I talk honestly and openly about my experiences with mental illness, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome through the lens of feminism, fat acceptance and process theology. I also do recipe and book reviews. My mission is to spread the message that hope is always real for a better life, despite living in a world that is often very harsh.

Psalm 12 and The Road to Recovery


Finally, my depression seems to have lifted! I am feeling productive and it is a wonderful thing! I wish I could write more, but I have got to get ready for work and eat lunch, so I'll just have to leave my version of Psalm 12 to ponder. Compare it to the original here.
*********************************
Help Your people, O Godde!
I am afraid.
Your followers are not to be found
And I cannot find holiness anywhere.

You speak in tongues of love
And you do not only comfort the needy,
But are prepared to fight for them.
As am I.

Let Your people speak in love to one another;
Let us also act in love.
You are the Supreme Example;
Let the people follow You.
It is too dangerous to follow any other.
