” There shall be no night there,…… And they shall reign forever and ever”

Revelation 22:5

Hope for today:

” We can not cling to the success or failures of the past, each new day brings a new opportunity to live for Christ, to share his gospel and to build his kingdom, let’s be about our Father’s business”

Billy Graham

 

 

Now if we all took the Robin Williams approach to walking our paths through this journey of life, then just maybe this society would be a lot better for all? This was a man…… Who was hurting real pain deep inside himself, but yet had decided to through his humor, make the rest of us forget about the pain within us all. Robin Williams was blessed with the talent to truly entertain us all, whether it was comedy, or a movie like ” Dead Poet’s Society”, which for me was the best of all his movies. Robin Williams was truly sent from God for the benefit of us all, as he entertained us ( while he himself hurt deeply inside), so the rest of us can find relief from our pain, even if it was for a short time.

It is so sad that, we of this Society will go to any length to bring so much pain toward each other, that we as an Individual have lost totally the true feelings of, love and empathy that is within us all. When one fails at attempting something they are not used to, others will make fun of those failures instead of praising him to keep trying, which leads to many that will always quit, or never even try to make an attempt at something new. Then there are those that are very talented to play a sport, as they then turn professional and receive huge money to simply play a game.

Life within the National Football League is so screwed up today, simply because………. One has started a new thing of, taking a knee in protest, while disrespecting not just a song, not just a flag, but those who have died defending that flag, so the rest of us can live peacefully and as free as we want to be, doing whatever we want to do. Now with that said………. Through the whole off season of the NFL, there was not one Knee taker doing anything about whatever they were protesting to begin with, but now as the first pre-season  game has been played, they start back at taking a knee? The Quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys said it best, ” Football is not the time or the place for anything, other than playing the game of Football”, I agree totally and now have much more respect for Zak Prescott.

Most of us all stop what we normally do on Sunday’s, to watch the game of football the game, not the game of football being a politically ridden agenda, of whatever the flavor of the week may be for their protests. Let’s look deeper and put it a little different, we all go to our jobs each day, we work for a corporate company correct? What would happen to us if we decide to stand on a soap box and bring protest to our jobs? Correct……… We would be fired for not doing our job as we should be doing, well an NFL team is owned by an owner and that Owner buys the team for one thing and that is to make good on his investment, so in essence the NFL team is a corporate company, that pays it’s employee’s to do a job and not stand on, or take a knee in protest. Football is a game of strategy with the best strategy winning the game, football is not a game of protest and nor do the fans watch the game just for the protest, we watch to see a great game of different strategies, being played by not just an employee of a team, but a well trained and talented athlete, that’s true focus is on winning the game and nothing more, which to me there is one more focused on winning a game, each and every game, he has proved it more than once and that Athlete is, the quarterback of the New England Patriots………. Tom Brady.

There may be some that call Tom Brady a ” cheater”? Really!!! Then I shall call you fat, dumb and stupid, simply because you are too lazy to put in the work each and every day as Tom Brady does, to be the best at whatever it is you do. Whether off season or in season, Tom works very hard every day, so he can be as good as he needs to be and his winning ways proves just that. My challenge to all those who feel the need to protest within the NFL is, try working as hard as Tom Brady, focus 100% on the game of football, so just maybe you can be a true Champion, as the G.O.A.T of the NFL…….. Tom Brady already is, forget about the outside crap ( only to be done on your time…not company time), So not just you and your team play a great game of football, but we the fans, can watch a very well played, with very different strategies to winning a well played game, by well trained and talented athlete’s, each and every week of the season.

 

” Any professional sport is not about any kind of outside protest, as it is about showcasing the God given talent you have been given”

” You are an employee of the owner of the team you play for, there is a code of conduct for each corporate company you work for”

” Any success or failure we may have will be in our past, we can learn from the past, but never shall we dwell in the past as it only brings more pain to us all”

” We all have a God given talent and it is up to each of us to find that talent”

The Beauty of the Trail

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

All trails are unique to each other, each trail tells a story if you look deeply into them and when you truly listen to them, then you shall see the true beauty of the trail. Some may hike a trail to the summit of the mountain, just to reach the summit, take a ” Selfie” on the summit, then post to their social media platforms, showing others of their hike. This is fine, but………. But your missing the big picture and not truly listening to what the trail is saying to you.

The mountain trails have a lot to say if you really listen to them as you trek along the trails of the mountains. From the mountain streams you cross, to all the different plant life and the animals all around you, some of what you may never see  along the normal 9 to 5 of the usual path through the journey of life. We become so fast paced within our regular daily events, that we never take the time to actually look deeply into what we see, just as a long the trail of the mountains, when we just hike too post to our social media platforms, we totally miss out on all the true beauty that is around us along the trail.

