IN the Son of the Day.
Rinse in His rays;
being baptized by His shine;
be brain ”washed “ in His glory,
through the crown of the Divine.

I know this is random, but I was just thinking about how what if the sun is the only source of light in the sky and the stars in the sky are only reflecting the light that is coming from the sun and are not balls of gas?
Because I was thinking about how in the Scriptures before people followed God through understanding, the written word people followed Him through oration and phonetic speaking.
So when you think about it, the sun, or the SON of God, is the light that rules over the day as mentioned in Genesis chapter 1. The lesser light rules over the night, which is the moon. The moon only reflects the light of the sun (Son), giving the illusion of being a source of light when it is not THE source of light because the sun (Son) is. The lesser light is the Devil that operates in the shadows and darkness which is why religions of the world have used the moon as the symbol of their faith because that religion came from the devil and not God, such as Islam.
The Son of God is Jesus and He is the light of men as it is written in the scriptures. The sun in the sky is the light of men that shows us the “Way” we need to go and allows us to “See” when we walk upright IN the day. Jesus, the Son of God, came into the world so that the blind could see; because before knowing the Son we only knew darkness and the false light that comes from Satan who masquerade as an angel of light.
Jesus calls us to be the light of the world because we are a reflection of Him made in His image and likeness through faith and He is the Light (the sun) that is in us when we believe in Him. He says He came so that we would no longer remain in darkness. This only happens when the sun (Son) has “risen” and shines brightly in the day and those of us who walk according to the day “see” Him but those who still walk according to the night are asleep because they sleep through the day and operate at night.
So I was just thinking about what if the stars in the sky were really a reflection of the light from the Son (sun) and the light from the stars are seen in the world through reflection of the Hand of God (Jesus), who again who is the Light, just as we are a reflection of the light of Christ who is the Son…who is seen in the world to be a light in this dark world… so no one is with excuse for as God says everything He made is clearly seen, even His eternal Godhead so there’s no excuse to believe that there is no Creator. His hand is in everything and His Right Hand, Jesus, is the Light that shines on everything we see just like the sun does.
I wonder this about the stars being a reflection of the sun just as we are lights of the world as a reflection of Jesus because remember how the Fathers had said to Abraham to look at the stars:
“And the LORD took him outside and said, “Now look to the heavens and count the stars, if you are able.” Then He told him, “So shall your offspring be.”
Abram believed in the LORD, and it was credited to him as righteousness
– Genesis 15:5-6
God blessed Abraham to be the father over many nations; many people = many lights in the sky that were to be in the present tense (the light of the world) through Christ.
Symbolically the stars represent all of the people who will believe in God through faith, just as Abraham believed in God through faith and it is by faith that God counted Abraham as righteous and us as righteous.
The stars in the sky represented the children of Abraham. The stars are smaller lights in the sky. The Son (sun) of God is the greater light of the sky, and we are called sons (suns) of God (smaller lights like the stars in the sky) when have faith in Him and have been adopted as sons (suns) of God and are the (light) of the world through the greater Light which is Christ.
Idk Just a random thought crossed my mind when I was meditating on God. Just wanted to share it.
God will only bless America
when America will believe and obey Him through His Son Jesus
Otherwise, America won’t accept or agree to God’s blessing because they won’t agree or believe in God and will have their definition of what a blessing and Messiah should look like…they will accept another as Jesus says:
“I come in my Father’s name but you won’t accept me, but if another man comes in his name you will accept him….”
The “god” that America will be “blessed” by and accept will be the god of this world the devil…
This is the same “god” that many Americans put their trust in as seen on the dollar bill “In “god” we trust”
hence why America is taking a downturn because most of America puts their trust in the lies of the father of lies the devil and not the truth and blessing of God who is Jesus….
So on a side note, I looked up the word buffer out of curiosity and had a laugh for the night.
But anyway, back on point on why my field notes are acting as a buffer for my main ministry websites.
I made a personal rule for myself to look at this site in the same way that I would look at a social media site when posting on it, whenever I do post on social media.
So, when I am on social media (past or present) and decide to post something; just about anything comes to mind and the amount of time that goes between thinking and posting is limited even when I used to post a lot.
