” Go out, therefore, into the main roads and invite to the feast whomever you find.  The Servants went out into the streets and gathered all they found, bad and good alike and the hall was filled with guests.”

***Mt 22:9-10***

 

 

Within this Society that we all walk our paths through this journey of life, this quote from Scripture can be spun in many different ways. This feast could be of inviting one to a wedding, as in the eyes of God, is the coming together of a man and a woman as one, out of their love of each other, while they walk through this journey in peace and happiness always and celebrating this wedding with a grand feast, for all to come together in peace and happiness as the Newlyweds have done.

The feast is not just for one to sit and stuff their face til they explode, the feast is for us all to recognize and except the word of God, recognize and except the journey of Jesus Christ here with us,  so we all can come together as one, not just in peace and happiness, but come together in unity, while showing our love of selves with each other.

Within this Society of many it is very easy for us to become lost along this journey, with all the different directions that we all turn, the life events that cross our paths with real pain and hurt that we try to suppress or bury within ourselves, the obstacles that will bruise us when we fall, then the way for which we pick ourselves up from the fall, This journey to some may seem easy, only that they have never lost faith in themselves, nor have they lost the faith in God or his son Jesus Christ. The feast is not really of a sit down meal  which we think of today, the feast is we coming together in the house of the Lord, so we all can come together as one, come together in the peace and happiness that God envisioned when he created us, which will then let us walk our paths of this journey in peace and happiness always.

We are all invited to the feast of the Lord, it doesn’t matter of who you are, there is no discrimination in the eyes of the Lord, there is no putting one self above another in the eyes of the Lord, all this for which we have become accustomed to within this Society, really does not exist in the eyes of the Lord, only within our own little eyes, do we see this division and the ugliness around us. This journey through life really does not have any ugly within it, as it only has beauty within it, which is the true beauty of God, Jesus Christ and all that is within ourselves. We can’t truly see the beauty within us, only because we have suppressed it deeply within ourselves. The beauty is there. The feast we have all been invited to, all we need to do is, come together as one, come together in unity, share the love of God that is within us, with all that is around us, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life in the peace and happiness, that is within us all.

 

” The feast of Jesus Christ our Lord is not about filling our stomachs with food and becoming fat, but filling ourselves with the true love of himself and then becoming better and stronger moving forward”

” With a Society of many there will be misguided information and some that will try to control everything around them”

” The one true freedom of expression is that of, understanding truly of the feast that Jesus Christ has invited us all to, so we all can move forward better and stronger”

” We the people and our little eyes are what sees the ugliness that consumes us today, we perceive many things with these eyes, time to perceive God’s true love that is within us all”

” Let’s see a feast not just of food we eat, but a feast can also be of, all of us coming together as one, in peace, happiness, love and unity”

 

The American Bald Eagle

The American Bald Eagle…… a beautiful bird so big and majestic,

The Eagle sits a top the tree’s and looks down on the land,

The white head, the gold beak with features like no other,

The Eagle is a symbol of the United States showing strength at every turn,

The Eagle flies through the air with the greatest of ease in search of food,

Then the Eagle swoops down and grabs a fish with the powerful Talons,

America is a strong country through all the diversity within the border walls,

It’s only fitting to have such a strong bird to represent this great country of America,

The Eagle flies high and proud as it soars through the blue sky,

Just as an American fighter Pilot flies with great pride for this great country,

The Eagle perched high above the tree top protecting the land,

Just as the United States Air Force flies the skies over this great country,

There is so much beauty within this great country of America,

With the American Bald Eagle adding even more beauty for all to see,

Natures beauty is all around us so we can enjoy throughout this journey,

With a big part of that beauty being the Eagle flying the friendly skies,

We walk our paths along this journey of life,

With the Eagles flying high above us and watching over us,

The Eagle rules the wild blue yonder with it’s soaring grace,

so we all can see the Eagle’s beauty within Natures beauty.

 

 

” The Eagle so big and powerful, but yet so beautiful as it soars the sky with ease”

” The American Bald Eagle a symbol of the United States, with great strength as the country it represents”

” Fly high fly proud as the Eagle does and with the United States Air Force”

” The Eagle perches high a top the trees looking down to protect the land within America”

 

 

 

Discovering the America’s

In the day and age of this Society and within all the hate and ugliness that engulfs us all as we walk our paths, through this journey of life, this day celebrating Christopher Columbus, is a day that we should always honor, as only God know’s, what might of happened to this land we call the, United States of America.

