good words about words

I have recently read two blog posts about the words you speak. One written by my friend, Marie, and the other by a pastor, Joe McKeever.  Both have wonderful messages about words. Messages that I need to hear over and over again.

The messages are clear …
First, never forget that words have power – power to harm or to heal. Second, never hesitate to ask someone to forgive you and be very thankful for “short memories” and forgiving people.

My take away from these two posts. First, I pray that the words I speak are always meant to bring healing, but I know that I fail – regularly. And second, when I do fail, I pray that my friends (and anyone else I come in contact with) will extend a little grace.

I wish I could link to one of the songs from our VBS that will be coming this summer … it is all about being wise with our words.

I kind of get the feeling that God is trying to tell me something...

I'm being short on grace, aren't I?

And yet, in my determination to make sure no moment lacked the sound of my voice, I prated on and on.

Honestly, I was only directing these words to myself! I thought that maybe writing them here would make me think before I speak!

Yeah, that one got to me, too!
