What up?

What up? It is Labor Day weekend. Friday August 31st, 2007. 11:51PM. I am just chil'in right now, trying to decide what to do. A better day is coming. Pain has lasted for so long, but a better day is coming. I would not worry about tomarrow, because tomarrow is still on its way. Today is the day we need to focus our attention on. Today is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it, be glad, says the Lord, for this is the day that I have made. I t is the Lord's day, he has made it, why should we not be glad. Rejoice oh ye people, rejoice, for it is a new day, a new morning. For the Lord's mercies are new every morning and that is when joy is to begin. Weeping my endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning, and it is still morning at least for 5 more miniutes. Rejoice, for this a new day. It is a new day, why not rejoice and be glad? I have been young and I have been old, says the psalmist but I have never seen the righteous forsaken or there seed begging for bread. What is that? Is that not the favor of the Lord? Is that not the Almighty God providing for those who love him and seek him early? Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, less there come a time when you are in need and the Lord hides his face from you because you did not seek him when he was there. This is the time to seek the Lord, for he is in the field, the Lord is in the field according to Chuck Pierce. Listen for God and he will speak to you things that the world has never heard, listen and obey and you will be blessed, for Jesus himself said, "Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word from the mouth of God." Be Blessed this day, for it is the day that the Lord has made, be blessed and rejoice!!!

Armed Robbery

I witnessed an armed robbery about an hour ago. I am calm now, but I was so angry. I wish with all my heart that I had my badge and gun. I would go out and try to find those guys...

What am I to do?

It is Saturday, August 4, 2007 - 6:50pm. I have had a long day. I am trying to decide if I should go and deliver pizzas. I figure they will be real busy, but should I? Money is a funny thing. You work so hard to get it, but it is so easy to spend. There are so many things I would like to get, but haven't I worked enough today? I spent the day teaching inner city kids how to swim. Most of them had the basics down, but they never really swam in deep water. It was kind of fun because I had to push them to jump off a small diving board and grab my arm. If the missed it I would go down and make sure they came up. After awhile alot of them did not even need my help. They seemed like naturals, like they just leaned how to swim perfectly. Of course over the years we have been working with them, but we never really had alot of time in a pool with deep water.

So I am back at the mission 7pm now and I must decide what to do. Last night on Lyons Ave. they had a police check point on the other side of the road. I could have turned off before I hit it, but for some reason I just wanted to drive by it. I wasn't doing anything wrong after all. One office asked me to stop - A white guy - he asked me what I was doing, and I told him I was delivering a pizza to a street near by. I could hardly believe it, because he had a hard time believing me. In his mind, he could not comfortably believe a "white boy" would deliver pizza into the "hood". At least that was my conclusion. I had to be doing something wrong. He imediatly asked me for my paper work, which I felt was bogus, but I showed him every thing. I couldn't believe what he said, he said "This is suspisious, but I am going to give you a break." Ya, you better, officer, I did not even do anything wrong. But whatever, So I said "what did I do?" and he said, "don't worry about it", and I was like whatever, and took off. rediculus, but whatever. Probobly thought I was going to buy drugs or something. I should not be so hard on him after all, I do not know of alot of people who would do what I do. I accually find it funny. There are the drug dealers who think I am a cop and there are the cops who think I buy drugs. Of course there are the drug dealers who think I buy drugs. There was one white dude who pulled up once and tried to teach me how to buy cocaine. After that I was like something is seriously wrong with this world... Newark REPENT! That is all I can say, God loves you to much to hurt you, but he will of course do it with a broken heart, for he is a righteous God and cannot allow anything unholy before his presence. Jesus is your only hope...
