The clouds take shape, as they speak in their own way

” While he was still speaking, a cloud came and cast a shadow over them, they became frightened when they entered the cloud, then from the cloud came a voice that said, ” This is my chosen son; listen to him”

*** Lk 9:34-35 ***

Within this Society we walk today, we are so far removed from the journey of Jesus Christ, that we have become so easily consumed by all the ugliness, that we see nothing in front of us, nothing only because we do not look deeper into what we see. We go into the house of God for once a week, then the rest of the week, we let the ugliness consume us once again, this has become one big vicious circle for each of us, to the point that we look up and just see clouds, without looking deeper and really seeing their shapes and hearing their suttle words for us from our savior Jesus Christ.

With this weeks words from this quote from Luke, you can clearly see that this is a great quote for us all within this Society of today, simply because we of today only look superficially at all that is around us, instead of looking deeply into what you see. That guy you shrug off as a quack pot………. Maybe he is very smart and views the World very differently than you and I? We all look at the new Congresswoman, especially that one from New York who was a bartender, true she comes across as a quack pot and someone that has no clue on reality, but instead of looking at her as a joke, let’s try looking at her very deeply and just maybe we can see something in her, that will help us all in this Society. We all have something to give, just that when we become lost in the clouds of our judgments, we then never look deeply into what we see, anywhere around us.

Wake up in the morning, you walk into the bathroom and what do you see? I mean what do you really see? Yes your reflection is in the mirror, but do you just see your reflection, or do you truly see of who you really are? Because within today’s Society if we all looked deeply into what we see, just maybe we would all see that, all this ugliness and hatred is not truly of who we are. With all these ugly shootings that happen around us, like the one in New Zealand, when we clearly look deeply into what we see, we will see that this is a reflection of one or a few and never a reflection of who we truly are, this Individual or Individuals responsible for this shooting is clearly troubled and in dire need to dig down deep, to truly feel the love of Jesus Christ within them, as we all have that same love within us, the problem then lies with each of us, as we don’t truly feel and acknowledge that love enough, within this Society we walk together.

Let’s look at some of the certain media types out there, this is 100% the reason why none of us can look deeply into what we see, as these media types won’t let us, with all the crap they feed us daily. Simply because of all the crap, we then never look deeply into what we see, as we just skim across the top, just to try to keep moving forward with as little pain and hurt as we can. Through the drama of the media, we are then looked at and laughed at often, which then furthers us to bury a big part of who we are, so deep within ourselves that, we then forget it’s there to spare us from any pain and hurt. The media wants us to believe their rhetoric, just for them to keep the drama flowing and we the people, never to truly look deeply into what we see and truly see of who we truly are.

That mountain top experience you hear in the Bible so many times, it is not about the climb of the mountain, it is of that special feeling you get deep within yourself, as Jesus talks to you on the top of the mountain, that deep warm feeling that flows through your veins with the blood of life, that warm feeling that fills your heart with love and keeps it beating to the rhythm of life, you don’t have to be a Mountaineer to truly feel all of this, all you need is, to truly look deeply into what you see, so you than can truly be all that you are and share the love of God with each other. Then and only then, will all this ugliness end and all the hatred go away, so we can walk our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness that Jesus Christ his son showed us, as he walked his journey here with us as well.

” Everything comes to us for a reason, it is us that see’s through the clouds and finds the reason”

” Lets end all this ugliness around us as we then look deeply into what we see and not superficially at what we see”

” Some may climb the mountain only cause its there, others for a Facebook page, but you don’t need to climb a mountain for the true mountain top experience”

” Forget about what the media try’s to feed you, just look deeply at what you see, to truly see the good in all that is around you”

Life is not about buying your way into a status………….

I get the fact that each generation through this society, should be better than the one of the past, but at what cost are we really paying, when we buy our way into anything, without working hard and paying the dues as we should? With this latest scandal of the paying big money to get your child into an elite college, who are the ones really being hurt here? It’s the ones that were rejected because someone paid big dollars to get their child in, without even working hard to be accepted into that college. The ones that were rejected may have just done everything right and everything as they should, but because someone has money, doesn’t give them the right to jump ahead of the pack, just to give their child the prestige, or the right to claim a higher status over their Peers.

