970. In the world of words, the imagination is one of the forces of nature. ~Wallace Stevens

Words can sometimes, in moments of
grace, attain the quality of deeds.

Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble. ~Yehuda Berg

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. ~Colossians 3:17   ✝

    • Thanks, Wendy. I love the potential too. Sometimes I get stuck at first trying to get started, but then once I get that spark of an idea, the words fill the page or pages up quickly. I don’t think I could ever write a novel like you have and are, but my muse and I have found our niche. I love your idea about writing a Bible verse at the top of the page and then letting the Word fill your heart and take you on a journey. Blessings and hugs to you as well, dear Wendy. 🙂 ❤

  1. How right you are Natalie. Words can hurt more than physical blows, and that pain can last a lifetime.
    Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow, my dear friend. Hugs, A.

    • Thank you, Angie. Indeed words can be very hurtful and for sure they can last a life time. I cope almost every day with some very hurtful words spoken over me as a child, and I’m 73 years old. So I believe it’s imperative that we be very careful with the words we speak. Happy Thanksgiving to you too, my dear friend. Love, N 🙂 ❤ xoxoxoxo

  2. Words are powerful, especially those spoken to ourselves and others. And I’m swinging back to where I would rather give or receive loving actions than loving words. I believe it’s too easy to speak nice words without doing anything to make the world a better place so I’m working on demonstrating my intentions in action.
    hugs and Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Natalie!
