Did you really think I wasn't going to post anything new today? I took the weekend off but I couldn't start the week without
updating this site.

My writing assignment for Clik magazine and a few other projects have required my immediate time and attention, placing my blog on the backseat for a little while.

My friends and one special individual in my life seems to think I'm addicted to blogging, and you know what, I agree. I would much rather suffer from this addiction than drugs or alcohol, but I digress.

On Sunday I had the opportunity to attend The Vision Church of Atlanta and each time the service gets better and better. I will try to refrain from getting "preachy" but Rev. O.C. Allen's message really hit home for me and my friends(family) who accompanied me to church.

One point that he made that I think will always stick with me in reference to life, my relationship with God, my career(especially the one that's budding right now !) and my sexuality is this, allow me to paraphrase:

The enemy wants conflict to enter into your garden(your life), he wants you to deny who God has designed you to be in order to bring chaos into your life. It takes an individual who truly loves the Lord to see the reflection of God in himself, despite what some in the world may say.

I'm not sure if everyone who reads my blog is spiritual or answers to a higher being, but I do, and I was moved to share this experience with you. It's up to you whether you receive it or dismiss it, but it would have been irresponsible on my part to only share selective sides of my personality, and not expose a rare message of self love from within the walls of a black church.

I've chosen a great clip from one of my all time favorite films CAMP for you to view. It speaks to me on so many different levels. I pray that it will give you the courage to face whatever obstacle life may bring your way.
