We have passed a church sign several times that I have wondered about. It was a Ladies Meeting at a church that said: Victoriously Frazzled. It hit me this morning ~It looks like those two words are on opposite ends. I mean, how in the world can you be frazzled and in victory at the same time. I looked up the word frazzled and did not find it. I figured it must have come from the word Fray. If you have a better definition, let me know. The word Fray means : a fight, noisy quarrel. Does that sound like like you are victorious? I don't know but ! Another definition means make or become ragged or worn along the edge. Hmm! Have you ever been frazzled? I was, just yesterday. I wrote a post and spent some time on it. I finally had it like I wanted and hit publish and my post had completely disappeared. I said out loud, "What in the world happened? " Then I realized I was talking to myself? I shut the computer off and went to bed before I started answering myself. Then I thought I might have posted it on the KJV blog. Got up, went to computer, pulled it up and found nothing. I was glad in one way, but yet it was a good post, or so I thought. If anyone sees my post, let me know! Then I get frazzled when I want to do something and things don't work right. Guess the older you get the more worn around the edges you become. Fray also mention two more words: wear away and rub! Anyone ever rub you the wrong way? Do you feel victoriously at that moment? Victorious means: Having won a battle, conquering. Do you feel frazzled when you are victorious? Wait! You might just feel like you were rubbed or just a little ragged around the edges from the battle. You might even feel you are wearing away. But you have still have won the battle. 'Reckon we could tie that in some way? I have no idea. Wish I knew someone that was at that Ladies meeting. I just know at times we get frazzled and at times we are victorious. But to be Victoriously Frazzled? Guess it means after the battle you are a conqueror. I know they have to be tied in somehow. Just something to think about.
