Get out and explore………

Now that Winter is almost fully in the rearview mirror, it is about that time to start switching gears and getting ready to get out within mother nature once again. Enjoying all the true beauty that is around you, enjoying the sweet smell of the fresh clean air, without the smog and funky smells of the city. Get the kayak ready and stretch out the camping gear, plus this season I will be attaching a go-pro to the kayak and taking some great video for my U-tube channel, maybe even attaching to my backpack for some hiking video as well, I also thought I never would, but I have also started an Instagram for another platform to show my adventures in mother nature and share some great pictures as well as videos. so now you can follow my words here, then my adventure trips on my twitter, my Facebook page at tireless freelance writing, my Instagram and let’s not forget some great video on my U-tube channel as well.

I can’t wait to get out within mother nature and leave this broken society in the rearview mirror for a while, spend a week or two within the woods full of adventure without listening to all the drama at every turn, the biggest problem within this society is, we all get so wrapped up within the unwanted print news or the tv news, that we forget there is so much beauty all around us. Then there is this thing called work, yes we all need to work to make the ends meet and take whatever adventures we take, but it is also good to step away from the daily grind, step away from the daily drama and all gossip that we try to avoid, clear our minds of all the crap so we can heal ourselves of our troubles and start fresh with a clean slate, to move forward better and stronger as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

I don’t know about you? But I am done with all this election crap, all the attacking of each other on the debate stage, I mean if you can not run for a public office on your own merits without attacking your opponent, then maybe you shouldn’t be running for any office at all, that is just my opinion. Then there are all the lies and making yourself out to be somebody you are not no wonder why this society is so broken? Now there are some who live for all this drama, the bickering, the attacking and get so consumed with all this crap, that they then forget that there is this thing called life, that you need to actually work at, so you can walk your path as smoothly as you can. Plus there are these candidates that offer free stuff as their pitch to get into office and there are some who actually buy into this pitch, who do you think will actually pay for this free stuff? You guessed it, the ones that actually work very hard and pay their taxes, so those lazy types can buy into all the free talk.

Mother Nature has a lot more to offer you than any so-called candidate, that will offer you the world and never deliver on what they offer, true mother nature can at times show her fury, but also true that she has so much beauty for us all to see as well and even better, with each trip into her back yard, you will always see something different. Then there is all the different plant life, some that you will never see in your daily grind, the so many different species of wildlife for us all to enjoy to see in their natural habitats, now as we venture within mother nature let’s not forget two major rules, 1, we are now in the home of all the wildlife, so we need to respect them as we want others to respect our homes, 2, always leave no trace behind and respect the land for future visits, not to mention so we can always venture into mother nature to see all the beauty and not the crap that some may leave behind. We all walk our own paths through this journey of life, so if we all come together in unity, respect each other, show empathy of each other, then just maybe we can eliminate all the crap, the hatred, and the ugliness, as we all move forward in peace and harmony always.

 

” The beauty of mother nature is all around us we just have to get out and explore”

 

” Respect goes a long way when each one of us does it together”

 

” If you can not run for an office on your own merits then maybe you should not run for that office”

 

” Mother nature is free and unlike what some may say you can actually venture out and enjoy all her beauty”

 

 

Sometimes the best precaution is…………..” common sense”

I guess you can say that I am with Mark Levin on this one, Mark is a V-Jay on the Blaze with Glen Beck, saying that he would rather take the advice of a healthcare official and not from Pelosi or Schumer. It is pretty sad when our so called leaders have to politicize even a virus, simply because they are so far in denial, they can not see the true reality of anything they look at. Now in this day and age with all the technology and social platforms, it is very true that everything spreads like wildfire in every direction around us, tragedies and natural disasters can be seen within minutes on all the social platforms, then you add in a media that will stop at nothing to achieve their big drama agendas, now you will have anything the size of a mogul, turn into the size of a mountain or even bigger.

