Face all Fears with confidence through the Love

” Perfect love cast out fear”

John 4:18

” It is only the fear of God that can deliver us from the fear of man”

The only Cleric to sign the Declaration of Independence

John Witherspoon

Emotions may come and go, but we must never let them mislead us along the paths we walk. Feelings also may come and go, but the commitment will always stay, the commitment will keep us true to Jesus Christ, as well as having true faith, even at our most vulnerable times, and will keep away negative emotions like, doubt and fear. Jesus Christ chose the cross, forever committing himself to us, So let’s chose, on the front end, to be equally committed to him, no matter what trials or tragedies may come.

Fear will come to each of us at very different times, it will take full control as well. There are many different fears we will face, but none of them, with the true faith and commitment to Jesus Christ, that we can not conquor. A fear of anything is mostly of the unknown, and not truly knowing of what may be next to come, as we move forward through the fear. You climb a mountain and at the summit you are within the clouds of a storm, there is lightening all around you, and your hair on your head is standing straight up, from all the electric energy around you? This is a fear of not knowing where thr next lightening strike will be, and hopefully not a direct hit on the top of your head? You gain confidence with these types of fears, simply by knowing the right thing to do and taking shelter in a spot away from anywhere, that will reduce the chances of that direct hit.

Fear will also come from any unknown, like for instance, camping off the grid, in an area with no service, no runing water, no utilities, where you rely on a propane lantern or a campire to see at night. You are surrounded by thick forest and the night sky makes for a tough view at night, plus not knowing what is within the forest and fearing what may slip out of the forest, as it has you on alert, for every little sound or crackling of branches, within the thick forest. This type of camping will have you take the action of being prepared, while you are deep within mother nature, but with the true commitment in Jesus Christ and the faith in him, will give you all the hope for a safe time, to be had. Fear of the unknown is the biggest fear that will come to us all, and it will change you in many different ways, but if we handle this fear correctly, always keeping the faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, then there will be no fear we can not get through. Fear will bring the dark clouds of doubt over our heads, as they will not last and the light will be over us soon enough, with the true faith and commitment in Jesus Christ.

Through the fear of God, is the hope we will have to get through all the other fears we have. God is the one that can get us out of the darkness and into the light, but sometimes we fear God for the wrong reseasons, we let the other fears control us so much, that now we do not focus on what is real, then try to move forward in our own little made up realities, to try to escape into the fake world and try to be safe along our paths. Fear will have us bury our true selves deep within, as now we portray this fake self, so others around us will see us as okay? Once we are in this fake world, it becomes harder to escape that and get back to reality, cause now we have become conditioned with a fake feeling of security. This is when we need to truly keep the true faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, as he will guide us out of the darkness of the fear and into the light of God, so we all can walk our paths in peace, within the true joy of this journey.

We only fear God because, we have become conditioned from the darkness of the other fears and have lost the faith and the commitment of Jesus Christ. So many of us have walked away from the house of God, which is what leads us down this path of other fears around us. This leads us to the paths of many temptations, which will bring us these fears, and now without the visit into the house of God, we then try to walk through the darkness on our own, with no other around, to help us in the time of need. Just by looking into the deep forest, you may never see any other type of wildlife, but there are many types that live deep inside the forest, and when not prepared, it will make for a difficult time ahead. You learn with the faith and commitment in Jesus Christ, just how to move forward with each step, to overcome those fears, as now you can walk through the darkness of the forest and get back to the light of your camp, get back to familiar area and the comfort it brings, so you can step out of the darkness, as the light from the moon and the stars, light up the night sky, as you sit by the campfire and see all the true beauty all around you.

” Fear is within us all, it will take full control as well, it will bring us many temptations, and deeper into the unknown of the fear”

“When the darkness of the fear takes hold of us, it is the faith and commitment of Jesus Christ, that helps us out of the darkness and into the light of salvation”

Yet another Lenten journey

da9b9-lent_2013_40days

” A Leper came to Jesus and kneeling down begged him and said, “if you wish, you can make me clean”. Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand, touched him, and said to him, I do will it, be made clean”

MK 1:40-41

With yet another Lenten journey about to embark and open it’s gates to us all, may we all first take the trek back into the house of God, so we can rekindle our relationship with Jesus, to let our hearts be warmed with his love, to fill our souls, then bring the same warmth and love to one another, as we then take the 40 day journey of Lent, through this journey of life.

