Create the plan, then work that plan

” Jesus summoned the twelve and began to send them out two by two and gave them authority over unclean spirits”

Mk 6:7

God didn’t just create all that is around us on a whim, he had a plan and he carried out that plan. What he never planned on was, the way we have taken his plan for granted, as we just move forward with our own intentions, whether how right or wrong those intentions are. God’s plan was for us all to live together in unity, so we could carry on with the creation of God and live in peace. God had help with his plan, as his son Jesus came to us and taught us many things, so we can continue to stay in unity, so we can prosper in many ways, there were many others like Moses, who came to lead us into the path of righteousness, but still today we venture away from that path and separate ourselves from each other, which now the ugliness of Satan has come to try to take us away from all the good.

There has been many who have walked this journey, who have tried to divide us and take us away from the good of this journey, but the good has always won out, simply because through good there is unity, and with unity there is strength in numbers, with evil comes division, as now you are alone to fight off the bad, which brings you much pain and hurt. God knows that none of us are perfect and we do make mistakes, but through his son’s journey here with us, he taught us how stay true to ourselves, stay true to Jesus Christ, so we then can have the faith and keep all hope right in front of us, as we walk our paths together, so the journey becomes peaceful, with much joy and happiness for us all.

Within this society of today, there are many trying really hard to divide us, so they can seek all the power over all. They will do anything they can for us to fear everything around us, so we look to them to lead us further into the darkness. What has been happening for many years now, especially the last couple years, has been nothing short of some, trying to gain all the power over each and every one of us. When we stay strong and true to ourselves, with the faith in Jesus Christ, then we will bring that to each other, so we all can stand up to the fear, see through the darkness, come together in unity and truly see the light at the horizon, as we keep moving forward toward that light and out of the darkness. Then we can get back to the peace of God and his plan he had for us all.

There is this trail here in the east known as the Appalachian trail, this trail takes a lot of careful planning, so you can walk the 2100 plus miles of this trail. With the right planning, setting up your replenishment spots along the trail, being prepared with the proper items within your pack and plenty of water to keep hydrated, now with the water it may be hard to actually carry the weight of all the water needed, so now you need to at least bring an empty bottle with a screw top, so you can have a filter sytem that screws onto the bottle, and as you fill the bottle with fresh water from the clean mountain streams, you now can drink clean water through the filter and stay plenty hydrated along the trail. There comes a lot of careful planning with this trail, mapping out the route, getting to the nightly rest areas to set camp for the night for a much needed sleep for the next days journey, when all is properly planned it makes for a safe and happy journey, but when it is not planned out correctly and your not prepared with the right items in your pack, this can make for a very bad and painful journey, with much hurt that can come to you for a very long time as well.

Jesus had his followers go out with a partner so they can show that, when there is another walking side by side, we can go much further and walk with confidence within the darkness, to reach the light on the other side. We can do so much more along this journey, when we come together in unity. We can work together on a plan, then come together and work that plan with confidence. Everything we do has a plan, just that Satan also has a plan, with his plan being, bring as much darkness to us all, so we fear everything that comes before us along our path. The fear is what keeps us from working the plan, as we know hide within, to try to stay away from all the pain and hurt of the darkness. This is what some among us want, they want us to get away from our plans and follow them with their sick twisted plans, to lead us further into the darkness and away from the light of Jesus Christ,

God had a plan when he created all this beauty around us, he wanted us to truly see this journey, as we create the plan the best we can to walk our paths through this journey, with much peace and happiness with each step. There are many plans being made all around us, so if we get caught up in the wrong plan, this could have us within great pain and fear, that will keep us from seeing the light of the right plan, to be one together in unity, so we all can walk our paths side by side, within the great plan that God made for us all. May we all come together in unity and create a great plan within the faith of Jesus Christ, as the hope for a well walked journey comes to us all, away from all the ugliness of Satan, as we see all the beauty of God, to continue in his peace, love and happiness, he envisioned for us all with the plan of his creation.

” First we must create a plan as God made a plan of his creation, then we work that plan as best we can Like God did, to be within all the beauty of that plan”

” There are good plans and there are bad plans, as we stay true to ourselves with the faith in Jesus Christ, then those plans are good and the ones we need to work as best we can”

The Miracles of life will always be there within us

” So he went in and said to them, ” Why this commotion and weeping”? The child is not dead but asleep”

Mk 5:39

It is said that everything happens for a reason? It is just that we lost our way to finding that reason, so we can move forward, better and stronger along this journey through life. We all go through many events throughout this journey, that will alter the way we walk our paths, With the disruption of these events, we then get lost in the reasons, while we also lose the faith in ourselves, as well as the faith in Jesus Christ. This journey will throw many curve balls at us, it will also test us in many ways as well, but when we stay true to who we are, keep the faith in ourselves, as well as Jesus Christ, there will be no curveball, that we can not hit and make it on base safely, on the playing field of this journey through life.

With the last couple of years we all have gone through, may this be a sign from Jesus to us all, showing all of us that, he is here for us all, he will guide us back to the light of the path of righteousness, all we need to do is, keep the faith in ourselves and in him, so we then can walk through the dark clouds of the storm, to get into the bright lights of God, as we all move forward into the peace and serenity, that the path of righteousness holds for us all.

