Lies

Beware

Of Lies,

Deceptions,

Illusions,.

And False Realities,

From the enemy, From friends, family and loved ones,

And from your own mind.

Fire

The fire is to be within us,

and all around us.

It’s an all-consuming fire,

Eye opening,

Life altering,

Soul moving,

Transforming fire.

When the fire of God touches you,

Fills you,

And transforms you

You’ll never be mediocre

Or do things half way.

Be aware of what things mean.

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.

Rise Up and Move On

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.
Move on-
Make some new plans and set some new goals,
Learn to dream again and go for your dreams…

The Narrow Road

You will come to many crossroads on your journey called life,

Some will cause major change,

Take time to decide wisely because many will have no turning back.

The roads you travel on will be lonely at times,

Some of the places you travel to no one will follow,

Others you travel on some won’t be able to keep up with you,

Sometimes there will be pruning and humbling taking place,

Other times you need the solitude to listen and for growth and reflection,

Some you will leave a trail of tears on,

Others will echo with your laughter.

You determine the destination and what the roads have in store for you.

Do you know that you are unique,
That there is no one else like you?

There is always hope?

It is true. Just ask God to show you the truth. It’s that easy.

He’s the one who always loves you, no matter what…

Remember This

Not everything you see or feel is real.

Everything does not hold value.

People are of more worth than things.

 

Seek out what is real,

And Seek out what really matters. – Ruby Heaton

What Do You Say?

Some say they feel anxious,

And Out of sorts,

And they don’t why.

Some say life feels empty,

They haven’t found found their” why?”

I know we all are lost until we find the one our heart longs for,

The one who created us.

Who understands us,

Who has great plans for us.

He is waiting for you to reach out to him.

It’s easy just say God come into my life,

Show me the way…

A Man’s Thoughts Hold Power

 

What a man believes is crucial.
A man’s thoughts have the power to make
or break him.
His thoughts create who he becomes
Or destroys who he should have been. –  Ruby Heaton
