Do Not Linger

If you spend a long time on things that happened in the past you are lingering in the past and never will be able to move forward with your life. Remember the past is the past and live for the future. Think of a hobby you could pursue or a good cause that you could support.

If you linger about buying a car or a new home you might miss out on your dream home or car. People that do not linger get a lot done in one day. God does not linger for he is always watching over each and everyone of us everyday of our lives.

Do not over think things as you will stay in place longer than necessary because of a reluctance to leave. Lingering around robs you of positive time in your life. I tend not to linger long in one place as I always have a lot of things that I want to get done in one day. I purchased a home in one hour from start to finish and I never regretted it. If I would have lingered on purchasing the home someone else would have purchased the house.

Do not wait for the perfect time to do things that are absolutely necessary. Pay your bills quickly as you might misplace the bill and have to pay a penalty also. Travel while you can because life can throw you a curve ball no matter what age you are.

Do not stagnate and get to comfortable in life. See what you can do today to make a positive and lasting difference in your life and the lives of others. Do not linger on your dreams for your life as your life keeps moving forward even though you are not. Do not linger as you will accomplish much that will please God and those you love.

Sing Praises To God Everyday

When things are moving along fine in are lives we seem to take it for granted. God is always our guide if we listen to him. We tend to pray more when we are in the hallows and shallows of our life. God wants us to thank him everyday in our lives. God will never leave your side when you are in pain or suffering. God knew us even before we were born and he knows what we will do on earth and what we will be like in heaven.

Let God always be your compass in life and you will never be lost as he will be guiding your every step in life. God knows what you are thinking about every waking moment in your life. Do not let possessions control you or own you. God is the one that has provided all of your possessions while you are on earth. You do not own or have possessions of your own for God has provided them to use while you are on earth. We come into this world with nothing and we leave with nothing except knowing that Gods kingdom is open for whoever believes in him.

Sing praises to God on a daily basis. Without God none of us would be on earth. Thank God  for the food , clothes, and much more that he has provided for you. Praise God for your family and friends and the animals, trees and all of natures bounty and beauty.

I find great comfort in knowing God is always by my side through thick and thin. Without God in our lives we would not be the people that we are today. God has always protected me and comforted me in the best of times and the very worst of times. God is my pilot and my ultimate guide in life. Thank you God for I am truly blessed today and always with you by my side guiding me to do the best that I can possibly do while I am on earth and until we meet again.

The Courthouse located in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia

We had a tour of the Courthouse in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. Our guide explained every detail on how the Courtroom proceedings were handled years ago.

Crimes varied from thefts to horse stealing and fights that got out of control. Some people that stayed in an inn did not pay their bill so the inn keeper took them to court. Stronger offenses were handled in a different court.

You would be judged by a jury of your peers and they would meet in  a private room in  the courthouse until their decision was reached. There was also a private room for the judge and lawyers to to meet in. The judge would hand down the sentence which could be very severe. You could be hung, branded for life or put in the stockade,etc. Your ears would be nailed to boards on the stockade. They would cut your ears open to remove the nails from your ears once your sentence was served out in full. If you were lucky you could work off your debt to society and not be scared for life.

The reason why we say pass the bar exam for future lawyers. The bar was the bar in front or the gate that opened in the front of the courtroom. The judge, lawyers, and jury would sit in that area. The people watching or the general public would sit back of the bar. So when you pass your bar exam you are a lawyer that has earned the right to sit up in front of the bar with the judge, other lawyers and jury.

On court days, lots of people would gather around the courthouse to participate in public  affairs within their community. George Washington had been in the original courthouse in Williamsburg, Virginia to watch a trial.

What Does United Stand For ?

United means unified, integrated, joined, merged, common purpose, common feelings, joint activity and multiple nations. The United States is a blend of joined and merged people from other countries that settled here for a common purpose. People wanted to leave the country they came from to better themselves and their family. The immigrant  may have been born last in the family and did not inherit the family farm so they settled in the USA as it was known as the land of plenty. America means freedom for all.

