What is really within the night sky, beyond the Stars

” We are looking for the city, that is to come”

Hebrews 13:14

” Face to face with Christ my Savior,

Face to face what will it be?

When with rapture, I behold him,

Jesus Christ who died for me?

Face to face I shall behold him,

Far beyond the starry sky,

Face to face in all his glory,

I shall see him by and by”

*** Carrie E. Breck***

Without the resurrection of Jesus Christ, we all would have no hope for the future. As the Bible promises, when this journey ends for us, we all will come face to face with Jesus Christ, as now all our questions will be answered with all our sorrows and fears to vanish. Someday when the journey ends for each of us, as no one really knows when our time will be up? We could be here for a short time, or we may be here a very long time? Only Jesus knows as he is the one we meet, at the gates of Heaven and that is the judgment day for us all.

Get out within mother nature, go set up a tent upon the Earth’s floor, chop up some firewood for the campfire and ready the pit for the center piece of camping, better known as the ” campfire”. To set up a tent upon the floor of this Earth and sleep inside the tent, goes a bit deeper than just lying on the ground, now you can actually feel the heartbeat of the Earth. you can be one with mother nature, as now you can listen to all the beautiful songs, that make up the night sky. When you truly open your ears to all the sounds within mother nature, you can hear the snake slither by, the foot steps of the moose, walking by your tent, a bit nervous? Being nervous is only natural, as you then become one with them and now you are as quiet as a bear deep within their hybernation. The peaceful serenity of the nights sky will soothe you, it helps heal you from all the stress, as it melts away from your shoulders. Some may think that sleeping on the ground within a tent is not for them? They really need to try it at least once, to truly experience the real heartbeat, of this planet, so all her beauty can soothe your soul and heal you from all the stress.

Now as the tent is set and ready for you to get a good nights rest, time to ready the fire pit, so you can build a campfire, to sit and relax from the days activities. The pit is ready and you now build the fire with the fruits of your labor, of the wood you chopped from your days chores, the flames are big as they increase the hot coals within, you stare into the fire at the red of the coals and become hypnotized as a warm feeling of relax falls over you. There is nothing like sitting around a firepit within mother nature, you listen to the Owls waking up for their nightly journey, a pack of Coyotes howling to the night sky, as the running water from the stream soothes you so. You sit there not wanting to get up, so you then look up to the moon rising over the horizon in front of you, so now as the light of the moon lights up everything around you, you see the stars within the dark, clear sky.

What is really beyond the stars within the nights sky? Are there other life forms? Is Jesus up there looking down upon us? Even with all the space trips, nobody really knows this answer, but maybe one day, as this journey comes to a close, we will find the answer to all our questions? Maybe God is up there looking down, as Jesus is within us all, with his blood flowing through our hearts and warming us with his love. You stare into the darkness of the sky and into the light of the stars, you see many that take different shapes, the big dipper, little dipper, millions of stars, with some planets as well, that make up the milky way within the nights sky. Now you see this bright light moving swiftly on it’s course, it is the space station flying by and just maybe with some Astronauts within it, writing in their daily journals. There is so much going on within the nights sky, but unless you step out of the city lights and within mother nature, you will never truly see, just how beautiful the nights sky can be. There are also these lights known as the ” northern lights”, the best viewing of these lights is either Iceland, or Fairbanks, Alaska. Yes you may see in other parts, but the best and most beautiful spots are in Iceland and Fairbanks. There is so much within mother nature, makes you wonder just how she keeps it all so prestine and beautiful.

Mother nature seems as if she is everywhere? Maybe God put another in charge of keeping all this beauty for us all? There are so many questions now, but one day we just may find out all the answers to these questions, as just like Jesus came and walked his journey among us, so to did others like Jesus, Abraham, Simon etc… So maybe there will be another like Jesus that will come before us? Will we know who he is? Or will he be a she? Or just maybe, they will blend in without any of us knowng that they are here? This journey has so much and so many questions, hopefully one day, our questions get answered, like our prayers do. Who really answers our prayers? is it Jesus? or is it a sign he places in front of us? maybe he sends others to answer what we pray? They say everything happens for a reason, so we all have to keep an eye for the reason, so maybe alot of the questions we have just might get answered, before we enter into the gates and look Jesus face to face.

Jesus Christ died for us all, so he could go within the resurrection, for we could have hope movinng forward. There is so much to this journey, there are so many questions as well, will we remember them all when we need? No worries, Jesus has it all planned and what our next assignment will be.

Go deeply into the journey of the nights sky,

Go deeply into the woods away from the city lights,

Pitch a tent on the ground to feel the heartbeat of the Earth,

Be one with nature and listen to her beautiful music,

Build a campfire and be hypnotized into relaxation,

Truly let the fire warm your soul as the stress melts away off the shoulders,

Stare into the bright lights of the nights sky,

Gaze deeply into the light of the stars as you see the milky way above,

The sun gives way to the moon and the night sky,

Just so you can see the beauty of the milky way light up the sky,

The northern lights with all its different colors,

So get to one of the two viewing spots to see the beauty,

Jesus Christ died and has risen for us on this journey,

So we can have hope bring us into the path of righteousness,

This journey has so much for us to explore,

so get out within nature and see all you can see.

The road to the future, for what does it truly hold?

