2012 Vision

As the year closes to an end my mind drifts on the year past. A past year of struggles and joy, a year of hard work raising funds, a year that went by only having a vision on one thing. A vision of a far away distant land which is and was unknown. A vision that took me to many wonderful places and adventurers. A vision that was accomplished through hard work and effort. A vision that became a test of my endurance, strength, wisdom and my trust in the Lord, a test of my own character, a test that made me stronger, wiser and more beautiful then before. A vision that even others had a hard time believing. A vision that left my kids vulnerable to their own character and strengths. A vision that became a once in a lifetime opportunity that was beyond even my own expectations. A vision that was and still is indescribable. A vision that led me to you.

They say that visions become reality because of dreams, hopes and inspirations. They become reality because we’re determined and driven by some force unknown. Reality is made up of dreams that start in our heads and hearts. They start from having a desire. My desire is to be free. To “be”, to be who I am, to just be. My desire is to have dreams that are beyond my expectations, to have a life that others talk about, to have a marriage that is indescribable, to have a family that is full of hope, desires and realities that come true. My desire is to do God’s will in all that I do and am. My desire is to have someone who loves me, protects me and honors who I am. I desire someone who will stay by my side as the Lord has. Who will love me as Christ loves the church. My desire started from a dream that had no beginning or no end. A dream that was never reality, only a hope that was inspired by man. A man that told me marriage is good “Because God says it’s good” then turned and walked away.

They say that God test us, brings us trials and struggles to strengthen us, to make us Christ like. My life has been filled with struggles and trails, more then I can count. God also says that he will never give us more then we can handle…He must really trust me. He must know that I am strong and he is making me stronger. For what? I don’t know? What ever it is, it must be good for he has been blessing me the last couple of years with my heart desire and that which is good. He blessed me with a trip that I never expected to go on.

Started with a heart desire. Started with a hope. Started with a Dream. Started with a desire and determination. Started with planting a seed which grew beyond the limits of my own boundaries. Boundaries that not even I knew I had. Boundaries that where Hidden Treasures. Do you know that Hidden Treasures is what makes us surprisingly great to others and to ourselves.

They say that when we have found our hidden treasure, you know the once, the once that are buried so deep that God himself has to dig them out. The treasure that shines, even in the dark, because God himself found it. That same treasure once it’s found, can never be buried again because how can you put light out..you can’t. So they say, when you find treasure that is so precious, to use it in a way that the whole world will know about it and know that it truly is a gift made from Heaven.

Quinoa Seeds vs Hemp Seeds

These tiny little seeds are claimed to be the worlds nutrition seed which is high in Protein. I beg to differ! After doing research I found that Hemp Seeds are still higher in most categories for nutrition. Hemp Seeds also have more nutrition value them Quinoa Seeds. It’s not even a true grain or cereal as it’s related to spinach, beets and tumbleweed. Have you added spinach, beets or tumbleweed to your diet? Most people don’t eat these highly nutritional foods.

Harvesting time is difficult as they need to be harvested by hand. Most are grown in high altitudes and unlike hemp stokes, the Quinoa Seeds take a longer period to grow and harvesting time is difficult to determine. These seeds need plenty of water to survive. For information on the process of harvesting Hemp Seeds you’ll have to come back for a future blog.

These seeds can be grown in your own garden, unlike hemp seeds which will get you into trouble. Would you consider enjoying them all year long by growing them in your garden?

Did you know that Quinoa Seeds are a treasure to some Countries, which are eaten as a stable?

Reason Why Hemp Is Illegal in the U.S.

I really like hemp. Do you?

Hemp farming has been around for over 10,000 years -longer than before the time of Christ!

The more I learn about it, the more I become excited at being able to use this wonderful natural resource. How can anything that bad make my hair feel silky soft, my skin feel wonderful to the touch, my face have a younger appearance? Nothing else can! No one source can have that much benefit. I’ve seen changes in my son since using hemp oil. His negative behavior, social anxiety and hyperactivity have all calmed down. I noticed the changes within a week. The things that I’ve mentioned are just the beginning.