One of the biggest miracles of this journey is, we all take so for granted that each day we wake to a new day. Just like the sun rises to a new day over the horizon, we rise to the light of a new day. such a peaceful picture this is, of the sun rising to shine on a new day, the quietness of the crack of dawn, only to be interrupted by the beautiful sounds of the birds, singing their morning tunes. As everything wakes to the new light, so do we wake, only we take it for granted, simply because we have to get ready for the day within our jobs. Now some may be within their dream job? Do they really exist? Or do we just lie to ourselves to make it seem like a dream? Nonetheless, we still wake so we can earn the living, which helps us walk our paths, as peacefully as we can. Everything happens for a reason, it is on us to find that reason, so we can fix what we need to fix, stay true to who we are, then keep moving forward along our paths, of this journey through life.

The Eagle sits atop the tree and keeps an eye on all that is below. Jesus also watches all of us from high above and at the right side of his father. He sends us the needed signs, just that when we lose the faith in him, we never truly see these signs. Jesus is always watching us, his blood as it warms our souls runs through our hearts with his love, when we stay true to our feelings, we will feel his warmth and love within us, as we then will, share this love with each other. But as we lose all faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, now our hearts turn cold, and we bury our true selves so deep within, that we now become someone for who we truly are not. This is when Satan shows up and tempts us with many temptations, that bring much ugliness, pain, and hurt to us all. There will always be good and evil, only if we stay true to who we are, we will know that good will always win over evil. But when we are someone who we are not, then the dark clouds of the storm will never leave us, as the light of the new day becomes even further from us.

Sometimes as we walk our paths of this journey, things will happen that we can’t explain? These are the miracles that Jesus puts forth in front of us, these are the signs he sends us, so we can, with the faith in him, see the signs, as we keep moving forward along our paths. Miracles do happen, just that through the ugliness of Satan, we never see them as we should. Jesus Christ trusts us in so many ways, we also need to trust him in the same ways, but when those life events come to us, scorn us in the wrong ways, this is when we hide deep within ourselves and portray a fake self to all those around, as we try to minimize the pain and the hurt that will come to us. There is so much to this journey of life, there is so much that will come to us, that we then become lost as we walk our paths. When we become lost, we then trip on the bumps of the path, sometimes these bumps will knock us down, but if we do not get up in the correct way, we then do not walk our paths the same way, as we once did.

In the eyes of Jesus Christ, there really is no right or wrong way to walk this journey, we just need to stay true to who we are, stay true to the faith in ourselves, as well as the faith in Jesus also, so he then can send us those signs for us to see, he can give us those miracles that help guide us to the light of the path of righteousness, so as the bright light of the sun lights up the horizon each and every day, we to can wake up to the bright light of a new day, as we keep moving forward with the warmth of the blood of Jesus flowing through our hearts, his love warming our souls, as we then share that love with each other. May we all truly see and feel the miracles that Jesus puts forth along our paths, so we all can walk through this journey, in the peace and happiness, that Jesus wants for us all.

” The miracles of Jesus Christ are all around and with the true faith we can feel these miracles as we stay true to who we are”

” As the sun wakes up over the horizon and brings the light of a new day, The faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ will wake us up to a new day always”

The Differences are endless

” If the sun makes you free, you shall be free indeed”

John 8:36

The differences throughout this journey of life are endless, and we never stop seeing all the differences around us. From the paths we walk to the beautiful views mother nature provides, everything is different, and yes, we may be equal to each other with our features, but with our uniqueness, we are as different as these two pictures of the sunsets within mother nature.

Some of us may never truly step out within mother nature and hike a mountain, or camp off the grid of society, but that does not mean that they too, do not see all the differences around them, just that they do not see all the differences throughout this journey of life. When God created all that is around us, he did so thinking of everything, which that alone, makes you sit and wonder how he truly did this? God thought of everything, right down to all the differences all around us today. The different kinds of plant life, the different wildlife as well, then you have all the different sunsets each and every day, yes there is only one sun, but each sunset comes in many different ways and colors. Then if you are in a great viewing place for the sunset, and never look away as the sun goes deep into the horizon, you then will be rewarded with different colors at each stage of the sun going down. I have seen this on a beach, on the Island of Martha’s Vineyard, off the coast of Massachusetts, simply stunning is the word I can best describe, and that word really does not describe the true beauty of what I saw.

There are so many differences all around, you really need to escape into the world of the outdoors, get off the grid and away from the bright lights of society, as you become one with mother nature and really feel the pulse of this great planet, that we all walk a path through this journey of life. Unfortunately within this broken society, the differences we see are all of the negative types, as some do not want us to see all the positive differences, these certain few, are why we are surrounded by all the ugliness, as this promotes all their agendas, so they can seem so powerful, that nothing can touch them? I have a simple news flash for you, they are not that powerful, as all we have to do is ignore them and turn the channel, now eventually they will lose enough money, that they will disappear from our existence. Mother nature has been here through thick and thin, throughout the history of Mankind, by all the true beauty she brings to us, you can see why she has always been there for our viewing pleasure.

