A Jolly old Fellow………

See the source image

Twas the night before Christmas and throughout the house not a peep was heard, for we all wait on the arrival of this joyful guy in the bright red suit. Santa Claus goes about his business as quiet as a church mouse, within the walls of the church, as come the rise of the morning sun, this Jolly old Fellow disappears for yet another year.

This merry old gentleman really does not have to disappear for another, as all his traits lives within us all, so we can share them with each other. Santa Claus loves to give and share, which are two of the traits that is within all of us. now as Santa comes along as we sleep, we all can totally give and share, as all we have to do is, totally feel the warmth of the love within each of us so then just like Santa, we as well can quietly spread our love within, with each other and not just one time a year, but everyday of every year, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Twas the night before Christmas, before all the children get tucked in to bed, they work on their letter to Santa and leave him some snacks on the table with the letter, then as they lay to sleep, they dream of Santa leaving all on their list, underneath the big Christmas tree for them to wake up to. Santa loves reading all the notes by the little children, almost more than enough of him eating all the plates put together by the children, as his tummy might give away.

Santa Claus…..Saint Nick……The Big Guy……. There are many names for the guy who brings us all much joy, a guy for which gives us all so much and never asks for anything in return. Some may say he is not real, but how can that be, when a big piece of him is deep within the hearts and souls of us all. Oh! Santa……. How though art though, you big jolly fellow, who brings smiles too many, even if they are a sleep when you show up.

Twas the night before Christmas, not a peep was stirring, not even the dog nipping into the chilly air, one of the quietest nights of the year, as we leave midnight mass, for the journey home, to get all tucked in, for the big jolly guy, to come spreading his love and sharing ways with us all. For a big guy, he sure does move around quietly, softly and without a peep himself.

” Oh Holy night, the best Christmas song that best describes………… Twas the night before Christmas”

” Silent night of the night before Christmas, even for all as we wait for the joyful Christmas day”

” Merry Christmas to all as we all bring the joy and peace of Christmas, to all the days of the year, each and every year during this magical time of year”

The True Christmas Spirit

           Just as this little tree is growing within this old tree stump, the True Christmas Spirit, grows deep within each of us, so we can become healthy, while we share the love of the Spirit with each other, moving forward throughout this journey of life. 

            The Christmas season is a lot more than just going to a store, fighting off the masses, just so we can buy the perfect gift, is there really a perfect gift? The only gift that should matter during this special time of year is, the gift of ourselves towards one another, especially those who are closest to us and are our Family, for whom we have a special bond, that we built a strong family foundation, that truly lasts the test of time. When you truly feel the warmth of the love of Jesus deep within your soul, then your heart will always be filled with this same warmth, especially when you truly have the faith in Jesus, as when he came to us, walked his journey truly showing us all that this love really exists. Jesus walked his journey with nothing but the faith of his father, the God that created us all, so we can walk our paths of this journey. With God our father, Jesus is our brother, teaching us that with faith, good will always win out over evil, leaving us all within peace and happiness always, throughout this journey we all walk. 

                  Now that we all decorate our tree’s, string the lights and get within the Christmas Spirit, Let us all truly feel the love deep within ourselves and not only share this love, but truly extend this love to last all year………….Every year. Through the love and faith in Jesus Christ, we all can walk in the peace and happiness always. The true Christmas Spirit doesn’t have to be just part of a season, as it can be very much a part of the journey we all walk, the Spirit lives within each of us, just we have to truly feel it, with complete faith in Jesus as well as ourselves. If we can beautifully decorate the Christmas tree within our homes, then we should easily, decorate the tree of love within us and feel it’s warmth every day of every year, throughout all our paths of this journey through life. 

                     Christmas is not that time of year to be spending within a store and waiting for inspiration to strike for the perfect gift. The perfect gift is already within us, maybe let the inspiration strike with a special hand crafted, made by yourself gift, that will Trump any gift, within any store. Inspiration can come from anywhere and when it does, plus when we just let the inspiration mix with the love within us, then we can create anything, that will totally help with spreading this Christmas cheer, not just throughout us all, but throughout all our paths, of this journey through life. 