As we take this journey of Lent, we do so as we sacrifice something, just as Jesus sacrificed himself, for us all. When Jesus came and walked his journey with us, he did so while showing us all, just how to not only love ourselves, but to love all those around us as well. Jesus is the one who healed us from all the ugliness around us, he healed many from their sicknesses and their diseases, all we need was, to have complete faith in ourselves as well as in him, so we then can have great hope moving forward. Jesus has done a great deal for each of us, now as the journey of Lent is upon us, let us show him Respect, by honoring him, and sacrificing a part of us, through this journey of Lent.

When the Leper stepped forward into the eyes of Jesus, those around him flinched with his looks, but Jesus never flinched as he called him near, The Leper asked Jesus to cleanse him, and Jesus did just that with no regret. Those that were there and witnessed the cleansing, were in complete awe of this, as they to wanted Jesus to heal them moving forward. Even though we of this society have never seen or heard from Jesus, he is there, not only there, but with the faith in him, he gives us hope moving forward, as we walk our paths through this journey. The love of Jesus is always within us, and will never leave us, only that, with our actions and the clouds of our judgments, does then the love become buried deeply, as our hearts then become cold.

We of this society, and we of little faith today, have lost sight of the hope that is in front of us, because of some among us, we are forced to see all the ugliness, forced to bury the love deep within, which then fills our hearts with the cold of hatred, that clouds our judgments, that brings us into denial, without seeing the reality that is right in front of us. We are better than this, we are stronger than this, Jesus didn’t teach us this when he came to us, this is totally on us, the people who walk their paths of this journey, we have become so engulfed with the negatives, that the clouds are stopping us from seeing any positives. It really doesn’t have to be this way, this is not of who we truly are, as the love is always within us, and the hate is a learned behavior, of which we learn it from somewhere, or someone. Today we all have become the Leper of this society, and with this Lenten journey in front of us, may we all then, come before Jesus Christ and kneel, as we then ask him to heal us from this ugliness around us, so we than can dig down deep, get back in touch with his love, let the love warm our hearts once again, so the hate will disappear from us all, share the love with each other. Then as we are back in touch with our true selves, and as we keep the faith of ourselves and Jesus front and center, then the hope will always be there in front of us as well, so we then can move forward in strength, walk our paths to be better, throughout this journey of life, as Jesus showed us, when he came to us and walked his path among us.

The ugliness and the hatred within this society is totally on all of us, this is not of who we truly are. Just like the society back when Jesus came and walked his path, we of this society have let some, engulf us with their power, control and greed grab, that has forced us into the darkness, and away from the light. It is okay to travel through the darkness, as this helps heal us from our troubles, but when we get stuck in the darkness, with no light in sight, this is when we bury the love of Jesus deeply, as we try to minimize the pain, to keep the hurt as little as we can, the darkness keeps us in touch with reality, as the light is right around the corner. Even the light of the day, gives way to the darkness, but only for a short time, as the light comes back even brighter the next day, We are all encompassed within the darkness of the ugliness around us, this darkness does not have to last, so as we enter in this Lenten journey once again, may we all sacrifice something as Jesus did, so at the end of this 40 day journey of Lent, we then, can move into the light, with complete faith in ourselves and Jesus Christ, as the hope brings the love up out of the darkness within us, warms our hearts greatly, so we than can share this love with each other, as we now can walk our paths better and stronger, which then, brings the peace and happiness to us all throughout this journey of life.

” Through the darkness comes the light, just like when there is faith there is also hope”

” When the Leper steps out of the darkness we turn away, which further deepens the love within us”

” The 40 days of Lent is just a small sacrifice, then the sacrifice Jesus made for all throughout this journey”

The child within the child……..

robin

 

Robin Williams was a special man that walked his path of this journey together with us all. Like Robin, we all hurt deep inside of which we also hide that hurt very different from each other. Depression is what ate him apart from the inside out and he hid it well as he made comedy his thing, so he then made us all laugh while he hurt deep inside. We all have our issues and we all hurt from these issues, now the issues vary from one to another and no one is immune from the issues, just that some may attack them head-on, while others procrastinate and hide them deep inside, which only makes the issues more so than they really need to be.

