OUR DAILY PINS

There have been countless times during my parenting experience where I think we should really make religion more of a focus in our family.  Now, don't get me wrong -- I, by no means, am a Bible beater; nor is my husband.  However, little inquiring minds wanna know just who this "God" dude actually is and why so many people are always talking about him.

And although my husband and I were both raised Methodist, we, for one reason or another, don't seem to find ourselves sitting in a church pew each and every Sunday morning.  There's always soccer or lack of sleep or just plain laziness that gets in our way of high-tailing it to the "Lord's House".  All excuses aside, though, we can't help but feel guilty every now and then about not fully exposing our kids to religion more than we do.

That point was driven home to me super loud and clear this past weekend when I was overseeing the writing of the thank you notes for my twin's birthday gifts.  Much to my surprise, I apparently bought "religious" cards for my daughter to send that included Psalm 75:1, "We give thanks to you, O God...for your Name is near."  My daughter was halfway through completing her thank you note list before she even noticed the quote and asked me to read it to her.

You can probably imagine how appalled I was when she asked me if I wanted her to "cross it out".  Holy shit!  Are we really that big of heathens that we can't appreciate a good ol' "God" quote every now and then??!!  Wow.  I told her to leave it alone, but I couldn't help but think that perhaps we really should get dressed in our Sunday best and get our prayer on this weekend.....
