The Fire in the sky………..

What a beautiful sunset to cap of a beautiful day within nature. The sky is burning in the flames of the sun, just as the fire burns within each of us, we all have that flame within us, to achieve all we want to achieve, as we get older that flame seems to die out a bit, but does it really die out? It only seems like it does, because we loose our focus, we lose the drive to keep the flames burning within, we then get so caught up in all the crap around us, we then forget to stoke our own fire, we look at all around us in a different way, the focus we once had becomes clouded as we do not see things as we once did. Life is not all as soft as a Rose pedal, or the path we walk is not always paved, we always have to work hard for what we want and there are no exceptions, even the filthy rich have to work hard at keeping their wealth, or their wealth will disappear as quick as it came.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we have to work every day to make the path as smooth as we can, the one thing we can not do is, count on another to help in the up keep of the path, unlike some might think like one of those Socialists types, you can’t take from one to help another along, especially the fact that those you may be taking from, are out there working hard to keep their paths clear, so why should some not have to work at clearing their path? Why should some take something that they really didn’t work for? There is this thing called pride and with pride, it makes you have a good feeling within, it helps you with self confidence to achieve all you want to achieve, without the pride and without the confidence, then the fire within you really does not burn as it should, as a matter of fact, that fire within becomes extinguished, making you cold inside with no true feelings moving forward.

Camping within Mother Nature is a lot more than just setting up a tent, setting up a piece of land just for peace and quiet, the days of camping is to unwind from the daily grind, explore and see things for which you normally would not see, not just see a sunset as beautiful as this, but also a sunrise just as much, there is a lot more to this journey through life, than the usual daily grind we all live, true we can get so caught up in the daily grind, that we then forget to stoke our fire within, which we then forget to get out and explore to see things we never see normally, sometimes we make a choice to stay within the world we are in, then that becomes our choice and we really can not blame another for that choice we have made, nor can we expect another to give up their choice, just because we do not like the choice we have made.

Sometimes life will bring us discomfort, it will bring us things that gives us much pain and hurt, through that pain and hurt is also when we become so clouded within, that the fire within us, will become extinguished like the rain fall over the campfire, when we are within the clouds it becomes very hard to see anything, even the path for which we are walking and instead of working at cleaning up the path, we just wander trying to hide our pain and hurt, so we can look as normal as we can. Sometimes the discomfort is part of what we are doing and sometimes, the discomfort comes from others who will bring it to us, simply because they try to seem more powerful to those around them? Either way it is up to us to clear the clouds of pain and hurt, so we than can feel good of ourselves, feel total confidence in ourselves, so we to can achieve all we want to achieve.

A trip within Mother Nature to explore and see things we normally would not see, is better than any therapy, it will help us unwind, it will help us clear the clouds from our judgments, so we than can see all the beauty around us, as we look out into the horizon and with a clear mind, we than can see that the horizon is looking back at us, we also notice that all our other senses are waking up to what is around us, we find that yes we do have these things of feelings within us, just that they were buried so deep within, that like the fire within, they were lost within the clouds that engulfed us. This journey through life is not about us waiting for another to give us everything, it’s not about just being consumed within the daily grind, there is so much more to this journey, we just have to have the confidence in ourselves to get out there and explore all that it has to offer and with this confidence, we will find that we have these feelings within us, that need to be stoked like the fire within, so as we walk our paths through this journey, we can do so in peace and happiness always.

” As the fire is within the sky, so to is there a fire within each of us as well to fuel ourselves to achieve all we want to achieve”

” As the sunset comes to put the sky to sleep for the night, so does the sunrise come to wake the sky up for the coming day”

” Socialism never works, just look at the current country of Venezuela”

” Discomfort will bring us pain and hurt, but to bring us comfort we all need to work hard and the pain and hurt will get better moving forward”

Look out into the horizon and the horizon will look deeply into you



A beautiful day out on the water, a few clouds within the blue sky, the water is calm making the canoe glide through the water with each stroke of the paddle, as you look out ahead to see what’s in front of you in the water, look deeper into the horizon, to see where the water touches the sky. Does the water really touch the sky? when you look deeply into what you see, then you will have the answer to this question of reality.

