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”

Face all Fears with confidence through the Love

” Perfect love cast out fear”

John 4:18

” It is only the fear of God that can deliver us from the fear of man”

The only Cleric to sign the Declaration of Independence

John Witherspoon

Emotions may come and go, but we must never let them mislead us along the paths we walk. Feelings also may come and go, but the commitment will always stay, the commitment will keep us true to Jesus Christ, as well as having true faith, even at our most vulnerable times, and will keep away negative emotions like, doubt and fear. Jesus Christ chose the cross, forever committing himself to us, So let’s chose, on the front end, to be equally committed to him, no matter what trials or tragedies may come.

Fear will come to each of us at very different times, it will take full control as well. There are many different fears we will face, but none of them, with the true faith and commitment to Jesus Christ, that we can not conquor. A fear of anything is mostly of the unknown, and not truly knowing of what may be next to come, as we move forward through the fear. You climb a mountain and at the summit you are within the clouds of a storm, there is lightening all around you, and your hair on your head is standing straight up, from all the electric energy around you? This is a fear of not knowing where thr next lightening strike will be, and hopefully not a direct hit on the top of your head? You gain confidence with these types of fears, simply by knowing the right thing to do and taking shelter in a spot away from anywhere, that will reduce the chances of that direct hit.

Fear will also come from any unknown, like for instance, camping off the grid, in an area with no service, no runing water, no utilities, where you rely on a propane lantern or a campire to see at night. You are surrounded by thick forest and the night sky makes for a tough view at night, plus not knowing what is within the forest and fearing what may slip out of the forest, as it has you on alert, for every little sound or crackling of branches, within the thick forest. This type of camping will have you take the action of being prepared, while you are deep within mother nature, but with the true commitment in Jesus Christ and the faith in him, will give you all the hope for a safe time, to be had. Fear of the unknown is the biggest fear that will come to us all, and it will change you in many different ways, but if we handle this fear correctly, always keeping the faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, then there will be no fear we can not get through. Fear will bring the dark clouds of doubt over our heads, as they will not last and the light will be over us soon enough, with the true faith and commitment in Jesus Christ.

Through the fear of God, is the hope we will have to get through all the other fears we have. God is the one that can get us out of the darkness and into the light, but sometimes we fear God for the wrong reseasons, we let the other fears control us so much, that now we do not focus on what is real, then try to move forward in our own little made up realities, to try to escape into the fake world and try to be safe along our paths. Fear will have us bury our true selves deep within, as now we portray this fake self, so others around us will see us as okay? Once we are in this fake world, it becomes harder to escape that and get back to reality, cause now we have become conditioned with a fake feeling of security. This is when we need to truly keep the true faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, as he will guide us out of the darkness of the fear and into the light of God, so we all can walk our paths in peace, within the true joy of this journey.

We only fear God because, we have become conditioned from the darkness of the other fears and have lost the faith and the commitment of Jesus Christ. So many of us have walked away from the house of God, which is what leads us down this path of other fears around us. This leads us to the paths of many temptations, which will bring us these fears, and now without the visit into the house of God, we then try to walk through the darkness on our own, with no other around, to help us in the time of need. Just by looking into the deep forest, you may never see any other type of wildlife, but there are many types that live deep inside the forest, and when not prepared, it will make for a difficult time ahead. You learn with the faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, just how to move forward with each step, to overcome those fears, as now you can walk through the darkness of the forest and get back to the light of your camp, get back to familiar area and the comfort it brings, so you can step out of the darkness, as the light from the moon and the stars, light up the night sky, as you sit by the campfire and see all the true beauty all around you.

” Fear is within us all, it will take full control as well, it will bring us many temptations, and deeper into the unknown of the fear”

“When the darkness of the fear takes hold of us, it is the faith and commitment of Jesus Christ, that helps us out of the darkness and into the light of salvation”

The many Changes throughout this journey of life

” God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble”

Psalm 46:1

” Lord may every earthly loss serve to lead me to the cross, whatever good things come and go in this life, let the cry of my heart always be, ” God is all I need””

Billy Graham

Throughout this journey of life, there will be so many changes that will cross our paths, they will have our heads spinning, and even so much, we will then become so confused, we get lost with which direction to go. The loved ones that we lose, the friendships that get lost, these are just two of the changes we face, that will change who we are or become, there are so many other changes and very different changes from each other, that no wonder why we of this society have become so broken and confused, not too mention the fact that, we have lost who we truly are as well.

