Winter Solstice 2017

A day chosen to start anew.

The end of the old and beginning of the new. The shortest day gives birth to the growing light as darkness is beaten back a little each day.

Family, friends, jobs, this old world, all is relative and passes with time.  The one thing that remains is God; the Father, the Son, and the Spirit.

2018, Day 195

Spring’s gone, summer is hitting most places rather hard this year. Dropped off in Tampa & took a look at the boat. Made some lists and visited with some stores for pricing. Kinda productive, still have a long way to go before she’s ready for the water. But with the Grace of God it shouldn’t be to hard.

2018, Day 185

Galatians 5

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. 2Behold, I Paul say unto you, that if ye be circumcised, Christ shall profit you nothing. 3 For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. 4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith. 6 For in Jesus Christ neither circumcision availeth any thing, nor uncircumcision; but faith which worketh by love. 7 Ye did run well; who did hinder you that ye should not obey the truth? 8This persuasion cometh not of him that calleth you. 9 A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump.10 I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded: but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be.

As time marches on, liberty in America has been taken for granted. For some it means a license to engage in any type of behavior, to others liberty itself is what they worship, freedom for self.

The majority have forgotten this countries foundation and ideas of freedom are based on Biblical ideas and concepts given to mankind from the Divine.

My prayer is that the Spirit would revive the hearts of His children in this nation again, that they can understand freedom is a gift from our Creator and it is inherent in every human being.

Also, when that very freedom is abused God’s justice is waiting in the wings.

Righteousness and Justice are the foundation of the Fathers majesty, His love is part of that righteousness and mercy is part of His justice.

So don’t take your freedom for granted, it to is a gift from God.

2018, Day 160

Getting ready to head to Houston TX for a Monday delivery. Been in MO visiting with family while my truck has been in the shop for another week of refreshing repairs.

I’ve been running figures on repairs to Alchemy this fall, looking at potential jobs locally around the boatyard.

Lord willing I’ll be down south before October living and working on my 32 footer.

Getting into that groove is going to be my thing. Scheduling work, repairs, monies, social, and time.

Living on sailboat on the hard in a boatyard will, without a doubt, be interesting. Surrounded by folk who own boats easily worth $100k and me in my $3500 32 footer. With an easy 10k in repairs mine could easily match their kitted out boats on the open water, perhaps not in speed, but easily with comfort and seaworthiness.

Most sailors today rely completely on and cannot or refuse to sail without all of the modern high tech gizmos. If their motor goes out they get towed in, if their gps goes out they get towed, some have never hove-to in heavy weather, still others hug the coast not willing to sail during a squall.

I’m not ridiculing those who choose the above mentioned methods, to me though, its something I’m not impressed with. Sailing should be simple, uses skills that are time tested over centuries of sailing. Learn to rely on observation of your environment as well as the gizmos. Learn techniques to sail in heavy weather, learn simplicity and survival, never fight the seas, learn to live with the water in whatever condition its presented to you, from doldrums to heavy weather.

Always remembering only the Lord commands the seas, sailors only command their vessels.

Know the Lord, know your boat, know your skills & know the sea. Then go sailing.

2018, Day 125

Broke down in Lodi, CA with a coolant stream-leak.

Broke down in Sacramento for 4 days, forty miles then Lodi.

Broke down in Sparks NV for five days, hopped over Donner Pass then the Sac breakdown.

A three day trip extended into a two week plus trip. $15k+ in lost revenue & repair costs outside of warranty work is almost $3500.

Lessons learned?

Psalms 37

7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. 8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil.

Many things in life can teach us patience; work, family, large or small events. Nearly anything we experience can teach us something about our life and walk with our Savior.

Losing family and friends can be the hardest for some, for others personal battles and trials take precedence. Learning not to “fret” or stress when problems manifest themselves is something we as Christians need to learn. Stressors will come from every direction throughout life, with Jesus the Christ as our Savior, living within our hearts and minds, we have a light to look towards to help overcome those problems.

Not letting ourselves be overcome with anger but instead trusting in the Fathers work is a necessity.

