I have a personal question to ask any readers who consider themselves Christian.
What are your thoughts on people saying things like "for Christ's sake" or "Jesus - that's great"....yada, yada?
Personally, it makes me cringe. But I was reading something and the Christian person writing it used "Jesus Christ" as a means of communicating her dismay with a situation. And that just made me wonder what other's opinions were. I'm not thinking my way is right, or anyone else's wrong - just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this.....oh, and should you have one, I would also be interested to know what Christian religion you follow.
So, we already know I don't say that, and my background is that I was raised Anglican (where I was baptized as a baby), and I was also baptized again as an adult in a Pentecostal Church. My heart is with the Anglican Church though, I like the ceremony of it all (although I really do think baptism as an adult makes more sense).
In the house where I was raised, saying "for Christ's sake" and the likes wasn't discouraged at all. It wasn't until I was a young adult and met (and lived with) a hugely devout born again-type family that I even noticed I said it. And that was because the mom asked me to stop, because it offended her.
I find religion fascinating, because it is such an intensely personal thing that every single person makes it their own.
On a lighter note - we took husband for breakfast for father's day. Ordered fruit instead of those lovely tatter tots. How's that for commitment to an eating plan?? Tonight for dinner is his choice: cedar plank salmon. Daughter & I will be having chicken sausage!! HAHAHA
Have a healthy day bloggers!!
