Brokeback Mountain Blues

I wanted to see it, but I didn't want to see it. I'm talking about the "gay cowboy" movie called Brokeback Mountain (even though I read Jake Gyllenhaal, one of the two major actors - "Jack Twist," wants it to mean much more than that to its audience).

I have read your letter that you posted in 1999. I wanted to say that I love your honesty.

I have been there, and done that...
My heart struggles with much guilt at times.

However, knowing that another christian has done the same and turned away...knowing that I will not be judged by those who looked down their noses at people like me...

Well, I thank God for His grace.
And thank Him for your honesty.

Thank you for your life-giving encouragement. I hoped my honesty about AIDS could help others.

Scarlet Letter: A Christian With AIDS

We defeat the purpose of the devil when we refuse to quit, when we conquer by continuing, when we get back up and get going by the GRACE OF GOD. Once we do that, or 70 times seven times, we can help others along this spiritual journey to the Promised Land of the Kingdom of God, having been there, done that, eh?

Don't Give Up!

It's so sad, and such a waste (yes, cliches - but true nevertheless)that Heath Ledger is now dead at such a young age, leaving behind his child and former fiancee and those who knew and loved him and/or his acting abilities.