The sun may be a few million miles away from us, which makes you wonder how it brings so much difference and beauty to us all? What we can really see when we look deeply into what we see is, the sun brings the light of day, which then takes a rest within the night sky. So very true is it when, as the darkness comes to us, there will always be light right around the corner. So yes, the sun comes and teaches us a lesson, as did Jesus when he came and walked his journey here with us, the problem is, we take it so for granted, that we never see the lesson we are being taught, simply because, we are to busy being out of focus, for all the wrong things. That bright thing within the sky, that heats up the day’s sky, brings us so much with each daily journey among us, but none better than the sunsets with all the different colors, as it goes deep within the horizon, right in front of us every day.

The differences throughout this journey vary greatly, with each difference will come much ugliness, as well as great beauty. As the sun brings the light to the day sky, the moon will bring the darkness as well, each comes with plenty of differences, but unless we look at the differences with an open mind, we will never see the true beauty they will bring as well. Just the animal life within each the moon and the sun will come very differently, like for instance, you have the Owls that fill up the night’s sky, but during the day they will sleep, as they can’t see as good during the day, hence why we call the night worker’s, ” night owls”. like why you never see a moose at night, as they wake up at the crack of dawn, to make their way to the local watering hole for a splash.

Everything has its differences, just like everything has its similarities as well. Yes, you can have your similarities, but without looking at the differences, you will never see the big picture, nor will you ever see the true beauty that is around you at every turn. Sometimes as we walk through this journey, we will let ourselves get too wrapped up in the ugliness, that we then will lose our focus on what is truly in front of us. Then as we become out of focus, we will never look deeply into anything around us, let alone look deeply into any horizon, to see any kind of beauty, that sunset will bring for our viewing pleasure.

Yes, we all walk through this journey of life, and yes, this journey is very similar to us as well, it is the path that we chose, that has all the differences for each of us, so when the path becomes full of bumps and twisting turns, it then becomes our responsibility, to then put in the work to flatten the bumps, and straighten the curves as best we can, as we continue moving forward, throughout this journey of life, as free, happy and peaceful as we can. There are many lessons for us to see, there are many differences in those lessons, but unless we look deeply into the differences, we will never see the lessons, let alone, see any true beauty that this journey will bring to us all.

” The differences may be endless throughout this journey, but so is the true beauty at every turn”

” The bumps and the twisting turns may bring real pain and hurt, but they should never stop us from moving forward and truly seeing all the true beauty”

Separation is okay, but division brings great pain

” He himself is our peace, who…has broken down the middle wall of separation”

Ephesians 2:14

Some time ago, a University Professor was quoted as saying, ” there are two things that will never be solved, the problems of race and war”. The biggest reason for this is, both racism and war have their origin in the pride and covetousness of the human heart. Until the heart then changes, we will forever fall back into the darkness of destructive sin. We all have sinned at some point in our lives and there is nobody that has not sinned throughout this journey of life. When Jesus came and walked his journey here with us, he taught us how to wipe clean the sins, so we can move forward in peace, then through the peace, our hearts can feel the warmth of not only the blood of Christ but feel the warmth of the love, pride and the covetousness, but being so far removed from the time of Jesus Christ, we the people have turned our hearts cold toward one another, which brings forward the racism of all people, with the threat of war hanging over our heads at every turn along our paths.

There is a time and place for everything we do on our paths, sometimes we need to step back, access the situation, so we can move forward even better than we were, but for the reason of power, control, and greed, we the people will never take the time to step back, cause we want nothing more than to get totally ahead of one another. We the people have this crazy notion that, for us to be better than each other, we first need to attack one another, now that was the war part, the racism part is, no matter who you are, no matter the color of your skin, no matter what religion you are, etc… You will always be different than me, so, therefore, you must be divided from me and separated from the path that I walk. We the people are our own worst enemies, and until we come to the truth on that until the heart within us changes from cold to warm, then all the chaos, ugliness, hatred, and corruption all around us, will never end, meaning we will never, in the eyes of Jesus Christ, be within the peace of this journey through life.

The tree in this picture was split from the power of lightning, yes this was a bit too close for comfort, but, this was a sign not just to me, but for all those within this area, that there is nothing that can be ended in the eyes of God, with the way we all are walking this journey, this journey as well can end quicker than we may think. God is not happy with the way we are not just walking our paths, but the way we treat each other along this journey. Everbody becomes so sad from all the destruction from the natural disasters like the tornados, the hurricanes, the fires, etc…as this is a sign from God that, the time is now for us all to change, let our hearts be filled with warmth, and get away from the coldness that comes from Satan. The loud Boom that the lightning made as it split this tree, yes it was very loud, but it is a Boom that I never want to hear again, as I saw first hand the power of lightning.

