Follow Jesus and be enlightened throughout this journey

Bill Koch owns a roughly 90-acre estate known as Elk Mountain Lodge near Aspen. He listed it in 2016 for $80 million, but has since taken it off the market.

” Come after me, and I will make you Fishers of men”

Mt: 4:19

 

 

 

We of this society would rather live in frustration for what we can not do than to truly follow and have complete faith in Jesus Christ, for he will truly lead us and never lead us astray anywhere on our paths of this journey. We of this society think that success comes from stepping on another’s shine, but true success comes from true faith in Jesus Christ to lead us to the path of righteousness, so we all can have hope moving forward with strength and be true of who we are.

Jesus Christ did not come here for himself, he came here for you and me to prosper on this journey, but yet we all within this society have gone the complete opposite of what he taught us as he walked his journey. We of this society think that we can do better at everything, that we do not need help with anything, we also think we are smarter than all those who have walked before us? We are all so confused within this society that we have lost the faith of everything that is good, which now leaves us with no hope moving forward through all the hatred around us.

This world today is so full of ugliness and hatred only because we have lost all faith in not just ourselves, but lost all faith in Jesus Christ our savior. This quote today is more than just what you may think of as being a Fishermen when you become a fisher of men, you have opened your heart and soul to Jesus Christ, you truly believe with true faith that Jesus is good and will never lead you astray, so now as you follow Jesus with your heart, you can then lead others to the same promise land, that Jesus has led you to as well. No matter how troubled you think you are, with the true faith and belief in Jesus Christ, you will always have the hope for a better and smoother path, as you walk through this journey of life.

No matter where you go throughout this planet, you can see all the corruption, you can see all the ugliness and hate, this is just how sad this society truly is today, it only goes to show just how many have lost all faith in themselves as well as Jesus Christ, which now leaves us with no hope moving forward and for those who still have the true faith, makes it that much harder for them to walk forward with confidence throughout this journey. Our so-called leaders can not truly lead anymore, even some who wear the cloth has lost this faith and have become corrupt with great ugliness, when all around us have become engulfed in this corruption, ugliness, and hatred, then where do we turn? We turn to Jesus Christ and reach down deep within, to truly feel his love for each of us, his love is always deep within our hearts and souls, just that we need to have complete trust in him, so we then can have complete faith and the hope will follow us all, all we need to do is, not only reach down deep within, but totally acknowledge Jesus, so he then can help us all no matter how troubled you think you are.

We all may walk our own paths, but the journey we walk them in is all the same, we all start out the same, then our paths bring us to different locations as some may intersect at different times, then we all have the same ending to this journey, but the biggest part is the fact that the time in the middle is where we all go wrong, especially when we lose touch with everything around us, lose touch with ourselves and most of all, lose touch with Jesus Christ our Savior. When we truly acknowledge Jesus and love him as he loves us, then no matter what trouble that may come to you, then our faith will never leave us as we will all move forward with the hope, to walk this journey in peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” A fisherman will catch the fish for all to eat and not starve, as a fisher of men will gather all in the love of Jesus to move forward to be better and stronger”

 

” Out of frustration we may do things not truly of who we are, out of love we can truly be of who we are”

 

” Corruption, ugliness and hatred are signs from Satan, as love comes from Jesus to help us grow in a positive way”

 

 

 

The Journey to the top

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The journey to the top can encompass many things, it’s not just hiking within the wilderness and reaching the summit of a mountain, it is also about reaching the pinnacle of your career and working your way to the top within the company you work. Both can and will be a lot of work, one being the hike up a mountain will drain you both physically and mentally, while depending on where you work it can involve more mental than physical? No matter which journey you are on, it will bring you great rewards when you achieve all that you want to achieve, especially when you reach the summit and not only breathe in the fresh air, but totally take in all the true beauty all around you.

The journey through the wilderness on your way to the summit of the mountain will hold so much beauty around you, that it keeps all your senses in tune to everything like the birds singing from tree to tree, the branches whistling as they sway in the breeze from the air, your sense of smell coming alive as the fresh aroma of the fresh air the plants and the wildflowers make your nose tickle with envy, your ears seem to be more active and amplified as all the sounds within nature have them totally in tune with all that is around you and will have you hear even a twig snap from a good distance away, then as you look out at what you are seeing, your eyes then will have you more in focus with all that you may come across as you walk the journey to the summit of the mountain and as you reach the summit of the mountain, now you really see clearly for many miles all around you.

