I'm just sitting down here in the library thinking....
I've... come.... a.... mighty.... long...way.
Theres NO way possible anyone can tell me that I did this on my own. ONLY by the grace of God am I in Georgia and doing well.
The irony to that is that: I'm not working anywhere, and havent in 3 months. But I'm smiling. I'm bnot in school due to lack of funds. But i'm smiling.
I sit back now and think..... just 2 years ago i was homeless after a catastrop...Read Full Post »

My landlords name is David Ormsby.
He moved to the U.S. in 1996 with just two bags in his hand. He had recently lost alot...almost everything in his hometown: the island of Jamaica and was homeless for over 3 months. Sleeping on the streets.
He moved to NY originally but received a job invite at Paul Quinn A.M.E. College: coincidence that I originally went there in 2006 pursuing my bachelors? Lol!
Dave then lost a lot ...Read Full Post »

We all have them...
For me I regret few things in life because I typically think things out before I make statements or actions.
But I do regret:
Those acts and feelings can be tied to SO many places, people and times that I dare not go into too much detail. I just know that with me being a man so early in life, it hurts to think that s...Read Full Post »

I moved...Read Full Post »

Today I met man here in Atlanta at the Martin Luther King Jr. library named Mr. Tatum. He's originally from Houston, Texas and he'll be 60 yrs old next year.
Mr Tatum has a great personality and outlook on life. Very modest and he trusts God for ALL that he needs. He gave me Very sound advise and only wants the best for the next generation. He told me that he loves to see young people out and looking for opportunity rather than handouts. Very modest and serene. ...Read Full Post »

I've had just an awesome week with God. Monday we had Young Adults ministry and they showed me so much love that I was brought to tears man. To my FAMILY: thank you... I was and am deeply humbled. Keep letting God use you. I'm sure that I'll be HOME again soon so we can hang out and I'll always have you in my heart and prayers.

I had an absolutely AMAZING and BLESSED weekend. Friday we honored our Senior Saints at church with a dinner and game night that went PERFECTLY! It's amazing that two generations can have so much in common. God bless them for blessing us and schooling us in the 'simpler things in life' ~
Sunday was a bit of a moment of clarity for me. Starting with Reverend Penermon preaching at the A.M. service on Being Ambassadors for Christ: showing that it's not what we say, but wh...Read Full Post »

Well... in 2 weeks I'll be moving to Atlanta. *studio audience: "Awwwww..."* LOL~ Anyways, I just believe that Gods' got more for me there. My few years in Texas taught me alot and I'm a MUCH better man for it. I loved THEE most beautiful woman I've ever know, and she is the reason I'm so in touch with God now. Also my prayer life has NEVER been this in tact. So LOVE shout outs to my new best friend Ms. Britney. I think other than a few scattered collegiate friends and fellow athletes, t...Read Full Post »
