Day 29 By the Number 3 #OctPoWriMo 2018

*Many times I have said that I am in my third life. Numerology says my number is 5 and that the war cry of the Life Path 5 is “Freedom! So… I know nothing about numerology but I will use the words life path, freedom and the number 3 as prompts.

————————-

Birth-first marriage
First marriage-divorce
Divorce-remarriage

Or

Birth Religion-remarriage questioning
Question and changing beliefs
No religion–skeptic

————————–

1) I was born into fundamentalism
Unquestioning acceptance and belief
Things I didn’t like but well–
That’s just the way it was

2) Left home to marry
Hindsight it shouldn’t have been
Two children and a relaxation of rules
A realization my parents weren’t saints
Yet still bound by childhood religion

Until….

3) Divorce entered my life
Then a new love and
A threat of being disowned
A new church (not accepted by birth parents)
Lots of happiness mingled with grief
Grieving the loss of close family ties
Grief that is diminishing still
And questions leading to
Skepticism and humanism
Not Christian–FREEDOM!