With all the disrespect going on and all the tearing down of symbols, that has made all within this country strong today. This is one day that should always be respected cause without it, nobody truly knows of what could of been, of all our legacies today. Back in the days of Christopher Columbus, true they didn’t have all the technology we have today, but they did have maps and they charted their course with those maps ( something of today that most can not do), they had no cell phones, but yet they were very much connected with the World and where they had come from. Life back then was very different and there are some things we could learn of that time, so we here in this Society can move forward better and stronger.

Yes Christopher Columbus is a holiday here in America, but it is a holiday that isn’t celebrated by all within this country as it should be. Columbus day is of very important to all of us, as Veterans day is next month,  both these days have a huge significance in all our lives, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Columbus set sail in search of a better land for a better life, he had a crew aboard his ship that worked hard daily, they had no engine to power the ship, but the sails up above, captured the wind to power the the ship to move forward in a natural wind energy way. Yes they also had their struggles and bad times back within the Society they walked their paths, just that with all the technology of today, our struggles and bad times have become a lot more sophisticated. Just the weapons alone of their time, they used to defend themselves, were not like they are today, the ship vessels of today are way more advanced and the list goes on. Now very true that the people of that time also struggled through difficult times, but with all the advancements of today, our struggles, I guess you can say………… have also become more sophisticated as well, but….. the struggles are in reality no different, just that between all the technology and the fact that we the people, have become so dependent on the technology, only seems as if we have it harder then they did.

Two very different Societies so we may seem, only because of the technology advancement of today, but these two Societies are very much the same if we only looked deeply into what we see. Now some may say we have it harder today, it is all relative as it is we the people that have made it harder then it really needs to be. In many ways the technology has made our journey here so much easier, then the times of Christopher Columbus, it is we the people and our actions, that have made all our paths of this journey, look harder than it really is. Throughout this journey of life, we all live our lives and there is no life that is more important than the other, just that we the people, think that we ourselves are more important than each other. Back within the times of Columbus, they helped each other more, as today it is a ” me against the world” mentality and we think we are alone with our struggles. We have lost the true feelings of God’s love within us and the the true empathy deep within our souls, some want to take God out of everything we see, but God is everything we truly are, some want to take away our National symbols or disrespect the symbols with their actions, when you show disrespect the symbols of this great country, there are two groups you are truly disrespecting, one being the Veterans that fought and died so we can be free here in this country and the other is, Christopher Columbus and his crew, for discovering this great land. So before you try to take away from the history of this great country, let’s look deeper into what we see, let’s think of the reaction, before we even take action along our paths, let’s respect everything around us, including respecting each other more, show more empathy and love for one another, so we can walk our paths through this journey of life in the peace and happiness we all deserve.

 

” Christopher Columbus is a holiday that we have lost all respect for the true meaning of this day”

” There is so much disrespect in this society, we have lost what true respect really means”

” Technology yes has made our lives better, but in many ways it has made us all lazy to walking our paths of this journey with any strength”

” It is the actions of some, that make all our actions difficult to make”

 

The Thrill of Victory……or the Agony of Defeat

IMG_20150104_124946

To honor the late Stuart Scott and to pray for all those who suffer this dreaded disease, plus with Breast cancer awareness this month, I thought this great quote could  rise once again. Stuart worked for the sports station ESPN for a long time, before this dreaded disease, finally took him from us. This quote by him was said during the yearly Espy awards, which he was honored with the lifetime achievement award. What makes this quote so great is, the fact you can tweak a few words and the quote takes on a whole new meaning.

Take out the first line and replace it with, ” To win playing the sport for which you love”, now you have a quote that will always live throughout the test of time, There are a lot of good quotes out there, what makes a quote great is, the tweaking of a word or two, giving the quote a whole new meaning, to inspire us as long as we walk a path through this journey of life.

Nobody ever wants to go through the Agony of defeat, but in able to experience the thrill of victory, you first have to be able to lose correctly, then you can respect the win, with a feeling of  pride.  True competition is missing within the World of sports today, it has been replaced with the feeling of ” I play for me so I can be rich” Yes sports today has become ” the world of Greed”, as the loyalty for players sticking with one team, just isn’t there anymore, then you have the owner’s of the teams dishing out big bucks to bring in certain players with good talent, so they can win Championships. True winning of Championships goes a lot deeper than buying a team, true winning of Championships gives you a feeling that is second to none, when it comes to having pride at what you do and when you learn to lose correctly, you then respect the winning, all day everyday.

