I have a feeling punching God in the head could shatter's one fist.

That being said, I've always liked Bono's description of the Psalms. He calls them the blues of the Bible, David screaming out in anger at God.

God and I aren't on the greatest terms these days either...

You're in my prayers, Dread.

I like that description. When reading through the Psalms, sometimes it seems like a fist fight - David swinging away in his pain and doubt.

I like the comedian Dane Cook's bit he does about wanting to punch people in the FACE......I have been saying that a lot when I am frustrated or mad at someone! It makes me laugh and instead I don't get all mad. It works for me!

I certainly would not want to punch God in the face, that might hurt. I also am a strong believer in "what goes around comes around" and wouldn't want to see what God might do to me to retaliate!

No, I don't feel that way. (like wanting to punch God in the Head)

Whenever I have felt distant from God or feel like He/She hasn't listened to me, I have to remind myself of God's Promise to ALWAYS HEAR ME and TO NEVER LEAVE ME.

And then I have to admit that somehow I have removed myself from awareness of God's Presence and begin the process of reconnecting to God.

I agree - trying to punch God in the head would probably only shatter your fist (come back to hurt you).

My Stubborn Irish grandmother is about 24 hours away from meeting the good Lord. She was given five years to live in 1982. She worked a job up until six months ago.

I would love to be a fly on the wall when she gets to heaven and see what she has to say to the good lord. Last summer she told me she was still pissed off at my grandfather for passing in 1990. She may not punch the Lord in the head, but I think my grandfather is about to get his ass kicked.

Interesting thread, but it's kind of hard to punch someone in the head that doesn't exist, no?

Thanks...

She passed at 5:30 today.

I am so thankful that my daughter pressed us to go drive the 8 1/2 hours to be with her at Thanksgiving.

We just spent the early evening here looking at famikly pictures. I started laughing and crying tears at the picture of her dressed as Paula Abdul two summers ago. My family has spent a week together for the last 16 years, in the month of July on the Jersey Shore.

We used to celebrate a holiday and put a play on Thursday night of the week we were there. When American Idol came my grandmother asked the family to put on Ocean City Idol two summers ago. SO instead of a play, on the night of the week when we had about 25 people living in the house, we put on our first Ocean City Idol.

Mom Mom was Paula Abdul and the judge. I performed "Little Bitty Pretty One" with my uncle (four years older than me) and my brother in law........We won

ANyways, Mom Mom tonight is in heaven with her beloved husband. 80 Years old and full of Irish Spunk.

I just arrived home from the British Beer Company having a few toasts in her memory.

"Hear me knocking, Kocking at your door."

Amen.

Matt I'm sorry for your loss.
The family play/Ocean City Idol sounds like a blast and that you have a lot of good memories.

Thanks

I am so relieved that she did not suffer. She is at a better place.

I just got off the phone with my father, and she apparently had paid for her own funeral within the last few months, so she knew her time was coming apparently, and set up all of the directions with the Priest. No WAKE, she left a note for everyone saying if you want to sit around and talk about me you can, but not in front of me.

I will leave for NJ Sunday to be with my family to have that talk
