The Camping Time Zone

With camping season upon us once again, you are now entering into another dimension, a dimension that puts you into a whole different zone, a zone known as the camping zone, which also comes with it’s own time zone, the time zone you are now on as you are camping within nature is known as, ” Camp Time”!!!

When you are on camp time, you just go with the flow of the day, without being pressured into any set time, like within the 9 to 5 where everything is measured by time, even as you sit to take a lunch break. Time is money is all you hear within the 9 to 5, well within the camp time, it’s about relaxing and doing when you feel like doing, sitting back and totally enjoying what’s around you, like the sounds of nature which are soothing and calming, if only the 9 to 5 time was more like the camp time, then just maybe, as we walk our paths through this journey, we could do so with less stress and with less stress, maybe we would all get along and totally share the love within, with each other every day.

This picture is what true camping is about, a little speck of land within the true beauty of nature. The lake, the mountains, the wilderness, all this and more as you become one with nature and totally unwind from the daily 9 to 5. Within this picture is nothing but peace and serenity and as you become deep within camp time, you can clearly hear all the sounds of nature all around you, the sounds of nature vary day to day, but the one constant would be, being surrounded by the peace and serenity, as through that constant, the stress of the 9 to 5 melts from your body, the clouds within your mind then becomes clear and you see more deeply everything that is around you.

Just as the Twilight zone is fiction on television, the camp time zone is reality and puts you into a place that is real, a place where you can actually feel and touch everything around you, pitch a tent, set the camp site, now build a campfire, all that is left is to simply relax within nature and with each new day, embark on a different adventure within nature, then back at camp for the nightly meal and relaxing by the camp fire. Some may camp within a trailer on wheels, with the comforts of home, that is camping yes and depending on the location? When you are in a trailer park with a lot of people and many activities to do, this is not true camping, as now there is no ” Camp Time”, with each activity having you on their time zone, true camping is deep within the woods of mother nature, where the only activities are the ones you make up as you go, with the daily walks within nature on your camp time, let’s not forget that within the woods of mother nature and with less people, you are now surrounded with true peace and serenity, to listen to the true sounds of nature, so you can truly heal from the stress of the 9 to 5, let the stress melt from your body and the clouds within your mind disappear, as you see more clearly of everything around you. The body can not handle all the stress we feed to it, just that we never enter enough into the ” Camping Time Zone”.

” The camping time zone is real, unlike the the twilight zone on TV”

” This journey is not about being stressed all the time, stress is not healthy and will keep us from being truly of who we are”

” The mountains, the lake, the wilderness, the bear, the moose……….Oh My!!!!! ”

” Let’s all enter within the Camp Time Zone more often, become one with mother nature, letting this journey be more peaceful and happy”

three tours in a hostile place, to find peace within nature

a tree in the middle of a lush green forest: This file photo shows the Appalachian Trail and the rural nature of the trail near the scene of the fatal attack Saturday May 11, 2019. This is about one mile from where the attack occurred. (Appalachian Trail Conservancy)

Such a tragedy in a place that, there is suppose to be peace and serenity, a place where you go to escape the ugliness? Although this poor Individual unexpectedly walked right into it. The Individual in question had served three tours in Iraq, came home not the same man he once was, he suffered from PTSD and depression, his wife says he would sleep all day and either watch TV, or play video games by night, the two had separated as he fell further into depression. Finally one day he wanted to truly find himself again, so he took to the trails of the Appalachian trail. This trail is supposed to be about peace and serenity, while you walk within nature, it helps you to clear your mind and feed your soul, it is not suppose to have any ugliness on the trail at all, but unfortunately, the ugliness found him in the form of an mentally deranged Individual.

This Soldier of three tours didn’t ask for this, as all he wanted was to truly find of who he once was, so he can continue moving forwarded better and stronger throughout this journey. Yes the person responsible was captured and brought to justice, but a little too late for this true American Veteran hero, as now he will never get that second chance, to be of truly who he really was.

Sometimes life just isn’t fair, this journey and all that happens within it, will bring great pain and hurt, this journey will turn us into someone we truly are not, with all the ugliness that is around us, most of the time it isn’t even our fault, as a lot of our pain and sufferings comes from another, or a situation that we have entered into. Then as we try to fix ourselves, it becomes even worse, as we then try to escape into a place where we think is safe, a place that has nothing but beauty all around at every turn, then unexpectedly, we are facing ugliness square in the eyes.