Now I get the fact that this Coronavirus is crippling countries with many lives being lost, but unlike what some on the left are saying, there are safety measures being taken by all the countries, but what we of today simply forget is, when we use our common sense, we then don’t need our Governments to dictate what we should do and only aid us all to be safe moving forward. This Coronavirus is spreading around the world kind of like the virus of 1918, true 99% of us were not around then and maybe very few are still here from that time, but either way, we are not going to remember what happened 102 years ago, which makes it that much more important to glance back to move forward better and stronger, as the virus from 1918 took the lives of 50,000,000 people and what the media of today will not tell you is, both these viruses originated in China, so what is wrong with knowing the truth, so we can truly help fix what we need to fix, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life.

Very true there have been many more diseases and viruses that have overcome us throughout the history of us all walking through this journey of life, so instead of being like those on the far left and pointing the finger of blame in any way that they can for their agendas, maybe we should take a look back within history from time to time, so we then can be a bit more informed, use the common sense that is within us all, as we all move forward and not backward, throughout this journey of life. Yes within this society of great technology and the fact that we the people can be so dumb, that instead of using our social media platforms for good and informing us ahead of time for what may be coming, instead, we let the far-left liberal media dictate to us through their platforms of all the drama of everything, whether that drama be true or “Fake”. It is never too late to change what we may be doing, as change is also a huge part of this journey, the change will come to us in many different ways and when we accept change and adapt to the change, then the change shouldn’t be all that scary and come with minimal pain to us all, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” Change can scare the crap out of us all, it can bring great pain as well, but when we accept and adapt to it properly can be just as beautiful than this journey of life”

 

” Precaution is kind of like preventive medicine, we document it within our brains and let common sense do its thing”

 

” Sometimes we need to glance back in time to adjust and fix what we may be doing wrong now moving forward”

 

 

 

Get to the “Heart” of the judgment

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” You have heard that it was said to your Ancestors, you shall not kill and whoever kills will be liable to judgment. But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment”

Mt 5:21-22a

 

With this quote from scripture and as we truly decipher the words, you can clearly see that each one of us are guilty of sin, so I think we all need to enter into the house of God, so we can ask for his forgiveness, so we can move forward within this journey through life, without looking back and dwelling in the troubles of our pasts, keeping us within the walls of purgatory within this life.

God created us all as equals true there are some differences, but these differences are what makes us unique to each other, now in this society, we simply do not look deep enough to see any uniqueness, we judge way to quickly and when it comes to getting to truly know one another……….. Let’s just say it may be easier to walk along the shore of the beach and watch the waves slap the shoreline alone with our own thoughts. This journey through life was meant for us all to coincide, not to be divided or bicker at each other with each turn.

The heart is front and center as the most vital of our organs, the heart can become overcome real easily, but if we treat it correctly it can also bring us much comfort and joy with feelings of warmth. The heart will see everything as all our other organs send it the signals of life, the love of Jesus is also within our hearts which brings us the warmth of life, so we can move forward with strength.

Today we take for granted so much that we do not even think about what is most important until it becomes too late, we will get caught up with neglecting what is good, only to try to fit in with what we think is normal? then we think that if we do not actually pull the trigger of the gun, then we did not commit the sin of the murder, but what we do not want to think about is, once that even has become a thought, now the signal has gone within our hearts, to which the sin has already been committed long before the trigger has been pulled and now we need to walk into the house of the Lord, so we can have God forgive us and then we can forgive ourselves and others.

“Bless me, Lord, for I have sinned”, you do not hear these words all too much anymore simply because, with a few that do not have the faith let alone believe, they will cry and say that they have been offended until another will make an amendment that will prohibit anyone from saying those words, are you kidding me? Have we stooped to this level today? I think we all should go back to the basics, go back to the beginning of Mankind, go back to a time that we couldn’t even communicate with anything around us and we had to figure it out, or we simply became just another statistic as we walked through this journey of life.

