As the 24 comes into its ending play and we welcome the miracle of life, thankfulness and the savior, our Jesus Christ; it is a wonder where the connected dream frames come into play. Upon examination and reflection, I feel they’re all connected. A series up into the leading, of a new beginning and new start. A culmination of the endless Days and Sacrificial and Renegade nights. A promise to reveal, a reminder to keep to continue and don’t stop to believe. For in pacing and running this personalized and forever embedded race, soon shall we come to find, all that was recorded and safely stored to be called and claimed mine. There is more waiting for me. I am in no place where I quite imagined at the age of 18.
Yet, what light comes reflected and revealed in its own right time. Fight to follow, though careful to not fall, fail to prevail and soon be regaled. Thank you for holding me up and carrying me through. I am still standing, standing still, because of you.
