Quote# 36884

[On evidence of the Voice of God in her head]

My husband does not ask me to, but I get up with him in the morning, you know to be a good wife and all that, iron his cloths for the day while he takes a shower – this morning as I was choosing his outfit for the day, I felt prompted to put him in his safety shirt polo, this bright red thing that I personally don’t like very much, but the idea was there, so OK, got it out and ironed it. Then my DH gets dressed, comes out, and asks “How did you know I needed to wear my safety shirt today? I forgot I was supposed to until you had it laid out for me – I have a meeting with …” with the person who gave him the shirt, a safety meeting. Anyways, you could think that it was just a random thought wit an odd little coincidence – or you could believe otherwise… personally, I end up noticing a lot of odd little coincidences when I act on seemingly “random” thoughts…

There you have it. God exists and he's revealing himself through polo shirts.

PS. Are you absolutely sure that your husband isn't retarded? A "safety shirt" sounds like something you'd give to a classroom full of kids with various impediments.

Most people could call that a hunch, not divine intervention. Most people being, you know, the sane ones.

Yeah, I'm surprise your memory is that vague, I usually remember important events completely when I see the associated objects.

Is her husband four years old? My boyfriend (oh noes, satanic atheists living together without being married!) chooses his own clothes.

One time I stepped outside to head to campus and it was bright outside, so I ran back upstairs to grab my sunglasses when I realized I forgot my wallet.

*Clearly* it was God leading me back to my wallet.

@ approximate: Shit, I had exactly the same words in my head before I scrolled down. Maybe I'm a witch too.

It's coincidence, baby(or maybe your husband was trying to please you).

How many shirts does your husband have...that he actually wears regularly to work? 5? 10? 20? More? Let's say 20. That means you have a 1 in 20 chance of picking out the "perfect" shirt (assuming he had one in mind). That means that you will pick out the perfect shirt for him not just once, but about 18 times every year (assuming you not a shitty guesser). So the fact that it happens once is proof of God now?

Coincidences happen. We just don't notice them when they don't...that's why they're coincidences.

What I find most interesting about this post is the phrase she uses to describe the process of laying out clothes for her hubby: “I felt prompted to put him in his safety shirt polo…”

Most people would use terms such as “set out” or even “prepare”.

“Put him in” is exactly the sort of phrase a parent would use to describe the physical act of dressing a child.

Undoubtedly you were inspired by the holy spirit, just like those prophets that wrote the bible. Hey, you're a female prophet, maybe! Quick. Everybody fall down and worship.

BTW, why don't you do you washing Monday and ALL your ironing for the week Tuesday like most people - or are you just too lazy?

perhaps he told you some time ago and you srt of remembered but dodn't quite realize why? No, that's ridiculous. It must be God directing the most mundane and irrelevant moments of your life instead of important shit.

This is the type of supernatural communication God is wasting his time on? Reminding some dimwit what shirt to wear? No wonder there's no cure for cancer yet. Billy-bob is wearing his green shirt with his blue pants and God must fix it.

Yes, honey, we all do. The phenomenon you're describing even has a name: confirmation bias.

I suspect that "random" thoughts are the only kind of thoughts she ever has.

Or he told you about it some time before and you forgot about it but remained dimly aware that it was needed on that particular day. Perhaps even the night before, when you were half asleep, and you treated it as nothing more than a dream and cleared it out of your consciousness?

Because without God you couldn't possibly get lucky. Uh-huh.

"My husband does not ask me to, but I get up with him in the morning, you know to be a good wife and all that, iron his cloths for the day while he takes a shower"

The guy has such a busy fucking schedule he can't plug an iron in once in a while? Good god.

"this morning as I was choosing his outfit for the day,"

Holy fuck. Are you a wife or a mother surrogate?

"I felt prompted to put him in his safety shirt polo,"

Bwahahahaha! Is that a pet name you guys have for a straightjacket?

"Then my DH gets dressed, comes out, and asks “How did you know I needed to wear my safety shirt today? I forgot I was supposed to until you had it laid out for me – I have a meeting with …” with the person who gave him the shirt, a safety meeting. Anyways, you could think that it was just a random thought wit an odd little coincidence – or you could believe otherwise"

I'll believe otherwise, thank you. Something like, say, he mentioned the fucking meeting earlier and you subconsciously recalled the fact at a later time. I have no doubt you know his every move anyway and he sure as hell doesn't seem capable of remembering a simple meeting since he's got the lil' missus to take care of everything for him.

"personally, I end up noticing a lot of odd little coincidences when I act on seemingly “random” thoughts…"

Seeing patterns where none exist is a little game the human brain likes to amuse itself with. Careful it doesn't become an obsession or you may get a "safety shirt" of your own when they lock you away.

I like Brain's idea - he mentioned something about the meeting earlier.

lying delusional woman.we all know God only speaks to men.
women arent worthy of a one on one with the Lord.Satan has gotten ahold of this woman,and is trying to replace God in her life with himself.i suggest her husband prays for her,or leave her.a good beating could also drive the demons out of her,i suggest 3 long beatings per day until she is cleansed.