This journey may seem hard to some, but it is really quite simple and all you need to figure it out is simple Common Sense. Now other societies of the past left us with good and a lot of prosperity, but within this society and our actions, we will not leave the newest generation with the same prosperity that we received, instead, we will leave them on their own to figure out, with no base to start from and use as a guide, for their actions to take them into a journey of peace, instead of a journey full of great pain and hurt. The guide for us here in America is the Constitution, which is why we all have to read it in its entirety, each country has its own guidelines, but this is another way of us showing our uniqueness, now I get that we will want to interpret these guidelines very different, but if we do not follow our heart, then our judgments along this journey will be within the clouds throughout this journey, then the pain and the hurt, not to mention the walking of the journey with no common sense, will have us all be within the division and bickering back and forth without truly listening to anything that is around us.

 

” Don’t skip any beat as the heart is the life of all throughout this journey of life”

 

 

” The killing takes place in the mind’s eye before any action has been taken”

 

 

” The sin is made when you simply think of the action, not when you actually take the action”

 

 

 

The division in clear sight

Last night at the SOTU address by President Donald Trump was as good a speech as I have witnessed in a long time, he nailed every aspect and accomplishments he has reached to this point, but the sad part of the night was, the Democratic party has further proved just how much in denial they are. Some of the Democrats didn’t even show up to represent, with the ones that were there couldn’t even get aboard the accomplishments of our President, now they all were most likely getting their cue from the speaker Nancy Pelosi, but if she jumped off the Empire state, I have reason to believe they would all follow to their peril as well. This is coming from someone who is an Independent and the state that the Democratic party is in right now will never vote for this party going forward.

Very true we are a country divided right now, but only because the entire Democratic party is so full of themselves, that they are creating this division with their actions, or should I say their in actions. Because of this Democratic party and the fact that they are so deep within the grasp of denial, they can not even reach across the aisle and work with their peers, which has made the walls within Washington DC become the land of the great divide, now very true that most Americans see clearly right through them and their hypocrisy, but their are some that see what they are doing and will do the same within their own little worlds. In the three short years of President Trump, he has more than lived up to his promises unlike those around him and with him as President, not only do I feel safe, but I clearly see all the good he has brought to this country while he lives up to his words, ” Make America Great Again”. You tell me something other than this Impeachment crap that the House has done………… That’s right, they have done nothing but bring more drama and hate to us all throughout this country of America.

All aboard the Trump train and if you miss the train then you will get left behind, as the train keeps moving forward regardless of all the crap around it. The Democrats do not want to get aboard not just because they are in denial, but they also want all the power and will do anything to get it, they have become like little children and when they can not get their way, then they revert to pouting and crying until we give in because we can’t stand it anymore, I have a news flash to all Democrats, there is no more giving in, either your with us and get aboard the Trump Train, or you get left behind, in your own little directionless world.

What these Democrats are doing today is everything our forefathers have protected us from when they wrote the Constitution of this great country, the problem then lies with the fact that I would bet that a high percentage of Democrats today do not even know what is in the Constitution, especially that AOC woman or the Muslim woman that came here by marrying her brother?  Corruption and hatred is what fills the walls of Washington DC today and exactly what President Trump means when he said he will drain the swamp, the swamp is deep and the swamp stinks just as much, but when all is clean and all get on the same page to work together, then this country of America will become truly great once again.

We all make choices everyday just as we made our choice to which path to follow through this journey of life, now not all choices are the right ones and we are all subject to making mistakes from the choices, but when we keep making the same mistakes and the same choices, only furthers just how deep we go within the walls of denial, then as the power of denial overwhelms us, we then lose all sight of true reality and try to make up this fake reality that only brings more pain and hurt to us, just that the denial has blinded us so, that we can not feel anything, let alone trust anybody who is around us, then there is the honesty? If we can not be honest with ourselves, then how can we be honest with anyone around us, which then leads to accountability? Same as honesty, if we can not hold ourselves accountable, then how can we hold others around us accountable?

