Marriage, Sex and other things I learned in...
One really imporant thing I learned was that, just because many of the men in the old testament had multiple wives, God never sanctioned that. I used to thing that it was ok because so many of his favorites in the OT did it and that it’s only because of Paul in the NT that people learned about not doing this. I guess, to be honest, I feel like life would be so much easier if men could have...
My right foot has really been bothering me! When I went to the podiatrist a few months ago, he said that the arch on that foot had fallen and the pain was caused by the ligaments straining and strectching to hold up the arch musle. He said I needed these really expensive custom made arch support prosthetics to wear in my shoes! Since I can’t afford them, and more importantly, since I have...

The Way I Live
This quote that I came across in my morning reading is right on time. Actually, all of Ephesians 4 is really excellent! I’ve been thinking that, even though I KNOW ME, other people might get the wrong idea about the things that I say and post on brightkite.com and elsewhere. First step is to nip the photos of drinks and drinking after work in the bud. (I do have one more pic that came...

Just read these two quotes this morning. They really resonate with my attempt to go to Ethiopia to work with the orphans. I guess I am hoping that God can sort through my own mental confusion and see the nugget of good that lies there, for one thing. And connect this goodness with what could be a really good accomplishment. Good, as in good for the kingdom of God. I am also hoping that, if...

Am I Crazy?
I think I’ve used this title before… However, the question remains the same. There are so many things that I want to do, now. For example, this morning, I was thinking about going to CA to study costume design. There is a one year program there and I would be instantly plugged into the community. I know I could get more work out there… But then also this morning, I was...

Very Stressed But Not Cursing!
Yesterday, I went to see a holistic practitioner. He told me that I have “heart heat” which means that I’m really stressed. It also explains my gynecological ailments. We talked about diet and he said that a primarily raw diet is good but maybe not 100%. He said that my kidney energy is somewhat depleted and the only way to guard against more depletion is eating eggs and/or...
Taking My Time
I chose this title because I was going to write about taking my time with my raw food lifestyle. Then, I took a moment and read some back posts and realized that I’ve already spoken about that. Just to reiterate, I’m deciding to do at least 4 days of raw and make Fri/Sat/Sun cooked food days. So today’s Monday. I’ve already had saw fresh apple juice, a raw flax cracker...
God's Message to Me?
This is really weird. Coming home last night, I ended up befriending this woman who had lost her way. Although she was smart and coherent, you could see that she had had a very difficult past. I could guarantee that that included drugs and jail time. But she told me a little about her life now. She worked for the City Welfare services, had her own apartment in the projects, just got a great...
Small Group Almost Over!
Why am I so happy about this? Well, for one thing, there is a girl in it that is just so obnoxious! She hasn’t really read the bible, only the assignments and she thinks she knows it all. Plus, she infuses everything with some sort of New Age sensibility. She’s also really flirtatious and the poor men in there are completely under her spell. AND, she needs so much attention,...
Will Raw Get Me A Man?
Maybe this raw diet will be the key in helping me get a man! Two things have happened: 1 - Today, I was in Westerly store shopping and this really tall, good-looking man starts talking to me about raw food and recommending items. Turns out, he’s been 100% raw for five years. He’s been to Raw Soul and lives in White Plains (as does my mom). He even ended up offering me a bit of his...
Nothing but Faith
Just have to have faith right now that I heard the Lord properly when He told me it’s time to leave the studio. At first, my plan was to put my stuff in storage and then move in with Jee Yun in the summer. Just a few moments ago, she told me that the plans have changed. Everything is really up in the air and she doesn’t have any idea where she’s moving or when. So I’m...
A Little Sad
This is really spoiled but I feel a little sad today. My good friend just came back from her trip to Germany. The trip that she invited me to go on. She had a ball! They went to Berlin as well as Frankfurt. I so feel like I belong in Berlin because of the art scene… not to mention the cheap rent. She only paid $400 measly dollars to go roundtrip! I have this job with a wonderful...
I just knew the other shoe had to drop today. I was too happy. I kept thinking, today is too good. And sure enough, when I went to the ATM to get money from my Nordstrom’s card, I couldn’t. When I called them, they said that it was because I had made too many late payments. So there I was, left with no money. I had a check at home but it was too late for it to clear for...

Things have been going much better, praise God! I will never feel completely relaxed, however. I was too traumatized. I’ll never be the same. Maybe that’s a good thing. I just feel like I’ll never know when my life will collapse and go to pot. Even if and though I’ve learned a lot, my human self is eternally shaken. Anyway, didn’t go to church yesterday. I...

The strangest thing happened today. Ok, first, a recap. I’ve started eating a raw cuisine diet again. It’s been about 12 days of !00% raw. (I almost got off it yesterday because I was starving. I ended up getting some VitaCoco water and it filled me right up). Anyway, starting reading posting again at www.goneraw.com and getting psyched by the community. Of course,...
Yikes! Just now reading Galatians 5:21 about drunkenness and wild parties. My party on Saturday was off the chain. We ate and then went out dancing. Needless to say, we were all drunk. I got home after 3. I don’t know what to do or think. I not really a drinker. In fact, I only started drinking AFTER I converted to Christianity because we would do these social events where wine was...

Today is my birthday! I should be happier than I am. I probably sound like a total psycho but my issue is real. I have something weird going on with me. I’ve been getting dizzy spells, really bad ones that come even when my eyes are closed and I’m in the bed. The room just starts spinning. Also, I’ve been sweating like crazy at times. I start sweating in my scalp,...