The journey within the path you take in your career choice is a whole lot different than the journey to the summit of the mountain, the drive you have within you so you can work to reach the pinnacle of your career is similar but different as you work hard in your career, you now lose out on the true beauty around you, as you focus solely on the job and reaching the summit within the company you work. Now we all can not reach the summit within our career choices, but we all can reach the summits of the mountains we chose to walk a path upon, within our careers and with all our hard work, now we become too tired to venture out within an adventure, we then stay within our inner circles without getting out within nature, seeing all the same things day after day, keeping the same routines from week to week, then not only taking everything for granted but totally forgetting that there is a whole lot more out there and a whole lot more beauty around us as well. True that we need the journey within our careers to make ends meet, but if we do not acknowledge all the other journeys also, now the path we walk through this journey of life, just may become boring and have us wandering, instead of actually walking with confidence, all the little journeys within this one big journey.

The journey to the top of anything can and will come with some work on our part, but that’s just it, we need to work in order to reap all the benefits no matter what the journey for which we walk. Nothing comes easy and nothing will come freely, which is why we work hard, so we then can reap all the benefits and see all the true beauty that is all around us, at every turn along our paths of this journey through life.

 

” The journey to the top comes in many different ways and will always reward us in just as many ways as well”

 

” There is much beauty all around us with the key being we just need to focus and truly look deeply into what we see”

 

” When we are out of focus then no matter what we look at will never be clear for us to see”

 

 

Within the walls of Washington DC

Slide 8 of 59: In this image from video, Senators vote to table an amendment by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., during the impeachment trial against President Donald Trump in the Senate at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2020. (Senate Television via AP)

Okay, so here we go again except this time we are within the walls of the Senate. Now I get the fact that we need the two-party system in order for all to balance out, but when the two parties just can not get together on the same page and work together, then it is time to change the Individuals within the parties so our so-called leaders can actually lead and work for the hefty salaries they are getting, not to mention the free healthcare as well.

A Politician will say whatever they can to us, just for us to like them and vote for them, then as they enter within these walls, they lose sight of everything especially what they said before we voted for them, they walk within these walls with only one purpose and that is the purpose of themselves and what they can do for themselves, including the fact that they have their hands out to whoever will pay them the highest for their vote within these walls. A true Politician does not start out this way but they learn over time of how to do this and get away with it, as most Politicians are Lawyers, a Lawyer learns over time how to take certain words and spin them, so they can best represent their clients, which they then learn how to manipulate the system the best they can, to reap themselves higher profits as the rest of us pays more dearly then just within our wallets.

Right now within the walls of Washington DC, there are two parties, one that is far on the left and so far within the grasp of denial, that they have lost all sight of true reality. Then there is another party that is on the right, but some are okay and get it, yet a lot simply have no spine, as there is no one calling out or helping these denial ridden people out of the grasp of the denial. ” The entire Democratic party is so far in denial, they have lost sight of all reality”. Simply because the President we have now did not fit their current model of what they think a President should be, you now have an entire party doing whatever they can to disrupt this seated President and totally forgetting on the ones who put them all in the offices they hold. When you are within the walls of denial the power is so great, you then become someone for who you truly are not, you live within this fake reality only because you can dictate better of what you are doing, without realizing that you are only furthering the pain of yourself and all those around you. So until the entire Democratic party wakes up out of the grasp of denial, they will never see reality as the rest of us do, for which they will keep on the road of fake reality and not seeing anything eye to eye with whoever looks them in the eyes.

This is a sad state of affairs for us all here in America, as because of the nonactions from a party so deep within the grasp of denial, they will never do anything to help us be better and stronger moving forward, for they will only try to get us to move backward as they are doing. Common Sense is another thing that while in denial you lose sight of as it becomes non-existent anywhere around you, common sense is never to common when you are within denial, only because you are so concerned with escaping the pain and the hurt, that you only think of that and will do anything to get it done, while those around you become like a figment of your imagination. This entire Democratic party is so far in denial and can only see one thing and that is to end the job of a seated President that we the people put into the office, only because he is not one of them for them to control. Even through all the crap and the denial within the walls of Washington DC, President Donald Trump is still doing the job he promised when he ran as Candidate Trump, not to mention the fact that this economy is booming with the lowest numbers of unemployment in all categories, but when you have one party within denial, no matter what this President does, they will never walk together with our President, let alone walk together with their peers, to actually do the job that they were voted in to do. The time is now to end the time of a lot of the long term Democrats within the grasp of denial, put some new bodies in there that will actually work for we the people and actually help our President to make and keep America great for all that walk this land.