The bottom line is if our so-called leaders can not get on the same page and work together for each of us to see, then how do they expect we the people to do so as they are the ones that are supposed to set the example. If draining the swamp means ending all the corruption and the hatred within the walls of Washington DC, then let’s all get aboard the #trumptrain and keep moving forward throughout this journey of life, for the betterment of this society, as we become stronger to make better choices and live within the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” The division within a country is solely upon its leadership as the people then become divided as well”

 

” Great leaders no how to lead even through all the resistance, the corruption, and the hatred”

 

” Not everybody can be a leader and not many are born to lead but yet we all want the power that the leadership brings”

 

Follow Jesus and be enlightened throughout this journey

” Come after me, and I will make you Fishers of men”

Mt: 4:19

 

 

 

We of this society would rather live in frustration for what we can not do than to truly follow and have complete faith in Jesus Christ, for he will truly lead us and never lead us astray anywhere on our paths of this journey. We of this society think that success comes from stepping on another’s shine, but true success comes from true faith in Jesus Christ to lead us to the path of righteousness, so we all can have hope moving forward with strength and be true of who we are.

Jesus Christ did not come here for himself, he came here for you and me to prosper on this journey, but yet we all within this society have gone the complete opposite of what he taught us as he walked his journey. We of this society think that we can do better at everything, that we do not need help with anything, we also think we are smarter than all those who have walked before us? We are all so confused within this society that we have lost the faith of everything that is good, which now leaves us with no hope moving forward through all the hatred around us.

This world today is so full of ugliness and hatred only because we have lost all faith in not just ourselves, but lost all faith in Jesus Christ our savior. This quote today is more than just what you may think of as being a Fishermen when you become a fisher of men, you have opened your heart and soul to Jesus Christ, you truly believe with true faith that Jesus is good and will never lead you astray, so now as you follow Jesus with your heart, you can then lead others to the same promise land, that Jesus has led you to as well. No matter how troubled you think you are, with the true faith and belief in Jesus Christ, you will always have the hope for a better and smoother path, as you walk through this journey of life.

No matter where you go throughout this planet, you can see all the corruption, you can see all the ugliness and hate, this is just how sad this society truly is today, it only goes to show just how many have lost all faith in themselves as well as Jesus Christ, which now leaves us with no hope moving forward and for those who still have the true faith, makes it that much harder for them to walk forward with confidence throughout this journey. Our so-called leaders can not truly lead anymore, even some who wear the cloth has lost this faith and have become corrupt with great ugliness, when all around us have become engulfed in this corruption, ugliness, and hatred, then where do we turn? We turn to Jesus Christ and reach down deep within, to truly feel his love for each of us, his love is always deep within our hearts and souls, just that we need to have complete trust in him, so we then can have complete faith and the hope will follow us all, all we need to do is, not only reach down deep within, but totally acknowledge Jesus, so he then can help us all no matter how troubled you think you are.

We all may walk our own paths, but the journey we walk them in is all the same, we all start out the same, then our paths bring us to different locations as some may intersect at different times, then we all have the same ending to this journey, but the biggest part is the fact that the time in the middle is where we all go wrong, especially when we lose touch with everything around us, lose touch with ourselves and most of all, lose touch with Jesus Christ our Savior. When we truly acknowledge Jesus and love him as he loves us, then no matter what trouble that may come to you, then our faith will never leave us as we will all move forward with the hope, to walk this journey in peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” A fisherman will catch the fish for all to eat and not starve, as a fisher of men will gather all in the love of Jesus to move forward to be better and stronger”

 

” Out of frustration we may do things not truly of who we are, out of love we can truly be of who we are”

 

” Corruption, ugliness and hatred are signs from Satan, as love comes from Jesus to help us grow in a positive way”

 

 

 

The Journey to the top

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The journey to the top can encompass many things, it’s not just hiking within the wilderness and reaching the summit of a mountain, it is also about reaching the pinnacle of your career and working your way to the top within the company you work. Both can and will be a lot of work, one being the hike up a mountain will drain you both physically and mentally, while depending on where you work it can involve more mental than physical? No matter which journey you are on, it will bring you great rewards when you achieve all that you want to achieve, especially when you reach the summit and not only breathe in the fresh air, but totally take in all the true beauty all around you.

