The Portrait of Mother Nature

Mother nature has so many qualities, her beauty is second to none. Every season brings it’s own flair to each year, but first you need to get out and explore all her true beauty with each step along the journey. The Fall, some may say it’s too cold? But it is the cold that has all the colors of the leaves popping, as we look in awe! While some take to the roads to see all the colors of the leaves changing, in order to see the true colors of the Fall, you need to exit the vehicle, step onto the trail and go explore deep within the woods of Mother Nature. Every season has its own beauty that it brings to us, but for me, the Fall is the most beautiful and comfortable, in order to roam within Mother Nature.

The Winter is the coldest of the seasons and like all the other seasons, it to, brings a beauty of its own, so we can share as we truly see what the beauty brings to us all. That white blanket that covers the Earth, to rejuvinate the landscape for the Spring thaw. When you go walking a trail in the Winter, listen to the crunch of the snow beneath your feet, as a fresh snow blankets the earth from a new storm, that quiet Eery feeling of calm, that fills the air around you. There is nothing like that quiet calm from a fresh snow, which adds even more, to the true beauty of what mother nature brings to us all.

To most, the best is the thaw of Spring and the meaning that, warmer temps are coming, but when you look deeply into the season of Spring, you will clearly see that this season is all about rebirth, as Fall is about hibenating and being dorment through the cold months. When Spring is here, then all the flowers and the leaves come back fresh, as the air turns warmer, as we wake up from our hibenating sleep. Now with the warmer months on the horizon, most will think of vacation, as to them its all about the beach and the surf? But this journey through life holds alot more, than just walking a sandy beach, and listening to the surf slam that sandy beach. Spring has sprung, bringing back once again, all the true beauty of mother nature for us all to enjoy. You will see the limbs of the trees with many buds, that will bring the fresh leaves and fill the trees with new life. The flowers fragerance will brighten up the air all around us, as they come back into bloom for another season. Yes everything will be reborn within the months of Spring, even we as well will be reborn, but only if we want to change and change for the better, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Then there is the season of Summer, this season will bring the heat, yes it will literally heat up the Earth, to which those sandy beaches you like to walk, will become like walking on fire and burn your feet with each step. As the Winter months will freeze the waters for us to go skating on, the Summer will heat up that same water, as now we go swimming, to get relief, from the heat of the Summer months. It is true that all the plant life that becomes reborn in the Spring, can dry up and die, with the scorching heat that Summer brings. The pitchure of this lake was taken in the late summer months, with Fall lurking around the corner. It was late in the day with the sun going down for its nights rest, as the darkness of night to become upon all. The calm of the night sky is coming near, as now the night creatures start to awake, and the days creatures get some rest, for the next days adventures. Time to light the campfire and get lost within the therepy of the hot coals and listen to all the sounds from the night sky. We have become so used to the city lights, that most forget what it is like, within the night sky of mother nature. There is so much to and within the beauty of mother nature, but to actually experience it, you first have to step out of your comfort zone, and step into what mother nature has in store for you.

What is lurking around the corner of mother nature? The only way to find out, is to actually take that step around the corner and truly see, what mother nature has in store for you. Yes you have to be prepared for what may be around the corner, but when you are prepared, there is no better beauty to step into. From the colors of Fall, to the white winter blanket that Winter brings to us all, then the rebirth that takes place in the Spring, giving us back all the beauty that left us in the Fall, then the heat of the Summer as we take our vacations and rejuvinate ourselves from the daily grind. Each season brings many beautiful things to us all, but when we are bitter, we never truly see what the beauty is, of any season and as there are four seasons within a year, there is much beauty to experience, as we get back to truly of who we are, without being bitter, of anything or anyone. This journey will bring many things to us all, as we walk our paths we chose, so if we do not enjoy all the beauty within all the seasons, then before we know it, this journey will come to an end, with alot of us leaving this journey with many regrets, that now we can not get back, because now the journey has stopped, and what lurks on the other side of the journey, we will never know, til we get to that side, which I think it is what most fear the most.

” The beauty of mother nature is all around us, its time to truly see that beauty and stop with all the bitterness”

” There are four beautiful seasons within each year of our journey, you cant just see one without getting through another”

” There is so much lurking within this journey of life, but within all the bitterness you will never be prepared for what lurks around each corner”

The Faith gives us hope, to step away from temptation when tempted

” Faith is the substance of things hoped for”

Hebrews 11:1

” The enemy will attempt to make it complicated but it is actually very simple, Satan is incapable of telling the truth” ( John 8:44) and God is unable to lie ( Titus 1:2)”

Within this society we all walk, we also walk through this journey of life. Very much like Jesus came to us as a baby, to grow an walk this journey as well, we also have grown from a baby into this society, to walk our path of this journey. This journey comes with many paths, just you need to find that one path that is best for you? What matters most is, the amount of pain you bring to yourself and those around you. There is an old saying, ” never step on another man’s shine”, quite frankly, if you put your faith in the right places, you need not to step on anyones shine, as you will find the hope, to have the strength, to be better with each step through this journey.

True this society can be so overwhelming and daunting, there are so many as well as so many groups, that will do anything they can to get you to follow them, whether they stretch the truth, or not say exactly what is needed, they are quite simply lieing just so they can lead you away from real truth, which is totally where we then will become surrounded within so much chaos, that now we make the wrong decision at the crossroads of our paths, and end up going into the wrong direction without even knowing it. Once we get caught up into the lie, we then keep the lie going with more lies, because we fear more of, admitting that we have become engulfed within this fake world we are now within.

