A picture with no words…………

Slide 17 of 18: Source:  Newseum

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words? With this picture from the London Times, there are no words. This picture was in the London Times twenty four hours after that tragic day of 9/11/2001. Change will come to each of us as we walk our paths through this journey of life and at different times to each of us, with such a tragic event, change comes to all of us at the same time and so wide spread.

The New York skyline has been changed forever to all of us throughout this world, not just we here in America have been affected by this event, so many worldwide have been affected as well. So many either have perished or are still feeling the effects from this tragic day. America will never feel the same as when we grew up before this tragic time.

For many of us within the last seventeen years, we will never forget where we were, nor what we were doing at the exact times of, not just when the Towers were struck, but when they crumbled to the ground in ruin. With each passing year from this tragic event and the change that has come, the pain will always be there, we just have to learn and change, of how we deal with it, so we than can move forward, better and stronger, to let peace and love overwhelm us, instead of what we see now, in all the ugliness and hatred.

Scars will mark us and remind us of times in our lives, that have brought much pain and tears, but these same scars do not have to stop us from moving forward better and stronger. Scars are the band aid that covers the open wounds, so the wound can heal us from the pain, without the scars then the pain and the bleeding will never stop, leaving us with no where to turn from the tragedies, the scars, the pain and the tears, are how we heal correctly and stay truly of who we are, which is full of the love of God, to share with each other as we walk through this journey of life.

The clouds of dust covering a portion of the city within the state of  New York, showing us just  how fragile everything around us is, where all that we build and in the blink of an eye, it all comes crashing down, leaving not just pain and tears among us, but a void within us all, that will always be there, no matter what we do to try to fill that void. Then as the dust lifts and everything becomes more clear, we then have no words, as the tears cover our faces, from seeing all the devastation and the rubble from such a tragedy. Through such a tragedy we witnessed so many helping others, that is truly of who we are, it’s all the other crap in this society just forces us to become someone for for we are not. America has changed forever and this is not the same America that I grew up within.

Change is all around us as we walk our paths of this journey and as we remember such a tragic event that 9/11 was, truly shows us that change can and will effect us in so many ways, there are various stages of change, with an event like 9/11, being as drastic as drastic can be, true there are some change being real suttle and barely noticeable, but no matter of the stage of change, we need to adapt and accept all change, so we than can move forward better and stronger.

The tears from the tragic event of 9/11 may have flooded our face, but the scars and the pain will never leave us even as we change, the scars and the pain will forever be within us, these scars then become a reminder of a terrible time, so we can change what we need to change, as we move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey through life in the peace and happiness, that God envisions for each of us, only if we loved one another more, then the hate that is around us now will disappear, so we all can be at peace, in all we do throughout this journey.

 

” America has changed forever and will never be the same as we once knew it when we grew up”

” Through the tears comes pain and you can’t get rid of the pain without the tears”

” A picture is worth a thousand words, but with some pictures, there are no words”

” When you don’t adapt and except change, then change can bring great pain and tears”

True words never die, as fake words have no true meaning

” The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of God stands forever”

Isaiah 40:8

 

 

The word of God is set in stone, the problem then lies with we the people, as we have totally lost the faith and the true feeling of God’s love deep within our souls. We the people…………. Especially those within the left Bias media, would rather either make up words, or twist around others spoken words, just so they can fit it into their agenda of ” Fake News”, simply because the true words will not put the big money within their pockets, so they can live their exotic and plush lifestyles.

Then there is we the people who hide within ourselves and make up words, just to stay hidden from all that is around them, or like those Vultures who attend the Press Briefings within the walls of the White House at 1600 Pennsylvania avenue, who will think nothing, to twisting around the spoken word, so they than can bring even more unwanted drama within this already drama driven Society.

Let’s not forget those who get voted into an office by we the people, they to will spin the spoken word in any way they can, so they than can win our votes, as they get voted into and proceed to turn their backs on those who have given them their Golden Opportunity. Those so called Politicians who would rather turn their backs on, argue with, instead of actually doing the job for which they were voted in to do, should vacate the walls within the office they hold, simply because they to are doing nothing, but bringing even more unwanted drama, to an already drama ridden Society. Plus……….. and this is a Big Plus, they have either been a Lawyer, or they have studied law in college, so they just know enough to sneak around through loop holes and twist around the spoken word, in ways that they have never been twisted before. If you can’t say what you mean, or mean what you say, then maybe you should vacate the premises and crawl back under that rock, for which you crawled from underneath.

There is way too much corruption and ugliness within the walls of Washington D. C. I think maybe it is time to dust those walls and rid them of all the cob webs, as Washington D. C. once again gets back to what it was made for and not as the laughing stock it is today. The power is within reach of we the people and come the mid term elections, we all can flex our muscles, as we truly, with our true actions, finally get rid of those cob webs, which then will have us all end the corruption, end the ugliness, so we all than can walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness, for which we all so deserve.