This tragic event within the trails of the Appalachian trail, should really of never happened, as this trail is within mother nature, with all the true beauty you can see far and near, when you plan this hike and take the first step on this great trail, the last thought in your head is any kind of ugly thought. There are many who hike, have hiked and will be hiking this trail, they do so because they have become lost on their path of this journey, they want to embark on a place, where they can clear the clouds of their judgments and truly get back to who they truly are. Depression no matter how you have entered within, will eat you from the inside out, while most of the time you hide deep within yourself and never let anybody in. The great Robin Williams is perfect example, as he brought us all to laughter, while he suffered deeply within, from this silent killer known as, ” Depression”. It can and will strike anybody and does not discriminate. Just like a member of the animal kingdom who prey on the weak for their next meal, so does a mentally deranged Individual prey on the weak, so they can feel more powerful, in their warped and twisted mind. The problem lies with our so called Leader’s who when they need more cash for their agendas, the first thing they cut is mental institutions, so now these Individuals have no where to turn, except maybe those who are around them and in a negative way, instead of a positive way. Yes in depression we don’t want others to know, nor do we not want to acknowledge, we have become victim of this depression, but when we take steps to fight it and instead we find the ugliness, this is what makes the actions so tragic, as we try to move forward better and stronger, along our paths of this journey through life.

” Go from three tours in a hostile place to, back home and try to be the same person you once was”

” The Appalachian trail is deep within mother natures beauty, the problem then lies with each of us turning to the ugliness and burying who we truly are”

The Fire in the sky………..

What a beautiful sunset to cap of a beautiful day within nature. The sky is burning in the flames of the sun, just as the fire burns within each of us, we all have that flame within us, to achieve all we want to achieve, as we get older that flame seems to die out a bit, but does it really die out? It only seems like it does, because we loose our focus, we lose the drive to keep the flames burning within, we then get so caught up in all the crap around us, we then forget to stoke our own fire, we look at all around us in a different way, the focus we once had becomes clouded as we do not see things as we once did. Life is not all as soft as a Rose pedal, or the path we walk is not always paved, we always have to work hard for what we want and there are no exceptions, even the filthy rich have to work hard at keeping their wealth, or their wealth will disappear as quick as it came.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we have to work every day to make the path as smooth as we can, the one thing we can not do is, count on another to help in the up keep of the path, unlike some might think like one of those Socialists types, you can’t take from one to help another along, especially the fact that those you may be taking from, are out there working hard to keep their paths clear, so why should some not have to work at clearing their path? Why should some take something that they really didn’t work for? There is this thing called pride and with pride, it makes you have a good feeling within, it helps you with self confidence to achieve all you want to achieve, without the pride and without the confidence, then the fire within you really does not burn as it should, as a matter of fact, that fire within becomes extinguished, making you cold inside with no true feelings moving forward.

Camping within Mother Nature is a lot more than just setting up a tent, setting up a piece of land just for peace and quiet, the days of camping is to unwind from the daily grind, explore and see things for which you normally would not see, not just see a sunset as beautiful as this, but also a sunrise just as much, there is a lot more to this journey through life, than the usual daily grind we all live, true we can get so caught up in the daily grind, that we then forget to stoke our fire within, which we then forget to get out and explore to see things we never see normally, sometimes we make a choice to stay within the world we are in, then that becomes our choice and we really can not blame another for that choice we have made, nor can we expect another to give up their choice, just because we do not like the choice we have made.

Sometimes life will bring us discomfort, it will bring us things that gives us much pain and hurt, through that pain and hurt is also when we become so clouded within, that the fire within us, will become extinguished like the rain fall over the campfire, when we are within the clouds it becomes very hard to see anything, even the path for which we are walking and instead of working at cleaning up the path, we just wander trying to hide our pain and hurt, so we can look as normal as we can. Sometimes the discomfort is part of what we are doing and sometimes, the discomfort comes from others who will bring it to us, simply because they try to seem more powerful to those around them? Either way it is up to us to clear the clouds of pain and hurt, so we than can feel good of ourselves, feel total confidence in ourselves, so we to can achieve all we want to achieve.

