” Here we spend our time, and what we see”

” What we think about matter”

Psalm 119:37

Corinthians 10:5

It is the many smaller journeys, within this bigger journey called Life, that make us up to be who we are? The Perspectives, the visions, the way we take actions from what we see, to inmplement them in our own way, this not only forms who we become, but what we tend to forget is, it forms many others around us, whether in a negative way, or a positive way.

We are all within this broken society today simply because, we in one way shape or form, have failed each other with our own actions. We have lost sight of one of the biggest conmandments that Moses, brought forth to each of us, from our Father, and the creator of all the beauty around us, ” Love Thy Neighbor”. We do not even know our neighbors anymore, let alone a simple hello in passing, we all move around like we are the creator’s? Like we own everything around us, and are entitled to everything around us? Yes God created all this for us to enjoy, but to enjoy with each other in harmony, without trying to attack and kill each other. Until the day comes that we all get back to who we truly are, we may never get back to a good and healthy society, it all starts with the actions of each one of us, as we move forward within our own journeys, of this journey thru life.

This journey through life has much beauty for us all to see, but when we keep the current actions we are taking, all this beauty will turn to ugliness all around us. Now I get the fact that each society throughout this journey will grow from one to another, but when they do grow and when they are taught the wrong things, from the wrong actions, this is where we have gone so wrong. Plus the fact that we of this society are so far removed from the time when, Jesus Christ came to us and walked this journey with us, has led us away from the house of God, and so far away that, there are some who just do not believe, or have formed their own Idealologies about the son of man. Well!!! Unlike the so-called media of today, I have a real news-flash for you, without the belief in Jesus Christ, you can not have any faith, which then leads to no hope.

Faith in anything is key to us walking our paths confidently, to be better and stronger. With faith in our selves, we then can keep moving forward, without stepping backwards into the unknown, and with that faith, we than can have great hope, that helps us to not just be who we are, but succeed in everything we set out to do, as we walk our paths of this journey. Now some in this society who have no faith in anything, will try to bring their inabilities to the rest of us? Then say that, you need to do as I say, because it is the only way? Some and because of their inabilities, will try to wreak all the power over us, so they can seem ( only to themselves), as the most powerful over all others. Then you have the ones that, just simply go with the flow, as to not bring any unwanted pain and hurt, let alone anything that takes away their comfort. People today fear so much of all ugliness and hatred out there, that they forget how to actually take a stand to it, how to look the fear in the eyes, so they can end that fear around them, so they keep to the status Quo, cause they fear more of the actions that may come to them.

We need to change our actions we take toward each other, we attack each other at every turn, this is not what Jesus taught us within his journey here, some will be Politically correct to your face, then stab you in the back when you turn from them? These actions only promote more ugliness and hatred, we need to get back to ” Love Thy Neighbor”, so we then can get back to, our true feelings and emotions, show more love and empathy of each other, then we can actually take the right steps moving forward, of how to make not only this society better and stronger, but make ourselves better and stronger, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

With each little journey within this bigger journey, there is so much beauty around us, there is so much to truly see of what God created for us, the only way to truly see it is, we need to step out of our comfort zones, step out of our in actions, and get back to our true actions, get back to who we truly are, get back into the house of God, so we can truly feel the blood of Jesus Christ warm our hearts and flow freely within our bodies. When the blood of Jesus flows within us, we then will have the empathy of one another, so we than can get away from the ugliness and hatred, as we move forward within the proper changes, for us all to be better and stronger, as we walk our paths through this journey of life, within the peace and joy, that Jesus showed us as he walked this journey with us.

” The many journeys within this bigger journey, are what shapes us into who we truly are”

” Change is all around us throughout this journey, it is how we accept and adapt to the change, that shapes us into who we are”

Happy Birthday to the Catholic Church

” Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed”

Romans 12:2

” I have set before you life and death****therefore choose life”

Deuteronomy 30:19

Thought of the day:

As the first church was created, the world was upside down. the imprisonments, deaths and ugliness were overwhelming, Jesus Christ hoped to change our world? but how can we really change when, we are deeply afraid to take a stand or even, to stand out?