Our hearts have become so cold toward one another, we really do not know one another anymore, we attack each other as we have never attacked before, we think nothing but to belittle someone, just to make ourselves seem better and more powerful, then some want to come out and blame the guns for this? Really!!! It is not the gun that pulls its own trigger, it is we the people that actually pull the trigger, or better yet, take better control of the ” Mentally Deranged”, and the problem of all the shootings go away, and still, take care of all the Illegal guns that are either being sold on the black market or being made with the technology of a 3-D printer, now you shall see the shootings be reduced greatly. In order for a Gang member to be a part of the Gang, they have to do some inhumane things, which one thing are, the killing of another person in cold blood, this is what needs to change, as well as the hearts of us all, so we all can further walk in the peace of Jesus Christ, throughout this journey of life.

There are some Leaders of other countries out there, that will do anything they can to achieve all the power of everything within this world, The issue then lies on all of us, the people of this world, allowing them to achieve their goals, simply by attacking one another and being divided from one another. Racism brings great division, as war will come from the division, as we show weakness instead of strength. Jesus Christ showed zero Racism, as he was there for all, no matter who you were if you needed healing, Jesus didn’t look at your color of skin, or what religion you were then walk away, he brought you whatever you needed so you could heal from your pain, Jesus showed us how to love one another all the time throughout this journey, the hatred is on us the people and the way we treat each other at every turn. This world is so full of sorrow, that none of us want to take that first step to end it, so we then follow as not to disrupt, or be singled out. Do some think they have all the answers? We all think that we are better and smarter than each other, but no one will reach out to lend a helping hand to another. We all have our opinions as well, but you know what? We all have a backside of the anatomy as well, In order to come together in unity, we need first to change our hearts, let the blood of Jesus flow freely through it, so we then can warm it again, so the cold and all the ugliness go away. It is true that there is strength in unity, but until we get away from the weakness of division, we will never find that out. When we come together in unity, there are no leaders that will succeed in their goal of having all the power within the world, as they truly find out that, they can not control us anymore, with we the people taking back the control, while showing our love of ourselves with each other, will not only have us get away from the racism, it will break down the walls of the divide, which will bring back the peace and love of Jesus Christ, so we all can truly unite and walk this journey as Jesus showed us, while he walked it here with us.

The signs of God are all around us, we just need to acknowledge them, so we can see them, to change what we need to change, as we truly move forward along this journey of life. The lightning splitting this tree, truly shows that God has the power to take away, even as he created it. Everything happens for a reason, but unless we find out that reason, we will never know the why? All the issues we see all around us, are totally on all of us, the people of this society, which we the people through real change, can fix all the issues, as we all heal moving forward. Just as Mother Nature changes all the landscape around us, we to can change the environment around us, with the keyword being, “can”. We just have to want to do it, not just for ourselves, but do it for each other, and the way we do this is, to come together in unity and totally get away from the word of, ” Racism”. The more we keep throwing around this word, the more it becomes the issue, we need to bury this word once and for all, then we can move forward together in harmony, as we truly change what is around us and what is within us, so our hearts will truly feel the warmth of the blood of Jesus Christ. What we are doing now is not of who we truly are, when we look in the mirror and truly see who we are, then we can move forward, in the peace and love of Jesus Christ, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” This journey we walk we will be separated on our paths as they are different, but we unite through the journey, as the journey is the same for us all”

” Until the attacking of one another stops, then the division will always be there, with the threat of war hanging over our heads”

Changed for Life

” We…are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory”

Corinthians 3:18

We all want that nice beach house on the ocean, but through change and erosion, you can see that this beach is one more storm away, from having waves crash into the beach house, as people sit and watch television in the living room. Erosion is a constant thing as we walk our paths through this journey, we may not see this erosion, simply because we are too busy out there living our lives. We all in this society have become so engulfed, with trying to be the one to bring the next big thing, that we all have lost focus on what is truly going on around us. We all want so much for that five minutes of fame, we don’t focus on who we truly are anymore, which leads us into the world of, ” I am better than you”.

We are all working so hard to buy all the material things and showing them off to all those around, that when we buy these things, we don’t really look too deep into things like erosion and the effects it will have in the future. These material things are just that and we can’t take them with us when this journey ends. So, begs the question? Then what really do these material things hold for us? I can see the short answer of having the beach house, so one can walk the beach whenever they wish, but when erosion comes into play and takes away that beach, now it becomes very hard to walk the beach, as now you need not be afraid of the ocean and become a very good swimmer, which most are not.

Erosion is a huge part of this journey, it will affect every aspect of the land around us, whether at the beach, or maybe a cabin in the woods, or even within all the houses being developed around us. A lot of these houses and as the developers don’t want us to know, as they will never sell a home? Are being built on either swampland or old landfills that have been filled in. They may think they are filling in a hole in the ground to develop some homes, but nobody thinks of the erosion that comes to us, from this planet that we walk our paths on. Climate change, global warming, are all terms that some makeup to make a profit, but these terms have always been around through the word ” Erosion”, as mother nature changes this planet, with the help of erosion.

Some may think they can change the beach with the help of some heavy equipment? What they never admit to is, you simply can not fight mother nature, nor the fury of the ocean during a raging storm. Erosion has been around since the beginning of time, then lies the problem of we the people, especially those within the walls of Washington DC, as all they want is to put more money in their pockets, leaving the ones struggling through the erosion, standing there holding the bag, as now their beautiful beach home is in jeopardy, from the power of erosion and being dismantled before their eyes.

