For The Love of God!

This is gonna be a little touchy for some people, but it's something that gets under my skin and ya know opinions are like assholes, we all got I'm gonna share opinion, not my asshole...thanks.

Several years ago, I knew a lady who had written a book about her struggles in life and how her faith in God helped her through them. Normally, you wouldn't catch me dead with this sorta book (afraid I'd might burn in hell with the things I'd be thinking as reading it), but the book was given to me as a gift from the author so I figured I'd at least be nice enough to read it.

In one of the chapters she talked about how broke she was. She had less than $2 to her name. She needed to buy formula for her baby (I thought "you know that's what God gave you them udders for" but whatevs) and on top of that she would have to tythe 10% that morning in church. She said she had actually struggled with what to do, tythe or buy her baby food. She tythed the money she had and said she felt it would be God's will to make sure he baby was fed.


I knew I did NOT just read that. Oh yes, yes I had. My eyeballs damn near fell outta my head, but I had totally just read that. God don't need your money! You're baby needs FOOD! Holy shit! Anyhow, she goes on further to say that when she got home her mother had brought her some groceries including food for the baby. To her, that was God providing for her. Uh, no. That was your mother providing for you, because she is a mother and that's what mother's do! They provide for their kids!!!

I could go on and on about organized religion....the guilt that's put on you and the hipocracy of most everyone involved, but I don't feel like shit talkin'. Amazing, I know. I think we all make our own future and our future is made by our decisions. God does not make your life go one way or another. Things are gonna happen that are completely out of our control, but how we handle those situations makes us who we are. Going to church everytime it's open does not make anybody any better than anyone else. Saying that God is your love and savior ain't gonna make a dern bit of difference at the end of your day. It's the decions you've made throughout your day. What's gonna happen is gonna happen. It's who YOU are that dictates your life. Not God.

I don't know what exactly I believe in. I have my thoughts and beliefs, but they're personal as I believe religious beliefs should be. I know I'm a realist and want proof of everything before I can say it's true or not. I do believe in a higher power, but I don't know what it is. I might be my own higher power or it might be a God. I dunno. What I do know is that since I stopped having such sour grapes about everything in my life, my life has changed.

The end. I'm tired of writing this and I feel like poo today and I've totally irritated on.....

I happen to agree whole heartedly with you on this. I use to be a morman and had all that bullshit shoved up my ass and down my throat....speaking of asses....why won't you share yours with me!!!??? lol j/k
I also agree with the remark about how we make our own paths in life by the decisions we make. the whole tithing thing....yea been there and done that. i guess if they believe it strongly enough...then good for them.

and feeding the baby....yea that's what those two huge things we get to lug around are for. duh!

Where I'm At

I have no internet access at work and it's killin' me. It's nuts how hooked on that shit I am! I'm used to havin' Facebook open all day.....chattin' with friends, lookin' at all the stupid shit mas. One day, I'm gonna go missin' and my new co-workers are gonna find me huddled in a corner rockin' back and forth droolin' on myself mumblin' somethin' about Facebook destroyin' my life. I hope they just put me outta my misery right then and there.......

Unfortunately, my blog's gonna take the biggest hit. I've always blogged from from work. It was nice and quiet and I could THINK which is somethin' that's dang near impossible to do at home. This whole havin' a husband and kids thing doesn't really afford me the time or the quiet I need to write.

Today though I decided I don't really care about all those hours of Facebook updates. They were amusing at work, but once I'm at home, ehhh...…

Speakin' of Idiocy

When I was 14, a friend told me they had taken the word gullible out of the dictionary. I asked "why?"..... she said "You're so gulllible"...I said "yeah, why did they take the word out of the dictionary?" Again, she said "You're so gullible." ........"fine, I'm why the hell'd they take the damn word outta the diction....."
Then it hit me. I got it. I'd never felt more like an idiot than I did at that very moment.
I'd like to think of myself as a pretty smart chick....maybe not in the book sense, but at least in COMMONsense. However.....I took things to a whole new level of idiocy that day....and I ain't proud to say it, but I FAR surpassed that today...and despite the fact that I haven't blogged in MONTHS, I felt the need to share just what a gullible idiot I can be.
.....and so it goes.....
Today on my lunch break I picked up a Creative Loafing. I'm just readin'…
