THE BEST MEDICINE IS LOVE
A country doctor said, I've been practicing medicine for over 30 years. During all those years I have prescribed many different things. But in the long run, I've learned that for most of what ails the human condition, the best medicine is love!”
“But, asked a student, what if it does not work?”
“Double the dose, came the quick reply.
Many have said that love is the greatest medicine in the world. It can do more to heal the sick than most medicines. It is holding someone's hand, shedding a tear with a broken heart, sitting quietly beside someone who is grieving.
Love is not an emotion that is based on a passing feeling. It comes from a compassionate heart that has experienced the conversion that God has provided for us through His Son. Love is something that is born of God and given by God.
Love is a gift. Take it and let it grow.
Love is a sign. Wear it and let it show.
Love is an act. Do it and let it go.
As we now come into the most scared of all Holidays, the Birth of our Saviour. Let us all take time
to acknowledge the love and peace in our lives and show the world we do have the gift of Love and Compassion.
Let it Show in Every Thing You Do This Holiday and All Year Long.
Father, we pray you fill our hearts, with Your love. May we overcome selfishness by living lives of service as Your Son, our Savior did. In His name. Amen.
Scripture for Today: 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

As most of you know my Grandson Phillip has ASPERGER"S SYNDROME.
Now the problem is not many people know what this is; I know when he was first diagnosed I was completely in the dark.
But with all challenges the Lord hands me, I accepted this challenge straight on and started doing my research.
I am still learning and my main focus now is trying, not only to help Phillip, but to try to educate others and myself on how to help these exceptional intelligent people to use their knowledge to survive among us.
Our world seems almost black and white to them. Their thinking is so vivid, they conceive things so literally. I am amazed at the things I have already learned and I have not even covered the main basics yet.
I am in awe at the amount of children and adults that are misdiagnosed with AHDH or other symptoms that are so similar to Asperger's. This leaves these children and adults searching for answers, usually not found unless the proper diagnoses is made.
So often I hear I don't want my child to have Asperger's...It is a form of Autism. Well let me tell you my feelings on this...I am thankful my Grandson has Asperger's Syndrome! This has given me the road map I need to guide him in the direction to succeed in life. Also I am so grateful he is healthy.
We just received his 9 weeks report card from school and he made the A-B HONOR ROLE! So we must be doing something right!
We as parents and grandparents only want the best for our children. Now I have the tools I need to make life better for my child.
Here is some information I have found...Hope this helps you understand some of the basics of Asperger's Syndrome.
THANK GOD I'M A FARM GIRL!
Asperger's syndrome, also called Asperger's disorder, is a type of pervasive development disorder (PDD). PDDs are a group of conditions that involve delays in the development of many basic skills, most notably the ability to socialize with others, to communicate, and to use imagination.
Although Asperger's syndrome is similar in some ways to autism -- another, more severe type of PDD -- there are some important differences. Children with Asperger's syndrome typically function better than do those with autism. In addition, children with Asperger's syndrome generally have normal intelligence and near-normal language development, although they may develop problems communicating as they get older.
Asperger's syndrome was named for the Austrian doctor, Hans Asperger, who first described the disorder in 1944. However, Asperger's syndrome was not recognized as a unique disorder until much later.
What Are the Symptoms of Asperger's Syndrome?
The symptoms of Asperger's syndrome vary and can range from mild to severe. Common symptoms include:
Problems with social skills:
Eccentric or repetitive behaviors:
Unusual preoccupations or rituals:
Limited range of interests:
Skilled or talented:
How Common Is Asperger's Syndrome?
Asperger's syndrome has only recently been recognized as a unique disorder. For that reason, the exact number of people with the disorder is unknown, although it is more common than autism. Estimates suggest Asperger's syndrome affects from 0.024% to 0.36% of children. It is more common in males than in females, and usually is first diagnosed in children between the ages of 2 and 6 years.
How Is Asperger's Syndrome Treated?
There currently is no cure for Asperger's syndrome, but treatment may improve functioning and reduce undesirable behaviors. Treatment may include a combination of the following:
Speech, physical, or occupational therapy:
Medication : There are no medications to treat Asperger's syndrome itself,
Can Asperger's Syndrome Be Prevented?
Asperger's syndrome cannot be prevented or cured. However, early diagnosis and treatment can improve function and quality of life.

As Halloween creeps it's way closer to our doorways this holiday season remember to keep our children safe and healthy.
With all the candy allergies kids have and kids with braces or other dental issues, sugar problems etc., how do you think those kids deal with looking at candy they love but can't eat? So, why not give the kids in your neighborhood a fun, "no candy" trick or treat!
Pass the word around to the rest of the families in the neighborhood and give a shot to a safe and fun Halloween Trick or Treat night!
You ask, "I am giving to a large number of trick or treaters and one bag of candy handles a lot of kids, so how do I have as much of something non-candy?" Here's some suggestions.
( Those big bags of candy cost $5- $9 a bag. How many bags does it take on Halloween night?)
CHECK OUT YOUR LOCAL DOLLAR STORES FOR AMAZING DEALS!
1. Party Favors. Look in the party section of the local discount store or dollar store. Those plastic jewelry items, chalks, little hand-held games, crayon sets, bubble blower things and so much more! Buy a few of those, and you have a lot!
2. Grain style snack bars or Fruit snacks! No chocolate, no candy and less sugar! These are healthy and low sugar and most kids love them as much as candy anyway!
3. School and craft supplies: So many stores now have a $1 Isle - pick up a package of pencil erasers, pens/pencils, tablets, stickers, magnets and other school or craft supplies. Every kid can use a pencil and a Halloween print pencil is so much fun! And stickers...what kid doesn't love stickers!
4. Accessories - these are more for the little girls, but hair accessories - barrettes, pony tail bands, head bands and such are a great treat!
5. Hot cereals - Oatmeal, Cream of Wheat - each box holds 8-10 individual packets of this healthy cereal - and they are sealed closed. These days, they come in fun packages with characters on the front, little games on the back and perfect for breakfast the next morning!
6. Packets of hot chocolate: Again, one box hold 8-10 packets. Some even come with mini marshmallows in them! Perfect for a bed time snack as they sort their Halloween treasures!
7. Juice box/bag drinks. Buy a large, economy size case of box/bag juice drinks- the kind with the attached straw. A great treat and will be loved by all that gets them!
8. Mini bottle of water! You can buy little 6-8oz size of bottled water in a case - something like $4.00 for 24 bottles. The perfect treat for the "melt-down" after that long walk!
9. Small boxes of raisins or other dried fruits, snack packs of crackers with cheese or peanut butter, 100-calorie packets of popcorn, a small packet of pretzels all make healthy alternatives to candy.
10. Pudding or jello packs also make nice alternatives to candy when your trick or treat callers ring your doorbell.
11. Kids love getting the cereal that comes in small boxes, too, or pull-apart cheese sticks as an alternative to candy. For those old enough to have it, sugar-free bubble gum goes over well, too.
Going through this list of alternatives to candy for your Halloween trick or treat visitors is bound to trigger creative ideas of your own. None of the fun will be lost in the interest of introducing healthier treats on this night of fun and laughter when you put your mind to it!
