There is an old children’s chant that goes “sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me”. We all said on the playground when some guy define our family or or size of the noses or our vocals or how our houses run, but even then I think we know it wasn’t true. Words do hurt and even sometimes more than sticks and stones, and wounds from them can last lifetime. Words are powerful. However, Positive affirming words are powerful too. Encouraging words can vanish self doubts in life like sunlight breaking down through the fog. Hopeful words can dispel fear, yes inspire the concavity of ugly pessimistic degrading sounds. The words of Jesus, the lyrics of love, the eternal messages of everlasting life bathe a breaking heart like warm healing bond.
Sometimes we ask ourselves, ” Does loving living Jesus hear us?”
A small baby walked down the aisle and sat on my feet. I held her close to my heart and I could feel the joy as she looked into my eyes with a benignant smile. she looked calm comfortable and hunky dory. Soon she was asleep on my arms.
At one time we were children. Halcyon and joyful in the arms of our parents, with no worries about tomorrow, with all the nature all around. It is true life must change. I have learned to say,
” Today like an eagle I will race,
I will race above the stars,
Above the stars I will spread my wings,
My wings will fly me into brighter sun,
In the sun I will shine brighter than stars,,
And go beyond my wildest dreams.
Today I will smile and be happy,
Today I will do my best part,
Today I will be kind,
Today not tomorrow!
