Saying Something Stupid

 Word lover.

Even as a really young kid, once I started reading, “It Pays to Increase Your Word Power” in Reader’s Digest was a favorite of mine.  I love words, I love phrases that string them together in a way that lights up my brain.  I am a word-lover.  And I love to give words as gifts.

So you’d think by now I’d perhaps have mastered the use of them somewhat, have some ability to use them for great things.

I cannot believe how prone I remain to blurt out the worst possible words at the most inappropriate moments; how quickly I will still employ the profane in spite of knowing thousands of other ways to communicate even my frustration.  I say the wrong words at the wrong time in the least-effective way so {stinking} often.  Just….yuck.  Bleeehhh.

See?  Nothing. 

If only my “spoiling it all” by “saying something stupid” was as nice as “I love you.”  sigh

Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God. God is in heaven and you are on earth, so let your words be few.  Ecc 5.2 NIV
