DOES GOD GET SICK OF SUCK UPS?


Lately I've been so thankful for everything!

I find myself saying thanks to god for the smallest of things.

So much so that I feel like a total suck up.


"God, thanks for sending that flock of birds just now, I needed that".


"God, thanks for giving me a seat with a wonderful view while I work my second job performing mindless oopma-loompa-like work".


"God, thank you for letting me get the last banana Popsicle. You know how these greedy people in my house can be".


"God, thank you for making me slam on my breaks, when that firetruck almost wiped my daughter and I off the face of the earth. (Well that one was legitimate).


"God, thank you for keeping me from killing my husband." (I guess that's a big one too).


"God, thank you for the invention of toilet paper, because really, what would we do without it?"


It gets pretty ridiculous at times and the other day I thought to myself, "when does giving too much thanks become sucking up?" Is God up there screening his prayers because of me and people like me?

I can picture him saying " GEEZ ALREADY!" Or "Oh not this one again!" or "this one is really clogging up my voice mail!" "Peter, can we put this one on the DO NOT PRAY LIST?

Well, I guess I'll find out if ever I get up there, won't I?

That's a pretty funny idea. The "DO NOT PRAY" list is a great idea.

Seriously though, it's fantastic if you really do this. Most people take a flock of birds at the right time for granted. One time in 6th grade my teacher asked the class if we ever just stopped to thank God that we are alive (Christian school). I raised my hand and said yes, not realizing it was a rhetorical question. What, I did!

Oh I know what you mean about rhetorical questions!
When my husband asked me to marry him I should have taken that as a rhetorical question and tried hooking him up with one of my friends instead of saying the Y word!!! Is that mean? Oh well.

who knows? maybe he only gets to read random thank-you messages and rest are taken up by his right-wing man. So the more you thank him, probably means the better chance he'll actually read.

*shrug*

Pretty funny post. Love it.

This post reminds me of the SNL skit many years ago when Sally Fields (I think) was praying to God for an answer for absolutely everything... like whether to have tea or coffee. The Lord showed up in her kitchen, looking remarkably like Phil Hartman, and told her to chill out a little on the praying.

Funny post!

Yeah, you're probably right,
but oh how the carpal tunnel might kick into full swing!

That SNL skit sounds funny. I never saw it. Sally Fields? How long ago was that on? I was never allowed to stay awake that long, never mind allowed to watch SNL because of the content. Oh the blogs I have to write about the trauma I endured as a child.
Like for instance, growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness, not celebrating Christmas, and then having your sick & twisted parents drive you around town to "look at the pretty Christmas lights!" Then as soon as you turned 18 and moved out, they decided to start celebrating it!
The therapy bills are outrageous!

Yes it was Sally Fields and it might have been around the time on Forest Gump. Not 100% sure,though.
