” Hello Mr. Kraft, my name is Tom Brady and the best decision this organization has ever made”. This is how Tom Brady introduced himself to Bob Kraft when they first met and now, the rest is history.
You don’t just wake up one day and suddenly you are a Legend at whatever you wish, it takes work and not just work but, long, hard, dedicated work. First you have to explore your options, try many things, til you find that one thing you not only love, but really want to excel in excellence at becoming the best at whatever that thing is you choose to be your craft.
Tom played baseball growing up, but being a strong New England sports fan, I am so glad he decided to love the sport of football. Tom’s work ethnic is second to none, he is the first one at practice and the last one to leave everyday, even when he is home, he watches film on the next team he is playing, he studies them inside and out, so he can read them like a book, then pick them apart with great passes to his teammates. Tom may be a gifted Quarterback in the NFL, but that gift came with a lot of hard, dedicated work.
Tom came to the Patriots like all other players in the league, through the draft, but Tom was drafted so far down the depth chart, that he was like an after thought that, hey maybe we can pick him up and put on the practice squad, to basically just go through the reps and maybe see what he can do? Well Tom studied the ways of the Patriots and the league to the point, when Drew Bledsoe went down with the injury, Tom never looked back and seized the day, taking the Patriots to the Superbowl and beyond.
It is not just Tom working hard to become a legend within the NFL and helping the Patriots become a dynasty within the league, that also comes from one of the greatest Coaches ever to coach in the NFL and that is, Bill Belichek. Bill like Tom eat, sleeps and drinks the game of football, he studies the game as well, giving him the knowledge, to create the most high tech playbooks within the sport of football. Now if Bill was a poker player, he would be the best, as he never shows his hand, until the time is right, which keeps the other team, not only confused, but keeps them guessing as well. Bill knows how to recruit talent, just as much as unloading the talent, when they are on their down slide. He loves a player that is not afraid to play any position on the field, as well as……..he is one of the few, that still like the position of Full back on the team and he grabs a player that is the toughest at that position, of which Devlin excels perfectly at the position of full back, for the New England.
The New England patriots the last 20 years have a legendary Coach and Quarterback, that work very hard daily, which has earned them the biggest title of them all and that is, earning the title of becoming a Dynasty within the sport of football. A Dynasty of anything takes a lot of hard work , not just for one Individual, but for many who make up that team. Bill Belichek recruited many different players through the years he has been here in New England, with the top recruit being a guy named………. Tom Brady. These two have been the common denominator on the team, with many different numerators over the years and with Bill putting a great system in place, the rest is history as the Patriots, year after year, have become the team to beat by all the other teams in the league.
” Achieving excellence in anything takes a lot of very hard work and doesn’t come that easy”
” A Dynasty is like and orchestra, with all on the same page and the same note, with a great Conductor bringing them together in harmony”
” You can’t have the dynasty without the legend and without the great supporting cast there is no legend”
” With winning breeds hatred, but if you want to win and become champion, then step up to the plate and beat a true champion”
Power is good when you are in a boat on the water, or maybe driving in a car on a road trip, anything mechanical needs power to survive, but we the people do not need power to survive, much to the sha-grin of what those in Government think? When you get voted in by the people of your country, it’s not about becoming more powerful than you once were, it is more about being a great leader, so the people who voted you in, will follow, with no regret.
When you have power it has nothing to do with being a leader, as much as our elected officials may have us think, especially those within the Democratic party, who are so far in denial that they have lost all sense of reality. These same Democrats who live within their gated communities that have state of the art security, but yet don’t want you or I to feel the same safety where we live? There is a major concern down on our southern border that needs to be addressed, but the Democrats don’t see it that way, they would rather push forth their agendas, then the agendas of the ones who put them within the walls of Washington DC. There is a shutdown in our Government right now, not a 100% shutdown, only about 70%? But during this shutdown the Speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi goes to Hawaii for some fun in the sun, plus not too mention her flights to Washington DC and her home she puts in as travel expense, who do you think pays that expense? That’s right…………..we the people of this country, I think term limits are warranted, as there are some becoming way too comfy within the walls of Washington DC.
