What do you really think about in Church?

So today in church i was trying to pay attention. But the priest said something normal about Mary in the context of Jesus' mother, and then my mind wandered. I grew up knowing (/assuming) Mary was just a vessel, you know? to transport Jesus to earth, deliver him, no genetic makeup etc. so when people call her Jesus' mother, well what do they really mean? in my head:

(A) Sperm + Eggs = Baby -----------------------I understand perfectly

(B) Holy Spirit -> Mary (vessel, no genetic makeup needed, magical, miracle)-----------------------I understand perfectly

Thought in Church:
(C) Holy Spirit + Mary (with eggs, genetic makeup, as in really his mother)??? = Jesus--------Lighting pls don't strike.

I picked option (B), asked for forgiveness for potential sacrilegious thoughts, & put my mind back on the Mass. As my friends know i'm sometimes prone to "blonde moments" (it's a cute saying but but if any blondes are offended, comment on it, & I promise never to use it again =).

PS don't forget Nordstrom's is currently having their big Anniversary Sale, it started Friday, July 18 and ends Sunday, August 3. Thanks to Dave for both the cartoons. I love his cartoons!

My weekend is going great, hope yours is too.

bisou, Bombchell. (my French is improving lol)


Adam had neither father nor mother!! so of course Jesus is all God. right? I dont feel too stupid anymore because apparently on the internet others have asked & resolved this(eg: on this Yahoo Answers question).lol




  1. @ my post, why so negative??? lol

    @ your post, but if the conception of christ was immaculate, then there was no sperm and eggs involved, right???


  2. lol yeah that's what i later concluded.

  3. joseph must have been feelin salty that another 'man' got his wife pregnant lol they should make a hip hopera about that lol


  4. Funny!

    As for your question about the navy/purple dress and the wedding . . . Are you a bridesmaid, or is the color a theme/suggestion? Maybe you should send the bride a swatch and see if she approves? I absolutely adore navy, and think it would be totally classy for a wedding (but it's definitely not going to pass for indigo/lavender, sadly . . .)

  5. Ooh you're Catholic?? So am I! Um, I don't know why they don't like me... some do I guess...

  6. lol I think about crazy stuff all the time in church....I won't a post about it a while back...Being in church and looking at the people around you can put you in deep thought sometimes.

  10. Hi, Michelle.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and commenting. I really appreciate it. : )

    I agree with you about the mind wandering in church. I'm also Catholic, btw.

    I think what matters is that you are there and you are thinking. That's why God gave us brains. : )

  11. umm about the mary thing i am completely clueless about I am catholic too...thats the sad part for the comment girl!!


  12. please dont feel like the only one..sometimes i end up questioning some things that go on in the bible..but you know it has been areound for years...and i have only been here for 19, so you know..history is history..

  17. Very interesting post. I had never thought of Mary and Jesus from that perspective. I usually don't try to "understand" religious stuff, as it is supposed to be believed in, not explained. At least that's what I've been taught in my Philosophy classes:)

  24. you cant turn off the internet!!! lol but you'll be happy to know that i did ok on my final...i hope lol


  25. I dig what you are saying but I personally think that God(IAM) doesn't haggle about such things. We couldn't understand it anyway. Yeshua(Jesus) came through Mary to be the Son of Man (Humanly related to us) Emmanuel (God With US). He had to be flesh and blood. The scripture says he was tempted in all things for our sakes.


I love comments with your thoughts. I read every comment & will reply questions.