These two pictures I have here, are of the same quarry, but two different looks into the quarry. This is a slate quarry within the state of Vermont, back in a time way before ours within this society, these slate quarries were happening, and a thriving industry, settlements, and townships were created around these quarries, just so they had the labor to keep mining these quarries. Now, these quarries are not so thriving and a lot of the townships, have become Ghost towns, for us to explore as we wish. Back within this time, they did not have the technology of today, but if you explore these Ghost towns, it makes you wonder, just how they built up these towns, with many of the buildings still standing today. Those back in these times really knew how to build, and as I look at some of the buildings of today, those from that time, have built a better product than those of today. Makes you really think of, just how out of focus we have become, simply because of all the power, control, and greed.

Each society throughout this journey is supposed to be better than the last, I get that, but in so many ways, we of this society have taken so many steps backward, than we have taken forward. With all the technology at our fingertips today, but yet how dumb we have become as well, yes, we have some of the smartest minds among us, but as they step out of their labs, they then become so dumb within everyday life. We all want to either invent or be part of the next best thing so bad, that now we lose sight of all the everyday things and not just lose sight, but now we look at all those around us as, not being on the same level as each other anymore. I get that some may be more gifted than others, the IQ of some may be higher than others, but that does not mean, we are different than each other. It is totally on us the people of this society, that this great technology we have, has in some ways, knocked us backward, instead of forward.

Just like in societies of the past, not everybody had a hand in the next best thing, the problem within this society is, we get so jealous of each other for this, that now hatred for one another comes into play, and when hatred gets involved, now you add in a whole different beast, that will grab a hold of us and bring us into a world so ugly, that now we all become someone for who we are not, just to try to avoid all the pain and hurt that will come to us as well. You have leaders of countries today, that are so focused on world dominance, that they will do anything they can to get away with, just so they can achieve this. They do not care who they hurt, maim, or kill either, they want all the power, control, and greed they can get, and when they get it, then we all will suffer such great pain, that none of us will be of who we truly are anymore.

Sumer, located within Mesopotamia, was the first known society of Mankind. There have been many societies within Mankind, but we of this society, have become so out of focus lately, that we think we are the first and only society, that really matters throughout this journey of life. I have a newsflash for you, sometimes it is okay to glance back, not just to see what happened back then, but to see where we once were, so we can fix what we need to fix, in order to move forward better and stronger. Each society throughout this journey, is so very different from one another, that sometimes we need to see what they did, whether right or wrong, so we don’t fall into the same traps they fell into as they moved forward. Some of the Engineers back then, in some ways, were as smart or even smarter than the ones of today. but like all other societies throughout this journey, we all go through many changes as well, and when we do not accept and adapt, to these changes correctly, this is what makes or breaks the entire society, not to mention, the people within the society that want nothing for each other, but everything for themselves.

There were many people in each society, this society is no different than those societies in that respect, which goes to a good point, it is the people of each society and the actions they take, that will either make or break a society. Then you add into the equation of, power, control, and greed, now you have a beast so big, and so strong, that it may seem like we are doomed at whatever we do within the society. We of this society are at such a crossroad right now, we totally think that some will achieve this world dominance? Well, that is determined if we the people step up to the plate, wake up to the coffee of life, look the Bully square in the eyes, so we can put the fear of God right back into them, so they cower away like the true coward they are. You want to think or be better than the previous society? then step up to the plate, accept and adapt properly to all the changes that come our way, so we can end this great divide that divides us so much, to truly move forward and be better and stronger than the previous society. This journey through life isn’t all about me, it is about us, and how I can contribute, so we can totally be better for it, then just maybe this society in the name of God, can truly be, the best society moving forward. We have all the tools to do it, now it is on we the people, and our actions toward one another, that will determine our fate, as we move forward along our paths, through this journey of life.