Going to college wherever that may be, should be respectful and full of knowledge, for whom ever the person is that is going. College should yes be a fun time for any student, as well as teach our children, just how to work hard and when you work hard, life will reward you with big rewards. You think those children whose Parents bought their way into the elite college, will work hard for their knowledge? Exactly!!! They are going to think that you can buy anything in life, plus they are going to party everyday, instead of working hard to achieve great things, as they walk their paths through this journey of life.

I agree we all deserve some breaks from time to time, but only because you have worked hard for what you have, or for where you are? But when you buy your way into something only means one thing and one thing only, you simply have cheated the system and robbed someone else, for trying to help themselves and move forward, so they to can live the dream and earn respect with every step. We all have dreams, we all have hopes, but when you buy into something, now your shattering all hope and destroying any dreams away from another, while you are only thinking of yourself and no other.

Life doesn’t have to be about any status, nor does it have to be about money, although………… Yes you need money to pay the bills and live, but really now, life really is about being happy, peaceful and sharing your love and compassion with each other. the money is only extracurricular and by no means do we truly need it, just that in this society full of greed, we have come to attached to it, which has divided us, instead of bringing us together within the love and joy, that Jesus Christ brought to each of us everyday. Money may buy us material things, money may help us cheat and jump ahead of each other, but money will never buy true happiness, money will never buy us love, as love is already within each of us, we can’t take the money with us when we depart this journey, so why are we so hell bent on trying to acquire all the money?

” The only status in life that should matter, is your status with Jesus Christ, to keep the faith with great hope always”

” Instead of trying to show off to others with our wealth, may we try showing off Jesus Christ , for the true love and happiness always”

” College is good to be there for the right reasons, but not just to achieve a status”

The journey of Lent/Daylight savings

As the days become longer with the light of day and as we walk this journey through Lent, we now know that the season of camping is right around the corner, the season for us all to escape the daily grind and venture to the out doors, where Mother Nature is ready to show us her true beauty. Primitive camping where you pitch a tent and as you lay down to sleep within your sleeping bag, now you can listen to the heart beat of the Earth, listen to all the nightly sounds, like an owl waking from their sleep as they only can see clearly at night, maybe if your lucky you can hear the whispers of the night or maybe a nearby stream will comfort you to sleep with it’s running water?

With your camp site all set up and the camp fire ready for the night sky, you now can plan your day for tomorrow, maybe a hike up a mountain to see as far as you can from the summit of the mountain and as you walk up the trail, you may see some scenes you will never see within the daily grind. Yes it is true a hike can be a lot of work, but it is work much different than the daily grind, it is work that can relax you in the right frame of mind, let alone that it will help clear your mind from all the ugliness that comes with being within a society full of much ugliness. To escape within Mother Nature is a great way to unwind and totally feel the stress melt from your body. We within this ugly society and through the dark days of Winter, let way too much effect us and let all the ugliness consume us to the point that, we become bitter to all that is around us, we forget that there is a whole lot more to this journey of life than, what we see in our daily grind. Yes we all need a paycheck to pay the bills and survive in our lives, but we become so consumed with that…………. we then totally forget to take some ” me” time to unwind and cure our mind, body and soul, so we can walk our paths of this journey in peace and happiness always.

Within this picture is so much peace and serenity, when you sit by the fire and take it all in, look out within the beauty in front of you, you can actually feel the stress leave your body and as the stress leaves you, now you can actually hear all that is around you, listen to the sweet sounds of the different wildlife around you, even hear the fish jump out of the water, hear the Eagles soar by with the greatest of ease, the loons chatting back and forth from a far, not too forget the many different birds singing their tunes throughout the echoes of the sky. There is so much beauty around you, you then forget of the daily grind and even though just for a short time, it is time you now can heal yourself from all the ugliness, heal yourself from what consumes you through the dark Winter days, so now you can clear the clouds from your judgments and totally heal your mind, body and soul from the stress of the daily grind.

Let’s not forget that when you escape to the beauty of Mother Nature, you are now within the home of many other different life forms on this planet, just like we live in our homes and we would hate for others to come in and disrupt our homes, we are now within the homes of so many animals within nature, like bear, moose, deer etc…. So as you set your camp always remember to respect their home, as we would want others to respect ours. Leave no trace while you are there and when you depart back to the daily grind, when you leave no trace when you leave, then you can come back to still more beauty, as Mother Nature is constantly changing with all within it. The plant life, the tree’s and even the animals, change all the time, just like we grow from our young ages, so does all within Mother Nature and it is a beautiful thing, to escape within nature and witness all the beautiful changes. Sometimes the changes to nature comes from violent weather, or maybe fire, but through these kind of changes, it may take some time, but the beauty does come back, for us all to enjoy once again. We all walk our paths through this journey of life, with one of the great perks of this journey, is the taking of some time, to get out and escape the daily grind, to really enjoy the beauty of Mother nature, to be at peace and happiness with ourselves and as we then heal ourselves, to get back in touch with the love within us, so we than can share that love with each other, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” Daylight savings may have us dread the loss of an hour, but we do gain more daylight to enjoy the great outdoors”