Some may not have the desire to hike a mountain, or may look at it as too much work to climb to the summit? That is fine there are plenty of Nature trails that are easier and still offer you the chance to get outdoors, to truly enjoy ” The beauty of the trail”. Some of the mountain trails can and will show you of just how out of shape you are, these trails will totally test your physical ability, as well as your mental structure, but the reward of the beautiful view at the summit, will have you in awe of the trail you just hiked, plus when you truly looked deeply at all that was around you as you hiked the trail, now you can totally feel the peace and serenity that is within you, with a huge feeling of accomplishment.

The beauty of the trail will captivate you, when you truly listen to what the trail is saying to you, it will have you think less of the work of reaching the summit and think more of taking in the true beauty all around you. The problem within this Society, especially within the big cities, is that we never take the time to enjoy anything around us, let alone………….taking in the true beauty of all that is around us. We get so caught up in all the hatred and ugliness of today, that we then forget of who we truly are, we forget there is more to this journey of life than what we see everyday, it is also true that we get so consumed within the everyday life, that we then become someone we are not, whether of our own doing, or of the doing from someone around us? Which then we either become a Victim or help create other Victims of today and through all this we objectify others around us, instead of looking deeply into them, to see that………..yes we are are equal to each other, just unique in our own way. The true empathy and love is within us all deep within our souls, just that we bury it so deep within, that we can not truly feel it as we should, so we than can spread it among each other, as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

The beauty of the trail can and will have us look deeper into what is around us, not just too see the beauty on the trail, but to see all the beauty around us, whether we are on the trail, or walking our paths of this journey. The beauty of the trail is magical and can transform you into, being true to who you are, while you look deeply into all that is around you, while it brings you closer to reality, instead of further away from reality, as walking the streets of society will do. We all walk a path through this journey of life, let’s do it correctly so we than can experience true peace and happiness always.

 

” The beauty of the trail is magical and can transform you back to being of truly who you are”

” Just as we are unique to each other, so are the mountain trails, full of true beauty always”

” The mountain trail are alive and will talk to you if you look deeply into all that is around them”

” Life within the society can change you into being someone you truly are not, as life on the trail will bring you back to being who you truly are”

 

 

 

 

 

With the right focus, comes true perspective

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

Perspective and focus go hand in hand, one without the other will have you walk aimlessly throughout this journey of life, without being able to truly find your true purpose of this journey. Just as in this picture, when you focus on one thing, the rest become cloudy and out of focus, when you focus on what’s down the road, then what’s in the foreground becomes cloudy and out of focus and vice versa. As much as we would like to have it all, you clearly can not, we can achieve many things throughout this journey, but to have it all now and right before us at this time, will just never happen all at once. Everything in moderation, so we can set the proper goals for ourselves, then as we achieve these goals, we than can move forward, not just onto the next goal, but move forward full of confidence, that helps us feel good deep within our souls for a journey well walked.

To have a clear perspective and be in focus as we walk this journey through life, is kind of like walking on a balance beam, where there is this narrow beam that you need to walk across, while you not only put one foot in front of the other, but you focus on what is in front of you, so you don’t fall off the beam. When your perspective doesn’t match up to your focus, now there is a whole host of issues that can come from that, which then forces you to become out of focus for what you need, as you trip and fall over your own feet, trying to put them one step at a time in front of you. Being out of focus and losing perspective of what is important to you, not only will have you walking through the clouds of your judgments, but will also have you become someone for who you truly are not, then you can lose sight of the true journey of the path you walk, throughout this thing called life.

When taking a picture with a camera, there is a process to follow before you actually snap the button to take the picture. You want to make sure that everything is in focus, so the perspective of the picture comes out as crystal clear as you can make it. The theory is so much the same as we walk our paths through this journey of life. It is not just the putting the one foot in front of the other, you first have to focus on where your putting that foot to take the step and each step moving forward, so we then don’t trip and fall disrupting us from walking further. It is totally okay to stop from time to time, so you can look further down the path of your perspective, so you than can keep in focus of what is right in front of you, you don’t need to rush as there is no time limit along this journey of life, simply because if you walk your path out of focus, then you will miss a lot of great stuff, that can make you better and stronger moving forward.

