The who of man



Behind this helm of life I stand,
Holding fast, to Stay the course.
Resting in this awesome fact,

Whether seas be calm or rough ,
I WILL GO THROUGH with no remorse
to peace ln harbors bluff



Think of rough times as an exercise in;
PERSEVERANCE and CHARACTER

This is the WHO of man.

James 1,2-3

    

 

 


   

 

 

 

We are all on a journey through the sea of life,
you will bask in the Sun
in one moment
and be shattered on the rocks
the next,
what makes you a man
is what you do
when that storm comes.
You must look into the face
of that storm and yell
at the top of your voice.
I know the hand that created you
and His hand protects me
so bring it on.
I will go through
as his hand covers me.
Old Proverb: In this world
you will have tribulations
but fear not for He has overcome the world.

Remember this life is only
the journey preparing
for greater things.
Don't look back with remorse,
wishing you had taken
a better path,
you are wiser and stronger
because of your mistakes.

You are the one who can truly point to the right path for those who follow.

YOU ARE ALMOST THERE!
WELL DONE GOOD AND FAIHFUL SERVANT.

Stop to Smell The Roses

I have never claimed to have an original thought, 
but rather a transporter of valuable truth,
hidden deep in the holds of my ship of life 
to share with those in need.

To some they have no value
but to others, they are life indeed.

Deut. 30. 19 : I set before you, life and death. 
 Choose life that you and your seed may live
.

Example:

Happiness and love are in your hands

to choose or reject.

To reject is to choose bitterness.

 

To Quote the words of a poet:

'Some say, love it's a river

that drowns the tender reed.

Some say love, it is a razor

that leaves the soul to bleed.

Some say Love it is a hunger

an endless ache and need.

I say, love it is a flower,

and you it's only seed.

 

It's the heart, afraid of breaking

that never learns to dance.

It's the dream afraid of waking

that never takes the chance.

It's the one who won't be taken

that never seems to give.

And the soul afraid of dying,

that never learns to live.

 

When the night has been too lonely

and the road has been too long,

and you think that love is only

for the lucky and the strong,

just remember in the winter,

far beneath the bitter snow,

lies the seed,

that with the Son's love,

 

 

 


   

  

 

 

This is a test
and only a test.

IT IS SAID

Give to Ceaser that which is Ceasers,
to God that which is Gods.

Have we given that which belongs to God
to Ceaser?
In order to get a tax-deduction?

On a coin is the image of the government.
So pay your taxes to the government.

God's image is stamped on your life,
so give to God what belongs to God.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Thinking for yourself?

Is it easier to regurgitate the accepted philosophy
of your club, party, church
than to do your own research for the truth?

Is it easier for a child to use a calculator
to come up with the right mathematical answer
than do write it down or work it out on paper?

Is it more important to fit in, in order be accepted?

Are we allowing ourselves to be dumbed down to conformity?

What is critical thinking?
Is it to criticize or is it to be analytical?

Shouldn't you strive to understand the agenda
of those that desire to control you?

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Wounds

In dealing with a deep wound, it is necessary to expose the wound, clean it, then re-bandage it.
If this is not done,
gangrene will set in,
and finally death.
The same is with the wounds
of the past,
or childhood wounds.
You will never grow to maturity until you deal with the past.
Expose it and let it heal.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Among the pastors
who lead the church today, the greatest thing that is missing is humility. When a pastor stands to teach or lead,
He must first of all stand before his people
as the imperfect and the least,
IE the servant of them all.
To Humble himself to wash their feet,
If you cannot teach from your own failures,
or admit your
struggle with the flesh.
And you only teach the answers
for the test of life,
WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING
you because of Pride OF YOUR KNOWLEDGE
are no more than a damn hypocrite

Best way to prepare for a teaching.
Three hours of deep study into the subject,
and eight hours of mindless workin the field,
so that you can meditate on the
three hours of study.

YOUR MEDITATION IS SUPERIOR
TO YOUR STUDY.
Study is knowledge which will puff up.
Meditation will bring understanding
which creates humility.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

The wise man can learn from even an idiot,
but the arrogant will have difficulty learning from a wise man.
Maybe the Arrogant is in fact the idiot.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

In this crowded, busy, but fog-filled life,
you may feel that you stand alone,
but no!
In that fog is the blanket of His love and peace,
be still and watch-full,
for you are not alone.
You are called to be the Alpha,
a watch-men on the wall

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

The definition of transference

The old fart
Who did what?

It was a cold winter night.
The old Sea Captain and his faithful dog after having a very heavy meal, got ready to hide under the covers.
The dog was tucked away in his bed,
and the captain also hid under his blankets.
He was fast asleep in only moments.
As the night progressed he was suddenly awakened with the most grotesque foul smell he had ever smelt.
His thought was, the dog has gotten sick and crapped all over the floor.
So he very gingerly put one foot over the side of the bed and stepped carefully so that he would not step in it.
Then as he took another step feeling on the wall to find the light switch,
he noticed the wind was still blowing
and there was absolutely no smell.
What on Earth was that smell?
Apparently the old man was putting the blame on his dog when it was
his own fart under the covers.
So the captain must be a Democrat transferring his guilt
onto Donald Trump.



    

 

 


   

  

 

 

And the two shall become one

Most of us get married for self-gratification.
Example
I love her because she makes me feel.

Marriage is God's way
of taking two self centered people,
then put them in a box along with the problems of the world,
and as they tumble day after day eventually they will learn to yield to eachother,
until they become smooth!
or they break apart,
because of Pride and control.

But if they learn to yield or submit to each other they will become one.

ONLY AS THEY OPEN UP TO EACH OTHER
WILL THEY BECOME ONE.

TRANSPARENCY
What a concept?

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Sedition

A disgruntled worker who hated his boss
caused a ravenous pestilence
to inflict a few of his sheep.
And in his frantic effort to rid the few sheep
with this deadly pestilence,
he caused an epidemic of fear
in the rest of the many sheep
who in great fear
stampeded over the cliff.
In turn he lost more sheep from the fear
than he did from the virus.
His real intent was to get rid of his boss,
even at the expense of the
loss of the entire herd.
Where we go one we go all.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

The forgotten verse.

O thus be it ever when
freemen shall stand
Between their lov'd home
and the war's desolation!

Blest with vict'ry and peace
may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the power that hath made
and preserv'd us a nation!
Then conquer we must,
when our cause it is just,

And this be our motto -
"In God is our trust,"
And the star-spangled banner
in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free
and the home of the brave.

The epitome of hypocrisy

The Man Who in all his effort to live a holy perfect life,
The question is how to do this?
Become a nun?
how about a monk?
no! maybe I won't like the brothers,
How about Solitude!
except ?
when you're in solitude you come face-to-face with your worst enemy (SELF)

The greatest lesson I finally learned
after 70 years was that my worst enemy to overcome in this life was (SELF)
When WILL YOU finally understand.
that only you and your creator can overcome this great enemy,
The answer is what the Lord said to Paul'
my grace is sufficient for you.
MY GRACE IS SUFFECIENT FOR YOU
Thank you Lord.

YOUR PART IS TO SUBMIT TO HIM
HIS PART IS TO SUPPLY THE GRACE.

Failure can be our greatest teacher.
Some of our greatest athletes
in the world
become that way by failing the most,
but they get up every time
and try again.
We as foolish men, doing nothing,
only remember when they win,
and then we criticise when they fail.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Following the light
at the end of the tunnel.

Everyone is on a stairway
following the lights.

One set of stairs is going up.
It can be very hard .
It demands discipline.

The other stairway is an escalator,
it is easy going down.
The light at the end of the stairway
is very beautiful
but that is the one
that is going down.

The deceiver presents himself
as an angel of light
VERY BEAUTIFUL
and we are all deceived buy our own desire of beauty, ease, comfort, AMUSEMENT.

don't abhorre the coming tests, but take joy in passing the test.

TRUST
I have never lost a battle.
I am looking for a few good men, and I will take everyone
That can make the cut.
I.e. TRUST
I demand respect and obedience.
I am patient, I am long suffering,
AS LONG as you GROW in this discipline.

I only look for one thing in order for you to stay in my army.
I'm looking for TRUST
that I have already won and you will be with Me to share with Me this final Victory.
I will not keep the lazy or the coward or the one who causes discord amongst
MY MEN.
DO I HAVE THE RIGHT
to do that?
DAM RIGHT!
I'm only looking for those who have the confidence in the fact that I have already won this battle.
You must be willing to die to have the GURANTEE OF ETERNAL LIFE.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

As The Twig is bent so shall it grow

The Farmer plants a grapevine
but as the twig grows,
by nature it spreads out
along the ground.

It will never bear fruit
unless it is corrected,
sometimes by gentle force.
In this way it will learn discipline,
and grow straight.
In so doing it will bear much fruit.

So is the life of your son.

Father's you are the farmer,
your son's success depends on your care.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Intellect versus humility

The more knowledge
The more wisdom
The more understanding you have
is only in direct proportion
to your willingness to serve humbly.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Integrity!
In retrospect
Now that you have traveled some,
on this road of life,
when you look back to see the wandering past behind you,
are willing to expose all those errors or imperfections as you contrast them with perfection?

Sometimes God can use a crooked stick to draw a straight line.

TRANSPARENCY
What a concept

    

 

 

 

 


   

  

 

 

The Stone Rejected

Psalm 118 verse 22
The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.
This stone can refer to the last stone to be placed into an arch which is called the center stone or the capstone on the top of the Pyramid of Cheops.

