DSC_0076I've been thinking about words lately,

words 22

DSC_0076how important they are,

DSC_0076especially words of inspiration.

DSC_0076There have been quotes that I have cherished throughout my life.

DSC_0076Words that encouraged me to climb to new heights.

you always pass failure on the way to success.

DSC_0076Scripture that has comforted my soul

word fourteen

DSC_0076and made me stronger.

DSC_0076Words of inspiration I have found that helped me during those difficult times.

DSC_0076There were new quotes and sayings that I found on distant shores.

one joy scatters a hundred griefs

DSC_0076Always there have been those words that have made me stop dead in my tracks.

DSC_0076Oh, but there are words that have made me want to crawl inside of them,

boots and dandelions

DSC_0076because I have had to learn to live them.

DSC_0076These are the words that have been the most treasured words of all.

DSC_0076Speaking of words, I love the lyrics to this song, Lost in Space.

Thank you for this post, dear Karen. I needed it.

Words are powerful, They can be a gift. Hopefully, those that use words to hurt will be gifted with some that heal.
