40-day journey well worth any sacrifice

 

 

da9b9-lent_2013_40days

 

With yet another Lenten season upon us and as the 40-day journey has begun with us going to church and having the ashes placed on our foreheads, let us all sacrifice something within our lives much the same as Jesus did, showing our faith in the Lord and we haven’t forgotten what he did for us all when he walked his journey here with us.

Jesus also walked this 40-day journey and was confronted by many a temptation, with the biggest temptation coming from Satan himself. We like Jesus get tempted by the power of temptation many times through this journey but as Jesus kept the faith in his father as well as himself, showed to us all that even with the power of temptation bearing down on our souls, when we stay true to who we are when we keep the faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, we to can overcome all temptation and no matter how hard we struggle, we can walk our paths through this journey of life, better and stronger and reach for the stars as there is no force strong enough to conquer us as we move forward, just as Jesus did throughout the 40-day journey.

The Lenten season is one of the most special times of the year, but if you have lost all faith in yourself and Jesus Christ, have become a non-believer in any kind of higher power,  then this time of year will have you wondering with no direction and susceptible to any kind of temptation that may come your way. Temptation is a very powerful force that will control everything in its path, yes it can suck you in but it will also spit you out just as fast and it really does not care for the condition it may leave you. We all will be tempted by each other as well. we see one with a lifestyle you dream of, then wonder why you can not have the same? We may try but then end up with much more issues then we can handle, when we just simply be who we truly are, sacrifice when we need to move forward better, so we then can have the strength to resist all temptation that may knock us down and keep us stepping backward instead of moving forward.

Temptation is quite simply Satan trying to take control of us all as well as everything else within this world, temptation at times will come with a sugar coating surrounded by whip cream and cherries, it will promise us the world but never deliver on its promise. When we stay true to who we are, resist all that the temptation may bring to us, never lose the faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, then we can resist and conquer all that temptation may bring to us, so we may prosper and walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness that God envisioned for us all. You can clearly see within this society of today, that there are so many that have given in to temptation, so many that have lost the faith in themselves as well as Jesus Christ and because of that we are all traveling in so many directions, that we all have lost our way and there is no GPS made that will bring us back in the right direction, only Jesus himself can do this, but as we have let Satan control us through the temptations, we do not even give Jesus a thought, let alone even having any faith at all.

So as we walk yet another 40-day journey through lent, let us walk it with a purpose, let us walk it with meaning, as we sacrifice as Jesus did, learn that when we resist the temptation that not all is lost and the world will not end, as with the total belief in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, we can get back to who we truly are, we can get back to walking our paths with confidence, so this journey through life will have a meaning once again, it will have a true direction without wandering in circles, through temptation we become stripped from being of who we truly are and lose sight of what this journey is really about. With the total belief in ourselves and Jesus Christ, we then can truly find that path of righteousness, which Jesus told us about as he walked this journey with us, but right now as we have become overwhelmed with the power of temptation, we are all walking in so many different directions, that we have lost the sight of true reality which will lead us nowhere and further away from, having any faith in ourselves or Jesus Christ.

That old saying of, ” keeping up with the Jones” is so far from the truth, but as we become tempted to do so, we find that what may be good for one, may not be good for another. This journey is full of many paths as well as many temptations, but the only way to walk this journey confidently is, to be truly of who we are and to have complete faith in Jesus Christ, as he showed us in his 40-day journey, just how much he loved us, by the true sacrifice he made for each one of us. It is not about forcing oneself and your beliefs on each other, as it is totally about loving one another, no matter of what may cross our paths and when we walk our paths correctly, then this journey through life will be that of peace and happiness for us all, so as we take stock in our lives in this Lenten season, let us all throw out what we do not need and sacrifice these things, so we then can move forward with what is important, as we then follow the lead of Jesus Christ, away from all temptation, to be better moving forward and as we show respect, dignity, and love toward one another always, throughout this journey of life.