With all the Hatred and the Ugliness that has consumed us all today, maybe a little theory here. that could be quite possibly the culprit of all the negativity? Sports is supposed to unite us as one, so we can be a Champion at whatever we want to do, but instead of uniting us, it is dividing us, with all the greed there is to be had, for playing a simple game, of whatever sport you chose to play. Then when you win multiple Championships, now others become jealous and will hate, just because you win all the time, now when you play a sport you love and you become great at it, others then get jealous and whine at every chance they get.  Is this fair treatment of each other? Absolutely not, Although if you want to try to be the best you can at whatever sport you play, then work hard, in becoming the best you can within the sport you love.

There is only one player today that plays his sport for the love of the game, has true loyalty for the team of which he plays for and isn’t in it just to get a fat pay check, Tom Brady is that player, he has only played for one team and brought that team five championships. so instead of other teams trying to dethrone the champs, they then take the easy way out and drive a wedge of hatred into the sport, which then divides further all who play the sport.

Sports when played the right way, brings us all together in Unity, players who play a sport for the love of the game, instead of the fat paycheck, then become role models to the young that watch them and then, try very hard to be like their role models, so they also can play a sport for which they love.

 

” The agony of defeat is what gives you the good feeling of the thrill of victory”

” Some quotes are a dime a dozen, but a great quote will always be priceless”

” Play a sport for the love of the game and unite all that are around you, instead of being consumed by greed and dividing the sport you play”

” Sports is supposed to be called the great unifier, but instead they are known as the great divider with all the hate and the ugliness”

 

The natural Grieving process…….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

We all walk a path through this journey of life, even though the paths we each take may be different, there are many things along the paths we take, that are very similar and Grieving is one of those things. Now we all may Grieve differently with some that take longer than others, but the whole natural process of Grieving, is all the same no matter of who you are.

To Grieve properly is something that is very important to each of us, as when you don’t Grieve properly, then you open yourself to a slew of issues later on down the path in which you walk.  There is no set way to Grieve, nor are there any textbooks on how to Grieve, it is all on you the Individual and what is comfortable and natural.

When we lose a loved one, we then celebrate their life, by gathering in a Funeral home to honor our loved one, we talk among others and share great memories of our loved one, we tend to find that each of us have our own stories of the same person, which is totally part of the power that the Grieving process holds to each of us. This is how we have closure that helps us heal, with our loss, so we than can move forward with strength, as our loved one would of wanted us to. Closure is an important part of the Grieving process and without it, we then do not Grieve properly, leaving us with a void within our hearts. I remember when my Papere passed away, I was living far away and couldn’t come home to join family at our time of loss, for me the closure wasn’t there, so my Grieving wasn’t of what it should of been, so when I did come home and went to visit my Mamere, I expected him to be sitting in his favorite chair, when he wasn’t there that is when the reality of his loss hit me and flooded me with great emotion. The whole Grieving process is important and vital to each of us and without it, it leaves a big void within our hearts, that we then do not heal properly moving forward.

In times of a sudden tragedy like that of the shooting in Las Vegas, now you have a Grieving process that starts unexpectedly, People now have to mourn their loved ones sooner than what they totally expected. These people are hurting deeply of which their lives have been turned upside down, to these people their journey has been stopped, cause now their void within their heart has become so big, that they need to heal it, before they can move forward along their path. The last thing these people need to hear is, our so called leaders turning this great tragedy into a political shouting match. Let these people Grieve their loss naturally so they can heal their hearts. We as a Country have to respect the Grieving process of others, as this is also part of the Grieving process, this is how we all move forward better and stronger along our paths of this journey through life.

Now as important as the Grieving process is, so is the process for the ones that are still in the Hospitals healing their wounds from the tragic shooting event. These people are hurting deeply as well and the last thing they need, are our so called leaders turning this event into a Political shouting match. The unfortunate part of this Society is, we tend to Politicize everything, there is nothing we do along our paths that isn’t spun in a Political way, this is a part of all our paths in this Society that needs to change and be fixed. The process to start fixing this Politically correct Society, starts at the top with big Government, starts at the top within the big Corporate companies, as these are the ones that pay big money to those in Government, so they can get their favors and collect their big profits. Everything starts somewhere, so when we want to change for the better, we have to start at the top, change the process of the so called leaders, then work our way down the chain, so we all can change and move forward along our paths better and stronger.