We all grow into society from a young child, there is also a child within us all as well. This child within us also becomes affected when we struggle from the issues, then as this child grows within us from the pain of the issues, is how we grow on the outside as well. When we don’t nurture and take care of the child within, then we on the outside will never be nurtured and grow into society as healthy as we can be. Depending on the issues we suffer from and how we try to heal ourselves from our issues, this will affect us in many different ways, it will have us become someone we truly are not, but the biggest thing that will change us so……….. that we will bury our true feelings and emotions so deep within, that they will then keep us from feeling anything at all. The child within is key to us all healing properly from whatever issues that will affect most.

It is also so true that we are our own worst enemies and we as a person will hurt another only because we try so hard to be seen as normal as we can, we think that by hurting another then our own pain will go away, but only the opposite happens as we only compound our own issues further, while we never heal properly from what hurts us so. Yes sometimes the pain can be great from the issues, but if we never fix what we need to fix, or heal properly from what hurts us deeply, then not only will the pain and hurt never go away, but that child within us will never grow in a healthy way, leaving us on the outside to struggle and not grow properly within a society of many.

Robin Williams did it his way and choose comedy to hide his true self from us all, we all whether we want to admit it or not, do the same as Robin did and find our own way to hide our true selves from each other, which then leads to a society of brokenness and us all being fake instead of real. We all will go out of our way to hurt each other, but become lazy when it comes to healing ourselves. Before we can help another in any way, we first have to help ourselves, so when we love and respect ourselves, then we can love and respect each other. Plus when we take care of that child within so it can grow healthy, then we can grow healthy and enter a society better and stronger, while we not only help each other but bring respect, love, joy, and dignity to each other as well. We all walk a path through this journey of life, even though the path may not be perfect when we take care of that child within, then we not only can grow in a healthy way, but we can make the path as perfect as perfect can be, so we all can simply love one another instead of hating and hurting one another, which then we all can walk this journey in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” The child within the child is how we grow either in a healthy way or a very painful and hurtful way”

 

” Robin Williams was a great man that hurt deeply inside but never showed that hurt on the outside to us all”

 

” We all have our issues and no one is immune to these issues, it depends on how you deal with the issues to heal in a healthy way from the issues”

 

 

May the weight of the world be not a burden anymore

With yet another season of Lent and this being the blessed Holy week, if you look deeply into this picture and have complete faith in Jesus Christ our Savior, then you can see the face of Jesus Christ wearing his crown, that he wore, while he sacrificed himself, for us all, showing of how deeply he loved us all.

We all walk a path through this journey of life and with this journey comes many ups and downs, many triumphs as well as pit falls, many life events that not only will change the course of our paths, but will also bring much change to ourselves as well. A lot of times these events come to us not of our own, but in ways from another, just looking to control all that is around them? When these life events come to us and we do not take care of them properly, we then become silent along our paths, as we try to move forward while burying deeply our true feelings and emotions, we then forget of truly who we are and project forward someone who is truly of who we are not, as we are now hiding from one another, but because we are hiding from our selves, to ease the pain and hurt from the event that has come to us. When we hide deep within ourselves, we then totally forget about that little child within us, we cramp that child to the point that, we do not let that child grow properly within us, as we then do not grow properly within the world around us, when that child is healthy, we then are healthy as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

To let that child grow properly, then not only it will be healthy and productive, we then become healthy and productive throughout this journey. True when things happen our true instinct is to protective ourselves I get that, but the growth of that inner child is just as important as well. When we become scarred from a young age and suppress everything deep inside, that child then has no room to grow and as we think it is not effecting us, it it effecting us deeper than we think at that time, nobody ever wants to admit to failure, as when we do then we think all will see us as weak? We are never weak, it is our perception that makes us think we are. Even if our troubles come from another, or another thing, these things still harm us so much, that we will do anything to hide the pain and hurt from them, so we then suppress a big part of who we are, so deep within, that we forget of truly who we are. When we do hurt and when we have buried deeply of who we truly are, we also forget that having a voice will help heal us from our troubles, by voice I mean not yelling and screaming so others will think we are some crazed lunatic? but actually speaking out in a civilized way, so we than can stay in touch with our true feelings and emotions, while keeping the feeling of empathy close to our hearts, which help us heal from our troubles to move forward better and not stepping backwards, which will keep us hurting deep within.