” Earth has a heart beat just like we do as well, mother nature has it’s beauty as do we as well”

” camping season is the chance for us all to escape the daily grind and relax to heal ourselves from the ugliness and see the true beauty of this journey”

” Mother nature has so much beauty within it, you can clearly see it all when you look deeply within what you see”

Hate belongs no where within this journey we all walk

” Blessed are you when people hate you and when they exclude you or insult you, denounce your name as evil, on account of the son of man. Behold your reward will be great in Heaven”.

***LK 6:22, 23b***

The son of man or otherwise known as Jesus Christ, when Jesus came and walked his journey with us, he never did so out of hate, he never even acted as if there was even any hatred as part of him, Jesus treated us all as equals and yes there are no two of us alike, so tell me who you are and I am welcoming you with open arms.

As calm and as beautiful as this picture is within Nature, is all that we could ever imagine of what to expect within Heaven. First we all have to drop all the hate, as this is what just may stop us from truly meeting Jesus within the beauty of Heaven. Jesus showed zero hate of anybody while he walked his journey here with us, hate comes from right here with us, as we are the ones that developed this hatred that is among us today. Socialism breeds hatred and the dividing of each one of us, against each other, even while the love of Jesus Christ is within the hearts and souls within us.

Hatred takes a lot of work everyday from each of us, as love is very natural and within us all and takes zero effort to spread it with all who is around us. Why this hatred has spread among us today, I really have no answer for this, because this is not truly of who we are and it is not of what Jesus taught us along his journey with us. I get the fact that we are all very diverse of each other, but this diversity should never be of what divides us so, we are all very unique to each other, which when we bring forward our uniqueness, then we can move forward better and stronger, out of the love of Jesus, with zero hatred anywhere along our paths.

When those among us call us names, hate on us, or simply exclude and insult us, only means one thing of those who do this, which is the fact that these Individuals have zero self esteem of themselves and have zero belief or faith in Jesus Christ our savior. If only these Individuals could have any faith in Jesus Christ, then there could be hope for us all as we walk our paths of this journey through life, so we all can be in the peace of God, with nothing but true happiness at every turn of the journey.

The love of God within us all will warm us so,

The belief and faith in Jesus will give us much hope,

As we all search for the entrance of the pearly gates to Heaven,

Let us forever end the hate, to share the love that is within us all.

” Hate is the ugliness that surrounds us today, love will always turn the ugliness into great beauty”

” Socialism is nothing but hatred and division and is truly of who we are not”

” Love is within us all with great beauty and warmth as through love there will never be any hatred”

Power up/ Power down

Power is good when you are in a boat on the water, or maybe driving in a car on a road trip, anything mechanical needs power to survive, but we the people do not need power to survive, much to the sha-grin of what those in Government think? When you get voted in by the people of your country, it’s not about becoming more powerful than you once were, it is more about being a great leader, so the people who voted you in, will follow, with no regret.

When you have power it has nothing to do with being a leader, as much as our elected officials may have us think, especially those within the Democratic party, who are so far in denial that they have lost all sense of reality. These same Democrats who live within their gated communities that have state of the art security, but yet don’t want you or I to feel the same safety where we live? There is a major concern down on our southern border that needs to be addressed, but the Democrats don’t see it that way, they would rather push forth their agendas, then the agendas of the ones who put them within the walls of Washington DC. There is a shutdown in our Government right now, not a 100% shutdown, only about 70%? But during this shutdown the Speaker of the house Nancy Pelosi goes to Hawaii for some fun in the sun, plus not too mention her flights to Washington DC and her home she puts in as travel expense, who do you think pays that expense? That’s right…………..we the people of this country, I think term limits are warranted, as there are some becoming way too comfy within the walls of Washington DC.

