You might have been raised Southern Baptist...

You might have been raised Southern Baptist when...

your two year old stands on the kitchen table and sings "Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow".


You might have been raised Southern Baptist when...

your two year old sings the Gloria patri aka Glory Be to the Father and insists that you stand to sing.


You might have been raised Southern Baptist when...

your two year old enjoys yelling AMEN!



You might have been raised Southern Baptist when...

your two year old likes her hymns one way... LOUD!


---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are a few of my favorites I found in an e-mail...

You might be a Southern Baptist when...

- You think God's presence is strongest on the back three pews.

- You think "Amazing Grace" is the national anthem.

- Your definition of fellowship has something to do with food.

- You ever wake up in the middle of the night craving fried chicken and interpret that feeling as a call to preach.

- You believe that you are supposed to take a covered dish to heaven.

- You have never sung the third verse of any hymn.

- You clapped in church and felt guilty about it all week.

Hope you got as tickled as I did.

Christmas is right around the corner.

Are you finished shopping?

We aren't.

Oh yeah, I am not, but I can certainly relate.
Merry Christmas Hailey!