” Change is something that none of us can avoid, which is why it becomes so much on how we accept and adapt to the change moving forward”

” Each society throughout this journey has had their greatness as well as their downfalls, that’s why we need to learn from the bad to be at our greatest”

Ask the right way…and you shall receive

” Whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them”

Mark 11:24

God delights in the prayers of his children, prayers that express our love for him, prayers that share our deepest burdens with him, don’t pray casually or thoughtlessly, “but come boldly to the throne of grace, that you might obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need”

Hebrews 4:16

Very few within this society of today, truly know how to pray anymore. When we do not hear back from Jesus Christ after we pray, we then in our own minds, think he does not exist as he does not answer us, or even when we do pray, we do so like, you need to give me this or that? We do not pray anymore from our heart, which let’s our heart communicate with the heart of Jesus, within this fast paced society, we also don’t take the time to truly pray as we should anymore. Jesus does answer when we pray deeply from the heart, showing complete faith in him, we just have to open our hearts truly to him, while we watch for the signs he sends us.

Prayer is like, when the tears flow from our eyes, it cleanses us within our hearts and our souls. Prayer helps us heal from our pains, so we can move forward as we walk our paths of this journey through life. We all will go through much pain and hurt within our lives, so if we do not have that special place to go, that will help us heal from the pain, we then let the pain affect us in so many ways, that we then stop being of who we truly are, in order to rid ourselves of the pain, our hearts go cold with doubt, instead of being warm with the love of Jesus. When we pray correctly and with the faith in Jesus, we will hear him communicate with us, very deeply within our hearts and souls, as his blood flows freely within us.

Prayer is that secret communication between you and Jesus Christ, nobody else has to know what you said in secret, it is just you having the faith in Jesus, so you can listen within your heart, to heal properly from your pains, and heal properly, to be better and stronger moving forward. With any kind of pain comes scars, these scars may remind us of the pain, but these scars should never stop us from walking our paths with confidence, nor should they stop us from having the true faith in Jesus Christ, or even the faith in ourselves, as we move forward within this journey.

This society of today, with all the ugliness and the hatred, is all the proof you need, of just how we all have wandered away from the power of prayer, we are attacking one another at every turn, we use this ” Political Correction” to hide from one another, as we fear more of offending one another, but why do we then attack each other, if we fear to offend? This is a question that only we ourselves can answer, and the answer is deep within, just that we fear to reach down that deep. This political correction has stopped us from being truly of who we are, and it has made us all weak as well, it has turned us into being a sheep of this society, only to follow only those so-called leaders in place now, that are only leading down a path of destruction and turmoil. It is time we all rip of the sheepskin, and get back to being the Shepard that Jesus taught us, when he came to us and walked this journey with us.

With the faith in Jesus Christ, and the faith in the power of prayer, we all can get back to who we truly are, we can escape the clutches of Satan, as with prayer and something Satan does not believe also, the good will always defeat evil, but without the faith, we will never get to any hope, which will help us all step out of the darkness of evil, and into the light of good.

Good solid prayer that we have complete faith in, does a lot more than just being a secret communication tool with Jesus Christ. Prayer will help us heal properly moving forward, as we escape all the pains and the hurts that come to us throughout this journey through life, it will keep us grounded to be who we are, without hiding deep within ourselves, it will keep all the evil spirits away, as it releases the power of the Holy Spirit, that is deep within our souls. With the power of the Holy Spirit within us all, and shining that guiding light in front of us, will lead us from temptation, and to the path of righteousness, which now we all can walk our paths in peace, while moving forward in the joy, that this journey is all about.

” The view from the top of the mountain may take your breathe away, but it also brings you closer to Jesus Christ and the power of prayer for us all”

” As the Eagle sits a top his favorite tree in search of his next fish to catch, so to does Jesus sit above us all, to bring us into the world of good and away from evil”

The many journeys

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” We all walk a path through this journey of life, we tend to forget that along the path are many smaller journeys that make up the bigger journey for us to be better and stronger moving forward”

***BowlingChef***

We all have our own likes and dislikes, and the only way for us to find out what they are, is to explore everything around us, so we can find out just what those likes and dislikes really are. There are so many things to chat about in order to determine what you like or dislike? The only one that can determine this, is you yourself. others may support you, or they may guide you, but ultimately, it is you, who truly knows what you like or dislike, as others can only speculate, or simply just give you ideas.

Yes we all walk this big journey called life, but within this journey are so many paths to choose from, we can become so overwhelmed, that quite frequently we will choose the wrong path, and as we keep choosing many paths, can and will become so lost within this big journey, that we then stop walking and start wandering, with no true direction of where we are going? It is okay to explore other paths, as this is the way we find what is the true path for us, not everybody will walk the same path, as we all have very different likes and dislikes. Yes we need to explore each path to find out if it is the right path, but when we get to deep into the path and lose sight of how to get back to the crossroad that turned us down this path, now we become lost along this journey, as now the clouds of our judgments have clouded what is in front of us.