As Michael Angelo combed through the rubble of an old rock quarry he came upon one stone which was tossed to the side as useless
because of a great fracture in it.
With great loving care he carried it to His own home
and began to work on this impossible task to shape it into the form of David.

In the same way the son of David
has searched through
the gutters of this world
and He has found you and I,
rejected and cast away.

He has made a place in his heart for us.

If we will receive and submit! to his love
He will transform us into his own image.

Jesus is the capstone,
but He has chosen you and I
to be part of his great building,
if we will submit to his hammer and chisel
and finally the sand paper and Polish .

This is all for the glory
of His great love for us.

ENIGMA___
definition of enigma
a person or a thing that is mysterious puzzling or difficult to understand.
I would like to explain to you what's spoken from the pulpit,
The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.
WHAT???

How about, The respect of God is the beginning of wisdom.
That s a little better.

I believe the AWE of God !
is the beginning of wisdom.

The definition of AWE,
A feeling of reverential respect with fear
or wonder.
An attitude of humility before God,
Self is totally insignificant.
Pause to think on this.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

And the smith
his iron measures hammered to the anvil's chime;
Thanking God,
whose boundless wisdom makes
the flowers of poesy bloom
In the forge's dust and cinders,
in the tissues of the loom.

Very often we are asked how do you FEEL?

or at other times we dwell on our emotions good or bad.

We may meditate on our fears of things to come, in most cases they never manifest.

These thoughts or feelings, or emotions are all superficial,
THY HAVE NO SUBSTANCE

To answer this problem we must take control of all of these thoughts emotions and fears by casting them down and think of what is substantially real with an attitude of thankfulness whatever is good whatever is honest whatever is pure whatever is lovely think on these things

Every day is a gift from God.
That is why they call it the PRESENT.
So open your daily Present with thanksgiving.

What is LIFE?

(Life is a benevolent Master)

Who gives to all
but rewards only those who fight
and seek to understand truth.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

The power and mistique of a woman.

Is that which draws a man to her side,
as a partner,
as an equal,
as the necessity in life.

Man was made to be
the bulldozer,
the truck,
the tractor,

The crystal vase was to be
the music,
the center of all that is precious in the man's life
everything he would work for,
strive to conquer.

Her soft and calm continents is what his delight is to come home to.

Her art in preparing and setting the table
is as sensual to him as the smell
and the beauty of her appearance.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

THE WORRIER

They say that worry will not help anything, but I don't believe that,
I think I am very successful at it
Because 90% of that which I worry about never comes to be.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Deception is easier to deal with than
THE TRUTH,

which may interfere with what
I WANT TO DO.

2nd Tim 4:3

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Trials in life are inevitable,
don't abhorre the coming tests,
but take joy in passing the test.

For each test is only
a rung on the ladder of life,
with each step
the vista, joy, wisdom
is more majestic.

Philippians chapter 4:4-8

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

I'm reminded of an old shack,
the sun is rising
and streaming in the window to the floor.
IT IS STILL,
not a breath of air moving.

The old man picked up his pipe
and packed it, then lit it.

The first puff of smoke billowed out
in beautiful curls as the Sun
caught its splendor
floating - twirling - leaving a
delightful saver.
And then!
And then it's gone!

So it is in life.
You're born with the splendor of youth,
you're filled with love, wife, children.

They grow and then they're gone.
Then you slowly fade away.

What did you leave behind?

And what hope did you anchor your life upon?

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

When sailing a ship one must always be checking his compass
to correct his course.
Otherwise he will not arrive at the expected Harbor.
So it is in life When one humbles himself to say I was wrong, please forgive me;
This is more beneficial to oneself than to the one he has hurt.
You see it is self-examination of your character,
and integrity is now restored.
A man is only as good as his word.
What's more even God regards his Word
to be even above his name.

FLATTERY IS UNDESERVED CREDIT


When you take credit for something good .
(whether you deserve it or not)

Did you ever think that there will be a day that you MUST PAY for the credit you took upon yourself.



    

 

 


   

  

 

 

You will never truly help or lift the load of another fellow traveler in life, until you feel the weight of his burden on your shoulders.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

THE BIG BANG

From the moment of coitus till now you have been called to the race.

In the beginning there was this exciting orgasmic mad rush
of thousands,
but only one would win

It happens that you were that seed
and were the one to win the rush to life.

And there you were standing on this platform of beginnings,
with the whole world cheering your arrival.

Your thought from that great start was:
Wow it's all about me.

But now you have
the fourth quarter.

You find it is not as glorious as you thought life is.

Its not all about you
you're being knocked around,
misunderstood, ridiculed,
life is not fair.

You tried to run straight and were deceived by the cunning alure
of the beauty of evil and desire,
you tripped,
you fell,
now you want to quit.

But stop, wait!

This race is not about being first!

This race is about standing with courage upon the truth
that has been revealed to you.

Hold fast!--Stay the course!
you will!

FINISH WELL.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

There were two lifeguards
sitting on their great and high pedestals
by the beach.
They both came from two different schools of thought.
Today they had a trainee with them
and he was sitting on a stool below them.

There was a young lady
way out at sea
floundering and drowning crying for help.

The two lifeguards were arguing
as to just how the proper way was
to save this young lady.
While at the same time the young trainee went out and saved her, brought her back. And she was so happy about it.

The two lifeguards decided to chastise the young man because he didn't do a very good job of saving her

My thought is this:
Is this not like our different denominations fighting amongst each other while the world is going to hell in a hand-basket?

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

The bitter sweet joy of overcoming temptation.



Years have passed and the memory!

even pain of that what if;





The beauty of desire,

and lust still linger,

as an echo.



Only because of principle

and circumstance

this meteor of desire

missed it's disastrous goal.



And now you see more clearly,

you can see the cost

or the loss unto others,

retrieved.



Because you did not yield or because someone pushed you out of its way

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

There was a young man infatuated with lighthouses later on in life he was given one to care for.
So he worked diligently every day to clean and paint the outside and a polish all of the glass in this lighthouse.

His favorite place was a beautiful room at the top of the lighthouse.
The view was magnificent what pride he took in all of its beauty

But after working so hard all day he found it difficult to sleep at night ,
with that glaring light
going round and round.

It was so much more peaceful to just turn the light out and enjoy the stars and the moon at night.

But one night there came a mighty storm and he was asleep.

HIS LIGHT WAS OUT

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

ANOTHER THOUGHT

There was a man who suffered great in his desire to bring light into the world.

After much effort he created the light bulb and then he created many more.

He was so pleased with his creation,
and there was a great love affair between him and his creation.

So he gave the light bulbs the Great Commission ---

You are the light of the world,
fill the world with light.

They immediately went out and spread the light over the whole world,
but after a while they would just get together once a week in a very dark room to compete with each other as to who was brighter than the other.

Occasionally a dim bulb would come in.
Or one that was flickering and almost going out.

They would jump on them or condemn them for not being very bright.

They had forgotten the greatest principle, and that is even the smallest spark in a very dark cave can lead the people to salvation.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

WHO is Life?

I once referred to life as a benevolent master who gives to all but rewards only those who seek.

Let's look at life as a loving mother or father who plays peek-a-boo with the new born baby.

Why peekaboo?

For this reason only,
to establish confidence in the child ,
so that even though the parent is not seen
HE is still there watching.

If you seek me with all your heart you will find me always there!!!!

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Death is a faithful servant,
who visits us all!

Then to sort us out in different places
of our own choosing.

One day the ruler of life and death
will relieve death of his duties,

HE then will rule and reign over ALL!
LIFE AND DEATH




    

 

 


   

  

 

 

When I was in the military service
I learned trust or faith
through
INTREPID obedience.

i.e. To do
or fear not to do,

because of a growing
trustful love
through ABIDING ASSOCIATION
with the
drill INSTRUCTOR.

Freedom

Not everyone is welcome on my ship,

FOR IF I MUST TREAT
EVERYONE THE SAME,
I can't treat someone special.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

We all have come into this world naked and empty handed, grabbing for that what we need.

We leave naked
and empty-handed
of all that which we could grab.

So remember!
that which was so precious!
in life...

Hold onto it loosely
because when it is time to let it go
it will not hurt so bad.

After all you have nothing in this world that was not given to you by
GRACE.
Without air to breathe a heart to beat
you could not have received
ANYTHING.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Do not protect your child from hardship.
For the discomfort is the beef-steak in life
for him to cut his teeth upon.

He can learn from difficulty
but receives nothing from the pacifier.

Challenges are the spices of life,
as the rain storm
brings appreciation
for the Sun and flowers.

You will not crave water till you are walking through the desert.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

There is the man who can father kids.
But he REFUSES
to father his kids.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

We never stop being a parent,
but it would seem,
that to many of us
THAT IS NOT
APPARENT.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

The Lost Horizon

In many cases the media is inundating
us with the cares of this moment,
and so if we accept it we stop the flow
of His mercy and grace
which leads us to hope.


    

 

 


   

  

 

 

How often we see the
union between a man and a woman,
they come together
they may even be by all outward appearances to become one.
But in reality it was only superficial
they produced children
they may even have worked or toiled together.
Did they ever learn to communicate?
Deep too deep,
and in the final parting were they only two ships passing out at sea?

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

A WOMAN
IS LIKE A FIREPLACE

At one time there is a raging fire,
and another time
an even gentle ongoing flame
and then there are those
beautiful coals,
slowly, ,
burning in the hearth.