Right now there is a power struggle going on about putting up a wall along our southern border, this wall cost money and the Democrats won’t budge on the issue of no funding, even with all the facts out there of the drugs, the riff raff, the criminal Illegals all flooding this country, I do credit the Border Patrol for the job they are doing, but it is a tall task with miles and miles of Border to cover everyday. 90% of the Heroin coming into this country, is coming right through our southern border and even with many Americans over dosing, the Democrats still can’t see the real reality right in front of them, but instead they are focused more on letting the Illegals come in here, sponge of us the Tax Payer and even vote for them so they can stay in power. It is not about all the power you can gain, if you can not be a true Leader, then it is time for you to go and get out of the walls of Washington DC.
President Trump to this point is doing a stand up job, he has done more in two years, than the last three Presidents and the twenty four years combined between them, he wants so bad to achieve another promise to we the people, but the Democrats are standing in the way and think that there is no crises on our southern Border? I think it is time that we the people flood the phone lines whether cell or land line, of all the men and woman of Congress, to let them know of their denial and it’s time to wake up and get back in touch with reality, or we the people will vote them out, just as quick as they were voted in. When you think about having all the power within the walls of Washington DC, what you are really doing is, screwing the American people of their rights and their lives, without giving two shakes of a lamb’s tail, or having any care for who you may be walking all over. A true Leader does not do that, as a true Leader will get the job done without stepping on anybodies shoe shine.
President Trump is that Leader, okay he may be a bit rough with his words, but only because he does not believe in this ” Political Correction”. President Trump is a CEO and a Business man and he is running this country as a Business, just like all the Businesses that make up this country, he puts the right people around him that will best do the job, but like all CEO’s they are result driven and when you don’t give results………..you get replaced, like President Trump has done with some of who were around him. The Democrats don’t see this only because they are so far in denial, they really can’t see anything, not even themselves as they look in the mirror. The left Bias Media is much the same as they to have been spun out of the same web. I know there are a lot of others out there who are smart enough and not in denial to true reality, that totally see right through the Democrat hypocrisy, it is us that needs to be stronger, be patient, as this crap will not go on forever and hopefully someone within the Democratic party, finally wakes up to reality and snaps the others back to the same reality, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life, in peace and happiness once again, while we all move forward.
All these Democrats can live within their gated communities and feel safe, then why can’t you and I feel safe in our communities, we have the same right to this safety as they do, but we have to put up with the ” Illegals” because the Democrats are forcing them down our throats, whether we want them or not. There is a group coming through our Borders and they are brutal, they are MS 13 and they are coming here with no cares of who they hurt and they are not just hurting, but killing Americans as we speak, the left Bias media and the Democrats won’t speak of them, because of their denial, they simply can not see this, or just maybe they do not want to see this, because it will effect their agenda, that they want to cram down our throats. The time is now for each of us as Americans, to stand up against all this Hypocrisy, before America as we once knew it disappears from us, plus Socialism never works, all you need to do is, look within history at the old USSR, or the present Venezuela, Let’s all get behind President Trump and truly ” Make America Great Again.
” Socialism will never work, because nothing is ever free and always comes with a cost”
” Illegal Immigration means you are doing something wrong and you need to change what you are doing”
” America was built on Immigration, but Immigration done the correct way for us all to be in peace and happiness with less drama”
” It’s not as much about having the power, as it is all about being a true leader and truly leading without stepping on anybodies shoe shine”
This quote by little eight year old Martin Richard, who we lost so tragically at the Boston marathon bombings, will forever stand the test of time throughout all the new Year’s, as the best quote ever.
With this being the last week of 2018 and the new 2019 right around the corner, is this really going to be a new year, or just much of the same? Seems like we spend more time on partying in the new year, than doing anything in truly making it a new year. We all take too much for granted of the leader’s we put in place to bring real change to us, when all we need to do is, each and every one of us, with our actions, are the ones that can bring real change around us. Real change starts with us, we first need to get off our fannies, put in the work, instead of partying at every turn, so not just we ourselves can be at peace, but all those around us can be at peace as well.
