If we want something, it is up to us to obtain it. We can’t allow what others say or feel hold us back. Whether it be a new job, lifestyle change, new relationship, repairing a relationship, or setting new goals; we must let the fire burn within us.
If we remain focused; eventually the fire-stoppers will work their own way out of our life. Soon-after, we will find ourselves around other like-minded people who are both passionate and enthusiastic. They will be people we somewhat expected, coupled with those we were not even aware of. But nonetheless, they will be people who fuel our fire.
It is time to let the fire-stoppers go friends. It’s time to live the life we want to live, and live it for ourselves. If they can’t help us feed the fire, then we shouldn’t let them get too close to the flame.

As I left a local eatery after having had lunch with my sister, I pondered our many conversations throughout the rest of the day. Her and I typically have deep and thought-provoking conversations, and this was another one to add to the mix. The conversation that stood out the most was our discussion of personal strengths and weaknesses.
Our greatest strengths in life can also be our greatest weaknesses. Without balance of both, we will find ourselves living in chaos.
As night fell I thought it would be great to try to capture some pictures of lightning crashing on the fairway. I gathered up some things and went outside in hopes for storm pictures. Unfortunately the storm never came to where I was, but something more amazing appeared to the camera and to me as I began to photograph the moon. It was something that couldn’t be seen with the naked eye.
The first picture appeared normal and beautiful,
with only clouds and the moon.
The photographs became more amazing as I continued to shoot.
The moon is still in the clouds,
however there is a giant Orb floating above it.
As you can see, it is pretty good size.
In this photo the clouds covered the moon to make a heart.
This photo is unexplainable. I was not moving,
so it’s not an issue of movement or blurring.
The houses are clear and stationary in both corners of the picture.
In this photo the moon grew longer. Again, houses are stationary. It reminded me of the serpent’s tail and provoked deep thoughts from within me.
If our greatest strengths are also our greatest weaknesses; Could it be possible that the same object that gives us life, light and energy is also what the bible refers to as the fires of hell?
Is it possible that people have wondered for centuries where hell is, and it has been right in front of us all along? Often times in life when we are searching the hardest for something, we find that it was right under our nose the entire time. And if heaven is all around us as generations in the past have said, then wouldn’t it make sense for hell to be right in front of us?
