Life can pull us down sometimes. When you feel the pressure, the pull, look for a stronghold. Sometimes, it can be found in family pictures, or in remembering accomplishments and goals that you have reached before. Perhaps pray for help from the Lord of strength. You do not have to deal with this pressure alone. Seek out loved ones for support and encoucouragement. Find something that is attainable and get it done. Whatever you do, you do not have to fall under the pressure. Remember David from the Bible and the fight he had with the giant Goliath. He won against that very big “obstacle” and against the pressure of that challenge. He asked God for help, God answered.MwsR

These times can get hard. We can trust and rest in Jesus our God for help and strength. Enduring till we meet in the air. I hope these verses encourage you all. God bless you all.MwsR

There is no secret, that I love cats! If you spend anytime on my webpage, you will definitely see that , for yourself.
So, there is this cat that reminds me a lot of a feline that I, myself, own. They could be twins! The article I read this morning was about this poor cat, who had a birthday celebration, in hopes that she would be seen and adopted. No-one came for this feline’s birthday. Let me tell you, this broke my heart, for some reason. No, I do not know this cat, nor do I live where she is. But if you will help me spread the word about her and share it on social media. Let’s help get this cat a home, for the rest of her life. MwsR

More about MONIQUE
Magnificent Monique is patiently awaiting her forever home at Battersea. Her beauty speaks for itself, but there is more to this unique girl than meets the eye. She has an adorable gentle nature and a lot of affection to give, once she feels safe and settled.
Monique loves spending time with her human friends and enjoys leaping around her pen when they play with her favourite string toy. She also loves a good head and chin rub, and will let you know just how much by purring away in delight!
Monique longs for a home and garden of her own where she can play until her hearts’ content and snooze away on her new family’s warm laps. Monique is looking for an enclosed garden she can access via a cat flap.
Monique has tested positive for the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). FIV is a slow-acting virus and most cats live long, happy and healthy lives. However, in order to protect other cats and to preserve the health of the carrier, Battersea rehomes FIV+ cats to homes with cat proof gardens. Also, due to her FIV+ status, Monique will need to be the only pet in the household.
Don’t worry if your garden isn’t currently “cat-proofed” as we can offer plenty of advice. We’ll also arrange for you to speak to a Battersea vet prior to rehoming.
To find out more please take a look at our ‘Your FIV+ Cat’ information page.

The Alternative Daily’s CEO, Jake Carney, feels his meditation practice, Kelee® meditation, has helped him improve his life. Wouldn’t you love to become a better person too, just by meditating? Well you can, and it’s easy to do.
The best thing about this meditation is, it doesn’t change you into someone you’re not. It helps you to let go of the parts you would like to let go of. It enhances the real you. You know, the good parts — the things you love about yourself — the things that make you, you. Doing this practice gives your thoughts clarity: your thoughts about what to do, and your thoughts about your life. This is something good to know in a world that seems filled with people telling us how we should be, and what we should do. If you could see clearly what is best for you, wouldn’t you do it?
Here are some ways Kelee meditation can help you:
You feel better physically
“When your mind lights up with a good thought, your physical body follows suit.” A quote from the book, The Mind and Self-Reflection by author Ron W. Rathbun.
While surfing, Jake, experienced this firsthand. He’d had “one of those days” at work and was out on the ocean but not “feeling the vibe.” He got a little frustrated, then decided to try and “drop into his mind,” right there on the water. So he dropped into his Kelee and detached from the thoughts bothering him. He waited patiently for the next wave, and it was one of the best rides of his life! Dropping into your greater Kelee, which is an opening to the mind, is not some abstract thought. It’s real, and you can use it to help yourself every day in your life.
You naturally become a better listener
A wise person observes more and talks less. Through this practice brain chatter lessens, and you naturally hear more of what others are saying.
You talk from your heart
Speaking from your heart means never having to apologize for saying something you didn’t mean. When you do Kelee meditation, you naturally speak from your heart, and your whole life gets simpler.
You mind your own business
Have you ever gotten into someone else’s business, then wish you hadn’t. We are responsible for ourselves. This meditation practice focuses you on your thoughts, and your life.
You become less dramatic
“If you make something an issue, it will be. Do you create issues for yourself or others, and why.” When you live from the harmony of mind, you don’t make issues. Being dramatic is really just a waste of everyone’s energy anyway.
You learn to say, “No, thank you”
When you learn to respect yourself more — your thoughts and your feelings — you respect your own space. From The Mind and Self-Reflection, “If you never learn how to say no thank you, people never learn to respect your space. Do you respect your space.”
You let others work out their problems
It doesn’t help to get involved in other people’s problems. Most people don’t want to be told what to do anyway. When you are in mind, you focus on your life. Isn’t that enough?
We recommend doing this meditation. It is a simple, five-minute meditation based on stillness of mind — and you can do it at home. For instructions, download this simple ebook, Kelee Meditation: Free your Mind, and begin becoming a better person today.
