Let's All Go To Confession

I am not Catholic but there are certain practices of the Catholic church that I have always thought highly of. One of those things is confession. While I do believe that coming before God and confessing our short comings is better done without the priest interceding for us, I do like the theraputic component of confessing to another living person without the burden of them "knowing" you. It gives a certain freedom. Even though my BFF totally knows me, I care what she thinks of me. Anyhoo, here's my confessions for the day. Feel free to add your own.

1. I told a white lie to get out of something I didn't want to do.

2. I didn't stick to my budget this week.

3. I really like Nick Lachey's new song.

4. I said not-so-nice things about someone (only to my husband, not the whole world) because they hurt my feelings.

1.) I pretended to listen to Joshua tell me a story that he was so excited about from school. I would say, "Oh, really?" or "that's so cool" every once in awhile. But the story was taking sooooooo long, and it bored me. But I gotta love his excitement about telling me!

2.) I coveted my friend's husband! I want my man to surprise me and take me away for a couple of days!

How many "Hail Mary"s do I need to say?

1.) I am trying very hard to stop doing that, & just say "no". I am trying to teach Cade fibbing is wrong - how awful of me if I am doing it. :(

2.) um, yea, me too. As always.

3.) I LOVE his new song!!

I rolled my eyes in my head and prayed that God would make someone stop talking in our small group.

or to say it more correctly... to make someone in our small group stop talking.

Ha! I committed a "small group sin" tonight too. :-) Such as kinda sorta hoping someone decided to not come anymore. . .

You'd better change this post because I'm going to keep coming back to confess...

I threatened Nora with a spanking at the store today and did not follow through when I got home. Bad mom. Bad mom. Is that a sin? I choose to call it Grace today based on my night last night and my short temper...

grace "anonymous" jd! It's one of the most beautiful and difficult things in God's design. Nora was shown a bit of it from you today whether you realized it at the time or not...GREAT MOM!
