We know not the times or the gifts that are ours specifically and unequally you see someone at a Distance walking through a pastoral scene away and down a hill at first by voice recognition you Know who he is this grandfatherly figure brings a flood of feelings and moods to brush your soul With the telling of wonder of intimate days and moments you have shared so often you smile as He naps quietly and then a night comes where for one reason or another you get involved and the Whole night is used for this activity the next day being Saturday you relax and in the late afternoon You at first just set for what you think is a moment but the previous night delightfully and pleasantly Catches up with you sleep affords you this non cumbersome trip of ease and you awaken and it is dark At first groggy disoriented just like in a dream this logical but off answer is provided then you finally Figure out what is going on what surprise and pleasure to know you have been ambushed by a slight Tiredness that robed you in sweet bliss then trimmed it in solace you stir yourself and do minor things Until it’s the bed time hour but instead of the normal lights out its turn away from the computer shut off The television **** all the lights but one and then just purposely luxuriate in the soft amber glow it Provides set the rudder to take you to sweet wonder as you drift to unspoken destinations these are Truly simple joys where the need to be careful comes in we know even creation and all its splendors are Fragile a great rush of water with four feet of foam froth and power charges down it has a twin that is Separated by this mass of rock that rises upwards of fifty feet the water falls over it in a different way These strings of water that cover the face from one side to the other and they are accompanied with the Sweetest mist so you have this forked water show on both sides of powerful water all this glory of white Power rushing then falling and then the center piece contrasted to this sense such power and mass and The water is shear as it tenderly descends the mist is truly natures kiss the sound is the embrace the Engulfing privilege we possess and own as humans but this could be harmed and ruined in so many sad Ways thats why we are extraordinarily careful we want to preserve it for all times as human beings my Friends we also can by indifference and lack of understating can harm friends that in their own right Are spiritual streams that come from great spiritual head waters that were pristine and then one greater Than all of us caused such harm and destruction in the purist place a garden I wrote and posted Fertile Ground the great mind of Lincoln said in his day and he meant it for all of our history a nation as great as Ours can and must be sustained yes our armies and navy are a part but in his speech He says if “Destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher as a nation of freemen we must Must live through all time or die by suicide what constitutes the bulwark of our liberty and Independence it is not our frowning battlements our bristling sea coasts the guns of our war steamers Or the strength of our gallant and disciplined army these are not our reliance against the resumption of Tyranny in our fair land all of them may be turned against our liberties without making us stronger Or weaker for the struggle our reliance is in the love of liberty which God has planted in our bosoms our Defense is in the preservation of the spirit that prizes liberty as the heritage of all men in all lands Everywhere destroy this spirit and you have planted the seeds of despotism around you own doors Familiarize yourselves with the chains of ******* and you are preparing your own limbs to wear them Accustomed to trample on the right of those around you you become the fit subjects of the first cunning Tyrant who rises” sound words of wisdom that benefit all men we can’t release our responsibility and Expect a continuance of our freedom this is careful part of this piece Thomas Jefferson had this to say “I Tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just and his justice cannot sleep foe ever” what more Prized possessions do you own than family and friends but if we deny and ignore our duty to be men And women of righteousness how can we complain when civil authority in all manners deteriorates it Can stand on no higher moral ground than we the people ourselves maintain we are the streaming Waters of good or bad that flows through relationships ungodliness is a reproach to any nation by their Fruits they will be known like it or not eat sins treats fine but know this the soul that sins it shall surely Die it is a law an all living and loving father died to make sure no one could be a tyrant over you only Yourselves hold that power every devil in hell can assault you but never can he claim victory until he Sees the white flag of righteousness flying and it is saying I surrender my life of freedom bought by the Pure sacrificial lamb God’s own son you could practically tell he was human they whipped him with a cat Of nine tales with metal and bone he struggled down the Via Dolorosa each step declared your freedom The song says He could have called ten thousand angels and it wasn’t nails that held your Savior to that Cruel cross he had the ability to see everyone of us he knew how bitter and hard life would be if you Walk it without him He said my burden is light and my yoke is easy it might sound obscure today but it is Just as real walk beyond his love in disobedience and you will be punished by the god of this world and Then he will take you to his fiery home as his subject I wrote before you are his greatest trophy he has You on display in his lair because you are the greatest treasure God has not golden streets You fist loved me and my brothers and sisters the tears that I cry in private it says this is doing the work Of the savior increase my tears and sorrow because too many of them are hurting and know not your Comfort lost in a savage world not any longer their own a usurper took them captive love replaced by Cruelty is their lot if they could only see your painful longing as you look for them to come home every Day they would truly break ties to this fallen world and fly to your presence they believe the lie that they Have it figured out what sadness they are left with and they never have tasted your sweet spirit they Mistake the boundless love they feel as if it were your spirit of intimacy outward love doesn’t reach Inner depths satisfying to the point one person who cried stop no more I will die his love is truly deeper Than the sea even the universe and Carl Sagan a man of science he was an American astronomer Astrophysicist cosmologist author science popularizer science communicator sounds impressive but the Reality he had an assistant and she had to be brilliant to a degree to be working with him but she was More she was a born again Christian many were the years she loved and sought to help him not to just Love the Cosmos but love the one who made them her persistence was to no avail you can make a god Of many things even science how tragic he can be a warning guard your heart and you will preserve your Soul