The secret in the fire
is how you attend to it.

HUSBANDS, HOW ARE YOU
ATTENDING TO YOUR
WIFE?

A simplistic sketch of the progressive steps of the natural man without Divine Principle.

1. Born in absolute dependency for food and cleaning.

2. The need to learn to feed themselves and tie their shoes .

3. Having to submit,
obey or else.

4. School 1 and 1 is 2,
work to make ends meet.

5. Learn to use others weaker than yourself to gain more for yourself.

6. Independence of those who taught you and now great pride in your own autonomy.

7 Superiority over those weaker:
HOW to use their ignorance for your benefit in the name of helping them.

8. Abundant wealth.,

9. Control of others.

10. Power corrupts,
absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Example:
Hitler, Stalin, Mao Tse-tung,
today's politicians.
That's for you to judge,
but be careful,
you will be judged accordingly.
Start by looking deep within.

So much for electing those who say I am progressive.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

THE INCONVENIENCE OF THE UNEXPECTED

The beautiful oyster shell
nestled on the ocean floor ,
loving, enjoying
the gentle sea currents,
the exotic colorful coral,
the seaweed caressing her sides,
the excited
orgasmic enjoyment of life,
until one stray seed in .
A PIECE OF SAND!
A real irritant
What a disruption
and inconvenience!
but worst of all
those virtues
and principles of life
getting in the way.
What can I do?

When the oyster
receives a grain of sand in her shell it's painful to her,
its an inconvenience to her,
so she broods over
it she works with it
and accepts it,
and over a period of time
it becomes a beautiful pearl.

So it is with the unexpected conception of a child.

Life happens while you are making selfish decisions

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

FREEDOM OF CHOICE

Our time on this earth is a bus stop, not a homestead.
So let's think outside the box.
Freedom has nothing to do with the opposite, which is slavery.
It has to do with free will which comes with baggage

The baggage is:
you are ultimately responsible for your decisions.
We are all taught by others,
but we are responsible for what we decide to believe,
and will account for our decisions as to what we believe and what we chose to do with it.
It would be important to get a good lawyer to speak for you on the day of accounting.
1st John 2,1

Why is it that we measure how high we are by comparing ourselves with those around us?

How high you are is relative to the truth that you submit to,
Whether it is God's truth or the cares of this world.

Are you in a flower garden
or the city dump?

As a child we would play
king of the castle,
which happened to be
the local horse manure pile
because it was the only mountain around to play on.

That is what I mean by measuring
your self by those who are around you.

Daniel ch 4: 17

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

THE APPLE WITH A WORM

The worm hole in the Apple:
is it there for the worm to get in
or for the worm to get out?

If it is there to get out,
how did he get in?

So it is in life,
we are all born with
that seed of sin within.

The conservative farmer would not throw the Apple away,
he would give it to his wife,
she would cut the worm out and make apple pie.

Even though you may have imperfections in your life,
God is patient, He will cut the imperfection out and make something beautiful out of
YOUR LIFE

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Times do not change

There was a time that all people spoke the same language.

So they rose up to defy the creator of the world so that there would never ever be another flood ,
they built the Tower of Babel.

Their languages we're all confused and so they were scattered over the whole world.

Today after four thousand years we can all speak the same language once again by the computer ,
do you think that we are ready to finally make war on this God that we think is stopping us from all the fun that we should be able to have.
So far we are allowing our government to get rid of all traces of this celestial kill joy.
Times do not change.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

The epitome of arrogance

Life becomes difficult,
only because of others.

You see, if all people understood
the way I do,
or could see as clear as I do,
then none of us would get offended at each other.
WHAT A CONCEPT!!!
We would all get along
very well.

You see.
I get offended at others because they cannot see that all I am doing was for their best interest.

It was also advantageous for me.

I realize I understand better than others, so I being wiser should be patient with those who are
IGNORANT.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

BREATHE IN BREATHE OUT
BREATHE IN BREATHE OUT


At times that's all you can do.

You breathe in all of the good,
the new life,
the richness
of the future ahead.

But to enjoy any of this,
you must breathe out
all of the bitterness the pain,
and even
those cherished things
that you loved but can't hold on to.

Exhale!
let it all go.
Empty yourself of all that past.
Now breathe in
all of the new life of peace.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

WHY IS COMMUNICATION
SO DIFFICULT?

HOW a person responds
to ME,
Usually has nothing to do...
WITH ME.

Until I respond in like manner with something that has nothing to do...
WITH HIM!

These are two people coming from two different circumstances in life;
now trying to relate
from two totally different directions,
leading to total confusion and anger.

So when dealing with
difficult problems
try to find neutral territory;

PREFERABLY
over a cup of tea.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Oximoron

While espousing clarity of thought,
a large part of advertisements
are IRONIC
Example
Planned parenthood
The woman uses birth control pills,
the man gets FIXED i.e. visectamy,
the baby gets aborted
and is used for body parts.
sounds like a junkyard.
THIS IS THE EPITOME
OF IRONY.

FREE public education
No Child Left Behind.
It's a shame to let a good mind
go to waste.

Now the student comes out of college
without the ability
to nail two boards together.
53% of them are jobless,
and in great deal of debt to the government.

DEATH WITH DIGNITY
What would that look like,
A 45 to the head?
Too messy, and I don't like loud noises
you could also get hurt doing that.

How about a drive through mortuary
with tax deduction for your car,
a tax deduction for your body parts
and your ashes
are mailed to your children
as fertilizer for the garden.

This is what you call
THINKING GREEN

Climate control and overpopulation

All of Canada the United States and Europe are not producing babies and they are killing the ones they do not want to the point of national extermination

So if the productive of Nations become extinct who will feed the non-productive welfare recipients of the world?

Climate control

If government decides
they can control climate
this will give government
total control over people
and no control over climate.
The people will be fed by the government.
Freedom with responsibility
will be no more.
We will all become serfs or slaves
of the government,
for the government to abort or eliminate as needed.

A quote from President elect Bernie Sanders,
"Isis is caused by climate change.
Is that to say, if we could change the climates then the wild Isis gangs will stop cutting off heads and raping ten-year-old boys and girls?"

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

A QUOTE FROM
THE BIG BO
SEVEN YEARS AGO

We are five days from fundamentally transforming America.

How would you go about fundamentally transforming a barrel of Good Apples?

Number 1
put three layers of good apples on the bottom of the barrel.

Number 2,
place two rotten apples in the middle.

Number 3,
fill the barrel with Good Apples.

Number 4.
Put the lid on the top of the barrel.

Now you have climate control

Walla! Fundamentally transformed.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Can you tell the depth of a person's understanding and commitment to God,
in other words spirituality,
by his politics?

Damn right!


The extreme-right
Will be self-righteous controlling idiots.


The extreme left
Will be tyrannical dictators trying to please all for his OWN BENEFIT.

Two old religious words that we do not understand.

Saint and Holy:
These two words come from one Greek word Hagios which means set apart.

That's easier to understand.

Now lets look at the word righteous;
Another confusing religious word.

If God has set you apart, are you His?
If you are His, then in His eyes
you are without blame
you are righteous!
Eph. 1:1-4

You will answer, but not in my eyes!
Are you greater than God?
Do you see better than God?

How stupid can one man get!

It is your damnable pride and your own self-righteousness that refuses to see yourself Through The Eyes Of God.

So humble yourself in Thanksgiving for his grace and mercy.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Why The Now?

No Crystal Cathedral!
No Church with a Steeple!
BUT ON A SEA OF GLASS
The Sun stoops low
to passionately caress his beloved horizon,
Her body trembles with adoration,
receiving his kiss with a blush of fire
in her cheeks.

I STOP to realize, but WHY?
I am indeed this Temple of God,
Crafted by His own hands,
for this very moment was made for me!
For Him to show His love
and acceptance of my being.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

The Clock of life is wound but once
And no man has the power



To know just when the hands will stop,
At late or early hour.

To lose one's wealth is sad indeed,
To lose one's health is more.
To lose one's soul is such a loss
That no man can restore.

The present only is our own.
Live, love, toil with a will.
Place no faith in 'tomorrow'
For the clock may then be still.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

ode to the sailor

4S.D. Ode to the sailor
Although I call and hear no answer
I seek your Face,
and
In the stars I see your smiling eyes
of assurance,
I'm reminded of your thoughts
for me

They are thoughts for good,
and not for evil,
so that I may have an expected hope.

Jer. 29:11

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Your Life lived!


If you could go back to change those things,
that you are not proud of,
would you?
If you could,
and did change those things.
Would you be the man,
of leadership and commitment
that you are today?
In many cases,
it is your mistakes of the past,
that has made you
the strong man of today.
Sometimes God uses a Crooked Stick
to draw a straight line.
Don't hide your past mistakes,
be a father,
ie. be a patriarch,
be a leader.

The rewards in life
are not compiled by
the things you did right,
but by how you dealt with
the things you did wrong.

Not everyone is welcome on my ship,

FOR IF I MUST TREAT EVERYONE THE SAME,

I can’t treat someone special.


    

 

 


   

  

 

 

What is life?
Life is a benevolent master giving to all equally.

But rewarding only those who fight to know the truth.

So let's look at that statement so often taken out of context.
All men are created equal.
All men are not equal,
they are (created) equal.

The statement says all men are created,
but it's what you did,
with that created life that was given to you.

Should you receive a trophy,???
if all you did was show up to the starting line??
You must run the race!