That little child within yes is always there, whether we chose to believe or not, just like Jesus is always there with his love for us, whether we chose to believe and have faith in him, the real problem then lies within us and how we deal with each event or situation that may come to us. the solution is to stay in the moment, stay in touch with your true feelings and emotions always, never lose sight of who you truly are, regardless of what others may say or do to you. When you project yourself as strong, others will see you as strong, keeping the control hungry ones at bay, so you than can move forward better and stronger, with each step through this journey of life.

We don’t have to be silent and we don’t have to be too voice tress, we just have to be true to ourselves, stay true to our inner child, stay true to our real feelings and emotions, so we all than can be healthy, we all can then be respectful of one another without bringing harm to each other and as we all do this, we all can move forward better and stronger, as we walk our paths throughout this journey of life.

” Let the burden go as the weight becomes lighter, helping you move forward with ease”

” Holy week is a time to not just reflect of yourself, but reflect of Jesus Christ and truly feeling his love deep within your heart”

” We all perceive the same things differently which may divide us if we do not stay true to who we are”

” We all have an inner child within us, which helps us to grow in a healthy way when we don’t abuse or neglect that child”

The Ugliness is from we the People

” There is always light at the end of all the darkness, we just have to get through the darkness to truly see the light”

We all walk a path through this journey of life, so to did Jesus when he came here with us, Jesus saw all the ugliness we brought to each other, but he stayed true to himself and showed his love for us all, with every step of his journey. We the people are what’s wrong with this Society, as we will stop at nothing to bring this ugliness to each other with our actions.

Way back when Adam took that forbidden fruit is when the ugliness of sin started, which we have never learned through all these years, that ugliness is bad and only keeps that wedge buried deep between us all, until we all truly feel the love that Jesus showed us, that the same love is deep within us as well, we will never change and the darkness of all the ugliness, will forever hang over all our heads. When we truly feel this love within us and then share it with each other, that is when the darkness over head will disappear and we all can truly see the light, which will bring us to the path of righteousness, so we all can be at peace and happiness with each step of this journey.

We all start this journey very much the same way and no one is any different from another, okay we may have a different color, gender, or even religion, but these difference are what makes us unique to each other, it is just we have never learned to use the uniqueness the proper way, even after Jesus came here with us and showed us all. As we grow into this Society, there are plenty of ways along our paths for us to learn properly, but instead we attack one another in any way we can. Just like a school Bully will try to control us, we do the same to each other, when one looks a bit different, or maybe slow or challenged as we grow up as a child, we then mock and make fun of that person, showing no empathy or compassion for that person, we don’t think of that person at all, we only think of ourselves and how we look towards others if we don’t follow along. God forbid when that person gets hurt physically, then we proceed to laugh and make fun of even more, this is not of who we truly are, but it is who we have become over the years, because we have never learned by the error of our ways.

Now within this Society of great technology, with all the social media and the news media whether print or what we see on the television, we have created such great drama with all these gadgets we have in our hands, it has made it even easier to further all the ugliness, simply because we can hide behind these gadgets, without facing what we fear most in this society and that is, we fear the confrontation of each other above everything else around us. We have forgotten just how to simply talk to each other face to face, a lot of this comes from the Political correction we let in to our lives, we become offended very easily because this correction has weakened us so, through this political correction we have lost the ability to respect and have dignity of one another, which furthers the ugliness and makes the darkness even darker, with no light in sight.

With the light comes peace and when we are at peace, we are happy as we walk our paths of this journey. First we have to get over ourselves, even with all the technology we have, we really are not as smart as we think we are, everything we do we think we do it better than each other, we get so caught up within our own heads and our own little world, we then let the clouds of our judgments, simply cloud all our actions we may take. Just look within the walls of Washington DC, all these Individuals show nothing but ugliness and hate, we are going to have a Presidential election coming up in 2020 and already the Democrats and the Republicans are attacking one another. They have already turned the most powerful position on the land into one, with no respect or dignity, they have turned the office of President into nothing but a Hollywood celebrity contest, this next election is already shaping up into a three ring circus show, with zero respect for the office they are running for, we the people need to be smarter, we need to vote smarter and end all this corruption and hate, that flows within the walls of Washington DC.