When you don’t take the time to focus as you walk your path of this journey, you will never find the true perspective of the journey. Within this Society and especially within all the big cities, there are so many walking aimlessly, that they clearly are out of focus within the path that they walk. The big cities are so fast paced it makes it very difficult to truly look deeply into what you see, as those that live out of the cities in a more relaxed setting, actually can see more clearly along their path, that is simply because they take the time to focus on what is in front of them as they take each step, which then gives them a better perspective of this journey through life. This journey is really not that difficult when you do it correctly, stay in focus of where you are going, so then the perspective of the journey will help you become better and stronger as you walk your path. Now I get the fact that some of our issues that come to us, are out of our control and are forced on to us from another, but when we stay in focus and keep the perspective of what is in front of us, then we can fix what we need to fix, to move forward along the journey and not move backwards, out of focus with no perspective. With good focus and keeping perspective along our paths of this journey, we now can walk with confidence, as peace and happiness surround us with each step, of a journey well walked.

 

” Focused and perspective go hand in hand, when you lose perspective you then become out of focus moving forward”

” Having good balance not just in sports but in life, will, help keep your perspective and focus to keep moving forward”

” We all need to take better pictures to keep us in focus of the perspective moving forward to be better and stronger in all we do”

” Taking the time to look deeply into what you see, will help greatly putting one foot in front of the other, to have good focus with a perspective moving forward throughout the journey”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Mountains are calling……….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

To those who have never trekked upon any mountain, let alone mountains that stand tall before them. When climbing any mountain you first have to be prepared for any weather changes that mat occur, then there is the terrain whether rocky, muddy, degree of steepness, or fallen trees in your way, you need a good pair of hiking boots, as they will provide support, as well as give a good grip for all the different terrain you may encounter. Hiking up mountains like in this picture, isn’t just slapping on a pair of sneakers and running up a trail, you first have to study the trail on a map so you don’t get lost along the trail, what would happen if the markers of the trail are not there, as they may have been knocked down during a storm or for whatever reason? You need an idea of how to navigate on the trail and a compass in the pack is a good tool for all Hikers.

We may hike any mountain simply because it is there? But for some we hike that mountain, to look deeply into what we see. Mountains have a way about them, that changes us as we trek to their summits. We start along the trail with one mind set or attitude about us, but as the trail dictates to us, we then change our demeanor, change the way we think of the mountain, look deeply into what we see, so we than can see all the true beauty of the mountain. There are no two mountains alike, each mountain is unique just as we are unique to each other and each mountain has a tale to tell, we just have to look deeply into what we see and not just climb the mountain because it is there.

The tale of the mountain begins at the beginning of the trail, with the different plant life, the different animals you may encounter, as they call the mountain their home, then along the trail and as it to changes from under our feet with the degree of steepness or maybe the width, with a good drop right next too us. plus as we get closer to the summit, now everything still changes, especially how all the trees are getting smaller as we climb. The vegetation OH!!! so delicate, becomes very different and if you step off the trail and kill, the vegetation it now dies and takes hundreds of years to grow back. Now as you reach the final push to the summit, you find the rest of the trek all rock with the trees as big as a small plant, you are now above tree line, leaving you susceptible to all the weather that the mountain endures, not too mention, you are out in the wide open with no cover to seek.  The mountain has many tales as you trek up it’s trails, with your feet feeling the heartbeat of the mountain with each step. In some ways the journey to the summit of the mountain, is similar to the journey of life, you walk a trail within both, you endure many changes along the trails, when you don’t respect the trail like life, now you have some crap to get through, but when you walk the trail in life the right way, it will reward you greatly, just like the reaching the summit of the mountain, with the great views, that wait for you to enjoy the peace and happiness, of a trail well blazed.

 

” The mountain is calling, you simply just look deeply into what you see, to truly understand what the mountain is telling”

” Hiking up a mountain is more than just physical exercise, it is true exercise for the mind, body and soul as well”

” Mountains will have an effect on all who trek them, that’s why there are many changes along the trail of the mountain”

” There are many rewards that come to us along this journey of life, but the reward of reaching the summit of any mountain, will take your breathe away with it’s beauty”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The longest day……… 6/6/1944

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

The water’s are calm now, but back over 70 years ago, we owe a huge debt to the men and woman, who fought the good fight, with many not making it past that day. These men and woman should never be forgotten, as if it weren’t for them, we of this Society may not be free to roam as we do today? This country just might of been a bit different today if it wasn’t for these brave hero’s of that time. These men and woman didn’t ask for this fight, but yet they showed up and fought the good fight, simply because it was the right thing to do, for all who walk a path through this journey of life, on the soil of the great country called, the United States of America.