 

” The season of lent is one of sacrifice, much like Jesus did while he showed his true love toward all”

 

” During the season of Lent, we should take stock in our lives sacrifice what we do not need and move forward better with only what we need”

 

” 40 days and 40 nights to get back to who we truly are and move forward better and stronger”

 

” Temptation is a strong force but we are stronger when we stay true to who we are”

 

 

 

 

Sometimes the best precaution is…………..” common sense”

I guess you can say that I am with Mark Levin on this one, Mark is a V-Jay on the Blaze with Glen Beck, saying that he would rather take the advice of a healthcare official and not from Pelosi or Schumer. It is pretty sad when our so called leaders have to politicize even a virus, simply because they are so far in denial, they can not see the true reality of anything they look at. Now in this day and age with all the technology and social platforms, it is very true that everything spreads like wildfire in every direction around us, tragedies and natural disasters can be seen within minutes on all the social platforms, then you add in a media that will stop at nothing to achieve their big drama agendas, now you will have anything the size of a mogul, turn into the size of a mountain or even bigger.

Now I get the fact that this Coronavirus is crippling countries with many lives being lost, but unlike what some on the left are saying, there are safety measures being taken by all the countries, but what we of today simply forget is, when we use our common sense, we then don’t need our Governments to dictate what we should do and only aid us all to be safe moving forward. This Coronavirus is spreading around the world kind of like the virus of 1918, true 99% of us were not around then and maybe very few are still here from that time, but either way, we are not going to remember what happened 102 years ago, which makes it that much more important to glance back to move forward better and stronger, as the virus from 1918 took the lives of 50,000,000 people and what the media of today will not tell you is, both these viruses originated in China, so what is wrong with knowing the truth, so we can truly help fix what we need to fix, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life.

Very true there have been many more diseases and viruses that have overcome us throughout the history of us all walking through this journey of life, so instead of being like those on the far left and pointing the finger of blame in any way that they can for their agendas, maybe we should take a look back within history from time to time, so we then can be a bit more informed, use the common sense that is within us all, as we all move forward and not backward, throughout this journey of life. Yes within this society of great technology and the fact that we the people can be so dumb, that instead of using our social media platforms for good and informing us ahead of time for what may be coming, instead, we let the far-left liberal media dictate to us through their platforms of all the drama of everything, whether that drama be true or “Fake”. It is never too late to change what we may be doing, as change is also a huge part of this journey, the change will come to us in many different ways and when we accept change and adapt to the change, then the change shouldn’t be all that scary and come with minimal pain to us all, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” Change can scare the crap out of us all, it can bring great pain as well, but when we accept and adapt to it properly can be just as beautiful than this journey of life”

 

” Precaution is kind of like preventive medicine, we document it within our brains and let common sense do its thing”

 

” Sometimes we need to glance back in time to adjust and fix what we may be doing wrong now moving forward”

 

 

 

Get to the “Heart” of the judgment

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” You have heard that it was said to your Ancestors, you shall not kill and whoever kills will be liable to judgment. But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment”

Mt 5:21-22a

 

With this quote from scripture and as we truly decipher the words, you can clearly see that each one of us are guilty of sin, so I think we all need to enter into the house of God, so we can ask for his forgiveness, so we can move forward within this journey through life, without looking back and dwelling in the troubles of our pasts, keeping us within the walls of purgatory within this life.

God created us all as equals true there are some differences, but these differences are what makes us unique to each other, now in this society, we simply do not look deep enough to see any uniqueness, we judge way to quickly and when it comes to getting to truly know one another……….. Let’s just say it may be easier to walk along the shore of the beach and watch the waves slap the shoreline alone with our own thoughts. This journey through life was meant for us all to coincide, not to be divided or bicker at each other with each turn.

The heart is front and center as the most vital of our organs, the heart can become overcome real easily, but if we treat it correctly it can also bring us much comfort and joy with feelings of warmth. The heart will see everything as all our other organs send it the signals of life, the love of Jesus is also within our hearts which brings us the warmth of life, so we can move forward with strength.

Today we take for granted so much that we do not even think about what is most important until it becomes too late, we will get caught up with neglecting what is good, only to try to fit in with what we think is normal? then we think that if we do not actually pull the trigger of the gun, then we did not commit the sin of the murder, but what we do not want to think about is, once that even has become a thought, now the signal has gone within our hearts, to which the sin has already been committed long before the trigger has been pulled and now we need to walk into the house of the Lord, so we can have God forgive us and then we can forgive ourselves and others.

