"Peace be with you."
I never used to like that part, but now it's ok.

Oh the things we do when we feel a bit lost and helpless!
Beats drinking and overeating I suppose.
My mom asked me to go to church yesterday; and I obliged. I've realized it's time to stop fighting her so much and just check it out and see, maybe, just maybe, she might have a valid point.
This is the program for yesterday's church service at the church I used to go to; the one I grew up in. My parents still go, and it's always been more for the social and support aspect than religious, and hey, it's by the beach in Laguna, and it's a United Church/Congregational, so ... let's say, pretty casual and extremely open-minded.
And one of my good friends from high school now is a regular member.
They gave me a study bible.
I won't go into what I do or don't believe, but... I've not gone to church in ages, except for Christmas and right after my aunt died.
I think the Bible is a very interesting literary work.
I used to love Sunday school because of all the stories and art projects. I still am fascinated by the stories of the Bible.

The papers underneath all that at the bottom?
A practice LSAT test.
Just curious.
For now.

But methinks some BIG changes are coming. And I certainly hope they're good ones!


  1. Funnily enough, we had a huge discussion about the 'peace be with you' part the other day at work. Some people really don't like it. I never thought about it before.

  2. Sorry you're feeling that way. Been there done that too many times. *hugs*

  3. When I was fourteen I went to my friend's (Catholic) grade school graduation, which was combined with a Mass. Afterward, I could not for the life of me figure out why everyone kept asking for "piece of paper". It took me a few years before I realized why they all looked at me like I was crazy when I replied "I don't have any". *eep*

  4. Thanks for the comments :)

    Vicki - "piece of paper" = "peace be with you"?
    LOL... is that like "''scuse me, while I kiss this guy"?

    I am SO GLAD my parents are not Catholic!!
    (erm, no offense to anyone who is ;)
