The Words We Write

After leaving chat last night, I tripped over a dusty old box marked "K :princess: Blogs 2008". Now what on earth was that doing here. That should be up in the attic. I noticed the lid was off too and next to it was... an old blog entitled He Is The God Of Peace! Hmm... what was that doing out here?

Upon further investigation, I discovered that Shani Matthews (@Shanijane) had been rummaging around the CB attic just like I do from time to time. She found this old blog which was actually written 33 months ago, as of yesterday. It touched me to know that the words I had written so long ago, were not lost. They were still there, waiting to bless someone and yesterday, they blessed a friend. :dance:

When we write or even speak, we often act like our words will simply vanish into thin air. We have an out of sight, out of mind attitude. Last night I was reminded that this is not always so. In fact, I suspect this is a false assumption more often than we suspect.

Are the words you write, a blessing to someone or are they destructive? James talks about the tongue and we think the "tongue" is restricted to the verbal word but in this day and age, it is not. The "tongue" also manifests itself through our fingers in regards to the words we write.

There is a children's song I learned long ago. The words are:

Oh be careful little eyes what you see,
Oh be careful little eyes what you see,
For the Father up above,
Is looking down in love,
So be careful little eyes what you see!

Oh be careful little ears what you hear,
Oh be careful little ears what you hear,
For the Father up above,
Is looking down in love,
So be careful little ears what you hear!

Oh be careful little mouth what you say,
Oh be careful little mouth what you say,
For the Father up above,
Is looking down in love,
So be careful little mouth what you say!

Oh be careful little hands what you do,
Oh be careful little hands what you do,
For the Father up above,
Is looking down in love,
So be careful little hands what you do!

Oh be careful little feet where you go,
Oh be careful little feet where you go,
For the Father up above,
Is looking down in love,
So be careful little feet where you go!

I'd like to add another verse to this:

Oh be careful little fingers what you type,
Oh be careful little fingers what you type,
For the Father up above,
Is looking down in love,
So be careful little fingers what you type!

May the words we write bless, encourage and strengthen those who read them.

Blessings!
