Advent…The coming of Jesus Christ

Digital Camera

” Why do you let us wander, O Lord, from your ways, and harden our hearts so that we fear you not?… Behold, you are angry, and we are sinful, all of us have become like unclean people”.

Isaiah 63:17;64:4

We of this society are completely in the darkness of this storm, and this year of 2020 has darkened the clouds greatly. The weeks of Advent leading to the coming of Jesus Christ on Christmas day, is all about the Hope, the love, the Joy, and the peace, all elements that we as a society have lost, and especially during this year of 2020. We have let the hatred and the ugliness consume us so much, that we do not look at the little things anymore, it’s the little things that have become so unimportant to us, because we look for that big homerun, and forget that it is the base hits that win the game. Because we have let the darkness cloud our judgments, we don’t look for those little things anymore, we don’t look at the big picture, or what is right in front of us, instead we reach for the bright and shiny, so we then shy away from putting in any kind of work, that will help us move forward out of the darkness.

With this Advent is not just the coming of Jesus, it is a magical time of year as well, the magic comes when we have true faith, which then gives us the hope moving forward, then when we truly feel the warmth of love within our hearts, then the empathy within us shines brightly, then as our paths shine a bit of light, the joy brightens even further the path, as through joy comes happiness, and when we are happy, now Jesus is happy and finally the light comes, with the darkness slipping away, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Faith, Love, Joy and Happiness plus the complete faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, these are the ingredients that help the magic, which helps us heal, so the dark clouds can be lifted, and replaced with the bright light of the path of righteousness. Sometimes through the darkness, we just can’t see clearly of what is right in front of us, we become lost and become someone who we truly are not, we hide a big piece of who we are, just to keep from being hurt with real pain, but when we let faith work it’s magic, now the hope will brighten us up, to feel the love and be happy, so we then can be finally in peace, leaving all the ugliness behind.

Jesus Christ came to us on Christmas day, he walked this journey here with us and taught us many things, he shared his love for us and sacrificed himself for us as well, Jesus died for every one of us, no matter of who you are, and with the way 2020 has gone, this is how we pay him back? We let the ugliness, the hatred and the corruption consume us so….. We have become so divided of one another, that we can’t even look each other in the eye, we all need to stop dwelling in the past, so we all can move forward in peace, and with this being the first day of Advent, may we all dig deep, find that true faith, that will give us great hope, so we can be filled with love within our hearts, as the empathy fills our souls, then as our hearts become warm once again, let the Joy bring us much happiness, so as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we all can be at peace, as Jesus becomes proud of us once again and the magic of this special time of year, reaches us all, to heal us better and stronger moving forward.

” Hope, Love, Joy and Peace are all part of the Advent season and what brings the magic of Christmas to us all”

” The love of Jesus Christ is always within our hearts and keeps us warm, but when we don’t acknowledge this love, our hearts become cold”

It’s the miracles and having Faith

” Do you believe in miracles”, those famous words from Al Michael’s of the 1980 USA hockey team victory over the great Russian team. I am talking of different kind of miracle, a miracle that comes to each of us and in a spiritual way. With these miracles comes faith and when there is faith, there is always hope moving forward. This season of Christmas in other words the miracle season, when you have true faith in your beliefs, you just never know what miracle awaits you? Miracles do happen, just that we don’t have the true faith, to recognize them when they do happen, which then leaves us with no hope moving forward.

Now with all the ugliness, power hungry and greediness going on all around us, not to mention the corrupt left bias media only publishing what ” they” want us to know, it is very easy for us to get consumed with all the negativity, and totally forget of who we truly are, totally become lost as we walk our paths of this journey, totally lose all faith in everything around, that then leaves us with no hope, and when the hope and faith are not there, then we become filled with emptiness and feel incomplete, then try to keep walking our paths, but all we are really doing is wandering and trying to find our faith to then have the hope in all we do.