The journey through the wilderness on your way to the summit of the mountain will hold so much beauty around you, that it keeps all your senses in tune to everything like the birds singing from tree to tree, the branches whistling as they sway in the breeze from the air, your sense of smell coming alive as the fresh aroma of the fresh air the plants and the wildflowers make your nose tickle with envy, your ears seem to be more active and amplified as all the sounds within nature have them totally in tune with all that is around you and will have you hear even a twig snap from a good distance away, then as you look out at what you are seeing, your eyes then will have you more in focus with all that you may come across as you walk the journey to the summit of the mountain and as you reach the summit of the mountain, now you really see clearly for many miles all around you.

The journey within the path you take in your career choice is a whole lot different than the journey to the summit of the mountain, the drive you have within you so you can work to reach the pinnacle of your career is similar but different as you work hard in your career, you now lose out on the true beauty around you, as you focus solely on the job and reaching the summit within the company you work. Now we all can not reach the summit within our career choices, but we all can reach the summits of the mountains we chose to walk a path upon, within our careers and with all our hard work, now we become too tired to venture out within an adventure, we then stay within our inner circles without getting out within nature, seeing all the same things day after day, keeping the same routines from week to week, then not only taking everything for granted but totally forgetting that there is a whole lot more out there and a whole lot more beauty around us as well. True that we need the journey within our careers to make ends meet, but if we do not acknowledge all the other journeys also, now the path we walk through this journey of life, just may become boring and have us wandering, instead of actually walking with confidence, all the little journeys within this one big journey.

The journey to the top of anything can and will come with some work on our part, but that’s just it, we need to work in order to reap all the benefits no matter what the journey for which we walk. Nothing comes easy and nothing will come freely, which is why we work hard, so we then can reap all the benefits and see all the true beauty that is all around us, at every turn along our paths of this journey through life.

 

” The journey to the top comes in many different ways and will always reward us in just as many ways as well”

 

” There is much beauty all around us with the key being we just need to focus and truly look deeply into what we see”

 

” When we are out of focus then no matter what we look at will never be clear for us to see”

 

 

Within the walls of Washington DC

Slide 8 of 59: In this image from video, Senators vote to table an amendment by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., during the impeachment trial against President Donald Trump in the Senate at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2020. (Senate Television via AP)

Okay, so here we go again except this time we are within the walls of the Senate. Now I get the fact that we need the two-party system in order for all to balance out, but when the two parties just can not get together on the same page and work together, then it is time to change the Individuals within the parties so our so-called leaders can actually lead and work for the hefty salaries they are getting, not to mention the free healthcare as well.

A Politician will say whatever they can to us, just for us to like them and vote for them, then as they enter within these walls, they lose sight of everything especially what they said before we voted for them, they walk within these walls with only one purpose and that is the purpose of themselves and what they can do for themselves, including the fact that they have their hands out to whoever will pay them the highest for their vote within these walls. A true Politician does not start out this way but they learn over time of how to do this and get away with it, as most Politicians are Lawyers, a Lawyer learns over time how to take certain words and spin them, so they can best represent their clients, which they then learn how to manipulate the system the best they can, to reap themselves higher profits as the rest of us pays more dearly then just within our wallets.