“Bless me, Lord, for I have sinned”, you do not hear these words all too much anymore simply because, with a few that do not have the faith let alone believe, they will cry and say that they have been offended until another will make an amendment that will prohibit anyone from saying those words, are you kidding me? Have we stooped to this level today? I think we all should go back to the basics, go back to the beginning of Mankind, go back to a time that we couldn’t even communicate with anything around us and we had to figure it out, or we simply became just another statistic as we walked through this journey of life.

This journey may seem hard to some, but it is really quite simple and all you need to figure it out is simple Common Sense. Now other societies of the past left us with good and a lot of prosperity, but within this society and our actions, we will not leave the newest generation with the same prosperity that we received, instead, we will leave them on their own to figure out, with no base to start from and use as a guide, for their actions to take them into a journey of peace, instead of a journey full of great pain and hurt. The guide for us here in America is the Constitution, which is why we all have to read it in its entirety, each country has its own guidelines, but this is another way of us showing our uniqueness, now I get that we will want to interpret these guidelines very different, but if we do not follow our heart, then our judgments along this journey will be within the clouds throughout this journey, then the pain and the hurt, not to mention the walking of the journey with no common sense, will have us all be within the division and bickering back and forth without truly listening to anything that is around us.

 

” Don’t skip any beat as the heart is the life of all throughout this journey of life”

 

 

” The killing takes place in the mind’s eye before any action has been taken”

 

 

” The sin is made when you simply think of the action, not when you actually take the action”

 

 

 

Follow Jesus and be enlightened throughout this journey

” Come after me, and I will make you Fishers of men”

Mt: 4:19

 

 

 

We of this society would rather live in frustration for what we can not do than to truly follow and have complete faith in Jesus Christ, for he will truly lead us and never lead us astray anywhere on our paths of this journey. We of this society think that success comes from stepping on another’s shine, but true success comes from true faith in Jesus Christ to lead us to the path of righteousness, so we all can have hope moving forward with strength and be true of who we are.

Jesus Christ did not come here for himself, he came here for you and me to prosper on this journey, but yet we all within this society have gone the complete opposite of what he taught us as he walked his journey. We of this society think that we can do better at everything, that we do not need help with anything, we also think we are smarter than all those who have walked before us? We are all so confused within this society that we have lost the faith of everything that is good, which now leaves us with no hope moving forward through all the hatred around us.

This world today is so full of ugliness and hatred only because we have lost all faith in not just ourselves, but lost all faith in Jesus Christ our savior. This quote today is more than just what you may think of as being a Fishermen when you become a fisher of men, you have opened your heart and soul to Jesus Christ, you truly believe with true faith that Jesus is good and will never lead you astray, so now as you follow Jesus with your heart, you can then lead others to the same promise land, that Jesus has led you to as well. No matter how troubled you think you are, with the true faith and belief in Jesus Christ, you will always have the hope for a better and smoother path, as you walk through this journey of life.

No matter where you go throughout this planet, you can see all the corruption, you can see all the ugliness and hate, this is just how sad this society truly is today, it only goes to show just how many have lost all faith in themselves as well as Jesus Christ, which now leaves us with no hope moving forward and for those who still have the true faith, makes it that much harder for them to walk forward with confidence throughout this journey. Our so-called leaders can not truly lead anymore, even some who wear the cloth has lost this faith and have become corrupt with great ugliness, when all around us have become engulfed in this corruption, ugliness, and hatred, then where do we turn? We turn to Jesus Christ and reach down deep within, to truly feel his love for each of us, his love is always deep within our hearts and souls, just that we need to have complete trust in him, so we then can have complete faith and the hope will follow us all, all we need to do is, not only reach down deep within, but totally acknowledge Jesus, so he then can help us all no matter how troubled you think you are.