The reward is not to those who run the fastest,
But to all who stay the course and persevere in the face of fear,to the end.

Don't compete with your neighbor,
Compete with yourself,
that will be hard enough as it is.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

If you know the truth

Why do you insist on proving to others that you are right.
when you know that you are.

Don't curse the darkness.
Light a candle,

No amount of darkness can overcome
the light of one candle.

Your job is to shut your mouth
and BE that shining light.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Words____

How powerful are words?
Do words change the atmosphere?
Are words physical?
Father comes into the family spouting angry vile curses.
Did he actually change the atmosphere of his happy family,
Is he about to put his ship on the rocks?
Yes, with all the neighbors watching.

Can problems in your life become your saving grace?


Old Norwegian fisherman and his son went out to sea.
Picking their way through the jagged rocks and surf, they into calm sea.
As the day passed a sudden squall came up, the sky became black,
they must hurry back to shore.
Something was wrong,
the light house was black.
How to find the shore?
They were doomed to wreck
on the rocks.
Meanwhile at home
his wife was preparing supper.
As they sailed in the direction
of what they thought was the shore,
there was a small flickering light,
and then it grew greater.
Thank God it gave enough light
to see the deadly rocks.
As they came into the shore
his wife ran down to them crying.
We just lost our house in the fire.

The old man was not disturbed,
she wondered why.
He said the light from the burning house was the only thing that saved Jon and me from loosing our life on the rocks .

In the problems of life, always look for
the silver lining of the black clouds.
Live with an attitude of gratitude.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

IT IS SAID

Give to Ceaser that which is Ceasers,
to God that which is Gods.

Have we given that which belongs to God
to Ceaser?
In order to get a tax-deduction?

On a coin is the image of the government.
So pay your taxes to the government.

God's image is stamped on your life,
so give to God what belongs to God.

Left and right

How does the body move forward smoothly.
The body is equipped with a left and the right leg.
Both are diametrically opposed
they don't think alike,
not until the head gives the order of direction
and the two opposing legs
submit to the head and to each other
in spite of their differences of opinion.
This is how the whole body moves forward smoothly.
You preachers quit b******* about the fact
that some preacher thinks different than you do.
Jesus said "if they're not against me they are for me."



PREACHERS.
If Jesus isn't upset about
the differences.
Why are you?
Who's running this show after all.
Your just a water hose i.e. messenger.

A true Christmas Message.

How is it the greatest wisdom of life is revealed to a Child,
so that they can lead the prideful arrogant Mind.

Isaiah 11 /6

An orphanage in Russia 1991

Totally lacking of moral or religious training,
the children heard for the very first time ,
the story of the baby Jesus born in a manger
because there was no room in the inn .

The children were asked to build a manger
with the baby Jesus in it,
with scraps of paper and rags that they could find.

6 year old Yusuf made his manger
with two babies in it.

When asked why two babies.

He said,
When I saw the baby Jesus cold in the manger
I said, I have no gift to give you because I am poor
with no home or place to stay,
may I lie down beside you to help keep you warm.

The baby Jesus said,
yes you may lay down beside me
and you may stay with me always,
that will keep me warm.

Except as you become as a little child!!

Jesus came to lay down His life for us.
We must lay our lives down with Him

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

When you aspire to become
the flag on the end of a pole
for everyone to follow,
are you willing to be

What is more important for the garden, the water or the hose?

The gardener sleeps in his house with his hose in the shed.
Both are useless
unless they are out in the dirt.

Those who would be

should get out of their comfort zone,
to deliver the water i.e. the message
to the people, i.e. the garden.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Young man and his ego
boasts of great and mighty things,
sees himself as 100 feet long.
When in fact he is only 1 half of 1 percent at the best.
And that's in the morning before he gets out of bed.

The true test of manhood is
his commitment to do the hard thing in the face of fear,
to protect his crew
and at the same time, expecting and inspecting
the crew to man-up and do their duty.

After doing all of that!
taking his ship and crew through the roughest seas.
by example,
then stands before his crew ,
and for the first time they will say with true respect
"Aye Aye captain"
we are ready we are willing to go all the way through.
Only then have you reached the heights of manhood.
you truly have honor.

Young man must learn to put his hand in the hand of his Creator
rather then to allow his life be led by his ego.

No man is an island.

Just because you disagree with someone does that make you right?
When you convince someone else that you are right and they were wrong,
You are bordering on the sin of control.

You are not allowing them to be a free person with their own mind.

If you have been commanded
to deliver a message to the employees,
at what point of this delivery
does the message

You preachers,
building your own empire,
remember you are
nothing but a water hose,
in other words a messenger,
hired to deliver a message.
Get rid of your ego,
and the supreme titles,
and go back to delivering
the un-contaminated living message.

Not to interpret it
according to your opinion.

The Newfoundland Department of Employment, claimed a boat owner wasn't paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent to Burin to investigate him.

Gov’t Agent: "I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them".



Boat Owner: "Well, there's Clarence, my hired hand, he's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board. Then there's the mentally challenged guy. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of Lamb's rum and a dozen Labatt Lite every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also gets to sleep with my wife occasionally".



Gov’t Agent: "That's the guy I want to talk to - the mentally challenged one".



Boat Owner: "That'll be me. What'd you want to know?"

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

What's the difference
between Kings and Presidents?
In the old days we had Kings
ruling over us controlling
everything in our lives.
So we broke away and became sovereign citizens and we elected spokesman for Presidents to represent us in the world.
They now make executive decisions or orders to bypass our Congress,
so that we do not have easy access to these new laws.
Then they spring these laws on us and say ignorance of the law is no excuse.
Is that the definition of a tyrant?

Who are you?

Do you breathe to prove that you live?

I answer no.

Do you live because you breathe?
Answer yes.
Does breathing give you personal value or are you valuable because of your person?

The one who gave you life is the one who gives you value.
Your value is in His eyes, not yours.
It is the trusting in Him
that makes the who of man,
who you are, what you are, the beauty of you, the real person that you are.

TRUTH IS SUBSTANCE
(in other words it is eternal)

LIES are found in the five senses,
your taste, your touch, your smell,
your seeing your hearing,


Your emotions follow your heart which are all connecteted to your five sences.

These are all good in their place,
but they have no substance,
they have no foundation.

MANS KNOWLEDGE can only come from these five senses.
These are all changing and they are all only temporal.
That which is seen is temporary,
but that which is not seen is eternal.

So the question is:
Where do you find truth which has substance?

How about checking your gut intuition as to where truth is?

Why should I answer the question,
when you already know the answer?

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

God is only hindered by your lack of desire to learn!

God's perfect number is seven,
so the answer is
Matthew 7 verse 7

"Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:"

and Matthew chapter 6 verse 33
"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you."

SO! Let's say you want to start a new business,
and you aspire to do great and mighty things,
you're waiting for the right time or finances.
What are you waiting for?
What is in your hand!
Don't despise the day of small beginnings.
LET'S LOOK
Clearly it’s what you do –
not when you do it –
that really counts.
As Richard Bach once said,
“Here is the test
to determine
whether your mission on earth is finished:
If you’re alive, it isn’t.”
Consider this list
of international heroes
of all ages
who discovered their passion
and did not allow circumstances
to hold them back.

At age 7…Mozart wrote his first symphony.
At 14…country singer LeAnn Rimes won her first two Grammy awards.
At 16…swimmer Shane Gould won three Olympic Gold medals.
At 17…Joan of Arc led an Army in defense of France.
At 20…Debb Fields founded Mrs. Fields cookie company.
At 21…Fred DeLuca co-founded Subway with just $1,000 in the bank.
At 43…John F. Kennedy ran for the U.S. Presidency, and won.
At 45…boxer George Foreman regained the heavyweight championship of the world.
At 45…Mary Kay ash founded Mary Kay cosmetics with a $5,000 investment from her son.
At 46…Jack Nicklaus won his sixth Masters tournament.
At 54…jockey Willie Shoemaker won the Kentucky Derby.
At 57…Ray Kroc founded MacDonald’s
At 62…Colonel Sanders devoted himself to Kentucky Fried Chicken.
At 78…Grandma Moses started painting and was still participating in one-woman art shows well into her nineties.
At 83…architect Frank Lloyd Wright was asked which of his masterpieces was the best. “My next one,” he said.
At 84…Titan painted his famous “Allegory of the Battle of Lepanto
At 86…Ruth Rothfarb ran the Boston Marathon in just over five hours.
“You lose a lot of speed between 80 and 86,” she joked.
On his 104th birthday…Cal Evans was interviewed by a Denver reporter.
“Have you lived in Denver all your life?”
asked the reporter.
Cal laughed and replied,
“Not yet, Sonny.”

SIN A GOG

Hi would you like to come to visit at the local morgue,
we are having special meetings.

No! I was raised by one of them
I went three and four and maybe 5 times a week,
they CONTINUED to inform me
of how lacking and rotten I was
and so I work hard at being just like all of them.
The more I looked like them and received their praise
the dirtier I saw myself to be in my hypocrisy.
I also saw that none of them really believed
any of that stuff in their handbook,
and none of them really wanted to die to themselves,
at least not right now.

So it seems better at the moment to be thankful
for the life that I have been given
and to focus on the One who has given me
life and breath for this moment.
I thought it might be better to read the handbook
and become more acquainted with the author who wrote the handbook.

