Forgive me Father!

They had to call in for back- ups. Someone must have told them I was coming. An unknown visiting priest from about an hour away was the one I chose to burden with my moral deficiencies (randomly and from a distance)- anonymity sounded appealing when faced with the thought of the offenses I would be sharing.

While waiting for my turn, my list of transgressions was growing...

I'm sorry for the unkind thoughts of the creepy man directly in front of me. The fumes from his cheap cologne bath were giving me a headache and I had no control.

I'm sorry for being distracted by the woman in the front of the Church that I'm sure I went to grade school with.

I'm sorry for being so superficial and wondering what the woman next to me was thinking by wearing that.

I'm sorry for my impatience while waiting in line- I clearly have a knack for picking the line that takes the longest just like I do in the grocery store.

Finally, my turn... imagine my expression when the priest looks like this...



...I'm sorry for the impure and completely inappropriate thoughts, but this guy had Thornbirds written all over him!

OOOOhh don't know what I love more- the Thornbirds or that Northern Exposure dude. I'm always afraid the priests have super-powers and they know what I'm thinking.

lmao at Thornbirds!! i only know of that movie thanks to my mom...

the ONE time i went to confession was when i was making this Reconciliation...and our church did not have the private confession rooms. so we had to sit in a chair directly in front of the priest. All i said is that i was mean to my sister. I was so scared! lol!

I had a pastor recently that looked like Patrick Dempsey. Oh my. I know how you feel.

Oh, my! I so wanted to blog about the smoking hot young youth minister at my church. I'm afraid my husband will want to read my blog and know I don't pay attention to sermon anymore. :)

Can I apologize while I'm manhandling him? Something like, forgive me father, while I am sinning?
