5 thin wednesday

[via]

oh yes, it's that time of year again. when your dear oline gives up what she most loves in the world for the love of God. (and there is a whole mess of bastardized theology in that sentence so do not take me at my words.) and so, dear God, because caffeine is not an option, i give you shopping. as in everything but groceries and cupcakes. because while a girl can live without clothes... hell, she could probably live without groceries... surely the Lord God above knows the cupcakes, they cannot be denied.

I told Mike that I was giving up him. LOL. See, this is what I love about being Methodist--we don't give up crap. We keep it all. God loves us and our love of stuff.

(i do have to clarify that i have not given up shopping to earn the love of God. it's just a way of reflecting on the easter season. God loves us and we don't have to earn that. sermon over.)

and don't give up mike! you share a home with built-in bookshelves. that's true love.

A truly kind God would never deny a girl her cupcakes.