There are many bridges and cross roads throughout this journey of life, the thing is, the bridges break down over time, the cross roads with so much traffic, become riddled with ruts and grooves, that can get us all twisted and bruised. We all want everything handed to us today, nobody wants to work for anything anymore, which makes for the bridges not being attended to, or the cross roads not being groomed as well. Back about 2,000 years ago as the Catholic Church was created, that society back then was just as bad as this society today, the big difference is, the technology we have today. Now with technology, it was suppose to make life easier for us all? but in a lot of ways it has complicated life in so many ways, and in ways we truly do not understand.

We the people are what’s wrong in this society and we the people can fix it moving forward. In a lot of ways we all think we are better and smarter than each other, which leads to much head butting, and we as a society not coming together in unity. For instance, when something gets invented you go through a series of experiments, you go through multiple think tanks with many others, you just can’t invent something thinking this is the change all, without getting out all the bugs and issues. Nothing is perfect, not even we the people, as much as some may think they are?

When Jesus came to us and walked this journey through life with us, he taught us many things, he showed us of how not to just be a fishermen, but to be a Fisher of Men. he showed us how to treat each other with respect, so we than can show our love and empathy to each other. He protected us from the evil, while showing us how to resist temptation, as he himself resisted the temptation from Satan. We in this society and because many of us have forgotten what the inside of the house of God looks like, and in many ways given into the temptation of evil and Satan, we have buried our true feelings of love and empathy, as to try to protect ourselves from all evils, which does nothing except, makes our hearts go cold, and stops the heart from letting the blood of Jesus Christ flow freely throughout our bodies. We of this society today, think very strongly that, we know more than all others, which because of this mindset, has lead all into the path and destruction that Satan wants, as we all have gone in the other direction of what Jesus wants for us all.

Change is good, change can be difficult and bring much pain, but if we do not adapt to the change, then we as a society will never see the light at the end, as we all stay within the darkness of Satan and all it’s ugliness it brings. Satan wants us all to be hateful of each other, as this is what divides us moving forward, hate is a learned thing and we have learned it from somewhere? We need to find where we learned it, so we can unlearn it and get back to true love. Everything around us will change constantly, even we ourselves will go through many changes as we walk our paths, we will go through many changes throughout this journey, but if we never adapt to the change, then we will never fully walk any path we choose, along this journey of life.

The Catholic Church was created to give us a place to worship, a place to go listen to the words of God, so we can implement them within our lives? But as time passes and we change and in some ways for the worse, then everything around us becomes diluted with we not being true to ourselves or even true to Jesus Christ. The Catholic Church is a place we go to keep the faith in Jesus as well as ourselves, so when there is faith, there will always be hope moving forward. When we keep the faith in Jesus and ourselves, no matter what this journey may throw at us, we will always walk our paths with confidence, as we never lose site of the light from the path of righteousness, which keeps those dark days to a minimum, like the night giving way to the daytime.

The Catholic church is no different than anything else along this journey, it has gone through many changes from when it was created, which is what makes it successible like we ourselves, to the changes of life. The church in a lot of ways has given into the temptations of Satan, with all the power, control and greed, which has had it lose sight of the true words of Jesus Christ and then interpreting them to you and I as they see fit. Yes they have had some scandels in the past, and some of these scandels has led us away from the church, maybe if these scandels were handled better and in a way like Jesus handled the temptations from Satan, then our faith would be alot better, leaving us with better hope moving forward.

Sometimes through change things become frazzled and out of focus, when this happens, sometimes it is best to go back to basics, to move forward even stronger. Some in this society want to take away all the history, to give you nothing to glance back at, so you can fix what you need to fix, they want you to become so dependent on them, that you then do not walk a path through this journey for yourself anymore, and now you have become the sheep within the herd, for the small majority of shepards in this world. When we all come together in unity, when we all get back to truly being of who we are, when we all get back to the faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, this is how we get back to truly feeling the love and empathy within us, as the hate and the ugliness find they can not affect us anymore, when we then as Jesus did many times, resist the temptations of evil, so we all then can see the true hope in front of us, as we walk our paths in peace, and find much joy throughout this journey of life.