” The true Christmas Spirit lives within us all and all we have to do is, truly feel it” 

” May we all truly feel the true Christmas Spirit and spread it totally throughout our paths of this journey through life” 

Twas the night before Christmas and not a creature was stirring, as we all wait for that special person to visit us all” 

” Santa Claus lives within us all, as we truly feel the warmth of love and unleash it to all for who is around us” 

I am Offended!!! Time to grow up.

” What is offended? Someone who is hurt, annoyed and disgusted. Your feelings become hurt by something, so you then become offended by anything that reminds you of that”. 

” Like the movement of the #meto, this movements had great intentions at the beginning, but when someone in the movement is offended by anything having to do with sex, but then goes to a rap concert, that sings about Gang Rape? Then what really offends you”? 

                                                                                  ***BowlingChef*** 

                    Seriously…………. We of this Society are so screwed up and become so easily offended by anything, time for us all to simply grow up, fix what we need to fix, so we all can move forward better and stronger along this journey of life. Just because something or someone has come across your path and disrupted your journey, doesn’t mean you should disrupt the journey of everybody else? We all have feelings, we all react  differently to the same things, but we should never let these reactions, have an affect on all those around us. 

                    We all have been hurt by something or someone throughout this journey of life, there is no one exempt from this. The problem then lies with each of us and what we do with this hurt? What is the proper way to end our pain? Do we bury it like nothing happened? Or do we take corrective action to be better and stronger moving forward? I think the latter is better, so we can fix what is needed to continue moving forward throughout the journey. True that if only we fix our own issues, than just maybe? Whatever that has come to you and reminded you of a past traumatic event, now that same event won’t effect others around you, as you now become offended of everything, instead of fixing one thing, which is a lot easier to fix one thing, than to multi task at many things all at once. 

                     Now I don’t know about you, but almost all the time when all this stuff we are offended of comes to light is, right around one time of year and that is the Christmas season. This is suppose to be the most magical, the most loved, but yet we are so troubled during this time of year? You think it is time we all take stock in our lives, do sort of an inventory of ourselves, to not just clean out the old, but fix and repair ourselves, so we can move forward better, move forward without anymore hidden hurt, bringing us much pain. It is pretty sad that something from one generation, which was all good, now suddenly offends the new generation, which now has us all changing what was, to what is, so we can not offend who is around us. 

                       Love…………………Love is the answer to all the questions, especially the questions of us being offended by whatever crosses our paths through this journey of life. When we love each other instead of hating on one another, then there is no talk of being offended by anything that may cross our paths, when we become hurt and feel real pain of anything, then through the love we take a step back, fix what we need to fix, so we then do not suppress anything deep within, which will most definitely rear it’s ugly head once again later on at some point of this journey. We all need to be more sincere of this word love, this is a special word with a special feeling deep within us all, it is not a word to be thrown around loosely, like it is a word without meaning. We throw this word around so much and at everything we see, that this word has totally lost the true meaning it once had.   

                        You think these people that are talked about in this picture, are worried about being offended? Exactly right, these people were too busy working hard, to build themselves as well as their community, so they all can move forward better and stronger, throughout this journey called life. When you become to focused on offending someone, you are now stopped, you are no longer moving forward and life is passing you by. A big part of this offended era is, Social Media. Now there are many and I do mean many Social media platforms out there, each one will have you believe that they are the best one? But what they won’t tell you is, they are all the best ones for not only creating much drama in our lives, they are also responsible for making us offended by everything, other than the platform for who they are. Everything was so much simpler before the time of this Technology explosion, which brought us all the Social media platforms, We all worked hard walking our path, so this journey could be more of peace and happiness, for ourselves as well as those around us.  When things went wrong back then, we took the time and responsibility to see where we went wrong, fixed what needed to be fixed, to move forward better, in today’s Society and within our social platforms, we have become so lazy, that it is easier to suppress, than to work at anything that is well worth the work. 

” We need never suppress our true feelings, as they will always come back later and disrupt us even more the second time” 

” Love is always the answer as hate will only compound any situation of this journey through life” 

” Social media like everything else started out with the best of intentions, but we have turned these intentions into a negative and against everything good it once was” 

In Death comes an ending to this journey of life……..

