SoCS: May 7th

Today’s prompt: ‘a phrase you grew up with’

The first one that came to mind when I read this week’s prompt:

“Speak the truth and shame the devil.”

This common saying recorded by preacher, Hugh Latimer, dates
back to year 1555.

It’s a belief I’ve practiced my entire life. which backfired a few times
leaving me thinking why I didn’t conceal the truth.

I’m thankful to God that I maintained that persona and passed it down
to my children.

Today I can look in the mirror. wrinkles and all, and know I followed the
Lord’s guidelines.

The adverse effect of not telling the truth could result in lots of confusion.
miscommunication and hurtful feelings towards friends and loved ones.

Also, as we age our memory recall changes (not for the better).

If you tell the truth, the truth remains the same and no need to wonder
about words and comments.

Observation: Good Faith Versus Deception

Alas no degree

Blogger’s fun
Write posts pen poems

Preference all time
Quality o’er quantity

Pondering reason
Certain folk fan count excess

Assets minus liabilities
Formula owner’s equity

Blogger’s ratio question
Move forward calculations

Post receives 30 likes

Aware certain social media apps
A fee able follower count increase

Google search reveal manner

Deceptions adding paid-for numbers

All wish be numero uno
Followed liked ‘n well known

Best practice earn those followers
Sad learn exist patterns elusive near

Practice to deceive only individual hurt is self.
