I love words. Verbs especially! Adjectives color the world for me.
Words let me look back in time, ahead in time. Words bring back the fragrance of an orange blossom, the memory of Becky’s smile, or the children touching a fawn in the Smokey Mountains. The Word of God allow me to look into the mind of God and His glorious wisdom. His love overwhelms me and I read His Word.
The words of good people encourage me. Often Fran Johnson’s words of encouragement surface unbidden in my thoughts. Fran died over thirty years ago, but her words live on. They were not profound or poetic but they persuaded me to pursue the purpose of God for my life.
Did your words encourage those who heard them today?
“Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.” Ephesians 4:29 (NLT)
Peace and Joy!
