True country music……. the Gospel of all music

sheryl_crow

 

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

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

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

Some of the best singers and songwriters out there are really good storytellers also, they take their stories to work their magic and turn them into beautiful songs for us all to enjoy. These country songs will inspire greatly as well and more so than any other type of genre. Country music has the healing power of which the writers and the singers may seem so special when they heal you from your pains, as you walk your paths through this journey of life. When you need to be inspired for whatever you may be going through, simply tune into any country station on your radio dial and let the power of country music, inspire you in ways you have never been inspired before. When you listen to the right songs at the right time, you will be inspired in many different ways, to become better and stronger moving forward.

 

” The Gospel of country music, okay it’s not the Bible with the words of Jesus Christ, but these words will inspire you as well”

” The many stories coming from the words of country music to inspire and heal you throughout this journey”

” There are many genres of music out there as they all have their style to put us in different moods each day with each step”

Journalism is an art and a feeling from the heart, not building more drama.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

A true Journalist writes from the heart, a true journalist truly feels what they are writing, a Journalist will never write to fill a column within a publication just to put a check in their pockets. In today’s world of Journalism, there are very few left who write from the feelings within anymore. A News Reporter at one point used to go out and with boots on the ground, dig up the true facts of a story, now they sit in a cubicle with their computers on and bring other stories out, while they twist around the spoken word, just to try to get published within the publication for who they work. With these Publications, it is all about drama first and this is and always will be the agenda of these publications, the drama is what sells, unfortunately, as it is the drama that helps all the Executives and Editors with their big paychecks to live their carefree and exotic lifestyles, for as long as we the people keep buying into and buying their publications, then I am sorry but this drama will never end. Now I get the fact that we want the news and want to wake up in the morning with a coffee and newspaper at the breakfast table, but gone are the days of the Ward cleaver’s of the world, if you don’t know Ward Cleaver? He was the father on the show leave it to Beaver, where they did some cuts with him at the breakfast table before work and sipping coffee while reading the newspaper.

In today’s world, people don’t take the time anymore to sit and relax with a coffee and a newspaper, so these same publications have to do something to sell the print and keep the money in their pockets, so they moved to a drama-filled agenda, an agenda where they have taken a Journalist and turned them into a factory of words, instead of letting them create true words from the heart with feeling. Writers like Stephen King are true Journalists, they write with feeling and conviction, they write for themselves first, before any kind of drama is brought to you and me. You can tell the difference between a drama writer and a true Journalist, as much as these publication writers care to admit to? These agenda and drama writers are the reason why this society is broken, why this society is so full of chaos, hatred, and ugliness. The rash of mass shootings lately, number one is the fault of the mentally deranged Individual with the gun, then I will call out these drama full media types, as they pretty much glorify the shooter, so the next one will now try to outdo the last one, this has become a big vicious circle of which the chains of the circle need to be broken, to bring peace to all the rest of us.

You have these Individuals who call themselves Politicians? I call them and especially the Democratic party right now, an Individual that will do and say anything, so they can get an office within the walls of Washington DC and let the power and the corruption go to their heads. Now with these mass shootings, you have what is known as the 48-hour rule, which is when a tragedy happens, you never speak ill of the situation and let the proper officials do their jobs they are trained to do, but right now, especially those running for the office of president, which happens to be the democratic side, they can’t even wait 48 seconds before they are totally putting a political spin on the situation, making the job harder for our truly trained Professionals to do the job they were trained to do. All these candidates will pick a subject and even if they know nothing of that subject, will say anything like they are the best thing and the answer to that subject? They will lie as they are talking of the subject to the point that, if you keep saying the lie enough times, it then becomes reality in their own heads, which in a way is sad, only because it is we the people who suffer most, when these so-called Politicians or better known as a political hack, totally gets their way with we the people paying the price for their way. These Democratic candidates are all on Twitter as am I, let me just say, they all tweet out more than President Trump as much as they will point the finger to him, plus I will put out there the beginning to most of their tweets, ” When I am President”, I got a news flash for all of you, only one can become President and it lasts for four years, so I think all of you need to wake up out of denial and get back to true reality.

