"Oh, Do You Have a Square?"

Well, there's a first time for everything! This Sunday was my first Easter Sunday away from my sweet family.  The week prior, my mother came up for 5 days while I had my wisdom teeth out (kill me) and we found my new Church home!

It's an adorable Presbyterian Church where all members are 75+. I prefer that, because I can sit in the middle, by myself, but talk to everyone! They are all so wise, and so sweet. I enjoy a traditional Church service with older members, it's just my favorite thing!
However, I would like to find a young adult group, but this Church feels like the perfect fit!

Anyways, back to Easter Sunday-
I knew if I didn't go to Church on Easter Sunday, my Mother would know, and it wouldn't be pretty!

I couldn't make it to my Church though, because it's a good ways away, and I had Brunch plans.

What's a girl to do??

Thankfully, I talked to my friend T, and we decided to go together,
...only thing is, he's Catholic!

Now, I spent 8 years in Catholic School, and I have a deep appreciation for that religion. Truthfully, I thought it would be fun, and it was right up the road from where I was brunching. 

When we walked in, it was the most beautiful Church! We sat in the middle, and the music began to play. It was just gorgeous, and after each song- the children would yell "YAY" It was precious!

NOW- onto when things took a turn, and got awkward!

The Priest was nice, but didn't speak English! I had no idea what he was saying, and then they came around flinging Holy Water into the crowd, and a drop nailed...and I mean NAILED me in the eye! I accidentally squealed "Oh my God!"

Great...i'm there 10 minutes, and I take our Lords name in vain.
"so SO sorry"- I said, as he paused for a second...

THEN, it was time for the offering.

I didn't have any cash, and wasn't think, so as the Usher came by I whispered to my friend...
"Do you think they have a square??"

The Usher then looked at me, smiled, and said "next week, sweetie."

HOW embarrassing.

Just to reiterate-

...I asked if they had a square swipe my card tithe to the Lord.

HAAAHAHA! Never a dull moment, y'all!

Thankful that I made it to Church, and had a wonderful Sunday. In fact, the whole Easter was wonderful. I spent it with my work family, and it was just perfect.
