Motivation

What motivates you in life ?  I like to plan out my days or go with things on the spur of the moment. If I have a task that I want to finish I will stick with it until I have my task completed. I never want to start a job and then quit halfway through the job.  I like to stain decks and paint buildings as it gives me a great sense of accomplishment to see the finished project.

I have always enjoyed writing. Writing motivates me everyday as I can share my knowledge and experiences with others. I love to read history books and I try to read 30 to 100 pages a day in my book. I am motivated to learn something new everyday of my life. I enjoy life long learning classes as we are never to old to learn new and interesting subject matter.

I enjoy being a Lay Minister with my local church. I have learned a lot about spreading Gods good works. I enjoy visiting with people and trying to make their day brighter and better in any way that I can with Gods help. I am very motivated and rejuvenated when I am spreading Gods good works.

My cats are my feline friends that I love to take care of and nurture everyday. My cats are always there for me also. They will lay by my side when I don’t feel well. My cats purr away contentedly when I pat them on the head or scratch them under their chin. Life would not be the same without wonderful pets in the world.

Good friends motivate me to do great things in life. A good friend can always make the dark days bright and wonderful again. Friends are the greatest gift in all that they do to help us when we are in dire need. Without friends a person would be truly lost in life’s journey. God bless all of our wonderful and outstanding friends. A friend always gets you and knows where you are coming from and where you want to go.

Travelling motivates me to discover new places and new beauty around the world. Wherever we are from in the world we all strive for the same things in life. I loved visiting the countries that my ancestors came from and the fact that I was able to walk on the same paths that they had in their lifetime.

Mowing lawn and gardening motivate me as I love the great outdoors and all that nature has to offer. Stay motivated in your life and always make time for friends and God.

Where Should I Travel ?

What kind of places do you want to see in your lifetime ?  If there is a certain place in a movie that you liked you could consider traveling to that location. I wanted to see all of the countries where my ancestors came from. I found it very  interesting walking around Amsterdam and looking at the same exact buildings that my ancestors passed by when they lived there in the 1600 ‘ s.

I love mountains and therefor I love to travel in Colorado and Switzerland. I love looking at the flatirons in Boulder , Colorado. I love the majestic mountains in Switzerland. I especially love the little village of Giswel ,  Switzerland. The cows wake up early in the morning and you can hear the cow bells on their necks ringing as they walk to the farmers barn to be milked. There is a nice old church at the top of the hill in the village of Giswel , Switzerland that seems to have stood still in time. The sheep in Giswel are very friendly and I fed one of them a little snack. I love traveling to places that have withstood the test of time and are still very appealing to all of my senses.20150825_054109

I love reading history books so I love traveling to places that have a lot of history tied to them. I saw Pearl Harbor , war memorials, Auschwitz , Anne Frank’s House and much more. The things you have read about in history books come to life and you have a richer understanding of the sacrifices that the people went through. People have endured horrific ordeals over the years that no one should have to ever have to go through. It was very heart wrenching to see Auschwitz and Anne Frank’s House.

20150830_072601

Travel while you can your health is a gift not a given. Enjoy traveling around the World and you will appreciate it much more and you will have enriched your knowledge of  the World and the people in it  and you will have broadened your horizons.

Nulo Freestyle Turkey & Chicken Canned Cat Food from Chewy.Com

I was provided Nulo Freestyle Turkey & Chicken Canned Cat Food from Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

I first feed Nulo to my outdoor cats. Maggie loved the texture of her canned cat food as it is soft and easy  for any cat to swallow. Maggie gulped down large chunks of Nulo canned cat food from Chewy.Com. I gave some to Maggie’s sister and she seemed delighted with the Nulo Freestyle canned cat food from Chewy.Com.

The next day I gave Maggie and her sister more Nulo and they ate it up with lightening speed.

I feed my cats in the other house some more Nulo Freestyle Turkey & Chicken Canned Cat Food from Chewy.Com. Cali ate up a large amount of Nulo. Russ, Mr. Gray, Hilford, and Bella ate their portion of Nulo with a lot of  gusto and vigor. Bella purrs and growls the whole time she eats her canned cat food. Sherlock came out of hiding along with Nicole and finished up what little was left. Addi still wants to let her fully grown kittens eat up their food before she has any for herself. Addi licks out the canned cat food containers and leaves them sparkling clean.