 

” True words will never die, as we truly do not have to create any kind of fake news”

” God really did set his words in stone, just that we the people have misplaced the stone”

” Getting voted into an office is a privilege and in no way do you have the right to that office”

” Never turn your backs on anything, as you just never know what the anything will do for you”

A True American Hero

” Is death the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening”

Sir Walter Scott

 

 

” It is not of the years in your life, it is more of the life within your years”

May you finally be at peace Senator John McCain, Thank you very much for your brave service in the United States Navy, as your journey through the Navy had it’s bright spots, as well as it’s dark and gloomy days. You Sir are a true Hero, as most would of cracked under all the pain and hurt you have gone through. You are exactly the type of person, for whom built this country, into the great country it has become and without men like you, only God knows of what might of become with the land of the United States of America. John McCain went from a Hero of the Vietnam war, to becoming  U. S. Senator, which he gave a huge part of himself, for the good of his fellow man, now some may not agree with his policies, or him as a person, but you simply can not deny, that he was most definitely, a true American Hero, for which we all can look up to, so we to can strive to walk our paths of this journey through life, as close to being the man that John McCain truly was.

Just as this Eagle looks down on us all, to protect and serve being the strong bird it is, now John McCain is looking down upon us all, to protect and serve us as best he can, while he appears before God, to receive his wings, which will help him get around to protect us all, for the same thing he did, while he was flying around for the Navy, doing what he loved to do.

John McCain came from a strong family with a strong family foundation, as his Dad and Granddad were both Admirals in the United States Navy, making him a third generation Navy man. After his days in the Navy ended, he then embarked on a path of Public service, which he had more than stepped up to the plate in many ways, throughout his career. John definitely lived a complete and genuine life, as a life that most only dream of. So no matter of what you think of John McCain the man, or the Politician, there is no denying that, he was a true American Hero of our time, who gave his all, for the good of us all, so we to can walk our paths of this journey through life, following the foot steps of such a great man.

This journey through life is not measured by how many years you have within it, This journey is totally measured by the life you live within the years you are so graciously given by God. When you walk your paths correctly, the journey will reward you with greatness and the one thing we so take for granted and that is, the respect we earn from all those around us, very much like the respect John McCain has earned throughout his journey. With this respect of all of us, truly has us feeling the love of God, that is deep within our souls, so we than can share this love with our true empathy, with each other as we walk our paths through this journey of life. When we walk through this journey correctly, the journey seems so simple, but when we bring all the other crap like, hatred, ugliness and corruption to this journey, is when the journey becomes very difficult for us all. So let’s take the John McCain approach as we walk our paths through this journey of life, so we all can live in peace and happiness, while we strive for greatness and the respect of all those around us.

 

” A true Hero does not look in the mirror and see a Hero, he becomes one with his actions for all those around him”

” Respect is a two way street and will never become a street of one way”

” God has so graciously given us this journey to walk our paths, it is how we repay him with our actions, that brings us much respect”

 

 

 

 

Working hard and moving up

” The best things in life are free, the air we breathe, the stars at night, the wonder of Human love, but the greatest gift of all is our salvation, purchased for us by Jesus Christ………….. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift”

2 Corinthians 9:15

 

Within today’s society of fast pace and full of technology that has made life easy for us all, we have also become lazy with our work ethnic, where we want the world to cater to us, but we do not want to work for what we want? Just like when we take a trek up a mountain, there comes work to get to our destination of the summit at the top of the mountain, yes you have to climb up hill and a lot of the up hills are very steep, as you climb quickly in elevation to get to the summit. Now to achieve the reward of the beauty and the great scenery at the summit, you first have to put in the work of climbing up a trail for which you trek.

Now I am not saying that all of us have lost that hard work ethnic that has made this country great, just that it is becoming instinct and needs to be fixed before it becomes lost for ever.  A good work ethnic is one that, when you start a job within a company, you are not afraid or not ashamed to start at the ground floor and work hard while you climb the ladder of success within that company, as you climb the ladder within that company, also comes the great rewards of pay raises, that simply shows you that, you are somebody of which others do notice your hard work ethnic within the job you do, not too mention of what it does to your spiritual being deep within your soul. This spiritual being is part of our DNA, our make up of who we truly are, this is what makes our self esteem grow, as we then feel good of ourselves, moving forward along the path we chose, through this journey of life.

We all want the toys of life, the material things for which we consume along this journey, but being lazy and not working a job, because we simply don’t like the job, will never have us achieve any success, so we than can buy whatever material item we wish to buy. Bouncing around from job to job, is no way to develop a good strong work ethnic, never mind of not only building a great foundation in your work life.

