FAKE IS FAKE?

FAKE IS FAKE?

I don’t know about you, but if I call someone fake, let it be known that I am not trying to offend them, I am describing who they are.

Knowing the truth and accepting it seems to be a thing of the past, the thing is, the truth will never change, it is what it is no matter how many years it may lie dormant. It’s possible, even easy, to insert falsehoods into the mainstream of our very lives, still the truth will be revealed even if it doesn’t rear its face in the liar’s lifetime.

Some of us may be under the impression that today’s climate is a good time for Fake News in order to please our own selfish ambitions to acquire something that’s not for sale, like other people’s freedoms, dreams, thoughts, and desires for what is rightly theirs.

When a choice is given, what happens when your answer is, it’s my way or the highway, or when we humble ourselves to the will of one, what happens to those that are not as selfish or as weak-minded as you? Often times when we submit ourselves to the willpower of inappropriate individuals, we lose ourselves, and the lives of all those born and unborn who do or will depend on our making the right decision at the right time for their future. 

My Grandfather told me years ago that he made a covenant (an agreement) with the Lord. He said, God told him if he put down earthy things and follow after him, he would bless his family for 6 or 7 generations. Fake news is not interested in that, these days it’s all about me and my under-educated, selfishly ignorant attitude, all stemming from feeling left out, short-sighted and vengeful of things not understood. 

Mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, I am talking about the ones who depend on you to make good decisions that will affect all those who surround you, including those who live outside your family circle, what about them? We need to take into consideration that the decisions we make today, will impact not only our loved ones, it will also affect the ones we may depend on also.

Bad decisions made out of hatred, can and will cause our most precious to be left behind to fall into the cracks caused by our intolerance of others, leaving them to suffer the consequences of our inability to look beyond our nose to do the right thing by telling the truth, and nothing but the truth, so help us, God.

Did you know a lot of people claim not to notice when someone is being pretentious or fake, even though they can feel or see it in their body language, instead they choose to stand guard over nothing but emptiness?  Others when hearing fake news just roll their eyes and say, we’ll figure it out, when realistically we may never figure it out. In my book that’s called a cop-out.

It’s easy to tell in some instances who are fake and who is not. Fake people talk about other people being fake, Real people worry about their business because they know the secret of life is honesty and fair dealing. If you can fake that, you’ve got it made.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year to all, all over the world.

I wish I could greet everyone in their own language a Happy New Year but, unfortunately, it’s just too much.

As we celebrate this New Year be mindful of New Year Resolutions because they are Something that goes in one Year and out the other. The Slave Harriet Tubman saw the New Year as good a time as any to dream for a new beginning. She said Every great dream begins with a dreamer.

The thing is, when searching for that dream in 2021, if it becomes obvious that your dreams cannot be achieved, don’t adjust your dream, adjust your approach. In the end, we all get 365 days. The only difference is how we use them, no matter how old we get.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ONE AND ALL.

CHRISTMAS?

Contacts can be found at the end of each post, and sharing with others is encouraged.

According to ET News, there are some things about Christmas that are quite surprising such as Was Jesus born in the Spring?

The Historians believe so, plus the 25th of December isn’t mentioned in the Bible. Historians believe that the date was chosen because the agricultural god Saturn gave gifts, partied, and gambled every year on the 25th of December. Let’s say it became a day for everyone, as they celebrated each in their own way.

Christmas trees came to America in the 1830s, but it is believed the Germans were the 1st to bring the trees into their homes to decorate with cookies and lights.

Giving to others on Christmas started when a very rich Christian Bishop named Nicholas, who lived in Turkey, became popular for giving gifts to the poor and the needy. When the Bishop was sainted, he became the Protector of the Children; thus, St. Nicholas.

It was the Dutch children who started the tradition of leaving food and drink out for Old St. Nick, as he was soon called as a show of affection. The Norse left treats and hey to feed the reindeer, as a variety of new concepts appeared, the Christmas and Christian celebrations flourished.

It’s not widely known that Santa Claus’s original colors were blue, white, and green, by the 1930s Coca-Cola had Santa in red, and a tradition was born. Did I mention the flying sleigh stories that began in 1819 were envisioned by the creator of The Headless Houseman in a dream?