You build a nice little cabin in the woods, with beautiful mountains all around you. As you build this cabin, all you are thinking about is, all the peace and serenity you will have away from this crazy society. Well, the one important thing that slips our mind as we build is, the exact location of the cabin, while we look up at the mountains, to determine what would erosion do, as it eats away from the mountain? Where will those boulders go as the erosion eats away at the mountain? Will this cabin slip away into the river below while the erosion eats all the tundra beneath it? These are all very good questions, but these are questions we overlook, simply because we want so bad of these things, we then look away from them, thinking…Oh!!! This will never happen to me? Yes, there may be that chance that it will never happen, but!!! We must always keep in mind the chances, so we can be better at the decisions we make, while the changes of erosion are happening all around us.

Everything that happens as we walk our paths of this journey, happens for a reason, but we never get into the reasons, because we fear more of the negative reasons, so we look away from them, then later when things start going south…we then ask ourselves why? When things around us happen, we then need to find out why did this happen, so we can truly understand better, as we then try to keep moving forward along our paths. Because we do not want to know the reasons why something happened, will have us regress and move backward, which then has us, lose faith in not just everything around us, but lose the truth of everything around us, which then leads us into the self-destruction of everything we do.

Erosion has and will always happen right before our eyes, we need to look at this as, how can I better understand this moving forward, instead of looking at it as a way to profit from it, which then has us robbing one another, of all our hard-earned work, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Everything erodes over time, even we ourselves erode over time, remember those things you once did when you were younger? Well here you are later in life and now you can not do what you once did. Erosion is a huge part of this journey through life, it is time we start looking at it, to truly understand it, so we all can be better as we walk our paths through this journey, to be true of who we are, and live our lives in the peace and happiness, that Jesus Christ showed us, while he walked this journey here with us.

” Erosion has been in this journey since the beginning of time, but we still do not truly want to know and understand anything about it”

” People, land, beaches, mountains, there is nothing that erosion will not affect, we must understand it, before the erosion takes everything away”

” Here we spend our time, and what we see”

” What we think about matter”

Psalm 119:37

Corinthians 10:5

It is the many smaller journeys, within this bigger journey called Life, that make us up to be who we are? The Perspectives, the visions, the way we take actions from what we see, to inmplement them in our own way, this not only forms who we become, but what we tend to forget is, it forms many others around us, whether in a negative way, or a positive way.

We are all within this broken society today simply because, we in one way shape or form, have failed each other with our own actions. We have lost sight of one of the biggest conmandments that Moses, brought forth to each of us, from our Father, and the creator of all the beauty around us, ” Love Thy Neighbor”. We do not even know our neighbors anymore, let alone a simple hello in passing, we all move around like we are the creator’s? Like we own everything around us, and are entitled to everything around us? Yes God created all this for us to enjoy, but to enjoy with each other in harmony, without trying to attack and kill each other. Until the day comes that we all get back to who we truly are, we may never get back to a good and healthy society, it all starts with the actions of each one of us, as we move forward within our own journeys, of this journey thru life.

This journey through life has much beauty for us all to see, but when we keep the current actions we are taking, all this beauty will turn to ugliness all around us. Now I get the fact that each society throughout this journey will grow from one to another, but when they do grow and when they are taught the wrong things, from the wrong actions, this is where we have gone so wrong. Plus the fact that we of this society are so far removed from the time when, Jesus Christ came to us and walked this journey with us, has led us away from the house of God, and so far away that, there are some who just do not believe, or have formed their own Idealologies about the son of man. Well!!! Unlike the so-called media of today, I have a real news-flash for you, without the belief in Jesus Christ, you can not have any faith, which then leads to no hope.

Faith in anything is key to us walking our paths confidently, to be better and stronger. With faith in our selves, we then can keep moving forward, without stepping backwards into the unknown, and with that faith, we than can have great hope, that helps us to not just be who we are, but succeed in everything we set out to do, as we walk our paths of this journey. Now some in this society who have no faith in anything, will try to bring their inabilities to the rest of us? Then say that, you need to do as I say, because it is the only way? Some and because of their inabilities, will try to wreak all the power over us, so they can seem ( only to themselves), as the most powerful over all others. Then you have the ones that, just simply go with the flow, as to not bring any unwanted pain and hurt, let alone anything that takes away their comfort. People today fear so much of all ugliness and hatred out there, that they forget how to actually take a stand to it, how to look the fear in the eyes, so they can end that fear around them, so they keep to the status Quo, cause they fear more of the actions that may come to them.

We need to change our actions we take toward each other, we attack each other at every turn, this is not what Jesus taught us within his journey here, some will be Politically correct to your face, then stab you in the back when you turn from them? These actions only promote more ugliness and hatred, we need to get back to ” Love Thy Neighbor”, so we then can get back to, our true feelings and emotions, show more love and empathy of each other, then we can actually take the right steps moving forward, of how to make not only this society better and stronger, but make ourselves better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

With each little journey within this bigger journey, there is so much beauty around us, there is so much to truly see of what God created for us, the only way to truly see it is, we need to step out of our comfort zones, step out of our in actions, and get back to our true actions, get back to who we truly are, get back into the house of God, so we can truly feel the blood of Jesus Christ warm our hearts and flow freely within our bodies. When the blood of Jesus flows within us, we then will have the empathy of one another, so we than can get away from the ugliness and hatred, as we move forward within the proper changes, for us all to be better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, within the peace and joy, that Jesus showed us as he walked this journey with us.

