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.

If I wrote my entire name, complete with my middle name, confirmation name, maiden name and then married name it would look something like this….

Paulette Ann Therese Le Pore Motzko.

I was confirmed in 2001 after reading prayers of my Nanny’s and seeing a St. Therese chaplet advertised in the church bulletin.  

I sent for it and began saying the 24 Glory Be To The Father prayers, (one for each of the 24 years she lived), asking her to carry my intention’s to the Throne of God like a bouquet of sweet roses. Roses started appearing in places where no roses grew and always when I asked for something,  or the prayer would be answered.  

That’s when I wanted to become confirmed, adding Therese to my name as a testimony to her influence in my life, which was very late for any Catholic.  I never cared about what any one else did,  but always stayed true to myself and genuine of heart. My Mother was my Sponsor with the Bishop. Those photos are stellar to look back on today. 

Even if you’re not Catholic but Christian, Muslim, Jewish or any other faith; there is great merit to be gleaned in St. Therese’s wisdom-filled words.

Below is a chaplet of St. Therese. 

Every Action Has a Chain Reaction in Life -Make Your Actions Great, Memorable and Lasting!

  • Make the things you’re involved with in life be positive chain reactions.
  •  Make people glad they know you. 
  • Don’t be manipulative. 
  • Don’t be a user. 
  • Be a giver. 
  • Don’t look for something every time you do something – good or positive for someone for no reason.
  • When you give someone a gift that’s what that means – it’s a gift. You’re not looking for something in return. If you are looking for something in return, then that means you are manipulative and you’re doing it because you expect something- and it’s not a gift it all is it?

Make your intentions genuine.

Be sincere.

Have integrity.

Have big picture ideas where you see the big picture of the entire world and much as the nose on your face.

Shoot for longevity in the projects you’re working on.

Genuinely try and help every client, as unique a’s they are.

When you open your mind and think of opportunities and what you can give, and ways you could help each client—great things happen. 

Don’t compare ourself to what everyone else is doing. Think outside the box and think for yourself. Expand on your ideas.

If all you do is follow others, you could be following mediocrity! You want to be the one that leads the way to new, brighter Horizons!

Opportunities will arise that will appear as though if by Magic. I am a very spiritual, intuitive, Christian lady; I know that “magic” is GOD. 

Blessings will surface effortlessly when you have your mind off the dollars you’re getting for the job. Instead, focus on building lasting relationships and building in creating extraordinary projects that lead to recurring work and passive income.

Life is way more than quick payoffs.

Success isn’t measured by how much money you have in the bank but rather what kind of human being you are and what your value system is. You can make good money and add value to other people’s lives and enjoy doing it. All those things are possible for you and I. You have to give it all some serious thought though, with no distractions.

Everything you do in life builds your reputation, and from your soul, your mind and attitude, your heart and your brain- your reputation will follow you the rest of your life and each positive, proactive action carves your reputation.

Do good. 

Do great.

Do exemplary things.

Don’t be afraid of hard work because there is a huge payoff that will help more than you awaiting you.

“Lightness” by Caroline Slee: A Beautiful Poem About How We Can Transform Adversity into Clarity with Hope

Lightness…#MondayBlogs – http://wp.me/p1kUsy-AT

Our feet grow heavy with grief

and so we begin to dance

Our minds cloud with fear

until we transform

Every minute

a whisper of hope against impossible odds

Moving with instinct

flowing like water

Boundless

we create our shape

and chart a map

unexplored

Our hearts rise

bright against mourning

opposing forces

lifting us once more

The veil thins

when we choose

to see…

Thanks to Carolyn slee sending me a word document of her work, I was able to copy and paste it onto my post comma so you could immediately see how wonderful and transforming her words are. Anyone can enjoy something that is good, it is a real art to transform the negative into the positive.
