We just started our fall Bible study at church. We are studying Me, Myself and Lies by Jennifer Rothschild - excellent! Words are so important, aren't they? We think words and we speak words and we can write words. We can't be too careful with our words. The old adage, "Sticks and stones may hurt my bones, but words can never hurt me" is a lie. Words hurt. Words wound. Many carry words in their heads that they heard years and years ago. Conversely, words can also heal - bring life and joy and encourage! My heart's desire is to speak wise words and kind words. Sometimes though, I speak without thinking, or I speak when I should be silent. Sometimes, I speak with kind intentions and my words still cause hurt. For this, I am very sorry. "Lord, let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable to You, my strength and my Redeemer."
