A Rant and a fun cartoon

I do not wear my Christian faith on my sleeves. I did many years ago and was thoroughly obnoxious. But that was the 70s and it was more accepted to be high on Jesus than on Marijuana. I had too many kids to do the latter. Maybe I am not a "good" Christian now, but watching the news last night got me riled up. On arriving back on US soil, eight of the ten missionaries that were being held in Haiti on possible child trafficking charges, were thanking God for keeping them safe and freeing them. As I was listening to their diatribe about how good God is, I said out loud, "instead of thanking God, maybe you should ask God's forgiveness for getting yourself into this mess." Why do we expect God to save us if I we are stupid enough to stand in the middle of the highway with cars whizzing by, trusting God to pluck us out of traffic? Did not God give me common sense and expects me to use it? I think so. In fact there is a verse in Scriptures, Deuteronomy 6:16, which says "You shall not put the Lord Your God to the test...". Now I am probably misapplying the verse, but it still is a good guideline. So there. I have spoken my mind.

Now to get my sense of humor back. I found this on a German blog and couldn't help myself. The blogger's headline was "No words needed."

Knit on merrily!