We all may walk our own paths, but the journey we walk them in is all the same, we all start out the same, then our paths bring us to different locations as some may intersect at different times, then we all have the same ending to this journey, but the biggest part is the fact that the time in the middle is where we all go wrong, especially when we lose touch with everything around us, lose touch with ourselves and most of all, lose touch with Jesus Christ our Savior. When we truly acknowledge Jesus and love him as he loves us, then no matter what trouble that may come to you, then our faith will never leave us as we will all move forward with the hope, to walk this journey in peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” A fisherman will catch the fish for all to eat and not starve, as a fisher of men will gather all in the love of Jesus to move forward to be better and stronger”

 

” Out of frustration we may do things not truly of who we are, out of love we can truly be of who we are”

 

” Corruption, ugliness and hatred are signs from Satan, as love comes from Jesus to help us grow in a positive way”

 

 

 

The Journey to the top

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The journey to the top can encompass many things, it’s not just hiking within the wilderness and reaching the summit of a mountain, it is also about reaching the pinnacle of your career and working your way to the top within the company you work. Both can and will be a lot of work, one being the hike up a mountain will drain you both physically and mentally, while depending on where you work it can involve more mental than physical? No matter which journey you are on, it will bring you great rewards when you achieve all that you want to achieve, especially when you reach the summit and not only breathe in the fresh air, but totally take in all the true beauty all around you.

The journey through the wilderness on your way to the summit of the mountain will hold so much beauty around you, that it keeps all your senses in tune to everything like the birds singing from tree to tree, the branches whistling as they sway in the breeze from the air, your sense of smell coming alive as the fresh aroma of the fresh air the plants and the wildflowers make your nose tickle with envy, your ears seem to be more active and amplified as all the sounds within nature have them totally in tune with all that is around you and will have you hear even a twig snap from a good distance away, then as you look out at what you are seeing, your eyes then will have you more in focus with all that you may come across as you walk the journey to the summit of the mountain and as you reach the summit of the mountain, now you really see clearly for many miles all around you.

The journey within the path you take in your career choice is a whole lot different than the journey to the summit of the mountain, the drive you have within you so you can work to reach the pinnacle of your career is similar but different as you work hard in your career, you now lose out on the true beauty around you, as you focus solely on the job and reaching the summit within the company you work. Now we all can not reach the summit within our career choices, but we all can reach the summits of the mountains we chose to walk a path upon, within our careers and with all our hard work, now we become too tired to venture out within an adventure, we then stay within our inner circles without getting out within nature, seeing all the same things day after day, keeping the same routines from week to week, then not only taking everything for granted but totally forgetting that there is a whole lot more out there and a whole lot more beauty around us as well. True that we need the journey within our careers to make ends meet, but if we do not acknowledge all the other journeys also, now the path we walk through this journey of life, just may become boring and have us wandering, instead of actually walking with confidence, all the little journeys within this one big journey.

The journey to the top of anything can and will come with some work on our part, but that’s just it, we need to work in order to reap all the benefits no matter what the journey for which we walk. Nothing comes easy and nothing will come freely, which is why we work hard, so we then can reap all the benefits and see all the true beauty that is all around us, at every turn along our paths of this journey through life.

 

” The journey to the top comes in many different ways and will always reward us in just as many ways as well”

 

” There is much beauty all around us with the key being we just need to focus and truly look deeply into what we see”

 

” When we are out of focus then no matter what we look at will never be clear for us to see”

 

 

Small Town America

See the source image

The beauty of small-town America lives in many areas within this great country, now there are many small towns through the years that have not lived on for a variety of reasons and that is sad because small-town America was once the fabric that made this country truly great. A lot of these small towns have become what we know today as a Ghost town, these Ghost towns are deep in history, but once again we forget these places simply because we have become too lazy to learn the history instead, we want to think we are the trailblazer only because we are so engulfed in the idea of being in the limelight, that we forget that America had a past and a great past at that.

I lived in the great state of Colorado for some time, plenty long enough that I explored many areas within this state, whether on the beaten path or off the beaten path, as I had a four-wheel-drive truck, that would get me into a lot of places that a normal vehicle could not go. I drove up across mosquito pass from Breckenridge to Leadville, as high as 13,500 feet, this pass was also the old pony express route that would deliver the mail through all kinds of weather and what took me eight to ten hours, depending on me stopping at the old-time Ghost towns to view, would of taken the pony express two to four weeks to travel depending on the weather. Then there was another Ghost town just outside of Minturn, Colorado that was built literally on the side of a mountain, but people had to leave their homes as the water supply had lead in it, that forced them out. There were many small towns similar all through the state of Colorado it makes for a great state to visit and learn of the true history of America. There is a small town about forty minutes west of Denver called Georgetown, this was once a very vibrant silver mining town, that when times change and the silver wasn’t needed as much, went through some difficult times, a lot had left the town, but the ones who stayed had to think outside the box, as to keep this beautiful small town from turning into yet another Ghost town.