We all have our own likes and dislikes, and the only way for us to find out what they are, is to explore everything around us, so we can find out just what those likes and dislikes really are. There are so many things to chat about in order to determine what you like or dislike? The only one that can determine this, is you yourself. others may support you, or they may guide you, but ultimately, it is you, who truly knows what you like or dislike, as others can only speculate, or simply just give you ideas.

Yes we all walk this big journey called life, but within this journey are so many paths to choose from, we can become so overwhelmed, that quite frequently we will choose the wrong path, and as we keep choosing many paths, can and will become so lost within this big journey, that we then stop walking and start wandering, with no true direction of where we are going? It is okay to explore other paths, as this is the way we find what is the true path for us, not everybody will walk the same path, as we all have very different likes and dislikes. Yes we need to explore each path to find out if it is the right path, but when we get to deep into the path and lose sight of how to get back to the crossroad that turned us down this path, now we become lost along this journey, as now the clouds of our judgments have clouded what is in front of us.

This journey through life will also throw us curve balls, it will also have these life events that come to us. These events are very different to each of us, they are also either very hard to deal with or very miniscule and easy to deal with, yes they can control us as well, and when we let them control us, now we become someone for who we truly are not. These life events are part of life and yes they can come to us by another, who want nothing but to control us moving forward. So as you become lost within this journey, the only way to truly find your way back, is to keep exploring other paths, and stop hiding within yourself, for this does nothing but keep you wandering, without truly walking a path of this journey through life.

Everybody has their own way of dealing with the ups and downs this journey brings to us, some may find different ways to explore and clean the cobwebs that life will bring to us, for me, I love the outdoors and exploring all it has, plus the getting away from the rat race for even a short time, helps with the healing of the mind, body and soul. Mother Nature has her way of giving you a different outlook of what is around you. It is when you do not explore what life has out there, now you continue down a path, that is not really for you, and you then become bitter and unhappy, as you walk through this journey. The more bitter you become, the more hatred you develop, as you can clearly see all the hatred within this society we all walk our paths within.

Hiking, off grid camping, kayaking, these are great outlets to totally relax and clear the cobwebs, now true some may not like these, but there are so many more outlets, you just have to explore and find the right outlet for you. These outlets will help us refocus, determine things we have forgotten about, so we can get to truly of who we are, then get back to walking with confidence, along the path of this journey through life. Now some may not want us to remember any history, but it is the history we need to remember, so we don’t repeat it moving forward, plus it is the history, that helps us glance back and fix what we need to fix, as we move forward better and stronger, while we escape within Mother Nature and heal ourselves, not too mention, look at all the true beauty all around you.

Look out into the horizon, it may seem endless at first glance, but as we grow and learn correctly along this journey, we find many horizons for us to explore. Whether your looking at a horizon from the top of a mountain, as you paddle a kayak along the river, or maybe sit along the sandy shoreline and staring into the ocean, the place we look into the horizon may be different, as each path we walk, but the horizon is all the same, just like this journey through life we all walk together. There are so many similarities all around us, but if we do not truly see them, then all will always be different, no matter how we look at them. When your path is full of bumps that will bruise you and leave a scar, it becomes all about how you get up from the fall, dust yourself off, heal the bruises correctly, so you than can move forward better then you were. Some may get right back up like nothing happened, while others either never get up, or take a very long time to get up, it is not about the time it takes you to get up, it is about how you get up from the fall, how you stay true to who you are, without hiding within yourself, and never really reaching your true potential.

There are so many little journeys within the even bigger journey we all walk, the key, is for us all to explore and find the right one that best fits us, then excel within that journey, so we can be truly of who we are, so when we walk our path we choose, we actually do the work of clearing that path of the obstructions, so we can move forward better and stronger, within the peace and happiness we all so need and deserve, as we walk through this journey of life.

” This journey comes with many ups and downs that will knock you down and bruise you, which then makes it of how you pick yourself up and heal from the bruises of life”

” Just as you look deeply into the Abyss, look deeply into the horizon and ask yourself, of just how to get to that point and explore all that comes before you”

” You are witnesses of these things”

LK 24:48

We of this society within this Political correct world, simply let other’s take control of who we truly are? Why? Because we let our perception of what we see cloud our judgments, as we lose the direction of where we are going along our paths of this journey. Perception is one of those things that we all will do differently, you can take one thing and have ten people look at it, and the result is, ten different perceptions of that one thing. Multiply that by each Individual on this planet… Well you get the picture? Now you add in the source of where the information comes from, example like the far left liberal media, and now you have perception on steroids’, with drama, agendas, and chaos all around us.

