Serial Killer Is Moved To Tears When Relative Of One Of His Victim’s Does This.

We can’t even fathom how someone who has performed such murderous acts can remain unmoved while the families of his victims talk about how they feel. The criminal described is Gary Leon Ridgway, also known as “The Green River Killer,” and he’s performed some of the most atrocious acts that I’ve ever heard of. This video states that Ridgway pleaded guilty to murdering 48 women in the US. Further research suggests that the number of victims has risen since this video was made. According to the “Gary Ridgway Biography” Ridgway told investigators he killed as many as 60 women along Route 99 in south King County, Washington.”

 

Ridgway was born in Salt Lake City, Utah where he lived for most of his life. Throughout the course of his life he was married three times. His biography referenced above explains, “Ridgway’s slayings began in 1982, when young runaways and prostitutes began disappearing from state Route 99 in south King County, Washington. He brought many of them to his home and strangled them, then left them in woodsy, remote sites. The first few bodies turned up along the now-notorious Green River.” Despite Ridgway’s marriages and his practice of religion, he still sought frequent business with prostitutes

 

This video reveals part of his sentencing after Ridgway pled guilty to 48 counts of murder. I could not fight back the tears, when the elderly man took the podium and finally broke Ridgway into showing some kind of emotion. The message to take away from this video lies within the old man’s heroic act of forgiveness. I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to forgive someone like Ridgway for taking away a loved one in such a horrific manner. Forgiveness is indeed a very powerful thing.

Priceless Reaction To ‘Bun In The Oven ‘Pregnancy!

This wife wanted to surprise her husband with the good news of a positive pregnancy test, so she decided to be clever about it. She hid the pregnancy test inside a bun… inside an oven. Get it? Well her husband didn’t quite seem to make the connection! It is so hilarious! She set up her camera to catch his reaction, and then asked him to take a look in the oven to see what was there. His response was pretty priceless! That poor man didn’t know he was being video taped, and ends up crying in front of the camera from being so happy! They are going to have a new little person in the family.

Too Blessed To Be Stressed! 7 Ways To Shake Stress

What is stress? Stress hormones (adrenaline, noradrenaline, and cortisol) are secreted, your heart pumps faster, blood pressure rises, breathing quickens, perspiration increases, and digestion slows. Taking physical action exhausts the stress hormones. But when stuck behind a desk or in a car, with one tense situation after another, stress chemicals remain in the bloodstream. This causes headaches, creating further anxiety. Eventually your system is so overloaded that a minor incident can prompt a crisis.

Stress makes you unhappy, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, feelings of inadequacy, pessimism, and dissatisfaction with life are all part of the picture. It can make you difficult to live with because people under stress are often irritable, irrational, and hostile. It can affect your work performance — you may be forgetful, lethargic, and unable to concentrate or make decisions.

We live in a culture where stress dominates many of our lives. It is easy to become overwhelmed with our many responsibilities. Few of us know how to deal with these stresses in a healthy way and we continue to push ourselves and those around us. Calmness and peace are available to us as we seek God’s direction each day.

Here’s 7 effective ways to beat stress in your life:

blesses

 

Get a Hobby

Have you ever enjoyed an activity so much that you lost track of time? That’s the theory behind using hobbies as stress relief. Participating in pastimes you enjoy, like cooking and writing, gives your mind gets a break from anxiety and tension because you’re focusing on a completely unrelated activity. A hobby is helpful because it gives another outlet to feel good, relaxed, and confident

 

Be Money Smart

One of the biggest drivers of stress is financial woes. Not coincidentally, health problems are the major driver of bankruptcy, and then bankruptcy cycles back to be a major driver of more stress-related health problems. That’s why it’s important to create some kind of emotional comfort zone with money — that is, just the feeling that you have some sort of nest egg can ease your stress. And that’s why socking away 10 percent of your income every month (or at least $100 every month) can start the process of giving you a backup plan. And, of course, with credit card debt exceeding the national debt, having a good frame of mind about your plastic is important. Use your cards for the convenience of paying your bills, not to avoid paying them.

 

Plan Ahead

Part of what makes life so stressful is uncertainty. Because so much of life is unpredictable, it helps to maintain a regular schedule and track all your responsibilities that lie ahead. Better to clutter a piece of paper with a to-do list than to clutter your brain with how-will-I-do-it-all worries. While you’re at it, the other thing you can do with your pen is a nightly gratitude journal. Write down one or more things every day that you appreciate. This helps put your stressors in perspective.

 

Quick-Fix Breathing-

Slow breathing from the diaphragm is one of the most effective ways of managing stress. Quick-fix breathing can release tension in a difficult situation. Calm and control your breathing by taking several deep, slow breaths. Return to normal breathing, then repeat. If the tense situation can’t be changed, give a mental shrug, sigh, drop your shoulders, and ask yourself, “Who cares?”

 

Meditation-

This induces deep physical relaxation and mental awareness. Sitting comfortably upright, close your eyes and relax. Focus your mind on an object — breathing out and in to the count of four, looking at an image such as a candle flame or flower, or repeating a word such as “peace” or “one” for 15 to 20 minutes.

 

Enlist the Pros

Some things are easy to do alone. But dealing with life’s major stressors isn’t one of them. In the face of trauma, depression, or grief, many of us retreat into our own thoughts and lives and become more inaccessible than a bank vault. But that’s the time when you most need therapists and support groups. Treat depression like it’s a broken leg, because it’s every bit as much of a physical problem as any other health issue.

 

Pray-

Last on our list… but by by far the most important! There are so many reasons to pray. Stress relief is just one benefit of a praying lifestyle. God’s Word is full of admonitions to pray. When you can’t count on anything or anyone else, you can always count on Him. Praying influences your state of mind, helping you relax and thereby reducing the effects stress has on various body organs. It is known to not only help reduce mental stress; it also helps beat physical stress and evens out your emotional reaction to it.