Now as we embark on yet another Christmas season, let us all truly get back to who we are, let us all truly feel the love of Jesus Christ within our hearts, as in todays society our hearts have become cold from all the ugliness and the choices of some, who are trying to take us away from the house of the Lord. Those same ones are also trying to divide us, as they so desperately try to seek all the power from us all and control us as well. When we stay true to who we are, then Jesus will never leave us no matter who tries to separate us? That warm feeling in your heart, that is Jesus keeping us from the cold and the darkness that Satan wants to bring us, as long as the warmth fills our hearts, then the faith is always there, which means the hope is as well, when there is faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, there will always be a chance for that special miracle we long for, miracles just do not happen, they come to us from Jesus Christ, so with the faith, he will bring hope to us all.

Jesus Christ is everywhere and when we have true faith in him, he will then appear to us in many ways, just like these two pictures I captured, to some may seem like the roots of a tree in the water, but to one with true faith, this is the crown that was a top the head of Jesus as he carried the cross, then the other picture to some may be just a tree stump? To one with true faith, you will see the face of Jesus, with the crown a top his head. Jesus is all around us, and yes I agree, with all this ugliness around us, then where is he? All we need to do is, dig down deep within our soul, get to that special place that only you and Jesus know of, so he can help us heal properly of our troubles, as we then truly get back in touch with our true feelings and emotions, which will then help Jesus warm our hearts with his love, so we than can share that love with each other. Every season of Christmas is full of many miracles, we just need true faith, to have any hope of the miracle, Jesus only wants the good to come to us all, he never wishes Ill on any of us, the wishing of any Evil to come to any of us, comes totally from each one of us. We are all so consumed with this power, control and greed, that the clouds of our judgments have become so thick, we can not see clearly of what is in front of us, so we are letting the so called ” powers to be” control us, instead of us, having the true faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, keeping alive the hope, so we then can be aware of any kind of miracle that may come to us. Miracles are real and they do happen, just that we all need the true faith, keeping alive the hope for the miracle to happen.

” Miracles are real and they do happen, just that they need true faith keeping alive the hope of them happening”

” Jesus Christ is everywhere and he will come to us all, we just need the faith in ourselves as well as him to feel his love within us”

” Christmas is a lot more than receiving any gift, it is the warmth of love and the true faith which gives us hope along this journey”

The season of being Thankful

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Thanksgiving is the time of year for us all to be thankful for all we have, and all who we truly are. Thanksgiving is a special time for us all to come together and share our true feelings with each other, but unfortunately, within this society and all that is happening in this year of 2020, there are some that are trying to divide us, there are some that are trying to take advantage of us all, there are some because of the power of denial, that are trying to take all the control of each of us, as they then let the their judgments become clouded, just for all the greed. Sometimes you wonder how we can be so mean to one another? Why do we crave all this power, control and greed? The power of denial is a powerful source, it will turn you into someone for who you truly are not, it will not only have you be not truthful with others, but it will also have you not be truthful with yourself as well. Yes we can take control of this denial, all we need to do is, reach down deep within, deep within your soul, get back in touch not just with your true self, but with your true feelings and emotions, simply because denial will have you bury very deeply these feelings and emotions, which will have you become someone for who you truly are not.

Within this fast paced society that has us traveling at warp speed, we will do whatever we can in order to not get left behind, we want so much to be within the in crowd, that we will stretch the truth in ways that put us on a pedestal over all others, then before we know it, that stretching becomes a way of life, that leads to being fake and not truly of who we are, that’s where the denial comes in and takes control as we let it, but what we do not realize is, as we stretch the truth, the truth becomes like a rubber band, that eventually it will snap and boy does that hurt being snapped by a rubber band being stretched beyond the link of where it let’s go, the pain from the snap is real and yes it does sting, but through the denial, we then forget that the pain will go away over time, just that we do not see it that way throughout all the stretching of the many truths.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, there will be many ups and downs along these paths, but when we give in to temptation and when we lose sight of our true selves, we then lose sight of reality all around us, as we then become drawn into the power of denial, the only thinking of ourselves and lose all the true feelings and emotions, by burying them so deep within, that it is like they are not even there. Within this fast paced society, we can see that through all the ugliness, there is the one main feeling that we have lost greatly, that is the feeling of love, that feeling of Jesus within our hearts, which is the warmth of our love that warms up our hearts, without that warmth, it leaves our hearts cold and us with no feelings or empathy for anything or anyone around us. With us traveling at warp speeds and the clouds within the judgments, will have us not seeing everything around as it should be seen, it will have us not take the time to enjoy everything around as we walk this journey, with the end result being, we become someone for who we truly are not, with hearts so cold, we feel nothing, which then we care nothing as well. This is the sad part of this society, but unless we do not wake up out of the denial, this could be a sad reality for us all?

