The Great Awakening


I want to thank all of you who have graciously extended your hand of kindness toward me and my endeavors for excellence. I have realized that I might not have the skills that my grand father had and has passed on to his kids, but I have learned that whatever I put my hands to do, I do it to the best of my ability. My ability is the ability to do things in EXCELLENCE.
As mentioned before in the previous letter I have not been able to update the blog with video for the simple fact that I do not have a computer. I might just start a J.D. College Fund to acquire these items to help advance my educational skills. I do appreciate you taking the time to read these blogs as they are published irregularly. I will create a schedule and stick with it with the determination and drive that got me here and will take me further.
This week has been a mixture of good and bad. The good things are that Coca Cola has graciously awarded the school with some money. I want to be one of the recipients of the funds. Another is that I have had the opportunity to examine my skills of effective studying. Had the opportunity to meet and greet new people. Orchestrated the offering for the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel, celebrated my new church’s anniversary. Had the opportunity to catch up with family and friends on their well being. My roommate had declared his major a Biochemistry. The bad is that this week I took my first exam in Biology. I didn’t do so well. I am still trying to analyze what happened and how this predicament came about. The first assumption is that my test taking skills are hindering my success. That’s a challenge I am willing to tackle head on.
During the last time I updated my blog I sent letters to many of you who had attended my Going Away Luau. I hope that many of you received them. I encourage you to write me, send me something, to show that you remember me, and care. I couldn’t send letters to everybody and I do apologize so I called many of you to make up for the shortcoming. I encourage you to contact me and keep in touch.
This week has been phenomenal as I have watched Morehouse President Dr. Robert M. Franklin preach at West Angeles on the following Sunday. He is a dynamic theologian and speaker. I had the opportunity to hear him speak at our opening convocation for the 2009-2010 school year.
Spread the word about the blog and the wonderful advances that have been taking place in my life. This blog is designed to help those who you know are in need of support and encouragement.
Those who are in need of encouragement I want you to know that the sky is the limit and that you can do anything your heart desires. Understand that all your life people will tell you NO, but I dare you to tell them YES. Don’t succumb to the pressures of this world. Life is what you make it and what you speak it to become. Stop speaking “F’s” and begin to speak “A’s”. That was for me! Don’t you dare let anybody tell you different, you have a purpose and that no one can hinder your purpose, which is your passion unless you allow them to. Learn to tear the roof off of your life. I’m reminded of the story of the four friends who lifted the paralyzed man into the house where Jesus was teaching. They couldn’t get in the door, some things you just are not going to be able to walk straight into. They couldn’t go through the window. Stop watching other people being blessed and fall through the roof to receive yours. Speak poverty, lust, anger, depression and all those things that stop you from tapping into what God has placed in the depths of your souls from your life and days and begin to claim victory, wealth, happiness, and peace. I’m going to help somebody. Don’t just speak it. Begin to live it! I’ve got to stop but I hope you are getting the message.
I love each and every one of you and I miss you all. Atlanta is thus far amazing and it’s an experience I shall never forget. Stay encourage and take courage!

May God Richly Bless You and Keep You,
