I had the song

“Dancing Queen”

stuck in my head

I wept

I repented of all

that had brought me to

this piteous place

Verily, did I gnash my teeth

and pray for deliverance

Yet naught would avail me

Finally, beseeching the Bible for comfort

I did open it at random to Mark 14:36

and therein did read:

“Abba…” Jesus prayed

  1. Well, you may gnash your teeth and pray for deliverance but, I’m sitting here laughing my butt off. Thanks, Mitch. I needed something light this morning.

    Great post. My husband is the only person I know who likes Abba. Which means I hang out with a specific crowd, since Abba is so popular. I feel your pain.

    I love that term Abba, for Father but sweeter like Papa or daddy. Thanks for reminding me and for making me smile

    Had to look this song up since I couldn’t remember which one it was. (I think I’ve only heard this song in movies and thrift stores until now.) Thanks for following, and getting it stuck in my head now. E.R.Peters 😉

    Bwahahahaha that’s perfect, Mr. Mitch!! My mom grew me up on a Best of ABBA tape, so I might or might not have all the words memorized… 😉

    And now, you’ve made sure the rest of us have it playing in our heads as well. Good grief. [Never was a fan of (the singers who called themselves) Abba.]
