IT’S ONLY WORDS
As I wend my way around blogland meeting and greeting, there are times when I just can't find the right thing to say. I read some blogs and they are great, some are happy, some are sad. Some are funny, some are cute. It is so hard to find something original to say and not sound trite. Should I say nothing rather than just words for the sake of commenting? Should I leave just a smile or a hug. Ronan keating has a song that goes: You say it best when you say nothing at all. If I go away without leaving a comment will you think I didn't visit and didn't care? What do you think? I leave you with this:
"A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver," and, "An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up" (Proverbs 12:25; 25:11, NIV).
One of my favorite songs sung by the Bee Gees a number of years ago went something like this: "It's only words and words are all I have to take your heart away."
Words can be a force far beyond their weight, and can have an impact far beyond their immediate reach. With words we can make people laugh—or cry; respond positively—or negatively; draw people closer to us—or drive them away. With words we can inspire people to noble acts of kindness or, if we are so inclined, to evil deeds of wickedness.
Never forget the impact your words can have on those you love the most and those who are closest to you—and even on strangers.
"An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up,"
Words spoken may soon pass away
and forgotten be,
but when spoken in love and kindness
are like beautiful flowers,
and even though they fade and die
from conscious memory,
their fragrance lives on
embedded in the deeper mind-
