James 3:10Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing.

This morning when I got up, I noticed that I had one voice mail on my phone.

As I listened, the voice on my phone message started singing these words,

“I just called to say ‘I love you,’ I just called to say how much I care.”

I stood in the kitchen-

eyes closed,


just feeling the warmth and love of this friend’s words and how much they meant to me as I begin another day of life without Nick.

What a simple yet thoughtful way to lift someone’s spirit!

Then as I came down to the tv room to have my quiet time and begin working on some of the things on my “to do” list, I sat here and thought about the power of words.

How things can roll so easily off of our tongues every day…and yet how much power they hold.

We can truly bless or curse by simply opening our mouths.

Our words are powerful.

Praying that as I speak today, I will speak blessings on my friends and my family.

Praying the same for you.