This plant is a wonderful natural resource that can not only fuel one’s body for life (without eating anything else) it can fuel vehicles, make clothes, paper, buildings, paint and so much more. It can revolutionize the way people live, help the environment and restore healthy well-being – a preventative measure to all the diseases and illness of the world.

If it’s so wonderful then why did it become illegal in the U.S.? In fact, in the 600’s, Virginia, Massachusetts, Connecticut and the Chesapeake Colonies in the mid-1700’s all made it possible for the farmers to grow hemp. They not only made it possible, they ordered farmers to grow it. Wouldn’t it be great to be forced to grow this wonderful resource rather then fight for it?

In WWII the American government allowed farmers to grow it in the war effort, and then accepted it as payment for taxes; they even made a film about it called “Hemp for Victory”. In 1937 the government placed such a high tax on it that it made it impossible for farmers to grow industrial hemp. This tax was named “Marijuana Tax Act”

In the 1800’s many of the name brand companies at that time in the U.S. used it to make medication. It was still used till 1920 for veterinary medicine.

It’s legal in Canada. Even the European Union subsidizes farmers to grow industrial hemp. So why not in the United States?

Until 1950, with the government’s interference it was commercially grown so why not now? In 1950, the Federal Bureau of Narcotics put it into the same category as marijuana, so in turn it became illegal in the U.S. With the high tax prices set around the same time as this new category, who would have wanted to grow it anymore.

It should be legal again in the U.S. The government talks so much about saving the planet. The problem-too many corporations that rely on the things Hemp could provide at a low cost, would go out of business.

In the meantime, we can do our part by buying hemp seeds and hemp oil  from sources and countries that do make it legal.

Won’t you do your part?

 

Why Hemp Makes You 100% Satisfied

Hemp as anything but a food source has a bad reputation, is it because people believe that you can smoke it likes its cousin-marijuana.

Hemp and marijuana are in the same family but the properties are different. You can’t smoke hemp. It has none to low THC, the compound that allows a person to become high. It has less than 1% of THC.

It does however have marvelous health benefits for you and your family. It is a complete food source found in nature. People can live on it alone without eating anything else throughout their day.

Hemp is very high in Protein: 35% which 64% of it is Edistin. Hemp Proteins are more highly digestible in your system. It contains globular proteins, Edistin and albumin proteins which are readily available and similarly found in your blood plasma. Edistin is used in your body to make antibodies and enzymes. Albumin is a foetal plasma protein which is water soluble. It disperses substances evenly throughout your blood stream while binding fatty acids, cations and bilirubin to the needed components throughout your body. The levels of amino acids that you’ll find in Hemp Protein are higher than milk, meat or eggs.

It is high in vitamins, A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D and E. In fact, it’s very high in ALL your vitamins and minerals. It’s an adequate source of dietary fiber, calcium and iron, and contains antioxidants and chlorophyll. A good source of phosphorus, magnesium, zinc, copper and manganese.

It is rich in Omega 3, 6, and 9. In fact, the Omega’s you’ll find is higher than any fish or plant that you will eat. We need these Essential Fatty Acids for numerous normal body functions. We need it to control blood clotting and to build cell membranes in the brain, balance our cholesterol, build our immune systems, give us energy, prevent heart problems, improve eyesight, balance our hormones, rebuild cell structure, aid in losing weight and skin disorders and for the inflammation of our joints and muscles. In fact the Essential Fatty Acids in this complete natural food source is the only food source with all the essential fatty acids in perfect proportions. With this much aid in one food source how can 90% of Americans say no to taking Essential Fatty Acids?

It’s one of the only food source to be almost complete with all 21 essential Amino Acids including the 8 which your bodies can not produce. Amino Acids are vital for your body. They serve as the building blocks for protein. Amino Acids are very important in the aid of muscular growth and recovery after exercise. Protein alone will not put significant levels of amino acids into your blood stream until a couple of hours after you eat it. It needs to be in its pure form which you will find when eating hemp. In its pure form, your body can absorb it into the bloodstream within fifteen minutes. This quick absorption helps to prevent muscle catabolism.

For your nutritional health this complete food source is all you need for your body’s health.

Just think-one plant that’s been in use for 10,000 years does all the work of 20 bottles in someone’s medicine cupboard.