Jesus was tempted many times by Satan, he was offered great things if he came into the darkness, but Jesus saw right through him, stayed true to himself as well as his Father, so he could stay focused along the path he chose, to help all of us and teach us many things, including of how to reach the path of righteousness, with as little pain as possible, to ourselves and all those around us. This journey may not be perfect, nor are we even close to being perfect either, this is a fact of life, but within this society and all the lies being thrown around, there are some who think they are perfect, and want the rest of us to follow them and become their pawns on this board of chess called life. With all the temptations that will come to us along this journey, when we stay true to who we are, keep complete faith in Jesus Christ, as well as ourselves, then we like Jesus, will see through all of Satan’s temptations, so we can keep walking toward the hope, as the light of salvation brightens our paths for all eternity.

We all start this journey as a baby, very much like Jesus. We needed guidence and led for the first few years, then as we become older, now we are suppose to take the reigns and trust in the guidence to keep moving forward throughout this journey. But, like in todays society, when there is either no guidence, or miss guidence, now you get lost at the crossroads of the path you chose and take the wrong path, which leads you in the wrong direction, then before you know it, you have become engulfed in all the ugliness and chaos, that the world of lies has created. Plus, if another harms you in ways that bring great pain, you then try to bury the pain and try to keep moving forward, even as the shame of that harm buries your true feelings and emotions deep within. None of us are perfect within this world, but when we take action on others, that bring them great harm, this only brings us all deeper within this world of, ugliness and chaos, then takes us further away from the light of salvation and everything that Jesus Christ taught us, as he came to us and walked this journey with us.

The world of lies and being fake, does nothing but make stronger the hold of denial and shame on us, the shame will have us fear everything, as the denial keeps the lies going, then further we fall into the world of darkness, that Satan has transposed upon us and as we become further away, from the light of salvation, that Jesus showed us along his journey here with us. There is right as well as wrong, which is also the same as good versus evil, just that sometimes within this world we do not always get the right guidence, which then leads us into temptaion and the world of darkness, ugliness and chaos. This journey will throw us many curve balls, but if we have been misguided, or misled, we will never be able to hit any ball, whether it’s straight or a curve, then you add in others who bring great harm to another, you won’t even see the ball coming, which now you will suffer great pain, as the ball hits you right in the face. We will never see the love and compassion that Jesus taught us along his journey here with us, as long as we are within the darkness of Satan. The darkness of Satan is not what is within us, what is truly within us is, the love and compassion of Jesus Christ, only now, we have buried it so deep within, so we can try to protect ourselves from further harm, as now we only aknowledge the darkness, keeping the light of salvation turned off and deep within us.

Knowing the difference between the truth and a lie, is something that in todays world, we are lost within. This should be a red flag in front of us all, telling us that, we need to get back to who we are, get back to truly feeling the love and compassion of Jesus Christ, that is within us all. if we continue on the path we currently are on, forget about the red flag, as like a hurricane can destroy a town, a world without the love and compassion of Jesus Christ within us, will destroy everything around us, even we ourselves. We can get through the darkness together as Jesus showed us, so we than can see the light of salvation on the other side, true the pain from the harm that may come to us, will bring great hurt, but when we stay true to who we are, truly feel the love of Jesus within us and his blood pass through our hearts, that is when the true guidence comes to us, as we will step through the darkness into the light of salvation, which then brings us into the world of peace and joy, like Jesus taught us along his path, through this journey of life, that we to will walk together, from beginning to end.

None of us are exempt from this darkness coming to us, not even Jesus as he showed us just how to handle it, it is when we handle it as jesus did, that this journey will be on the side of good, but when we let the temptation come to us, now we have gone into the darkness and the side of evil along this journey. Because we have let ourselves become lost within the temptation, now we are shamed into following further into the darkness and the world of evil, as now we become engulfed in all the chaos and the ugliness. This does not mean we are trapped and will be within the darkness forever, so if we do find our true selves, get back to truly being of who we are, feeling the blood of Jesus warm our hearts, we then get back to the light of salvation and away from the darkness, with all its lies, the denial and the shame. It is never too late and Jesus will always be there to guide us, with his faith and love, bringing us to the hope, As much as some want us to believe that evil will conquor? It is tooi bad they can’t see clearly within the darkness, simply because the good will always beat evil, especially when you let the blood of Jesus warm your heart and you bring his love within, to each other, so now we all can feel the true love of Jesus, which will keep away the evil of, the lies, the denial and the shame. So now we all can be within the light, with all the peace and joy at every turn, throughout this journey of life.

” Without the faith there will be no hope, as the darkness becomes overwhelming with no sign of any light”

” Not even a simple white lie is okay, as now you will become engulfed in keeping that lie going with even more lies, which will keep you from the truth and away from who you truly are”

” A true guide with real actions will bring you into the light, anything else will just darken the darkness with its lies, ugliness and the chaos”

For Whom, do you think I am?

” He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief”

Isaiah 56:3

” I will give them a new heart and a new mind”

Ezekiel 11:19

” Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up the cross, and follow me”

Mk 8:34b

For Whom do you think I am? This is a direct question, that Jesus looked into the eyes of his Disciples and asked, This is when it got really personal for each of the Disciples, as to the true direction in which to go, as they walked their paths of this journey through life. To truly follow Jesus Christ, you just don’t get behind him and follow his tracks, you need to completly change who you are, change everything that you have learned to this point, because what you have learned from this broken society, and what Jesus Christ is all about, is like the night compared to the day, so when you truly trust in Jesus Christ, you than can do anything for which you set out to do.

