May you finally be at peace Senator John McCain, Thank you very much for your brave service in the United States Navy, as your journey through the Navy had it’s bright spots, as well as it’s dark and gloomy days. You Sir are a true Hero, as most would of cracked under all the pain and hurt you have gone through. You are exactly the type of person, for whom built this country, into the great country it has become and without men like you, only God knows of what might of become with the land of the United States of America. John McCain went from a Hero of the Vietnam war, to becoming  U. S. Senator, which he gave a huge part of himself, for the good of his fellow man, now some may not agree with his policies, or him as a person, but you simply can not deny, that he was most definitely, a true American Hero, for which we all can look up to, so we to can strive to walk our paths of this journey through life, as close to being the man that John McCain truly was.

Just as this Eagle looks down on us all, to protect and serve being the strong bird it is, now John McCain is looking down upon us all, to protect and serve us as best he can, while he appears before God, to receive his wings, which will help him get around to protect us all, for the same thing he did, while he was flying around for the Navy, doing what he loved to do.

John McCain came from a strong family with a strong family foundation, as his Dad and Granddad were both Admirals in the United States Navy, making him a third generation Navy man. After his days in the Navy ended, he then embarked on a path of Public service, which he had more than stepped up to the plate in many ways, throughout his career. John definitely lived a complete and genuine life, as a life that most only dream of. So no matter of what you think of John McCain the man, or the Politician, there is no denying that, he was a true American Hero of our time, who gave his all, for the good of us all, so we to can walk our paths of this journey through life, following the foot steps of such a great man.

This journey through life is not measured by how many years you have within it, This journey is totally measured by the life you live within the years you are so graciously given by God. When you walk your paths correctly, the journey will reward you with greatness and the one thing we so take for granted and that is, the respect we earn from all those around us, very much like the respect John McCain has earned throughout his journey. With this respect of all of us, truly has us feeling the love of God, that is deep within our souls, so we than can share this love with our true empathy, with each other as we walk our paths through this journey of life. When we walk through this journey correctly, the journey seems so simple, but when we bring all the other crap like, hatred, ugliness and corruption to this journey, is when the journey becomes very difficult for us all. So let’s take the John McCain approach as we walk our paths through this journey of life, so we all can live in peace and happiness, while we strive for greatness and the respect of all those around us.

 

” A true Hero does not look in the mirror and see a Hero, he becomes one with his actions for all those around him”

” Respect is a two way street and will never become a street of one way”

” God has so graciously given us this journey to walk our paths, it is how we repay him with our actions, that brings us much respect”

America the Beautiful

” In giving we receive, Love one another as I have loved you”

John 15:12

 

”            * O Divine Master grant that I may not so much seek

to be consoled as to console,

* To be understood as to understand,

* To be loved as to love,

* For it is in giving that we receive,

* It is in pardoning that we are pardoned

* It is in dying that we are born to eternal life

Saint Francis of Assisi

 

 

America is so beautiful, but if spend all your time within the cities of America and not venture out to where the hands of Mankind are not, you really haven’t truly been living, as you walk your path of this journey through life. Now don’t get me wrong, there is some beauty within the cities, but the beauty in places where Mankind has never touched and where Mother Nature has roamed free, to purify God’s beautiful creation, now your truly seeing what true beauty is and that true beauty, is also deep within our hearts and souls, just that within this troubled society, we don’t let it out for others to see, as we only hide it deeper within, to keep it from all the ugliness around us today.

Now with that said, we of this society are so consumed with all the hatred and ugliness all round us, that we just can not see any true beauty for wherever we look. Most of why we are so consumed I place the blame squarely on the left bias media of today, their only agenda that matters is, to bring us as much hatred and drama as they can, so hopefully we don’t see anything else around us? We the People of this society are just as much to blame, as we let this happen and take no action against their so called news, or for better words, ” Fake news Media”. These media types call themselves Journalists, but yet they have no clue on how to write from the heart and let real words flow from their brains, to their fingers and onto the keyboard, as they type their so called stories. They would rather go to a Press Conference, ask their dumb and stupid questions, then take the words of response and twist them around, so it will fit into their drama ridden agendas. The left bias Media is a big problem within this society and we the People, need to wake up and totally see through all their crap and end their drama ridden free reign of the spoken word.