We all have our troubles, but when we don’t fix those troubles properly, this is when we bring the troubles to each other, which furthers the ugliness around us. Through all this ugliness shows just how dumb we have become through the years of our existence, you would think we would of become smarter by now, we will never become any smarter as we keep attacking each other, as we mock and make fun of each other with each step, it really does not matter what part of this planet you are from, or who you may think you are, we are all Humans walking a path through this journey, the journey may have a lot to deal with, but when we do it correctly and while we truly feel the love of Jesus within us, then share that love with each other, this is how we make the journey feel easier, while the ugliness disappears and true peace and happiness comes to us, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

” The hatred comes from the ugliness we the people bring to the society, we need more love to truly be of who we are”

” Technology is supposed to be better and make this journey easier for all, but we have totally gone the opposite way from it’s intention”

” We the people started this ugliness, we the people can end this ugliness as well”

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”

Leave the hatred in the rear view mirror

” Through hatred we will always be checking the rear view mirror”

***BowlingChef***

Hatred is Satan taking over control of who we are, when we control of who we truly are, this is how we accept and recognize Jesus Christ within our hearts and souls. Nothing ever came out of hatred, except maybe ugliness like we see around us today. To look at what hatred does, all we need to do is, look back within the history of Mankind, to a point known as the Holocaust, this is what hatred does and nothing good ever comes out of hatred, not too mention the fact that some of us think that, Socialism is the best thing since the invention of the car? I got a news flash for you, just look at what Socialism has done to the country of Venezuela. Okay maybe some think it will never happen here in America? I got another news flash, Socialism is all about a one person rule, with that same person controlling all that you do, so unless we the people keep aware of whats happening, yes then it will happen here, whether you like it or not. Socialism is full of hatred and hatred is not truly of who we are. let’s learn from our history and leave the hatred behind, so we can move forward better and stronger within the peace of Jesus Christ.

Hatred comes too us in many ways, but hatred within sports has you never being able to either play or watch the sport you love. There is another Superbowl upon us, for those who may not know, a Superbowl is the last football game of the season, with the winner being the champion of that season. Over the last twenty years, there are the New England Patriots, with a quarterback names Tom Brady and a head coach Bill Belichek, who will be in their ninth Superbowl together, which is a record for both coach and quarterback of the same team, but as those who will hate on this team, will only achieve one thing for you and that is, the straight up fact that you will never enjoy this game for what it truly is and that is, it is just a game that an athlete not just plays, but truly gets to play the game they love. Anybody that says they don’t like winning, is only fooling themselves. Anybody that says they hate Tom or the Patriots, don’t truly know what the game of football is. Football is a game of strategy that is hugely all about being competitive, Tom is as competitive as they come, maybe just a bit more than another, but that is no reason to hate on him. My theory to all you hater’s is, ” You want to be a champion like Tom, then step up to the plate and beat a true champion”.

Hatred has never been good or kind to any of us, it is pure Evil from Satan, that does nothing but turns us all against each other at every turn. When we work together as God wanted us to, then we will all feel that warm feeling of love within ourselves, which is the love of Jesus Christ that is always within our hearts and souls, just that through this hatred, we don’t give ourselves a chance to truly feel the warmth, as we push it so deep within, that it becomes non existent, without any of us giving it a thought, or even acknowledging it’s existence. The love of Jesus Christ is the most beautiful thing we will ever feel and know, all we need to do is, truly feel and acknowledge it, so we all can move forward without looking in the rear view mirror and walking this journey through life, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve.

” Hatred is ugly, as love is beautiful just like the beauty within this picture”

” Hatred will have us moving backwards, as love will always have us move forward with each step”

” Football is a game of strategy with the best strategy on that day winning the game”

The True Christmas Spirit

           Just as this little tree is growing within this old tree stump, the True Christmas Spirit, grows deep within each of us, so we can become healthy, while we share the love of the Spirit with each other, moving forward throughout this journey of life. 

