Jesus loves me this I know…

You don’t really see this much anymore… at least I don’t.

People placing with wreckless abandon, bumper stickers of places they’ve been, bands they’ve seen, funny sayings… so I thought I’d show what one young lady here in Houston, Texas has adorned her truck with.

I thought this would be a good one to start off with. She’s claimed ownership of her femininity.

This one resonated with me a lot. I used to drive an old beater that basically got me from point A to point B. One time I was going to meet the ex so I could pick up my daughter for the weekend. I saw a brief window of opportunity in the traffic where I could squeeze through one wave of vehicles and the next as the light’s cycle went through it’s drill. I mashed it!… button hooked it around the turn, through the light, hit the incline of the entrance of the gas station, leaned around the gas pumps and kinda slid to a stop. The daughter thought it was cool. The ex was pissed. Apparently it stuck in my daughter’s mind because just this weekend she said, “daddy remember when you came real fast around the corner that one time when you were picking me up?”

I’ve been here before. In fact, I’m sure i’ve yelled this in traffic at the morons who pervade the streets of Houston. Most certainly the yankee infiltration that our fair city has been victim to because of energy companies and the like. : ) (like that little bit of southern nationalism? : )

I thought this was a testament to the nature of most folks from the Lone Star State. No matter how weird, obscure or goofy you are… always proud to be a Texan. (a girl I used to date who was from Ohio said, “you know the rest of the country thinks y’all (i put in the y’all for effect) are a bunch of arrogant bastards.” I kinda blinked a little and responded with… “you make it sound like a bad thing.” : )

I’m in a really goofy mood. Thanks Amuirin, B-mom and Lazy Buddhist for making me feel better.

But THIS ONE… This was my favorite. Take that chumps! i AM his favorite.

ok, so this one actually got me to thinking. Does Jesus have any one favorite? I mean he must have favorites, right. If he can favor believers over non believers then why wouldn’t he favor a few of those in the believers crowd? You know… those that gave a little more in the offering plate, maybe those that prayed a little harder than others, those that didn’t keep sinning over and over again just because they knew they weren’t perfect just forgiven. Don’t ya think so?

I don’t know… What I do know is I need to get me one of those stickers so I can slap it on my guitar case.

  1. I love your posts. I was just watching Ron White on the comedy channel last night, and man… I have no idea why he’s so freakin appealing. Half the things he says would usually offend me, the other half aren’t even all that funny, but it’s the delivery I guess. He is so exactly what he is, a good ol’ boy Texan who drinks like a fish, it’s hilarious.

  2. Heh heh, I liked the bumper sticker too.

    However, I have this magnet on my fridge.

    Very unenlightened of me, I know. *snicker snicker*

Apparently me and French Horn girl have a similar sense of humor. wish she would have warned me first… chili cheese fries through the nose is not a cool feeling. Jules]

    Well, the picture didn’t post… maybe the link will…

    OK, over and out.

    • I had that saying made up on a tee shirt for my X boyfriend when I was a Christian in the christ-life Fellowship, they were a bit more Liberal, but they were Christians.

      I think he is still in it (the fellowship)

  4. This was so fun and I can’t believe that I haven’t commented on this. I guess I have Christmas mush brain.

  5. Glad to hear you’re feeling better. 🙂 Sometime I may do a companion piece to this with some typical Berkeley bumper stickers.

  6. Hey LB! oh, I’d love to see something like this from your part of the world. Did I start a meme?!? Tag your it. : )

  7. I accept your challenge. Once I get out from under this deluge of work, I’ll grab my camera, and and see what I can capture. Happy happy to you!

  8. I did not know what the word meant.
    deluge
    I looked it up and as a former Christian I was inspired to look it up in different ways , I do not know if your familiar with GOD as Desim, lights my fire so this is what I found.

    ” The level of religions hypocrisy is epic in this country, but thank goodness the founding fathers were desperately afraid that a state religion would be imposed on the citizenry, as Roman Catholicism and then Anglicism had been imposed on British citizens. Unfortunately, the religious hypocrites in this country want to cite the founding fathers in their zeal to impose their religion on all American citizens. They seem to forget that in 1776, the founding fathers did not extend civil rights to anyone other than fellow white male property owners, and many of them were slave owners. That’s hardly a testament to the moral power of their religion and should frighten anyone who realizes the religious right wants to return this country to the 1776 model of intolerance and persecution. Religion certainly has a place in modern life but that place IS NOT the government.

    “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love” (1 John 4:7-8).