We all set these resolutions of which we never follow through on? We only never follow through because talk is cheap and actions speak louder. A resolution is meaningless unless you follow through on what you say and not speak, just to heat up the air with hot air from your mouth around you. If you know you are not going to follow through on your resolution, then say nothing and just let your actions say what you really want to say. Resolutions are useless anyways, only because it’s the lazy way out of a conversation, instead of confidently speaking in a conversation and truly making the change you want to make.
Why do we call it a ” New Year”, if we still do all the same things, except the fact that the year itself has changed. Whether it is domestic or abroad, we never really have any real change, we have a lot of hot air talking of change, but the true change we never receive. Some may change the approach of the change, then say they made change, but the same old same old still comes back to us, as the change disappears. True change comes from deep within each of us, we first have to be on the same page and not resist any change, whether it’s from ourselves or another. As we the people look toward our so called leaders for the change, how can they truly bring real change to us, if they themselves can not even see eye to eye, without the bickering and the arguing between each other? If someone comes forth with real change, it gets immediately shot down, cause it didn’t come from they themselves, which in the long run, has us all stay within ourselves, instead of working towards bringing real change to us all, so we than can move forward on our paths, of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.
Happy New Year is truly each one of us coming together in peace and happiness, while we bring real change to each other, that will help us all be stronger and better than the year prior. Happy New Year is not about just changing a year, then we all continue all the hatred and ugliness of each other. We all may think that real change starts at the top? On the contrary…….. It starts with each one of us, whether your on the top, the bottom or the middle, working together in harmony and helping to bring real change to us all, moving forward throughout this journey of life.
We can still celebrate the coming of a new year, but there is a big difference between a celebration and just partying in the new year. You celebrate cause you are working at the true change, to bring into the new year and share with all around you. You party in the new year, only to wake up not feeling good or remembering anything of the night before. Somewhere in the translation of Happy New Year, we have lost the true message of bringing real change around us, which is why we have to look back, not to dwell in the past, but to see where we went wrong, fix what we need to fix, so we than can move forward along our paths of this journey through life, better and stronger, as the proper and real change comes to us and we all can be at, the true peace and happiness always.
” Happy New Year is not just the changing of a few numbers on the calendar, it is the bringing of true change to us all always”
” A true Happy new Year should bring us all peace and happiness always”
” ” No more hurting people peace” this should be more than a quote and help us all bring real change to each other”
” A celebration is happy and peaceful, as a party is something a lot of times we do not remember”
Can you see him? Look closely and with total faith, you shall see the face of Jesus Christ within this stump. The eyes, the nose, the mouth and wearing the crown of thorns upon his head, Jesus is everywhere and with total faith in him, you shall see him wherever you are. You see that is what’s wrong within this society, too many have wandered away from having faith in Jesus, as they think they can do without him? This is totally why we have so much corruption, ugliness and hatred around us today, plus without the total faith in Jesus as well as the total faith in ourselves, now we walk our paths of this journey through life, not just without a purpose, but with many troubles, whether we want them or not?
Jesus didn’t come to us just to walk this journey, he came to us out of love, he came to us to show us, just how to get to the path of righteousness, he came to us to show us that, no matter of what troubles you, when you hold him deeply within your heart, then there will be a warm feeling of love that will have you glow in joy and when you glow with joy, then it will permeate throughout all else who walk this journey as well, while the love of Jesus spreads like a wildfire through a forest.
Now as we enter into another wonderful Christmas time of year, let us all remember the true meaning of Christmas, the day that Jesus was born into this World to walk his journey with us. Also with this day full of love, let us truly feel the love, so we than can spread it with each other and make this season even more wonderful, plus have it last all year, everyday.
” Through love there will never be any hatred, as there is no more room in the Inn for the hatred”
When we have total faith in Jesus Christ and ourselves, there will always be hope for better times on the horizon, as we then will be better and stronger along our paths, to face any kind of troubles that may cross our paths. We will be better at recognizing any kind of trouble that may be ahead of us, so we than can not only be ready, but be strong enough to fight off whatever the trouble may be. We as we walk our path of this journey, are on borrowed time, or within rented space, simply because, we to are born into this World with a new beginning and with every beginning, there must always be an ending also. We all have the love of Jesus Christ within us always, just that this thing called ” Life” can and will overwhelm us, plus it will get in our way of truly having any faith, which then leaves us with no hope, for any kind of positive future throughout this journey.