The light at the end of the tunnel is not an illusion,
the tunnel is the illusion.
This life we live is only three score and ten give or take a few.
But you started eternity the day you were born.
So now that you have a choice,
ie. free will,
what will you do with it?
After all,
life is a bus stop;
you choose the bus and the destination,
this life is the illusion.
Eternity is reality!

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

The tunnel is the illusion.
Now be silent.
Let the One who creates the words speak.
He made the door,
He made the lock,
He also made the key.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

The light at the end of the tunnel
is not an illusion.

The tunnel is.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Sometimes while being a thousand miles away from home you are closer to home than when you are having dinner with the family.

So let's be thankful for the little time that we have.

Who knows what tomorrow may bring.

Rich Dad Poor Dad.

The poor father works with his son on an old car.
The boys imagination and testosterone pushes him on-words towards this great love,
his first car.
With great imagination and vision,
the more the boy
moves forward in time, he takes his first step on the moon.

The Rich Dad is working hard to provide all those things for his boy that he did not have when he was a young man.

The father says I want it to be easier for my boy than it was for me.
So the father buys his son
a brand new car
and pays for his college
where the boy learns
entitlement, share the wealth,
the attitude of Robin Hood,
take from the rich
give to the poor,
pleasure, amusement, drugs,
free love.

As the boy makes his first slippery step into the gutter

The father says what went wrong I gave him everything,
everything but my time.

Life is the search for a treasure

 


   

  

 

 

Life is the search for a treasure

To be held for eternity
A treasure that multiplies
Only in your willingness to
Give it away.

My great quest in life is
This mysterious treasure.

As I was moving through the
Sea of humanity,
I come up on great orators
spouting dark secrets of their wisdom,
from a pulpit of ignorance.

You might say they are Beautiful Vessels,
appearing to hold vast treasures of cargo.

ALASS, -- upon closer inspection I find their holds
filled with emptiness and perishables,
Nothing of substance! !

In my travels I came upon an old weathered ship
moored close to a floundering vessel.
As I sailed closer to inspect,
I found this old weathered ship having no beauty,
was sharing of his life-giving treasure
to help the floundering craft.

The moral of this story is:
DON’T JUDGE THE VESSEL
BY ITS OUTWARD APPEARANCE.
THE FACT IS,
the reason this ship stopped to help
is because at one time it was floundering too.

At closer look, I found this craft was sharing the very TREASURE!
that I was looking for all the time,

It was the treasure called:
TRUTH

    

 
LIFE

 


   

  

 

 

LIFE

Don't be afraid of dying.
Be afraid of living the unlived life.

It's not necessary to live forever,
you just need to learn
how to live for today
being content with
that which you have,
and forever will
take care of its self .

Being thankful lasts forever

JUST A THOUGHT.

 


   

  

 

 

JUST A THOUGHT.

Very few of us are able to pick up a brush and paint a masterpiece for all to admire.
But at the same time we all have elevated ourselves to be critiques or judges.
For instance I like this!
Or, I don't like that!
and yet,
if we found a scrap of paper with Michael Angelo
or Leonardo da Vinci etchings,
we would guard or cherish that scrap of paper because we knew who the artist was that painted it.

How is it? that I find myself doing or elevating myself to criticize or judge others.
After all, who is it that created that person in His own image.
Yes!! I know that person made poor choices and is not so lovely,
BUT WHO AM I TO JUDGE.
Have I not made poor decisions also.
I suppose I could spare a little grace.

From out of a bed of infirmity4010

 


   

  

 

 

From out of a bed of infirmity'
at the High Noon of my life,
I was informed of your conception,
the weight of responsibility lies
heavy on my shoulders.
The question from the doctor,
to choose life or death,
freedom or responsibility.

I was reminded by an old Mexican lady,
every child comes with a loaf of bread under its arm.

Today I stand,
at the twilight of time.
I look back,
and from the first day,
the Sun shawn
upon your beautiful face_____till now, you have truly been the joy of my life.
Love Dad .

Why The Now?

No Crystal Cathedral!
No Church with a Steeple!
BUT ON A SEA OF GLASS
The Sun stoops low
to passionately caress his beloved horizon,
Her body trembles with adoration,
receiving his kiss with a blush of fire
in her cheeks.

I STOP to realize, but WHY?
I am indeed this Temple of God,
Crafted by His own hands,
for this very moment was made for me!
For Him to show His love
and acceptance of my being.

BE THE MAN
I have talked about spouting words of wisdom from a pulpit of ignorance,
My thoughts go back to the question,

WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?

Invariably the person will say well! We believe?!, That's not what I asked!
THE QUESTION WAS WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE.
Most people would rather ignorantly fight for what their group believes, without giving one hour to study to know what I, MYSELF, ME , this is what I BELIEVE .
Can you see now why so many of us are nothing but sheep following ignorant leaders.

Your Life lived!4004

 


   

  

 

 

Your Life lived!


If you could go back to change those things,
that you are not proud of,
would you?
If you could,
and did change those things.
Would you be the man,
of leadership and commitment
that you are today?
In many cases,
it is your mistakes of the past,
that has made you
the strong man of today.
Sometimes God uses a Crooked Stick
to draw a straight line.
Don't hide your past mistakes,
be a father,
i.e. be a patriarch,
be a leader.

The rewards in life
are not compiled by
the things you did right,
but by how you dealt with
the things you did wrong.

    

 
YOU ARE MEANT TO BE SALT

 


   

  

 

 

S.D.YOU ARE MEANT TO BE SALT

Salt may add flavor,
Salt may encourage thirst,
Salt will sting a wound,
but encourage healing.

But that is not the true work of salt.
Salt is meant to be a preservative.

As an old seaman I have become salty.
My reason for living now is
to preserve the good
that I have found in this life,
and then to pass it on to you.

I am old enough so that
I don't give a damn
what other self-righteous intellectuals
say or think that I should do.
I do not owe them anything I don't look to them for approval.
I have lived my imperfect life and suffered,
learning right from wrong.
(good from bad)

My job now is to preserve the good
and to leave a map for those who follow

    

 
Who are you?

 


   

  

 

 

Who are you?

Do you breathe to prove that you live?

I answer no.

Do you live because you breathe?
Answer yes.
Does breathing give you personal value or are you valuable because of your person?

The one who gave you life is the one who gives you value.
Your value is in His eyes, not yours.
It is the trusting in Him
that makes the who of man,
who you are, what you are, the beauty of you, the real person that you are.

We say I love my kids.

I want them to have
what I didn't have,
I don't want them to have it as hard as it was for me.

Are you sure you are not stealing from them with your thoughts of love.

Is it possible that your hard times actually made you
the Man of strength
and integrity that you are.
The man with backbone
willing to fight for principal,
a love for your country
and patriotism .

Is it possible that those
hard times and hard work
gave you the drive
to actually be the
man that you are today.

Are you sure that by buying your children things that you did not have is truly showing them love by not allowing them the same privilege that you had by working for what they get .

Where do you think entitlement comes from.
Hatred for the authority, are these the same kids that are now running the country and teaching a communistic attitude,
taking from the rich
giving to the poor.

Fathers, they learned it from you. They think you are the rich and they are the poor, deserving what you have worked for.

    

 
TRIP TO WASHINGTON DC

 


   

  

 

 

TRIP TO WASHINGTON DC


As I boarded the plane I noticed how much the air lines had scaled back,
to conserve on cost.
Instead of a 747 or a DC nine I found myself boarding an oversized VW bus with wings attached and two red fire-extinguishers
duct-taped to the back for jet engines.
With nothing in my hands
I had to scoot down the aisle sideways
to get to my seat,
there it was; 11b,
I sat down and buckled up as I noticed
what everyone else was doing,
waiting to go who knows where.
Then that familiar voice came over the speaker, good morning ladies and gentlemen we are happy to welcome you aboard flight number double 007,
we would like to remind you of the
Ten Commandments, in other words
rules and regulations,
of the airlines.
As she droned on with this memorized speech you could see she was just going through the motions and really didn't give a damn, this is what she had to do in order to make a living.
I noticed that all the people were bussying themselvs doing whatever they needed to do,
and this dribble was just part of what one must endure in order to get to wherever they were going.
Suddenly it struck me!
This is like it is as we go to church.
We show up at church and go through the motions, doing what ever everyone else is doing in hopes of getting to wherever it is they think they are going.

AS THE OLD SAYING GOES:
I wish you were hot or cold but because you are indifferent
your constitutional liberties and freedoms
are being ripped away by
self-serving
POLITICIANS.

    

 
The human brain

 


   

  

 

 

The human brain is never more active and fully in use as it is in the first 6 months of its life.
you may say
it is firing on all 8 cylinders,
taste, touch, smell, here,
also fear,
safety or loving experience.

The whole world is at its becon call and he has arrived
in the whole world
bubbles down to him
until he discovers rejection negative fear black cold pain then he starts to pull back into himself his brain now works on self preservation instead of in exploring this new world.

    

 
Teaching Liberty vs Fear3001

 


   

  

 

 

Teaching Liberty vs Fear

Of all the things we learn why do we start out teaching our newborn children fear?
Don't do this, don't do that,
be careful you will get hurt,
watch out,
with all negative.
and then we expect positive results.

Why is the news on the radio and the television only news when it is bad news.

why not start out with Liberty, with responsibility, self control, integrity, ramifications of your decisions.

Do you think that this would encourage leadership?
After all how has the other been working for you?

