These times of people loosing their jobs and sometimes families, there is a lack of peace in people's lives. Perhaps even your life...

God wants us to have peace in our lives regardless of our circumstances.

This blog is called Wealth and Riches because it is my desire to see you Wealthy and Rich in every area of your life. Spiritually, financially, physically, and in your relationships with others.
It's not always easy to have a well balanced life, but I do believe it is achievable when we focus on each area of our lives to have all these traits. I'm not promising you can gain each one overnight, some takes years to attain fully, but I do believe you can start building each into your life starting today.

Peace...How in the world do we have it when things around us are anything but peaceful?

First we must come to realize that peace does not mean perfection around us or even in ourselves.
We might be experiencing a job loss, or threat of a job loss. Perhaps a family challenge, or a health issue. Yet we can have peace when we pay attention to our spiritual lives and understand where peace can come from.

In the Bible Jesus says "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."- John 16:33

Jesus is pointing out that in the world we have tribulations. Other words for "tribulation" would be affliction, hardship, distress, adversity. We all have those in this world, there is no doubt, but let's focus on what Jesus promise is: "be of good cheer; I have overcome the world".
That's great news! You see through Jesus we can be of good cheer even when hardship and adversity comes our way!

Philippians 4:7 tells us "and the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

How? let's jump up to verse 6. It says "Be careful for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known unto God."

So we are to start by petitioning God through prayer along with giving thanks.
We always have something to be thankful for, even if it's the breath of life.

The other day I asked someone I've known for a few years "how are you doing?" and he said
"I'm upright and breathing".
Well, it's a start anyhow. If you have nothing more to be thankful for, you can be thankful that you are alive.

Now let's go deeper and find how we can have this peace that God is giving us.
In Philippians 4:8 the bible tells us what we are to dwell on:
"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are
whatsoever things are
whatsoever things are
whatsoever things are
whatsoever things are
whatsoever things are of
*good report;
if there by any
*virtue, and if there be any
think on these things.

Let's break these words down into further meaning to so can apply them to our daily lives:

True: (not concealed or hidden) As in secrets or gossip. Only things that are true.

Honest: honorable in principles, intentions, and actions; upright and fair

Just: innocent, holy, righteous

Pure: clean or blameless

Lovely: friendly toward, affection of the heart towards others

Good report: well spoken, reputable

Virtue: valor, excellence, praise. Valor means boldness or determination in facing great danger, esp. in battle; heroic courage; bravery

Praise: commendable thing, praise worthy.

Those are a lot of things to think about! Fill your mind with these things instead of your challenges and your problems and Gods peace will fill you instead of fear and turmoil.

May you have more Wealth and Riches in your life today!

Opportunity often comes...

"Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat." -- Napoleon Hill

With that statement in mind, how can we take today's economy into mind?
We watch and listen to how horrible things are in the news day in and day out for a few years now. Unemployment at it's highest since 1982...x amount of people being laid off from this company and that company. How the States and Nation is in debt and on and on and on.

I'd say this is one of the greatest opportunities we are facing in our lifetime!
Seems like a strange statement. Even foreign. Maybe Dexter is with his head stuck in a hole in the ground you might say?

Let's look at history. Did you know more Millionaires were made during the great depression then at any other time in history? I did not live back then, but I would image the average citizen heard on the radio each night how bad the depression was and woke up each morning to their coffee and newspaper to even more bad news. People jumping out of windows committing suicide because of the stock market plunge. Yet....there were more Millionaires made during this time than any other time at that point in history. How, why? And how knowing this knowledge can bring prosperity into our lives today?

What was different from the person that became a Millionaire to the person lined up in the soup line because he couldn't even buy groceries?

It was how they seen things. It was their attitude. Like the quote above, they seen opportunity in
disguise! They seen it for what it was and took the bull by the horns and made money from it!

Yes today's economy is different. Things are changing. Jobs are no longer being perceived as "secure" as they once was. That is NOT a bad thing. That is a GOOD thing.

