Thoughts for today, #447 …. “Candy Canes …. Shepherd’s Staff …. “!!

CANDY CANES

According to folklore, in 1670, in Cologne, Germany, the choirmaster at Cologne Cathedral, wishing to remedy the noise caused by children in his church during the Living Crèche tradition of Christmas Eve, asked a local candy maker for some sweet sticks for them.

In order to justify the practice of giving candy to children during worship services, he asked the candy maker to add a crook to the top of each stick, which would help children remember the shepherds who visited the infant Jesus.

In addition, he used the white color of the converted sticks to teach children about the Christian belief in the sinless life of Jesus. From Germany, candy canes spread to other parts of Europe, where they were handed out during plays reenacting the Nativity.

As such, according to this legend, the candy cane became associated with Christmastide.

STOP THE HATE

Amazing tribute.

Take the time to watch and listen.

They were 49 vibrant, human beings.

Each had a story, each had a life.

Cut short too soon.

Victims of hate.

These are their names.

These are their stories.

Remember them.

It’s time we put a stop to hate violence

Join us and show the world that love conquers hate

For too long, a toxic combination of anti-LGBTQ hate and easy access to guns has put LGBTQ people at disproportionate risk of violence and murder.

Now, the tragic killing of 49 innocent people on Latin Night at Pulse nightclub in Orlando — young lives taken solely because of who they were — has rocked our nation to its core.

49 Top Stars Gather to Record Short Film to Honor Orlando Victims

By Michael O’Connell

(June 29, 2016)

Nobody knew what to do, but everybody wanted to do something. The June 12 mass shooting that claimed 49 lives at a gay club in Orlando, Florida, unfolded more than 2,000 miles away from Los Angeles — but the grief and frustration over an increasingly familiar narrative left many people in Hollywood searching a meaningful way to respond.

The recipient of many blind offers of service was Ryan Murphy.

The producer’s phone rang frequently in the days following the attack at Pulse, with one call coming from Human Rights Campaign president Chad Griffin. The two quickly crafted a plan to recruit 49 altruistic celebrities to memorialize each of the Orlando victims by reading a brief eulogy of their lives, editing the clips to construct a 18-minute film that started streaming live online starting June 29.

“We want to ensure that what we do is effective,” Griffin told The Hollywood Reporter on set of production.

“It’s on all of us to know each and every one of them by name and for their legacies to, in part, spur change on important issues.”

49 Celebrities Honor 49 Victims of Orlando Tragedy in Ryan Murphy-Produced Tribute

~~Published on Jun 29, 2016~~

For too long, a toxic combination of anti-LGBTQ hate and easy access to guns has put LGBTQ people at disproportionate risk of violence and murder.

On June 12, forty-nine innocent people — most of them Latinx — were killed at Pulse nightclub in Orlando simply because of who they were.

It’s on all of us to keep their memories alive, and to ensure part of their legacy becomes meaningful action to end hate violence.

Join the Human Rights Campaign and urge your legislator to support legislation that will ensure LGBTQ people are safe and equal in every community and find out how to support the survivors and families of the Orlando victims.

The day is getting closer …. One year “Legally Married”!!


An6

~~January 3, 2016~~ 

ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY

The date was January 1, 2015

We met in college in 1969.

From the start, we both knew, there was a spark.

We were then too young and naive.

We didn’t have a name for our feelings for each other then.

As life went on, it separated us and we each went along separate ways.

I like to say, like John Lennon, “life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans“.

As each experienced the next 24 years separately, we became adults and our personalities were finally completely formed.

It was by fate, and definitely written in both our “life’s books”, when we definitely reunited in 1996.

We have been together since. 

As Florida made marriage equality the law of the state, we were married legally on January 6, 2015.

You can imagine how we felt knowing that ALL would recognize our commitment to each other.

All our years together, all our joint experiences, all the rights as a married couple would be recognized as equal to the “establishment marriage”.

Even more happiness in June 2015.

Marriage Equality … the law of the land!! 

It will soon be one full year.

We still love each other as we did when we met, we have history together, we are bound for life.

Our commitment is unwavering.

Together .. till death do us part!

To start the day ….. “Reminiscing”!!


MJHXmas

~~February 1, 2015~~

I’m feeling sentimental and emotional this morning.

I spent time with family this weekend and stories that some didn’t know were shared. It’s a wonderful feeling to feel liberated from long-held secrets because of fear of rejection. 

Some may find this baffling because I have been very open here, in my “spot” about the recent ruling in Florida, where I live, about marriage equality. I have been proud to announce that I married my soul mate, my best friend and the love of my life on January 6, 2015. Something that we thought we’d never seen in our lifetime.

We have been “traveling together”, connected somehow since 1969 when we met. We stayed in touch when life got in the way. Reconnected since 1996 and together since.

So, if you don’t mind, bear with me a little and share a video, made by a wonderful friend, with you that shows some details of our story.

A fairy tale is a type of short story that typically features folkloric fantasy characters, such as dwarves, elves, fairies, giants, gnomes, goblins, mermaids, trolls, or witches, and usually magic or enchantments.

The term is also used to describe something blessed with unusual happiness, as in “fairy tale ending” (a happy ending) or “fairy tale romance”.

“As it appears in … “

I feel so blessed that life has been so good to me in spite of the ups and downs. This is it.

I’m staying here until my time on this earth is done.
