Come On! Is This April Fool's Day?...
Now Playing: Day 716-The Final Road To Survival
Wow! We are going on the fourth month of the year 2012 and honestly I can't even keep my days straight anymore. Hahahahaha! I thought today was Monday and asked my friend-Caregiver once we got up mid afternoon if he got the mail yet. Ummm...Its Sunday not Monday. OOPS! My days just blend together anymore same with it being April 1st when I was just getting used to it being March.
Since the weather has been nice the past few months we have seen an over abundance of what I like to call the "unpredictable, relentless folks."
Neighbors have been sharing their own stories of various escape routes while another neighbor actually put up a very long blind for their front door so the religious teams don't literally keep looking into their window to see if they are home. Hahahahaha! Others go into hiding then peek to see if the Bible team players have left their porch. Yes! this is crazy but starting to get annoying for everyone. This morning around 11am we had our own knock at the door. For crying out loud, not again! We just had two Mormon's this week, two Jehovah Witnesses last week and now they have come back again? I told my friend-Caregiver, "Don't open the door, this is nuts!" Of course once we got up around 3pm I opened the front door instead to find a proposal for houses on our street to be bought by a church around the corner.
ARE YOU SERIOUS?!!
Since when have you heard instead of churches helping those to stay or keep their homes are now trying to purchase or push them out? WOW! Just a shame how churches are becoming nothing more but outlandish businesses not caring for their members but instead about the almighty $$$$. Didn't I just blog about "Good VS Evil" the other day? Now we are all being put on high alert again hoping the not so warm and friendly church doesn't try to take property from those who have lived on the street for years. It was just three years ago the same church tried their darnedest to buy portions of residences backyards in order to put in more parking spots. They must had forgotten they already had enough spare land of their own to extend their parking lot. Once things had resolved and the church backed down it had already angered those who live the American dream by owning their home. Now three years later its all starting again but since the first attempted effort went way, way wrong they are now just "offering" to purchase homes.
Instead of the old kids song, "This is the church, this is the steeple, open the doors see all of the people" we now literally will see all of the people if a parking lot gets placed in every ones backyard. YIKES! Takes the words, "Sunbathing in the nude" to an entirely different level. Hahahaha!
So in between preaching visitors when least expected popping up on a weekly basis around the neighborhood we now have another church wanting to build parking lots outside our backyards. Some neighbors have told us the best way to counteract the behavior of religion gone bad is:
#1-HIDE! Don't come out until the coast is clear!
#2-Large blinds. If you get enough advanced warning pull the string and walk away!
#3-Come to your door naked. Hahahahha! I also had to laugh on that one!
#4-Ask for their address. This way you can let them know you will also be visiting them all days and hours of the week with your own Bible and religious beliefs.
#5-The Best! Speak in your own language. Just make it up as you go but make no sense. Laugh out loud!!!!!!! Could you imagine the facial expressions? I can only imagine! LOVE IT!
I have cleaned up letters, note cards, pamphlets, etc over the past few months that now I might just get some Gastroparesis Awareness Campaign gear together and educate them on true suffering. Amen.
I got a few funny church signs from fellow friends that are actually taken from various churches around the great USA. Maybe those who do what you aren't suppose to do which clearly says in the Bible need to read these as an example.
I belong to two churches. One after today I will no longer be attending seeing I don't agree with trying to buy or oust families from their homes. The other church I belong to is the same one I was baptized at although sadly it is a bit too far from my home. I believe those who want to pray in groups its wonderful to be part of a church family (minus trying to monopolize your parking lot) and you can always pray at home. God doesn't judge whether you worship inside or outside a building.
This Easter me and my friend-Caregiver wanted to attend Sunday church service but between my unique sleep schedule due to my illness and his work schedule it will be touch and go. I am hoping to find a local church that instead offers Saturday afternoon services. The rest of Easter will include me, Drano and the comforts of home. Hey, it happens and life happens. Change is sometimes inevitable but you have to take it one GP day at a time!
This concludes my Sunday online blog service. We don't take offertory but do welcome candy donations on your way out. APRIL FOOLS!Hee,hee,hee,hee,hee...
