Blog! Oh how I have missed u blog. U have constantly been on my mind and have been the muse for all sorts of ideas and creativity. Although I had to pause and take a break from u in order to concentrate on some other things. No disrespect but a brotha gotta get his grind on.
Well….I’m now reentering the blogosphere and wanted to give those of you who so desired an update on me and the fam:
1. It’s been four months here in Pittsburgh and one of the mildest winters ever. I think God sent a memo to mother nature to go easy on this Cali boy. It’s been snowing but we have not been visited by any blizzards.
Right now we r keeping ourselves busy with multiple things as we sort out what is next for us. Yvette is now being trained as a Jazzercise instructor and is making progress towards her fitness goals. I am working at Trader Joes and gearing up to apply to schools for a PhD in theology, religion, or related field. I am also making progress with my fitness goals and have lost 12 lbs since late December. Kaydon and Syenna are growing fast and love to go to the library and Grandma’s house (she lets them watch tv
Right now we are definitely in need of prayer for direction but underneath all that is a greater need for healing. We realize that over the years we have accumulated so many failures and disappointments that it casts a negative shadow of doubt on any decision we make. Trusting God now is a matter of committing our will and standing on sure ground instead of a surge of excitement that leads to new and unexpected places. Some call this maturity but no matter how u slice it maturity hurts.
2. On another note I started this blog in order to take a break and get my head together. I realize how foolish that was. My head is ok. It is my heart that needs a tune up. With that being said I will be posting more frequently on my big three subjects: faith, culture, and justice. I will still post about random things I am learning and give updates on the fam but for the most part. It’s faith, culture, and justice. These r the words that encompass what I love to speak and write about and I definitely have some new perspectives in those areas. Real talk. I gotta bounce but stay tuned for a new blog look and some new posts coming your way
