May I humbly request my readers and friends to please pray for the grandfather of Penlighted who was diagnosed to be suffering from brain tumor and may be scheduled for a brain operation in the Philippines. Let us also pray that God provide them the financial means to cover all the expenses for her grandfather. By the stripes of Jesus Penlighted's grandfather is healed. This we pray heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen. Thank you all very much. God bless us all.
*** Message of Penlighted
Just a while ago we received a news from my relatives in the Philippines. My grandfather, the father of my mom, is in the ICU right now and was diagnosed to have a brain tumor. He was given medicines and the doctors said that if he won't respond to it they will see if he can have an operation. As of now we really don't have the complete details of how he is...
I am humbly asking your prayers for my grandfather that may he receive a complete healing through God's love and mercy with the medicines that he will be taking. Please also pray for our family that may we all be ready in terms of our financial so we can help our grandfather.
Thank you very much for all your prayers.

I always consider myself an OFW (Overseas Filipino Worker because both my parents are OFW) even though I a migrant Filipino. Thanks to the new technology it eases the pain of being away from your love ones you can chat see each other through webcamera but NOTHING compares to pain when one is sick or in pain and you can not hug or kiss or just be there comforting each other awaiting the sad news.
My father was supposed to be ok and he actually was fine last Sunday, he wash the dishes but they have to perform another operation because they have to clean somethingthere is a swelling in his brain so he was operated for the second time last Monday but this morning he was bleeding so he was operated again. It looks like the doctors made a mistake .
Right now I feel so much pain that I want to join my mother and 2 brothers and sister in Madrid but I can’t do that right now many things is playing in my mind but I told my mother it’s beyond human hands we all need to pray because what I can remember is that all I asked from our Lord He granted all my prayers
For my blogger friends knew about my father
History I will post some pictures of him.
I can say that yes working abroad makes our life better and OFW’s are considered the new heroes by sending money to their families. Those remittances helps the economy of the Philippines but it’s also has consequences.
So if I can’t update this blog you know why.
Please Pray for my father’s recovery and our family to be strong in this time of crisis.

Please pray for Shiela. Your prayers can go a long way to ease her pains and discomfort. It will cost us nothing but a few moments of communing with God to alleviate her sufferings. Will we deny her those few significant moments? - Thank you so much and God bless us all - Mel

Today is the World Autism Awareness Day and I have to post about it. But what is really is autism? Here are some myths and facts that I found in the www.austisme.dk non danish can use google translate I think it very informative
Myth - Autism is a sickness
Autism is not a disease but a development disorder. It is a complicated condition that can be caused by different development of the brain or other biological factors.
Myth-Autism is cause by parental rejection and bad parenting.
Autism has nothing to do with upbringing or how parents treat their children.
Myth - People with autism have no feelings.
People with autism have feelings, but find it hard to express because of their condition.
Myth - People with autism have no imagination.
People with autism can easily create fantasy but it hard for them to imagine things they haven’t tried before.
One of my friend has a child who is autistic and my brother’s nephew has ADHD which is short for the Attentive Deficiency Hyperactivity Disorder which is a different diagnosis form autism although they have similarities. So I know the hardships they went through. But fortunately in Denmark there schools for special children because they can not learn from a regular environment they cannot concentrate and they need teachers with special education to teach children with learning disabilities. Early diagnosis is a good way to help children so they can be help or they are talking about that the state is spending a lot of money in special tutor to students who might be autistic or ADHD because you can see physically if they are autistic or not if you are not aware what is autistic behavior are. Read more aboutautism and ADHD inthi svery informative site http://www.retrainthebrain.com/autism.html
When I learned that I am pregnant I became conscious of everything I eat and put on my body fearing that I will harm my child. I still have the fears since when at 8 moths he was screened or undergone test by a special child care nurse if he has some early signs of autism of any disabilities. That test to check if a child can concentrate by showing if I can remember it right 2 ball and just move it if the child will eventually grab it and it took my son a little while. Later on the nurse said she was afraid that he will not grab it. But that doesn’t end he also went with some difficulty with biting, hitting and only do parallel play meaning he do what others are doing but don’t want to join them. But this time I’m so happy that he is on the right track in his social skills. He is actually advanced child which explains that he should always needs challenges he can actually rad the alphabet and nos. 1-50 at the age of 2.5.
People should be aware that children or people with autism are also human they have feelings and not totally handicapped but they should be understand and not be outcast. Stop looking blaming the parents or the mother that they did something wrong but who knows how the brain works. I was once hurt when I heard people which some of them are close friends of mine commenting about my son that he is different that he is so aggressive that he should be in a special school which means for autistic or gifted children. I appreciate their cincern but they should not outcast my son because of one incident. I can not just imagine how the parents of autistic children experience.
Let us join the autism awareness day and it should not be today and everyday we should support parents and treat people with autism with respect and understanding.
This is dedicated to Earth