As we walk through yet another journey of Lent and well into this journey, let us look deeply into the scripture for this 4th Sunday of Lent. Sometimes bad things happen even within the good, which makes it even more important for us to look deeply into ourselves, so we can see why these happen, as we move forward through this journey. Jesus came upon a man who was born being blind, Jesus then padded his eyes with clay and told the man to wash and you will see, The man was free of sin, but had the bad thing of blindness happen to him from birth, it was no fault of his or his parents, so he went to wash and now can see everything around him.

The problem within this broken society is, we don’t look deep enough at what we see, we glance at an appearance, then think we know everything of what we are seeing? You never truly know of anything, unless you actually look deeply at what you are looking at, when you glance at someone that may have an outward appearance of not as you are, you never know of what they may have gone through, unless you look deeply at what you see without glancing at an appearance, only then will you truly see what you are looking at, plus you will also be totally in touch with your own true feelings of, compassion and empathy, when we all do this is when all the hatred and ugliness that surrounds us now, totally disappears from all our paths, as we walk peacefully through this journey of life.

Jesus looked deeply into the eyes of the blind man, saw totally of who he truly was, then as he padded the clay on his eyes and told him to go wash for he will see, that is what the blind man did and now he see’s everything around for the first time on his journey. We in this society get so caught up in all the hatred and ugliness, we don’t let ourselves see anything for what we do not want to see, we then bury our true feelings deep within, leaving us with no empathy or compassion for each other, which now we move forward hurting one another with our actions, instead of treating each other with respect, so we can move forward in peace and happiness always, throughout this journey of life we walk.

When we hide our true selves from one another, is simply because we don’t look deeply into what we see, then as we just glance over what we see, we then lose deep within, our true feelings, especially the feelings of compassion and empathy, which is what keeps the love of Jesus within us, to share with each other, so the hatred and the ugliness won’t take control or over whelm us, as we move forward on our paths of this journey through life.

” The horizon is the abyss of our lives, for us to look deeply into it, as it looks deeply within us”

” As we are now deep within this journey of lent, let us look deeply into what we see and truly see and feel the love of Jesus within us”

” Go into the bathroom and what do you really see in the mirror? Yes it is the reflection of ones self, looking deeply back at you as well”

When the view becomes obstructed

Sometimes our view of whatever we are looking at becomes obstructed, we can’t see clearly enough to pass a correct judgment, so we then make up any judgment that we think will be okay and for us, to move forward in a way we think we are better for it. This journey through life has many obstructions and at times we get frustrated which then has us not thinking through our actions, when we do this we just don’t hurt ourselves, we hurt all those around us as well, when all we simply have to do is, think and see through anything, before we actually take the action, so we all can be spared any real pain and hurt,

Most of the time we don’t want to see clearly as to spare us any pain and hurt, but this journey through life comes in what is known as a life cycle and just like any cycle, everything revolves in a circle, while yes it may be away from us, but eventually like all circles, it will come around once again. This is why we all need to see through and see clearly everything, making our future actions more informed, saving us from any pain and hurt that we really need not feel.

This journey through life may have a lot of elements to it, but when managed properly, these elements will help us walk peacefully along our paths of this journey. Sometimes these life events will come to us and try to control and disrupt our lives, this makes it very easy to not look clearly at what we are looking at, just so we can try to control any pain and hurt from effecting us so, we then hide deeply within ourselves as if we become invisible to all that is around us, this only compounds the pain and hurt further, which when the pain becomes to much, will then come to the surface like an explosion that rocks us to the point we can not handle. Anything in life when managed properly can be handled easily, just that we have to clear the weeds from our sight, to see more clearly all that is around us, then we can move forward better and stronger throughout this journey of life.