We all will be a witness of many things, but one thing some may not witness because they take it for granted is, stepping outside and seeing the true beauty of mother nature. Mother Nature will always be there to show us her beauty, but instead of focusing on her fury that the media will surround us with, we will never see past that, in order to truly look at her shine in her finest moments. Most will never go off grid camping, pitch a tent to make your bed within, so you can lay down and truly feel the heartbeat of this planet, they would rather stay in a hotel, order room service, and look out the window, then say they saw mother natures beauty? Most will see this waterfall, but only a few will truly look at this waterfall and ask questions like, how did this waterfall get here? This waterfall was formed by a Glacier that happened way before any of us were alive. The Glacier formed the rocks, as the mountain stream flowed so fluently over the rocks and into a pool of water below. Most will just see it as water that flows over a cliff of rock, as few of us truly look at it in awe! Of the true beauty that mother nature holds for us all.

Today within this crazy society, when we say witness? We immediately think of, being a witness of a crime that has been committed? We forget or take advantage of the fact, we all have eyes to see with, for which now we are all witnesses of everything around us, whether good or bad. If a dog runs in circles now we are the witness of watching that dog run in circles, when the sun moves from one side of the sky to the other, now we are witnessing the movement of both the sun and the earth in harmony. You see an Eagle fly through the sky high above you, now you have just witnessed that Eagle in flight. We are all witnesses everyday as we walk our paths through this journey, but the problem is, we take so for granted of everything, that we don’t truly look at what we are seeing.

Even if you only see the same things day to day as you commute to your daily 9 to 5’s, you are still a witness of what you are seeing on a daily basis, just that we don’t look at it in that way? There is so much beauty right there in front of us everyday, but the sad part is, we do not allow ourselves to truly see what we are looking at, we may glance at something, but we never truly look, because we so fear this politically correct world we are in today. A lot of the problem is not we ourselves, it is all the agendas and the drama, that is forced down our throats by all the media types, and our so called leader’s around us, they will only tell us what they want us to know, so they can keep to their agendas, which happens to be, the power, the greed, and the control of every one of us throughout this society.

This journey of life does not have to be this way, but it will never change if we ourselves do not change. Yes change can be difficult and hard, but when change comes for the better, then it can be even more beautiful, then mother nature herself. Change will never come if we keep to the status Quo, which makes it even more important for us all to step outside our comfort zones, and let the change come, so we all can accept it, to move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Change, is all around us everyday, just like mother natures beauty is all around us. They both can bring us fury as well as bring us beauty, but like the world of political correction, we fear greatly all the change, as we let it cloud our judgments and never truly see the beauty right in front of us. Unless we can all truly be a witness of what we are seeing, we may never look at any beauty around us, and truly see how beautiful it really is? This journey of life really is not that hard, but we ourselves make it hard with our actions, and how we perceive everything around us. May the peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you all, as we all walk our paths through this peace, throughout this journey of life.

” Do you truly see what you are looking at? Or do you perceive what you see without truly looking at what you see”

” Political correction is making us all weak, we need to truly see it for what it is, so we can look deeper into all the true beauty around us”

” The journey to the top of the mountain, is a strenuous one, much like reaching the pinnacle of your career, within the world of sports”

*** BowlingChef***

Super Bowl Sunday, we all witnessed an Individual setting the bar so high, at the position he play’s, that we may never in our lifetimes, see this done again. I am not saying it will never be duplicated, but this kind of stuff is a once in a lifetime kind of stuff. Tom Brady is the Quarter Back, and he is greatness personified. Tom was drafted by the New England Patriots in the 6th round, at pick number 199? So to say this was predicted is not even in the mention, nobody could of predicted this, not even Tom himself. Tom worked very hard everyday to perfect his craft, not just in the Pro’s, but even as a young child, now it is true that, he might of been a gifted Athlete, seeing he was also drafted in baseball as well, but this gift just doesn’t happen, as the Individual needs to put the work in, to perfect the craft he seeks. We all, if we put in the work, can achieve some success in whatever we want, maybe not quite like Tom, but we also can be successful at whatever we want.

When Tom was here in New England, we all know about his work ethnic, he was first in the building in the morning, and last to leave in the evening, he studied multiple tapes and video, time in the gym, on the practice field, many reps at everything it took, to make him perfect his craft. Tom’s greatness did not happen overnight, it took a lot of years, starting from a very young age. This wasn’t all him, as when he was young, he needed great support from his family, especially from his Mom and Dad, They could of steered him in a different direction, but instead, they guided him to follow his passion, and we all know just how much passion, Tom has for the sport of football.

Passion is deep within us all, but if we do not release it, we will never know our true potential. We all work our current 9 to 5’s, but how many of us have a true passion for what we do? Exactly!!! not many and Tom Brady is one that does. Not having passion for what we do, explains all the bitterness out there, the jealousy of each other, which then is followed by the hate of each other. You seen all the big smiles and then followed by big joy after the game by the Buccaneer’s, this was from them achieving their passion and becoming the winner of the Super Bowl, as the NFL’s best team. Then you saw sorrow, sadness, bitterness, some forgetting about the passion and letting their emotions, take them to a very ugly place, just because they didn’t win the Super Bowl, sports can be very emotional on both sides, whether happy or sad, this is what the competitive nature of each player, will bring to each other.

