Can you gossip if no one is around?

1 Chr 28:9 And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.

Ps 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:

Ps 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

Mt 9:4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?

Proverbs 11:13 A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.

Is it possible to gossip when you are alone? Can you gossip with God? It says in these and other verses that God knows our thoughts. So my question to you is this...
is it possible if you have gossipy (i know that isn't a word lol) thoughts about someone and don't voice them, are you gossiping with God? Do you think He likes when you do that?

Lord please guard my thoughts.

Phil 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
