I'm a truck driver, one of 13 siblings, husband, dad,step dad,and grandfather. I love to sing Karaoke.....thanks for the visit....enjoy the songs!

Let's always make the effort to find and keep the reasons to praise our God ..... and one another

To do this.... we may have to remove ourselves from snobbish social circles ... where the intentions are to assume self righteousness and to look down on others with intimidation ....... True friendship doesn't exist where the scorns of arrogance are the will ..... nor will arrogance be the bond between true friends

I have this prayer for us as we sing.....

Father, let us wash with the blood that will not be spilled
and give us an inheritance that will have us be gracious and kind

it is the blood that stirs within the body that carries replenishment and food to the cells of the body .... and that same blood that carries away waste and toxins from our organs ....... once that blood is spilled it's properties are wasted and there will be a stain where it is left ........ so the only blood worth having is the blood you inherit ...... not the spilled blood of sacrifice ....... Jesus Christ gave his life to teach us to turn from sacrifice and repent .......Father, please have us take the lesson and live as you intend for us ........ I pray the blood of the lamb is his children inheriting his bloodline ..... and not sacrificial blood

and ..... Father in heaven ....... if we inherit good will ..... it is that goodness which is on the forefront of our minds ....... and good will is the guidance in everything we do

I will not yet say that I am so secure ...... that I have not or would not doubt .... but I believe in these things ...... they are obvious and self evident to me ...... and I pray that it is the truth of the Lord God and the honest example of Jesus Christ that leads us ..... forever

Though I have worked hard in this life ....... to shine the light of glory ..... to serve God and to love my fellow man ....... it seems I move through life almost unnoticed ...... as if to be only a single seed among many other seeds .......

..... and if I am but a seed in this life ...... it is surely not the seed that is desired ...... but the fruit that comes of the seed ....... So when my life on earth be through ...... and the seed is planted ....... I pray the seed of my soul will grow and blossom ...... and bear fruit that pleases the Lord ........ and that the fruit of my seed also be a praise among men ........ an honest example ..... for grace is not merely a whim ...... but a work of glory and humility ....... there is no richer inheritance than that I can imagine

Peace ....... is a facet of and a by-product of Love ...... Love commands Justice ..... Justice, in turn, sets the terms for Peace ....... Justice also stands strong against doubts and defeats anarchy ..... True Justice answers to and cannot exist without Love ....... these three gifts, Peace, Love and Justice form a bond of Grace that strengthens and nurtures Confidence, Faith and Happiness ...... anyone who seems to break this bond of Grace, is himself broken ..... but he who abides faithfully in this bond will be filled with Joy, with Hope, with Mercy and will have Self Restraint ...... people have different ways of referring to Goodness ..... but one cannot know Honest Truth without knowing Goodwill ....
Tests of anger
Tests of sorrow
Tests of suffering
The test of time
Tests of wit and intelligence
Tests of patience
Tests of longing
The test of faith
And tests of will .....
all lead to the realization of the bond of Grace ....... dreamers, scholars and prophets alike will all sing of the Glory and Mercy of the bond of God's Grace ...... and whoever believes will live in Grace beyond death ..... as the Son has done before the Father ...... and as the seed of the flower ..... though it falls and dies ..... rises up again ...... anew

If we are all brothers an sisters ....... we must get along with love between us ..... and in us ..... and all around us ....... and we will not be happy with wrongs ........ we must not let our bond to each other to be based on a common hatred ....... "only love can conquer hate" ....... if this is believed, seeing the sense of loving one another will be realized ....... love will not be tainted ..... it is not cruel ...... love is forgiving ........ it does not dwell begrudgingly ........ it will not answer malice with malice, for love only seeks to be kind ....... it hopes and believes and bears all things ........ and it will not fail ...... ever ...... the Lord has told us along these lines ...... and he lives ....... maintaining the example, the purity, the grace and the power of love ........ whatever evils befall us in these times .... we must dwell on whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, if there are any virtuous things ..... as not to give fuel to the very evils we hate ........ and to sharpen our practice of doing good deeds ..... no one is good by their own volition ...... only by God's grace can we do good ........ even if you say you don't believe in God ..... if you believe in and practice love ..... you are His child ....... and you know God ..... these are the teachings of Jesus Christ ..... who is remembered more for being honest and faithful, than him being Jewish ..... and if you asked Jesus by who's authority he teaches ...... he would tell you " I am the Lord and that is my name" ..... as his Father speaks through him

If there is one thing I am learning worth keeping in my 55 years of life on this earth, it is that the evils that dwell in this world will fill your head with intimidation, with doubts, with things you shouldn't do, and with ways you shouldn't follow .......
and convincingly enough you will be told that this troublesome shroud is good and lawful ....... that you should respect and revere it's authority ...... when it is actually a method of exploit and a path to certain slavery .....
I have learned, through the discipline of sports games, and how they correlate to life lessons that the path to success does not come from dwelling with grieving conscience on what you shouldn't do ....... if you are trying to make a shot with a ball, and you are telling yourself not to do it wrong ..... you've got the wrong idea already .... and your shot will gravitate toward the very wrong you wish to restrain from
conversely, if you tell yourself this is how your shot should be made, and successfully focus on that, and also clear your mind from the thought of whatever the wrong way is, then your shot will gravitate toward a successful shot, goal, basket, home run, cup in, completed pass, or what have you
the same lessons work in life, I am finding more and more ...... when you have lots of wrong ideas you are struggling to restrain from, it is not the best time to act or make decisions to go forward with ........ take a chill ...... let these ideas pass you by ...... wait until you are in a better frame of mind ..... when your thoughts are hopeful, joyful, when you feel full of faith, when your confidence is not fettered by negativity and doubt ...... it is then the decisions you make will be more wise, more successful, more persevering with goodness .....
and even if you fall short ( and many times we do), you will not regret the effort of the more honest, more positive approach ..... while the more negative approach, with apprehension and aggressive frustration, is almost always assuring disappointment and regret
Take your time to consider things....... meditate and pray over the way of wisdom ..... and let the Truth sink in deep into your mind and heart ........ if there is a God who loves us, he is surely encouraging us along these lines
and be patient and kind to those who don't get it or are too frustrated to appreciate the merit of this way of thinking .... after all, they only fool themselves if they can't draw you into their negativity
start fresh every day ..... don't be afraid to go over this and over this again and again ...... dwell in moments ..... the success of many moments can build a huge faithful confidence ..... while defeats are not so painful if taken one moment at a time ..... moments are light and easy to bear .... while days and weeks and years can be enormously burdensome to bear
and last ..... learn the truth about what love is ..... love is not some silly girlish affection that can be broken with a disparaging word ...... love is very serious ..... and very powerful ...... people mistake kindness and humility for weakness ....... but that way of thinking is their fools gold ....... their own negativity and exploitive intimidations will come back and bite them ..... for they do not know that the hate and commiseration they so proudly point at others has a personality all it's own ..... and it hates them just as much as they think they hate others ...... it is love that turns the hateful into repenting souls who are willing to forgive .... it is love that will always nurture peace and serenity ....... these are treasures that worldly wealth cannot provide ...... and also what we cannot continue very long without
so mull it over ...... make your own version ..... and that will be where you are at inside ..... you can start from there ..... and work your way to be more honest, more patient, more positive, and more successful in your life's choices
I send this message with love ..... for free
