Color Away Winter Blues

To uplift your spirits think about decorating your home in colors reflecting the sun; the warm colors of red, orange, and yellow. These colors evoke the images of fire and heat, enhancing feelings of warmth and happiness. 


The colors of red overcome depression, encourages activity and escalates body metabolism?

There is some feed back about the color Red. The rage a bull feels in seeing a red cape! Some people say they feel the same way when seeing the color red, anger! There was even a newer one, of Food stores using red in their deco, so as to have people buy more food, as the color red makes people hungry?

Pastel colors are found calming. Pinks are used even in prisions to calm down anger.


Oranges brings joy and heals grief?


The yellows stimulates your mind, clears your head from headaches, and reduces depression? What about you?


There is no need to paint your home. Just add decorative accessories with these colors like candles, tablecloths, pillows, sofa covers, etc? Add other accessories to bring happiness into your home by using curtains, instead of blinds to filter in light and brighten up a room. Place flowers and plants around your home to bring in the fresh smells of spring and summer. By decorating your home, you change the mood of depression towards a positive serenity.

Catch some Zzzz’s
People naturally want to sleep a little bit more during the winter. But with all we have going on, sometimes sleep is the first thing to go. With a little time management, and some self-discipline, you can meet your shut-eye needs. Aim for 7-8 hours each night, and try to keep your bedtime and waking time consistent. That way, your sleeping patterns can normalize and you’ll have more energy. Try not to oversleep—those 12-hour snoozes on the weekend can actually make you MORE tired. Don’t forget naps! A short (10-30 minute) afternoon nap may be all you need to re-energize midday.

A New Look at the Book of Job .... [not talking about working or jobs]

I usually do not stop to listen to anyone preaching these days. But something he said as I surfed the channels caught my ear. A refesher course about the Book of Job and Job's life. 

Elohim G-d did not say he wished us any harm or would not care about us. Or send bad things on us, even. This is where people always ask, Why do bad things happen to good people?

Who wished bad things on Job? Who made bad things happen to Job? A 'know it all', fallen angel thats who. Judging others , fault finding, speaking evil of others, this angel did it all. Took everything Job owned, children, health, home. Sent destroying storms! Jobs good friends came to sit with Job. But what did this fallen angel do for most of the 40 chapters? Spoke through Jobs friends, changing their minds on how they really felt from the heart at the begining. So as to judge Job and say that Job did something wrong in his life, to deserve all  the terrible things that came his way. 

Why? The fallen angel wanted Job to curse G-d his Creator. 

But who really did all the bad stuff that happened? The 'know it all' fallen angel. 

Not Job's creator, Elohim G-d!

So there is the answer to the question..... Why do bad things happen to good people?