A trip within Mother Nature to explore and see things we normally would not see, is better than any therapy, it will help us unwind, it will help us clear the clouds from our judgments, so we than can see all the beauty around us, as we look out into the horizon and with a clear mind, we than can see that the horizon is looking back at us, we also notice that all our other senses are waking up to what is around us, we find that yes we do have these things of feelings within us, just that they were buried so deep within, that like the fire within, they were lost within the clouds that engulfed us. This journey through life is not about us waiting for another to give us everything, it’s not about just being consumed within the daily grind, there is so much more to this journey, we just have to have the confidence in ourselves to get out there and explore all that it has to offer and with this confidence, we will find that we have these feelings within us, that need to be stoked like the fire within, so as we walk our paths through this journey, we can do so in peace and happiness always.

” As the fire is within the sky, so to is there a fire within each of us as well to fuel ourselves to achieve all we want to achieve”

” As the sunset comes to put the sky to sleep for the night, so does the sunrise come to wake the sky up for the coming day”

” Socialism never works, just look at the current country of Venezuela”

” Discomfort will bring us pain and hurt, but to bring us comfort we all need to work hard and the pain and hurt will get better moving forward”

Escape within the beauty of Mother Nature

The quiet serenity and beauty all around you, that is exactly what escaping within Mother Nature is all about. Leaving the daily grind even if it is for a short time, it is time much needed with all the drama and ugliness within the daily grind. Camping season is right around the corner and having reservations for a camp site on Memorial weekend, I simply can not wait to unwind and totally relax within the beauty of Mother Nature.

The beach in this picture may be a bit rocky, but it is a beach that you can enjoy all to yourself, a beach to sit and watch the Eagles fly by and on occasion, swoop down into the water for it’s daily meal. Then there is the Loon swimming by as it sings back and forth with other Loons, what a beautiful sound to just sit and relax, as you listen to them in their habitat. Then if your lucky enough without being to noisy, a friendly Moose will come out of the woods to the lake shore, for a drink and a bath. Now let’s not forget all the different sounds you hear within woods behind you, some sounds you would normally never hear within the daily grind, Mother Nature is pure beauty and never ever forget!!! You are now within the homes of the animal kingdom, which you need to respect, just like you would want others to respect your home as they come to visit you.

As quiet as this picture is, it is really this quiet as you sit on this rocky beach in person, while you sit in your comfy chair on this beach and take in all the beauty around you, you will actually feel the stress of the daily grind leave your body, the clouds of your judgment, will become clear as you look out within the beauty, the transition from the daily grind, to the beauty of Mother Nature is the most beautiful thing and we all need more of it.

When you take to the outdoors and within the beauty of Mother Nature, you also have to explore and see things you never will see within the daily grind, when I lived in the great state of Colorado, I had a 4×4 pick up and would venture in the back country and as high as 13,000 feet on a mountain, the beauty I would come across would take your breathe away, plus from time to time, come across a few Ghost towns, dating back in time from the gold rush days, I would stop and get out of the truck to walk around these towns, as I then would gain a big respect for those of our past, seeing that a lot of the buildings were still standing strong today. I would also come across some animals I would never see otherwise as they lived within the high country, like the Doll sheep, and the Ram sheep, even mountain lion and antelope, plus some pretty big bull Elk, it is so beautiful to see these kind of animals in their elements. I came across this herd of Ram sheep one time, as some where actually ramming each other with the horns, I must say I was getting a headache watching this, as in the daily grind you would never get a chance to see this at all.

There is so much to the beauty of Mother Nature and unless you get out and explore this beauty, you will never see or witness this beauty, from the daily grind that we all get caught up within. We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all become too programmed within our daily grinds, to the point that some never get out to see the true beauty of Mother Nature, When you think about it……………. That is too sad because, we then become too tense and have no idea of what truly relaxing really is. When we are too tense that is when we bring all the ugliness we see today to each other, we then think that this is the norm? This is not truly of who we are, who we truly are…………….. Are people with love in our hearts that keeps us warm inside, when we become too tense, we then never truly feel the warmth of this love and then never share it with each other. The warmth of the love within your heart, is Jesus Christ our savior and his love for us, he loves us all deeply and equally, no matter of who you are, we within today’s daily grind, never give ourselves a chance to truly feel this love, as we become so engulfed, within the ugliness and hatred of today.