 

” Denial is a strong power deep within us and so strong that it will turn us into someone for who we truly are not”

 

” There is so much corruption within the walls of Washington DC and we now have a President doing as he says when he was a candidate”

 

” We pay our leaders heavily to lead us to be better and stronger, not to fill us with more drama and corruption at every turn”

 

 

Even a Background has it’s Background

 

Just as this picture has a beautiful background full of tree’s and mountains, a  society with all its occupants has it’s background as well. There are so many backgrounds it can be very overwhelming to comprehend, not just we the people of a society have the background to live with, but everything around us has their backgrounds to live with as well, the background is part of our past whether we like it or not?

Now some backgrounds may come with much pain and hurt and some may be as smooth as silk? But the background is a background and they do not have to dictate how we walk our paths through this journey of life. Sometimes things happen in our past whether with our own actions or the actions of another towards us, then as we try to move forward, that makes our past become our background, whether we accept it or not? When we do not accept it and do not fix what we need to fix, now our futures become cluttered with self-doubt, lack of faith in ourselves with no hope, as we try to walk our paths. You can never erase any past no matter what, as the past is part of our background and will never go away. Now if you try to wipe out a past without addressing the background, then you will have many trying to move forward with a lot of unnecessary pain and hurt, not too mention trying to move forward not being true of who you are.

We all have a past that becomes our background with many issues and stuff we may not be proud of, but if we never address these issues and fix what we need to fix, now we have a society with many backgrounds that the pain and hurt becomes so great, we will do anything to rid ourselves from the pain, even if we then become someone for who we are not. There are a lot of good backgrounds out there, but yet there are many backgrounds that none of us can ever be proud of, with that said……… There is no background that can not be fixed, so we then can move forward better and stronger.

Throughout this society of backgrounds and pasts, we will never hold ourselves accountable whether the background was from our own actions or the actions of another, so instead, we then hide very deeply within a background that we are ashamed of, then let the shame of it all, take complete control of ourselves moving forward, when we are shamed into going into hiding, not only do we become fake on the outside, we also become fake on the inside, which then has us losing the feeling of our true emotions, to keep further pain and hurt from coming to us.

To some point, we all within this society have been shamed at one time or another, we all have at least one thing in our pasts that keep us hiding our background from each other, while we let the shame control of who we truly are. Shame is very like Denial and they both go hand and hand, they both will have you become part of a world that is not real, a world that you yourself try to make it as real as you can only to escape all the pain and hurt from the real reality. We become so lost along our paths that we never truly fix what we need, so we can truly move forward in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

What is truly in the background you ask? There are many different backgrounds within this society and we all have very different backgrounds from each other which makes us all unique to each other. Some backgrounds are not all good with much happiness, most backgrounds come with great pain and hurt, which then has us hiding in plain sight, just to try to escape all the pain and hurt, then through all the pain and hurt we then suffer from the shame and denial of these backgrounds, without trying to fix what we need to move forward in peace, so we then move forward with how we think is the best way, which is the burying of our true feelings and emotions, becoming someone we truly are not, as we then portray ourselves as okay, when in reality we are not.

The many facets of a background may come in many ways and within a society of many, now there are many backgrounds all around, but what we tend to overlook is, a background can be adjusted with the right fix, just that we have to want the fix, so we then can move forward along our paths, throughout this journey of life to be better and stronger with each step we take.

 

” A background is a past and you just can not erase a past to make the background better”

 

” Even Natures background isn’t all Roses, it to will come with some tragic events as well”

 

” We all have our backgrounds and we all have our pasts, they do not have to dictate how we walk through this journey of life”

 

 

The Obstacles can get overwhelming

 

No matter what path along this journey of life you take, the obstacles can be quite overwhelming but you have to focus on what is in front of you, take each stride one step at a time and when you make sure of your footing and step over with confidence, the path will become a lot easier, no matter of how it may look from afar.

Right now within this society and with all the chaos and ugliness, it is very easy to become troubled with the paths becoming daunting and seem very rough to travel, Then you add in the fact that our so-called leaders are so screwed up and can not work together for the better of us all, makes for a lot of us not seeing the light along the paths we walk. There are two Political parties with one not much better than the other, but we have one party that is so far to the left, that they have become the party of Denial while losing all sight of true reality.