The other problem we have within this society is the fact that, these so called Politicians that get voted into office by we the people, will say all that we want to hear so they can get our votes and become elected, then after they are in, they turn their backs on those that elected them, just so they can back stab and manipulate the system for themselves, as they totally lose sight of all true reality around them. Right now the entire Democratic party is so far in Denial, that none of them have a clue of what true reality is, these people hate so much of our President, that they can not even recognize him as being the President of the United States and that is sad, when you have a President elected by the people and our other leaders can’t even call him a President? President Trump has been our President for just under two years, but yet he has done a whole lot more for the American people, than that other guy (Barrack Obama) has done in his eight years combined. I will give Barrack Obama credit for one thing only………. and that is, he was a better communicator and could speak well, without being rough around the edges with his words. Even with the ” Witch Hunt” investigation going on, President Trump continues to work hard and achieve a lot of good for our economy, but yet nothing has really come out of this investigation? Well I am calling out those of this investigation and seriously think about investigating further, not only the Clinton foundation, but the Clinton’s in general, in the way they have corrupted everything in their wake. It is time the investigation spends our tax dollars more wisely and actually do their jobs, instead of simply wasting all the hard earned money of the tax payer, on something that is nothing but a ” Witch Hunt”.

The other biggest thing that needs to be totally addressed is, the topic of   “Illegal” Immigration. If you are knowingly doing something Illegal and those around you keep slapping you on the hand, but yet you keep knowingly doing it, there is a serious problem that needs to be addressed, without sweeping it further under the rug. Mexico has a border wall on the other side of their country to keep out the riff raff, so why can’t we Americans have a border wall, so we can further protect the interests of all Americans? Don’t get me wrong, I do know that America was built on Immigration, but immigration done the correct way, without the word ” illegal” before the word of immigration. With the most recent news stories of fellow Americans being murdered at the hands of ” Illegal”Immigrants being so sad, so just how much of this has to happen, before our so called Leaders wake up from their dream world and simply get back in touch with true reality. I totally get the fact that others of other countries have their issues and want to find a better life for their families, but we here in America have our issues as well and the biggest one is, to totally revamp our Immigration policies and put and end to the word ” Illegal ” in front of the word Immigration, so we all can walk our paths, not just as safe as we can, but within true peace and happiness always.

This coming November is going to be one of the biggest and most important elections of my lifetime and if we screw this one up, America just may go in a direction, that we all will not like. True there may be some Democrats out there that are fair, balanced and totally in touch with reality, but I haven’t seen one yet? So with that said and being an Independent, I just may never vote Democrat until they come out of the denial of which they are in? Plus I am in total favor of term limits for all within the walls of Washington D. C. time to not just drain the swamp of corruption, but putting and end to those within our Government becoming to comfortable and set in their ways, so they can further their agendas, while they totally forget about those of who put them into their office they are in? We all here in America work hard and pay our taxes in this country, it is time we get rewarded for our hard work and not being taken advantage of or forgotten, like those so called leaders are doing now. We have a president in place right now that can do the job and so far he has proved he can do it, so this November, let’s reward him with the right candidates, so he can further his work of, ” Making America Great”. The time is now to fix what we need to fix, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” Drain the swamp is not the walking through the muck to clean the swamp land, it is about fixing the swamp of corruption within the walls of Washington D. C.”

” The true beauty of America is all around us, time we see through all the crap and totally see all the true beauty that is around us”

” When the word Illegal comes before anything, you are doing something wrong and need to fix what you are doing”

” Washington D. C. is flooded within the swamp of corruption, time to clean up the swamp for the good of all”

” When there is an investigation that has no base and goes no where, time to end the investigation and move on to something else”

 

 

 

 

 

 

To Radicalize and Socialism is not truly of who we are…….

