Entrecard deletes trilingual blog account


my dear friends, colleagues and advertisers,


administrators of entrecard have decided to delete my account for just ONE reason: it´s trilingual content.
*
main content is english, BUT entrecard says, quote: "If your blog has sections of German and French then it is not 100% English. 100% English means that every post is written in English."
*
i am so sad and sorry, because I love you all and the entrecards service, i love dropping, surfing from blog to blog, researching blogs, people and content to feature on veryheaven.
*
i have received over 250 ad-requests and approved them as well in the last 4 months since my membership. veryheaven has enormous PR potential for advertisers and for entrecard.
*
what shall i do? anybodoy out there with the same experince?
any idea or solution? i am just flabbergasted. thank you all.

yours sincerely,
veryheaven

Dream Insights-1


The Sliding Glass Door


Imagine that you're standing with your nose pressed against a glass door, so close to it that your breath is steaming up the glass. As you wipe away the steam, you see an ideal place on the other side of the glass. You see your dream.




Feel your feet standing on the floor on your side of the glass door, the other side of your dream. You're standing in the "Where I Am Now," where you live with everything that's happening in your life, including your attitudes and beliefs. Looking through the glass door, you see the beauty on the other side. Is this where you want to be?

Grasp the handle and slide the door open. A gentle, warm breeze comes wafting in, and there's a delicious smell in the air. As you gaze around, you see every¬thing on the other side that you want, everything that's in your dream, and everything you're committed to having. Your family is there, too, your friends, your dream home, your dream life.

All the elements of your dream are there, right on the other side of the threshold.
Notice where you are versus where you want to be. All you need to do to get to the other side is make the commitment and step across. Ask yourself, "Is this what I want? Will I commit to this?" If the answer is "Yes," lift your foot and step through and share your dream here with us.


Dream Insights

• You have to have a dream to have a dream come true.

• Without dreams, all you have is reality.

• Trust your intuition and follow your heart.

• Every resource you need is available to you.

• Believing in your dream is an essential component.

• There are signs showing you which way to go. Learn to read and act on them.

• There is often lag time between imagining your dream and making it happen.

• You have the ability to make your dreams happen but it will require your willingness to do whatever it takes.
On the other side of fear are great lessons. Stay more committed to your dream than to your doubt.
• As you complete one dream, it’s time for another. Don’t ever be afraid to cross the finish line. There are always more dreams available.

Dahingeschmolzen bin auch ich


Mein Leib
schmolz
von der Glut
des Herzens,

mein Herz kann selbst
nicht mehr
besteh'n.

Löst oder bindet

meine Fesseln –

was ihr auch tut,

mir scheint
es schön.

Die Leute wissen,

dass ich liebe –


allein, sie wissen
doch nicht, wen!

Say Yes

Show up big, bold and outrageous. Let your creative spirit and beautiful bright light shine. Be the spark that ignites passion at home and at work. Ecourage others to do the same. To inspire means “to breathe.” And as oxygen is necessary to sustain life, so inspiration is to dreaming. Discover what moves you. Dance, sing or simply express the feeling of the moment. Relish it and own it. With your passion present, ask yourself what your dreams are.

~ Selbst Engel weinen ~



Fühlst du nicht diesen Schmérz in mir
Oh siehst du nicht ich kann nicht mehr- hilf mir
Oh schau mich an,ich bemüh' mich sehr
Was muss noch gescheh'n,dass du mich erhörst
Ich danke dir dafür,dass du mich beschüzt
Danke dir für all den Segen,den du mir gibst
Ohne dich wär mein Leben nicht so,wie es ist
Du gibst mir die Kraft zu sein,wie du es bist
Oh ich brauche dich 

Refrain x2
Selbst Engel weinen-Engel leiden
Engel fühln sich mal alleine
Sie verzweifel wie jeder andere
Fallen tief und haben Feinde
Engel weinen - Engel leiden
Engel fühln sich mal alleine
Sie verzweifeln wie jeder andere
Fallen tief und haben Feinde
Fühlst du nicht diesen Schmerz in mir
Oh siehst du nicht ,ich kann nicht mehr- hilf mir
Oh schau mich an,ich bemüh' mich sehr
Was muss noch gescheh'n,dass du mich erhörst
Ich schaue auf zu den Sternenmillionen
Wo viele von uns Engeln wohnen
So viele Tränen,die mich quälen
Wer rettet mich und all die Seelen
Die Zeit vergeht- die Kraft die schwindet
Wo ist das Licht-das uns verbindet
In deinen Augen- möcht ich lesen,was uns beide trennt 

