Small Town Americana…………

The Heart beat beat of true America, this is how America started, before all the big cities were built up. Everybody knew their neighbors and all those around them, unlike today where you walk down the street where you live and not know a soul who is nearest to you. America back in the day was a special place, where everybody helped each other without stepping on the others shine, Some may tend to think that, all Immigrants are welcome here even without the proper status? Now very true that America’s foundation was built by Immigrants, but Immigration done the correct way, which makes it very fair for all. You want to come to America and have a better life than where ever you are from, then go through the proper channels and work hard to not just improve your lifestyle, but the lifestyle of all Americans, who live in this great country of opportunity.

This is Wells River in the state of Vermont, far enough away from any big city, but yet it survives just as good as any city. The towns people pull together as one, to keep the town going strong, unlike those within any city, where they can’t even give one another the time of day. What is sad of today is, some can not survive within small town America, as they are too lazy to work hard in so the town can do as the town does best and that is to survive, within this dog eat dog world of today.

Now very true that the small town is a whole lot quieter, than any city of today, but don’t let the quietness fool you, the small town is just as busy, with all the hard daily work, by all within the small town. The beauty of the small town is a close second to the beauty of Mother Nature, with the both of them being greatly unique in their own way.

Small town America so rural, so out of the way from the true action of the cities, that the ones that don’t live within them, forget that they even exist? Once upon a time, within a time that we of this society have no idea of, a time of no automobiles and where horse back riding was a thing of the norm. a time where hard work was the thing, so we all could move forward better and stronger. A time we all looked out for one another against any kind of enemy, definitely a time that even through the hard work, we still not only found time to enjoy all that is around us, we found time to flourish with each other, as we moved forward in happiness, becoming stronger, as we walked our paths through this journey of life.

Just imagine within this picture a time with no automobiles within it, a time that had these hitching posts that you tied the reigns of your horse to, as you went inside the local general store to pick up supplies, or into the local watering hole as we once knew the bar as, plus while inside you chatted with the store owner, as this was considered your night out, unlike those of us today,  getting out to the closest disco, for dancing and drinks? Yes back in the day of old school Americana, they enjoyed their time, but they also worked very hard, so they could enjoy their time even more so.

 

” Small town Americana wasn’t just a place, it was where we all learned Respect and dignity moving forward”

” The roads may be paved now, but back then they were dirt and you learned how too stay clean as you traveled upon them”

” The heart beat of America beats strongly within the small towns within this great country”

” As the big cities grew bringing America into the future, the small towns stayed the same, keeping America with a great and strong foundation”

Strangers in the World……….

” I urge you, as Aliens and strangers in the World, to abstain from sinful desires”

***Peter 2:11 ntv***

 

The road is bare, the road is desolate, just like we of this society, as we have no clue of who each other is anymore. We are so wrapped up within our own worlds, with our own agendas, that we clearly can not see all who are around us anymore and it all starts, within the walls of Washington DC, as these so called leaders of ours, can not even see eye to eye, with each other, to the point that we the people, are the ones that truly feel deep within, all the pain and chaos, that those so called leaders are bringing to us daily.

These so called leaders and with their own agendas at hand, only see what they want to see and everything else to them, simply does not exist. When it comes time for them to be re-elected, then and only then will they say what we want to hear, then as they get re-elected, they move forward with their agendas, forgetting totally of who voted them in, to stay within the walls of Washington DC. The only ones at fault for these so called leaders to keep getting re-elected over and over again is, we the people who keep them within the walls of Washington DC. It is kind of like all the drama within the sport of football, with the taking of the knee, during the National Anthem, maybe if we the people would truly Boycott the sport, not spend the money or the time watching the game, just maybe the drama will go away and we can truly get back to watching the sport of football, as the players then play the game simply because they love the sport they play.

Maybe there are true Aliens out their in space within the milky way? But seriously!!! We are all Aliens to each other here on Earth, simply because………. We march to the tune of our own agendas, without sharing the love of Jesus Christ that is within our hearts and souls with each other as Jesus taught us, when he came to us and walked his journey here with us. We stab each other in the backs, we will stop at nothing to take each other down, thinking that we can jump further ahead of each other, If only we could see clearly along this journey of life, we would truly see that, its not about attacking one another, as it is all about, becoming one in unity, making this journey in great happiness and peace as it should be.

