with the first book that I read from Joel Osteen that I discovered on Pinterest.

 That book is called “I Declare” by Joel Osteen and I believe it’s been printed and every country in the world. 

Another awesome aspect of Google Play books is you can get a free sample of any book in the world. Did you know that?

 Most people don’t know that. 

 I make it my point to know stuff like that. So you can get a free sample today for free of this book and any other one you want for that matter if you don’t like it you can live in the contents you can take a look at it then you don’t need to buy it but you’ve got some of it. Night recommended you’ll be better off having read the few pages that they give you for free than you were before.

 I would say that Joel Osteen is probably the most inspiring writer of our time along with Max Lucado, Louise Hay, and Joan Borysenko.

I went to one of us performances with his wife when he was here in Las Vegas few months back.

If I was to say what books would I recommend that are life-changing and will begin  changing your life overnight by changing the way you view about your life, your family, God, and higher power and your role in this world.

 I would recommend through Google Play Books. 

(I can’t stand Kindle because of all of the ads that come up constantly on it.)

There are no ads -ever any ads -on Google Play Books. It is a book- and thank God the Google people have kept it that way. They’re  not trying to sell you anything on Google Play Books; it is a literary work in a very savvy, lightweight , incredible technological medium.

When my first book is printed, when it’s printed into an ebook, after getting my ISBN number and my copyright excetera -I would want it to be on Google Play Books, because I now know how crappy the Kindle system is. It‘s awesome if you like ads but I don‘t and I don‘t want people paying for my book and getting a bunch of crappy ads.

 Also every book in the public domain is available free of charge on Google Play books.

 So, if your kids have to do a book report on the Twelfth Night by Shakespeare, for God’s sake don’t by Cliff Notes because it’s all available on Google Play books for free! 

That was done by Google several years ago and it was groundbreaking because the Google people wanted to see that information, education, and classic works like public domain books were made available to all people. They registered those books as historical documents. 

And I say Thank You to Google for being extraordinary and for thinking in those ways, because it took some years to get all of the legal permissions to make that possible. Two large extended made education and books free, or at least cheaper, making them more accessible to everyone no matter where they lived in the world.

 It’s really extraordinary because I was looking for Helen Keller’s book entitled “Optimism” which is what lead me to Google Play Books.

 I went to I don’t know how many bookstores and nobody carried it and couldn’t order it. 

I went to 12 libraries and all the copies were checked out! ThenI found it on Google Play Books in an almost miraculous way. 

I will never forget opening it for the first time and seeing a literal picture of the book, that someone scanned, and it opened up, unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. 

Helen Keller I’S STILL INSPIRING THROUGH HER WORDS AND WAS ONE of the GREAT GENIUSES of our time. 

 WHEN YOU read something by HELEN KELLER Keller YOU ARE FOREVER ENLIGHTENED. It is so ironic that someone who could not see or hear can Enlighten and inspire all of the seeing or not saying world.

She was and will always be my heroine and who first inspired me as a recently diasnosed 9 year old girl with epilepsy. I got her book about her life on a book drive that Simmons School in Garden Grove had  and I knew that if she could do what she did  with what she was dealt with I could do anything. That combined with my mother’s extraordinary wisdom,  cheerleading,  and being the kind of person that she was , my Ann Sullivan, if you will  helped me deal with what I  had to do with  until Tegretol at age 14 was invented and then Vimpat by UCB many years later.

Who better to write about optimism than Helen Keller right?  She was the Paragon of optimism in my book.

When I read “Optimism” on Google Play Books, I was astounded by her extraordinary knowledge about philosophy and logic, and her extraordinary descriptions sounded as though she seen or heard.

(If any of you reading this don’t know who Helen Keller was she was blind and deaf and her world opened when her teacher Anne Sullivan came into her world from Gallaudet University. Miss Anne Sullivan explained to her in a literal self-discovery process, that every thing in her world had a meaning. W-A-T-E-R fingerspelled in her hand was the word that became the turning point for everything that would follow in the many books that would be in print by her. It is a great example of every action has a chain reaction in life.

