I don't like to complain, but...

Okay, so we were at church on Sunday and there was so much that bothered me. First of all, I am a firm believer in dressing appropriately for church. I guess that's why people refer to the term "Sunday clothes" or "church clothes" when they are referring to nicer duds. I have been seeing too many people wearing clothes that look like they strolled in right from the night club. I am talking tight knit cotton jersey; chest bearing, cleavage showing stretchy camisoles; pants so low you can see their butt crack and hip bones. Come on! Where is your dignity?

Pet peeve number two is noises that should be avoided. This is why we have vibrate mode on cell phones. A couple of cell phones went off during the quite moments in mass. These weren't your typical ring-ring. These were loud obnoxious songs certainly not appropriate for church.

Next is the toy that the mom allows her child to bring in church. I am not sure about other mom's, but I bring quiet toys such as colors, coloring books, books, etc. This child was playing with a talking doll. Come on now! Have a bit of sense. If anything it is for the common good of the congregation.

I know, I am being a bit rough, but these are things of common courtesy. People have forgotten about manners and respect for other people.

For myself, I go in the best clothing I have (which is not saying a lot right now). I totally agree with the cell phone and noisy toy things, though.

I believe in being comfortable in church, but I don't think I'd feel comfortable if God could see my butt crack in his house. I know we're made in his image, but I don't think he wants is showing there.