” This land is your land, this land is my land” such a great quote from a Patriotic song that is rarely played anymore, if we only get back to our past, instead of trying to wipe out the past, then just maybe we can move forward better and stronger, along our paths of this journey through life. We tend to forget that we are Humans walking a path, along this journey of life, we are only here for a short time, then we leave our bodies and go to a place……………. Well we will never know truly of where we go, til that day comes, as we all are born and start this journey in the same way, then as the journey takes us in different directions, we all then never finish this journey in the same way and who knows, we may not meet again, when our journey here comes to an end?

 

” We are Aliens to each other here on Earth, only because we march within our own agendas without showing empathy of each other”

” Is the road truly bare? Or just maybe the clouds of our judgments won’t let us see anything else?”

” The Aliens within the milky way of space, just may know more of us, then we know of each other”

” This land is your land, this land is my land, the only true way to find out is, for us to get out from within ourselves and truly see with our eyes”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The dark of the light, with the light of the dark

Seriously think about this!!! We of this Society have wandered away from any kind of thinking about anything, we say we think about things whatever those things are? But because of the no more thinking part, we have lost all sense of any of the true common sense that is within all of us. We have become like puppets to an almighty puppeteer, when the master speaks we listen and when the master pulls our strings, we go in the direction of the pull, without any kind of a resistance. Nobody wants to lead, as all we want to do is follow, no matter of the direction we may go. We need more trail Blazer’s like those societies of the past, without them then all our futures look bleek and boring, with no excitement on the horizon.

In order to truly see the light, there is darkness to pass through, just as the light will never be constant,    for there is always a darkness that passes by, so we can come to appreciate all things, without focusing too much on one thing, which will help us become more well rounded as we walk our paths, through this ever changing journey through life. Through the light there will always be darkness, as change will never leave us, which makes it that much more important to, being able to adapt to everything equally and without giving up, so we never become a puppet and just follow, so instead we than become the trail blazer, like Jesus did when he came and walked his journey here with us.

It takes darkness so we can truly see the light, so we than can truly appreciate all that we do with every step of this journey. Even like within this picture, you have a dead tree trunk, with a flower growing out of it? There is beauty all around us, you just have to truly look deeply in everything, without simply glancing or skimming over the top and becoming superficial of everything around you. Our leader’s today within the walls of Washington DC and while they get so wrapped up within the ” Washington Power Game”, have totally lost sight of true reality and have become a puppet to their own cause, without thinking of the bigger picture, or even becoming a trailblazer, to truly lead as they should be doing, when they signed up, for the office they hold.

True these flowers may not be the most fragrant, or the most picturesque?  But these flowers in their environment and where they are, makes everything around them shine in the light, brighter then anything, this is the sign of a true leader, someone who gets the job done, someone who never looks for recognition, someone who shines no matter of how dark the light may be, someone no matter of the change, adapts to the change and moves forward better and stronger, so they can keep the brightness of the light, no matter of how dark the darkness may become. These leader’s are out there, just that within today’s society and all the darkness with all the ugliness, makes for it very hard to truly see anything, which shows of how important it is, to let the light shine as bright as it can, so the darkness doesn’t seem as dark as it truly is. The light of the dark is always there, so to truly see the light, you need to look past the dark and not focus on the dark, as to helping the darkness never look as dark as it truly is.

 

” Where there is darkness there will be light, just like with faith there will always be hope”

” Cut the strings of the puppet, to truly become the person that you truly are”

” there is always true beauty all around us, we just have to see past the dark to truly see the light”

” Everything we may see has a beauty of it’s own, just as with the darkness, there will always be the light”

 

 

 

 

 

A little Empathy of each other goes a long way………

Okay time for my little buddy to make another appearance once again. For those who don’t know, this is little eight year old Martin Richards, he was taken from this Earth by two deranged Individuals, that decided to bring tragedy to the Boston marathon, as they placed two bombs, with one at the finish line, right beside this innocent young boy. This sign he holds are his words and shows just how special this young man was, with what could of been a great life cut short.

Within this society we all walk our journey’s, there is way too much ugliness, drama and hatred of each other. A lot of it simply comes from the way we not only treat each other, but the way we speak to each other, just drive down the road and you will hear a whole different vocabulary than what you care to listen to. Some will be nice to your face when you are around, then when you turn your back, forget the niceness and out comes the slander.  people of today want nothing more than to see others fail, make mistakes, or even fall and become hurt………… as they totally forget that they themselves have gone through the same, just that they don’t want to admit to their flaws at all.