A Journalist is someone that writes true facts, writes from the heart and with true feelings as well. A Journalist does not write for an agenda full of drama, nor do they write for a paycheck, true getting paid for your craft is the goal, I mean look at Stephen King, he has become a millionaire for his true writing skill, although he has earned it and those within the fake news media has earned nothing but shown the door, simply because they are trying to impersonate a true writer. A true writer is like an artist who paints on a canvas, they express themselves with their true feelings, they put their heart and soul onto the canvas, the only difference between a writer and an artist is, one expresses themselves with a brush, the other does so with a pencil onto paper, but they both do so while showing true feelings and emotions for a craft they love so much.

 

” A journalist writes from the heart with real feelings, an agenda writer does nothing but creates more unwanted drama”

” A newspaper is a dying thing because one…………. online is the way to go today, two………. because a journalist is not what they used to be”

” The 48-hour rule shows dignity and respect, the 48-second rule shows how stupid and disrespectful we have come”

” To keep the lie going and to make the lie reality, you have to keep repeating the same lie over and over, so it then becomes reality in your own head”

 

 

 

The quiet serenity of the journey

20170810_123212.jpg

The crisp cool air and the smooth waters, you can hear the paddle cutting through the water with each stroke, you embark on the water for the daily journey into the unknown. Life’s journey is full of unknowns as we walk our paths, but if you never get out and explore, you shall never uncover any of the unknowns and never truly experience any of the beauty that is truly around you.

Within this society, we all get so wrapped in, we forget that there is so much more to this journey, we get so wrapped up in the drama, the ugliness, and the hatred, that we then become someone for who we truly are not, with so much more to explore within this journey, we would clearly see that there is a whole different world out there, unlike what we see within the everyday parts of our lives.

Everything changes, we the people change, we need to be able to adapt to all the changes or this journey will leave us all behind. Some would rather be stuck within all drama and the hatred, simply because we think that is all there is? There are many little journeys within this big journey through life, if you never get out and explore, you will never find any of the little journeys, that will totally help you heal from all the pain and hurt from a society that does not really care for you. from reasons that are beyond me, most within this society will step on another’s shine and won’t even miss a step of their own. We take so much for granted in this society today, we forget to get out and explore all that is truly around us.

There are some out there that think they know everything and they have all the answers, seriously now nobody has all the answers except Jesus Christ, but even a few do not even think he is real, Jesus came to us and walked his journey here with us, he showed us how to walk our paths as we show our love for one another and in the eyes of Jesus, there was never any hatred no matter of who you were. The hatred comes from us and is learned from us, we are our own worst enemies and we can fix this if we really wanted to, Jesus showed us how to walk our paths so we then can get to that path of righteousness, but we are so stubborn and so set in our ways, that we then can not see clearly enough through the clouds of our judgments.

When we take our vacations we then follow others as we go to places that are still full of chaos, ugliness, and hatred, then complain further that our vacation wasn’t really a vacation? We won’t even think of getting out to explore in places that have never been touched by man, simply because we have become so naive that, we think these places do not exist? These places are there and we just have to open our minds up to everything and not walk our paths with these blinders on from all that is around us. Some may not be able to get out as they suffer from a chronic illness that is out of their control, some may have suffered great pain and hurt from another, that keeps them hiding deep within and too scared to get out and explore, but if only we get out and explore the beauty within mother nature and the true beauty from places that have never been touched by man, we will never find the true peace and serenity that will heal us deeply from all the pain, the hurt and the sufferings from the world within this unforgiving society.

Let the paddle cut through the water as you move forward along the water, keep your eyes open as you never know what may be lurking in front of you, keep your ears open to all the sounds within nature, for you just might hear things that you have never heard before. We have become so accustomed to the sounds and scenery of the cities, that we have zero clues on the true sounds of nature, the only way to change that is to get out and explore, change the error of our ways, so we then can truly be of who we truly are and truly see all the beauty that is around us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” Get a canoe or a kayak and get out within nature to explore the true beauty all around us”

” Never get too stuck within the error of your ways to the point you never get out and explore all that is around you”

” There is a lot more to this journey than all the ugliness, the corruption, the hatred, and the pain and hurt brought by all this”

” The true sounds of nature will heal and bring much-wanted peace and serenity to us all”

 

 

Always look at everything, before you pass judgment moving forward.

There is a lot more to this journey through life for instance, take this picture now you may see a body of water surrounded by a bunch of plant life, now really what is in this picture? Unless you go out and explore and learn of what you are exploring, you will never know what this picture truly is. Within this picture was once a very vibrant industry in the past history of America, just that now it is all grown in with plant life and hiding within plain sight. Back in the time of the 1800’s, this body of water was a slate quarry within the heart of the green mountains in Vermont, yes you can now guess what is hidden deep within the water, but is there anything else hidden not just within this picture, but hidden deep within the water? You never know what is in front of you, you never know what is hidden in plain sight, which makes it that much more important to, not judge anything or anyone, before you truly know of what it is you are looking at.

