Travelin’ On…

Jun
04

Hello everyone, I titled this post “Travelin’ On” however, I do not know entirely what I am going to say on the subject and please let me warn you ahead of time that I may stray away from topic here and there, I just needed a nice little title for the post so I thought that the one above was a perfect fit. You see, it becomes ever more difficult to find inspiration to give inspiration, to be an inspiration!

airplane-wallpaper-3I am often weary from thinking of what to write next even though I try my hardest to keep these posts scheduled way ahead of time so in a sense I am working each day to travel on with this blogging mission that I have taken upon myself, I do enjoy writing and posting what it is that God has given to, and I love reading all the feedback that I get whether it be negative or positive (though the positives always outweigh the negative) I enjoy being able to shed some kind of light in someones darkest hour and I love to bring hope to the world in some way each day that passes us by. Because I know that there are so many who doesn’t feel as though they can continue traveling on, as matter of fact they feel as though they might have hit their limit, ran their last mile, spent their last ounce of strength and lost their last drop of fuel to get them through.

This may be true for some, however, I am here to say otherwise. It’s my job now isn’t it? Otherwise. There, I said it. You heard me, yes that is correct. OTHERWISE. Otherwise what? OK, how about this. What if you haven’t spent your last ounce of strength or your last drop of fuel, what if you are seconds away from a pit stop and if you give up now you will feel so foolish when you could have gone a few more steps ahead and rejuvenated yourself to keep moving on, but instead you gave up because you didn’t think you could go on any further. When in reality, God had otherwise planned, there was a way, there is always a way. We must find a way to make a way to live the way.

Hold On –

Keep holding on no matter what, we know that it is hard, we know that it isn’t easy, we know that things can become tiresome from time to time but we must not forget to keep holding on to our faith, to hope. Because there most certainly is hope, there always is hope my friends, when we least expect it, hope comes around the corner and slaps us in the face with a wake up call and we are amazed at the way things start to turn. Because when we thought about stopping only seconds from a pit stop, we didn’t, we kept going, we got a rejuvenation and went back out there until our next checkpoint and we kept going.

Along the way we may have faced some dark valleys, some mountains and some storms, we may have had to endure freezing temps and brutal heat waves, we may have had to endure slippery slopes and rugged hills that were almost too hard to get over but by the grace of God we made it and we continue to each day.

In Conclusion:

In the words of one of my favorite TV Ministers of all this world, though he’s not a real Minister at all, rather just a Character from one of my favorite TV Shows called “7th Heaven” he most certainly was an amazing Pastor in the show, and though the man that had the honor and privilege to play the role of “Reverend Eric Camden” has recently had some bad stuff come upon him from some awful things he did in the past. The Character is still the character and the character is amazing.

“You live, you learn, you learn to cope.” – Reverend Eric Camden

And that is so true, in this life we all go through hard times in the struggle we pray for a life line, needing someone to show us the way but we’ve got to have faith. We must continuously grow stronger in our faith each day, because God is our mighty defender.

Thank you for all who have read, may it have blessed you in some way. (Rev. Camden’s quote may have been slightly paraphrased for the sake of not being able to find the actual quote and not being able to remember it fully)

I Dream Of..

Apr
17

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, whatever time it is wherever you are and whoever you are I would just like to take this moment now to introduce you to my humble abode of the web.

6787315-dreamy

Ever dream of what it might be like to live in a world where there is so much joy that everyone gets along with each other without a single fight? I do, (though that would be a dream) though I would have to guess that it’s too much to wish for, there never can be true peace in this world, because someone will hate the other for anything they set their mind to, but It really cannot possibly hurt us that much to wonder now could it?

Perhaps it could but I believe that is for another day, moving on to much greater and even brighter imaginations of the mind, do you ever dream of what it might be like someday to finally reach the other side and see your long lost relative? The one that was on their way to church that night who happened to get brutally killed from a drunk driver, or how about that young Marine that had so dedicated himself to his faith and then took up arms to defend it in war coming back home to be respectfully buried? Perhaps he wasn’t a Marine, maybe Air Force, Navy or Army, but regardless their specific military affiliation I am sure it is something many family members and friends of passed young soldiers wonder from time to time, what it might be like to see them one day.

Or have you ever dreamed of going to Australia, Italy, France, England, Spain, Brazil, Hawaii, or any of those great places? Has the thought ever even crossed your mind when you think about all the amazing adventures that you could have traveling the world, meeting new people, seeing,  eating, smelling and feeling all kinds of new things, the way the ocean smells, looks and feels when a nice little breeze blows a small little wave into your direction, or maybe the rich earth characteristics that belong to the cultural country of Spain? Maybe just having some Fish and Chips near the a form of water in England? That’s my dream some day, I think that it would be neat to travel and also to write about those travels.

Do You?

How about this, do you ever even dream at all? I’m sure you must dream at some point because it is something that pretty much every person does whether they even realize it or not, dreaming of a new car or a hot dog with your favorite toppings, it doesn’t have to be some huge majestic dream any will do really. As long as you are a dreamer, as long as you set your goals as high as possible even if you don’t always reach them they will always be there and no matter what if you keep trying with great determination, you might just succeed.

Not everyone will succeed though, but it doesn’t mean we can’t still dream, we can always make time for that, because no matter what deep inside we will always have an imagination, without it we are pretty much non human at that point. Imagination gives us the power to envision the impossible and ‘DO IT’ without that we wouldn’t have what he have today, and we couldn’t possibly be talking with each other on our personal computer devices right now.