” The Philosophy of life is really very simple, just that we the people have twisted in so many ways that we have become out of focus from it”

” The bridge over troubles waters have become frazzled and in need of a fixing to keep all moving forward without falling to the peril below”

The many journeys

” We all walk a path through this journey of life, we tend to forget that along the path are many smaller journeys that make up the bigger journey for us to be better and stronger moving forward”

***BowlingChef***

We all have our own likes and dislikes, and the only way for us to find out what they are, is to explore everything around us, so we can find out just what those likes and dislikes really are. There are so many things to chat about in order to determine what you like or dislike? The only one that can determine this, is you yourself. others may support you, or they may guide you, but ultimately, it is you, who truly knows what you like or dislike, as others can only speculate, or simply just give you ideas.

Yes we all walk this big journey called life, but within this journey are so many paths to choose from, we can become so overwhelmed, that quite frequently we will choose the wrong path, and as we keep choosing many paths, can and will become so lost within this big journey, that we then stop walking and start wandering, with no true direction of where we are going? It is okay to explore other paths, as this is the way we find what is the true path for us, not everybody will walk the same path, as we all have very different likes and dislikes. Yes we need to explore each path to find out if it is the right path, but when we get to deep into the path and lose sight of how to get back to the crossroad that turned us down this path, now we become lost along this journey, as now the clouds of our judgments have clouded what is in front of us.

This journey through life will also throw us curve balls, it will also have these life events that come to us. These events are very different to each of us, they are also either very hard to deal with or very miniscule and easy to deal with, yes they can control us as well, and when we let them control us, now we become someone for who we truly are not. These life events are part of life and yes they can come to us by another, who want nothing but to control us moving forward. So as you become lost within this journey, the only way to truly find your way back, is to keep exploring other paths, and stop hiding within yourself, for this does nothing but keep you wandering, without truly walking a path of this journey through life.

Everybody has their own way of dealing with the ups and downs this journey brings to us, some may find different ways to explore and clean the cobwebs that life will bring to us, for me, I love the outdoors and exploring all it has, plus the getting away from the rat race for even a short time, helps with the healing of the mind, body and soul. Mother Nature has her way of giving you a different outlook of what is around you. It is when you do not explore what life has out there, now you continue down a path, that is not really for you, and you then become bitter and unhappy, as you walk through this journey. The more bitter you become, the more hatred you develop, as you can clearly see all the hatred within this society we all walk our paths within.

Hiking, off grid camping, kayaking, these are great outlets to totally relax and clear the cobwebs, now true some may not like these, but there are so many more outlets, you just have to explore and find the right outlet for you. These outlets will help us refocus, determine things we have forgotten about, so we can get to truly of who we are, then get back to walking with confidence, along the path of this journey through life. Now some may not want us to remember any history, but it is the history we need to remember, so we don’t repeat it moving forward, plus it is the history, that helps us glance back and fix what we need to fix, as we move forward better and stronger, while we escape within Mother Nature and heal ourselves, not too mention, look at all the true beauty all around you.

Look out into the horizon, it may seem endless at first glance, but as we grow and learn correctly along this journey, we find many horizons for us to explore. Whether your looking at a horizon from the top of a mountain, as you paddle a kayak along the river, or maybe sit along the sandy shoreline and staring into the ocean, the place we look into the horizon may be different, as each path we walk, but the horizon is all the same, just like this journey through life we all walk together. There are so many similarities all around us, but if we do not truly see them, then all will always be different, no matter how we look at them. When your path is full of bumps that will bruise you and leave a scar, it becomes all about how you get up from the fall, dust yourself off, heal the bruises correctly, so you than can move forward better then you were. Some may get right back up like nothing happened, while others either never get up, or take a very long time to get up, it is not about the time it takes you to get up, it is about how you get up from the fall, how you stay true to who you are, without hiding within yourself, and never really reaching your true potential.

