My Pain, HIS PAIN, Your Gain

17 Mar

I am really feeling down today. I mean I have been crying, nose running(more like sprinting), and with a big head like mine my nose shouldn’t worry so much it has the advantage and will still get to the finish line hours before anyone else. Ha!!

But seriously, I have cried so hard I should have turned inside out. Tell me men don’t cry. In fact it takes a man to really cry. Lift all of that weight on our shoulders, heavier and heavier, trying to get us and our families through the day safe and sound. We may not cut or cook the meat but we have to provide it. If I ever have a son and he grows my size, I will be hunting food from daylight to dark. Ha!!

I have hope that Jesus will return and take us to Heaven. But it is days like these that are like the Devil is rigging his flaws deep into me and ripping out every shred of that hope out. But I dig that much deeper. And even if I didn’t have the strength to dig and died on the battlefield, GOD’S promises are still coming. But nonetheless, I run and run(this misery has gone on for years). No matter how far I get the Devil and all his evil catch up with me and murder me like a single guy walking down a back alley trying to get home. The evil chops me up like a cow. But around every corner is Jesus. Pulling up like a police officer in a squad car, armed to the teeth. And I truly believe that when Jesus died on the cross He went down into Hell for a time. He took the Devil down with Him and when it is was time for Jesus to leave He grabbed the key from Satan’s hand and locked the door on His way out. Now the effect of tha might have not played out in time and space as we know it. But make no mistake, Jesus will return.

Veni, Vidi, Vici. I Came, I saw, I Conquered. This is the writing on many a pack of Marlboro cigarettes. It was the words of Julius Caesar sent to the Roman Senate in 49 BCE. to tell of his victory over Pharnaces II of Pontus. It was a brief report but emphasized the complete victory and reminded the senate what great military skills Caesar maintained.

Now I am here telling you now, under the stress of my own struggles(I believe it is our real duty to help others when we are at our lowest), that Jesus will return, With His army of Angels, Armed with the Almighty Word of GOD and will claim I came ‘to save you’,I Saw(Witnessed, Felt, Experienced, and took unto myself on the cross), I Conquered ‘evil(in its entirety)’!! And GOD will breathe these final words releasing us from captivity and sending us to Heavenly Peace fulfilling the nature of Jesus Christ’s blood ‘IT IS FINISHED’. Satan the evil Beast, and all of Hell will be cast into the Lake of Fire. Then we will reside in Heaven, inside the gates where the Water of Life flows freely from the Throne of GOD. No evil will ever enter. There is no need for light because The Lord is there. We will sing the praises of The Lord and fellowship with one another in Eternal Peace!! (Check out Revelations in the Holy Bible)

Every Knee Shall bow. Every tongue shall confess. That Jesus Christ(His shed blood, His victory, His Living Waters of Life and Thirst Quenching a Peace) IS LORD(Right this very moment, in the past, and for all eternity)!! (Read Romans 14:11 Philippians 2:10, and Isaiah 45:23)

If Today Was The End

16 Mar

Found this image on Google Images(Thanks to Ministries)

As a Christian I believe it is important to spread the Gospel of Jesus’ Salvation to the best of our ability everyday. Because you never know when our last day on Earth may be; What moment it is our Lord and Savior may return. I would hate anyone to be late in accepting this salvation and be left behind. But on a lite note, after seeing my blog receive hits on tomorrow’s charts (obviously due to readers on the other side of the world) I couldn’t help but ask my reader’s in the opposite hemisphere one question if today was The End: What is it like on the Other side(Heaven, Paradise)? Ha!! Obviously I am joking, seeing as when Jesus Christ returns the whole world will know and confess the Glory of GOD in unison. But that did get your mind turning didn’t it?

Long Time Maybe See

7 Dec

I have not posted on my blog ‘Burning Shorts’ for some time. This is due to the fact I have been working on some material to finally take the next step and submit professionally. I know, I know!! I am probably nowhere near at top-level in most eyes!! But here it goes!

Sadly I cannot publish in any way the poetry and other solicitations. I will gladly be posting more personal events, however absurd but true they may be.

I ask all my fans to give me a vote of confidence by finding the posting stating my recent submission on my Facebook page URL:  easybreeze83. Please comment on my past works good or bad!! Criticism can be just like pizza; Even when it is bad it is still pretty good. Ha!!

Any other comments to the Editor in charge of poetry would probably help.

Does ‘Taking Applications’ Mean ‘Now Hiring’ Or ‘Yearly File Padding: Will Not Call’

11 Feb

CapturegrgrgrI do not want to hurt anybody’s  career plans or wreck an industry. But seeing some of the job postings popping up on the internet has reminded me of something. I believe after applying many times to restaurants such as the arch or a hut of pizza (I am saying it that way to not get sued, ha, but I think you get which ones I mean) that many companies release ads for positions that do not really exist exactly this time every year. I do not know if it is for tax purposes or to pad their resume file. Either way, at least for me, applying has never landed me employment.

Having said that, one year I applied at Lowes Home Improvement in February and got called back 2 days later. I was working for them soon after. These companies hire for the Spring/Summer rush on home and garden supplies. Most jobs are temporary but can turn into permanent if you impress them. I have heard on the local news that Home Depot might hire as many as 80,000 new employees nationwide, roughly 1,200 the Dallas area.

In my opinion, I would recommend applying for Lumber or some area that still has a flow of customers after the warm seasons. The Lawn and Garden sales will drop in Winter and might leave you discharged whether you showed them you are dependable or not.

My favorite type of job is one that offers On-The-Job training. This type of work can lead to getting certified in an area of expertise that will help throughout  your career. Not to mention some few positions start out in classroom environment. I had a job working for an area minimum security prison. We sat in a classroom making $10 an hour studying material. This studying usually lasted 1 or 2 hours and we got 2 and 3 hours paid lunches while waiting for instructors to show up. But, one day a week did 7 hour workouts that made up for the easy schedule. This and the employers let you take  it easy for a few months because they expect you to work 20 hours a day and come back to work as soon as you  get home for the next 20 years. I relished the challenge but had to leave as the drive was 1 1/2 hours each way and gas was over $4 a gallon. if you stick with it 60K after 6 years and 100K after 10 years will make up for it.

Some Top stores are closing many stores!  GameStop is closing roughly 8%. Radio Shack and Sears are decreasing stores and hiring as well.
