So I wasn't planning on blogging because I didn't feel like exposing my thoughts and feelings to the world really. But while my friend Cadengo and I were talking, he mentioned that to not share thoughts and feelings was on par with not sharing love. And since I am called to share love, I will. But don't expect any craziness from this blog (for anybody who's even reading this). I am neither a particularly eloquent person nor an exceptionally intelligent guy. If you've come here for some kind of revelation or have some high expectations, then you're sure to be disappointed. But anyways, I will share my experiences - and love - not because I'm obligated to in any way, but because I was loved first. :)
I will also try to blog using correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar. I feel like as a 21 year old, I should start writing more professionally. Long gone are these days...
- an excerpt from my xanga; dated June 24, 2005
"it was a pretty good day. got most of the grades i wanted (cept one but whatevr) then jus chilled for the whole day. packed up nd cleaned out my locker, then went to carmenita for some band crap dat i had to audition for. then went home, got ready nd got some stuff, then eric park picked me up to go to his house. we chilled for a while, then got dressed and went to the whs field to see the graduation. it was frken tite. there were good fireworks nd everything. i was so proud to see all the senior homies jus walkin down that aisle, all proud in their gowns. then after jus chilled nd ate then kicked it at harris house for a bit, then went home nd knocked out."
Wow. I am disgusted with myself.
Time to sleep.
Hillsongs - The Desert Song
This is my prayer in the desert
And all that's within me feels dry
This is my prayer in the hunger in me
My God is a God who provides
And this is my prayer in the fire
In weakness or trial or pain
There is a faith proved
Of more worth than gold
So refine me Lord through the flames
And I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon formed against me shall remain
I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here
And this is my prayer in the battle
And triumph is still on it's way
I am a conqueror and co-heir with Christ
So firm on His promise I'll stand
All of my life
In every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship
This is my prayer in the harvest
When favor and providence flow
I know I'm filled to be emptied again
The seed I've received I will sow
God is good.