” In Death may sound really permanent, but how do we really know, until the day the journey ends”                What a beautiful Funeral for A great man in George HW Bush, he may of been our President for only one term, but he truly made that term count, with his actions throughout that entire term. A man from the ” Greatest Generation”, a generation that we of today owe a huge debt of gratitude to, simply because, they fought the good fight, so we today wouldn’t have to, plus………….. They fought the good fight, so we of today can be free to do all we do, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.                   What President Bush brought more of to the walls of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue was, Faith. The Faith in God our father, as well as Jesus Christ his son and our brother. He and his wife Barbara together brought love, respect, dignity, honor, class and the fact of them being good Human beings that, never became to big and always cared deeply for all those around them. President George HW Bush was as solid as they come, he knew just how to be stern, but yet do it in a way that, he never came across as stern, he knew just of how to motivate those around him and never once has anybody ever had an ounce of madness toward him. Now irregardless of which side of the aisle you were from him, he didn’t care, as he had a great gift that brought people to the table in comprimize, so we all can be better and stronger moving forward.                        Death is that something that scares us all deeply, as we will always have a fear for the unknown. Death is that thing we think of as dark, but is it really dark? Or is it really full of the brightest light, just we as Humans making it dark with our fear. We look at Death as being permanent, but just how permanent is it really? As with the Faith in God our father, then truly there is a Heaven, so we than can walk in the valley of heaven in the peace and happiness, that we miss so dearly here on Earth, throughout this journey of life. Our souls rise to Heaven, with our bodies staying put within the coffin, this is where the eternal life comes, that Jesus talks to us about, when he came and walked this journey here with us.                       With the beautiful funeral of our beloved President Bush come to a close, may the beauty never leave us moving forward, as our beloved President being finally at peace, may his family finally be at peace also, while they grieve properly, not just of the father they just lost, but for their mother, just a few short months ago also. Death will eventually come to us all, which makes it even that much more important, to walk this journey correctly, so we have no regrets and no sins, from asking for God to forgive us, as we forgive ourselves from all wrongs.  ” Is death really an ending, or do we simply fear it so, that it seems so cold and dark”  ” President Bush 41 was a great man for us all to follow and have him become a role model to us all” 

Respect and Honor

Slide 1 of 25: US President Donald J. Trump, with First Lady Melania Trump, salutes the casket containing the body of former US President George H.W. Bush in the Rotunda of the US Capitol in Washington

           Within this Society of today, there are two things for which we have not only taken for granted, but we buried these two things so deep, we have forgotten just what they are anymore. The two items in question are, Respect and Honor and with this picture, that speaks very loudly with no words, has Respect and Honor front and center before all our eyes to see. 

                George HW Bush was a great man that with his life long actions of 94 years, has truly deserved all of our respect, with 100% of us all Honoring him and his family at their time of great loss. True that he came from money, but with our past President he didn’t care, as with his actions proves of just how great he was. He went into our military and fought through World War two, true he may not of been all that charismatic like some other past Presidents, but President George HW Bush had his own way about him and that way is, what brought him into legendary status and one of the true greats, within the history of the United States of America. 

                     This picture really needs no words, as the image itself speaks louder than any words can, the Respect of one President toward another and Honoring his great life with a salute, as his journey has sadly come to an end. Then there is the First Lady, with her hand placed directly over heart, while she shows Respect and Honoring him at his journey’s end. The red and white roses for his true love of his country, with his casket draped with the colors of the American flag. President George HW Bush may not of been a man with many words, but his actions spoke very loudly, as with this picture that needs no words, with the images of the picture speaking as loudly, as any words could ever speak. 

                      Now go and Rest in Peace President George HW Bush, your mission is complete with all that you have done personally and toward your country, you have raised a great family, as now it is their time to truly show you of just how great they are with their actions. You have a lovely Wife of 73 years waiting for you in your new home within Heaven, she is waiting for you to come to her, take her hand and whisk her away,as you did 73 years ago, so now you both can be back together, within the peace and the happiness that Heaven is all about. Yes it is true we will miss this great man, but his Wife Barbara Bush is calling him home once again, to live within the love, happiness and the peace, which is what makes up Heaven and one day as we all walk our paths of this journey through life correctly as our past President, we to can enjoy the love, happiness, and peace as well, with no reservation.  

