The Power of Words

Have you ever stopped to think about the power of words? Depending on how they are used, words can
  • weave endless webs of confusion.
  • form walls to hide behind.
  • come between us like coils of razor wire.
  • create fear and mistrust.
Or they can
  • encourage others to dare new things.
  • comfort a broken heart.
  • build bonds of friendship.
  • teach eternal truths.
  • break shackles of fear.
These things are true of all words, whether spoken or written. Your stories will show what's in your heart, so before you decide about sharing a story, look into your heart. If you find anger, fear, hurt, and other darkness, showing it to others may not have a good outcome. When your heart is brimming with respect, gratitude, understanding and love, your stories will touch hearts with soft wings.

Keep in mind that like spoken words can never be unsaid, written words can never be unread. Use the power of your words with discretion and write a legacy of love.
