Disgruntled on Easter
Omg!!!!!! I am pissed off. And not even about not being able to get a seat in church on Easter - well, that , too - but because I was almost finished typing this post, I tried to add another picture and the post disappeared. Excuse me...
DOGS!!! SHUT UP!!!!
I usually don't mind them screaming at the crackheads (allegedly) that just moved in across the hall but not today Satan, it's getting on my nerves. In fact, this whole day is getting on my nerves and I'm one of the main causes of it.
I KNEW IT WAS EASTER!!! I KNEW ALL THE HEATHENS WOULD SHOW UP and make ME feel like a heathen in the line to get in church because it was almost around the corner and they were the cause of it since this is their one time of year to attend. Of course the deacons came out with the announcement, "Hi guyyyyysss! We are at capacity so we are not letting anyone else innnnnnnn," and had the nerve to be super sweet about it.
You know, I'm really surprised that I kept my cool, although, I did give the lady in the line behind me the "do you even tithe to this church?" look and the lady with the 3 kids in front of me the "I know yall don't go here normally!" look. The pride I feel in myself for not smacking a lip or sucking a tooth shows my absolute growth over the years -- just a few heavy breath murmurs and an instant move in the direction of home when I realized I wasn't getting in. huhhhhhhhhhhhhh That was an exhale.
As I walked toward the grocery store (one of my favorite places in the world), I started to feel calmer. I had asked the Lord to wake me up this am - which he did - but I decided to press the snooze button 15 more times, causing me to leave out 12 minutes before church started. I knew better. On the walk of feeling betrayed out of seat, the Lord started speaking to me about the fact that some of these people are going to get an opportunity to grow closer to the Lord through the seat I [reluctantly] gave them. That thought sort of removed my angst and then my dad called and I was able to get my full complain on before he said something to get me laughing. I don't even remember what he said either but I floated on home with a bit of excitement to write my first blog entry today.
I think the moral of the story is: 1) I shouldn't have even tried to go KNOWING how the Easter church traffic is. I'm always a few minutes late and I don't why I thought it would be any different this year. 2) Pat on the back for immediately switching back in to excitement and for creating a new blog; and 3) I can just go to church again this week, next week and all the other weeks since I'm in there regularly. Still, it hurts cause I love going to church, but it's not the end of the world and if this is a person's only time of year to make it to church, well, good googly mook, take the seat and may the Lord bless and keep you.
