Word Nerd: Seraphic

Word Nerd Header Apr 2016 via LaWhimsy


Seraphic Word Nerd via LaWhimsySeraphic is a term that derives from the word Seraphim (which is an angelic being of the highest order associated with light, ardor, and purity.). To be seraphic is to be ecstatic, rapturous, ethereal, joyful, purely radiant – you know, all of those blissful terms that could so easily be applied to love, whether it be a love of life, a romantic whirlwind, or any other form of that divine emotion. I really adore using the term seraphic as a descriptive, since it helps create such a wonderful imagery. I also strive to be seraphic, even if it’s only in small, everyday sorts of ways.