“Honor and Respect go hand in hand as with them both, there are no words , just great actions and a big warm heart” 

” Let’s not forget Dignity, as with the Honor and Respect, gives you great dignity of a job well done” 

” It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words? That is because, a picture like this needs no words, but yet speaks very loudly” 

Faith in Jesus Christ always

               Can you see him? Look closely and with total faith, you shall see the face of Jesus Christ within this stump. The eyes, the nose, the mouth and wearing the crown of thorns upon his head, Jesus is everywhere and with total faith in him, you shall see him wherever you are. You see that is what’s wrong within this society, too many have wandered away from having faith in Jesus, as they think they can do without him? This is totally why we have so much corruption, ugliness and hatred around us today, plus without the total faith in Jesus as well as the total faith in ourselves, now we walk our paths of this journey through life, not just without a purpose, but with many troubles, whether we want them or not? 

               Jesus didn’t come to us just to walk this journey, he came to us out of love, he came to us to show us, just how to get to the path of righteousness, he came to us to show us that, no matter of what troubles you, when you hold him deeply within your heart, then there will be a warm feeling of love that will have you glow in joy and when you glow with joy, then it will permeate throughout all else who walk this journey as well, while the love of Jesus spreads like a wildfire through a forest.

               Now as we enter into another wonderful Christmas time of year, let us all remember the true meaning of Christmas, the day that Jesus was born into this World to walk his journey with us. Also with this day full of love, let us truly feel the love, so we than can spread it with each other and make this season even more wonderful, plus have it last all year, everyday.

” Through love there will never be any hatred, as there is no more room in the Inn for the hatred”

                    When we have total faith in Jesus Christ and ourselves, there will always be hope for better times on the horizon, as we then will be better and stronger along our paths, to face any kind of troubles that may cross our paths. We will be better at recognizing any kind of trouble that may be ahead of us, so we than can not only be ready, but be strong enough to fight off whatever the trouble may be.   We as we walk our path of this journey, are on borrowed time, or within rented space, simply because, we to are born into this World with a new beginning and with every beginning, there must always be an ending also. We all have the love of Jesus Christ within us always, just that this thing called ” Life” can and will overwhelm us, plus it will get in our way of truly having any faith, which then leaves us with no hope, for any kind of positive future throughout this journey. 

                    None of us really didn’t lose the feeling of love within us, just that we let all the ugliness consume us so, we let life get in the way of us entering the house of God, not just to worship him, but to chat with him, to forgive us of our wrongs, so we than can, forgive ourselves to truly heal from what hurts us so. Now let this Christmas season inspire us, let this season help us get back in touch with the true love of Jesus, so as not just to warm our souls, but to truly share it with each other, to help us all heal our wounds from the pain and hurt, that has us so troubled, as all the hatred and the ugliness goes away from us and we finally walk within the peace of Christ moving forward along this journey of life. 

” The love of Jesus Christ is always within us, we just need true faith in him and ourselves to truly feel it’s warmth” 

” Jesus is everywhere and can be seen everywhere, no matter of how you look at whatever you are looking at” 

” The warmth of the love of Jesus will and can, heal us from all our troubles we encounter on our paths”

