Even a Sinner can Rejoice

” (Jesus) said to him, “follow me”

JN 21:19b

With these two pictures of the rocky beaches, yes they are both full of their own beauty, but the one thing in similarity is, the rocky beach. Not your typical soft sandy beach that you can walk upon with your bare feet, as you need protection on your feet to walk these beaches, but none the less, they are beaches that highlight the true beauty of mother nature and Jesus Christ, who is within us all. There is nobody here who walks this journey, who has not sinned and who will sin further upon this journey. Peter who denied Jesus three times, who Jesus saught out and asked him to feed his sheep. No matter who you are, no matter how much or how little you have sinned, Jesus will always forgive you of your sin, so you in turn be the Fisher of Men, like he himself along his journey here with us, so as Jesus will turn ton you, like Peter, and ask you to follow him, as you then feel his warmth, deep within your heart and soul.

We all walk our paths in this society lately, like nothing will ever affect me? We walk with reckless abandon and then wonder why it happened to me? we Bully one another, we bring pain and hurt to one another, even if we know nothing of what we did? We just keep moving like we are the only ones who are moving? We have lost the empathy and compassion for one another, Which now has us spinning out of control. Jesus is always calling us to come walk with him. but if we keep with the way we are going, we will never hear him in time, we will never truly feel his forgivness, as he will forgive us all from all of what we sinned? Jesus died on the cross for each and every one of us, no matter of who you are. It is sad that we in this society and the actions we take everyday, is how we pay back Jesus, as he perished with nothing but love foe each and every one, who have walked through their paths of this journey through life. Very true that there is no one here along this journey who have not sinned, so why have so many walked away from the house of Jesus, where they can go and escape the chains of Satan, who is trying real hard, to keep us within the dark cold that covers us today.

Now I get the fact that we all choose our paths of this journey, I get the fact that we all find our own way to survive through this journey, but I can not wrap my head around why, we will go to such great lengths to destroy each other within this society, I don’t get the fact of why we will attack one another, Bully one another just to look more powerful than each other? This is not of who we truly are, this is not what Jesus taught us, when he came and walked this journey here with us, so why with our actions, do we hurt each other with real pain, instead of loving one another, so we all can walk this journey within the love and peace of Jesus Christ, our savior who sacrificed and died for each and every one of us. This power, control and greed that has encompassed us all, and keeps the dark clouds of Satan hovering over our heads today, is totally the responsibility of each of us, we the people and they we treat each other is the bottom line of all our troubles, and we the people when we change our ways correctly, can put an end to all this ugliness and hatred, so it’s time to step back into the house of the Lord, so we can truly ask for God’s forgivness, get back to truly of who we are, and get back to the path of righteousness, so we all can be within the peace and love of Jesus Christ, There is none of us who have not sinned, time to except this fact, so we all can truly follow Jesus to the path of righteousness, with his trust and faith, as there will always be great hope moving forward throughout this journey of life.

Yes these rocky beaches will be tough to walk in bare feet, but when we trust with faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, then the hope will be there for us all, to walk these beaches, as easy as it is to walk the soft sandy beaches, that we walk along the shorlines of the oceans. The views from these rocky beaches are just as good, if not better than those other beaches, and when we ask Jesus to forgive us of our sins, and not think in our own minds that, we are perfect and never sin, now everywhere we go, we will be met with great views, no matter of where we are. All the evil that we see now, will be met head on, with the faith of Jesus Christ, which will over ride all the evil, the faith if Jesus Christ, will strengthen the faith in ourselves, so we all can move forward with hope and positive vibes, instead of the negative and bitter vibes we see now. The rocky beach has a beauty all of it’s own, just like we are all unique to each other. You walk a rocky beach one day, go back the next and some of what you saw is not there? That’s because change took place before you, just like change takes place everyday all around us, and when you do not except the change, is where you now get left behind, instead of moving forward in harmony. Yes there may be alot of components to this journey through life, but when you walk with the faith in yourself and Jesus Christ, there will always be the hope that, the journey will not be very hard at all. It is our actions we take that makes this journey harder than it really needs to be. We only walk this journey once, so why not walk it correctly, before the journey comes to a close for each and everyone of us, so we all can be within the peace and love, insted of the ugliness and hatred.

” The ugliness and hatred in this society now, takes more work than the love and the peace that is already within us all, which also is not of who we truly are in the eyes of Jesus Christ”

” We all want success as we walk our paths, but is it really success as we deepen our sins within ourselves, bringing more pain and hurt to each other also”

” With all the failed leadership and all our negative actions toward one another, is why we the people are within this ugliness and hatred around us, time for real change, so we all can be within the peace and love of Jesus Christ”

The Fires of Hell

” There is this spiritual fire that burns within us all and when used the wrong way, the flames will burn us all into destruction”

We the people within this broken society, are so arrogant to everything around us, that we turn a blind eye toward true reality. We all have this notion that we ourselves are correct and everybody/everything else is wrong, then we turn the cheek and never fix ourselves as broken as we are. In order to have a broken society, you need broken components inside that society, and what are the main components within a society? You guessed it, we the people that walk a path through this journey of life. Sometimes we live by the saying of, ” if it is not broken, then don’t fix it”? Well in order to keep things in good working order, you then need some preventitive maintenence, without this maintenence, things will break down and when you do not address them, now you have everything around you crumbling right before your eyes.

Within this society with the Dictators, the weak and failed leadership, those who seek nothing but all the power, control and the greed, makes for a society that is smack in the middle of total destruction. It is not to late to guard against this, but if we the people do not act soon, then what we have known throughout this journey will cease to exist and we the people can only blame ourselves and no one more. When you look back in the history of Mankind, yes there can be some ficticious stuff out there, which makes it even more important to really research everything before you pass judgment, but throughout the history and the creation of man, and when God created woman from the ribs of man, God did so as his vision was to keep all his creation going for an unlimited amount of time, but since the time of Adam and Eve and when eve ate the forbidden fruit (the apple), this is when all the good now had an enemy in evil, and have been fighting for the power, control and the greed since.

