I discovered that many writers/people make these spelling mistakes. Sometime this month, I was proofreading some clients’ works and noticed most of these misspellings:
A godsend✔A godsent❌
A godsent rain✔A godsend rain❌
• Now let’s take another look at what I did there:
A GODSEND✔A GODSENT❌
A GODSENT RAIN✔A GODSEND RAIN❌
GODSEND and GODSENT. Correct spellings.
CALENDAR and CALENDER. Correct spellings.
But these words shouldn’t be used interchangeably; they mean different things.
• Godsend is a noun which means a thing, person or event that happens unexpectedly, especially at a time when it is needed, as if sent by God.
• Her coming here was a Godsend.
• His gift of money was a Godsend.

• Godsent is an adjective that means sent by God or as if by God; unexpectedly beneficial.
• This money is a godsent gift.
• His coming into my life is godsent.
• This is a godsent rain.
• Calendar as a noun means a chart, series of pages or device showing the days, weeks, and months of a particular year, or giving particular seasonal information.
• Jide keeps staring at the Calendar on the wall.
• Mom said every phone has a Calendar.
• Calendar as a verb means to enter (something) in a calendar or timetable.