So for me, I’m giving this to my Father because hoses busting, bearings going out, rods needing replaced, injectors failing; these are all out of my sight, internal issues. With routine maintenance being done, most potential problems and issues can be seen and averted, mechanical and wear items, not so much.

Lost revenue and time is something I can live with, breaking down while driving in motion with an eighty thousand pound vehicle is something I’m not overly fond of.

So I praise the LORD for the both the good times & the bad. There’s nothing less I can do for Him who suffered so much for me.

Bless GOD & God Bless you.

2018, Day 100

Second Corinthians 12
8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.

9And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

100 days into the Gregorian Year of 2018. Paul suffered “infirmities”… sickness, surviving sea three times, stonings, all kinds of thing Christians in the West would lose their faith if experiencing the same.

Today, Christians around the world are the most persecuted group of peoples, persecuted for believing in the name of Christ, persecuted for putting their faith first, before state or the world. In Muslim countries, African and Asian countries; across Europe and the west the faithful are ridiculed and pushed to the periphery of society. Persecution is growing, whether you believe or accept the facts or not, its only going to get worse.

In the scripture noted above, Gods Grace is sufficient for each of us, His strength reflected, shown, and experienced in our lives is made perfect in weakness. Someone may not understand this concept put forth by Paul, read below.

Galatians 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

Although we are children of GOD by faith in His Son, we still live in this flesh and experience the lusts of this old flesh. The spirit and flesh are constantly at odds, warring if you would, pulling us toward or away from our Savior and GOD’s will for our lives.

When this flesh is weak we are told our spirit is stronger.

We are going to receive another body, one that is glorified and not subject to the vile passions of this current model; the upgrade is going to be much better 🤗🤔🙄

Our spirit is closer to GOD during our times of weakness 🤕 because our current model is so flawed because of sin. 🙁

So stand firm in the knowledge that whatever happens to believers in regards to infirmities, as Paul called them, that it is for our greater good.

GOD Bless.

2018, Day 98

James Chapter 2

Faith without works is a dead faith, good works are a natural progression in the life a believer.

14What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16 And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. 18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar? 22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? 23And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. 24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

Does This Stunning Email Indicate Parkland Shooting was Just Another FALSE FLAG Designed to Take YOUR Guns?
by Dean Garrison

First and foremost, I want everyone to know that I am not saying that the Parkland Shooting was not a real tragedy.

When some people hear the term “false flag” they immediately shut down and feel that the “tin foil hat” guys are at it again. I am not contending that this was not a real shooting, nor that real people did not die on February 14, 2018.

However, I recently stumbled upon a piece of evidence, supplied directly from a D.C. cop, that makes me believe, with 99.9% certainty, that this shooting was a false flag event designed to further destroy the 2nd amendment. I never believe anything 100%. I am a truth seeker and try to keep an open mind.

I would ask you to keep an open mind as well because the information I am about to show you might do more than challenge your beliefs. It might shake you to the very core.

What if I told you that the “March for Our Lives” demonstration, which happened on March 24, 2018, was approved for a permit several months before it happened?

What if this demonstration was granted a permit long before the Parkland Shooting happened?

Would that cause you to question the current media narrative, and possibly your own beliefs?

Let’s look at a screenshot of an email from Scott Earhardt of the D.C. Metro Police:

The email clearly states that the permit application for the “March For Our Lives Demonstration” was approved several months in advance. How can this be?

The demonstration happened less than 6 weeks after the shooting. So how did they know that there would be a shooting that gave them a reason to demonstrate, before that shooting ever happened?

Wake Up America!

Here is some research and background information from my friend Dr. Eowyn at Fellowship of the Minds:

Public demonstrations, especially those that are large-scale like March For Our Lives, require a permit from the police department of the city in which the demonstration will take place.

European political researcher Ole Dammegard contacted the Metropolitan D. C. Police Department concerning the permit for the March For Our Lives demonstration in Washington, D.C.

Dammegard received this email from Officer Scott C. Earhardt of the Homeland Security Bureau of the Metropolitan Police Department:

Good morning,

In reference to your inquiry concerning the March For Our Lives Demonstration, here in the District of Columbia on March 24, 2018. MPD received a permit application several months prior to the actual event, and there was several months of planning for this large event.

