Hey Everybody!!! Blessings to All!!!
Man going back to college this time around really is keeping me way busy. I’m glad that it has it got me to thinking about a whole lot of things. I was looking at a Wi-Fi signal with a lock on it and boy did that get my creative juices flowing. I am a people person and I do enjoy people of all nationalities. As a Christian I do love all of my brothers and sisters. I’ve always have been inquisitive something about getting to know a person sparks my curiosity. Now that I am in this Cross-Cultural class it’s really has gotten me in more interested in people. As I have said before I feel that everyone has something to offer that’s worth knowing. The key is what’s worth knowing and what’s not. Indeed God sends everyone into our lives for a reason if only for a season. It’s important when to hold on, let go or not let a person in from the start. Some people may cross our paths as a demonstration of what you don’t want or need.
I have become a lot more cautious of whom I connect to. I have learned to put a lock on my connection. Have you ever noticed some of the places that offer free Wi-Fi but sometimes the connection is crappy? Well our spirits are like Wi-Fi they can’t stay connected all the time especially with people who drains you. Even phone companies after a certain amount of data usage it gets reduced. I want to connect to as many people as I can. I want to brighten days and put smiles on people’s faces. After all the best things in life are free. Still I don’t want the wrong kinds of people connecting with me to download what they can from me it’s can drain my spirit. I want my data usage to stay up and so I have decided to place a lock on who I connect to. God maybe sending someone my way to inspire it’s okay to have a cut off point if we give too much away we won’t have anything left for ourselves.
As I have shared I have started back to college and I cannot believe that I am done with my first course already. The start was rocky but with God’s help I kept pushing. I have come up with ways to stay focused. I’m super excited. I received an A. This is a giant step of a life changing journey. I know that I could not have done it by myself. When I think of all the many times that God has brought me through I simply cannot thank Him enough. If I had a million tongues and hands it still wouldn’t be enough to thank Him or Praise Him. I’m thankful that He can look into my heart. I just want to Thank You Jesus!
1 Thessalonians 5:18 – In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Three police officers were murdered this is just so heartbreaking. Being a police officer is a tough job. They risk their lives for people some don’t care.Prayers are going up for the officers and their families. The violence must stop. Father God please step in and bring more peace into this world.
I wrote a report on bias for class. The media has an huge influence on society. So quick to put out stories and people make quick decisions with part of a story. How many police officers are there thousands most are doing their jobs and that’s something that everyone needs to think about.
LivesLines matter. Where there are clear, solid lines without breaks or dashes to pass through there is division. Where there is division there is an “other.” Where there is an “other” there is almost always disparity, misunderstanding and distrust.
Fifteen years ago I naively walked smack dab into a powder keg of racial tension when I moved to a new area of the state for work. My new employer, it seems, was located on the “black side” of a river that ran between two divided cities. African Americans made up more than 70% of the shop; while the management was predominately white and lived on the other side. The lines were pretty clear.
This disparity was noticeable and a bit disturbing, but everyone seemed to get along inside the walls of our establishment. I attribute this to two individuals, the tough no-nonsense African American H.R. Manager “Bert” and…
