Recognize that there are seasons for not seeking marriage. Understand the gift of singleness. When you have this gift, there may indeed be struggles, but the main thing is that God is helping you to grow spiritually and be fruitful in the lives of others despite them.

Gets angry with Stan about his father Randy saying the n-word on Wheel of Fortune. But then again, this is pretty understandable, considering how Stan kept on pushing the issue on him constantly. It also helps that Token was going to let it go, but Stan albeit unintentionally wasn’t making things better. Is a rather nice kid all around, but don’t act racist around him.
