Today, I present you with another installment of Unconscious Mutterings. It's a low stress, basic word association meme. Feel free to play along if you like. I haven't done one of these in a while. Thought it might be fun, and it was ... for me.
She said ... and I thought ... ?
Being a "churchy" person, the first thing that I think of is the grace of God that he extends to the people of the world. It reminds me to extend grace to other people when they might be having a rough time. It makes me imagine a world where people extended grace to each other instead of just waiting for an opportunity to jump down someone else's throat. That's a world that I want to live in.
Since the only person that I can control is me (theoretically), I just have to remember to be that small stone that's thrown in the pond. Perhaps, the faint ripples I create will have no effect at all. Maybe, they'll be the difference between life and death for someone who's hanging on the edge or anything in between. And the funny part is that I'll never know. But God does.
All I can think of is taking one for this word. Or more precisely that I don't have to take one tomorrow morning, so I won't have to get up quite so early on Sunday morning. Ah, enjoying the simple pleasures because sometimes they're all you've got. ;)
4. PurpleLYRICS ...
Start wearing purple wearing purple
Start wearing purple for me now
All your sanity and wits they will all vanish
I promise, it's just a matter of time...
(I promise there are no bad words in this song. They're a few lines in Ukrainian.)
Nope ... I really don't have anything for this one.
This meme is brought to you by the number 3 and the letters X, Y, and Z.
With all the rain we've had, you wouldn't think so, but my car could really do with a good wash. ;)
Hmmm ... don't have much for this one either. All I can say is that I'm not. I could make something up, but perhaps it's better that I didn't. lol
Yup, I need one. I don't have a clue. LOL
I have always wondered what the phrase, "Discretion is the better part of valor" really means. I mean, I know what I've always thought it meant, but that mostly came from context. And, I don't know that they were using it correctly.
This is interesting. This is what I found at the FreeDictionary.com under idioms:
Proverb: It is good to be brave, but it is also good to be careful.; If you are careful, you will not get into situations that require you to be brave. Discretion is the better part of valor.
Well, those folks that I was listening to ... I think that they (or I) missed some of the nuances of the phrase.
And that is the end of today's lesson. ;)
