The title of this post leads me to ask: How do you pronounce "meme?" Is it "mee-mee" or "meem?" I always say it "meem," but I realize I have never heard this word spoken aloud except by Debbie at Like a Rose, so Debbie and I ask you, O Experienced Memers, "How do you say it?"
Kelly at Girl on a Mission tagged me for this mmm .... eem. Mee. eem.

Book: The Life You've Always Wanted by John Ortberg, my new favorite author. We just finished this in a monthly book study that Debbie and I go to called Women of Influence. Great book; I highly recommend it.
The first two sentences of the three are a quotation of Bonhoeffer:
Often we combat our evil thoughts most effectively if we absolutely refuse to allow them to be expressed in words .... It must be a decisive rule of every Christian fellowship that each individual is prohibited from saying much that occurs to him.
This behavior flies in the face of the conventional wisdom today, when saying, 'everything that occurs to you' is taken as an essential component of mental health.
Bonus sentence because it's good: But sometimes this 'ministry of the closed mouth' is a victory for the kingdom.
I cannot bring myself to tag people because I'm so bad at responding to tags and awards. Shameful. If you'd like to play, let me know in your comment.
