I will miss him. He was a great actor. He was an inspiration to many of us and he set a great example for our generation.

Patrick Stewart to Return as Star Trek‘s Jean-Luc Picard And The Internet Is Pretty Excited — TIME

I don’t know about you but I started watching Star Trek when I was a kid because my mom loved the original Star Trek. I liked the original Star Trek movies, but didn’t care for the shows. I really like Star Trek: The Next Generation  and loved their moves so much more. Captain Picard was a great character. He was a firm leader, kind man, gentleman, and even a romantic now and then. I can’t wait till it comes back. I wonder who else  may return.

The internet couldn’t be happier about the latest Star Trek news. In a thrilling announcement, Patrick Stewart, everyone’s favorite British actor, revealed that he would be returning to television in a new Star Trek series based on his iconic character Captain Jean-Luc Picard. The franchise series, which will run on CBS All Access, will focus…

It is Hard but, Forgive and Forget

I know we all have hard times in life and we want to blame it on someone other than ourselves. There are some people that the only person they can blame is theirself. Although we should not hold a grudge on anyone especially ourselves. We need to forgive. It does take time, space, and acceptance; but once you can forgive you will have peace. I have shared this video on my music page on my blog, but I want people to see it even more. This song has helped me through life, has helped me accept the hard times as a trial of God, and has lead me in the direction of Salvation of Jesus Christ. I will explain this all to you, but if you wish listen to the song, turn of any noise, put away any distractions even your smartphone unless you are reading my blog from it, and listen not with your ears, but with your heart.

Don Henley

The Heart of the Matter

Lead Me To Salvation

When I was not even a teenager I was the one the kids picked one, beat up, and threatened in school. The only way my mother could see to stop it was take me out of public school and place me in a Christian (Baptist) school. I had no idea what religion was like, I was about to learn.

When I was in school I learned the Bible everyday and had chapel on Fridays. My fifth grade teacher talked to me about Christ and Heaven. She told me He came here over 2000 years ago to die on the cross and rise again the third day to cleanse us of our sins. She also told me we have to have faith and be saved in Him to go to Heaven. Now I was a little unsure back then because before then I had no idea of Heaven or Hell. I also wondered if I sinned again did I need to get saved again. For example a Christian is crossing the road and then sees headlights of an eighteen wheeler coming at the and says a “bad word” do they go to Heaven or Hell. I did learn that once you are saved you are saved unless you reject God and tell Him you no longer want your Salvation. Now you may be wondering how I got to this. This was the time I first heard this song, “The Heart of the Matter”.

I loved the music of the Eagles and when I found a CD of Don Henley’s I had to have it. My mom bought it for me and when I heard the song it took my breath away. It froze me and had my full attention.  When I heard these lyrics is when the tears started to flow and still do, “And the struggles we went through, How I lost me and you lost you, What are these voices outside loves open door, Make us throw of our contentment, and beg for something more.” Here is where my eyes are tearing, “I’m learning to live without you now, but I miss you sometimes, the more I know the less I understand all the things I thought I knew I am learning again,  I’ve been try to get down to the heart of the matter but my will gets weak and my thought seem to scatter,  so I think it’s about forgiveness, forgiveness even if I don’t love you anymore.”

This just reinforced what my teacher was talking to me about when it came to Salvation. The “struggles we went through” for example. We all go through struggles everyday and i was going through a lot at the time. They are trials given to us by God to test us. Also ‘I lost me and you lost you” without Jesus Christ as Savior we are lost. The “voices outside loves open door”‘ is temptation, deception, sin and “something more” is Salvation. We do learn to live with God and we could do that for a long time, but He will keep sending us His Word and never give up. Then when I did “get down to the heart of the matter, my will got weak, and my thought did scatter, so i sought forgiveness, forgiveness” and I was saved in Jesus Christ and baptized at the Door of Fellowship in Williamsport, PA. I was born again. If you want to be saved just say a prayer to God and as for forgiveness of your sins, let Him know you are now dedicated to Him, ask him to show you the way to His path, and ask him to cleanse you. If you want to read the Sinners Prayer read Psalms 51.

Gives Me Peace

This is a very peaceful song. When I have a bad day or tension between family or co-workers I listen to this song. It gives me peace. I don’t know why, but it soothes me like a hurricane becoming blue sky and still water. We all need peace for a few minutes in a day. This is what does it for me. Even when I am at work I stop and listen. I have pulled over before to listen. I believe this song was a gift from God to us. It is sad that love isn’t always simple. Sometimes relationships end and it is no one’s fault. Everything happens for a reason and the reason of this song is for peace in the heart. I hope you like this song as much as I do.

‘Roseanne’ minus Roseanne: ABC orders ‘The Conners’ for fall 2018

ABC is pulling a “Hogan Family” move in the wake of cancelling “Roseanne” last month: It’s ordered a 10-episode spinoff called “The Conners” that will feature the show’s cast, minus Roseanne Barr, according to TV By The Numbers. The network pulled the plug on the “Roseanne” revival, its top-rated show in 2017-18, on May 29 after Barr sent a racist tweet about former Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarret. Talk of a spinoff focused on the rest of the Conner family has percolated since then.

4 Ways that Dads are Essential in the Lives of our Kids

I have had issues in my childhood and growing up into adulthood with my step-father. I read this article and I fully agree. I wanted to share it because I did not have a great childhood.

The main issue I had according to my source is I did not have enough play time, interactions, with my step-father. I agree with this because when I reached my teen years getting into sports he did not want to do anything with me. He set what he wanted to do higher than being a father to a “son”. Today I try to avoid him and not talk to him.

I am telling you this because there are so many divorces today. Children have step-parents, step-siblings, and half-siblings. When the children are growing up and when they become adults you, the parents, need to make them feel like part of they family. If they want to get involved in a social activity like football, boy scouts, girl scouts, band, or anything else that would help them in life, support them. Always listen to your children no matter what. When they are trying to tell you about their problems for the day or just something that is bothering them, listen. If you don’t then you are dwindling their respect, trust, and honor for you. They will always love you, but when they grow up into adulthood and have a big problem sometimes going to talk to mom is the best choice. If mom or dad loses trust then they will not go to the parents. If the parents lose respect no matter what the parents advise them they are more than likely to do the opposite. I was always taught as a child to respect my parents, but growing into adulthood I learned respect is earned. I also learned respect can be lost. I do agree one must always respect the ones higher than them, like parents or a boss, but that can be loss and then it is just tolerating the person. One of my favorite verses in the Holy Bible I am going share in closing. The last thing I want to say is always respect each other and show kindness to everyone. Maybe one day everyone will be happy.
