The Precious Breath of Life

Good day Mars,
     It has been such a long time since I've reached out to you...I was thinking about all that is still transpiring with our young black men, who are being gunned down and fatally taking down. It would be very befitting for me to end the year with a brief reflection. It's a wonder if anybody can't help but to stop breathing, like our dearly departed brotha Eric. The injustice is suffocating us as mothers, sistas, grandmothers, aunts and daughters. To witness first hand or through the relentless broadcasting of our men being killed like animals for slaughter.
     I spoke with several young men today about being obedient to those who have authority over you, looking the part of someone who is  good and decent and stop asking "why?". I told one young man, that "they" don't care about you and consider your life of absolutely no value. So, as I continued to conveyed very sensitive underlying truths to him, I let him know that he is no longer three years old and don't need to know "why", when he is asked to do or not to do something. 
     I expressed to a group of colleagues that, yes we can, tell these young folks NO! and if their momma's got any questions then just state the circumstances and rules to be followed. Be confident, even when they don't agree, they will still respect you. After all, it's for their sons' safety and long term best interests. I cannot see any sound minded parent rallying against somebody caring for their son.     
    While there are some folk out there who could give a rats tail if our sons live or die, there are more than that who do care and want them to live. The word of life teaches us to be humble, meek and mild. I really feel in this dispensation of time why all this is happening, the Father is trying to wake His people up. Most of us have been sleep walking long enough. We need to stop throwing our sons to the wolves, to live like savages while having no regards for the lives of others let alone themselves.
     And lastly, lets continue to pray for the Brown family and community of Ferguson, as well as the Garner's and NY. There is a list and host of other families and powers that be, need to be lifted up in prayer. Let's also stop making excuses for our sons' poor behaviors, poor choices and poor grades while continuing to reward such atrocities. We must start correction when they are young and cute, because if not they will grow up to become old and ugly...

Have a blessed New Year!

Who we are & Why we are...

Good day M.a.r.s,
      It's been a long while, however I just wanted to share a thought or two with you, God's precious people called by His name.
     I am having a bible study with a sister of mine and the Lord has us meditating on Romans 12:1-3. I love this scripture as the King James version reads..." I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God..."
     The Lord God is taking us to a place to further define and perhaps also redefine, Who we are and Why we are. God inspired Paul the Apostle, to inform us once again, to not just read the word but to rightly divide the word. Paraphrasing as the scripture reads...
1. God is urging us, that is defined in the word beseech.
2. God is asking us to present (Jesus already did this) our bodies as a living sacrifice, where as in the old, sacrifices were presented dead.
3. God calls us Holy because He is! (not because of any outward look, walk or talk).
4. God calls us acceptable because Jesus is!; the chief corner stone; living precious stone. (further readings 1Peter 1:13-2:10)
5. God calls us out of spiritual conformity, (our will) that is of this world.
6. God calls us to transform our minds by daily renewing; His word will accomplish that what it was sent to do; wash us.
This is the part that We (His precious people) after having faith in all the above will be able to do:
7. Prove...what is good (God the Father), and acceptable (God the Son) and perfect Will of God (God the Holy Spirit).
     The scripture goes on, but believing in Who we are: God's precious people, makes it very plain of Why we are: God is...the great I am.
     Closing with this, none of God's commands can be accomplished by us doing nothing but abiding in Him. So STOP! please stop thinking neither let nobody have you to think that any of this comes in the form of how well someone preaches, prays, physically appears, how many times they attend church, etc...again, just stop looking at all the exteriors of man along with his labors in this world because they're temporal. So, when we find ourselves not feeling like any of the above, and we will, it is because we're not! And that's ok, because it is God all by Himself working through us, His precious people. Once and for all, fix our eyes on the prize, Jesus, who makes all scripture possible to believe & live with a sigh of relief. He will present us faultless! That's a promise that can never be broken. Let us continue to love; the greatest commandment.
 
You can make it, Jeshua did it!

She Is...

