amen 2 the great i am
4 the last week i been able 2 talk 2 1 or 2 family member each day. this brought joy n life 2 my heart; heartwarming!
lord knows ive been prayin 4 this privilege 4 years especially as i witnessed more than my fair share of people cussin out their girlfriend, mom, sis, wife, grams, etc every time they got on the phone. talk bout heartbreaking

ne who glad i was able 2 expound on the word of god 2 my mom n bring eternal understanding, as well as hear hers. amen

at church i was blessed with the opportunity 2 testify 2 gods goodness n how the word reminds us that "the borrower is servant 2 the lender"; that bein the case god dont want us 2 b borrowers cause that leads 2 us becomin servants/slaves 2 those we in debt 2. in prison that takes on a whole new meanin... nuff said so we need 2 rely on god 2 meet all our needs even if that means bein content with what we have. many have went in debt 2 keep up with the joneses.

speakin of which though we can have an even bigger tablet i can do without. feel me. rather spend the 145 on somethn else as well as the $2 per song n the $3.95 2 rent a movie 4 "one n one half times"

that is all i got

meanwhile i thank joy 4 her prayers

i am we

oops typo

waitin 2 see parole in july. maybe release will happen just in time 4 me b-day, but only the lord truly knows.

been tryin 2 keep the family 2gether, but seems we all have 1 issue or another. at the end of the day i can only "fix" me. n every person that's broken has 2 answer the question jesus asked the cripple man at the pool DO U WANT 2 GET WELL?

i do. nuff said.

workin on creatin a job that i can reasonably b successful at upon my departure from this gated community. course t-shirts stay on my mind. got enuff $ in my release account 2 do it but then again probably have 2 save cause i believe they gone take every dime i have 2 pay off all the back child support. i'm ok with that cause i owe it. just have 2 find out 4 sure so i can plan accordingly. if im released broke then i just have 2 tweak my plans a lil bit

well i love u

dear daughters

my heart n soul telling me u goin thru something. know u could use ur dads presence at a time like this; trust me i want 2 b there - physically just as much as u may want me there...

something is telling me that what u goin thru may be the result of makin choices u disagreed with but made cause u felt there was no other way or seemed the most convenient 2 solve the problem/get the pain 2 stop. i get it. who wants 2 keep "bleedin"?

but life has taught me that the 1st choice is not always the best choice. it's most important in life 2 count the cost n even at times 2 go with ur "2nd mind". does that make sense? after all we humans tend 2 favor 'right now' n instant gratification n wantin what we want when we want it. but life is more than that. the consequences of living fast eventually slow us down.

if the problem is a relationship 1 ask urself - is this a relationship that's pleasing 2 GOD? y am i in it? do i want 2 leave but feel compelled 2 stay because of stability, $, sex, fear of loneliness, roof over my head, etc?

im always tryin 2 get home
