The longest day……… 6/6/1944

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

The water’s are calm now, but back over 70 years ago, we owe a huge debt to the men and woman, who fought the good fight, with many not making it past that day. These men and woman should never be forgotten, as if it weren’t for them, we of this Society may not be free to roam as we do today? This country just might of been a bit different today if it wasn’t for these brave hero’s of that time. These men and woman didn’t ask for this fight, but yet they showed up and fought the good fight, simply because it was the right thing to do, for all who walk a path through this journey of life, on the soil of the great country called, the United States of America.

The men and woman of our Armed Services sign up and become trained to help keep America great, they may not receive big money unlike those within the world of sports today, but these men and woman most definitely earned every penny they earn. The actions of our men and woman of the military goes without saying, as the actions of some of the men and woman within the world of sports………….. Well let’s just say, could be a bit more respectful for the ones who fought the good fight, so they can earn the big bucks, playing a game that they love. These men and woman of our Armed services just do not get enough respect for what they do, or have done, some go off away from their families for long stretches of time and some either don’t make it back, or come back back within a casket, or even worse……….. Missing parts of their bodies. While those within the world of sports cry over a hang nail, or whine over an official making a bad call, really!!! We of this Society are to blame for this, simply because we have lost our way along this journey and have mislabeled our priorities, from what we think is important, to what should be important.

We of this Society have changed so much compared to the Society back some 70+ years and a lot of ways, we have changed for the worse, taking big steps backwards, instead of moving forward, like those of our military’s past, present and future. The most political of all the wars……… Vietnam, these men and woman went and fought the good fight, even though they may not have agreed with the decisions of them being there, but yet still fought bravely, then they came back to American soil and are treated like low class citizens and some even being homeless, with no place to sleep or eat like those of us today within our homes, only shows just how screwed up we have become, while we live our lives today.

These men and woman of our military and how they get trained, are so disciplined, they think nothing of going to battle, so we can be free to roam and live our exotic lifestyles, we owe them a great deal of gratitude, but how do we pay them back? By some within the world of sports taking a knee, instead of standing tall and proud, showing great respect for them, as our countries National Anthem is being played before each sporting event. Those within the the world of sports just might not be playing for the big money that they get, if it wasn’t for these brave men and woman, these are the real Hero’s and not, the ones within the world of sports.

Respect is a two way street and there is no sign that reads ” one way” on any of the streets of Respect, those within our military don’t join to get our Respect, but with their actions they earn our Respect in many ways. While those within the world of sports think that they deserve our Respect, even without doing a dam thing, or worse, doing things that are just plain and simply stupid and uncalled for. Those within the world of sports think, that because they get paid big bucks, that they are better than the rest of us? They think that because of their big money, they can use their playing fields as a platform to Preach to the rest of us? I got a news flash for all you within the sports world, you are an employee of the game you play, just like the rest of us are an employee of the company for which we work our jobs. While you are an employee you have to abide by the rules and regulations of that company,  we all have to answer to somebody and there is no other way around it. Now you can have your opinion yes, we all have our opinions, but never forget that we all have the right to our opinions and no one can take that from us, no matter of who you are.

Those within the world of sports think that it is their right to go visit the President after they have won a championship in the sport they play? I have another news flash for you, going to visit the President is not your right, it is a privilege and an Honor, if you think other wise, then you need to rethink your way of thinking. Now you within the sports world may not like the President for whatever reason, just as many of us have our likes and dislikes, but to disrespect a sitting President, is just as bad as, disrespecting our men and woman of our armed services, as you take a knee, during the playing of this countries national Anthem, maybe we all within this country should boycott the sport you play, so you then lose that big paycheck, leaving you with no platform for which to speak? We all walk a path through this journey of life, when we walk it correctly without stepping upon another’s shine, this journey will reward us with great things, it will bring us each much respect even when we don’t go looking for it, but when we preach to other’s and demand their respect, now your looking at a journey that becomes very rough, that can bring much pain and hurt, for which will affect us all and keep us from enjoying true peace and happiness throughout the journey.