51% of us are receiving some kind of government handouts and that's called liberty?
Those who make 20 to 30 K per year, 70% of their children make more.
Those who make 100 K to 200 K per year, 70 percent of their kids make less.
The question is why.

TODAY!

I met a beautiful family.
Three years ago they left their homeland and moved to America.
Their own country was given
freedom liberty 20 years ago
but the people could not deal with the Liberty
that demands RESPONSIBILITY.

They all seemed to rather live under
the hand of strong powerful government
who controlled their day to day lives
as long as they had food and shelter.

This reminds me of that people
under slavery for 400 years
miraculously set free
and given a land flowing with milk and honey,
but NO they could not handle
Liberty, responsibility, self-reliance,
They would rather
have a king to rule over them
like the other dictator governments of that day
because of their lack of self discipline
it seemed easier to let the government provide
and they could blame the governments
rather than take responsibility for their own actions.
Today we see the same thing happening in our country
and worst of all it is happening in our Churches,
people would rather live under the hard law and call it grace,
instead of taking liberties that require responsibility, self discipline, integrity and ramifications of decisions made.

    

 
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT4038

 


   

  

 

 

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

Our quest for freedom in life.
Begins with the desire to have control over one's OWN life
But ultimately we are inclined to want to control others instead of self-control.
We are all natural slaves to the
fear of Mr death,
who comes to us all.
And yet we will not
admit this fear
or control over our lives
so we seek to control others
in the name of helping them,
all the time having a secret agenda.
This builds our ego
to show our-self how good
and how free we are.
But ultimately Mr death comes
to us all to deliver us
to the destination of our own choosing
while in this life.

But the Lord of life and liberty shall come to relieve him of his duties and
He will rule and reign over ALL,
both life and death
this is then, true freedom.. The thief comes only to steal, and to kill,
and to destroy:
BUT I AM come that they might have life, and that they might have it
ABUNDANTLY .
John 10:10

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Total freedom without some stipulation
is not freedom.
It cannot be understood as freedom
because you do not have the liberty to choose.
The only one who understands
what true freedom is;
is the one who had it,
taken away
from him.
Without any way to get it back.
So be content with what you have in your hand,
and strive to pass it on,
to those who come after you.

Except a kernel of corn ,
fall into the ground and dye,
it will not reproduce in abundance.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time
with the blood of patriots & tyrants.
It is it's natural manure.
(Thomas Jefferson)

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

This Old House

It seems like only yesterday
all those dreams and plans,
but time marches on,
that which is built up in time,
comes to nothing,
and somehow
we all just leave a mark.
A shadow.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

There was a very rich young man and a beggar.
As time went on the two became very close friends.
One day as the old beggar passed by the rich man's house,
he found that the young man had died.
So in his pain and respect for his friend, he went home and painted with watercolors a picture likeness of the young rich man.

When the old man completed the picture he took it to the young man's father's house.
The doorman answered and the old beggar said, your master's son was very special to me, when I heard that he had died I painted this picture of him, would you please give it to his father?
The doorman said yeah okay, he took it in the house and laid it down.
Later the doorman said to the Father, by the way your son had befriended an old beggar.
This is the watercolor painting he did of your son.
The father was a collector of very expensive paintings which he had gathered all over the world.
And so when he received this watercolor painting, nothing more was said.
Years passed and the father died. They held an auction for his art collection.
People from all over the world came to buy some of these expensive paintings.
The beggar heard that there was going to be an auction for the paintings, and he was wondering is it possible that the father had kept his watercolor painting of the son.
He thought if he could find some clothes he might be able to sit in the auction room.
The day came and people from all over the world were standing at the door waiting for the door to open.
The auctioneer started the bidding.
He said the first picture to be bid on is this water color painting, but nobody bid on it.
The poor man thought to himself, I've got a few pennies maybe I can buy it and so the auctioneer said sold.
Everyone was so relieved they got rid of this ragged old watercolor painting.
They were now happy to start with all of the rich paintings.
The auctioneer said:
"In the will it says that the person who buys the very first painting which is this watercolor painting, should receive everything,
today's auction is closed."

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

If God created you
then you are His to do as He pleases,
so quit complaining.

It pleased Him
to give you total liberty
to choose whatever you wanted!
So who is in control
you or Him?

Do you think it would cramp your style
to acknowledge Him
and thank Him,
when you get up in the morning?

He may give you some good direction.

What a concept!

As the quote goes,
"In all thy ways acknowledge Him
and He will direct your path way."

On the other hand
you may believe like Darwin,
So go ahead and monkey around.
O here's a banana for your kid.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Life's question.

What will you be when you grow up?


Or I'll be happy when?

In all your plans for the future
take time to pause to be thankful
for the moment!

The reason our spiritual lives are so dull or insipid is because we worship a God of the future.

Example:
When I die I am going to go to Heaven or in the sweet by and by everything is going to be fine.

As the saying goes,
Hope deferred makes the heart sick.

God is a God of the now.
I am that I am.

So the question is:
How RELEVENT? Is your God?

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

True liberty and freedom come with responsibility!

To think you can sleep every night with out taking your turn at guard duty is folly.

Parents
your children are your ward,
there is a social undertow that intends to drag them down.

Fellow Americans,
your liberty is your responsibility.

Again there is a political undertow to bring you into captivity,

PASSIVITY IS YOUR
GREATEST ENEMYComfort weakens a man.

Self preservation hinders expansion.

Security is mans worst enemy.

It is better to suffer the pain of want, with hope, than to have no want at all.

There is something fantastic about the discomfort and challenge of this life .

I think that is what true life is all about.

"I also said, wives obey your husband and seeing that you are my bride you should look at yourself first and see what I have to put up with in you.

So quit your bitching."

Proper Communication
THE PREACHER PREACHES
BUT WHAT IS THE DISPOSITION
OF THE HEARER
Old fisherman is working on his boat.
he said to the young man with him:
quickly go to the oar house
and get me an oar.
The young man ran
he came back shortly
with a young lady.






Proper communication
The old fishermen said
I know you think you understand
what you thought I said,
but I am Not sure that you realize
that what you heard is
what I really meant.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 



MERCY IS FOR THE LIVING
JUSTICE IS FOR THE DEAD

Can you imagine in eternity how remarkably clear your mind is going to be and how you are going to be able to remember every opportunity and every moment that you had to accept Christ as your Savior, and now you sit there and over and over and over and over you hear the denial,
your rejection of His grace and His mercy.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

A DOG AND HIS MASTER

They grow together in trust and respect,
this develops into a deep love affair.

I believe God went down to the earthly dog pound,
and at great expense, paid for the release of all of the imprisoned dogs,
so that He could pick you and me to have as this relationship with him.

But because of our pride and expectations,
we refuse to submit to his tutelage, and then we call him an old ogre or killjoy.
Is that the pot calling the kettle black,
oh no.
That saying is not correct here!
That would make me equal with God.

But it seems that my pride has already done that !.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

A great quote was born (11.13.1789).
On Friday 13 November, 1789, Benjamin Franklin penned a letter to Jean-Baptiste Leroy, a fellow inventor.
In it, he told Leroy that the U.S. Constitution had finally been completed. He wrote:
“Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in the world nothing can be said to be certain except death and taxes.”
The words have lived on — in a truncated version — and become one of Franklin’s most famous quotes.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Who am I?

The me I see
is the me I will be,
Maybe I should look at myself differently! ???

As a man thinks,
so is he.

The problem is,
no man thinketh,
they just follow.

0044 How time flies


It seems like only yesterday
and yet a hundred years ago!

In the far Canadian North, an old weatherbeaten Shack,
40 below zero,
outside the smoke piercing the sky
like upside-down icicles
the only thing to break
the deathly stillness
were the Northern Lights
as they exploded then danced across the sky.

There in this dingy drafting room waiting waiting waiting oh how much longer.

On the other side an old dresser!
Maybe something?
But nothing, except an old taterd book.

In exasperation
she threw it to the floor,
there it lay, sprawled open,
the words seemed to
leap off the wrinkled page.

To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven,
a time to be born a time to die.

Within only a few hours she gave birth February the first, 44.

I started my journey.

LIFE ON EARTH
IS MADE UP OF TIME

You can spend it-
You can waste it-
You can't save it.

Where would you store it?

You could invest it!

We are all given 24 hours a day,
So you have all the time you need to change your world.

As you ask for wisdom you will invest your time in that which is eternally substantial.

All else is vapid i.e. without meaning,
a simple puff of smoke
or candy floss.
At the end you will say,
if I only had more time.
If you did
what difference would that make?

    

 

 


 

  

 

 

10 years of caring,
but little or no change
And then something changed ,
A small bud 3 days later a blossom,
To only last 24. Hrs then gone.
I see life may sometimes be like that,
We are all. In this life for that one moment to glorify God.
We are all part of HIS POEM
AND MAYBE ONLY.
a small comma or accent,
But without that comma, the poem will not make sense.

    

 

 


 

  

 

 

There was a young man
Who was beyond his ability to pay his way out of poverty.

So daily he would labor behind his old horse and plow to eke out a living.

In time his loving adopting father with extreme expense and pain to himself delivered his adopted son out of debt paid in full.

To top it all off he gave him a new air condition tractor to plow the biggest fields.

The young man with great exuberance thanked his father.

But in his willful ignorance, he would polish his new tractor but refused to read the manual to learn how to use it.

Instead he went out daily with his old mule and plow.

All the time complaining about how his Rich father couldn't understand the trouble he is going through.

When all fails
READ THE MANUAL!

