Belated Stuff Friday

We left out camera cord in Cali, so these pics will have to do in a pinch

Religion = Good
This is Fred the Tree.

He's my own personal version of church. Until I can find a regular church I like enough to attend every week, Fred's providing serious inspiration. Great views, nice pine-y smell, the thrill of sort of hanging off a cliff. Fred definitely helps me see outside myself and appreciate the world. Which is kind of what religion is supposed to do. Right?

Inside of Fridge = Bad
This is our first batch of carne asada and salsa in Pittsburgh, and I apparently turned into a complete manic freak. Lucky Mateo was there to document my fat-armed version of Vanna White...

    I think you find spirituality more easily in nature than in SOME churches. Some of the people I talk to act as if people they consider "sinners" shouldn't be allowed in their churches. What's the deal? Aren't they the ones who need to be welcomed in with open arms? These are the kind of people who make a church look like a restricted social club. Sorry, I was just on this soapbox yesterday.

    I usually make my own salsa, both red and green.
    My upstate NY grandmother visited us in California (a long time ago) and was shocked. She'd thought Taco Bell was real Mexican food.

    You're so cute. If Mateo hadn't already named you "Plum," well, he'd just have to stop being such a slacker and hurry up and come up with it.

    My most worshipful experiences ever were in nature. One was on a whale watching trip. It still almost moves me to tears to think of it. The other was at an outdoor, impromptu Sunday morning service, with an elderly man and his guitar. He sang,

    When I pray, I will pray for you
    You need God's love, and His care
    When I pray, I will pray for you
    I will whisper your name in my prayers.

    When you pray, will you pray for me?
    I need God's love, and His care
    When you pray, will you pray for me?
    Will you whisper my name
    In your prayers?

    Never heard that song before or since, but that old guy, his guitar and those words, were as Holy as any cathedral. In my humble opinion. Hey, I might write a post about this some day. Thank you, most inspirational Plum :)

    Squirl- Oh, I wan't trying to crack down on all churches. I jsut haven't found the right one yet. I'm looking for a total lack of hypocrisy, and some actual non-judgemental folks. If you see anything like that from your soapbox perch, pleeeease let me know.

    Sierrabella- Got any good salsa recipes? Please, for the love of all that's holy, share, share, share! Thanks for visiting SP!

    Susie- Could you BE any sweeter? We'd all be better off if everyone included each other in our prayers. I'd love to hear more about this fellow,especially since you're such a splendid writer...which is an inspiration in itself!
