Transgender God, Part 1: What’s in a Name?

When I started this “Wild Kids, Wild God – 31 Days looking into God’s Heart” series, I had no idea how deep I’d go.

In recent posts of this series I started noting:

I use ‘He’ and ‘His’ as pronouns for God, but fully recognize God with both Male and Female  ‘identity’–for lack of a better word–, as evidenced by the human race and through the Bible…” Post coming soon!

This is that post, and the topic is dear to my heart. It may disturb, but can also encourage, and my desire has been, as best as I can, to put God’s Heart ‘out there,’ crazy as It may be.

So let me “come out” about this.

The Ax at the Root… Why I Cut Down my Grapevine

Day 13 in the “Wild Kids, Wild God- 31 Days Looking into God’s Heart”.


Four years ago we moved into our current home and it was the first time we had a garden. Some may find it small, but it’s a treasure to us and I’ve learned a lot from the plants, especially my Grapevine.

The first year it produced a few (maybe two?) small grape clusters. The second year I tried to encourage more growth by actively pruning. There were more grapes, but also more disease, and the grapes never ripened. (Hmmm. Is God trying to tell me something?) The third year the vine produced nothing at all and I watched with frustration as it withered from rot.

Beauty fades, Kindness Never Goes Out of Style

1 Real Woman, 18 photoshopped versions based on cultural preferences. Lesson learned: You’re Beautiful. Period.

We’re all one-of-a-kind, never to be repeated or replaced beings. Don’t be bothered by “standards” which are always changing and never satisfied.

If we want to work on/filter anything, let it be our Kindness and Love. That never goes out of style and does a world of good. Literally.

Watch: Colorblind man sees Purple for the First Time #HeavenGlimpse

It’s so easy to take vision and the beauty of color for granted. Watch the video when someone who is colorblind sees purple for the first time. Get a glimpse of how beautiful the world around us actually is. His response to grass broke my blind heart.  Continue reading “Watch: Colorblind man sees Purple for the First Time #HeavenGlimpse”

Makes no sense…Strawberry Tops

I’ve eaten strawberries my whole life and always thought the green tops were just that: green tops.

But upon closer inspection I found pattern and symmetry: triangular, pointed leaves in Star-formation, interspersed with oval strips.  Continue reading “Makes no sense…Strawberry Tops”

Rainbows are actually Full Circles!

Apparently, when seen from above, rainbows are actually CIRCLES! Considering rainbows are noted as symbolizing the promise of God never to wipe out the earth with water again, it seems appropriate that it be a circle, like a ring: never-ending and unbroken, like promises are supposed to be… Continue reading “Rainbows are actually Full Circles!”

The Stars are always Shining, Even if you Don’t See Them

Today is a grey, rainy day. My home is a bit chilly and everyone is sleepy. In our spirits, we can  experience “grey days”–and that may be putting it mildly. We can feel dark clouds of gloom, hopes dashed, spirits crushed, lonely in a deep pit. But like the grey day, somewhere in the sky there is the sun… Continue reading “The Stars are always Shining, Even if you Don’t See Them”

Makes no sense…Butterfly Wings

Apparently all that ‘dust’ on your fingers after touching a butterfly wing is actually individual scales, like fish scales. And each scale has a tip, imagine the base of a feather. What?! Continue reading “Makes no sense…Butterfly Wings”

Feeling like a Wasteland, but Beautiful as a Bride…

Yesterday I was on my bike for the first time since giving birth to my son. I passed a former patch of rotten, trash-ridden shrubs in my neighborhood. The municipality decided to remove pavement and make a new green space, but the foliage looked terrible Continue reading “Feeling like a Wasteland, but Beautiful as a Bride…”

Before you were a thought, You were a Dream…

Two years after my son was born I wasn’t expecting another baby. In fact, I was trying not to be pregnant. But I had a strange feeling Continue reading “Before you were a thought, You were a Dream…”
