TWIN LAKES SHARE & PRAYER
STUDY ON THE BIRTH OF JESUS
The birth of Jesus from a young mother who was a virgin, who became
impregnated when the Holy Spirit came upon her, is one of the most
celebrated and revered events in Christianity. However, throughout the
Bible, God reveals himself to the world, to Adam & Eve, Abraham, Moses
and to many more. God, not just a distant, uninvolved Creator, has always
been a relational God, opening a way for humans to know Him. We could
not hope to know him had he not made himself knowable!
If one understands that the God who created the universe... galaxies,
black holes, the Earth with plants and animals, each species distinct and
not mauled by continual ravages of mutations ... has intelligence and
power far exceeding our comprehension, then one can marvel further
still that he designed humans to have a relationship with him and each
of us is incomplete without that personal relationship. We should not be
surprised that God is so far beyond us that we cannot fully comprehend
him, but shows us his immutable characteristics: he is eternal, perfectly
good and his essence is love.
Christians believe that there is one God, not three Gods or multiple Gods.
He reveals a bit to us about his essence through Jesus as “the visible
representation of the invisible God.” He is unique in all the world religions:
no other claims to be God in the flesh. With a human birth and human
death he always existed and always will; though his body died on the
cross, his essence continued in existence. So in January we celebrate this
revelation of God, Immanuel (meaning God with us!) If you’re interested
in knowing more, read the book of John about the life of Jesus (you can
Google it!) written by a man who followed Jesus and called himself “the
disciple whom Jesus loved.” The Share & Prayer group is open to ALL
women of Twin Lakes! Contact Patty Napp at patricia.napp@woodgroup.
com or Carol Monahan at 713-305-9809. We meet through Zoom or in
person on alternate Tuesday evenings!

COMMON VITAMIN DEFICIENCIES
As we embark on the journey each day to eat and live better, take note of
the common vitamin nutrient deficiencies that are easily treated:
1. Calcium: Calcium is important for maintaining strong bones and
controlling muscle and nerve function. Signs of severely low calcium
include fatigue, muscle cramps, abnormal heart rhythms and a poor
appetite. Make sure you’re getting enough with at least three servings of
milk or yogurt a day. Other good sources of calcium are cheese, calciumfortified
orange juice and dark, leafy greens.
2. Vitamin D: This vitamin is also critical for bone health. Symptoms
of a vitamin D deficiency can be vague - fatigue and muscle aches or
weakness. If it goes on long term, a vitamin D deficiency can lead to
softening of the bones. To get enough vitamin D, have three servings
of fortified milk or yogurt daily eating fatty fish, such as salmon or tuna,
twice a week; and spend some time outside in the sunshine every day.
3. Potassium: Potassium helps the kidneys, heart and other organs
work properly. You could become low in potassium in the short term
because of diarrhea or vomiting, excessive sweating or antibiotics or
because of chronic conditions such as eating disorders and kidney
disease, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Symptoms of
a deficiency include weight loss, muscle weakness, constipation and in
severe cases, an abnormal heart rhythm. For natural potassium sources,
consume bananas, whole grains, milk, vegetables, beans and peas.
4. Iron: Iron helps your body make red blood cells. When iron levels get
too low, your body can’t effectively carry oxygen. The resulting anemia
can cause fatigue. You might also notice pale skin and dull, thin, sparse
hair. To boost iron levels, eat iron-fortified cereal, beef, oysters, beans
(especially white beans, chickpeas and kidney beans), lentils and spinach.
5. Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 aids the production of DNA and helps make
neurotransmitters in the brain. With an increasing number of vegans
and people who’ve had weight loss surgery, vitamin B12 deficiency is
becoming more common. Symptoms of severe B12 deficiency include
numbness in the legs, hands or feet; problems with walking and balance;
anemia; fatigue; weakness; a swollen, inflamed tongue; memory loss;
paranoia; and hallucinations. You can get vitamin B12 from animal
sources: eat more fish, chicken, milk and yogurt. If you’re vegan, opt for
vegan foods fortified with B12, such as non-dairy milk, meat substitutes
and breakfast cereals.
6. Folate: Folate or folic acid, is a particularly important vitamin for
women of childbearing age, which is why prenatal vitamins contain such
a hefty dose. A folate deficiency can cause a decrease in the total number
of cells and large red blood cells as well as neural tube defects in an
unborn child. Symptoms of a folate deficiency include fatigue, gray hair,
mouth ulcers, poor growth and a swollen tongue. To get folate from food,
go for fortified cereals, beans, lentils, leafy greens and oranges.
7. Magnesium: Magnesium helps support bone health and assists in
energy production. Magnesium deficiency can cause loss of appetite,
nausea and vomiting, fatigue and weakness. In more severe cases, it can
lead to numbness, muscle cramps, seizures, abnormal heart rhythms,
personality changes or low potassium or calcium levels. To help your
levels return to normal, eat more magnesium-rich foods, such as almonds,
cashews, peanuts, spinach, black beans and edamame.

EASY WAYS TO EAT MORE FRUITS & VEGGIES
The new food plate unveiled by the Department of Agriculture sends a
clear message: eat more fruits and vegetables. Here are easy ways to get
more of these important foods into your diet:
Start early: Get in the recommended five servings of fruits and vegetables
a day by eating them early with your morning meal. Add a banana to
your cereal, berries to your yogurt, veggies to your omelet.
Make them visible: Set out a fruit bowl in the kitchen or have carrot
sticks available for snacking. Take some time to prepare the fruits or
vegetables, so they are ready to eat.
Frozen is good: Frozen vegetables, such as peas and carrots, are a great
way to make sure you always have vegetables in the house.
At mealtime, think of the veggies first, not the protein: Half of your
plate needs to be filled with fruits and vegetables. Base your meals on
what vegetables you’ll have and then think of the grains and protein to
go with it.
Have fruit with your sweets: Fruits are nature’s natural candy. Puree
berries and adding them as a sauce to desserts, such as ice cream.

