My new FotoInfusion creation. From a photo I took at Maydenbauer Bay Park, Bellevue WA.

This photo was taken yesterday from my visit to Maydenbauer Bay Park, Bellevue, WA. It is a latest FotoInfusion. I have to add my signature before adding it to my FotoInfusion Gallery page.

By the way you can use my FotoInfusion’s as a virtual background if you have a green screen. I use them during Zoom calls as they can be uploaded into Zoom’s virtual backgrounds, if you have a greenscreen. You have to check the box in Zoom that says “I have a green screen”.

Recognize that He is near

The world is fast approaching to be unlivable for reasonable people and for we believers. I think God is speeding up this lunacy of the world due to getting to the end of this world as we know it faster, so that we don’t have to languish here and suffer until the day we are raptured up and out of here.

What faster way to get us through these terrible times than to speed up the process of what’s bad on the earth. Culture wars comes to mind as well as everything else that’s wrong with the earth.

If you feel the same way I do, you don’t want to stay here on earth too much longer.

And while we’re here with it having gotten almost unbearable, more people will realized the crazy leaders who are destroying America and other countries and who make no sense. They are destroying families and our food supply, the cost of gas is getting prohibitive and they’re forcing electric cars in the not-too-distant futures. Crime has gotten so bad with police defunding and legal consequences having gone soft on crime that it’s no longer safe walking in Seattle and other big cities with tourism, like San Francisco any longer. It’s just a drug heap, these cities have gone blue and are being destroyed by the day.

These events will push more people to the edge: they will look for answers and be more open to the hope that Christ brings to the world. They will be more open to hearing about Jesus dying on the cross for our sins, that man’s hearts are born into sin and we need a Savior to stop progressing into sin to self-destruct.

Christians, we have a job to do and we should evangelize and let others know we are people of faith, that Jesus’s love will forgive and redeem us from our trespasses, that we will be loved, guided and provided help in these terrible times. It’s only getting worse and I believe it won’t be getting better.

So you too, when you see these things happening, recognize that He is near, right at the door.
Mark 13:29

For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16

Looking for work

Here’s the details:

I’m currently in an online bible study and listening in while writing this. I can’t, however, interrupt the lesson and tell them I’m looking for a job. LOL! How inappropriate that would be!

I’m losing my job in a few weeks. It is a contract position that I knew would probably end so my last day is March 31st.

I’m seeing what’s out there online as far as doing Christian writing. I imagine a job where I can write online stories, review the news through the lens of Christianity, relating news to bible prophecy, or other forms of writing and blogging.

Maybe there would be a flavor of evangelism or something church related. There’s lots more I could do as a believer in God’s Kingdom such as videos, interfaces with websites posting my web content or interviews and editing photos to create nice pictures having biblical quotes on them. People like those – they are uplifting.

In my work I am adept at hearing people’s stories and providing counseling, but Christian content counseling to keep people hopeful and trusting the Lord Jesus Christ to provide answers for them, providing help and hope and the love of God to them, online. Or on Zoom calls or something like that.

But how do I find a job I would really like doing these things? Would I find anything in the next two weeks? Keep me in your prayers that something opens up for me and let me know what you think. Could you use help in finding a job today?

Let’s get connected and we could connect on LinkedIn if you’re there and spur each other on.

We all need support at times and I think it’s a good idea to find connections online since churches aren’t the best way to go due to true Christian churches being so hard to find these days. Do you agree? Let me know if you want to start one online, or share something in groups we could meet in online. Even a Zoom call with a group of people who are Christians looking for a job would be really nice. Anyway let me know what’s troubling you and I will pray for you today.

Trust in the Lord (video)

Here is a test video with one of my FotoInfuzion virtual backgrounds where I am experimenting with using an app to create a video. It’s about wearing masks and how it’s been here in Washington state. Also about the Ukraine and the need for prayer. If you don’t know the Lord Jesus Christ listen to the end and you will find out how you can reach out to Jesus Christ with a sincere heart and he will reach back to you. We need him in all that we do. God bless.

To the unbelievers who mock Christian prayer: prayer holds much power they won’t understand

I’m getting a lot of comments that act as if when Christians say they are praying for Ukraine, for the freedom convoy of truckers, or any of the major problems going on around our world today, people get up in arms and make dumb comments like, “what would prayer do?” or “why not do something to actually help?,” etc. As if to say, Christians only sit around praying and contemplating their navels.

Christians do a lot of things in this world, and probably at the top of their list is seeking God first in all situations. Seeking his guidance and protection, asking him to help those in troubled parts of the earth. And to say that prayer “is doing nothing to help” shows supreme ignorance by those who do not believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Just wanted to get this out there. God moves mountains and does whatever he wants. He also responds to earnest prayer’s of his children.

So next time you say we Christians pray and do nothing at all, but pray, you have to know God and his power, and we do other things that help the earth. Besides prayer.

To understand the power of prayer is all wise.

Let’s see DeSantis run in 2024 instead of Trump

I have continually been a Trump supporter and came out early for him. I voted for Trump twice.

But, let’s remember how Trump’s son in law wanted to divide Jerusalem and how Trump let Jared Kushner influence our policy on Israel.

Being a Christian, Trump should have known it would be against God’s word, to not divide the land of Israel.

