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”

 

 

 

 

 

A Society in the clouds…….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

 

There is so much true beauty out there but the problem is, we of this Society can not see it, only because the clouds have become so dense around us and has also leaked into our judgments, leaving us with tunnel vision and not truly seeing all the true beauty around us.

The Corruption, the Ugliness, the Senseless shootings, the simple fact that we have forgotten how to use our Common Sense and the big one………. The way that the Political Correction has made us all weak. With the Corruption all around us, especially within the walls of all the Governments, state and federal combined, has each one of us not knowing of who to trust anymore, the election of Donald Trump to President of the United States, has some of us so much in an up roar, that they refuse to do anything that is in the best interest of the people of this country, in fact……… They have turned this country into the laughing stock of the World. The people voted President Trump in, but yet our other elected officials refuse to work with him and will do anything, to try to take him down. President Trump is a man that shoots from the hip and is not afraid to call you out on your non actions, true he is a bit rough around the edges with his words, but that is what being non political correct is like. There is a great quote from the movie A Few good men, ” you can’t handle the truth”, this is exactly how those on the left feel, as President Trump speaks truth to them everyday. Just because you did not vote for President Trump, is no excuse to show him zero respect, in fact he is now a sitting President and for this country to be truly great, we all need to show him the respect he deserves, as he is doing the job he said and all for we the people of this country.

The ugliness around us today is the fault of all of us within this Society, as we totally let these media types put forth their agendas everywhere we go and look. Their agendas is all about drama and only printing parts of a story that creates more drama, instead of printing the whole story and not just the whole story, but the true facts of all the half stories they feed us. The media is so focused on trying to bring down our President, that they can’t even do their jobs correctly anymore, the real stories are the ones that the media leaves out, as the fake news are the half stories they feed us daily. The real information of these stories that get left out are there within the information super highway, just that you need to know of which avenue to travel down to get it, which those that found the real information, are the ones that put President Trump in the big office at, 1600 Pennsylvania avenue.

The senseless shootings is nothing about gun control, as it is a direct narrative from all the hatred that is around us today and the true fact of, we the people are so afraid to truly express ourselves because of this political correction, that we hold so much deep inside ourselves, that it is a matter of time before the ticking time bomb explodes right before us, with all the shootings going on before us, only shows just how deeply each of us are truly hurting deep inside, as the fuses of the ticking time bombs are at the point of ignition all around us. The way we end this hatred and the senseless shootings is, to completely put our faith in Jesus Christ, so he can help us have complete faith in ourselves, to bring out our true love and empathy that is deep within us, instead of this unwanted hatred we are bringing out now. Nobody wants to see a school of innocence get shot up with some dying, so let us all unite together, put our complete faith in Jesus Christ, so he can help us all end the hate, bring out our love and empathy within us, so we can move forward by loving one another, as we walk our paths of this journey, in peace and happiness.

Common sense is not too common within our Society anymore, simply because it is hard to see through the clouds of our judgments, bringing back common sense to our Society is an easy fix, a matter of fact it is so easy that, because of the clouds we just don’t see it right in front of us. when we use our common sense then everything else around us, will fall in place, so we than can move forward with confidence, without being afraid of what might happen? Plus!!! If we use our common sense, than just maybe all the political correction will make us feel so uncomfortable, that it will fall from our existence and we all will become better and stronger moving forward.

Whether you are within a Government, or you are just a person within this Society, we are all Human Beings that are walking a path through this journey of life, if we all work together, share the love of Jesus Christ within our hearts and souls, then all this corruption, ugliness, hatred, attacking of one another, senseless shootings and the political correction will all disappear, as we then bring back our common sense, to help one another, instead of being divided from each other. The time is now for us all to unite as one, work together in ending all the ugliness, so we than can move forward in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

”  The society in the clouds can become sunny and clear once again, as we all unite as one and share our love with each other throughout this journey”

” in the eyes of God, there is no one that is above anybody, as we are all equal no matter of who you are”

” Common sense can once again become common, if we work together without becoming so divided”

” Time we all except the truth, except constructive criticism, so we than can end this political correction that controls us now”

” Let’s remember that the senseless shootings around us, is a direct narrative from all the hatred around us and is nothing about gun control”

 

 

 

 

 

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”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The road wasn’t always paved

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

We all walk our paths through this journey of life, in the beginning of Mankind the roads were never paved, that came later as we evolved over time. Now within this Society we all live in, so much has changed since the time back in the beginning, so much change for the better, as well as so much change that…………… well let’s just say has made us worse in a lot of ways.

” Change is good when done correctly, change can be bad when we don’t truly understand”

Societies of our past may seem like it was a simpler life? What we of this Society always forget is, they were busy trying to make it better for us all today, only because we of today think, we are the best and brightest of all Societies. Every Society has had their challenges, but unless we respect those of the past, we will forever be lost within the clouds of our judgments.  We of this Society are so lost within the clouds, we can not see clearly enough, to walk our paths without tripping up on the bumps along the path. A lot of times we take action on something, without thinking through the ramifications of those actions, with all the technology we have today and yet, we can all be so dumb at the same time? In a lot of ways, technology has made us all fat, dumb and lazy.

