Words, deeds, actions and reactions can and do sometimes have far reaching effects. Word have the power to uplift, brighten someones day and positively impact peoples lives. On the downside the reverse is also true.

Have you ever had a discussion with a friend, neighbour, collegue and found out months later what an impact your words had? Sometimes, what we dismiss as idle chatter can really fill anothers day with a wonderous sense of wellbeing or a deep, hearfelt dispair. We walk off blissfully unaware of either impact, ready to carry on with our lives as usual.

How wonderful is it to find out that something you said positively impacted someone. How hard to undo an off-the-cuff thoughtless word, that months later, the receiver of those words is still paining over.

Be careful how you use and harness the power of the spoken word. The effects can be eternal.

27 years today!

Happy 2th Anniversary Honey!

I love you today as yesterday, but on a deeper, more mature level. When someone says “I would take a bullet for you” I don’t know if it’s true or not, and I don’t really care, because their words aren’t aimed at me . When you say it, I know it’s carved in stone, solid as rock, etched firmly on your heart and mind.

When I am low, when I am down, you are my knight in shining armour, the one person I know I call, count and rely on. For the times my world is falling apart, when I can’t do anything right, when my sanity hangs by a thread, I know your arms will stop me from falling. Your words will brighten my day, bring a smile to my face, make me a laugh until I cry, then laugh some more.

Our time together is like one big roller coaster ride, I wouldn’t have it any other way. We never know what’s round the next corner, up the road or over the hill. We make our plans and life throws us a curve ball, things we never even thought possible have, do and will happen. I love my life with you!! I don’t think any of our plans have ever turned out exactly as we predicted. I wouldn’t change a thing. Neither the good times nor the bad. It’s the hard times we live together that make me realize that for most of our marriage, I have been lucky enough (dare I say blessed enough) to be living life feeling as if I am soaring on the wings of an eagle.

Thank you for being there, loving me, loving our children, for building a life together.

Thank you for choosing me to be your partner.

I love you, I love you, I love you.

moving forward

In the interests of moving forward spiritually, as opposed to what I have been doing, which is nothing, (and possibly sliding backwards merely through my inability/lack of motivation to actually do anything), I am making a stand! No longer shall I JUST go to church when it doesn't interfere with any other sphere of my life. NAY!. Bible reading shall from now on be done in a consistent, contemplative way. Time WILL and has been allocated for this purpose.

Up until now, I have been doing the same things and expecting different outcomes! Whoever said wisdom comes with age, never got the distinct pleasure of meeting me.

Sometimes, oceans fill with tears,
Still the tears keep flowing,
Sometimes, Words have the power to slowly crumble,
the solid rock.
Sometimes, the wounds, freshly soothed and balmed,
Just will not heal.
Sometimes, the ones you love most,
hurt the deepest.

Just an observation

Families. They love passionately, wound deeply and forgive the unforgivable.

Its a lifeforce.
It's a new opportunity
in disguise.

Wishing so very much that smiting
was back in vogue!
I could hold a good ol' fashioned,
humdinger of a Smite-fest!
