day 2639: Punctuating

“My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed.

We might as well be in the age of punctuation. Social media might have done it to us with the short form limited amount of characters.  Or it might be that we just can’t seem to make our point loud enough any more without invoking some form of making ourselves stand out.   Whatever it is, we are punctuating more than ever.  Notice what the newsletter Quartz points out about movie titles. “A lot more punctuation & special characters. The typical movie title in the 1980s had 0.13 punctuation marks and special characters… but in the 2010s these doubled to 0.25. There are an increasing number of movies with not just one, but two punctuation marks! Take, for example, John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum and Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again!”  Are we punctuating enough about what we have to offer, or too much?

We can feel free to punctuate and exclaim who is our Lord and Savior! There aren’t enough exclamation points to capture what He has done for us so let’s follow Thomas’ examples and stop doubting and start exclaiming.
