Is the PEN MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD?

Good Morning!

    A few points to ponder.     The words that come out of our mouths can bring LIFE, and LOVE and HEALING……but what about the destructive ones?    Out in the atmosphere – difficult to take back……. ‘I will NEVER FORGIVE YOU’.     Spoken words do not directly kill like a sword – but can they destroy?

F311 Russell Falls.

I believe they can….words of hatred, unkindness and vitriolic outpourings though they may give relief to the one writing them, can be legacies that live long after they have gone.   Our written words are vitally important.  A turn of phrase in a letter or somethings ‘out there’ in cyber space could destroy someone’s day in the distant future.

One person whose writings not only left a legacy in his own day but changes lives today as encouragement and comfort.    (Like THE WORD written…..and THE WORD Christ) in his short life his LOVE for His Lord has lingered through the years and among the millions of words he penned gems of beauty and Hope continue to be discovered and inspire new generations.

You can never measure what God will do through you…….if…you keep your relationship right with Him.   Whatever circumstances you are in, and whatever you may meet day by day, He is pouring rivers of living water through you….

Oswald Chambers

SOARING BALLOONS

With our mouths and with our PENS may we also CHOOSE ‘wisely’ and honour HIM in this week.

A challenge but what JOY we know if we truly are in relationship with HIM.

live!                                                   LOVE!                          EXTRAVAGANTLY KNOW JOY!!

 

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