Does anyone remember the Montgomery Ward Department Stores? The thing is they created Rudolph in 1939, but he didn’t have a red nose because the brass saw it as a sign of chronic alcoholism; they didn’t want a drunk looking reindeer. Rudolph’s only purpose was to get children to buy holiday coloring books.

Now, the part about Rudolph getting a red nose and Santa flying around the globe with magical reindeer is muddy.  More research is necessary.   🙂

Guess what? John Smith was the inventor of Eggnog, and he added the Rum. This took place at the Jamestown settlement in 1607. The Pilgrims may have been drinking, but no one was kissing under a Mistletoe. The mistletoe is really a parasite that attaches itself to a tree and then literally sucks the life out of it. The purpose is to stay green year-round.

It has been rumored that Father Joseph Mohr of Austria may have written Silent Night. It was also rumored Father Mohr wrote the song in desperation for some type of Christian music because his organ was broken. In today’s world, “White Christmas” is the best-selling song of all time, and “Jingle Bells” was supposed to be a Thanksgiving song. Strange, but true.

The number one song of all Christmas songs is, All I Want for Christmas is You, and it resides in the Guinness World Record Book for the highest-charting holiday song by none other than Mariah Carey. The highest-grossing Christmas Movie is Jim Carreys How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

On December 25th Christians like us and all over the world know Jesus is the Reason for the Season. We celebrate his birthday because it marks his 1st breath outside the womb, and it marks the beginning of the earthy story of heavenly Redemption. 

The 25th of December works for me because December 25th is all about “A birth and a death and eternal life.”

EMOTIONS?

 

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each page, and sharing is encouraged.

EMBEDDED EMOTIONS?

Our emotions are all interconnected to serve a purpose, so the best we can do is try to understand and control them. After all, Human Beings are emotional creatures, it’s written all over our faces.

Most times when someone is trying to advise us, instead of listening we are talking over them. Imagine how much further we could be if only we would listen, but, paying attention depends on how we feel about this or that.

My daily emotions have been in cahoots with far too many attitudes, often leaving a mixed bag of feelings that ranged from giddy to sad, mellow too anxious, and from just okay to ecstatic. I could be energized, blissful, calm, mean, mad, or vindictive in a short span of time. In fact, we all have an abundance of emotions that make us who we are as human beings.

The most important emotion for me is happiness, followed by sadness, fear, disgust, anger, and surprise. Some of them hit harder than others but in no particular order, it all depends on how we feel at that exact moment. Let me remind you of the fact the most of us are good at blowing up little things, then blaming it on getting up on the wrong side of the bed.

When we are happy, you can hear it in our tone of voice and see it in our facial/body expressions, such as smiling and non-aggressive body language. The old sparkle in the eye thing.

HAPPINESS?

Our happiness serves a special purpose that is directly related to our health; this is true because happiness reduces stress. Did you know happiness is not a goal, it’s an experience? Remember that old saying, don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened?

The fun begins when we learn we are better than what we think of ourselves, but only if we don’t become too vain. Did you know it’s the positivity that makes life better for all of us? More importantly, did you know others are not obligated to be unhappy just because you are?

We all have our crosses to bear, plus we are not equipped to take on everyone’s problems. Just do what you can, there is joy in helping, which brings about personal satisfaction which can easily put a smile on your face.

SADNESS?

Sadness has its purpose; it balances out happiness. If it were not for sadness, happiness would have no meaning; there would be nothing to measure it by. Feeling sad is a part of life, and so is crying, but have you ever noticed how hard it is to breathe when you’re crying?

KeepInspiringMe.com hit the nail on the head the way they married the meaning of Sadness and Happiness. “Sadness gives us depth, happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots, and happiness gives branches.”

FEAR?

Fear is the path to the dark side that leads to anger, and that anger leads to hate, which leads to suffering. David G. Roberts tells us, Everything we want is on the other side of fear. Fear is our adversary if we don’t face it, it becomes our limits.

Fear a powerful emotion, often leaves us with little to no choice; fight or flee. The thing is you must make a decision. The good news is fear can only go as far as the mind allows, although some let their fear bring them to total obliteration. By the way, thinking will not overcome fear, but action will.

Did you know fear kills more dreams than failure ever will?

