James 1:17

EVERY GOOD GIFT AND EVERY PERFECT GIFT IS FROM ABOVE AND COMES DOWN FROM THE FATHER OF LIGHTS, WITH WHOM THERE IS NO VARIATION OR SHADOW OF TURNING

 

 

Hi all sorry its been awhile since I have posted anything but am glad to be back and I kept my promise! There are two things I promised you all the last time I wrote, the first thing was, I promised to announce the name of my book and the second was I promised to make a video of me singing LOL.

Oh my was that hard to do, I liked singing in front of people when I was younger much better, when you are young you do not care how foolish you look LOL. But eventually I got out of my self centered ways and realized it didn’t matter how foolish I looked because it was not to honor you all (no offense) it was to honor my hero, my king of kings, my LORD JESUS CHRIST, and I thought what better christmas gift could I give not only you all but also him than to do the one thing I know he’s been begging me to do.

Also as I said in the video, the video that I pray you all watch. I am naming my book “O.I CAN DO ALL THINGS” and so like I said in the video I want to keep posting videos of things I have learned how to do over the years. to show that if we are strong minded and determined and allow GOD to be our guide, than we really can do all things .

Other than the book and the video, I would also like to talk about the holidays. Particularly Hanukkah and Christmas, and I know you are all thinking what the heck, why hanukkah?? you are not jewish, and you are right I am not  jewish LOL, but I do hold some of their traditions close to my heart.

And there are a few reasons as to why that is, number one I think some of their traditions are beautiful and the meaning behind some of them is even more beautiful, and number two I always want to honor Jesus, he is my father and just like I honor my natural fathers traditions I want to do the same for my spiritual one.

And the fact is my Abba father (Jesus Christ) was raised jewish and did follow their traditions, and I want to follow his heart and some of these traditions are a part of him, its really no different than what I do in the summer time with my earthly family. I dont think I have ever told you all this but, I come from a small italian neighborhood called the little italy neighborhood, besides it being an italian neighborhood filled with italian traditions it is also a very religious neighborhood and the majority of the people who live here are born and raised catholics, I am like the one percent who is not catholic LOL, but even though I am not catholic that doesn’t mean I don’t honor and respect them.

It also doesn’t mean I ignore their traditions, like every summer around my birthday, there is an italian/catholic festival (although they hate the word festival) they call it the feast of the assumption, and basically the way my grandmother always explained it to me is, its a day to honor and “bless” the blessed mother (marry, jesus mother) and even though I am not catholic, I still participate because it is a part of my heritage and a part of me, just like Hanukkah is, because jesus is a part of me and so that means his heritage is too.

Now don’t get me wrong I do believe there is a little difference between following some of my catholic ways compared to following some of the jewish ways, because, I mean this as respectfully as I can, but I do believe there is a small difference because out of all the catholic traditions I have not found as many biblical meanings to the things they do.

Where on the other hand I am finding biblical things every day that stands for jewish ways, I am just trying to give you a picture of JESUS background. And how we have a heritage through him just like we do our natural family.

Celebrating Hanukkah and lighting the menorah is a beautiful thing, it basically means I am not ashamed of my faith and I am going to light these candles and place them near my window for all the world to see that I am not ashamed of GOD and his light will always be shining in my household.

Look it all these scriptures about light, I don’t know about you but I always want his light shining in me and thru me. Matthew 5:16. Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. John 8:12. Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” John 12:35. Then Jesus said to them, “A little while longer the light is with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you; he who walks in darkness does not know where he is going. 

I know where I am going do you????

There are a billion more scriptures that mention light and more importantly GODS light, but the ones I listed above were my faves 🙂

WHERE DID OUR COMPASSION GO????

December 9, 2013

Facebook-Promo

1 PETER 3:8

“FINALLY, ALL OF YOU, LIVE IN HARMONY WITH ONE ANOTHER; BE SYMPATHETIC, LOVE AS BROTHERS, BE COMPASSIONATE AND HUMBLE.”

Hi all I am back!!! LOL (laugh out loud) I am so so sorry I haven’t wrote in almost a year! But I have a good reason why I haven’t wrote and for once it has nothing to do with my health, thank you JESUS!!!.

