The top of the day to you,
Well the Holiday Season sort of crept up on me and got me a little behind on my weekly message this week. But I felt it would be good to share with you the real Wonders of the World and that is YOU!
Of all the living creatures on this planet, not 1 in 10 million are human beings. Not 1 in 10 million are human beings. And you are one. You are a biological rarity and are very important in the eyes of our creator – a RARE GEM! And you are living in the most opportune time in the history of the world! It's our best chance to be mega rich.
In Brooklyn there is a hospital where people wait the rest of their lives waiting for a donor transplant. They actually have to wait for someone to die so they can live. They're called the “POLE PEOPLE” where they walk around all day long carrying a pole of medicine bags with several needles from those bags going into their bodies. To walk around the floor 7 times is their goal and you should see the horrible state of health they're in. It would make your hair cringe. I was watching a program on that 2 nights ago and I had to stop and give thanks for my reasonable state of normalcy. When we get down on ourselves for whatever reason, we can rest assured that there are millions and millions of folks who are a whole lot worse off then we are.
A normal bladder has 10,000 gallons of fluid going through it in a lifetime.
Your ears have 24,500 fibers in each ear just to hear the sound
Your lungs have 600 million air pockets just to take the air into the blood stream.
The outer Layers of the skin are renewed every 2-4 weeks.
We have over 60,000 miles of Blood Vessels in the body to keep us working… that's about 2 ˝ times around the Globe and pumping enough blood in your entire lifetime to fill a freight train 25 miles long. WOOW, That's a boy howdy if I ever heard one.
Your fingernails grow at about the same rate that the Atlantic Ocean is widening. Dadgum.
Did you know that if all the electronic energy in the hydrogen atoms of your body could be used that you could supply all the electrical needs of a large industrialized country for almost an entire week? Talk to me, Baby. Are you there Rick Ernst?
The atoms of your body contain a potential energy of more than 11 million kilowatts per pound…that means that an average person by this estimate is worth more than $85 million dollars. Phooey on that person who told us that we were only worth $1.06 some years back.
And all the atoms of your body sing ... that if you could tune into them, you would hear a perfect harmony.
In so many words, there's more to you than meets the eye and there's no one else like you on the earth or has ever been like you. YOU ARE TRULY UNIQUE!
If all the cell information and the configuration of the components were illustrated in one document, it would take 5 million pages just to print out the complex genetic code of just one single cell. Man oh man. I'm talkin'!
Did you ever consider how perfectly your body is timed and controlled? How it maintains a normal temperature of 98.6 degrees? How the blood pressure is properly regulated and why you breathe an average of 16 times a minute and your heart beats 72 times a minute? How common food is digested chemically and the nutritive part is transformed into body tissue – bone and muscle; blood and skin; hair and nails – and properly distributed while wastes and poisons are eliminated with no ill effect?
You are special with an unnegotiable self-worth … you're a champ, not a chump... Sure we are experiencing challenging times, but we must go on and continue to try and make a positive difference.
I was reading someone about a year ago where a group of Geography students studied the Seven Wonders of the World. At the end of that section, the students were asked to list what they considered to be the Seven Wonders of the World. Though there was some disagreement, the following got the most votes.
- Egypt's Great Pyramids
- Taj Mahal
- Grand Canyon
- Panama Canal
- Empire State Building
- St. Peter's Basilica
- China's Great Wall
While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student, a quiet girl, hadn't turned in her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. The quiet girl replied, "Yes, a little. I couldn't quite make up my mind because there were so many."
The teacher said, "Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help." The girl hesitated, then read, "I think the Seven Wonders of the World are:
- to touch,
- to taste,
- to see,
- to hear,
- to smell"
She hesitated a little, "and then
- to laugh,
- and to love."
It is far too easy for us to look at the exploits of man and refer to them as "wonders" while we overlook all what our creator has done, regarding them as merely "ordinary."
May you be reminded today of those things which are truly wondrous … YOU! And all you have to do is “eat good stuff and you'll always be tough.”
All my best to you.

PS Some final thoughts:
I feel I would be totally remiss if I didn't share this with you this week as this will blow you away and we only have about 2-3 weeks left before they're all gone. I have some very good friends over in Crescent City where I've been buying my ORGANIC Fruit from for over 30 years and this is the first year they've been able to sell MERCOTT Oranges. They are truly my very favorite of the over 30 varieties I get each year. When you get them, you will probably call me and ask what did they sweeten them up with, as they are almost too sweet. Pure Honey doesn't have anything on them at all. If you get a bushel and you don't think they're the very best you've ever had, let me know and I will pray for you.
Rod & Mary Mitchell 386-698-2484. Let them know I mentioned them to you and that will open a door for you. I don't get any kick back from it but it's just too doggone good to pass up and they will be gone before April 20th for sure. This will help to feed the Wonderful You as they are truly the very very best. And best of all, they're reasonable as the dickens.
Oh by the way, there was a surf contest at the bottom of my street Saturday and Sunday and I took about one half bushel down as I knew all the judges and a lot of the contestants. I gave just one of them away and within 5 minutes I was inundated with people wanting to try one. And the fun of it all was I got to fillet them all and a lot of the surfers had their little babies in their arms and I encouraged them to just touch the Mercott Orange to the baby's lips and you would have been in stitches as to how that baby dominated the scene wanting more of them.
I laughed the whole time I was there thinking that wouldn't it be something to put a baby in a crib with a rabbit and a peach and if that baby ate that rabbit and petted that peach….well I'd buy you anything you want if the baby did that. He would just naturally pet the rabbit and eat the peach. Fruit is so nourishing for you and is something everyone I have ever met just normally loves right off the bat. Enjoy and I welcome your impute. You have made a real difference in my life with the tremendous feedback I get back from so many folks who read this each week. THANKS A MILLION!
