So, a lot has happened during the last 4 months since my last post. I had a lot going on back in April. I was in the middle of finishing my degree, searching for a new job, making plans to move out to Akron, Ohio, and trying to get back on track where I needed to be spiritually. My writing and blog took a seat on the back burner because I was not able to give them the attention that they deserved since they are both important to me. As of right now I will be graduating in December 2014 with a degree in Liberal Studies, I am a guitar string winder for SIT Guitar String in Akron, OH, and I will be in a one bedroom apartment by the end of October. I knew I was suppose to move out to Akron, Oh a few years ago, but I was not in a good state of mind to make a big move like that.
I moved out here, and God has provided me with a full time job, a roof over my head, and a easy commute. He has led me to a church where it feels at home and like family. Making the move out here was not an easy decision to make, but I know that this is where I am suppose to be. Before I found my current job I was a maintenance man for a H.U.D living community called Friendship Village for people with Special Needs and who are M.R.D.D.
I am still single, but I have a deeper bond with my best friend than I have had before. I will always love her, but I could not love her the way that she needs to be loved. She is like a sister to me now… so it would have been kind of weird and she agrees. She knows that I will always have her back, and that any man she decides to marry has to realize that it is a package deal…LOL!
I am currently taking my final class of my degree program. I was originally a Bible and Theology major with 12 classes left. I found out that if I switched to Liberal Studies I would only have 1 class and an assessment to take; so I took the second option and will be graduating in a few months. I do plan on getting a M. Div. soon, but I will wait a couple of years before that. I have thought about going back for a second degree to hone my writing skills, and take some formal writing classes as well.
All in all I am glad that I moved to Akron. I have a peace about it, and I am going to keep trusting that God will provide what I need as He has done in the past. He is my Rock, Provider, Counselor, and Peace. Was it hard to move out hear? You better believe it, but God has a reason for me being out here. In His time He will reveal that purpose.
I am going to try and post at least three times a week. I have a writer friend who has been giving me some pointer on both my blogging and writing as well.
