Bad Theology from Facebook

wp_20170104_14_18_20_proThis week’s entry in our Bad Theology series comes from one of our dedicated readers.

After the deadly shooting in Florida recently, one of his Facebook friends posted this:

We feel very fortunate to have driven to Palm Aire rather than fly. Our check in date was Jan. 6. We might have flown into Ft. Lauderdale!!! Praise God for His guidance and care for us. Continue reading “Bad Theology from Facebook”

Jesus Loves Himself a Hot Mess

Straight from our ‘I Can’t Make This Stuff Up’ files, I bring you:
jesus-loves-this-hot-messJESUS LOVES THIS HOT MESS SHORT SLEEVE T-SHIRT *CHOOSE YOUR SHIRT COLOR (PLEASE ALLOW 3-5 BUSINESS DAYS. EXPEDITED SHIPPING N/A)

This may seem like an odd entry for our Bad Theology collection, but you’ll just have to trust me. This little number annoys the crap out of me. Not only as a Christian, but as a female. Continue reading “Jesus Loves Himself a Hot Mess”

IT Support: I Bow Before You

White dog next to person with laptopSo I’ve been doing some cleaning around the ol’ blog – not sure if you noticed? New theme, upgraded account, no ads (you’re welcome), clearing out some dead links. Just kind of sprucing things up a bit.

Not to brag – well, maybe I’m bragging a little – but I  wasn’t at all worried about making these said changes. It’s not that I’m a computer whiz, exactly.

Oh heck, let’s be honest: I’m more whizzy than your average suburban housewife.

All this is to say that on my second day of working on the blog, the new theme and upgraded no-ad account in place, I started my first post of the new year and wound up with a problem I couldn’t fix.

And I wound up calling support. *sob*

Here’s what happened…  Continue reading “IT Support: I Bow Before You”

TBT: Truly Bad Theology

wp_20170104_14_18_20_proThere’s something I haven’t been entirely up front about on this blog. I haven’t hidden it, exactly, but I haven’t proclaimed it from the mountaintop either.

What is it, you ask? Well, if you must know, it’s that I belong to a church, buy into the whole faith thing, and got the t-shirt. (Really. Our church has t-shirts.)

Now, don’t worry, I’m not turning this blog into a religious venue. But I thought I should mention where my allegiance lies before I go much further. Continue reading “TBT: Truly Bad Theology”

Do You Keep Christmas Well?

charles_dickens-a_christmas_carol-cloth-first_edition_1843I reread A Christmas Carol recently, because it’s a thing I do every year and it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t.

(Not to be pushy, but if you’ve never read it, DO SO NOW! Here’s an online version if you don’t own a copy. I recommend you read it slowly, to get all of that great Dickens’ humor.)

Anyway, yesterday as I was listening to the radio, I heard the DJ call his brother a Scrooge because he was complaining about the nonstop Christmas music. The DJ was wrong on two counts: Continue reading “Do You Keep Christmas Well?”

The Hidden Lives of Mr. & Mrs. Claus

santaOrdinarily I’m not one to namedrop, but the fact is, I know Mr. and Mrs. Claus personally.
No, really!

Fact is, I work with them. They’ve been working at our school since last August. Continue reading “The Hidden Lives of Mr. & Mrs. Claus”

Santa’s Camping Trip

Okay gang, I have one more house to show you for our holiday decoration tour.

This beauty was found close to my sister’s house over in Glendale – down a quiet little street with hardly had any traffic. I had to take two photos of their display, so you’d see it in all its amazing glory: Continue reading “Santa’s Camping Trip”

Holiday Traditions

“Let’s do our Family Shopping Trip this weekend,” Son says.
“But no one needs to buy anything,” I point out. “We do everything online.”
“But it’s Tradition!”

You gotta watch out for the ol’ Tradition trap. It’ll get ya every time. Continue reading “Holiday Traditions”