RIP President George HW Bush

Bush, with president-elect Ronald Reagan, right, visits Capitol Hill after the 1980 election. Bush served eight years as vice president under Reagan before succeeding him in the presidency.
              Regardless of who you were, or whatever side of the aisle you were on, there is no debate, on just how much of a good man Bush 41 was. President George HW Bush, with his wife Barbara, brought class and dignity as well as a stern voice, to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. No matter of what you say about his political decisions, you can never and I repeat……….. ” never”, say anything bad of George Bush Sr the man. Those of us who grew up here in the state of Massachusetts, he was born here in Milton and went to the private school of Phillips Academy. His wife Barbara was a resident of Maine, so the two of them were closer to us than we may think and not just being famous as the President and the first Lady.                   This picture here of President Ronald Reagan and then Vice President George HW Bush, smiling and waiving to their supporters, as they get ready to serve their first term, leading us to greatness here in America. Both of these guys brought class, respect and dignity to the office for which they held, with their Wives right there by their sides with every step. We here in America have never been so blessed, to have such class within the walls of the White house and yes they will always be there, within the history of this great Nation.                     All of us here in America are heart broken and saddened, as we wake up to this very sad news, so as we send our prayers to the Bush family at their time of this great loss, let us all remember a smiling and happy George Bush, as he is back with his wife of 73 years, Barbara Bush and truly living happily ever after once again.                       May we all learn from the path of President Bush, now yes his family had money and he attended a private school, so maybe he never struggled as some Americans have done, or do? But there is no denying the fact, that when you walk a path through this journey of life as he did, with respect, dignity and class, then the same comes back to you as you move forward into your Golden years. These three categories of respect, dignity and class does not require any money, as they are all within each one of us, just that we all need to release them from our souls and let the power of the three, live among us with our actions. It is we the people as we get so consumed with all the ugliness and hatred around us, that with our actions, or better yet inaction’s, we lose and bury deeper within ourselves, the class, respect and dignity, this is when we treat each other as we should never treat anybody around us, when we do this, we are not being truly of who we are and then we think? We are owed the respect, dignity and class of others, without we ourselves giving it back, or even better, we ourselves starting the action and setting a good example, as did President George HW Bush.                               We are a country in mourning as we lost a great man in President George HW Bush, A man that walked his path of this journey the correct way and with his wife Barbara of 73 years, showed us all that when you treat others as you yourself would want to be treated, then nothing but good will always surround you and life itself will always reward you, when you walk your path correctly throughout this journey of life. May you Rest in Peace Mr. President, as you are back together with the love of your life Barbara and prayers to your family, as they get through this very difficult time of grief from your loss.  ” A loss of any kind is difficult for us to deal with, when a loss of a great man taken from us all, makes us a country in mourning”  ” America lost a great man today, A man with great respect, dignity and integrity, but as we show the same of each other, then he will look down on us with a big smile”  ” When we all walk our paths of this journey correctly, we to will be rewarded greatly as President George HW Bush”  ” If we all set such a great example as Bush 41, all our paths of this journey will be walked in peace and happiness always” 

The Majestic………The Grand

                Every time I look at this hotel, I think about Stephen King’s the shining, a glamorous but yet old hotel rich in history. This hotel has been around as long as I can remember. The only thing though, I have never stayed at this hotel, when I wander up that way, I am usually staying at one of the mountain huts, or within a tent set up at my base camp, for a good nights rest by night and a good hike throughout the daylight hours.  I am sure this hotel, known as the Mount Washington hotel, has it’s own stories to tell, just like the hotel in the movie the shining, plus they both have something in common and that is, they both are surrounded by beautiful mountains and fresh air.                    When I was younger and hiking through these great mountains by day and staying within the huts on the mountains by night, the crew at these huts would embark in an after dinner story telling time and usually these stories were of the Ghost story kind, now whether these stories were fact or fiction? is totally up to the ones listening. With as old as the Mount Washington is, I am sure it to has it’s own Ghost stories to tell. Maybe one day I will stay at this hotel and totally take in the full ambiance of the hotel, including listening to the hotel itself and what it has to say, including all the old structures with it’s crackling and squeal of the hinges, when you open and close the door, but maybe the maintenance man has been busy with the grease, greasing up the old parts of the hotel?                       These mountains in the back drop of this grand hotel are part of the Presidential range, within the white mountains of New Hampshire, with all the mountains on the range being named after past Presidents and yes of course, Mount Washington is the tallest at 6,288 feet right behind the grandest of hotels in the area. The white mountains are like a second home to me, as I have hiked quite a few of them, I am also very close to being able to say I have hiked all the mountains in New Hampshire over 4,000 feet, with only five peaks left. True…………..yes I am getting older, but this beauty within these mountains, is what keeps me young and what keeps me healthy everyday. Now that don’t mean I don’t have aches and pains, especially with all the miles I have acquired on my feet, but it is good aches and pain, as I totally enjoy being outside and one with Mother Nature.                         I have also lived in Colorado for a few years and yes it is an awesome place to live, while you also explore the back country of the state. I would either take trips in my 4×4  up some quite steep and rural mountain passes, or I would set base camp and take on some great hiking as well, where I have been at the highest of my lifetime so far at 14,500 feet, up a mountain named, mount Albert. Totally different than the White mountains, each has their own beauty, as they to, like we Humans are very unique to each other. You can not compare one to another, as they both are very special places to me and within my heart forever, which no one can take that from me. We all have our own special places that we hold dear, these places may mean nothing to others, but to us………..ourselves, they mean the world us and no one can take these places from us. Plus as we walk our paths through this journey of life and with all the ups and downs of the journey, we can in our minds go back to these places, to truly have some solitude within ourselves, as we take the pitfalls of the journey and turn them into big success, to keep moving forward better and stronger, throughout the rest of our journey through life.  ” Having solitude for us is important, as it helps us heal within to be better and stronger moving forward”  ” Get out and explore, who knows you just may connect with your inner self and discover great solitude and happiness”  ” Ghost stories fact or fiction, you be the judge of what you truly believe”  ” Feeling of accomplishment will help you move forward better and stronger always” 

