So I decided not to talk with my friend today. After an hour talking with her about her life she seems very off. I believe there is alot going on there. She'd like our family to come over Friday night. I'm going to call her tonight and let her know about Adam. I just didn't think telling her face to face today was a good idea. I think she needs time to wrap her brain around it. She does need to know before we get together though. She has said things to me in the past that would definitely be awful if she said it in front of Adam (or me really). I'm having dinner tonight with my great friend Kate she is a great person. I will feel really good venting with her. Zumba was good. I had a lot on my mind so I was a bit distracted. I had a good conversation with Adam after school and I feel a bit better about somethings. I had an awesome eggwhite omlette this morning, plain greek yogurt, small bowl of chili for lunch and some yogurt with blueberries for snack. Have a great night!

Happy Tuesday!

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

Heading to Zumba at 9:15. I'm having lunch with my best friend from high school. We've been friends forever. She is Christian and has said things in the past that were negative about being gay. She wants to get together with the families soon and I feel I need to let her know that Adam is gay before we all get together. I love her and her family. I'm concerned at how this is gonna go down. She is such a sweet person but when it comes to her religous beliefs its like she becomes this other person. I hope it goes well because I have been refered to as a "pit bull" when it comes to my family. I don't want this to be the end of our friendship but honestly I'm not sure where it will go. I feel like Adam is getting consumed by announcing this to the world. It's not like he just can't be who he is. He feels it has to be a statement instead of a part of Adam. Mike is concerned as well. I'm going to have a conversation with Adam about this. I just have to wrap my brain around how to go about it. One day at a time, right? Have a good day!

    Just see how the conversation goes and go from there. There is no reason that this has to be her business. If anything, Adam can see how short sighted people can be and learn to cope.

I really have no words of wisdom here for you.

As for Zumba. Never did that. There are no classes here for that.

    I was tempted last night to do Zumba but figured I better wait until Move2Lose is done. Too many irons in the fire makes Danny too tired.

    I just can't do Zumba I totally lack the co- ordination.
You know some of my story and it has been a long hard battle with trying to adjust to being a Gay Christian. I have been deeply hurt at times by Christians and sometimes it is very hard to convince my friends that their is a place is God's Kingdom for them and that the church can be a safe place.
My personal beliefs rest on certain ideas.
1. Romans 3:23 "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God"
Therefore none have hope without Jesus. It doesn't matter if you are gay or straight.
2. Depending on being straight is like the Jews depending on being Jewish
This is very clear from Ephesians 2 and Romans 4
13 It was not through the law that Abraham and his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith.

3. We have only One Saviour, The Lord Jesus Christ and it is only when we fall before Him knowing that we can do NOTHING to earn His love that we find He is the Key to the Kingdom.

4. In the world we allow small children to choose who they want as friends and yet in we think we have a right to choose friends for the King of the universe. This we do by saying that one kind of person can be a Christian but any other can not i.e If you want to be a Christian you can't be gay.
5. This is blasphemy, because what we are in essence saying is that GOD is in our theology not allowed to choose for Himself. This is not only a Gay issue it applies to everyone of all tribes and nations.
6. The Holy Spirit convicts of sin. We are called to love and pray not convict
7. Of course I believe that certain lifestyles are wrong, e.g Rape is wrong, adultery is wrong and as gay people we need to live moral lives
Mathew 7:16 By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?

Any way I thought I would give you a couple of verses (weapons to use in case you need to talk to your friend on a religious level
I will be praying for you.

    Good luck with your lunch date today. I hope you are able to maintain your friendship but if not, just remember that it is her choice...who would want to give up a friend like you, not me!

Maybe it is just a step for Adam...this statement of his...perhaps it is what he needs to feel proud, I don't know. But it is probably a good idea to talk to him about it.

I tried zumba yesterday. The teacher was gone so they were doing a video. It was kind of hard to jump right in but with the dance I've had before and my rhythym, it wasn't too bad. Hey, it was free since the students were running the show. I can go to another free video session this Thursday and back with the teacher next week. I'll give it a go for a few sessions to see how I like it. I may be interested in teaching a bellydancing class instead.

Anyway, have a great day, my friend! emoticon

Enjoying a normal Monday. I had some greek yogurt with a banana. A cup of coffee and later a cup of chamomile tea. I'm going to shower, pick up the house, go to Target, pick up tax info at the town hall, have lunch with mom, bring Adam to therapist and get his allergy shots. Pick up Josh from school make some baked chicken marinated in hot sauce :) go to my Zumba class and watch some mind numbing tv with family :). I never thought a normal Monday would bring such a smile to my face emoticon Thank God for the simple things in life. Enjoy your normal Monday!

What a day...

Sunday, March 27, 2011

So yesturday Adam told his best friend from school. Jared was great about it. He was surprised but said he honestly didn't care. :) Adam was sooooo relieved. We met our family friends last night for dinner. Tori is Adams friend whom he told first after us that he is gay. We told her parents last night and they were good. Not as great as I think Adam would have liked but he will have many experiences like that I think. Joe wan't to happy I think but I also think he expected it. He really was not conributing to telling them but Adam really wanted it out there. So there won't be to many more "announcements" . A couple family friends and then the words out. At least personally. As far as school goes Adam will let it filter as he chooses. It seems he has more control over that then I ever thought he would. Kids keep confidence much more then they ever did when I was a teenager. I'm headed to my Zumba class ready to dance by booty off :). I'll need it for dinner at my inlaws tonight. Wish me luck :)

    I am so glad that he is finding his way through all the hurdles there will still be good days and bad days. some will accept others not but its wonderful that he has a secure support network.
Now its time for you to take care of you nice to hear about the Zumba class. I would never have enough coordination to manage that so well done and enjoy emoticon

    good that things are going well...
i wonder why some gay folks feel the need to tell while others just live and let their lives speak for themselves as do straights folks... i suppose by sharing we gain acceptance and confirmation... and I am glad Adam is finding both

    Adam must be so glad to know that you're there for him to guide him through this difficult but very exciting time. Adam is finding out that the people who are important to him will love him and value him for who he is.

Happy Saturday.

Adam just asked me if I think its a good idea for him to tell his friend Jared that he is gay. I told him he should do whats best for him. Do you think that was good advise? Please give me some advise. I'm trying to do right. He also texted Mike. Hopefully he will get back soon. Jared just got here. Here we go :). My dance class was a bust. I shouldn't say that actually, I did get a good workout but it was a whole new dance routine and it was very frustrating. I really didn't like some of the moves. That doesn't happen very offen and is extremely annoying. Please get back with words of wisdom!

    It was absolutely great advice to tell him to do what makes him feel comfortable. He will make good choices and, sometimes, not so great choices. But he'll learn from them all.

    You must have got used to the routine that they had for dance and then they changed it up. It is totally understanding that you were frustrated. I would be too. The only thing is is that you will do better the next time and the time after that.
