I am a WAST - White Anglo-Saxon Texan. It that enough of an introduction?
How about, "Thanks for having a web site that explains the thoughts that I never could put into words."? Well, I have said things like, "You want me to "pray the Lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake..."? Good grief! What thoughts to put into the head of a child wanting to sleep peacefully!
Speaking of sleeping, who thought that it would be a GOOD thing to tell a child that their parent is asleep when Daddy really died and is lying there in a coffin? Would everyone please "wake up" and think about what they are SAYING?
I have said for years that I didn't really believe in my Parents' and Grandparents' God, but if I did believe in one, I would believe in one who was full of love and compassion and was all forgiving. Not a God that rained down death, pestilence, plagues, and boils, not to mention the unforgiving God who threatens to send humans to hell for eternity. Eternity! That is for ever AND EVER!
I like lumping God with Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, Superman, and the Great Pumpkin.
Happy Halloween, Everyone! ^..^
