Being Single does not mean you can't be a Christian.....

Dear Good Christian Woman,

I am a tad confused by your behavior, okay maybe I am a tad sad. 


I know that I am not perfect, I know that I am a single mom, but what I don't know is where in the Bible it tells you to shun me?

I sit there and feel excluded, I don't belong in your conversations because obviously I just wouldn't understand - after all my thinking powers disappeared the day I was divorced. 

I see your stares from across the room, I am assuming my I have a a special marking on my forehead  that only you can see....it obviously lets you know my actions of the last 30 plus years.

I see how you dart across the church the moment you think the preacher (or any other male) might speak to me - after all you need to protect them from my evil doings.   

I heard the whispers/rumors about how I dress, I didn't know my sundress and flip flops were so inappropriate - then again I do live on a single income budget, so they are obviously not as nice as yours. 

What you don't know is I don't hate you, I don't even dislike you.  I would give anything to feel included - or at least be accepted as a Christian.....

I would like to challenge you ma'am to let your guard down, give me a chance. 

There is a possibility that even though I am divorced with two kids, with a full-time crazy job, and a college student - that I could still be a good person and a good mom.

    I will tell you my story sometime. Similar. Christins can be so cruel, because some think they are God. They're not. Just misguided fools. Bible speaks of them.
