Subject: My 3rd Birthday!!!

I can only praise God!
He my lawyer in the courtroom
N one who represented me at all my Parole Hearing

So I thank God that its over!

I officially got Paroled!!

I thank God 4 my early release...
Lord knowns they could a held me all the was until September 12,2072!!!
So despite the joke bout jailhouse Christian
I know God is real
This is just another personal experience 2 remind me
...

Now its on me
2 keep my vows!
Knowing 2 that slip up on my part don't men God ain't real
Just mean I 2 grow up in that particular area of my life
Right now the biggest thing is
Surrendering my love life!
(Yeah that's part of giving ur life 2 God!?!)
God has some woman in mind He want 2 walk down the aisle
But
I also have MY own idea of who I want 2 be the one!?!
Like now,as far stretched as it may b I'm crushing on a certain celebrity!
She Single N Looking!!!
N she my age!!!
What R the odds?
B lying if I told u I wasn't gone least attempt 2 throw my hat in the race!!!
Just saying!

I digress..

Back on track
Hold in my heart the thing Parole Chairman, who gives the final approval...
"Mr Murphy,...it is this Chair's sincere hope and expectation for you that, as you return to the
community for the first time since you were a teenager, you live the remainder of your life in
honor of those whose lives you have impacted."

"...You have demonstrated efforts for rehabilitation and earned your return to the community."