Then there is thing called Political Correction, which now has us all fearing the ” I am offended” dilemma we are in today. If you can’t handle the truth, then stay home in the backyard under that rock which you crawled out from under. We say so many untruths today, that we totally have no idea between fiction or truth anymore, we hide behind our technology while we are on our social media, but really how social is this media, that we hide behind our technology on? Because we are on this so called social media, we then are not outside being social with each other anymore, instead we do nothing but stab each other in the back and create this thing called hate we see around us today. This journey through life was never about the hate and ugliness we see today, this is on us the people of this Society.

The roads never start out being paved and smooth, we are the ones that do the paving and make them smooth, but lately in this Society all the paved roads have become broken and riddled with cracks? As we all have become so lazy, all the infrastructure around us that Societies of the past have built for us, has become run down and broken and time to be rebuilt, the problem then lies with we the people being stuck to our so called ” social media”. Video games and how they have evolved over time and how they have become so addicting to so many in this Society, they to like our social media have torn us away from each other and totally have us glued behind our technology. It is time we get back to socializing face to face once again, time we stop being so negative of everything around us, it is time we share the love within us with each other, so we than can walk our paths of this journey in the peace and happiness we all so deserve and until we do this, the roads will become worse, with more cracks and bumps to trip us up.

 

” The roads were never paved and smooth as we ourselves had to get out and do the paving to make them smooth”

” Technology is good when it is used to make us better and stronger moving forward, but it is bad when it makes us fat, dumb and lazy”

” How social is social media when all it does is, have us hide behind it instead of actually being face to face with each other”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Relax… Let go… trust the flow within the journey

 

 

 

 

We within this Society get so caught up in the now, that we then forget to just simply trust our instincts, trust our guts, we get so wound up that we never actually let ourselves truly relax, as we totally need in order to be free of all unwanted stress. Just as this Kayak is flowing within the wind and the waves bumping it from side to side, The driver of this Kayak and the Kayak itself, are one in the same, totally entrusting of the wind and the waves.

Starting from way back in the beginning of Mankind, there was Adam and Eve, as they walked the land with all the fruits, they were not supposed to eat from the apple tree, but one day Eve enticed Adam and the rest is history, as the flood gates opened, that we now know as Sin. God entrusted them to not eat from the apple tree, but they could not resist and now from their actions, they have to own up and live with their actions moving forward. Just because you have made a bad choice, or maybe even a costly mistake, it is not the end of the World, God will forgive you totally for your mistakes or your sins, you simply just have to, own up, accept responsibility of your actions to move forward and not backwards.

We all throughout this journey of life have created many sins and made many mistakes, we are not perfect, but when we totally have complete faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, There is no sin large enough nor any mistake complicated enough, that will detour us, from walking our paths through this journey of life. This journey is only of what you make it and will be either hard or easy, the choice is yours to make, just as it is also your choice to not show remorse, for any of your mistakes or sins. This journey has many twists and turns, but in no way should you be restricted from making any choices and when the mistakes come in, don’t try to hide them, as this is how we learn and move forward, to be better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

When we truly relax and let go of all the crap that may weigh us down, we will totally find that we can totally trust in ourselves, trust in Jesus Christ, which now we to can flow, very much like the Kayak within the water. Through Prayer we have learned to trust and have faith in Jesus Christ and with this faith, it will always give us hope in all we do as well. So yes Sin and mistakes will come to us, but when we totally accept them as such, take responsibility for our actions no matter how big or small, while we keep the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, so we than can have the hope to move forward throughout this journey and while we, walk in true peace and happiness always.

 

” Relax, trust, let go, so you can flow as smooth as the water flows down the stream”

” Sin and mistakes are par for the course along this journey, it’s what helps us learn and move forward better and stronger”

” Jesus Christ will always forgive us us for our sins and our wrongs, but first we have to forgive ourselves to receive his blessings and forgiveness”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Holy art though…… on this Blessed Holy week

See the source image

 

While the forty day journey comes to a close and Jesus gets betrayed by one of his Disciples, Let us all remember the sacrifice he made for each of us, so we than can be free from all harm, the sacrifice of himself, as he is nailed to the cross. Then on Good Friday he then rises from the tomb of the dead, to truly show of just how much he loved us all. With this Holy week, let each of us sacrifice away all this ugliness around us, so we then can dig down deep within our souls, pull out the love within us and share this love with each other, not the superficial love, but the true love of Jesus Christ that is within all our hearts and souls.