I mean, of course, I consider what I’m about to post before I post it, but even that consideration goes as far as how I would think when I am texting someone. I’m going to think before I post, but I don’t have to think too long because it’s a conversation piece that I would be sending; not some long synopsis, thesis statement, or academic exhortation—just informal diction…
Diction where there would be no need to do a lot of proofreading and revising, to where I can write and smash that publish button after running the draft through a quick check.
That’s the same thing that I want to do here for my field notes! The theory goes: the more that I post on this site in the same way and mindset that I would post on social media, then the more that I could end up writing to hopefully make a daily habit of writing, where even if I’m not posting daily that’s alright; the habit would be formed while having fun; and the longer essays that require more of my time that would be posted on my other websites, will be easier to write consistently because my field notes acted as a buffer for my writing habit.
So, this is one way that I look at my field notes. I don’t think this should be too hard. When I was more “social” on social media, I could easily post every day and sometimes multiple times a day. Now I have better things to do with my time. With having this same mentality here for my field notes, I may not see this as a chore, but see it as the little time that I spend online socializing and reflecting, while still curating content for Christ.
I don’t understand why I did it, but I looked up the word, buffer, and the definition for it. It’s kind of funny after reading what it means in British “culture”.
So, according to Webster’s Dictionary, a British buffer:
It is considered an elderly, unworldly, “old-fashioned” incompetent man.
Ah yes, leave it to the dictionary to showcase and expose just how backwards society of any culture is if being UNWORLDLY is old-fashioned and makes someone considered to be incompetent.🙄
Now I’m starting to get curious about what types of words I’m going to find when I open the dictionary… I remember back in junior high when the word, “bootylicious” was added to the dictionary. So, what more am I gonna find? The dictionary might not be as boring as I once thought it was, although the word buffer seems like it should go in the urban dictionary.
I guess this type of guy is not “pop”ular according to “pop culture” since he is an old pops. I also guess that means that this type of person is not accepted by society, making this type of man shunned, or even exiled according to his old-fashioned, intellectual prerogative, that’s just sooooo “last century”.
This must be a “British” way of saying a man is a square… well, the American English call guys over here “simps”… and even most of them use this term loosely and backward, showing their incompetence.
This word seems very similar to what a cultured person may call someone who has been sheltered growing up. Being sheltered isn’t actually a bad thing, though–I would know because I was sheltered growing up. I guess if an “old-fashioned” man is called a buffer, does that mean that I am called a buffet? Oh, wait, that word is already taken, but I do like to eat…soooo…
Well, if that’s the case, CHEERIO! And pass me a BRANDY, and while I’m at it, shout out to all the buffers out there if there are any reading my field notes!!! 👋👋😆🇬🇧💂
I know that it is usually those that are considered the incompetent of society, are who are actually the ones that helped build societies. The boring ones are the “buffers”, which are typically the busy ones, while everybody else is just being busybodies and a busybody can’t be still for fear of being bored or boring. So keep being buffers!!!
Because if the world hated you, it hated Jesus first. 😥
Oh, and tell those who called you buffers, that they can shine their own shoes, and we will see who is the incompetent one.
As Laday “KWE”nela I say, “We the “ghetto” Englishmen love you over heeeeryaaaa, and I don’t think that America or Ameri”can’t” doesn’t hold any record of wrongs based on the last time that you came over here with your red coats. You’ve even inspired our Marine Corps dress blues, so thank you, especially thank you for that because those made me look good in black, thank you buffers!!! Thank you. Now CHEERS 🍻 and Ta! Ta! For now!!!
My field notes are more of a casual blog. The more that you read this blog, the more you’ll be able to see the difference between what’s written here and what I choose to write on my other websites.
Since this blog will be more casual, this means that there is a higher chance of there being more entries published here faster than how they will be on my other websites.
This would be because I’m not doing as much formatting, proofreading, and revising, over here as I am with the other entries and writings that I do over yonder’ because ain’t nobody got time for that.
So that’s good news for you if you like what I write. If I’m just not writing fast enough for your appetite, then consider coming over to my field notes to see if I’ve written anything new. And then while you’re at it, don’t forget to leave a comment so we can start a chat because remember, this is casual, fancy casual.