” Escape to the beauty of mother nature, to truly relax and get back in touch with the warmth of love within your heart from Jesus Christ”

” The rocky beach at first glance may look rough, but it’s true beauty will surround you with plenty of peace and serenity”

” The sounds of mother nature will totally relax you, as the stress of the daily grind will melt from your mind, body and soul”

” It may be a ghost town now, but at one point it was a bustling little town, full of joy, happiness and love”

The clouds take shape, as they speak in their own way

” While he was still speaking, a cloud came and cast a shadow over them, they became frightened when they entered the cloud, then from the cloud came a voice that said, ” This is my chosen son; listen to him” *** Lk 9:34-35 *** Within this Society we walk today, we are so far removed from the journey of Jesus Christ, that we have become so easily consumed by all the ugliness, that we see nothing in front of us, nothing only because we do not look deeper into what we see. We go into the house of God for once a week, then the rest of the week, we let the ugliness consume us once again, this has become one big vicious circle for each of us, to the point that we look up and just see clouds, without looking deeper and really seeing their shapes and hearing their suttle words for us from our savior Jesus Christ. With this weeks words from this quote from Luke, you can clearly see that this is a great quote for us all within this Society of today, simply because we of today only look superficially at all that is around us, instead of looking deeply into what you see. That guy you shrug off as a quack pot………. Maybe he is very smart and views the World very differently than you and I? We all look at the new Congresswoman, especially that one from New York who was a bartender, true she comes across as a quack pot and someone that has no clue on reality, but instead of looking at her as a joke, let’s try looking at her very deeply and just maybe we can see something in her, that will help us all in this Society. We all have something to give, just that when we become lost in the clouds of our judgments, we then never look deeply into what we see, anywhere around us. Wake up in the morning, you walk into the bathroom and what do you see? I mean what do you really see? Yes your reflection is in the mirror, but do you just see your reflection, or do you truly see of who you really are? Because within today’s Society if we all looked deeply into what we see, just maybe we would all see that, all this ugliness and hatred is not truly of who we are. With all these ugly shootings that happen around us, like the one in New Zealand, when we clearly look deeply into what we see, we will see that this is a reflection of one or a few and never a reflection of who we truly are, this Individual or Individuals responsible for this shooting is clearly troubled and in dire need to dig down deep, to truly feel the love of Jesus Christ within them, as we all have that same love within us, the problem then lies with each of us, as we don’t truly feel and acknowledge that love enough, within this Society we walk together. Let’s look at some of the certain media types out there, this is 100% the reason why none of us can look deeply into what we see, as these media types won’t let us, with all the crap they feed us daily. Simply because of all the crap, we then never look deeply into what we see, as we just skim across the top, just to try to keep moving forward with as little pain and hurt as we can. Through the drama of the media, we are then looked at and laughed at often, which then furthers us to bury a big part of who we are, so deep within ourselves that, we then forget it’s there to spare us from any pain and hurt. The media wants us to believe their rhetoric, just for them to keep the drama flowing and we the people, never to truly look deeply into what we see and truly see of who we truly are. That mountain top experience you hear in the Bible so many times, it is not about the climb of the mountain, it is of that special feeling you get deep within yourself, as Jesus talks to you on the top of the mountain, that deep warm feeling that flows through your veins with the blood of life, that warm feeling that fills your heart with love and keeps it beating to the rhythm of life, you don’t have to be a Mountaineer to truly feel all of this, all you need is, to truly look deeply into what you see, so you than can truly be all that you are and share the love of God with each other. Then and only then, will all this ugliness end and all the hatred go away, so we can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness that Jesus Christ his son showed us, as he walked his journey here with us as well. ” Everything comes to us for a reason, it is us that see’s through the clouds and finds the reason” ” Lets end all this ugliness around us as we then look deeply into what we see and not superficially at what we see” ” Some may climb the mountain only cause its there, others for a Facebook page, but you don’t need to climb a mountain for the true mountain top experience” ” Forget about what the media try’s to feed you, just look deeply at what you see, to truly see the good in all that is around you”

Life is not about buying your way into a status………….

I get the fact that each generation through this society, should be better than the one of the past, but at what cost are we really paying, when we buy our way into anything, without working hard and paying the dues as we should? With this latest scandal of the paying big money to get your child into an elite college, who are the ones really being hurt here? It’s the ones that were rejected because someone paid big dollars to get their child in, without even working hard to be accepted into that college. The ones that were rejected may have just done everything right and everything as they should, but because someone has money, doesn’t give them the right to jump ahead of the pack, just to give their child the prestige, or the right to claim a higher status over their Peers.

