I should probably start this post by apologizing for the fact that I am going to upset/offend half of my meager readership. Except, the truth is, I’m not sorry. I’m quite happy to have moved past that closed-minded, judgmental, Baptist girl of yore. (Not that I don’t love or respect Baptists. I’m just glad I’m not there anymore. Very glad.) God has brought me to where I am today and I am good with that.
There’s this blogger named Glennon who I discovered this week, thanks to the Huffington Post. If it’s possible to be in love with someone I have never met, then I am definitely in love with her. And the way she writes. And the way she writes what she thinks, no apologies. I initially read this article that was posted on Huff Post and I almost started crying. Or jumping up and down screaming “Hallelujah.” Then I found her blog and I found this post that blew me away. And I haven’t been able to think about anything else since. I have to admit that I’m a bit jealous that she beat me to this. Because, if I was going to write a letter to my kids about being gay this is exactly what I would write. Exactly. Wouldn’t change a thing. This is my favorite quote from the post:
And I better make sure that my children know beyond a shadow of a doubt that in God’s and their father’s and my eyes, they are okay. They are fine. They are loved as they are. Without a single unless.
