I'll be sending out invitations to the team.

DIAMOND'S idea of a weekly happening is going forward, starting with the first one this Wednesday. Arrival time, any time after 7pm CST. There is already a thread for it in the general discussion forum. I'll incorporate your idea into the invite, GRYPH.

I like the Wahoo Wed idea, myself! That way I could get with the team one day a week, at least! We just need someone to spark the discussion with a ridiculous posting of news story or something. Shouldn't be hard to find 'em :-)

I'm located in Pacific Daylight Time.

I think I may be a cat already, MAYA. Annoying, independent, proud, willful, and so cute when I'm sleeping.

Ooh, I like it! Wednesday Wahoo! :) May even remember to stop by and add to the melee ... I take an extra large, but you already knew, that, eh?

emoticon

What DID you think I meant?

Misti, welcome to the team. I promise not to pray. Period. :D

One time, I had a woman who is agnostic-but-has-a-politically-correct-clo
set-believer-maybe husband tell me that he and she felt I shouldn't state "I'm an atheist" quite so publicly - that it might affect how people react to me.

Huh?

I thought the point was that I *was* trying to change how "people" automatically see me.

Yeah, I get that cats don't pray. I'm coming back as a cat. :)

That was rather a nice happening, WATER-D!

To see what happened on Wednesday, CATSDONTPRAY, check the "What a relief" thread. We were all needing a party that night.

"Around here we like to have some fun while we roll up our sleeves and work on changing our lives for the better."

Why yes. Yes, we do. In fact, sometimes we like to have fun so much we get together for strippers, pizza and drinks on a week night.

Personally, I think we should do it each Wednesday. We could call it our Wednesday Wahoo! Therapy Session. emoticon

I won't pray for you, either.

People don't seem to realize that they're hurling insults by saying, "I'll pray for you", when you're going through tough times.

Making the REASON for the tough times "not having God in your life", in effect, dismisses your power to change your situation. That irks me, too. They are pretty much saying (in what they think is a nice way) they really don't care and don't want to hear about your problems. Condescending promises of prayer are sometimes just ways to put us in our place, as if being big buddies with an Almighty makes a person "better" than godless creatures, such as yourself. Or a "heath-urn" as my mountain relatives like to call me.

I know plenty of people who have God in their lives 24-7 who STILL go through tough times.

Thinking of you, and definitely NOT praying for you!

Feel free to make me a sparkfriend so we can stay in touch, as I'm not that great about reading message boards some weeks :-)

I'm located in Pacific Daylight Time.

Hello all! I'm glad I found this team. I'm going through a rough patch right now, and I know a lot of my IRL "friends" (if you can call them that) believe it's because I don't have "God" in my life. I don't mind if they pray for me (except when they're praying that I'll "see the light"), because hey, do what you do, but it would be nice to have some people saying, "I'll be thinking of you" or "I'll send good thoughts" too.

You can call me Cats, CDP, or Misti.

Planned rewards:
180 Night out at the movies (Achieved 2/23/11, rewarded 2/27/11)
170 1 week of spa services (Achieved 4/28/11, rewarded 5/19/11)
160 Pedicure and eyebrow threading (Achieved 7/25/11, rewarded 7/30/11)
150 Full beauty package of mani-pedi, 60 minute facial, and full facial waxing (if cleared by doctor)
140 "Staycation"
