We keep the newspaper's crossword puzzle on our table, and throughout the day(s) we take turns working on it. I'm not good at starting them. I step in when partial words or phrases have already been filled in.
My husband has to wait until words can be cross-checked. I don't wait for such foolishness; I just fill in what seems to make sense to me. He likes to claim he thought of the word before me, but he was waiting for "proof."
Admittedly, sometimes I come up with some wild guesses, but I do get the answers right now and again. I like to brag that I always swoop in and save the day. I claim I accomplish what others cannot, or at least I lead the way.
But, as my husband uniquely put it the other day, "Your unusual thought pattern breaks things loose sometimes."
I'm taking that as a compliment. Wouldn't you?
Anyway, I'm sticking with my method, because even Psalm 37, supports me:
"Commit to the LORD your way;
trust in him, and he will act.
He will make justice dawn for you like the light;
bright as the noonday shall be your vindication."
I'm committing to my way, knowing that someday, justice will prevail, and I will be vindicated.
Who's with me?
