(Give Them Back) Post for Day 286 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


People seem to think that you should be willing to speak to them whether they’re jerks or not.

Martha Plimpton


Give Them Back

God asks only that you be a good person but He doesn’t ask you to be a human punching bag either. Sometimes it’s okay to turn away from the rude and simply walk away.


Psalms 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

To All The Fierce Black Friday Warriors…


I hope your Black Friday injuries aren’t so severe that you can’t click a mouse on Cyber Monday.


Black Friday: Because only in America, people trample others for sales exactly one day after being thankful for what they already have.


Black Friday should actually be called the The Hunger Games. People kill each other and the winner gets a $20 crock pot.


James 4:

1 From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?

2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.

3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

(THANKSGIVING IN THE WORDS OF OTHERS ) Post for Day 284 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”




Gratitude is the inward feeling of kindness received. Thankfulness is the natural impulse to express that feeling. Thanksgiving is the following of that impulse. (Henry Van Dyke)


Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough. (Oprah Winfrey)


Pride slays thanksgiving, but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves. (Henry Ward Beecher)


There is one day that is ours. Thanksgiving Day is the one day that is purely American. (O. Henry)


I celebrated Thanksgiving in an old-fashioned way. I invited everyone in my neighborhood to my house, we had an enormous feast, and then I killed them and took their land. (Jon Stewart)


I’m thankful for every moment. (Al Green)


I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual. (Henry David Thoreau)


Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. (William Arthur Ward)


I give thanks to my Creator for this wonderful life where each of us has the opportunity to learn lessons we could not fully comprehend by any other means. (Joseph B. Wirthlin)







(13 Points ) Post for Day 283 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


13 points showing that maybe you are the “World” in the Bible and learning how to master it: (John 10:34 Jesus says “You are gods”)

  • The Book starts with 7 Days in Genesis that are 7 steps to discovering peace (Deut 33:25 sandals as days).
  • The Book ends with numerous 7’s depicting reaching the end or the completion process of the world cleansing.
  • The entire Book is teaching you how to construct harmony and peace. (New Temple: Jerusalem means the teachings of Peace)
  • The Book stories are also allegories of the 7 step process. The secret is hidden in the names.
  • The word for World in ancient Greek is Kosmos which means ‘the order of things’.
  • The Bible starts with ‘the World is without form (Unstructured), and void (Empty); and darkness (Ignorant)’. (IE: Chaos: without order)
  • The entire Book promises salvation of the soul. The word Soul means Mind. (IE: Free thought)
  • The root word for ‘beginning’ in ancient Hebrew is ‘Head’ thus starting the Bible with “in the Head God created”
  • The word for God used early on is Elohim which means a Plurality of rulers/judges, thus changing the first verse to “In the head Judgment created”
  • The words Heaven (Sky/Lofty) and Earth (Firm) represent lofty aspirations and grounded beliefs thus changing the first verse to “In the head judgment creates divisibility of self”
  • The Bible heralds a savior of the world who identifies Himself as the “Truth” (Jn 14:6) and the “Word” (Jn 1:1) of God. (Jn 8:32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.)
  • The assembly of Truths like stones makes a temple where God might dwell within (1 Cor 3:16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?)
  • The entire Book is teaching you to create the perfect man/temple with so that you may reflect God’s mastery of the inner-world and find perfect peace. (2 Cor 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image).

The entire Book is filled with real people and places whose lives seemingly magically form the ultimate manual to peace… Proof of God’s power? You decide.

(Superman Helps Prove God Exists?) Post for Day 282 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


It is true that you can’t prove a negative. However, the existence of God is provable in the same way a building is positive proof that there was a builder.

Ray Comfort


Superman Helps Prove God Exists?

What if there is a way to prove God exist? What if it all starts with the knowing that the Bible is being read wrong? To understand this try and think about Superman for instance. Superman is not the story you think it is:

“For example, Superman’s Kryptonian name, “Kal-El”, resembles the Hebrew words קלאל, which can be taken to mean “voice of God”. The suffix “el”, meaning “(of) God”, is also found in the name of angels (e.g. Gabriel, Ariel), who are flying humanoid agents of good with superhuman powers. Tye suggests that this “Voice of God” is an allusion to Moses’ role as a prophet. Moreover, Kal-El’s parents send him away in a vessel, delivering him to new adoptive parents in an alien culture in order to save him from impending doom, just as Moses’ parents do. “The narratives of Krypton’s birth and death borrowed the language of Genesis.”


