If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

In my email I found this message from Gluten Intolerance Group
There is a petition until May 8th 2012 about putting inert ingredients (gluten sources are of this nature) on medicine labels. Lets give it a 24 hour push!!
GIG group in gov med labels as Celiac bipartisan help from us by,
American Celiac Disease Alliance info@americanceliac.org

Current law does not require the source of inactive ingredients in medication to be identified. Without labeling, patients, pharmacists and prescribers don't know if suspect ingredients contain gluten unless they investigate. Manufacturers may identify the inactive ingredient as "starch," but not say if it is derived from corn, tapioca, or wheat. Websites rarely list the information needed, and phone calls during business hours can result in a days-long wait for an answer. Pharmacists and prescribing healthcare providers of individuals on a medically required gluten-free diet must have immediate access to the source of inactive ingredients. Ready access to this information will ensure patients receive timely care and prevent unnecessary harm.

The Gluten in Medicine Identification Act of 2012 will solve this problem. Identifying the source of inactive ingredients in drug products will give the consumer, pharmacist and prescriber the information needed to make an informed choice. Industry can support it as it does not impose a financial burden on the manufacturer. All of the national celiac organizations endorse this bill: American Celiac Disease Alliance, Celiac Disease Foundation, Celiac Sprue Association, Gluten Intolerance Group and the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness.

In which I added
This registered voter also says…

I am handicapped and adrenal damaged requiring my little Doctor prescribed gluten-free world. It becomes necessary to take pharmaceutical essentials and some non-essential supplements to avoid infections. This medical protocol is successful with the avoidance of gluten in any form. This bill will assist in seeing gluten sources which have been proven to cause shock and help me live with better food and medicine safety. I can avoid a hospital when I can avoid the pain/inflammation causing ingredients in all medicines, foods, skin care, and cleaning and body cleansing products so marked.

Please support this cause. You may want to put yourself on a mailing list for future petition actions to support this gluten-free lifestyle.

The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;