Because Steve Jobs and his friends imagined a world where anyone would be able to purchase one of their very own computers, and while people thought they were crazy in thinking that, look at us now, pretty much everyone has some type of computer device, I’m pretty sure that way back then even they couldn’t imagine how big an outcome it would have on the world, though I’m pretty sure that Jobs could have, he just had that drive.

THINK – IMAGINE – PURSUE – Nathan Tune

I think that will be my theme next year and I believe I will stick with it for awhile too, because to survive we must first THINK of something wonderful, then we must IMAGINE it’s reality and finally we must PURSUE it into existence.

Last but not least…

I dream of a President, a man that isn’t afraid to lead courageously and vigorously, a man that isn’t some career politician but a man with principals, a President that’s real, can you even comprehend what it would be like to have that? To have a REAL leader in the WhiteHouse, in charge of this country? I dream of someone that has a proven record to stand for liberty, freedom, justice, equality and American Exceptionalism, is there such a man?

I believe there is, and while it is left up to each of us as individuals to make our own choice in this life, I myself strongly and firmly believe that TX Sen. Ted Cruz Is that man, I know there are many who may not feel that way but I for one am tired of having my principals compromised just so that a ‘Party’ can win, we must not allow ourselves to be faced with the lesser of two evils, we have a choice to make and it is our responsibility to God and Country to make the right choice. 

In Conclusion: 

I dream of many things, who doesn’t? But at this moment right now more than ever, I dream of a President that fears God first and wants to do what’s right for everyone in this country and I do know that views differ about the candidate I’ve chosen to fully support, I can’t imagine taking anything less than strong firm principled people that aren’t only focused on ‘winning’

But are also focused on fighting ‘FOR THE PEOPLE’ don’t get me wrong, there are a few others I have in mind if hypothetically my candidate was to lose the primaries, but for that to happen the others I have in mind would have to win over the cronies, I believe that there used to be a time when Americans loved God and Country, when politics and God went hand in hand yet religion wasn’t made political rather we had a great moral nature and no one was forced to believe what they didn’t want to believe rather we had a strong ethical generation of people that loved each other and wanted what was best for their country, being someone young born in this generation even though we are blessed with a lot more ease, I sometimes wonder why I wasn’t born in a better era.

This time period is just too wicked and evil for me, but I am able to dream of more than just this world as it is, I dream of this world becoming something better and together we can make that happen.

Until next time…

CHRIST-MAS!

Dec

MERRY CHRIST-MAS my dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ!

short-merry-christmas-wallpapersI hope you are all having a lovely holiday today, I am just simply trying to enjoy it as best I can and look back on times gone by, it is quite amazing how much time can change things isn’t it?

Each time I start to write one of these blog posts I try to shoot for about 500 words or more because I just feel that is what they should be, not too long, not too short but something good and soul providing, encouraging, uplifting, inspiring (I hope) and good food for your spirit!

Don’t forget what the season is truly about, it’s about these simple attributes below:

  • Christ
  • Giving
  • Love
  • Peace
  • Joy
  • Happy-ness
  • Kindness
  • Caring
  • Sharing
  • Togetherness

If we ever forget that we will lose all sight of the holiday’s, and I’m afraid there are too many people that have already forgotten, as I said in my last actual radio show, CHRIST-MAS isn’t really ALL about gifts, fancy dishes, a lot of food, super savings at the grocery store, egg nog, it’s not about how much ‘stuff’ you get at all. CHRIST-MAS first and foremost has always been about CHRIST.

Now if you’ve been paying attention you’ll notice that I have been spelling Christmas like the following – “CHRIST-MAS” why is that? Simply because if you look at that last word “MAS” in Spanish, it is then translated to “MORE” am I right? I don’t know much Spanish, but I know that  much to tell you, yes I am right! So looking at it with that mindset, Christmas is really one or as matter of fact THE biggest season of the year and it is possibly the one day out of the entire year that CHRIST is recognized MAS than he is any other day of the year!

When CHRIST-MAS is celebrated in that context.

Which I believe for many, many, many many, many years now it always has been, people have always celebrated CHRIST-MAS to honor and glorify – CHRIST!

Now don’t get me wrong, I do not doubt for one minute that there aren’t people who are caught up in all the “stuff” people that ‘worship’ Santa, the elves, the tree, blah blah blah.

I’m pretty sure there are some and we know for a fact that more and more each year our beloved Christmas becomes this commercialization about business making more and more money while people kill each other to save less, it is increasing at a rapid speed, people going crazy about the ‘stuff’ rather than the true meaning.

And we cannot deny that the majority of all the world recognizes Christmas as CHRIST’S birthday and he IS glorified by, he IS, it’s just a ‘fact’ even sinners have to recognize him that day because when Christmas is celebrated the way it always has been, and the one that will  really comes out being glorified is GOD and while I believe the spirit of Christ-mas lives inside each and every single one of us all throughout the year, because I believe it is just the TRUE love of Christ.

It just for some reason takes the actual season of CHRIST-MAS to activate it, then it begins to work outside of us, so what do you say my friends? Are you going to embrace  CHRISTMAS spirit this season? And if you do, why not riding it all throughout  the New Year as well?

And possibly throughout the rest of your life? (Just a wild thought)

I know many have their criticism of Christmas but I will continue to celebrate it, as my favorite parts are the lights and Christ said he is the LIGHT of the world, so why let your house be all dark, gloomy and Scrooge-y this Christmas?

Just to let you all know, again, after today I will be taking a 5 day break from the social world and my phone/internet/laptop and most all electronic devices other than TV to watch some shows and movies with my family.

Celebrate Christ more this Christ-mas!

God bless you all!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!