            The Christmas season is a lot more than just going to a store, fighting off the masses, just so we can buy the perfect gift, is there really a perfect gift? The only gift that should matter during this special time of year is, the gift of ourselves towards one another, especially those who are closest to us and are our Family, for whom we have a special bond, that we built a strong family foundation, that truly lasts the test of time. When you truly feel the warmth of the love of Jesus deep within your soul, then your heart will always be filled with this same warmth, especially when you truly have the faith in Jesus, as when he came to us, walked his journey truly showing us all that this love really exists. Jesus walked his journey with nothing but the faith of his father, the God that created us all, so we can walk our paths of this journey. With God our father, Jesus is our brother, teaching us that with faith, good will always win out over evil, leaving us all within peace and happiness always, throughout this journey we all walk. 

                  Now that we all decorate our tree’s, string the lights and get within the Christmas Spirit, Let us all truly feel the love deep within ourselves and not only share this love, but truly extend this love to last all year………….Every year. Through the love and faith in Jesus Christ, we all can walk in the peace and happiness always. The true Christmas Spirit doesn’t have to be just part of a season, as it can be very much a part of the journey we all walk, the Spirit lives within each of us, just we have to truly feel it, with complete faith in Jesus as well as ourselves. If we can beautifully decorate the Christmas tree within our homes, then we should easily, decorate the tree of love within us and feel it’s warmth every day of every year, throughout all our paths of this journey through life. 

                     Christmas is not that time of year to be spending within a store and waiting for inspiration to strike for the perfect gift. The perfect gift is already within us, maybe let the inspiration strike with a special hand crafted, made by yourself gift, that will Trump any gift, within any store. Inspiration can come from anywhere and when it does, plus when we just let the inspiration mix with the love within us, then we can create anything, that will totally help with spreading this Christmas cheer, not just throughout us all, but throughout all our paths, of this journey through life. 

” The true Christmas Spirit lives within us all and all we have to do is, truly feel it” 

” May we all truly feel the true Christmas Spirit and spread it totally throughout our paths of this journey through life” 

Twas the night before Christmas and not a creature was stirring, as we all wait for that special person to visit us all” 

” Santa Claus lives within us all, as we truly feel the warmth of love and unleash it to all for who is around us” 

I am Offended!!! Time to grow up.

” What is offended? Someone who is hurt, annoyed and disgusted. Your feelings become hurt by something, so you then become offended by anything that reminds you of that”. 

” Like the movement of the #meto, this movements had great intentions at the beginning, but when someone in the movement is offended by anything having to do with sex, but then goes to a rap concert, that sings about Gang Rape? Then what really offends you”?

                    Seriously…………. We of this Society are so screwed up and become so easily offended by anything, time for us all to simply grow up, fix what we need to fix, so we all can move forward better and stronger along this journey of life. Just because something or someone has come across your path and disrupted your journey, doesn’t mean you should disrupt the journey of everybody else? We all have feelings, we all react  differently to the same things, but we should never let these reactions, have an affect on all those around us. 

                    We all have been hurt by something or someone throughout this journey of life, there is no one exempt from this. The problem then lies with each of us and what we do with this hurt? What is the proper way to end our pain? Do we bury it like nothing happened? Or do we take corrective action to be better and stronger moving forward? I think the latter is better, so we can fix what is needed to continue moving forward throughout the journey. True that if only we fix our own issues, than just maybe? Whatever that has come to you and reminded you of a past traumatic event, now that same event won’t effect others around you, as you now become offended of everything, instead of fixing one thing, which is a lot easier to fix one thing, than to multi task at many things all at once. 

                     Now I don’t know about you, but almost all the time when all this stuff we are offended of comes to light is, right around one time of year and that is the Christmas season. This is suppose to be the most magical, the most loved, but yet we are so troubled during this time of year? You think it is time we all take stock in our lives, do sort of an inventory of ourselves, to not just clean out the old, but fix and repair ourselves, so we can move forward better, move forward without anymore hidden hurt, bringing us much pain. It is pretty sad that something from one generation, which was all good, now suddenly offends the new generation, which now has us all changing what was, to what is, so we can not offend who is around us. 

                       Love…………………Love is the answer to all the questions, especially the questions of us being offended by whatever crosses our paths through this journey of life. When we love each other instead of hating on one another, then there is no talk of being offended by anything that may cross our paths, when we become hurt and feel real pain of anything, then through the love we take a step back, fix what we need to fix, so we then do not suppress anything deep within, which will most definitely rear it’s ugly head once again later on at some point of this journey. We all need to be more sincere of this word love, this is a special word with a special feeling deep within us all, it is not a word to be thrown around loosely, like it is a word without meaning. We throw this word around so much and at everything we see, that this word has totally lost the true meaning it once had.   