To conquer fear you must be willing to confront the danger, and the task to get to the other side where growth awaits. I understand fear will always be with us, but if you don’t resist fear it will overtake you. Just to be clear, Fear is an emotion that comes from uncertainly; don’t allow it to overpower your intelligence.

DISGUST?

Sameness is the mother of disgust; variety the cure.  Francesco Petrarch.

Disgust can originate from things like an unpleasant taste, sight or smell, poor hygiene, even observing others can bring about disgust, which can also be triggered by physical reactions such as vomiting or retching.

In my opinion, egoism is the most disgusting thing I know, so for me, I think being disgusted is an appropriate response to an egotist.

ANGER?

Anger, is one of the most powerful of all emotions, and it’s fueled by feelings of agitation, coupled with hostility and frustration towards others. This is another emotion that carries the fight or flight choices. Unlike fear in my opinion, it’s best to flee.

It’s easy to recognize anger; glaring at people coupled with yelling, turning red, sweating, hitting, and or throwing things. Anger becomes a real problem when it becomes dangerous to others, coupled with strong aggression, abuse, or violence.  Emotional anger can be mental as well as physical.

The word anger is only one letter short of danger, and holding on to it is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else, and you are the one who gets burned. Anger is also your enemy Control it, for he who makes you angry control and conquers you.

SURPRISE?

Surprise a response following something unexpected.

This emotion is all over the place, it can be positive, negative, or neutral. A surprise is like when someone lunges at you expectantly. What I love most about surprises is You’ll be surprised at how far you can go past the point where you thought it would end.

Simply put, emotions all boil down to self-control, which creates strength, and only then can calmness is mastered. You have to get to a point where your mood doesn’t shift based on the insignificant actions of someone else. Do not allow your emotions to overpower your intelligence.

THANKSGIVING?

CONNECTIONS ARE AT THE BOTTOM OF EACH PAGE, AND SHARING WITH OTHERS IS ENCOURAGED.

THANKSGIVING?

As most know, Thanksgiving got off to a pretty rough start; there was blood, a population decimated, and someone’s head ending up on the end of a stake. After all the shenanigans people were finally able to sit down as a family, eat delicious food, watch parades, some even traveled.

As for me, I have a love it or hate it relationship with Thanksgiving. For instance, I have noticed it’s a lot earlier to forgive family when the food is good and your belly full, but it may be a trap, I was told when the Indians invited everyone over for dinner, after dessert their guest killed them all and then stole their land. That was not a good look for any affair.

Still, I can’t think of a better time than Thanksgiving to tell yourself some lies out in the open, for instance, while eating dinner you announce you’re going to start a new diet after this Thanksgiving Feast, only to be caught struggling to carry five containers of food to the car.

I love Chicken Fingers it’s one of my favorite foods, but it’s one of the foods not allowed simply because it’s Thanksgiving. It is said to be Socially Unacceptable. Who made that up, and who would have thought Chicken Fingers would get the boot? The thing is, some things seem to be insignificant when you have them, they only become important when you need or don’t have them.

Just so you know, this year’s dinner may be at the home of another, so start by being thankful to the host.

Here we go, I hate being the bearer of bad news, but the average American gains 7 pounds between Thanksgiving and New Years.

In my opinion, Thanksgiving is all about giving thanks, so I believe If you are not thankful for what you already have, it’s hard for me to believe you will be thankful for what you’re going to get in the future.

I didn’t forget about Football, and I certainly haven’t forgotten the closer we get to Thanksgiving the more it feels like Christmas, because of a bombardment of Yule Tide advertising.

Everyone has their quirts including me, so if you don’t have Cranberry Sauce in any form, dinner is ruined for me. But just for the record, I bring a couple of cans just in case. Personally, all I want is the Ham, Dressing, Potato Salad, and of course the Cranberry Sauce.

As most know Thanksgiving is going to be very different this year, including some of us giving Virtual Hugs, and some not at all, because of The Pandemic, like the one that is washing over the World called COVID-19. But I am confident that most of us will manage to connect to family, friends, and others, although it will be a real challenge. I can’t tell you what to do, but for the safety of those you love, and a few maybe not so much, wear a mask.

With all of the complaining I just did, I really am thankful for every minute of every day. You?

MONEY, MONEY, MONEY?

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each page, and sharing is encouraged.

MONEY, MONEY, MONEY?