Before I get in to why I have not blogged, and where I have been all this time, let me first start off by saying: I have been doing amazingly well health wise, at least for me its amazingly well LOL. It has been almost an entire year since I have been admitted in to any hospital, and again ill say: THANK YOU JESUS!!!!.

I had one little scare about two months ago, where I did have one of what I call my,” stomach attacks” but thankfully I did not have to be admitted for that, it did take a lot out of me though, because it was the first time, that had happened since my surgery in January of 2012. So my body was not used to feeling that way, so it did take a few days to get back on my feet, or in my case, I guess it be, my wheels LOL.

So the big announcement!!!! where has Jackie been for almost a year, if she was not sick???? Jackie has been working her butt off, thats where she’s been LOL. As you all know, my one dream and one of the reasons I even started this website, was to write my own book. so thats what I have been doing over the past, id say 9 months. I have been writing a book and it hasn’t been easy LOL.

And sadly my blog has kind of been pushed to the back burner sort of speak, because by the time I am done writing for my book its already about two in the morning and a girl does have to sleep at some point LOL, but honestly and truly, I have not forgotten my blog or any of the people who follow it, but there truly is only so much time in one day and as I said from day one, I would focus on whatever I felt the LORD leading me to do, and as of about April of last year I really felt the LORD starting to pull at my heart to start moving on this book and so I am happy and most of all proud to say: I obeyed and started writing it and am hoping it will be finished by the new year!!!!

Now I am not saying it will be printed by the new year, I am just saying ill be done writing it by the new year LOL, having it printed is a whole new story and another journey ill be traveling down very soon, but I have decided even if I have troubles getting it printed, which means if I have trouble finding someone that would be willing to help get physical copies of it printed up, than I will go down the road of just turning it in to a ebook, until I find a publisher. So thats the story of where I been and what I been up to and all that good stuff LOL.

Now lets get down to business shall we? awhile ago, ill be honest, a long, LONG!!! while ago LOL, the LORD started giving me this word to share with you guys, but I did not feel I had his blessing, sort of speak, to give this word, up until now!!!.

WHERE DID OUR COMPASSION GO???? I felt GOD laying that question on my heart a few months ago, when I experienced two incidents on  facebook. One incident was a good one and one was a more negative one. I will share the negative one first, one day I shared something on my THE-BOOK-OF-ROO facebook page.

Here is a screen shot of what I had on my facebook page:

IMG_0955

This was a post KCTV posted awhile back, they were asking people to please help this little boy who was extremely sick, and over time I had been really inspired and touched by this kids story, so all I did was share that post and put please read. Well little did I know what drama that post would start for me LOL.

After I shared that post, I was not at all focusing on where the post had came from, all I was focusing on is this poor sick boy who had no one, and the fact that he needed help. I received some very angry comments about this particular post, because the second people seen this post, they focused on every thing but the story.

When I shared this post all they (my followers) seen was where the post came from, and where that post came from was KCTV, which stands for KIM CLEMENT!! some may be asking at this point who is this Kim Clement guy??? and some may be rolling their eyes as they see me writing his name. You see when it comes to Kim Clement people either love him or they hate him LOL,

For the record I love him and his ministry, and I do all I can to support it, but that is not the point or moral of this story. Kim Clement for those of you who do not know of him, he is a prophet, yes you heard me right, a prophet! LOL. I know there are many debates over prophets, and who believes in them and who doesn’t, but I am not here to get in to that debate with you, so no one start sending me letters debating on if you think this guys a man of GOD or not, because frankly I don’t care what you all think about him LOL. I am mentioning this, not because of the prophet, but because of the kid in this photo, and how some of you reacted when you seen this kid.

The sad thing of when I posted this, not one person stepped up and said: what can I do?, or even a, I will pray for this boy. All most of them focused on, is where the post had originated from, and what that guy (Kim Clement) stood for. That is so sad to me, I want to throw up just thinking about it. Have we become so religious that we forgot what we stand for???