There are many small towns throughout this country of America, some still vibrant today as they had to reinvent themselves to stay afloat, while many others fell to become Ghost towns that are just buildings with no vibrancy or movement from Mankind. Within this society today we take so much for granted and the biggest thing is, we don’t take the time to learn from these pasts, so we then can move forward better and stronger. There is so much we can learn from these small towns, but yet today we are so arrogant that we think we are better than anything from our past? Within these small towns, you had people like you and me today, there are a few who came out of the small towns and made their marks within this country, now some had big impacts and are in the history books, some just for a short time which we do not really look at, then there are the ones who left the small towns to never again looked back? They have forgotten of their roots and have moved forward with only themselves on their mind, we of this society in a lot of ways are doing this now, as when we work our way up within the companies we work, we tend to forget of what it took to get to where we are today. There is a lot more to this journey through life then what is around us at the present time, the problem then lies with each of us not taking the time to explore and see some of what America was, instead we want to think that we are the smart ones and the trailblazers of this country, but if it wasn’t for America’s past and the small towns that built the foundation of this country, then truly where would we all be today?

Everything around you started somewhere, whether a small town or even that technology device in your hand, if you never look back in the past and learn from it, then moving forward will be either difficult or just the fact of, we become wanderers instead of truly walking our paths through this journey of life. For me the best way I have learned of these small towns, was the time spent in the great state of Colorado, only because when I wasn’t working I was exploring and not just what was on the beaten path, I ventured off the beaten path and came across some of America’s smallest towns that are now forgotten Ghost towns, that now is a time that most of us have forgotten with no desire to ever learn from.

 

” The small towns of America which some have reinvented themselves while others have become a forgotten Ghost town”

 

” A true trailblazer of any country will explore all of that country, learn all they can to help the country become truly great in the world today”

 

” The Ghost towns of yesteryear have become forgotten from this society, but at one time it was vibrant and what helped build the foundation of this great country”

 

 

Fat Dumb and Stupid is no way to walk through this journey of life

a group of people sitting at a table in front of a crowd: Constitutional law experts Noah Feldman, Pamela Karlan, Michael Gerhardt and Jonathan Turley testify during a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Dec. 4, 2019.

The entire Democratic party is so far in denial they all have lost sight of all reality and these so-called hearings within the walls of Washington DC prove just that. Those of us who are Independent and actually have common sense can clearly see through all the corruption, we clearly can see that this goes a lot deeper than the hatred of a seated President, this is nothing more than one party wanting all the power and they will do anything to get it, even if it means making an entire country into the laughing stock of the World.

Very true we are all human and no one is perfect, we all make mistakes but when we don’t learn from our mistakes to move forward better, will only have us taking steps backward with no direction and when we have no direction will further the power of denial to overtake our being, which then will have us in our own little world of fiction, instead of walking our paths in reality along this journey.

Denial is a strong powerful force that will control every fiber of our being when we don’t take control of it, it will also turn us into someone for who we truly are not, become bitter and full of hatred of everything, especially when we do not get our way. In denial not only do we lose sight of reality, but we also lose our hearing to listen to the voice of reason, as we think nothing of the fact that we are doing anything wrong. While in denial and instead of truly fixing what we need to fix, we then procrastinate and putting it off as non-important and not being proactive, so we can fix our issues and move forward better as we walk our path of this journey.

We have this Holiday coming up and one of the most beautiful of Holidays at that, Christmas time should bring out the love that is within us all, instead of bringing out all this hatred of each other. Christmas is all about the birth of Jesus Christ, the only son of God our father, the one who created us and all that is around us. Jesus came to us and walked his path of this journey while teaching us many things, showing us how to truly feel the love in our hearts and sharing it with each other, while he truly led us to the path of righteousness, so we all could see the true light and be within peace and happiness always.