Thanksgiving is not just about sitting around a table and filling your belly with great food, Thanksgiving is about being thankful for who we truly are, and warming your hearts with the love and joy of everything around you. In this society we all have taken for granted many things, but as we do take things for granted, we then lose a big piece of who we are, then eventually, we do not even recognize ourselves, let alone anyone around us knowing who we are as well. We are like dust in the wind throughout this journey, and when the journey has ended, the dust then settles without being lifted into the air around.

” Dust in the wind, the dust is only lifted into the air as long as the wind lifts it into the air”

” Thanksgiving is in the air, time to be thankful for all we have and all we do, with no regrets”

The Swamp Creatures within to release its great talents

You think by the title I may write of the swamp within Washington DC? Why waste two great pictures within Mother Nature. Even Mother Nature has swamps within it, the difference is, mother nature takes care of them so they can thrive, within Washington DC, the ones within that swamp only takes care of themselves and totally forgets of all those around them. Not that I want many getting out within mother nature to take away all the beauty I come across on my journey’s, but within this screwed up society only proves further that, a high percentage of us, have totally forgotten and taken for granted, all the true beauty within mother nature.

No matter where you go within mother nature, there is so much beauty with every turn, not just all the plant life, or the landscapes, but there are many wild animals that roam within mother nature, these animals call mother nature their home, just like we have homes and want others to respect our homes, we to need to respect their homes, while we are out there within mother nature. The beauty of mother nature is everywhere around us, even as we drive to our jobs, but sadly we take this so for granted, that we do not look at it as being within mother nature, instead, because we are so caught up in all the ugliness, we see no beauty.

With another Veterans day upon us, let us take the time to thank a Veteran, for it is the veterans that keep us free to do as we want within this country, there are some that do show respect to our Veterans, but there are some who totally take them for granted, as not only do they not thank a Veteran, but they can’t see what they do for each and every one of us. A real Veteran will never see a swamp and see it as ugly, he will do what he has to, in order to clean it, so it’s future will be nothing but beauty for all.

“The one who had received five talents came forward bringing the additional five. He said, Master, you gave me five talents. See, I have made five more”

Mt: 25;20

We all in this society and as we walk through this journey, have special talents, we all have a purpose as we walk this journey, but unless we find that purpose, we will never unlock the talents that are within us, and without the purpose, we then will never not only show our talents, but we will never bring our talents to the next level, like building more talents upon the talents that are already within us. In order to truly find your purpose and your talents, you need the confidence within you and the confidence in Jesus Christ, so you can move forward along this journey and find that purpose, the problem within this society is a lot of us have lost that confidence and have lost of who we truly are, while we are all lost and within the clouds of our judgments, we will never see any beauty around us, we become full of fear that brings us much pain, as we never see us for who we are, we will never see anything around for what it truly is as well.

This journey through life is like that when we do not take care of ourselves as we should, when we truly take care of ourselves, fix what we need to fix, not only will we ourselves be better moving forward, everything around us will become better as well. This year of 2020 has been a very challenging year in so many different ways, with all the ugliness that has come across all our paths through this journey, proves that we all need to take care of ourselves, so we then move forward with each other, to become better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

When we take care of ourselves and see the talents within us that Jesus has supplied us with, we will then find that confidence that he sees in us, and bring that confidence out, to let the talents shine brightly as we walk our paths, as now those talents will help us achieve many more talents throughout our lives. The success for each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life is endless, with the confidence in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, then all our talents will shine as bright as the sun on it’s best day, which will then have us find many more talents to shine even brighter, so we all can move forward in the peace and happiness, that Jesus showed us when he came and walked this journey here with us.

