The Hidden Face of Cyber Bullying


by Cherokee Billie.

When cyber bullying is mentioned people, often think of teenagers on the internet. Well, it goes far beyond teenagers playing around on the internet. Cyber bullying has become a hidden evil that sick, weak-minded people use to exert power, fear, and control over someone.

For quite some time I have been following on Facebook a Native American Elder, who is terminally ill and is spending his last days leaving messages that he is receiving from Spirit. We have become good friends and speak on the telephone. I have never seen such courage and commitment to help others as this man has given during his short time left on this planet. Every day I look forward to going to his page and reading the messages he is receiving from Spirit. The visions he is receiving are far reaching into the future, and I do believe the messages he is channeling are coming directly from the Divine Spirit.

His health is fading fast, and he only has a brief moment left to his life. A few weeks ago people started attacking him on his page and accusing him of being a liar about being terminally ill. I know how sick this man is because he has written his diagnosis to me, and I have spoken to him. They also started attacking him about his visions and his Native American heritage.

This has stressed him beyond what he can take, and he has removed himself from Facebook. This is a sad loss to the thousands that followed him daily. I called him the other day to see how he was doing, and he was struggling to talk, but he was so confused as to why he was targeted for such attacks. I told him the ones who attacked him are nothing and they have to exert their power over someone, so, of course, they pick on the weakest. I said prayers with him and we hung up the phone. Often when you are dying, your mind becomes confused, and this beautiful brother has managed to stay focused despite being on heavy narcotics for the pain that he is in. I admire him tremendously.

Cyber bullying does not just hurt someone’s feelings; it is also attacking someone’s spirit. Spiritual attacks are very real because of the negative energies that dwell in many people’s soul. We are spirits inhabiting our bodies, and when something attacks us personally, it goes down to the very core of our existence.

The Beautiful You


In an American history discussion group, the professor was trying to explain how, throughout history, the concept of “beauty” changes with time. “For example,” he said, “take the 1921 Miss America. She stood five feet, one inch tall, weighed 108 pounds and sported a 30-inch bust, a 25-inch waist and 32-inch hips. How do you think she’d do in today’s version of the contest?”

The class fell silent for a moment. Then one student piped up, “Not very well.”

“Why is that?” asked the professor.

“For one thing,” the student pointed out, “she’d be way too old.”

Good point — she would be way too old. But really, beauty is a peculiar thing; it changes with perspectives and means something different to everyone. The beauty that should be most notable is authentic beauty.

Authentic beauty is something deep within — the real you. It is the YOU that is being rediscovered with each new experience; the YOU that is so vividly reflected in those precious few who love us with all their heart.

For inside, you are more beautiful than you may ever know. It would be a waste to never realize that.

An elderly woman noticed that her granddaughter felt embarrassed by her freckles. “I love your freckles,” she said, kneeling beside the girl and admiring her face.

“Not me,” the child replied.

“Well, when I was a little girl I always wanted freckles,” the grandmother said, tracing her finger across the child’s cheek. “Freckles are beautiful.”

The girl looked up. “Really?”

“Of course,” said her grandmother. “Why just name me one thing that’s prettier than freckles.”

The little girl peered into the old woman’s smiling face. “Wrinkles,” she answered softly.

She knew about beauty. Do not close your eyes to the beauty that exists within you!

Happy Friday!

A Mother’s Love


A little boy came up to his mother in the kitchen one evening while she was fixing supper, and handed her a piece of paper that he had been writing on. After his Mom dried her hands on an apron, she read it, and this is what it said:

For cutting the grass: $5.00
For cleaning up my room this week: $1.00
For going to the store for you: $.50
Baby-sitting my kid brother while you went shopping: $.25
Taking out the garbage: $1.00
For getting a good report card: $5.00
For cleaning up and raking the yard: $2.00
Total owed: $14.75

Well, his mother looked at him standing there, and the boy could see the memories flashing through her mind. She picked up the pen, turned over the paper he’d written on, and this is what she wrote:

For the nine months I carried you while you were growing inside me:
No Charge

For all the nights that I’ve sat up with you, doctored and prayed for you: No Charge

For all the trying times, and all the tears that you’ve caused through the years:
No Charge

For all the nights that were filled with dread, and for the worries I knew were ahead:
No Charge

For the toys, food, clothes, and even wiping your nose:
No Charge

Son, when you add it up, the cost of my love is:
No Charge.

When the boy finished reading what his mother had written, there were big tears in his eyes, and he looked straight at his mother and said,”Mom, I sure do love you.” And then he took the pen and in great big letters he wrote: “PAID IN FULL”.

Advice: IF your mom is alive and close to you give her a big kiss and ask her for forgiveness. If she is far away, call her. If she passed away, pray and talk with her.

Mardi Gras history


Mardi Gras is February 21st this year, and with it comes music, parades, krewes, beads, and celebration! You can find a mask or create a costume and head to New Orleans, or you can look for splashes of the holiday to show up in towns like yours. It’s a big celebration, but what is it exactly and how did the whole thing get started?

The “Fat Tuesday” gala started a long time ago, actually way back in 1857. Mardi Gras marks the last day of the Carnival season, a period of rich feasting and frivolity which follows Epiphany and is the day before Ash Wednesday when Lent begins. It’s a floating holiday and the date of Mardi Gras varies slightly because it must fall 47 days before Easter Sunday.

The traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, gold, and green have their roots in political and religious arenas. Purple stands for justice, green for faith, and gold for power. In 1872 some businessmen invented a King of the Carnival festivities named Rex and the first Rex selected the colors and the significance they hold today. A new Rex is chosen each year by the School of Design in New Orleans, the sponsors of the Rex parade. In the “city that care forgot,” the parade champions make sure that visitors and natives alike follow Rex who will always set their hearts to music with “If ever I cease to love.”

Here are some extra Mardi Gras fun facts:

• Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday”

• Mardi Gras celebrations have their origins in the ancient Roman festival, Lupercalia. It is considered the last great indulgence before the 40-day fasting period of Lent.

• Mardi Gras migrated to the United States by way of many French influences, including French explorer Pierre le Moyne d’Iberville in the Louisiana territory in 1699.

• The first Mardi Gras parade in the United States was in 1837.

• The official colors of Mardi Gras: green (faith), purple justice), and gold (power).

• Krewe: a non-profit organization or club participating in a parade.

• The first “throw” (beads or small trinkets) happened in 1871 when a krewe member dressed up as Santa Claus and tossed gifts to parade revelers.

So, how are you going to celebrate Mardi Gras? Try making a famous King Cake, decorating fun masks, or throw a party!
