Last night, I was at an LGBT event, as I am every Tuesday night. It used to be the case that every time I did something LGBT related, I felt my Judaism trickle through my fingers and disappear, as if I couldn't be both at once, but wearing arba kanfot fixed all that...or so I thought.
I don't know what it was about last night's event that triggered me. I did not feel the old disconnect from God and Judaism; on the contrary, I felt very connected to God and my Judaism, and therein lay the problem.
Intellectually, I do not believe I am dirty or sinful for being lesbian. For I am fearfully and wonderfully made (that's a quote from somewhere, just can't remember where), made in God's image, exactly the way God wanted me. God wanted me this way. God wanted me this way.
I belong to God.
And of course closing with a picture of the most adorable kid ever, Mr. "Jacob!"
"Don't tell God how big your storm is; tell your storm how big your God is."
I believe in God.
I believe in God.

- I am a bipolar, Jewish young adult (had my Hebrew birthday, the one I count, and turned 23 this past January) who also suffers from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. I love life and I live for my best friends: they are my purpose and my reason for trying so hard. I remain passionately devoted to those I love; I will not let my disorders make me totally self-centered. I like to read, write, and sew. My Rabbinical school plans did not work out, and I am now hoping to go into the field of Early Childhood Education. Please note: I am currently maintaining only Carried in His Hands. Enjoy!
