The Life we Live… Love it… Love it More… Always Hope… Hope never quits…

When I have my days… boy, do I have them…

Could not be better - thank you Lord....

Could not be better – thank you Lord….

This is a day after the office – or my office that is… I know longer toe the line in a corporate office – so life is mch better – most would think…

Getting here is thanks to a huge, long, tedious journey….

Our journey through the years... starting at the bottom... walking forward hope...

Our journey through the years… starting at the bottom… walking forward hope…

If you thought you’ve hiked a few trails – well – maybe you have… I remember hiking over 825 miles of the Blue Ridge –> Shenandoah –> the canoeing the New River from Boone NC to Crater Lake State Park, VA. – however, we only made it to Galax/Fries VA because of 7 solid miles of class 7 rapids…. There were 13 of us – 5 canoes, I was in a 2 man ones – we were the last to actually go down too… We held our own really well, trying to collect critical Army duffel bags along the way – allowing canned goods and other superfluous things to sink/float down. We made it 5 of the 7 miles. Eventually we gathered everything at the huge flood wall in Fries…

Those were the days of hiking it…. Then there is the largest of all hikes we all must take – the hike in life – pushing on to our Hopes, Dreams, Goals, what we believe is our calling in life…

At my age – I would think I’d know my calling in life. Well, in part, I know what I want it to include…. I want God the Father as my Father…. I did not have much of a dad growing up, and no mom at all after the age of 7…. Such was my life – such grew my Hope. As I got older, I learned that the truth behind real salvation was quite simple when looked at for what it is….  We recognize that God sent Jesus Christ as His only begotten Son, to live and due on the Cross – the worst, most horrible of deaths – for our lives. And that on the 3rd day, Christ rose from the dead and revealed Himself to many. He shared that, if we but confess our sins, and repent of those, and confess Him as our Lord and Savior, in Christs’ Name, Amen – then we are saved – for eternity. Nothing extraordinary there – but oh, how extraordinary it is 🙂

When I see great and small miracles, super, and small prayers answered, in all,  then I know it is our Lord and Savior, reaching out to help us without anything flashy. He’s already worked all of the flashy signs nd miracles some 2018 years ago. Now He indwells us via his Spirit, and we would not have to worry about seeing miracles, we believe, by faith.

As I grew even older, this grew stronger. I’m a sinner, Under the Law, I’m condemned to hell eternally. Under Christs’ Crace, In His Name, I’m saved, for life eternallll That’s been my HOPE.

The Bible says that God knows what we need before we ask for it – but I still pray for our needs, desires, wants…. Mostly – that we see His path for our lives, His will for our lives, and have the discernment to follow it. I do indeed, in Christs’ Name…. Amen…