The Democratic party is the party of Denial, they attack anything they can to make themselves seem more powerful than they really are. They attack a seated President simply because he is not their guy? They have lost sight of all Respect for anything and anybody around them, not too mention the fact that they have zero accountability for themselves let alone others around them if the President sneezed they would argue that he did it wrong, plus they wouldn’t even say ” God Bless You”, showing that they have truly lost sight of everything around them. But even through all this crap, President Trump keeps moving forward and not just making America great, but making all the people better and stronger as they move forward, leaving all the Democrats in the rearview mirror, as they keep trying to stop all the production that is getting done.

After the last big election, there are a few that have been voted into office, well……. All I can say is, they had their time and it is time to move on from this. I get the fact that they got voted in to replace a long-standing candidate that has done nothing but become dead weight, time to move on from this mistake, vote better and smarter, to give our great President the help he needs to further make this country better and stronger moving forward.

Throughout this world of political correctness, we have become weaker as a society, plus the fact that we have become too much of ” all about me”, through all this crap we have lost touch with the one thing that is truly important to us and that is the fact that we have the true feeling of the empathy we all have deep within our souls. Without true empathy which is the feeling within us to actually feel for those around us, so if we do not have that then we will never move forward with strength, as we will also never have any care of what happens to those around us. Now without empathy, the love within us becomes lost also as they both come together, so instead, we use the word love in the wrong context like, ” I love that car” or ” I love this book”? So now we care for more inanimate objects instead of each other as Jesus showed us when he came to us and walked his path of this journey with us.

Now I get the fact that we all need to work our jobs so we can afford to survive and pay our debt, but somewhere along this path we all have become more disconnected from each other, plus we all have let the clouds of our judgments becoming so thick, we can not see where we are going, which makes it a lot harder to see where all the obstacles are, as we now are tripping over our own feet and not truly walking our paths with confidence throughout this journey of life.

 

” The paths will not always be paved and yes we will have to get over the obstacles throughout this journey of life”

 

” There are two political parties that today are to busy arguing with each other instead of actually working making all our lives better and stronger”

 

” Political correctness has made us all weak as we fear too much of what we say anymore”

 

” Love and empathy go together as they are both deep within our hearts and souls”

 

 

 

 

The Patriot way……I am a Patriot

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” They were overjoyed at seeing the star, and on entering the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, they prostrated themselves and did him homage. Then they opened their treasures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh  ”

Mt 2: 10 11

 

To all the fans of the New England Patriots, the Eagle has landed. Now this season compared to all the other seasons of the last twenty years was a very interesting season, to say the least. The biggest question to this team going into what is going to be a very interesting offseason is, should Tom Brady retire or leave what has become his home for another team and not just another team, but a team that has much more uncertainty then this team of the 2019 Patriots. Tom’s legacy is the Patriots and to go to another team, could very much damage that legacy moving forward. Now some of your armchair Quarterbacks who think they know the game better than Tom or even Bill, are going to say whatever they may about Tom and this team, they will even argue that Tom has lost the zip on his throwing of the football, but from what I saw after yesterdays game, Tom can still zip that ball with authority and into tight spaces where only his receivers can get it. The Receivers are whats to be really looked at seriously, the only one he has and he trusts is Edleman and when the opponent knows this and takes Jules out of the game, you now have a Patriot offense that becomes very predictable and easy to zone in on. Now yes Tom has made many no-name Receivers into a household name within the NFL in the past, so one will argue that he can not and should retire? If you really look at the game within the game as Tom and Bill do every day, the biggest thing with turning a nobody Receiver into a star is, if you do not trust the one that is the Receiver to do his job then you really can not be as effective as you were in the past. Trust no matter what sport you are playing, in conjunction with having guys on the team that can and will do their job, is the biggest reason why the Patriots have six Championships and some franchises struggling to even make the playoffs.