Going to college wherever that may be, should be respectful and full of knowledge, for whom ever the person is that is going. College should yes be a fun time for any student, as well as teach our children, just how to work hard and when you work hard, life will reward you with big rewards. You think those children whose Parents bought their way into the elite college, will work hard for their knowledge? Exactly!!! They are going to think that you can buy anything in life, plus they are going to party everyday, instead of working hard to achieve great things, as they walk their paths through this journey of life.

I agree we all deserve some breaks from time to time, but only because you have worked hard for what you have, or for where you are? But when you buy your way into something only means one thing and one thing only, you simply have cheated the system and robbed someone else, for trying to help themselves and move forward, so they to can live the dream and earn respect with every step. We all have dreams, we all have hopes, but when you buy into something, now your shattering all hope and destroying any dreams away from another, while you are only thinking of yourself and no other.

Life doesn’t have to be about any status, nor does it have to be about money, although………… Yes you need money to pay the bills and live, but really now, life really is about being happy, peaceful and sharing your love and compassion with each other. the money is only extracurricular and by no means do we truly need it, just that in this society full of greed, we have come to attached to it, which has divided us, instead of bringing us together within the love and joy, that Jesus Christ brought to each of us everyday. Money may buy us material things, money may help us cheat and jump ahead of each other, but money will never buy true happiness, money will never buy us love, as love is already within each of us, we can’t take the money with us when we depart this journey, so why are we so hell bent on trying to acquire all the money?

” The only status in life that should matter, is your status with Jesus Christ, to keep the faith with great hope always”

” Instead of trying to show off to others with our wealth, may we try showing off Jesus Christ , for the true love and happiness always”

” College is good to be there for the right reasons, but not just to achieve a status”

The journey of Lent/Daylight savings

As the days become longer with the light of day and as we walk this journey through Lent, we now know that the season of camping is right around the corner, the season for us all to escape the daily grind and venture to the out doors, where Mother Nature is ready to show us her true beauty. Primitive camping where you pitch a tent and as you lay down to sleep within your sleeping bag, now you can listen to the heart beat of the Earth, listen to all the nightly sounds, like an owl waking from their sleep as they only can see clearly at night, maybe if your lucky you can hear the whispers of the night or maybe a nearby stream will comfort you to sleep with it’s running water?

With your camp site all set up and the camp fire ready for the night sky, you now can plan your day for tomorrow, maybe a hike up a mountain to see as far as you can from the summit of the mountain and as you walk up the trail, you may see some scenes you will never see within the daily grind. Yes it is true a hike can be a lot of work, but it is work much different than the daily grind, it is work that can relax you in the right frame of mind, let alone that it will help clear your mind from all the ugliness that comes with being within a society full of much ugliness. To escape within Mother Nature is a great way to unwind and totally feel the stress melt from your body. We within this ugly society and through the dark days of Winter, let way too much effect us and let all the ugliness consume us to the point that, we become bitter to all that is around us, we forget that there is a whole lot more to this journey of life than, what we see in our daily grind. Yes we all need a paycheck to pay the bills and survive in our lives, but we become so consumed with that…………. we then totally forget to take some ” me” time to unwind and cure our mind, body and soul, so we can walk our paths of this journey in peace and happiness always.

Within this picture is so much peace and serenity, when you sit by the fire and take it all in, look out within the beauty in front of you, you can actually feel the stress leave your body and as the stress leaves you, now you can actually hear all that is around you, listen to the sweet sounds of the different wildlife around you, even hear the fish jump out of the water, hear the Eagles soar by with the greatest of ease, the loons chatting back and forth from a far, not too forget the many different birds singing their tunes throughout the echoes of the sky. There is so much beauty around you, you then forget of the daily grind and even though just for a short time, it is time you now can heal yourself from all the ugliness, heal yourself from what consumes you through the dark Winter days, so now you can clear the clouds from your judgments and totally heal your mind, body and soul from the stress of the daily grind.