Happy Mother's Day Mars!!!
     It has been a while I know, but a lot has been transpiring in my life. However, I just wanted to share a bit of wisdom that I've acquired this past week while reading this seven day bible lesson on YouVersion bible app.
     The lesson is entitled, She Is...Mom! Day one starts with, She Is...A Chauffeur! Instinctively, it starts out about how mothers drive their children to and fro, but it ends with chauffeuring her children through life. How it is her input and impact that will take them through low valleys and into mountain top vistas.
     Day two, She Is...A Comedienne! Because she is to always find a way somehow to teach her children to laugh especially when their feeling sad; to know that life is not all bad. To teach her children at every stage that it really is more fun to serve the Lord than to be in bondage to the lies of the culture. To sing silly songs because their could never be too much music in the home. Bake cookies and play dress up. I loved this part...to have hamburgers for breakfast and pancakes for dinner.
     Day three, She Is...A Mailwoman! That every important information should come from their mother. There are no stupid questions but to teach them how to research their answers, especially if she don't have them all. Neither rain nor sleet or snow, a mailwoman delivers.
     Day four, She Is...A Cheerleader! She cheers for her children whether they're winning or losing. She is the loudest one applauding, when all else have given up and gone home. Mothers should always have kind words, even when she don't feel like saying them. What her children hear from her mouth is precious to their inclined ears, even when she doesn't think their listening. To never lay her head down without telling her children that she loves them unconditionally.
     The list could go on for days, but stops on the seventh. How ironic is the number seven; its God's perfect completion and timing.
     So, have a wonderful Mother's Day and I pray you find the opportunity to learn with me more about how many roles you play in your children's lives. Always being who...You are, because you've been encouraged by the lesson "She Is..."

You are never alone,
Jerri of Mars

Stand Up For Your Life, God's Got You!

Happy March Mars,
     So much has been transpiring since the last time I wrote to all my wonderful family. Just yesterday, my dear sistah Tina, sent out a revelatory/refreshing word from Bishop TD Jakes. It was as a precious gem, wrapped in a velvety cloth and as I gaze upon it in awe, I realize that I have to eventually pass it on to the next person. However, I can still feel its affect it had on me, I just couldn't shake it.
     On that note, I write to you today and pose the question, "Do you stand up for your life?" The life that Christ offered up on Calvary? Because, this is the time in life where if and when we do receive something, especially of value, we must know by now, that it is to ponder for a moment only to be given away. A harsh reality, and if my memory serves me right, most of us are somewhere approaching or over 40; so we should have almost all our needs met, right? Or maybe I'm wrong. Whatever the case is, standing up for your life means, to me, that you have or are still in possession of your gifts or rewards in life, not to mention wisdom, so now give to someone else or show them how to obtain the same. Secondly, are you proud of your life in Christ? You've had a job for some time now, it may not be the career you've always wanted to pursue, but it is never too late. Go for it! Some of you are going back to school, starting nonprofit foundations and some are just getting ready to wed, bless God. Some of us were slackers while in the world, so now we have the grace of God to now move forward and accomplish those dreams, now that the nightmare is over...
     Please don't look back like Lot's wife; she turned into a pillar of salt. Very briefly, Lot's wife was a foolish woman because she only cared for and about the things of this world, and not the things of God. So, we especially women of faith in Jesus must be mindful, at this stage in life, our accomplishments are not to fulfill our worldly desires but to put every effort into using them to seek the kingdom.
     Did I go there? Yes, but had no plan too. This is the Holy Spirit writing now! Any monies, gifts, treasures(personal praised items), pay raises, etc...must first be blessed and broken by the Lord God, so He can distribute according to His riches and glory. So, standing up for your life means to attain and give, in that order. If, big IF, there is anything aka monies left over then we can go and treat ourselves to something nice. Please know that the Lord wants us to have nice things, and I have seen most of you and you do have NICE things; but first give to someone less fortunate. Sign up for a worthy cause, like a walkathon, raise money too, don't  just walk.
     Lastly, I was reading Philippians 4:10, Paul talks about giving and receiving. In verse 12 he talks about having and not having...he says the secret is that whether we have or not, it will never stop us from doing all things through Christ; He will supply. Going down to verse 17, he states that he doesn't desire the peoples gifts but what he does desire is that it be credited to their(our) accounts. We give spiritually to a natural cause and God will spiritually give to OUR natural cause. When you look for people to give to your needs, you are basically telling God what He is giving is not enough, think on that.
     So, stand up for your life and give, not looking for somebody to give to you, but YOU give out of your bosom. And then God will make very sure that you reap because you have sown...that's how the harvest works; plant(sow) and pluck up(reap). Stand up for your life and fall for nothing the world has to offer, its a trap! Think Kingdom first...