There are so many little journeys within the even bigger journey we all walk, the key, is for us all to explore and find the right one that best fits us, then excel within that journey, so we can be truly of who we are, so when we walk our path we choose, we actually do the work of clearing that path of the obstructions, so we can move forward better and stronger, within the peace and happiness we all so need and deserve, as we walk through this journey of life.

” This journey comes with many ups and downs that will knock you down and bruise you, which then makes it of how you pick yourself up and heal from the bruises of life”

” Just as you look deeply into the Abyss, look deeply into the horizon and ask yourself, of just how to get to that point and explore all that comes before you”

The many Vines throughout the journey of life

” I am the true vine, and my father is the vine grower”

JN 15:1

” If you keep my Commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my father’s commandments and remain in his love”

JN 15:10

There are many vines throughout this journey of life, these vines will come in various shapes and sizes. Now some may relate to a vine growing a fruit on them, like a grape or a raspberry? But the vines will grow many things on them, so they can flourish and prosper. Tree’s are a form of a vine with many branches, for the many various leaves that will grow upon them. We ourselves are the branches of life, starting from the foundation of a mother and father, expand out into the branches, and then growing it’s own fruit, so the vines of life can keep flourishing, to be better and stronger as each society grows and keeps moving forward.

With all the dead wood we see all around, goes to show that yes, there needs to be death, so that life can continue. For every dead branch that falls to the ground, there are many more new and fresh branches just beginning their journey. With the new branches, comes new fruit to make the branches stand out from each other, we to are like the branches, as there are no two branches alike, there are no two of us alike as well. The problem then lies with each of us, simply because we let ourselves get so caught up with all the ugliness and chaos, we then forget to see all the true workings and the beauty, throughout this journey of life.

The tree’s that sprout the branches that grow the fruit upon them, can grow anywhere, just as we can grow anywhere and become anything, or anyone we want to be, then as we bear the beautiful fruit from our labor, will show just how diverse we really are. No matter where you look throughout this journey, there is diversity at every turn, just that we tend to overlook the diversity, as we get too involved with the ugliness around us.

We all think that we are better than each other, we all try so hard to get ahead of each other, that we forget to just simply walk the path we chose, so we can groom it and take out the obstructions, to move forward better and stronger. We each have a job to do within this journey, but we have all become so lazy, that we have wandered away from doing that job. Just as Jesus taught us when he walked his path here with us, when we walk together in harmony, while sharing our love with each other, this journey will reward us with great beauty, it will reward us with much prosperity as well, so we all can walk our paths in peace, while we move forward in this journey with happiness, as we all make strides toward the path of righteousness, just as Jesus showed us while he was here, and still shows us, with the signs he sends us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” There are many different kinds of vines in this journey, with each one bringing it’s own beauty to the forefront”

” The branches and the limbs always have a strong foundation, so they can showcase the fruits that they will later produce”

” Diversity is everywhere and all the fruits on all the branches drive home that point with all the true beauty all around us”

The Rip currents of life

” Life has its ups and downs, it will knock you down at times, it comes full of many changes and if you can’t accept change, you will never pick yourself up to move forward better and stronger”

This journey through life will throw many curve balls at you, now some of the curveballs may hit you and yes it will hurt with real pain, but if you never adjust what you need to adjust, you will never be able to hit the ball as far as you can. This journey has its own way of teaching us, just how to walk it correctly, but if we do not pay attention to the signs it gives us, then we will never learn how to walk correctly our paths, through this journey of life.

Do you know what the biggest problem in this society is? We the people. It’s we the people that need desperately to change our ways. We will attack each other without even thinking of the ramifications of our actions. Then with all the Technology out there, it has created all these platforms we know as social media, the problem there is, we now have truly forgotten just how to, react face to face anymore, we hide behind our devices and ridicule and attack one another even more than we have done in the past. Because of social media, nobody has the scones to actually chat face to face anymore, simply because they are afraid of offending someone? Well, I have a news flash for you…….. What do you think you are doing, while you are on your platform attacking another? We will never think twice about stabbing one in the back, but we will always take the easy way out, by not even saying what is needed to be said, let alone say it face to face. We the people are totally responsible for the way this society has become, and we the people are the ones that can totally fix this problem, only if we all grow up and get back to truly communicating with each other, and get off the platforms if you only bring hate to another.