Conrad My 8 to 5 Cat

I was supposed to have Conrad at my vet by 8:30 AM. I tried to catch Conrad at 7:30 AM and he was nowhere to be found. I caught Kohl at 7:45 AM as he needed a distemper shot also. I went to my other house and caught Bella and Cali immediately.

I started looking for Conrad again. I went upstairs and to the basement and I could not find Conrad anywhere. I looked back of furniture and under furniture and on top of the furniture and still no Conrad to be seen.Conrad

I took the three cats I was able to catch to my vet for their shots. I told him I could not find Conrad. I tried to locate Conrad when I got home and he was still nowhere to be seen. Kohl sat on my lap after we got home from the vet. I read a history book for a while and then I looked for Conrad again it was 1:30 PM by now. I picked up a few items in town. I visited some people in the Rest Home.

I went outside and got some of my yard equipment ready to go. I cleaned out my cat litter boxes for the second time. I tilled my garden and I planted some seed potatoes. I came back in the house and looked for Conrad again and could not find him anywhere and it was 4 PM by now.

At exactly 5 PM Conrad appeared out of the blue and he looked at me like what are you going to do now lady the vets office is closed for the day. I swear Conrad can tell time somehow and he is truly my 8 to 5 cat.

Conrad by jewelry box

We will be going to the vet next week and Conrad will have a surprise I will catch him at 6 AM. I  will store the cage in the room where I will be catching him three days ahead of our vet appointment. I hope you and your cat are on time for your next vet appointment.

I caught Conrad this morning after he complained to me and hid under my bed for awhile. He hid back of a card table and I was able to grab him my the nap of his neck and put him in my cat carrier. I called my vet and we got right in. Conrad got his distemper shot and his worm medicine. Conrad decided his visit to the vet was not that bad after all. Conrad rode in the front of my vehicle were he could keep an eye on me while I drove. Conrad said the visit to the vet was worth all of his trouble in long run as it will keep him in excellent health hopefully.

Easter

Zechariah   11 : 12 – 13

And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.

And the Lord said unto me, cast it unto the potter : a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver and cast them to the potter in the house of the lord.

12 : 10 – 11

And I will pour upon the house of David, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications : and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.

Acts 12 : 3

And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. [ Then were the days of unleavened bread.]

As we have learned from the teachings of the Bible God so loved the World that he gave his only begotten son so that who ever believeth in him shall not perish but shall everlasting life and dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Jesus suffered terribly on the Cross for all of our sins. Jesus sacrificed himself to save all of us from death. All that believe in the Lord shall not perish but have eternal life. There are many rooms in heaven and all of us that believe in the Lord shall live with the Lord in one of the many rooms that he has prepared for us.

Easter is about sacrifice and love that is so great and overpowering that we can hardly imagine giving one of our beloved children to save the lives of everyone in the World that believes in God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Gods love of man transcends down through the ages.

20151027_142913

We often think of a sacrifice that we have made in our life but all of our sacrifices fall way short of the sacrifice God made to save us from death and give us life everlasting. Jesus said forgive them they know not what they do when he was being put on the cross. How many of us would forgive our executioner.

20150831_072830

On the third day Jesus rose from the grave. He has risen He has risen indeed. We will have eternal life in the house of the Lord because Jesus died for our many sins. On Easter Sunday I go to church and think of the sacrifice God made to save all of us who believe in him. I hope all of you will go to church on Easter Sunday and reflect on the the sacrifice that was made to save us from all of our sins that we may dwell in the house of the lord forever. Christ has risen. Christ has risen indeed. Grace, Love, Peace, Faith, Joy and Hope be with you today and always. Have a happy and blessed Easter Sunday. Remember God loves all of us.

I was provided Fancy Feast Classic Poultry & Beef Variety Pack Canned Cat Food from Chewy.Com to facilitate my review. All thoughts are 100% honest and my own.

