|In a daze
||[Jan. 22nd, 2004|12:40 am]
Well the week is almost done, and I haven't wrote alot. Been so busy. I went home for the weekend again. I had so much fun, I think I hung out with Ivan, and Tiff all weekend. On Friday, Lively Hope had a "Let's kick it" when all the youth come to a community center and just hang out, play games, have contests. At first I didn't want to go, cause it was mostly for the younger teens. But the two dudes from the singing gospel group Nu Vison came, and wanted to play pool with us. So I was like I will stay. Shoot those dudes are too cute. So then I took Tiff and Ivan home, and then on Saturday, Tiff wanted to hang all day. So I went to her house and helped perm her hair. And then we decided to go to dinner and Ivan wanted to come, so I went and got him. That was fun, I really like hanging out with them. So on Sunday night, we all went out for Kris's b-day. Me, Tyea, Ivan, Tiff, Kris, and Sabein. JR couldn't come because he stays with his grandma, since her husband died, she can't go to sleep without anyone in the house. So we stayed there and talked until the place closed. But let me tell you about Sunday at church.
Okay so the praise team did a good job, had us riled up, but no one really shouted. Okay so so service went on, and Pastor got up. He started to say something, I can't remember now. But got us exicted, then he started saying the Presence of the Lord is here, and BAM, some people just took off shouting. And everybody got happy. So then it kept errupting. Pastor couldn't even preach. People that really surprized me was Deacon Maxwell, I mean I don't think I ever talked to this man, never really seen him shout, but he was too happy. That was too awesome, and then little Shelby Guymca, she was crying so hard she didnt' know what to do. Just overwhelmed with God's prescence. So then all during service something keep on saying pray for Kristen, and I was like should I?? So then it calmed down a little so that Pastor could preach. He preached on the Victory. So then he called a altar call, and people got layed out, and Kris went up there, and I could tell she wanted Pappa Jae to pray for her, so I was watching out to make sure he did, but a nother min, I think Min. Smith came, and prayed. And I pulled her aside and was like you wanted Poppa Jae to pray for you huh?? and she was like yeah. So some time passed, and Tyea came from off the altar, and it was too strong, I grabbed their hands and started to pray, then the Lord told me to touch their stomaches and prayed, I prayed for Kris, and then for Tyea, but I couldn't let my hand go, and I just kept on praying, and then Poppa J came to our pew, and told us to keep on going, he then laid hands on me, and I fell out under the spirit. Lord have mercy. I mean the Lord was dealing with me the whole service, but was like I am going to make sure you be humble to my spirit. Oh yeah other people that were just amazing to me was Daveon and Shelice. I mean Shelice was going forth and praying for people, just ministering. Daveon praying for Dre was too awesome, and seeing them praise the Lord was too funny. Also while they had altar call, JR was up there, just shouting up a storm. I mean the Lord was having a way in his life that that very moment. So afterwards, I hear this crying, and I see JR's little cousin, just crying out to the Lord, and I couldn't believe it. And JR's uncle was just crying. JR's uncle has been coming for a while now. But hasn't joined. So towards the end, Min Lawyer has people come up, and share testomonies, and JR's cousin came up there, and was like God really blessed me today, and I want to join this church, and everybody looked back at the uncle, and he was just knocked out in the service. But he finally came up there, with his family, and they joined. JR went crazy. He started jumping so high, I mean it seemed like he could touch the celling. Then Cathryn started up. Oh yeah Min. Keys came back, he has been in Jail but he was cleared of all the charges, so he was happy all service. So they call Elder Nobles to pray the benediction, and he starts to shout, I mean shout like I never seen before. So I just go crazy, and then Marcus gets up, and starts to shout. I mean MARCUS NOBLES!! thats when everyone started up again. Oh it was AWESOME!!!!! True Vine is going to some new levels in 2004. Ohhh..I had such a good time on Sunday. Then on Monday, it was MLK day, and we all went to the Tacoma Dome for the program they put on every year. It was alright. Then we had a pizza party, then I went home and got ready to go back to school. But I decide to wait until the morning, cause I have my car!!!!!! I am soo happy, so I stay home and watch American Idol. And I came back Tuesday morning, with Maria, who I picked up. I am so happy I finally got my car up here. That in itself is such a blessing. Its so funny, cause right before chruch got out, Elder Lawyer was like the devil is mad that you go your breakthrough and blessing, and he is going to try hard to make you mad. So today, I wake up with this headache, so I decide not to go to class, and just got to work. Now my clock in on national time, so I get to work which I think is ontime, but not to the clock on the wall in our office area. So today was my one-one meeting with Raquel, which I hate, cause she gives us feedback on stuff, and some of the stuff she says, I am just like what?? and how in the world did you come to that. Like last week, she said that my tone and the way I say things in meetings can sound harsh and stuff. And I am like really, in no way to I mean to sound like that, and she was mad cause I called her out on something she didnt' do,so she brings up that I was wrong, and stuff like that. So today she was like you were late, and I was like no I wasn't my clock says 1:00, anyways, it just that sometimes she acts like she is one of us and stuff, and I feel like I can really talk to her, and it is a laid back atomsphere, but other times, its likes she is a harsh boss. So now I just know not to get laid back, like she is one of the hommies, and just be on my toes at all times. So I really felt discouraged today. But its okay, I am still HIGHLY blessed in the Lord. I wanted to write about my dream last night, but my fingers hurt. More tomarrow.