Let’s not forget that when you escape to the beauty of Mother Nature, you are now within the home of many other different life forms on this planet, just like we live in our homes and we would hate for others to come in and disrupt our homes, we are now within the homes of so many animals within nature, like bear, moose, deer etc…. So as you set your camp always remember to respect their home, as we would want others to respect ours. Leave no trace while you are there and when you depart back to the daily grind, when you leave no trace when you leave, then you can come back to still more beauty, as Mother Nature is constantly changing with all within it. The plant life, the tree’s and even the animals, change all the time, just like we grow from our young ages, so does all within Mother Nature and it is a beautiful thing, to escape within nature and witness all the beautiful changes. Sometimes the changes to nature comes from violent weather, or maybe fire, but through these kind of changes, it may take some time, but the beauty does come back, for us all to enjoy once again. We all walk our paths through this journey of life, with one of the great perks of this journey, is the taking of some time, to get out and escape the daily grind, to really enjoy the beauty of Mother nature, to be at peace and happiness with ourselves and as we then heal ourselves, to get back in touch with the love within us, so we than can share that love with each other, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” Daylight savings may have us dread the loss of an hour, but we do gain more daylight to enjoy the great outdoors”

” Earth has a heart beat just like we do as well, mother nature has it’s beauty as do we as well”

” camping season is the chance for us all to escape the daily grind and relax to heal ourselves from the ugliness and see the true beauty of this journey”

” Mother nature has so much beauty within it, you can clearly see it all when you look deeply within what you see”

Drama versus Common Sense

” With Drama a society will look in chaos like these washed up tree’s, with Common Sense a society will be as beautiful as this sunset”

***BowlingChef***

Drama is not of who we truly are, drama is brought on by a few who do nothing but stir the pot, to make the rest of our lives seem worthless and out of whack, just so those few can earn a buck on our pain. The problem lies with those of us who get caught up in the drama, as we get blinded to the point we can not see anyway out. This is what the Media tries hard to do, so we then buy their publications and they get rich from our stupidity. There is no media out there that does not have this mentality, even though some may try to hide it just to keep us hanging on their every word, then strip us of not just our hard earned money, but of our dignity as well.

Common Sense is something that is deep within each of us, just that through the drama it becomes lost from all our everyday lives. When we release the Common Sense from within, then as we walk our paths through this journey of life, it will then become as beautiful as all the different sunsets we may see within our lives. Common Sense is far from common within this society, only because we are all lost within the clouds of our judgments, instead of treating each other with respect and dignity, we chose to treat each other with disrespect, only because we simply don’t look at the ramifications of our actions and don’t think before we react. It is so much easier to use the Common Sense within, than it is too build any kind of drama around us, but because the drama is all around us, we then get caught up in it, without even taking a breathe and realizing of what we are doing.

All the media outlets out there today, use this drama to suck us in, as they try to control each one of us. Some of these outlets will use more fiction than truth, only because it plays right into their agendas, it plays right into the building of the drama all around us, to which we then think we have no control to any of this, but on the contrary…………. We do have all the control and all we have to do is, stop listening or reading their content, stop buying their publications, for when they feel the lighter bottom lines of their publications, then they have no choice but to change their ways, or quite simply………….. cease to exist within this society we are all within.

The beauty of Mother Nature isn’t just out there in nature for us to visit, that same beauty is within each one of us, just that through the drama, we forget to reach down deep and let it show. With the beauty within us is also the love of Jesus within us, it is this love that brings us peace and happiness, the love like the common sense when we keep it hidden deep within, we will then only see chaos and ugliness around us and then we become lost within the clouds of our judgments, we let the drama take control of who we are, instead of letting the love and common sense out, so we all than can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve and as Jesus taught us, when he came to us and walked his journey here with us.

” Drama is not natural as common sense is within us all and as natural as mother natures beauty”

” The true beauty is not just out there within mother nature, it is within each one of us as well”

” The drama of the media can be changed by each of us and by no means does it have to control who we are either”

Leave the hatred in the rear view mirror

” Through hatred we will always be checking the rear view mirror”

***BowlingChef***

Hatred is Satan taking over control of who we are, when we control of who we truly are, this is how we accept and recognize Jesus Christ within our hearts and souls. Nothing ever came out of hatred, except maybe ugliness like we see around us today. To look at what hatred does, all we need to do is, look back within the history of Mankind, to a point known as the Holocaust, this is what hatred does and nothing good ever comes out of hatred, not too mention the fact that some of us think that, Socialism is the best thing since the invention of the car? I got a news flash for you, just look at what Socialism has done to the country of Venezuela. Okay maybe some think it will never happen here in America? I got another news flash, Socialism is all about a one person rule, with that same person controlling all that you do, so unless we the people keep aware of whats happening, yes then it will happen here, whether you like it or not. Socialism is full of hatred and hatred is not truly of who we are. let’s learn from our history and leave the hatred behind, so we can move forward better and stronger within the peace of Jesus Christ.

