    I'm learning about many goddesses (and gods) who embody that sentiment. It's a refreshing change to what I'm used to, speaking as an ex-Christian. But I'm not ready to fully embrace a new god and become emotionally attached to one. Old wounds aren't healed yet.

    No need to be attached to any god (or so the Buddha would say :blush:). I can understand the pain of being burned by organized, fundamentalist religion and that turning you off to any and all religion or spirituality. Take it at your own pace. Always around to chat with you if you ever want it. :blueheart:

    Odin Loves me! This I know
    The Havamal tells me so.
    Midgardians to Him belong.
    They are tough, but He is Strong

    Yes, Haví loves me.
    Yes, Haví loves me.
    Yes, Haví loves me.
    The Havamal tells me so.

    Odin Loves me this I know.
    As his wisdom always shows.
    Gathering warriors to His home.
    Saying: "einherjar shall be One"

    Odin loves me still today
    I'll follow Him on my way.
    Like a friend, Mead horn gives.
    Wisdom and love to all who live.

    Odin loves me. We who die.
    Hel's gates shall open wide.
    He who shows there is no sin
    If wisdom and love are guided in.

    Odin loves me! He shall stay.
    Always by my side, each day
    Thou hath scarified for me
    And now I'll always love for Thee.

    (one would thing that reveling in a gendered deity would be more than a little shallow)

    Billions do it all the time. Could just be human confirmation bias. Personally, I don't believe any deities have authentic genders. It's just how many people choose to relate to them.
