Now I'm the graceful 46 and I love every minute of it.
As a wise old owl once told me, "Just keep living."
I have been fabulously blessed to live a most exciting life but thank God I don't look like what I've been through.
"I've been through the fire and I've been through the flood, I am broken, in two pieces, y'all know the rest. 'Cause He'll never put more on me than I can bear."
What's on my mind right now is how best to remain humble through all that life is about to provide me. I'm not necessarily speaking per the financial aspect, I mean just being able to do God's will for His word and my life.
I think if He would have presented me with exploding my literary creativeness years back, in this coming manner, it would have turned out a whole 'nother way.
I've had success and I've had my pockets deep but my love for the streets and all that was included only allowed me so much peace.
Let me tell you, if you have not put the highway or the oceans between you and your front door you have never really lived at all. If you have never truly stepped out on faith, away from your comfort zone you have been arresting what God has set before you.
When you stand by what's OOWEE, you will come to understand exactly why I am who I am, and it's humbling because of I AM.