None of us really didn’t lose the feeling of love within us, just that we let all the ugliness consume us so, we let life get in the way of us entering the house of God, not just to worship him, but to chat with him, to forgive us of our wrongs, so we than can, forgive ourselves to truly heal from what hurts us so. Now let this Christmas season inspire us, let this season help us get back in touch with the true love of Jesus, so as not just to warm our souls, but to truly share it with each other, to help us all heal our wounds from the pain and hurt, that has us so troubled, as all the hatred and the ugliness goes away from us and we finally walk within the peace of Christ moving forward along this journey of life.
” The love of Jesus Christ is always within us, we just need true faith in him and ourselves to truly feel it’s warmth”
” Jesus is everywhere and can be seen everywhere, no matter of how you look at whatever you are looking at”
” The warmth of the love of Jesus will and can, heal us from all our troubles we encounter on our paths”
” Jesus told him, ” Go your way; Your faith has saved you” Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way”
As we walk our paths through this journey of life and even though, our eyes are wide open, we to like the blind man can not see for what is truly in front of us. Like this picture of the forest, it may look like nothing, with many obstacles in front of us, but when we truly do not look deeply into what we see, than we to like the blind man, will never see all the true beauty that is around us. We get so caught up within all the ugliness and hatred around us, that we let our arrogance get in the way of truly seeing whats in front of us, then we let the fear of the ugliness and hatred, keep us from getting out and truly feeling the love of God within us, which helps us keep the faith in his son Jesus Christ within our hearts, so we can share this love and faith, with each other, as we then open all our eyes widely, to all the true beauty around us.
Just as the Blind man tried to get the attention of Jesus and come over to him, we to within our souls and with the inner child that is deep within all of us, try to bring Jesus closer to us, but with our arrogance and the clouds within our judgments, we think that he isn’t listening to us, so we then begin the process of losing the faith in him, which then has us losing the faith of ourselves, to truly see deeply of all that is around us, it then leaves us being as blind as the true blind man, that doesn’t walk a path, but wanders through the path, of this journey through life.
Being truly blind without being able to see anything, doesn’t mean that you can not see, only the true blind man will tell you that, he actually see’s clearly of what’s within him, with his true feelings coming out, so he can walk his path of this journey, just as if he can really see like all of us with our sight. When one of our functions isn’t working as it should, is when our faith in Jesus and ourselves is so important, so we then without becoming so arrogant, see all the true beauty that is around us. When we are in touch with our true feelings that is within us all and with our faith in Jesus, then that child within us all, can grow within us as healthy and strong as it needs, which has us all, keeping the faith of ourselves, to walk this journey better and stronger with each step.
Through all the ugliness and hatred, is when we lose the faith in Jesus Christ and ourselves, simply because we let our arrogance get in the way, so we then lose the feeling of our true feelings, which then has us lose of who we truly are. When we are someone we truly are not, we then get lost within the clouds of our judgments, with the feeling of self doubt getting in the way of truly seeing the beauty all around us. When we doubt of who we are, we then will never see our way around any obstacle, which will then have us not only losing any faith within us, but we will never become stronger, so we then will never be better and definitely, through our arrogance, we will never truly see anything as the blind man.
When we are truly of who we are, always keeping the faith in Jesus Christ and ourselves, our arrogance will never get in the way of us seeing the true beauty around us. With faith comes hope and with hope, even through blindness, we will always keep feeling our true feelings within us, so then not only that inner child within us can grow healthy and strong, we to can grow healthy and strong, to be better at all we do moving forward, as we then never lose sight of all the true beauty around us. With the blindness of our arrogance, never being an issue of us getting around the obstacles, as we walk our paths, through this journey of life.
