So today is my dad's birthday. He is deceased (died the day after obama was elected). I have sat and thought about him quite a bit and have enjoyed my thoughts. Have I cried?? Certainly...I do miss him!! I am human for "god's sake"!! But I love how my christian family members have two responses to this...1-Why are you crying?? 2-Let's just pretend he never even existed...I love how my dad was the most faithful tither I knew..and he died of cancer. How many times do you have to tithe before you get a "get out of cancer free" card? The hypocrisy and lack of humanness in the "body of christ" never ceases to amaze me...too much.
