What are Vitamins for the Heart? Additionally to the physical help for us the spiritual support has likewise a big meaning. ‘Vitamins for the Heart’ is the title of series in which we publish new articles monthly. The Vitamins are compositions out of texts, which we are friendly allowed by the authors to present on our webpage. Because we had many positive reactions to the vitamins we also want to present them on our webpage and hope that they will also bring many others a big pleasure.

Vitamins for the Heart
A compilation: Faith is reacting positively to a negative situation. – Dr. Robert Schuller. JThe longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.

Yet I must tell you that, in my limited experience, I have found Paul Johnson’s principle to hold true: our “idols” are as miserable a group of people as I have ever met. Most have troubled or broken marriages. Nearly all are incurably dependent on psychotherapy. In a heavy irony, these larger-than-life heroes seem tormented by self-doubt. I have also spent time with people I call “servants.” Doctors and nurses who work among the ultimate outcasts, leprosy patients in rural…

Written by Lenka Schmidt: My seemingly simple first surgery didn´t go as well as I expected and I had to have a second operation three months later. At first I was worried. I got attacked with lots of terrible thoughts of not surviving it etc. until I realized that I don´t have to listen to all this. I had the choice to shut these thoughts out and to concentrate on the positive. So, I started to plan the things I would like to do as if the surgery would go well. I only accepted thoughts of the surgery being succesful and prayed for God to take complete control of my life. When the time came to go to the hospital I had perfect peace and I even felt the presence of an angel. I just knew Someone much bigger than me had it all under control so whatever the outcome…
