I had a strange thing happen today. I haven't checked this blog or the email affiliated with it for months. I've been too busy dealing with other junk. And for some reason I checked the email account this morning. There was a message sent yesterday. A message from a woman going through the gay husband thing and not wanting to share all until I responded.
I don't know if any of you believe in God, but I do. I'm blessed to belong to a church that at its core believes in being inclusive and in justice for all. My church has many gay and lesbian members, all of whom are good, honest people who believe in a Jesus who died for their sins (not one of which is being homosexual). But I digress. I'm thinking God tapped me on the shoulder and whispered, "Check that email account."
I can't promise I'll blog as much as I used to. I have a lot more going on now -- involvement at church, a job, and just stuff in general.
Also, the yo is swinging down. You know about yo, don't you? Sometimes it's up and sometimes it's down. Three years ago I was learning about my ex-husband's affairs and preparing to ask for a divorce, somthing I'd never, ever imagined possible -- affairs or divorce. And pretty soon, what would have been my wedding anniversary will come up.
Someone at church shared a few weeks ago that they'd just celebrated their 54th anniversary. Later, a friend asked if hearing that made me feel bad. I had to be honest with him and told him it did because it reminded me I'd never have a golden anniversary celebration. But I was quick to add that I'd never want anyone else to NOT share their good news because of me. I'm truly happy for that couple. They are living examples of what true Christians are.
So... how's YOUR yo?
