A Prayer For Those Who Cannot Accept Me--

Recommended Posts

VickySGV

A year ago, I sent coming out letters to two of my cousins after my sister's suicide when I thought we would meet during my sister's memorial service. That service never happened for a variety of reasons, but nevertheless I had hoped for a reply to my letters, but none had come in a year. A day or two ago, my youngest brother who was named as my sister's only heir (my other brother and I were specifically written out) and I were talking, and he told me he had talked to the cousins, who have totally refused to accept me on Fundamentalist grounds and who no longer wish to see me again. This inspite of the fact that we had been close for over 50 years.

Today I was going through my prayer book looking to see if I could find a suitable prayer for the situation I am in just now, and no, there is nothing specific on coming out and being shunned by other Christians, especially family members, and so I have composed my own. I truly wish that their hearts and minds can be opened for reconciliation, since all of us are approaching old age.

Here is the prayer I will be adding to my own daily office --

Gracious and loving God, you have given me the wisdom and peace to accept that I am different from your other children in body and spirit, and yet others who cry your name refuse to see me as one of your beloved ones as they feel themselves to be. I believe that you are capable of turning their hearts and minds and ask that You will touch their hearts to accept me as you created me, as you have touched my heart to that realization. In time, allow them to reconcile themselves to me, and give me the strength and resolve to hold out my heart to them until that good day shall come. I ask this in the name of your son, my savior Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit who moves in our lives in these days. AMEN.

      Hi Ladies,   so im approximately 15 months into my journey. My doctor started me off on Femiston which really didnt suit me at all. She then put me on Elleste, which again we’re giving me lots of side effects......bloating, period type symptoms and the most awful mood swings and just for good measure sore swollen breasts and hot flashes!!   my sister said that I ought to ask my doctor  for HRT gel which I did and I have now been on since Christmas. It’s fab and I feel so settled on it, I still have the odd bad day but in general it’s much better and the period symptoms are still there but much less. my breasts are no longer swollen, nipples are tender and very sensitive to the touch. I’m now filling out a DD cup, and that seems to be where I’ll finish at. I’m buying lace bras now, instead of padded t shirt bras, though my sister brought me a push up bra and I have to say I love it.

      I posted doe a new position in the company I work for. I transitioned on the job, but have not legally changed my name yet. In the system it still has my legal name doe payroll,  etc.  I dont know if the management of my location has even said anything about my transition to the corporate office. when I submitted my posting,  all also included a letter from my psychologist stating that I present as a gender and use a name that is not consistent with what is listed on my legal identification. Something like that may work for you.

      Damn right. Don't give in. I figure if anyone has a problem with me, they can go to hell. Sometimes you have to let the ones you love but who don't love you back go.

      I had my first T injection last week, and today I started to notice a change in my voice! I am surprised by how quickly it is happening. My throat is all scratchy, which I read is a symptom of my vocal chords changing. I am super excited! Can’t wait hear what my true voice will be!

      I'd like that. And could use an adventure for a change.   Jackie, that's funny about the pants, since I tend to spend much of my studio time in a t-shirt and panties.   TA

      It's a thought. But I'd really have to relocate to Maine. Although the West coast is also appealing. I spent 3 years in San Francisco. TA

      I am going to drop some hints to make sure he isn't playing with my heart. I might ask him this week or next week to have sushi like he wanted. (And it's cheap >:D)    Also I will keep you all posted!

      It seems pretty clear he likes you. And you like him. I agree with A Dillon, y'all should just try going out! Just a casual coffee or lunch. Take it slow, you know?   Anyway, this is too cute! Please keep us posted 💕   ~Toni