Going to include Fertile Ground that includes Streaks of Jefferson and Most Hated Twins I put on there Lincoln said we should read such things
This important if you haven’t read it
Fertile Ground O thou great Jefferson in whom dwelled the fidelity of a nation of free men. Thy secretes can be viewed as we watch you live and breathe the life of a grand Virginia planter When one is a student of nature and observes its subtle lessons becomes its master and ally. The next Step of going to lead men is reasonable when taken into count the natural gifts that were refined in Quiet fields and hills in lengthy times of treasured solitude that is not to say there won’t be difficulties But to a merchandiser of lofty thoughts this is of little consequence. There are issues that must be Divined through the protracted business of hard arduous study. Man’s soul drifts in and out of the valley And hills taking unconsciously truths that exist they are everywhere but can be buried in life’s clamor. To purposely walk across a field with your with your senses open will usher you into a place quiet Unsettling if you are one who is uneasy in your own thoughts because the vistas will allow your mind to Extend it to the far reaches ordinary thoughts will jump over conventional restraints and give you Profound insights Jefferson graduated from this school of higher learning for this very important time This man of stature arose he flung freedom’s door wide open walked through set down at his desk and Masterfully penned immortal words, to this day time hasn’t diminished any of their importance or there Revered excellence this document would go unparalleled in type and execution, in forming the basis for Human conduct it would forever alter the landscape that that had existed before its grand arrival. The stinginess of former centuries were at long last over the mind had finally Liberated the body the willingness to do for one’s self had taken the lead there was no Turning back, these actions would recommend them as a people. Their credentials intact now they were Ready for the world stage a new birth of nobility walked into the human condition and it wasn’t In the least bit hesitant to speak thoughts that had long been silenced. The trouble today stems from the lack of understanding we have about the truth, Of what oppression would be unleashed if our form of government would be allowed to be dissolved we Love the dream but deplore the reality. That this system will only work when we are involved. It has a Built in detection device, you can’t use its rewards without paying it back with service. The results will be contagious you will be left with a weak sickly government. The remedy simple everyone has to be its central guardian. This does not mean that it is weak this was the way it was created it is as strong as you Are willing to have it know this it will always be dependent on human involvement. We might not like it but we are making a choice freedom will be loosed or bound by our decision. The product that we deal with is very supple and ever changeable it becomes whatever form you pour it Into this is in accordance with its nature it also is a gauge of those that handle its virtues and shows if You have had reverence or contempt. You will be left with honor or disgrace did you carry forth the gift Or allow it to waver the children of the next generation are watching. Streaks of Jefferson In freedom’s blessed glorified sky through streaks of immortal gold his visage we behold He looks upon the fields of liberty that he and the founding fathers sowed he sees the Richness America has become he also beheld her struggles catastrophic wars abroad And the most painful the one that divided the nation marred it with southern and northern Blood saw the affable the sad giant Lincoln take the reins of discontent hold them by Shear will and with uncommon sagacity guided it back in line to fulfill its destiny as the Powerful fount that would always pour forth waters of freedom for all of earths peoples Total unconditional acceptance of liberty and all the fruit it bears to establish a Government like no other this golden grain has waved under bluest skies and brightest Sun light its rich harvest has gone to darkest prison cells Mandela was sustained by it For twenty nine years and by its moral purity it fed the lives of those that over threw Apartied and Mandela finally freed by principals it avows rose from prison clothes To wear the mantle of president of his country and the honor of the man instilled Quality that transcended political office Jefferson not to be disrespectful to his progeny Whispers today’s politicians could do well to look on this African model of good Stewardship of public trust with that Jefferson faded back into the mist pray that’s Not the fate of this country Most hated twins Who are these two desperate characters revered but feared by all To make their acutance few will volunteer those who know them well All can tell by the drawn face and the tears that swell the pool where wisdom has her rule Achievers welcome them as honored guest they withstood the test now they the richest blest At mornings first blade of light they strike with all their might they the quickest to fight Timorous to afraid how many have dwelt by waters undying well only to die unfulfilled But others tried and they fell the well is to deep its where darkest shadows creep We will be lost in these new surroundings the familiar there will be water there too Yes stagnant unmoved guarded for naught its benefit was for the traveler going places For you it will be your grave marker he talked and talked but venture on never He said he was the clever one as his countenance slowly turned to stone killed by apathy Green pastures call to find them in yourself health you will install Few are they that were meant and born to reside in the same place you must go If you stay rebuild the common and ordinary your monument then they will admire Who stood to long and with all intention he gave it only words action was the wonder that was missing Treading a narrow path in the end if you buried or squandered your talent divine wrath you will face Cast your seed far and wide how can you not see the need sorrow has them tied Push back the encircling darkness with the light in your heart that God did endow Go and answer the door your guides are here I want you to meet two friends Pain and Adversity Two finer companions you will never know Washington and his men befriended them at Valley Forge Concord, York town. Lincoln met them first at Bull Run Antietam I think he gave a little speech at Gettysburg. One birthed a nation the other saved a divided one.