Look deeply into what you see, let your true feelings keep you in tune to all that is around you, so when the different cycles of life come a knocking, you will be ready, willing and able to deal with them properly, as you stay in control, without them controlling you. When we see clearly of all that is around you, we than can act properly , which will help us see through our actions, before we take the action, saving us all from the pain, the hurt and the sorrow, as we then walk our paths peacefully throughout this journey of life. With the pain and hurt we become to rash with our decisions and our actions, we react without thinking of the reactions, which then has us becoming way too negative and forces us come up with any solution, instead of the proper solution. Jesus came to us and showed us just how to walk our paths of this journey, so we all than can find that true path of righteousness, as we all live in the peace and happiness we all so deserve, without any of the ugliness we see around us today.

” Look deeply into what you see, to think of the reaction before you take the action”

” We all hurt from much pain and a lot of the pain can be avoided if we only saw more clearly before we react to what we think we saw”

” The journey of life has many elements, but when managed properly the elements never become to big too handle”

” All circles are connected with links, with wear and tear links become weak and break, why we need to see clearly to replace all broken links to be better and stronger”

As Jesus walked this journey, so do we

” How can you say to your brother, Brother let me remove that splinter in your eye, when you do not even notice the wooden beam in your own eye?

*** LK 6:42a***

This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and as we enter into the forty day journey of Lent, let us remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us, showing just how deeply he loved us, while he to walked this journey, showing us all that yes, we to can share our love within, with each other.

Basically this quote talks of, before we can reach out to help another, we first need to help ourselves and over come all that we may be going through and struggling through. If you want to pull that splinter out of your brothers eye, then first clear the obstruction from your own, so you than can see clearly of what you are doing and as you see clearly, then the clouds of your judgments, will then be gone as the love within you, will then not only comfort you, but comfort your brother, as you remove the splinter, so he to can see clearly along this journey of life.

We all have our issues as we walk our paths of this journey, but yet we always see the faults of others and never see any faults of our own, we are always quick to point the finger towards others, but never point the finger at ourselves and accept any blame for whatever we do, others will surely pick up on our faults before we even recognize them ourselves. We are all guilty of this behavior, but we will never admit to any faults we may have.

A lot of times these faults will bring us great shame, shame that brings us great pain and when we hurt deeply inside, we then bury these faults deep within, so we than can try to move forward like there is nothing holding us back. So as we do this, we than never look at our own faults, instead we point out the faults of others, which then will stop us from truly getting to know one another, only forcing us to look at each other superficially, without truly looking deeply at what we see. There is always more than what we may see initially, just that we don’t truly want to see, cause then it will make us look deeper into ourselves.

Jesus as he walked this journey with us, showed us all that when we stay true to ourselves, truly feel our feelings within and feel the warmth of his love within us, then we to can not only love ourselves, but love all those around us, without any evil or unwanted thoughts. Nobody ever wants to show any fault, as this will bring out weakness and within a broken society as we are currently in, then any weakness will bring us more shame and pain, which we then will be open to becoming a victim of any kind, furthering the pain for which we already have.

Weakness brings pain and in a society of fakness, weakness makes you vulnerable over those who pretend to be strong, as they then seem to be more powerful than they really are. We never want to admit to our faults, so we than can bury them and seem strong to those around us, while we then point the finger of fault on those around us. We are all guilty of pointing the finger of blame, which does nothing but deflect any blame from ourselves, so we then never fix what we need to fix, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

So as we walk yet another Lenten journey, let us do so as Jesus did these next forty days, let us sacrifice as Jesus did for us, as we truly get back in touch with our true feelings, unbury those faults as we work to fix what we need to fix, then we can truly move forward better and stronger and treat each other with respect, to keep our dignity, showing our true love for each other, then we can walk confidently on our paths, through this journey of life.

” Lets walk this journey of lent and sacrifice as Jesus did for us, to be better and stronger moving forward”

” Faults can only be fixed when we stay true to who we are, without burying them like they are nothing but dirty laundry”

” The journey of lent is a forty day journey, to get back to who we truly are, to become better and stronger moving forward”

” Our issues do not have to define us on our paths, they should help us to be better and stronger moving forward”

Hate belongs no where within this journey we all walk

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Quality of life along this journey

” Since from you shall come a Ruler, who is to Shepard my people Israel”.

