While you and I can’t sit down for a cup of coffee and solve all the world’s problems right now, I can sit down at my computer and share some of what I have learned so that the world, your world specifically, will be a slightly better place because of the time spent here.
I am old by some standards and young by others.
I’ve lived long enough as an adult to see that over and over again I have changed. Life experiences have a way of potentially opening your eyes and helping you see more clearly than you did when you were truly young if you let them. Yet, I know I may live much longer and learn a lot more.
So as I share on this blog, I am very away that my future self may not agree with my current self. I am also aware that I may be misunderstood at times. And, my grammar may not be perfect. And, typos may exist.
Nevertheless, I will take the risk and speak now. Because right now, I see a lot of pain in the world. A lot of brokenness. Especially regarding continued racial issues in America. I want to do my part to help.
To understand how racial issues started to become such a burden to me, I recommend you read my post: What the White Lady and the Black Lady Said Over Coffee.
If you have a burden to better understand the African American narrative and perspective in the United States, I recommend my post that lists many resources to get you started on such a journey.
This blog will be about more than racial matters, but that is the topic that is most heavy on my heart and keeps surfacing most frequently as I write.
Who am I? Hopefully you’ll figure that out as you read. However, I’ll go ahead and let you know I strive to glorify God in all that I do (often failing, but letting you know the goal), and I am a Bible-believing Christian.
Thank you so much for reading! I pray you will be encouraged.