You are not alone,
Jerri of Mars

Severing Tides...with You!

Hey Mars,
    This particular social media blog template that I use by Google, is not as popular as Facebook. However, the purpose I blog is to get women informed about real issues on self, God, children, health, etc...not necessarily in that order. I guess if I did this for a response or comment, I could choose FB, but for a real Facebook friend that's informative, look up, https://www.facebook.com/pages/Kids-Like-Moses-Advocacy-of-Georgia/1376989635859302
     However, I do this to bring awareness, I don't necessarily need to get any feedback. My theory is as the bible, just put it out there when they do read it, they will be informed and do better. At some point in our life we have to sever tides, especially with those people or friends that are counter productive. Starting with guys, who want to "friend" us in hopes of getting with us, Not! You weren't interested in him then and definitely not now. In some instances, there is that guy you always wanted to get with or get reacquainted, but just not like this. Not through a computer, lets try in real life situations where real communication takes place. I'm a fanatic for seeing facial expressions and listening to voices change with emotions, it speaks volumes. (Clarity, the term "get with" doesn't imply any sexual connotations, just getting acquainted remember we're saved while some are still single)
     Next, we must sever tides with our inner self, especially that part of you that displays or yearn addictive behaviors. Such as you never really had a descent conversation with any man let alone people. (Or just sick of the lack their of) Let's start by getting real with ourselves, inwardly. At first with becoming informed with real life issues. And not other peoples business, that spirit needs to be severed. But getting in your own business!
     Ask a trusted relative or real friend what is the one thing they would like to see changed about you. There's always room...Now please get ready for the response because it may not be the answer you expect because that's what truth does; exposes you. God snatched us out of darkness, into His marvelous light...(he exposed us; and showed us  compared to His son.)
     Goes back to our last entry on Fear! What are you fearful of? Most of the time it is the "truth". Please only ask one person a month, this is not the time to ask several people in a month, for the real about you. But start with the small things first. Most of the time the small things will take you to the big or enormous elephant in the room. Don't overwhelm yourself and please don't lose any sleep. Truth be told with one flaw at a time, if dealt with properly, coming from  the right person, should and eventually help you sleep better. But it has to start with you and a trusted friend or relative.
     May the Lord, who will present you flawless before His marvelous throne keep you, until next time. The way He sees us now.

You are not alone,
Jerri of Mars

The Thing About Fear Is...

Hey Mars,

     I can only share to you what is presently real for me, right? So, what has been revealed by the Holy Spirit is dealing with fear and the "what ifs" that come with it. Whatever fear is to me; may not be for someone else, but we all have them. I'm learning that I must first acknowledge my fear and chose to totally trust the Lord God with it and then totally seek Him until He takes it away.  I'm doing this bible study on Soul Detox via YouVersion Bible app. It has everything to do the our soul: mind, will, intellect and emotions. You know the very strong compulsive characteristics that drive us as women.
     The reasons behind why we always have to give our thoughts, even when they are not warranted or solicited and/or say what's on "our mind" or "give somebody a piece of our mind". Especially, when you have NO peace to give. Oh, don't get it twisted were intelligent creations because He made us after Himself. Being so, we've all been through the universal school of basic education, some pursued college, have some street knowledge, mother's intuition, book smart, bible savvy and the list goes on. However, all of our emotions can somehow or another, can either all go out the window like bath water or get entangled like a vine, when it comes down to our emotions; the predominantly operable part of our soul.
     Personally, my greatest fear is growing old alone. Yes, when I think about Jesus and all He's done for me..my soul cries out Hallelujah! But, there are days when my soul likes to ride on the arm of flesh and I start thinking... My son will one day move out, possibly get married and I will be physically home alone. Let's keep it real, our children will grow up and will move out. We thank the Lord God for that transition because this is the cycle of life. I am already in Empty Nest mode. I work, come home, cook if I feel like it and do whatever I very well please. I love it! Look forward to this time but just never pictured being a single "woman" at 50 years of age. Especially, after being a single mother for over 23 plus years...
     I've heard of stories where women have given up their life to Christ because I (raising my hand) am one of them. I made this choice with a sound mind and have never had more peace because I've had my share of dating both good and bad. I wanted to try and give my life to the Lord, so here I am! My life is good, never been better. He is the reason why I am single, but and there's that "but", I have my moments of "what ifs", yet I still believe my Father God for a mate, my Boaz! However, and without ever lowering my standards, I ask the Lord, "please let him love you just as much as I do"...let's keep in mind "the list" still stands but now I want him to be healthy, just like when were expecting a baby we would say. People will ask, "what do you want? a boy or girl?". Most of were smart enough to say, as long as my baby is healthy, it really doesn't matter. Yet, when that prayer is answered and you get the specific gender, then our smile gets just a little bigger.
     Like I am smiling now, because when I talk about my fears, first to my Father in heaven and then to you my sistahs, its all good, now I feel so much better. I know the effectual and fervent prayers are already being dispatched, thanks for the love!
Love caste out all fear,
Jerri of Mars

