Cops, military, sailors, economists, JWs, advertising honchos, techies (especially) etc. develop a vocabulary that helps them economize communication, which don't always make sense, but serve a purpose. This annoys you because you have an antithetical relationship with Mormonism. There are some subcultures I don't like, but I have to put up with their in-speak.
I find the use of the word "even" especially quaint. I'm a never-Mo, but I gather it's restricted to prayer language? Look at the brighter side, Presley(truly)rocks: Do Mormons use the phrase, "And behold,..." "And it came to pass..." or "yea..."
But you're still stuck with "every fiber of my being," "grateful for the moisture," and "nourish our bodies!"

Like most everything in the temple circus, I wondered what was going to happen when I was supposed to "take out" my endowments. The only info I had been given related to this strange statement is that it would be oh, so marvelous, sacred, and life changing.
Yeah, it changed my life alright.
(Hmmm, wonder if this wording is straight out of Masonry? At any rate it is weird).
I did later put those words to good use - at least sort of the same words as I "took out" my leave of the cult, and oh, it was so marvelous, sacred, and especially wonderously life changing.
