From A Broken Line

I struggle sometimes with the old testament, specifically as it relates to women. I mean, the Hebrew law treats women as property….because they were. I think Bathseba gets a bad wrap as a vixen. I was taught in Sunday school that she was probably trying to get David’s attention. Recently, I learned that Bathseba was probably doing her ritual cleansing and my mind was blown. Then an opportunity to write fiction for my friend Jamie’s blog. So here is me, trying to work through it all.

From A Broken Line

I need to explain some things to
you. About the way things happened, about the choices I made and the ones that
were made for me. I need to explain about the boxes I’ve been put in and the
pieces of my story that don’t fit on a felt board. It isn’t as simple as all
that.

You can read the rest here.
