dream beyond sleep.
this year has been crazy. Change is constant and god is always there. At the start of this year i was like man i hope this year is good and man when i say god works…HE WORKS. This holiday season started off good. i was kinda being optimistic on the way i would feel come thanksgiving but idk how it all just came over me to be happy and feel amazing. I met a dude by the name of Victor this past thanksgiving and he was a missionary from CCBC (A Bible College in Mexico) and i was blessed to share the holiday with him and my friend Isaac. So what started off as a regular holiday seemed good i got dressed in some nice clothes, put some money in my pocket for Black Friday, and got on the internet for a little bit before i left. Now my friend Isaac had told me he brought a friend from his Bible college. of course I met him and saw him as i saw any other friend i would meet for the first time. So time went on the 3 of us all played games with the family like volleyball and soccer. It was fun too….i haven’t done that in forever. So it comes to dinner time and i was excited, amazing food, amazing energy, and just life in itself was perfect for that very moment. Then we all said grace and began smiling at each other….then let the FEAST commence! haha it was good. The turkey was BOMB. The Mac N Cheese was so fire. So I sat next to Victor and began talking to him and of course i was interested in what he had to say because he was a foreigner and i was american. Then i came to realize…wait in mexico they don’t have thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!!! i told him that and it seemed so normal to him. I was in shock. Victor then began talking to me about his life and it hit me. This guy, this new friend, this reminder to me was put next to me to remind myself that everywhere in the world someone hasn’t done something we do almost regularly. I mean sure in mexico they have holidays but in the U.S. we are blessed with a day off or a BBQ almost every month and we just treat it like a regular day. Victor was a good friend and good spirited man. He was sent, i don’t believe in coincidences but i believe in fate. The path we see everyday might be filled with shadows sometimes but every now and then a light breaks through. Its up to us to either let that mind be passive or aggressive enough to lead you into a new found appreciation for things or a new way to live. Im thankful for a lot. Victor’s humbleness and grace was a reminder i needed. Remember someone out there probably has less and to them that less is enough to get by because sometimes having more can be the thing to knock down our own grace. Stay blessed this season everyone and spread love!
