Bright colors with the shorten days

The brisk days of Autumn so welcome from the summers heat,

As the days get colder the light of day becomes shorter,

The morning dew eventually gives way to the morning frost,

as the colors of the leaves get so vibrantly bright upon the tree’s,

The red’s the yellow’s mixed so beautifully with the evergreens,

Let’s not forget the the white of the Birch tree’s,

Autumn is definitely the most picturesque of the seasons,

With Autumn comes the exhaling of the tree’s,

to get ready for the long cold of the winter months,

As the tree’s exhale the air gets chilly with us in sweater’s,

Plus with the exhaling the leaves get crisp…………..which,

Eventually has the leaves leave the comfort and warmth of the tree,

Only to fall to the ground as the tree then goes into hibernation,

A tree with no leaves may look very bare,

as the tree still has some life deep within that woody exterior,

To some they may call Autumn fall? There really is no difference,

It is the same time of year within the same season and,

right before winter then right after summer.

Autumn may follow summer  but is the pre-curser to winter,

The cool brisk days of Autumn gets us ready for the cold of the winter,

As we ourselves get consumed with cabin fever,

From the staying within the walls of our homes,

Instead of stepping outside surrounded by Mother Nature,

Which then gets us excited for the season of Spring.

 

” The four seasons of the calendar, will have us always survive through one to get to all the others”

” Cooler days brings bright vibrant leaves within the crisp air that exhales”

” With the tree’s being bare, leads to Mother Nature covering them with the white winter blanket”

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”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An Anniversary of Good versus Evil

 

 

 

” May the sun always shine on the Boston Marathon, the sun showing good with no evil present”

 

Despite the weather, this day of the Boston marathon will always be more than just a competition of running. Five years ago two Brothers decided to bring hatred and evil to all that were at the marathon, but quickly found out that, no matter how planned out you thought you were, the good will always win out over any evil. You hear more about the different charities a lot of runners are running for, yes all the runners start out with the same goal and that is to cross the now famous finish line of the Boston Marathon. Some may not finish as their bodies become overwhelmed with exhaustion, some may feel the true warmth of God’s love no matter how cold the weather, when a fellow runner stops and either helps or carries them across the finish line and yes, the true competition may be in the front of the pack, with the ones who want to finish first, but the real competition starts from the middle to the end of the pack, with all the love and empathy showed of each other, not too mention all the charities being run for.

Five years ago there was very ugly tragedy at the finish line of the Boston Marathon but through that tragedy, there has been so much good that has come from it, that it just fills your heart with the warmth of God’s love and willing to share that love with each other. We the people need so badly to realize that, we don’t need evil to find the love, simply because the love is within us all and all we need to do is, just reach down deep within ourselves and truly feel the warmth of the love, then share it with our good and thoughtful actions, instead of letting evil turn us into someone we truly are not.

With the ones who perished five years ago at the marathon, especially one eight year old boy named Martin Richards, who was full of life and with his sign that read, ” no more hurting people…………. Peace” we will never find out, of just how much good could of come from this young innocent boy? Those who perished and those who survived the terrible tragedy, are now victims from the terrible day and that will never change throughout their lives, they can either let the victimization stew within their thoughts throughout the rest of their journey’s, or they can move forwarded better and stronger, by who they truly are from such a terrible tragedy, showing nothing but good and a smile everyday, as they walk their paths throughout this journey of life.