Right now there is a power struggle going on about putting up a wall along our southern border, this wall cost money and the Democrats won’t budge on the issue of no funding, even with all the facts out there of the drugs, the riff raff, the criminal Illegals all flooding this country, I do credit the Border Patrol for the job they are doing, but it is a tall task with miles and miles of Border to cover everyday. 90% of the Heroin coming into this country, is coming right through our southern border and even with many Americans over dosing, the Democrats still can’t see the real reality right in front of them, but instead they are focused more on letting the Illegals come in here, sponge of us the Tax Payer and even vote for them so they can stay in power. It is not about all the power you can gain, if you can not be a true Leader, then it is time for you to go and get out of the walls of Washington DC.

President Trump to this point is doing a stand up job, he has done more in two years, than the last three Presidents and the twenty four years combined between them, he wants so bad to achieve another promise to we the people, but the Democrats are standing in the way and think that there is no crises on our southern Border? I think it is time that we the people flood the phone lines whether cell or land line, of all the men and woman of Congress, to let them know of their denial and it’s time to wake up and get back in touch with reality, or we the people will vote them out, just as quick as they were voted in. When you think about having all the power within the walls of Washington DC, what you are really doing is, screwing the American people of their rights and their lives, without giving two shakes of a lamb’s tail, or having any care for who you may be walking all over. A true Leader does not do that, as a true Leader will get the job done without stepping on anybodies shoe shine.

President Trump is that Leader, okay he may be a bit rough with his words, but only because he does not believe in this ” Political Correction”. President Trump is a CEO and a Business man and he is running this country as a Business, just like all the Businesses that make up this country, he puts the right people around him that will best do the job, but like all CEO’s they are result driven and when you don’t give results………..you get replaced, like President Trump has done with some of who were around him. The Democrats don’t see this only because they are so far in denial, they really can’t see anything, not even themselves as they look in the mirror. The left Bias Media is much the same as they to have been spun out of the same web. I know there are a lot of others out there who are smart enough and not in denial to true reality, that totally see right through the Democrat hypocrisy, it is us that needs to be stronger, be patient, as this crap will not go on forever and hopefully someone within the Democratic party, finally wakes up to reality and snaps the others back to the same reality, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life, in peace and happiness once again, while we all move forward.

All these Democrats can live within their gated communities and feel safe, then why can’t you and I feel safe in our communities, we have the same right to this safety as they do, but we have to put up with the ” Illegals” because the Democrats are forcing them down our throats, whether we want them or not. There is a group coming through our Borders and they are brutal, they are MS 13 and they are coming here with no cares of who they hurt and they are not just hurting, but killing Americans as we speak, the left Bias media and the Democrats won’t speak of them, because of their denial, they simply can not see this, or just maybe they do not want to see this, because it will effect their agenda, that they want to cram down our throats. The time is now for each of us as Americans, to stand up against all this Hypocrisy, before America as we once knew it disappears from us, plus Socialism never works, all you need to do is, look within history at the old USSR, or the present Venezuela, Let’s all get behind President Trump and truly ” Make America Great Again.

” Socialism will never work, because nothing is ever free and always comes with a cost”

” Illegal Immigration means you are doing something wrong and you need to change what you are doing”

” America was built on Immigration, but Immigration done the correct way for us all to be in peace and happiness with less drama”

” It’s not as much about having the power, as it is all about being a true leader and truly leading without stepping on anybodies shoe shine”

Having an Epiphany or an AH!!!! HA!!! moment…….






” That moment when you finally see what was already there in front of you, that is having an Epiphany”

There were many of these moments as Jesus walked his journey here with us, but as we do here in today’s Society, we don’t look deeply enough, nor do we look at what is right in front of us, instead we only see what we want to see, only because it is whats conveinant at the time, with no effort at all on our part. With Jesus walking his journey so long ago and we in this society, not making into the house of the Lord as we used to, makes for a society in denial of who they truly are. Jesus is always right there not just in front of us, but within us all, with his love for each one of us, but with we as a society not entering the house of the Lord as we should be, makes for a similar Epiphany for us all.

With all the ugliness and the hatred around us today, only proves further that we all need to have this epiphany, so we all can get back to who we truly are. When Jesus walked his journey here with us, he didn’t do it for the power or any amount of money, he did it for us while he showed how much he loved each one of us, he died on the cross for each of us, then rose from the dead to be seated at his Father’s side, showing us all that, when we to walk the path of righteousness, then when this journey ends, we also can live within Heaven. Jesus never failed us, only we failed ourselves, simply because we have wandered away from the house of the Lord and not truly seeing what is right there in front of us.

