Hey, Hi, and Hello out there. That title though. the power in it, the rawness of it! just saying. Let me see if I can do it some justice, huh? The Power of Reign! Rain comes in many forms, many styles, and many meanings. The Gravity of the different forms and styles and meanings mean something a little different to me. Speaking of gravity, I posted again for the first time, a song by John Mayer titled, Gravity. Right at about 2 minutes and 50 seconds he does something with his guitar, that’s my heart. That’s what my heart feels like at times! So back to the Power of Reign. One vision I think about frequently is a scene from the movie 300. When the Spartans are taking cover under their shields from all the arrows the Persians are firing off at them. It is essentially raining death upon them. Death Reigns down upon them. It can be worded so many ways, but it still means the same. That’s what life does to me both good and bad. She, Life that is, rains down upon me. She REIGNS down upon me! She brings me to my knees. On the other hand, So does God. He reigns down upon me all the time, and his rain is all good, it’s all-powerful, and all meaningful. Can I handle it? Can I see the purpose? Can I see the meaning of the timing of it all? Well, if I can’t see the blessing will just have to be the blessing. I say that humbly. Today is August 21st, 2017. I chose today for many reasons to be the day I let loose to the public something I have been working on for a little over a year. #jaystrong will have life blown into its lungs today. Today we have an eclipse upon us in just a few short hours. Today is the first day of fall semester classes. It’s a Monday! I love Mondays for those of you who don’t get to read my facebook posts! I do not like stigmas! Mondays being the worst day of the week are a stigma I am trying to blow the fuck up. So, #jaystrong right? It is something I have been working on that was meant for me only initially, but as it began to work on me, I thought why should I keep this to myself? What if there are other people out there that might be just like me that can benefit from this. Earnest Hemmingway says, ” there’s nothing to writing, all you have to do is sit down in front of the typewriter and bleed emotion”! That right there folks is exactly what this #jaystrong has become to me. I have put countless sleepless nights into this. I have cried a river of tears whilst doing this! This is who and what I am. It has changed a broken man. SO, as I wrote on Facebook, I did this for me at first yes. But as it began to work on me, I did it for those who are gasping for air because hopelessness has them by the fucking throat! I did it for those who are unable to see another way! I did it! I just fucking did it! I finally have done something I am fucking proud of! Something that has my blood sweat and tears in it. something positive to help others without asking for anything in return but to see others benefit from it! So I hope this reigns down on others in a way they never thought possible! The power of rain, of reign! To those of you out there in the grip, I pray. Let me in or let me down! God bless and stay up. I love you and you matter to me! 2:22, my time here in South Bend, The Birth of a Legend!
