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 Now, with Surgery in December

Dad came home last week, after spending 30 days doing physical therapy at a rehab center in Woodstock, GA. The surgery he needs, to repair a large hernia on the scar on his abdomen (from his previous pancreas surgery) and to rebuild part of his abdominal wall, has been scheduled for December 17th. He will be entering Emory University Hospital on December 14th in preparation for the surgery. He will probably be in the hospital for about 2 weeks after the surgery.

Many thanks to all of you who continue to keep Dad and my family in your prayers.
