Single Words

You know how some people pick a word instead of a resolution for New Year? It’s a neat idea. I wonder if I’ll grow into it. Right now I’m chuckling about how much writers can complicate single words.

You know what I mean, right? Whether it’s trying to peer into the soul of a comment or suggestion or finding a better word to fit your cadence, it’s so easy to contemplate single words.

One can debate pros and cons. One can wax poetic or drip sarcasm on the scenario. Still, it sure is great that God gives us words.

God gives us words, He gives us His Word, and God gives us the Word. (I am totally going to avoid calling Jesus a single word because there’s probably all sorts of mischief and heresy just waiting for me otherwise. I may have even strayed into that by distinguishing between the means of grace and Jesus! Ack! :))

Praise God, from whom all blessings flow;

Praise Him, all creatures here below;

Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;

Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

  1. So true and makes me chuckle. Words are the best, The Word…even better.

  2. So interesting! I’ve noticed this trend, too, and have yet to participate. My hesitancy has more to do with my own difficulty with follow-through with things like this. Maybe that’s why I need it? haha
