new beginnings

1 Oct

when i was a wee lass and busy being indoctrinated by mass religion, there was a youth group for teenage girls referred to simply as: young women’s. every year there is a presentation given for and by the young women called new beginnings. it’s a program designed to exemplify the 7 values of the young women’s theme. this theme i know by heart, even to this day. oh would you like to see it? kay.

We are daughters of our Heavenly Father, who loves us, and we love Him.
We will “stand as witnesses of God at all times and in all things, and in all places” as we strive to live
the Young Women values, which are:
Faith
Divine Nature
Individual Worth
Knowledge
Choice and Accountability
Good Works
Integrity and
Virtue.
We believe as we come to accept and act upon these values,
we will be prepared to strengthen home and family, make and keep sacred covenants,
receive the ordinances of the temple, and enjoy the blessings of exaltation.

each of those values have a color: white, blue, red, green, orange, yellow and purple. so all kinds of rainbow type items are made, distributed and cherished- some of which look like this:some might think this is also reminiscent of the infamous gay rainbow. and that- short and simple- is a little bit of what made me, me. oh and then there was this too:

i’m having a new beginning right now. and yeah, it’s gay. cause i moved back to a small city and for some reason i always feel a little more gay, certainly more exposed and it’s a transition i’m working my way through. so join me in cheers-ing all the gays that live in all the small towns, cause it’s a bit…isolating.