The men and woman of our Armed Services sign up and become trained to help keep America great, they may not receive big money unlike those within the world of sports today, but these men and woman most definitely earned every penny they earn. The actions of our men and woman of the military goes without saying, as the actions of some of the men and woman within the world of sports………….. Well let’s just say, could be a bit more respectful for the ones who fought the good fight, so they can earn the big bucks, playing a game that they love. These men and woman of our Armed services just do not get enough respect for what they do, or have done, some go off away from their families for long stretches of time and some either don’t make it back, or come back back within a casket, or even worse……….. Missing parts of their bodies. While those within the world of sports cry over a hang nail, or whine over an official making a bad call, really!!! We of this Society are to blame for this, simply because we have lost our way along this journey and have mislabeled our priorities, from what we think is important, to what should be important.

We of this Society have changed so much compared to the Society back some 70+ years and a lot of ways, we have changed for the worse, taking big steps backwards, instead of moving forward, like those of our military’s past, present and future. The most political of all the wars……… Vietnam, these men and woman went and fought the good fight, even though they may not have agreed with the decisions of them being there, but yet still fought bravely, then they came back to American soil and are treated like low class citizens and some even being homeless, with no place to sleep or eat like those of us today within our homes, only shows just how screwed up we have become, while we live our lives today.

These men and woman of our military and how they get trained, are so disciplined, they think nothing of going to battle, so we can be free to roam and live our exotic lifestyles, we owe them a great deal of gratitude, but how do we pay them back? By some within the world of sports taking a knee, instead of standing tall and proud, showing great respect for them, as our countries National Anthem is being played before each sporting event. Those within the the world of sports just might not be playing for the big money that they get, if it wasn’t for these brave men and woman, these are the real Hero’s and not, the ones within the world of sports.

Respect is a two way street and there is no sign that reads ” one way” on any of the streets of Respect, those within our military don’t join to get our Respect, but with their actions they earn our Respect in many ways. While those within the world of sports think that they deserve our Respect, even without doing a dam thing, or worse, doing things that are just plain and simply stupid and uncalled for. Those within the world of sports think, that because they get paid big bucks, that they are better than the rest of us? They think that because of their big money, they can use their playing fields as a platform to Preach to the rest of us? I got a news flash for all you within the sports world, you are an employee of the game you play, just like the rest of us are an employee of the company for which we work our jobs. While you are an employee you have to abide by the rules and regulations of that company,  we all have to answer to somebody and there is no other way around it. Now you can have your opinion yes, we all have our opinions, but never forget that we all have the right to our opinions and no one can take that from us, no matter of who you are.

Those within the world of sports think that it is their right to go visit the President after they have won a championship in the sport they play? I have another news flash for you, going to visit the President is not your right, it is a privilege and an Honor, if you think other wise, then you need to rethink your way of thinking. Now you within the sports world may not like the President for whatever reason, just as many of us have our likes and dislikes, but to disrespect a sitting President, is just as bad as, disrespecting our men and woman of our armed services, as you take a knee, during the playing of this countries national Anthem, maybe we all within this country should boycott the sport you play, so you then lose that big paycheck, leaving you with no platform for which to speak? We all walk a path through this journey of life, when we walk it correctly without stepping upon another’s shine, this journey will reward us with great things, it will bring us each much respect even when we don’t go looking for it, but when we preach to other’s and demand their respect, now your looking at a journey that becomes very rough, that can bring much pain and hurt, for which will affect us all and keep us from enjoying true peace and happiness throughout the journey.

 

” America’s military are the real true Hero’s within this country and should have all our Respect for what they do for us”

” The water is calm compared to the day of 6/6/1944, but these men and woman of this day have earned our Respect now and forever”

” Sports and politics do not mix, now get back to playing the game that you get paid greatly to play”

” Those within our military may not get paid big money for what they do, but their actions get rewarded with our respect”

 

 

 

 

 

A true Journalist need not Fabricate…….

See the source image

 

This is the face of ” Fake news”. Ron Borges has been suspended for a story he fabricated, of New England Patriots Quarter back Tom Brady, he basically says that Brady is going to hold out on the Patriots for more money, after his under study Jimmy Garappolo gets paid a big contract with his new team? He also says Tom is jealous…………. I got news for you Mr. Borges, Brady is doing just fine and playing a game for which he loves.  Borges is not alone, as there are many more like him out there, just that they are smarter with it and haven’t been outed yet?

A true Writer needs not to fabricate a story, a Writer is a type of person that, when they get a thought, they simply let the thought, translate from the fingers, onto the keyboard. A true Writer is an Artist that knows just how to create, using the spoken word, without bringing even more, of the unnecessary Drama, that is already around, this broken Society. Good Writer’s will write a story and totally captivate their audience, if a Writer needs to fabricate, then they are not true Writer’s and all they are, is a person that only robs the rest of us from, our hard earned money, then they keep moving forward with their fabrications.

