21 Łesson Thus Far I awakened to the joyous sound of heaven's orchestra and flapping wings of the synchronized swimmers. I was reminded of joy on my mothers face after giving labor. I am thankful for the hips that cracked. The deep velvet of my mother. She held me in her arms looking into my eyes as the surrounding audience applauded, but we couldn't hear them. I thank God for allowing me to experience 21 full years filled with endless blessings and mercies that I never disserved. I thank God for humbling me in order to restore my heart, mind, and soul. Many black men never reach the age of 21. There are no words to describe how thankful I was to awaken to the warm glistening sun and crystal blue skies to celebrate 21 years of life. I thank God for the new friendships that have formulated and for the friends that stood by me despite the attacks of the enemy. I thank God for my loving family members and mother and father who demonstrated the beauty and ideal image of marriage. I thank God for placing successful African American teachers, relatives, friends, and parents in my life so that their testimony would prove to me that happiness and fulfillment is possible. I am especially thankful for Jesus, who mended the broken pieces of my heart. He stood by me even when I cursed His name and turned away. He restored my confidence, love, determination, and salvation. He pulled the tattered silk from between my lungs in order to thread a clean heart. He healed my soul when I experienced racism, harassment, bullying, slander, and malevolent attacks from the enemy. He caused my torturers to become my remedy. I thank you all for your prayers and birthday messages of love and joy. I am so excited to experience the beautiful aspects of the plans God has my life in the future.