    

 

 


 

  

 

 

CREDIT CARD


The man who lives by the credit card

is likened to the fisherman

who sells his net on Friday night for a Party.

Then stands before a sea of fish on Monday,

with nothing to catch them with.

    

 

 

 

 


 

  

 

 

LIFE ON EARTH IS A RISK

The importance of thinking
and then making a calculated decision.

The road in life is splattered
with flat squirrels
that couldn't
or wouldn't
make a decision.

What's your problem?
Go Figure.

    

 

 


 

  

 

 

GRATITUDE VS ENTITLEMENT.


GRATITUDE IS AN ATTITUDE
that stimulates
good health and a sound mind.
And beside that if your gratitude is c on the Benevolent Creator of all things you have eternal life in His Kingdom.

ENTITLEMENT is animosity or strong hostility toward Authority leading to bitterness poor health and a negative mindset.
This will separate you from your Creator.


If you can't be thankful for what your mother has worked hard to put on the table.
why must she give you dessert
or a different food.
.
SHOULD YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER BE ANY DIFFERENT?


Parents when you yield to the complaints of your child,
you are saying I know better than God,
or you are just being lazy shirking your duties of being the parent.




    

 

 


 

  

 

 

ABSTINENCE

When are preservatives good for you.

Two young people
searching for a place to be alone
away from the maddening crowd .
In other words, mom and dad.
So out on a date in the car,
away from the house
and Mom and Dad.
Because they said we can't be in the house by our self.
We will only go out for donuts' they would say.
So they go out in the car with a big box of donuts.
But in the Box was one donut hole .
And they were told
you cannot eat or touch that donut hole
but it was the one they both wanted
extremely with great desire
to Taste and to enjoy.
How do you overcome this temptation?
Get out of the car and eat your Donuts
in the restaurant.

SAVE THAT LAST DONUT HOLE
FOR A SPECIAL DAY.
IT HAS PRESERVATIVES
AND IT WILL NOT SPOIL.




    

 

 


 

  

 

 

To clarify the law.

Is it a curse or is it a blessing?
To start let's look at the USA.
We have a constitution and also the law of the land of liberty and Freedom with responsibility.

Now if someone from outside of the country should climb over the wall without permission,
but obeys all the laws of the land perfectly is he now a lawful citizen of the United States?
No.
To be a lawful citizen you must be born in the USA,
or be adopted and vetted by or chosen by the government who wants all to come through the proper channels.

Now that you are a citizen,
are the laws of the land a blessing or a curse?
If as a citizen you break the law,
are you cast out of the country?
No, you are corrected and you are still a citizen,
but no matter how good you are,
if you come in illegally,
you are not a citizen and you will be deported.




    

 

 


 

  

 

 

Proper Migration.

Heaven was built for all who would come.
But heaven was built
with walls,
and only one door.
And above all '
a very stringent migration policy.

This door is the only door.
No one can come in
except they are vetted by the (doorkeeper), boarder control.

Jesus said
"I Am the way the truth and the life"
No one comes to the Father
except through Me.

Anyone who tries to come in by climbing over the wall is a thief and a robber and shall be cast out.

How far do you think you will get
with God by demanding grace while cursing His name?




    

 

 


 

  

 

 

A House Divided will fall.

When we look at the Dems,
we see an extreme diverse people
with only one thing in common,
each one of them are
looking for one thing
self-gratification
and yet unified in one thing,
their hatred for the Republican leader. Trump.

It's a good thing that Jesus said I will build my church and the Gates of Hell will not Prevail against it.
It will not destroy my church of safety.
He is like the United States Marine Corps.
He will accept all who will come,
but at the same time he is only looking, for a Few Good Men.

When we look at the Republicans,
those who with their mouth,
profess to be right and upstanding.
These same self-righteous Hypocrites
are like a bucket of crabs,
scrambling and climbing on each other,
and those who start to get to the top,
are immediately pulled down by those who are below.

If you think this is bad,
let's look at the self righteous leaders
of the Evangelical Church.
These are those who are
called to lead the lost to salvation,
but instead these damn double self-righteous leaders are too busy
ripping and judging their fellow teachers.

They are destroying the Fortress walls
of safety that they have been called to build.

    

 

 


 

  

 

 

A church isn't comprised of a building,
but of the people in that building.
Let us never forget that.
Some people get all emotional
and attached to a particular location,
but the church consists of
a body of believers
and in most cases non believers.
Did you know that the book of Revelation is the most avoided and least taught book of the Bible,
even in Protestant churches?
Wonder why that is?
How sad that is really because more than ever, the book of Revelation is more relevant to us now than ever before.

    

 

 


 

  

 

 


PEOPLE SAY,
GOD IS IN CONTROL?
Oh really!
Christians complain that
the USA is going to hell
in a handbasket.
My question is to them,
Who is carrying the baskets?
We the church are
THE responsible ONES.
BECAUSE we are not praying.

I looked for a man to stand in the gap,
BUT I FOUND NOT ONE.
(Ezek 22;30)

So God ----
Sent His Son.

    

 

 


 

  

 

 

CHAIN OF COMMAND.

The father has been placed
in a position
that in most cases
he has no experience,
because of his immaturity.
This is called leadership,
and so often
this moves into
dictatorship and Controal.

True leadership is
The Humbling position of servitude,
like Jesus washing dirty feet.

Husbands love your wife
as Christ loved the church,
and laid down his life for Her.

This does not mean
that the woman should
get any and everything
that she thinks is right,
and Rule and control the man.

We as the bride of Christ
are not here to control Jesus
and make him do
what we want Him to do.
After all
He is our provider for salvation.

WITHOUT HIM WE CAN
DO NOTHING.









    

 

 


   

  

 

 

What is so monotonously long,
and yet after it is all past'
it seems to have traveled so fast.
The answer,
everyday living

Marriage
HONEST COMUNICATION
WITHOUT EXPECTAIONS
between two opposing opposites,
is the oil or light
that exposes the imperfections
of our lives,
then helps to heal
causing the two
to BECOME one loving unit.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

Inheritance

Your GRAND FATHER has
just given you $1000000 Free of charge.
This money is at this moment in your bank account.
The question is, are you a millionaire? The answer is yes, BUT!
This money is useless to you if you don't make a withdrawal.
Is it necessary to call on Grandpa and ask him for money every time you need to write a check?
Or would it be better to Daily Show your gratitude for this awesome loving Father, who takes pleasure in giving you His kingdom.
Because he gave you all things, so that you would spread His Name of Love to the whole world.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

I'll be happy when?

In all your plans for the future
take time to pause to be thankful
for the moment!

The reason our spiritual lives are so dull or insipid is because we worship a God of the future.

Example:
When I die I am going to go to Heaven or in the sweet by and by everything is going to be fine.

As the saying goes,
Hope deferred makes the heart sick.

God is a God of the now.
I am that I am.

So the question,:
do you worship a god of the future
or The God of the now?

    

 

 


  

  

 

 

Sometimes while being a thousand miles away from home you are closer to home than when you are having dinner with the family. So let's be thankful for the little time that we have. Who knows what tomorrow may bring.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

The power and mistique of a woman.

Is that which draws a man to her side, as a partner as an equal as the necessity in life.

Man was made to be
the bulldozer,
the truck,
the tractor,
the protecting cargo box for a precious crystal treasure.

The crystal vase was to be
the music,
the center of all that is precious in the man's life
everything he would work for,
strive to conquer.

Her soft and calm continents is what his delight is to come home to.

Her art in preparing and setting the table is as sensual to him as the smell and the beauty of her appearance.

    

 

 


   

  

 

 

GUIDING SPIRITS

When the path of life becomes
hard and clouded
and your moccasins
are wearing thin.

Go forth oh brave one,
but one step at a time.

The right steps
are always before you
and the hard ones
will become reachable
with fewer mistakes
when tempered in time.

    

 

 


  

  

 

 

How time flies


Time or life is like a roll of toilet paper,
we all get only one roll.

For a child every minute is like an eternity,
it seems their hopes and dreams are so far out of sight time stands still.

And now as an old man looking back it seems like sitting down to a big job and then seeing an empty roll.

Where did it all go?

Maybe I should have been more conservative.

    

 

 


  

 

 

People may say
if nothing is horrific
life is terrific!

The only men of character
are those
who have learned
to make friends with pain and suffering,

Pain is one of your
most Faithful Friends.

The most wealthy productive people, are those who have learned to respect discomfort or pain along with failure!

Because pain and discomfort,
are a result of a disciplined life!
Producing
Eternal wealth and
ETERNAL JOY.

On the other hand
pleasure and comfort will lead to poverty and ultimate destruction.

    

 

 


  

 

 

Critical Thinking 101
Church and political meetings,
Are the place you will find dishonest sinners.
The one is ashamed of his dirty self
and hopes you will not see it.
The other is proud of his dirty self,
with intent to spring it on you later.
One of them has hope,
guests who?
So learn to sin with integrity.
Be who you are,
with an honest heart
to listen and learn.
Don't jump because some well dressed fool says
he has the answers to life.
He is probably trying to gain control over you.
This is critical thinking 101.
WHAT A CONCEPT!

    

 

 


  

 

 

I had a minute
with 60 seconds in it

I didn't seek it
I didn't choose it.
I have the now that I might use it.

I found in life
and all the amusements,
so often then that I refused it.

Now time is past
and I look back to see
the waist in all its lack,
the precious time in
how I abused it.

