2007 In Review Version 001
Began 2007 in Bradley, West Virginia, USA, at my second college, the Appalachian Bible College (ABC). I began attending ABC in the fall of 2006, right after graduating my first college in Pottersville, New York (NY), The Word Of Life Bible Institute (WOLBI). In the spring, in May of 2007, I returned to my house in Forest Grove, Oregon (OR), to my mother. I started volunteering at Free Geek Computers in Portland (PDX). My younger sister, Crystal, encouraged me to apply at Camp Kuratli in Boring, Oregon. This is a Salvation Army Camp. On the application, I drew a cartoon version of myself. Mike Kurtz saw that and hired me to work in the Wilderness Program for that summer. In August, attended a youth conference (WYI), met Lincoln Hawk who encouraged me to apply for Revolution Hawaii. Outline of 2007 - Revolution Hawaii Diary & Photos - I donated my income to mom.
I applied and made the team. I arrived in Hawaii for Revolution Hawaii on Friday, the 31st of August, 2007. Our mission trip lasted for ten months into June of 2008. In the morning, we had missionary training courses. We had a daily Quiet Time (SOAP) where we studied the Bible individually and then would share our insights as a group. We had seven members on our team, including me. We would exercise in the morning, around 06:00 AM. Devotions around 07:00 or 08:00 AM. In the afternoon, we would do ministries. I volunteered at the Boys & Girls Club or actually a YMCA, a homeless shelter washing the dishes, and a few other places. On Saturdays, we fed homeless people sandwiches and water. In December, I acted in a music video called Get Your Joy On (GYJO) which was directed & edited by Jeff Walters. The producer and musician was Mejee Lutcher. All three of us starred in the video. A few other people made cameos and helped in making it.
Some highlights from Reviewing 2007, as follows:

2007-04-18 - Wednesday - Apr. 18th - 02:00 PM EST - Steemit - I wrote: "....Refocus. PURPOSE: The purpose of this entry is to remind myself of my first Love instead of being distracted by other things. I am amazed at how God is working in my life, and I am amazed at the prayers of others, and that prayer works. This entry, the idea behind prayer, and even my own way of life may often be unpopular but it is right. I must be motivated to remember who I am. DETAILS: I wrote to myself, before today's chapel, "You have been distracted with a deep feeling of liking [X] and therefore have forgotten who you are." Sure, the feelings are strong or full of emotions, for X, but why am I letting my feelings control me when I should let God control me? I pray that I seek to be refocused each day....."

She seem relaxed and understanding. I am still thinking about all this and I am thinking about what I feel about all this. I need to write more about this special night. FIRST SPECIAL MEETING WITH FEMALE: It was the first time I ever had like a planned meeting with a girl ever, in such matters. Never have I ever fell for a girl in such a way, before; but now, I feel, never will I ever fall for a girl like that ever again....."
2007-04-23 - Monday - 10:57 AM - April 23rd - L4OJ - Facebook - Heather Christenson to me: "I knew Tiffany as well...it was very hard to say goodbye to such an amazing young woman and friend. You know, I have so many fun memories with her....it just makes me smile to think about the time that I was able to spend with her. She touched many people in her life and isn't forgotten."

2007-04-23 - Monday - 08:00 PM EST - Steemit - I wrote: "...JERK: It is now official that I feel like a jerk because of my actions that came from feelings. The last couple of years I have thought about dating girls that I would like; however, I dare myself not to until it is time to get serious (married). That dare never changed but somehow I let my guard down. I basically started liking a girl. Then, like a jerk, I started talking about her online (like I am doing right now). I was not considering starting anything with her and I did not even think that she or anybody should know about such matters. Somehow, I started letting more people know until she found out about it. I met with her and told her what she already knew and then she told me some things that I somewhat already knew. It is sad that I have to live such a life....."
2007-04-25 - Wednesday - 07:03 PM - Apr 25th - L4OJ - Facebook - Laura Courser to me: "Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it's better to leave them broken than try to hurt yourself putting it back together.
Laughter and tears are both responces to frustration and exhustation. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward. -Kurt Vonnegut
Nobody really cares if you're miserable, so you might as well be happy. -Chynthia Nelms."
2007-04-25 - Wednesday - 07:22 PM - Facebook - Laura added: "*Sometimes I wish I were a little kid again, skinned knees are easier to fix than broken hearts. *I thought when love for you died, I should die. It's dead. Alone, most strangely, I live on."