All versions of the media want nothing more than to hold onto all the ugliness and the hatred, as this is what makes them money and keep s them creating all the drama around us, simply because it is their agenda and they don’t want to waiver from it, what the media tends to forget is, they are not as powerful as they think? The real power belongs to us the people, as we are the ones that can turn them off and ignore all that they are about. The problem now is, we have forgotten how to turn them off and we have become too addicted to all the drama around us today. Only if we get back to truly of who we are, then and only then, will we the people not only control who we are, but we then will take back control, of what the media has taken from us, with all their agendas and their fake news/ drama. Let’s get back to looking at events like the Boston marathon with the eyes of good, so then there will be no room at the Inn for any evil of any kind,

It’s too bad that we within this Society think that we need tragedies to see any good, we also make fun of others pains, just to forget our own pain, it doesn’t have to be this way, only if we had more faith in ourselves and in Jesus Christ, if only we made more trips to the house of God, then just maybe all the good will flow from each of us, with no sight of any evil anywhere within our futures. Our destiny’s are not about any evil, our true destiny’s starts within ourselves, as we truly feel the love of God within us and as that love warms us, then we can share that love with each other, instead of showing hatred or attacking one another with much ugliness. We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all start out the same at the beginning, as well as finish the journey the same as well, but what lies within the middle of the journey, lies completely within ourselves and the actions we take and bring to each other. The good versus evil talk lies completely within ourselves and until we get over ourselves and realize this, then we will always have evil to get around, on all our paths of this journey.

 

” The good will always win out over evil, we just have to have complete faith in ourselves as well as in Jesus Christ”

” When you look deeply into what you see, you can clearly see the good with no evil in sight”

” Five years since the terrible tragedy at the Boston marathon, shows just how good always wins over any evil”

” it’s the media that keeps the drama of the tragedies alive with their agendas, time to see clearly through the drama at the reality of our paths through the journey”

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Hidden trail……….

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The Hidden trail within Nature is only hidden if you don’t go out and explore what is around you. As you walk along trails like this, you just don’t know what lurks in your path? The trail is hidden deep within the woods and as you venture out on one trail, you just may come across many more like it, along your journey within Nature.

The wooden trail deep within the woods may scare some to not walking it, as they may not want to become lost in a place they are not familiar with, but that is part of the fun and having a good sense of direction and a knack of looking toward the sky and knowing where to go, as the position of the sun sets your course, this is what’s so intriguing about these kinds of trails, which then when you make it back to your camp site, now you have a sense of accomplishment that makes you feel good about yourself.

While walking along these trails you are within the homes of many animal life and plant life, to see some of these animals and plants you normally do not see, this is the exciting part of the trail, it makes for an interesting walk that has you looking deeply into what you see. Unlike our normal run of the mill walks within our neighborhoods, or maybe a lunch walk at work, it is awesome to get out and explore, just to see things you normally would never see. The biggest problem with this Society is, we don’t get away from our daily grind enough, so we can truly unwind and relax away the stress of the grind, instead we let the grind dictate our actions, which in a lot of cases, has us becoming someone we truly are not.

A nice walk within Nature and along the beauty of a hidden trail, in a lot of ways is better than the therapy you may pay for, as it is a natural type of therapy that soothes the soul and helps you breathe in fresh quality air, now don’t get me wrong it is nice to have someone to talk with to unload some of the daily grind, but it is also good to get out and explore things you normally would never explore, which then has you see what true beauty is and being one with Nature, now you can actually feel the stress of the daily grind, just lift out of your body, leaving you feeling lighter and more relaxed.

The hidden trail may not be that hidden in reality, but to you it is hidden, as it is the first time you have walked this trail, leaving you with a good feeling of accomplishment. Plus the setting up of a camp site, giving you a place to sleep within Nature as well as cook a meal over the open fire and the getting away from the daily grind for a short time, not only does this make you lose the time of day, now you become totally relaxed with the worries of the grind melting away from your brain, leaving you even more relaxed and a feeling like you will never feel, when you are within the daily grind and feeling like a robot that doesn’t stop. There is more to this journey of life than the nine to five daily grind, you just have to go out and find that trail, find that camp site, so you than can be truly of who you are, let the stress leave your body, so you than can be totally relaxed to enjoy your path through this journey of life.