Unity means the state of being united or joined as a whole. Unity holds us together for a common cause. The United States of America has a blending of people all over the world that have merged and are united or joined as a whole. Every person wants the opportunity to succeed in life and prosper from their hard work which is impossible to do in some countries.

A united church means that people come together for the common practice of worship and they are joined together in worship. A united church has many people that get together to help others in this country and other countries around the world. Without unity a church could not survive. When you are united you have a large family of like minded people that can accomplish much because they all have the same common purpose to worship God and be his good stewards. The old saying goes  “united we stand and divided we fall ”  and that statement applies today and always. Without a united front not much gets accomplished.

Unity will always tie and bind us together so we can reach our dreams and help others reach their dreams also. Unify yourself with people in your church and community and you will be surprised what you can accomplish and get done for a better and improved tomorrow.

Automatic Pet Feeders

I purchased three automatic pet feeders on my own. All thoughts are 100 % honest and my own.

When you are going away on a two day or five day trip or longer with some feeders you can be rest assured your cat will receive his food in a timely manner. The pet feeders have a timer that dispenses the food at the times you entered. My cats caught onto the time that the food got dispensed in a short amount of time.

I first purchased the Pet Safe 5 meal feeder. Each of the five sections hold one cup of food. A fresh meal is available in the first tray immediately , then it will rotate around four more times. The food tray is dishwasher safe. It takes 4 D batteries to run it. It was very easy to set up and my cats love to eat out of it. The Pet Safe automatic feeder has a one year warranty. Pet Safe has an office in Tennessee. Chewy.Com sells the Pet Safe 5 Meal Pet Feeder.

I also purchased a Paws and Pals Large Automatic cat feeder. It holds five pounds of food with an anti – jam dispensing system. An auger dispensers the cat food into a bowl attached to the side of it that can be removed for cleaning. You can record 3 messages on it so your cat can hear your voice while you are gone. Hearing your voice can stimulate your cat into eating better while you are away. The Paws and Pals automatic feeder was easy to set up and it uses 4 D batteries to operate. The feeder is 100 % washable. My cats next door love to eat out of their new automatic pet feeder.

I purchased a Cat Mat C50  Automatic Pet Feeder which is very easy to set the times you want your cat fed. It has an old fashioned style timer that you move to your desired time settings. My cats love eating out of it and it is very quiet. It uses one triple a battery to operate it. It has two ice packs to keep your cats food fresh.

If you are on the go a lot your cats will love you for buying them an automatic pet feeder.

Kindness

A little kindness goes along way in making the world a little brighter for other people. It is easy to be kind to people by complimenting them on a job that showed they took pride in  their work. Be considerate of others peoples feelings. Put yourself in the other persons shoes.

Kind gestures such as a smile, holding a door open, caring someones groceries, visiting with them and much more shows people that you care and appreciate them. Paying it forward is a wonderful and very rewarding act of kindness. Give to charities that you support that help uplift people year around. Some charities provide housing, clothes, heat, toys and food and much more that help people that are in need due to situations that are out of their control. A family that lost their job, a sick child in the family, a work accident and more truly need wonderful acts of kindness and help.

Be kind to a person that is made fun of as the next person that is made fun of might be you. God is always kind, caring and forgiving as we are Gods children here on earth and in heaven. Show kindness to all of Gods creatures. If you see an animal in pain try to help it by calling a vet, police, humane society or the sheriffs office that can help the poor animal to be out of misery.

Kindness shows in your actions and how you relate to other people. When you are sick you need to surround yourself with truly kind and outstanding people. There is no excuse whatsoever to not be kind to people that are suffering, sick, in pain, the very young, elderly and all of Gods creatures great and small. Kindness is what life is all about as it makes life bearable and meaningful and shows people that you love them. God loves each and everyone of us equally as we are all his children.