The Kingdom of all Kingdoms

” Jesus answered, ” My kingdom does not belong to this world, if my kingdom did belong to this world, my Attendants would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews, but as it is, my kingdom is not here.” 

                                                                             *** Jn 18:36 *** 

                  The Kingdom of God is truly the highest and most rewarding for each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life. When Jesus died on the cross for each of us, was buried and ” Rose” again for all, so we can renew our faith in him and his father, he rose to the one true kingdom of his father, where there is nothing but peace and happiness for all. Now as we all walk through this journey of life, we think from our arrogance that, this is the kingdom of God and why would he let all this hatred and ugliness within his kingdom? Simply because this is not the true kingdom, it is only a journey, with many twists and turns, that gets us ready for the day of the judgment, that then brings us to the true kingdom of God, so we than can have all the peace and happiness, that is within our hearts, souls and dreams. 

                    This journey through life we all walk here on Earth is not perfect, it will bring us much pain, hurt, sadness, as well as happiness, not too mention it will try to control of who we truly are, but as we walk through this journey, it will test us, it will see just how strong or weak we are and as we walk this journey, it is our actions that will help us in achieving the judgment to enter within the one true Kingdom……….. The Kingdom of God, the father of our savior Jesus Christ. 

                    For those that have ventured out within Mother nature and really seen the true beauty, like what is within this picture, you will truly see that, there is so much more to this journey through life, than just what we see on our daily nine to fives? We were created to explore, we were not created just to sit still and criticize each other. It is we the people that are totally responsible for all the hatred and ugliness around us today and unless we get out of the denial, that has a grip so tightly on us today, we will never escape the ugliness and hatred, which will leave us on a journey of negativity, instead of a journey of love, peace and happiness, it is our actions that determine our fate along this journey and if we do nothing, then the hate and ugliness will forever surround us, with no light at the end of the journey, which is the true light of the path of righteousness, that leads us out of the temptation  of this journey and into the true kingdom of God, as we all have eternal life within peace and happiness. 

                      With our actions it will help us keep the faith in Jesus Christ, which then will help us keep the faith of ourselves, so we than can always have hope, to be better and stronger, as we achieve all that we want to achieve, without having any ugliness or hatred slow us down along our path of this journey. I get the fact we all want to reach a high level of achievement, but at what cost do we want that achievement? not everybody can be at the top of this journey, but yet we ourselves and our arrogance, will have us think we are better than those around us and that should have us above all else? We are not better than each other, we are only unique to each other and unless we escape the grips of the denial, we will never end all the ugliness and hatred that surrounds us now. 

                         The true Kingdom of God is a special place, that surrounds you with real love, peace and happiness. Some of us today may think that our chances of entering into this Kingdom upon judgment day, will never happen? On the contrary, Jesus always forgives and even when we think there is no hope for us? Jesus will forgive us and when we except Jesus within our hearts and forgive ourselves of all our wrongs, that is when the power of God and his son Jesus are the strongest, as they truly forgive us, so we than can right the ship and walk this journey better and stronger moving forward. 