For thousands of years most stories have had two meanings at the same time just like Superman. One side is the story at face value made for the reader’s childlike amusement, and the other side is more subtle and it’s for an adult of discernment who can read between the lines. Two truths are playing out simultaneously as you read through the Holy Scriptures, but unfortunately modern religions only teach you the surface level stories because that’s all they can see, and as such they have made rules based on their views of doctrines. But the real power of the Book is the second layer that the child can not see and can only catch glimpses of it if they know the definitions of the names of people and places. But being that we don’t commonly speak ancient Hebrew today, all we are typically left with is educated guess work and deduction based on a single aspect of what is easily seen and not what is really being said hidden behind the thin veil. In example it’s like saying a little story like “Two brothers named Fat and Skinny walked through the same doorway at the same time and Skinny became skinnier”. The child without understanding of the names would only read about two brothers walking through a door, but an older child would see that it’s a play on words and would see the humor in the story. But the real magic happens when the discerning mind sees that each brother is really an aspect of truth that implies that when in the same situation that not all things are equal. This is a foundational truth that helps elevate a person’s understanding. The entire Bible has an entire language of symbols and allegories that are disguised as the lives of people from long ago, but in reality it is a manual to creating peace and harmony in your lifetime. It all starts with a 7 stage process you know of as ‘Days” in the book of Genesis and it ends with the completion of that same 7 step process in the book of Revelation… and everything in between is the fulfilment of that process.


So how do we prove God exists with this information? The people and places are real, and yet, they all still form this manual to create peace within. This is because God’s “CHOSEN PEOPLE” were chosen because their lives are the written embodiment of God’s love letter to the world and you are not left to be lost and wonder this word alone without guidance or love. He left us all detailed instructions on how to be happy and how to get along… but through religion our wise men have made us all soulblind.

(The Known God) Post for Day 281 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


The worship of the golden calf of old has found a new and heartless image in the cult of money and the dictatorship of an economy which is faceless and lacking any truly human goal.

Pope Francis


The Known God

Life is marked by the perception of worth. The more you place value on a thing the more important it is to you, but have you ever considered why Moses wore a veil on his face when he came back from spending time with God and why the veil of the temple was torn in two when Jesus died upon the cross? And more importantly have you ever wondered why the most sacred name of God is lost to humanity though it is the one that should hold the greatest worth to us all?


Read these verses for the answer and you too will begin to see beyond the veil.


Matthew 1:23 … and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with (Within) US.


John 10:

34 Jesus answered them… Ye are gods

35 …and the scripture cannot be broken


1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I AM known.


2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image


Exodus 3

11 And Moses said unto God, Who AM I…?

14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.


Hebrews 10:20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh


Matthew 26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.


John 2:21 But he spake of the temple of his body.


2 Corinthians 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.


Though only a dim reflection it takes time for a child to grow to resemble their Father.

(Smoking) Post for Day 280 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


If you want a midget to look like a baby, don’t put a cigar in his mouth.

~Chuck Jones



I find fire in the mouth is best left to fire eaters and God, because if you see a child smoke and it bothers you then deep inside you know that it is inherently wrong.


2 Samuel 22:

8 “Then the earth shook and trembled; The foundations of heaven quaked and were shaken, Because He was angry.

9 Smoke went up from His nostrils, And devouring fire from His mouth; Coals were kindled by it.

(Herding Cats) Post for Day 279 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


“Dogs believe they are human. Cats believe they are God.”


Herding Cats

When it comes to social media people are like cats. They follow links like stings and amuse themselves with small furry creatures. They are finicky and indifferent about what they find to be important and they often suffer from an awful superiority complex. But most of all they are pushy or sound asleep when it comes to the most important things… The truth is the world is not here to amuse you. You are a part of it, so act like you are a part of something instead of digitally setting yourself apart.


Proverbs 4:

25 Let your eyes look straight ahead, And your eyelids look right before you.

26 Ponder the path of your feet, And let all your ways be established.

27 Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil.


(The Sparrow Horse) Post for Day 278 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


The spirited horse, which will try to win the race of its own accord, will run even faster if encouraged.



The Sparrow Horse

In Ancient Hebrew the word for ‘Horse’ in the Bible means ‘Sparrow’ for its swift and cheerful flight. It is the joyful means of conveyance of understanding, also known as swiftness of thought. Wisdom is not found by accident but through a driving force to overcome opposition, and so we all, at times, may need a little nudge in the right direction or a carrot to lead the way.


Proverbs 26:3 A whip for the horse, A bridle for the donkey, And a rod for the fool’s back.

(The Practical Cycle of Life) Post for Day 277 of my “365 Day Photo Challenge”


Karma brings us ever back to rebirth, binds us to the wheel of births and deaths. Good Karma drags us back as relentlessly as bad, and the chain which is wrought out of our virtues holds as firmly and as closely as that forged from our vices.

Annie Besant


The Practical Cycle of Life

The Practical Cycle of Life is not about life and death so much as it is about revisiting the past from the future. More often than not we all return to past wrongs and try to create future rights, or we fall into the trap of trying to take those past rights and create new failures by trying to do that same thing all over again. Life is not stagnate and it is always in motion. The past is gone and the wheel, though it comes around again, has moved on from where it started and if you do not get on board you are going to be left behind.


Philippians 3:

13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