With we of this Society wandering away from the house of the Lord and forming our own opinions of the truth, will only lead us into a world of lies, hatred and ugliness, as you can see from today’s society, then through all the crap, we have spun everything in a political way, even a walk to the local general store, will get spun in a political way, this is who we have become, simply because we have wandered away from the house of the Lord. Those so called Leaders that get voted into office by us, can not even look each other in the eyes and do the job they were voted in to do, simply because they spin everything in a political way, instead of sitting down to simply talk eye to eye. When we share the love of Jesus within us, with each other as Jesus wants us to do, then all this political spinning will disappear, with each one of us having that Epiphany, that is really right there in front of us all.

You can either just watch the water flow over the rocks and down into the pool below, or you can truly see a stream flowing through the landscape, then falling over the rocks, forming a waterfall making a pool at the bottom. The Epiphany will have you see the waterfall as you look deeply into what you see, but when you are shallow, than you will see everything just as shallow as you are. Jesus doesn’t want us to see his power, he wants us to truly feel his love within us, so we can share that love with each other, as we walk this journey together, with no ugliness or hatred. Instead of just spinning everything in a political way, let us all have that Epiphany and truly walk into the house of the Lord, to see what was always right there in front of us, the love of Jesus Christ for each of us not just to see, but to feel deep within, everyday of this journey.

” Let the water fall on your head so the cold water can wake you in the true Epiphany way”

” The political way is not the right way, as the right way will give you that AH!!! HA!!! moment”

” When the leaders of today can not see eye to eye, then maybe it is time for the Epiphany to snap us all back to reality”

With a new Year around the corner……..


It is just sad that each and every year no matter what the year, we bring the same hatred and ugliness with us. Instead of each of us digging deep within ourselves, getting truly in touch with who we are, feeling the love of Jesus deep within our hearts and souls, then bringing this love out to share with each other, so when each new year comes we than can, bring peace and joy instead of hatred and ugliness to all who are around us. Instead of going out and partying the new year in, stay home and take stock in your life, do a self inventory of where you are, where you came from and where you want to go. Look at the new year as real change and this change truly starts with each of us and not with just chatter, but our true actions, which speaks a lot louder than any words.

Don’t look to our so called leaders within our Governments, these Individuals will forever let us down as they can’t even see eye to eye with each other. They say they are there for us, but each time they promise something………………….. Well let’s just say they live with a lot of broken promises in their lives. The real change comes from you and I, us the people who walk a path through this journey of life. Our so called leaders may say things like ” we the people don’t want this kind of change”, but who are they really speaking for? When they put words in our mouths we never said. There is change all around us, some being small and easy, while some may bring great pain? None the less all change when accepted and done correctly, is the most beautiful thing we will ever do, especially when we change from all the the hatred and ugliness, to peace and joy and truly be, who we truly are.

With each passing year, yes every January 1st. comes a bright new year, instead of chatting about changing something in your life, then never following through on the chatter, just be quiet and let your actions speak, especially when those actions comes from within, like showing more empathy and love for one another, if each and every one of us do this, then the real change will come to us and all this hatred and ugliness will go away. There is way too much crap around us and we are killing ourselves everyday, as we do nothing too stop the crap. There are a few coming into a country Illegally and doing great harm to those within the country like the most recent one. A Police Officer in California who he himself came to this country as an Immigrant, but an Immigrant that did it the correct way, has worked for the Police for many years and raising a family, has been gunned down by an Illegal Immigrant, which now his family has to try to move forward without him? It’s stories like this that grab the strings of your heart, but our so called leaders turn their backs, say nothing and try to make it like it’s no big deal? The time is now for each of us to hold these leaders accountable and if they don’t want to help bring real change, then it is time to change these so called leaders, to leaders that will actually bring the change we all want, so we can all move forward in peace and happiness, along our paths of this journey through life.

There is plenty of beauty all around us, we just have to look deeply into what we see, dig deeply within ourselves and retrieve truly of who we are, dig deeper into ourselves and get back in touch with our true feelings, truly feel the warmth of Jesus Christ and his love, that is within all our hearts and souls, then share that love with each other, so we all can move forward not backwards along our paths of this journey, just maybe we all need to get out within Nature and see all it’s true beauty, instead of getting tangled within the streets of the city. We all enter and exit this journey the same, for some the journey may not be as long as others, so instead of leaving this journey with regrets, let’s all walk this journey in peace and happiness, while we end the hatred and ugliness, for peace and joy and truly walk this journey as Jesus did. The right way full of love for all that is around us, so we all can be at peace, to enjoy all the true beauty at every turn, throughout this journey of life.

