Plans For You – 5 by Joanna Quintrell at https://abide.is/prayer/bb7vu3 on #abideis
Any Christian can say this and meditate upon this. ABIDE is a free app that you can access from your smartphone.
Will all need to balance our spiritual life, no matter what situation you may be in.
Even if you’re a Buddhist, if you are Native American, if you are Jewish, if you are Pentecostal if you are a Jehovah Witness, or you’re Mormon, Protestant or any other faith…… We all have many things in common…..

Will believe in a power greater than ourselves. We all had mothers and fathers- even if you never knew them and even if they put you up for adoption your mother still gave you life.
We all have known what it’s like to love and not be loved.
We know what it’s like to fail and we all know what it’s like to succeed.
We are all human beings and more alike than we all realize.
We weren’t created to be like each but we were created to appreciate and respect the differences in each other.
If the United States government would think like that, we wouldn’t have wars and instead of guns with bullets, people would strive for understanding instead of killing whatever they didnt understand.
So take time to realize that the person you’re talking to may be different than you, but has their own story too.
They may not be as bad as you think they are.

If you have epilepsy like I do, and even though your medicine works most of time, but you’re not feeling that great because you overdid it -like I did today….
Say this prayer.
If you have cancer or some other life-threatening disease….say this prayer. You will find strength and hope.

If you have Alzheimer’s disease or any other didability- physical or hidden- say this very short inspiring prayer I found on the app ABIDE.
You will feel better and I hopr you find strength, as I did.

Heaven on Earth by Os Hillman at https://abide.is/prayer/blvn7e on #abideis
Here is one of God’s little animals he made I spotted sunning outside a building in the big city. I am relatively new to Las Vegas, Nevada, and June 10th 2015 will make my one year anniversary of relocating from Southern CA.
Take time to pray no matter what religion you are what faith what creed. pray to do good for other people, pray to make the world a better place. make yourself a better person- the more patient person.
Have a wonderful day and a wonderful and safe St. PATRICK’S DAY.
TRY AND NOT SPEND HALF THE NIGHT IN A BAR. ..MAKE IT MEMORABLE. WHEN YOU’RE DRUNK, YOU HAVE NO MEMORY OF WHAT YOU DO.

The first time I heard this was by Josh Grobin, another prodigy and mega talent. When I heard it I had to buy the CD and used to sing both parts as my real prayer every night.
Prayer to me has nothing to do with “religion”, as all religion is made by men….I am taking the belief that praying to a higher power greater than all of us combined.
I hope by sharing this piece it helps you connect to a divineness within yourself, as it did me and still does!

No matter what your faith and what yoy believe…
I wish you peace of mind and that your heavy burdens be lifted, as though transforming a battleship’s weight to the whisp of a feather.
I hope you laugh much, cry little, but still know tears are cathartic and their droplets wash away sadness and grief buried in your heart.
I hope you will choose your friends carefully and carve the words you say as though carved from the finest marble. Make your statements and the points you make good enough, and meaningful enough that your carved words in marble form a beautiful statue for all the world to see, as in display for all time.
Give freely not caring what you get.
Live to do your best, live to your highest human potential, and compare yourself little.
Be true to yourself and the rest will follow.
Do what you do in all things with all the passion in your soul.
If you write, let your pen be set afire with the passion in your soul.
If you teach, teach with all the zeal in the world, ever patient, ever kind, ever imaginative of new ways to get your point across. Remember the subject is new to them, even though yoy are familiar.
If you cook, tranform the best ingredients you can find and combine the flavors in such harmonious ways the taster would think they were married….or like each ingredient is an instrument in an orchestra. And in the first bite, the symphomy begins.
Find your creative outlets and passions and each day do something to foster your skill’s growth or expertise.
Always keep learning,
becoming, growing like a flower whose growth cycle keeps regenerating….