Within this society and especially within the two political parties within the United States of America, they are way too quick to judge all that is around them and they never look at what is right in front of them, but they will quickly call anybody a ” Racist” that goes against them or, simply do not see what they are looking at. The Republicans are no angels by any stretch, but the Democratic party are so far in denial, they have lost all sense of reality and can not see clearly, through the clouds of their judgments. Anybody that has common sense can see that the far left Liberal Democrats and all that they control, are a total mess and needs to be cleaned up, there are area’s within this country that the Democrats have control of, that some are being forced to become homeless and live in conditions, that quite simply, a Human should never live within, all because these Individuals are looking out for themselves and could care less of the ones within their territory. These far left liberals think they know what is best for the rest of us, but do they really? They all have their agendas and within their agendas, has nothing to do with anybody within the district they control.

You want to talk of agendas? the agendas of the far left liberal media needs to change in the worst way, they will do anything to spread even more drama among us. They will report on stories that do nothing but keep the drama, corruption, the ugliness and the hatred front and center in front of us all, if a story does not include drama and is a very good emotional story, the chances of the media reporting on it are slim to none and slim just left the building, they would rather keep to the ” fake news” narrative, which keeps the money rolling into their pockets, so they can all live their plush exotic lifestyles, you think they care for the rest of us? If you think they do, then you as well are living within a dream world and can not see clearly through the clouds of your judgments.

The far left liberal Democrats and the far left liberal media are working together to keep their agendas front and center among us, the time is now for us all to see right through their agendas, stop paying for the publications and stop giving them any time or, just simply ignoring their ideologies and giving our attentions, to ideologies that actually make sense and can actually work for the benefit of us all, so we can move forward on our paths of this journey through life, better and stronger, while we all live in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” Always look deeply into what you see, so the clouds within your judgments are clear seeing all the beauty in front of you”

” We all want power and control of everything, but you first need the power and control within, before you step outside the box of reality”

” Two political parties when working together are what is best for us all, but when they bang heads and let the power of denial take control, leads to all the corruption and ugliness we see around us today”

” Socialism never works, just look around you in the present day and look deep within the history of the world, to see more clearly on what it leads to”

 

 

A Society of zero Accountability equals a Society down a slippery slope……..

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Accountability first and for most starts with each one of us holding ourselves accountable for our own actions, before we can even think of holding each other accountable. Right now within this society there is way too much finger pointing and not enough holding ourselves accountable for our own actions. Yes it is very true that because we are Human, we do make mistakes from time to time, but when we do not hold ourselves accountable for those mistakes, then the mistakes get bigger, instead of correcting them and keeping them at a minimum. When we do not own up to our mistakes and point the finger towards another, then the mistakes will compound, not only turning them into something bigger than they have to be, but then the pain from the mistakes will hurt us all deeply, which then keeps us from the solution of being held accountable for our actions and keeping the pain from truly hurting us very deeply.

This picture was once a very vibrant slate quarry, that produced a huge amount of slate, back within the 1800’s, now I get the fact that there is always change that will come into our lives, but when change comes to an industry so vibrant for some other that just may not fill the void, then why change that? Now this quarry is sitting dormant for all these years, with all the fresh growth of Mother Nature all around it, covering what was once open and full of life. Just maybe there are a lot of hidden truths hidden deep within all the fresh growths, just maybe that they to back then went through their non accountability days and now look at what has happened? It seems funny that we all think we have the solutions for everything, but yet look at all the ugliness, the hatred and the crap that is all around us everyday, with none of us truly taking any accountability for our own actions.

There are some who are making it their mission to strip us of all the past, but seriously you need to look back at what was, in order to move forward better and stronger, you learn from your mistakes to be better, well the same goes from one society to another and when you learn from the mistakes of an earlier society, than just maybe a lot of this ugliness and hatred will go away? We the people of this society are the biggest problem within this society and when we do not hold ourselves accountable for our own actions, it then snowballs to the rest of us within this society and becomes bigger than it has to be.