Those people within the middle east are peace loving people, but certain ones around them have been fighting for thousands and thousands of years, Then back in the days before Jesus walked this journey with us, you had the kings, who thought everything belonged to them and we the people were the pawns to use, to keep all that he wanted. Those kings now are called Dictators , like Putin in Russia, like Hussain who died in Iraq, like the Communist Regime in China, and with all that is happening within this society, we are seeing all the destruction right before our eyes, so the poor can be poorer, and the rich get richer, this has been going on throughout the history of Mankind, just that now you have a very corrupt media, that is exploiting everything, so they can become the rich, that will have all the control over everything. Here in America we have the Democratic party, for who I have been saying for years now, that they are so far in denial, they have lost sight of reality. Okay I know there may be some good ones within that party, but they are too afraid to speak out against the party, for they may become the black sheep of the party. Right now we are all the sheep of those who seek all the power, control and greed, we are the pawns on the chess board of life, so the rich elite can get richer and control us further along this journey of life.

Russia has tried to gain control of Ukraine many times in the past and Ukraine has always defeated the efforts of Russia, even through the days of the old USSR, what makes Putin’s Russia any different? Okay what is the USSR you ask? The United Soviet Socialist Republic, for those to arrogant to open their eyes to reality. President Reagan stood up to the leader of the USSR, who at the time was Mikhail Gorbachev and told him to tear down that wall, well…. soon after the USSR became just Russia, but now the Dictator Putin wants to bring that back, control all of Ukraines resources, then become the leader of the world? I have no doubt Ukraine will do it once again, but if we the people of the world would not be so weak ( especially the leaders) and grow a spine, then maybe all this ugliness would end sooner than later, with less innocent people dieing. Now very true that the game changer in all this is that little red button that Putin has in his hand and countries like Iran are trying to achieve, but if we the people unite together, bringing real strength in numbers, the people of Russia, the people of China, the people of America, the people of the Middle East etc, then all the fake and weak leadership will cease to exist, as now the good triumps over Evil, so all the ugliness and corruption goes away, leaving the peace and serenity of Jesus Christ all around us.

Jesus Christ came here to teach us, to share his love for us, so we can learn and share our love with each other, but being so far removed from those days, no wonder why the evil of Satan is trying to force us all over to the dark side, away from any and all the good. In order to try to escape the Fires of Hell, you first need to walk through the fires, but when you show fear, then you will never walk through the fires and forever you will be enshrined within the gates that hold all the sheep together. Right now the powers to be want everything and will do anything they can to get it, they are exploiting this war on Ukraine from Russia, very much like Vietnam and with the help of the media, they are spinning it very political as well. Everything is being spun political these days, like the Womans swimming accepting a biological man into their sport and winning? I am sorry, but this just is not right. Now if a man wants to become a woman, that is fine, but do it without shoving it down the throats of the rest of us. I have zero issues with anyone not knowing of who they truly are, but when you shove it in my face, that is where I draw the line in the sand and this is where we all should draw the line in the sand as well, as we stand together in unity, walking our paths through this journey of life.

We all walk this journey through life, we all have our own issues that will stop us in our tracks as well. These issues can and will control who we are, they will force us into the hands of denial, and these hands are strong, as it takes very hard work to escape from. but when you put in the work, the reward is very much worth it, as now you can be free away from the hands of denial, to truly be, who you truly are. There is so much pain and hurt from the hands of denial we bury all our true feelings and emotions so deep within, it is like they do not exist anymore, which now we portray this fake self toward others, to make it look like we are normal? Then with all the weak and failed leadership around us, the ones who seek these troubled times, so they can exploit their sick and twisted ways upon us all, shows that through all the evidence, we are within a very broken society, with a very dark cloud hovering over all our heads, keeping us within this darkness, so we can not see any light of Salvation anywhere in fr9nt of us.

” When you put in the hard work, the reward is very much worth it, as now you can be free from the strong hands of denial, to be truly of who you are”

” the darkness of evil will come from time to time, but when you exploit it and not fight it, then you will never see the light of salvation at the end of the darkness”

The true miracle is within us

” There was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there, Jesus and the Disciples were invited to the wedding. When the wine ran short, the mother of Jesus said to him, ” They have no wine ” “.

JN 2:1-3

As yet another Christmas is in our rear view mirror, let us never forget the one gift that is always within us, no matter what time of year it is, and that is the love of Jesus that warms our hearts, so we can walk in his peace and joy along our paths of this journey through life. One of the first miracles Jesus brought forth, was when the Servers filled the containers with water and he turned the water to wine, so all could celebrate of the two coming together as one. Weddings today clearly, does not mean the same as they once did, the vows that a bride and groom say to one another, simply are not what they once were, as they do not take the vows as being sacred anymore. A marrige is between a man and a woman, but in todays society, all bets are off to who is actually the bride and who is the groom? Not too mention the fact that some do not know if they are a man or a woman, but let’s not get too deep into this one just yet. I get the fact that maybe some actually like others of the same, but let’s be real here, what you do behind a closed door, or in private from others, is for you and whoever you are with, it is when you force it upon others, where the problem within this society then lies. Then when that man and woman have children from the product of their love for one another, this is how this world continues from one society to another, the fact that more of the same are coming together and leaving the children out of it, only burdens the world from moving forward better and stronger in the future. Jesus showed us many miracles as he walked his path here with us, but without his faith, or the faith in yourself, you will never see any miracle, no matter what path you take through this journey of life.

