As I sit on my top bunk with my much needed fan to my left and a picture of Jesus facing me to my right (also much needed!) I thank God for everything. Starting a day with thoughts of despair and not being thankful will create inside of me a day of being unproductive. That folk’s is not the core desire of a person made from a divine source of benevolence. It is part of it however, because without despair or being unproductive, how do you know happiness or productivity?
So anyways, I have a new bunk mate and he is almost 80 years old. Where do they find these guys?! The man barely walks or speaks and when he does you need an international galactic translator because no one here can figure out what he is trying to say! To be nice I let him watch my TV during the day and I get it back at night. Yes, all is well here in prison. I guess the only good thing you can do in here is something nice for someone else, and doing something good makes you feel good and blocks those thoughts of not feeling good…WOW! LOL!
I was talking to one of the correctional officers the other day as he sat on his computer. I asked him if he would look me up on his data base. He could not believe all the names I had used in the past in my outlaw days and really I couldn’t either. We laughed as I said, “It’s a wonder I know who I really am!” Today with the right daily choices driving my forward I am who God made, at last.