 

” The hidden trail is not so hidden while you walk within it and explore all that is around you”

” A walk within nature is good for the soul and helps you unwind from the daily grind of the nine to fives”

” Go out and explore something new, as you never know what you may see or find, which will help you totally relax and truly be of who you are”

” The beauty of Nature is a great way to find that free therapy, to help you unload the stress to feel lighter and relaxed”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Camping season….a time for peace and serenity

 

With the up coming weather of the next couple days and the amount of snow they are predicting for the North East, right around the corner and waiting for us outdoors type, is the coming of camping season, with all the peace and serenity you need, to clear your head from all the crap and get yourself out from Winter’s coma, so you can get back to being of truly who you are and escaping the daily grind, to refuel and recharge.

With campsites like this and the need of a boat to get to it, you can have all the peace and serenity you need. Stepping out of the tent in the morning and brewing the coffee, as you sit lazily by the water, to listen to the beauty all around you, plus watch and listen to all the animals wake to the morning with you. Listening to the Loons if you have never heard them? Is a beauty of it’s own to listen to. Watching the Eagles fly over head as they look within the water for their morning meal, maybe a Moose coming to the water’s edge, for it’s daily splash, OH!!! and watch out for the Bear also, just stay at a safe distance to watch their daily routine also. This is all the true beauty within Nature, of which you will never see, if you just stay within the city lights.

Some may go to a campsite and say they are camping in their trailers, yes you are in the woods, but you are on wheels and within a campground with others around. The true peace and serenity is camping deep within the woods, where your technology doesn’t work, so you can be one with Nature and the surroundings around you. When you sit by the fire and hear the crackling of the fire and all the sounds of Nature around you, without any people noises interrupting you, now you can truly clear your mind, body and soul from all the crap, then replace it true beauty. Relaxation at it’s finest as you sit within nature deep within the woods, sitting by a crackling fire, while you let all the daily grind and the stress from that grind, flow completely out from your body, so you than can truly refuel and recharge.

Some may say it is too much work to set up all that equipment for a few days, but if you just look at it as fun to get out within Nature, you will never look at it as work, only as, setting up your own personal spot, full of peace and serenity. I know some may complain of the snow that have been predicted for the next couple days, so if you break down each year to within four seasons as it truly is already, then you will find that getting through a season you may not care for, will only be temporary, til the season comes once again that you enjoy tremendously. Camping season for me lasts three of the four seasons, so getting through one season don’t seem as bad, as some would like to think, as for a few short months of snow and cold, will soon enough break, so camping season will be front and center once again.

The Forest, the plant life, the lakes and the streams, the mountains, the cool brisk morning air, giving away to the sunshine of the day, the tent, the camp fire and the setting up of the camp site, now your being one with Nature to unwind and clear your head of all the crap, then you can totally relax your mind, body and soul, so you can truly recharge and refuel, to move forward along your path better and stronger, throughout this journey of life.

 

” Being one with Nature will help you find the true peace and serenity throughout this journey”

” The nature walks, the camp fire and the sounds of nature, just what the doctor ordered, to fix yourself and recharge your batteries”

” Camping inside of a tent is not so bad, especially when you have a cot within the tent”

” The camp fire is not just too keep you warm from the brisk night sky, it is the ambiance of the whole camping experience”

 

The sun sets for another day

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The sets for another day as each day comes to a close for the midnight sky,

The sun lights up the Earth’s sky from so far away as it heats the Galaxy,

We would be in total darkness if it were not for the light of the sun,

We have become so accustomed to the light of the sun each day,

We then would be lost along this journey without it,

As the seasons change so does the light of the sun each day of the seasons,

In comes the Winter with less light and more darkness,

As the Summer brings more light and we enjoy by getting outside,

The sun moves very fast as it spins around us here on the planet Earth,

But as we look up into the sky it looks as if the sun is standing still,

When the sun sets for the midnight sky and if you look deeply into what you see,

You just may see a variety of colors coming from the ray of the sun,

With the more colors you see the more beautiful the sunset sky looks,

With each orbit of the sun it may be very far or it can be very close,

The closer the sun is too us the hotter the day will become,

As the further the sun to us the colder the days become,

We will all flock to our favorite viewing spots for the sunset spectacular,

Even with a bottle of wine with glasses and cheese as we relax under the sunset,

The sun may look plain at first glance it’s true beauty goes deep within,

Just as we at times look battered and beat down, our true beauty is deep within,

There is a lot of true beauty around us and so much more than viewing the sunset,

All we have to do is look deeply into what we see.