” Change is everywhere time we accept it and move forward better and stronger”

” A new year may be a new number, so let’s truly make that number as beautiful as we can, through real change”

” Illegal is just that, you are doing something wrong and need to change what you are doing”

” Hatred and ugliness are learned and easy, as love and empathy may be within us, but is hard to take from within and share them”

Happy New Year???

This quote by little eight year old Martin Richard, who we lost so tragically at the Boston marathon bombings, will forever stand the test of time throughout all the new Year’s, as the best quote ever.

With this being the last week of 2018 and the new 2019 right around the corner, is this really going to be a new year, or just much of the same? Seems like we spend more time on partying in the new year, than doing anything in truly making it a new year. We all take too much for granted of the leader’s we put in place to bring real change to us, when all we need to do is, each and every one of us, with our actions, are the ones that can bring real change around us. Real change starts with us, we first need to get off our fannies, put in the work, instead of partying at every turn, so not just we ourselves can be at peace, but all those around us can be at peace as well.

We all set these resolutions of which we never follow through on? We only never follow through because talk is cheap and actions speak louder. A resolution is meaningless unless you follow through on what you say and not speak, just to heat up the air with hot air from your mouth around you. If you know you are not going to follow through on your resolution, then say nothing and just let your actions say what you really want to say. Resolutions are useless anyways, only because it’s the lazy way out of a conversation, instead of confidently speaking in a conversation and truly making the change you want to make.

Why do we call it a ” New Year”, if we still do all the same things, except the fact that the year itself has changed. Whether it is domestic or abroad, we never really have any real change, we have a lot of hot air talking of change, but the true change we never receive. Some may change the approach of the change, then say they made change, but the same old same old still comes back to us, as the change disappears. True change comes from deep within each of us, we first have to be on the same page and not resist any change, whether it’s from ourselves or another. As we the people look toward our so called leaders for the change, how can they truly bring real change to us, if they themselves can not even see eye to eye, without the bickering and the arguing between each other? If someone comes forth with real change, it gets immediately shot down, cause it didn’t come from they themselves, which in the long run, has us all stay within ourselves, instead of working towards bringing real change to us all, so we than can move forward on our paths, of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

Happy New Year is truly each one of us coming together in peace and happiness, while we bring real change to each other, that will help us all be stronger and better than the year prior. Happy New Year is not about just changing a year, then we all continue all the hatred and ugliness of each other. We all may think that real change starts at the top? On the contrary…….. It starts with each one of us, whether your on the top, the bottom or the middle, working together in harmony and helping to bring real change to us all, moving forward throughout this journey of life.

We can still celebrate the coming of a new year, but there is a big difference between a celebration and just partying in the new year. You celebrate cause you are working at the true change, to bring into the new year and share with all around you. You party in the new year, only to wake up not feeling good or remembering anything of the night before. Somewhere in the translation of Happy New Year, we have lost the true message of bringing real change around us, which is why we have to look back, not to dwell in the past, but to see where we went wrong, fix what we need to fix, so we than can move forward along our paths of this journey through life, better and stronger, as the proper and real change comes to us and we all can be at, the true peace and happiness always.

” Happy New Year is not just the changing of a few numbers on the calendar, it is the bringing of true change to us all always”

” A true Happy new Year should bring us all peace and happiness always”

” ” No more hurting people peace” this should be more than a quote and help us all bring real change to each other”

” A celebration is happy and peaceful, as a party is something a lot of times we do not remember”

A Jolly old Fellow………

See the source image

Twas the night before Christmas and throughout the house not a peep was heard, for we all wait on the arrival of this joyful guy in the bright red suit. Santa Claus goes about his business as quiet as a church mouse, within the walls of the church, as come the rise of the morning sun, this Jolly old Fellow disappears for yet another year.

This merry old gentleman really does not have to disappear for another, as all his traits lives within us all, so we can share them with each other. Santa Claus loves to give and share, which are two of the traits that is within all of us. now as Santa comes along as we sleep, we all can totally give and share, as all we have to do is, totally feel the warmth of the love within each of us so then just like Santa, we as well can quietly spread our love within, with each other and not just one time a year, but everyday of every year, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Twas the night before Christmas, before all the children get tucked in to bed, they work on their letter to Santa and leave him some snacks on the table with the letter, then as they lay to sleep, they dream of Santa leaving all on their list, underneath the big Christmas tree for them to wake up to. Santa loves reading all the notes by the little children, almost more than enough of him eating all the plates put together by the children, as his tummy might give away.

