I love the color purple. I most certainly do. Purple is a way of life. How can you live without it? It symbolizes royalty. And I am most certainly royalty. Nothing less. Not meaning I'm better than someone or wealthy or this that and the other. But I have a sense of who I am and whose I am and it is required of me to fulfill the purpose set for my life.

There is the new online dating site for single Christians called www.faithmate.com. Do you think it is wise for Christians to make a move to find their potential soul mate online? I think it is rather ridiculous. If I have an affection for someone, I would rather get to know them in person, know their true character from a I can see you basis, not a peek-a-boo I see you online basis. Could you really trust that person even though it is a Christian online dating site? You have to be careful about who you come into contact with online. I wouldn't take the chance with such romance.

I knew it! I'm so thankful that everything worked out with my financial award at UVA. I'll be there for my third year and beyond. God is so awesome! I was expecting, faithful, patient, and prayerful and He blessed me indeed. There is no one like Him to turn things around for better. I can shout and do twirls and cartwheels from here to yonder because He has been so good to me. What He did for me, He can do the same for you. Nothing is impossible if you TRUST in God. Not just a little bit, but all of you must trust in Him. Never put your trust in man because they just don't understand who, what, when, where, and how you are to BE. Simply you are to BE like God's son, Jesus, the only perfect man who went through ups and downs just like you and me but stayed on the straight and narrow path. 1 Peter 1:16 says: "Be holy, because I am holy." You just can't put your trust in any ordinary man. He doesn't know where you've been and where you are going. Only God knows. Well, I shout the victory, shout because I've been set free, SHOUT!

Can you believe it? It is finally August. It is finally here. Meaning, summer is almost over, I'm turning 20, and I'm becoming stronger through the test of patience and faithfulness. I'm going through a test right now considering some things have yet to be fixed with my financial aid at UVA. But I'm trusting and believing God is already working it out, and I refuse to fret and complain even though I feel the need to holler and scream. I just can't, I just can't. I just continue to thank the Lord for all that He's done, what He's doing right now, and what He'll do. A certain Bible verse comes to mind: "Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perserverance (James 1:2-3)." I'm so glad that I'm going through this, seems somewhat peculiar, but I have this uncomparable JOY to know that this only makes me stronger and closer to my GOD.
