Another Trip Around The Sun

“When you do something noble and beautiful and nobody noticed, do not be sad. For the sun every morning is a beautiful spectacle and yet most of the audience still sleeps.” – John Lennon

All in all, 2018 was a year.  I traveled around the sun one more time. I got to enjoy the ride with some of the most amazing people that the world has to offer. I witnessed hardships, sorrows, defeats, triumphs, passion, and all the other in between emotions that come along with being on this wonderful Earth.  I have the best family that anyone could ever ask for, and the best extended familiy and friends that anyone could ever have wished for in a million years.  I don’t let my mind underscore the year that was.  I have grown as a person, becoming better than I was just yesterday, and that is goal for everyone, just be better than yesterday.  Keep learning, keep growing, keep enjoying the moments that matter the most. I am still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up in this crazy world.

I have had my reasons for walking away from the computer keyboard.  They all revolved around my personal life, how things were going and the way things were going at that time.  I was putting the wrong priorities in place in my life, and not setting myself up to see all the blessings that I currently had in front of me. This morning, on the way into work, it hit me really hard, that I am blessed in more ways that anyone on this Earth could ever imagine.  I have been given the help, strength, support, love, and anything else you can think of.  I am grateful to have seen things that others can only dream of, work with amazing people, try to inspire them to be better individuals, but most importantly, to be with my family.  To see my kids grow up faster than anything in the world, and to be able to unload all my troubles with an amazing wife by my side, I have nothing in the world to be down about.

I am starting to get things back in order, and I can get back to writing again.  I have missed the outlet and the creative side of me.  I can not wait to see what 2019 has in store for me, and I am looking forward to another trip around the sun with all the people that inspire me on a daily basis.

Sunday Before Advent

The rulers sneered at Jesus and said,
“He saved others, let him save himself
if he is the chosen one, the Christ of God.”
Even the soldiers jeered at him.
As they approached to offer him wine they called out,
“If you are King of the Jews, save yourself.”
Above him there was an inscription that read,
“This is the King of the Jews.”

Now one of the criminals hanging there reviled Jesus, saying,
“Are you not the Christ?
Save yourself and us.”
The other, however, rebuking him, said in reply,
“Have you no fear of God,
for you are subject to the same condemnation?
And indeed, we have been condemned justly,
for the sentence we received corresponds to our crimes,
but this man has done nothing criminal.”
Then he said,
“Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.”
He replied to him,
“Amen, I say to you,
today you will be with me in Paradise.” Luke 23:35-43 Continue reading “Sunday Before Advent”