Right now within the walls of Washington DC, there are two parties, one that is far on the left and so far within the grasp of denial, that they have lost all sight of true reality. Then there is another party that is on the right, but some are okay and get it, yet a lot simply have no spine, as there is no one calling out or helping these denial ridden people out of the grasp of the denial. ” The entire Democratic party is so far in denial, they have lost sight of all reality”. Simply because the President we have now did not fit their current model of what they think a President should be, you now have an entire party doing whatever they can to disrupt this seated President and totally forgetting on the ones who put them all in the offices they hold. When you are within the walls of denial the power is so great, you then become someone for who you truly are not, you live within this fake reality only because you can dictate better of what you are doing, without realizing that you are only furthering the pain of yourself and all those around you. So until the entire Democratic party wakes up out of the grasp of denial, they will never see reality as the rest of us do, for which they will keep on the road of fake reality and not seeing anything eye to eye with whoever looks them in the eyes.

This is a sad state of affairs for us all here in America, as because of the nonactions from a party so deep within the grasp of denial, they will never do anything to help us be better and stronger moving forward, for they will only try to get us to move backward as they are doing. Common Sense is another thing that while in denial you lose sight of as it becomes non-existent anywhere around you, common sense is never to common when you are within denial, only because you are so concerned with escaping the pain and the hurt, that you only think of that and will do anything to get it done, while those around you become like a figment of your imagination. This entire Democratic party is so far in denial and can only see one thing and that is to end the job of a seated President that we the people put into the office, only because he is not one of them for them to control. Even through all the crap and the denial within the walls of Washington DC, President Donald Trump is still doing the job he promised when he ran as Candidate Trump, not to mention the fact that this economy is booming with the lowest numbers of unemployment in all categories, but when you have one party within denial, no matter what this President does, they will never walk together with our President, let alone walk together with their peers, to actually do the job that they were voted in to do. The time is now to end the time of a lot of the long term Democrats within the grasp of denial, put some new bodies in there that will actually work for we the people and actually help our President to make and keep America great for all that walk this land.

 

” Denial is a strong power deep within us and so strong that it will turn us into someone for who we truly are not”

 

” There is so much corruption within the walls of Washington DC and we now have a President doing as he says when he was a candidate”

 

” We pay our leaders heavily to lead us to be better and stronger, not to fill us with more drama and corruption at every turn”

 

 

The Patriot way……I am a Patriot

” They were overjoyed at seeing the star, and on entering the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, they prostrated themselves and did him homage. Then they opened their treasures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh  ”

Mt 2: 10 11

 

To all the fans of the New England Patriots, the Eagle has landed. Now this season compared to all the other seasons of the last twenty years was a very interesting season, to say the least. The biggest question to this team going into what is going to be a very interesting offseason is, should Tom Brady retire or leave what has become his home for another team and not just another team, but a team that has much more uncertainty then this team of the 2019 Patriots. Tom’s legacy is the Patriots and to go to another team, could very much damage that legacy moving forward. Now some of your armchair Quarterbacks who think they know the game better than Tom or even Bill, are going to say whatever they may about Tom and this team, they will even argue that Tom has lost the zip on his throwing of the football, but from what I saw after yesterdays game, Tom can still zip that ball with authority and into tight spaces where only his receivers can get it. The Receivers are whats to be really looked at seriously, the only one he has and he trusts is Edleman and when the opponent knows this and takes Jules out of the game, you now have a Patriot offense that becomes very predictable and easy to zone in on. Now yes Tom has made many no-name Receivers into a household name within the NFL in the past, so one will argue that he can not and should retire? If you really look at the game within the game as Tom and Bill do every day, the biggest thing with turning a nobody Receiver into a star is, if you do not trust the one that is the Receiver to do his job then you really can not be as effective as you were in the past. Trust no matter what sport you are playing, in conjunction with having guys on the team that can and will do their job, is the biggest reason why the Patriots have six Championships and some franchises struggling to even make the playoffs.