The true miracles of this journey will come to each of us, but first we need the faith in ourselves as well as in Jesus Christ, which will give us great hope, for whatever the miracle is, that will come before us. There are many different miracles, but without the faith, we will never see any miracles at all, Jesus cured the sick, fed the hungry, all with only the clothes on his back and the faith in his father, the God of us all, he showed us that with the faith, then there is no miracle that will ever pass us by, as they give us much hope moving forward. Jesus turned the water at the wedding into wine, he also turned a body of water into blood, showing that as the water flows around us, so does his love flow within us and warm our hearts with his love, so now we can share that love with each other. But if we do not take sacred the vows, then everything around us will crumble, as our hearts go cold, with everything around becoming a wastland of, what if’s and no action.

While you are looking at the stream, don’t just look with the eyes of, disbelief and no faith, because the stream keeps flowing for all the other living things that depend on it. The stream is not selfish and the stream is always there for whatever is around it, it is we the people that become selfish and lose the faith in our empathy for one another, leaving us all deep within the dark clouds of Satan. While the dark clouds hover over us all, there is no love, and when we do use this word, we throw it around like, giving out candy at Halloween. The love of Jesus is as sacred as the vows at the wedding, and without it, leaves us all in disarray, with zero respect of one another, and our integrity gets left out in the cold. We need to bring back what the wedding once was, cause without it, we then walk our paths with no purpose, and with no vows to guide us in the new life, we then become so much in disarray, that now we lose the direction of where we are going and away from the path of righteousness, which has us even deeper in the darkness, away from the light of salvation.

The stream never loses it’s faith, as it flows freely around all the obstacles, and with that faith, it will always have the hope of reaching it’s goal of, being one with the body of water that is below. This is what the sacred words of the vows at the wedding will do for us as well, it will bond us together as one, so now we can be better and stronger, as we walk this journey together, no matter what path you chose. We become bonded together from the love of Jesus within our hearts, and as we feel the warmth of the love within us, we now are blessed with the fruits of that love, as we bring up our children, from that love. There are so many broken homes today, homes where the vows have been broken, leaving the children with all the pain and hurt? When a man and a woman break their vows and go their separate ways, very seldom do they think of the children, and only think of themselves and who will get the house? They also keep moving the children around from place to place between them, and never let the children then set their roots properly to move forward better and stronger, plus we all have a child deep within us, and when that child isn’t nourished properly, it then will not grow properly, leaving the child on the outside not growing properly as well, and with a society full of childish children, now you have a broken society, deep within the dark clouds, full of ugliness and chaos.

Truly believing in the miracle, is having the faith in yourself as well as Jesus Christ, so now, you keep alive the hope, which is also the miracle that will come at no particular time. I get that we all want to put away the Christmas decorations? But way too much as we put away the decorations, we then put away the true meaning of Christmas, as we go the rest of the year without it, til Christmas seasons comes back once again. We have let Christmas become so commercialized, that now we become deep in stress, when we can’t get that perfect gift? We lose that true meaning and the true feeling that Christmas is, we will never walk this journey as Jesus did, if we can not truly feel the warmth of his love, which is the true meaning of Christmas, and without the true meaning, we will never know how to truly feel his warmth,, as we never feel the warmth of his love, it then leaves us all with no faith as the hope then goes away from being in front of us, no matter what direction you walk? When our hearts go cold, the dark clouds get thicker, just as when the clouds thin out, then the light of salvation clears the paths, so we can look deeply into what we see. Jesus came to us, showing us how to walk our paths of this journey, he taught us many things, as he brought the power of the miracles, to prove to us all that, with the true faith and belief, then there will always be hope, for the real miracle that may come to us all. It’s the miracles that keep us going as we move forward, as we truly stay to who we are, feeling the warmth of the love of Jesus within us, so we can always move forward to be better and stronger, while we walk our paths, throughout this journey of life.

” When we look deeply into all the bodies of water, then we will see all the miracles that we then believe with faith, for the hope as we move forward along the journey”

Sometimes what you see, is not what you truly see

” The water I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life……My peace I give to you”

John 4:14, 14:27

” Therefore we do not lose heart………For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal”

Corinthians 4:16, 18

Life is full of uncertainty, trials, tribulations, and things that you may never see with the naked eyes, Just because you do not see something, does not mean that it is not there, or never was there, there are some things in life you will never see, but you can and will feel it within your heart and soul. Like Love for instance, this is a feeling within the heart that you will never see, but you will feel it’s warmth deep within your heart, as it flows through your veins, like the blood of Jesus Christ. Now within todays society, we throw this word around like candy, OH!!! I love that car, or I Love that jacket? these things you may like, but Love? You will never see anything to do with this word, but you will truly feel it deep within yourself, then as you feel it, you can share it with those around, with the actions you take moving forward.

The morning light coming over the mountains, yes I can see this, but what you can not see is, all the living things that are waking up to that light. There is so much out there that you do not see, but that does not mean they are not there? The birds singing there morning songs, true you may see some, but you will never see them all, The night Owls that are getting ready for bed as the light shines, the Deer and other animals waking out of their night’s sleep, The different sounds within mother nature, as you shift from the night sky, to the daylight, Just because you do not see something, does not mean it does not exist, just as ones perception may differ from another. There is so much out there that you will nnever see, so if you are never in tune with what is around you, then you will totally miss out on so much within this journey of life.

