HaHaGame

ROTTALTOTAYBO Rolling on the tummy and laughing to tears your belly off

Good Morning. It has come to my attention (incredible as it seems) that there may be some that have never heard of, have never experienced and have never enjoyed the MANY benefits of, The HA HA Game!

Brief Description:

Each person places his or her head on another person’s tummy, so that everyone is connected. The 1st person says “Ha”, then the 2nd person “Ha-ha” and so on. The goal is to get all the way through the group without anyone laughing. Right, like that will ever happen! It’s infectious, contagious and hilarious! See how long it takes for everyone to roar and literally stream tears of joyous nearly uncontrollable (dare I write belly) laughter!!!

Now the best way is to form a circle. Obviously the first person would have to rest two heads on their belly, the second and the last person’s heads. I volunteer as I can easily accommodate 2 heads on my present belly! 🙂

BENNIES (Benefits):

As an icebreaker. What a Great way to meet people! Right, try this at a party or at work! Maybe a political rally? Sure, put the DEM’s, GOP’s and INDY’s together doing this and we just might become, the UNITED States of America again! Caution, people that laugh together might just not only get-along, get things done and etc., but they might actually learn to like each other!

For those that seem to have no sense of humor or have forgotten theirs, they just might discover or uncover what has been there all aong!

As a stress reliever. “Do I need to explain how this would be possible,” said the person whose head is bouncing off another’s tummy and someone’s head is bouncing off of yours? It’s kind of hard to be depressed too, if you are LYAATO (laughing your ass and tummy off)! 🙂

Good medicine! OMG, YES! Laughter is good medicine. It increases “endorphin rushes,.” like exercising and other activities which produce euphoric highs!

Increase of dopamine. Dopamine functions as a neurotransmitter—a chemical released by neurons (nerve cells) to send signals to other nerve cells. The brain includes several distinct dopamine pathways, one of which plays a major role in reward-motivated behavior. Increase of serotonin includes the regulation of mood, appetite, and sleep. Serotonin also has some cognitive functions, including memory and learning. Increase of circulation. Increase of oxygen intake. Do this long enough and maybe it will become your new favorite weight-loss program! WHAT? All this from the HA HA Game? YEP and more! It’s Good Medicne!

“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine…”

Proverbs 17:22a King James Version (KJV)

Well, what are you waiting for? Ha. Ha, Ha. Ha, Ha, Ha, Ha. HaHaHaHaHaHa!!! 🙂

On Rainbows:

Double Rainbow

Double Rainbow

The R A I N B O W has long been a symbol of  life, fertility, as a bridge from and to the spirit world, an archer’s bow and of promise and of hope. I like to think of the double rainbow (pictured to your left) as, ‘Promises Made & Promises Kept!”

A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that is caused by both reflection and refraction of light in water droplets in the Earth’s atmosphere, resulting in a spectrum of light.

There are many other rare formations of color in the sky as the double rainbow. These other rainbow-like formations include: moonbows, seabows, icebows, sundogs and what I call snowbows.

Moonbows form at evening or night with water and if occurring, the bow will be seen away from the moon which passes through the droplets bending the moon’s reflected light from the sun and form the moonbow. What I have personally seen is where mist or spray rising off a waterfall at night, mixes with the light of the moon to form the moonbow.

Seabows or waterbows form from the salt water spray or mist which bends the light of the sun. It may be possible to see both a rainbow and a seabow at the same time, but the seabow’s arch will never line up with that of the rainbow. They are formed separately.

Icebows or halos (from Greek ἅλως; also known as a nimbus, or gloriole. They are an optical phenomenon produced by ice crystals creating colored or white arcs and spots in the sky. Many are near the sun or moon, but others are elsewhere and even in the opposite part of the sky. They can also form around artificial lights in very cold weather when ice crystals called diamond dust, are floating in the nearby air.

Sundogs are commonly made by the refraction of light from plate-shaped hexagonal ice crystals in high and cold cirrus clouds. or during very cold weather. These ice crystals are called diamond dust, and drift in the air at low levels. These crystals act as prisms, bending the light rays passing through them with a minimum deflection of 22°. If the crystals are randomly oriented, a complete ring around the sun is seen — a halo. But often, as the crystals sink through the air, they become vertically aligned, so sunlight is refracted horizontally — in this case, sundogs are seen. They are so-called, as they sometimes appear on opposite sides of the sun or like smaller suns that appear to, ‘dog’ the sun.