Shooter’s like this sick demented Individual in Vegas started out their path of this journey through life very much the same as all of us, but something in his life went south, something made him have these strong negative thoughts within his head, of which he buried it deeply within, instead of addressing it, fixing it, so he can move forward in a positive way. We all at one point in our lives along our paths have had something go south for us, something that has tried to take control of who we truly are, but the difference between most of us and the ones like the Vegas shooter, is we addressed what we needed to address, then fixed what we needed to fix, so we than can move forward better and stronger, as in the case of the sick and demented ones, they buried their true feelings deep within, they buried that something so deep within, that they then let the negative thoughts take control of who they are, which they then became someone for who they truly were not. We are all Humans walking a path through this journey of life, even though the journey is the same, we all take a different path in the journey, but as we address what we need to address, fix what we need to fix, then we all can walk this journey better and stronger and live within peace and happiness always.

 

” Grieving is a process we all go through in our journey and we all Grieve in our own way”

” The sudden loss of a loved one has us Grieve sooner then we expected, which leaves a void within our hearts”

” A tragedy like that of what happened in Vegas needs us all to grieve properly and respect each other as we Grieve in our own way”

” True there are some sick demented ones out there, but we are all Humans that need to adjust and change what we need to, fix what we need to, so we can move forward better and stronger”

 

A Country in need of proper Grieving……..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

With the most recent tragic shooting in the rear view mirror, let us all not only pray for Las Vegas, the victims and their families, but let us all pray for each other throughout the World, so we then can heal from all this hate and ugliness that surrounds us today.

The shooting in Las Vegas was not only a Heinous crime, but a crime of pure hate against us all, that walk a path through this journey of life. This person that carried out this shooting spree, I can’t even call a Human Being, as this person targeted many in cold blood and proves to me that, this person has lost who he truly was, totally lost the true feeling of God’s love deep within his soul, not to mention, the fact that he showed zero empathy of himself or anybody around him.

May God bless those that perished from such a horrific crime in Las Vegas and may God bless their families, as they try to heal from this tragedy. There are many within the hospitals of Vegas now that are healing their wounds, but will they ever heal their minds from such a tragic night? That is a question that only they can answer, as they are the ones that, went from a night of much happiness, to a night of horror which they will never forget and with that said, let us all pray for them in their time of healing, so God can work his magic for them to come back and join us within our Society, as good or better than they once were.

Now some may blame this on a gun? The blame really needs to be placed on the sick deranged Individual, that not only thought and planned this out, but a sick deranged Individual that not only lost his way or who he truly was, but a sick deranged Individual that, lost the true feeling of God’s love within his heart and soul, lost the true feeling of empathy deep within his soul, as if he most likely didn’t feel any empathy, because he then would never of done what he did.

Shame on our elected officials that instead of letting people Grieve properly after such a tragic event, instead they immediately put a Political spin on the event, which shows nothing but, we have some so called leaders that care nothing for nobody but themselves and proves further that, they can not do their jobs properly and need to go and make room for another elected official in their place. that will actually do the job. Now with that said, President Donald Trump going to Vegas and visiting the injured in the hospital, not only showed compassion and empathy for them, but showed that without a doubt, he is a great leader and may God bless him, so he can lead us all here in America to the promise land, so we all can be better and stronger moving forward.