Mother Nature has so much to offer us, most of her beauty you may never see, but when you visit her and stay in tune with her, you will feel and hear so much more. You look out at the mountains and see the light of day coming up over them, then as you really focus and get in tune with the moment, you then will hear her whispering ” Good morning”. Then as you hear the whispers, you then feel the presence of everything around you. The true beauty is out there, these sights, sounds and feelings, you will never experience within any city, which is why we all need to step out of our comfort zones from time to time, so we can truly see what this journey has to offer, I get that in life we will have things come to us that will hurt us deeply, and we will feel real pain from the hurt, then we shelter in place to try to hide from what hurt us, I get why we shelter in place to ease the pain from the hurt, but what we do not see in the long term, is the fact that, we then have stopped moving forward, and are not truly seeing or feeling all the true beauty that is around us. Yes it is very hard to escape the pain, and sometimes it will take more pain to heal properly from what hurt you in the first place, but the pain should never stop you from moving forward, it should never stop you from truly feeling your true feelings and emotions, and it should never turn you into someone for who you truly are not. There are too many out there today hurting from the real pain and it shows throughout this society, there are so many who are in need of healing, so they can get back in touch with their true selves, This is what mother nature does, just that you need to take the steps to get out there, take the steps out of your comfort zones, yes there may be more pain with those steps, but if done correctly and in the right way, is the true way to escape the hurt and the pain that has caused you to stop moving forward throughout this journey of life. We will experience some pain and hurt throughout this journey, some maybe more than others, but we all go through it to some degree, it is the way we heal from the pain, that is really the way we keep moving forward in a positive way, instead of a negative way, so now we do not infect others with our pains, or just simply, hide in plain sight of one another. The hurt is real, the pain is real, but if we never address either, we then will never heal properly from what pains us so.

The quiet calm within mother nature has so much to tell us, but only if we truly listen to what she has to say. The stillness of the water, even as the fish swim beneath, sometimes you may hear nothing on the outside, but when you focus and listen with your heart, this is when you truly hear the beautiful sounds that mother nature brings to you. Yes it is true of the calm before the storm, and mother nature will show her anger from time to time, just like we are silent before we blow with anger, but that never makes us any less of, it only means we are human and you feel real pain, you feel true feelings and emotions, then after the anger comes tears, which cleanse us through the healing process, it is when the tears do not come, that should tell you the healing has not come. In this society we are afraid to cry, as some will then look at us as weak, this is so not true, as when you show emotion and tears, means you are strong and in touch with your true feelings and emotions. With all the hatred, the ugliness and the chaos in this society, shows that beyond anything, there are way too many out there, that are hiding in plain sight, burying all their true feelings and emotions so deep, it is like they are not even there anymore, We all need to heal from what ails us, so we can all experience the quiet calm, that Jesus showed us as he walked his path of this journey here with us.

The quiet calm within mother nature can only be felt as you journey into her world, and yes you can bring this calm with you into a society of many, but if those within the society can not truly feel the calm, then they will never truly experience the quiet calm. The stillness of the water, as you listen to the crisp noise of the oar passing through the water from your paddling, then as you stop paddling, what do you hear? Shhhh!!! Really listen to what you see, sometimes you may not hear anything, but when you don’t feel anything either, then your not truly listening with your heart. This planet is always moving, yes you may not even notice it, but when your in tune with what is around you, then you will feel that the earth is moving, just by looking deeply into what you see. You look up into the clouds, they seem at first glance they are moving, are they really? It is not the clouds moving, it is the earth moving beneath your feet. and when your in tune with that, then you can actually feel it within your heart. The trees so calm that you sit very still in your kayak within the water when your not paddling, the same trees that are silent and calm, are very much alive like you and me, just that they to want to experience the quiet calm from time to time. Mother Nature has so much beauty within her, but the only way to experience it is, step out of your comfort zone, step outside within her, so she can help heal what brings you the pain and hurt, as you then get in touch with your true feelings and emotions, so you than can experience the quiet calm and the beauty she holds for us all. As you become in tune with your true feelngs and emotions, let the tears flow, for they will help you heal and make you stronger moving forward, For when you heal properly and when you keep moving forward, mother nature will let the pain and hurt simply melt from your shoulders, as now you will see clearly through the clouds, step out of the darkness, to see the light of salvation, that will bring you the quiet calm, that will bring you peace and joy, to see all the beauty that is around you, and through the beauty the ugliness will then disappear from all around you. The uncertainties, the trials and the tribulations, all come from each of us, as we bring them to one another, it is when we do not heal properly from them, that the ugliness then grips us hard and brings us into the darkness, which then has us not truly feel anything, so we bury our true feelings and emotions deep within. This journey through life will throw us many curve balls, but if we never step up to the plate, then we will never hit them out of the park, we will never truly feel any kind of feeling, and we will never experience any kind of quiet calm, that will help us heal in the proper way, to whatever ails us. The quiet calm within mother nature, really comes from deep within, so if you never truly feel anything within the heart, then you will never experience the quiet calm, at any point of your path, throughout this journey of life.

” There is a quiet calm within us all and if we never truly heal properly, or never truly feel anything with the heart, then we will never get to that place of quiet calm, that will have us see all the beauty no matter where we look”

” Mother nature will at times unleash her fury, but she will always show her true beauty for us all to feel and see, when we heal and look deeply into what we see, to feel deeply within the heart everything around us”

With Peace comes Joy

” Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth Peace”

Luke 2:14

” Bless the Lord, who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases”

Psalms 103:2-3

May the Peace of Jesus Christ be with you all, as we enter into another Christmas season and the birth of Jesus. With this Peace comes true joy and happiness, that in today’s society we have totally forgotten all about. Right now we are all consumed in this corrupt, ugly world of today, and have let the clouds of our judgments control who we truly are. To some it is all about the Power, Control and the Greed, while the rest of us want to totally get away from those Peaople, but with all that is going on, it then becomes very difficult to escape away from it all. This is where we all need to dig really deep within, get back in touch with our true selves, get back in touch with our true feelings and emotions, let the blood of Jesus flow freely through our hearts and souls, so our hearts once again become warmed with his love and away from the cold of Satan’s hatred that is around us now. It is all about having Faith in yourself, as well as with Jesus Christ, but in this crazy world, we have totally walked away from Jesus, which in a sense, we have walked away from ourselves and have stopped moving forward, to be better and stronger with each step.