For example one bible verse speaks against it:

I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. And I will enter into judgment with them there, on behalf of my people and my heritage Israel, because they have scattered them among the nations and have divided up my land,

Joel 3:2

Why is Ron DeSantis not given praise by Trump during CPAC?

I’d rather see Ron DeSantis run instead of Trump. There’s no baggage there of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner’s making decisions for U.S. policy regarding Israel.

I really think Trump has been misguided on this point that God makes explicitly clear, do not divide his land, Israel.

Trump’s not in office; here’s why (my opinion)

Today I’ve been praying about my mental health in all that is happening in the world today.

We are under attack spiritually and I’m not the only one feeling it. I’ve been in prayer about Trump and what I’ve heard online pastors saying about President Trump. One is hesitant that he is someone we can trust due to the vaccinations and COVID political sphere. He wonders if Trump has been behind the dangers that the vaccines present and how he might have benefitted off of them.

I do not think President Trump was part of the deep state – after all he was an outsider that everyone in the deep state seemed to hate. They still do. I think President Trump was only doing his job, trying to prevent COVID from harming U.S. citizens and did the best he could finding answers, and as soon as possible.

He is only trying to help America and hence, he created his America First agenda. He was not part of the deep state nor was he benefitting from the vaccines. After all, he was not part of Fauci’s secret cabal.

Trump said sometime fairly recently that he did not pay a whole lot of attention to Fauci when he was in office. He does not think highly of Fauci, nor could he know what Fauci was doing with the Wuhan lab over in China.

Trump tried exposing the corruption in our government to benefit our people, not make a buck off of the crisis of COVID. He acked quickly and decisively to protect Americans. It had to have been a hard call to make since we did not know what COVID would do to our people nor where it originated from. Trump called it “the China virus” and blamed China – he did not want to make a buck off of the man-made virus.

But, I think Trump suffered by not having his chance at a second term and they got him out of office. Do you know what I think?

I think it was due to his family, son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and his daughter Ivanka Trump (who President Trump dearly loves), wanting to divide Jerusalem in Jared’s Peace Plan. That did it, I believe God punished Trump and let the deep state have their man in office. That’s why I think Trump was not given a chance for his second term.

Safe Parking Lot

This was a parking lot I used to live in.

I had to live in my car because I had nowhere else to live.

It’s been a slow journey back from homelessness, so I understand the
barriers people face when they’re homeless and after working in the field as a mental health clinician and counselor of the homeless I feel I have a good grasp about what helps and what doesn’t help them regain their lives.

One of the biggest pieces of advice I can offer is this: You have to rely on God for your daily needs. This parking lot helped cement my relationship with Jesus in ways that couldn’t happen if I lived comfortably in a home.

 

I am grateful I had to struggle so much and I’ve learned to rely on my God and Savior, Jesus Christ.

FotoInfuzion gallery

I have launched a new page called FotoInfuzion gallery here on my blog that I hope you will check out.

I have found a fun outlet to turn my attention to: photography, but transforming them into photos I have begun a page with dynamic photos, “FotoInfuzion gallery.”

These will be photos that I take but they will be turned into visuals found no where else but here.

The llama seen in the photo here is Lexi the llama, who is responsible for trekking into the unknown, the “untraveled” reaches of photography’s spectrums. You will not find this anywhere else.

We will bring you amazing photos!

Being creative was one thing my father influenced me with, he had an ad agency in San Francisco.

As a child one of my favorite things to do was draw. Reading and writing creative stories were a few other things I occupied my free time with.

In college I was drawn to the writing courses; English Lit and Journalism.

I can’t say I enjoyed English Lit especially with the heavy emphasis on poetry, but Journalism was especially interesting which led me to become a member of the Journalism Club in two colleges I attended: Napa Valley College and California State University, Sacramento (Sac State).

Not wanting to report city council meetings where a journalism professor instructed we would probably start out doing if we were to work in the field and being a shy person, I did not try to work in the field. My internship for my degree in Journalism took me to Vallejo, California, where I wrote news for a radio station’s newscaster. I don’t remember the name of the radio station.

I did somehow get involved in Napa Public Access TV and actually won an award for reporting on a Napa mayoral race.

I have published many websites, blogs and did internet radio way back in time, but believe me, there was nothing I did in the public realm that would identify me as becoming a journalist but I did try and start a media company here in Bellevue, Washington, which I have since let go of. It was called The Bellevue Zone (TBZ) and I enjoyed the writing that I and a few people did, but the hours it was taking me to keep going every day became like a nightmare.

As the hours droned on with my slaving away at trying to turn out a quality product online I wondered how long it might take to make it a self-funded company where others could get hired and actually start turning a profit. But it was slow-going and I had to resign. Too much work and no play turns a person into a sleep-deprived and stress filled mummy or something, a caffeine addict.

They need a recovery group for caffeine-addicts.

After five months of grueling work trying to make The Bellevue Zone a successful operation while having to work full-time hours for another company, I decided stress was getting the best of me and affecting my health so I’ve chosen to let that go.

I am currently enjoying “FotoInfuzion” where, with Lexi the llama as tour guide, we will bring you updates from our treks to places unknown, untraveled, and never seen before! From somewhere deep inside Washington’s Eastside, we bid you well. We hope to see you here again soon.

Please give us a like once in awhile, we would appreciate it. Maybe you’d share a page or two! God bless.
