What is a treasure ?

What is a  treasure ?
We are spiritual beings.  Our ability to enjoy life depends upon our ability to understand something as simple as an idea.  Our Constitution guarantees us the right to pursue life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.  For me the recollection of a pleasant memory is a source of happiness.
19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 
20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 
21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Your DNA

 A story about your DNA

Genes are portions of the Chromosomes.  Chromosomes are the portions of the DNA.

DNA is a remarkable chemical code that controls the way each cell in your body is structured.

Imagine if you can  that the moment you were conceived some of the chromosomes for one parent combined with the  chromosomes of the other parent and the new individual now contains an absolutely different blueprint form every other  person on the earth.

Then when you accept this fact, enlarge your thinking to recognize that every living thing has s similar type of cell identification.  If you could find the model and serial number of a cell in your body or a the body of a sugar beet, or a  goldfish, or a  mouse, or a house fly that model and serial  number is the  DNA molecule,

The DNA is the chemical code or instruction blueprint that instructs the cell how to  build another cell exactly like itself.

The fact that cells  maintain the integrity of a single   organ in the body depends on the ability of  the cell to make another  exactly like itself.  The simplest example we can all visualize is to know that if you make a cut in your skin the skin will repair itself.  If it is a bigger cut we put  stitches into the skin to  hold the cut edges together while the skin build new cells to repair the damage.

Template to guide your thinking

I had six honest serving men

They taught me all I knew

Their names were, What and Where and When

And How and Why and Who

This is a template to guide your thinking. It has a universal application to any task which requires your thinking and planning for your next action.

These six questions if used properly will give you the answer to virtually any problem you will encounter. The simplest way I know to teach about the skill of making good decisions is to provide an example.

This is the way I became a valuable trouble shooter for the company I worked for. Our job was to supply new, different and effective treatments for all manner of animal enterprises on farms. We had unique and valuable answers to improve the profit for any farmer who depended on his animals to make him some money.

The circumstances for my first meeting with the farmer were usually potentially very challenging because the farmer was very unhappy. His cows were sick and he had spent some money for what he thought was going to be an answer to his problem. Now that money is gone and the disease problem has gotten worse and his monetary losses were severe enough that his farm would be facing bankruptcy.

To my grandchildren

 December 9, 2004

To my  Grandchildren:

The most important thing I can give to you is an encouragement to learn more about the God who made you and make sure you know how important you are in His eyes.

God loves you and wants you to be happy and successful.

The best way to do that is to believe in yourself with all your might!

Each of you have special talents and of course different abilities and different interests.

If God made you and loves you and wants good things for you then one of the best things you can do is to learn more about God.  The place you do that is through   His Word and His Word is the Bible.

This book is written by men that wrote the ideas they got from God.

We call this inspiration.  The important thing is to realize that we are more than just a body; we also have a soul and a spirit.  The soul is the real you inside the body and it will live forever.  The body is given to you to enjoy while you are here on earth.  The spirit is that magical thing that gives you life.  While you are here on earth you must have the body, soul and spirit.

This folder may give you some helps as you study the Bible.  You may expect me to send you more pages from time to time when I get the chance to tell you more things I hope you will enjoy and want to learn.

The first story is the story of Christmas written by Matthew and Luke who are found in the New Testament.

I love you