With a great work life and the starting on the ground floor of your life, is what completes us as a Human Being, we respect all the things around us more as we grow into this world, that little child within us grows better and stronger as well, which then has us on the exterior growing with a strong self esteem. Never think of your job as “work”, only work hard at what you do, so you than can move up the rungs of the ladder known as success, as you not only feel great inside, but it shows on the outside with your true actions, of who you truly are.

Starting out on the ground floor of life, or within our jobs is not a bad thing, nor should it be frowned upon, as it only builds strength, character and helps us grow inside and out, with that little child that is within us all, growing stronger and healthy year after year, as we walk this journey through life. In this country we have what we call the ” American Dream”? This is nothing more than all of us working very hard to achieve great success and when we achieve this great success, we then not only build a strong foundation and grow strong roots, we then accumulate the material things within this society. now sometimes with success we forget of who we truly are? we forget of that little child deep within our souls, which not only leads us to a little child with no true direction,  it will also lead us into a lifestyle of negativity, weakness and laziness, which then makes us vulnerable to all the ugliness we see around us today. With strength come happiness and with happiness comes peace for us all, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” With strength comes happiness and with happiness comes peace”

” We all want great success along this journey, we also have to work hard to achieve this peace and happiness”

” Work ethnic is within each of us, just that some have refused to unleash the hard work part of the ethnic”

” Work ethnic helps us grow stronger while we greatly respect all that is around us”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stay in Tune with the trail

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” You shall surround me with songs of deliverance”

Psalm 32:7

 

Through hope there will always be faith, there are many signs by God as we walk our paths of this journey, Sometimes we feel weary and worn out, we become desperate for things to change, through these times we simply need to ask God of where we have become so out of tune? God will always be faithful to you, giving you much hope moving forward along your path of this journey through life.

The journey of any trail for which we walk, very much calls for us to be in tune with that trail and as we switch to a different trail along this journey, we then become out of tune leaving us to skipping the beat and missing out on truly walking a finely tuned trail. Just as an out of tune musical instrument doesn’t play as smoothly as a tuned one, we also walk this journey  not truly feeling the heart beat of ourselves and what’s around us, as we then can’t find the tune of, faith in ourselves and
God, with no hope moving forward along this journey of life.

The tune of the trail will never be heard with your ears, it can only be felt from deep within your soul, as you become one with your surroundings, as we then sync up to the blue tooth of life, otherwise known as God. God our Heavenly Father is the Conductor for all the sounds of all the tunes within the Orchestra of life. When we become out of tune, we lose all faith and hope, this is when we need to sync up with life’s blue tooth, which is the power of prayer and the direct line to God himself. He may not answer us directly, but he will always put up the signs for us to see and all we need to do is, look deeply into what we see, so we than can become in tune with all our surroundings, along the path we walk, through this journey of life.

 

” The songs of silence is the power of prayer, keeping us in tune with all that is around us”

” Just like with any song and it’s tune, we to become out of tune leaving us out of sync with the blue tooth of reality”

” You may never hear the tune of the trail before you, but you can truly feel it deep within your soul”

” The WiFi of life connects the blue tooth of reality to God, so he can keep us all in tune with the trail through the power of prayer”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Beauty of the Trail

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

All trails are unique to each other, each trail tells a story if you look deeply into them and when you truly listen to them, then you shall see the true beauty of the trail. Some may hike a trail to the summit of the mountain, just to reach the summit, take a ” Selfie” on the summit, then post to their social media platforms, showing others of their hike. This is fine, but………. But your missing the big picture and not truly listening to what the trail is saying to you.

The mountain trails have a lot to say if you really listen to them as you trek along the trails of the mountains. From the mountain streams you cross, to all the different plant life and the animals all around you, some of what you may never see  along the normal 9 to 5 of the usual path through the journey of life. We become so fast paced within our regular daily events, that we never take the time to actually look deeply into what we see, just as a long the trail of the mountains, when we just hike too post to our social media platforms, we totally miss out on all the true beauty that is around us along the trail.

Some may not have the desire to hike a mountain, or may look at it as too much work to climb to the summit? That is fine there are plenty of Nature trails that are easier and still offer you the chance to get outdoors, to truly enjoy ” The beauty of the trail”. Some of the mountain trails can and will show you of just how out of shape you are, these trails will totally test your physical ability, as well as your mental structure, but the reward of the beautiful view at the summit, will have you in awe of the trail you just hiked, plus when you truly looked deeply at all that was around you as you hiked the trail, now you can totally feel the peace and serenity that is within you, with a huge feeling of accomplishment.