We need less of the platforms and more of the true face-to-face interactions with each other, so we can actually communicate in a healthy way. even the emails we send are a form of the platform now, simply because it the easy way out of communicating, we do not want to offend a person face to face? Oh, wait!!! Just send them an email, that is the mentality of today’s society. When you do not truly communicate with another, now you are creating speculation, and with speculation, now you are creating more hatred at every turn along your path of this journey. There is so much hatred out there, that we have lost any kind of love and empathy for one another. Love and empathy are within us all, we just have to acknowledge them, so it can lead us from temptation, and into the peace and joy we all so desperately need. Right now we have buried our love and empathy so deep within, that our hearts and souls have become cold, we buried them simply because, if we do not truly feel them, now we do not feel any guilt while we attack one another, plus the fact that, we all have been hurt in one-way shape or form, so we are putting up a shield, to protect ourselves from further hurt.

Within this society of today, is like trying to swim upriver against the strong current, our bodies have become so tired, that we want to only sit in our easy chairs and be like an armchair Quarterback, we just think we can say something to someone and they will jump at our command? Nobody wants to be a true leader, they only want to follow, like the sheep to the Shepard. Those within our Governments and within the media will only tell you what they want you to know, they will never tell you the real truth, as they all have their agendas, of which we the people are not within those agendas. This society has become about gaining all the power, to have all the control, to then have all the wealth over everything. While achieving all this, the love and the empathy gets buried so deep, it is like it does not exist anymore, and that is very sad of just how this society has become.

When Jesus Christ came here and walked his path with us, he taught us many things, he never taught us how to attack one another, this is totally on each one of us, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life. The Technology we have is awesome, but when you expand it to cover all the fear and hate agendas, now you have turned all the technologies totally against, what they were created to do. We need to stop with the attitude that we ourselves are the only ones in the world, and start walking together in harmony throughout this journey, make a concerted effort to stop the attacking of one another, especially on these platforms, get back to who we truly are, so we can fix the errors of our ways, which will help us once again truly feel the warmth of the love and empathy within our souls, and as the warmth heats up our hearts, then the blood of Jesus Christ will flow throughout our hearts and our bodies, so the cold, dark days of Satan will disappear, as well as all the hate that is around us today.

” Time to break free of the strong currents of life and get back to who we truly are, so we all can walk in peace along this journey of life”

Just because you do not see him…….

” My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me”

Psalm 101:6

Hope for today:

It’s tempting to look at men and women in scripture and think they were superhuman or ultra holy. The same God who walked with them walks with us, we just need to remain faithful knowing his eyes are on us.

The time that Jesus Christ came and walked his journey here with us is so far removed, that within todays society we just do not acknowledge his existence? This is the problem today, and what has led us into a life of non faithfulness, which then leads us into a world of no hope, as without faith there will never be hope. Jesus is within us all and when we keep our faith in him as well as ourselves, we can clearly feel his warmth within our hearts and souls. That warmth you feel in your heart, that is the love of Jesus comforting you, which then you share that love with all those around you. This love is all natural to us and very easy to share, the hatred we see is not natural, and is learned from other sources such as Satan himself, with the hate only shows not just how cold our hearts have become, but how cold we have become toward one another.

There are three words that best describe this society today, power, control and greed. With the far left liberal media and the so called leader’s within the walls of Washington DC taking center stage through it all. All these Individuals have an agenda whether they admit it or not? These agendas will benefit them only and leave the rest of us out in the cold. Their biggest agenda is to bring more unwanted drama to us all, they will tell us only what they want us to know, and never tell us the real truth, they will tell us so many lies that they themselves will then become engulfed in the world of denial, which has them telling so many lies, that they lose touch with true reality. The power of denial is so strong, that it will strip you of who you truly are, as now you yourself will not even recognize yourself, even when looking into the mirror.

