Smile, Smile, Smile

Getting DH to smile is almost impossible. Doesn't he look as though he has the weight of the world on his shoulders?

Religious Test: Do You Pass?

Oh, boy! I did my best to answer honestly, and here are the results. I think that it is interesting that I have more in common with Islam that Roman Catholicism, and that Catholicism is last on the list, especially when one considers my reverence for the rituals, the happiness I have in a cathedral, and how much I enjoy attending mass, not to mention my fascination with the lives of the saints and early martyrs and my collection of retablos and other Christian art. I also thought I would rank higher on Hinduism, though I not surprised at all about the Buddhism.
Be blessed! Peace to All!

Your Results:

The top score on the list below represents the faith that Belief-O-Matic, in its less than infinite wisdom, thinks most closely matches your beliefs. However, even a score of 100% does not mean that your views are all shared by this faith, or vice versa.
Belief-O-Matic then lists another 26 faiths in order of how much they have in common with your professed beliefs. The higher a faith appears on this list, the more closely it aligns with your thinking.

I did expect to score high in the Hindu and Buddhist religions since I know I have commonalities there.
By the way, I am going to take the test again, and watch how I "weight" each answer more carefully; I don't particularly like being branded a "Neo-pagan." Good, very interesting test. To take it, go to:
