    Oh I am totally with you!! I hate it. God did not give you that great vacation! I think the “feeling blessed” should be reserved more for like “oh look at this picture of my brother who just got home from Iraq”

    @HourThyme:  Yep, annoying.  I didn’t realize it was a pre-set option on FB though?  Meh.  The religious posts irritate me (good for them for finding something that makes them happy, no issues with that).  I usually block from news feed.

    @MichiganGirl24:  It’s funny what people attribute to God’s will and what is actually done by their own will.”.  +1!

    I think it’s so irritating as well.  Especially irritating when I see who exactly posts this…. it’s always someone who doesn’t know the first thing about God.

    It’s annoying when religious people feel that they are the only ones who can use certain words like “blessed”. That annoys me.

    I do not make a connection with the word to god. I think to most people it just means they are lucky and grateful.

    @HourThyme: I agree that people do like to paint the perfect picture on FB. I think all social media including this forum allows people to live out to an extent their “fairytale”.

    @CarterLove:  This.

    For me the word means fortunate, and has nothing to do with god.

    Everyone has a reason every single day to feel fortunate, or blessed.

    Yup, hate it. Pretty much anything braggy on facebook like that.

    BARFFFFF. Stop justifying your “happiness” and go do it quietly.

    I don’t have Facebook and I’m not religious, so I’m not sure I’ve ever heard anyone say that.

    I’m so glad someone finally said something about this! LOL It is one of my BIGGEST pet peeves! I can’t stand it.

    “SO went to the grocery store today. So blessed!”
    “I got McDonald’s for lunch today. So blessed!”
    “I studied for 30 hours before a test. Got an A! So blessed!”

    I’m not religious, but I’m pretty sure God has more important things than to make sure that you get an A on your test that you spent a ton of time studying for anyway. It’d be more of a blessing if you never attended class and didn’t study! LOL
