Ask and you shall receive...

Last night I was prying for some guidance on how to come out to the Youth Group at Holy Cross, and for God to give me a sign or at least some guidance on this. So this morning in Sunday School, some how we got to talking about homosexual people and how some have to lead "double life's" due to various reasons. Well the opportunity just presented its self as we talked about this and so at one point I said "I can vouch for that as a gay man my self".

Part of me could not believe those words had just come out of my mouth. Even as I am more and more out, I do not find it any easier now then when I first told my mom that I was gay. But out of my mouth those words came, and yes, I think it shocked the group a little, but one thing that I have always loved about that youth group is that they are very open and understanding. Some of them had suspected it, and I think others had no clue.

Part of me was very scared coming out to the youth group, but the other side of me is very relieved that I have done it now. One thing that we have always been able to do in that Sunday School class is openly share stuff and for that I am very thankful. I must say that I asked God for something and he showed me the sign that I asked for.

I'm so proud. Aw. This is kind of a touchy story, even with the religion in in for be not being religious.

I'm proud of you at the very least though!

Great Job, Bud
I know you've been thinking and worrying about this one for a while now. Isn't it amazing the way things happen when you pray? You did great, and I'll bet you feel hugely relieved now that that's in the open. I'm proud of you.

Love,
Mom
