(Philosophy/Poem) Ignorance Pure Ignorance

 IGNORANCE PURE IGNORANCE

 

Hiding from the truth, but do we even know what it is

Yet it is something that we sometimes try to do

Our own secrets and truths we can’t hide from

Ignorance, pure ignorance, living like a fool

With age we all can look back at our mistakes

Back at the path of life we all chose to allow

 

 

looking back at all the faded smiles in our memories in time

Did we make the calls, or leave loved ones waiting by the phone

Did our ink upon much paper dry or did we even try to write

Does our own family know our hand like a fingerprint in time

Does our family we say we love even know the details of our face

Without love life is but wasted time, so have we wasted our life

 

 

Ignorance, pure ignorance the guilt of a wasted life

Tonight upon my bed I decided to change how I live

In time of deepest thought do we have anything to say

Was I only dreaming when I heard a voice speak to me

These words in night sleep said, ignorantly is how I lived

 

 

These last words that we hear in this prayer tonight, are they fit to be our last

Will they be the last this life has left, if we never hear the spoken word again

The Holy Spirit saying to my Soul did you do the best that you could have done

Does our conscience ever ask, why did we choose to live our life the way we did

Ignorance, pure ignorance the Angel says as he throws us into Hell’s fiery pit

Four Thoughts Of Philosophy; 2 From Scripture, Then 2 Thoughts/Questions from Me

 

Two of these peaces of thought are from two Old Testament Scripture, the first is part of a prayer from Moses in the Book of Psalms the 90th Chapter. I got this idea from another blog about 2 or 3 days ago but I don’t remember which one, this prayer was part of that article. In slots number 2 and 3 I am going to drop in a couple of pieces of thought that I have jotted down the past couple of days. Then I am going to finish off this article today with a ‘thought’ from the Prophet Daniel. Please feel free to leave me comments on your thoughts, it is good to try to learn what other people think, and sometimes maybe even why they think different from we do, or maybe the same as we do.

1). The very strength of age is sorrow. What then is its weakness? Covet not extreme old age; but know that if it comes God must be our portion, or else life will be a burden.

2). This is why the whole world needs to be under a Socialists system folks: because that at the end of the day the only thing counts is who made the most cash today! When the masses are not needed even if their labor were totally free. When you are not making anything and you are costing someone else, then why should the top .1% continue to pay your way. O, but now what? Do those “little people” get to live a free breath? Or to be allowed to breathe at all? If all do not care for each other than there is no chance for the whole to survive without massive bloodshed at some point in time to either eliminate, or to care for each other.

3). Should there be storage sheds filled with excess food set back for the wealthiest of the world’s population? Personally I don’t see anything wrong with that being reality for some people if that is what they wish to do. With one notable exception or disclaimer if you will. That being okay as long as there are no people in the world going hungry at this same snapshot in time. If I have extra food and water yet I allow my neighbors to die from starvation or thirst, I fear looking our Lord in His eyes if we are guilty of such at on our Judgement Day.

 

4). This is from the Book of Daniel 9:3-4

And I set my face unto the Lord, to seek by prayer an supplications, with fasting, and sackcloth and ashes:

And I prayed unto the Lord my G-d, and made my confession and said, O Lord, the Great and Dreadful G-d. Keeping the Covenant and mercy to them that love Him, and to them that keep His Commandments.

 

Just wondering what your thoughts on these pieces of thought are. I hope you are all able to have a great weekend, stay safe, God bless.

 

Our Age

Our Age

I have a simple question that I would like to pose to you. It is a question that most everyone in the  world will know the answer to, but there will be many different answers given. What is it, it is simply this, how many years old are you? Me, this calendar year if the Lord is willing, I will be 58. Like a lot of kids when I was young I couldn’t hardly wait to turn 18 so that I could get out of the living situation I had when I was a kid. Shortly before I turned 18 the drinking laws reverted from 21 to 18. But I was never really much of a drinker because I had seen adults getting drunk and acting like idiots and dumb asses my whole childhood and I really didn’t want to act like that myself. So the drinking age change was of little value to me except when a date wanted a bottle of wine I would now be able to get it for her. As a young man I guess I never thought too much about getting old and the changes that age does to a mind and body. This is probably because I never thought I would live to see 30. I remember though in moments of deep thought what it would be like to live long enough to see the year 2000. I remember when that did happen I went outside right after the Ball dropped and laid on the hood of our car with my back against the windshield closed my eyes and thanked the Lord for His kindness. The year 2000 was the year that my Mom was killed in a car wreck though, it was exactly three weeks before her 70th birthday. In 1993 my Dad died at the age of 66, so it seems in our DNA becoming an ancient one is not likely. My heart Doctors thought I would be dead about ten years ago but for some reason the Lord is still walking with me.

A couple of things that have happened here this week  has put me on the thought path of age. A real good friend of mine turned 59 last week and my wife who is 48 but will have a birthday soon and is seemingly depressed at the thought of number 49. I know that for a lot of folks the birthday’s that end with a zero causes them a lot of stress and it does appear that my Bride is one of them. Then there is my sweet Sister who, Lord willing, will hit the big 60 this fall. Since I was injured while in the Army I always say a prayer of thank you to our Creator for being so kind as to allowing me to see another year.  I took a break this morning to watch my local news and a bit of the Good Morning America program and heard that Shirley Temple died yesterday, they said that she was 85. This is a woman who lived an extraordinary life, if you are a person who doesn’t know who she is go ahead and Google her.

In the time that Mrs Shirley Temple Black walked here among us she used her God given time well, but my question is, have you? Have I, that answer for me has to be no, I have been a screw up most of my life. When you know that your time is fading and you know that it is a truth that when you tie your shoes in the morning that it could easily be the undertaker who unties them tonight, this reality can make one drift off in thought as to how you have performed your life. What I have learned in my life is to be thankful when I open my eyes each morning and to thank the Lord each night when I put my head down on my pillow. We are all given much more grace than we deserve (in my opinion), at least that is the truth in my case.

The reason for this little message today is to speak with each of you personally about the path of life that you are on. I just want all people to spend a little quiet time with just yourself and God (if you are a believer) and to take a good look at the path in life that you are on. Are you happy in your life? If so, consider what you need to do in your future to continue in this blissful life. If you are discontent spend some quiet time with your thoughts and consider what have you experienced in your life path that has put you where you are. Now, just take a pen or pencil and write down the little things that you would like to see change in your life. Now write a commentary beneath it on what you need to do to get that event behind you so that you can go onto the next event you would like changed in your life. If we chip off the foundation of a big problem soon that big problem will fall to the ground where we can kick the air out of it to. I would just like it if everyone could be living a content life style, but such a miracle is accomplished one life at a time. I have learned that it is difficult to be the kind caring person I want to be if my own life is filled with tension. I know that I probably have not said anything that is new to you here today in this post. The purpose of this note to you is simply to  get you some quiet time for your inner thoughts to be in your minds eye as you were reading this note to you.

Does our own family know our hand like a fingerprint in time