Now there will be a lot of your drama queen sports media types and your Monday Quarterback types that will say the Dynasty is over? On the contrary, as long as you have Tom Brady and Bill Bellichek, the Dynasty continues just with a much different supporting cast around those two. Tom has made New England his home and Robert Kraft looks at Tom as his adopted son, I find it very hard to see Tom leaving this organization he has worked so hard to help build. It is kind of like we as Individuals being born into a family, we grow within this family and help build a strong bond and a foundation, so to just up and leave that really isn’t that easy. True there will be struggles as the good times never last, but when the bad times come it is very easy to just walk away, but if you want to be better and stronger moving forward, you have to fight through the bad times, fight through the struggles, which not only makes you better and stronger but also makes your team better and stronger moving forward. Then there is the issue of Josh McDaniels, this guy is a great Offensive Coordinator and my opinion of this is when you are great at something you keep doing what you are great at as you receive the Respect of your Peers, Josh left for the Broncos and became a Head Coach and that didn’t work out too good, I say he stays here with Tom and Bill to help build this team with some very different supporting cast members and who knows? Bill, as well as Tom, will retire someday, then you can take the respect you earned and excel as the next coach of the New England Patriots.

Now some of your armchair Quarterbacks will say that football is a game and very different then this journey through life, I say very different as the game of football as well as other team sports only help you grow stronger as you walk your path through this journey. When you are an individual on a team this will make the game very hard for you, just as when you are an Individual walking this journey with no one around you, makes for a very difficult journey with many struggles. Just look at the walls within Washington DC with our so-called leaders, you have two teams that are supposed to be working together for the good of the people in the Democrats and the Republicans, but instead, right now you have a bunch of Individuals who are doing nothing but argue with each other and not doing their jobs. So true you can say two very different ideologies, but in reality, they are very much the same and when you have common sense, you can clearly see just how similar they are. Just as you have a team coming together showing trust of each other and doing their jobs to win a Championship and when you have a Government coming together through trust and unity, now you can have a society coming together in unity instead of being divided with much ugliness and hatred at every turn. Team sports and the journey of life are so similar, but if you never look deeply at what you see, then maybe you should look in the mirror as maybe you have become part of the problem, instead of being part of the solution for each one of us to become better and stronger, as we all walk a path through this journey of life.

 

” The Patriot way maybe for a team in the NFL, but to be a Patriot of a country you have to do it similar as all the other Patriots by making it the countries way”

 

” I know we all have our own opinions but we also all have our own Butt holes as well”

 

” Armchair Quarterbacks and the sports media all have one thing in common,  they both like to create their own drama and bring it to all of us, making them all Drama Queens”

 

 

A New Year and a Decade in one night

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Tonight being New Year’s Eve of 2019, at midnight then starts the year 2020. now I get that changing to a new decade comes every ten years, but every year on new years eve it is what you call ” Amature night”, simple meaning why is? People will go out just to get drunk with no good reason other than to get drunk. Now some want to go to a big city like New York and watch the ball drop at midnight, but coming from someone who was at First night in Boston one time, that will be the only time as once the clock struck midnight, then the all the booze bottles came out and people just well……… like there brains went to sleep as their actions were of chaos and stupidity.

Within this society of today, it is the actions of some people that totally ruin the actions of the rest of us, those few show zero responsibility toward themselves as well as those around them, I get we all want to party and have a good time, but it never will be a good time if we never show responsibility towards each other moving forward. I get the fact that for some they want the old year to go away because of the misfortune it has brought, but if you really didn’t learn from the misfortune and fixed what needed to be fixed, then the new year will only be full of the old misfortunes. The bottom line is that if we try to escape from our misfortunes by ringing in a new year or even a decade, then down the road of the new year we will all become disappointed, simply because we never learned and fixed from what happened in the past, to make our New Year be as prosperous as it could have been.

Happy New Year to all as we not only celebrate a new year, we also celebrate a new Decade as well. Please take the time to celebrate responsibly, not just for yourself but for all those around you as well. Near Year’s should be a joyous occasion and not one that brings us further pain and harm, maybe that’s why most will make a resolution than in a short time forget of that resolution? When truly making a resolution first we should make it with sincerity, make it from the heart so we then can move forward into the new year with true happiness, while we then become truly better and stronger moving forward, as we walk our paths of this journey, with each and every year that we are here to celebrate.

