“Like, what’s with all the fellowship bullshit at Mass?”

"You don't feel welcome? Why bother going then? I don't go to Mass with expectations of being the center of attention and accolades for just showing up. I don't expect to have some special welcoming committee glad handing me when I walk in. I don't need to be hugged or have my hand held throughout the Lord's Prayer. I don't want to have to stop and chat after Mass while I'm trying to make my thanksgiving. I'm not there to party."I have the hugest crush on Mr. Nelson. … [Read more...]

on relationship labels…

... or pet names, whatever you call them. My boyfriend this, my husband that. So I was out with my lover. My fiancee and I. blah blah blah. People have names. Repeatedly referring to someone with something other than their legal name makes me think of dingoes. Yes dingoes. … [Read more...]

generous readers…

... in the six years I have been blogging you all have never failed me. When I needed advice or couldn't find the patron saint against calories to invoke his intercession before eating an entire box of doughnuts, you were there. When I was single and seeking you sent me emails of your cousins, son, nephews and that crazy guy you work with who makes obscure sci-fi movie references. Bless you all. When I needed to con my way into the Vatican Blog Meeting you wrote to the event organizer on my … [Read more...]

Never doubt God has a sense of humor. I know for a fact He does …

... Every time I pray for patience He answers my requests by putting me in contact with people who are constantly testing it. These assaults and irritations provide endless opportunities to practice my patience until the day I finally get it right. You can see why I stopped praying for a man ages ago. Good Lord! … [Read more...]

default dating…

... for the most part I am happily single. I enjoy time with my family and friends and not dating keeps things remarkably uncomplicated and free of the dramatic histrionics typically associated with dating. When I really put my mind to it I can convince myself that introducing a male love interest into my social circle would upset the delicate balance of my universe. Bluntly, I am set in my ways. Damn, I sound old. Naturally, my main focus has always been my son. I have to think of both our … [Read more...]

on senility…

... I really enjoy blogging. Even when I had that scare once; the realization that I will ultimately be judged for everything I say and write. Yikes. Now there's a sobering thought. I can only apologize for my words and remove regrettable posts so often before the lesson sinks in. The lesson; there are certain community standards that one must adhere to. I used to think being an individual and 'free thinker' meant I could say whatever I want regardless of who may be hurt. It was my opinion and I … [Read more...]

prayer requests…

... physical illnesses are such a nasty thing. You can be angry you are sick but really, who can you be mad at? It's not like it's a wrong that has been inflicted on you by some one else. Illness just happens. No one is to blame. A lot of times, with diseases, you are also left completely dependent on other people. This can be especially difficult if you are used to being completely self sufficient. I think this is why Christians handle disease better than atheists. Christians never really … [Read more...]
