I just had to share this timely story from my morning devotions by Dr's. Les and Leslie Parrott...

"A friend is one who walks in when others walk out." - Walter Winchell

“On this day in 1936, American track-and-field star Jesse Owens was on a course to win the long jump at the Olympic games in Berlin, Germany. After all, he had set three world records in one day in 1935. He had a running broad jump record of 26 feet 8¼ inches that would stand for twenty-five years. But at one crucial moment in his career he needed the encouragement of a friend, and just about the unlikeliest person stepped up to be that friend."

"As he walked to the long jump pit to make his jump for qualification, Owens saw a German competitor taking practice jumps—in the twenty-six-foot range. Owens, fully aware of the racial tension caused by his presence, was nervous. He knew about the Nazis’ desire to prove Aryan superiority, and here was a German who looked quite capable of doing just that.
Fumbling under the pressure, Owens made his first jump from well beyond the takeoff board—a foul. Then he fouled the second attempt. One more, and he would be disqualified from the event.

"It was at that point that the tall
German approached Owens. He introduced himself as Luz Long and proceeded to talk to Owens for a few minutes. Lest you miss the significance, remember that this was the black son of a sharecropper and the white German, in Nazi Germany, chatting in view of the entire stadium. What were they saying?
Long had recognized Owens’s skill and, apparently, his nerves. He pointed out that Owens could easily jump the qualifying distance, so he suggested starting several inches before the takeoff board, to avoid a fatal third foul."

"Taking Long’s advice, Owens qualified easily, going on to set an Olympic record and earn the second of four gold medals during the 1936 Olympics. And the first person to congratulate Owens was Luz Long in full view of Adolf Hitler."

"At the beginning of World War II, a paragon of Germany’s strength offered technical assistance and words of encouragement to someone who, according to the rules of the game, was technically a foe both on and off the field. Owens never saw Long again, because Long was killed in the ensuing war. But he never forgot him. “You could melt down all the medals and cups I have,” Owens later wrote, “and they wouldn’t be plating on the twenty-four-carat friendship I felt for Luz Long."

"This unlikely friendship demonstrates an invaluable lesson in close connections: When someone goes out of the way—regardless of what others may think or say—to put our interests above his or her own, that person is sure to earn our affection and loyalty. How much more so for marriage!"

“What you say flows from what is in your heart."
- Luke 6:45
This wisdom came from my morning devotion. I'm convinced of its truth and its implications in our lives. All too often people allow their hearts to harden or worse, grow weary and lose hope. In a culture where science, debate and logic tend to trump tender heartedness, it can seem like like speaking from the heart is weak.
But what if we are speaking from a heart that isn't well or has been locked in a back room somewhere?
I think heart health, in this sense might just be our biggest healthcare challenge today.
In times of chaos, fear or stress I can be very prone to speaking before strengthening my heart with His love.
Whether it's politicians, or good friends in a living room, cutting through the "words" and keying into the state of the heart you are dealing with can change the dynamic of the whole conversation.
How cool would it be to see Hillary and Trump sit down and have a "heart to heart" instead of a viscous debate?
Imagine political campaigns and ads that really reflected healthy hearts for bettering our world?
More importantly, how is your heart health today? What are you doing to ensure that what you put out there in our world flows from a healthy heart?

Remember who the REAL enemy is...
Visit the OGG blog for the whole story.

The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities,against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." - Ephesians 6: 10-17

These are traits of the strong. In our growing selfie world remember what REAL strength and character exhibits.

“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.”
‭‭- Colossians‬ ‭3:12-15‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Healthy Habits for the Home:
Purification blend - my go to 💧❤️

We are in the process of moving and boy does it stir up a lot of dust and add extra challenges to the body. Dust aside (I wish!) we are getting our current house ready to sell and having repairs done almost daily. Many of these "improvements" bring noxious fumes into our normally green home.
I'm sooooo thankful for my Purification blend and multiple diffusers throughout the home. In fact, my first experience diffusing oils was Purification when we were putting our house in Florida on the market. You see it was about 11 years ago when I first started using essential oils. I had never diffused before and had burnt chick peas recently. I had tried everything to get rid of that awful smell and nothing worked. I looked up odor eating oils and Purification blend came up!
Long story shorter, it worked AND our house sold faster than the others for sale in the neighborhood... Coincidence?

This move is local, but dust and repair fumes are still present. My Purification blend is worth it's weight in gold. Not only is it supporting clean air at our current home, but I will also diffuse in the new home before, during and after our move! #Purification #essentialoils +Young Living Essential Oils
