With Growth comes change

” Don’t be afraid”

Matthew 28:10

” Love the Lord your God with all your heart… and your neighbor as yourself”

Luke 10:27

Come my Shepard, let’s lead the Sheep to peace, happiness, and a good feast, but never shall we lead them astray, or into the great Abyss of the deep dark unknown. We all walk our paths through this journey of life, as the paths being different from one another, the journey is the same for us all, with the beginning and the ending being the same for us all, it is the middle part that our paths we chose will help define who we truly are. Now as we walk through this journey there will be much that will come to us, there is so much that we will encounter, we may get lost from time to time trying to find our way. The growth and the change that comes to us can, and will be over whelming, so over whelming they may have us lose our way? We not only grow on the outside with how tall or short we are, we also grow on the inside with our true feelings and emotions. We will also grow within a society of many to be better and stronger, but if we do not grow properly within the society, then we get left behind and ridiculed from all others. If we do not grow properly on the inside as well as the outside, then the change that will come is either going to be positive or negative.

Just like with faith there will be hope same goes for, when you grow properly, then the change that will come will be positive. anything or anyone will never escape change of any kind, it is part of this journey. Everything around us changes even we ourselves will change as we grow. We are not the same person from when we are born, till the day of our last breathe, the things we can do at a young age, we find we can’t do as we become older, and when we are older we are much wiser then when we are young. Our bodies will go through many changes on the exterior as well as the interior, which is why we need to grow properly, so we can accept any and all the change that will come to us, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

Somewhere along this journey we all have become disconnected with each other, We think we are better than one another and that we are smarter than one another? Yes we are all unique to each other, but we are all very similar with all the same faculties and parts. True some may look different with their skin color, but in the eyes of God, we are all the same no matter who you are. Very true that we all serve a purpose as we walk this journey, just that the problem then is, some may find that purpose, while other’s wander aimlessly along their paths. Some because of other factors never truly live up to who they are, they get passed up and left behind, then the ones who passed them think now they are better and smarter? Some may learn faster as others, but this is no way to determine that you are better? We all learn at our own pace as we grow within the society, then as the change comes to us, we all then become wiser as we grow old.

Within this society we all live today, there are some who think they are better than us all, as they try to achieve all the power, control and greed over the rest of us. I have a news flash for you: Nobody is better than anyone, we are all similar and equal to each other, the only difference is, we are all unique to each other, and when we come together with this uniqueness, then we all can change and grow properly and be better and stronger moving forward. There is nothing we can not do when we grow properly and accept change with confidence, there is no one who is smarter or better then ourselves, only that we all learn at our own pace, and when we take care of that inner child within us properly, then we can not only grow properly on the exterior, we can also grow properly on the interior as well.

Not only do we grow and change as we walk our paths of this journey, there is the plant life, the wildlife, the sky, the bodies of water, mother nature, etc. Everything around us grows and changes as well. There is so much growth and change going on within the calendar year of the four seasons, it is hard to keep up with and at times take totally for granted, the death within the season of Fall of all the plant life, to the white Winter blanket of the cold winter months, then the re-birth of the Spring months, to the vibrancy of the Summer months, the change within the seasons is enough to very easily lose track of. From year to year as you venture out within mother nature, you can clearly see all the changes, one thing you may see one year, may not be the same the next year. Everything throughout this journey of life will go through change, which then leads to how we grow properly, so we can walk our paths in peace and happiness always.

” With faith there will be hope, through change there will be growth”

” The Shepard will lead the Sheep throughout their journey, but that does not mean the Sheep can not lead themselves or that we can not be the Shepard ”

The “Christ”mas Spirit

” The true Christmas spirit is nothing of the commercial variety, it is all about sharing the Love within ourselves……….with each other”  

                                                         ***BowlingChef*** 

               Contrary to what we may think within this society, Christmas is not all about the buying or receiving of gifts, it is totally all about the sharing of the only thing that should matter and that is, the sharing of ourselves with each other and the sharing of the love deep within all our hearts. 

               Unfortunately as we all walk through this society of today, Plus the way we have become so wrapped up within our own arrogance,   we let all the corruption cloud our judgments, as we then let all the ugliness simply walk into our front door. Instead of simply letting the love flow, we hide it so deep within ourselves, that we forget of the true feeling it brings, we forget that through love, it will help us keep the faith, as our hope grows while we move forward throughout this journey. 

                 Christmas the holiday may come but once a year, the real truth is, the warmth of Christmas and the joy that it brings, does not have to be held to once a year, it can last everyday of every year, for as we walk our paths through this journey of life. 

                   The true Christmas spirit can not be seen, it can never be just turned off like the water flowing out of the faucet, it is within us all which then becomes a feeling and a deep feeling at that, it warms our soul and soothes our mind, so we  than can keep moving forward better and stronger. 

               The feeling of love deep within our hearts and souls, is so much easier to share, than this ugliness and hatred that consumes us now. the problem with that is, we are all guilty of hiding deep within ourselves, in order to keep further harm from hurting us, we walk through this society with blinders on and become someone for who we truly are not, just so others will perceive us as strong, when in reality we are being weak, as we try to minimize the pain and hurt that may come to us. ” True strength comes from being true to who you are”. 

So with another Christmas season coming upon us, let us all stop the commercialization  of what Christmas has become and get back to the true meaning of “Christ”mas, as not only do we share our love with each other during this time, we do so all year, everyday, as we walk our path through this journey of life. 

” The true Christmas spirit is within us all, time we truly feel the love within our hearts and share it with each other” 

” Christmas has nothing to do with any store and buying of any presents, as the only thing we should be sharing is our love with each other” 

” Jesus Christ was born on Christmas day, he died on the cross for us all showing his love for us all, it has nothing to do with any store or decorating of the store”