These pictures today are of two very different water sources, one being still and calm, full of peace all around it, the other is moving swiftly along it’s path, but what we forget is, all water sources are moving just that some more graceful then the other. You need to move forward with confidence in order to be still with style, grace and peacefulness, As you move forward with confidence, you then cut your way through the path you chose, so with the faith in yourself and Jesus Christ, you then get to the calmness that Jesus showed us, when he came and walked his path here with us. This calmness is within us all, just that through all the clouds of our judgments, we can not truly see the light of th path of righteousness, right there in front of us.

The stream flows along it’s path with confidence, as it flows over and around all the obstacles. The stream has no worries as it flows freely, it does not care of what is around it, as it simply flows in and around anything, so it can get to that bigger pool of it’s destination, which will bring the peace and the serenity of the calmness below. Everything on this planet has a purpose through this journey, but if you never find that purpose, you then, will never walk with the true confidence, and find that true peace and serenity as you become forever engulfed within the clouds and the ugliness that this society will bring.

May we all flow freely as the the stream flows down and into the lake below, Yes we like the stream will have many obstacles to overcome, but when we stay focused and not let the ugliness cloud our judgments, we like the stream will flow with confidence in anything we set out to do. Right now we are the streams of the world, just that we are getting overwhelmed with all that is around us to the point that. we are struggling to get around the obstacles, of which now we have stopped moving forward and are laying in wake, trying to find a way around what is in front of us. The problem is, while we lay in wake, we then get caught up in the comfortable ruts and forget that, there is so much more to this journey, so we can finish the journey as strong a we can, within the peace and joy that it will bring us all.

Throughout this journey of life, we worry so much along the way, that we forget to walk step by step, instead we let what is going on around us dictate to the direction and the way we walk our paths of this journey, when if only we do what comes natural, we will find that this journey will flow as freely as, the stream flows down the montainside. Then there are the factors that some will try to disrupt us in many ways, sometimes these ways will strip us of who we are, we then become lost on our paths, so we then become a follower, instead of being a Shepard, that will help bring out the true leader that we can be. We all have these leadership qualities within us, just that we lose the trust and faith in ourselves, so we bury these qualities so deep within, that we forget that they are there. Jesus Christ had this quiet way of leading us to the promised land. but unfortunatly within this society, we think we do not need him today? Thats were we have gone wrong in this society, as in order to move forward in confidence, we need the faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, so we than can have any hope moving forward along our paths of this journey.

Jesus parted the the waters to lead others away from temptation and into the promise land, he also has turned water into his blood, so others can drink this blood, so we can feel his love run through our heart and veins. Jesus did so much for us, but now we repay him by, stepping away from him, thinking that we need no one, just ourselves within this crazy world. How is that working out for you? I thought so, a man with no faith, has no hope, and without these two, you now have no confidence to keep moving forward along your path, which keeps you from being better and stronger throughout this journey of life. You can only travel so long within the clouds, for sooner or later, you will lose sight of your path, as now the journey stops, as now even worse, you stop moving forward, which then has you lose all that Jesus brought to us, when he came and walked his jouney here with us.

They say there is a light at the end of the tunnel? But when you are so deep within the clouds, you will never see any light, let alone, flowing through this journey as freely as the stream down the mountainside. A big part of walking this journey is, there will be times of sickness, but if you never take care of yourself, keep your body as healthy as it can be, then these sicknesses will grab you and never let go and when that happens……Well I don’t want to tell you, as you can figure it out for yourself, but I know you already can figure this out? As we walk through this journey, we are similiar to the journey of the stream, just as the stream starts as a trickle, and ends with it’s plunge into a lake below, our journey is much the same, as we all start out the same, finish the same, just the our paths within the middle differ so much different, Some may become blocked from moving forward, as the stream becomes blocked from what has fallen into it, but if you never find your way around the obstacle, then you will simply stop walking forward and in some cases, start moving backwards away away from truly finding your purpose, within this journey that we walk our paths within. Life is too short to become consumed with all the ugliness and chaos it holds, time to get back to Jesus Christ, get back to who we truly are, let the blood of Jesus warm your heart and soul, as we truly feel his love, then share that love with each other, as we find our purpose, let our true selves shine brighter than any star, overcome any obstacle that may be in front of us, so we get to that path of righteousness that Jesus showed us, to see the true light of salvation in front of us, so we than can move forward into the true peace and joy that this journey will bring for us all and when we not only keep to the faith in ourselves, but the faith in Jesus, so we than can keep all hope front and center, right in front of us as well.

” Let the stream within flow freely as we stay true to who we are, feeling all our true feelings and emotions”

” You never need to flip a switch to turn on the lights, especially the light of salvation within, that lights up your soul, to see clearly your path, through this journey of life”

Walk with Faith, to see the Hope

” Simon Peter answered him, Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of Eternal Life”

Jn 6:68

With these words within the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, some may not truly understand, so they will turn away and give up on following Jesus Christ. This quote from the Gospel, couldn’t be truer of the way we are within this society. We all in one way or another, have walked away from something, we give up on working through something because it is the easy way out. Take marriages for instance, gone are the days of 40+ years together, only because, nobody wants to work together to get thru the tough times, so we think the grass will be greener with another at our side? In some cases, the marriage gets off on the wrong foot, as some will become someone they are not just to land what they say is the ” big catch”? If your basing a marriage on this philosophy, then you will be doomed from the very beginning. When you are not true to who you are at the beginning, then how do you expect for anyone to truly know the real you? Life is not about portraying some fake portion, or maybe someone that you yourself does not even know, because when you do this, then you are dividing yourself, from all others around you.

