Dear Marla -

I love this one, Isaac! Thanks for sharing. I already asked you a question at the beginning of the summer, but I have another one. I know you love words. (I do too!!) Do you have a list (a mental list or a real one) of your favorites?

Would you be able to share your 5 favorite words (and a brief sentence about why you like it so much)? And if you can't narrow it down to 5 (or 5 is too many), then 3 or 7 or 10 are great too!!

Thank you!! 

Hello Marla,
I will tell you five of my favorite words that I use.
No. 1 Exhilarating. It means excited. I like to use this word to describe movies and many other things. No. 2 Lustrous. It means shiny. So you could describe something shiny as lustrous. No. 3 Utterly. Meaning total. The room was utter darkness, that is another way of saying the room was total darkness. No. 4 Exorbitantly, meaning extremely. I learned this word  recently and I now like to say that (my) room is exorbitantly messy instead of what I used to say. No. 5 this word is commonly used but I love it. PERFECT is the word. Everyday I come home from school and my parents ask, "How was your day?", I answer "My day was perfect!"  Thanks for asking, hope you were intrigued by my paragraph.


  1. Isaac!! This was PERFECT!! I was utterly intrigued. Thanks so much!! And I know you didn't ask, but here are my Top 5 (in no particular order):

    1. pilgrimage
    2. sojourner
    3. kingdom
    4. global
    5. simplicity

  2. Isaac, this is your best post ever. I wish you would be in my class!

  3. That your day is perfect is a huge idea. Most people focus on drilling down on the imperfections. If we truly believe that this is the day that the LORD has made (let us rejoice and be glad in it), then it IS perfect because God gave it to us, right? No matter what. Still, some "perfect" days are harder than others.


Hi! I'm Isaac. Ask me anything!
