Basically, thoughts are the product of the thinking process centered in one's brain. A thought may be singular or, oftentimes collective to form ideas, sometimes reaching the composition level. On the morality scale, thoughts can range downward to the pre-meditated wickedly evil zone or upward to Holy Spirit-filled beauty.
May the following descriptions raise acknowledgements and emotions in your mind:
1. FLEETING thoughts - come and go, rapidly, often not remembered because of the speed with which they pass through the mind.
2. FLICKERING thoughts - rapidly oscillating also - with hopes of forming an idea, seldom successfully.
3. FLUTTERING thoughts - akin to women, methinks hehehe - all over the place, floating and pausing, darting regularly.
4. FLASHING thoughts - ON and OFF all day longs. Hard to get rid off. Like to reappear and the most inopportune times.
Can ruin your lunch!
5. FLAMING thoughts - varying degrees of 'hotness,' as in anger - usually, but not always self-destructive.
6. FLABBERGASTING thoughts - Where did THAT thought come from? I don't believe I even came up with that thought! Not my usual way of thinking...
7. FLOPPING thoughts - These FLOP right down in front of you with a sandwich and a soda - preparing to STAY AWHILE. In-your-face kind of thoughts. Not easy to remove from one's consciousness.
8. FLAUNTING thoughts - "I'm better than him/her." "I have much better clothes than she has. "My job is so much better than his." "God has blessed me more than them." It's best to keep these kinds of thoughts to oneself. Usually UGLY, POMPOUS, and SELFISH when expresses in words.
9. FLOWING thoughts - many thoughts collecting and working together to form an idea or many ideas.
10. FLOATING thoughts - collected together on a liquid medium - like oil spills - they tend to 'hang around' for long periods of time. "I got a lot on my mind today."
11. FLANKING thoughts - From whence did it come? The right side or the left side. The famous BLINDSIDE thought.
They like to ATTACK when you are enjoying yourself.
12. FLOWERING thoughts - Budded thoughts that bloom into beautiful flowers, usually cherished by others. Not many of these around nowadays. Headed for the 'extinct' list---a casualty of our pressure-cooker world.
13. FLYING thoughts - Elevated mood thoughts - they get UP there and soar and glide - resulting in positive, wholesome ideas. Much desired type of thinking.
14. FLOURISHING thoughts - a seed thought---> Stem-builders---> Healthy leaves---> Priceless Fruit; Over and over! Most of all, these approach the plan of God for human life.
