Drink in Merriment

Day 8 Countdown to Christmas

Did you know that dark chocolate reduces blood pressure? Here is a simple recipe:

3/4 cup of milk in a saucepan over medium heat until just before boiling.  Remove from heat and transfer to a large mug.  Stir in 1 ounce coarsely chopped bittersweet or semisweet chocolate pieces.  Let it stand about 30 seconds then stir to combine.

It is no wonder that is Santa’s favorite drink!  So grab  a cup, sit by the fireplace nd snuggle with that special someone as you enjoy those special quiet moments….

Hot cocoa is not just for Santa!  I love to be able to sit in our family room after a long day of work and watch a movie as a family and serve hot cocoa.  The kids grow up fast, start a tradition and build memories while you can so that when they do grow up they have memories to share with their kids.

World Prematurity Day

Today is World Prematurity Day.  The March of Dimes describes it as “November 17 is World Prematurity Day when we focus everyone’s attention on the global problem of premature birth. Join us in raising awareness.”  Wear purple in support of pre-mature babies and raising awareness.  Many people who have never been affected by having a premature baby or know anyone that has had one, really do not know or understand the challenges that these parents and little ones endure.  Some of these babies do not make it due to the complications that they have.  Some make it and have so many disabilities that they are dependant on care for the rest of their lives and others do make it with minimal to no disabilities.

27 Miracles and A Story of Faith are supporters of World Prematurity Day to raise awareness about prevention of premature birth whenever it is possible.  But when it is circumstances beyond one’s control, what we want to ask is that you be sensitive to parents of preemies and offer love and support.  Sometimes the unspoken word means more than the spoken word.  A simple hug, a meal delivered to the home, an offer to take the siblings to school or for an afternoon of play time.

Rosie Moore, Master Bridal Consultant and event planner for 27 Miracles knows this first hand.  On October 13, 2009, she delivered a baby boy by emergency c-section, due to the health of the baby and her own.  Rosie had stroke level high blood pressure without a single symptom or abnormal lab test.  She is lucky to be alive and that she received the prenatal care needed or the high blood pressure never would have been detected until it was too late.

Today Kaleb, born at 27 weeks, 1lb and 10oz, is a growing boy.  He receives speech therapy and occupational therapy to be assist him with feeding aversions from long-term intubation and tube feedings via a gtube.  He has one kidney and still has issues with his lungs when he gets a simple cold.  But God has blessed him with energy, health and intelligence.

Rosie Moore, wrote a book called A Story of Faith.  The story of Rosie Moore, including the events preceding the miraculous birth of her son, Kaleb. Barely 1 pound, 10 ounces at birth, Kaleb is a LIVING MIRACLE from God. Readers will enjoy this short story surrounding this love story built on prayer, God’s intervention, and the wonderful gift of faith given to people of ordinary means. How God intervenes in a person’s life and how our current troubles may be a hidden blessing in your life, coming directly from the master planner. Part of the proceeds from the book goes to an organization called Nathaniel’s Hope which is a special needs ministry, to help children with special needs. Today her book is being read world wide in the United States, Mexico, Germany, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Puerto Rico and more.  Purchase your copy today to read the whole story.

The latest project that 27 Miracles and A Story of Faith are working on is the production of a Movie called A Story of Faith.  Please visit their website to learn more about the movie and how you can get involved in the movie and learn more about it.  Click on the link A Story of Faith the Movie to learn more.

Today Our Miracle Kaleb Turns 4!!

Four years ago today at 4:45am a baby boy was born at 1lb 10 oz and 12 inches long and 27 weeks.  He clung to life via life support, IV’s, medications, tube feeds, tests and was given a prognosis of less than 50% survival and if he did survive it would be with complications.  Wow a lot to handle when your wife is unconscious with her own health issues and you’re seeing your baby for the first time hooked up to monitors and you are told that you cannot touch him.  This is A Story of Faith, the journey that for 5 months and beyond Rosie and Marcus Moore would be walking.

Rosie Moore developed stroke level blood pressure of 220/110 without any symptoms physically, she was a stroke waiting to happen.  Then there was the baby, there was a reverse blood flow in the placenta, where not enough blood stream was going to the baby.  When her blood pressure was high the baby received the needed nutrients, when the blood pressure was controlled the blood flow was slow and not providing nutrients.  Both situations were bad, for mom and baby, so the doctors held out as long as they could to make the best determination to spare both lives.  One doctor said, I don’t know what to do, it is a grave situation we can lose them both. People all over the world went in to prayer, fasting and exercising their faith, awaiting God’s hand to embrace this mom and baby to do a miracle.  As you can see, that is exactly what He did.  God listened to prayers and saved them both.

Many people ask Rosie Moore, why do you keep retelling and reliving the story?  Many babies are born premature and make it, why is Kaleb’s story so special?  What is so special?? It is in her book A Story of Faith by Rosie Moore, but a snip of it, Kaleb was not even supposed to be conceived according to modern medicine.  The Doctors said it was impossible.  So you ask why tell the story?  Because there are many moms and dads out there that are in the same situation without hope of someone encouraging them and praying for them that can encourage them and say God is in control.  Because there are women out there battling breast cancer at stage 4, that don’t know that they have other people who were in the same situation and can encourage them, this story of survival is in the book.  Because there are single women out there waiting for the right man to come along and lose hope that the right man will come along.  Because there are single moms struggling in life that see no end in sight to their struggles, without knowing that there will be light at the end of that struggle.

This is how Rosie Moore of 27 Miracles, runs her wedding and event planning business based on love, honesty and faith to help those in need have a miracle event!  God gave her life and hope, Rosie wants to give back, love and hope to others.

It is not Rosie Moore’s job to convince you to read the book, to donate towards the movie or provide hope.  It is her job to just share the stories with you and allow you the readers and viewers to do as you feel with the testimony that you are seeing. However if you want to discuss things further with her, you can reach her through her website at http://www.27miraclesbyrosie.com

Here is the original story of Kaleb…..

A few weeks ago Lauren Johnson of Fox 35 Orlando News interviewed Rosie Moore and a doctor at Florida Hospital about Kaleb, then she invited her back with Kaleb to come on the show this week and share her story live.  You can watch both videos here ..Click on the picture