Santa Claus…..Saint Nick……The Big Guy……. There are many names for the guy who brings us all much joy, a guy for which gives us all so much and never asks for anything in return. Some may say he is not real, but how can that be, when a big piece of him is deep within the hearts and souls of us all. Oh! Santa……. How though art though, you big jolly fellow, who brings smiles too many, even if they are a sleep when you show up.

Twas the night before Christmas, not a peep was stirring, not even the dog nipping into the chilly air, one of the quietest nights of the year, as we leave midnight mass, for the journey home, to get all tucked in, for the big jolly guy, to come spreading his love and sharing ways with us all. For a big guy, he sure does move around quietly, softly and without a peep himself.

” Oh Holy night, the best Christmas song that best describes………… Twas the night before Christmas”

” Silent night of the night before Christmas, even for all as we wait for the joyful Christmas day”

” Merry Christmas to all as we all bring the joy and peace of Christmas, to all the days of the year, each and every year during this magical time of year”

Twas the night before Christmas

Slide 2 of 21: Founded in 1879 by Frank Winfield Woolworth, the company’s first stores in Utica, New York and Lancaster, Pennsylvania sold general merchandise and were called “five-and-dime’s” because everything sold for 10 cents or less. The chain grew quickly, and by 1905, Woolworth invited rival retailer chains (two were owned by his relatives!) to merge with him. By 1929, there were 2,250 stores. The company purchased other chains over the years, including Footlocker, though Woolworth variety stores closed in 1997. RELATED: 10 Things You Should Never, Ever Pass Up at Antique Shops

Twas the night before Christmas, back in a time for which we have totally taken for granted. A time when we walked together and were not worried of what may happen at our local department store? These small little department stores back then, where actually part of the community, unlike the big chain stores of today, where your just a number and they could care less of you, as they just want your hard earned money in their pockets, not yours. The department store like this of Woolworth’s, would actually take the time to get to know you and recognize you as their customer, they had counter space there, where you could grab a burger either for lunch, or maybe a day spent shopping, as you became Hungary for a quick bite. The day of the local department store may be a thing of the past, as the bigger store not just pushes them out, but pushes us to the side, as they proceed in taking our hard money, to line the lining of their pockets.

Back in that magical era of yesteryear, these small community department stores were the place to go and if you couldn’t add change in your head, Oh Well!!!!! Then the pennies didn’t add up at the end of the day. Now this didn’t really bother the Owner of the store too much, as he always kept the customer happy, for it is this type of Business smarts, that developed the ” Loyal consumer”, where now with the big store chains, the Loyalty has flown the coup within this Society. Just imagine walking into the store and totally forgetting what you went in there for? This would happen all the time back then, as you and the Owner became friends and would chat each time you went into the store.

As a Youngster we all remember going to these small community department stores with our Mom’s, getting fitted with back to school clothes, or the Sunday best clothes, now as we are all grown, both you and Mom, how times change where now we are the ones bringing Mom shopping, except for the fact that, the small community stores, are now replaced by the big chain non personal store. Times change, people change, things change, everything around us changes and if we don’t learn to accept or adapt, then we will be left in the dust of the change, forever trying to catch up against all odds.

Twas the night before Christmas and even back in a time, of the small community department store, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse, as all were waiting for the arrival, of that big jolly of a man, in a red suit, that brought us great Christmas joy and a smile to all of our faces. We were all frozen under the blankets, afraid to move, for we did not want to make it onto the naughty list? In a way I do miss these stores, as for a short time, we were actually treated as someone and not treated as just a number, plus with no customer loyalty, the days of brand loyalty are gone as well, as now it has become basically the flavor of the month club.

” Twas the night before Christmas and the stillness is deafening, as we all get ready for a jolly soul”

” Woolworth’s not much in the name, within the community though, it’s worth was like a pot of gold, with personality and integrity”

” Pennies from heaven, a youngster at heart, the community stores will never leave us, with nostalgia at every turn”

” Loyalty was the key to their success, with the bigger chain, there is no more loyalty, leaving us all out to dry”
