Yes, that’s me. I have been known lovingly as a grammar nerd, a grammar cop, and even the grammar nazi by my honey. I get it, it’s difficult to type everything out in texts or even from your phone to Facebook, but when a reputable news source starts making grammatical errors, I start getting “grinchy”. And sure, I’m not perfect, but I appreciate when basic grammatical rules are followed. If you ever find any basic errors on this website, please feel free to correct me!
A short lesson:
it’s = it is
its = possessive form of “it” (referring to something that belongs to “it”)
there = refers to location (There it is!)
they’re = they are
their = possessive form of they (belonging to them)
your = possessive form of you (belonging to you)
you’re = you are
two = the number 2
to = preposition used before a noun or verb as an infinitive (We are going to the store. We are going to leave now.)
too = also (I love you, too.)
who’s = who is
whose = possessive form of who/whom
These are the few that were at the top of my mind today. Which bother you the most?
To relieve some stress from my mind, here are a few graphics from someecards and one from Piccsy.
Does bad grammar bother you? Which grammatical errors bug you the most?
Today is Good Friday, the day all Christians commemorate the passion and death of our Lord, Jesus Christ. What He did on the cross was THE ultimate act of love, so let us remember today and always that we are NOTHING without Him. He was perfect in every way, never having sinned even once, and He willingly allowed Himself to be nailed to the cross for your sins, for my sins, for the sins of the entire world, past, present, and future. That’s what Love really means.
Lord, You are all that is good, our Creator, and our Redeemer. We are sorry for the sins we have committed that nailed You to the cross. Words cannot express the gratitude we have for Your sacrifice. Thank you, Lord Jesus. Please help us to always appreciate the gift of Your grace, and keep us close to You always. Amen.
Here’s a free printable to help us remember what Love really is.
