Doing It Wrong

I do everything wrong. I brush my teeth before I eat breakfast. I don’t clean the shower immediately after showering, I wait till I can see that it needs it then scrub-scrub-scrub. I do it wrong.

I don’t check the oil in my car till the “check engine” light glares at me from the instrument panel. I do it wrong.

I check the air in the tires, but if one is low I say “good enough for this trip.” I check the air by kicking the tires. I do it wrong. One time I drove on a low tire so long somebody passing by said “you have a flat tire!” I said “ no, it’s only low.” They shook their head and kept going. I do that wrong. Knowing I have a low tire(s) I came out one morning, checking them I found they were all up and ok – I thought my eyes were doing it wrong, too.

I have the right theology but I probably do that wrong too. Sometimes I can almost see God shake his head at me the way my pappy used to. But I never heard Him actually say “You’re doing it wrong” so maybe I can skate by on that one.

I thought I was blogging right, or at least ok, but somebody came by and told me I was doing it wrong.

Guess I’ll go outside and check the tires.

Retired and On sabbatical (again, but not quite). More info available in 'About Me' on my site page.(There is a small square box with three little dots inside, on the upper right hand side of every blog page,at the right side of title banner. Click on those dots to take you to a "hidden" site page with more info provided by me, including "follow" button and "About me." I didn't design this thing.It came as-is.)Also WP has a mandatory banner at the bottom of the screen about privacy and cookies policy that blocks the visibility of a "follow" button that pops up under a "close and accept' of the privacy agreement. You have to click the 'close and accept to see the follow button. Things are becoming more complicated to navigation with hidden activations and complex instructions. Life and technology is like that. If something seems simple you're probably doing it wrong. But I'm left-handed so maybe it's just me.

    1. You are so right, Jennifer! After boxing so many shadows I now only engage battle when I’m pushed all the way up the hill and my back is resting against the cross. 🙂