Mt 2;6b

We all get so wrapped up in our Professional lives, that we forget to simply take some ” ME” time as we walk our paths through this journey of life. When we grow up and become a productive member in this Society, we become all about our jobs, we become about making money so we can survive in this society to the point, we then become lost from all the true beauty all around us. Sometimes we don’t realize of what we are doing til it is too late, then when we finally wake up to our own realities, we get depressed of the fact that so much has passed us by and we haven’t even taken the time to enjoy any of it.

Now I totally get the fact that we need to work and build up our nest eggs, but what good is that nest egg, if we don’t take the ” ME” time to enjoy it? I get the fact that we find a Company to work in and are happy where we are, so we then work as much and often as we can, to earn all that we can, all while putting aside that “ME” time for later, but sometimes that later comes too us too late, then we look back at what we missed, of which we become depressed when we look back. There are also these life events that come to us with some being, small and mild while others taking control of us. We then bury our selves in our work of our jobs, to try to move forward without feeling the pain from these events? We then become lost within ourselves without taking any kind of “ME” time at all.

We all need this all important ” ME” time, from time to time. This is how we recharge ourselves, this is how we get out and explore all the true beauty around us, while we let this beauty heal us from our troubles, heal us from the stress of our work, so we than can move forward better and stronger throughout this journey of life. Sometimes this ” ME” time simply consists of, taking to Mother Nature with some camping and hiking, even if it is just you and Mother Nature, just getting out there and healing yourself from the daily grind. Sometimes it is finding a hobby like The sport of Bowling, something you grow to love and excel in, bowling in a league or two, then showing what you can do in a tournament on the weekends. When these activities are not there and we are lost within the clouds of our judgments, from the daily grind of our jobs, we then feel incomplete as a person, while all else passes us by.

I get the fact that we need some money to enjoy the ” ME” times, yes it is okay too build up the nest eggs, but it is also important to learn to balance your time between the work and the ” ME” time, without getting lost within the corporate world. The corporate world is fine, but sometimes we let it dictate where we are going, instead of us dictating where we want to go. Within this society we walk today and the way the corporate world changes daily, we then fear that the change will leave us on the outside looking in, which we then do whatever within our jobs, to what we think as becoming valuable to the company we work, but in reality these companies really, could care less of who we are, especially if we are not producing for them, this is when we get lost within and totally forget that all important “ME” time.

We all need to recharge and clear the cob webs from our minds from time to time, find an activity that helps us do just that, so we can focus on ourselves, as we heal ourselves from the daily grind, heal ourselves from the pains that come to hurt us throughout this journey, when we don’t take the time to recharge, then we lose focus on where we are going and more importantly, where we want to go moving forward. This journey through life really isn’t that hard when we do it correctly, but that is the problem……….. we get lost within the clouds of our judgments so much that, we let everything else dictate where we are going, instead of we ourselves dictating where we want to go.

” Good quality of life is we ourselves taking the proper ” ME” time to recharge and refocus”

” The corporate world will consume us if we let it, we just have to find the right balance between “ME” time and work time”

” A nest egg is good for the latter of the journey, as long as we don’t let the latter pass us by without enjoying it”

” We all need to recharge and clear our heads from time to time, so we can move forward better and stronger”