                        You think these people that are talked about in this picture, are worried about being offended? Exactly right, these people were too busy working hard, to build themselves as well as their community, so they all can move forward better and stronger, throughout this journey called life. When you become to focused on offending someone, you are now stopped, you are no longer moving forward and life is passing you by. A big part of this offended era is, Social Media. Now there are many and I do mean many Social media platforms out there, each one will have you believe that they are the best one? But what they won’t tell you is, they are all the best ones for not only creating much drama in our lives, they are also responsible for making us offended by everything, other than the platform for who they are. Everything was so much simpler before the time of this Technology explosion, which brought us all the Social media platforms, We all worked hard walking our path, so this journey could be more of peace and happiness, for ourselves as well as those around us.  When things went wrong back then, we took the time and responsibility to see where we went wrong, fixed what needed to be fixed, to move forward better, in today’s Society and within our social platforms, we have become so lazy, that it is easier to suppress, than to work at anything that is well worth the work. 

” We need never suppress our true feelings, as they will always come back later and disrupt us even more the second time” 

” Love is always the answer as hate will only compound any situation of this journey through life” 

” Social media like everything else started out with the best of intentions, but we have turned these intentions into a negative and against everything good it once was” 

Faith in Jesus Christ always

               Can you see him? Look closely and with total faith, you shall see the face of Jesus Christ within this stump. The eyes, the nose, the mouth and wearing the crown of thorns upon his head, Jesus is everywhere and with total faith in him, you shall see him wherever you are. You see that is what’s wrong within this society, too many have wandered away from having faith in Jesus, as they think they can do without him? This is totally why we have so much corruption, ugliness and hatred around us today, plus without the total faith in Jesus as well as the total faith in ourselves, now we walk our paths of this journey through life, not just without a purpose, but with many troubles, whether we want them or not? 

               Jesus didn’t come to us just to walk this journey, he came to us out of love, he came to us to show us, just how to get to the path of righteousness, he came to us to show us that, no matter of what troubles you, when you hold him deeply within your heart, then there will be a warm feeling of love that will have you glow in joy and when you glow with joy, then it will permeate throughout all else who walk this journey as well, while the love of Jesus spreads like a wildfire through a forest.

               Now as we enter into another wonderful Christmas time of year, let us all remember the true meaning of Christmas, the day that Jesus was born into this World to walk his journey with us. Also with this day full of love, let us truly feel the love, so we than can spread it with each other and make this season even more wonderful, plus have it last all year, everyday.

” Through love there will never be any hatred, as there is no more room in the Inn for the hatred”

                    When we have total faith in Jesus Christ and ourselves, there will always be hope for better times on the horizon, as we then will be better and stronger along our paths, to face any kind of troubles that may cross our paths. We will be better at recognizing any kind of trouble that may be ahead of us, so we than can not only be ready, but be strong enough to fight off whatever the trouble may be.   We as we walk our path of this journey, are on borrowed time, or within rented space, simply because, we to are born into this World with a new beginning and with every beginning, there must always be an ending also. We all have the love of Jesus Christ within us always, just that this thing called ” Life” can and will overwhelm us, plus it will get in our way of truly having any faith, which then leaves us with no hope, for any kind of positive future throughout this journey. 

                    None of us really didn’t lose the feeling of love within us, just that we let all the ugliness consume us so, we let life get in the way of us entering the house of God, not just to worship him, but to chat with him, to forgive us of our wrongs, so we than can, forgive ourselves to truly heal from what hurts us so. Now let this Christmas season inspire us, let this season help us get back in touch with the true love of Jesus, so as not just to warm our souls, but to truly share it with each other, to help us all heal our wounds from the pain and hurt, that has us so troubled, as all the hatred and the ugliness goes away from us and we finally walk within the peace of Christ moving forward along this journey of life. 

” The love of Jesus Christ is always within us, we just need true faith in him and ourselves to truly feel it’s warmth” 

” Jesus is everywhere and can be seen everywhere, no matter of how you look at whatever you are looking at” 

” The warmth of the love of Jesus will and can, heal us from all our troubles we encounter on our paths”