You than have some that will take it upon themselves to control everything around them and will do anything for that control. They do things to others they know is wrong, but will rationalize away the accountability of their actions, just so they can seem to themselves as the most powerful over all? Meanwhile the ones that they take control of, have now become a victim of their control and with that victimization comes, a very deep pain and hurt, which the person in control who takes no responsibility or accountability of their actions, keeps doing as they are only because they think they are doing nothing wrong, then the powers of denial take over and when denial comes into play, then any responsibility and accountability become lost deep within the souls of us all.

This society is so driven to have all the power of each other, that all the responsibility and the accountability are lost deep within our souls and when you look deeply into each others eyes, you will clearly see that the denial has taken over, leaving us all deep within trying to escape the power of the denial. When denial has it’s grasp on us so tightly, we then lose sight of all true reality, we will never admit to this fact only because we do not want to admit to our faults, this is exactly why we are in a this broken society of, no responsibility and no accountability. Yes there is a way out of this and it will take each one of us being on the same page, we need to get over our own arrogance and truly look deep within our hearts and souls, find that the love of Jesus Christ is always there, just that we have never acknowledged his love. When we acknowledge his love and our hearts and souls are full of it, we then feel this warmth within us, that we than share with each other. It is a lot easier to share this love, than to share all the hatred and the ugliness we have been sharing. With the love of Jesus Christ warming our hearts and souls, we will then find that true peace we have always been looking for. True peace is never within the world of no responsibility or accountability, the only thing that comes from that world is the pain and hurt that hurts us so deeply.

Life within this society could be a whole lot easier if only we all did it correctly, instead of trying to control everything and everybody we can. We are all equal in the eyes of Jesus Christ, the only thing different is that we are all unique to each other. I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of people in this society that keep playing the race card? This is one of the uniqueness we bring to each other, but some will try to step on the toes of another, just so they can come across as more powerful than another? We need to stop trying to attack one another and start seeing each other as Jesus see’s us and that is, we are more equal than we think, when we do this we will find that the love of Jesus Christ will flow like water, out of each one of us, as we all move forward and walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” Responsibility and accountability goes hand and hand with each other, like peas in a pod”

” Accountability starts with ourselves then bleeds to each other within this society”

” To rationalize and deny, is what leads to no responsibility or accountability and all the ugliness and hatred around us”

” Power and control when achieved in the wrong way, will always come with much pain and hurt to us all”

 

Get out and explore

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Step out of your comfort zone, get away of the things that has become your norm, learn new things, as you stay true to who you are and always, never lose sight of who you truly are. There is so much we accumulate throughout this journey we walk, but what we take for granted is, these material things can be taken from us, as the knowledge we have within ourselves, can never be taken and is always ours no matter of what happens to us. When you go out and explore new things, whether it is doing something different at your 9 to 5, or it is getting out within nature, you are not only gaining confidence in yourself, you are gaining more knowledge, for which you can keep within you, to make you smarter and wiser, as you walk your path of this journey through life.

The trail may look in disarray, or maybe not well marked? But when you stay true to who you are and confident in your abilities, you will always see clearly of where to go and always see clearly of all the true beauty all around you. Unfortunately within a society full of ugliness, hate and corruption, it is very easy to become consumed within it, lose sight of who you truly are, as now you are trying to protect yourself from any harm coming to you, then enters the power of denial, which it will control everything about you and it will control every fiber of your being. Denial will have you see things that are not really there, as you then create this fake reality, which now you become part of the lies and the rhetoric, which is the furthest thing from the true reality.

Not all the trails within nature are clearly marked as you get out and explore, but as you stay true to who you are, these trails will always lead you to great things and never will you become lost, the confidence in your abilities will have you blazing the trail as if it was clearly marked for the direction you want to go. While walking the trail you may come across and see things you normally would not see, you will hear sounds that at first will have you a bit nervous, as later you find the source of the sounds and realize, that the source is also out exploring themselves along their path of this journey. There is so much to this journey, that unless you get out and explore, you will just never know of how much there truly is.

