Remember this name: Christian Gutierrez

Remember this name: Christian Gutierrez. On Thursday he will be sentenced for the massacre of innocent nesting albatross. He and his buddies hiked for miles, carried a baseball bat and a machete, then killed for hours. He took photos. They bragged about their exploits on social media. Mr. Gutierrez’s attorney says the privileged Punahou grad and NYU student has a bright future and should not be subjected to imprisonment. What do you think? Send a note to Janice Futa, the Prosecuting Attorney, to tell her how you feel. Today or tomorrow, latest. https://honoluluprosecutor.org/contact-us/

“Beneath the Salish Sea” (2016).
This piece by Susan Point is made with red and yellow cedar and acrylic, includes a “spindle whorl” motif with a central sea urchin surrounded by crabs. Working for over 35 years, Point is a Coast Salish artist who has been expressing her heritage with drawings, prints, sculptures, and carvings, using a variety of materials including ink, paint, paper, wood, metal, ceramic, glass, stone. A disk through which a central rod is inserted used to spin and weave, the spindle whorl forms a central element and foundation for her art. To understand better what makes the Canadian Southwest/Pacific Northwest special, travellers to and residents of the city should visit the Vancouver Art Gallery.

“Mission requires margin

“Mission requires margin.” – Pastor Brady Boyd, Addicted to Busy
I just finished this book today and highly recommend it.
It’s so easy to get addicted to our work or even social media.
How are you creating margin and resting this weekend?
I got a hammock and a hammock stand for my birthday.
Ever since we were missionaries in Belize, I’ve loved hammocks. However, we haven’t had one or the space for one in years.
I was disappointed when my hammock stand came as it was so big. I measured it and the numbers showed it was NOT going to fit on our patio. It was literally just a few inches too long.
However, I felt the prompting to try setting it up today anyway. I cleared off our patio and started setting up the hammock stand.
And because of the way it is shaped, it just fit. I was so excited!
I felt like it was God’s little gift to me today.
I’ve been laying in my hammock and that’s actually where I finished this book.
It truly is a place where I can feel relaxed and rested.
How about you? What do you do to break away from the busyness and learn to truly rest?
What is one thing you could do this week to put more margin into your life?

Mary Magdalene as Orantes by Marko Rupnik

Mary Magdalene as Orantes by Marko Rupnik.
This posture is not a lamenting pose but is called the orans pose, meaning “prayer” in Latin. The archetype of the woman with arms raised is referred to as Orantes, and may have been a borrowed image from ancient Goddess worshipping societies such as those in ancient Sumer and Crete. Orantes figures prominently in funerary art dating back to the Roman catacombs of the 2nd and 3 rd centuries, AD. She is always feminine in gender and has been interpreted in a variety of ways such as denoting prayer, the soul in a state of peace in paradise, or as a figure transmitting peace to the bereaved. Margaret Starbird suggests she probably represented the Goddess as psychopomp, one who acts as mediator between heaven and earth assisting the soul on the journey into the afterlife. Her spiritual power and purpose arises out of her role as a high priestess. Mary Magdalene is often depicted as Orantes. She is depicted in the orans pose in numerous representations of the crucifixion and entombment in iconography and paintings of the Renaissance.

Our Shopping afternoon in Kenya

1  
Our Shopping afternoon in Kenya.
1. Public shared Tuk-tuk to shopping centre #1. Cost .20 cents each.
L loves sitting with driver!
2. Buy mobile roaming for phone ( to backup dodgy internet) but credit card wont work in shop.
3. Tuk-tuk to supermarket #2 (budget shop)
4. Man charges me on credit card $400 for $40 shop but instead of voiding transaction he refunds causing card fees of $8 to me ( I confess I was not the model citizen and got VERY cranky because I asked him 5 times to cancel not refund and now we wait up to 9 days for refund here and it leaves me out of pocket.
5. Walk with ‘golden’ groceries to supermarket #3
Meet people we know. Strange we are befriending locals and chatting at the shops (note to self to dress for shopping).
6. Home in tuk-tuk but still missing lots of needed food so will go to supermarket #4 and #5 on Monday.
7. Start to cook and all pots going and the power goes out and I nearly catch fire!
Thank goodness they switch on generator.
That ends my day….

Some of you think this business isn’t for you

Some of you think this business isn’t for you. Some of you are curious, or interested in joining me, but are terrified of failure or posting on social media or being “that girl.” I honestly had those same concerns before I started.
Let me share, though…
✅This business is SOUND. It’s called RESIDUAL INCOME. It’s not a get rich quick scheme, it’s a legitimate business model. It really is a life-changing gift.
✅These products work. They work well… REALLY well!! If people don’t buy them from you they will buy them from someone else.
✅You are likely on your phone anyway!!
…in line at the grocery store
…at work
…in the school pickup line
…while your kiddos nap
…in the bathroom
…laying in bed
…watching tv
My team is growing fast and working hard. I want to help YOU achieve the success we have found, and experience this gift, too. It doesn’t hurt to learn, right?! And, then, with full information make an informed decision!! #lifechangingopportunity #yesYOUcan

What exactly is Active Hydration Serum and why do you need it

1  
What exactly is Active Hydration Serum and why do you need it? You’ve got a moisturizer that gives plenty of hydration, right?
❌ WRONG!!!
Moisturizers RETAIN. Hydrators ATTRACT.
Our NEW Active Hydration Serum literally pulls water from the air to PLUMP UP your cells by up to 200% in the first use! THINK RAISIN ➡️ GRAPE. When skin is dehydrated, it creates more oil to make up for the missing water. This can cause breakouts, irritation, dry patches, dullness, and wrinkles (remember the raisin?), but when skin is well-hydrated, it is more plump, flexible, and resilient!
Active Hydration Serum is available TODAY May 16th!
