A Brighter Tomorrow

Always keep in mind there is going to be a brighter tomorrow.

They say it takes all kinds to make a world

Not all in this world are nice to us

Some want to take us down before we have time to blossom

They would stomp upon us in the hope of putting out light out

Other would try to tear us apart by the words that fall off their tongues

Yes some even try to bury us alive way before our time

Still other would prefer to take us out roots and all so we are no longer a memory

I am sure many of us have met that kind before today but always remember that you will still be blossoming when they are long gone

No matter how folks treat you never allow your heart to become hardened.

All these thoughts passed my mind as I was looking out my window today and saw a delight sight of a plant which was here prior to out arrival

I took the time to smile and grab my camera and collect a few photos before the season was finished and while doing so was amazed at how some of us we can often relate; or compare our own lives to the sights and sounds of today’s episode

Years of torment dishes out by others cannot take from us the joy we hold in our hearts unless we are willing to allow them to do so.

There nothing better that to see living proof of these words I speak of here and I am sure others have their stories to tell as much as have mine.

Nature in all her glory and majesty also has times that seem as if it’s the end of the road of life , then along comes a second chance to simply be and to shine.

Floods and fires will never take away the seed that’s planted in good souls of the hearts of men either.

We were all created to be a living part of this universe and to shine a light and sweet perfume for others to be blessed by.

Some fail taking wrong turns and end up not only on a path of self destruction; their actions also have consequences which can hurt and herm those around them.

Stay on the right path of truth and live and be that beacon, when its needed on a dark and stormy night when the ships carrying good folks needs something to focus upon.

Lives which are saved by our behavior is the greatest reward.

Look and see what’s going on around you and find something to bring some joy to an otherwise dull moment on life and the heart will be found to be still beating inside of the body, spreading sweet perfume and color – we don’t have to know who has received, we just have to live the kindness.

Mountains Display Autumns Splendor

 Mountains Display Autumns Splendor and we marvel at the beautiful sights that only come to us once autumn season of the year.    

 

Visiting the quiet, peaceful surrounds of the distant mountains brings its own rewards where the Mountains Display Autumns Splendor of glorious painted leaves, along with carpet of colors beneath ones feet.

We who are city folks often seek a tree change after the heat of the summer season. We become tourists who visit the far away little towns up in the mountains.

Weekends are often enjoyed away from everyday city life at home. A place to stroll around and take photos, enjoy the cafes and their atmosphere that one can only find by being there.

Dreaming of the wonders of autumn as around becomes a wondrous sight of every imaginable color.

A change of pace for the everyday hustle and bustle of city life brings much refreshment the soul.

It’s a time to slow down and enjoy the moments while we stand in awe of heavens colors painted so delicately upon very leaf before it falls.

Yes some places call the season fall and it’s obvious as to why they do so.

Each one of us has a season we love best.

For some of us it’s not a hard choice to make for others it’s a matter of enjoying the one we are living in.

Were it not for the change of seasons we would not be so inclined to enjoy the moments that each one brings to our attention and every year that passes we marvel once more at the joys and blessings we see all around us.

There is no doubt that the creator knew how to capture out attention as we pass form one quarter of the year to the next.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

Bread And Fish

Bread And Fish

A relationship,  even in prison they have bread.

Bread and fish are to be given away.

Prosperity, hope, and vision;

Opportunity.

These places give me hope – it gives me life.

Fish relationships are ones that prosper.

They challenge you to get out of the comfort zone.

It’s hard to catch a fish; you need nets, hooks, etc.

Fish in a relationship bring blessings in to your life.

Are you going through a struggle?

Why are you disquieted on my soul?

Put your hope in God.

We are to be the head not the tail.

People come to pull us down, disturb us.

Take courage.

Stand when all looks hopeless.

Be placed upon the solid rock of Christ and stand.

Yes; even Jesus cried when He stood at Lazarus grave of death, then he commanded him to come forth and life came back to Lazarus and he walked free from that grave of death.

No stone can hold you, no rock can stay where it’s been placed when Jesus turns up and commands it to move away and allow life to come forth.

Christmas Celebrations

 Christmas Celebrations

Today I came across another’s blog and enjoyed the read and it reminded me of my own thoughts many times around .

What’s all the fuss and bother about really?

After all its Christmas Celebrations isn’t it a time for rejoicing?

Is it a reminder of the time back then when all wasn’t so bright and cheery?

Are we celebrating a birth the way we were taught to down the ages, according to our own culture, and grandparents who passed their traditions down to us?

Yes while reading that article it brought to mind many questions yet it’s not going to prevent me celebrating the way I do at Christmas time.

There will be gifts giving, and there will be songs sung.

There will be food to eat and friends and family to greet for some of us only get together at holiday times.

Will these celebrations be in the house?

Not if I can help it, we go to the river and sleep in tents and enjoy fishing there, and cooking on the campfire.

Yes we do all that and we also take with us the musical instruments to bring some added joy to the moments of quiet times around the campfire.

We recall the angels singing on high, as the bible says …thIPON2FLH

The three wise men who travelled from the east to find a baby laying in a manger as there was no room in the inn, or anywhere else for that matter.

We will recall the travels of Joseph and Mary around that time of the 1st census taking and the reason they had to travel to Bethlehem when she was with child.

Some don’t approve of how my family and friends celebrate the day we call Christmas day, but that doesn’t bother me.

We will hang up our lamps to bring light at night and give presents for the children to enjoy.

Listen to their squeals of excitement as they see the desires of their heart before their very eyes.

Love will be shared and music will ring from tree top to tree top.

Yes it’s our  time of Christmas Celebrations

I am sure that the sounds of nature that surround us in the bush and all along the river bank, will all be the very voices that lift their heads to give praise to God.

Psalms 150:6 Let everything that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