Look no further than our so called leaders within the walls of Washington DC. They not only back stab each other, but they back stab the ones who put them into office as well. Now that we actually have a President that is working for the people that put him there, those on the left will do and say anything, to denounce everything he does, the people that the President tries to put around himself, so he can do an even better job than what he is doing now, have been scrutinized, ridiculed and have had lies put in their mouths, by those on the left, who will stop at nothing, to bring down a seated President. Those on the left won’t even call our President a President, simply because they are so far in denial. that they have lost all sense of what true reality is. We can’t even get a Supreme Court Justice confirmed, without those on the left, doing anything they can, to stall and delay, the conformation, only to better suit themselves, instead of the good of this great country of America. In Washington DC it is all about playing the game of power, instead of actually doing the job, for which they were voted in to do. It is time for each of us Americans, at the mid term elections, to really send a message to those on the left and anyone else, that is so far in denial, of what true reality is, as they are now on the outside looking in.

We of this society need to do a better job at showing true empathy and love of each other, before it becomes lost forever? Or even worse, more of us Humans become victims of a senseless tragedy, as did Martin Richards, on such an ugly day. It is just sad that we rally together when we truly need to heal and become better along this journey, but yet 95% of the time, we don’t even acknowledge each other, let alone show any kind of love or empathy, which happens to be feelings, deep within each of us. It all starts at the top, with our so called Leaders, these are the ones that need to not only work together, but coincide in their environment, so as to not only make this country better and stronger, but make the lives of all Americans better and stronger as well. Plus all those that are looked at as role models within the sporting world, they need to simply shut up and play the sport, that they get big dollars to play, instead of opening their mouths and spewing their hateful opinions, of an elected official, for whom they don’t care for and even further, when you use the sport you play and receive big dollars playing, for a platform to protest, I challenge you to take some of your big dollars to the community you live and put your money where your mouth, so you can make a difference, instead of being nothing but a pain in the Ass, with your uncalled for protests, taking away from the sport you play.

 

” No more hurting people……………peace”

*** Martin Richards***

” The easiest thing we do but we make it the hardest, is quite simply the way we chat with one another”

” Instead of looking at one another with hateful eyes, let’s try looking and seeing the good within all those around us”

” Good will always win over evil, just that we as a society are too consumed with all the evil around us, that we can’t see clearly through the clouds of our judgments”

 

 

 

 

 

To Radicalize and Socialism is not truly of who we are…….

” As many as are led by the spirit of God, these are sons of God”

Romans 8:14

 

” God is at work, even in the midst of the problems, pessimism and frustrations of our day, he alone is sovereign and that is why we can trust him, even when the way seems dark”

Habakkuk 1:5

 

While we walk through this journey of life, we walk our paths within a Society of many. Each Society over time is made up of all walks of life, no matter of who you are or, whatever religion, gender, or ideological thoughts you have, not even of whatever radical thoughts you may have, the problem with today’s society is, we are all walking within the clouds of our judgments, we all think in our own minds that, our way is the only way, only because we have lost the faith in Jesus Christ, which means that we have lost the true direction to the path of righteousness, for which Jesus had showed us, when he came to us and walked his journey here with us.

With some they may think they are above the law and operate in a reckless abandon kind of way, they cheat, steal, become very controlling and will abuse anybody that gets in their way. Some because they are so lost within themselves, will take complete advantage of, the weak minded and the young, so they can brainwash them to their sick and twisted ideologies and train them to not only be someone for who they truly are not, but have them do things that bring great harm, pain and hurt to the rest of us, simply because they know no better. All Religions are religions of peace, but those in the Muslim religion who are very radical, have twisted around the words in the Koran,  to suffice their sick and twisted ideologies.  Just like all who walk through this society in this journey of life, you have your good as well as the bad, just that we have become so fixated on the bad, makes it only seem as if the bad is winning in this crucial fight throughout mankind. We the people of this society have created all this hatred and ugliness around us and we the people, can simply uncreate it as well, all we have to do is truly believe and have complete faith in Jesus Christ, to guide us to the path of righteousness, where we all can walk this journey in the peace and happiness, we all so deserve.

With all the Terrorist acts that are happening Worldwide, you can clearly see that there are many who simply are not truly of who they are, then the talks of this thing called ” Radicalization”, shows of just how some want to totally have the power and control over the rest of us. Radicalization is nothing but a few picking out those who are either weak minded or young, to totally brainwash them, so they than can carry out their sick and twisted ideologies and bring much harm, pain and hurt to the rest of us, while through fear, they try to control everything around them. Back in the day to those who grew up through the 60’s, when they go against their up bringing, they were also known to be a Rebel and called a Radical of their time. Within today’s society and this Radicalization process, they have total taken this word and transformed it leaps and bounds, beyond what it truly means, The days of yesteryear and the times of today, are two totally different times, all the words and the ideologies, may be the same, it is just how they are translated within today’s society, which is nothing but creating more drama, hate and ugliness.

