Into The Mist

 

 

Seize The Day
Some say
Live for the moment
With nary thoughts of yesterday or tomorrow’s

Religious dogma teaches when you die you either ascend to the heavenly realms or you burn for ever in fiery torment.

Your fate depends upon how you lived your life on this earthly plain.

Most religions teach that after death we are as if we were sleeping, having neither thoughts or the privilege of any of our senses.

“James 4:14
Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.”

They give us the hope (an illusion ?) of being awakened through resurrection. Than we are judged by the ONE and all powerful creator of Heaven and Earth.

We are supposedly in his book of Good things and Bad things. This has throughout history put fear in the hearts of those that follow these teachings.

I was taught if you were not among the so called anointed class of 144,000 you had choices.

You either could live forever on a paradise earth or you indeed would invariably just cease to exist.

Therefore I ask ?

In lay terms IF we cease to exist, what is the difference ?

Our senses have been taken from us.

We rest eternally.

We feel nothing because we are non-existent.

(SIGHT) We see no more extraordinary sunrises or sunsets

(SMELL) We no longer linger on the essence of the rose

(HEAR) We no longer perceive the roar of life

(TASTE) We do not salivate over food that sustains us and gives us our strength

(TOUCH) We do not feel the pain of the thorn nor the experience the acquisitiveness of the petal.

The faculties of sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch have ceased

I live my life in the moment and I cherish my loved ones with all my heart

I do not fear dying.

I have lived many lifetimes.

I believe we are created by a higher power.

We strive too Live, learn and pass that wisdom before we cease.

Our knowledgeable memories go with us.

Our stories evaporate into the mist.

What is Going On

Murphy’s law is a popular adage that states that “things will go wrong in any given situation, if you give them a chance,” or more commonly, “whatever can go wrong, will go wrong.”

Xmas was in the mailbox.

A large package arrived from Amazon today. My Christmas. They knocked once and I answered right away and they were already half way back to the truck. I yelled next time at least wait till you see the white’s of my eyes. Anyways, I am going to write about this as it is too detailed.

Tune in for what was in my package.

Got up at 8 AM. I made coffee, cut up greens for all the 10 birdies, fed the cats, checked on Hempy down under in his bedding without disturbing his slumber. I always ask him too give me a sign he’s still breathing and he moved his bedding for me.

I put make shift bath bowls in all three cages.

Checking the laundry card to see if it works and the $20 was put back on it.

Tomorrow, MY Blood-stone RING is out of pawn.

Dr. appointment at 1. They haven’t canceled yet so this is a good sign.

Pay the rent at the office, get clean filters for the AC.

Gordon’s Surplus for big bag of fries. My big bag of veggies I use mostly in my stir fry’s and food fodder for my Zoo.

Hempy gets a few peas tonight. He is so fat, he longer runs. I want to slim him up a bit so he remains active instead of sleeping all day and night.

No shame with Hempy (Bottom’s UP)

Darn card for laundry finally came and it doesn’t work. So over this crap. I paid the rent. I am going back to bed. The laundry fairy has off today. Calling them right NOW. They promised a call back today? This is after the four I sent back for the same reason. They didn’t work.

Weird ASS Day.

My Chimes Music CD that I just played disappeared after taking it out of player. I burned another one, it’s playing.

Now my cell phone that says it’s charging. It is off.
It does not come on.

I have an extra sim but it is probably the battery.

AND to round my day out Days Of Our Lives did not record.

Called cell phone provider, they called me back and wala phone is on and working again.

Just washed my hair and showered. Making a cup of tea so I can finally try to relax after this odd day.

and , something else that is for my personal persona.

Blessings and Peace to the family’s of the two men who perished during Storm Goliath on December 27 th 2015.

Chase Morland 22 years old. Reports say he died from hypothermia and drowning. He was found a day after the boat most likely went down. It was so cold. They had to be really determined to go out into that mess. They had to know the dangers.

The last post Chase made on Twitter was

We might not be back, going into the storm

Sam ( Craig’s dog) swam a shore and stayed with him till he was recovered.

Sam continued to pace the shoreline.

For Craig Strickland

I saw the photo on their Facebook profile ( Backroad Anthem)

It was a big part of his life. (Backroad Anthem lead singer)

He was recovered today. Off shore line by about 75 yards. He was wet from the boat capsizing. Why did it take so long to find him ? At least he made it up the hill and out of the water. He must have known his Jesus was near. His arms were found in the shape of a cross.

May his family now have the closure they so needed.

 

Key West Boat Kids

Wisteria Island, also known as Christmas Tree Island, is a federally owned, uninhabited island in the lower Florida Keys 645 yards (590 m) northwest of the northwestern corner of the main island and city of Key West, Florida, Monroe County, United States. It is located 280 yards (260 m) north-northeast of Sunset Key (Tank Island), its closest neighbor.

Wisteria Island has an area of 0.04 mi² (0.1 km²) (exactly 106346 m²). The nickname Christmas Tree Island comes from the large number of Australian pine (casuarina) trees that grow there. Large numbers of live aboard boats are moored near the island.

In 2005 Key West was inundated with not one but four Hurricanes.

Hurricane Wilma was the one that had the Gulf meeting the Atlantic. The flooding and destruction were something some have never recovered from.
