oh man

quite tired on 2day
maybe cause I played basketball on an empty stomach
not a fan of these meatballs,
maybe tired cause of my attitude!
went 2 rec without being prayed up
not even quite sure if I was supposed to be there
just didn't have the drive or the joy 2 compete
then a new guy who's consistently my opponent
i can tell has his identity in the outcome of the game
he seems 2 always know the score
n has the innate ability 2 make one up
that always puts his team up
i've also noticed that everytime i shoot the ball he has something discourages 2 say
cause he remains silent when all my other teammates shoot.
maybe it's my fault.
ever seen someone n knew
"we not gone get along"?

i don't know

wonder if i'll get mail tomorrow
n from whom?
ooops it's presidents day
maybe they'll pass out the mail from saturday

maybe i'll get a letter from my daughter :)

that's all i got

might catch a lil bit of these
trumpet awards
it's off to the races

2day was super great!

started at 6:58am
i chose 2 walk in wisdom n avoid a temptation
wound up talkin 2 a brother in christ bout
my wantin 2 not b here BUT
my trusting god is still in control
n not madison or someone else
i then mentioned a bible story
n how it's a lesson in patience n what happens when we impatient
the brother then responded
"u don't know maybe god got u here (not minimum) so u can bypass all that n GO HOME"

that's just like god 2 allow u 2 through some hardship so he can get more glory
n do a bigger miracle in ur life
the proof of this can b found in john 11 n the story of lazarus

later at 240pm i went 2 what they call open chapel
had my heart set on listening to music
but god had a divine interruption planned
helped a friend find a book
which lead to god leadin me 2 a book
as i flip'd the book open it went 2 pg 311
where i spotted "20yrs"
then it was on
come 2 find out the guy david did 20yrs in prison
(remember me sayin i'm believin god im gone do 20yrs?)
n dig the what r the odds?
his release date
SEPTEMBER 12, 2008
well i got arrested on SEPTEMBER 12, 1997

god tryin 2 tell me something

i'm listening

i'll be able 2 bless u with my presence
can feel it in my spirit

so 2day i got blessed
with that new shoe feeling
though i didnt try 1 on
well till like 5 hours later tried on the right one
even so my heart holds on 2 those without shoes
or ones that r literally falling off they feet...
did mess up
see god gave me a dream 2 donate my white shoes
which i was already 2 do
but then i thought
"they don't take donations"
not wantin 2 spend $5 on sendin out the shoes i took
my nikes that r black n turned the in
jokingly saying "i want 2 donate these"
"sure throw em in da box"
my heart broke an i wanted 2 run n get my white shoes as i placed the other 1's in the box
immediately i was like "can i donate some more?"
was told i could
so now my white shoes gone get scrubbed n donated

this is our heart
