I'm like...totally astounded.
So sunday after service, my mother wanted to stick around and find one of her friends from Agape, saying that she had been on her heart. Upon finding her they began to chat, me and Vernon just kind of sitting around waiting for her. Finally the woman's husband came up to me saying he was wanting to talk to me, and had been wanting to ask my opinion on something.
We talked for a while about black issues in America, and in the middle of the conversation, he mentioned that I had a lot to say, and I should write a book. He said that being a good writer was God's blessing to me, and it was meant to be shared with the world. This caught me so off guard, because I hadn't really considered writing a book before, but now I am actually really considering it. I'm thinking that it would consist of my ideas about what's wrong with Black America, and what we can do as a people to improve upon it.
Now I've had people suggest that I do things before, but there was something about this time that really struck me. It made me feel like I am really supposed to do this, like God wants me to. It felt like God wanted that whole conversation to happen, just so he could tell me to share my thoughts with the world, and I'm listening to him.
I'm not really sure what EXACTLY I want to say in my book...but I think I'm going to do it. What y'all think?