This journey through life will also throw us curve balls, it will also have these life events that come to us. These events are very different to each of us, they are also either very hard to deal with or very miniscule and easy to deal with, yes they can control us as well, and when we let them control us, now we become someone for who we truly are not. These life events are part of life and yes they can come to us by another, who want nothing but to control us moving forward. So as you become lost within this journey, the only way to truly find your way back, is to keep exploring other paths, and stop hiding within yourself, for this does nothing but keep you wandering, without truly walking a path of this journey through life.

Everybody has their own way of dealing with the ups and downs this journey brings to us, some may find different ways to explore and clean the cobwebs that life will bring to us, for me, I love the outdoors and exploring all it has, plus the getting away from the rat race for even a short time, helps with the healing of the mind, body and soul. Mother Nature has her way of giving you a different outlook of what is around you. It is when you do not explore what life has out there, now you continue down a path, that is not really for you, and you then become bitter and unhappy, as you walk through this journey. The more bitter you become, the more hatred you develop, as you can clearly see all the hatred within this society we all walk our paths within.

Hiking, off grid camping, kayaking, these are great outlets to totally relax and clear the cobwebs, now true some may not like these, but there are so many more outlets, you just have to explore and find the right outlet for you. These outlets will help us refocus, determine things we have forgotten about, so we can get to truly of who we are, then get back to walking with confidence, along the path of this journey through life. Now some may not want us to remember any history, but it is the history we need to remember, so we don’t repeat it moving forward, plus it is the history, that helps us glance back and fix what we need to fix, as we move forward better and stronger, while we escape within Mother Nature and heal ourselves, not too mention, look at all the true beauty all around you.

Look out into the horizon, it may seem endless at first glance, but as we grow and learn correctly along this journey, we find many horizons for us to explore. Whether your looking at a horizon from the top of a mountain, as you paddle a kayak along the river, or maybe sit along the sandy shoreline and staring into the ocean, the place we look into the horizon may be different, as each path we walk, but the horizon is all the same, just like this journey through life we all walk together. There are so many similarities all around us, but if we do not truly see them, then all will always be different, no matter how we look at them. When your path is full of bumps that will bruise you and leave a scar, it becomes all about how you get up from the fall, dust yourself off, heal the bruises correctly, so you than can move forward better then you were. Some may get right back up like nothing happened, while others either never get up, or take a very long time to get up, it is not about the time it takes you to get up, it is about how you get up from the fall, how you stay true to who you are, without hiding within yourself, and never really reaching your true potential.

There are so many little journeys within the even bigger journey we all walk, the key, is for us all to explore and find the right one that best fits us, then excel within that journey, so we can be truly of who we are, so when we walk our path we choose, we actually do the work of clearing that path of the obstructions, so we can move forward better and stronger, within the peace and happiness we all so need and deserve, as we walk through this journey of life.

” This journey comes with many ups and downs that will knock you down and bruise you, which then makes it of how you pick yourself up and heal from the bruises of life”

” Just as you look deeply into the Abyss, look deeply into the horizon and ask yourself, of just how to get to that point and explore all that comes before you”

A True Pioneer

A true Pioneer is not someone who sits within the walls of a legislative room and complains or attacks another, a Pioneer is not someone who lies, cheats and calls themselves the Boss, nor does a Pioneer step on the shine of another, while they step over them, and as they think they are better than the rest. A true Pioneer with their blood, sweat and tears, works very hard at not only perfecting their craft, but making it possible for others to walk behind them, along the path that they have chosen. There have been many Pioneer’s that has graced the ground of this great country, the United States of America. They are great in their own way and as humble as they are, will never throw it back at you, like they are the greatest over all others, who walk their paths of this journey through life.

A Pioneer of anything, no matter what it may be, will go all in at what they are doing with never a doubt in their abilities, yes very true they will want to quit when the going gets tough, but a true pioneer has no idea what the word ” Quit” is, so they learn from their mistakes, learn from what doesn’t work, to fix those things and make them work, so they can keep moving forward. These tools in the picture, were from a whole different era, an era that if you didn’t work hard, then you were sleeping on the ground with no roof over your head and no food to eat. These tools had to be created by someone and that someone was a Pioneer and one who, made the Farmer’s life that much easier. The Farmer’s that walked their paths after these tools were created, actually walked a path that was groomed by a Pioneer, This is what a true Pioneer does, and will do it cause they want to, without looking for any fanfare or applaud by anyone.