The problem with these kind of Writer’s is, they have been getting away with this Fake writing for way too long and as President Trump is totally outing them, for who they truly are. Ever since President Trump been in office, he has exposed all this corruption and the Fake news has no answer, for who they have become, so they keep trying to sweep the error of their ways under the rug, while we the people become smarter and the publications actually doing as they should and outing these thieves from robbing us further.

To be a great writer is not just about making big money, as it is totally about not just captivating your Audience, but the true feeling deep within your soul, when you write a true story, that touches many, throughout all the paths of this journey of life. Good writing is more about reality and less about being fake or something you truly are not, that’s the problem of this Society, we try so hard to become something we truly are not, that we totally forget what true reality is anymore. Just because you don’t like someone for all the success they have had, or maybe the person you voted for didn’t get voted into the office of their choice, that is no reason to fabricate a story about them, this will only make yourself look even dumber in the long run, as eventually everything will catch up and fry your A$$, with Karma taking a big chunk out as well.

The truth is, you don’t really need a platform to write, you just need a computer and internet connection, then as you write good honest and truthful writings, your audience will come and be captivated by your every word. Then as your audience learns of the great words you create, they will then keep coming back and hanging on your every word.

 

” A good writer will write to captivate, a bad writer will write to be fake and create more and more drama”

” A platform is to stand on to seem taller than you are, not too try to have your opinion seem bigger than the rest”

” Fake news is to drama, as telling the truth is all about reality”

” When you write from the heart there is no need to fabricate anything”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The real sporting news……….

Slide 4 of 12: MINNEAPOLIS, MN - FEBRUARY 04: Rob Gronkowski #87 and Tom Brady #12 of the New England Patriots celebrate their 4-yard touchdown pass during the fourth quarter against the Philadelphia Eagles  in Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium on February 4, 2018 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

 

Last nights Superbowl between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles, one team over the last couple decades  being the giant and the other team being David and the under dog. Just like as David slew the giant in the Bible, the underdog team the Eagles, took the best shots of the Patriots and slew them to win their first Championship in team history. Now with Tom Brady going over 500 yards, three touchdowns and no picks, that alone if I didn’t see the game, would think the Pats have won yet again? But David……….aka the Eagles stood tall and with a great game plan, slew the patriots and is now the Superbowl Champions.

There will be a lot of story lines coming out of this one, with the sports Journalists trying to spin their takes of the game, but no matter how you slice it, or in this case write it, it was a great offensive football game by both teams, with their defenses being knocked around, like the tumbleweeds within the desert. The game ended as I thought it may, with someone on the defensive side, coming up with a big play and that play came from the Eagles, with the strip sack of the G. O. A. T. Tom Brady. This only proves that you are only as good as your last game and like in any sport, when you have a great game plan and execute that game plan, step up to the plate, then you also can become a champion of whatever sport you play.

The legacy of Tom Brady and Bill Belichek should not be tarnished in any way, shape or form, simply because the Eagles stepped up to the plate with a great game plan and beat a Champion, in a one game take all match, which then proves beyond all doubt, that anybody can be beaten, on any given day. What most people tend to forget is, your legacy isn’t built from just one game, it is built from many games, many accolades through the many games and the Championships you win along the way. Brady and Belichek have done just that and deserve the respect for which they get, but unfortunately in the Politically correct world for which we live, we have all become lazy and do not want to put in the work, like Brady and Belichek have done to get to this point in their career.  Then you have the so called Media, the true cockroaches of the world, that will spin around the spoken word, so they can print them as their own, to fit within their agendas and even worse, create more unnecessary drama, then what is already around us now.

The Philadelphia Eagles not only had a great game plan, executed that plan, but they also stepped up to the plate and beat a true Champion in the sport of football. You could tell they worked hard all year in practice, so on game day they could execute the game plan they worked hard on in practice. Talk is cheap and action speaks much louder, so like the patriots have been doing all these years, the Eagles did yesterday and with that, are now the Superbowl Champions within the world of football. Congrats to the Philadelphia Eagles on their Superbowl win, as now the hardest part is about to hit you and that is, to repeat and keep winning for as long as the Patriots, which then builds a legacy of great football, great practice, showing less chatter with more action and becoming the best you can be, each and every game day moving forward.

 

” Talk is cheap and actions speaks much louder, whether you are in the game of football, or you are in the game of life”

” David and the giant may be a Biblical story, but it is a story that when you truly believe, builds character and strength”

” Create a game plan then work that plan and with more action less chatter, makes for a successful game plan”

” The game of football is the chess game of life and with the right game plan, we all can experience being a true champion”
