Subject: [NecessaryDissent] SPIT IT OUT

By: Joseph J. Mazzella
My daughter Beth has always been one of the wisest people that I
have ever known. Even as a baby this wisdom was apparent. I can
remember when I first tried to get her to eat green beans from a
baby food jar. With the first spoonful she made a terrible face.
When I tried to give her a second spoonful she spit it out instantly
and it ran down her bib turning it an ugly shade of green. I then
foolishly tried to give her a third spoonful. This one she spit out
with such force that it landed on both my face and my shirt. When
Beth saw what she had done she let out a delighted giggle and I had
to smile myself as I wiped off my face. Later wondering how bad
those green beans actually were I took a bite of them myself. Never
in my entire life had anything tasted quite so nasty as they did.
Unlike that wise baby, though, many of us continue to take in nasty
things everyday of our lives. We hear terrible things said about
ourselves and others. We read words filled with hate and prejudice.
We see acts of violence and meanness everywhere we go. Instead of
spitting them out and refusing to let them dwell in our hearts,
souls, and minds, however, we hold them inside of us, digest them,
and allow them to become a part of us. In the end we even become
more like these things ourselves. We are what we eat, after all.
Don't allow yourself to keep eating and digesting the fear, anger,
and hate that this world so often tries to feed you. Spit it out.
Refuse to take another bite. And then like a happy Child of God
return laughter, love, and joy for it instead. God loves you and
prepares you a meal of kindness, goodness, laughter, smiles, love,
joy, and oneness with Him everyday. Why eat something nasty when you
can delight in this feast and share it with the whole world instead?

Computer Info ...wonderful

 In case you didn't know this ,, It works,    try it on this paragraph your reading below. I can't believe I did not know this. I have been using a magnifying glass    Computer Info ...wonderful  

     I just found this out and thought I'd pass  this on. It's very useful when
trying to read small print (especially in the  early hours). If you hold
down the Ctrl key on your key board and then turn the  small wheel in the
middle of your mouse away from you or towards you, the print size will
change - it will either get larger or smaller - depending on which way you
turn the wheel 
Try it.
