•Jeep into Germany•
•Time (5, October 1944)•
~US Army Jeep crossing the border line from Belgium into Germany during WW2. The sign on the right, clearly written in English states, “You are entering Germany, an enemy country. Keep on the alert.” During this time, Belgium itself was in the very beginning of its liberation stage. Allies had just step foot on Belgian soil in September of 1944 to begin liberation.

This painting made by Vincenzo Camuccini in 1800 depicts the legendary assassination of Roman dictator Julius Caesar in 44 BC by a large group of conspiring Roman senators that included Marcus Junius Brutus, Gaius Cassius Longinus, Decimus Junius Brutus Albinus and also Servilius Casca. Image represented is in the former Theatre of Pompey, Rome, in the Roman Republic. March 15th 44 BC. Julius Caesar was stabbed more than twenty times by the conspiring senators due to worry that, as Caesar had recently been named dictator, he would eliminate the Roman Senate and rule through tyranny. By killing him the senators hoped to restore the Roman Republic and end the beginning of his dictatorship. They saw him as a man who became far too powerful for his own good, and that coupled with his popularity amongst the citizens of Rome made him in their eyes very dangerous to the future of the Roman Republic and its people. Unfortunately the assassination only caused a civil war that drained Rome's resources, and the Roman Republic was left weakened until Octavian won and took power over the nation, proclaiming himself as Augustus. Ironically the assassination of Julius Caesar didn't restore the Roman Republic by any means, as when Augustus took over it directly led to the creation of the Roman Empire. It didn't end well for many of the assassins either as Julius Caesar was incredibly popular amongst many Romans, who saw him as almost godlike due to things such as being a very reformative ruler, his legendary victories in Gaul and the addition of all of France into the Roman Republic. After his assassination the fury of the public was so massive that some of the assassins were hunted down and killed. Others were either killed in battle during the civil war, executed or committed suicide.
No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, And their vindication is from Me," declares the LORD. -Isaiah 54:17
How is this true when God fearing believers die every day? They die at the hands of others, they die from disease, they die when they had so much more life, love, and joy to give. How can we say that no weapon formed against us shall prosper when believers die every day? •
God does not lie!! Those weapons did not prosper. They did not succeed because GOD HAS WON THE WAR!! Those believers may not be here with us but they are alive in Heaven!
I remember when my aunt Elaine passed away. She SHOWED me the true meaning of faith as she battled breast cancer multiple times. I couldn’t figure out how God could allow cancer to win when I knew the faith Elaine had was way larger than a mustard seed. That’s just it though, the cancer didn’t win in the end. God did!! He got to bring home one of His most precious daughters. I can’t imagine the joy they both felt when she ran through those gates and into His arms!! •
No weapon formed against us shall prosper because death is not the end!!! It’s just a new beginning. We as followers of Christ should not be fearful because we have something much greater waiting for us after this life. •
With that being said, no I’m not ready to go to Heaven yet and I’m not ready to part with my loved ones. There’s still plenty more to live for here!!! Instead I say all of this to say we should not fear the weapons that are formed against us because death is not the end for us as believers. Those weapons do not prosper, instead we do!
My favourite movie is RRRrrrr!!! by Alain Chabat. Every time I watch it -- I laugh. My husband watched it once and thought the movie is nonsense. Objectively speaking, I also like English humor, so maybe the movie is indeed not funny... The point of my post is that the movie captures the first murder ever (million years b.c.). Difficult to believe? Maybe...What about the last murder ever? It is not in the movie, only in my imagination (for now). The last murder would mean the end of wars. The resources would still be limited, the competition would still take place, but human lives would not be at stake. How easy is that to raise a generation that can live without wars? Most people think it is almost impossible. If most people think so, then I guess it is impossible.

In this world 🌎 all life is born equal, yet we are not created equal. There are many schools of philosophy dating back to the first few hundred years of documented life that I have given an ear👂too. One of the 2 paradoxes on life from 2 different philosophy is that we are here to simply make "self" happy and that nothing else matters. 🙈🙉🙊The other being the recently popular #fundamentalism which is more about serving...if I ask myself what is good and what is bad, can I actually answer that without answering it from a programmed state of mind? I cannot...this is where my philosophy is ruled by my energy, the thing that animates my brain 🧠 and that is as basic as allowing myself to be a watcher/observer of all life, and apply the emotionally inspired feelings that follow suit.
You see, even as 👁spill my mind, it is only to validate to self that what I feel is about life is from a genuine emotional response and not from programming, today my life was easy and fulfilling, I ate well, drank well and yet I create my own wars within on why it's not good enough and how it could improve...this is not a bad thing, this is an #egoic response which is a side effect of being a living #conscious being.
When I see others starve, hurt from thirst, ache from a physically & mentally enduring life, it not only allows me to empathetically parallel my mind with that state of being, it allows me to feel what it must feel like to know the spectrum of being human👽
Today I am thankful,grateful as well as unthankful and ungrateful ☯️ People will kill, uplift, deny, accept etc etc for you to believe in their beliefs, as no human narrative is complete without #affirmation ⁉️it is after all, the most basic and oldest form of human connection, & without #connection how are we to choose sides/tribes/teams/beliefs etc etc without these there can be no #war of ideas/race/gender etc etc #etc ⏳