Rush Limbaugh was a true Pioneer, a guy who paved the way for so many, in the world of Radio broadcasting. Rush worked tirelessly to become ” the voice”, Rush was a humble man, who found his voice in front of the microphone, In his own way, he could figure out in just what direction to go at any time, even though many either hated or loved him, he never judged, he never attacked, but he did have that way to, lead you into the world of right and wrong, even when you had no clue of what was right or wrong. Rush paved the path for so many, even when the far left liberal media stood in the way. Rush had a special way of communicating and when he talked, everybody listened, and it didn’t matter what side you were on. The hatred by some of Rush, came from the fact that they couldn’t get to him and that made some very angry, so instead of learning from him, they attacked him at every turn, but even through the attacks, Rush would come out smelling like a Rose, he would never hold that against you and continue to help and teach, to anybody that wanted to listen. Rush no matter how much tiresome he got, no matter of all the doubters, or the blood, sweat and tears, he never would quit, he kept moving forward, to which is why talk radio is so big today. Rush Limbaugh was one of America’s greatest Pioneers, there have been many Pioneers, but I am glad he was the one during my time here, as I walk my path, through this journey of life.

A Pioneer is someone who blazes a trail for others to follow, there may be another one among us, his name is Elon Musk. With his cars of Tesla and his Rockets in Space X, he may just be the one, who will get to the planet of Mars before all others. With all the chit chat of the Legislators, Elon just shuts out the noise and keeps moving forward to blaze the trail. If you look at Elon as a child, you would think it is two different people, he worked tirelessly and hard, through the blood, sweat and tears, sound familiar? It should, because Elon Musk will be yet another of America’s Pioneer’s. Now these so-called Politicians within the walls of Washington DC, will sit in their chairs of the Senate or Congress and argue of whatever they want, with each other, but if it was not for the true Pioneer’s, we may never of had this great country of America? These are the facts of life, if you do not agree with these facts, then maybe you should step aside, so the real American can walk in the paths of the Pioneer’s, to help make this country great again. It takes a great Pioneer to blaze a trail, not some trust fund baby, that sits within the Walls of a Government to argue with anybody they see, A true Pioneer works their tail off, so the rest of us do not have to, then when that Pioneer is taken from us, some disrespect him? It is time some wake up out of their denial, so we together in unity, can follow the paths of the great Pioneer’s, to make this country better and stronger moving forward, not become some puppet for another countries leader’s, We all walk a path through this journey of life, so we all can be at peace in happiness, not so we can fuel the fire of hatred, bringing much ugliness to each other.

” A true Pioneer blazes a trail for us all to follow easily, not to sit and argue with hatred”

” There are Pioneer’s then there are trust fund babies, the difference is like night and day”

” The tools of any trade may differ, it’s the right tools that help blaze the trail moving forward”

There are shows…then there is NCIS

tunnel vision

Navel Criminal Intelligence Service, aka…NCIS. A law enforcement agency within the Navy, but also the best show on TV also. These Writer’s that write for this show, are the best writer’s of any show. They know just how to engage an audience, captivate the audience, not too mention, know how to keep you in complete suspense from episode to episode. The Writer’s for this show also have a great grasp of reality, as they show this with each episode they write. The last episode they were so in touch with true reality, they have written it into an episode, by having one of the characters suffer grief from the death of a spouse, not just a normal death, but a death from a virus that has engulfed us all today, by showing what so many of us are going through, when a loved on dies from this virus, and does so private, that the immediate family, can not have a funeral for the person. We all have suffered a loss of a loved one, at one time or another, but if you do not grieve correctly, or you do not have proper closure, then no matter who you are, you will suffer even greater in the long run, till you face the grief head on.