No man can serve two masters: For either he will hate one and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon (money) Matthew 6:24 KJ.

They say people will do just about anything for money, I say they’re right. Some will go to unimaginable lengths for money. OnePoll.com surveyed 1,000 people to find out just how far some would go for that paper gold?

The survey asked, Would you fake your own death?

According to OnePoll, and my two cents, I don’t know, but you may be able to fake it if you can hide it from your enemies, coupled with keeping your mouth shut while people are confused about your whereabouts, along with your business dealings being kept secret; only then you may be able to breathe freely. GOOD LUCK!

15% said they would fake death for $100 million. What?

Did you know, faking your own death is illegal, plus it requires a considerable amount of work coupled with it’s expensive whether you get the 100 Million or not? Why would you do that?

6% would murder for $1 Billion. Would you?

Most know the wages of sin is death, and it is forbidden to kill. Then Jesus said, beware guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own Luke 12:15 KJV.

10% would enter a sham marriage for $100 Thousand.

That’s a lot of money, but there are reasons such as gaining citizenship, ground rules for a required position or situation. What matters are you. Plus, it sounds like another type of Slavery to me.

PollOne.com also offered a list of 10 Awful Things We Do For Money, starting with10% some would shoplift for $1,00000. In most states, the penalty for shoplifting is 1 year in jail and or a $500 fine. Is it worth it?

10% would perform a sex act with a stranger for $100,000. As for me, that is not enough money for the likes of Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, HIV/AIDS, Genital Herpes, and more. These diseases will eat your $100,000, and you may die.

10% would do amateur porn for $1 Million.

Pornography is the undiluted essence of anti-female propaganda. Susan Brownmiller. Gloria Steinem tells us, Rape is the practice, battered women are the practice, and battered children are the practice.

25% would donate sperm or eggs without their parent’s knowledge for $100 Million. I can’t lie about this one, but I couldn’t take the money it would be like selling children?

10% would punch a stranger in the face for $1 Million. I might, but am afraid of going to jail, although 1 million is very convincing, I still believe in Karma. Do you?

20% would flash a stranger for $1 Million. Most of those I know would flash their naked behinds for free. So who would offer a million? Anyone, you know?

10% would commit treason for $1 Billion.

There is nothing good to come out of treason. I’ll pass. The thing is, when it comes to money, you may be the one who becomes the collateral damage. Risky Business, I am a coward.

Be mindful of the gods you serve to get what you want. As far as I know, there is only One. I call him Jesus.

Money isn’t everything but it can buy a bed, but not sleep. It can buy a clock, but no time, it can buy you a book, but not knowledge, it can buy you a position, but not respect. It can buy you medicine, but not health, it can buy you blood, but not life. It can buy you sex, but not love.

HALLOWEEN?

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post, and sharing is encouraged.

HALLOWEEN?

Did you know Halloween was a pagan holiday that dates back to well over 2000 years ago in the Celt’s era? The Celts celebrated Halloween at the end of October, which was the beginning of their New Year.

The Celts believed Hallows Eve was when the boundaries between the world of the living and the world of the dead lost its clarity. On that night, the Celts believed the Ghost of the dead returned to earth. To suppress the dead, bonfires burned, throughout the countryside.

By 43 A.D., the Roman Empire conquered the Celtic lands, and the Holiday changed, now, at the end of October, the Romans commemorated the dead. The next day they honored the Roman goddess of fruit and trees. History tells us this what started us bobbing apples, a game that is still practiced today.

The original pagans were followers of an ancient religion that worshiped several gods. Now the word pagan is used to describe someone who doesn’t go to a synagogue, church, or mosque. It also means it’s anyone else’s religion or belief system that rests outside your own.

All Saints’ Day started in May 609 A. D., when the Pope dedicated the Pantheon in Rome to honor all Christians and Martyrs, moving Hallows Eve from May 13th to November 1st to include all the Saints.

This leads to the All Saints’ Day Celebration, which had been called by several names down through the Centuries, including Alholowmesse, which actually means All Saints’ Day. Then the Celtic Religion began to call the holiday All-Hallows Eve, and eventually, Halloween.

When Halloween spread to America, it was limited because of the Protestant belief systems in New England, still, it spreads wildly in the southern colonies like Maryland.