Throughout this journey of life, we never know what lurks around each corner that is in front of us? Just like this picture as you stare into the thick forest, you do not know what lurks deep within the thick woods? This is where the faith and the trust in yourself and in Jesus Christ comes in, as then you can have the hope to walk through with confidence, as now you have become better and stronger for it, as you walk your path of this journey through life with great hope moving forward. Our so called leaders and the far left liberal media with their sick twisted agendas, have lost this concept, which they then bring us their far fetched rhetoric and propaganda’s.

These storm clouds hovering above these mountains may look mean and nasty? Yes the storms can wreak havoc and bring damage, but when you are prepared, and keep to your faith in yourself as well as Jesus Christ, this is the confidence you need, to walk through these storms unscathed, as now you have reached the light and the bright sun on the other side, which brings you the peace and the joy that you are searching for. This journey of life has many paths for us to walk, yes we may take the wrong path that will bring us many storms, but if we never keep to the faith in Jesus Christ as well as ourselves, we will never get to the right path, that will bring us great hope, within the peace and the joy, that we all are searching for.

Just because you do not see Jesus Christ, does not mean he does not exist? He is within us all, he warms our hearts with his love for us then to share with each other, he lives within our souls and guides us along our paths, as we then move forward throughout this journey, so we can get to that path of righteousness, which brings us all the peace and happiness we so deserve. Just as God brought to us his son, Jesus one day will bring to us his son, so we can be renewed into the faith, and see all the hope right before us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life. What we all lose sight of today is, the fact that we all have lost that feeling deep within of the love of Jesus Christ within our hearts and soul, we let the power of denial control every fiber of our being. Then when denial is front and center within us, we then lose who we truly are and suppress it so deep within, that know we move forward portraying this fake self to those around us and we black out what is real, to replace it with what is fake. Just like we have many streets to drive within this society, so to are their many paths to walk throughout this journey, without the faith of ourselves and Jesus Christ, there will never be any hope moving forward.

” Just because you do not see Jesus Christ, does not mean he does not exist”

” We drive many streets in our lives, we forget that there are also many paths to walk through this journey as well”

” When the storms encompass us all, we need faith and confidence to have the hope to get through them unscathed”

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 ”

What’s in a Journey

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

There are many paths within this one big journey,

A journey is made up of what we make it,

Not all paths will be paved or groomed,

Some paths may require hard work and planning,

There is no set path as it comes to each of us to blaze our paths,

A path by one which seems to bring joy and happiness,

May not be the same path for you as well,

We all have our own likes, differences and dislikes,

So as to find that right path for you is like finding your purpose to walking this journey through life.

This journey through life will come with many headaches, pain and sufferings,

This journey will also come with much joy and happiness bringing us all peace,

This journey is many things and with faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ,

Then the hope will always guide us as we blaze our paths through this journey,

We can change our paths at any time along this journey,

Yes some change will bring us pain and sadness,

But change for the right reasons and change at the right time will bring us great joy,

Change is a big part of this journey and helps us to be better and stronger,

Which is why we need to embrace all change, sift through the different changes,

So change at the right time and change for the right reason will bring us great happiness.

This paths along this journey of life will have many obstacles and bumps that will leave bruises,

It is when we let the bruises dictate the direction of our journey we become lost,

This journey is more about how we get up and heal from the bruises,

Then it is about staying down and becoming depressed from the falls within the journey,

Part of growing into a society of many is how we grow and learn from the bumps and bruises,

Sometimes other factors stop us from growing further and stop us from getting up,

But when we dig deep and when we stay true to who we are,

There is no end to what we can do as the sky is the limit throughout this journey.


To reach the summit of the mountain will come with great reward along the path of the hike,

The trail you hike to the summit is a path with many obstacles that will knock you down,

But as you learn along the trail when you pick yourself up the reward is great at the summit,

Hiking a mountain is very similar to walking your path of this journey,

The paths will challenge you, have many obstacles in your way and knock you down at times,

But we learn how to pick ourselves up along the mountain trail and continue up the mountain,

The reward then is that much more beautiful,

The journey of life may be similar, but also has some difference to it like other variables,

That may consume us and keep us in the clutch of darkness with no light,

But the same of the hike as in the journey of life,

When we stay true to who you are, keep the faith of ourselves and Jesus Christ,

There is nothing that can keep us down and we will always get up better and stronger,

No matter what path we walk, what mountain we climb, throughout this journey of life.

