I died, last month. Wow what an ordeal, I thought I would be talking to St. Peter! But... I entered a great hall and Vishnu the great Hindu deities sat on a giant throne, (it was actually a toilet) he beamed a blueish grin. (He had been sucking a blow-pop.)
Vishnu said: "You have been a bad bad monkey. Now I pronounce your new incarnation to be that of a frog."
"Ribbit!" was the only word I could muster, so many other words were in my head, but all I could say was "Ribbit!"

I personally have not played this game, but it seems of interesting note.
Review from the Blog- "Zombiebacon":
Aware that much of the world’s violence comes from the source of eternal love, Radford realised that mocking various images of God and their faithful adherents would “make more social commentary” and “pierce the pretensions of extremist religious zealotry with humor.”
That it does wonderfully, passing many hours in the entertaining pursuit of monotheism.
Someone should really distribute this game to all the world’s spiritual leaders so they can settle their differences without destroying us in the process.

Turtle sat curled up in his shell, shivering. He knew it wasn't supposed to be 32 degrees in Lakeland Florida. He could not remember it ever being this cold.
He thought to himself, "Man, any way to get it warmer."
He prayed to God, "Please LORD I am only a little turtle but make it so I wont shiver anymore!"
The LORD answered his prayers: a huge thunderbolt electrified the air and hit the shell, alighting it on fire.
Turtle was kindled by the flame and ran right out of his shell... shivering in the cold January Florida air.
(Moral: Be careful what you pray for, and never pray for patience).
Parades, trees, beads, segregated balls, and moon-pies are signposts of Southern Culture. Money or lack of money are not what opens the key to city hall in the South, family roots and history are the steps in the hierarchy platforms and stages. "The Order of Myths"stirred a bitter feeling.

Bernadette: All Jane Austen, all the time. It's the perfect antidote.
Prudie Drummond: To what?
Bernadette: To life.I have a confession, when the Lakeland Public Library, had us read Jane Austin my prejudices against 19th century writers took over and the chauvinist living inside of me said: "Forget it, I am not into this priggish Victorian dribble!" But, after watching the movie "Jane Austin Book Club" I feel I was too boarish to judge so quickly. The love for reading books and the connections made between readers is absolutely neccessary in todays fast-forward tempral world. THe movie piqued my interest and I pray that I will have another go at Jane Austin.

The Color of Family by Patricia Jones:
Color aint got nothing to do with it, it is humanity that matters. What happens when someone close to you dies? Does their ghost create a white elephant in the room? What are the bonds that hold a family together? What are the things that cut these bonds? The cover of the book would keep from picking it up, as it looks too "girly"; but once I started reading it, it became treasured.

The Baylor family grew up amongst the numerous cedar trees. The country's pencils at one time were made around Cedar Key. Her uncle owned the famous bar C&M. The bar was a shelter during Cedar Key's great Hurricane Easy of 1950. A hurricane that just would not leave, it stuck around like a bad cold.

Trudging through the saw palmetto we made our way to the end of the sunny Cedar Key airstrip. The strip was small, lined by sharks, Palm trees, and barking neighborhood Chihuahuas. A visiting pilot needed to be careful in order that their plane did not plunk itself into the mucky mud along the Florida Coastline.

"All sabre-tooth mammals lived between 33.7 million and 9,000 years ago, but the evolutionary lines that led to the various sabre-tooth genera started to diverge much earlier."
The Saber Tooth tiger head sat in the middle of the Denver Museum of Natural History. An assortment of coins, dollars and miscellaneous debris were held in a glass cylinder under the head. The head roared when one dropped money through the smiling canines. Kids gathered wanting hear the sound of an extinct tiger.

"The only way to wake up from complacency is a confrontation."
Captain American-Leisure sits in front of a computer.
Polycarp: "Hey Fred, why you sitting there? Punk!"
Fred: "I've been working! So, bugger off!"
Polycarp: True that, do what you want... But he's been missing you!
Fred: You mean my Abba, my LORD?

An adversary shall surround the land and bring down your defenses from you, and strongholds shall be plundered. Amos 3:11
I ask myself:
What barrier needs to be plow down in order to be part of instead of separated from?
Jesus Christ is a foundation more secure than any building, than any lifestyle, than any immediate feeling of pleasure. I ask that he continue to loosen the things that keep me from the One LOVE.