I’m writing a lot lately, but I’m realizing that not everything that I write is appropriate to go in the same types of publications that I have. I needed a site where I could upload my notes and studies on different topics that I have researched or just experienced in my life.
Mixing published notes with the different content and entries that I’m producing on my other sites I figured would cause confusion with the readersand cause confusion for myself.
When it’s time to hit publish I think I would have a difficult time trying to understand how I would want to categorize my notes alongside my essays or blog series for my main blogs; that and the fact that the topics; although similar, would be written in a different style because these field notes are my field notes that are written to me for me.
So, since I have different blogs that are already up, I needed to make a different one specifically for my personal notes showcasing my thoughts, observations, and outlook on life. I figured that since I’m learning a lot on my walk with Christ that I could share my learnings and so that’s where this site sprung up.
I didn’t know what to call this site or know what types of entries that I would upload, but after thinking about it, I realized that my notes are a reflection of my life and my thoughts in the form of epistles. I like that word. It sounds sophisticated even though the gist of this blog seems a little less domesticated…okay Imma stop.
So even though I gave different categories to what each of my notes and epistles would be, I still think of the entries for this site as my epistles. Letters to myself.
I almost changed my mind about how I would see these set of entries of my writing because I’ve been so accustomed to associating the word epistles with scripture; but I also know that not one faction or entity owns a particular word, except for God of course, so I looked up the term epistles, and I found:
The word “epistle” refers to a formal or literary letter. It is a written communication that is typically intended for a specific recipient or audience. Epistles are often used to convey personal thoughts, experiences, advice, or teachings. They can be written in a variety of contexts, such as personal correspondence, religious or philosophical writings, or literary works. Epistles are characterized by their formal and structured style, often addressing the recipient directly and expressing the author’s ideas or emotions in a thoughtful manner.
The definition of the word fits perfectly for what this site is! It is my field notes that are my personal epistles of my life experiences and thoughts, where the main recipient is me directly expressing my ideas and emotions.
By me publishing some of these notes to you, who read them, I guess you would be walking alongside me in the “field” of life. So welcome!
Letters or epistles are not usually formally formatted like how regular essays and articles are on my other sites and that’s what I needed, because when I’m writing or talking to anyone, including myself, —because of course There isn’t anything crazy about talking to yourself; it’s crazy not to. There’s just pure communication conveying points and — well — life.
So there is no formatting or excessive focus on punctuation and grammar. I wanna see how well and how fast I can write with these field notes so that I can be consistent in writing everyday to produce more.
I need to find establish this habit since I’m also doing animations and video editing at the same time. I figure if I don’t start the habit of writing everyday now; then my writing habit might go by the wayside and I don’t want that to happen; but I’m thinking that it is likely to happen, because my main entries on my websites take a little bit longer to produce.
This is also why this website is intentionally designed to be blank, with the focus on text. I may add some of my personal sketches here and there in some entries since these are my notes, but I would rather not take away from what has been written since I want the focus to be on text. So the finished illustrations —if I add any— would just go on my portfolio website if I do upload sketches here.
When looking at many other sites the focus is heavily tailored towards images, colors, and shapes over a focus on text. But here, I like seeing each entry behind a blank wall that we call the internet page. It’s kinda of symbolic for me, because each “page” on the site is initially blank representing a day that hasn’t started yet. and all I gotta do is just fill it in. I’ve always had a weird obsession with filling in a blank page I don’t know it feels so relaxing…
But anyway, even though I have been told that I think how I write, and I write how I speak I would rather not focus heavily on formal formatting that comes with being associated with articles and essay writing, so I’m not going to do that here. At least I don’t intend to, so if you’re reading this, and you’re still intrigued by my personal notes, then be prepared for very, very, VERY long blocks of text since that’s kinda how my thoughts go; but don’t worry; occasionally I’ll add a couple of paragraph breaks because I too need to be able to reference these notes myself if ever I need to look back at them in the future.
So I guess that’s it! If you made it this far, you just might make it through the rest of my notes. 🤭