The Writer’s of NCIS has taken many plot twists, and spun them as close to reality as you can get, without actually being reality. These Writers definitely have their fingers on the pulse of the heartbeat of reality. As an inspiring writer myself, I would love to be a fly on the wall, within the room of these writers, These writer’s know how to captivate an audience, which is what a true writer can do, unlike the so-called writer’s within the walls of the fake news media of today. Some of the Actor’s from the beginning of the show have since left, most of us have wondered how they will continue with new Actors in place, but they have done a great job with that, plus with the true fans still chatting of the ones past. For a great show to survive with longevity, even when some Actor’s have left, as long as some key parts stay and the Writer’s stay the same, with their great content, this is how the great shows stand out from all others.

The Writer’s of NCIS are so creative, and are so in touch with reality, each episode never becomes boring or stale, they keep the fans on the edge of their seat with suspense, they make sure the fans have a box of tissues by their side, they take what is happening in todays society and write them into their plots, then the Actor’s as they totally believe in what they are reading in the script, act out their part, like they are walking their path through this journey of life, with the rest of us on their side. NCIS may be a real Agency within our Government, but the TV show NCIS, is as real as the Agency, with the Writer’s doing what they do best, to keeping their audience captivated from one episode to another.

True feelings and emotions, we all have them deep within, and is what the Writer’s of NCIS write with. when you tear up from a television show, you know you have just watched a great show and will remember each episode, plus when the repeats air on another station, you stop and watch with vigor, just as if it were the real show live. This is what makes a great show, now there have been a handful of other shows as well, but these Writer’s of NCIS, are second to none and show this from one episode to another. When a writer of anything can captivate you, can make you tear up and show emotion, this what a great writer is, another great writer who knows how to captivate his audience is, Stephen King. I don’t know if you have read any of his books, or seen the movies? but he to knows how to draw you in, with feelings of a different kind.

Just like in the business world like owning a restaurant, it is the server’s who sell the place, the cooks who make it reality for the owners, well on a good TV show, it’s the Actors who sell the show with their acting, so the Writer’s can do what they do best and captivate their audience. The Writer’s of NCIS are like no other, they are so in touch with reality, its like we all are living reality through them. I know that all good things do end, but it will be a very sad day, when this show is no longer around. Gibbs is the main character and has become like a father to us all, so hopefully he lives a long and great life, as when he does go, then we all will be grieving, as we have lost our favorite Actor, that has become like a father to us all. Then we all will be suffering a great loss, much like the last episode, as Jimmy lost his wife to this virus, and now has to try to move forward without her, and in a way unimaginable, alone with no funeral to honor and respect her, in the proper way. Death is a very sad thing we all deal with, not just in our own way, but death is something that, when not dealt with properly, will change us into something we truly are not. Nobody ever wants to lose a loved one, but we all go through it at some point, and death is part of each of us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” There are many alphabet agencies within our Government, but none better than NCIS”

” There are Writers then there are great Writers, who make you truly feel your true feelings and emotions”

” There are tv shows then there is NCIS, which is a show that is leaps and bounds above all the rest”

The Super bowl now has seven rings

” The journey to the top of the mountain, is a strenuous one, much like reaching the pinnacle of your career, within the world of sports”

*** BowlingChef***

Super Bowl Sunday, we all witnessed an Individual setting the bar so high, at the position he play’s, that we may never in our lifetimes, see this done again. I am not saying it will never be duplicated, but this kind of stuff is a once in a lifetime kind of stuff. Tom Brady is the Quarter Back, and he is greatness personified. Tom was drafted by the New England Patriots in the 6th round, at pick number 199? So to say this was predicted is not even in the mention, nobody could of predicted this, not even Tom himself. Tom worked very hard everyday to perfect his craft, not just in the Pro’s, but even as a young child, now it is true that, he might of been a gifted Athlete, seeing he was also drafted in baseball as well, but this gift just doesn’t happen, as the Individual needs to put the work in, to perfect the craft he seeks. We all, if we put in the work, can achieve some success in whatever we want, maybe not quite like Tom, but we also can be successful at whatever we want.

When Tom was here in New England, we all know about his work ethnic, he was first in the building in the morning, and last to leave in the evening, he studied multiple tapes and video, time in the gym, on the practice field, many reps at everything it took, to make him perfect his craft. Tom’s greatness did not happen overnight, it took a lot of years, starting from a very young age. This wasn’t all him, as when he was young, he needed great support from his family, especially from his Mom and Dad, They could of steered him in a different direction, but instead, they guided him to follow his passion, and we all know just how much passion, Tom has for the sport of football.