Because of different ethnic groups, the American version of Halloween began to emerge at public events where stories were told about the dead, along with parties that included singing and dance.

In the 19th century, America was experiencing millions of new immigrants, especially the Irish, who helped to popularize Halloween nationally. Americans began dressing up in costumes (something we borrowed from European traditions) on Obtorer 31th by going house to house asking for food and money, hence Trick or Treat.

Did you know? “Although it is unknown precisely where and when the phrase “Trick or Treat” was coined, the custom has been firmly established in America’s popular cultures by1951, when “Trick or Treating” was depicted in the Peanuts Comic Strip. Also, in 1952, Disney produced a cartoon called “Trick or Treat”, featuring Donald Duck and his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie.

All Saints’ Day, in the Christian church, is a day to commemorate all the saints, both known and unknown, who have attained heaven. It is celebrated on November 1st in Western churches and on the first Sunday after Pentecost in the Eastern churches. 

Just so you know, it may not be safe to continue Trick or Treating because of today’s unsavory characters. Choose wisely when it comes to allowing your child to participate or not, the consequences relies on your decision.

PLACES TO GO AND THINGS TO SEE?

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each page, and sharing is encouraged.

PLACES TO GO AND THINGS TO SEE?

The choices made today may have consequences tomorrow. 

I am the eldest of six, and there are only eight years between myself and the baby. Growing up, I always had a baby in my lap doing what babies do. I didn’t complain, it was what it was, although it wasn’t my decision to babysit.  

Even with all those siblings, life was still a dream, we eat together, played in and outdoor games together, but more importantly, we took road trips.

Before I was fifteen years old I had been to New York several times, Alabama, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Maryland, etc.

While on these road trips, I took full advantage of the adventures. With so many amazing things to see or do that opened my eyes to the world, a world in which I would soon be making decisions for myself.

Did you know The more decisions you are forced to make alone, the more you are aware of your freedom to choose?

In other words, I realized babysitting wasn’t the only thing to look forward to, so getting out of my zip code gave me the best opportunity to experience what else is to be discovered. I realized no place, person or situation was the same; I was ready to explore that possibility. The thing is I wasn’t old enough, but I was coming of age; it wouldn’t be long before high school would be a thing of the past. I needed to be prepared for a new and independent life outside of the home.

The first thing I learned was you just can’t jump up and leave without a plan, underage, and without finances. Oh, but if you are in a hurry, this may help, Do not do the same thing the same way 50 times when it doesn’t work. When you can stop doing that, you may have grown enough to make some decent decisions.

For safety precautions when making those decisions, I suggest you Never base life decisions on advice from people who don’t have to deal with the results.  

I knew life was full of pros and cons, and the safest place was at home still, I wanted to be a part of the outside world, so I decided, what was best for me was not to follow the crowd.  A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows public opinion.

I wanted total control of my life, and having a husband and children in or out of wedlock was not for me.

In my day, women were supposed to get married, coupled with doing as they were told; I was determined to make my own decisions about my body and how I would make a living that would allow me to answer to no one. What I learned was Decisions are a reality of life that equates to consequences.

That one sentence started me to wondering, how would I fair in my old age without children, coupled with the decision to never marry. The truth is, I knew the answer; I am not submissive, so having someone rule over me is out of the question. I believed I would have lived a miserable life since I am so happy without ever having a husband and children.

But at age seventeen, I wondered if I could live with that decision fifty years later? I still had to make a decision and live with it. That was the scary part.

Decisions sometimes prove to be very scary, especially when the choice is between where you should be and where you really wanted to be. 

Still, all decisions have consequences, right or wrong, even the well-intended ones. The task is to Remain open to the unfolding of life and let it reveal itself in time. Questions need to be asked, did you think it through, and if you fail, can you live with the decision you made and move on? But more importantly, did you learn anything?

All I am trying to say is you will reap and sow from the decisions you make, just like you will fail and never recover if you fail to adjust.

THE RULES OF LIFE?

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post, and sharing is encouraged.

THE RULES OF LIFE?

The first rule of life is actions have consequences, the second is you are the only one responsible for your actions. The thing is, things and actions are what they are, and the consequences of them will be what they will be.

Remember that old saying, we only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough? Just keep in mind life goes on while we are making those plans. And did you know without a life plan, a goal is just a wish, and if you are failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail?

