Ethel Louise Trehern 12/14/21-5/15/20

My grandma passed away Friday night at 7pm. She prayed for me & thanked God for my gift of writing in her final prayer. The following morning I was asked to write something for her service. This is what I wrote that day… IMG_0448

Ethel Louise:

Those who knew her

called her Wese

 

A woman of great character

Missions had her heart

She witnessed to an alcoholic 

& gave a minister his start

 

She was thirteen at the time

& from there her faith just grew

She taught classes at the same church

where she played piano too

 

She raised a family filled with the love

of her Father up above

She prayed to Him from here on Earth

so that others may know their worth

 

Cooking was her hobby

She made recipes everyone knew

Sweet rolls with pink icing

had people lined up before she was through

 

Invited to the National Pillsbury Cook-off

in Washington D.C.

Her lemon supreme cake was chosen

& a brand new kitchen she received

 

Sharp as a tack ’til her last breath

She was able bodied & giving

She loved doing things for others

That made her life worth living

 

Her family was her pride & joy

Her heavenly Father the Head of House

She resides in His kingdom now

making up the years lost with her spouse

 

A commendable woman

for ninety-eight & a half years

Memories will be joyous

though at this time we shed tears

 

She leaves behind a legacy

Some massive shoes to fill

I hope when she looks down

That pride is what she feels

WAKE UP! You have been BRAINWASHED!

To quote my Instagram post today…

“So here’s the deal. We all know the media is corrupt. It’s a web of lies distorting the truth. These days it’s nearly impossible to dig up the truth. Everything we are told is controlled. Manipulated. By some of the people we have come to know & trust the most! Technology can be utilized as a powerful tool in psychological warfare. & as technology advances, that power only increases. I’m by no means saying you can’t trust anyone or that all technology is bad. But I urge you, to think. Use independent thought. Question things that don’t seem right. The truth often makes more sense than the lies that just don’t add up. People joke about not believing everything you read on the internet. But honestly, that’s no joke! Learn about those celebrities, politicians, even religious leaders that you look up too. They may not be who you think they are.”

I’m not going to tell you what to believe or not to believe. That’s exactly the opposite of the point I am trying to make here. I don’t want to force my opinions on you. But there are entities & organizations out there who do! Everything fed to you though all forms of media is filtered. You only see what they want you to see & they make it impossible to find factual information. The more you research, outside of just your mainstream newsfeed, the more you will see that a lot of what we are told does not add up. It’s not easy to find answers, they are covered well. & those who try to bring the truth to light are silenced, often permanently. Those in power want you to remain oblivious. They give you the illusion of independent thought to choose your own belief system, but everything they are serving to you is only what they want you to see. We have become so conditioned to this technological mind control, so desensitized to the realities of this world. It is time to WAKE UP! Think for YOURSELF! See what is actually happening out there. There are dark forces at work, but there is still light in this world. We just have to harness the light & use it to smother the darkness. ❤

New Year Day 2020

I forgot to post here that I uploaded another YouTube video last Wednesday, New Year Day. Here is the link! ❤

I’m on Instagram!

This was the caption I shared for a photo on Instagram last night. Because I thought it was relevant & someone might need to hear it, I figured I’d post it here as well…

As I said in my video (hopefully you have watched it by now), life is a mental game, which takes tenacity to survive. Every stage of your life is going to bring you different battles. & truthfully, you won’t win them all. But, you have survived all of your worst days up until this point in your life, & each one made you stronger, prepared you for your next level. It dosen’t matter if you fail here or there, as long as you are alive you are winning the war. Idk what you’re going through, but I’m sure there is a purpose behind everything that happens. You will get through this! Better times are ahead my friend 🙃❤

1st REAL Vlog Post

Two & a half months after I ventured to post my intro vlog video on YouTube, I have FINALLY decided to post another. I swear I am going to make this a more routine thing from here on out! Like the old country song says, “Why put off ’til tomorrow what you could get done today?” I decided to post, ready or not, it was time to put something out there! There was a lot more I wanted to say than I did in this video, but that’s okay. For now, I am just trying to get comfortable in front of the camera & putting myself out there, which is WAY outside my comfort zone I can quite assure you! My editing techniques will get better as well, I promise. So stick with me, we will get through this! ❤

Trudging Towards the Light!

I HATE the way I’ve been feeling lately, but I am DETERMINED to get better. I got closure on a previous relationship last night. It was extremely painful, but I am finally going to be able to let go. Somehow, through that pain I was able to go out & run today, & tonight I started a great new motivational book called Atomic Habits by James Clear. I am working on rekindling my passion for life & the person I once was. I am a Leo & I want to be that roaring lioness once more. I am going to retrain my mind to be the person I wish to become. So stay tuned because there is more on that to come. Also, I WILL be working on the podcast I promised to start a while back. Thank you for your patience with me through my dark period. ❤

 

Morose

I haven’t been feeling myself lately, & for that I am truly sorry! I haven’t been writing at all lately, not for quite some time. I decided to do something about that tonight. This poem just goes to show that no one is happy & positive all the time. No matter how hard we may try, we all get down. We all have bad days. We all go through slumps. Sometimes what we need is solidarity. To know that we are not alone. I am hoping that maybe someone can relate to what I wrote tonight. No matter what you may be feeling, I promise you there is someone out there who feels the same way! So today I decided to write. I knew what came out of my fingertips wouldn’t be joyful. But, writing has always been my escape. It is what makes me, me. I knew that the longer I put off writing the longer I’d feel dead inside. So I did the only thing I knew to do & let me mind escape from my head onto the page. ❤ This was the result:

Once a girl full of wonder

Now mobile, breathing corpse

Go to work, then come home

Nothing happens but remorse

 

Holidays are nonexistent

Feelings just the same

Eating to postpone the grave

In this body devoid of flame

 

Her life perceived as over

No writing & no thoughts

Ceasing to create her own

How can this cycle be stopped?

 

Swept into imaginary worlds

Through books & in her dreams

Scrolling through her phone

Wasting time staring at memes

 

What happened to the soul

That sparkled like a diamond 

In the society, which is rough?

 

Her light diminished

Her world now dark

When will it be enough?

 

They say the spirit is eternal

That it goes beyond the grave

But, what happens when the spirit

Becomes the body’s slave?
