It’s been almost a month since my last post. I must say that the death of Heavy D has been a bit difficult for me. I think back to when Hev first came out as an artist I was ending my high school years. His music has been with me through college, having children, and growing through life. Not to mention his reported illness mirrors when my brother was sick awhile back and scared the daylights out of everyone.
I’ve talked to my brother several times over the past few weeks and I hear the concern in his voice when he says about Hev having pneumonia, “I had the same thing.” My response, in my mind, was, “Yeah, I know.” Life is precious and you truly never know when your time is coming. Hopefully you are doing your very best to follow your dreams and seek God’s purpose for your life. At the end of the day that’s truly the most important thing.
As the year winds down our church is ending it’s P90X, to read the Bible in 90 days. I started in October and stopped in October. I picked up again in November and decided to finish strong. Now I’m reading two or three assignments a day because I want to be in the number of finishers on December 31. Reading through the entire Bible is absolutely amazing for me right now. God is speaking, healing and strengthening me for whatever is next in my life.
In my last post I wrote about how I had always dreamed of Hev performing one year for my birthday and to be truthful I never reached for that goal and that moment is lost. As I grow in my faith and breakout of this shell of low or no expectations I pray that I reach for incredible opportunities and not lose too many more memorable moments.