The beauty of the trail will captivate you, when you truly listen to what the trail is saying to you, it will have you think less of the work of reaching the summit and think more of taking in the true beauty all around you. The problem within this Society, especially within the big cities, is that we never take the time to enjoy anything around us, let alone………….taking in the true beauty of all that is around us. We get so caught up in all the hatred and ugliness of today, that we then forget of who we truly are, we forget there is more to this journey of life than what we see everyday, it is also true that we get so consumed within the everyday life, that we then become someone we are not, whether of our own doing, or of the doing from someone around us? Which then we either become a Victim or help create other Victims of today and through all this we objectify others around us, instead of looking deeply into them, to see that………..yes we are are equal to each other, just unique in our own way. The true empathy and love is within us all deep within our souls, just that we bury it so deep within, that we can not truly feel it as we should, so we than can spread it among each other, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

The beauty of the trail can and will have us look deeper into what is around us, not just too see the beauty on the trail, but to see all the beauty around us, whether we are on the trail, or walking our paths of this journey. The beauty of the trail is magical and can transform you into, being true to who you are, while you look deeply into all that is around you, while it brings you closer to reality, instead of further away from reality, as walking the streets of society will do. We all walk a path through this journey of life, let’s do it correctly so we than can experience true peace and happiness always.

 

” The beauty of the trail is magical and can transform you back to being of truly who you are”

” Just as we are unique to each other, so are the mountain trails, full of true beauty always”

” The mountain trail are alive and will talk to you if you look deeply into all that is around them”

” Life within the society can change you into being someone you truly are not, as life on the trail will bring you back to being who you truly are”

 

 

 

 

 

Times change… People change… in more ways than one

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

Every mountain has it’s trails, just as all the paths we walk within this this journey are the trails of life. No matter of the trail or how many times you walk the trail, there will be many changes that come to the trail, some changes can be very drastic and very noticeable, while other changes are minuscule or so small, that you may never notice, unless you look deeply into what you see. All trails never stay the same,  there is always something different no matter how many times you walk the trail,

Just as the trail changes, so do we the people as well. We all have our issues and no one that walks through this journey has no issues, the issues are the same as the the changes of the trail, they can range from very drastic, to very minuscule as well, sometimes the issues are brought on by our own actions, other times they are brought on by those around us. These issues are what changes us over time, the changes can be for the better as we move forward, or the changes can be very negative, that in many ways has us moving backwards and becoming lost within the clouds of our judgments, the changes we go through can and will take us from being of truly who we are, to being someone of who we are not, which will have even ourselves, not recognizing the person for which we are.

Life is full of change all around us, there is nothing that does not go through change. It is how we deal with the change, that determines not just of who we truly are and become, but how we treat each other as we walk our paths of this journey through life. When we are not of who we truly are, which is the love and empathy that is already within our souls, this is when we tend to pull back  from those around us and pull in others of the same, then form a pack that attacks those that are not part of their pack, this also brings ugliness and hatred into the mix, which then complicates things further, instead of making things better moving forward. This is not truly of who we are, as through love and empathy, we actually feel deeply and care deeply, for those around us and will never harm another at any time throughout this journey.

We all have our quirks that pretty much we become accustomed to so much that, we really do not realize when they become an issue, one of the biggest quirks is, the way we speak our words to each other and through this world of political correction, has us all turning against each other and dividing us as a society, then we never really try to fix and change this, but instead point the finger of blame on one another, not just to deflect from ourselves, but to make light of our issues, to focus on the issues of another. With that said……….. I get the fact of some of the older generation taking offense to the way President Trump met and chatted with the Russian leader Mr. Putin, but I am sure President Trump remembers greatly of the past, when all were scared when the alarms sounded,not knowing if the big one was going to be dropped, from the days of the dark cold war with Russia. That was then, this is now, times have changed as well as we the people also. It is very hard to let go of the past, especially when you don’t take the necessary steps, to fix what you need to, so you can move forward better and stronger. President Trump is old school and is set in his ways, but that should never take away the fact that, he is a very smart man that has the best interests for America deep within himself and wants so badly, to improve all our paths within this country so badly. that His actions to this point speak for themselves and we can clearly see that he is improving and living up to his campaign promises. The problem lies deep within ourselves, simply because our judgments have been lost in the clouds within us for so long, we clearly have become very quick to judge other’s and point the finger of blame away from ourselves, as we have totally forgotten how to except responsibility, so we than can fix what we need to fix, then continue moving forward along the trails of our path, through this journey of life.

 

” Change comes to each of us in many ways, it is how we deal with the change that determines of who we become within this journey of life”

” There are many trails within this journey to explore, as each of these trails go through many changes as well”

” We climb the trails of the mountains to explore and see new things, but we do just the opposite as we walk our paths of this journey”

” Before we become quick to judge other’s, let us first look deeply within ourselves and fix our own issues moving forward within this journey”