 

” America’s military are the real true Hero’s within this country and should have all our Respect for what they do for us”

” The water is calm compared to the day of 6/6/1944, but these men and woman of this day have earned our Respect now and forever”

” Sports and politics do not mix, now get back to playing the game that you get paid greatly to play”

” Those within our military may not get paid big money for what they do, but their actions get rewarded with our respect”

 

 

 

 

 

First the vine… then the fruit of the vine

 

 

” I am the true vine and my father is the grower of the vine”

Jn 15:1A

 

 

The vines are the true roots that form the foundation of us all, We all have a starting point, for which we learn from, as we move forward along our paths, of this journey of life. First one must plant a seed, so then the roots can grow and become strong, Then as the roots grow, they then branch out forming the fingers or vine, which then forms the fruit that makes the vines become like fine wine and become better and stronger moving forward along  this journey we walk,

From the very first roots and vines, you first need a tender of the crop, someone that nurtures and feeds them, so they can grow and bear the fruit of the vines. God is that one that over see’s all the vines, he feeds them with the rains, nurtures them with his love, helps them grow, so they can bear the fruit of his love, then once they learn from God our father, these vines can then branch off, while spreading the same process with all that is around them.

When the vines bear the fruits of God’s love, shows just how great we all are, it shows that with the fruit, then we ourselves can flourish and be as beautiful as the fruit. With strong roots to which we form the strong vines and as we totally believe in ourselves as well as our father, the God of all creation, there is nothing we can not do, there is nothing that will keep us from truly walking our paths within this journey, with the strength and confidence, that is already within us from the foundation of the roots, for which we started from.

We all get challenged from time to time, we all get tripped up and get stuck within these comfortable ruts, we get lost within the shadows of our doubt, so as we learn to fix what we need to fix, release the clouds that surround our judgments, truly believe in ourselves and God our father, we than can see just how strong our vines from the roots have become, then it is the perfect time to showcase just how beautiful the fruit of our vines truly are, when the fruits are in full bloom, this truly shows of just how strong our roots and vines have become. Without good strong roots, then our foundation becomes cracked and the vines may never flourish, leaving us with no fruit to showcase and we ourselves are lost within the clouds of our judgments.

The grass is not always as green as we think it should be, but when the grass is a nice dark vibrant green, we than can happily say that everything is good, our foundation is strong, our roots healthy and thick, our vines faithful and full of hope, as the fruits on the vines shine very bright and plentiful, leaving us with being in touch with our true selves moving forward, while we share our love within, with all those around us as well, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness that God created for us all.

 

” With all vines comes the bud that sprouts the fruit and the flowers showing the true beauty of the vine”

” When the roots are thick, they form a strong foundation for which to grow”

” The fruits of the vines become a beautiful flower that shines very bright to all that is around it”

” the green grass is only as green as we make it, when we stay true to ourselves and truly believe in ourselves as well as God our father”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That about sums it up……….

Slide 50 of 104: David Horsey/Tribune Content Agency

I saw this cartoon online and I just had to find the right words to truly go with it. The sad part of this cartoon is that the reality of it is, we the people are smack dab in the middle of all the corruption and the total abuse of power used every day throughout all the walls of Washington DC. Since the election of our new President Mr. Donald Trump, this so called special council and their investigation, has done nothing but totally waste all the Tax Payer’s money, it has proven if anything at all, of just how corrupt our so called leaders are and it also proves, of just how money hungry/ power hungry they are as well.

With all the corruption and back stabbing to name just a couple of things wrong within the walls of Washington DC, if we the people of this country, who pay our taxes to feed the corrupt filled walls, did just half of what they do, we then would be put behind bars for our actions, why then do they not only get away with it, but get away with looking us all in the eyes and completely lying to us as well.   Most of our Politicians today are what you call, ” Professional Liars”. These type of people have been telling lies so much that, they themselves can’t see the truth, if it was staring them in the face and slapping their face each and every time.

President Donald Trump has done so much more than previous President’s in his short time in office, just that not only those on the left within Washington DC, but the left bias media as well, simply will not admit to it, because it is not in their agenda to do so, instead they will try to come up with whatever they can, ( whether truth or not), in order to try to take down our sitting President. Plus a lot of them won’t even admit that he is even our President at all, simply because they are blinded by their lies and their fake agendas that they try to feed all of us within this country.

Within all the walls of Washington DC there is so much crap we never see going on, but with our new President and his use of social media, he is exposing all the corruption and hypocrisy within the walls, leaving those on the left in defensive mode, which they then can’t even see clearly through the clouds of their judgments, to not only do the right thing, but only have one thing on their minds to do and that is, to try to unseat our seated President, only because he is actually working for ” We the people”, which not only is the beginning of the Declaration of Independence, but it is also suppose to be their jobs as well, when they themselves got voted into the office for which they hold.