” As many as are led by the spirit of God, these are sons of God”

Romans 8:14

 

” God is at work, even in the midst of the problems, pessimism and frustrations of our day, he alone is sovereign and that is why we can trust him, even when the way seems dark”

Habakkuk 1:5

 

While we walk through this journey of life, we walk our paths within a Society of many. Each Society over time is made up of all walks of life, no matter of who you are or, whatever religion, gender, or ideological thoughts you have, not even of whatever radical thoughts you may have, the problem with today’s society is, we are all walking within the clouds of our judgments, we all think in our own minds that, our way is the only way, only because we have lost the faith in Jesus Christ, which means that we have lost the true direction to the path of righteousness, for which Jesus had showed us, when he came to us and walked his journey here with us.

With some they may think they are above the law and operate in a reckless abandon kind of way, they cheat, steal, become very controlling and will abuse anybody that gets in their way. Some because they are so lost within themselves, will take complete advantage of, the weak minded and the young, so they can brainwash them to their sick and twisted ideologies and train them to not only be someone for who they truly are not, but have them do things that bring great harm, pain and hurt to the rest of us, simply because they know no better. All Religions are religions of peace, but those in the Muslim religion who are very radical, have twisted around the words in the Koran,  to suffice their sick and twisted ideologies.  Just like all who walk through this society in this journey of life, you have your good as well as the bad, just that we have become so fixated on the bad, makes it only seem as if the bad is winning in this crucial fight throughout mankind. We the people of this society have created all this hatred and ugliness around us and we the people, can simply uncreate it as well, all we have to do is truly believe and have complete faith in Jesus Christ, to guide us to the path of righteousness, where we all can walk this journey in the peace and happiness, we all so deserve.

With all the Terrorist acts that are happening Worldwide, you can clearly see that there are many who simply are not truly of who they are, then the talks of this thing called ” Radicalization”, shows of just how some want to totally have the power and control over the rest of us. Radicalization is nothing but a few picking out those who are either weak minded or young, to totally brainwash them, so they than can carry out their sick and twisted ideologies and bring much harm, pain and hurt to the rest of us, while through fear, they try to control everything around them. Back in the day to those who grew up through the 60’s, when they go against their up bringing, they were also known to be a Rebel and called a Radical of their time. Within today’s society and this Radicalization process, they have total taken this word and transformed it leaps and bounds, beyond what it truly means, The days of yesteryear and the times of today, are two totally different times, all the words and the ideologies, may be the same, it is just how they are translated within today’s society, which is nothing but creating more drama, hate and ugliness.

We all want to put our own stamp within the society for which we walk our journey in, but the problem then lies with the way we actually place the stamp within society. every society that has walked this journey through life, have their similarities to each other, true we can make improvements from one to another, but when we become too arrogant to realize that there have been mistakes made in past societies and we still repeat the process, shows of just how dumb we really are………. The solution is simple, it is okay to look back in the history of other societies, so we can fix what we need to fix properly, so we all than can move forward in our society, to not only be better and stronger, but walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness that we all so deserve and with the total faith in Jesus Christ, we than can have the hope to do it with confidence in ourselves, as we truly feel the love of Jesus within our souls and share that love with each other.

 

” To radicalize is to be brainwashed, which in essence you are now a part of the “cult” of the dark side, known as the evil side”

” Socialism never works, just look at the country of Venezuela and all it’s ugliness”

” Words come to us in our minds first, then we speak the words with our mouths, somewhere in between we then put our own spin on the spoken word”

” The stamp of life we all so want to leave within the society we walk, the problem lies with how we actually go about placing that stamp”

” We are told Lord that it is a privilege to suffer on your behalf, may you receive glory in every season of my life, whether I am enjoying success or enduring sorrow”

Philippians 1:29

 

The New England Patriots, Tom Brady and our President Mr. Donald Trump are kind of like this tree on a little Island, all by their selves, simply because they are alone with all their successes, with all around them doing nothing but hate on them, only because they themselves are too lazy to even try to achieve what they have. It is so much easier to just give up and not even try to achieve greatness, than actually putting in a hard days work, so not only to feel good of yourself, but you as well can achieve greatness, as do the New England Patriots, Tom Brady and our President Mr. Donald Trump.

