E is for Eek!


Eek! I would have not felt this good if I didn’t have an expergefacient!

Yes, our E word for today is EXPERGEFACIENT which means awakening.

Expergefacient made me realize these 5 things, among others:

1. I cannot please everyone but if I please the only One it is more than enough.

2. There is always something to laugh and cry about. I can choose!

3. In a relationship one can love more than the other. I can be the more loving one.

4. I am never alone. I can reach out. I can allow someone to reach me out.

5. Sometimes the best people to learn from isn’t the most intelligent or eloquent.

Now would you be sweet enough to share your EXPERGEFACIENT?

ENJOY your blessings!

You know that it grow EXPONENTIALLY if it is shared, right?

  1. My awakening? Each day I awaken once again to the fact that I can love, but I can’t out love God! 🙂

    Great post!

      And that is the truth Theresa! He loves us and provide us with blessings 24/7! And all we have to do is wake up, see it, and receive it?
      Now that’s unfair 🙂

  2. What a word for you to work with. Nicely handled. A post chock-full of wisdom. Many pats on the back for this one.

    Wow, where’d you get the word haha. Challenging huh..:)

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Eek is from a trapped mouse. Expergefacient is from my great great great Aunt Merriam Webster!

      Challenging and fun specially in finding inspiration in all the things that start with the letter of each day! Blessings to you 🙂

  5. Wow, this looks like an interesting challenge.. You have been progressing, I wonder if I am up to it.. *thinking*

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Interesting and an Expergefactor — I can’t sleep thinking about what to write on the next letter! 1/5 on the way — letter by letter I’ll reach Zzzzzz. Enjoy your day! 🙂

    Okay teacher Rea, you’ve out done yourself! And here is my expergefacient: “But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and that he will stand upon the earth at last. . .I shall see Him, not as a stranger, but as a friend. What a glorious hope!” Job 19:25-27 TLB
    Thank you for awakening us to so many good things!

    • bendedspoon Says:

      As a friend? Woot I like that! I really do! So much! God will hear what a battologist I am in my gratefulness that He is my superbestesttothemax friend — who won’t frown on my quirkiness! I love love love love Him!

      Thank you so much best friend Deb for that Expergefacient — I’m awake and jumping! 🙂

    Thank you, Princess 🙂

    This is a brand new one for me. Thanks for sharing!!


  8. Wait.. you’re already on E! I feel so behind!

    #2 is really powerful. It took me a long time to realise that I have a choice about how I feel.

    • bendedspoon Says:

      No worries you can easily catch up — 2 letters a day?
      Yes, we have a choice — not to blame anyone for what we are feeling. Hard but when learned it’s Exciting — I can be happy today, weeee! Blessings to you 🙂

    Wow,’spoon’…I am building my vocabulary reading your alphabet posts! I have never heard of this word…and if I were in a spelling bee I would have just sat down! 🙂 Thanks for a great post! Can’t wait to find out what tomorrow’s word is going to be! 🙂

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Me too! If this will make you sit down then looks like you will quit tomorrow! But don’t worry we will prepare for the next spelling bee. Hugs 🙂

  10. Expergefacient describes the moment that I realized that God knew everything there is to know about me – everything I have ever thought, said, or done, and everything I will ever think, say, or do – and still He loves me enough to die so that we could be together forever. On that day my soul was awakened and it will never slumber again. Peace, Linda

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Eek! You are a great host for visiting me for each letter! Now I am motivated to continue and check if I’ll see you up to Z!
      Blessings to you! 🙂

  13. Such a word, no wonder there will be an awakening 🙂
    Well, my awakening for today is that no matter how much you try escape fate, fate always finds you and it’s up to you if you will greet it with a grin or a smile, I choose the smiles 🙂 sending some to you too.

    • bendedspoon Says:

      True! You can’t pronounce it while half sleep! And yes I wasn’t able to escape Jingle Poetry when you found me. Thank you so much Blaga for your support and for the smiles too! 🙂

  14. Nice! And I am going to remember that word for scrabble!
