When I became a Christian, I gave up some things.
I gave up my tarot card practice.
I gave up my Unitarian Universalist church.
I left behind the things that belonged in another lifetime. I cleaned house. I gave things away. I began to dismantle what was and look forward to what is.
And in each empty hole, God planted a seed. In each vacant place in my life, God filled me with his love. His gifts have been greater than anything I could have imagined.