Success doesn’t grow on tree’s, you just do not wake up one day and ” Poof”…….. You are successful with piles of money, true success comes from very hard work and very hard practice, to make the the work turn into success. With hard work comes a lot of blood, sweat and tears and without them, your not truly working hard, not too mention with the hard work also comes great pain and pain that is, physical in nature, as well as a deep psychological pain that is deep within our souls. Nobody will actually welcome any kind of pain, which is why some will try to take the easy way out and hate on those that are successful, to try to make themselves seem better and more powerful than the ones, who actually have put in the hard work and practice, to be truly great at who they have become.

I can remember growing up as a young child and watching the New England Patriots, this was a team that, unlike today where they win more than they lose, the team back then lost more than they won, they had some great Individual player’s, but never actually had the team play great together, much like they do today, a huge part of that is the great culture that the coach has brought to the team, for the last twenty years. True Bill Belichek is responsible for this culture, but Tom Brady and his strong work ethnic, has become a staple of the team for the nineteen years he has been Quarterback of the team. Tom is forty one going into this season, he continues to defy Father time, but you can clearly see that, he works very hard each and every day, so he can stay on top of his game and with the hard work, comes all the success he has had through his career, But even with all Tom’s hard work, there is a small percentage of others that will stop at nothing to hate on him, simply because they themselves are too arrogant and lazy, to actually work as hard as Tom works each and every day.  Let the ” Patriot way” be a lesson to us all, when you work hard and have a great culture in which to learn, than just maybe all of us can achieve greatness, as Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

President Donald Trump may be very wealthy, but that wealth didn’t just appear on his lap, he had to work hard at earning each and every penny of that wealth. Now some may make a ton of excuses, as to why they are not wealthy like him? but the bottom line is, they are more lazier than the President and do not want to put the work in. Jealousy will get you no where, as through jealousy only comes hate for all those around you. President Trump said before he won the election, that he would drain the swamp, he is doing just what he said, as well as a lot more. The swamp is really all the corruption within the walls of our Government here in America and if you are, as passionate as I in the world of politics, you can clearly see all the corruption, within the walls of Washington D.C. For which President Trump stands in the ocean alone, among a body of water full of sharks and he is doing a great job at fending them all off. Those on the left may hate on him more than those on the right, but they only hate on him, simply because he is making them look bad with his hard work, while they sit on there hands and continue their lazy ways of doing nothing, or keeping their campaign promises.

When we all work hard together, then yes we can make this society better and stronger, then societies of the past. Greatness never came from any kind of hatred, as hatred will only divide and separate, all that is around us. Hatred is the lazy mans way to try to move forward on their paths, while hard work will always bring you to true greatness, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life, better and stronger, while we all simply just get along in this society of divide, instead of attacking one another and achieving nothing, leaving us all with nothing  as well.

 

” A strong work ethnic will bring us to greatness, while the weak do nothing making them weaker moving forward”

” True greatness breeds strength, joy and happiness with success for all from the fruits of their labor”

” Hard work never comes easy, but it is always better than the alternative.

” The hard work will unite, without it we then will be divided”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Clouds of constant Change…….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” Just as the clouds in the sky change, so do we change, things around us change, circumstances change, fashions change, but through change done correctly, change can make us all better and stronger moving forward”

*** Bowlingchef***

 

With each passing storm, to the clear blue sky, the clouds will change into many formations even as we gaze into the wild blue yonder. Change will affect us in many ways, whether being positive or negative, but even through negative change, when we adapt properly to the change, we can change the change into a positive, to move forward better and stronger.