Russ in an Outdoor Playpen

Years ago I had a Siamese house cat by the name of Ginger. Ginger lived to be 18 years old. Ginger liked Fancy Feast so much that all I had to do is call out the words Fancy Feast and she would come running to get her Fancy Feast that she loved so much. Ginger could be sound to to sleep but if I said Fancy Feast she came immediately.

I gave some Fancy Feast to my outdoors cats. Maggie and her sister gulped down large chunks of the Fancy Feast as one did not want to be outdone by the other one.

20170311_073139

Fancy Feast is manufactured in the USA by the Nestle Purina Pet Care Company in St. Louis, MO. There are a lot of vitamins and minerals in Fancy Feast.

Bella would not let any of the other cats even get close to her as she ate away diligently at her Fancy Feast canned cat food. Russ, Mr. Gray, and Hilford ate a large portion of the Fancy Feast Canned Cat Food from Chewy.Com. Cali smelled the Fancy Feast and got right to work on eating her fare share of it. Faith, Nicole and Addi came along late but there was a little bit left for them to enjoy.

Impossible Is Not In My Vocabulary

2   Corinthians  1 : 18 – 20

But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea or nay.

For Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached amoung you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea or nay, but in him was yea

For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

I always try to make the impossible possible. If someone tells me it is not possible to accomplish a goal I have set for myself I am more than determined to prove them absolutely wrong. Anything is possible with willpower and determination and an absolute drive to make your mission attainable.

peace memorial

Someone once told me I would not win a prize at the fair. You had to tell a farmer how to contour his land on his farm for the proper drainage for his crops. I told the farmer the exact contour for his farms land and won the prize. The prize outcome was about listening to the description of the land and finding a quick fix to fix wet crop land for optimal return on your investment compared to your input to fix the problem.

20150830_072601

Impossible does have some limitations depending on your health. Always keep your eye on the prize and if you want it bad enough make it happen. It takes a lot of patience and practice and persistence to make the impossible possible. If you want to accomplish things in life do not be afraid to ask for help and advice as this is how you learn to make the impossible possible.

Draw out a plan of what you want to get done and stick with it. Even small accomplishments each and everyday can ad up to big rewards in your life. Fixing and remodeling can sometimes seem unattainable until you start noticing the wonderful makeover of your home as time progresses. Your home can look like the magnificent home that is was originally.

Persistence and keeping your eye on the prize and pure determination is the key to making the impossible possible in your life.

What Our Pets Can Do For Us

Your child will learn to care for and nurture one of Gods beautiful creatures. Your children will  learn how to be responsible when they care for a pet. Children will learn that their pet relies on them for comfort and nourishment. Your pet will love your child unconditionally.

20150430_180745

Pets are good companions as they  can turn an unpleasant day into a comfortable day. A cat will purr away on your lap and snuggle up close to you. Birds will sing delightful songs to you that will brighten your day. A dog will look at you through their kind and loving eyes as if to say tomorrow will be a much better day for you my friend. A Guinea pig will make their little calling sound to you when you come home from work or school. Gerbils will entertain you as they spin around on their exercise wheel in their cage. I find fish very relaxing to watch as they swim back and forth in their aquarium. I had a pet goat that was very kind and loving, he would greet me in the morning with a soft and gentle bah.

My cats sleep on my bed at night and snuggle up close to me and when I pat them on their head they purr and purr away which I find very comforting and relaxing. When you do not feel good a cat will rest on your lap or lay down next to you. Cats are very good little care givers. Cats keep any rodents out of your home. Dogs bark and scare away unwanted visitors or other wild animals.

20170311_072932

Pets lower our blood pressure and put us in a better frame of mind. Pets make our lives less lonely as they are awesome company. Children that our mean to pets or harm them will grow up to treat people the same way that they have treated their pets. Parents watch your children interact with pets as you will learn a lot about your child’s behavior.

Kohl profile

I hope you and your pets form a strong and lasting bond and that you learn valuable lessons from each other that will help you along life’s many journeys. God Bless you and your pets.

20160104_145141

 

My outdoor cat Maggie was sitting outside and looking at me through the window. I placed an opened package of wild cuts duck snack for cats on the cement for her to eat.