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
Martin Luther King, Jr., an American clergyman and Nobel Prize
winner was one of the principal leaders of the American civil rights
movement and a prominent advocate of nonviolent protest. King’s
challenges to segregation and racial discrimination in the 1950s and
1960s helped convince many white Americans to support the cause
of civil rights in the United States. After his assassination in 1968, King
became a symbol of protest in the struggle for racial justice. In 1957,
King helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference
(SCLC), an organization of black churches and ministers that aimed
to challenge racial segregation. As SCLC’s president, King became
the organization’s dominate personality and its primary intellectual
influence. He was responsible for much of the organization’s
fundraising, which he frequently conducted in conjunction with
preaching engagements in Northern churches. SCLC sought to
complement the NAACP’s legal efforts to dismantle segregation
through the courts, with King and other SCLC leaders encouraging
the use of nonviolent direct action to protest discrimination. These
activities included marches, demonstrations and boycotts.
“I Have a Dream” - King and other black leaders organized the 1963
March on Washington, a massive protest in Washington, D.C. for
jobs and civil rights. On August 28, 1963, King delivered the keynote
address to an audience of more than 200,000 civil rights supporters.
His “I Have a Dream” speech expressed the hopes of the civil rights
movement in oratory as moving as any in American history. After
his death, King came to represent black courage and achievement,
high moral leadership and the ability of Americans to address and
overcome racial divisions. Perhaps the most important memorial
is the national holiday in King’s honor, designated by the Congress
of the United States in 1983 and observed on the third Monday in
January, a day that falls on or near King’s birthday of January 15 th .

NATIONAL BLOOD DONOR MONTH
The American Red Cross urges people to share their good health and
resolve to give blood regularly, beginning in January with National
Blood Donor Month. Below are key messages that can be relayed to
donors while scheduling appointments.
• Extreme winter weather in some parts of the country and seasonal
illnesses often make it difficult for the American Red Cross to maintain a
sufficient blood supply at this time of year. Healthy individuals are urged
to give now.
• The Red Cross must collect more than 13,000 blood donations every day
for patients in need.
• Do you know someone who has never donated before? Please encourage
them to make an appointment with you. Without more donors, patients
will not have the blood they need.
• Type O negative is the universal blood type and what emergency
personnel reach for in trauma situations when there isn’t time to
determine a patient’s blood type.
• Type O positive is the most transfused blood type and can be transfused
to Rh-positive patients of any blood type.
• Types A negative and B negative can be transfused to Rh-positive or
• Save time by using RapidPass® to complete your pre-donation reading
and health history online before you come to your appointment. Get
started at RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPass or by using the Blood Donor

Gardening Tips For January
16100 Cairnway, Suite 285
• Advanced Laser Dentistry
• Digital X-Rays for reduced Radiation
• Affordable, Flexible, No interest payment options.
• Birds: Provide food and fresh water. More birds die from lack of water
than from lack of food.
• Cacti: Semi-dormant now. Reduce watering.
• Camellias: Plants may be moved. Pick up and discard fallen blooms.
• Cultivation: Changes in design may now be made, new beds dug and
old ones rebuilt. Correct defects in drainage. Incorporate gypsum into
heavy soils: repeat in three weeks. Dig granite dust, rock phosphate
and quantities of organic matter into soil. Allow time for settling before
• Fertilize: Daylilies, spuria, Louisiana and bearded irises with complete
fertilizer. Give strawberries 1 teaspoon ammonium sulfate, keeping six
inches away from plant. Fertilize pansies with manure tea or blood meal.
• Fruits: Plant fruit trees. Mulch figs with grass or straw to prevent freeze
damage to crown.
• House Plants: Water, when surface soil is crumbly dry. Wash dust off
leaves to open pores. Mist often. Inspect for diseases and insects. Reduce
water for poinsettias.
• Lawns: Remove thatch aerate, and feed with low nitrogen mixture.
• Pests: For petal blight prevention, spray azaleas and camellias as
flowers open. Spray for scale with dormant oil solution if temperature
will be above 35˚ and below 85˚ for next 48 hours. Always read and heed
manufacturer’s directions before spraying.
• Propagation: Ivy cuttings root easily this month and next. Root cuttings
of shrubs in mixture of loam and coarse sand; keep damp and semishaded
• Prune: Fruit trees in advance of new growth. Prune to groom and shape.
Do not remove too much. Remove dead wood from trees and shrubs
before spring buds swell, but do not prune spring bloomers. Prune crape
myrtles. Prune nandina and others of similar growth habit by cutting
unwanted canes out at base of plant.
• Roses: Annual pruning about the middle of February, just before the
spring buds break. To prevent later appearance of disease in the old beds,
keep garden clean of debris and weeds. Complete preparation of new
beds for roses.
• Transplanting: January is one of the best months to transplant woody
plants, both evergreen and deciduous, especially trees. Energy will be
expended on roots instead of foliage. Learn ultimate size and cultural
needs of tree or plant before buying. Consider dwarf varieties to avoid
crowding later. Group plants of similar cultural needs. Do not work wet
soil. Assure good drainage. Keep plants moist.
• Vegetables: Prepare beds, preferably raised for drainage, with about
50% humus, including rotted manure.
• Winter Protection: Expect freeze any time; plan for protection of tender
plants. Water. Remove coverings, particularly plastic, when temperature
rises. Protect low plants with dry leaves, pine needles or soil mulch, but
remove when weather warms.