Happy New Year to all as we celebrate responsibly and with our true actions, not only to bring joy to ourselves but also let us bring joy to each other, let us truly end all this hatred and ugliness that is around us now, so we then can enter into each year with true happiness, as we ourselves learn from our pasts, fix all that we need to fix, so when we all are together watching a ball drop from the sky and as it reaches the bottom at the stroke of midnight, then we all can truly ring in a joyous new year, full of prosperity, not just for ourselves, but for all those around us and then we all can walk our paths, through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” It is a new year with a new decade, so as we are responsible it can truly be a joyous occasion”

 

” Each new year will never be truly new if we keep bringing in our old baggage from the previous years”

 

” With each new year will bring new change, so let’s accept and welcome the change to move forward better and stronger”

 

 

Family Time

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” Rise take the child and his mother and go to the land of Israel, for those who sought the child’s life are dead”

Mt 2:20

 

We all have family here on Earth true, but what is part of an even bigger picture is, we are all part of a Spiritual family that also helps shape us into the person we truly are. Jesus Christ came to us from God our Father and Mary our mother, Jesus walked his path of this journey with us to show us that, when we walk it correctly and when we walked it truly feeling the love within our hearts, then nothing will get in the way of we ourselves sharing that love with each other, with the hate we see today not even standing a chance against the true love of Jesus Christ and the true love within all our hearts and souls.

Family time is the precious time we spend with our families, to bond, to build that strong foundation, so we all can move forward with confidence no matter what is thrown at us within this broken society. Just as this table is empty in this picture, so is this precious family time that helped build who we truly are, as a kid growing up, I remember every Sunday being the ” family time”, gathering around the table and eating dinner together, truly chatting with each other, not just to help each other along our paths, but forming a strong bond and a strong foundation, one that can never be broken and even if it was to be cracked, we worked together to mend that crack and moved forward better and stronger. Within this broken society of today, the family time is stripped from us all, we let the fast pace dictate not just our lives, but of who we are as now we have become like a Robot instead of being an actual person, who walks a path through this journey of life.

Now I get the fact that even within a family we go through some tough times for many different reasons, we become drawn apart from each other, we fight and argue with each other, we also may not see eye to eye with each other and have our disagreements, but at the end of the day we are still drawn toward each other, as the magnet within us keeps pulling us together, this is the power of the Holy Spirit, this is the love of Jesus Christ deep within all our hearts and souls, so no matter of all the hatred and ugliness outside of the family, it will never last within the family as it is the bond and the foundation of family, that truly keeps us all strong as we walk this journey, regardless whether or not we want to recognize or accept what family is, truly what family is, a bond and a foundation built with hard work and love of each other, so we then can grow within a society and show the same love with a much broader and wider group, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” At least one day a week our families would gather around the table to further strengthen our bond and the foundation of our true family”

 

” When we do not take the time for our family time and gather around the table, eventually over time the bond and the foundation becomes cracked with no fix in-sight”

 

” Just as we have our family here on Earth, we are also part of an even bigger family within the spiritual world, which helps us grow and share our true love with each other”

 

” At least one day a week dinner time would be a lot more than just eating food, it would be a bonding time to help strengthen our family foundation further”

 

 

Small Town America

See the source image

The beauty of small-town America lives in many areas within this great country, now there are many small towns through the years that have not lived on for a variety of reasons and that is sad because small-town America was once the fabric that made this country truly great. A lot of these small towns have become what we know today as a Ghost town, these Ghost towns are deep in history, but once again we forget these places simply because we have become too lazy to learn the history instead, we want to think we are the trailblazer only because we are so engulfed in the idea of being in the limelight, that we forget that America had a past and a great past at that.

I lived in the great state of Colorado for some time, plenty long enough that I explored many areas within this state, whether on the beaten path or off the beaten path, as I had a four-wheel-drive truck, that would get me into a lot of places that a normal vehicle could not go. I drove up across mosquito pass from Breckenridge to Leadville, as high as 13,500 feet, this pass was also the old pony express route that would deliver the mail through all kinds of weather and what took me eight to ten hours, depending on me stopping at the old-time Ghost towns to view, would of taken the pony express two to four weeks to travel depending on the weather. Then there was another Ghost town just outside of Minturn, Colorado that was built literally on the side of a mountain, but people had to leave their homes as the water supply had lead in it, that forced them out. There were many small towns similar all through the state of Colorado it makes for a great state to visit and learn of the true history of America. There is a small town about forty minutes west of Denver called Georgetown, this was once a very vibrant silver mining town, that when times change and the silver wasn’t needed as much, went through some difficult times, a lot had left the town, but the ones who stayed had to think outside the box, as to keep this beautiful small town from turning into yet another Ghost town.