Very true when we are set in our ways, it makes us struggle to accept any change, we become depressed, we become very negative of everything around us, we get angry of everything, then stew within our own anger, but the biggest thing we do is, even without realizing of what we are doing, we lose focus of who we truly are, we become lost along our paths of this journey through life, then we through the depression part we make ourselves sick, of which we then let it affect the way we treat others.

A lot of times we have no control over change, which is the biggest thing that we tend to not accept of it, especially within this broken society, when we lose control of anything, we then become angry of anyone and everything around us. But if only we take the change in moderation, learn to accept it as it comes and then fix what we need to fix, so we than can accept and let the change flow as natural as it may, so we can walk our paths of this journey, as smoothly as we can.

The journey of life is not always smooth or walked down a prim rose path, it will throw you many curve balls, as you need to learn to adjust your swing, to hit the ball out of the park. The journey will have many bumps along the paths, that will bruise you and knock you down, but the best way of healing yourself from the pain and hurt of the knockdown is, all about the way you get up from the fall and keep moving forward along your path of this journey through life. Being able to adjust and adapt to any kind of change, will go along way toward reaching your destination of this journey and for most, the destination is to reach the path of righteousness, for which Jesus taught us, when he came to us and showed us how to walk our paths through this journey of life.

There is a big difference between right and wrong and when we are out of focus, because we let change take our focus away, we then lose our direction as we try to reach our destination along our paths, which is reaching the path of righteousness. Within this broken Society only proves, that many have lost their focus along their paths, which has us all walking in circles instead of in any certain direction, it is easy to just make a choice, but when that choice is either right or wrong and within the clouds of our judgments, shows just how easy it is to become lost within this journey. Which then takes away the peace and happiness, of all our paths, through this journey of life.

 

” As the clouds form, so do we within all the changes all around us”

” The changes of life do not have to define us, if only we keep the focus along this journey though life”

” The journey of life is not always full of roses and smooth as silk, but with our focus and within proper change, we can be as peaceful and happy as we want to be”

” As we walk our paths correctly accepting change, we will find true peace and happiness”

” There shall be no night there,…… And they shall reign forever and ever”

Hope for today:

” We can not cling to the success or failures of the past, each new day brings a new opportunity to live for Christ, to share his gospel and to build his kingdom, let’s be about our Father’s business”

Now if we all took the Robin Williams approach to walking our paths through this journey of life, then just maybe this society would be a lot better for all? This was a man…… Who was hurting real pain deep inside himself, but yet had decided to through his humor, make the rest of us forget about the pain within us all. Robin Williams was blessed with the talent to truly entertain us all, whether it was comedy, or a movie like ” Dead Poet’s Society”, which for me was the best of all his movies. Robin Williams was truly sent from God for the benefit of us all, as he entertained us ( while he himself hurt deeply inside), so the rest of us can find relief from our pain, even if it was for a short time.

It is so sad that, we of this Society will go to any length to bring so much pain toward each other, that we as an Individual have lost totally the true feelings of, love and empathy that is within us all. When one fails at attempting something they are not used to, others will make fun of those failures instead of praising him to keep trying, which leads to many that will always quit, or never even try to make an attempt at something new. Then there are those that are very talented to play a sport, as they then turn professional and receive huge money to simply play a game.

Life within the National Football League is so screwed up today, simply because………. One has started a new thing of, taking a knee in protest, while disrespecting not just a song, not just a flag, but those who have died defending that flag, so the rest of us can live peacefully and as free as we want to be, doing whatever we want to do. Now with that said………. Through the whole off season of the NFL, there was not one Knee taker doing anything about whatever they were protesting to begin with, but now as the first pre-season  game has been played, they start back at taking a knee? The Quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys said it best, ” Football is not the time or the place for anything, other than playing the game of Football”, I agree totally and now have much more respect for Zak Prescott.

