A Word I Don’t Like


OK, that new weather word “derecho” is officially getting on my nerves.  It’s a new catch phrase being used with alarming frequency by the Weather Channel and Accuweather clans.  Part of my annoyance with this word is that for the first two days I told people about it, I was mispronouncing it.  I said, “DEH-ri-ko.”  Evidently it is a much more sophisticated word, “deh-RAY-cho.”  Live and learn.  The other thing that’s bugging me about this word is that it is a pretty big, scary straight line wind storm, and they keep saying it may head our way.

I think I will stop thinking about this word now, and think instead on my refuge, my safe harbor in any storm, my rock.  “For my soul trusts in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, until these calamities have passed by.”  -Psalm 57:1  Yes, the storms will come and go, but Jesus remains the same forever.  Wherever you are today, pray, stay safe, and trust in God, your refuge.  Blessings, Lisa

    • You are welcome…I needed it too. A lot of times I write to remind myself of things that I lose track of. Have a blessed day. 🙂 Lisa

  1. Guess what? I don’t like it either. But since I don’t know how to say it, and I don’t know what it is, I ignore it. That works for me. (Even as the straight line wind blows me away.)

    • I’m sorry to be the one to have to introduce it to you. I tell you what, just pretend you never heard it and you can go back to happy oblivion. 🙂 Have a good weekend, Lisa

I welcome your thoughts...
