Interests & Hobbies

Editor's Note: [Monday, April 4, 2022] This site has been linked here from Weathered Cloud and was a site that I (Stephen) put together back in September of 2021.  I decided to link it to the main site in order for visitors to kind of get an insight into what my mindset was like a few months shortly after the "experience" with Ruthie as I covered in the “Journey of Two Lost Souls” at the above website.  This site has been dormant and blocked behind a firewall for the most part since its inception.  Note, other than adding this “Editor's Note" header to the top of this page, I have not and decided I will not be making any changes to the actual content below.  Hope you enjoy the visual imagery - especially the candle effects :)  I thought those were pretty neat when I posted them to this personal blog of sorts which - at the time due to my lack of confidence to publish it and extreme fear of what others might think of it and consequently what they might think about me if I did a bad job of expressing myself in witten word on the web for all to see.  But, you know what?  Fear is a liar!  So don’t be like me and allow fear to rule your life and suck away the best years of your life's potential.  There is victory to be had over fear!  And the victor’s name is called Courage!  So take that fear!  Thank you for visiting - Stephen

Hello Friend!  Hope you are well.

You are one of only a small handful of people in the world that has been provided access to this website as of Tuesday, 07/September/2021.

Maybe someday it will be opened to others; but, for today, that is not the case.  Not that there's anything here that couldn't be shared with the world, I'm just not that comfortable putting much of anything - at all - out there for others to see.

Anyway, please come in and take a look around and consider coming back whenever you have a spare minute here and there.  Will be uploading additional photos, videos, song links, etc., very soon.

Hope you enjoy!

 


 

 

Peanut Butter Waffles (Ryan Caraveo) - Something about this song just kinda resonates with me.  The highs & lows part and always having a hard time balancing the two out.  Last couple or three months have been particularly tough on me but starting to think I'm getting the hang of it now.  Only time will tell.

Altar @ Home - Thought it was about time I cleaned up the little altar my wife and I have at home on top of a small bookshelf in our bedroom.  It was a total mess!  Candles everywhere.  You name it.  It was pretty cluttered.  I think the new layout is kinda cool though.  I know my wife said she at least likes it a lot better than all the chaotic mess that was there before ;)

Some neat candle effects...

OK, the whole pendant immersed in the hot wax is just a type of rudimentary spiritual exercise of sorts I decided to do to help "bring to light" any areas in my life currently that I need to work on.  Actually, that's not the entire story.  But for now, let's just say not to worry, there is zero divination or witchcraft non-sense going on here.  I am a Christian first-and-foremost.  A Dynamic/Evangelical Catholic Christian.  And I've gone down plenty of wrong roads in my life.  That part of my life "is was it is".  But those challenges, those struggles, those defeats many times, but also those victories have made me who I am today.

Is that to say "I'm above all that"?  There's no temptation, no sin, no bad stuff out there that I couldn't find myself diving into head first?  Absolutely not.  Any one of us - any of us - any one of us - could find ourselves in troublesome territory at any time.  My advice?

Stay Sharp!

Stay Diligent!

Always be on Guard!  Always!

And never forget how you felt when you were defeated!

For it's in defeat that we learn one of the greatest of all life's lessons,

And possibly the most precious of spiritual gifts we could hope to receive...hope to achieve,

And that lesson is that often it's in defeat that we learn how best to be humble...truly humble.

 

Be sober and self-controlled. Be watchful. Your adversary the devil, walks around like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

- 1 Peter 5:8

 

Pray...Like your life depended on it!  Seriously.  And if you find yourself going down a road that doesn't seem familiar....Something that bothers you....Something that just doesn't "seem right", then PRAY, put it in reverse and get back up to that fork in the road where you somehow ventured off, and STOP - take a brief REST - and this time, choose the "road less traveled" to get yourself back on track.

Keeping in mind if we've gone down that unfamiliar road long enough, we might have vested some interest in that path and the choice to "back up" may not be easy...at all.  It may indeed be painful in many respects.  And you might not get anything back at all for all that you had vested - or invested - in that path.  But that's just the way it goes sometimes.  As the old adage goes, sometimes you just have to "cut your losses and move on".

My advice on that part?

Don't worry about what material things you might lose...

Worry more about what you might lose if you don't turn away from that unfamiliar road.

 

And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.

- Matthew 10:28

 

And if you find that "unfamiliar" road becoming more-and-more familiar, watch out!!!

Weird, I had just kinda stacked all these together but not in any particular order.  When you pull away the candle representative of the Holy Spirit (Left Image Below, Front/Center), it almost makes it seem as though the other candles are protecting the "Powerful Hand" (Right Image Below, Directly in the Middle).

Stay Tuned...there's more to come, but I think this is a good starter list of Hobbies & Interests to date.

Please Keep the Prayers Coming!  It's Working!

There's Always more Work Ahead.  And Never Enough Workers in the Field to Handle the Load.

So...Pray First and Foremost for More Workers...More Witnesses to Testify of His Great and Mighty Works.

Until we Meet Again...

Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be...

As It Was In the Beginning, Is Now and Forever Shall Be...

All Glory and Honor Are Yours...

Lord Jesus Christ...Lamb of God...Who Takes Away the Sins of the World...

In Your Name We Pray...

Amen!  And Amen!