The problem with all this corruption and hatred within the walls of Washington DC is, we the people for letting it go on for too long, instead of voting with common sense and actually making a well-informed vote, we let way too many Politicians stay in office for way too long, which did nothing but turn these Individuals into everything that the office they held was against, They hold their hands out for all the kickbacks, as when they first came into office they had little in the bank and now they can afford a very exotic and plush lifestyle. The time is now for real change and ending the power of denial that has consumed the entire Democratic party before it ends each of us as we know it, time for us all to wake up out of our own little worlds and get back to reality, for the good of Mankind, so we all can move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” The hatred is so deep for the President of the United States that some have no clue of true reality”

 

” Denial is a strong force that will control every fiber of our being, so let’s take back the control and put to bed the denial”

 

” Christmas is all about the birth of Jesus Christ our savior and the love within us all”

 

” This is a special time of year where we all share our love with each other and not show any hatred anywhere on this journey”

 

 

 

Prayer can heal and there are no set guidelines to follow

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful”

Colossians 4:2

 

” It is good to give thanks to the Lord”

Psalms 92:1

 

Prayer is that Solemn place we can go to get away, meditate our minds, so we can get back in touch with who we truly are. Prayer is a silent message between you and the one who created you……… God the Father Almighty, as long as we keep the faith in him, there will always be hope as we move forward on our paths of this journey through life. Prayer may seem like some magic trick or something we just do when we keep the faith then the power of prayer gives us the hope to move forward better and stronger always and forever. There may be some who do not believe or even try to take this from all who may try, but if you do not believe is only because you never truly found that solemn place, nor have you given yourself the chance to have the faith, which leads to you becoming someone for who you truly are not.

Finding that solemn place can be done in many ways, you don’t just need to walk into the house of God once a week, it can be as simple as going into a room in your own house and closing the door, or maybe climbing a mountain not just for the breathe taking views or the posts on your social media platform, but to wander into places never before gone, to be alone with your thoughts, so you can cleanse your mind, body, and soul. True most of the time you will never get an immediate response, but when you keep the faith so you will always have hope, then you will always see the signs before you, as big as a billboard driving down the road.

The way this society is going with the Political Correction, socialism, the taking away everything that is important to all of us, like taking anything religious out of places of public, taking away anything that shows respect for the country in which you live, simply because you have no belief in something, doesn’t mean you have to spoil it for someone else. We all have our own beliefs and just because some may not have the same, does not give you the right to change for the sake of yourself, this practice only shows that you only think of yourself, you have zero cares for anybody around you and shows the lack of respect you have of your Peers, not too mention the fact that you have no hope for anything because of the lack of faith you have in the ” Power of Prayer”.

Prayer allows us to come clean and free ourselves of all chaos and the crap around us, it allows us to stay in touch with our true selves and when we stay true to who we are, then we will never see any hatred anywhere as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Prayer isn’t just about saying ” OH…….. I pray for this one or that one”, Prayer is for each one of us to cleanse our mind, body, and souls, so we can always be true to who we are, keeping to reality without being fake in any way shape or form. The power of prayer is so powerful, that it free’s us from all the crap so we can move forward with strength, but without the faith, you will never feel this power, as then you shall never have any hope for anything along your path, the faith, and the hope go together in this journey and you can not have one without the other.

 

” The power of prayer will heal you from all the ugliness, you just need the faith to have complete hope”

 

” Finding that solemn place can be anywhere that you find peace from all the crap, to be alone with your thoughts to heal your mind, body, and soul”

 

” In this day of all the technology devices and social media, it may seem hard to find that solemn place, but all you need is the faith then the hope will follow”

 

” Unplug from time to time as this will help us all stay true to who we are”

 

 

True country music……. the Gospel of all music

sheryl_crow

 

Country music is not like any other kind of music, all music will set the tone to your mood, with the gangster rap being more aggressive than all other music, country is way more soothing to your mood. Country music is a story put to music, with the writer creating the right words to the story, then the Artist putting music to the words. There have been many more country songs over the years of my life that have influenced greatly, than any other type of music. There have been many stories told through country music talking of this journey through life and with all the different angles of this journey, I am sure there are many more stories to be told through country music.

We all may have our own opinions of country music, but to me, it is the heartbeat of this journey through life, of which we all walk a path. The Artist and the music may have changed throughout the years, but the message and the stories have remained the same, the stories of this journey being put together by some really good country talent. Zak Brown band with a great song called ‘ My old man” then Blake Shelton with the newest ” This is God’s country”, these are just two of the very many country songs out there that will influence you greatly and warm your heart.

