do you remember moments when you were a child and something occurred in your life that shook you... that took away apart of your innocence and naivety. you were left with this realization that this very scary thing that you have witnessed has been apart of the fabric of life for a very long time. murder is daily, frequent, and gruesome. i thought that i accreted that truth along time ago... but i hadn't.
my heart is still heavy, but i am convinced that God chose me to witness that atrocity. only 4 days later, i attended a conference through sojourn that surrounded itself with the Gospel and how it applies to the inner city and its problems. i attended a prayer walk with my church around shelby park, i met tons of new people that live in my neighborhood that are affected by this happening. the problems of this inner city, shelby park, and louisville are much bigger then me. i will not turn away from them, but become more humbled by them, that i am small, but God is great.
i plan on designing again this week... trying to transition back into my responsibilities.
i have a great love for you
