Holding Hands

Like a sea otter, gGod likes to hold hands.

A Thrift Store friend told me that when she had major surgery, she took comfort in Bible passages that mention gGod holding your hand.
I looked them up, and I really like this one from Psalm 139:

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
    if I settle on the far side of the sea, 
 even there your hand will guide me,
    your right hand will hold me fast. 

Another Thrifter (happify) sent me this article from a famous now-former fundie, whose experience talking to people on Twitter was part of her deconversion:

Through meeting and talking with people who totally disagreed with her, she went from holding signs that said, "GOD HATES FAGS" to asking, "Do you really want to ask God to hurt people?"

And the answer was, "When I’m not scared of the answer, I know the answer is no.” 

I thought I might try Twitter again. 
Honestly, much as I love blogging, it's lonely over here. I used to engage with more than a dozen active bloggers, now it's two or three...
I don't see myself not blogging though---where else can I post the FULL results of five hours of searching a fuzzy image in the apartment of Starsky or Hutch?

I've only come to it lately, and I'm extremely selective about who I follow. And rarely post myself... but. Well.

Read that article, being afraid of the answer apllies to many. many situations.

As for twitter, I am also thinking of it, so let's keep in touch and see if we maybe want to take the leap together...mine would be partly for promotional purposes. As an introvert, the business of deliberately building a persona creeps me out (Of course).