The Grass may not be greener elsewhere

Migrants, part of a caravan of thousands from Central America trying to reach the United States, walk towards the U.S. Consulate during a demonstration in Tijuana, Mexico, December 11, 2018.
” Immigration done the correct way can be a beautiful thing, but to force yourself upon others, only breeds ugliness and hatred ‘.                                                                                 *** BowlingChef ***                  I totally get the fact that some of the legit Immigrants are looking for a place better than their current residence, as some of the smaller countries either just can’t handle taking care of their people, or just quite simply…….. Are taking complete advantage of them, to the point that they are just a pawn on the chess board of their country. Now with that said, we all here on this planet called Earth, walk our paths through this journey of life. With this journey comes struggles and their is no one exempt from these struggles, just that we as an Individual, have to figure out for ourselves  how to over come the struggles, so we can move forward better and stronger and to do this, we simply can not force ourselves on others and then expect them to foot the bill of our struggles.                   When we work hard and really achieve good things in our lives, it is not about these things we have, as it is all about the work and just how good we feel deep inside ourselves, when we achieve all that we have. That special feeling deep within, when we achieve success, really means a lot more to us, the problem is that, we within this Society have taken on this me against the World attitude and have lost all the feelings that are deep within ourselves.                     We all start out and end this journey the same way, even though some may think they are more special than another? The only thing that differs along this journey is the path we each take, sometimes we get led down a path and sometimes we blaze our own path, either way we are suppose to make the path we choose, as simple as we can and as beautiful as we can, so we can make this journey enjoyable and full of peace and happiness. Now the peace and the happiness may be our goal, but there is this thing called ” Life Events” that will if we let them, control totally of who we truly are. These life events may come to us from our actions as we walk our paths, but for the most part, these events come to us from those around us. The facts are the facts and there are some that, will go out of their way to control all those around them, just so they can seem to all as the most powerful of us all.                       Not everybody can achieve top positions within the company that they work, but we all can achieve greatness throughout this journey of life. just by how we walk our paths with our actions, walk our paths with much respect, love and dignity of each other, as we honor each other always. Life is funny in the way that, we get back for what we put into it, like if we don’t put in anything, then we get back nothing, leaving us to struggle, when we try to be very controlling of all that is around us, then all we get is, never to be satisfied of anything, with zero substance of anything in our lives, we are never truly satisfied with our non actions, as this breeds great inactivity, even if we think our actions are second to none, with no care for those around us.                        Now a lot of these Immigrants that are trying to come to America just might be legit, but a good majority just want to come here to sponge off of us Americans, to bring great chaos, hatred and ugliness and do not care of who they hurt with real pain? There are some of these Refugee’s that, just want to come here to disrupt, they do not want to be better moving forward and you have them becoming lazy, while they do nothing but bring the hurt of real pain, to all those around them.  ” The green grass of the pasture, just might be green where you are, but not as green where you want to be”  ” This journey of life may be all the same to us all, it is our paths that differ with none being greater than the other”  ”  ” There is a big difference between “ILLEGAL” Immigration and Immigration done the correct way” 

In Death comes an ending to this journey of life……..

” In Death may sound really permanent, but how do we really know, until the day the journey ends”                What a beautiful Funeral for A great man in George HW Bush, he may of been our President for only one term, but he truly made that term count, with his actions throughout that entire term. A man from the ” Greatest Generation”, a generation that we of today owe a huge debt of gratitude to, simply because, they fought the good fight, so we today wouldn’t have to, plus………….. They fought the good fight, so we of today can be free to do all we do, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.                   What President Bush brought more of to the walls of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue was, Faith. The Faith in God our father, as well as Jesus Christ his son and our brother. He and his wife Barbara together brought love, respect, dignity, honor, class and the fact of them being good Human beings that, never became to big and always cared deeply for all those around them. President George HW Bush was as solid as they come, he knew just how to be stern, but yet do it in a way that, he never came across as stern, he knew just of how to motivate those around him and never once has anybody ever had an ounce of madness toward him. Now irregardless of which side of the aisle you were from him, he didn’t care, as he had a great gift that brought people to the table in comprimize, so we all can be better and stronger moving forward.                        Death is that something that scares us all deeply, as we will always have a fear for the unknown. Death is that thing we think of as dark, but is it really dark? Or is it really full of the brightest light, just we as Humans making it dark with our fear. We look at Death as being permanent, but just how permanent is it really? As with the Faith in God our father, then truly there is a Heaven, so we than can walk in the valley of heaven in the peace and happiness, that we miss so dearly here on Earth, throughout this journey of life. Our souls rise to Heaven, with our bodies staying put within the coffin, this is where the eternal life comes, that Jesus talks to us about, when he came and walked this journey here with us.                       With the beautiful funeral of our beloved President Bush come to a close, may the beauty never leave us moving forward, as our beloved President being finally at peace, may his family finally be at peace also, while they grieve properly, not just of the father they just lost, but for their mother, just a few short months ago also. Death will eventually come to us all, which makes it even that much more important, to walk this journey correctly, so we have no regrets and no sins, from asking for God to forgive us, as we forgive ourselves from all wrongs.  ” Is death really an ending, or do we simply fear it so, that it seems so cold and dark”  ” President Bush 41 was a great man for us all to follow and have him become a role model to us all” 

