how peace will be achieved.

IMG_6334howdy gang, just got back from the outer banks a few days ago. got some really pretty photos, will try and put some on here.

Here is some helpful maybe even interesting to you tidbits. We all want to live in a world where peace and security and prosperity abound. But why is peace and security elusive? Well lets examine this issue, what is peace, and security? Is it not a condition where one is at peace with himself and others and even with God? is it not also nothing to disturb that peace? no wars, criminals, creepy people and wicked people around? think about it what if all the liars and murderers, and theives and greedy persons were gone right now all in a puff of smoke?

What would the world be like? NO greedy ceos, corporate shareholders, no lying and hypocritical politicians, no impatient and hateful people around stealing your stuff, shooting people for no reason and no abuse of power, I mean what would life be like even with some of the other problems we have?

would it not be 90 percent better? now the question is which person are you, are you a honest, loving your neighbor, loving Gods laws and principles person or are you one of the ones that dissappear in a puff of smoke person? Think hard on this one, ask you self am I worshipping the creator the God of the bible the God of the universe properly?

how can you tell? well do your commit sexual immorality? do you commit homosexual acts? do you lie? cheat? steal? are you physically or verbally abusive to others including your family? are you patriotic? do you feel wars are justified in some situations? do you put sports, recreation, food and drink, drugs or other things ahead of God and his standards? According to the bible his standards are for our benefit, not his. Isaiah 48:17-18 and 1 John 5:3.

why are they to our benefit? what do you think? now imagine if you will if everyone obeyed say tho shalt not steal. now how much better do you think life would be if just this one principle was obeyed by all? Or how about if everyone on planet earth obeyed not murdering? now imagine in your minds eye what life would be like, how this would apply in all situations of life.

HOw about if no one commited sexual immorality. what would be the results? hum, no abortions, no disease transmission, no broken homes, no broke down society and communities,  and no one parent families (except in cases of death). Now how does that make you feel?

what if all obeyed tho shalt not bear false witness (encompasses more than just telling lies goes as far as not commiting fraud or false testimony in a court of law, or court of public opinion). no phoney or fake news stories, nothing written that is not true meant to stir up hatred for others based on race culture creed or color.

I mean it goes down to alot of the problems in society is just that people dont know or care about proper moral standards. there is no love of God no love of neighbor and no love of all the gifts God gave us. These moral and spritural values cannot be circumvented, you cannot plant a apple seed and get a pear tree no matter how hard you try to make it so. we reap what we sow.

we cannot sidestep Gods laws and principles and except good results, even if those negative results dont happen right away. people keep trying to, they keep looking ot men (such as scientists or politicians) to tell them good or bad right and wrong,  they keep trying to get around these standards, but to no avail, they even came up with the theory of evolution to avoid any accountablity or to be able to say the bible is wrong and we can do what we want without conseqences and when conseqences happen we ask for the government for a bailout or ask for others to shut up about the behavior, or to make it illegal to express a different opinion because it bursts the bubbles of those doing wrong as they try to pretend their lifestyle harms no one not even themselves.

So is God going to forever tolerate lawbreakers? well what if he did not intervene ever what would happen? Would not the world continue to be a place of suffering and injustice and misery? would not everything collaspe? econmically, materially, enviromentally, spriturally, morally? Woudl not the righteous be swallowed up by the wicked? How would you feel about a creator of all things who would just let the suffering and wickedness continue? could you love him? Would it be justice to let the bad people continue to harm the good people? Does not the conditions we see today sully the name of God or even destroy a belief in his existance? I dont know about you but I hate it when people suffer because of the bad actions of others and they get away with it, or get a light sentence. surly God is more rightous and just then me, surly he is more indiginant then even a lowly human like myself.

But why does he permit wickedness even for a short time? that my friend would take a whole another post.  A scripture I like to read to people is found at psalms 37:9-11 and proverbs 2:21-22 it gives us reason to believe that wicked peoples days are numbered.






chinese language

Howdy gang, me again, I hope everyone is feeling good today, not sick or tired or feeling depressed.  today I am writting to you about learning a new language.

I have been meandering and playing around with learning chinese.  I have several apps on my android and a few books helping to do this. what is interesting about this language is how the word structures are just so different.

example, You and I would say, I went to the library yesterday at something o clock, they say it I, yesterday, to the library, at o clock went,  something like this, or it is I yesterday, at o clock to the library went, not sure,  I am finding it hard to learn. it is a slow process for me. after a year and a half trying to learn it I still cant speak hardly any of it.

I am curious have any of you tried to learn chinese, or  korean or some language that is quite different from english or your native language? What helped you to learn it andwhat problems have you had?  what is really neat is if you google translate english into chinese it comes up and all you have to do is type your sentence into the box andit translates it into tradition or simplifed characters and I  use my pleco camara to translate to pinyin. really cool.

today it is so cold out and light dusting of snow I am like stuck in the house, not feeling well either, kind of feel like I am getting a sinus infection, hopfully just my normal allergies bothering me.  So I am looking at my grammar and reading and writting chinese text books I just got a couple of days ago.

anyway here aer some more pictures for you to enjoy.






outer banks again for 2016


ocracoke, look at all those birds around that ship, I used a 600 mm sigma long lens for these shots of ships


great shots you can even see the crew, while I was watching these guys a dolphin went buy close to shore


here is some more,


cormorant back of fatty resturant in buxton, at a salt water marsh that leads to the sound,


this guy I got alot of shots of, behind fattys resturant again, (if you want real honest to goodness ice cream their herseys ice cream is the bomb.)


ah what is over there, hark, it is my imagination running wild again invisioning me living by this lighthouse where I plant a giant red wood 100 feet from it and watch it grow to full maturity and die in God’s new world where death and sin and wickedness and property taxes and man made oppression will be gone. actually your laughing at me arnt you?


sunrise over the atlantic ocean, very pretty,


sunrise behind the lighthouse view motel, really nice motel you get a nice clean room at a reasonable price off season.


remember this plant from past posts? this was behind the falcon motel which is now in disrepair and being sold (the fence is damage by thepool and the pool was full of debris and stuff) now look at it after hurricane matthew


poor plant was so pretty now it is destroyed from the salt water flooding.


we fished on this soundside peir we were actually on our way to the aquarium when we came across this (and we also came across the visitor center for alligator river refuge and pea island refuge and allthe cool stuff they had inthere plus a gift shop which I naturally bought some pretty things there ) I did not catch anything but it allowed my husband to show me how to cast and now when something has the bait stuff like that.


bodie lighthouse,


my hubby fishing ocracoke island.  this is all for now.

unfortnantly we cut our vacation short, I was just so bored, my hubby couldn’t get to any fishing spots, even the private piers were closed due to federal consessions, whatever that means,  we had no access to refuges, swimming holes, beach access was by some parking on side of road or private access which we had permission to use, we couldn’t do anything we had planned and on top of that my monthly decided to pay a visit, could’t of been a worst time for it. no hiking swimming or fishing or bird watching I was only able to get a few pictures, I spent most of the time sitting around the hotel room trying to figure out where to go and what to do. so we just left.

big bummer, frankly I don’t know what the people in governments’ problem is, they simply do not understand who really owns nature.  taxpayers paid for the access roads yet they forget it is not their money. but I guess that is the nature of power, you lose touch with reality and live in a world of delusions. I do have a few pictures to show.
