I find that if I stay up super late, I seem to find some inspiration, just waiting in the dark silence of my small studio apartment... I think I found some.
There are series of events that take place in a life time that seem to have some correlation or attachment to one another. Either in the way they happen or, the outcome of the events that occur seem to relate somehow. I am reminded of when I got my first tattoo and where I was at the time. I was visiting my childhood friend in Texas over the course of a week, but through series of that event, I was only there for five days, and was sent home. I have to wonder why things happen the way they do. Why did I decide to get a tattoo of the word freedom , when she was holding me tightly to comfort me as a friend would, but then to find out days after that things between us would go so wrong? Freedom was put on my foot as a reminder of my relationship with Father and how I have been set free from the obligations of religion and man. I got my tattoo on election day, and two days after I turned 25. Though, it was not even planned to get it done on election day, it just happened that way. I think I actually decided out of the blue to get a tattoo on that day and wasn't even thinking about getting one. People haven't really asked me why the word freedom, but a few. I tend to think they speculate its about living in America or
something. Well that freedom is amazing and I am privileged to be an American, however, the word touches me deeper than I ever imagined, and is affecting me on a spiritual level more and more. Father has used freedom in my life to close doors to relationships and open other doors that lead to where He wants me to be. At the time I was tattooing freedom to my foot, I had no idea that I would be where I am today. Freedom to me, is something I am learning in all areas of life. Its a process in which takes me places where I never been or would have imagined going. Even before the tattoo, Father was using freedom to guide me in His direction and out of the direction that others had for me. Strange, but that seemed to happen between my friend and I. Though this story is yet to end, I find that through the course of my life, freedom will play a huge role according to Abbas grace that He continually is giving.
