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!

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