Then as we walk our paths of this journey, there will be many life events that will come to us, yes these events will control us if we let them. Some of these events will be brought on by ourselves and our actions, as other events will come from those around us. No matter how the event may come, when the going gets rough, we walk away to try to escape it, instead of facing it head on and working through our troubles, which will actually make us better and stronger moving forward. Jesus talks about his body and blood to his followers, he then passes around a bread loaf for each to rip off a piece, for his last supper, then passes around the red wine as his blood, for all to drink. When we eat this bread and drink this wine, we are acknowleding Jesus within our hearts and souls, as he then gives us eternal life within the world of his peace. It is when we do not keep to this faith, that any hope for our future, diminishes from our paths. Right now within this society, too many have lost this faith, as we see all the chaos and ugliness around us. Many have walked away from Jesus Christ, as they think they can do better as they walk this journey through life? Some may go to the house of the Lord on Sunday’s, then as they leave after service, will forget what was said and return to their own ways? But will say they believe? To truly believe in Jesus Christ, is believing with your mind, body and soul, listening to the words in the Gospel and implementing them within your current life, not forgeting what was said, then trying to move forward with your own version? Jesus was not about taking over the world, or killing others, this is totally on we the people, and with all the ugliness around us, we can clearly see, just how many have walked away and gave up on Jesus, taking the easy way out, instead of staying in the fight and working through the hard times, so we than can be within the peace and love of Jesus Christ.

To some within this society, it is all about me, me, me, they think that Jesus never exsisted and no matter right or wrong, their way is the only way? This is exactly the kind of attitude that is affecting us all as we walk our paths of this journey. With this attitude or Ideaology, we are on a path of division and destruction, unless we change our ways and attitudes, then one day there will be nothing left for further societies to come. We are our own worst enemy, we will walk away from anything that gives us troubles and find the easy way, as we have become too lazy, to work for anything that is worth it for our future. Yes, there are some that will try to push their ways on to us, they will Bully us into taking our control away from us, so they can only seem as powerful as they are? Those who are being Bullied, then walk away, instead of standing up to the Bully, because at the time it seems like the easy way out, but in reality, we are furthering the agenda of the Bully. We all have been bullied at some point along our paths, it is how we deal with these times and not walk away, that determines of how we move forward, better and stronger throughout this journey we walk.

Walking away from anything at the time, may seem like the best thing? But in reality, we are hurting ourselves and those around us. We have walked away from too many of our troubles in the past, only if we have stayed and fought harder to overcome the troubles, then maybe our futures wouldn’t be so bleak? With all the division and the destruction around us today, goes to show just how many have walked away, to take what they thought was the easy way out? Jesus walked through this journey, not to show us this division and destruction, this is on each of us within this society, Jesus walked this journey, to show us love, compassion for each other, how to get through the troubling times, to get through the storms, so we can get to the other side, the side of the light of the path of righteousness, as he brings us into his peace and joy, of the eternal world. This journey of life does not revolve around any certain one of us, it revolves around us all, and when we truly feel the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls, when we truly have the faith in Jesus Christ, we then will see the hope right in front of us, as we keep moving forward along our paths, we also will be more able to walk through any storm and get to the other side, the side of the light along the path of righteousness, that is the path Jesus showed us to get to, for the eternal life, of the world of peace and happiness always.

When those troubling times come to you, when the darkness takes away all the light, this is when we need to be at our strongest, this is when we need to stand up and fight the good fight, keep the true faith in Jesus Christ as he will help guide us, as we dig down deep within, to not just walk through the storm, but walk through with faith, that the true hope will always be there on the other side, so we than can be within the peace and joy of Jesus Christ. This journey isn’t about walking away and taking the easy route, but when we fight the good fight and overcome our troubles, then this journey will become easy for us all, as now through the faith in Jesus and ourselves, the peace and joy is right in front of us along with the hope, which then dismisses all the division and the ugliness that may be around us. Satan is the one who will place the bumps along our paths, to trip us up away from Jesus Christ, he will bring to us many temptations, that will bring nothing but darkness to us all. This is why we need to keep the faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, so we can have the true hope before us, and not the false hope of, all the divisiion and ugliness that Satan will give us, when we give in to his temptations. The decision is ours to make, we can either feel the warmth of the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls, or we can let our hearts become cold, within the world of Satan, full of division and destruction. When we truly follow Jesus as he guides us onto the path of righteousness, we will be within the eternal life of his peace and joy, but when we chose Satan, we then will be within all the division and ugliness, which then brings much pain and hurt to us all. With the true faith in Jesus and ourselves, we then can walk through the dark times, to get into the light of salvation and eternity, which then will bring to us, the peace and joy of Jesus Christ.

So the easy way out and to just walk away from your troubles, may seem like the best way? The grass is never greenest on the other side, as we need to work through our troubles, so we than can truly see the real green grass on the other side, as we become better and stronger moving forward. This is what Jesus taught us as he walked this journey with us, this is how we evolve with strength and how we move forward instead of backwards further into the darkness. We can walk away from everything that may be in front of us, but if we do not fight the good fight, we will never learn the true meaning of what Jesus taught us during his time with us. So as the Priest talks of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, he really means that, don’t just eat the bread and use the wine to chase it down, let the bread melt in your mouth, then let the blood of Christ bring it throughout your body, as you acknowledge Jesus is within you, then you can feel the true warmth of his love within your heart and soul, so with the true faith of Jesus and of yourself, now you can walk through any darkness, to get to the light of the hope in front of you, that will bring you to the eternal life of peace and joy always.

