Praying that your holidays are excrement...

At my church we have a weekly prayer breakfast. We cover world, national and state events; personal losses and joys; church doings and issues; and anything that relates to our town.

And so in amongst prayers for our Pacific neighbours and those from our congregations who are grieving I chose to pray for our minister and her husband, who are soon to head off for some well deserved long service leave. I prayed that they be refreshed and given the opportunity to flourish, like well-tended plants. It wasn't until I'd finished that I suddenly realised that I might have got a little too much into my analogy.

Don't you hate it when an analogy gets away from you?

You see, technically I believe I prayed that this holiday be for them like plants that are given a good dose of manure which gives them the nutrients to thrive.

Yes, I prayed that their holiday be ... er... excrement.

And what's the chance I meant it the way it came out?

... Approximately None!

that sounds like something that would not go down well. hopefully they have a good sense of humor!

Glad to see you back!

Funny you should say "excrement." My Stoopid Brother uses the word All. The. Time. to mean 'excellent', and thinks he's SO FUNNY each and ever time he does that.

He says 'womb' instead of 'room', 'uterus' instead of 'ute', 'foetus' instead of 'feet' and a whole stack of others.

He expects us to laugh and say, "You are so funny."

He's a drip, and rapidly becoming drippier every year that passes.

Nice one. I hope your prayer group is relaxed enough that people actually giggled. :)

Whoops! Funny.

And yes, Givinya, "excrement" makes me think of Wee Bro, too.

I have to admit I do find it funny, though.
