The Gift of Words

I have always had a kinship with words. Words are important to me. They are how I learn. They are a way to lose myself and become someone else. Words written to me mean a great deal. They are treasured. The words below constitute a small part of something that was written for me by someone very dear. I wanted to share them with you in the hope that they might encourage you as they have me.

“Develop good habits… I am talking about a conscience effort to train yourself to be kind, gentle and caring towards those around you, specifically the family you live with… Sweetness will win you so much more [than harshness]. If you learn it [now], you will not have to learn it (or suffer from not having it) later. It is the key to so much.”

And these from from someone even dearer:

“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.” -Galatians 6:10 (NKJV)

  2. Hello cousin! (remember me?)

    “Sweetness will win you so much more [than harshness]” … yes indeed, this reminds me of something my mother use to say, “you attract more bees with honey than vinegar”, and it’s so very true! I enjoy reading your blogs and am glad to see how well you’re doing and how knowledgeable you have become.

    Keep up the great writing!

    your cousin,
    Chris
