MY UKULELE + CASE

Inexpensive Ukulele and case. Kohala KO-S Kine'O Soprano Ukulele Satin Natural. Got this Ukulele a few days ago. I've had the case for awhile now. I have always wanted my very own ukulele for years and finally can have one. I'm so grateful that I got both of these items for less than $6 total. I know! Amazing right? Just when I wasn't looking for them, they find me. I'm glad I listened to that small still voice that told me to just be patient and wait. That day finally came and I believe it was meant to be. There will be more pictures along with details that will list the actual price and where I got them down below.




The original price of the this case is priced at $30 but guess what? I got it for $0. I found it during my first dumpster dive experience and I'm so glad I didn't have to pay anything for it. Lol. I don't know why anyone would want to throw this out but thanks to whoever that did it, this case found a new owner now; me. Totally worth the trip and something I wasn't expecting to find.

I shopped at my local goodwill outlet and found this Ukulele on the special sales rack. It was marked at such a great price! Before I bought it, I had no knowledge of what type of Ukulele I should get and I wasn't sure if this was an actual Ukulele or a toy version. All I know is that I really wanted one for such a long time now and I didn't want to pass it up regardless if it was real or not. Plus at that time, my phone had no wifi connection so I couldn't look it up and ended up taking the risk and bought it anyways. I'm glad I did, here's why; later on that day, I searched it up and discovered that it wasn't a toy version and a new one goes for $49.99 at Guitar Center. Best part? I got it for $5.99!!! Such an amazing price! Definitely saved a lot of money. I also discovered and learned that Ukulele has difference sizes and the one I got is the Soprano. It's so cute and small but I love it! Definitely will be passing it down to my kids in the future.



I took off the price. This Ukulele works, all strings are still in excellent condition as well as the tuning knobs. Probably needs some repainting because of minor chipping on the edges of the Ukulele but it does not alter the sound or performance; major plus!

I've been practicing my new and used Ukulele ever since I've had it and wow, it wasn't too difficult to learn how to play. I also own a guitar and have been a long time player and also own two other instruments but I have to say that comparing the Ukulele from a guitar, Ukulele is the easiest to learn. I love that it's portable and doesn't take up too much space too.

Thanks for reading!

MOMENTS OF MY EPIPHANIES, MY PURPOSE, MY HOME

My random thoughts at the moment. Not sure how I should format and convey my thoughts in a way that is easy to follow or understand but hopefully you all get the point. These are just some of my observations, experiences and opinions on what I understand.

I'm grateful to see that more and more people are starting to wake up to the truth. It's good to know that sometimes, I don't need to tell people the truth but trust that the truth will reveal itself in the end. However, sometimes it is necessary to tell people the truth. When I love someone, I tell them the truth. Also when I love someone, I also let them learn the hard way so that they can know the truth for themselves. There is a time and place for everything. We're all on our own journeys. Never underestimate the power of planting a seed in someone's life.


"This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth." - 1 Timothy 2:3-4

I guess this explains why I can see certain things that some people cannot see. It's a blessing but it can also be a curse. I believe that we're all gifted and all gifts operates differently which is to serve one purpose only, all for His Glory. I will save this topic for another day.

"But the one who unknowingly does things worthy of punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and from him who has been entrusted with much, even more will be demanded." - Luke 12:48

I have always been an observer my entire life, I can easily see dishonesty and hidden motives before I could confirm them all with facts and evidence in order to get a strong argument. Without the gift of discernment, a person cannot distinguished the truth from a lie because evidence can also be fabricated too. Most people already has this gift while some aren't even aware that they do. Being able to pick up hidden emotions that some people aren't even aware of and not always knowing what it means until later. To gain insight without an explanation of why I know and getting confirmations after confirmations that what I know is right and should not be ignored, I thought I was crazy because most do not believe me when I tell them but now I know I am not. All the stuff I went through, I believe it happened for a reason. I am here for a reason. I'm not saying that I know everything. I'm only telling you all about the times I know, I'm referring to my "epiphanies" and I'm sure we all experienced this before. It's like I am Buck, that MOMENT I get when I see the truth but then wondering why I'm the only one seeing it. It's a strange feeling and it almost feels as though I had just woken up from a deep sleep. Via the Matrix. I experience this quite a lot and I don't think it will ever stop but the more I realize, the more dumbfounded I get and this truly humbles me that is why I say that I don't know everything. Such a lonely road to walk on but totally can relate. I don't think I am the only one, there are a few that I met in real life who are just like me but I hope more and more people who aren't, will be awake. I was blind but now I see. Nothing of what I have done but what He has done. I wouldn't be who I am without Him though. When the time is right, one day I will share a personal story of how this came to be.


Throwback fiction movie. The purpose of sharing this movie clip is to depict an example of an epiphany whenever I see the truth while some are brainwashed from it. (Full details of the movie, see here. Starts at 1:24:18) .


"Teach me to do Your will, For You are my God; Let Your good Spirit lead me on level ground. For the sake of Your name, O LORD, revive me. In Your righteousness bring my soul out of trouble." - Psalm 143:10-11

Looking at the cause of all of life's problems happened for a reason. Same thing I see that goes on in today's world's problems too. I am limited to what I can and cannot control. Regardless of what problems I face, it's so important that I trust Him because when I do, it helps me to let go of what I can't control, I worry less, I can think straight, have hope for the future and sleep better at night. Doubts can also be a blessing in disguise because without it, how will I realize how important Faith is? I also learned how important it is to pray from a pure heart and ask knowing that at the end, only God's Will prevails, not mines. Everything has already been established which is why I don't believe in the kind of law of attraction that the "world believes" or promotes in anymore. (Another topic for another day). That is why when it is said that when we die, nothing goes with us except our faith and our character. I had to remind myself to always look beyond what is being said because most of the time, everything else is just a distraction. Time and time again, He has shown me that His words are the truth. He is the same God from the past, presence and future; He is consistent. In the end, He fights for those who loves Him because of their pure heart. Spoiler alert; He winsHe gets the Glory


The lyrics speaks what my heart cannot say. My home. One day. 

This world is truly not my home
. What is given today can be lost tomorrow so while I am here in this moment, I am grateful for what God has given me.

"Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." - 1 Thessalonians 5:18

"But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." - Isaiah 40:31

Every day is a struggle to keep doing what is right. I already know what I should do. I may be strong today but tomorrow might be different. Who knows. Once in awhile, it's nice to go back and reread my posts just to get some words of encouragement again. Hopefully this helps you all in some type of way too. The past of my transgression is my lesson. Woe to me if I repeat it.