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.
2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's lifetime.
3. When the perso n's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.
5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastrointestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
9. When the body ha s too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.
10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.
CANCER CELLS FEED ON:
a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cu tting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc. are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in color. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos or sea salt.
b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells are being starved.
c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.
d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).
e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer fighting properties. Water-best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.
13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.
14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body's own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted , or unneeded cells.
15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, unforgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy < class="yshortcuts">cancer cells.
1. No plastic containers in micro.
2. No water bottles in freezer.
3. No plastic wrap in microwave.
Johns Hopkins has recently sent this out in its newsletters. This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well. Dioxin chemicals causes cancer, especially breast cancer. Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic. Recently, Dr. Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us.
He said that we should not be heating our food in the microwave using plastic containers.
This especially applies to foods that contain fat. He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body. Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic containers for heating food. You get the same results, only without the dioxin.
So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., should be removed from the container and heated in something else. Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper. It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away from the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons.
Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food. Cover food with a paper towel instead.
IT IS REALLY BEST NOT TO USE THE MICROWAVE AT ALL.
This is an article that should be sent to anyone important in your life.

Schoolgirl Starved to Death after Dental Operation
An 8-year old British girl who was terrified of dentists refused to eat or even talk after all her milk teeth were taken out has been reported dead last December 2, 2008. The kid named Sophie Waller was found dead in her bed at home despite attempts to feed her and treating the trauma caused by the dental operation.
It was later noted by a pathologist to the inquest that Sophie had died of acute renal failure from starvation and dehydration.
As a mother, I personally believe that the parents should have taken precautions in encouraging the child to undergo a dental operation. Gosh, I mean - a single tooth extraction can make an adult petrified to see the dentist so what more for an 8-year old child to be pulled out of all her baby teeth?
I honestly find this news so tragic and I personally believe that the child’s death is senseless. To Sophie, God bless you and I hope you are now happy in heaven.

Aden was diagnosed on January 6, 2009 with Stage 4 Kidney Cancer. It has already metastasized to his lungs.
He showed few signs of being sick, except for the fact that he was taking a bit too long to recover from a common cold. His parents noticed a little lump on his side just under Aden's ribcage. They took him to a pediatrician thinking he probably had mono.
Please include Aden in your prayers...

The Moonlite Bunny Ranch in Nevada, the brothel that is arranging and hosting the deal, is especially gung-ho about Dylan. “Natalie is a virgin and would like to sell this priceless and rare commodity in a very exclusive and private setting,” says Bunny Ranch owner Dennis Hof.
While any reasonable person should question the commodity’s rarity, more than 10,000 bidders have stepped forward to bid for Dylan’s … ah … purity. If the Bunny Ranch’s owner is to be believed, someone has offered $3.7 million.
What does the feminist community have to say about this outrageous exploitation of this young girl? Not much so far. Searching Google yields only the faintest and infrequent article suggesting that a feminist is uncomfortable with this sexploitation. I, for one, am nearly speechless.
My friend Sarah is a reliable monitor of Feminism from a Christian perspective. She writes,
The lack of moral outrage by feminism doesn’t surprise me as contemporary feminism has discarded the good it once represented in order to promote a completely unfettered lifestyle. Women are free to be exploited themselves, and this is somehow empowering. In fact, I’d go so far as to suggest that by creating a culture where women’s bodies, eggs, and chastity are up for sale, ‘created’ is a pleasant (euphemism) for human trafficking. There is no need for restraint in a world where individuals willingly put a price tag on what is priceless.
What about the FBI? What about the police? Can the FTC do anything? No. No. and No.
Legal experts seem agreed that this is a First Amendment issue. Since prostitution is legal in Nevada, the services may be advertised in areas where it would be illegal so long as the service is performed in a state where it is legal. (I feel a little dirty just writing that sentence.)
One does not have to a prude or a stereotypical Puritan to take offense at this advertisement. Let us call this what it is; Sex for Sale. Whether to pay for college or perform some perverted sociological experiment, tolerating such behavior can only harm future generations of young women.

Esther is a story of stoic faith in God by a faithful servant who did not shirk her divine responsibility even at the risk of losing her own life. Amidst the backdrop of the mighty Persian empire of the Medes, Esther became queen of the entire empire when the reigning queen found disfavor in the eyes of the king. Esther was chosen from among all the lady candidates of the entire empire for the position of the new queen. She shared this powerful story of the Jewish struggles in Persia after the downfall of the Babylonian empire with her wise uncle- Mordecai. But a wicked prime minister of the king who was bestowed full honors plotted revenge against Mordecai for the latter's failure to pay him homage. His name was Haman. He tricked the king to issue a decree that would annihilate all Jews in the empire. Upon hearing this, Mordecai sought the queen's help to plead the cause of the Jews before the king. Knowing the law that forbids any person from entering the presence of the king unless summoned, Ester agreed and uttered this most famous line, "I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish."
Queen Esther was able to convince the king to repeal the law and Mordecai became the new prime minsiter and the wicked Haman was hanged in his own gallows. The triumph of the Jews over their adversaries is being celebrated up to this day in the feast of Purim in honor of the valiant queen who stood by her people in the face of certain death. God blessed both queen Esther and Mordecai with power and wealth second only to the king of Persia.