Jesus set a great example for us all to follow, but we the people not only have lost the faith in him, but we also have developed a mind set that, our way is the super highway and the only way, now look where that has taken us, with all the ugliness and hate that surrounds us today. This ugliness and hate is we the people giving into Temptation, the same Temptation for which Satan had tried to temp Jesus into giving into and joining him with his ugliness. Jesus stayed true to who he is, believed totally in his Father, the lord God, the creator of all Mankind, so he could prove to us along his journey here with us, that there is so much more to the journey, when we to stay true to ourselves, stay true to the love within our hearts and souls, have complete Faith in ourselves as well as with He………Jesus Christ.

This and all Easter seasons isn’t just a time for candy and a Easter Bunny. It all starts with the Lenten journey, or the forty day journey, the very same journey Jesus walked here with us, as this journey then takes us into the Holy week, with betrayals, pain and hurt, while it ends with a resurrection from the dead, showing the true power of love. During the Lenten journey Jesus showed us that, when we stay true to who we are, with great faith in ourselves and he as well, there is no temptation strong enough that will over power and control us, as we to walk a path through this journey of life, which then will give us great hope moving forward always.

The sacrifice, the love, the temptations, the faith or the hope, are not just key components of the Lenten forty day journey, these are key components for us all as we walk our paths, through this journey of life. These components are what makes us who we truly are, so we than can share our compassion and empathy with each other and when we share this compassion and empathy, then the ugliness and hate will disappear from our lives, so we than can be within the peace and happiness, that Jesus brought us to, as we came to the true path of righteousness. Within the path of righteousness, there is no room for any hate or ugliness, which then surrounds us with all good, with the evil staying put, where ever  it goes, when it is not wanted by anyone. May we all find that true peace within this Holy week, so we than can keep this peace going throughout the year and throughout all our paths, of this journey through life.

 

” The forty day journey of Lent is a journey that free’s us from the ugliness and hatred, through sacrifice and truly feeling the warmth of God’s love within us”

” The true love of Jesus within us is more powerful than anything that we may encounter along our paths of this journey”

” Good Friday to Easter, is the resurrection of Jesus Christ, so he could show just how deeply he loves each of us”

” Through all the ugliness and hatred around us, the true love of Jesus Christ is always within our hearts and souls”

 

 

 

 

 

Peace for the World…….Peace within the World

1398913762364

 

 

With another Lenten journey upon us, time for my little friend……… Martin Richards, to once again make an appearance. ” No more hurting people………Peace”, this is a great quote by an eight year old boy, that was taken from our Society way too soon and in a way at the Boston Marathon bombing, that was totally an act of two Sick Demented Cowards.

Really!!! Do we need this amount of hatred that is around us today? We all tend to forget that, hatred is learned and takes great amounts of work to keep it going, while Love is deep within the hearts and souls of us all and really needs no work at all to spread among us all. School shootings, ISIS, the fact that we are way too negative of each other and now more recently, placing bombs in packages, like what is happening in Texas right now. COME ON PEOPLE!!! TIME TO WAKE UP!!! Before we ourselves destroy each other and this planet Earth, becomes nothing but desert land with nothing around.

We all hurt real pain in many ways and at different times within our lives, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Sometimes the hurt is brought on by we ourselves and sometimes by others, who bring us this pain, just to hide deeply their pain and hurt. The only way to truly fix ourselves of our pain and hurt is to, address it, keep asking ourselves why over and over, til we actually get a truthful answer, but even more so, we totally need to simply accept our faults, accept responsibility for our actions and truly, accept of who we are, so we than can get back in touch with our true inner feelings of, Empathy and Love.

Empathy and Love are within the hearts and souls of us all, with the pain and hurt that comes to us, we then have the tendency to bury very deeply these two feelings, like they are not even there? Then as we do this, we learn from others around us, of how to hate and be very negative of each other, We are so afraid of what others will think of us, that we then become someone for who we truly are not. God did not creates us to be hateful or attack one another, this is on each of us as people, who walk a path through this journey of life. Responsibility of our actions goes a long way as we walk our paths and when we are responsible, we than can earn each others respect, which will further us in, walking this journey in the peace and happiness, that God envisioned, when he created us all.

It is totally okay for us to cry when we hurt with real pain, just as it is totally okay for us to, reach out when we need a helping hand, this is what helps us fix what we need to fix, so we can move forward and not backwards throughout this journey.  There is a great quote from the movie Forest Gump, ” Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know of what you’ll get”, So is this journey through life like the box of chocolates, as there are many paths to travel through the journey, you never know of what is waiting around each corner, we just have to stay true to ourselves, truly feel the love and empathy within our hearts and souls, so we than can move forward better and stronger, as the peace and happiness surrounds us, with no sign of any hatred. Then we can be in true peace, as God envisioned and Jesus taught us, when he came to us and walked his path with us, though this journey of life.

 

” Peace on Earth will eliminate and unlearn all the hate we have learned”

” The love along this Lenten journey, is our true love deep within our hearts and souls”

” Hate is learned and love is within each of us, keep saying it to ourselves, so we can truly feel the love within us”

” Pain and hurt will come to each of us at sometime, we just have to learn how to address and fix it to be better and stronger”