” The easy way is to never walk away and give up, to get through the troubles we must fight the good fight so this journey then becomes easy for us all”

” To walk away from the troubles we may think is easy, but we are just extending all the division and ugliness further along our paths”

” When the troubles come to us, this is Satan trying to tempt us into the darkness, we need to stand strong against him, so the darkness will give way to the light of salvation and the eternal life of Jesus Christ, for true faith and hope into his peace”

The Miracles of life will always be there within us

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

Mk 5:39

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Material things

” What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul”

Mark 8:36

” The Bible says, is not with money itself, but with our love of money”, ” The love of money is a root of all kinds of Evil”

1 Timothy 6:10

We of this society have become so consumed with money and of material things, that we have lost total sight of were we are truly going along this journey of life. Through our need of money, it has turned us into someone that, not even we ourselves know truly of who we are and even as we look into any mirror. The greed of everything around us, has us look at everything with the eyes of, how much does that cost? The real true beauty around has no price and is priceless when we view them from the right angle, most of the time if something has no price and cost us nothing, then because of our need of money, we then look at that item as worthless and not worth it? Then we move past that item and forget about whatever it is.

When Jesus came to us and walked his path of this journey, he did so with the clothes on his back, and looked like what we see in any city, a homeless man. Today when we see anyone living out in the streets, we look away as if they have some kind of crazy and very infectious disease? Now true some may have made that choice to live that way, but most did not, as they were forced onto the streets, not just of bad times, but for reasons that greed had taken everything from them. Because of greed, we essentially have put a price on all our lives as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Look at the Leaders of some of the other countries today, with them it is all about, power, control and greed. They value more of what can you do for me, instead of what can I do for you, greed is the root of everything Evil and if you follow the money, then you as well will be led to a path of destruction sooner or later. I get the fact we all want to be comfortable, but really just how comfortable can you be, when there is a hefty price tag, on everything you do, say, or even buy. Greed has become so powerful to all of us, gone are the days of a simple thing like Bartering, now most in this society have no clue what Bartering is because of greed, it is quite simple, when you exchange something with another for a service, with no monies exchanging hands, well then you have done the simple act of bartering, not too mention the fact that, now you have done something even greater like, you have now created a trust and a bond with another, that can and will last a lifetime.

We have fallen so deep within the bubble of greed, that now we will purchase all the material things, just so we will look more powerful than those around us, we will purchase land to build a home on, without thinking of the lives that will get disrupted, when the land gets cleared? But what we never think of when we purchase that land is, all the wildlife in that area now has to relocate. Through greed all of our judgments are thickly settled with clouds, as now we can not think clearly anymore, Plus through greed, we now only think of ourselves, with zero empathy or remorse for anything, or anyone that may be around us.

When you add in the technology like we have today, to the equation of greed, now everything has multiplied even greater, don’t get me wrong, technology can and will help us, but in a lot of ways it has hurt us to the point that, we have taken huge steps backwards instead of moving forward. For instance all th social media platforms today, when they were created they were very good and actually kept us communicating with those a far, but!!! Now we the people have turned even these platforms into our worst nightmares, and you think the creator’s of these platforms really care? They have not lost a nights sleep over it, even more, they are laughing all the way to the bank, over all our anger issues and attacks we make on their platforms.

This society is in need of a major fix, we the people have put ourselves into this, we the people need to wake up to reality, and pull ourselves out of the huge hole we dug, from the appetite of trying to achieve all the power, control and greed of each other. Jesus showed us how to walk our paths of this journey, so we can get to that path of righteousness, but with our actions within this society, is this really the way we thank him? Jesus is within all our souls and his blood warms our hearts as it flows freely throughout our bodies, but when we do not acknowledge him, then our hearts and souls become so cold, we lose all empathy for everything and everyone around us, which then lets all the greed take ahold of us and control every fiber of our being. It is never to late to fix this, Jesus will always be there for us, but only when we truly feel his love within us, truly have complete faith in him, so we than can move forward with hope, so that we can fix what is wrong, then get back to walking our paths in peace, and move forward on this journey with the joy for everything around us.

” The darkness will only last as long as we let it, then the true light will brighten our paths of this journey”

” The trees will lose their leaves in the fall and may look bare, then in the spring new life prevails with fresh leaves on all the trees”

” God created all this beauty for us all to come together, not to separate and destroy everything around us”

Just because you do not see him…….

” My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me”

Psalm 101:6

Hope for today:

It’s tempting to look at men and women in scripture and think they were superhuman or ultra holy. The same God who walked with them walks with us, we just need to remain faithful knowing his eyes are on us.

The time that Jesus Christ came and walked his journey here with us is so far removed, that within todays society we just do not acknowledge his existence? This is the problem today, and what has led us into a life of non faithfulness, which then leads us into a world of no hope, as without faith there will never be hope. Jesus is within us all and when we keep our faith in him as well as ourselves, we can clearly feel his warmth within our hearts and souls. That warmth you feel in your heart, that is the love of Jesus comforting you, which then you share that love with all those around you. This love is all natural to us and very easy to share, the hatred we see is not natural, and is learned from other sources such as Satan himself, with the hate only shows not just how cold our hearts have become, but how cold we have become toward one another.

There are three words that best describe this society today, power, control and greed. With the far left liberal media and the so called leader’s within the walls of Washington DC taking center stage through it all. All these Individuals have an agenda whether they admit it or not? These agendas will benefit them only and leave the rest of us out in the cold. Their biggest agenda is to bring more unwanted drama to us all, they will tell us only what they want us to know, and never tell us the real truth, they will tell us so many lies that they themselves will then become engulfed in the world of denial, which has them telling so many lies, that they lose touch with true reality. The power of denial is so strong, that it will strip you of who you truly are, as now you yourself will not even recognize yourself, even when looking into the mirror.

Throughout this journey of life, we never know what lurks around each corner that is in front of us? Just like this picture as you stare into the thick forest, you do not know what lurks deep within the thick woods? This is where the faith and the trust in yourself and in Jesus Christ comes in, as then you can have the hope to walk through with confidence, as now you have become better and stronger for it, as you walk your path of this journey through life with great hope moving forward. Our so called leaders and the far left liberal media with their sick twisted agendas, have lost this concept, which they then bring us their far fetched rhetoric and propaganda’s.

