February is For Love

Tomorrow, I believe one more piece of Matter will take care of one more piece of Anti-Matter, in Washington’s evolution toward a state of understanding and love.  I believe the House will pass legislation, making legal same-sex marriages in Washington State, and our family will celebrate this victory over fear and manipulation with great joy.  As I said in a post a few years back, it will be my honour and pleasure to facilitate same-sex marriages…and the first one is on me, to celebrate our maturation.

I’m sorry there are those who could be led into believing any creator could loathe their creation, yet continue to create the same pattern over, and over, through human existence.  How many times do children educate their parents, as they’re brave enough to come out?  A beloved son or daughter is, hopefully, different than a monster made under your bed, inside your head.

In other states laws have been passed, granting the right for same sex couples to wed, and those states have not been sucked down to Hell, struck by lightning, or become awash in degradation.  Life clicks on.  Families grow, marry, grow more family, and pass on, surrounded by, guess what, loving family.  

Love one another as I have loved you. 

Treat others as you would have them treat you.

The love you take, is equal to the love you make.

Let’s pass this law and celebrate a state of love and legal commitment.  Let’s each vow to work on love, in our beautifully varied families and communities. 

‘Cos a love like that, you know it can’t be bad.

Well-written Lorraine!

Perfect! And didn't the Celts celebrate Feb. 2nd in the way we celebrate the 14th? The state should get out of the marriage business anyway. Do they register baptisms?

Ha...I believe you are right Stephanie! Why did the State get into the marriage business, anyway?
