YOU ARE ONLY AS SHARP AS THOSE YOU SHARPEN WITH. As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17
I woke up yesterday and today disheartened because I really do not want to be here anymore. But to get from here to there takes action and sacrifice. Which I am willing to make if it means a better life in the long run. Look how well leaving Florida and coming here turned out. But now it is time to leave here. After school, I stopped at the bank and then went to this church around the corner from the gym. Oh, did I tell you I have been running the hills instead of stairmastering. totally different dynamic. Anyways, back on topic, I went there the other day to donate clothes and the girl who greeted me was also a recovering alcoholic and we talked. So I got a good vibe from the place. The pastor was totally cool. I told him I was living with people who did not share my values and that I felt uncomfortable and basically spilled my guts out. Poor guy. I did make a contribution though. What you give in love will come back to you in one form or another. He told me to get out and either make the move to Denver (taste of colorado) or look for something closer to school with someone who share the same values. I cannot have an intelligent conversation with these people. They keep the conversation superficial and stupid. I felt totally insulted when she lectured me about the trash and recycling. I don’t like to be dumbed down. I wrote an op-ed in the school newspaper about this too.
Public universities have an obligation to provide a general education on the rudiments of English, history, mathematics, the sciences and a foreign language that is at the same caliber as private universities. Why? Because graduates compete with students from other major universities and those public school graduates will need the skills, education and literary capacity to compete for higher-earning jobs and long-standing careers.
I felt relieved. So I went to the store to get something to eat. Sorry vegetarians, I had chicken sausage today. I need the iron. That time of the month. I came home and told American Dad I am vacating. So now he is acting all hurt, but the thing is, they do it to themselves. You gotta be around your peeps. YOU ARE ONLY AS SHARP AS THOSE YOU SHARPEN WITH. As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. Proverbs 27:17
I have no idea what is going to happen, I just have a feeling, it will be okay. Face your fears.
Isaiah 60:1 Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.
come rain or come shine by Etta James
New American Standard Bible (NASB)
13 “Arise and thresh, daughter of Zion,
For your horn I will make iron
And your hoofs I will make bronze,
That you may pulverize many peoples,
That you may devote to the Lord their unjust gain
And their wealth to the Lord of all the earth.
