Talking Dash

1985 Ninty Eight Regency Oldsmobile in Blue
When I forget to turn off my car lights, or remove my keys from the ignition there is a warning bell that alerts me that I have forgotten something.

The other day, I was reading about security systems, and Alarms, when something caused me to remember a car we once had with a talking dash. 

It was a Wine colored 1985 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency Sedan, a really cool car, roomy and better on gas than our previous vehicle.

"Your keys are in the ignition, your lights are on, your door is not shut,” are the words that came forth to remind us to fix it.

One thing that it did not say, was “Good Morning, or Have a nice day. 

As I thought more about a devise that reminds us to correct an error in judgment, I considered that we all have that silent alarm within us, that when it is heeded will save us a lot of trouble.

If you are like me, you probably speak first and repent later, but I am still learning.

 Psalms 141:3  Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.

  1. Yes, you are right:) Good to have God's words to reminds us if we go astray!

  2. I'm still learning too, Hazel. And that is a great analogy... We're all in this together...

  3. Thanks! This is a great, wise lesson today :)

  4. I love this analogy! Yes - we need to remember to listen to that voice...99% of the time, when I had this inner warning and didn't listen, I lived to regret it A LOT! I'm learning, too!!

  5. Yes! Love the talking car! It would be lovely if I heeded God's warnings more often to keep my mouth shut. I'm still learning!

  6. Okay, so I've only just met you Hazel, and you already know me so well; speak first and repent later! That's me. Psalms 141:3 is my prayer.