Snowbows may appear when it seems as if snow is falling, but it is actually, more like ice dust or what is referred to as, ‘diamond dust.’ Snowflakes if they melt, turn into water droplets and if these freeze, they will not become flakes again, but small particles of ice (dust) which may appear like falling snow. Snow does not allow light to pass-thru like water and ice crystals. But this floating dust might look like falling snow, so if the colored arc appears, I like to call this a snowbow.

Another rare phenomenon and perhaps my personal favorite is what I call, ‘The Smile of God.’ The smile of God is an upside down rainbow. Technically this is  called, the circumzenithal arc, CZA. It is the most beautiful of all the halos. The first sighting is always a surprise. It is like an ethereal rainbow fled from its watery origins and wrapped improbably about the zenith. It is often described as an “upside down rainbow” or as, “a grin in the sky” I like, ‘The Smile of God.”

Somewhere Over the Rainbow!

Israel “Iz” Kaʻanoʻi Kamakawiwoʻole (Hawaiian pronunciation: [kəˌmɐkəˌvivoˈʔole]) translation: “The Fearless Eyed”; May 20, 1959 – June 26, 1997), also called Bruddah Iz (Brother Iz), was a Hawaiian musician. His voice became famous outside Hawaii when his album Facing Future was released in 1993. His medley of “Somewhere over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World” was subsequently featured in several films, television programs, and television advertisement commercials. Through his skillful ukulele playing and incorporation of other genres (such as jazz and reggae), Kamakawiwoʻole’s music remains a very strong influence in Hawaiian music. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel_Kamakawiwo%CA%BBole http://www.izhawaii.com/

Promise Keeper

by Donnie Hayden © 2014, all rights reserved
 

In gentle rain when Spring brings forth her tender blade

In warmth of Summer’s vibrant glade

In peak of Fall’s color, before the fade

oft’ fair-weather are promises made

 

But though storms break in Winter’s restless sleep

and earth has frozen and all the waters of the deep

and all troubles piled as snow upon a heap

Promises made are still, promises to keep

 
Promise Keeper

Be a Promise Keeper

 

It is easy to make promises, but it is often difficult to keep them. It is in our power to make promises. We should always strive to keep them! I think of promise and hope whenever I see a rainbow. And when I see a double rainbow I think of promises made and promises kept. Be a Promise Keeper!

Promise Made:

“I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth”

The Bible Genesis 9:13-16, King James Version

Promise Kept:

“… doubled… twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.”

The Bible, Genesis 41:32, King James Version

On Being God-like

Inquiring Minds Want to Know

Inquiring Minds Want to Know

I Needed and I Knew

by Dahni © 2014, all rights reserved
 
I needed to see God in the midst of so much fear, uncertainty and confusion
and I saw you
I needed God to call my name and give me peace to my restless soul
and I heard you call my name
I needed God to comfort me, to heal my body and my soul
and I felt your hand upon my shoulder
I needed God to give me just a taste of hope
and I tasted the honey in your sweet words to me
I needed God to tell me He loved me
and I felt your warm embrace and your kiss upon my cheek
 
I needed God
and I know, He is with me, whenever you are near
 
 
Oh, There He is!

Oh, There He is!

Show me God! I can’t see Him! Look all around you!

Proving Hours!

Proving Hours!

God has no hands, but our hands of which to give any bread

He has no feet, but our feet, to move among the almost dead

We say that we are His and He is ours

Deeds are the proofs of that not words

and these are the proving hours

Note: There have been many that have claimed authorship of this poem or it has been attributed to others, believed to have written it. From my perspective, I don’t know who wrote it nor do I believe anyone else does either! There are several adaptations or versions if you will. Well, I changed a few words – “them” to “any” on the first line and “proof” to “proofs” in the third line. So, I will close with this of which I am quite sure is the truth, for me and that is, the author is – 

-unknown-

No Need!

No Need!

None will ever need to ask and we will never need to explain, argue, defend or ever tell a single soul. The world will know it is God in Christ in you, by the love you give to them –

without condition, reservation, judgment or hesitation.

The Love of God!

-dahni-

“They’ll know we are Christians by our love.” 

 
 
A line from the Christian Hymn, “They’ll Know We Are Christians” (also known as “They’ll Know We Are Christians By Our Love” or “We Are One in the Spirit”). It was written in 1968 by then-Catholic priest, Peter R. Scholtes. It is inspired by The Bible, the gospel of John

“By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”

 The Bible, the gospel of John 13:35, King James Version