Passion is deep within us all, but if we do not release it, we will never know our true potential. We all work our current 9 to 5’s, but how many of us have a true passion for what we do? Exactly!!! not many and Tom Brady is one that does. Not having passion for what we do, explains all the bitterness out there, the jealousy of each other, which then is followed by the hate of each other. You seen all the big smiles and then followed by big joy after the game by the Buccaneer’s, this was from them achieving their passion and becoming the winner of the Super Bowl, as the NFL’s best team. Then you saw sorrow, sadness, bitterness, some forgetting about the passion and letting their emotions, take them to a very ugly place, just because they didn’t win the Super Bowl, sports can be very emotional on both sides, whether happy or sad, this is what the competitive nature of each player, will bring to each other.

Being competitive is what gives each player, the drive to bring out the passion of their craft, this is how great players are made, and how they achieve the greatness within their sport. The ones who have no drive, or have no competitive spirit, these are the ones who do not last in the sport they play, guys like Tom Brady, Zedna Chara, Patrice Bergeron to name a few, totally have the drive and competitive spirit, not to mention, the passion of the game they play. You can not teach this passion, it is totally up to the player to let the passion, flow throughout their blood. The hard work, the drive, the enjoyment of what you do, the competition, are all the factors, of what it takes to release the passion throughout your veins, as it turns to the blood and who you become moving forward.

Sometimes the mountain top may seem to high, or maybe too difficult and you just walk away from attempting it, but if you do not attempt it, if you do not find the competition in it, if you can not find the passion to take that first step, now you will never see the true beauty that the summit holds for you, you will never let any passion, flow through your veins, as it turns into the blood that drives you everyday. Tom Brady has become more then just a 7 time Super Bowl Champion, more than just an Individual on a field playing a game, more than a person that works very hard to succeed at his craft, Tom has become an Icon to not just all of us, but an Icon for the many children looking up to him and to try to be like him, and even more, he has become an inspiration to us all, from this point on, as he as well as all of us, move forward, on our paths, throughout this journey of life.

” The journey to the top is never easy, but with hard work and passion, anything will seem easy over time”

” Passion is deep within us all and when we unleash it, the sky is the limit as to what we can achieve”

Advent…The coming of Jesus Christ

Digital Camera

” Why do you let us wander, O Lord, from your ways, and harden our hearts so that we fear you not?… Behold, you are angry, and we are sinful, all of us have become like unclean people”.

Isaiah 63:17;64:4

We of this society are completely in the darkness of this storm, and this year of 2020 has darkened the clouds greatly. The weeks of Advent leading to the coming of Jesus Christ on Christmas day, is all about the Hope, the love, the Joy, and the peace, all elements that we as a society have lost, and especially during this year of 2020. We have let the hatred and the ugliness consume us so much, that we do not look at the little things anymore, it’s the little things that have become so unimportant to us, because we look for that big homerun, and forget that it is the base hits that win the game. Because we have let the darkness cloud our judgments, we don’t look for those little things anymore, we don’t look at the big picture, or what is right in front of us, instead we reach for the bright and shiny, so we then shy away from putting in any kind of work, that will help us move forward out of the darkness.

With this Advent is not just the coming of Jesus, it is a magical time of year as well, the magic comes when we have true faith, which then gives us the hope moving forward, then when we truly feel the warmth of love within our hearts, then the empathy within us shines brightly, then as our paths shine a bit of light, the joy brightens even further the path, as through joy comes happiness, and when we are happy, now Jesus is happy and finally the light comes, with the darkness slipping away, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Faith, Love, Joy and Happiness plus the complete faith in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, these are the ingredients that help the magic, which helps us heal, so the dark clouds can be lifted, and replaced with the bright light of the path of righteousness. Sometimes through the darkness, we just can’t see clearly of what is right in front of us, we become lost and become someone who we truly are not, we hide a big piece of who we are, just to keep from being hurt with real pain, but when we let faith work it’s magic, now the hope will brighten us up, to feel the love and be happy, so we then can be finally in peace, leaving all the ugliness behind.

Jesus Christ came to us on Christmas day, he walked this journey here with us and taught us many things, he shared his love for us and sacrificed himself for us as well, Jesus died for every one of us, no matter of who you are, and with the way 2020 has gone, this is how we pay him back? We let the ugliness, the hatred and the corruption consume us so….. We have become so divided of one another, that we can’t even look each other in the eye, we all need to stop dwelling in the past, so we all can move forward in peace, and with this being the first day of Advent, may we all dig deep, find that true faith, that will give us great hope, so we can be filled with love within our hearts, as the empathy fills our souls, then as our hearts become warm once again, let the Joy bring us much happiness, so as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we all can be at peace, as Jesus becomes proud of us once again and the magic of this special time of year, reaches us all, to heal us better and stronger moving forward.

