I’m Wrong!!! 2018-64

I’m Wrong!!!!   2018-64

I was writing a blog or a post to publish and I realized something. What I was stating, made sense, but had no meaning to some of those who would read it; I think!

What I was writing had a message to any that took the time to read it. The post had some flaws to it. It was TOO long, TOO intense, TOO serious, and perhaps just TOO everything.  SO, I’m Wrong!!!!!

Maybe a few or select group of people would get something out of it and appreciate what I wrote. I believe, just now, that the world likes bullet points and not TOO many words of discourse to ponder or contemplate. My fault.

My PC counts words in a document like most PC’s do, and I try to keep the total number of words between 500 and 800 words to a post.  Now, I think that is TOO much for today’s reader to struggle through. My fault.

Another thought.  My posts have NO pictures, none, just words. The saying that a picture is worth a thousand words or 500 or 800 and does not make anyone think about anything; just laugh, giggle, and might require a “Oh Gee, how nice” comment makes me realize that using just words might require an actual thinking process comes to mind.

A good or great indicator that I am correct is the lack of anyone telling me that I am wrong in the subject that I am writing about. So, the realization that I may be making sense to a subject is lost.

Maybe I should include some words like the F-Bomb or use other vulgarity that is spicy to entice those that could care less about the subject at hand to get interested in what I write. Hmmmmmmmm!

Nah, NOT going to happen. Why!? Because, just like Rhett said in the movie “Gone with the Wind”, “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.”   I succeed in accomplishing my main goal in writing my blog or posting on FB. What is that?

Well, out of my infernal brain, my posts explode and onto paper, or on the PC, and now they can be forgotten; gone forever from my mind and onto the ethernet, where they can lie at peace.

Release, release, now free, not to torment my inner self anymore.

Peace Finally,                                                                                                                     397 Words Total

Blogging Back 2018-05

Blogging Back!!! 2018-05

I’m Back!, to begin Blogging again!!! Hiatus basically is over, not long gone, just a respite……
The reason for my doing so (blogging) is to get the thoughts out of my mind,
And by blogging, I feel that I will continue to accomplish my goal.
If you do NOT read my blogs, so be it; that is Ok with me!
If you do NOT like or appreciate my blogs, so be it; that is also, OK with me.
If there is an unknown positive outreach to my blogging for you, that would be great.
My blogs will have a message of some sorts, and if you get the message, GREAT; if not, too bad….
I will give thoughts on various religious things, poems from the past, quotes from famous people, etc.
Regardless, may you have a good life, and know I love you as a person regardless.

I WELCOME any comments, good, bad or indifferent, that you may have. If you desire to do so, you can at Word Press or send an email to me at the above address. I would be interested in hearing from others and in doing so, may be enlightened, change my mind, or maintain my thoughts as they are now

BLOG – Going, Going GONE—- 2018-04

BLOG – Going, Going, GONE  2018-04

 

After thinking about my blog, I have decided it is time to take a hiatus from blogging. I might blog again or might not do so, in the future.

My blogging did accomplish what I wanted, so it was not a waste of my time. If it was a waste of the readers time, so be it.

I learned much, about myself in the process and many things about one commenter of my blog in particular, and that was good.

I will miss blogging, but doubt that my blogs will be missed by many others, and that is ok.

Maybe, I will take up painting on canvas.

The one thing that I will leave with you is something I have said many times:  God is alive, He is active, He is aware and ALWAYS present around and within us.  Thanks be to God!!!!

Peace,

What n When to BLOG in 2018-01

What n When to BLOG  in 2018-01

I am a self-avowed Christian as many know. But if you did not realize this is a fact, I state it now!!

Sometimes when I write, I might think I am writing to only Christians, and, in reality, I know I am not doing so. I do know that I am getting out to people of many faiths, no faiths, as well as various ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

I would not try to offend anyone, but do know that if someone objects with what I write, they have the option of not reading what I write. The one rule I have is I will NOT get into a debate with anyone in a blog about religion or faith, although I would welcome any comments about what I write.

If I were to be asked how do I identify myself, my reply would be, “I am a disciple (student) of Jesus Christ” and might add, “and not a good one at that.” I am learning though, but it is a slow process.

I am not out to convert anyone from their faith or religious denomination, chastise someone for how they believe, pray or do not do, or if they attend worship at a place of worship or other agenda regarding God.

If someone does not believe in God, so be it. That is their prerogative. If any one is given any insight, make them think, or challenges anyone, because of what I write, I think that will be great, period….

I look forward to 2018 with the ability to write, explain, discuss, disclaim and again challenge, and most of all welcome others to experience what I have been doing, loving the journey of becoming closer to the one God of the Universe.

Peace,
