A Happy Monday...


Yeehah to everyone!..

Almost eleven in the evening over here...don't usually blog at night but some guy wants me to wait up for him before finally calling it a day. And speaking of day...the couple of days past went by cool....smooth..no hitch...just breezy quiet...grand..yeah...

Am' deliberating on whether I'd want to talk about scents...uhuh'..scents....like smell....Want to write up on what scents make me think of what...like the scent of an old book brings me back to when I was nine and I'd sit in a corner of the elementary library and just open to a page of "Secret Seven" by Enid Blyton and sniff...before reading...

But as I was saying...am deliberating on whether to settle on scents or...messages.."forwarded messages". Think I'll settle for the latter...

You see..forwarded messages are great.. ...gives me a good laugh..livens up my day..so I really enjoy it...Plus..I love that people have me in mind when they send one to me....There are however a few I should say are in dire bad taste...

One particular irksome message was something I received this morning. I opened up and right before me was a graphic picture of a man severely bruised, dripping in blood and hanging from a cross. Below the picture was a message exhorting how God loves me, and that in order for me to proooove the extent of my love for Him ( God) I was to make sure to send the message to about ten people... plus back to the one who sent it to me...

I..will do no such thing!!!!

For one, how could this person who sent me this forwarded message assume that I am a Christian?...Okay...so she knows me....but she doesn't know me deep enough to know the faith I hold...

Second...how could this person assume that I would feel piety for and reverence for a graphic violent picture of a person dangling on a cross who obviously was impersonating JC..very badly! The sender didn't even consider that I could take offense by it...

Third...am I idiotic enough to blindly prove my sublime affection for God by forwarding the message to others?...really....

None of these thoughts were in her mind when this person sent me the mail. She didn't mean harm..... but still I can't believe it was just casually taken that I hold the same religious outlook she does....... that I would feel the same sense of piety she does.....

Well..I don't...not that way...

The picture was in bad taste....the grammar totally turdy...and the message..shallow..trite and nonsense......shocking.

There...said it....I feel like bad Luxie for blurting here...I'm not angry..nor upset..just sighing deeply....coz' me knows God loves me...and that... the chain message was plain disrespect to God...to Christianity..and an insult to my intellect.

By the way......have a great happy Monday!!

( oh' and ps...I watched "The Secret" this morning!...Wonderful..will need to blog about that soon!!!"

i never forward them. usually they're just sentimental and schaltzy.

I reckoned that someone would eventually use the crucifiction as the source of a chain letter. Were I a religious Christian, I would be highly insulted.
