Musgrave Must Go!

 

This woman is vile.  Colorado’s Congressional 4th District has an incredible opportunity this November to relieve Congress of this vile, bigoted woman.  To think of the civilian death count in Iraq now documented as between 90,000 to 150,000, the soldiers we’ve lost at over 4,000, and over 30,000 of our young men and women wounded, and this woman focuses on gay marriage?  This woman makes me sick.

If you aren’t familiar with Mrs. Marilyn Musgrave she is best known as the main sponsor of the Federal Marriage Amendment that thankfully failed miserably in 2006 and again in 2007.  As if those two failures weren’t enough she’s at it again co-sponsoring the same legislation this time around.  She’s known in the square state as "Mad Cow" Marilyn and desperately needs to be put out to pasture.

She has a fantastic opponent this year, Betsy Markey, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed and my wallet open in hopes that her bigotry and hatred are finally removed from our Capitol.

Things I Love

So I’ve decided to do posts on things I love, and add them to the Things I Love page. I figure this is a good way for everyone(my massive audience) to get to know me better and to make use of the “Page” function of WordPress.

So the first thing I love:

Get Firefox

Oh, Firefox, what’s there to say that hasn’t already been said? Not that much. Just get Firefox, okay? The extensions and themes alone make it worth the jump from Internet Explorer. I cannot imagine not having all of my glorious extensions(13 at the time of this post). Just give it a try, you’ll love it.

 

 

The second thing I love:

So, yes, I live in Colorado but this is purely by my choice and initiative. I moved to Colorado in October of 2004. I am in love with this place. I started out in Fort Collins, then Denver, then Centennial and now I’m back in Denver. I see myself staying here for a while, I love having the city and nature all so close together. I think everyone should visit here at least once.

Journaling The Journey

Oh, why do the good days end
Makes me wonder now
With the way I feel
If yesterday was even real

And why, oh why do You seem so far away
Could it be that I’ve gone too far this time
And can I make You change Your mind, oh.
Why should any day, why should any day
Why should any day, should any day
Be like today?

Do I wallow in my insecurities?
Do I trust what my feelings are tellin’ me?
Or do I rest in the promise You made me
That You’ll never leave?

One of Those Days" – Chris Rice

Well, I'm finally blogging again.  It's been a while since I had my last blog.  Some people discovered it that were not supposed to see it so I had to remove it.  Here's hoping it doesn't happen again here.

All of this blog is about a journey.  I'm in a period now where I am incredibly confused, lost, and frightened.  I am questioning everything I've ever believed(again) and it's all pretty terrifying.  I am a Christian.  I am gay.  I am engaged to a wonderful guy.  I am feeling trapped.  I am twenty-three years old, and have yet to obtain my college degree.  I am passionate about civil rights, youth suicide prevention, and many other aspects of Social Work.  I am also passionate about Youth Ministry.  At this point, I am trying to figure out where God wants me, and recently, if God even has specific plans for us as I've always believed.  Is He even the God I've always believed in?  I believe in God, I believe there is a Creator…everything else is up for grabs to some degree.

Yeah, I'm questioning everything.  I feel like I've just started walking through a cave, devoid of any light.  I know I will get through it, but I'm afraid of the pain I may encounter or may cause others along the way.  I'm afraid of broken dreams, broken hopes, and broken hearts.  If you pray, pray for me.  If you've been through this journey, share your experience with me.

What if you’re right?
And he was just another nice guy
What if you’re right?
What if it’s true?
They say the cross will only make a fool of you
And what if it’s true?

What if he takes his place in history
With all the prophets and the kings
Who taught us love and came in peace
But then the story ends
What then?

But what if you’re wrong?
What if there’s more?
What if there’s hope you never dreamed of hoping for?
What if you jump?
And just close your eyes?
What if the arms that catch you, catch you by surprise?
What if He’s more than enough?
What if it’s love?

What if you dig, What if you dig
Way down deeper than your simple-minded friends
What if you dig?
What if you find
A thousand more unanswered questions inside
That’s all you find

What if you pick apart the logic
And begin to poke the holes
What if the crown of thorns is no more
Then folklore that must be told and retold

But what if you’re wrong?
What if there’s more?
What if there’s hope you never dreamed of hoping for?
What if you jump?
And just close your eyes?
What if the arms that catch you, catch you by surprise?
What if He’s more than enough?
What if it’s love?

You’ve been running as fast as you can
You’ve been looking for a place you can land so long
But what if you’re wrong?

What if you jump?
And just close your eyes?
What if the arms that catch you, catch you by surprise?
What if He’s more than enough?
What if it’s love?