Most of us all stop what we normally do on Sunday’s, to watch the game of football the game, not the game of football being a politically ridden agenda, of whatever the flavor of the week may be for their protests. Let’s look deeper and put it a little different, we all go to our jobs each day, we work for a corporate company correct? What would happen to us if we decide to stand on a soap box and bring protest to our jobs? Correct……… We would be fired for not doing our job as we should be doing, well an NFL team is owned by an owner and that Owner buys the team for one thing and that is to make good on his investment, so in essence the NFL team is a corporate company, that pays it’s employee’s to do a job and not stand on, or take a knee in protest. Football is a game of strategy with the best strategy winning the game, football is not a game of protest and nor do the fans watch the game just for the protest, we watch to see a great game of different strategies, being played by not just an employee of a team, but a well trained and talented athlete, that’s true focus is on winning the game and nothing more, which to me there is one more focused on winning a game, each and every game, he has proved it more than once and that Athlete is, the quarterback of the New England Patriots………. Tom Brady.

There may be some that call Tom Brady a ” cheater”? Really!!! Then I shall call you fat, dumb and stupid, simply because you are too lazy to put in the work each and every day as Tom Brady does, to be the best at whatever it is you do. Whether off season or in season, Tom works very hard every day, so he can be as good as he needs to be and his winning ways proves just that. My challenge to all those who feel the need to protest within the NFL is, try working as hard as Tom Brady, focus 100% on the game of football, so just maybe you can be a true Champion, as the G.O.A.T of the NFL…….. Tom Brady already is, forget about the outside crap ( only to be done on your time…not company time), So not just you and your team play a great game of football, but we the fans, can watch a very well played, with very different strategies to winning a well played game, by well trained and talented athlete’s, each and every week of the season.

 

” Any professional sport is not about any kind of outside protest, as it is about showcasing the God given talent you have been given”

” You are an employee of the owner of the team you play for, there is a code of conduct for each corporate company you work for”

” Any success or failure we may have will be in our past, we can learn from the past, but never shall we dwell in the past as it only brings more pain to us all”

” We all have a God given talent and it is up to each of us to find that talent”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frozen in Time

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness”

John 1:9

 

” create in me a clean heart o’ God and renew a steadfast spirit within me”

Psalm 51:10

 

Looks like a sheen of ice covering the rock in the middle of the picture, it’s just water frozen in time, as the camera snaps the shot at the perfect time. Just as this mountain stream flows peacefully down the mountain, we to can walk our paths of this journey in peace, when we truly believe and have faith in God, as he forgives us of our sins, so we can then forgive ourselves, to keep moving forward throughout this journey.

The mountain stream is more than water flowing down the mountain, it is a source to quench the thirst of all that is around it, The life of the stream is  of multi purpose, just like if we take a dresser we store clothes in and turn it into a desk for our home office. Everything has a purpose throughout this journey, just that we all have to find just what the purpose is, so we than can flow as peaceful as the stream down the mountain.

When we come back to the Lord, all we really have to do is, truly feel him within our hearts, so the warmth we feel passing through the heart, isn’t just our blood, but the blood of Christ his son, flowing through our hearts, throughout our bodies, filling us with his love, so we than can share that love with each other, while we all walk our paths of this journey, in the peace of God, just like the stream flowing down the mountain.

When you confess to God your sins, you are then wiping clean your slate, as God forgives you moving forward. When the slate is wiped clean, it is like starting over within a new life. When God forgives you, there is no trace of who you used to be, as now through God, you can truly be of who you truly are, so you now can walk your path with confidence and walk this journey in the peace and happiness, you so deserve. When we truly be who we are, keep in touch with our true feelings of love and empathy, there is really no room for any other crap to flow around us, as those obstructions come before us, we will always have the confidence to flow over them, instead of being stuck behind, or being hurt deeply when we fall over them. God is always the common denominator of all the good within this journey and when we don’t have that denominator, is when we get lost within this journey, which then we become confused with much doubt and struggle with different numerators, truly being of who we are not.

 

” Frozen in time is when we are being truly of who we are not, flowing like the stream down the mountain is the cleanse of the clean slate”

” The blood that flows through our heart, does more than give us life, it is the blood of Christ flowing through our bodies with the warmth of  his love, so we than can share with all that is around us”