” Even the blind man can see with the faith in Jesus, giving him the faith in himself to truly see the beauty all around him”
” With our arrogance bringing forth our self doubt, we will always be blind to all the true beauty all around us”
” When we can see the true beauty of this picture, we will never see the obstacles within it”
” It may seem that Jesus isn’t listening to us, but with faith is when we clearly hear him speaking to us within our hearts”
” There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name who can at the same time speak ill of me”
*** Mk 9:39b***
We all walk through this journey of life, the same journey that Jesus walked, when he came to us. Jesus showed us of just how to walk this journey in peace and love, all the ugliness and hatred comes from we the people getting away from our weekly Sunday gatherings, within the walls of the house of God. Without the chance to speak quietly with God, in a setting of peace and joy, it then opens us up to the temptation of the fires of hell, which within this Society and all the ugliness and hatred that surrounds us now, simply proves further that, there are many that have given into that temptation, instead of truly accepting the peace and love of God within us.
Now you don’t always have to enter the house of God and many of us have found other ways to chat with God in their own ways, seeking not only his advice, but to keep the feeling of God’s love alive and strong deep within their hearts and souls. As when we do enter the house of God, we do so with respect, just as though we expect others to enter within our homes showing respect as well. The weekly gathering within the house of God, is us going to church, to not just attend a mass, but take part in the Lord’s prayer, the Lords feast and excepting the blood and body, of his son Jesus Christ, within ourselves, to love and share with all those around us.
It is so easy to simply blend in and get caught up within all the ugliness and hatred around us, the hard part is to except and truly feel the love of God within us, only because we in this society don’t want to be labeled or looked at as, different or a freak, because we then let everything around us affect us in a negative way, staying positive in this ugly society may seem hard, but it is a lot easier than we let on to, The biggest thing attending a mass within the house of God gives us is, keeping the faith in God alive within our souls, so we than can keep alive all hope, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.
Going to mass each week gives us a chance to get back touch with who we truly are, the love, faith and hope, not too mention the accepting of the blood and body of Jesus Christ deep within our hearts and souls. When you receive the body of Christ at communion, you don’t just chew it and swallow it, you let it melt in your mouth, as it then gets absorbed deep into your heart and soul, which then journey’s deeply within your whole being.
When we are all born within this society, we become baptized within the house of God, later we then make our first communions within God’s house, then still later we make our confirmations also within God’s house, we allow so much to happen to us within the walls of the house of God, but yet we still walk away from the house and for some, never to return? The house of God is everything of who we truly are, all the other crap only comes to take us away from who we are and forces us to become someone for who we truly are not.
The house of God keeps us in control of who we truly are, as we strive for the eternal peace, the faith and the love, so we then can always have hope in all we do, as we get to the true path of righteousness within this journey, which then will help us keep the fires of hell and the temptation to succumb to all the ugliness that may try to over come us, throughout this journey of life.
” The house of God is so much of who we truly are, but yet we walk away from it like it never existed”
” The house of God brings us love and peace, as the fires of hell brings us temptation and ugliness full of hate and chaos”
” Jesus died on the cross for the salvation of us all, but yet we repay him with the walking away from the house of his father”
” Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned with salt, that you may know how you ought to answer each one”
*** Colossians 4:6 ***
Okay time for my little buddy to make another appearance once again. For those who don’t know, this is little eight year old Martin Richards, he was taken from this Earth by two deranged Individuals, that decided to bring tragedy to the Boston marathon, as they placed two bombs, with one at the finish line, right beside this innocent young boy. This sign he holds are his words and shows just how special this young man was, with what could of been a great life cut short.
Within this society we all walk our journey’s, there is way too much ugliness, drama and hatred of each other. A lot of it simply comes from the way we not only treat each other, but the way we speak to each other, just drive down the road and you will hear a whole different vocabulary than what you care to listen to. Some will be nice to your face when you are around, then when you turn your back, forget the niceness and out comes the slander. people of today want nothing more than to see others fail, make mistakes, or even fall and become hurt………… as they totally forget that they themselves have gone through the same, just that they don’t want to admit to their flaws at all.
