  1. Glad to see you back! Words can be quite hurtful, but I also think a person can separate them from self.

    What someone else says is about them, not you. When someone says it to be hurtful on purpose, I suppose that might be different, but I think it still says more about them than it does about you.

    What do you usually make for gifts? I’ve not done any buying or making yet and I’m starting to freak out a little.

  2. K-Lee, I’m totally with you on this. Words have energy, and energy has power. Joyce Meyer is one of my favorite teachers–I volunteer for her every year when she is in Phoenix. Truly, the power of life and death is in the tongue. So we need to enLIVEn ourselves by choosing our words carefully. Btw, I’m greatly enjoying the pillow you sent. Blessings! –Kebba

  3. Yes, I can relate. Words are very powerful. When you want to hurt someone, you speak words that can slice through one’s heart. When you want to encourage someone, you speak uplifting words to help him give his best. Sometimes, I am guilty of not thinking before saying the words, but I am also trying my best to avoid doing so. I try to choose the words before opening my mouth.

  4. Ah, words!!! How we talk to our selves is a huge part of this. They say if you eat alone a lot to still practice good manners….Same goes for how we speak to ourselves….That is what I am clued into big time here. Thank you, Karen Lee Banks!

    Words hold so much power, and are used for good and bad. I’m struggling with this right now, as I work through some old issues with my hubby. Trying to watch the words I speak very carefully!
