Dan was all excited last night. He texted from work that it was the premiere night for the reboot of Will & Grace. His text got me excited for the show, too. This is the truth, before last night I had never seen an episode of Will & Grace except for one in 2000 where they were lampooning ex-gay ministries. When that one aired, I was the Executive Director of a local Exodus ministry in Texas little over two years before joining Exodus' staff in 2002. I was SO upset during that show. I was incredibly angry with the actors. But, I felt I had to watch because everyone in our groups and online forums (what we did before Facebook) would be … [Read more...] about Will & Grace Unfiltered
Good morning! Here is another Post-Irmageddon Update: LOTS of loved ones traveling today so please pray. Got up this morning at the butt-crack of dawn to take Dan to the airport. He is going to visit and work with some friends in Alabama for a week. But, while he is leaving the state, millions are still trying to get home. My parents and a lot of friends are trying to get back into Florida and I have heard from three different ones that it's been horrible traffic. I know they are anxious to get home so join me in praying for all the congestion to clear up, people stay calm, and they are safe. My parent's house is down southwest of here so … [Read more...] about Post Hurricane Irma Update
While there is plenty to accomplish while prepping for the storm, the only high priority five alarm items I have on the nefarious gay agenda here in Mount Dora today is to score some bottled water and/or find containers to store tap water. Not succeeding in my quest as of yet but we still have a few days if the hurricane prediction track holds true. Floridians have been watching the devastation of Hurricane Harvey in Texas with empathy and understanding. While not all of us have experienced the complete devastation of historic record breaking flooding, many of us know exactly what it is like to live with anxiety over that impending "cone … [Read more...] about Prepping For Hurricane Irma
YAY! So excited! At 81,115 words and 12 chapters, the rough draft of my memoir is done! A few minutes ago, Dan and I raised cocktail and said, "cheers!" in celebration. I finished it about 4:45 pm today. When I took my hands off the keyboard realizing it's done, that was a moment I won't likely forget. The journey will continue of course because there is the need for editing, finding an agent (might have one soon), publisher and all that. But, having the rough draft done is a sweet feeling. Thank you for your friendship, encouragement, and support. It's gettin' there! … [Read more...] about It’s Official, Rough Draft is Done!
I truly believe 2017 is going to be amazing. Up to this point, 2015 was a year of coming out of the church closet and the excitement, adrenaline, highs, and lows of discovering life truly unhindered. In 2015 I cast off the last grave clothes of legalism adopted from many culturally conditioned religious ideals that are unnecessary and unattainable. No more. 2016 took things a bit further and was definitely a settling in period. 2017 looks to be quite an exciting, even liberating, year. I feel it in my bones. 2015-16 was also doing the best I could to not trade in one form of legalism for another more "progressive" kind. Legalism is … [Read more...] about 2017 Is Going To Be Amazing