Look no further than our so called leaders within the walls of Washington DC. They not only back stab each other, but they back stab the ones who put them into office as well. Now that we actually have a President that is working for the people that put him there, those on the left will do and say anything, to denounce everything he does, the people that the President tries to put around himself, so he can do an even better job than what he is doing now, have been scrutinized, ridiculed and have had lies put in their mouths, by those on the left, who will stop at nothing, to bring down a seated President. Those on the left won’t even call our President a President, simply because they are so far in denial. that they have lost all sense of what true reality is. We can’t even get a Supreme Court Justice confirmed, without those on the left, doing anything they can, to stall and delay, the conformation, only to better suit themselves, instead of the good of this great country of America. In Washington DC it is all about playing the game of power, instead of actually doing the job, for which they were voted in to do. It is time for each of us Americans, at the mid term elections, to really send a message to those on the left and anyone else, that is so far in denial, of what true reality is, as they are now on the outside looking in.
We of this society need to do a better job at showing true empathy and love of each other, before it becomes lost forever? Or even worse, more of us Humans become victims of a senseless tragedy, as did Martin Richards, on such an ugly day. It is just sad that we rally together when we truly need to heal and become better along this journey, but yet 95% of the time, we don’t even acknowledge each other, let alone show any kind of love or empathy, which happens to be feelings, deep within each of us. It all starts at the top, with our so called Leaders, these are the ones that need to not only work together, but coincide in their environment, so as to not only make this country better and stronger, but make the lives of all Americans better and stronger as well. Plus all those that are looked at as role models within the sporting world, they need to simply shut up and play the sport, that they get big dollars to play, instead of opening their mouths and spewing their hateful opinions, of an elected official, for whom they don’t care for and even further, when you use the sport you play and receive big dollars playing, for a platform to protest, I challenge you to take some of your big dollars to the community you live and put your money where your mouth, so you can make a difference, instead of being nothing but a pain in the Ass, with your uncalled for protests, taking away from the sport you play.
” No more hurting people……………peace”
*** Martin Richards***
” The easiest thing we do but we make it the hardest, is quite simply the way we chat with one another”
” Instead of looking at one another with hateful eyes, let’s try looking and seeing the good within all those around us”
” Good will always win over evil, just that we as a society are too consumed with all the evil around us, that we can’t see clearly through the clouds of our judgments”
” The spirit of truth……….dwells with you and will be in you”
Throughout this journey of life for which we all walk, there are many ways to empower us, there are many things that come to us, to help us become better and stronger with each step, but the one thing that is within us all, to help us walk this journey correctly, is the spirit of truth that God gave us and his son Jesus taught us, when he came and walked his journey here with us.
We take so for granted this thing called ” Truth” that is within us all, sometimes we can’t handle the truth, simply because certain things that have scarred us so, or we try to put ourselves above all other’s, so we twist the truth in a way that, it fits into our agenda, so we than can step on one another, without letting the feelings of guilt, keep us from moving forward along this journey of life. God didn’t create us to attack, make fun of, or step on each other just to get ahead of each other, he created each of us, to love one another, as we would love ourselves. Truth is that thing within us all, that we will never see, but yet we will always feel deep inside the warmth, of God’s love within our hearts, so we than can share that love with each other, as we all move forward better and stronger.
There is this thing within our Government of today and it is called the ” Washington Power game”, This power has nothing to do with any truth, as it is all about power and control over everything around them. This power game has no true feelings and it will hurt all that comes in contact with it. This power game comes from we as humans who walk this journey and we as humans, simply do not have to follow and play this game, that brings so much hurt and ugliness to this broken society of today. When we don’t get caught up within this game and truly be of who we really are, will only help us become stronger throughout this journey, not too mention truly feeling God’s love within our hearts and then sharing that love with each other.
This Washington power game is played by all, within the walls of Washington D. C. These Individuals and because they have lost that true feeling of love within their hearts and have lost all true reality deep within their souls, so because they are so lost, they than try to push all the crap and ugliness, on the rest of us, as they truly can not see the plain truth, that is right there in front of them. They have become so lost within their reality, they have lost everything that true reality is. They make up stories with their fake truths, then expect the rest of us, to buy into their fake stories? While they keep their agendas and their so called power game going forward, all the while we all within reach of their crap, hurt real pain, while we walk our paths, through this journey of life.
” The power for life, has nothing to do with taking the power and control over everything that may be around”
” The Washington Power game that our Law makers strive so for, does nothing but, disrupt all the lives for who walks this journey”
