This is a true statement. Not often but it happens. Usually under my breath but nonetheless.
Like tonight for example. It just slipped out.Accidentally of course.
That “dog gone”computer…
I had lost everything I had just so eloquently written. Gone. Like in Cyber Space somewhere. I was no longer feeling eloquent. I was feeling, well, a wee bit ,exasperated with myself so I cussed a little..
I’m pretty sure that I guilt shamed myself with a few choice words before I came to my senses.
To think that I used to take such pride in keeping the scripture in Ephes.4:29 mounted up on the wall,above my phone,which was back in the day, mounted on the wall too. Imagine that!
I think its time to apply those words of great faith again.
“Let no unwholesome word proceed out of your mouth but only such a word as is good fore edification according to the need of the moment so that it will give grace to those who hear.”
Easy peasy, right?
Not in the real world where the “F” word is common place and our language skills have been reduced to the ways of technology.
Seriously, until these “dag gum”computers (i.e. our hand help mini computers, our phones)became the way of communicating, of writing and basically the way of life,I don’t recall screaming at my phone like I sometimes do now!
Please tell me I’m not the only one that has succumbed to this kind of trash talk.
I’ve been known to throw a computer in the trash, hide it in my trunk, like I couldn’t find it, LOL,swear I wasn’t going to succumb to this new communicating style etc. You could ask my children. I was like a dinosaur and proud of it.And let me tell you, you’d never find me texting.How rude…
Seems that’s all I do anymore.
Now I find myself, talking to my phone,texting,often being gravely misunderstood by that dam* Siri ,with her choice interpretations that she displays on my screen! Things I did NOT or intend to say, often appear and I sometimes,without reviewing the Siri script,push send.
I may cuss a little but I love Jesus.
Does it mean I love Jesus any less. Not at all. He gets me and loves me all the same…