 

” The Moon, the Sun, the Earth, there is much beauty deep within each”

” Even a blind man can look deeply into what he see’s as he truly feels all that is around him”

” Life throughout this journey has much beauty within it as we truly look deeply into what we see”

” The warmth and the cold it all depends on how close or far the sun is to you and me”

 

The Northern lights

Nature Hearts

The Northern Lights are a sight that is second to none, as Mother Nature shows you her true beauty. This is what I was hoping to see last night, as I went for a midnight hike up a mountain that is pretty much in my back yard, you can see from the picture, that this phenomenon is a spectacle that is second to none, not even the fourth of July fireworks can touch the beauty of this light show.

The Northern lights or another words known as the Aurora Borealis, these lights form when charged particles form from the sun during a solar flare, then  penetrate the Earth’s magnetic shield and collide with atoms and molecules within our atmosphere. These collisions result in countless little bursts of light, called Photons, which makes up the Aurora. When these charged particles form they stream from the sun at speeds of about one million miles an hour. These lights are most commonly seen from those who live in or visit high latitudes, which makes this a big spectacle for the rest of us, when they do happen in southern latitudes, only because it doesn’t happen all that often.

Mother Nature and the World outside of Earth, has such a pure beauty that unless you pay attention to it, you totally miss out of this beauty, which then has you becoming consumed with all the ugliness of a broken Society. We all today get so caught up in living our lives and making ends meet, that we then totally forget of all that is around us, there is a lot around us then just walking out the door and seeing your neighbor’s house or vehicle, there is a lot more than jumping into your vehicle and driving to work for your weekly check, there is a much bigger World out there, then the World we think we know? Simply go camping within nature, no not within a camper on wheels (which you are only parking not true camping), camp within a tent, deep within the forest of Nature, as you lay in your sleeping bag within your tent, stop and listen to the ground and see what Mother Nature is saying to you. During the day go out for a Nature walk and really pay attention to what is around you, not just what you see, but what you hear as you walk, some may walk in the woods and come back saying that, there is nothing of beauty and nothing that interest them? I say it is because they didn’t truly look deeply into what they were looking at and only saw what they wanted to see and nothing more. There is so much beauty within Mother Nature, each time you journey within it, you will see something totally different each and every time you venture within it.

Just like last night, those that trekked up to the top of the mountain to witness the Northern lights, some came back disappointed because they saw nothing, while some like myself knew there was a chance we wouldn’t see them as the haze rolled in, so I looked even deeper, while I listened to the birds sing, the owls chat, the heat bugs ramble on and even saw a Porcupine along my path. It is not about getting consumed with what the media tells you and then expecting to see what they tell you? It is all about being truly in tune with Mother Earth and understanding totally of how she operates, you can’t get in tune with Mother Earth if you totally rely on the media, as they also ( unless they understand) don’t truly know Mother Earth, you can see one thing in nature one day, the very next day see something totally different, which proves even further of just how beautiful this planet we walk really is. We all walk a path through this journey of life, part of the walking is truly looking deeply into what you see, so you can truly understand and see all the true beauty that is around you.

 

” The northern lights or the Aurora Borealis, are an awesome spectacle to see if you can, one of mother Earth’s true beauty for us to see”

” The most common area to view the northern lights is in a northern latitude place, making those in the southern latitude far and few sightings”

” Get outside and truly see the World around you within Mother Nature and Mother Earth”

” As you walk within Nature, don’t say anything, just open your ears wide and truly listen to everything around you, and it will relax you from the daily grind”
