Time can be a friend,
Or an enemy,
It can be for us,
Or against us.
Some treat it like it’s not important,
They squander it, igore it, abuse it and just mishandle it,
We all have a limited amount,
No one really knows how much,
The older and wiser you grow
You learn how precious it is.
What are you doing with the time you’ve been given to live?
Life is about our choices,
I choose life,
We all need Faith to survive our trials, without it we are powerless.
Faith is not denying our problems, It’s acknowledging our God.
The questions to ask about your trials/problems:
What do you know about God?
Do you really believe in God?
What do you believe?
Are you disciplined and balanced?
If not, where do you struggle?
Pray and ask the Holy Spirit to guide you as you read scriptures that relate to what you need and ask him to send you a teacher to help you grow more and friend to keep you accountable.
Just how big is your God? The limits you set upon God will be the limits you set upon yourself.
Life always has many roads to go on,
The choice is ours to make,
There can be blessings, consequences, and things we leave behind,
At times we’ll encounter crossroads, Where both roads look favorable,
We can not just sit at a crossroad,
If we do our indecision will cause us to be pushed down a road.
It is with great care that we must decide which road to make our journey on,
Most of the time we get but one chance to decide,
If we try and go back the road may be destroyed or trampled upon
so traveling upon it will not be the same.
Sometimes we find people to travel with us,
If it is the right people, They will bring us joy and help on your journey.
I pray you remember to seek God’s help and you make the right decisions on you life’s journey and that your blessed to find the right people to travel with.
And False Realities,
From the enemy, From friends, family and loved ones,
And from your own mind.
The fire is to be within us,
and all around us.
It’s an all-consuming fire,
When the fire of God touches you,
And transforms you
You’ll never be mediocre
Or do things half way.
Take a chance on yourself,
Believe in yourself,
Invest in you,
And go all in,
You’re worth it! -Ruby Heaton
God said my people perish for lack of knowledge. so I’m posting this to inform Christians of the meaning and origins of Dia de los Muertos. Don’t open any doors for the enemy to harm you or your family. God makes it clear to make no altars to anyone or anything. He tells us in the 10 commandments. We are not to follow pagan traditions or worship.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Scholars trace the origins of the modern Mexican holiday to indigenous observances dating back hundreds of years and to an Aztec festival dedicated to the goddess Mictecacihuatl.

Día de los Muertos has both indigenous origins from the Aztec festival for Mictecacihuatl, The Lady of The Dead, and Catholic origins from the Spanish conquistadors’ All Saints and All Souls Day. The original Aztec holiday was actually a month long event, but when the Spanish conquistadores arrived and turned Mexico Catholic, the celebration became entwined with all saints day.
What’s up with all the skulls?
Skulls are everywhere during Día de los Muertos. The origins trace back to the pre-Hispanic era, when they were kept as trophies and used during rituals.
Lady of the Dead /The Skeleton Lady is the most recognized skull on Dia de los Muertos is the Calavera Catrina. The image as we know it today originated with her elegant broad-brimmed hat first appeared in a satirical engraving that Posada, a Mexican cartoonist, did sometime between 1910 and his death on Jan. 20, 1913. He wanted to mock those who pretended to be of a higher class, even if it meant starving, and going painfully thin, or without flesh. She became the most famous of Posada’s illustrations. Posada created her to poke fun at “people who pretended to be European, but weren’t,” said Mercedes Sierra, a visual arts professor at Mexico’s National Autonomous University.
Most Mexicans are of Indian descent, but given long-standing racism, many tried to look European with their clothing or makeup. So Posada created the elegantly dressed skeleton — “skeleton” being Mexican slang for someone so poor they couldn’t eat.
Those who celebrate Día de los Muertos will usually put up altars honoring those members of the family who have passed away. They decorate the altars with candles, sugar skulls, marigolds, food, beverages and clothes. These offerings, or “ofrendas,” are gifts for the dead. Like the holiday itself, the altar also has mixed imagery of both indigenous and Catholic background.
The enemy is always inventing ways to get to us. We must research whatever we get involved in. God tells us in his word to be wise and on alert at all times. The enemy prowls like a hungry lion looking for someone to devour. I felt God wanted me to warn you.
There is no perfection,
Some times our ideas get smashed,
And we get hurt,
But there is always a tomorrow.
With tomorrow comes a chance to get back up and make our lives better,
No more looking back,No more regrets, No more what if’s.
Take what you have learned and add to it.
Make some new plans and set some new goals,
Learn to dream again and go for your dreams…