Denial is a very powerful force deep within, this force will totally take control of you, it will turn you into someone for who you truly are not. Denial will take hold of you when, you lose all faith and trust in everything around you, which then leaves you with no hope, as you try to move forward along your path of this journey. Denial is how Satan tries to lure you into the darkness, Satan’s goal is to bring us all into the darkness of evil, so he can become more powerful than Jesus with all his goodness, this is why we all need to stand tall within the light, so when the darkness comes, it will never last, as good will always prevail over evil. While in Denial, you will alienate yourself from all others, this is how we become divided from each other and totally how we try to divide all those around us. To deny ourselves to walk with Jesus, we first must forget who we have become within this society, then open our hearts wide, as Jesus will then fill our hearts with his love, when the blood of Jesus passes through your heart, it will warm your body and soul, with denial you will feel no warmth and the deep cold of Satan will bring total darkness within your soul. This is what is wrong with this society of today, Satan through denial has a strong hold on us all, it is time we break that hold, get back in touch with our true feelings and emotions, so the blood of Jesus Christ flows through our hearts and warms our souls once again, this is when we all can be true to who we are, leaving all the denial, ugliness and chaos in our wake.

Jesus said to his Disciples, ” one of you will deny me three times”, they all looked at each other with unrest, but as Jesus took to the cross for us all, we also learned that the one who denied Jesus those three times, then took his own life, as he couldn’t live with himself for what he had done. Denial is that powerful and will control everything of you and about you, it will have you make lies upon lies, because you then lose your way and do not know how to escape the clutches of the denial. Through all the lies the denial then finds more strength to further the grasp it has on us, because we have become someone we are not, we then go very deep within the denial and lose sight of all reality around us, it is when we lose the reality, that we then try to percieve this fake reality and make it like, we are in reality and try to lure all those around us, into the fake reality we then created. We then think this fake reality is the only way and become angry at all others, when they do not see things as we do, which then has us divide ourselves further from all who is around us.

If we are all walking our paths today with our eyes wide open, we can clearly see where all this power of denial lies mostly, it is totally within those so called leader’s within the walls of Washington DC, and even more so within the walls of all the media platforms out there today. These people within these walls are so far in denial, that they now are bringing fear into all our lives, just so they can try to achieve all the power over us all. Once denial wreaks it’s Havoc on you, it then becomes difficult to see any other way except your own, it will have you put up these walls around you, that others can not come near you, which does nothing but further the division of you and those around you. What the media is doing now is, bringing us all their fear agendas to scare us enough to climb into their world, true they do bring us the news, but it is watered down to the point, they only bring to us, what they want you to know, so they can continue with their fear agendas. They want us to fear everything so they can seem as they are more powerful than anything else. These leaders and the media will lie to our faces everyday, proving just how far in denial they are, they want you to believe what they are feeding you, so you as well, can become a part of their ” fake realities”, which will give them a fake feeling of power over us all. Then when you add in the groups like the Soros and the Gates of the world, with their sick twisted ideologies, makes the fight seem really hard to overcome? But with the true faith and belief in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, we all can get through the darkness, back into the light and aboard the path of righteousness of peace and joy, once again.

For Whom do you think I am? We all have these questions we can not truly answer, so we then make up an answer, then keep saying the same answer over and over in our heads, so it then becomes what we think is the real answer? In todays society we have become so engulfed in these fake answers, that now we are so lost along our paths, that even this journey has become a fake journey. We are taking the true words of our pasts and twisting them, to fit into all the sick twisted ideologies of today. TRUST!!! This does not exist in our world today, simply because, there is no room within the world of denial. We will never have any hope, because within the world of denial, there is never any faith in anything. We are all walking aimlessly through our paths, because we all have lost our purpose through this journey, We all have our dreams of what we want, but never take the steps forward to achieving those dreams, mostly because we have become so lazy within this ugly society. It is one thing to be divided into two parties, such as the Democrats and the Reublicans, but when you try to divided the masses even further, this should be a red flag flashing in front of us all saying, Whoa!!! put on the breaks and let’s get back to true reality, lets get back to being of truly who we are, lets step away from the denial, so we can get back to the love of Jesus Christ, a big part of this is, getting back to truly trusting ourselves and each other, so we than can have the faith to keep moving forward and keep alive the hope one step at a time.

With the faith in Jesus Christ as well as yourself, the darkness of Satan will never last, as you will always find the light of the path of righteousness, the power of denial will never latch on to you and slither away like the snake it is, you will see right through all the lies, exposing them for the fake qualities they hold, so you then can have hope, to be better and stronger moving forward along your path, of this journey through life. Sometimes the darkness will be so overwhelming, that you then bury your true self to protect from all harm, this is as bad as making one lie to hide the other lies,, as it does nothing but keep you from being true to who you are, it keeps you from seeing the light of salvation, as the dark clouds become even thicker over head. The Politicians within the walls of Washington DC all know to well, what it is to create one lie to hide another, then the media knows all to well, in twisting these lies around, then bringing them to the masses, like they are the realities of this society. We the people need to see through the fake reality, so we can move forward within the true reality, don’t let the grip of denial take away who you truly are, so the blood of Jesus can flow through your heart and warm your soul, as the light of salvation, takes you out of the darkness and into, the peace and joy, that Jesus showed us, as he walked his path through thius journey of life.

