This is the first post on my new blog. I’m just getting this new blog going, so stay tuned for more. I hope you will enjoy my crazy journeys and adventures, photography, and my new experiences through the creativity process as I try new ideas and techniques in my photography, artwork even recipes.
I am embarking on a journey to live a healthy lifestyle focused on feeding my mind and my body in a way that makes it function like a well oiled machine. Organic foods, fresh foods, with limited gluten and lactose free. Grass feed beef and free range chicken and eggs without all of the hormones and artificial preservatives. I hope that my blog will be educational and humorous at times as well.
Spreading positivity and kindness, I hope that my words will impact your life and lead you on your own path to discovery and a creativity happy healthy life. Try something new you might enjoy it! You never know what fun you can have if you have doubts and never try it. Don’t live a life full of regret thinking I always wish I had. Just Do It! And have fun making memories while you are at it.

When you come across a person who has wronged you or not been the most polite or happy person towards you…how do you react?
This kind of view was suggested by C.S. Lewis in his famous book, The Weight of Glory.
Lewis wrote, “There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations – these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub and exploit – immortal horrors or everlasting splendors. This does not mean that we are to be perpetually solemn. We must play. But our merriment must be of that kind (and it is, in fact, the merriest kind) which exists between people who have, from the outset, taken each other seriously – no flippancy, no superiority, no presumption.”
Every person you have ever met will one day be an everlasting splendor in the presence of God or an immortal horror separated from God’s presence. Yet, few of us see people through that kind of view. Fewer still love people in light of that potential future.
But if we did love people that way, how might Jesus leverage our love to shape their eternal future?
Before you react or respond stop & think will this help them get closer to Jesus? Could my response make a difference in their eternal life? Is God using me as a crossroad?
What if He is?
Someone loved you and me to Jesus, and we owe everyone we meet the same gift.
You have to have a Heart ❤️ of Gold and Love in your Heart to see The Joy that is Heaven on 🌍 to Respect ✊, People, and Treat them with Kindness, just as you Treat, this Planet 🌎 with Kindness. If people continually go around HURTING, each other , Causing each other PAIN, SEPARATING, FAMILIES, and FRIENDS, DIVIDING COMMUNITIES, COUNTRIES, COUNTIES AND NATIONS, based on disagreements over, POLITICS, Race, RELIGION, RELATIONSHIPS, people continue to act like they are in High School. Men never grow up and act like adults, because they are always wanting more expensive grown up Toys! Not supporting their wives educators, paying for Heath care expenses, or children’s education expenses, but we all want OUR CHILDREN to be the BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST. Then who is putting tires on cars, gas in cars, paying for music lessons, dance lessons, all of the archery equipment, swimming, athletics, hunting, four wheelers, art supplies, computers? If we are going to compete on NATIONAL LEVELS?
You intend to Save this plant, make plans on teaching children of the future Etiquette skills, manners, gardening, recycling, a child’s first teachers are their Parents! It starts AT HOME! With how you speak to your children the examples you set for your children. The music you listen to, your diet, do you sit down at a table for meals, have conversations? Are you encouraging, grateful, thankful, appreciative, joyful, or judgemental?
Are you observing the little things around you? The gifts that God has blessed you with Gods Treasures? A child laughter, the twinkle 🤩 in their eye, the silly stories in their creative minds, the butterfly 🦋, drifting by, the birds singing, stop and smell the Roses, say Hi to your neighbor. ( Don’t just cruise through the neighborhood and see if they are home YES I SEE YOU AND YOU ARE FREAKING ME OUT I SEE THE SAME CARS SITTING OUTSIDE, I AM VERY OBSERVANT) 🙄. And you are irritating the crap out of me if I had a paintball gun I would start TAGGING YOUR CARS!!! 😡.
Think about the way you would want to be treated! And Start treating people the way that you want to be treated. Start asking ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS.
How are you! Can I help you? Do you have an URGENT NEED? Is there something bothering you? Do you have a problem that I can be of assistance with, I might can try and help you investigate this issue.
“To me, fishing’s the greatest sport on the planet for many reasons,” he says. “My call-out to those people who’ve never fished: Just go out and enjoy it at any level. Fishing can be intimidating because today a lot of people see $50,000 to $70,000 bass boats and all this fancy equipment, and they think it’s required to go fishing. That’s absolutely false, man.,Gaston’s
“I mean, you can fish with a stick. You can fish as inexpensive as you want, from a cane pole and digging worms out of your yard to $80,000 boats and high-dollar equipment. You can fish from the shore, from a boat, it doesn’t matter.”
“The world’s hunger is getting ridiculous, There is more fruit in rich man’s shampoo than in a poor man’s plate.”
When you feed others you are feeding Christ.
1. Matthew 25:34-40 “Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, my Father has blessed you! Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the creation of the world. I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger, and you took me into your home. I needed clothes, and you gave me something to wear. I was sick, and you took care of me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’ “Then the people who have God’s approval will reply to him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you or see you thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you as a stranger and take you into our homes or see you in need of clothes and give you something to wear? When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ “The king will answer them, ‘I can guarantee this truth: Whatever you did for one of my brothers or sisters, no matter how unimportant they seemed, you did for me.’
What does the Bible say?
2. Isaiah 58:10 If you give some of your own food to [feed] those who are hungry and to satisfy [the needs of] those who are humble, then your light will rise in the dark, and your darkness will become as bright as the noonday sun.null
3. Isaiah 58:7 Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help.
4. Ezekiel 18:7 He is a merciful creditor, not keeping the items given as security by poor debtors. He does not rob the poor but instead gives food to the hungry and provides clothes for the needy.
With low literacy rates in the United States, and children needing more and more early intervention, and preschool more structure in the homes at an early age, more head start experiences, more after school care, parents having to work two and three jobs to support their families, single parent homes, more and more latch key children, no one home to supervise children after school. There has become more and more need for after school programs, Boys and Girls Programs, Church programs, funding for community outreach programs.
