Mind your language

11the younger generation just love to mimic..music, dance moves, and most obvious slangs.

But my dearly beloved, may i caution you to at least look up the word first before using it. IF the word is vulgar.....It not only taint your image but also give the hearers a very bad impression of a Christian. A BAD TESTIMONY!

Take for example this word that is so often on the mouth of youngsters, using it to mean "nonsense' and another to imply "very"

The words "Cr*p" & "d*rn"

and the dictionary gives you:

if you've got dreams in your heart why don't you share them with me? and if dreams don't come true i'll make sure that your nightmares are through if you've got pain in your heart why don't you share it with me? and we'll just wait and see if it's half of what it used to be and lay it down slow lay it down free lay it down easy but lay it on me if you've got love in your heart why don't you keep it with mine? i can't promise a miracle but i'll always be trying and lay it down slow lay it down free lay it down easy but lay it on me lay it down easy lay it on me lay it down easy but lay it on me
