I wanted to say hello and welcome to my blog. Thank you for visiting. I hope that through my weekly (at minimum) posts I can encourage you and maybe sometimes cause you to stop and think about the inspiration and influence God has on your life by sharing how He impacts mine.
Today I read a wonderful blog post by an author who talked about words and their power. She was right. We have all heard “sticks and stone may break your bones, but words will never hurt you”.
Has someone every said something critical to you or about you? And I’m not referring to something said in the sense of edification, but the mean, petty, vindictive sense. Those words cut. The wounds heal, but if the comment came from someone you love and/or trust, the slice reaches deep. Your heart will heal but there will always be a scar that bears witness to the injury.
Remember that when you lose patience with someone and your manner is curt, it’s a lot easier to not have said something than to have to ask for forgiveness from the wounded party and God.
The power of words: As a writer, I strive to use them in a manner that touches you, amuses you, and makes you have an “ahhhh” moment like when you bite into a piece of warm chocolate lava cake. I hope you have many moments like that. After all, they’re calorie free. <grin>
God’s blessings and mercy on you.