Now there will be a lot of your drama queen sports media types and your Monday Quarterback types that will say the Dynasty is over? On the contrary, as long as you have Tom Brady and Bill Bellichek, the Dynasty continues just with a much different supporting cast around those two. Tom has made New England his home and Robert Kraft looks at Tom as his adopted son, I find it very hard to see Tom leaving this organization he has worked so hard to help build. It is kind of like we as Individuals being born into a family, we grow within this family and help build a strong bond and a foundation, so to just up and leave that really isn’t that easy. True there will be struggles as the good times never last, but when the bad times come it is very easy to just walk away, but if you want to be better and stronger moving forward, you have to fight through the bad times, fight through the struggles, which not only makes you better and stronger but also makes your team better and stronger moving forward. Then there is the issue of Josh McDaniels, this guy is a great Offensive Coordinator and my opinion of this is when you are great at something you keep doing what you are great at as you receive the Respect of your Peers, Josh left for the Broncos and became a Head Coach and that didn’t work out too good, I say he stays here with Tom and Bill to help build this team with some very different supporting cast members and who knows? Bill, as well as Tom, will retire someday, then you can take the respect you earned and excel as the next coach of the New England Patriots.

Now some of your armchair Quarterbacks will say that football is a game and very different then this journey through life, I say very different as the game of football as well as other team sports only help you grow stronger as you walk your path through this journey. When you are an individual on a team this will make the game very hard for you, just as when you are an Individual walking this journey with no one around you, makes for a very difficult journey with many struggles. Just look at the walls within Washington DC with our so-called leaders, you have two teams that are supposed to be working together for the good of the people in the Democrats and the Republicans, but instead, right now you have a bunch of Individuals who are doing nothing but argue with each other and not doing their jobs. So true you can say two very different ideologies, but in reality, they are very much the same and when you have common sense, you can clearly see just how similar they are. Just as you have a team coming together showing trust of each other and doing their jobs to win a Championship and when you have a Government coming together through trust and unity, now you can have a society coming together in unity instead of being divided with much ugliness and hatred at every turn. Team sports and the journey of life are so similar, but if you never look deeply at what you see, then maybe you should look in the mirror as maybe you have become part of the problem, instead of being part of the solution for each one of us to become better and stronger, as we all walk a path through this journey of life.

 

” The Patriot way maybe for a team in the NFL, but to be a Patriot of a country you have to do it similar as all the other Patriots by making it the countries way”

 

” I know we all have our own opinions but we also all have our own Butt holes as well”

See the source image

The beauty of small-town America lives in many areas within this great country, now there are many small towns through the years that have not lived on for a variety of reasons and that is sad because small-town America was once the fabric that made this country truly great. A lot of these small towns have become what we know today as a Ghost town, these Ghost towns are deep in history, but once again we forget these places simply because we have become too lazy to learn the history instead, we want to think we are the trailblazer only because we are so engulfed in the idea of being in the limelight, that we forget that America had a past and a great past at that.

I lived in the great state of Colorado for some time, plenty long enough that I explored many areas within this state, whether on the beaten path or off the beaten path, as I had a four-wheel-drive truck, that would get me into a lot of places that a normal vehicle could not go. I drove up across mosquito pass from Breckenridge to Leadville, as high as 13,500 feet, this pass was also the old pony express route that would deliver the mail through all kinds of weather and what took me eight to ten hours, depending on me stopping at the old-time Ghost towns to view, would of taken the pony express two to four weeks to travel depending on the weather. Then there was another Ghost town just outside of Minturn, Colorado that was built literally on the side of a mountain, but people had to leave their homes as the water supply had lead in it, that forced them out. There were many small towns similar all through the state of Colorado it makes for a great state to visit and learn of the true history of America. There is a small town about forty minutes west of Denver called Georgetown, this was once a very vibrant silver mining town, that when times change and the silver wasn’t needed as much, went through some difficult times, a lot had left the town, but the ones who stayed had to think outside the box, as to keep this beautiful small town from turning into yet another Ghost town.