Hatred comes too us in many ways, but hatred within sports has you never being able to either play or watch the sport you love. There is another Superbowl upon us, for those who may not know, a Superbowl is the last football game of the season, with the winner being the champion of that season. Over the last twenty years, there are the New England Patriots, with a quarterback names Tom Brady and a head coach Bill Belichek, who will be in their ninth Superbowl together, which is a record for both coach and quarterback of the same team, but as those who will hate on this team, will only achieve one thing for you and that is, the straight up fact that you will never enjoy this game for what it truly is and that is, it is just a game that an athlete not just plays, but truly gets to play the game they love. Anybody that says they don’t like winning, is only fooling themselves. Anybody that says they hate Tom or the Patriots, don’t truly know what the game of football is. Football is a game of strategy that is hugely all about being competitive, Tom is as competitive as they come, maybe just a bit more than another, but that is no reason to hate on him. My theory to all you hater’s is, ” You want to be a champion like Tom, then step up to the plate and beat a true champion”.

Hatred has never been good or kind to any of us, it is pure Evil from Satan, that does nothing but turns us all against each other at every turn. When we work together as God wanted us to, then we will all feel that warm feeling of love within ourselves, which is the love of Jesus Christ that is always within our hearts and souls, just that through this hatred, we don’t give ourselves a chance to truly feel the warmth, as we push it so deep within, that it becomes non existent, without any of us giving it a thought, or even acknowledging it’s existence. The love of Jesus Christ is the most beautiful thing we will ever feel and know, all we need to do is, truly feel and acknowledge it, so we all can move forward without looking in the rear view mirror and walking this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

” Hatred is ugly, as love is beautiful just like the beauty within this picture”

” Hatred will have us moving backwards, as love will always have us move forward with each step”

” Football is a game of strategy with the best strategy on that day winning the game”

Rest for the Weary

” Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

When we all struggle in our daily grinds and become Weary, we grab a cup of coffee, maybe a power nap to energize us, sometimes even a weekend away, but these things are just temporary for our outer bodies, what Jesus Christ offers us is, rest for our souls and we just have to come to him in order to receive the true rest we deserve.

When Jesus gives us rest, he is truly giving us peace and contentment within our souls, so we than can breathe easier, breathe in the quality air around us, as we breathe deeply, which is totally relaxing the mind, body and soul. When Jesus gives us the ultimate rest, he is giving us the confidence we need, to escape the frustration and the chaos of the World around us. Rest in him and don’t worry about what lies ahead, as Jesus Christ has already taken care of the tomorrow for us.

The forty day journey of Lent is right around the corner, a time where Jesus walked his journey sacrificing for each of us and now, as we walk through these forty days, we to need to sacrifice a piece of us, so we than can become one with Jesus, as he helps us by giving us our ultimate rest. This Lenten journey we sacrifice, will help us flush all the bad from our mind, bodies and souls, so we than can be left with good, which will allow us to breathe deeply the love of Jesus and totally relax, to get the true rest we deserve.

Sometimes as we walk through our daily grinds, we think we are getting rest and sleep, but all we are doing is closing our eyes, while the thoughts of the day still flood our heads with negativity, this negativity keeps us from truly falling asleep, as the negativity consumes us, it then controls every fiber of our being and without the faith in Jesus, we then will never be able to come to him, as we then will give up trying to come to him, so we can have hope and truly be at rest within our souls. When our souls are at rest and we can feel the love of Jesus within us, this is when all the chaos of the world leaves us, this is when we breathe deeply all the beauty around us, this is when we all can be totally at peace, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” Rest for the weary is more than just closing your eyes, it’s coming to Jesus so he can clear our souls of all the chaos of the world”

” The daily grind can and will consume us with the chaos and the negativity of the world”

” The coffee, the power nap, or even the weekend away are just a temporary fix, as Jesus fixes us permanently throughout this journey”

” The forty day journey of Lent is the time for us to sacrifice, as Jesus did for us”
