My husband is a really smart man–very wise, indeed. But Richie will be the first to tell you, he’s not a great speller. I don’t like to brag, but I’m really not bad at it myself. Of course, I doubt anyone will ever really know that for sure since I have a lot of great editors—and especially because spell-check is a thing.
But even though I’m a decent speller, every once in awhile I have a total brain meltdown and completely forget how to spell a word that I’ve spelled a zillion times. Has that ever happened to you?
It happened recently–on the word COLUMNIST. No matter how I typed it, it didn’t look right. One L, Two L’s, Two M’s, an MB–column, columnist, COMMUNIST–no wait, that last one couldn’t be right, could it? How in tarnation could I BE a columnist and forget how to spell it?
Every now and then we have to do a little life-check like that. Something that’s always been right before is challenged by someone who has a new idea and suddenly you find yourself wondering if what’s always been right before could somehow be wrong.
But God’s truth is always truth. We can know now and forever that no matter what anyone else says, what God’s Word says is now and always will be T-R-U-E. I may write a column about that this week. And by the way, I’m a C-O-L-U-M-N-I-S-T. Yeah, a columnist. NOT a communist.
