Be kind with our words
And they came without a thought
Then I saw the pain and anguish
That my bitter words had brought.
Bitter words that I had spoken
Made me think back through the past;
Of how many times I’d uttered
Biting words whose pain would last.
Then I wondered of the people
I had hurt by things I said;
All the ones I had discouraged
When I didn’t use my head.
Then I thought about my own life,
Of painful words I’ve heard
And of the times I’ve been discouraged
By a sharp and cruel word.
And now clearly I remember
All the things I might have done;
But, by awordI was discouraged
And they never were begun.
Lord, help my words be silver Boxes,
Neatly wrapped up with a bow;
That I give to all so freely,
As through each day I gladly go.
Silver Boxes full of treasure,
Precious gifts from God above;
That all the people I encounter
Might have a box of God’s own love.
Taken from the book of “Silver Boxes – a gift of encouragement” by Florence Littauer.
My word for today is “WORDS!”
I plan to spend my life with a heart filled with joy and kind words.
Within my heart and mind
of things so long ago
of things I’ve left behind.
Of people I have loved
and lost along the way….
the spirit still lives on,
the love is here to stay.
It only takes a moment,
to restore what used to be,…
like footprints in the sand
they’ve left their mark on me.
forever they will be….
ingrained upon my heart,
where love resides in me.
I devote these words to special people who have touched my life and moved on,who have grown up and made a new life for themselves, who have died but still live in my memory.