That post was not about Kim Clement, it was about a young boy stuck in china with no family who was literally dying!!!, and that man, Kim Clement, that a lot of you yelled at me for supporting, him and his wife and his family were the ones who ended up taking that boy in along with 3 other special needs kids.

Jeremiah 9:1 says: Oh, that my head were a spring of water and my eyes a fountain of tears! I would weep day and night for the slain of my people. This is how we should be towards our people. GOD created us to be able to look in every direction, he did not create us to just look straight ahead.

People including Christians have become so competitive, and I swear its getting worse instead of better LOL, we all want to be noticed, or be number one, and don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with perfection, but don’t become so close minded and so focused on perfection that you lose sight of whats really important in life, and most importantly, don’t lose sight of  GODS heart.

I hate to mention her again, but here I go LOL. I love the meaning of Beckah Shaes love glasses and I love how in her own creative way she’s teaching kids every day to look with love. I am begging you all wear those love glasses, don’t look at things with such anger and judgement, but look at them with LOVE.

We have to get our compassion back for one another, I have seen so many situations over the past few years that have left my head spinning, because I cant believe how close minded we have become and how focused we are on me, me, me. I have to have the perfect kids, the perfect house, I mean even in the church we try to be the “perfect Christians” and give that “perfect family” image and we get so focused on all that, that we forget to look and see whats happening around us.

go beyond your four walls and your little “perfect world” that if we all were honest with one another really isn’t so perfect anyways, because no one has it all figured out LOL.

The second thing I seen on facebook that made me ask where did our compassion go, was when I seen a post that Jack Shocklee posted awhile back after he had come back from a mission trip. I am sure you all know who Jack Shocklee is, but incase someone does not know who he is, Jack Shocklee owns shae shoc records with Beckah Shae, he is a producer, he produces Christian music for many well known artists, he is also Beckah Shae’s husband (obviously) and has produced all her songs as well.

A while ago, after him and Beckah came back from one of their mission trips, I seen him post a picture of a beautiful little baby girl, and he  commented on how much he loved this baby and how cute she was, and even though thats some thing sort of small, it really touched my heart and blessed and inspired me, because I thought to myself, wow here is this big time producer bragging about how much he loves this baby who he just met and who he has no attachment to.

And it made me think, if everyone had a heart for people like those two have, where would we be??? if we all just stopped with the me, me, me attitudes and just looked beyond ourselves, how great would life be? would there even be poor people?? Now don’t get me wrong, I am not saying they (Beckah and Jack)  are perfect LOL, I am sure they have flaws, haven’t seen any, but I am sure they have them LOL, but all Im saying is we need to get beyond ourselves and get back to our roots, and having a compassionate heart, is part of our roots.

Because there was no one that had a more compassionate heart than Jesus did, He gave his life for us, because he felt compassion for his people. He was willing to endure all that pain so we would not have to. Who other than Jesus would do that?? Im not saying to give your all, but I do think its about time we stop having that one track mind mentality and, that we start looking to the right and to the left and start seeing the pain that people are enduring around us, and I feel its time we start shinning the light in those dark places.

When I was writing this blog I kept feeling the LORD telling me to look up the definition of the “me generation” and at first I ignored that because I kept saying to myself, GOD thats just a saying, or a phrase people made up, how in the world would I look it up, and why? I already know what it means, and I kept feeling him pushing me to look it up, so I did, I googled it.

And when I seen what was on my search engine, I started cracking up. This is what it says, it says: the “me generation” is characterized by material things. It is time we get out of the “me generation” and start being what GODS called us to be.

Colossians 3:12 says:  Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.  Thats what were supposed to be kind, compassionate, gentle, patient, love, Thats what GOD has called us to be. So stop looking at your own situation, your own desires, and look at what GODS called you to be.

Last year when I was in the hospital, GOD was showing me again a situation, where compassion was lost. this was april of last year, I was having a very minor surgery on my arm, I wasn’t even admitted, I came home an hour after it, but while I was there and they were prepping me to go in to surgery, there was two other patients, one was to the left of me and one was in front of me.

