They can incite feelings of passion. They can destroy a person’s future.
Endearing words from a man can soften a woman’s heart. Words of hatred may create a war that can last many lifetimes.
But how do we form our words?
I believe that words springs forth from our hearts. They reflect what has been planted in our souls. They are fruits of the nourishment we give to our minds.
A beautiful child becomes hideous if lewd words are common to his mouth.
A pretty girl becomes ugly when curses are released from her lips.
The most handsome man becomes intolerable when only insults are spewed out from his mouth.
A famous or rich person may be ostracized if words of grievance or lies are his constant utterance.
A loving mother would not constantly torture her kids with words of negativism. It would be hard to respect a father who only bellows out insults to his children. It would be difficult to listen to men of God when all they have to offer are doomsday predictions.
If our eyes are the windows to our soul, then words are mirrors of our hearts.
I have been a recipient of painful words. I know how a heart can suffer from unjust accusations.
I have learned to temper my words. It is not easy though. I still fail many times. I still purposely and unwittingly cause a sting or two in innocent and guilty hearts.
Fortunately for us, each day brings a new beginning to change. To be an envoy of hope and encouragement. To let others know through our words that we are followers of the King and His Son.
Our words mirror our hearts. We should mirror Christ.

Il faudrait savoir qui je suis
Pour me comprendre,
Il faudrait connaître ma vie
Et pour l'apprendre, devenir mon ami,
Pour me comprendre, il aurait fallu au moins ce soir
Pouvoir surprendre le chemin d'un de mes regards
Triste mais tendre, perdu dans le hasard
Je l'ai connue toute petite
Dans les bras de sa grande maman
Dommage, dommage, j'aimais tellement son visage
Pour me comprendre, il faudrait savoir le décor,
De mon enfance,
Le souffle de mon frère qui dort
La résonnance, de mes premiers accords
Pour me comprendre, il faudrait connaitre mes nuits,
Mes rêves d'amour, et puis ces longues insomnies,
Quand vient le jour, la peur, d'affronter la vie,
Il y a peut-être quelque part
Un bonheur dont j'aurait eu ma part
Dommage, dommage, j'aimais tant certains paysages
Pour me comprendre, il faudrait la conaître mieux,
Que je ne pourrais
Il faudrait l'aimer plus que moi, et je vous dirai,
Que je n'y crois vraiment pas,
Pour me comprendre, il faudrait avoir rencontré
L'amour, le vrai, vous comprenez le grand amour
Et savoir qu'après à quoi sert de vivre encore un jour
