Blog of the Grateful Bear

ramblings of a freelance panentheist {"all things are in God, and God is in all things"} . . . musings on Emergent spirituality, powerlifting, LGBTQueer issues, contemplative prayer, mysticism, cats, music, healing, and more. I like my coffee and my existentialism dark-roasted.

I'm an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor), in private practice in Marietta, Georgia. My writings on queer spirituality have been published in Whosoever and several other magazines. I live in a house-in-the-woods (Bear's Hermitage) in Marietta with Leonidas (Lenny) and Guy, Mighty Warrior Cats, and way too many books.

Update on Dad: Home from the Hospital at Last

My Dad, Lloyd Grizzle, came home from the hospital on Easter Sunday. He has been in six different hospitals and one rehab center since his medical odyssey began last July, and he has only been home for one short week during all that time. He was incredibly happy to be home at last! His little dog Muffy Joy (shown below) was happy to see him too.

The pictures below were taken in the sunroom of my parents' home in Jasper, Georgia, overlooking the North Georgia mountains.

Dad is still not able to walk, and he will have regular visits each week from his home health care nurse and physical therapist. Please continue to keep him in your prayers, as well as my Mother, who is now his full-time caregiver.
