This Is The Stuff

I’ve been having a lot of God guilt lately with the biggest guilty feeling being that I have been to church in months.  Not to mention that I’ve had all sorts of Catholic guilt because I didn’t give anything up for Lent.

I’m not making excuses for my lack of spiritual commitment lately, but sometimes I feel like I’m treading water in a sea of chaos which is my life of raising three kids.  I know if I called onto God and reached out my hand to Him, He will lift me up.

Maybe I should send up a flare via prayer?  Perhaps then He’ll toss me a life preserver and pull me back into church.

    God is not keeping score. Whatever you believe God to be will always be there. God did not put us here to feel guilty about something man-made, like religion. Save guilt for real sins. Living your life as best you can in accordance to your belief system is what matters most.

    Amen. I know exactly what you mean, and I had four kids to raise, but now they have kids to raise and I’m their sounding board I guess. lol Cute song. Totally well worth the listen. Hey, can I borrow one of those flares? lol Have a great day & thanks for playing along with us. Hope to see you next week too! Bring a friend.

    Oh the guilt! can you believe we haven’t even baptized #3 yet! the child is 3 years old already! Dumb Dad blames me. I blame him. We are blamers. And clearly very, very bad. Good luck getting back on track!

    Life sure does get in the way of all our plans – doesn’t it? Personally I do not believe there is any purpose to God guilt. If there is an infinite being, he (or she) gets what life is all about – if you thoughts & actions are good, that is so much better than doing the time in the pew

    Oh this is another favorite of mine. It’s so real!

    Sometimes I drop to my knees in tears and prayer just for fortitude to make it through dinner and brushing teeth and stories and whining and etc and sitting down.

    Yes. This is the stuff.

    I love it!