Market Square in Colonial Williamsburg, Virgina

I loved looking at and seeing the old stores that they had at the time of George Washington. The people in the stores were dressed in the attire of years ago. All of their talks and demonstrations were very informative of how people made a living in Colonial times.

We had a tour of the Barber and Peruke Maker. Peruke means “artificial head of hair ” in the French language. Wigs were popular for men in the 17th and 18th centuries. They would shave off all of your natural hair and then they would fit you for a wig. Very few women had a wig because they did not want their hair shaved off. Wigs were very expensive and only the upper 5 % could afford to buy one. A wig such as George Washington’s took over 100 hours to make. Wigs were made from Yak, horse, goat and human hair.

We had a tour of the Apothecary or Drug Store. The original brown containers from the 1700’s that held the different compounds were in the store. All of the stores were very dark inside since they depended on candle light for light. Medicine was rolled in licorice root to give it a better taste. The different compounds were mixed together for your particular medicine.

The dressmaker spent 100 hours making a wedding dress as it was very labor intensive. A politicians suit with vest and all the lining took the tailor 100 hours to make. Corsets could take 50 hours or more to make.

The  cabinet maker made cupboards, doors, and window frames for your home. He had every kind of wood plane that you could imagine for the different shapes and cuts to decorate the trim with. He also made wooden benches for outdoor use.

The shoemaker used leather from cattle and goats to make your shoes. Goat leather was used in the more expensive shoes as it is very soft and subtle. A pair of boots like George Washington wore took one half a years wages that most people got paid. Excellent quality shoes took 8 hours to make. Slip on slippers took 3 hours to make.

We went to the silversmith shop. They still make jewelry today that is stamped Colonial Williamsburg. I purchased a sterling silver cross of Lorraine. They sell candle sticks, rings, necklaces, ear rings and much more.

We had a tour from the Weaver. He told us it took all day to weave 13 yards of fabric. In Colonial days he would start out as an apprentice. He would have the apprenticeship for five years with no wages but he would get room and board. When the apprenticeship was finished he would be a journeyman. If he could save up a half years wages he could buy a loom and start his own shop.

We watched the Printer and Bindery man putting leather on a book. He said you had to be very careful shaving the leather so you would not put a hole in it and have to start over. He used cowhide to cover the books. He had to heat various irons for different patterns on the leather. If you heated the iron too hot you would burn the leather. You could not rest because if you stopped the pattern would be off and the leather cover would look terrible. The very wealthy would have gold gilded leather covers put on their books.

History truly came to life on Market Square in Colonial Williamsburg, Virgina.

Being Content In Life

Being content in life is accepting your life as it is. Sometimes it takes a near death experience for you to be content in life. Being close to God, friends and family is wonderful as they can all help you along lives bumps in the road.

I had been in the same business for years. I liked what I did at that time in my life. I now enjoy being a lay minister at my church and reaching out to people and listening to them tell me their lives stories. I write #inspirationswithlaura on my website. I feel that I am finally doing what God has called upon me to do and their is no better contentment then that in your life.

Always be on the lookout for what God wants you to do with your life. You will find subtle signs in what God is calling on you to accomplish with your life. Sometimes if you are lack you will miss the first signs so always keep on the alert for God is calling upon all of us to accomplish certain and helpful missions with our life that will benefit and enrich the lives of many.

Visit with your elders often as you will learn many of lives valuable lessons from them. We all learn a lot of useful and valuable lessons throughout the years. Treat your elders with the upmost respect and remember you will be old much quicker than you think. Do not hurt, harm or injure the old or the young or anyone. We all have feelings and we all suffer from pain. Never add to someones suffering or pain and try to help to relieve them from suffering or pain. Make sure they get their necessary medicine on time and re position them gently in bed if they can no longer turn over on their own anymore. The young and the old should not lay around in wet diapers or clothing. Remember the Golden Rule and keep it close to your heart and you will treat people with the upmost respect.

I am happy and content in my life and I hope and pray that you are too.
