Contact from NSM...

So, the last time I heard anything from NSM was back on May 5th when she gave me her permission to step away from the relationship and changed history to make it that she and NF CHOSE to stay away when they were in town despite how badly they miss me and wanted to see us, because they are oh so noble and supposedly knew it would be too stressful on me and ds. *rolling eyes*

Anyways, so after - what? - a month and a half? I get an email from NSM yesterday. It was some religious email forward with no personal notes or messages attached. I feel pretty sure there's either a dig intended in there somewhere OR she's fishing to see if I'm over being silly and ready to respond to her yet. I'm curious to know what you all think. Here's the email:

Recall Notice:

This is totally amazing. Be sure to read it to the end. Talk about clever and to the point! Never heard it put quite like this before.

The Maker of all human beings (GOD) is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart. This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units. This defect has been technically termed "Sub-sequential Internal Non-Morality," or more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some of the symptoms include:
1. Loss of direction
2. Foul vocal emissions
3. Amnesia of origin
4. Lack of peace and joy
5. Selfish or violent behavior
6. Depression or confusion in the mental component
7. Fearfulness
8. Idolatry
9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this defect. The Repair Technician, JESUS, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required.

The number to call for repair in all areas is: P-R-A-Y-E-R. Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:
1. Love
2. Joy
3. Peace
4. Patience
5. Kindness
6. Goodness
7. Faithfulness
8. Gentleness
9. Self control

Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.
WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded. For free emergency service, call on Jesus.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility.

Thank you for your attention, 


P.S. Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by 'Knee mail'!

Because He Lives!

It's the first list of "symptoms" of sin that I think could be intended as a dig. As if to say, I wouldn't be acting this way and "disrespecting" them if I wasn't so obviously full of sin. If I would just get God in my life, I'd be the good daughter they "raised". The two of them were ALWAYS preaching at the three of us kids and it's only gotten worse since my NF became a preacher. Of course it could also be that NSM is fishing to see if I'm ready to talk to them again yet. What I don't get is, if that's the case, why not just email me and ASK? Why do N's always seem to feel compelled to play these stupid games all the time? It's so stupid and annoying.

At any rate, I have ZERO intention of responding to NSM's stupid email. Maybe my continued non-response will prompt her to send something more direct? Guess time will tell!


  1. My first impression: I dislike emails like this that imply God made a mistake in creating us the way we are. Ummm... no, this was the plan, from the beginning. God knew we would make mistakes, and so He planned for a Savior. Isaiah and others prophesied of it, so the plan was in the works.

    Second impression: There is the implication that life will be wonderful and perfect as long as you repent. Life happens. John the Baptist and Job were both beloved of God, so was Jesus Christ, and look what happened. Life is hard. It's supposed to be, because we're learning.

    I delete all emails like this.

    As to NSM, it requires no effort and no personal touch, so it's "safe" for them, as least that's how it seems. I don't respond to "foot-in-the-door" tactics. I stick to the boundaries I've set whenever possible. With my NM, if I give her an inch she wants the world. Stick to your boundaries.

  2. I don't like these emails that seem to use a personal perception of God and God's intent to push an agenda. I personally don't like it when anyone thinks they are God's voice box and seems to have the right to judge in God's name if a person is good or evil. I'd prefer it if these people stop passively hiding behind God and say what they mean rather than guilt others with their ideology.

    I also delete e-mails like this.

    You got your value system and moral compass, DA - you don't need this noise interfering with your destiny.

  3. Judy has a good summation. My impressions were a bit different. I always get irritated with the depression = sin equation. I have suffered depression most my life and I can't tell you how many times I have been told that if I prayed and had faith all will be well. I like what my counselor said, "Sometimes you are depressed because your life sucks." I still chuckle at his tone of voice. If you are no contact it doesn't seem logical to make a dig at you. But I learned that people are not logical. I am with Judy, the delete button would take care of this in a jiffy. I think God is a lot more kind hearted than many parents.

  4. Thanks God, but my children are perfect. You don't get to tell me to fix them. I just responded to a letter my very religious father recently wrote to me.

  5. Still no further word from NSM. Guess this email was just a fishing expedition to see if I was ready to respond to them yet. I have to say though, I am especially surprised I didn't hear anything from either NSM or NF after not acknowledging NF on Father's Day recently.
