    Happy 4th with food

    So, I couldn't sleep. so much to do and the mind can't rest. I was thinking after you get back I plan to further pursue my dream of singing. I love to sing and actually do a lot. I'm good too. I've even written some songs. But, I've always been too busy to get them out. I hope you like music. I'm kind of a mix between Alicia Keys and country. I do more soul stuff. My inspiration of music comes from everywhere. I feel like life gets away from you sometimes. I wonder what you're thinking about. Sometimes life seems like holes and you have to dig and dig to find what you're looking for. It's exhausting, but when you finally figure out what you want, you feel a sense of satisfaction. I love singing, just wish I had more time to focus on it. It's like that song, "You belong to the city, you belong to the night, living in a river of darkness, beneath the neon lights." Then, it's like you're ready to take on anything. I found something I want you to say and believe. First of all you are strong. No matter what happens you have a place in Heaven always. No one can take that from you. God is always there. I want to quote this to you from the Bible: In, O Lord, I have taken refuge, le me never be put to shame; deliver me in your righteousness. Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue, a strong fortress to save me. Since you are my rock and my fortress, for the sake of your name lead and guide me. Free me from the trap that is set for me, for you are my refuge. Into your hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O Lord, the God of Truth." These are the words of the Lord. I want you to remember: you have a heart and mind. They might have the power, but you have power of spirit. You are smart and kind and thoughtful and a person. Don't let anyone take that away. They will never take your soul, no matter how hard they try. It was never theirs to begin with. You remember that. They are few, you are many. sleep now. time for rest. another long day to come. Don't party too hard tomorrow. ;)