” Hope, Love, Joy and Peace are all part of the Advent season and what brings the magic of Christmas to us all”

” The love of Jesus Christ is always within our hearts and keeps us warm, but when we don’t acknowledge this love, our hearts become cold”

The Swamp Creatures within to release its great talents

You think by the title I may write of the swamp within Washington DC? Why waste two great pictures within Mother Nature. Even Mother Nature has swamps within it, the difference is, mother nature takes care of them so they can thrive, within Washington DC, the ones within that swamp only takes care of themselves and totally forgets of all those around them. Not that I want many getting out within mother nature to take away all the beauty I come across on my journey’s, but within this screwed up society only proves further that, a high percentage of us, have totally forgotten and taken for granted, all the true beauty within mother nature.

No matter where you go within mother nature, there is so much beauty with every turn, not just all the plant life, or the landscapes, but there are many wild animals that roam within mother nature, these animals call mother nature their home, just like we have homes and want others to respect our homes, we to need to respect their homes, while we are out there within mother nature. The beauty of mother nature is everywhere around us, even as we drive to our jobs, but sadly we take this so for granted, that we do not look at it as being within mother nature, instead, because we are so caught up in all the ugliness, we see no beauty.

With another Veterans day upon us, let us take the time to thank a Veteran, for it is the veterans that keep us free to do as we want within this country, there are some that do show respect to our Veterans, but there are some who totally take them for granted, as not only do they not thank a Veteran, but they can’t see what they do for each and every one of us. A real Veteran will never see a swamp and see it as ugly, he will do what he has to, in order to clean it, so it’s future will be nothing but beauty for all.

“The one who had received five talents came forward bringing the additional five. He said, Master, you gave me five talents. See, I have made five more”

Mt: 25;20

We all in this society and as we walk through this journey, have special talents, we all have a purpose as we walk this journey, but unless we find that purpose, we will never unlock the talents that are within us, and without the purpose, we then will never not only show our talents, but we will never bring our talents to the next level, like building more talents upon the talents that are already within us. In order to truly find your purpose and your talents, you need the confidence within you and the confidence in Jesus Christ, so you can move forward along this journey and find that purpose, the problem within this society is a lot of us have lost that confidence and have lost of who we truly are, while we are all lost and within the clouds of our judgments, we will never see any beauty around us, we become full of fear that brings us much pain, as we never see us for who we are, we will never see anything around for what it truly is as well.

This journey through life is like that when we do not take care of ourselves as we should, when we truly take care of ourselves, fix what we need to fix, not only will we ourselves be better moving forward, everything around us will become better as well. This year of 2020 has been a very challenging year in so many different ways, with all the ugliness that has come across all our paths through this journey, proves that we all need to take care of ourselves, so we then move forward with each other, to become better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

When we take care of ourselves and see the talents within us that Jesus has supplied us with, we will then find that confidence that he sees in us, and bring that confidence out, to let the talents shine brightly as we walk our paths, as now those talents will help us achieve many more talents throughout our lives. The success for each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life is endless, with the confidence in ourselves as well as Jesus Christ, then all our talents will shine as bright as the sun on it’s best day, which will then have us find many more talents to shine even brighter, so we all can move forward in the peace and happiness, that Jesus showed us when he came and walked this journey here with us.

We all have talents within us, these talents will help us find our purpose here within this journey, then as we find this purpose and our talents within, we will then find that there are many more talents for us to unlock within this journey as well, all we need is to have that confidence in ourselves, that confidence in Jesus Christ as well, so as we walk this journey through life, then the true success for each of us will be endless and all this ugliness we see today will disappear, as there will be no room for it to exist anymore. Just as Mother Nature has it’s true beauty for us to see, there is no better beauty than the beauty within each of us, especially when we are confident, release our true talents, and have found our purpose in life, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” A true talent goes a lot deeper then any kind of sporting or singing type of talent”

” The beauty of mother nature is definitely beautiful, but the beauty within us all is so much more precious and special”
