God wants you to go to church Easter Sunday

I get to wear a pretty dress and believe in the Easter bunny
Made of Christ’s chocolate and paid for my sins

No telling just how far this thing will go

Not so sure ; I want to know
reason is over rated, as is logic and common sense-i much prefer the passions of a crazy old woman, cats and dogs and jungle foliage- tropic rain-and a defined sense of who brings the stars up at night and the sun up in the morning---

I've been in church (one kind or another) for most of my life. Man I've been inundated by them at times, but I might be a better (if somewhat exasperated) man for it...

I believe that the things that are happening to me are gifted by the unseen- the great mystery- my creator

Yarn and sun catchers
Mobiles of costume jewelry


The handbag as a statement
Matching shoes
Lunch at the golf course

It is from the days of the the Kennedy family
Station wagons full of children
Bazooka joe and Coca-Cola

Mothers driving us to the next game

god told me to go into the woods
hug a tree
i was concerned that all the people out of work
would go there too
but they had no imagination
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading

The only thing I am sure of is I don't want to get sick.
The only thing I want to know is when it is safe to come out of quarantine. Life Disrupted as I try to cope with the quarantine...I am sure not giving much thought to anything Tя☭mp says.
I am not coming out of sheltering until my doctor says it is okay.

I wonder if that Korean church has a gigantic neon cross on the roof that can be seen from space. my mind is like a broken radio ...hello darkness my old friend, the neon God they made, come in she said I will give you shelter from...

Never to church when I was a child my dad was an atheist. When I was an adult I joined a Quaker meeting. I think that has made me a better man, and less exasperated.

I used to have fights about Christ when I was a kid, someone would call me Christ killer and I would say, oh yeah I am going to kill him again when he returns, oh wait, it's Buddha I got to kill. Jesus is just alright with me, I like to eat his ears. :lol:
studio eight a shelter from the storm for me, thanks, Doreen.

Jesus Christ died for nothin I suppose.
Little pitchers have big ears,
Don't stop to count the years,
Sweet songs never last too long on broken radios.

the woods is my church
and I am devout
If you do not change your direction
you may end up where you are heading