Country music past present and future………… There have been so many different Artists within this Genre of music, it makes it hard to remember all, which is why this Genre is the best of all other genres of music. The storytelling is second to none as the singers and the songwriters work their magic by telling us all of the paths through this journey of life. Divorce… already been written and sung, standing by your man… Tammy Wynette has that great,  even a song with red solo cups sung by Toby Kieth, there have been so many great country songs and about so many different topics through this journey, it is hard to keep up on them all, but they are all a joy to dig up and listen to once again.

The beauty of the Earth and all there to explore

Slide 8 of 31: Montana is drowning in beautiful bodies of water, with more than 3,000 lakes and reservoirs across the state. It’s hard to pick the prettiest but we reckon Avalanche Lake just edges into the lead thanks to its crystalline, glacier-fed water, forested shores and the Rocky Mountains, which shimmer in the distance like the most striking wallpaper.

” Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the Earth”

Matthew 5:5

 

Blake Shelton and his new song called God’s Country has it totally correct, with pictures like this proves just that. This picture is taken in Montana and I need to get to this state, so I can totally be one with nature and enjoy all this beauty. Camping, kayaking, and mountains OH MY!!! Montana has it all if your big into the outdoors and exploring all that Mother Nature has to offer and with scenery like this, your days will be full of peace, serenity, and adventure.

I can see myself paddling the kayak up this river, breathing in the cool fresh air and totally taking in everything around me. Mother Nature with all her beauty has so much to offer, but if you do not get out and explore, you will never know just how much you are missing. There is so much more to this journey than just being stuck within the cities, some may take their vacations and go to places where all others go, but to get out where the hands of man have never been………. Now your talking of just how too heal yourself from all the pain and anguish that a city can bring. When your mind gets cluttered with all the crap from everyday life, the only way to clear the mind and heal the body and soul, is too escape within Mother Nature, to get deep within her peace and serenity.

The Grandeur of the mountains in the background gives you the feeling of freedom, the openness of being in the kayak paddling in the water and taking in all that is around you, now you can just feel the stress melting from your body, as you feel lighter and paddle faster from the lightness. There is no better feeling than the stress leaving your body from all the ugliness within your everyday life. As we work our 9 to 5 jobs within this corporate world and being such a fast-paced society, where we need it now mentality comes into play, we really do not take the time to slow down and really look at what is around us anymore. Then you have these so-called Politicians who promise everything but deliver nothing, then add in the fact that some think they have all the answers to everything, but really are clueless and have no real answers to anything, makes for a lot of mixed feelings, cloudy judgments and real pain and hurt of which we all feel. With all this confusion truly shows how much we all need to get out and explore within Mother Nature, not just too see her beauty, but to get out and enjoy the true peace and serenity of this journey through life.

As we walk our paths through this journey and within this broken society, we all get so caught up in the ugliness, the hatred, and the chaos, too the point that we let the clouds of our judgments control of who we truly are, we become so comfortable within our own little ruts that we don’t get out to explore, simply because we don’t want any more pain and hurt coming to us, we try so hard to keep the ugliness at bay from us, that we forget just how much beauty this journey truly has and even when we do get out, because we have been so consumed with all the ugliness and chaos, we truly have no idea of how too really enjoy all the beauty around us, we still rush around thinking we have to be ahead of all else, even as there is nobody around us except for maybe some wildlife, who to them this beauty is their home. This journey through life has so much to offer and as we live within the cities, is just a small fraction of the journey, as we think we are seeing everything? The only way to see everything this journey has to offer is too get out and explore all the true beauty within Mother Nature, so we then can heal our mind, bodies, and souls, from all the corruption, the hatred, the ugliness and the chaos from within this broken society.

 

” To truly fix this broken society we all have to be on the same page and we all need to heal from the crap, to be of who we truly are”

” Paddling a kayak through the beauty of mother nature, there is really nothing better along this journey of life”

” We are so lucky in this country for the freedom that some have died fighting for, yet we forget this fact simply because we get so caught up in the ugliness”

” There are so many pro and cons to this journey that if we do not truly understand, we will never see all the true beauty all around us”