Refrain: Selbst Engel weinen
Ich öffne dir mein Herz
Denn du befreist mich von Leid und Schmerz
Ich lass dich hinein
Denn du nimmst mir die Sorgen und wäschst sie rein
Nur du kennst meine Geschichte
Ebnest mir den Weg nachdem ich mich richte
Gibst meinem Leben einen Sinn
Und lässt mich sein,so wie ich's bin
So führe mich aus dieser Dunkelheit
Zeige mir den Weg,der mich befreit
Ich will doch nur ein zeichen von dir
Befrei' mich von all diesen Ketten hier
Die Zeit vergeht- die Kraft die schwindet
Wo ist das Licht- das uns verbindet
In deinen Augen- möcht ich lesen,was uns beide trennt
Refrain x2

~ Seek me with all your heart!








“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
A pastor began his message reading Psalm 42. He read, “As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?” He had no sooner asked the question of the psalmist, “When can I go and meet with God?” when the voice of a little child, about six years of age, loudly proclaimed, “Right now!”






At least someone was listening, and although the pastor hadn’t expected an answer to that rhetorical question, the simplicity and honesty of the child’s response was far more moving and sincere than anything anyone could have said. When can I go and meet with God? Right now! Suppose, just suppose for a moment that you were to have an audience with the Creator, the Almighty who knows neither beginning nor ending, the Alpha and Omega, the Supreme Judge of the Universe, what would you say? ”Just a minute,” you may be thinking? “All those titles sound rather scary, and besides, I don’t know what I would say.”

If, however, God is your heavenly Father, and you know that you are His child, and besides, every day you spend time in His presence as you open your heart in prayer, there is nothing frightening about meeting with Him. If you had a meeting with a business executive, say, an acquaintance with whom you do business, no doubt you would think about your presentation– what you would say and the order in which you would present your case. If, on the other hand, you were meeting a close friend for lunch, you would probably just talk in random sequence. As you thought of something important, you’d just say it, right?


Well, when you meet with God, on occasion both approaches are valid. You don’t have to prepare a sales presentation when you talk with your heavenly Father. You can just say what’s on your heart. But if the prayers of Paul in the New Testament form a pattern for our prayers (and I believe they should), there are certainly elements which should be included in our prayers. Like what?
First, the ingredient of thanksgiving. Before you ask God for anything, focus on what He has already done for you.

Sometimes this necessitates reflection, pondering God’s goodness in the past, momentarily forgetting the needs that you have. “Pray continually,” says Paul, adding, “give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:17,18). To the Philippians Paul wrote, “…In everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” (Philippians 4:6).
Next, include the element of worship and praise.

This changes your focus from what you want to who God is, and it is amazing how quickly your problems get dwarfed when you really see the greatness and majesty of the Almighty. A few moments of reflection on hymns or songs such as Jack Hayford’s “Majesty,” or the old favorite, “How Great Thou Art,” begin to liberate your downtrodden spirit.
As you reflect, search your own heart. Call this confession. “If we confess our sins,” writes John, “he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).


Then comes the petitions or requests. “We have not because we ask not,” wrote James, the half-brother of Jesus. John 16:24 commands, “Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.” “When can I meet with God?” asked the psalmist. Why not take the advice of a little boy who suggested, “Right now!” Yes, why not?

Denglish - Germisch ;)


I ask myself if I could offer you speedy instant translations of german poems into french
and english and vice versa. So I tried how well Googles translation tool would work!
Hillarious! I rolled over couch, floor and bed laughing for some good four minutes.

Laugh with me ;-) see what the widget spit out translating a german poem.




GERMAN Original

der nachtigall
leise, leise zärtlicher gesang

aus voller blüte nektar nippend,
benetzend deine durstig lippen,
leise, leise zärtlicher gesang

mit weichen federn
deinen schönen leib bedecken
im schlaf das herz, die seele
unter blütendecken wiegen
leise, leise zärtlicher gesang

sich an dich schmiegen, wang´ an wang´
die liebenden in duft und blüte fliegen,
der nachtigall leise leise,
zärtlicher gesang





ENGLISH translation

The nightingale
Softly softly, tender singing
From full blüte nektar sipping,
Wetting your lips thirsty,
Softly, softly singing tender

with soft feathers
Cover your body beautiful
Sleep in the heart, the soul
Weigh under blütendecken
Softly, softly singing tender
Cling to you, wang 'wang'
Loving in the fragrance and blüte fly,
the quiet quiet, tender gesang
