"Start spreading the news, I'm leaving today! I want to be a part of it. Newark to New York" ~Frank Sinatra (kinda)
Today's the day! My bags are (over)packed, ticket in hand, goodbyes said and done, and I'm off to Stony Point New York for my orientation into the YAV program. I am extremely excited to follow this path God has asked me to walk down. I am so thankful for all the love, and support from friends and family since I have announced that I am doing the YAV program, I am so blessed to have such a large support system behind me! Thank you to everyone who has helped to get me here.
In light of recent events, I feel I should explain a personal philosophy of mine, that love is a way of life. As we walk through this journey called life we should clothe ourselves with love and spread this to everyone we meet, because love is a transformative force and through its power we can change the world. No one in this world is that different from the other, we are all more alike than we realize, we are all flesh and blood, we desire the same things, fear the same things, and are all gods children. In this time of such hate we must come together with our fellow man and rise up stand together and love #LoveTrumpsHate
Now I gotta jet, literally, but this is just a small taste of what you can expect from this blog along my journey this year!
"Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity." ~Colossians 3:13-14
