30 Days of Truth


Day 19. What do you think of religion? Or politics?

I am a muslim. That’s a bit strange for an American, I know, but all my life I’ve been on a spiritual journey and last year it landed me smack in the middle of Islam. It’s not what I would have chosen for myself, but I knew I had found “the straight path” when I first entered the mosque on a field trip. I had been reading the Qur’an and When I was in the mosque I have never felt such peace. I knew I had found where I was supposed to be.

As for my political views, I’m progressive but independent. I side mostly with the Democrats in the USA but just as often think they are crazy. I am definitely not of the Tea Part persuasion, and do at times support the GOP.

And that’s the truth for today.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.