Misspell F-A-T-H-E-R

Hey Mars,
     I want to thank you all for following us on this past week of Practicing Awareness, and if you didn't then that was your personal choice, (but as for me and my house) we will praise the Lord! For what? You might ask, because the Holy Spirit gives us everything that we blog about. So, while none of the 15 Symptoms of Cancer that Women Ignore may have not been for you, trust that they were for somebody. At least you cannot say you were not informed, warned or therefore "clueless". We're just the messenger.
     This video is a dedication to all MOTHERS...watch and enjoy! It is so timely, a blessing from one of my greatest moms: Maxine, thank you!

Fever, Fatigue and Persistant Cough

Good day Mars,
This is the last of the 15 Cancer Symptoms Women Ignore...
     According to the American Cancer Society, fever most often occur  after cancer has spread from its original site however can also point to early blood cancers known as Leukemia or Lymphoma. Other symptoms of cancer are jaundice or change is stool color.
     So, if your fever is not associated with influenza or other infections, see your doctor for a complete medical history and battery of tests; chest X-ray, CT scan or MRI, depending on findings.
Fatigue
     However vague this symptom can be could point to cancer, as well as other problems. This can happen after the cancer has grown or in early stages as Leukemia, colon or stomach cancers.
Persistent Cough
     A cough is expected with colds, the flu and allergies and believe or not a side effect of medications. However, a prolonged cough which last for more than three or four weeks, should not be ignored. Again, see your doctor, make sure he or she do a complete medical history, examine your throat, check out your lungs perhaps through X-ray, especially if your a smoker.
      Never forget, you come first, you always have! Prayerfully, you have already started practicing making healthy choices, and being honest with yourself and others too. I hope that you have had your fill of what symptoms not to ignore. Read 2 Timothy 1:7 & 3 John 1:2 and remember God loves you...
 
Blessings to your abundance of good health,

Pain and Changes in Lymph Nodes

Good day Mars,

     Pain is something we all know too well, if you've lived long enough, however the complaining of pain and various aches could be early symptoms of some cancers or not.            
     Nevertheless, pain that persists and unexplained need to be checked out by your doctor; not you or a friend. Have your doctor take a careful account of your history and then based on that information decide what testing, if any, is needed.
Changes in Lymph Nodes
     Throughout our bodies we have these tiny organs called Lymph Nodes. They're apart of our Lymphatic System. More commonly known to have swelling in the neck and or armpits, and other places, could be symptomatic. Please Google, lymph nodes for more pics.
 
 
     If you have a lymph node that is getting larger, for longer than a month, see a doctor. Your doctor will examine you and figure out any parallel issues (such as infection) which could explain the growing lymph node. If there are none, your doctor will order a biopsy, in most cases.
      Remember, your body doesn't lie, it is a part of the All Mighty, who is incapable of such a flaw. We women are changing with each new day, except it, embrace it and encourage it! Any other behavior displayed is not healthy. Also, talk to about everything but not to everyone; get it out, you'll discover you're not alone.    
     Seek God, set realistic goals, practice honesty, make healthy choices (such as foods, exercise, people, places and yes men) and lastly be available for YOU and your son. This may sound crazy but make an appointment to see YOU! Mothers that are whole, raise sons that are whole, prayerfully. Until, next time...