Being competitive is what gives each player, the drive to bring out the passion of their craft, this is how great players are made, and how they achieve the greatness within their sport. The ones who have no drive, or have no competitive spirit, these are the ones who do not last in the sport they play, guys like Tom Brady, Zedna Chara, Patrice Bergeron to name a few, totally have the drive and competitive spirit, not to mention, the passion of the game they play. You can not teach this passion, it is totally up to the player to let the passion, flow throughout their blood. The hard work, the drive, the enjoyment of what you do, the competition, are all the factors, of what it takes to release the passion throughout your veins, as it turns to the blood and who you become moving forward.

Sometimes the mountain top may seem to high, or maybe too difficult and you just walk away from attempting it, but if you do not attempt it, if you do not find the competition in it, if you can not find the passion to take that first step, now you will never see the true beauty that the summit holds for you, you will never let any passion, flow through your veins, as it turns into the blood that drives you everyday. Tom Brady has become more then just a 7 time Super Bowl Champion, more than just an Individual on a field playing a game, more than a person that works very hard to succeed at his craft, Tom has become an Icon to not just all of us, but an Icon for the many children looking up to him and to try to be like him, and even more, he has become an inspiration to us all, from this point on, as he as well as all of us, move forward, on our paths, throughout this journey of life.

” The journey to the top is never easy, but with hard work and passion, anything will seem easy over time”

” Passion is deep within us all and when we unleash it, the sky is the limit as to what we can achieve”

Words hurt with real pain, the right words can heal us all

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Words may come out of our mouths and we may not see these words, but as they come out into the air, they are so powerful, that they can bring great pain to those around you. Yes these spoken words can hurt greatly, but what is even worse is, whomever the mouth is that the words come out of, can also bring pain and hurt, which makes the pain go deeper within us. We the people have total control of what words come from our mouths, but we in this society, just spit out whatever the word may be, without thinking through the ramification of the words we speak. Sometimes…and I get it, we let our passion and emotions get in the way of the words we speak, which then leads to the wrong words coming from our mouths, but if we all just take a step back sometimes before we speak, oh!!! What a great world we would live within.

The paths we walk within this journey of life are so different from one another, some may never of been groomed, some may be cleared, but still just dirt, then there are ones fully paved and smooth, with no bumps in our way, These paths that have been cleared for us, and unless we have been taught correctly, won’t prepare us for the bumps that will knock us down, they won’t prepare us for misguided words that will bring us great pain, they will only prepare us to be fake, not just to each other, but even worse, be fake to ourselves, which then turns us into someone for who we truly are not.

Those who speak without thinking through the ramifications of their words, these are the ones who have been hurt deeply by the spoken words, just that they hide deep within, so others will never see their pain. They care nothing for what they say, simply because these words have turned their hearts very cold, their hearts are so cold, they have buried the love of Jesus Christ deep within, so the heart will never warm up and heal. This society is so wrong, as it forces us to never admit to our weaknesses, it is this weakness that help us truly heal moving forward, but if we do not except it, then we will never heal, and keep hurting those around us, until there is no one around to hurt anymore, then as this happens, oh!!! This planet will become so cold and lonely, without a soul around.

This society over the last three or four decades, has been going in the wrong direction. The way we have been taught within all the broken homes, the way we have been taught within the schools, has led us totally into where we are today. The ugliness and the hatred have to be learned from somewhere, as they are not within us, like the love of Jesus Christ, Through all this ugliness and hatred, we have no bounds, we care nothing for anybody around us, as we then continue to spit ugly words of hate from our mouths, then the so called leaders feed us words that are not true, just so we will vote for them, and they continue their propaganda, as they get rich and we get poorer. It is all about the words we spit from our mouths, some will say their words are right, others say theirs is correct? All I know is, as long as we all keep spewing shit from our mouths, this society will never heal properly throughout this journey.

Go deep within any city in this country, I mean really go deep within the city, don’t stay within the protected zones where the capitols are, go deep into the hoods, really listen to the words being spewed, 99% are all of hate and ugliness. Now I get some have a choice to be there, but most have no choice to go anywhere else, a lot of the families there are broken, their foundations in dire need to be fixed, violence at every turn, with the innocent taking the hit for no reason. Where are those we vote for, who say they will clean up the streets? Oh!!! That’s right, they are too busy lining their pockets and getting rich on our dime. True there are some that pull themselves out of the hoods, or even worse, out of the gutter of life, but unfortunately there are far too many still there and hurting deeply, as others just keep walking by, like they don’t even exist.

We all live in a society that is broken and in need to be fixed moving forward. The fix will take us all working together in unity, unlike those so called leaders saying with their words, they will bring unity, but then turn the other cheek and forget what words they have said. This is a society of many, but when the many never unite together, then the paths we walk throughout this journey, will forever bring us all great pain, until we all think of the ramifications of our words, before we let the words spew into the air, in front of us.

” When we write on paper we see the words, but the words we speak we will never see”

” Words bring great pain, but words can also heal moving forward”

” When you have one word with multiple meanings, now you have a word that can bring great pain”