                            The spot in this picture is truly peaceful and will totally relax you as you sit and enjoy the peace, with all the daily stress simply melting away and the drooping of your shoulders from the weight of the stress, making your posture much better as your shoulders go back to where they originally were. Love, peace and happiness are the three keys to a successful journey, leading into the true kingdom of God and with all three of these keys, plus the complete faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, now your on the true path of righteousness, which totally at judgment day, helps us enter into the true Kingdom of God. 

” Judgment day is that day we all reach along this journey, when the journey comes to an end” 

” The kingdom of all kingdoms, is the one we meet Jesus at the gates upon judgment day at the end of the journey” 

” Love, peace and happiness are the keys for true faith in Jesus and ourselves, so we all can have the hope in reaching the path of righteousness”

” Thanksgiving traditions are very different as we are so unique to each other, each tradition is so very special to us all” 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                         *** BowlingChef*** 

           The very first Thanksgiving dinner never included turkey, as it had Water fowl like duck and geese, venison, corn etc…. These are the products that the Native American Indian and the Pilgrims came together and bartered with, as they sat down together and had a grand feast with each other. The turkey didn’t come til much later, like 1816 during the Abe Lincoln Presidency, when he requested turkey to be served for Thanksgiving dinner. This later became a tradition throughout all America for many American families. We all have our traditions, there is no wrong traditions, the only wrong thing is not having a tradition to look look forward of,  or forcing on one another a tradition that may not be wanted by some. A tradition is something special for which we hold dear, something we look forward to, something that helps us move forward to be better and stronger moving forward. 

              Thanksgiving has always been as long as I remember, the special time of year for so many to come home, from where ever their path may have taken them. To come back home to their families renewing the strong family bond and visiting old friends from their growing up days. That night before Thanksgiving has always been the best night all year, for all the local watering holes, as throughout all the towns across America, their local watering holes are packed with old friends, coming home and rekindling their lives together, while catching up on their lives here in the present.

                Thanksgiving has always been that time of year for us all to reflect and be thankful for not just all we have, but for all those who surround us and keep us moving forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Even if you think or maybe you don’t realize? We all have something or someone to be thankful of. Being thankful and saying thank you are two different things,when you say thank you when someone does you a favor or service is just a way to be polite, being thankful of something or someone, gives you a warm feeling of love deep within your heart and means a whole lot more not just to you, but to all those around you, not too mention, when we are all thankful and it spreads throughout all of this journey, then all our paths become more peaceful, full of happiness always. 

                 There are all different modes of transportation used by each of us to come home, that is the second best part of the journey coming home, as nothing will ever beat the ” Welcome Home” part of the journey. Whether taking a road trip, flying, or taking the train, it’s exciting for this part of the journey, then as you reach your destination, then the excitement is followed by beautiful emotion, as you rekindle the bond of what family is all about. True we all have to go out and live our lives and a lot of times it’s away from those we hold dear, but the true meaning of Thanksgiving, will have us all taking the journey home, to rekindle the special times of our pasts, so we than can move forward better and stronger always, throughout this journey of life.

                   The biggest thing for all of to never lose sight of is, some never take the journey back home, especially those within our military, these men and woman put themselves in harms way everyday, so you and I can take the journey home to rekindle our family bonds and the bonds of friendships past. So let’s never forget these brave souls as we say grace, giving great thanks to these Individuals before we feast on this Thanksgiving day, we all have so much to be thankful for throughout our journey through life, so on this day of Thanksgiving, as we rekindle with each other, let’s also give a big thank you to all those who have served, who are serving, showing the ones that will serve, that their time will never go unnoticed and we will always be thankful, throughout this entire journey through life.

” Thank you Jesus Christ for all you have done, so each of us can walk this journey in peace and happiness always”

” Thank you to all the men and woman of our military, so I can be free to do all I do throughout this journey”

” All traditions are different, it is not wrong to have a different tradition than another” 

” A tradition is something we hold dear, it various from person to person”
