Christmas is coming. I think February should hurry the hell up.

p.s.
I know I'm not a prose writer. I am oh-so-aware. This was gonna be a poem, but the line breaks began to get intrusive. Kinda like Christmas.

p.p.s.
Pleeeeeease don't hate on me for not being a Bible-toter. No offense meant, and I don't want any bashing of religious folks, either. :heart:

while i am a Bible lover, i understand your feelings as presented through this wonderful short.  i presented my beliefs on Christmas recently in a similar way. sadly, organized religion (Christendom in particular)  has so terribly misrepresented the true God that many intelligent young people like yourself have been turned off belief, period.  i was raised a Roman Catholic, but thankfully disconnected myself in my early twenties.  it was about that time that i actually started to read the Bible (yes, most alleged Christians are sadly bible-illiterate) for myself.  what an eye-opener!  so many things i had been taught in "religion" simply weren't supported by the Book that had been used for centuries as a touchstone for what i had been taught.  dear one, forget about the past.  get to know tge REAL Jesus, as well as his father, Jehovah.  what the gospels really teach may surprise you

I'm still catching up on comments, so pardon my lateness on this one. I do understand your appreciation of religion, but I simply can't get behind it. I've read enough to be turned off, not even paying any mind to hypocrites and their new-fangled versions of their supposed faith. I do sincerely believe there are good Christians and I believe there are many good lessons in the Bible, itself, but the harshness and contradictions deter me completely. I'll gladly defend anyone else's belief, but I also expect for folks to respect my lack of participation in religion.

Thanks very much for reading and for your thoughts on things. :hug:

I dont have an appreciation of "religion."  I do have an appreciation for truth, and to that end I've spent the past 30+ years studying the Bible without the religious baggage.  I have come to the conclusion that it is the infallible, inspired word of Almighty God, Jehovah, the Creator of heaven and earth

I use that term loosely, so my bad. I can't refer to anything as "truth" when it doesn't offer evidence, though. Faith is the fairest term, but that's neither here nor there. You're welcome to believe whatever you like but I'm gonna refrain. I wish you well, anywho. :)

"We had different notions of home...I found mine in gray eyes and worn-out coffee cups." :clap:
 
I'm a believer, but I agree wholeheartedly with you, that not all good people reside in church. I have met many unsung angels in my life who were very precious to me, regardless of their religious affiliation or lack thereof. 

Goodness is intrinsic. The warmth of a crackling fire on a winter night, the innocent laugh of a baby, the glorious mingled scent of apples and fresh cut grass in an orchard. 

Thanks for sharing your writing with us here on dA. It is thought-provoking in the best way. :hug:

I like this. You do prose just fine.

You weren't the first to mention that song, haha. It does rule, though. And thanks, you. I know you get it. You're one of the few friends I have that actually understand the epic-grandma-ness. (:
Ahhhh....I miss you, too! I really feel like the right thing for you to do would be to move to A-merry-ca. :heart: I could be happy, and it would really benefit the world if I was happy. Be a hero, won't you?

Even though I would be the first one to say that I'm not very religious, there are a few things written here that I don't quite agree with.

But when all is said and done, writing something as intimate as this is not particularly easy in a time like this where virtually everyone has the means and the intention to give you a piece of their mind if they don't like what you say. I can definitely agree with you making the effort to write it down and share it anyway.

Good work

I can appreciate that. I knew this would be something that might not jive with a lot of folks. Any time I write prose, it tends to be more so for a therapeutic effort, and I always doubt posting it. I thank you very much for reading and sharing your thoughts. :)
