'Man creates his own detiny' - Utter Bullshit
Teek officially is a student of a Southern Baptist Sunday school.
Amusing but true and though I laugh, it unnerves me that things work out the way they do.
A background on God's sick little joke:
My daughter is a fanatical pursuer of knowledge. Political, scientific, religious, useless trivia, anything she can comprehend she wishes to know about. Well having a somewhat deep understanding of religious facts and such I've covered most of the basics of Christianity with her on my own (along with other various religious beliefs) but of course she wanted to know even more. Lo an behold there is one elderly lady that frequents the store that I work at that seems to know about everyone and I talk to her about Lydia all the time because as a good country christian lady, she is concerned. (The woman is about the only true Christian I know around here, and yes happens to be the Sunday school teacher at her church that I went to as a child)
She meets Lydia in person while we were in there shopping and as my daughter is, strikes up an extensive conversation with said lady about church, and as soon as she finds out the lady is the teacher...BOOM, she jumps at the invitation to go to her class. Of course this leaves me with the slight dillema of getting her to the class. I weasle and finagle about getting her a ride (because I'm deeply spiritual, I even got a thing for God but Church and me don't mix well) Anyways I am told regrettably that lo and behold to everyone's amusement but mine, that the van they use had a transmission problem and doesn't work, so I set it up to have her picked up by the pastor. Everything was set..I was still free, and then it happens Lydia went to stay with my sister the night before her first class and there's a snow storm. Something happened and I basically said 'I'll just take her". I come to realize without thinking that Suday school was BEFORE curch (yeah it's been a really long time) and that while Lydia was there in her school thing, I was kinda stuck attending the adult class as well, then since I was already there, couldn't really leave when Church started (and of course they have kiddie church) so I was there through the service.
It amuses me how I get suckered into things by God because I could never tell my daughter no to her wanting to learn more about something like this. I promised myself I would never do such a thing. As it goes now, the little old lady has somewhat adopted me along with a few other older ladies that felt I needed mother henning because of my mom's passing and they don't let go easily.
I'm attempting to make the most of things. I made it clear to the pastor that I don't need saving, that I've come to terms with everthing on my own and glossed over a few issues, but otherwise just go Sunday's for Lydia.
Maybe I'll get bored and end up running the place one day and make that Ordained Minister cirtificate I got off the internet years ago come in handy.
