If I were ever to go to Alaska, I would go to view the Northern Lights. They amaze me! I’d just snoozle on over there. Probably have to take a plane, train, boat, and snow machine(snow mobile to the locals) to get there.
I like to dream of fixing up my old home, so I watch lots of Fixer Upper television programs. Shows about building.
Building Alaska is one that is always entertaining. At the very least, for its lingo. For example, skeeter dope is bug spray. A butter knife is a chain saw. An Alaska scratch pad is a 2x8x8 chunk of wood you write stuff on. A gandy dancer is anyone walking on a log that is unsafe. And my all-time favorite is snoozle. Used as a noun it means any poking device or as a verb it means any type of movement. Snoozle on over here and bring me that snoozle. 🙂
The words we use define who we are. Just like those building in Alaska. Let’s all use words that build each other up instead of tear each other down. Words that are appropriate for the situation we are in. In the end, we will all be accountable for our words, let’s keep them tender. You wouldn’t want to have to use a butter knife to have to cut them now would you? 🙂
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
Love and laughter,