Too someone who just walks through the woods without clearly looking at what they are seeing, they will only see the woods as a mess, with the leaves littering the ground, tree’s and limbs hanging everywhere around, rocks put into places to trip you up, the thick brush making it hard to see where you are going, but too someone who gets out to explore and is true to themselves, will see a different picture within nature, they will see true life, erosion, change and when they look at where they are going, they will see around the thick brush, to blaze their path that others have never tried, you look to the sun in the sky to calculate time and in which direction you are going. How do you think Mankind survived, back in a time without all this technology, a time where cell phones were not even a thought in someone’s brain, we are so consumed within the ugliness of this society, we don’t let ourselves see other societies, that have blazed the trails for us.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, there are many things out there that will trip us up, hurt us with real pain, turn us into someone we truly are not, plus not too mention of the society we live, full of ugliness, hatred and corruption, the easy part is too hide within ourselves to protect ourselves from the pain and hurt, but while we do this we are suppressing further down inside, the love within ourselves, so now the love is know where to be seen. The thing that we forget is, the hate is learned from somewhere and harder to keep going, as the love is already within us and much easier to spread among each other daily, if we all just stay true to ourselves, be who we are always, we will find that all this ugliness, hatred and corruption will disappear, as this is not truly of who we are. We the people have created all this ugliness, hatred and corruption, it is we the people that can end it all also, we just have to stay true to who we are and never become someone for who we are not, so we can stay in touch with the love inside ourselves, as we spread this love with each other, just as Jesus did, when he came to us and walked his journey here with us.

 

” Get out and explore all that is around you and stay true to who you are throughout this journey always”

” Step out of your comfort zone and gain the confidence to walk your path of this journey through life”

” The trails within nature to some may be messy, to others it’s the most beautiful of all the trails”

” All this ugliness, hatred and corruption is hurting us so bad, we are all becoming someone we truly are not”

 

 

Living the Dream………….

” Living the Dream”? What exactly does this mean? I have been hearing this a lot lately, now I know this saying has been around probably for as long as Mankind? But seriously what exactly does it mean, especially when we all have different dreams from each other.

For me living the dream would be on my own little Island with all I need and away from all the chaos, ugliness and hatred, that is within this society of today. Maybe for someone else it might be, being free to do whatever they want to do and whenever they want to do it, just maybe someones dream would be like the American Dream? Which consists of, a house, a white picket fence, a family and a pet, now what most take for granted is, they both still are a dream and we all dream differently, with no two dreams being alike.

Do dreams really come true? Well……………… The jury is still out deliberating on this one, only because everything that comes to us, is there for a reason, everything that happens to us happens for a reason, it is just that we have to find that reason, so we than can move forward on our paths of this journey, better and stronger than ever before. It’s the reason part that we take for granted and most of us, never truly understand this part, so we usually skip this this and move on to the next part of the journey, which then has us all never finding any kind of reason for anything at all. As we walk through this journey. People and things come across our paths, they all have a reason for crossing our paths and will just never…. Just happen, for instance………… Someone wins big on a lottery scratch ticket, this doesn’t happen just because you picked the right ticket, it happened for a reason and it’s up to you to find that reason, so you than can truly understand the phrase of ” Living the Dream”.

True that living the dream is a form of reality for us all with different outcomes for each of us, so now the next time someone says to you ” hey how are you doing”, you can respond in a different way with the same words of living the dream, as now you actually mean what you say, with a true reasoning for whatever dream you are living.

Most dreams usually happen at night while we are sleeping and when we wake, we usually do not remember what we dreamt of while we slept, so as we say to each other the words of, ” living the dream”, how can we actually live a dream if we are awake within reality? With a dream we either do not remember, or it is something fictitious that never really happens. I think maybe we all get so caught up within our own little worlds, with these worlds becoming our own little safe havens, that we then look at them kind of like being on our own little islands, as we try to escape all the ugliness and hatred that is around us today? We can day dream of something, but mostly of what a day dream is, we are escaping the ugliness of what is around us at the present time, either way we look at what a dream is, it is still something fictitious, so we than can escape whether for a short time, the reality of our paths we walk, through this journey of life.

” Living the dream is something we say to each other as it is only a fictitious reality and not true reality”

” Some may be fortunate enough to actually remember their nightly dreams, as most do not, a dream is still just a dream and not true reality”

” A day dream is our way of escaping our realities even just for a short time”

” Everything that comes to us and happens to us there is a reason for it, it then lies on us to find that reason so we can understand better our realities as we walk our paths through this journey of life”