If your are requesting additional information reference this event, please follow the below steps to file your Freedom of Information Act request:

If your have any additional question sor concerns, please feel free in contacting me directly.

Below is a screenshot of the email (source: Professor James Fetzer):

According to the PDF document, Metropolitan Police Department, Washington.D.C., Scott Earhardt indeed is a detective there. Here’s a screenshot I took from page 6 of the 65-page document:

Here are some facts:

The shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas (MSD) High School occurred on February 14, 2018.
A day after the shooting, on February 15, 2018, MSD students formed the group, Never Again MSD.
On March 24, 2018, March For Our Lives demonstrations took place in Washington, D.C. (and other cities).
Among the organizers of March For Our Lives is Never Again MSD, which had not existed before February 15.
The D.C. Metropolitan Police Department received a permit application for March For Our Lives demonstration “several months prior to the actual event”.

Questions:

How can Never Again MSD apply for a permit “several months” BEFORE the group had even been formed?
How can an application be made for a permit for a “March For Our Lives” demonstration “several months” BEFORE the Parkland MSD school shooting that galvanized MSD students to form the Never Again MSD group that organized the demonstration?

This information is breaking from multiple websites on this Easter weekend. Some are already saying that the email is a forgery. How will this be spun by the mainstream media?

Will they say that Earhardt made a mistake in his reply?

Will they discredit the source of the email?

What media surprises and spins await?

More than likely they won’t even acknowledge that this email ever existed and keep parading David and Emma out in front of you. Most people will never see this story at all because of the extreme censorship put on websites that challenge the mainstream narrative.

My job is to push the truth, as I see it, and not worry about those who are going to feast on everything that mainstream media feeds them.

Yes, America your government is so corrupt that they will allow (or maybe even plan for) your fellow Americans to die, IF it gets them closer to their agenda.

They want your guns. Every right that they take from you brings them one step closer to total power. So whenever you respond to tragedies like this by joining the chorus of those who demand gun confiscations, armed teachers, or more controls and restrictions on the 2nd amendment, you are doing exactly what they want you to do.

Stop falling for the smoke and mirrors and seek the truth.

The truth is the only thing that can save America from our corrupt political masters.

They don’t want to represent you. They seek to rule you.

That’s the sad but honest truth.

Stay vigilant!

2018, Day 82

There are times in our lives when change becomes a necessity, not only for you but for those in your life. At times it is the Lord directly guiding your path, hand in hand; other times He is the light off in the distance your looking at and heading toward in while on a darkened path. Regardless of the circumstances the Lord is near or right there throughout our lives.

Often when the Lord brings someone through or into our lives we miss that single encounter, maybe getting a scent or brush of what the Lord may have had planned. Hindsight being 20/20, we sometimes look back with regret at what “could’a been”, seeing later the opportunity that could’a been a life changer.

Regrets can bring the soul down to despair about what our lives could have been. Knowing when that regret’aconda snake begins to wrap itself around you is a must, when we see it slithering around we should move before it strikes. Once its coils wrap around you it becomes a fight to the death.

Jesus crushed the head of that serpent at the cross.

Regrets or despair aren’t directly from the Lord, they are part of being human though. When we experience either or both it isn’t always a Satan thing, it could be a learning thing being allowed to happen to help us learn and grow in our lives in Christ.

As Christians we should look as everything as a learning experience and determine if there is any scriptural correlations that we can apply to our lives.

When things begin to move in our lives that portend changes are about to happen, we need to ask the Lord for guidance, sometimes His answer is direct, most often its indirect. Someone or something passes close, maybe something is said in passing, maybe even that still small voice in your mind; whatever it happens to be, keep your heart and mind open, don’t let it slip by or it could become one of those regrets we missed.

Trees weather many storms as the grow, the Christian life is no different. We grow stronger with each season, roots reaching deeper, trunks and branches reaching out and upwards; weathering more and more storms, and hopefully baring fruit in its proper time.

2018, Day 70

1st Peter Chapter 3

10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

11 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.

12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

13And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?

14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;

15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:

16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.

17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.

18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;

20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God, by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

22 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
