My Faith Tank Is Empty

My walk felt good today and I stopped for a minute to chat with a neighbor who was raking her yard. She is a determined lawn-keeper and every leaf that falls is her enemy. We got around to talking about the election. She's not happy but has faith that the Lord will change DT's heart. Also, she feels certain that prayer will keep us from harm, that Jesus will return before he allows evil to happen.
"You gotta think like me," she said.

My leaves fall and stay where they may unless I rake them up to use as garden mulch. I do not pray and have no faith that there is a god who will change anyone's heart.
As for the return of Jesus- well, that didn't really work out so well the first time and I doubt it would do much good now either.

I do believe I will go hang my clothes on the line.

And that's about as far as it goes.


  1. The woman is delusional...You are a realist and with you, I agree...

  2. "didn't really work out so well the first time"... god! I needed a laugh this morning.

  3. yah, cause prayer worked so well for the 10 million gassed and burned during the Holocaust. Nothing will change that man's heart.

  4. Or this could happen.
    Exodus 9:12
    But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart and he would not listen to Moses and Aaron, just as the LORD had said to Moses.

  5. Bible thumpers drive me nuts! What a cop out line of thinking.

  6. Yeah, it's a cop out. Fingers in ears, lalalalalala. Thinking like her ain't the answer for you!


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
