I don't know if I have mentioned this before but misspelled words BUG me. Particularly words that take on a whole new meaning when misspelled. I'm not claiming to be an editor or a grammar teacher, it just bothers me when context is lost...though it does make more sense how we struggle to understand the Bible...when we can't even master our own language.
Rather than rant and rave (or in addition to), let me just show you.
I am going to the store.
I am going too the store.
I am to tired.
I am too tired.
This belt is loose.
This belt is lose.

But there is one word that I believe we have misspelled as a society. The word is History.
I was sitting in church last week and the preacher was talking about history with regards to our role in history. He reminded us what a small speck we are in the GIGANTIC picture of Universal history. He reminded us that sometimes we attempt to conform history to our own story, but ultimately we are called to be part of God's story.
It dawned on me this what it's all about...HIS-STORY.
Talk about an 'aha' moment!
Speaking as someone with little to no interest in traditional history lessons, to think of it in terms of HISSTORY, makes it much more relevant and pertinent to my own life as I find my place in HISSTORY.
I hope you have a Hisstory making day!