The one to the left of me was a young teen maybe 14 at the most, and my heart broke for him, he was just about to go in to surgery for what I think was some type of exploratory operation. His bed was right next to mine and they did have the curtains closed, but with it being so close to me, it was hard not to over hear the situation, and the situation was this, the kid was in foster care, and you could just see the anger in this kid and you could see how unloved and hopeless he felt, and yet because he was only in his early teens, you could see the fear in him about going in to surgery.

And all you could see that this kid wanted, was someone to show him some compassion and love, he had absolutely no one there with him but a caseworker, and the caseworker was not very heartfelt, or compassionate towards his situation. You could see he was just a job to her and worse, I could see he seen it too. I don’t know the outcome of that kids surgery, when I came out of my surgery, he was gone, But ever since that day, I been praying for kids that are in his shoes, and praying that one day things will change, and people will learn to be more compassionate towards kids like that.

There was another kid in a bed in front of me, she probably was not even seven years old, and she had a Trach in her, which means she had a tube in her neck, which made her unable to speak, and it broke my heart, because this kid had no one by her side either, and you even heard the nurses whispering to one another, is this kids parents ever going to come?? because this girl was trying to act so brave, but yet you could see the fear in this child’s eyes. So here I am laying in a bed with two kids on each side of me, with no one, and yet near my bed I not only have a parent on each side, but I have them fighting over which one gets to wheel me in to surgery and place me on the operating table LOL.

And in that moment when usually, I am starting to get nervous, and upset, and usually feel every negative feeling you can think of, I felt complete peace and was so thankful for the life I was given and for the family I have. A friend asked me just the other day, if I have ever asked why me?? and I told him heck no, I am someone who was supposed to be dead within ten days after birth, so how could I feel anything but blessed and grateful to GOD that I experienced everything, that I have been able to experience.

The video I have featured above is all about the true meaning of Christmas, and how its not about gifts, but its about the love of CHRIST. the video features a Christian artist named Natalie Villa, she has been such a sweetheart to me and I am going to be featuring more of her music very soon along with an interview.

There have been four woman who have blessed me and showed me more compassion than anyone I know, (not counting my family) LOL Jill Parr, Beckah Shae, Kathleen Carnali, and Natalie Villa. Thank you four ladies for shining such a bright and loving light  on to me and for being so patient with me and allowing me to feature your music on my blogs and brag about you all and pester you whenever I need prayer or encouragement, it has meant a lot and I have truly been blessed by you all 🙂

One fast announcement before I end, as I am sure you seen in the video. I have teamed up with my friend Sean Giachetti and Rock water ministries, to help raise money to give a family, or families, in need a Christmas this year. We have started a fundraiser page called: THE HEART OF CHRISTMAS. Proverbs 3:28 says: “Do not say to your neighbor, “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you”– when you already have it with you.” I know its Christmas time and our funds are low, but any money you could donate to that page we would greatly appreciate it, and more importantly the families that you will be helping will appreciate it.

I would really like to start a page like this, but make it last all year long, I would eventually like to keep blessing families through out the entire year not just at Christmas, but for now I am taking baby steps and am going to see how this goes and if it goes as well as I hope than I will carry it out all year long 🙂

Please know that, the family that you bless, we will do our best to get you a picture of that family, so you can be a part of the gift giving experience, but if the family objects to having their picture taken, than there is nothing we can do, but we our going to try our best to get you all pictures of the families receiving their gifts 🙂 this is the link to The Heart of Christmas Fundraiser page, please click and give             http://www.youcaring.com/nonprofits/the-heart-of-christmas/107368   

BEFORE I END I DID HAVE A FEW PRAYER REQUESTS THAT PEOPLE WROTE IN ABOUT ON THE-BOOK-OF-ROO PRAYER PAGE, AND AS I SAID WHEN I STARTED THAT PAGE, ID MAKE SURE YOU ALL WERE PRAYING WITH ME,

FIRST PRAYER REQUEST IS FROM A MOTHER, HER NAMES FRAN, SHE SAYS:  My 19 year old has fallen into the humanism
School of thought. He’s been raised in a Christian home, made his profession of faith at a young age. He is at a Christian camp right now where many of the leaders are praying for him. Pray for a strong piercing transformation while he’s there, that Jesus would reveal himself to my son Blake.