Gnawing Abdominal Pain and Mouth Changes

Good day Mars,
     Today's symptoms start with a gnawing abdominal pain and depression. Omgosh ladies, these two signs are linked to depression and pancreatic cancer. Research has it that this form of cancer is crucial and silent. So, again if you have a persistent/sharp pain in your abdomen and its accompanied by feeling depressed, you need to get a checkup asap! The two links have also been found to be a poorly understood connection. Still we're not taking any chances, right? Practicing honesty and setting realistic goals is a real start to dealing with depression, the Holy Spirit said, "it's gonna be alright!"
 
Indigestion
     Now, I take medicine for this, the lil purple pill, and I've discovered the reasons why. I love to over-eat! And remember you body doesn't lie and it talks back too. That language is not English but Indigestion. I'm practicing honesty, ladies, I eat late too especially on the weekend. This also leads to indigestion. So, I watch my food intake and the hours I ingest them, so I don't suffer like I use to, thank God.
     Seriously, research has found that indigestion is accompanied by weight gain, remember that feeling during pregnancy or not; so now that you know, try to eat less and not late. Also, food allergies such as milk products can cause indigestion. I am lactose intolerant and my blood type is O-positive, which gives me a very acidic stomach. Which is why dairy is a no no! I've learned how to treat my body, by becoming knowledgeable to these important facts about myself. Also taught me about other foods that don't agree with me which also caused indigestion. Do your research on your blood type, you will feel much better.
     But having indigestion for no apparent reason could be a red flag, such as a clue to cancer in the stomach, esophagus and/or throat. See your doctor for any excessive indigestion, please.
 
Mouth Changes
     If you noticed white patches inside your mouth or white spots on your tongue, please see your doctor. This could be a symptom of a precancerous condition called leukoplakia that can progress to oral cancer. Ask your dentist or doctor what should be done next.
     All this information can be found again on a very knowledgeable site called WebMD. Continue to practice awareness, honesty and good health/hygiene.

Difficulty Swallowing and Blood in the Wrong Places

Hey Mars,
     We're making our way through the 15 Symptoms of Cancer that Women Ignore...if you have missed any just visit the blog, by clicking the link below. Or Google: Mars in NY Jerri.
     OK now, I had difficulty with this one and its not a pleasant feeling. You almost feel like your suffocating. I've known at least two ladies that found polyps on their throat and esophagus. If you have or are still experiencing this symptom, difficulty swallowing, you may have already changed your diet, perhaps avoiding foods that require chewing for more liquids like soups or shakes. And your probably losing weight too.
     But this symptom could be a sign of a GI cancer, like esophagus. Please see your doctor for a thorough exam such as chest X-ray or GI tract.
 
Blood in the wrong places
    If you've noticed blood in your toilet, urine or stool please don't assume it's from a hemorrhoid, it could be colon cancer. Mars I hope I'm not the only one who looks back before they flush and if you don't then You Should! Can't just be flushing all Willy Nelly, smile. Look back, examine and if the coast is clear, then flush!
     If you are menstruating that's normal but please if otherwise consult your doctor for a colonoscopy or have tests ran for bladder or kidney cancer.
     Coughing up blood should be looked into very seriously. One occasion of blood in the wrong place may not point to anything, but if it happens more than once, please seek your physician.
     Remember, to practice being aware and not foolish. I have spoken with plenty of women who've had all kinds of symptoms but do absolutely nothing. And let's not rule out those who think not even talking about cancer...let's be real ladies. Precaution is vital if ignored could be fatal, and this is not the will of God concerning any of our lives. We must be sharp...
     Let's continue to practice being honest first with ourselves then we will find it much easier to be honest with our sons, family and others. Practice really hard towards being healthy this year, if I am not mistaken all of us are getting older; our spring chicken days are fading fast. Now I know some of us don't even look our age, some don't even feel like it half the time but over exert yourself and watch that body start screaming loud and clear, lol.
     I love you all but you know who loves you best...Jesus!

Unusual Bleeding and Skin Changes

Good day Mars,

     This is in and around my age demographic: Menopause (pre, during or post). Women in this category tend to ignore "between-period bleeding" and could possibly be bleeding from the GI tract, which is mistakenly thought to be from their period. But if this between-period bleeding happens to be typically regular, still check it out. So does bleeding after menopause, this could be signs of endometrial cancer and if from the GI tract could be a symptom of colorectal cancer.
     Please know what normal is for you. If you never spot between period and you do, this could be abnormal, but to another it might not be, so please see your GYN. Your doctor can perform a standard pelvic exam, ultrasound or biopsy. We should also start the habit of marking our calendars of any unusual timings too. So we can be precise with our findings to our doctors.