 Check out Google Play Books and your world will open like a flower.

BLESS THE BEAUTIFUL UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! Happy Flag Day 2017!

 Here’s a note about the sparking American flag I used in the photo here….

It is one of my grandmother’s cherished pins she used to wear. She was my mother’s mother and singlehandedly raised her children on her own due to my grandfather James Hubert Hart dying of spinal meningitis when my mother was four years old.

Mom said the day that she finally realized that she was alive was the day she overheard someone talking about who is getting all the kids, and what houses they were all going to because Grandma couldn’t afford to take care of them all herself.

Grandma wasn’t afraid to take a man’s job in a time when it was was very unpopular for a woman to rivet airplanes -but she did. 

There wasn’t anything that could stop my grandmother Ruby Hart.

 She was proud to be an American citizen and so appreciative of everything that you ever did for her— just like my mother.

That’s why when she had Alzheimer’s disease-like my mother had, untiL she touched the face of God nearly a year ago  I didn’t think anything of helping taking care of her.

 I bought her big print Readers Digest books to encourage her to talk and keep her mind active…and they did.

 She read one of them every day … so I bought more for her and she smiled as she read each story.

I found them at local libraries and we would talk about the stories in each story, which would inspire her to tell me about her life recalling memories of when she was younger.

I don’t have a digital image of Grandma-yet’ but I’ll create one for this story I didn’t know I was going to write, until writing the first sentence! 

I know we have our trouble in America, but when you compare us to other countries- it’s pretty damn nice country anyway you look at it. We have precious  freedoms another country can match.

I didn’t say God Bless America because I wanted everyone no matter who they were to be able to relate to the image and the meaning behind image.

 I’m Christian so I’ll always say God Bless America, but as an empowered lady I would love to see all of us all over the world worry less about religion & culture and focus more about just treating each other kindly and know everyone has a right to believe what they feel strongly about.

As long as they are not hurting you or anyone then let him believe it if they find solace and peace through it.

Uniting as living, breathing people who have the power to good-is my dream for not only America but for the world.

Speak to your children as if they are the wisest, kindest, most beautiful and magical humans on Earth, for what they believe is what they will become. Brooke Hampton

That is exactly what my mother said to me all my life. She was my best cheerleader, my confidante, my motivator the sunshine and the sky on a beautiful summer stay and the brightest star that glimmers at night. I think her everyday for all of what she gave me: love, inspiration, her time, sharing ideas, sharing secrets that only the two of us knew because she trusted me implicitly.

This photo was a memory Facebook shared recently from about 6 years ago. It’s extra special because the photographer was my mother Ramona Le Pore. She and I were in my California kitchen sharing quality TIME, something I miss a lot now that she’s with Dad in heaven.

I know she still speaks through me whenever I see someone who looks downhearted and I share something with them or say something that cheers them up; mom used to do that all the time.

When you raise a child it’s a lot like gardening in the sense that you water them with love, kindness and hope to impart the best of yourself so that they can grow into a wonderful and a beautiful adult, unique from any other.

You’ll want to encourage them every chance you get when they will pay you back in dividends for the life they lead. Don’t ever talk baby talk to it your child because they’ll just repeat it like a trained parakeet for cockatiel that just repeats whatever it hears. 

Validate your child’s worth by teaching them thanks that will help them comma and showing by your example how to lead a good life, and honest life full of kindness, compassion and love your neighbors. 

My little baby cacti that I transplanted today, with all the love and tenderness in the world saying silent prayers that they would thrive in their new home.

My gopher plant that  is also a succulent and  is supposed to bloom with yellow flowers in the summer.

That’s what you want your kids to do with every good kind word you say to them. things like reading to your kids, congratulating them when they do well will make a huge difference in their lives forever.

You’ll help them BLOOM and THRIVE.
