The Book of H&T (Chapter 15)

Hello America,

Sorry I am late.  I am at work.

Had to take a break last night, my job isn't working out the way the way it should, nothing is wrong, but just God's will interfered.  I get judged on customer feedback, but what is one to do when you don't get any feedback? ;)

So I am stuck in limbo, and I am stressed, I'm mortal, I got bills.  I don't want to go back to doing illegal acts to pay bills.......  I don't want to go down the roads I've been done before.

But for the first time, deep down in my soul although my mind won't let me rest from the stress, my spirit is settled.  Something deep down in me, says God is in control that God has something greater for me and whether it is through this job or not is of no concern to me....

It's like an energy that makes me tell the world how good that this God that I fight for, with, and about is... more than life to me....

But I can't....

not my nature....

So as we go into The Game, our main character Malik Wright, is going through something some of us have already, he lost his home, it don't matter if he didn't deserve it was his.....

he paid for it......

it was his home and now that's gone.

And b/c God, Allah, Buddah, luck whatever you need to call it, because of a video, he has a chance to be the qb again, helped by the one he didn't care about being traded, his friend, damn a teammate Derwin Davis as Derwin had to learn about what Malik brings to team.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

Politics makes strange bedfellows......

Derwin and Malik had to go through their own respective battles to learn the wide receiver ain't the lead, and the qb of the team is the head and for each to be comfortable in their respective positions in the body of their team, their community, their families.....

We think time is a waste but since we ain't the author of no chapters... can't we see by now, that every detail matters, who are you to say what was needed in the long run or not?

The Dallas Mavericks are getting back to what makes a champion, defense, without Chandler, Without Brewer, Without Butler, Without Stephenson....

why b/c a coach, an asst.  knew his role in the body called the team and didn't question, didn't need no headlines....

Simply told his body members "let's get to work fellahs...."

Damn..... the truths we can learn from a simple game.

No, the defensive player of the year, Ain't Lebron, Ain't Kobe, Ain't Dwight Howard, it's a player whose nickname indicates the mix, he puts you in defense, the matrix, Shawn Marion.....

Now, Lamar Odom, who everybody saying "Coach, let me handle the rock...sometimes, I got handles" which he does......

Can't you see the message,

Can't you see what God is showing you through this show, through these men, when you know your place....?

The team flows.........

No fighting over stats, no fighting over the biggest star,

Just Coach, let me do my part, my brother, my sister, let me do my part...

and when we all focus on what we supposed to do

A Champion is built.....

I don't mention politics right now, because I don't have to, politics mention me ;)

When you got Boehner, downplaying payroll deals, you got Pelosi trying to give the GOP advice, you got every GOP member walking off Water's trial so she can't blackmail them with old secrets.....

I don't have to do anything else.....

the word is out on the hill, a new force, a new brand, a new breed of people is coming to the hill.

And we don't do blackmail, for there are no secrets in us that will allow us to sell this country short, for our burdens we leave with the Lord.

We are free to be the body pieces we need to be because we don't worry about things we can't control, we accept we human, we know we ain't perfect, we don't judge.

We simply go about the work of the people.....

And in the reaction of that the hill has more unity than Obama could have ever imagined, because there is a "grace" and "mercy" coming to the hill that will bring more change and hope than Obama ever imagined........

So go rest America,

go worry about your job, I'm right there with you.......

but at the end of the day, as long as you are doing what you are supposed to be doing, it will work it out, won't feel like it all the time, but it will.

Ive been homeless, locked up and everything in between, I know some parts of the path don't feel good....

But you part of a team, you part of a nation, that is going to do right by you.....

Let that provide a little solace.....

And to my Malik's in the league......baby rise up, past the doubt, rise up past the hate.

to my Derwin's rise up and support your brother.....relish in knowing your place.....

And Lamar Odom thank you, for giving me strength in your story....  You want the ball again, and to me that means you ready to ball again....

Amen, brother, God put you in Dallas for reason.

We water tight.  Where there is faith there can be no fear, no a damn drop ;) 

Until Monday.....gotta find a way to keep my job until God gives me another legal money source...

LOL! take care know your place, know your body, know your God