Another factor that really needs to be addressed within this Society, that was front and center during this terrible and even now is, the fact that the so called media and the ones that write and report on the news, really need a big slap in the back of the head, so they can smarten up and actually learn to be a true writer once again. ” Fake News”!!! Um……… maybe more like people that have put their own agenda, ahead of the true facts, then twisting around the words of other’s, to fit within their agenda. Because your person did not get elected into the office of President, doesn’t mean you need to create fiction, instead of writing of true fact. Those of us writer’s like myself are getting bad names, simply because you knuckleheads within the media, can’t even do your jobs correctly anymore. Writing is an art form, that when done correctly makes one feel good, when they create true words, that captivates and makes others feel good as well. When you write for your publication just to keep an agenda, your not being a true writer and just maybe you need to change your line of work? True writing is not about deadlines and agendas, true writing is all about creating words with feelings, not just words that makes you the writer feel good, but makes your audience feel good as well and when there is no feeling involved, then your not really writing, all you are doing is putting words on paper, so you than can put the greed within your pockets.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, part of this journey is going to have some tragic events that will come to us, we need to be able to grieve properly, so the whole grieving process, will and can help us become better and stronger moving forward. Now it is true that we as Humans will never forget those we are closest to when they are taken from us, which makes the whole grieving process that much more important, so we can heal ourselves, get back on track and continue the journey moving forward better and stronger. A big part of the grieving process is, each one of us showing our true love of one another with each other, as well as showing our true empathy with each other as well. It is not about spinning a tragic event political, it is not about putting twisted words on paper for an agenda, so you than can put greed within your pockets, that is not God’s vision as he created us. We as Humans have screwed up totally of what God had envisioned for us, which is why we have so many tragic events within this society, We only think of ourselves and do for ourselves, only because the love of God, our true empathy and our compassion for one another, is buried so deep within us. We need to dig down deep and retrieve it once again, so we all can move forward better and stronger, within the peace and happiness, that God envisioned for us, when he created each one of us, from the beginning of Mankind.

 

” The true grieving process is full of love and empathy, it is nothing about agendas or greed”

” True leaders are like President Donald Trump, a leader does not spin a tragedy for their own agenda”

” Writing is an art form that shows true creativity, it is nothing about twisting words to make good on an agenda”

” God’s vision in this journey through life, is all about love, peace and happiness, it is nothing about greed or agendas”

 

Politics/Political Correction are one in the same

gillette

Today as we all walk our path through this journey of life and within this Society of many, there is nothing or anywhere we can go or do, that Politics or Political Correction are front and center, blocking us from walking in true peace.

You walk down the street and no matter where you turn, someone or something is being turned to Politics, that same walk down the street and whatever word/words you say, are now being used against you, as some around you say they take offense to what you have said? This whole Society in general has become weak, simply because, we have no clue of what constructive criticism is anymore? When you hate something or someone, instead of actually having a reason to base your hate on, you simply call them a “Racist” because it is the easy way out, no body wants to put in the work anymore, to fix what they need to fix and become stronger moving forward, not too mention the fact that we all have become engulfed by all this crap, instead of truly being of who we are.

Everything we do today, no matter what it is, becomes Political. Even the way we put our foot down to the ground to take a step, as then there is someone that will say, that your step was too big or maybe to heavy of a step? Everything no matter of what it is, gets flipped into a Political conversation, then it will always turn very ugly within an argument. When this World of Politics/Political Correction gets brought into the World of sports, now is the time we stand up and say enough is enough, instead of taking a knee in protest.

Sports is supposed to be played by Individuals that have a great talent for the sport they play. Sports when played correctly is enjoyed by the fans who watch their favorite sport being played. Then within the sport being watched, the fan then develops a favorite player, that they connect with and enjoy watching them play. Sports is suppose to be the great unifier that brings large amounts of people together as they watch their favorite player and team. Sports and Politics do not mix and should never, be brought into the same stadium.

Everything today even the small talk we engage in, will always be brought to debate, a lot of times these debates happen so fast, it catches us off guard, then has us all turn on one another, simply because we don’t like the tone of the conversation, these debates no matter of how big or small, are always turned Political, no matter of what the topic may be? Some will talk of a topic in one way, while others talk in a different way, then there is no compromise, as the two sides alienate from each other, without coming together and agreeing as best they can, which then has the two sides leaving in anger and not within peace and happiness.

Politics is everywhere around us and within everything we do, Politics also takes the fun out of all we do, then you add in this Political Correction and being afraid to truly express ourselves  and who we truly are, for the fear of offending someone, now over the time of us all walking our paths of this journey, you then end up with a troubled Society, that simply can’t walk any path of this journey, in the peace and happiness, which it is supposed to be.

 

” Politics and Political Correction are one in the same and should never be brought into the sports stadium of any sport”

” Taking a knee instead of standing tall only shows all disrespect instead of helping us all to move forward better and stronger”

” When you take offense to something, it is never good to reply by disrespecting anything”

” We are a troubled Society that is in need of a major fix, to be able to move forward within peace and happiness”