” The reward is great no matter what path you walk throughout this journey of life and as you take the right steps as well”

” Through darkness comes the light with great happiness when the journey you walk is correct”

” change can hurt and change can be beautiful, but change that is embraced will help smooth out the path”

” The bumps and bruises can hurt, but never let them dictate the direction you take along the path you walk”

Does Volatility really pay?

The way the year of 2020 went, and so far in 2021, there really has been no change, I really think the worst is still to come…..” I hope I am wrong”. With what happened in the stock market yesterday, and all the media filling us with their crap, from what this sounds to me is, and yes I looked at many good sources for this, this has become a financial fight between the little guy, and the so called ” big powerful financial elitist”. It is really sad that the actions, or should I say the in actions of some, have turned into great division among us. Just because the party of Denial (democrats), want all the power, control and greed of everything around us, the rest of us have to suffer and feel great pain from their stupidity, all this ugliness we are seeing before our eyes, proves beyond a shadow of doubt, that we all have buried our true feelings deep within, so deep, that our hearts have gone cold toward each other, the love of Jesus Christ that warms our hearts with love, is also buried deep within with our true feelings, and if we only truly enter the doors of the house of God, to truly believe, with true faith, then just maybe there will be hope for us all, so we can move forward, as we walk our paths, through this journey of life.

This Journey of life that we all are embarking on, really does not have to be like this, it’s just that some, in some way shape or form, have been hurt really bad, so bad that their hearts have become full of the cold, that Satan wants. We all have been hurt in many ways, but when we bury that hurt without trying to fix the wrongs, now we don’t give ourselves a chance to truly heal, and when we don’t heal, now we become someone for who we truly are not. I get the fact that we all want change, but when we keep the status Quo, then we really do not get any change that we want. Very true that change can be tough and bring us more hurt, but when we do not change for the right reasons, then we will never know just how much change can be so beautiful, all the ugliness around us today, starts with each of us, each of us too truly change for the better, so we all than can bring much happiness and joy to each other, as we all walk our paths, of this great journey.

Just maybe, what happened in the stock market yesterday will bring change? change where it brings the big guy and the little guy, on equal footing, instead of the big guy always becoming rich and the little guy losing everything? I get it, that the market gets affected in many different ways, and ways that most of us don’t truly understand, which is why we need to pay the big guy to help us understand, but if this changes the market for the better, with the words that we all can understand, then so be it, so we all can prosper and live within peace throughout this journey we all walk.

I am going to quote a movie from Stephen King, the green mile, ” Boss, I am tired, I am tired of all the ugliness within this world”, this is a great movie, and those who haven’t seen it, need to see it, not just sit and view, truly understand the true plot and message of the movie. Some may say King is bit out there? But the truth is, he hit it out of the park with this movie, like Big Papi, hitting a walkoff homerun, to win the World Series. I am not a big fan of Hollywood, as most within the walls of this area, try to bring their fictitious world, to the reality of this world around us, but Hollywood has come up with a few great, inspiring movies from time to time, with the Green Mile at the top of the list. I can think of another which also was a book from Stephen King, and it is ” the stand”. The stand is very similar to what is happening now, with this ” China Virus”, it is about a plague that slowly kills all around the world, sound familiar? There is another book out there that some do not want you to view, the book is 1984, by George Orwell, what was in the book is very similar to what is going on today. The far left Liberal Communists, want to take away our history, cause they do not want us to know what happened, as this is part of their political game of, power, control and greed, but history is how we learn to fix what we need to fix, so we can move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths, through this journey of life.