There are many small towns throughout this country of America, some still vibrant today as they had to reinvent themselves to stay afloat, while many others fell to become Ghost towns that are just buildings with no vibrancy or movement from Mankind. Within this society today we take so much for granted and the biggest thing is, we don’t take the time to learn from these pasts, so we then can move forward better and stronger. There is so much we can learn from these small towns, but yet today we are so arrogant that we think we are better than anything from our past? Within these small towns, you had people like you and me today, there are a few who came out of the small towns and made their marks within this country, now some had big impacts and are in the history books, some just for a short time which we do not really look at, then there are the ones who left the small towns to never again looked back? They have forgotten of their roots and have moved forward with only themselves on their mind, we of this society in a lot of ways are doing this now, as when we work our way up within the companies we work, we tend to forget of what it took to get to where we are today. There is a lot more to this journey through life then what is around us at the present time, the problem then lies with each of us not taking the time to explore and see some of what America was, instead we want to think that we are the smart ones and the trailblazers of this country, but if it wasn’t for America’s past and the small towns that built the foundation of this country, then truly where would we all be today?

Everything around you started somewhere, whether a small town or even that technology device in your hand, if you never look back in the past and learn from it, then moving forward will be either difficult or just the fact of, we become wanderers instead of truly walking our paths through this journey of life. For me the best way I have learned of these small towns, was the time spent in the great state of Colorado, only because when I wasn’t working I was exploring and not just what was on the beaten path, I ventured off the beaten path and came across some of America’s smallest towns that are now forgotten Ghost towns, that now is a time that most of us have forgotten with no desire to ever learn from.

 

” The small towns of America which some have reinvented themselves while others have become a forgotten Ghost town”

 

” A true trailblazer of any country will explore all of that country, learn all they can to help the country become truly great in the world today”

 

” The Ghost towns of yesteryear have become forgotten from this society, but at one time it was vibrant and what helped build the foundation of this great country”

 

 

The Resolution game………

Every year we play the same game over and over, we make our Resolutions only to break them soon after the New Year starts. Now I get the concept of these Resolutions I just do not get the why we torture ourselves with making ones that we never keep? A Resolution should be looked at differently, they should be looked at like a goal we set when we enter into the working world of this society, we all want to achieve these goals so we can make more money in our careers, well why not achieve certain goals in our personal lives as well, so we than can feel even better of ourselves as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

Just like this root of a tree and the fact of how long it sat underwater and now out of water drying in the sun, this is very unique looking compared to others you may see, well we are just like these roots, in the way of our uniqueness toward one another, plus they also have a strong root system that helps them grow within mother nature, just as we as well have strong roots that shape us into who we are. The roots of anything are the foundation of the building blocks within anything that grows into any life form, true these roots can be broken from time to time, but when we learn from the error of our ways and fix what is to be fixed, then we can move forward better and stronger within this journey of life.

We of this society today have lost sight of a lot of things and one of those things is how we look at a resolution each year, we tend to make these resolutions thinking only of ourselves and to make our selves better for the next year. How about making a resolution that will benefit all within this society today, so we as a whole can improve on, instead of adding to this already broken society. I have a good idea for a resolution this coming New Year, just maybe we can all get on board with truly making not just America great, but the entire World great for us all to walk our paths of this journey in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

New Resolution:

” I will look at myself as equal but unique to those around me, while I truly feel the love of Jesus within my heart and share that love with all those around me, while I show true empathy to all those around me as well”

 

This journey through life is not really that difficult, it is each of us that makes it seem difficult with the actions we take, we have lost sight of what truly Christmas is all about, we think Christmas comes from our pockets? The reality of Christmas is all about the birthday of Jesus Christ, just as we have a birthday so does he as well and when we truly see Christmas as it should be, then maybe we all can share the love within our hearts with each other, as Jesus showed us when he walked his journey here with us. Each year we fight each other in the stores so we can buy what we think is the perfect gift? This is not what Christmas is about, instead, we should be home feeling that warmth within our hearts, so we then can share that warmth with each other, cause when we do this then all the hatred around us will disappear from all our paths as we walk this journey of life.

 

” A resolution we make then later we break only to become more bitter, why not change the outlook of a resolution”

 

” The roots of anything is the foundation to which to build upon, to become better and stronger moving forward”

 

” Christmas does not come out of our pockets, it is the birthday of Jesus Christ and showing his love for each of us, with each other no matter of who you are”