Skin Changes
     If you're a woman who have moles, you should know to especially look for any changes--a well-known sign of skin cancer. But we should also watch for any changes in skin pigmentation. Such signs like sudden skin bleeding or excessive scaling, should be looked into by your doctor. Especially, if these changes have been going on for several weeks, because your keeping a watchful eye and marking your calendar. Whatever, is urgent to you but never wait for an emergency.
     Remember, to practice being healthy and being honest with yourself. Also, your body is not capable of lying to you. We need to remain healthy for our sons, so they can be too.

Practicing Awareness,

Weight Loss

Day One Mars,
     I know we all would like to involve ourselves deeply into this phenomenon or in my case a day to day struggle: Weight Loss. To make it plain...If you are experiencing unusual weight loss this should not be ignored. Especially, if you have not exercised or decreased your eating habits. 
     What is unusual? More than 2 lbs a week; clothes are becoming too big, all of a sudden. In most cases, nothing is subtle; we've probably just ignored it because honestly some of us can or would love to lose a few pounds of fat. Say bye to the bulge and pinching inches.
 So, if you are honest with yourself, remember to practice this skill, then too much weight loss requires going to see your doctor, stat!
     In the meantime, if you can and desire to lose weight the healthy way, remember to practice this skill too, then start small. Whatever small is to you, only you can decide that. But if you need a hint, try parking/walking a block away from your destination instead of wasting energy (both physical and in gas) on circling said block for a closer parking space or like most of us, asking the Lord to open up a space, in Jesus name, now that's funny! The Lord said, "No, get out and walk", because that was His perfect source of exercise and mode transportation. And Mars, don't you dare think, well there were no cars back then. But there were mules. I still believe Jesus would have walked so He did or He would have drove pass all who needed Him. So, get out and walk! beloved.

Let's Start with Awareness

Good day Mars,
     Okay good people, let's start the year off right by doing the hard things first. I will start by saying I suffer with lower back pain, reflux, and other gastric problems and now more than usual potty visits. I am very in tune with my body so any unusual activities are sought out thoroughly. Did I fail to mention, I just turned 50! And in spite of my GYN diagnosis; I'm nowhere near menopause, yea right...I've experienced some signs. Can somebody say "Hot flashes".
     So, I'm awakened this morning about 4:15AM with a nudge from my bladder to potty; yes an interruption in my already unsteady sleep. On any given night, I can average about 4 hours of sleep, but I also take naps during the day on vacations and after work when I'm not. Oh I also failed to mention, I was also feeling nausea along while attending this "unusual urge" to urinate. So, after I go to the bathroom, some bouts of burping, then I felt better. Note to self: Have my Gastroenterologist prescribe me some Pantoprazole Sodium DR aka Prevacid; you know the little purple pill. Works wonders...
     Okay, I can't go back to sleep so I start to hit the Internet, preferably WebMD.com.  I love this site, I research Bladder Infections: Symptoms, Causes, Diagnosis and Prevention, etc. I run into various information and can agree with 2:5 symptoms I have. This study led me into Uti (urinary tract infection), Kidney Stones and yes Cancer. Then there it was, 15 Cancer Symptoms Women Ignore. So, while reading and deciphering what applied to me or not, I thought, thank you Holy Spirit. I will dedicate the next week or so to given you, Mars, some markers, precautions and/or things that might make you say Uhhhmmmm or not.
     This is a good start for the year right? To know what the latest scientific researchers are saying, symptoms to look for, just in case in and to spark awareness. Remember, knowledge is Power! Please read and be honest with Your symptoms or not. Often times we think of what others might have instead of ourselves which is good, but let's put us first, its ok! Remember we have sons, if mom's not healthy then they're not either and therefore worry sets in. I will start the list tomorrow, so look out and be honest. Your body doesn't lie, listen to it...

Awareness,

Welcome...2014!

Many blessings to all of You! I have no clich├ęs for the new year but my prayer is that we do our very best to love each other in spite of the flaws we see in each other. And uphold the two greatest commandments...in this way we will do better at pleasing our Lord!
With Love,
Jerri of Mars