” For Whom do you think I am…………as I am your savior that will take you out of the darkness and into the light, keeping you true to who you are”

” The lies, the fake realities, the darkness are all just temporary, as the the faith and the trust will bring the light and the salvation forever”

” Denial is a force that will control everything of you and around you and will bring you into a fake world of darkness with no light”

Face all Fears with confidence through the Love

” Perfect love cast out fear”

John 4:18

” It is only the fear of God that can deliver us from the fear of man”

The only Cleric to sign the Declaration of Independence

John Witherspoon

Emotions may come and go, but we must never let them mislead us along the paths we walk. Feelings also may come and go, but the commitment will always stay, the commitment will keep us true to Jesus Christ, as well as having true faith, even at our most vulnerable times, and will keep away negative emotions like, doubt and fear. Jesus Christ chose the cross, forever committing himself to us, So let’s chose, on the front end, to be equally committed to him, no matter what trials or tragedies may come.

Fear will come to each of us at very different times, it will take full control as well. There are many different fears we will face, but none of them, with the true faith and commitment to Jesus Christ, that we can not conquor. A fear of anything is mostly of the unknown, and not truly knowing of what may be next to come, as we move forward through the fear. You climb a mountain and at the summit you are within the clouds of a storm, there is lightening all around you, and your hair on your head is standing straight up, from all the electric energy around you? This is a fear of not knowing where thr next lightening strike will be, and hopefully not a direct hit on the top of your head? You gain confidence with these types of fears, simply by knowing the right thing to do and taking shelter in a spot away from anywhere, that will reduce the chances of that direct hit.

Fear will also come from any unknown, like for instance, camping off the grid, in an area with no service, no runing water, no utilities, where you rely on a propane lantern or a campire to see at night. You are surrounded by thick forest and the night sky makes for a tough view at night, plus not knowing what is within the forest and fearing what may slip out of the forest, as it has you on alert, for every little sound or crackling of branches, within the thick forest. This type of camping will have you take the action of being prepared, while you are deep within mother nature, but with the true commitment in Jesus Christ and the faith in him, will give you all the hope for a safe time, to be had. Fear of the unknown is the biggest fear that will come to us all, and it will change you in many different ways, but if we handle this fear correctly, always keeping the faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, then there will be no fear we can not get through. Fear will bring the dark clouds of doubt over our heads, as they will not last and the light will be over us soon enough, with the true faith and commitment in Jesus Christ.

Through the fear of God, is the hope we will have to get through all the other fears we have. God is the one that can get us out of the darkness and into the light, but sometimes we fear God for the wrong reseasons, we let the other fears control us so much, that now we do not focus on what is real, then try to move forward in our own little made up realities, to try to escape into the fake world and try to be safe along our paths. Fear will have us bury our true selves deep within, as now we portray this fake self, so others around us will see us as okay? Once we are in this fake world, it becomes harder to escape that and get back to reality, cause now we have become conditioned with a fake feeling of security. This is when we need to truly keep the true faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, as he will guide us out of the darkness of the fear and into the light of God, so we all can walk our paths in peace, within the true joy of this journey.

We only fear God because, we have become conditioned from the darkness of the other fears and have lost the faith and the commitment of Jesus Christ. So many of us have walked away from the house of God, which is what leads us down this path of other fears around us. This leads us to the paths of many temptations, which will bring us these fears, and now without the visit into the house of God, we then try to walk through the darkness on our own, with no other around, to help us in the time of need. Just by looking into the deep forest, you may never see any other type of wildlife, but there are many types that live deep inside the forest, and when not prepared, it will make for a difficult time ahead. You learn with the faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, just how to move forward with each step, to overcome those fears, as now you can walk through the darkness of the forest and get back to the light of your camp, get back to familiar area and the comfort it brings, so you can step out of the darkness, as the light from the moon and the stars, light up the night sky, as you sit by the campfire and see all the true beauty all around you.

” Fear is within us all, it will take full control as well, it will bring us many temptations, and deeper into the unknown of the fear”

“When the darkness of the fear takes hold of us, it is the faith and commitment of Jesus Christ, that helps us out of the darkness and into the light of salvation”

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”

What is really within the night sky, beyond the Stars

” We are looking for the city, that is to come”

Hebrews 13:14

” Face to face with Christ my Savior,

Face to face what will it be?

When with rapture, I behold him,

Jesus Christ who died for me?

Face to face I shall behold him,

Far beyond the starry sky,

Face to face in all his glory,

I shall see him by and by”

*** Carrie E. Breck***

Without the resurrection of Jesus Christ, we all would have no hope for the future. As the Bible promises, when this journey ends for us, we all will come face to face with Jesus Christ, as now all our questions will be answered with all our sorrows and fears to vanish. Someday when the journey ends for each of us, as no one really knows when our time will be up? We could be here for a short time, or we may be here a very long time? Only Jesus knows as he is the one we meet, at the gates of Heaven and that is the judgment day for us all.

Get out within mother nature, go set up a tent upon the Earth’s floor, chop up some firewood for the campfire and ready the pit for the center piece of camping, better known as the ” campfire”. To set up a tent upon the floor of this Earth and sleep inside the tent, goes a bit deeper than just lying on the ground, now you can actually feel the heartbeat of the Earth. you can be one with mother nature, as now you can listen to all the beautiful songs, that make up the night sky. When you truly open your ears to all the sounds within mother nature, you can hear the snake slither by, the foot steps of the moose, walking by your tent, a bit nervous? Being nervous is only natural, as you then become one with them and now you are as quiet as a bear deep within their hybernation. The peaceful serenity of the nights sky will soothe you, it helps heal you from all the stress, as it melts away from your shoulders. Some may think that sleeping on the ground within a tent is not for them? They really need to try it at least once, to truly experience the real heartbeat, of this planet, so all her beauty can soothe your soul and heal you from all the stress.

