GENEVIEVE

Genevieve is my spirituality. She is the one that believes that there is a God and that he loves and cares about us. She believes that he wants us to find happiness, contentment and peace in our lives. She is the one that is trying to untangle her faith in God, the Bible and his teaching with the hypocrisy that was used by “A’s” grandfather when he abused her. Her beliefs are strong and they go to the core.

Genevieve got her name from the movie musical Camelot with Vanessa Redgrave. First let me say that I am not Catholic, that no part of me is Catholic. “A” felt the divine closeness to god when Vanessa Redgrave sang the beginning of the song “the Simple Joys of Maidenhood:

Saint Genevieve, Saint Genevieve

It’s Guinevere, remember me?

Saint Genevieve, Saint Genevieve

I’m over here beneath this tree!

You know how faithful and devout I am

You must admit I’ve been a lamb.”
“A” was moved by this. This is how she wanted to feel about God all the time except parts of her did not agree. So Genevieve was born so that she could feel this way about God - that she could talk to him anyway, anytime, about anything, and he’d hear. Except her prayer went a little something like this:

“Oh God,  are you there?

It’s Genevieve, remember me?

Oh God, Oh God,

I’m over here hiding where no one can see!

You know how faithful and devout I am

You must admit I’ve been a lamb.

Can you see me?

Here I am, waiting to be rescued.”

So came the spiritual part and the tie to the name Genevieve.

Genevieve has no real particular form of dress or a need to look a certain way. She just needs to be modestly dress. She is mostly up when Edith or Sonja is up. She very seldom is up by herself. She needs the strength of others to be out. She like their shadows.
