My state defeated an amendment filled with hate and instead filled out the ballot in love. Every state with LGBT marriage on the ballot voted for equality and love. Love wins. Of course, we always knew it would--but then again, it also seemed like such an impossible possibility.
I'm not sure whether I need a retreat or a REALLY big party. There is something about feeling a bit closer to the Kingdom of God that makes me long for that heavenly neighborhood of love, mercy and compassion, where crying and pain will be no more, and where there are awesome coffee shops and bookstores and where ALL of the folk I love live nearby.
