Thoughts & Prayers

I've always been a bit put off when people cast a quizzical look in my direction when I offer prayers. No, I'm not a church-goer, but if I'm not mistaken, prayers aren't exclusive to Christ. I know a lot about this ... and not just because I opened a new Google Chrome tab and went to Wikipedia to make sure. I've always thought of prayer as a meditation, even when I was forced to do it as a child in church. You know, communication to the higher power, that sort of thing. As I got older, that translated into a vibe or a happy feeling or thought you could send toward someone else. But now, apparently, you can only pray, or use the word pray if you go to church. I've actually started saying "thoughts" or "wishes" so I don't have to justify myself to anyone. The bottom line of my argument is ... if someone is wishing you well in a time of need ... why the hell do you care what they call it?! As long as it is positive and in good spirit, it should be gladly received.

It is possible to be spiritual without being religious. Now for a few pictures that describe the week I'm having ...

Thanks SenorGif, for helping me properly describe my current misery. 


  1. Amen...I mean should I now explain that amen.

  2. Amen! ... the perfect response. And no explanation required. :)
