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”

The colors of Autumn soon to be upon us once again

Autumn Leaves           The cool brisk mornings, that give way to the warmth of the afternoon air. This is what Autumn is all about, also with the bright colors of the leaves that are changing their colors, then fall to the ground and strip the trees bare, With all the bright vibrant colors of the leaves, mixed with a beautiful sunrise over the landscape, now your talking of a beauty that even a picture can’t capture just how beautiful it really is. The rays of the morning sun reflecting off of the dew on the green grass of the meadow, the bright rays of the sun bouncing from one colored leaf to the next and as the sun moves up away from the distant mountains, warms the air of the cool brisk mornings.

The season of fall, also known as Autumn. Truly is the best season of all four of the seasons. With fall all the plant life begins their exhaling process and gets ready for the cold of the winter, as in the spring the plant life does their inhaling process, to get ready for the summer season. The exhaling of the tree’s is what gives us the beauty of the bright colors of the leaves, plus it gives the tree’s time to ready themselves for the deep cold of the winter months. Yes most of us don’t like the season of winter, cause within this season we see nothing but the work of removing the snow that may fall and the deep cold that has us layer up to keep warm. When you look beyond the work and the layering up, truly see the winter for what it is, now you can see all the beauty that winter brings as well, okay maybe not the bright colors of fall.

The season of fall also brings a crispness to the air and a time for us to enjoy and unwind, like going to a real Country fair, that highlights all the Agriculture and what it takes for the Farmer to cultivate all the Agriculture. It is also maple syrup season, as the sap flows steadily out of the maple tree’s, there is nothing like fresh maple syrup and I especially like the maple sugar candy also. If your a sport’s fanatic than it is also the start of Football and Hockey season, to me the only two sports that matter of all the sports. There is a whole lot more to the season of fall, other than thinking of the winter, that is right around the corner.

With the season of fall we also have to turn the clocks back one hour, this gives us less sunlight and what makes winter seem longer than it really is, but come spring that hour gets returned and we can have longer days to enjoy outside. The winter months may have shorter days, but this is no reason to stay inside without enjoying the outside air. With each season there is plenty beauty that goes with them, you just have to go out and explore, to see all the true beauty around you. For me it is the fall that is the best season, as others have their favorite season for them to enjoy? The fall may be looked at as an ending, cause all the leaves fall off the tree’s and plant life seems to die for the winter, but if you can see a new beginning from all the endings, than the fall will never be looked at as an ending, only the start of a new beginning, for everything that may breathe the air, that this planet of Earth provides for us all.

” there are four seasons within a year on the calender, we each have our favorite season that makes us the happiest on our journey through life”

” we may lose an hour on the clock of time in the fall, but if you truly see all the beauty around you, you never notice the difference in time”

” the crisp cool morning air of the fall, gives way to the warmth of the afternoon sunlight for us to enjoy”

The 2014/15 Boston Bruins……

With the 2014 season in the rear view mirror, time to seriously look at this team, as the playoffs loom a short journey away for this year, last year was a great ride for all the players, coaches, management and the true Bruin fan, that is always behind the team win, lose, or draw, winning that covenant President’s trophy shows not only how good a team you were, but is a great reward for all the hard work throughout the season and yes this team worked hard while showing other teams, that they are a difficult win for them.

I have been a true fan of the spoked “B” pretty much my whole life, I to was influenced to play the game from a guy named Bobby Orr, when all of New England opened new rinks to handle the huge draw of young children wanting to play the game, Bobby Orr wasn’t just a great hockey player, he changed the game moving forward into the future, the famous words of “Sanderson to Orr”, then Orr flying through the air as he put in the game winner and the famous, ” do you believe in miracles” from the 1980 USA Olympic hockey team, will always be etched in my brain, to me the two best quotes in sports, well……. now I have a third with the late Stuart Scott of ESPN saying at the Espy’s, ” you beat cancer by how you live, why you live and in the manner of which you live”.  Stuart Scott was an inspiration while he was fighting the ugly disease of cancer, now his inspiration will live on through the rest of us, as we move forward on our paths of our journey of life.

This season’s Boston Bruins have been like a huge roller coaster ride, with more downs than there are ups, to me a big part of it has to do with injuries at the beginning of the season to key player’s and key core players at that, then the trades of Boychuk and Thorton,  not to mention of Ference when he was let go to Edmonton, these three guys were part of the core of this team, now they may not have been the most talented, but what they brought to the team was Identity and Identity is something no player anywhere can bring back, the Identity I am talking about is, team first on and off the ice, like a family and having each others backs, when you have 22 guys (including the goalies) taking the ice every game as one, with no I am better than you attitudes, now you have a team that plays together, a team that it doesn’t matter who scores, just that they score one more than the other team to win the game, this makes for a very difficult team to defend, by any team that they may be up against, this was the Identity of the team last season and this is whats missing from this seasons Boston Bruins, they had this in 2011 as well and yes they won Lords Stanley cup that year, can this team rekindle this? You bet they can, they just have to have others step up, much like Ference did with the Jacket through the playoffs, when they won the cup.

This seasons Bruins have lost their team Identity and because of this some of the core players have lost their Identity of who they are, a guy like Milan Lucic who is the best power forward in the game and when he skates, hustles, be physical and gets to the net, good things happen, plus when he does this the rest of the team feeds off this energy and the team picks up their energy, Chara and Seidenberg are known as the best shut down pair of defense man in the league, but they both haven’t been close to years past, the best move the Bruins made was trading Joe Thorton and building a team around Patrice Bergeron, as Bergy is the best two way player in the game and this season still holds true for him and his number will be the next to the rafters of the Garden, you also have an awesome goaltender in Rask, he has played like a World class goalie, but since he was awarded with the big contract, he hasn’t lived up to that contract yet? Lets not forget the Coach in Claude Julien, who in my mind is the best Bruins Coach of my lifetime and would put him next to Bill Belichek as the best Coaches for Boston teams in my lifetime so far? Claude’s style is defense first and keep everything to the outside, not allowing anything up the middle of the ice, controlling of the neutral zone and letting your goalie see all the shots, it takes all the players of the team to buy into this system and when they all buy in, now you have a winning combination.

This seasons Boston Bruins will always bleed black and gold for me, can they turn this around and make a run in the playoffs? you betcha they can, they just need to all buy into Claude’s system like years past, the core of this team to play like they can, while setting a winning example for the new members of this team and re-claiming the Identity, that makes them a very hard team for any team to play against, plus they need Marchand to play better and stop taking dumb penalties that hurt the team, I know it’s part of his game to get into the heads of other players on the other team, but he needs to tone that down, play smarter and let his skill dictate his game and not his reputation like it is now, someone on this team if they haven’t done it yet, needs to step up like an Andrew Ference and bring this team together like a family, maybe another jacket to pass around at the end of each game, so each member of the team recognizes each other as not just a team, but a family on and off the ice.

” The Boston Bruins bleed black and gold, like a family on and off the ice”

” The Boston Bruins are to hockey, what the New England Patriots are to football”