We all want to put our own stamp within the society for which we walk our journey in, but the problem then lies with the way we actually place the stamp within society. every society that has walked this journey through life, have their similarities to each other, true we can make improvements from one to another, but when we become too arrogant to realize that there have been mistakes made in past societies and we still repeat the process, shows of just how dumb we really are………. The solution is simple, it is okay to look back in the history of other societies, so we can fix what we need to fix properly, so we all than can move forward in our society, to not only be better and stronger, but walk our paths through this journey of life, in the peace and happiness that we all so deserve and with the total faith in Jesus Christ, we than can have the hope to do it with confidence in ourselves, as we truly feel the love of Jesus within our souls and share that love with each other.

 

” To radicalize is to be brainwashed, which in essence you are now a part of the “cult” of the dark side, known as the evil side”

” Socialism never works, just look at the country of Venezuela and all it’s ugliness”

” Words come to us in our minds first, then we speak the words with our mouths, somewhere in between we then put our own spin on the spoken word”

” The stamp of life we all so want to leave within the society we walk, the problem lies with how we actually go about placing that stamp”

” The best things in life are free, the air we breathe, the stars at night, the wonder of Human love, but the greatest gift of all is our salvation, purchased for us by Jesus Christ………….. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift”

2 Corinthians 9:15

 

Within today’s society of fast pace and full of technology that has made life easy for us all, we have also become lazy with our work ethnic, where we want the world to cater to us, but we do not want to work for what we want? Just like when we take a trek up a mountain, there comes work to get to our destination of the summit at the top of the mountain, yes you have to climb up hill and a lot of the up hills are very steep, as you climb quickly in elevation to get to the summit. Now to achieve the reward of the beauty and the great scenery at the summit, you first have to put in the work of climbing up a trail for which you trek.

Now I am not saying that all of us have lost that hard work ethnic that has made this country great, just that it is becoming instinct and needs to be fixed before it becomes lost for ever.  A good work ethnic is one that, when you start a job within a company, you are not afraid or not ashamed to start at the ground floor and work hard while you climb the ladder of success within that company, as you climb the ladder within that company, also comes the great rewards of pay raises, that simply shows you that, you are somebody of which others do notice your hard work ethnic within the job you do, not too mention of what it does to your spiritual being deep within your soul. This spiritual being is part of our DNA, our make up of who we truly are, this is what makes our self esteem grow, as we then feel good of ourselves, moving forward along the path we chose, through this journey of life.

We all want the toys of life, the material things for which we consume along this journey, but being lazy and not working a job, because we simply don’t like the job, will never have us achieve any success, so we than can buy whatever material item we wish to buy. Bouncing around from job to job, is no way to develop a good strong work ethnic, never mind of not only building a great foundation in your work life.

With a great work life and the starting on the ground floor of your life, is what completes us as a Human Being, we respect all the things around us more as we grow into this world, that little child within us grows better and stronger as well, which then has us on the exterior growing with a strong self esteem. Never think of your job as “work”, only work hard at what you do, so you than can move up the rungs of the ladder known as success, as you not only feel great inside, but it shows on the outside with your true actions, of who you truly are.

Starting out on the ground floor of life, or within our jobs is not a bad thing, nor should it be frowned upon, as it only builds strength, character and helps us grow inside and out, with that little child that is within us all, growing stronger and healthy year after year, as we walk this journey through life. In this country we have what we call the ” American Dream”? This is nothing more than all of us working very hard to achieve great success and when we achieve this great success, we then not only build a strong foundation and grow strong roots, we then accumulate the material things within this society. now sometimes with success we forget of who we truly are? we forget of that little child deep within our souls, which not only leads us to a little child with no true direction,  it will also lead us into a lifestyle of negativity, weakness and laziness, which then makes us vulnerable to all the ugliness we see around us today. With strength come happiness and with happiness comes peace for us all, as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” With strength comes happiness and with happiness comes peace”

” We all want great success along this journey, we also have to work hard to achieve this peace and happiness”

” Work ethnic is within each of us, just that some have refused to unleash the hard work part of the ethnic”

” Work ethnic helps us grow stronger while we greatly respect all that is around us”

 

 

 

 

 

 

As we walk through the valley of life in the shadow of Death………….

“Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.”