The Greatest Generation

Slide 61 of 100
This was a generation that without even thinking, would stand up and be counted, they stood up and weren’t afraid to face anything that crossed their paths they were walking, this generation has been through so much more, then any other generation that followed them. In today’s generation and within this political correct world, plus with all the technology we have become weak and lazy. Today’s generation couldn’t even hold the jock strap, of the generation from WW2. It’s just not the fact that, the greatest generation going and fighting for all the generations that would follow them, these guys were not selfish, unlike those of today with their selfies. This generation wouldn’t just sit on their A$$es while others went to battle, unlike today’s generation that can’t even get out of their own way, plus today’s generation or at least a high percentage of them, would never go into the Armed forces to fight the good fight, they would rather stay home and play their video games, instead of truly fighting for what they believe in. If it wasn’t for the greatest generation, we of today maybe would never have all the freedoms we have? Maybe we would of been invaded and then forced to be someone for who we truly are not? Or even just maybe we would of been dictated to, told when to use the bathroom, or even wouldn’t of been able to work and put food on our own tables. When you look at some of the cultures out there within this world, we are free to do as we want everyday and we owe that to those of the greatest generation. We buy our own houses today so we can live pretty comfortable and have a decent roof over our heads, but what about the thought of living under a lean to with only two small sides and a roof made out of brush, then when the winter months came, we all froze to the point that, only the strong and healthy survive. The fact is, life would of been a lot different if it wasn’t for these, brave men and woman, who gave a big part of themselves, so we of today can be free, to do all we do, with the freedom to roam as we may, without having to answer to anybody, except ourselves with the actions we are free to take. These men in this boat are getting ready to be unloaded to fight the good fight, but by the smiles on their faces may have us think it was easy of what they did? It was far from easy as they gave their all, for what they truly believed in, some come home not of the same person as they went there with, while they were missing parts, or not even came home at all. We of this society take so much for granted, as those of that generation sacrificed so much and got back so little. We don’t even think of these Individuals for what they did for us, we of this generation lack respect of each other and with that lack of respect, proves further that we do not respect those of yesteryear, which clearly shows why, we are so full of ourselves, that we can not see any good that may be around us. We all walk a path through this journey of life, there is a lot of this journey that we can not do alone, so we need each other as these brave young and woman did along their journey, not too mention their selfless acts for the good for all the generations to come. ” D-day the storming on the Juno beach in Normandy, done by such brave men, for the good of us all in the future generations to come” ” We take so much for granted in today’s world, then get lazy as we play the video games we think is our reality” ” Freedom is never Free, as somewhere and someone has given their all for the freedom we have today”

There is no ” I” in Team……..

To be a Champion in any team sport, comes down to the fact that, it’s not about one or two guys, it is totally a team effort and the Boston Bruins have proved that with the great season they are having. On the verge of yet another Stanley cup victory and the way they as a team rebounded from a lack luster performance in game two, they go two games to one in game three, in the best of a seven game series. Game three wasn’t just a win for the Bruins, they did so in the house of the St. Louis blues and in a dominating way, final score was seven to two, while going four for four on the power play also. This team has a good mix of veteran players, as well as great young talent, with a coach that has his finger on the pulse of each game. Chemistry is another part of being a true champion, it is how you are respected by your teammates, knowing your teammates so you can move as one on the ice with pin point passing, as you gain control of the puck away from the other team. The team whether on the ice or off the ice, has to bond together and be ready to battle for each other, like being a family, with the coaches being the parents of the family. These Boston Bruins are a special group, that have come together in harmony, as they put aside the ego’s to work hard at achieving the most prestigious trophy in all of sports…………….. Lord’s Stanley cup.

The Bruins might of dominated in last nights game three match up, but let’s not forget the St. Louis Blues, this team is built very similar to the Bruins, I am sure game four these Blues will be ready to battle once again, the Bruins will have to be ready for the fight and respond as they did in game three. To get this far and be the last two teams standing within the league, with a chance of being the champions of the hockey world, says a lot of both these teams, now with these Bruins being two wins away from the coveted prize, is no time to become comfortable, as the last two wins are just as hard as the last fourteen. For those true fans of the game of hockey, you have basically two seasons in one and we the fans are blessed with such a great game, now through the years the game has had some changes to it, like being a much faster game then years before, but the basics of the game stay in tact, like the first season being the regular season and the second season being the playoffs. With the playoffs there is a slogan we call ” Mission sixteen”, basically we call it that because it takes sixteen wins to win the playoffs and become the keeper of Lord’s Stanley’s cup.