Welcome Home

” Thanksgiving traditions are very different as we are so unique to each other, each tradition is so very special to us all” 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                         *** BowlingChef*** 

           The very first Thanksgiving dinner never included turkey, as it had Water fowl like duck and geese, venison, corn etc…. These are the products that the Native American Indian and the Pilgrims came together and bartered with, as they sat down together and had a grand feast with each other. The turkey didn’t come til much later, like 1816 during the Abe Lincoln Presidency, when he requested turkey to be served for Thanksgiving dinner. This later became a tradition throughout all America for many American families. We all have our traditions, there is no wrong traditions, the only wrong thing is not having a tradition to look look forward of,  or forcing on one another a tradition that may not be wanted by some. A tradition is something special for which we hold dear, something we look forward to, something that helps us move forward to be better and stronger moving forward. 

              Thanksgiving has always been as long as I remember, the special time of year for so many to come home, from where ever their path may have taken them. To come back home to their families renewing the strong family bond and visiting old friends from their growing up days. That night before Thanksgiving has always been the best night all year, for all the local watering holes, as throughout all the towns across America, their local watering holes are packed with old friends, coming home and rekindling their lives together, while catching up on their lives here in the present.

                Thanksgiving has always been that time of year for us all to reflect and be thankful for not just all we have, but for all those who surround us and keep us moving forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. Even if you think or maybe you don’t realize? We all have something or someone to be thankful of. Being thankful and saying thank you are two different things,when you say thank you when someone does you a favor or service is just a way to be polite, being thankful of something or someone, gives you a warm feeling of love deep within your heart and means a whole lot more not just to you, but to all those around you, not too mention, when we are all thankful and it spreads throughout all of this journey, then all our paths become more peaceful, full of happiness always. 

                 There are all different modes of transportation used by each of us to come home, that is the second best part of the journey coming home, as nothing will ever beat the ” Welcome Home” part of the journey. Whether taking a road trip, flying, or taking the train, it’s exciting for this part of the journey, then as you reach your destination, then the excitement is followed by beautiful emotion, as you rekindle the bond of what family is all about. True we all have to go out and live our lives and a lot of times it’s away from those we hold dear, but the true meaning of Thanksgiving, will have us all taking the journey home, to rekindle the special times of our pasts, so we than can move forward better and stronger always, throughout this journey of life.

                   The biggest thing for all of to never lose sight of is, some never take the journey back home, especially those within our military, these men and woman put themselves in harms way everyday, so you and I can take the journey home to rekindle our family bonds and the bonds of friendships past. So let’s never forget these brave souls as we say grace, giving great thanks to these Individuals before we feast on this Thanksgiving day, we all have so much to be thankful for throughout our journey through life, so on this day of Thanksgiving, as we rekindle with each other, let’s also give a big thank you to all those who have served, who are serving, showing the ones that will serve, that their time will never go unnoticed and we will always be thankful, throughout this entire journey through life.

” Thank you Jesus Christ for all you have done, so each of us can walk this journey in peace and happiness always”

” Thank you to all the men and woman of our military, so I can be free to do all I do throughout this journey”

” All traditions are different, it is not wrong to have a different tradition than another” 

” A tradition is something we hold dear, it various from person to person” 

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”