These storm clouds hovering above these mountains may look mean and nasty? Yes the storms can wreak havoc and bring damage, but when you are prepared, and keep to your faith in yourself as well as Jesus Christ, this is the confidence you need, to walk through these storms unscathed, as now you have reached the light and the bright sun on the other side, which brings you the peace and the joy that you are searching for. This journey of life has many paths for us to walk, yes we may take the wrong path that will bring us many storms, but if we never keep to the faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, we will never get to the right path, that will bring us great hope, within the peace and the joy, that we all are searching for.

Just because you do not see Jesus Christ, does not mean he does not exist? He is within us all, he warms our hearts with his love for us then to share with each other, he lives within our souls and guides us along our paths, as we then move forward throughout this journey, so we can get to that path of righteousness, which brings us all the peace and happiness we so deserve. Just as God brought to us his son, Jesus one day will bring to us his son, so we can be renewed into the faith, and see all the hope right before us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. What we all lose sight of today is, the fact that we all have lost that feeling deep within of the love of Jesus Christ within our hearts and soul, we let the power of denial control every fiber of our being. Then when denial is front and center within us, we then lose who we truly are and suppress it so deep within, that know we move forward portraying this fake self to those around us and we black out what is real, to replace it with what is fake. Just like we have many streets to drive within this society, so to are their many paths to walk throughout this journey, without the faith of ourselves and Jesus Christ, there will never be any hope moving forward.

” Just because you do not see Jesus Christ, does not mean he does not exist”

” We drive many streets in our lives, we forget that there are also many paths to walk through this journey as well”

” When the storms encompass us all, we need faith and confidence to have the hope to get through them unscathed”

Yet another Lenten journey

da9b9-lent_2013_40days

” A Leper came to Jesus and kneeling down begged him and said, “if you wish, you can make me clean”. Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand, touched him, and said to him, I do will it, be made clean”

MK 1:40-41

With yet another Lenten journey about to embark and open it’s gates to us all, may we all first take the trek back into the house of God, so we can rekindle our relationship with Jesus, to let our hearts be warmed with his love, to fill our souls, then bring the same warmth and love to one another, as we then take the 40 day journey of Lent, through this journey of life.

As we take this journey of Lent, we do so as we sacrifice something, just as Jesus sacrificed himself, for us all. When Jesus came and walked his journey with us, he did so while showing us all, just how to not only love ourselves, but to love all those around us as well. Jesus is the one who healed us from all the ugliness around us, he healed many from their sicknesses and their diseases, all we need was, to have complete faith in ourselves as well as in him, so we then can have great hope moving forward. Jesus has done a great deal for each of us, now as the journey of Lent is upon us, let us show him Respect, by honoring him, and sacrificing a part of us, through this journey of Lent.

When the Leper stepped forward into the eyes of Jesus, those around him flinched with his looks, but Jesus never flinched as he called him near, The Leper asked Jesus to cleanse him, and Jesus did just that with no regret. Those that were there and witnessed the cleansing, were in complete awe of this, as they to wanted Jesus to heal them moving forward. Even though we of this society have never seen or heard from Jesus, he is there, not only there, but with the faith in him, he gives us hope moving forward, as we walk our paths through this journey. The love of Jesus is always within us, and will never leave us, only that, with our actions and the clouds of our judgments, does then the love become buried deeply, as our hearts then become cold.

We of this society, and we of little faith today, have lost sight of the hope that is in front of us, because of some among us, we are forced to see all the ugliness, forced to bury the love deep within, which then fills our hearts with the cold of hatred, that clouds our judgments, that brings us into denial, without seeing the reality that is right in front of us. We are better than this, we are stronger than this, Jesus didn’t teach us this when he came to us, this is totally on us, the people who walk their paths of this journey, we have become so engulfed with the negatives, that the clouds are stopping us from seeing any positives. It really doesn’t have to be this way, this is not of who we truly are, as the love is always within us, and the hate is a learned behavior, of which we learn it from somewhere, or someone. Today we all have become the Leper of this society, and with this Lenten journey in front of us, may we all then, come before Jesus Christ and kneel, as we then ask him to heal us from this ugliness around us, so we than can dig down deep, get back in touch with his love, let the love warm our hearts once again, so the hate will disappear from us all, share the love with each other. Then as we are back in touch with our true selves, and as we keep the faith of ourselves and Jesus front and center, then the hope will always be there in front of us as well, so we then can move forward in strength, walk our paths to be better, throughout this journey of life, as Jesus showed us, when he came to us and walked his path among us.

The ugliness and the hatred within this society is totally on all of us, this is not of who we truly are. Just like the society back when Jesus came and walked his path, we of this society have let some, engulf us with their power, control and greed grab, that has forced us into the darkness, and away from the light. It is okay to travel through the darkness, as this helps heal us from our troubles, but when we get stuck in the darkness, with no light in sight, this is when we bury the love of Jesus deeply, as we try to minimize the pain, to keep the hurt as little as we can, the darkness keeps us in touch with reality, as the light is right around the corner. Even the light of the day, gives way to the darkness, but only for a short time, as the light comes back even brighter the next day, We are all encompassed within the darkness of the ugliness around us, this darkness does not have to last, so as we enter in this Lenten journey once again, may we all sacrifice something as Jesus did, so at the end of this 40 day journey of Lent, we then, can move into the light, with complete faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, as the hope brings the love up out of the darkness within us, warms our hearts greatly, so we than can share this love with each other, as we now can walk our paths better and stronger, which then, brings the peace and happiness to us all throughout this journey of life.

” Through the darkness comes the light, just like when there is faith there is also hope”

” When the Leper steps out of the darkness we turn away, which further deepens the love within us”

” The 40 days of Lent is just a small sacrifice, then the sacrifice Jesus made for all throughout this journey”