President Donald Trump is about to make a huge statement within the history of this great country, as he has the leaders of North and South Korea talking and shaking hands with each other, something other President’s have not done, but those on the left can’t even get out of the way of this history to even accept it. The time is now for we the people who pay our taxes and vote for these so called leaders, to wake up, see through all the lies, corruption and hypocrisy, so at the mid term elections, we than can bring real change to the walls within Washington DC and give our President Donald Trump the resources and the tools he needs, to complete his mission of, truly making America great once again.

 

” The real power is within the hands of we the people, time we use this power and end all the corruption and hypocrisy”

 

” Cartoons are a fictitious drawing with words, but they can also help us better understand true reality for which we live”

 

” The corruption and hypocrisy are so thick within the walls of Washington DC, it makes it hard very hard to see through to the real truth within those walls”

 

” Social media like all other things has it’s ups and downs, but when it is used properly it can bring truth, justice and responsibilities to all our realities”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

May the Lenten Journey bring us Peace

See the source image

” And when I am lifted up from the Earth, I will draw everyone to myself”.

*** John 12:32 ***

 

May the Lenten journey bring you closer to the Lord, may you totally feel his love that is deep within your heart and soul, for which you need not look any further than yourself. Then as you feel the love of God within you and become soothed by the warmth, then let us all spread this Love with each other, instead of this hatred, that is ripping us apart.

Love is in the air and no it is not a red heart with Cupid’s arrow going through it, it’s the true love from Jesus Christ to us all, who walk a path through this journey of life. Jesus came to us and sacrificed for us all, he taught us so many things and with his teachings came his true love for us all, no matter of who you were. The biggest thing Jesus showed us, was how too resist Temptation, as it is everywhere and will try to control who we truly are. This Temptation is just Satan trying to steer us away from Jesus, so he can bring hatred and ugliness, instead of the true beauty and love that Jesus brings.

Just as God our Father gave us his one and only son………… Jesus Christ. Maybe to one day? Jesus will bring to us his son, so we of this Society being so removed from his journey, can truly see and feel his love deep within our hearts and souls. We so truly need this. as just like the Society back then, there is way to much Temptation, hatred and ugliness, at every turn along our paths of this journey. With so many that have wandered away from the house of the Lord, I think it is time we revisit, see what has changed and what has stayed constant? Just maybe if we all make the trek back to the house of the Lord, we all can get back in touch with who we truly are, which is someone who is nothing but love, happiness and joy, with at no time has, any kind of hatred or ugliness. These are learned from somewhere and it is time to unlearn them, so we all can move forward, in the Peace of the Lord always and forever.

May the waterfall of this picture, cleanse us all and wash away our sins, so we than can move forward in Jesus Christ, truly feel his love deep within our hearts and souls, so we than can share this love with each other and not, this hatred or ugliness, that consumes us now. The good will always prevail, just we so need to have complete faith in, not just ourselves but in Jesus Christ as well, so we than can have the hope in all we do moving forward. If you look deeply into the water going over the falls, you can clearly see the strands of water, instead of just looking and seeing black….white……then black again. The white of the falls represents the paths of each of us, as all our sins, pain and suffering gets washed away, so we than can get back in touch with who we truly are, with zero distractions, as we walk this journey through life, in Peace and Happiness always.

 

” The journey of Lent isn’t just for Catholics or Christians, as Jesus Christ welcomes all to come to the journey”

” The Lenten journey is all about love, peace, sacrifice and a self examination of your inventory deep within”

” The love of Jesus Christ is within us all, time we all truly feel it and unleash it’s true power”

” Jesus is around us everywhere, we just have to see his signs and truly feel his love, then we can move forward with true strength always”

 

 

 

 

 

Never take anything for granted

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

A time within the history of this great Country that America is, a time in our past that we have long forgotten. Hello there!  We are two American Soldiers, who fought very hard for this country, so all that followed can live as freely as free can be within this country. We never asked for anything in return, we never looked at ourselves as Hero’s, we simply showed up and reported for duty, not just for the love of a country for which we lived, not even for anybody telling us so, but simply because it was something we felt deep within us to do. I know now in the place we are now, that it was a higher calling, that was calling us for duty, to help spread the love of God, to all those for which we have helped.