Now as the tent is set and ready for you to get a good nights rest, time to ready the fire pit, so you can build a campfire, to sit and relax from the days activities. The pit is ready and you now build the fire with the fruits of your labor, of the wood you chopped from your days chores, the flames are big as they increase the hot coals within, you stare into the fire at the red of the coals and become hypnotized as a warm feeling of relax falls over you. There is nothing like sitting around a firepit within mother nature, you listen to the Owls waking up for their nightly journey, a pack of Coyotes howling to the night sky, as the running water from the stream soothes you so. You sit there not wanting to get up, so you then look up to the moon rising over the horizon in front of you, so now as the light of the moon lights up everything around you, you see the stars within the dark, clear sky.

What is really beyond the stars within the nights sky? Are there other life forms? Is Jesus up there looking down upon us? Even with all the space trips, nobody really knows this answer, but maybe one day, as this journey comes to a close, we will find the answer to all our questions? Maybe God is up there looking down, as Jesus is within us all, with his blood flowing through our hearts and warming us with his love. You stare into the darkness of the sky and into the light of the stars, you see many that take different shapes, the big dipper, little dipper, millions of stars, with some planets as well, that make up the milky way within the nights sky. Now you see this bright light moving swiftly on it’s course, it is the space station flying by and just maybe with some Astronauts within it, writing in their daily journals. There is so much going on within the nights sky, but unless you step out of the city lights and within mother nature, you will never truly see, just how beautiful the nights sky can be. There are also these lights known as the ” northern lights”, the best viewing of these lights is either Iceland, or Fairbanks, Alaska. Yes you may see in other parts, but the best and most beautiful spots are in Iceland and Fairbanks. There is so much within mother nature, makes you wonder just how she keeps it all so prestine and beautiful.

Mother nature seems as if she is everywhere? Maybe God put another in charge of keeping all this beauty for us all? There are so many questions now, but one day we just may find out all the answers to these questions, as just like Jesus came and walked his journey among us, so to did others like Jesus, Abraham, Simon etc… So maybe there will be another like Jesus that will come before us? Will we know who he is? Or will he be a she? Or just maybe, they will blend in without any of us knowng that they are here? This journey has so much and so many questions, hopefully one day, our questions get answered, like our prayers do. Who really answers our prayers? is it Jesus? or is it a sign he places in front of us? maybe he sends others to answer what we pray? They say everything happens for a reason, so we all have to keep an eye for the reason, so maybe alot of the questions we have just might get answered, before we enter into the gates and look Jesus face to face.

Jesus Christ died for us all, so he could go within the resurrection, for we could have hope movinng forward. There is so much to this journey, there are so many questions as well, will we remember them all when we need? No worries, Jesus has it all planned and what our next assignment will be.

Go deeply into the journey of the nights sky,

Go deeply into the woods away from the city lights,

Pitch a tent on the ground to feel the heartbeat of the Earth,

Be one with nature and listen to her beautiful music,

Build a campfire and be hypnotized into relaxation,

Truly let the fire warm your soul as the stress melts away off the shoulders,

Stare into the bright lights of the nights sky,

Gaze deeply into the light of the stars as you see the milky way above,

The sun gives way to the moon and the night sky,

Just so you can see the beauty of the milky way light up the sky,

The northern lights with all its different colors,

So get to one of the two viewing spots to see the beauty,

Jesus Christ died and has risen for us on this journey,

So we can have hope bring us into the path of righteousness,

This journey has so much for us to explore,

so get out within nature and see all you can see.

That moment of Truth, will bring great rewards

” You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”

John 8:32

” The journey will start out looking a bit rough, but through the basics of life and some hard work, the view at the summit will reward you well”

What is the Truth? This is something that has escaped from our reaches today. We all have become so afraid of the truth and so afraid to be hurt from the truth, we now try to move forward with a ficticious version of the truth. When you first start out on the path you choose, it never starts out all rosey, it will have many obstacles that will trip you up and knock you down, many twisting turns that can have you lose sight of direction if you do not pay attention, but when you stay true to yourself, stay true to the faith of Jesus within you, you can overcome the obstacles, keep to the course of direction, so as you reach the summit of the journey, the views will be so rewarding, they will simply take your breathe away.

There is no path within this journey, that is either right or wrong. All the paths will have the same starting point, the same ending point, it’s what is in the middle that Jesus leaves up to each of us. When we stay true to ourselves, stay true with full faith in Jesus Christ, he will guide us, so we can make this journey the best we know how. There will be be many troubling times that will come to us along our paths, these times will totally try to control every part of us, which then we try to distort all the truths, so we can get around them, with as little pain and hurt as we can. When we distort the truths, we now are, setting aside any reality and replacing it with fake reality, so we don’t have to except it, as we only except things that bring us less pain and hurt.

There may be some that will try to rewrite the history books, a lot of the Scientific theories have been debunked and proven false, but the one thing that has stood the test of time, that brings us all comfort from generation to generation, and that many truths are within its pages, that is the book of scripture. These are the words of Jesus Christ, they may have been written in a time way before any of us were born into this world, but they are words written for each and every one of us, so we can walk through our paths, along this journey of life, so we all can be at peace and happiness always and forever, with eternal life waiting at the gates of Heaven. These words of the scripture are not just the truth from Jesus, but they are written for all, no matter who you are, regarding color, religion, creed, or whomever you may be. Jesus will never look down on us, as he is always within us, he will never discriminate, these things are on us, the people who walk their paths, within this society, along this journey of life.

The trail up the mountain may very well be like our paths we walk throughout this journey, sometimes we want to turn around and walk away, as we do not want to continue through the pain and hurt it will bring, plus a lot of the pain and hurt comes from we ourselves, as our bodies, because they are not in tune with the trail, may not let us hike the trail, as our muscles and joints become inflamed. We then quit the trail because our muscles and joints hurt us so, but this hurt is only because we are not in tune with this kind of hiking, some will continue as they find that, once they become in tune, now the trail becomes easier and they walk faster than they started out. This journey through life is much the same as walking a trail up a mountain, you just need to become tuned into the enviroment, so you can welcome all that it will bring to you.