My earliest memory of these Bruins was also against the St. Louis Blues, with the now famous greatest player to ever lace up the skates………… He is Bobby Orr and with an assist from Derek Sanderson, the rest is history with Bobby flying through the air in front of the goalie, for the goal and the winner of Lord’s Stanley’s cup. The Boston Bruins have a rich history and being one of the six original teams within the National Hockey League, not too mention some of the great hockey talent to wear the spoke “B” on their chest, is the reason why I myself Bleed black and gold. With two more wins this special team of the Boston Bruins can cement their names within the rich history of the organization.

Like Tom Brady has become the G. O. A. T. of the football world, we here in the city of Boston has witnessed two G. O. A. T’s of their sports, with Tom Brady and Bobby Orr. There is a lot of sports history here in the city of Boston and with the Bruins on the brink of winning a championship, along with the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots all in the same season, which hasn’t been done since the season of 1935/1936, truly gives this city of Boston the title of ” Titletown U. S. A.”.

I love the game of hockey, played the game when I was younger and with my favorite team so deep in the playoffs, like two wins away from winning Lord’s Stanley’s cup deep, it is very exciting right now, with all eyes on this special team. A team that has battled adversity all season, a team that has bonded together more than a team, they have bonded like a family on and off the ice and has been fun too watch this bonding all season. This team has been resilient all season and watching them in game two and game three, proves just how resilient they are, with an ugly performance in two, and a great performance in three. Would love to see this team finish mission sixteen, as not just for the reward for the players on a great season, but for the third time in the same season, the city of Boston can cue the Duck boats once again, for this type of celebration will never get old, especially with my favorite team.

” In team sports there is never an I, as it takes the whole team to work as one and become a true champion”

” The Stanley cup is the most prestigious and hardest trophy to win of all the sports, which makes hockey the coolest game on ice”

” To be a G. O. A. T. of your sport means that you are the Greatest Of All Time”

” Mission 16 in the game of hockey starts with the playoffs as you are on a mission to win 16 more games to be a true champion of the sport you play and love”

Uncharted Water’s

Through the uncharted water’s there is much uncharted land for which to explore and see all the true beauty that is within. At first glance it may not look that inviting? But when you look deeply within as you walk within the dense forest, you clearly see what is hiding deep within the forest, it’s true beauty and the heartbeat of Mother Nature. Land that is still untouched by man, land that the Wildlife roam free, land that in a lot of places you need a canoe or a kayak to get to, as there are no roads leading into it, which is why this land still holds it’s true beauty today.

Some within today’s society get so caught up within the cities, they have no idea of the true beauty around them, they have no idea that there is still uncharted land and water’s all around them, the only way to see this is, to really get out and explore all that is around you. We all work our 9 to 5’s, do our everyday chores, take vacations within our favorite places every year, instead off doing something different, we all get so caught up within the same routine, that we forget there is a far bigger world out there and even a world that, gets lost in the shuffle of life. There is so much to explore, that we don’t even try simply because, we don’t want to get away from the comfort zone we are currently within. Very true within this society we need to make money to survive, but while we are busy making that money, real life is passing us by. we go to our 9 to 5’s and in the process of us making money, we step on each other shine without even seeing at where we are stepping, only because we use each other to get ahead of each other, we think that this is the norm? But this is far from the norm and totally why there is so much ugliness and hatred all around us.

Then there are these ones who totally say what we want to hear, so they can get our votes and become our so called leader’s, as they then forget of what they said to us and only do as they wish for their own agendas? They bicker and attack their fellow constituents, as if we are not here…………. The people who not only put them in office, but the people who they actually work for. There are two parties within the walls of Washington DC, but the way they are all so divided, you would think there are many more than two? They totally think they are doing us all a favor by being in the walls of Washington DC, they really have no clue of how to do the proper job that they are suppose to do. But what they can not see is, the fact that their ideas are so whacked, but yet still push them on the rest of us.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, but when we don’t get out and explore all the uncharted lands and the water, then we are not truly walking through this journey as we should be, we are becoming so stagnant that, we are getting in each others way, instead of helping and loving one another, as Jesus showed us when he came to us and walked his journey with us. There is so much more to this journey, but unless we get out and explore, we will never experience the more and only keep furthering, what we may think is all what this life holds.

” The uncharted waters and the uncharted lands, they are their for us to explore, to see the true beauty and keep moving forward better always”

” We are all so full of ourselves, we clearly can not see any good that is around us”

” The two party system does work, just that we can’t stop fighting with each other to truly see that it does work”

” With the true faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, the uncharted waters we shall see is there for us to explore and cleanse us of our pain and hurt”