James 4:14 ESV

 

We all walk a path through this journey of life, just that no one truly knows of just how long the journey will take us, as  we all walk in our own direction on the path. We will all walk the best way that we know, or do we really know what is best? We of this Society seem to think that our own Individual way is the best way, but yet we have all this hatred, ugliness and crap that surrounds us today, so how do we truly know of the truest way, to walk the path of our choosing, through this journey of life.

The band Kansas has a great song called ” Dust in the wind”, If you truly sit and listen to the words deeply, this is of we the people walking our paths. We are all just dust in the wind of life, we are born into this world no matter of who you are? We live our lives the best that we know how, til that infinite day that we then become like the dust in the wind, of which this journey then ends, leaving us to walk the path of our choosing no more. So the question then lingers, why do we bring so much unwanted crap to each other, if we truly do not know of how long we will be walking this journey of life?

To some they are lucky enough to be walking this journey for a very long time, while for others, their journey gets cut short for whatever reason? Some may get struck by a terrible accident, some may get a terrible disease where there is no way out of it, some…………. For some strange reason have their lives cut short, even if they do it right and they are completely healthy? While most of the so called chosen ones get to walk this journey for a very long time? There is no rhyme or reason to all this, for the only one that truly knows is God with his son Jesus, for which the rest of us may find the true answer at judgment day, when we meet Jesus at the gates of Heaven.

Just as this quote says, we do not truly know what tomorrow will bring, for each day we wake is a new day, with a different trek along the journey, especially if that trek brings us deep pain and hurt, which has us dread each day that we wake. The pain and hurt could be a  wide range of things? Maybe it consists of deep physical pain from injuries that have hurt us? Maybe the pain could be a deep psychological mental pain that becomes deep within our hearts and souls? We all go through these types of pain and hurt at some point along the journey, but if we don’t look deeply into what pains us so, for us to truly fix the pains of this journey and not bring the pains in a complaining way to the rest who walk a journey, then just maybe we can end all the hatred and ugliness around us, so we all can walk our paths of this journey in the peace and happiness, that God had envisioned, when he created us all for this journey of life.

What is your life? Sounds like a game show theme I know, but really how truthfully can we all answer that question? There is so much change that surrounds us all throughout our paths of this journey, that for some they may never have a truthful answer to that question. For the ones who think you have the answer to this question, stop…………. Really look deeply into the life that you created along this journey, did you actually walk this journey as Jesus taught us, when he came and walked his journey here with us? Was your journey truly 100% out of the love and empathy deep within your soul, for yourself and those around you? You may have walked a good journey to the best of your knowledge, but was the journey truly great from the start to the finish of the journey walked? The only way we will truly know is at judgment day, when we meet Jesus at the gates of Heaven.

As the mist of the rain disappears for the sunshine and clear skies,  so do we as we walk our paths of this journey through life, into the sunset of the journey. We have all heard the term of, ” live life to the fullest”? What exactly does this mean? We all have our own meaning for this along our own paths, but do we truly live our lives to the fullest? Living life to the fullest is not about having all the money, it’s not about having more material things than those around you, it is all about living your life faithfully and believing totally in yourself, plus having complete faith and belief in Jesus Christ, while you not only feel deeply his love within you, but you share that love with who is around you along this journey, so we than can truly walk our paths of this journey, in the peace and happiness we all so deserve. We truly do not need all we have today and Jesus proved that to us along his journey, as he walked his path with just the clothes on his back, with the total faith and belief in his father, our God, who provided him with what he needed to walk a successful journey. Within today’s Society we get so caught up within, it is very easy to get off track, lose sight of the true journey, lose the true faith and belief in not only ourselves, but in Jesus Christ as well. When we are off the true track of life, our thoughts then become lost in the clouds of our judgments, which then has us wander aimlessly, instead of walking with confidence along our paths of this journey. It is never too late to get back on track of the journey and Jesus will always forgive us for whatever we have done, but the ultimate forgiveness, is the forgiveness of ourselves, so we than can truly get back on track to walk our paths of this journey, within the peace and happiness we all so truly strive for everyday of our lives.

 

” Forgiveness of ourselves is the true key of happiness throughout this journey, to reach the true peace of a journey well walked”

” Dust in the wind……… A great way to explain this journey, as we are the dust that gets blown around the lives we walk”

” We all have love and empathy deep within us, we just have to truly feel it, so we than can share it with each other”

” the journey could be long, it could be short, we may only find the true answer as we meet Jesus at judgment day within the gates of Heaven”