There are many small towns throughout this country of America, some still vibrant today as they had to reinvent themselves to stay afloat, while many others fell to become Ghost towns that are just buildings with no vibrancy or movement from Mankind. Within this society today we take so much for granted and the biggest thing is, we don’t take the time to learn from these pasts, so we then can move forward better and stronger. There is so much we can learn from these small towns, but yet today we are so arrogant that we think we are better than anything from our past? Within these small towns, you had people like you and me today, there are a few who came out of the small towns and made their marks within this country, now some had big impacts and are in the history books, some just for a short time which we do not really look at, then there are the ones who left the small towns to never again looked back? They have forgotten of their roots and have moved forward with only themselves on their mind, we of this society in a lot of ways are doing this now, as when we work our way up within the companies we work, we tend to forget of what it took to get to where we are today. There is a lot more to this journey through life then what is around us at the present time, the problem then lies with each of us not taking the time to explore and see some of what America was, instead we want to think that we are the smart ones and the trailblazers of this country, but if it wasn’t for America’s past and the small towns that built the foundation of this country, then truly where would we all be today?

Everything around you started somewhere, whether a small town or even that technology device in your hand, if you never look back in the past and learn from it, then moving forward will be either difficult or just the fact of, we become wanderers instead of truly walking our paths through this journey of life. For me the best way I have learned of these small towns, was the time spent in the great state of Colorado, only because when I wasn’t working I was exploring and not just what was on the beaten path, I ventured off the beaten path and came across some of America’s smallest towns that are now forgotten Ghost towns, that now is a time that most of us have forgotten with no desire to ever learn from.

 

” The small towns of America which some have reinvented themselves while others have become a forgotten Ghost town”

 

” A true trailblazer of any country will explore all of that country, learn all they can to help the country become truly great in the world today”

 

” The Ghost towns of yesteryear have become forgotten from this society, but at one time it was vibrant and what helped build the foundation of this great country”

This month is the most special time of the year, true some will struggle very deeply this time of year, but when we have total faith in Jesus Christ and with a total understanding of what Jesus meant to us, the struggle will never last, simply because with huge faith in Jesus then through any darkness he will help us see the light of hope, to heal us from our iniquities, so we can move forward in the peace and joy that this special time of year will bring.

With each one of us, this time of year can and will bring a wide range of emotions, these emotions will do one of two things, it will have us shut down from all that is around us, or it will have us act in ways that we normally would not, our emotions are at their most fragile when our foundation has become cracked for whatever reason, now as we keep Jesus Christ close to our hearts, then he will help us heal in the proper way, he will help us overcome all our sins, so we then can focus on staying true to who we are, so as we move forward on our paths of this journey, better and stronger with each step.

There is no booklet to this journey as well as no set way to walk through this journey, but when we let Jesus in to warm our hearts and souls, then we can truly be of who we are, what a beautiful difference throughout this journey of life for each and every one of us, as we keep Jesus close to us by always having faith in him, to keep alive the hope so we can move forward in strength and happiness always. Now there are some who have lost the faith in Jesus as they don’t believe in his existence, which would explain all the lost hope in this society, these people called Atheist may have lost all faith in Jesus, but what is more deeper is the fact that their emotions are worn on their sleeves instead of within their hearts and souls in the name of Jesus Christ. With how screwed up this current society is, it proves beyond a shadow of a doubt, that there are way too many that have lost faith in Jesus Christ, leaving this society with no hope moving forward.

Jesus Christ came to us and was born here on Earth at night, as the great north star lit the way for all to come view the new child of God. Jesus is the light that will guide us all from the darkness to the bright light of the path of righteousness and all we need is the true faith in him, as the hope for a brighter future moving forward becomes great. This is the most special time of the season and one that with good faith, can and will heal us all from our struggles, not just for this month but for all eternity as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” With good faith in Jesus Christ, there will always be hope for us all moving forward”

 

” The light of the world is Jesus Christ and with faith not only will it gives us hope, but this light will heal us of all our struggles and get out of the darkness”
