Daily Prompt: Un/Faithful

Tell us about the role that faith plays in your life — or doesn’t.


No, I don’t feel like it, I don’t really feel like writing a blog, but for the want of something better to do I am sitting at the keyboard and waiting for inspiration. First of all let us find a photo. This was no problem. I was in one of my experimental photographic moods yesterday and the sun was shining through the blinds, this being the result. Not a special signal from another place to say “see the light” but just a feat of nature.  So again I have not been saved. Mr. Swiss found that I take interesting photos. Unfortunately Mr. Swiss is not a talent scout for the Pulitzer photo of the year.

This morning Mr. Swiss paid a visit to the temple of nourishment. Our local supermarket decided to open its doors today, even if it is Boxing Day. The people must be fed. I was going with him, but decided that my spirit was willing but the flesh was weak and in any case had quite a pile of ironing from the bed linen washing session yesterday - no rest for the unfaithful

In the name of commercialism the supermarket was open which was an exception in our Roman Catholic canton. In our market town the shops remained shut until Monday. if you really want to know what is happening in the world then take a trip over to Facebook. I have already discovered that Canada has a special sales day today, all the shops are open and the merry shoppers are doing their work and raiding the full shelves of bargain goods. The faith in the meaning of sales is spreading across the world.

So today I am not preaching the good word, if you need it and looking for it I am sure you will find it somewhere even in Internet, although at the moment I find Internet is flooded with photos of Christmas trees and children opening their Christmas gifts or sitting at laid tables overflowing with food. I am still recovering from the exhaustion of my cough which still tends to wake me up during the night when I should be sleeping, but it can only get better.

This really seems to be a blog for the sake of blogging with nothing very much to say. Oh and the title of the blog? Faith plays absolutely no real part in my life, I am too busy blogging about it.
