Recently, I heard such a strange mix of spirituality from my neighbor. She told me about her father's death and how her stepmother was being really awful to her and to her siblings. I offered my condolences and said that I was so sorry that things were being made worse by that woman's meanness. She then said the strangest thing (well, odd to me, anyway). Quoth she: "Well, say a little prayer, and maybe Karma will get her!"
No big deal, and she said it with a wink and a smile, but it's funny to me how there's sort of a mix of beliefs going on in some people's minds. Did I mention that she attends the Baptist church that's within walking distance of where we live? Say a little prayer, and maybe Karma will get her.