I pray for grace
in this right now
that I may choose it.

Hebrews 3:12 -15

    

 

 


  

 

 

A body in motion tends to stay in motion.
A body at rest
tends to rest in peace.

The good book says
let us labor to enter into His rest.

While living on this Earth You Will
at all times be in conflict.

If you give up you will fail!

But in trust and Thanksgiving
for all of this struggle,
you will be laboring
to enter into His rest.

He is faithful to give you peace in the middle of this day of turmoil,
with rest for today
and eternal rest as
we continue persevering in faith to the end.

    

 

 


  

 

 

Very often we are asked how do you FEEL?

or at other times we dwell on our emotions good or bad.

We may meditate on our fears of things to come, in most cases they never manifest.

These thoughts or feelings, or emotions are all superficial,
THY HAVE NO SUBSTANCE

To answer this problem we must take control of all of these thoughts emotions and fears by casting them down and think of what is substantially real with an attitude of thankfulness whatever is good whatever is honest whatever is pure whatever is lovely think on these things

II Cor. 10:4 and 5
Phil.4:8

    

 

 


  

 

 

The American dream


Fellow Americans
Don't give up on your dreams!

Just go back to sleep as you were or watch football or baseball.

And forget about your responsibilities of voting and being a true American

YOU WILL GET THE NIGHTMARE THAT YOU DESERVE !!!!!!

    

 

 


  

 

 

The young man goes to the gym with great joy to struggle against the heavy weights
and comes out exhausted
and filled with joy for the exercise.

James 1 verse 1

Take joy in the tribulations because they will bring about patience .

Troubles

You have some great opportunities
disguised by great problems
you will come through Victorious
as you continue to get up
every time you are knocked down,
do not quit.

Follow his example

He learned obedience and victory through the things that He suffered.

The good man will will fall seven times but he will get up he will be victorious.

    

 

 


  

 

 

Man is the perfect definition of an
ENIGMA

At one moment he would boast that he is created in the image of God
In the same breath he would say
there is no God.
And then he would say
I am God.

His next breath would be to say
he was Evolved
over a period of millions of years
his ancestors are the monkeys.

THE TRUTH IS!

Man was created perfect
totally uncomplicated and understandable to his Creator
with a free will.

It is man that created the Enigma
then lifted his finger to God
and said
what have you done
where is my welfare check
and why is it not bigger?

    

 

 


  

 

 

What is time



Time is the present,
it is the place we live in;
in this vast expanse
of the

PAST and the FUTURE.

    

 

 


  

 

 

There is nothing greater,
than the love of God
for His Creation.

After making man,
He commanded him
to demonstrate God's sovereignty
and care for His Creation.

But how could He show His love
to the helpless child?

So he created a mother!
And said to her,
"You are my gift to all mankind,
to manifest
My Grace,
My Love
and
My Mercy."
to the weak and needy."

Take courage!
Don't become weary in well-doing.

Happy Mother's Day.

    

 

 


  

 

 

The sailor has always been accused of having a girl in every port.

I suppose I am no different, I was always told to be like Jesus, just love them all.
After a lifetime of sailing the seven seas, I found I could not pick only one.
I was able to settle on or restrict myself to four beautiful ladies,
To be the love of my life. In them I found complete satisfaction.

The first one is so sweet and tender when I see myself as wretched and evil as I truly am.

The second one has taught me true commitment to stand strong in the face of adversity.

The third one gives me vision to go on to reach for the moon.

The fourth one truly fills my life as I move through this world of need.

The names of these four loves of my life are as follows,
Grace, Faith, Hope and Charity
These are the loves of my life.

    

 

 


  

 

 

You can take a pig out of the pen,

but you cannot take the pen out of the pig.

You may put lipstick on a pig,
but he is still a pig.

Change must start in the heart,
But the heart is deceitful.
Who can know it?

Real change for help must come from outside of one's self.

The only thing
that can come from inside is the understanding of
THE NEED.

    

 

 


  

 

 

Unto each man is given the measure of faith.

Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.

We were all given free will.
Yes we had instructors,
but it is still your responsibility
to sort it all out,
and look up for answers.

Why up??

Because you started on the bottom.
You started with absolutely no knowledge only a god-given intuition to look up.

So now you need a fool to teach you that there is no God.

    

 

 

  

 

 

Material now versus ultimate goal.
i.e.bus stop.



When we are faced with an eternal future!

Why are we so preoccupied with the temporal excitement of now?

To gather goods and expensive things of pleasure and comfort,
while standing at a bus stop, only to leave it all behind when the bus comes.

Where is the wisdom in that?

Should you be comfortable and have pleasure in this life?
Yes as much as you can.

But remember it is all only passing,
you must hold to all of these things loosely.

Don't let these things master you and miss your ultimate goal.

 

 


  

 

 

Fellow Americans

It is said that we are today
a greatly divided country.

We are either left or right.

We are not divided ,
we are just
too different arms of the same body,
one body of Americans

As a person on the Right, I have a great propensity to become a self-righteous bastard.

Bastard means illegitimate,
and I consider myself
to be absolutely right.
I am in fact not right,
i'm illegitimate in my position
because I refuse to give someone else the respect to listen to him.
I am only trying to push my own opinion or morality on the other person.

As a person on the left
I will become self-c,
looking to get something for nothing.
I will vote for my best interest,
not for the good of the country.

As previously said we are one body of Americans.

We are striving for liberty for all to live with freedom along with responsibility.

For this to happen we on the right hand need the opposition of the left hand to come together to lift this heavy load of Liberty up for the whole world to see.

This will take left and right with opposing opinion, but at all times with respect for the opposing side
and the opposing opinion.

We are not divided we need both sides to do the work ahead of us.

    

 

 


  

 

 

Communism or Progressive-ism

These two will propose to
dictate a plan of peace.
The people will sell their soul for peace, which is no peace.
It is cessation of aggression
at the cost of freedom.

A great man once said if I have to choose between righteousness and peace,
I will choose righteousness.
This is doing what is right,
and fight for liberty.

    

 

 


  

 

 

When a farmer goes out in the spring to plant a new crop.
Is it possible that he would have some bad seed in with his good seed?

So did he with intent purposely plant Bad Seed with his crop of good seeds?

No he did it ignorantly.

Because when he went to the store to buy his seed, he got some bad seed with the good seed.

So when you go to Seminary school to get seed in order to preach you must be very careful to see that you are getting good seed only,
that would be the word of God the pure word of God.

Jesus said, "You preach the traditions of man and make the word of God ineffective.

    

 

 


  

 

 

There was a young man
Who was beyond his ability to pay his way out of poverty.

So daily he would labor behind his old horse and plow to eke out a living.

In time his loving adopting father with extreme expense and pain to himself delivered his adopted son out of debt paid in full.

To top it all off he gave him a new air condition tractor to plow the biggest fields.

The young man with great exuberance thanked his father.

But in his willful ignorance, he would polish his new tractor but refused to read the manual to learn how to use it.

Instead he went out daily with his old mule and plow.

All the time complaining about how his Rich father couldn't understand the trouble he is going through.

When all fails
READ THE MANUAL!

    

 

 


  

 

 

Father
No greater aspiration
can one have
than to dye fighting,
with sword in hand
for the liberty of those he loves.

John 15:13

    

 

 


  

 

 

Life is the search for a treasure

To be held for eternity
A treasure that multiplies
Only in your willingness to
Give it away.

My great quest in life is
This mysterious treasure.

As I was moving through the
Sea of humanity,
I come up on great orators
spouting dark secrets of their wisdom,
from a pulpit of ignorance.

You might say they are Beautiful Vessels,
appearing to hold vast treasures of cargo.

ALASS, -- upon closer inspection I find their holds
filled with emptiness and perishables,
Nothing of substance! !

In my travels I came upon an old weathered ship
moored close to a floundering vessel.
As I sailed closer to inspect,
I found this old weathered ship having no beauty,
was sharing of his life-giving treasure
to help the floundering craft.

The moral of this story is:
DON’T JUDGE THE VESSEL
BY ITS OUTWARD APPEARANCE.
THE FACT IS,
the reason this ship stopped to help
is because at one time it was floundering too.

At closer look, I found this craft was sharing the very TREASURE!
that I was looking for all the time,

It was the treasure called:
TRUTH

 

 


 

  

 

 


Do you think you can handle this one?

A DEEPER THOUGHT

O how happy, is the man, who during the short instant of his life seeks to anticipate that divine vision, which he is so soon to possess by experience!
This is true wisdom,
not to wait for the end
until knowing that end,
but look to the end in the beginning of the course, and enter upon it, not with so many doubts whether we have attained the end, but with the security of attaining it.
Consider then,
with what disposition must be held,
who at the beginning of a race,
see a great prize, which they can attain
BY HOLDING THE COURSE,
WITH GREAT DILIGENCE.

(1 Corinthians 9:24)

    

 

 


 

  

 

 



An old man was complaining about how tardy his wife was.
He said:
If there was no such thing as time,
she would still be late.

    

 

 


 

  

 

 

The Ghost Ship
I will never know
and neither will you,
of the life we didn't choose.
We'll only know that whatever
that sister life was,
it was important and beautiful
but not for us.
It was that ghost ship
that didn't carry us through.
So there's nothing to do but salute it
from the shore.

author
Cheryl Strayed

This is that dream
that you have brooded over never being able to let it go,
but as you mature
you are finally able
to release this dream or pacifier and move on.

After all,
It was only a beautiful dream.