PERSPECTIVE: I do not know exactly what I have been feeling and thinking this past year concerning life, love, girls (or even that particular girl), or anything; but I do know that I often forget to look at life through the lens of eternal perspective. I may try to better define what I have been feeling, thinking, and doing but I must better yet talk about what I need to be doing in life. I was talking to a good friend of mine, Ryan Blok, and I was being reminded that I must focus on giving all my time and energy to my first Love, my Creator and Savior. Let me tell you that I officially do not like anybody as of right now and I do not plan on even considering it for a long time. It will only be harder for me to fall for a girl but it is better, actually, now. It will be tough to consider becoming more than friends with a girl from now on but that means I will not fall for junk (not saying that x was anything less than not junk). Recently I thought about becoming more than friends with X but I knew that I could not but I told her about it anyways. I am better about all that, by the way. I need to talk about my past in this love journal. I keep forgetting. I need to focus on my first Love. So much to say about all this but so very little time; But what is most important?....."
2007-04-28 - Saturday - 02:00 PM EST - Steemit - I wrote: "...I need to learn how to be a genuine friend even if I feel sad and lonely. Please note that this journal probably only makes sense to me, the writer, but what would you expect. Never mind that. With that said, let me just spill out my guts. Through, I need to make a more secret journal because I will not say everything here. This school year has been the toughest yet best that i have ever have. I may have liked one girl or the next during the course of my life but I think that I foremost desire not love immediately but instead friendship. I may be a good friend but I want to learn how to do so better. I feel too weird. I do not want to go back to my home in Oregon. I do not want to leave the friendships I have with so many people....."

I do not know what will happen in the future but I do know that I have a day job, so to speak, and I must stop day dreaming or planning to do something that was never meant to be, maybe. If you are praying for me then thanks because it is working...."

This means editing and maybe deleting what I have wrote in previous entries, here. I should. People say I should. I could. I would. I plan to do that. I have spent too much time looking at the fruits that I have forgot to observe the root problems in my life. I am a mess. But I know a doctor. Do you know the Doctor. I feel that it is the end of the world when I return to my home in Oregon but I know the Doctor. I can schedule an appointment with Him any time I need to. That is better than anybody, anything (or any girl) that I have or ever will know. Do you know the doctor? HOW CAN I IMPROVE MY DOCTOR VISITS?"
2007-05-09 - Wednesday - 09:00 AM EST - Steemit - I wrote: "I have challenged myself to not only share my feelings towards who I may like or whatever ('love') but I should also share my feelings and thoughts towards upcoming events. MY SUMMER OF 2007 LOOKS SCARY: I am not looking forwards to my summer but I know that my Creator has my back, yo. I am coming home to a trailer. I have no official room or room for anything. I do not have a job yet. My abusive unsaved alcoholic dad will be near by, I am coming home to help out my mom. I do not know how long that will last. I do not know what tommorrow will bring but I know that I cannot do anything by myself. I know that I cannot rely on my feelings. I know that I need to stay more loyal to whatever that I need to be doing."
2007-05-09 - Wednesday - 09:48 PM - May 9th - L4OJ - Facebook - Timothy Knight of Australia to me: "Hey Joey. Thanks for making me an officer. I'll do my best to be worthy of my title." Liked by Jill.

Met New Girl
2007-07-23 - Monday - 01:15 AM - Steemit - I wrote: "I like a new girl. Eh. Woa. This is not suppose to happen. Sad. Good. Bad. Does anybody ever read this? A while back I met Melody Millermon. Then I met Amanda Krubensacker. Later, met Jen Moore. The Doctor made people to be liked by other people. It is good to like people but it is not good to fantasize and worship them. So, what am I trying to say? I am trying to say that I have seen many people, have met less, and have liked fewer. Somehow, I am thinking of three different people right now but I will not mention their names, yet...."
2007-07-29 - Sunday - 02:58 AM - Steemit - I wrote: ".....My favorite was Shelby, then Grace, then the taller Brandon Smith because they taught me about how to express joy and life in a very practical way. Thank you, my best friends. Shelby would always say, "best friend" and I learn so much from her words and life. The first week of camp had many fun characters, the second week had many real rough draft people, but the third week was worth it. I love life more now. I love the things I learn. I have been struggling with how I look at life but I am learning that I need to express more life....."

2007-09 - As a team, we lived on a homeless beach outside of Honolulu for a week in order to find out what it would be like to be homeless.
On Tuesday nights, we would watch Rob Bell videos and talk about it. One time, the TV was on Obama in a big debate. I looked at him in 2007, on the television, and thought to myself that he would become the next President even if there was something odd about him.
