-GOD

Some might say that we live in the greatest nation on the planet and while I agree, that could be changing rapidly. In the shadows of plain sight there are movements to change what makes us great. The very fabric of what makes a nation great is being unraveled by individuals that only seek their own personal gain. They only want your Clicks, your Likes and your Money! While today we exercise our freedoms every second of every day, those freedoms themselves add fuel to those who want to take them away. We sit behind our screens spouting off remarks and acting tough, sending others that don’t agree into fits of rage. Thus, becomes the Squeaky Wheel! One by one social media makes more and more Squeaky Wheels. Wheels that feel the need to be acknowledged or have a safe space to display their participation trophies of everyday life. Words of hate fly back and forth while closed minds and hurt feelings scream FIRE!

As the FIRE burns these platforms, corporations and politicians dig deep to appease the Squeaky Wheels. They don’t care about YOU, how you feel. They only lust for your clicks.  Fighting hard to silence those who only want to exercise the same freedoms. But you don’t Squeak, do you? You Live each day like the last, believing the good in others. You work hard and you’re a good person. You are the majority.

While they Squeak loud its almost defining! Those in power fear them while loving them. They are new NEWS and new click and new likes. They are income! So, the powers will bow to these few yet loud Squeaky Wheels. They will tell you they are right and you are wrong and that they can speak and you cannot. They chip away at your freedoms piece by piece. Their Freedoms are NOT your Freedoms any more. Your words hurt them and you are wrong. It’s the Freedom Paradox

It is without question that our time on social media is one of the worst things in modern society. Our continued addiction to these platforms that contribute to the spread of hate and false information.

See how they do it here!

Set yourself free!!

1. “Unless it’s mad, passionate, extraordinary love, it’s a waste of your time. There are too many mediocre things in life. Love shouldn’t be one of them.” – Dreams for an Insomniac

2. A Husband can love his wife BEST when he loves God FIRST.

3. I love you. You annoy me more than I ever thought possible. But I want to spend every irritating minute with you.

4. “A Perfect Marriage” is just two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other.

5. “If you want something to last forever, you treat it differently. You shield it and protect it. You never abuse it. You don’t expose it to the elements. You don’t make it common or ordinary. If it ever becomes tarnished, you lovingly polish it until it gleams like new. It becomes special because you have made it so, and it grows more beautiful and precious as time goes by.” – F. Burton Howard

6. “More playing. Less arguing.” – Fierce Marriage

7. ‘Being in love’ — is not merely a feeling. It is a deep unity, maintained by the will and deliberately strengthened by habit; reinforced by the grace which both partners ask, and receive, from God. – C.S. Lewis

8. “Unless you love someone, nothing else makes sense.” – E.E. Cummings

9. “So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.” – Nicholas Sparks

10. “She was my dream. She made me who I am, and holding her in my arms was more natural to me than my own heartbeat. I think about her all the time. Even now, when I’m sitting here, I think about her. There could never have been another.” – Nicholas Sparks

Why does Facebook become a JOB? At what point is it on your TO-DO list to review your Facebook feed to make sure that you are up-to-date on everyone else’s business? What about the life you are living? I am disgusted how real life, real friends, real Family are taking more of a back seat to the drama of Facebook. You might think that you are not on there much an you own posting activity might show that but spending every free second on your phone looking and messaging takes time away from the people that should really matter. This is why we fail! Our own greed to have something of our very own leads to secrets and lies. We pretend everything is innocent but we know if our significant others saw what we did on-line it would be the end to whatever relationship you might be hanging onto. Why is it so hard to just be happy with what we have rather than painting a fake picture of your life for the world to see? It’s not the real you at all. Why be fake? How can you pretend to care so much in one way yet the online profile of your life looks so very different? Who is it to impress and whose attention are you looking for?

It’s a new definition of honesty where sleight of hand can make you into anyone you want. But with anything that easy it will never last. You will create wounds that cannot heal, lose the most basic trust from those around you. You will not see it coming… But one day you will wake up alone and ask yourself what happened with no understanding that YOU DID this.

In time the truth will become clear but it will be far too late. Only then will you understand the frustration and pain that you caused living behind a mask.

I don’t know about you but I am still on this adventure called life but lately the road has become very bumpy. I can only say that a long and difficult season has rendered the path damaged. At one time I believe that I could patch anything and thought this was going to be the same. I was wrong. Heaven and Earth are clearly in a state of aggravation and power where one will resist the other VS the harmony we knew just a short year ago.

I have said it before and I will say it again. BE NICE! BE Honest! BE There! These simple rules can change your world.

You are welcome. Feel free to worship me for I have froze it over. The unfortunate side effect could result in higher gas prices. For that I’m sorry. Go back to your day of cold self doubt and sorrow. Only your heart can warm you.

Listen. Do not blame me for this weather. Or global warming. You should have been paying attention to the signs. You made your bed… The next move is yours.

What do you do while still remaining human?

From time to time I get the feeling that the world is spinning too fast. Out of control and about to crash, overwhelming feelings of helplessness fill me. What are we doing? Why the rush to see our ends? Bitterness, selfishness, entitlement… The distance from human to human is growing and our connections are being cut while the elutions of connections are painted in virtual space.

Step back for a moment and see how alone you have become. Now pause, look around. This is your life. Smell the air while the clouds slowly drift by. You’re experiencing life. In this moment while your virtual mask is off new experiences are yours. Take them.

Living is not the picture created from a keyboard. Fractures of them and us and you are all anyone sees. It’s all getting lost in the cliff notes of life.

It’s almost too late.

Fix it!