We all have talents within us, these talents will help us find our purpose here within this journey, then as we find this purpose and our talents within, we will then find that there are many more talents for us to unlock within this journey as well, all we need is to have that confidence in ourselves, that confidence in Jesus Christ as well, so as we walk this journey through life, then the true success for each of us will be endless and all this ugliness we see today will disappear, as there will be no room for it to exist anymore. Just as Mother Nature has it’s true beauty for us to see, there is no better beauty than the beauty within each of us, especially when we are confident, release our true talents, and have found our purpose in life, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” A true talent goes a lot deeper then any kind of sporting or singing type of talent”

” The beauty of mother nature is definitely beautiful, but the beauty within us all is so much more precious and special”

The light of Jesus Christ is with us all throughout this journey of life

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The light of Jesus Christ is within all our souls and beats within our hearts, Jesus is always there when we need, he will always heal us of our troubles. Jesus came and walked this journey here with us while sharing his love with us all, he sacrificed and died for each of us, so we can be free, not just as we walk our paths through this journey, but free of anything that we may encounter along this journey. This journey may not be perfect, we may not be perfect, but when we acknowledge Jesus Christ within us, this journey will be as close to perfect as perfect can be.

The darkness that encompasses us all today within this society, only comes to us as we have lost touch with the love of Jesus within our hearts, we have strayed away from the house of the Lord and put ourselves above Jesus Christ. The result of all this crap around us today, is a direct result of the fact that we all have lost the feeling of the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls. Our hearts have become cold towards each other as we only think of ourselves and put ourselves above one another, this is not what Jesus taught us when he walked this journey here with us, The problem of this society lies within each us and the solution is also within us, if only we could truly feel the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls. Within this fast paced society, where we want everything now and become impatient, most do not visit the house of God anymore, which the excuse ” I am too busy”, is the excuse of the day, instead of making a weekly trip and praying to Jesus, so we can heal ourselves of our troubles, when we do not heal properly, now we suppress and bury our troubles and try to move forward, but when we suppress we are only delaying til a later time, just we do not realize it at the time. Faith is a key component in our lives, not just faith in ourselves, but having the complete faith in Jesus Christ, as we walk our paths of this journey through life. When we lose the faith and have no confidence in ourselves, it is Jesus that helps us find it, so we than can have hope moving forward, as when there is faith there will always be hope.

We may walk many paths through this journey, but there is only one journey in our lives as we all have the same beginning and the same ending. The paths may change as other variables may change in our lives, these variables will come to us in many different ways, with some bringing much pain and hurt, there are many of us feeling the pain and hurt, and we all deal with it in our own way, we never talk to anybody of what ails us, because we don’t want to admit to any weakness, but as they say talk is cheap, on the contrary, talk will make us all rich, as it heals us within our souls, so we can keep moving forward better and stronger. For the most part, the pain and hurt will keep us from being true to ourselves as well as each other, it will have us hide within and become someone for who we truly are not, there are many today who are hurting, but we will never know, as they keep to themselves in this world of fast pace.

This journey may have many variables, but when we keep the variables to a minimum, this journey will then reward us with a journey well walked, Throughout this journey, Jesus is always within us no matter of what path we may walk, we just need to acknowledge him, so he than can help us heal from all our troubles. Jesus can’t help us unless we acknowledge him and when we distent ourselves from him, that is when our confidence goes away and the troubles seem to get bigger then they really are, which then the light turns to darkness and we become cold to everything around us.

” The light turns to darkness, then with faith and hope the darkness will then go back to the bright lights, that light up our paths moving forward”

” Talk is never cheap as true talk will help us become even richer then any amount of money will bring us to”
