AYBTT? Do you know what that means in texting language? If not, then the answer is yes! AYBTT is the texting abbreviation equivalent of “Are You Behind the Times” and according to most experts, most adults are way behind the times when it comes to texting abbreviations.

Most of us have probably figured out by now that IDK means I Don’t Know, AWK means awkward, & BTW means by the way. However, avid texters these days have a language of their own; for example, IMHO means In My Humble Opinion, IRL means In Real Life. Plus a thousand other abbreviations most of us will never learn.

Here is an an ACROSTIC that I think we can all pick up on today and every day. “G-R-A-C-E,” which spells GRACE, but more importantly means “God’s Riches at Christ’s Expense.”

Jesus put it this way, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

Now that is some great news. After all Y-O-L-O, which means you “You Only Live Once!”

So, HABD-Have a Blessed Day!
