Routine Ramblings of an Occasionally Interesting Housewife

First, the short version
Rainbow cross
Sunday 30 April 2006, I prayed for Jesus to come into my heart and be the master of my life.

If you know me (does anyone read this who doesn't?), you know I've always considered myself a Christian. When I was six years old, I prayed to ask Jesus to forgive my sins. I think of this difference now as that when I was a child, I gave my death the Jesus. This last Sunday, I gave my life to Him.

If you know me, you may think a lot of my life choices appear to be incompatible with being a Christian.

This isn't so much about my choices and the details of the life I have made for myself, as it is about the very specific detail of my relationship with Christ. In the past two years at Quest, I've confronted myself with the reality of Christ and what it really means to have Him in my heart, and realized that I just didn't. That I believed all of it, but that His presence wasn't real for me.

The long version of this story is just beginning to unfold as I learn to live what I've been learning throughout my life. The second half of prayer is listening for the answer.

I'll be writing about the pieces as I have time, and I welcome conversations about what has brought me here.

your lifestyle choices are nothing to do with your relationship with jesus, so ignore the people who seem to judge you vs their ideals of what christianity is/should be.

it's not my cup of tea, as i'm sure you're aware, but i'm glad you've found jesus, if it makes you happy and feel complete. =)


I will enjoy reading about your journey.

In my opinion, from what I understand about Christianity, God/Jesus is all about love - love God, love thy neighbor, love thyself. I don't see a conflict in being Christian vs being poly, especially since poly is more about relationships (which may or may not include sex) and the added strength of being able to connect with more people, more deeply.

But maybe that's just me.

Congrats on finding Jesus.