Even my ex-husband the rocket scientist was not an athiest, because he knew prayer worked in miraculous, unexplainable ways.
It isn’t important we understand everything in life; we never will understand all of life’s mysteries.
I had enough faith to fill a mountaintop and still do because I am a walking miracle and have lived most of my life with intractable epilepsy. After 2001 when I divorced my ex-husband who was never happy and was constantly depressed, did I realize that his problems weighed me down.
Some have it all in life…the successful job, the huge house and the everything…but are not happy people.
Some find the best in every one they meet and though their lives are far from perfect, they are told they have good Karma and are so wonderful to be around.
It is all how you play the hand God gives you in the game of life.
I have always known, that though at before Vimpat came out I am taking with the highest success rate for seizure control and lowest amount of side effects by UCB for partial seizures ever in history; health was a hit and miss thing for me.
Now I want to be a spokesperson for the drug and UCB…just need to contact the right person.
Back to the opening paragraph and photo…
We don’t have to understand why something works….but that it does.
I have a simple motto in life:
Do what works and do it over and over again, and avoid what doesn’t work….
And learn from your mistakes and don’t repeat them.

Home at Last
We go through things in life that have us wondering why it all happened or we needed to go through these things. As we get older, the types of experiences number and we go through some trials, some tribulations and others-just puzzling with no real answers why.
What can we do when these things occur?
As Winston Churchill said: “What do you do when you go through hell? Keep on going! Keep going!”
I am typing with both hands now, and though it doesn’t feel like it did before and my left wrist is still sore-it moves without surgery! And though my index and ring fingers are sore when I type, I am typing back at my 80 w.p.m. and in time-I know it will get better.
My idea of occupational therapy is making homemade bread, typing, cooking, playing piano and just watching, very carefully, how I pick up things.
My upright rosewood grand I will play again hopefully soon…
I want to thank all of my many dedicated readers who said prayers for me that my wrist would mend itself and my fingers would work again, as before way me-because that prayer came true and was answered.
I also want to thank the many who have followed along, Like Paton Place-me, my living situation and who prayed I would find a wonderful place to live.
I found it and yes, I am home at last.
I am now a personal chef and caregiver for a wonderful lady in Laguna Woods, CA and all of her grown up children feel I am their Answered Prayer. They are mine and it is so peaceful, quiet and serene here. I am doing the same thing I did for my mom and dad but this time being appreciated and respected and compensated for it all!
She is my new found friend and the look in her eyes is one of genuine appreciation and love and kindness. When her son Don brought me to see the place I would be living and to meet his mother Mary Ann yesterday morning-I reached out my hand and said, “It is nice to meet you Mary Ann; I have heard so much about you!” She looked a me with a big smile and opened her arms up to give me a huge hug instead. We both wear the same Miraculous Medal around our necks and her mother prayed to the Blessed Virgin Mary-just as my mother Ramona still does. Aida had a smile like the sunshine and was also warm and kind and it was so wonderful to meet a family who so genuinely work with one another and care about their mother as much as I cared about mine.
My big bedroom overlooks a large balcony and this morning I was able to hear the birds from the evergreens planted all over the 18 miles of what is called Laguna Woods Village-sing their morning serenade.
There are shuttles that go in and out of Laguna Woods Village all day long-and since I don’t drive for medical reasons-it is like heaven to me. No more walking a mile or more in the heat, waiting an hour for a bus-from OCTA! I walk down the stairs and there are benches scattered all over that will take me virtually anywhere I would want to go!
Anyway, all I know is my blood pressure has dropped since moving here, I have met countless nice and helpful people here. For instance, I was trying to go to church with Mary Ann this morning but had no idea when the Laguna Woods Village buses ran. With a place as large as this, it is no wonder I feel lost here! I got a map of the area and opened it up and it was still confusing. I kept asking people how to get a bus back to the Laguna Woods Village area and ran across Mary and David-a handsome sweet couple coming out of J.C. Penny’s where I was told to wait for the bus-but I knew the person who told me was wrong! Turns out, I guess I am a good “people reader” or have great hunches because Mary and David were my neighbors! Mary has the prettiest eyes and beautiful, curly, short hair and David, even though he was walking with a walker, with a hurt knee-made time for me-and said, “Oh, let’s just take her there Mary!”
I think these two really had wings hidden under their shirts! I know there was no random chance here, as sure as I know I felt a miracle was lurking on Craig’s List the day I found the ad that changed my life and Mary Ann’s. As much joy as Mary Ann has added to my life, in the short span since I have known her, I hope to add quality to her days as well.
I am looking forward to bringing in my desk and swiveling reclining chairs in on my balcony and getting a little table to set my coffee cup down when I listen to God put on a Morning Serenade of birds here.
Here in what I call my Writing Room….or Outdoor Office
It will be nice to bring in a few of my beloved books I miss, make meals with my Bobby Flay fire red cooking pans-that will cook meals for Mary Ann and hopefully her children and their children. Little did I know something like that would happen when I bought them. I only knew-with the way I take care of things, they would outlive me-like my rosewood grand piano.
Just when you feel like giving up-DON’T!
Just when you think you are forsaken-PRAY!
Open your heart up and lift your hands upward and pray the prayer of a despondent one, and then use the brain God gave you and do everything in your power to CHANGE YOUR SITUATION.
Chances are, a miracle will happen, just like it did to me.