Part of becoming tuned into any enviroment, is knowing all the truths of what and where you are going. Sometimes we do not want to know the truths, as at times we can not handle the truths, and with all truths, they at times will bring much pain and hurt, that will affect us in many different ways. Then you have some that will make up their own truths, that they will bring to you in a coddled way, so they can pull you to their twisted ideologies, as they then take full control of everything around them. These are the truths that will hurt us the most, these are the truths that do nothing but bring much ugliness to us all, these kind of truths will only have us bury the real truth, as we move forward with the made up truths, where the paths we walk, become so full of obstacles, that now we spend so much time to get around them, that this journey then passes us all by before we know it. There are so many fake truths out there today, that no matter where we go, it seems like we can’t get around them, but when we stay true to who we are and have complete faith in Jesus, he will guide us around them, so we can get over the obstacles, to reach the summit of the mountain, with its breath taking views as our reward.

The words of Jesus within the scriptures, are the one truths that have stood the test of time, it is the rest of the words being spoken today, that needs to fixed, not just fixed, but spoken in a way that, does not lead us into temptation. There are so many fake words being said today that, it is like stepping over the rocks on the trail of the mountains. Yes they will trip us up at times, and they will bring us pain and hurt, with the cuts, bruises and sprains. I know that there will always be some tripping up along this journey, but when we walk through as best we can, walk through being truly of who we are, then those scars from being tripped up, will never dictate our paths, only be a reminder of what we went through, so moving forward, we can be better and stronger with each step.

Why do we all have to be so ugly to one another? Why do we have to be so fake to each other, especially when it comes to the words out of our mouths? There is nothing within the scriptures that lead to this, it is all totally on each one of us, and only each one of us, can end all this ugliness, just by being true to ourselves, being true toward Jesus Christ, so we then can be true to each other, as we then share the love of Jesus that is within us, towards each other. So now we can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the true peace and joy, that Jesus brought to us on his journey here with us. You do not have to be a Rocket Scientist to figure this out, all you need is, dig down deep within, get back in touch with your true feeling and the common sense that is down there within, as we all now move forward with the true empathy of each other, which now, has the blood of Jesus flowing plentiful within our hearts, releasing his love within us, as it then spills over on the exterior, so we share it with each other, forever and always, throughout this journey of life.

” The truth will hurt especially when you have been fake for to long, but as you get comfortable within the truth, the beauty will have you seeing great rewards with each turn”

” Words are the most powerful thing among us, when we speak true words we shall see the beauty, the wrong words will bring us into a world of ugliness”

The day is at hand

” Put on the armor of light”

Romans 13:12

” Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not”

Lamentations 3:22

We all walk our paths through this journey of life, we each will go through many different times, with some of those times being the same and some, very different to one another. As we walk through the dark times, we may feel like we are alone? We are never alone and God is always there for us, for he is the spirit that holds a place deep within us all. We just have to truly believe, have complete faith, so he can guide us out of the darkness and into the light. God sent his only son to us, all wrapped in Human flesh, Jesus walked through his path of this journey here with us, as we crossed the many crossroads of these paths, he showed and taught us many things, so we can keep moving forward always, it is when we go backwards, that shows of how much we need to get back to the faith in God, so Jesus can lead us into the path of righteousness. It is when we have complete trust in Jesus, that we will keep moving forward, as we overcome all the battles we may encounter.

Sometimes we will feel so trapped within the darkness of our troubles, that we don’t even give a thought toward Jesus Christ, we become so consumed with the darkness and trying to find our way, that we become lost and lose all confidence in ourselves, lose all the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, to the point that we feel worthless and incapable. When we lose the drive to keep moving forward, we then doubt everything that may come to us, even that what Jesus will send us, so we can find that confidence and faith, to get out of the darkness and back into the light, to continue moving forward along our paths of this journey.

Jesus may be the blood that travels through our hearts and warms our bodies deeply with love, while God is that Holy Spirit that lives within our souls, so that when we truly feel the warmth passing through us, we can always not just get through the dark times, but see the light of salvation ahead of us, as we keep moving forward through this journey. Yes the dark times can seem really dark, with no signs of light? But when we keep to the faith and belief in God and his son Jesus, then these dark times will give way, to the brightest light we will ever know. Just because we do not see God, or Jesus, does not mean they do not exist? They are always there within us, we just need to truly feel their presence and love within us, so we can always have the trust that they will guide us out of the darkness and into the true light of salvation.

Easier said than done, as there are many who are totally afraid of the dark. Then you add in all the troubling times, the ugliness, now not only do many fear the dark, now they fear this journey with each step, and with all the ugliness of this society, only shows that there is more fear in this world, then there is love. God didn’t create all this so we could fear it all, he created all this for us to enjoy and be at peace, with each step throughout this journey. Some may put on that fake smile so others will think you are happy, while few actually feel the joy within our souls, which then God puts a real and true smile on your face, so you can share the love of Jesus, with all those around you. This journey through life is a lot more than the material things that we gather along our paths, this journey is more about the true feelings that is deep within our hearts and souls, so we then can have the trust, faith and love of Jesus always, as we then share that love with all those around us.