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA         You know your getting old when you remember a movie from twenty six years ago as if it was yesterday. The movie was called Back to the future and one of it’s stars was Micheal J Fox, who played the role of Marty McFly. I was twenty five when this movie came out, I remember the date that was put into the famous car and time machine, but if I may be honest, never really thought deeply into this date of 10/21/2015 until today and all the hype being made of this.

As we walk our paths along this journey through life, it’s what we do in the present that determines all our futures, it’s okay to reflect back in time to see what we did wrong, what we did right, so we can make the necessary changes, so we all can make our futures bright and be stronger and better as we move forward. We all have our flaws that we want to forget, as some of these flaws brought great pain whether physical or mentally, also with these flaws we suppress all the pain in order to relieve ourselves from the hurt, we then become someone of which we truly are not. When we have become that stranger to even ourselves, we then look into the mirror one day and say to self, who are you and where did you come from? Yes we all have certain flaws we have suppressed deep within our souls, but what the future truly holds for us then is the fact that, our brains and minds never forget and eventually all comes to a head within the future of all our journeys within our lives.

The movie Back to the Future was a great movie, as I can remember it twenty six years later. it kind of had most of us daydreaming of what does the future truly hold for us and can we really go back in time to change who or what we are now? Now that I am older I can see clearly that the past is the past and the present is what determines my future moving forward.

We all have things in the past we want to change, these things are gone and should not affect us right now in the present, what we should be focusing on is, being truly who we are and not something we truly are not because of some flaw, or a life event that made us into this fake self. When we stay true to who we are, feel the love of God within our hearts and souls, we will then love ourselves more, which will then help us love all those who are around us. With this love of self and those around us, we will then show more empathy and actually care more for each other and all the hate we see everyday, will simply disappear from all our paths along this journey through life. So Happy Back to the Future day and may this day help us all move forward along our journey, while we stay true to who we are, show our love and empathy from within us toward each other, so we all can walk our paths along this journey of life peacefully, as we live in the present to determine our own futures, of being better and stronger moving forward.

” The past does not determine our future, it is what we do in the present that truly determines who, or what we become in the future”

” It’s okay to reflect back on the past to see what went wrong and what went right, so we then can make the necessary changes in the present, as we all have a bright future”

” There are movies and there are movies that we never forget, this is what makes the movie great, or just simply only as good as we remember”

The light of the dark will always shine no matter what time of day.

“We the people of this Society, think of the light being daytime and the dark being the nighttime”.

To truly know what I mean by the dark, you need not look any further than the nightly news, We see daily all the ugliness going on throughout the World, groups like ISIS, all terrorism whether over seas or here domestically, all the tragedies happening to us from the weather patterns and big storms, then there are others throughout Mankind simply killing others just because they didn’t like the way they looked? This is just tiny compared to all the other darkness, that is going on around us everyday.

Darkness is a lot more than the sun going down for the night sky, to see the stars in the sky at night are beautiful, but “when you see stars from the darkness, this is not the darkness anybody wants to see”. When you look through the history of Mankind, we all have been through many of dark times, ” true there is light at the end of the tunnel”, but to see that light through the darkness, we need to stay strong to ourselves, not only believe in ourselves, but truly believe in the Lord God and Jesus, so they can be our guiding light through the darkness and really see that light at the end of the tunnel.

When we turn on the daily news and see all the darkness around us, or even within our communities, this is enough for us to stay within ourselves, not reach out to those in need, put forth a piece of us that doesn’t really show who we really are, just to try to protect ourselves from this darkness. We then move forward while we numb ourselves from everything around us, but as the darkness around us turns into light and happier times and because we numbed ourselves from everything, we then don’t change cause now this darkest of times has brought us a new comfort level, when we get into a comfort zone, it is very difficult to change and get out of one zone and into another.

True change will always make us happier and more peaceful, as we walk our paths along our journey of life. We neglect any kind of change, simply cause we fear the unknown, just like we fear the terrorists cause we don’t know who or where they are around us, or if they will try something the next time I fly? True change goes deep within who really are, it is getting in touch with our true feelings and emotions, showing more empathy and compassion of ourselves, towards all those around us, true change is getting in touch with ourselves and knowing what makes us tick, when something happens to us we know is wrong, we then look at the long term decision of it before we actually act upon it, as we see in the nightly news, nobody thinks of their actions and how they will affect them down the road, instead they take action, then after the fact get into a reactive mode, which only multiplies the problem, instead of being proactive, think through the action before you take the action, so not only make our own lives better, but make better of those around you.

Even through the darkest of times, when you truly believe in yourself as well as God and Jesus, you will always see the light at the end of the tunnel, true we may have to sacrifice something we love, so we can truly change from what we were, to who we really are, we will have to change from being reactive to proactive on our journey of life, yes this change can be tough at times, it may try to make us doubt ourselves? But as we stay true to who we are, be more proactive with strong communications of everything around us, totally believe in God and Jesus, no matter what that may cross our paths, we will always see the light in the darkest of times. Throughout Mankind there is nobody that traveled their journey without seeing this darkness, you just have to stay true to yourself, believe in God and Jesus, so not only we throughout Society, but we ourselves can walk our paths along our journey of life peacefully and become better and stronger no matter what may come across our paths.

” True change makes us better at everything we do, without it we fall short of truly being true to ourselves”

” Even through the darkness the light can shine bright, belief in yourself along with God and Jesus, will never let the light become extinguished”
