A brilliant remark from my dad earlier today.....
"Just because you're burning a candle doesn't mean you're holding a séance."
And on that note, it also doesn't mean you're Catholic. It is what the intent of your heart makes it. Just like with anything else you do or don't do.
Good thing, too...cuz I burned one earlier today and the house still smells faintly yummy...and the only spirits I had to deal with over it were quite among the living ("What's that for, mom? Can I touch it?") and not the dead, and I also didn't pray over it (well, unless you count, Dear Father, this child don't listen)!
Anyway, the turkey turned out fine, as did the stuffing, scalloped potatoes in the crockpot, and the biscuits....(made from scratch...I scratched them right out of the bag from the freezer).
I have pictures, but will have to wait....been quite busy and it's totally time for bed.