One of God’s ten conmandments is, ” love thy neighbor as yourself”, the way this society has grown today is, we have totally lost sight of this one. I can remember as a child, we all knew our neighbors and looked out for one another, today, not only did we forget this conmandment, we also forgot who our neighbors are, as we isolate ourselves from all those around us. This whole journey through life, is not just believing and having faith in God and Jesus, it is also of how we treat each other, help one another and just simply get along together in unity, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life. We have become so consumed in our own little worlds, that we also have lost all empathy for one another, when someone falls, we just walk by like they are not even there, when someone reaches out for help, we ignore them like the plague, why do we do this? Quite simply, we have totally lost sight of who our neighbors are and they are not just the ones who live next door, they actually walk their paths as we do, throughout this journey. Your neighbor is not just the person next door, they are the ones who live within your community, which you pass by without even a simple hello. We don’t have to be friends with everybody around us, but yes we should simply be friendly with those around us, show more compassion and empathy, which comes from the love of Jesus within us, so we all then travel through the darkness, to always see the light of salvation on the other side of the darkness.

When we all wake up each day, get ourselves ready for the days events, before we leave our houses, we first will put on this armor, which we feel it will protect us from all harm, protect us from whstever darkness will come to us? But what we are really doing is, putting on the mask with the fake smile, so we can seem to others as being happy? We are never truly happy, unless we feel the joy of God within ours souls, we are never truly happy, if we do not feel the blood of Jesus passing through our hearts and warming our bodies with his love. We have become so cold toward one another, that it is clear that we lost this love and empathy along our paths. Yes maybe there is some still there somewhere? But with the way the media brings to us all the ugliness and drama within their agendas, they don’t want us to see it, so they can keep bringing their fear agendas to us all. With all the fear and ugliness the media brings us daily, sometimes I think they are Satan, keeping us from feeling the true joy and love, that Jesus shares with us all, as we walk our paths through journey of life.

” With each day comes the light and with each night comes darkness, showing that the darkness never lasts with the light right around the corner”

” The sun may light up the day, but the true light is within us, as God lights up our souls even brighter than the sun”

The Grandstands so full throughout this journey

” Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight”

Hebrews 12:1

” All things are open to the eyes of him to whom we must give account”

Hebrews 4:13

There is nothing we will do along our paths that is too trivial, especially when God himself is looking upon us. No activity is too mundane, for when the Heavenly father looks down on us. We have all at one time or another have totally felt like this, we are alone in this journey, alone to fend off all the ugliness, alone to defend ourselves for what may be lurking around the corner? With these feelings of lonliness, we then put up these large walls all around us, so we can feel as safe as we can, when we think that we are alone with no one around? Because we can not see God, we then think he is not there? With all the ugliness that comes before us along our paths and as we think God is not there, because we do not see him, we then proceed to lose the faith in him and lose all hope moving forward, giving us the feeling of lonliness, like we are alone to defend ourselves, from whatever may be lurking around the next corner along our paths, through this journey of life.

There is so much beauty all around us, but yet we do not let ourselves see it, as we have put up these walls that block our real vision of all the true beauty. The mountains, the plant life, the oceans, the wildlife, just to name a few of what God created, so we can truly see all the true beauty around us. So how do we thank him for all this beauty? We become engulfed in all the ugliness, we become so deep in the feeling of lonliness, that we put up these walls around us, that only takes away any sight we may have, of any of the beauty. Then as we not see the beauty that God created, we then lose touch with the faith in him, which has us lose touch with any hope moving forward.

The clouds of our judgments have become so thick, that we can not see clearly as we walk our paths. We let all the Propaganda of others further cloud our judgments, which now we are walking blindly along our paths. With all the feelings of lonliness and now not trying to work hard at escaping these feelings, we then expect those around us to to guide us through, as we forget that they too may be walking through their own clouds as well. Which now as we have lost all faith in God, we also have lost all faith in ourselves, as we now deepen the thickness of the clouds, instead of making wind to blow them away.

These clouds will become very heavy and weigh us down, as we now become stagnate along our paths, instead of moving forward to try to clear the clouds from our judgments. Even the mountains become engulfed in the clouds, but because of their true beauty, the clouds do not last and once again the beauty shines through for us all to see. We to like the mountins, can once again shine with the true beauty, all we need to do is, truly believe and have complete faith in God and ourselves, so the hope will bring that beauty to us all once again. God will never let us walk alone through this journey, he will always be there when we need, we just have to have complete faith, as now our mind’s eye will see him as clear, as the beauty we see of all the mountains around us.

The little boat in this picture may seem all alone, but with the faith in God, the water it is within, will help keep all the journeys that this boat endures on, as peaceful as can be. True the waters may get churned up within the storms, but as the boat makes it’s way through the storms with the faith in itself and in God, the boat will see the light at the horizon in front of it, as it charters its course toward the light. We all will go through the darkness within this journey, there will be times we lose faith in everything around us, but when we never lose the faith in God and ourselves, we to, like this boat, will see the light at the horizon and chart a course toward the light. This journey through life is as tough as we make it, as when we are within the clouds of the storm, is when we need not lose any faith in God or ourselves, so there will always be light on the horizon, for us to chart a course straight for that light.

We must always take in account our Heavenly father, as it is he who, with our faith, that will guide us always into the light, so through the darkness he is the beacon for us, to see through the darkness and into the light. All this beauty around us, was not created for us to take a daily walk through, it is created so we all can see the true beauty of God, see that he is there around us all, and we are never alone throughout this journey, as much as we may think at times? God is always there for us, especially in times of need, we just need not just take account for him, but have complete faith in him as well as ourselves, so in the times of darkness, we shall always see the light at the horizon, to chart a course toward, as we walk our paths, through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness, that God had envisioned for us all, when he created all this beauty.