This journey through life really does not have to be this hard, it is we the people that make it hard with our actions, it is the fear of change that keeps us from learning of our mistakes, the same fear keeps us from truly feeling our true feelings and emotions, with this fear having us hide deep within, while we portray a fake self, to all those around us. When we attack one another, this is not truly of who we are, just like when Eve got Adam to eat the forbidden fruit, this is the start of all the ugliness, just that within this society, we have taken it to levels of the unknown. Social media has robbed us all of the simple task of confronting one another, now we sit behind our devices, and bring hatred and ugliness, with a few strokes of the keyboard, then never do we hold ourselves, or each other accountable. When we truly fix ourselves, fix all our wrongs, become the person of who we truly are, have complete faith of ourselves and Jesus Christ, then our hearts will become full with warmth once again, with the love of Jesus, then once the love fills us, we then can take this love and share it with each other, so we all can, once again walk our paths, of this journey through life, within the peace and happiness, that Jesus showed us on his journey with us, as we all become better and stronger moving forward. God bless us all, as we get away from all this hatred and corruption, and move forward into a better and more peaceful world, for us all to prosper together in unity.

” Power, control and greed is the evil, love, happiness and peace is the good”

” The pain and the hurt doesn’t have to dictate our journey, let the love do that to become within the true happiness”

” This journey through life really isn’t that hard, it’s we the people that have made it this hard with our actions”

The light of Jesus Christ is with us all throughout this journey of life

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The light of Jesus Christ is within all our souls and beats within our hearts, Jesus is always there when we need, he will always heal us of our troubles. Jesus came and walked this journey here with us while sharing his love with us all, he sacrificed and died for each of us, so we can be free, not just as we walk our paths through this journey, but free of anything that we may encounter along this journey. This journey may not be perfect, we may not be perfect, but when we acknowledge Jesus Christ within us, this journey will be as close to perfect as perfect can be.

The darkness that encompasses us all today within this society, only comes to us as we have lost touch with the love of Jesus within our hearts, we have strayed away from the house of the Lord and put ourselves above Jesus Christ. The result of all this crap around us today, is a direct result of the fact that we all have lost the feeling of the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls. Our hearts have become cold towards each other as we only think of ourselves and put ourselves above one another, this is not what Jesus taught us when he walked this journey here with us, The problem of this society lies within each us and the solution is also within us, if only we could truly feel the love of Jesus within our hearts and souls. Within this fast paced society, where we want everything now and become impatient, most do not visit the house of God anymore, which the excuse ” I am too busy”, is the excuse of the day, instead of making a weekly trip and praying to Jesus, so we can heal ourselves of our troubles, when we do not heal properly, now we suppress and bury our troubles and try to move forward, but when we suppress we are only delaying til a later time, just we do not realize it at the time. Faith is a key component in our lives, not just faith in ourselves, but having the complete faith in Jesus Christ, as we walk our paths of this journey through life. When we lose the faith and have no confidence in ourselves, it is Jesus that helps us find it, so we than can have hope moving forward, as when there is faith there will always be hope.

We may walk many paths through this journey, but there is only one journey in our lives as we all have the same beginning and the same ending. The paths may change as other variables may change in our lives, these variables will come to us in many different ways, with some bringing much pain and hurt, there are many of us feeling the pain and hurt, and we all deal with it in our own way, we never talk to anybody of what ails us, because we don’t want to admit to any weakness, but as they say talk is cheap, on the contrary, talk will make us all rich, as it heals us within our souls, so we can keep moving forward better and stronger. For the most part, the pain and hurt will keep us from being true to ourselves as well as each other, it will have us hide within and become someone for who we truly are not, there are many today who are hurting, but we will never know, as they keep to themselves in this world of fast pace.

This journey may have many variables, but when we keep the variables to a minimum, this journey will then reward us with a journey well walked, Throughout this journey, Jesus is always within us no matter of what path we may walk, we just need to acknowledge him, so he than can help us heal from all our troubles. Jesus can’t help us unless we acknowledge him and when we distent ourselves from him, that is when our confidence goes away and the troubles seem to get bigger then they really are, which then the light turns to darkness and we become cold to everything around us.

” The light turns to darkness, then with faith and hope the darkness will then go back to the bright lights, that light up our paths moving forward”

” Talk is never cheap as true talk will help us become even richer then any amount of money will bring us to”
