Words Spoken

Words spoken in haste
can never be erased!
Guard your words;
speak only to encourage,
teach, or express love.

Who has not uttered words
we wish we could retrieve?
We rail against physical abuse
but often accept and give verbal abuse
Without understanding that words
Wound souls, without reprieve.

It took me a long time to recognize
verbal abuse, mine and others;
it was how our family talked to each other.
No longer do I accept disrespectful
cruel verbiage from anybody,
including myself!

May our words inspire,
fill others with love and hope;
comfort, guide, and encourage
all to know that they are beloved,
cherished by our Creator
from whence we come!

    Pat Querida,

    More and more I see how we have to be selective about our thoughts and words. Everything is energy and has a vibration, Thank You for honoring Dr. Emoto’s work.
    You are a blessed soul, Pat!
    Love and Light

    This is very beautiful and inspiring dearest Pat.
    Words spoken…I am also thinking of the unspoken words and
    how many times I didn’t use them…

    As promised in the new year – I will use “cancel” many times, until my mind catches on … thank you for reminding me once again!