Now myself and my fellow Soldier may be laying here in complete solitude away from all that a society brings, but on the contrary………. Our bodies may be here, but our hearts and souls are in that better place, a place where we are looking down on all of you, for who we fought to protect and serve and let us just say this, ” we are not very happy for how you have completely forgotten about us” and that, you all have also taken completely for granted the soil for which you walk. The lack of Respect within your Society, would never fly within ours, as we all had each others back and no problem going to bat for each other, no matter what the reason.

It’s our bodies that get left behind, but our hearts and souls move into infinity, so the love deep within them can now truly come out and be shared with all of you. We sacrificed just as Jesus did for all so that the good will find you, then through the good we are able to walk our paths of this journey, not just better and stronger, but as free as free can be, while you share the love deep within your hearts and souls with all that are around you.

We all have a higher calling, just that in order to truly know of what it is, you first have to feel deeply within your heart and soul, then with that true feeling, you will then find your true purpose, as did myself and my fellow Soldiers, who fought so bravely for all who walk the soil of America. We didn’t know all throughout this country, we didn’t have to know everybody, we just did it cause it was the right thing to do, for ourselves and all throughout this great country of America.

There is no greater way to truly feel the warmth of God’s love deep within your heart and soul than to, really help those around you and do so, with love, conviction and empathy for those you reach out to, because when we do this, we than can truly be free, truly walk this journey with a purpose and as all throughout this Society, come together in unity, we all then can be in the peace and happiness, that we once had, when times were simpler and didn’t look to hurt each other with great pain. God gave us a soul so we can feel the warmth of his love throughout our bodies, he also gave us a heart, to pump the warmth throughout our bodies to not only spread this warmth within ourselves, but to spread it with all that comes before us, along our paths of this journey through life.

 

” Never take anything for granted, for you never know of just how much you may need whatever you have taken for granted”

” History is a very important class to pay attention in without falling asleep, as we all could learn more of any country, to understand better of what is happening around us”

” A Soldier is never a Hero as they are someone who steps in to the calling, so they can be the Jesus Christ of modern day, to sacrifice for the good of us all”

” We all have a higher calling, but first you have to truly feel deep within yourself, so you than can truly feel the higher power within you”

We of this Society have witnessed way too much ugliness, even more than Societies of the past, true other Societies have seen some ugliness, but the ugliness around us today, has pretty much taken on a life of it’s own. I mean seriously………….. All the mass shootings, the Terrorists wanting nothing more than to end all those who don’t share their warped and twisted so called lifestyles, then there are the children of the inner cities getting a hold of guns and turning them on anyone, just because they think it would be cool? You have the Parent’s of these children going around like their children are Angels and all other children are wrong? You send your children to school everyday so they can become smarter and live a life better than yourself, but instead the schools are a mess, between the Bully’s and the deranged ones wanting to hurt others around them, not only where are the Parents when their children need them most, but where are the Teachers, who not only are supposed to teach our children, but it is also their responsibility to keep the children’s safe from all harm and most importantly, the Parents actually trust these Individuals to keep their children safe, during their duration of the school day.

Natural disasters like Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Tornadoes etc….. These are going to happen and worry us greatly, but having to worry about all the other ugliness around us today, no wonder why we are a broken Society today.   Most of all the ugliness around us today is the responsibility of we the People of this Society and we are not doing a good enough job in eliminating this ugliness. We vote for these so called leaders to lead us in this Society, so we can all be better and stronger moving forward, but instead these so called leaders say what we want to hear, then stab us in the back when they get voted in and proceed to do what they want to only benefit themselves. They make these Bills that turn into law only to help a certain few and the rest of us are left to fend for ourselves and struggle greatly, work hard, while some get everything handed to them on a silver platter? You want real equality……….. It has nothing to do with how much money you have, or what color you are, or even what sex you are, we are all Humans on this Earth, walking a path through this journey of life and we all need to smell the sweet smell of reality, instead of simply dreaming and sponging off of others.

These so called ” Dreamers” who walk into a country and think they can sponge off the people of that country, need to seriously get a life and try working as the rest of us do everyday. Your dreams will never come true if at first, you don’t put in the work and simply help yourself achieve your dreams. Let’s take the American Dream for instance, you think you can just lay there and ” Poof”, your dreams are there in front of you when you awaken? I got a news flash for you…………. it don’t happen that way, you first have to work hard, so then your dreams can become reality. In this Society for some reason, we have become afraid of working hard and even the thought of work, not only scares the hell out of some, but it sickens them to the point they can’t even get out of bed to work. The video game craze has made us become anti social, as we sit in front of a computer, instead of going out and becoming social with those around us, because of this we have become very scared of face to face interactions with anybody, but put us in front of a PC and suddenly we now become very active with our voice and in most cases, we say the wrong things cause there is no true interaction going on at all.

