New and Improved Exclamations!

New and Improved Exclamations!

My 14 year old daughter is lovable and care-free and quirky and nerdy, and she constantly cracks me up with her observations about life.

For instance, recently she was wondering where the common exclamations that are used today came from.

"Why do people use 'good grief' or 'good night' or 'goodness' as exclamations? Where did those come from?"

She thought she could do much better than those with these Bible-based exclamations. They are simple to use. Just insert them any place you would use one of the above exclamations.

Rachel's ugly sister!

"Rachel's ugly sister, it's raining hard!"

Rahab's red rope!

"Rahab's red rope! Did you see that bear?!"

Gouge my eyes out and call me Samson!

"Well, gouge my eyes out and call me Samson! You made it to church on time for once!"

We're thinking these will be all the rage once they catch on.

Remember, friends, you heard them here first.

  1. well smear my coat with blood and throw me in a well, those are awesome!

  2. Those will definitely be passed on to our 9 and 6 year old boys!! Hysterical! :)

  3. The second one has a Narnianesque ring, it just need a preposition in the front… “By Rahab’s red rope, I never expected to see a bear here!”

  4. I think she’s my favorite.
    Here’s one for her book – “Balaam’s Talking Donkey !”

  5. I’ll get started working on getting them going from my end of the country. :)

  6. Hehee… This reminds me of earlier this year in our history studies. Our children were heard around the house exclaiming, “Great Britain!” and “Holy Roman Empire!” I read your daughter’s biblical expressions to my crew and we all had a good laugh! :)

    Like the Samson one! She’s very creative. =)

  8. Gouge out my eyes and call me Zedekiah also works.

    These made me laugh! I do think I’ll avoid using Rachel’s ugly sister…because there are two girls in my family and my sister is named Rachel, so if you do the math…that leaves me ugly. 😀