SECOND PRAYER REQUEST IS FROM A WOMAN NAMED ANA, SHE SAYS:  Please pray for my Brother Randy ,He has a stage 4 Metastatic Esophageal Cancer and the Doctor told us that He has only 3-6 months to live,Last Month He had an esophagectomy Operation but they found out that His Cancer spread to His Liver…He is Only 43 years old and have 3 kids,her eldest. Is 8 years old and the youngest is 1 year old…and Please pray for my Brother Raniel Galvez,He is 42 years old and have Thyroid Cancer.Thank You very much and God bless.

THIRD PRAYER REQUEST IS FROM A MAN NAMED JASON, HE SAYS:

Please pray for my girlfriend Angel and I. My girlfriend Angel and I haven’t talked to each other in about a week. I am not to sure what is going on with us. We have known each other for about 5 years and have been going out for 5 months. Things were going good between us as far as I knew before Angel moved. After Angel moved I tried to hang out with her at times, but Angel kept telling me that she was busy and didn’t have time to see or hang out with me. Angel does have 3 kids and recently hurt her arm and shoulder having her arm in a sling. Angel has told me that she does care about me, that I am a wonderful guy and that she wants to work things out between us. Lately it seems like she is either to busy or doesn’t want to hang out with me. I have been for the past week trying to give her some space and only sent her an email apologizing for possibly being a little to pushy maybe and bothering her by trying to hang out with her and find out what’s going on. I do like and care about her a lot and would like things to work out with her. I know that 2 of her kids have said that they don’t have a problem with me and that it doesn’t bother them when I am over their house visiting. Yes, Angel could be busy, but I find it a little hard to think that for the past couple weeks to a month that she is so busy that she can’t find anytime to hang out or let me come over and visit for at least 15 minutes. I would like for us to be in an open, honest relationship and have it work out. I also know that her kids father doesn’t care for me and has complained about me to Angel. I know her kids don’t like to listen to well and her oldest daughter is a little bit of a problem child. Please pray for healing for Angel, her kids and I. Pray that our relationship can be mended and saved from falling apart. That we can get through the storms and trails in our life together. Also, that we can be open and honest with each other. Pray that Angel will start showing more that she does care and want to be with me like she says she does. Pray that I can be patient and give Angel the space she needs. That Angel can get the help she need with her kids as well. that Angel and I can become one flesh together with Jesus at the center of our relationship together.

WELL  THATS ALL THE PRAYER REQUESTS AND THATS ABOUT ALL I HAVE TO SHARE FOR TODAY, BUT I AM GLAD TO BE BACK AND HOPEFULLY I HAVE NOT LOST YOU ALL AND YOUR ALL STILL HERE  LOL. BEFORE I END I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING ME AND THIS SITE FOR THE PAST TWO YEARS ALMOST THREE YEARS NOW, WHICH I CANNOT BELIEVE WERE CLOSE TO HITTING OUR THIRD YEAR, BUT IM THANKFUL THAT WE ARE AND IM THANKFUL THAT YOU ALL KEEP READING AND SUPPORTING ME. BEFORE I END PLEASE REMEMBER TO STOP BY ROO’S TREASURES AND PICK UP YOUR O.I CAN DO ALL THINGS BRACELETS, THERE A GREAT STOCKING STUFFER HEHEHE.

PLEASE DONT FORGET TO DONATE TO THE HEART OF CHRISTMAS FUNDRAISER, PLEASE HERES YOUR CHANCE TO SHOW SOME COMPASSION AND DO WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT AND HELP THESE FAMILIES WHO TRULY DO NEED OUR HELP, MORE THAN YOU NEED YOUR COACH PURSE OR XBOX ONE LOL

I PRAY THAT YOU ALL TRULY SHINE THIS CHRISTMAS AND THAT GOD BLESSES YOU FOR BLESSING OTHERS, AND THAT YOU ALL TRULY LEARN WHAT HAVING COMPASSION IS ABOUT AMEN AND THANK YOU JESUS!!!! THATS IT FOR TODAY ALL, REMEMBER JESUS LOVES YOU