You see it's time to enlarge your vision. To look beyond a "job". I'll give you a recent example:

There is this man who found a way to make money wearing a company's shirt. Yeah, what most of us wear from time to time, maybe with a company's name a and logo on it, but we don't get paid. But he does. Now watch this video about him and I'm going to make a point. Especially notice the guy at the end asking about a job: Go here now and click on the video once you get there: http://www.reuters.com/article/lifestyleMolt/idUSTRE5A50K620091106
Scroll down after watching the video clip

The guy that said "I'd love to get a job like yours. Where can I sign up?"
The difference between the two men are like the gap between the North and South Poles! Jason who created the business and the other man who had only a "job mentality". The truth is Jason who created iwearyourshirt.com didn't start a job, he started a business. You can bet the man looking for a so called "easy job" made half of what Jason made in 2009. Why? Jason created something of value where the job minded man was only looking for an easy buck.

Yes, being in business can be challenging! It can also be very rewarding!
Take the risk, find an opportunity in disguise and create something with value. Once you do, you'll see your financial well being sky rocket!

More Wealth and Riches in your life.

Plastic Containers can be deadly

Cancer Update from John Hopkins

This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.

No plastic containers in microwave.

No water bottles in freezer.

No plastic wrap in microwave.

A dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer.

Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic Bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.

Recently, Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , Was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us.

He said that we should not be heating our food in the
Microwave using plastic containers...

This especially applies to foods that contain fat.

He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin Into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body...

Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic Containers for heating food... You get the same results, only without the dioxin.
So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., Should be removed from the container and heated in something else.
Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper.
It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away From the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons...

Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when Placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high Heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food.
Cover food with a paper towel instead.

This is an article that should be sent
to anyone important in
your life!

ALSO -------------------------------------

Bottled water in your car
Very dangerous.

A friend whose mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and the Doctor told her: women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.

The doctor said that the heat and the plastic of the bottle have certain chemicals that can lead to breast cancer. So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car, and, pass this on to all the women in your life. This information is the kind we need to know and be aware and just might save us! The heat causes toxins from the plastic to leak into the water and they have found these toxins in breast tissue. Use a stainless steel Canteen or a glass bottle when you can!

Self Limitations Discovered!

Self Limitations...

Do you have any? Do you know if you have any really?
I'm going to open up and give you a great example of having one myself and not even knowing it until I overcame it.

About five months ago I lost my wife's ID. Not a big deal when you're an American Citizen, but a big deal when you're not. At least this was my mind frame at the time because not only did I loose her State ID, but also her Permanent Resident Card also which basically proves she has a right to be here legally.

So all this time I was thinking that it would not be possible to replace her State ID card unless she had other ID to prove who she was. She does have her passport, but it has her maiden name on it as we never updated her Passport yet to reflect her married name.

Well, I got the idea just yesterday (after 5 long months of delay) to go ahead and go down to the D.M.V and just see if we could get her State ID again.
We filled out a simple form (took no more then 2 minutes) and brought it back up to the counter. He asked what her SS# was, she gave it verbally; and within 10 minutes we were walking out of the place with a new State ID card for her! WOW, that was easy I proclaimed! We both were in awe of how our limiting belief's kept us from getting her ID which was so important to have.

So now I'm asking myself more internal questions and I encourage you to do the same "what other belief's do I have that are limiting my abundance?" Find the answer and then take ACTION NOW to correct what ever it is, so you too can have more Wealth and Riches in your own life now.

Longwood Adventure

"Exquisite flowers, majestic trees, dazzling fountains, extravagant conservatory, starlit theater, thunderous organ—all describe the magic of Longwood Gardens".

Pierre DuPont founder of DuPont chemical company used part of his fortune to develop the property into what it is today. Mr. DuPont created a foundation for the property so it would endure and be enjoyed by the public.

My wife Mae at the Visitor Center right before we entered in to buy our tickets.

What a beautiful wife I have! We were here at Longwood as part of our celebration of being married for two years now.

Inside the Conservatory

DuPont's Ballroom Fireplace

I can see that Mr. DuPont knew how to use his money to be both Wealthy and Rich.
May we all aspire to use our money to better people's lives and the environment around us.

Wishing you more Wealth and Riches in your life!