” The grandstands of this journey through life is always full with the love of God, for each and every one of us always”

” In the grandstands at the ball game, they may be cheering for the players, but in the grandstands of life, God is cheering for us all always, no matter of who you are”

Statue of Liberty for all

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

John 8:36

” America is free because of the brave”

Bowlingchef

We all celebrate a birthday each year of our existence, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, so does this great country that America is celebrate her birthday each year since the creation of America. There may be many that want to come here to escape the perils of their Homelands, some may want to sneak onto the lands here in America and go unseen, there are rules to live by, so if you follow the rules, then you can be as free as you want and free to do as you do, while walking your path. Just as we have the Statue of Liberty here in America, symbolizing freedom, there is also a statue of Liberty on the hill outside Jerusalem, that lights the way toward eternal life. There are many statues throughout this country of America, with each on being a symbol of different times in the history of America. There have been many throughout the history of America that have given there all, so we today can be as free as we are, to do as we do everyday, all the statues are a tribute to these brave souls, that have given their all and paid the ultimate sacrifice for this country that America has become.

America needs its people more than ever now, so we can be as strong in the future, as we were is the past of this country, so America can celebrate many more birthdays to come. There is much ugliness right now in the world, and through this ugliness, there are some trying really hard to take down this country of America. As we the people of America unite and stand as one, without becoming divided as those who are trying to take us over wants us to be, we will show them that there is strength in numbers and they will lose if they bring harm to this great country. I get the fact that we are all equal in the eyes of God, no matter where your homeland may be? But you will always have good and evil, no matter where you travel throughout this world. Through evil there are some that will brainwash you with their sick and twisted ideologies, so they can achieve all the power, control and wealth throughout the world, sometimes it may seem like evil will win as it seems like it is everywhere, but God is everywhere and when we stay true to who we are, with the faith in God, good will always win over evil, especially when we all come together as one, just as the brave souls did, throughout the history of America, as now we here in America are as free as we want, to do freely what we do everyday.

America is the land of opportunity for all, while we are as free as we want, while we find the best opportunity that fits us perfectly. I get the fact that some may see otherwise as they may “think” they are less of, but they only think this way simply because, they have given up and are now looking for a handout. There are no handouts here in America, you want freedom, then you are going to have to work hard for it, as freedom isn’t free and does come with a price, just look back in the history of America, at all the brave souls, who have paid the ultimate sacrifice, so we today can be as free as we are. You have to work hard for any freedom, as the early Settlers did that came to America. They had to work at building a trust with the Natives that were already here, they had to build their communities grow their crops and learn of the new land they have come to. These are the ones who blazed the trails for us today, as we walk our paths through this journey. Now as America grew throughout this land, so did the people as well, as they had their families and others who may have heard and came to this land as well, now America will have its hardest test, how will we all work together in creating this land of freedom, that America has become? Yes you will have some who will try to disrupt and bring their twisted ways to the land, but when America stands tall, stands as one, the good will always win over evil, as America then survives for yet another birthday celebration, of joy and happiness.

America the beautiful and yes it is truly beautiful, with many areas standing tall and proud. America has so many resources among it, with the best resource being the people within this great country. There have been so many who have blazed the trails throughout America, these are the ones, through their blood, sweat and tears, worked very hard, to make our lives today that much easier. There are so many natural resources as well, that we here in America can survive greatly throughout the future. America also has had some great Leaders, who have helped bring us into the future better and stronger and yes, there have also been failed leadership that tried to bring this country down as well throughout her history, as you can see, America is still here and stronger than ever, cause the good always out weighs the bad, as America moves forward into the future, year after year. We the people of this country here in America, are our own worst enemies at times, some will divide us with their sick twisted ideologies, their twisted agendas, they will try to seek all the power, control and greed that they can, then they will try to force us away from truly being of who we are, so they can prosper over the rest of us. This is the situation in front of us now, we need to stand tall together, unite as one, so those who seek to divide us, will fail and go off into that goodnight, so the real America will prevail, as we walk our paths through this journey, as free as we want, to do as we want, while we enjoy all the true beauty that America has to offer.

May the real America stand up? I have the faith in this country that America will always stand tall, no matter what may come her way? True what is going on in this country may seem overwhelming? Buit if you look back in history, what is going on, has been tried before and failed. Then you have Leaders of other countries who want world dominence, and will do whatever they can to achieve it, this also has been tried throughout the history of the world, but some among us, want to take away all the history, so we have nothing to look back at, as we move forward better and stronger. When we glance back at the what was, we then can move forward with the what ifs, to be better with each step along our paths. For America to truly grow moving forward, we the people within this country, need to grow moving forward. America is as strong as its people, and when the people are weak, this is what makes this country ripe for a take over, from any other country within this world. Through weakness is division and when we are divided we then become ripe for others to walk all over us and our paths. When we unite as one and come together, this is how we build strength moving forward, when we reach out and help one another no matter who you may be, as we walk our paths through this journey, this is how you build strength and when we are strong, then there is no country that will come mess with this great country that America is.

America will always be one generation away from extinction, just like each and every country throughout this world. The way each generation is raised and walks their paths of this journey, will determine of how we walk together in unity, so with all the technology out there and the way we stay behind it, with no interaction of each other anymore? This scares the hell out of me, and should scare the hell out of you as well, cause now all our futures and the what ifs, now look bleak as we all become victims of all our realities. It is time to stand tall and unite together, step away from the devices and interact with each other, so we all can move forward better and stronger throughout this journey. May God Bless this world, may God bless this great country of America, and may God bless each one of us, as we come together in unity, to walk our paths in peace, throughout this journey of life.
