I am grateful today for my wife, my children, grandchildren and friends. The past few days I’ve connected with a couple people who seem to be struggling. I want to fix it for them but alas, I cannot. I can listen and empathize and hope that gets them through their struggles.
I’ve been listening to the Bible in the morning when I walk the dogs. 45 minutes in the Word every morning keeps me mindful of our creator and the people around me. I started at the beginning and am almost to the end if Psalms.
I miss not having a Church home. The relationships and community are, for me, a vital part of my Christian experience. Being transgender in Middle Tennessee closes many doors. It’s sad really. Sad that the Christian community at large is so exclusive. Patty is offended by the condemnation and that keeps her at home. I’m wrestling with how we both stay connected spiritually. Thinking about Chip Ingram small group study.
Work keeps me busy and weekends end up being packed with chores around the house, shopping and the like. Doesn’t leave much space but certainly needs to be a priority for the two of us together.