My friend Brother Carl Frye go all the way back to high school years. He writes some of the most poignant and inspiring things on Facebook that he knows I find and read and every once in awhile print on here. He gives me permission to do so because he feels he is blessed and his words help others. I know they do. Many times they help me think in higher planes and look at the good side when even I am tired from working too hard.
In The Cool of the Day by Carl Frye
Written via Facebook November 30th, 2013
In the cool of the day you may be on a long road walking alone thinking about your life, and your purpose in it. As you walk you see the birds flying through the sky, and all the animals of the forest stirring about, but yet you feel along, but you’re not. God took the first step with you you took your first step on life’s road, and he has been following you since then so there is no reason to feel lonely.
You’re never alone, no matter where you are, where you go and what you do in life. The road of life may seem lonely, but really it’s never too crowded. God is always there.
Little would I think when I was watching the news on CNN last night I would hear of such a horrifying and sad story about the loss of 19 heroic fireman in Arizona who lost their lives fighting a mighty blaze.
Never in my almost 52 years on this earth have I heard of that many fireman losing their lives to keep a blaze away from people’s homes.
I was born in Tucson and visited my uncle there recently and know firsthand how hot and dry the Sonoran desert can be. It was the biggest reason I decided not to move there, even though the apartments were very inexpensive compared to over priced southern CA.
I want to say God bless you to all the families and friends of each fireman who will never come home to their earthly home but who has come home to His Maker God Almighty where through their incredibly selfless actions and heroic deeds I am sure are sitting at the highest helm in Heaven.
I hope all the wives of each fireman somehow find peace and solace in their hearts and an angel is beside them when they sleep so they don’t feel lonely.
I also pray for the children who lost their fathers all too soon in this tragedy. They are their father’s sons and daughters and they also will be great and do great works just as he did. I hope their tears are wiped by their mothers and Great God Almighty gives them the Courage they need to simply go on.
Here is a salute from Paulette Le Pore Motzko to the Hot Shot Fire Team and their families and friends.
I didn’t know them but it puts tears in my eyes now.
I am sorry for your loss at this time.
Paulette’s Prayer and The Ways it Has Been Answered
Writing Your Prayer
Copyright April 2013 Written by Paulette Le Pore Motzko
I found this when going through some of the many things I wrote on MS Word in My Documents folder. I didn’t realize so many of my prayers had been answered until reading this and being astonished at how my life, ever so slowly, transformed itself into what it is today on April 14th, 2013.
My mother always told me that I could achieve anything any one else could if I only tried. She was a visionary and a creative person and I was given many gifts from her in those ways. She is 81 years young and I hope that I can encourage her to create once again a picture or a painting or something else she loves today. After my dad’s death last September 2012, it was a blessing in many ways because he was suffering so much, but it took a long time for her to fully understand that he truly was not here. She has advanced Alzheimer’s disease and telling her once was bad, but it took three times that I had to tell my mom when I lived next to her, before she truly understood he touched the Face of God. Once I described it that way, that he was no longer in pain, and his prayers were answered, then she smiled and knew what I had said. Then we hugged and hugged some more and they bring tears to me today to recall.
I am much stronger than I was then, and I have fought to achieve the basic things I needed mentioned in this prayer.
For instance, I now have Medical insurance and it pays for my very expensive medicine for epilepsy after 12 years of fighting. My medicine alone is many thousands a year and I was literally selling things each month to afford it. I have worked furiously to create what is now the web sites that are flourishing and are becoming more popular:

I no longer live next to what was my parent’s place and is now my mother’s place, and am awaiting my one bedroom apartment home in Santa Ana, CA. It will be a dream come true when it is finished in June 2013 as Good Will Industries will help me with my grocery shopping, which as you can see was on my “list” from years ago.
I am way more healthy than I was then and have lost close to 70 pounds and feel like a new person.
I got my “magic pills” which are Tegretol and Vimpat-a very expensive drug for complex partial epilepsy, which I have created by UCB. Every time I go pick up my pills at Walgreens I say to myself three “thank God’s”-one for the drug being there for me to take, another for the insurance paying for it, and for me being so healthy in mind, body and soul on it.
I no longer associate with the negative verbally abusive people who were dragging me down to their lowly size, and many were my siblings. My dad continually did it but he is no longer here of this earth.
Also, there are several gentleman callers who are interested in me and one in particular who is having a procedure to repair his shoulder that was injured while he was in the service. He envisions he and I together in the future. Time will tell what happens.
Since this prayer was written in 2009 so many things have changed for the better. It is only through documenting our experiences today can we see our progress and how we have achieved what we set out to do. I believe that there is a God or an Omnipotent Presence that surrounds and Guides us all. I am not going to preach to you here in this article, but rather to tell you encourage you to write your own prayer.
How this was done was I wrote down the key things I wanted changed in my life and that I needed to live. Health always comes first because without it, we cannot fully achieve our full potential. People come next and our dreams and goals.
I created CARestaurantShowCase.com and hope that it will become successful the more time I can invest with it.
Totally Inspired Mind has been the most rewarding to create back in October when I realized that I could no longer single-handedly help and take care of mom. Her Alzheimer’s disease has worsened to drastic proportions. I stayed in a hotel I liked that had a really great internet connection and was located to all things I loved in Huntington Beach, and it seemed the words and ideas flowed. I wasn’t continually preoccupied with someone knocking on the door every 5 minutes which could test a saint!
To date there are 836 followers on the site and is read by over 20 countries and the site is still in its infancy.
To make this personal to you, I recommend that you write your own prayer today.
Date it and then type it or write it as though God or Jesus or whoever you pray to is there by your side or a dear friend.
Next month take your prayer out and look at them side by side then alter the prayer as your prayers begin being answered.
My book Self-Fulfilling Prophecies and Positive Affirmations, is being written and I may change the title upon completion. More exercises like this one will be in it.
That is what I do when I pray and that is how I have done it all my life.
Say your prayer every day and watch things change in your life.
If you notice things improving, please take the time to write me at TotallyInspiredPC@gmail.com and tell me how your life is improving.
It is a combination of you making it happen in act, word and deed and the faith that things will change through a higher power.
Something I have noticed is that whenever I do something good for someone, something wonderful happens to me, and even if it doesn’t, I feel wonderful doing it.
I hope that by sharing this with the world it will make you realize that you are in more control of your life than you know. You can be like the “guidance system” in a rocket that communicates what direction the rocket will go.
Your dreams can go as high as the stars in the sky if you only want them to!

Paulette’s Prayer November 6th, 2009
Please protect my health and make my pills work, give me joy and new hope for a new day. Allow me to never have another worry about money as long as I live and make the most out of the many skills you have given me.
Let me meet only people who are: kind, caring, empathetic, compassionate and good-natured who value what is most in life-You and the good things in life.
Also, let me avoid all those who are not good for me in some capacity, avoiding any physical and/or verbal abuse.
Let me attract Good in Life as though as were a magnet that radiates outward like the sun, bringing it closer to me.
Let me do something with my music so that the world may hear my songs that I have written since
Let my words inspire others and let me continue to write the book that I am working on now visualizing it sitting on the bookshelf at the bookstore.
Let my business thrive and let me create new and better services and make my clients happy only to return and tell others about me-creating a chain reaction.
Let me find the man that I will be with for the rest of my life, who will love me, respect me, and think I am beautiful inside and out…and never let me know the word lonely as long as YOU are NEAR.
Let me know what peace is of knowing that I have enough money, insurance to pay for my medical needs, and let me strive to be the most able bodied woman I can be.
Let me be seizure free and aspire to great things and make YOU PROUD as long as I am alive.

I don’t know who wrote this but I discovered it on Facebook just now and thought I would share it all with the now 816 followers of Totally Inspired Mind. I have my house nearly packed up and it is strange to see it all in boxes scattered throughout the place. I have been here for 12 years and I will be heading for Tucson, Arizona very soon!