There is a simple solution to all this ugliness, but first we as a Society have to come together in unity, then the solution will be right there in front of us, especially when we not only have complete faith in Jesus Christ, but we also have complete faith in ourselves. With the complete faith in Jesus and ourselves, then there is always hope for a bright future, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Also when we dig down deep within our hearts and souls, then we can truly feel the love and empathy within us, which will then aid all of us moving forward, as we then battle all the ugliness and defeat it, once and for all. The ugliness is only a product of just how divided we have become, leading us into this broken Society, if we only felt deeply of the love and empathy within us, then all the ugliness will disappear from all our paths through this journey of life, so we all can be at peace and happiness, while we all work hard at making our dreams become our reality.

 

” A dream is something we make up while we sleep and is greatly different from what reality truly is”

” Sometimes a dream can become a reality, but first you need to work hard to make it that reality”

” Some may try to steer us in the direction that we feel uncomfortable, which is why we need complete faith in Jesus and ourselves to overcome and go in our own direction”

” We are all equal to each other as Humans walking a path no matter of who you are, which is why we should never let money, color or sex determine our equality”

February 14, 2018…………. A day for each of us to truly look and feel deeply within ourselves, as first beyond anything, this being Ash Wednesday,  where we go before the Alter of God and receive the Ashes put onto our forehead, by the Priest, in the way of the cross. Then there is What we call Valentine’s day, a day full of the color red, as the roses and the chocolates get passed between us, both the Lenten journey and Valentines are special and unique to each other, just as we are special and unique to each other as well, the common denominator between the two is, Love.

With Valentines there is Love in the air, with the beginning of Lent there is Love deep within our souls, that totally and truly needs to come out and be shared. Now within this Society we don’t think about the Lenten journey being the journey within the journey, as a matter of fact if you asked one hundred people, they would say today is Valentines day, without even giving the Ashes of the Lenten journey a thought. Valentines day has become way too commercialized just like Christmas, as all the television commercials and the stores want us to believe, with the Ashes of the Lenten journey not even given a thought, or worse not even giving the respect and dignity it so deserves.

In some cases………. definitely not all, the love on Valentines day is superficial and fake, while the love within the Ashes of the Lenten journey is, within us all deep in our hearts and souls, the love of the Lenten journey is real, all we need to do is, open our hearts to Jesus Christ, so we than can truly feel his love for us and then share this love with each other.

When we completely open our hearts to Jesus Christ, there then comes an explosion of feelings to us, now we may not be used to this and try to set these feelings aside? But these feelings are real and they will never go away, no matter how deeply we try to suppress them, no matter how much we try not to acknowledge them and when we don’t acknowledge or suppress these feelings, will only have us become someone we truly are not, as you can see by all the crap we see around us today.

If we only put the Ashes of the Lenten journey first and the day of Valentines second, then just maybe we could celebrate Valentines a little different, as instead of the arrow from Cupid giving us this superficial love, we than can rip open our hearts to Jesus and truly feel the love he gives us within our hearts and souls, so we then can share this love with each other, for each of us to help make this World a better place for us all.

The Ashes of the Lenten journey and the the day of Valentines are two totally different Worlds, but if we truly bring them together, more importantly bring the love of the two together, just maybe each one of us can get back to, truly feeling the love of Jesus Christ deep within our hearts and souls. The love of Jesus Christ to us all is as deep as it gets, Jesus will never look away at anybody and love us all just as equal from one to another, unlike we the people of this society to one another. When we rip open our hearts to Jesus, totally feel the warmth of his love deep within us, then there will never be anything superficial that will come between us, so we than can come together in unity and walk our paths of this journey through life, in the Peace and happiness that we all so deserve.

 

” The 40 day journey of Lent, is the journey within the journey, to the true peace and happiness of the path of righteousness”

” Jesus showed us how to walk this 40 day journey, now is the time we show him we were listening and watching”

” The deeper you reach within your heart and soul, the warmer you find the love of Jesus and the more you want to share with those around you”

” Valentines we celebrate one day a year, but the love from the Ashes of the Lenten journey, we should celebrate everyday throughout this journey of life”