Some people simply say The Hell With It, or Who Cares?

I believe like most people the main goal in life is to have or follow our plan, but for no rhyme or reason, most follow plans created by others. A plan that is based on that person’s lifestyle and his ideas immediately placing your dreams and ambitions on hold. That is if you have any.

In most job settings, we are usually encouraged to use the suggestion box, just be mindful of what you suggest. More than likely others may not be in favor because What glitters for you may not be gold in the eyes of others.

For the record l believe if you are quick to embrace the dreams and the ideologies of others, you are easily deceived.

Positive people can find the exceptions that are woven into all scenarios. Add some common sense, and we may come out unscathed by liars or those trying to steal our individuality, the very thing that distinguishes us from others.

The good news is, the Pinocchio’s and Dream Stealers thoughts and ideals do transmit LIE INDICATORS, here are some scientific signs:

The individual may be sweating or fidgeting, touching the face is sometimes an indicator of deceit. Unable to provide details or a sensible storyline while trying to avoid eye contact. When eyebrows are drawn upwards and toward the middle of the forehead, including dilated pupils, a rise in vocal pitch, and a defensive tone.

Let’s not forget some of our overused phrases such as; trust me, honestly, and to be honest.

But, we must be careful of some set in stone phrases because the mind’s eye is not an accurate source of information, it’s what we choose to believe. I get those gut feelings too, but what we see on the outside may not be who that person is on the inside.

Did you know some rules are not rules at all, they’re guidelines?

In other words, people are not a carbon copy of your impression of them, however real it may seem to you. Looking a certain way is not an indicator of who or what a person represents. It’s simple, the way one look doesn’t mean they will do what you imagined. You are not a Genie.

Most of us have reliable instincts to weed out those that don’t fit (un-trustworthy). Trust your instincts and remember, if it is too good to be true, you are probably right.

The rules of life can be challenging, so I make mine up as I go, except for the ones that are normally acceptable, such as: Stop overthinking, you don’t have to have all the answers all the time, and you are not the author of all the problems in the world.

At some point, we must make peace with our past, so living for today won’t disturb our future. Forgive and let go by accepting who you are now. Things will change if we actively try to limit negativity. Practice deep breathing and meditation in an attempt to build an encouraging environment. Time Heals, so don’t compare your trials and tribulations to what others do or think. The truth is you are an individual and the only one responsible for how you live life.

Some rules are more important than others one of them is, it is none of our business concerning what others think of us. At some point, no matter how right or wrong the Know It All Knows, you and God are the only ones that should be in your business.

Another rule is to be yourself, even Dr. Seuss agrees; he reminds us that Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You!

Its Something to Think About!

Jesus is Lord!

WICKED FRIENDS CREATE EVIL ENDS?

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the evil people, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it. Albert Einstein

The definition of evil is morally reprehensible: sinful, wicked.

Evil is a word that can taint every word that comes behind it. For instance, evil eyes, the evil dead, evil geniuses, evil deeds, men, women, life.

I have been in the world long enough to have been impacted by tyrants, one way or the other, even if it was only a school bully; which can be dangerous also.

Most have survived murderers lurking without our knowledge often by the Grace of God. All we need to realize is evil men seem to be invincible, but in the end, they always fall, and if you are a party to there deeds, they will take you down with them.

We can play the blame game by crying, It wasn’t my fault, or we can do something about our situation. Did you know its man’s own mind, not his enemy or foe, that lured him to evil ways? As a matter of fact, Evil comes from the abuse of free will. C.S. Lewis.

Truly evil people don’t hurt others; They often recruit the least of them to make these dirty deeds possible. Its normal for the devils and devellets in this world to take pride in the pain they inflict others, and of course, it’s always someone else’s fault, leaving that blame to fall on the innocent.

But we still follow some of the worst of the worst, and we know it because of fear.

Fear of the unknown is one such enemy. Another is not having a mind of you’re own.  Some just sit back and hope it all works out.

The fearful are being held back because of fear-mongering thoughts spewed out the mouths of others, and they are too afraid to speak up. Now, not everything or everybody is afraid of what others say, some fear emotions, such as love, decision making, etc.  

Did you know, The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.

Nelson Mandela tells us, I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.

It’s Something to Think about.

JESUS IS LORD!
